Blossoming Basket Bundle

Hello, crafty friends. Today, I am sharing a new stamp set called: Blossoming Basket and its coordinating Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder called: Basket Weave that is offered together as a BUNDLE in the second release of Sale-a-bration items you can earn for FREE with a $100 order.

It's such a pretty basket of flowers and so easy to color with the Stampin' Blends. I used Ivory and Bronze for the basket, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coal, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight for the flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  Doesn't it match so nicely with the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP?

The Basket Weave embossing folder is so cool!  It's so cool that it will be carrying over to the next annual catalog! But why wait to get yours?  Get it as a bundle with the Blossoming Basket stamp set. :)


I have a new IN THE MAIL card class for the Petal Palette Bundle with three different purchasing options.  Check out my class page HERE.

Place a $50 (before shipping/tax) using my February Host Code: WWMR9HXU, and receive the Petal Pair Embossing folders as my FREE gift to you!  Details are HERE.

Happy Stamping!

Sunday Stamps! #SSC172

Hello, crafty friends. Today starts a new challenge over at Sunday Stamps!.  This week we are working with a sketch by Heidi.  Here's my card using two fabulous sets: Beautiful Day and Amazing You.

I recently had a friend over to practice coloring with the Stampin' Blends and we talked about how coloring is therapeutic. Can you relate?  So, with coloring was on my mind, I decided to give a go at the Beautiful Day stamp set.  A big bold flower with a thick outline is perfect to practicing your blending skills with the Stampin' Blends markers.


To create this card, I actually started with the ribbon.  I looked thru my ribbon stash to find what matched my Stampin' Blends markers.  I chose the Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon from Sale-a-bration and went from there.

Card Supplies:

  • Beautiful Day and Amazing You stamp sets (SAB item);
  • Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, and Whisper White cardstock;
  • Bubbles & Fizz DSP (SAB item), Wood Textures DSP;
  • Early Espresso and Memento Black ink;
  • Celebrate You Thinlits Dies (SAB item), Calypso Coral Combo Pack, Old Olive Combo Pack and Daffodil Delight dark Stampin' Blends, Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (SAB item), Aqua Painter, Clear Wink of Stella.

Here's this weeks sketch challenge.

Epic Celebrations

Hello, stampers. Today, I am sharing the birthday card I made for my oldest son's birthday using the Epic Celebrations stamp set.  He finished up his college studies in December from the University of Minnesota in Duluth.  Currently, he still living in Duluth.  Happy Birthday, Josh!  Hope you have a great day!

I used Brusho Crystal Colour to create my watercolor background.  I also water colored the guitar using my Aqua Painter with Island Indigo and Smoky Slate ink.  I added a lot of fun elements such as: Tutti-frutti Backed Sequins, Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape, Hearts & Stars Elements and Regal Enamel Shapes.  The guitar and sentiment were hand cut and adhered with Dimensionals.

Sadly, Stampin' UP! has just informed Demonstrators that the Fast Fuse is already sold out!

Epic Celebrations

Hello, crafty friends. Today, I have a few fun cards to share with you using the Epic Celebrations Sale-a-bration stamp set. Say that 3 times! :).  I used this set to create my oldest son's birthday card  recently and decided to make another fun card while it was still sitting out.  Here's the first one using Lemon Lime Twist as my theme.

Because this set has a doodle type of sketch effect, it is easy to watercolor just by slapping on a little ink without much effort or thought.

Here's my second one focusing on Smoky Slate:

And I couldn't forget to make a feminine themed one, so I made one using Powder Pink:

These cards will be perfect for the young adults in your life.  How did I pick my colors?  Easy! Take a look at all your beloved ribbon just sitting there.  Grab your favorite (or neglected) ribbon and here's your CASE!
