Flowering Fields Friend Card

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I am sharing one of my creations using sets from the Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration catalog.

The flowers and butterfly stamps were from the "Flowering Fields" stamp set.  I used the blender pens and colored in the flowers with Old Olive, Hello Honey and Rich Razzleberry inks.

The card stock is Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White with accents of Into the Woods Designer Series paper.  I added Rich Razzleberry ribbon with a small banner with the Rich Razzleberry ink and the sentiment from the "Hello" Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

Bright and Cheery!

The weekend is here!  Last night I stayed up late and got my creative MOJO going.  I love the colors and simplistic design of this card.  The vibrant colors just make you smile..... :)

I used the Stampin' Up Suite Sayings stamp set from the current Occasions catalog for the sentiment. 

The card colors are Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay with accents of the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  I think the silver sequins and cording add a lovely touch.

We all have people we are grateful for just because they are a part of your life.  It just takes a moment to show them how much you care.

For your convenience I have included a materials listing below to help you recreate this lovely card.

Stampin' Friends - January Lots of Love Blog Hop

Happy Thursday!  Welcome to the January Stampin' Friends blog hop.  This month's theme is "Lots of Love".  Can you believe that Valentine's Day is just around the corner?  If you are joining from Andrea's blog, I am sure that she had wonderful projects that make your heart full of joy.

This month we are excited to have three guest hoppers that you should definitely check out.  

This month love is in the air!  I used some of the new products from the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog to create this lovely card for my sweetie.  The sentiment is from the Going Global stamp set.  I used the Happy Heart embossing folder on Whisper White with Basic Black for the background.  An accent of silver glimmer paper with black baker's twine adds a special touch.  The Sweetheart punch was used for the connecting hearts.  

My project is a super cute treat bag that anyone would be happy to receive. Just looking at it makes me happy......who needs candy?  I used the glimmer paper along with the Real Red card stock to coordinate with the card.  The sentiments are from the Bloomin' Love Stampin' Up set.

I hope you have enjoyed the projects created this month.  I have created a supply listing below for your convenience.

OSAT Blog Hop - No Rules New Year

Hello and welcome to 2016!  Today I am hopping along with the OSAT Blog Hoppers with the January "No Rules" blog hop.  This means that there is no one theme, so I am sure that you will find plenty of inspiration with the projects that we have here.  Don't forget to click on the "Next" button below or the individual links listed.

For my card, I decided to do a clean and simple design using one of the new stamp sets being offered during Stampin' Up's Sale-A-Bration going on now.  This stamp set is called "Hello".  I embossed the large "Hello" with Pool Party on the Bermuda Bay card stock.  The rest of the sentiment was stamped using the black memento ink.  I accented the card with pool party twine and hearts punched with the heart border punch using the silver glimmer paper.  This card is short and to the point, but I love it.  If you would like to earn this stamp for free, please check out the link to my store below.

I needed a desk calendar for 2016, so I created a new one using a template from one that I made previously in my up-line's monthly club.  This is just slightly adjusted from the original.  It is a Tee-Pee design.  

Each quarter has it's own side, you just flip it over when you need to change the seasons.  Multiple stamp sets were used for the sentiments, but the main stamp set was the Stampin' Up "Sheltering Tree".  I used a variety of paper and ink colors accented by linen thread.

 The first portion of the calendar uses Mint Macaron, Sahara Sand and Early Espresso.

I am sure that the scenery is hitting close to home for a lot of individuals!

Spring is just around the corner!  This scene uses the Watermelon Wonder and Old Olive colors.

Don't you just love the flowers across the background?

Warm weather and the great outdoors are part of the summer time fun.

The little bicycle is adorable!

The crisp cooler air of Fall brings the beautiful colors of the leaves..... both on the tree and on the ground!

The little rake is a cute touch with the little leaves peppering the ground.
I hope you have enjoyed both my card creation and my calendar project (it is on it's way to my office tomorrow!).  Products used are listed below for your convenience.  

Now it is on to Megan's blog.  I am sure you will love the creations of all the other hoppers, please check them all out and show some love.

Now is the best time to place your orders for your Stampin' Up Annual Catalog items and the new Occasions catalog.  For every $50 in merchandise purchased you can receive one item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Click the link to my online store below to download the new catalogs.  I will be happy to help you in any way.  Happy Stampin'!
