Fancy Friday - Case the Catalog

Hello and welcome back! It's time for this month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop. I'm here with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). This month we are CASEing (copy and share everything) a favorite sample from one of the current catalogs. You'll love what you see tonight on our fancy blog hop. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Dani's blog. I just love her fun style, which matches her personality!

Cake Soiree Cards!

Hello and welcome back! I'm sharing three cards that I made with the Cake Soiree Stamp Set and coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits Dies. These are in the main catalog this year, and I wanted to give them some love. I picked a nice, bright color combo to work with. If you've been to my blog before, you won't be surprised by that! The colors I used were Lovely Lipstick, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Soft Sea Foam, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Call Me Clover.

TGIFC204 - Blends Spotlight

Hello and welcome back! I'm here with this week's TGIF Challenge, and our focus is on Stampin' Blends markers.


I made a simple card, and focused on the beautiful colors you can get from the Stampin' Blends markers. Plus, I love a rainbow, don't you? I used both the dark and the light markers in Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry. I stamped the letters overlapping from the Lined Alphabet Stamp Set in Black Memento Ink. I wanted to get an ombre look (light to dark) from top to bottom, and also highlight what the colors look like when blended with their neighboring color.

Bloom by Bloom Card

Hello and welcome back! I have a congratulations card today featuring the Bloom by Bloom Stamp Set and stamping on Crumb Cake cardstock. I thought it would be fun to stamp some bright and white inks onto Crumb Cake, and adhered the results to a Thick Whisper White card base. I used Poppy Parade, Pacific Point, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Balmy Blue and Craft Whisper White inks to stamp the flowers, leaves and dots with. I used the Banners for You Stamp Set and the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies for the greeting in Pacific Point and Crumb Cake inks.

Ghosts of This Christmas Past

Hello and welcome back! Since I've been sharing a lot of Christmas preparations for 2019, I thought I would also go back and share my cards that I sent for 2018, thus the ghosts of Christmas past title. Man of the products I used are in the 2018-2019 Main Catalog, so you can copy the ideas if you choose. I used the pink constellation patterned paper from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper. My favorite thing about this card is that I die cut the star from a scrap piece of paper, and then sponged some of the shimmer paint through it. Plus twine and sequins finish any card right?

More Christmas Prep

Hello and welcome back! I've been doing some more Christmas prep. I made a fun set of tags last year with the Stitched Felt Embellishments, and you can find the details here. I still had more pieces of the felt left, so I just made more of each of the tag designs. This time I used the Real Red 1/8" Solid Ribbon for all of the tags, and added a circular element for the ribbon to tie through. I love how these turned out!

Christmas Prep

Hello and welcome back! Every year I have more Christmas project ideas than I have time to complete, and I have to hurry to get my Christmas cards completed. Actually, I usually send them and my annual letter out late! Just ask my friends and family. So, for those reasons and because winter has been lingering in my area, I decided this was the perfect year to start my Christmas prep for 2019 early in the year. I'll be sharing both cards and tags, and maybe other items throughout the year this year. For the first half of the year, I'll use stamp sets and supplies that are in the annual catalog or carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. For the second half of the year, I'm sure I'll be featuring new products from the next Holiday Catalog!
