ICS iambringingbirthdayback

Hello hoppers! I am so glad to have you here! Thanks for hopping along with us at
Inspire, Create, Share.

 

This month we are celebrating birthdays! A few month’s ago, a Stampin’ Up! employee from the home office named Shannon West decided that she wanted to start sending hand stamped cards in the mail so she did a Facebook shout out for anyone and everyone who wanted to receive a card. As you can imagine, the response was overwhelming and a movement began. The #hashtag
#iambringingbirthdaysback went viral and many demonstrators around the globe have joined in!
I love sending cards in the mail so of course I jumped in as well!
This card was featured at a recent technique class that I host monthly. The technique is called the Spotlight Technique and I am sure you can see why. It is actually quite easy and can work with almost any line image. The possibilities are endless!
Now it’s is time to hop on over to my friend Darla’s blog and see what she has created for us! I am sure you are going to love it!

ICS Blog Hop Welcome Spring!

Welcome hoppers to another month of Inspire, Create, Share! We are so glad you are here!

This month we are celebrating all things Spring! And who doesn’t love this season. New beginnings, new life, and fresh starts! For my project this month I wanted to make something fun and fresh, and a light hearted way to celebrate Easter.
 This card and project are great for sharing the message of Easter in a fun way! The large egg could be seen as an egg, or as the rock that covered the door of the tomb of Jesus.

This adorable bakers box could be filled with treats and given to neighbors, friends, teachers or even your church staff!
Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Now it’s time to see what Tina has in store for us.

ICS Blog Hop It’s a Love Thing

Hello Everyone and welcome to another Inspire, Create, Share blog hop. This month we are celebrating love!

My card was created for a friends winter wedding last month. I was inspired by the wedding colors and the snow effects were used to match the decor she chose for her special day.

The front of the card

The inside of the card.

I absolutely love this Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit. I can be used for so many occasions! I think that using a layer of Glimmer Paper really gave this project bling and the bride for the wedding LOVES bling. The sentiments are from the Rose Wonder stamp set, which is one of my favorites from the Occasions catalog. I find it so versatile.

ICS Blog Hop – Let’s Sale-A-Brate

Hello Hoppers! Happy New Year! Welcome to the first ICS Blog hop of 2016. I am so glad that you are here. Today we are showing off our favorite products from the just released Occasions catalog or the wonderful products you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration!

My card for you today is using a set from the Occasions catalog. When I first saw it I knew immediatly I had to have it -The Rose Wonder bundle.

This image reminds me of the very popular Manhattan Flower we had a few years back. It is large and perfect to be the focal point of any project. For my card I embossed the flower using Versamark ink and gold embossing powder on our Shimmer White paper. I then water colored the image using reinkers and an aquapainter. It gives the flower a soft look and the shimmer of the gold along with the paper is a stunning elegance in real life. I wish that the photo could show you the true beauty here.

Now it’s time to hop over to Andrea’s Blog and see what she has in store for you.

Welcome to the last Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop of 2015! We are so glad to have you here! You may have hopped here from Deb’s Blog, or this may be your starting point. Just follow the hop along and you will be sure to see many great projects tonight!

Our theme this month is Gift Packaging and that is one of my favorite things to create! I love crafting 3-D items and this is the perfect holiday to really show that off! This project is also wonderful for the Stampin Royalty Challenge of the week and I will be submitting it there as well!
My project was created for my annual gift packaging class held last weekend. I love to do something Santa related each year. 
This year I used the Berry Basket for a quick and super cute project. This could be stuffed with anything from candies, to small gifts or even gift cards. This project is great for a guy or a gal and who doesn’t love Santa!

November D’s Stamping Team USA Christmas

Hello everyone! Welcome to D’s Stapming Team USA Blog Hop! I am so happy to have you here, from either my very best friend Nichole’s blog or if you happen to be starting here.
I am so honored to be a guest hopper again this month. 

This month we are sharing some amazing Christmas creations. I love Christmas time and all the crafting fun to be had at this time of year. Today my project is a gift box that I created for our Team Inking Everything Christmas Party – happening right now!! At our team party every year the contents of the package are not as important as the wrap so we all try to go over the top when we can!!

This project was inspired by a box found in Becky Robert’s 12 Days of Christmas 2015. I love 3-D items so much and am always trying to find fun and creative projects to make, CASE and share! 
This box measures 5 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ when completed and is perfect for small gifts or treats.
 The glimmer paper snowflakes make a wonderful embellishment when attached to the silver cord on both sides with glue dots. I love the detail they add to this project overall.
Now – it’s time for my apology. I was in the crafting zone when I created this project and wasn’t thinking when I grabbed my favorite snowflake set to add a little design to the Designer Series Paper. Once I was finished I realized that it is a set that is no longer available for sale directly through Stampin’ Up! I am so sorry to do that to you guys! Please forgive my blogging faux pas! 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! It’s time to hop on over to Tina’s blog and she was she has for us. I would love to know what you think of my project, so please me some blog love in the comments!

ICS Blog Hop – Giving Thanks

It’s the first Wednesday in November and that means another ICS Blog Hop. This month we are giving thanks – and I have so much to be thankful for! I love thinking about gratitude, and how it makes me appreciate what I have in my life.
My card this month was featured at my technique class in October and I thought it was so fitting for this fall theme. I absolutly love the color blocking look and the frame looking out onto the fall scene is adorable!
I used the white shimmer paper for the scene and I wish that you could see it better. It almost looks like frost! This card may look difficult but it was so quick and easy once the block frame was created. I think this technique can be used for any card – I hope you will try it sometime.
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Darla and her sisters blog to see what wonderful projects they have for us this month.
Please let me know you were here by leaving me a comment and remember that you can subscribe to the blog and never miss another post.

ICS Blog Hop Fall for All

Welcome back hoppers for another month of ideas and inspiration. If you have arrived from Deb’s Blog, I am so glad you stopped by. Wasn’t her project just awesome! If this is your first stop on the hop – Welcome! Just follow the links at the end of each post so you are sure to not miss a thing!
 This month we are all focusing on fall. While fall is not my favorite season, I do love the gorgeous colors of the trees, all things pumpkin and the Thanksgiving holiday.
I also love this fall themed Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog. It made creating this card so quick and easy. Lots of layers really help the texture and then the fussy cut leaves and acorn were the finishing touches. I wanted the paper to be the star of the show so this card is actually embellishment free – not something I usually do.
Be sure to check back on Friday for the coordinating projects that I did with this card. They are so much fun and you won’t want to miss them!
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Tina’s Blog and see what she has in store for us. Please leave me some love in the form of a comment and let me know what you think of my card. I would love for you to subscribe to my blog and never miss a post!

ICS Blog Hop – Introducing the Holiday Catalog!

Hello Hoppers and welcome to the September edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. You may have hopped here from Amanda’s Blog or this could be your first stop. Either way, I am so glad to have you here.



 Today we are showcasing our favorite products from the just released 2015 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ Up! This year’s catalog is packed with so many amazing products – I want them all! If you don’t have a catalog yet and would like me to mail you one, just let me know!

One of my favorite bundles is the Jingle All the Way stamp set and matching Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies. As soon as I saw it during the unveiling at Stampin’ Up! North American Convention in July, I knew it would be one of the first things I purchased.


 This stamp set includes 13 stamps and 3 coordinating edgelits so that you are able to make a variety of scenes on your cards, scrapbooks pages or projects. Once cut, the edgelits can be flipped over to be used in reverse and adds even more versatility to the set. I cannot wait to share some of the other ways I have been using this set with you in the coming weeks and months. It is a stand out for sure! Using the 4 different colors of cardstock for this card gave the project depth and dimension and I think really helps set the scene. I love the glitter effect for snow using the Dazzling Details underneath the sleigh.  You can find all of the supplies used for my card at the bottom of this post and you can purchase all of them at my online store.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Deb’s Blog and see her fantastic project!

Hugs and Happy Stampin’

ICS Blog Hop – Butterflies are Free!

Welcome hoppers to the July edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! Welcome to those of your who have arrived here from Claudia’s Blog – didn’t you just love her card! If you arrived here all on your own – we are so glad to have you!
Our theme this month is Butterflies! Stampin’ Up! offers us quite a few choices in this area and is one of my most favorite images!
The card I have made for you this month is using the gorgeous stamp set Butterfly Basics and the coordinating Framelit. This is one of the wonderful bundles carried over from our Occasions Catalog and I could not be happier. I just adore this bundle. This card design will work in so many color combinations and with just a change of sentiment, can be used for so many different occasions. I love the muted colors on the cardstock so that the large butterfly image can really be the focal point. Below you will find a list of the supplies used in the making of this card and as always you can purchase these supplies at my Stampin’ Store Online.  
Now, it’s time to hop on over to Joni’s blog and see what she has for you! Thanks so much for hopping by. Be sure to leave me love in the form of a comment and subscribe to the blog so you never miss a post!
