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!

SIP Challenge 30!

Happy Friday Friends! Today I am playing along with the color challenge over at Stamps, Ink, Paper. They have a great color challenge for us!
And here is my card. I love the heart clouds that coordinate with the airplane. How cute is that??
 I also wanted to show you a close up of the awesome gold thread I used on the banners. It is so fine and delicate.

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.

A woodland Christmas

Today’s post is full of good news and cheer! This morning it was announced that the wildly popular Woodland Embossing Folder would be returning to our product line in June!!! I am so very excited about this news. This product was such a hot item that Stampin’ Up! could hardly keep it in stock and I feel that it can be used for all 4 seasons, for almost any occasion and is a great option when needing a masculine card. 
When I created this card for this week’s color challenge over at SSInkspiration the news of the return had not yet been announced. What great timing for me to be able to show you this card AND share the good news all in one post!
The challenge for this week is
As soon as I saw them I knew that products I was going to want to use. I love these as Christmas colors but I think they are also very masculine as well!
My project for this challenge

I absolutely love the look of the white trees with the Taupe background and the fussy cut ornaments really stand out against the neutral tones.. I was Facetiming with my BFF in WA State and she was a huge help in my design process because it was after midnight when I was working on this! Thanks friend!

Making Spirits Bright

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Did you see the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse last night? Amazing wasn’t it?
Today I wanted to share with you one of the cards we will make this week at the monthly Christmas Card Stamp a Stack. Guests will have their choice of card base to make it even more personal.

I absolutly love the simplicity of this card and the vintage, distressed look that the ink gives to the trees of the Woodlands Embossing folder.
 Woodlands Embossing folder
Add texture and depth to the trees by using a dauber and ink onto the raised portions of your cardstock.
This ornaments and sentiment could be changed to any color and would still be stunning. Add a few gold accents and voila! Clean, simple and gorgeous!
Want to try this yourself? You can! Join me Thursday at 6:30pm or Friday morning at 11AM and get a hard start on your cards at my monthly Christmas Stamp A Stack. Email me for more information or to reserve your spot.

Inspire Create Share Blog Hop August 2014

I cannot believe how fast the time flies! Here it is, another monthly Inspire, Create, Share blog hop. Welcome to those who have arrived here from Tina’s Blog! For everyone else you can start here and travel in the full circut around to all the other bloggers in our hop.

This month’s theme is black and white, with a pop of color if you choose! This card was inspired by a card that I created for our ICS Blog Hop Swap at the Inspire, Create, Share 2014 Convention. Here is our group photo, taken the last day of Convention. It was an amazing experience to be there in Salt lake with 4,000 other demonstrators and I am already planning next years trip. I would love to have you join my team and we can enjoy it together!

So, now for my card! I wanted to give the original design a little tweaking and add a small pop of color so here is what I came up with~

The card base is white, which is hard to see in this photo because of the backdrop. I used the Large Polka Dot embossing folder (#133739) on 2/3rd of the top white layer and stamped the sentiment  which comes from the set Trust God (#132094/126702) right above on the non embossed portion. The flowers were stamped in Basic Black from the Petite Petals set (#133152/133155) and the 3 lower flowers were popped up with  Dimensionals (#104430). The final pop of color is the Lost Lagoon Stitched Stain Ribbon (#133672) and is a favorite of mine in ANY color!

Thanks for stopping by and happy stampin’!

Hugs!
