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.

Sparkle and Shine!

Hello stamping friends! Here is another great challenge from the sweet ladies over at Stampin Royalty. This week the challenge is to create something with Sparkle and Shine.
 Nothing says bling like Gold! I love using it! And with our new Gold Wink of Stella pens it is super easy to get that sparkle and shine on any project.
My flower was watercolored using ink from the lid of the pad and a blender pen. The few outer edge highlights were added with the Wink of Stella and the inner flower is Wink of Stella as well.
It has been so much fun to be a part of the team at Stampin’ Royalty! I have enjoyed my time with them and being a Stampin’ Goddess has been a blast!

SSInk Color Challenge

Happy weekend friends! It is busy here this weekend but I have a card to share with you. I love the color challenges and this week I am playing along with SSInk.
And my card
 The paper from the Love Blossoms stack coordinates so well with the colors of this challenge I knew I had to try to use them together.

Inking Everything Facebook Hop

Happy Monday! Today we are having a Facebook hop with the gals from Inking Everything! I wanted to share details about my card here and then encourage you to head over there and check out the rest of the amazing creations that the ladies have made.

For our hop we made a card and a coordinating project. First I want to show you my card.

With Valentine’s Day coming I thought it would be great to get a head start on the holiday! The stamp set featured is the Bloomin’ Love set and the gorgeous paper is from the coordinating stack called Love Blossoms. I used our newish whisper white card stock and it is amazing! What a sturdy base it created!

Next I created a coordinating box to hold a yummy treat!
This box is the perfect size for a little treat to give to someone special. I love how quick and easy it is to decorate for any occasion. The honeycombs are the perfect size for this project. Isn’t it just adorable!

Pointsettia Presents

I love the color challenge at FabFriday last week and knew that this paper would be a great compliment for it.  

The weekend before Christmas and everyone is hurrying and scurrying about, trying to get things done. Here is a cute and quick gift that we put together for our youth leaders at church.

Coordinating card and homemade coffee sugar scrub
The lid of the jar be decorated using the Pointsettia punch. I love this punch!
I hope you can take some time this week and reflect on the reason for Christmas and what it means. Our family is taking the next two weeks off and are looking forward to fun, fellowship and celebrating Jesus.

Fab Friday 78 Challenge

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend! The last few days have been so busy, with something going on every night this week. It has been a bit of a challenge getting craft time in but I was happy to have a few free hours this afternoon.
The challenge this week from the fine folks at Fab Friday was this sketch
 I love the simplicity of this design. Here is my take on it
I realized this may be the first time I have actually used my brick wall embossing folder. I am doing to have to change that pronto!

A reason for the season

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are having a great holiday weekend. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and much food was eaten. Friday I did some Black Friday shopping with my favorite teenager and today I had a great day helping people create adorable gift packaging for the holidays.
I have a card to share with you today. This card was created for the SSInk Challenge and it is my first time participating with them. I love the mystery challenge we were given for the week. 

My card:

This stamp set is so easy to use and in my opinion has the best sentiments ever! I stamped the outline in the Stazon ink, stamped the flowers with Real Red, the petals with Pear Pizaaz and then blended each of those colors with a blender pen. I love the soft, watercolor look this set has.

Falling for Challenges!

Happy Hump Day friends! How are your Thanksgiving plans and prep coming? Today I was able to get the cranberry sauce made and boiled the eggs for deviled eggs. As my reward – I stamped!!
The card I designed has 2 challenges in mind. The first was the Fab Friday77 challenge. This is a new challenge for me and I love the colors we were given this week. 
The second challenge I chose was the MojoMonday challenge. I love this week’s sketch and could see it being used over and over again!
I know there are not many days left to use the beautiful colors and papers of fall so I am taking full advantage of this while I can! I knew as soon as I saw the color combo that I would use the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.
This is my first card using the Poinsettia punch and I can already tell it is going to be a favorite of mine. I am SO excited that it will be carried over into the spring! This stamp set has been a fall favorite of mine forever and I grab it every change I get.

ICS Blog Hop Introducing the 2015-2017 In Colors

Welcome to the June edition of the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop. If you hopped here from Tina’s blog, welcome! And if you are just starting here we are so glad to have you!

This month we are showcasing the brand new 2015-2017 In Colors. In case you haven’t heard of them yet they are Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush (an excellent Seattle Seahawks color by the way!!), Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron.
Now, for my project. I wanted to really focus on the new colors and not distract you with a new image as well so I chose to use an old favorite of mine instead. The lighting in my space wasn’t the greatest when I took this photo so I hope that you can get a good sense of the colors. All of the supplies needed to make this card are listed below and you can shop my store 24/7.

Now, it’s time to hop on over and see what Darla and her sisters have created for this month.
