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.

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.

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’

Sunburst Birthday

Happy Tuesday! I have a card for you that I completed for a business builder challenge last week. I learned the sunburst technique and I {{LOVE}} it! I will be doing more of these very soon.

This was also a new color combination for me and I love the blending of fall color in Hello Honey with the brightness of summer Coastal Cabana. 

I will be sharing how to do this technique at my Technique Class this month and I would love to show you how! Just email me to reserve your space.

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!

Red, White and Blue!

It’s time for another Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop! Welcome to my blog in the hop. You may have just arrived here from Joni’s blog. Didn’t you just love her card!!!! This month, in honor of our nation’s birthday AND the new 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up! Catalog our theme is red, white and blue….with something NEW! So, here is my creation!



The inspiration for the card came from other crafty friends on Facebook and I knew that I had to use this idea for this month’s card! The colors I chose were Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White. I used two new sets for this design. The flag image is using stamps from the Work of Art set and the sentiment is the new Watercolor Thank You single stamp. It is very hard to see in this photo but the sentiment is embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. I love that our regular inks have enough juice to emboss with. To finish this card off I added a few rhinestones in place of the stars.
