Stampers By The Dozen - Critter Fun!

Happy weekend readers!  It's time for the next Stamper's By The Dozen Hop of the new year!  This month I am very excited about the projects as we are making projects with a touch of critter fun!  

For my project, I KNEW I had to use the new Bird Banter set! I received it in my order this week and it is one of my favorite sets from the Occasions catalog! I love how whitty the set is and the birds are perfect for stacking on top of each other.  

I saw this layout online and love the black, white, and yellow colors on the card.  I used Daffodil Delight cardstock for the balloon which I stamped and hand cut out.  For the toucan, I colored him in with Stampin' Write markers (but you could have used the new Stampin' Blends on him too).  The patterned paper is from the Tutti Frutti 6x6 inch Designer Series Paper Stack.  I sponged the sentiment in Daffodil Delight as well to give it a pop of color.

ICS Blog Hop - Celebrate You and a Color Challenge!

Happy February! The first Wednesday of the month is here and it's time for another edition of the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop!  
I can't believe how fast January went and how we are in our second month of Sale-A-Bration already!  Sale-A-Bration is Stampin' Up!s biggest annual promotion where for every $50 you purchase before tax and shipping, you receive a free item! New this year is the addition of a second tier for $100 where you can choose bigger and better items for your free item, and this month I am highlighting one of these items - the Celebrate You Thinlet Dies and another Sale-A-Bration item, a $50 option, Amazing You which coordinates with the dies!  
Celebrate You Thinlit Dies
Amazing You Clear-Mount Stamp Set
This month we are switching things up!  A call went out on the Design Team page about how we needed a theme for the month and I put out the idea of a Color Challenge...and it was chosen!  Color Challenges are great to get your mind working in ways that are different than normal.  With challenges, you can ONLY use the colors listed, no Whisper White, no Basic Black only the specific colors!  I really love these colors together!  

When I picked them out, I knew exactly the type of project I had in mind.  The project would be a perfect project for the new Stamparatus stamping tool to line all the words up with each other, but unfortunately my tool won't be here until March!  To create this card, I used the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper in the Bermuda Bay color for my base.  To line up my stamps, I used a small amount of tape and taped my crumb cake piece to a piece of Stampin' Up Grid Paper.  This paper is perfect to use to line up items as the boxes are evenly spaced and can be marked to line items up.  

I stamped the first celebrate in Night of Navy, then moved down the card to Dapper Denim, Island Indigo, and finally Bermuda Bay.  Next, I used the Night of Navy corduroy ribbon to give some texture and finally Night of Navy cardstock to cut out the you die.  It's hard to see in the photo, but I layered Wink of Stella glitter pen over the you die to give it some shine!  The flower from the stamp set in stamped in Crumb Cake as well.

Global Stamping Friends - Love is in the air!

Happy Friday everyone!  It's the first Friday of the month and time again for the next Global Stampin' Friends Blog Hop!  I'm excited this month as I'm currently enjoying my birthday trip to Disneyland, but of course made time to share a great project with you! 
Love is in the air this month with Valentine's Day projects!  Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays.  I normally spend the day with my husband by either cooking a nice dinner at home or going out to eat and generally spending some great time with each other.  Valentine's Day this year will be a bit different as my husband is still deployed overseas for a few more months.  I mailed him a care package full of goodies and a birthday present for him as his birthday is the day after Valentine's Day.  My special Valentine's Day will come later this spring when he returns! 
Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set
For this month's project, I wanted to highlight the Heart Happiness stamp set and coordinating Lots to Love dies.  These two items coordinate perfectly with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This card is a perfect showcase of layers, texture, and a simple design that can be used for multiple occasions.  For the heart, I fussy cut the stamped Melon Mambo heart with my Paper Snips.

The colors in the Painted with Love paper include Calypso Coral which goes great with the Shimmery Ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!  Best part of this card is that if you add all the supplies up to create it, you can receive the Shimmery Ribbon package FREE, plus if you place an order of $50 through me using this month's Hostess Code, you can receive the Gold Glitter Flakes free too!  

Make sure to continue on to the next blog in our monthly hop by checking out Erica Jones blog for some more great love projects!
