Stampers By the Dozen February 2019 - CASEing the Catalog!

Happy Saturday everyone!  The weekend is here and it's time for another month with the Stampers by the Dozen hop!

This month is all about CASEing the catalog.  CASE stands for Create and Share Everything.  CASEing is great for new beginner stampers looking for their next creation but also for avid crafters who might just need an extra inspiration idea.  For my project, I wanted to CASE a project from the Occasions catalog using the Flowering Desert stamp set but also create a project that coordinates but that is also my own.



For my first project, I started with Mint Macaron cardstock and layered with Very Vanilla cardstock.  This project is great as it highlights our paper, inks, and stamps with no additional tools needed.  For my inks on this card, I used Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Shaded Spruce.

My second card I used Highland Heather cardstock again layered with Very Vanilla cardstock.  For the inks on this project I used Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss, Gorgeous Grape and Rich Razzleberry.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop February 2019 - Birthdays!

Happy Valentines Day everyone!  I hope your day is filled with love and happiness everywhere and now it's time for another round of the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop!
This month's theme is birthday and it is perfect timing as my husband's birthday is tomorrow!  I knew I wanted to use the Geared Up Garage bundle for his card.  While he isn't too much into cars, he is an Aircraft Maintenance Officer in the military so the gears are right up his alley.


I started my project with a Basic Black cardstock base and layered using Real Red and Crushed Curry cardstock.  I used the shape from the Thinlits dies that looks like a word bubble and cut out the pieces in Crushed Curry cardstock for that tone on tone background look.  


The car was stamped on Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and I colored it in with the Light Real Red Stampin' Blend Marker.  The sentiment was stamped in Real Red Ink and I stamped the gears along side it with Smoky Slate ink.  Isn't that little wrench so cute?!  Those are from the Classic Garage Metal Elements!

Colour Combo Blog Hop - February 2019

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The weekend is halfway over and it's time for another round of the Colour Combo Monthly Blog Hop!

This month's colors seem to shift more towards the holiday colors of Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade and Soft Sea Foam.  While I initially had a very hard time trying to come up with a design for these that wasn't holiday themed, while browsing my stamps I came across one of my favorites Dandelion Wishes which I knew exactly what to do with!

I started with Poppy Parade cardstock base and layered using the Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out and using the Grateful Glass Designer Vellum Sheets and my Stampin' Blends, I colored the back side of the vellum paper and adhered using my Tombow glue sponged on with a Stampin' Sponge.
I stamped the dandelions onto Watercolor Paper using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and using my Aqua Painter and Soft Sea Foam ink, I lightly colored in the middle sections of the flowers.  I stamped my sentiment in Poppy Parade ink and using the Clear Faceted Dots, I used my Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blend to color the dots a nice dark green color.
