Stampers By The Dozen - Celebrating Parents

Happy Saturday! It's time for another monthly edition of the Stampers By the Dozen Blog Hop!
While the world is feasting their eyes and celebrating the Royal Wedding, this month's theme is celebrating parents!  Last Sunday here in the United States was Mother's Day and coming up in June is Father's Day.  While my dad passed away in 2010, my Father in Law is alive and this card is a perfect one to send to him!

I wanted to highlight the retiring Truly Tailored bundle.  While the punch will be staying in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, this great and manly set is retiring at the end of this month.  I was so very sad to hear that it was because it is the perfect addition to any stampers catalog with many manly stamp options.


This card is perfect for any occasion from birthday to anniversary to letting anyone know to have a Dapper Day!  Unfortunately the coordinating True Gentleman Designer Series Paper has sold out, but this simple card can use any type of patterned paper in a variety of colors.  I used the Stitched Shape Dies and Night of Navy ink to tie in the card base and a Crumb Cake layer.  The Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon is the perfect accent of texture.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop - Masculine Madness!

We are halfway through the week and it's time for another monthly edition of the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! 
Image may contain: text
With Father's Day just around the corner, this month we are focusing our theme on Masculine cards.  Masculine cards seem to always be the toughest cards for me to make, not because I normally make cards with oodles of flowers and subtle colors, but because my cards tend to be more on the bright and bold side.  I knew right away I wanted to highlight and focus in on the retiring stamp set.  Unfortunately, the coordinating Designer Series Paper has already sold out but the stamp set and coordinating punch (available for 10% off in a bundle until May 31st) are still available to purchase.

I love the simplicity of this project and how it still can have some bold colors to it even though its a masculine card.  I saw this design online (using different patterned paper) and knew I wanted to recreate it with the bow tie and the dot paper.  The blue corduroy ribbon is the perfect divider and Stampin' Dimensional foam pop ups create layers and depth to the card.  
I wanted to use one of the sayings from the stamp set that can be used for multiple occasions, from birthdays to anniversary to a congratulations card.  This set is so versatile and a perfect addition to anyone's crafting stash.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop - You Are My Anchor

Happy Cinco de Mayo friends!  Today in Tucson will be filled with tacos, margaritas and of course, another round of the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop!
This round we are highlighting the April 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit called You Are My Anchor.  I love, love, LOVE this month's kit with its nautical theme and the simple and bold colors.

The last time we hopped, I had difficulty trying to design a project but this hop, it literally just popped up into my head.  This kit is perfectly timed with Father's Day coming soon, summer celebrations, and more.  The stamp set is so cute and I can't wait to use this in more of my projects.  I'm very happy I purchased two of these kits!

I love the simplicity of this project, but how I used many different pieces and the ahoy sentiment is perfect for any occasion.  I started with a piece of Island Indigo (R.I.P. one of my favorite Stampin' Up colors that is retiring at the end of this month) and stamped the tiny sailboat using Island Indigo ink.  The cards in the kit come in a 3 in x 3 in size and I unfolded one of those and used it as a layer on top of the Island Indigo and I also cut the gold starburst card in half as well.  The lighthouse was a punch out shape and I used the Glitter Enamel Dots to highlight the ahoy sentiment.

Global Stamping Friends - Design Challenge Time!

Happy Friday everyone! May the 'fourth' be with you to all my Star Wars friends!  It's the first Friday of the month and time for another round the Global Stamping Friends Hop!
This month we have a special theme, a design challenge! I love design challenges as they literally challenge me to think outside the box and use layouts I normally wouldn't use.  Our layout for this month's theme was created by Angelique Stempelkeuken, a Demonstrator from The Netherlands!
No automatic alt text available.
This layout is perfect and right away I knew I wanted to showcase the Share What You Love bundles that were released on May 1st!  These bundles are perfect for any skill level crafter as there is something for Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced skills!  As for the layout, I wanted to flip the script (literally!) and turn my card landscape style.
This whole project is chocked full of new and exciting supplies and another sneak peek of a returning In Color, Mint Macaron!  I loved this color when it was an In Color and I'm so very happy to see it return.  I used Rich Razzleberry cardstock as my base color layed with the Mint Macaron embossed with the new Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.  
The patterned paper is from the new Share What You Love 12x12 inch Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper is so beautiful and I love the subtle shimmer that some of the pages have.  Love the colored doily?  I used the new Pearlized Doilies that I flipped over and used the Whisper White side.  I sponged it using one of the new 2018-2020 In Colors: Grapefruit Grove!
As a final touch, I used one of the small labels from the Share What You Love embellishment kit and stamped my image from the Love What You Do photoplymer stamp set using Rich Razzleberry ink!  The Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon is a great way to tie everything together.
