Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop - Coffee Cafe!

Happy Wednesday readers!  Today I am joining a new blog hop together with other Stampin' Up Demonstrators!  
Image may contain: text
I'm excited to be apart of this group and to bring you a project this month highlighting the Coffee Cafe bundle.  This is my favorite stamp set and coordinating dies from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I love the colors in the coordinating Coffee Break Designer Series Paper and this set is perfect for any occasion as everyone loves a hot drink!  As an added bonus, you can purchase the stamp set and dies together as a bundle until May 31st at 10% off together!



Texture, layers, and color is the key to my card this month!  I used the regular Embossing Paste which I dyed using my Garden Green ink refill and used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks to create the brick background and used it on Crumb Cake cardstock mounted on Early Espresso cardstock.  I wanted to portray the look of a Starbucks store with their signature greens and browns.  

I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the coffee cup and the Designer Series Paper in the background for a simple look.  This card can be used for multiple occasions from sympathy to a get well soon card.

Global Stamping Friends - That Little Bit Extra!

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm writing to you today from fabulous LAS VEGAS!  I am here for Stampin' Up On Stage and I'm so very excited as tomorrow I will be able to see the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and all its new goodies!  But before then, it's the first Friday of the month and time again for the next Global Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! 
This month our theme is showcasing those little bit of extras that make our projects so amazing.  Everything from ribbon, pearls, rhinestones, and more are what we are highlighting.  For my project this month, I wanted to showcase the Silver Metallic Ribbon and Clear Faceted Gems paired together with the Stampin' Blends and the Magical Day stamp and die bundle.

I LOVE how this turned out!  I used the Layering Circle framelits to create the scalloped circle and used my Stampin' Blends to color directly onto the Silver Edged Metallic Ribbon.  Next, I stamped and cut the dragon out and colored him in with the blends markers as well.  At the bottom, I used the Clear Faceted Gems that, you guessed it, I colored with the blends as well.  The gems are very easy to color to make them any color you want!

ICS Blog Hop - It's A Girl Thing!

Happy April readers!  April is an extra special month for me as its the month my husband is scheduled to come home (sometime) during this month!  It's been a long six months and I'm so very ready for him to be home but before he can come back, it's time for another round of our Inspire, Create & Share Blog Hop!  
For this month's theme, we are focusing on those extra special girls in our lives and creating projects that scream girly!  This month, I wanted to highlight the Oh So Eclectic stamp set.  I love the range and possibilities with this set and coordinating dies and how it can be used for multiple occasions. 
 

I knew when I saw the theme for this month I wanted to incorporate the retiring 2016-2018 In Colors of Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum.  I used the geometric die to cut a panel out on the Whisper White cardstock and used a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock to make it peek through the back.  I stamped the flowers and used White Embossing Powder to heat set the image and picked up color with my Aqua Painter from Flirty Flamingo ink and Sweet Sugarplum to color in the flowers.  

For the ribbon, I used my Light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Pen and colored directly onto the Silver Metallic Edged ribbon (my new favorite technique!).  I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set for the sentiment and inked it using the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad and brought a little sparkle in with the Clear Faceted Gems.  This card is great for any occasion and would be a lovely birthday card!
