This card was made for a Girl at work who graduated college in the Spring, and is now moving on to a job in her study. I don't get too often of a chance to send cards like this out(even though I still make them!) So it feels good knowing this is well deserved! :)

The card base is Island Indigo, that I stamped in the same ink the Gorgeous Grunge spotty image, and the ribbon at the top is the same color as well. The papers are from the Moonlight paper stack, and match the Island Indigo quite well! I like the look of the different sized banners.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set, and is inked with Blackberry Bliss. Thank you for visiting, until next time!!

Decorated Kraft Gift Box

Hello, and happy Friday! Today's project is a decorated kraft gift box. My upline Holly has sent me these blank boxes that Stampin' Up! sells, these blank heavy weight boxes come in a set of four, for only $2.95! What a deal that is! I decorated mine with the For the Birds stamp set and used the Blender Pens and inks to color it in. The papers are from the Moonlight paper stack, and the ribbon is the Hello Honey stitched ribbon.
I stamped this image onto watercolor paper, and colored it in, and it doesn't warp at all. It's die cut out with the Ovals Collection framelits.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!!

Adorable Gift Boxes

I have two little gift boxes to share today! I found them both on YouTube, from a fellow SU! demonstrator, and you can find her channel here.
This is the backside of the milk carton style box, which you can see that it uses the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. The Sale-a-Bration dsp is all one piece, and I love this little box! I am giving this one to a Girl at work for her Birthday today!
And the second box is a flip top opening style that is also very sweet! This dsp is from the All Abloom paper stack. Both boxes only take a few embellishments and stamping to finish them off. It's better, I think, to showcase the pretty papers!
Thanks so much for having a look today, and check out the link above for even more paper boxes!!

All Abloom

Today's card features the new designer series paper stack called All Abloom. I am loving all the pretty floral patterns! There are two of these paper stacks available in the new catalog, and each one measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". Perfect for cards and treat pouches. The card base is made from the Naturals Ivory  cardstock, which is a heavyweight paper. I stamped the base with a flower from the Petite Petals set in Pistachio Pudding. I cut random pieces of the dsp, and punched a few shapes out with my punches. The saying is from the Label Love stamp set, and I used it's coordinating Artisian Label punch. I added a few sequins and wrapped linen thread to finish it off.

I am starting up a monthly club soon!! More info on that in the next few days, so stay tuned! Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Punch Art Pooh Bear

I found this adorable Pooh Bear punch art on Pinterest, and just had to try making him! He uses only three Stampin Up punches, the Owl and Bird builder, and the Word Window. I added the flower in his hand from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack and the Large Oval punch for the stem. The sentiment is from the Label Love stamp set, and I stamped it twice and cut the words out by hand, as there isn't a punch to fit that oval shape. The grass was made with the fringe scissors to give Pooh something to stand on. I think he's really cute!! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

For a Friend

Hello! For today's card. I wanted to use the new Sequins on some flowers, and this is what I came up with. The sequins are all in the 2013-2015 In Colors, so my card uses all of them. The base is Baked Brown sugar, the hexagon embossing folder is done in Pistachio Pudding, and the flowers are Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Coastal Cabana. The Mono Liquid Glue works great holding the sequins to the cardstock. The sentiment label has another heart shaped sequin, and It is held on with a rolled glue dot to make it stand up a bit. The sentiment is from the brand new Peace, Love & Cupcakes stamp set, and I added some punched leaves from the Bird Builder punch. Just a fun happy card to send for any reason! Thanks so much for stopping in for a look!

One Stamp Set, One Paper Stack, Two Different Looks

Hello there! I wanted to make two cards with the same look, but totally different colors, and today's cards I have done just that! I have used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, and the new Moonlight Designer Series Stack papers. For the first card, I have have used Hello Honey, and Calypso Coral for the ink and cardstock. For the second card, I used the exact same dsp papers, but in the Basic Grey pattern, and paired it with Mossy Meadow and Smokey Slate ink for the stamping, and Mossy Meadow and Basic Grey cardstock.
On this one, I did add a mat to the main image, or it would have got lost in front of the dsp. I like it that way, and think maybe the first one needs a mat too! The sentiments both come from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. So that's my share today, one Girly, and one Manly!! Thanks for having a look, and have a great day!

Flowering Flourishes

I do love this stamp set! I've had my eye on it for awhile as I've said before, but this time I have colored the flowers with my Stampin Write markers after inking it with Wild Wasabi. I did a little double stamping with another smaller stamp in this set, to give a little bit of shadow. I've used Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry on the flowers, and the cardstock. The sentiment is from the Oh, Goodie stamp set that was in the Holiday catalog, but is on the carry over list, and is still available to purchase! The item numbers for this set are-Wood mount-131886 and Clear mount(rubber cling)-131889 I added a few rhinestones to the flower centers, and wrapped a bit of Pistachio Pudding Thick bakers twine to finish it off. Thank you as always for having a look!

In Circles

Today's card share is one I made with the Circle's Collection Framelit dies. I die cut a few nested rings with the new Lullaby Designer Series Papers. The small Hello Honey ring at the bottom I used my circle punches on. The card base is Baked Brown Sugar, and I decided to tie on the matching thick bakers twine to the large ring. The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana, and punched out with the Modern Label punch. I added a few Jewels Basic Pearls to the different rings to finish it off. Thank you for stopping by today!

Stampin' Up! New 2014-2015 Annual US Catalog Goes Live Today!

Yay!! Today is the day the catalog finally goes live!!! But, you will have to wait until after 12:00!! I have a few project to share to kick off the catalog, featuring the new In Colors.
The first is a cute treat package I made with the Tag Topper Punch. I took a strip of Hello Honey cardstock and punched both ends, then scored it to make a holder to house a little treat in the middle. I used Blackberry Bliss to stamp the Flowering Flourishes onto it, and also for the sentiment. And I tied the matching ribbon to the top to keep it closed.
The second is a card that I stamped all 5 In Colors with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set. The twine is new, and is Thick Baked Brown Sugar twine. I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink that Stampin Up is now carrying!!
And the last is a tag made with the Tag Topper Punch. It has a scalloped top and also a punched slot for ribbon, which I used Hello Honey. The background and sentiment is stamped with Lost Lagoon, and the stars are from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack that I punched with Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey.

Now that the sneak peeks are over, it's time to shop!! :) Lots more goodies that are on my list!! To check out the new catalog, click here. Thank you for having a look at my projects today, have a good one!!!
