First Full Day of Summer!!

Friday, June 22, 2018
This is a perfect card to commemorate the first full day of Summer (Which was yesterday), and dipping my feet in Lake Michigan sounds pretty good right now.
The beaches in Greece are totally different. Check out all the stones - and this was one of the best beaches!!
I chose to put an overlay of vellum on the front so that I could add the words "just breathe" from the COLORFUL SEASONS Stamp Set. The gals who come to stamp may chose to add it or leave it off, depending on how they like it or what they need. The Adirondack Chairs are cut using the SEASONAL LAYERS THINLITS
This card was inspired by Linda Tolson Yarbrough from the Demonstrator Planning Place on Facebook.
Stamps: May 2108 Paper Pumpkin (sun rays), High Tide, Beautiful You.
Colors: Sahara Sand, Dapper Denim, Crushed Curry, Soft Sky, Memento Basic Black.  Markers: Lovely Lipstick and Blushing Bride (retired)
The sun was punched from Daffodil Delight using the 1 1/8" Scallop Punch, Chairs from Seasonal Layers

Sitting Pretty Again

Thursday, June 21, 2018
On yesterday's blog post I told you to stay tuned to see what I did for my Down line team at our monthly meeting...
Are you curious?
We featured the SITTING PRETTY Stamp Set and Dies like I mentioned yesterday.
I like to make a board up of all the pieces and options
The fancy bench (top left) needs to be stamped, then cut and if you cut off the back it makes a great table. The traditional bench (top right) is strictly a die. But look - it can also be a fence or shortened to make a chair.
Two puppies?? But there is only one puppy stamp in the set.  Well I followed the you tube video by Designer Chick who showed how to make a mirror image and get 2 puppies! 
The cobblestone is for embossing only, but can also be cut out like you see above. You will want to purchase the EMBOSSING MATS for the best images using not only the emboss only dies, but you will be able to emboss using your cutting dies as well!! YES!! these are a MUST-HAVE!!
Another great perk for the PRETTY PARK DIES is that the dies come with 3 identical heart dies, making it so much easier if you need to cut out multiples.
The brick stamp is easy to line up because the stamp set is photopolymer and totally see through. Stamp it once, flip your stamp over and line up, and so on and so forth.
This is the card that they made for their Make & Take that night. Also inspired by Designer Chick
This time the cobblestone was embossed right onto the card front, and then using a sponge dauber we colored over the embossed image.
And look... Here is a video put out by Stampin' Up! for you to watch featuring the SITTING PRETTY Stamp Set and Dies

Anywhere With You...

Wednesday, June 20, 2018
I absolutely LOVE the SITTING PRETTY BUNDLE!!
I featured it for my team meeting and this cute card (inspired by Robin Daus) was featured in my June Stamp a Stack Classes
Don't you just love that cute little squirrel and birdie!!
I should have given this card to my hubby for our anniversary because the sentiment is so perfect for us.
Colors: Mint Macron, Tranquil Tide, Very Vanilla, Smoky Slate
Ink: Basic Gray, Mint Macron, Tranquil Tide, Soft Suede. Lighter versions of the inks were just stamped off.
The darling bench was stamped with Versa Mark onto Very Vanilla and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.
Stay tuned for tomorrows post and I will show you what I did for my down line gals featuring the SITTING PRETTY BUNDLE

Abstract Impressions with Springtime Impressions

Tuesday, June 19, 2018
I LOVE THIS BUNDLE!!
We made this card at CARD CLUB last night and it not only features the ABSTRACT IMPRESSIONS and SPRINGTIME IMPRESSIONS THINLITS DIES, but we also used the STAMPARATUS!!  So super excited that this fabulous tool is now available for all of you to purchase. You are going to LOVE IT!!
Can you see the little marks that Stampin' Up! added to the window sheet that the Photopolymer stamps come on? I added a dash of Sharpie Marker in that area on the stamp itself so it would help me to line things up when stamping.
Although the stamp set gives you the ability to make a 3 step flower, on this card I chose to only use 2 steps. They are not numbered on the window sheet, I will call them stamp 1 and stamp 3. These are the two I used. (photo above)
This first card was inspired by Melissa Davies
It also includes the label from the STITCHED LABELS FRAMELITS DIES, Shimmery PEAR PIZZAZZ RIBBON, and Whisper White BAKERS TWINE
Do you love the color scheme? Inks used: Grapefruit Grove, and Old Olive
Card #2
The beautiful butterfly and 1" banner is from the new, fresh PINEAPPLE PUNCH Card Stock, all teamed up with some COPPER TRIM and Rhinestones
This second card was inspired by Mary Brown.  What I changed up: I chose to make the card base cut from the SOFT SEA FOAM Card Stock. This is such a soft gorgeous green color. I cut a 4-1/4 x 
5-1/2" piece of THICK WHISPER WHITE Card Stock and added MULTIPURPOSE ADHESIVE SHEETS to the back and then cut out the corner die from that.  This made it easy to adhere the entire front to my base.  HOWEVER, I would have loved to pop this up on Dimensionals, but I think it looks really pretty just as it is. I also added a smaller sentiment and this one is perfect for a variety of occasions. Right off the top of my head I'm thinking engagement, but it could be for so much more!!
Don't you just love the new butterfly die? Why did Stampin' Up! retire our old butterfly die and then bring in a new one?? Well, I LOVE the change! It's no different than buying a new dress that might be similar to an older one you always loved. Sometimes you just need a fresh new look!
If you like what you see, I would love to have you shop with me.

Daisy Delight

Monday, June 18, 2018
Delightful Daisy Stamp Set is carried over into the new Annual Catalog, but, sadly the coordinating Designer Paper did not carry over. Oh, we know this happens all the time. It's actually good to help us stretch our imagination and creativity. BUT...since I have some left over, I am using it for a Tuesday Class.
I used a round plate to create my pattern for the curve.
This lovely card was inspired by Linda Callahan
I used the retired ink Wisteria Wonder for the daisy, Tranquil Tide for the stem and sentiment with a Daffodil Delight center.
The sentiment comes from the stamp set BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET. This stamp set is just so perfect for so many occasions.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day!!
I just couldn't be more grateful that my daddy is still with us at nearly 92 years old.
If you have ever spent any time with him you would not believe that he is that old.
He is doing such a great job taking care of Mom.
Here is a family photo taken in March when we were all together
I am in the back row second from left!
And this is the card that I made for him for Father's Day!
Card inspired by Ann Schach
Since my dad served in the Navy during WWll, and still has a love for lighthouses, I thought this would be the perfect card for him.
Thanks for stopping by!

Rooted In Nature

Friday, June 15, 2018
I love making the ombre look using Stampin' Up!'s fabulous colors.
Seen here is Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Blackberry Bliss.
This card (inspired by Dawn O) features a brand new stamp set called ROOTED IN NATURE, and it will pair perfectly with LOVELY AS A TREE or it works very well on it's own as seen here.
You even have the option of all these Framelits! You can purchase the stamp set and Framelits as a bundle and save 10%.
