Fab Friday 126

Hi stampers!  Happy Black Friday :-)  Quick post today after all the Thanksgiving festivities and in between display stamper blog hops (if you've missed them this week, make sure to check the rest of the blog for those)!

We have a festive color challenge this week at Fab Friday!

And I did a super clean and simple card with it but I kind of love it!  Sorry for the poor photo.  I had forgotten to take a picture of it before our holiday travel so I did a quick kitchen pic before we left!

I don't usually get a lot of hostess stamps anymore but I LOVED Seasons Of Whimsy!  It's so cute!

Make sure to check out the rest of the teams creations and play along with us!

Stampin Up 2018 Occasions & SAB Display Stamper Blog Hop - Day 4

Happy Thanksgiving!  Even though it's a holiday and you've eaten too much turkey, I hope you'll still have time to hop with us and see some more of the amazing samples from OnStage!

The Sweet Little Something Stamp Set is just like Baby Bear, it's a photorealistic stamp set and it's pretty cute!  I immediately knew I'd use it for a scrap book page of my sweet little someone.  I added some of the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape and embossed my sentiment in white.  It makes for a cute and simple scrapbook page!

 I'm trying to remember my color combos for my samples and I should have written them down.  I think this one is soft sky, pool party, and Bermuda bay.

This set is perfect for baby shower gifts and cards, too!  I wanted to do a girl project and a boy project.  The card was SUPER simple.  Just some stamping, a linen bow and done!  I think it is soft sky, pool party, and dapper denim.  My little girl is powder pink, blushing bride, and sweet sugarplum.  Our In Color Bitty Bows look SO cute on these bunnies!

And with our new paper ribbon, I HAD to make an Easter card since it looks just like grass!  I dyed some of our embossing paste with pool party ink and used it to stencil in my clouds.  This little bunny is smokey slate, basic gray stamped off once, and then full strength.  This is another one of my favorite display projects!  And I really love that this stamp set can work and has sentiments for so many holidays and occasions!  It's very versatile and I'm sure there are a lot more ways you could use it!

I hope you enjoyed today's projects and really do hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  I think I'm still in a food coma as I write this up!  And I'm thankful for so many things and that definitely includes Stampin' Up and all of my wonderful friends, readers, and customers that I've met because of SU!

Now it's time to go visit Charlet and see all the pretty things she has for you today!

Stampin Up 2018 Occasions and SAB Display Stamper Blog Hop - Day 3

Hi stampers!  We're on day three of our display stamper blog hop and I hope you're loving the sneak peeks so far!  If you're new, make sure to go back and check out days one and two and then come back for the rest of the week!

I hope you're not getting sick of the Myths & Magic suite yet because I've got more coming up.  I promise you'll get a break from it soon though :-)

This suite really is SO cute and I guess I went a little heavy on the samples but can you blame me?  You don't even have to use the stamp set much!  The DSP is great for your main image which is what my two samples today feature.  I cut this little mermaid out and used her to make a shaker card!

This project is a little different but it's super cute!  I just took one of our clear boxes and made a little wizard diorama.  I fussy cut my wizards and the castle from the DSP and used the Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon for grass.   Isn't it cute?  You could do the same with the smaller unicorns too, I think!  I have to say, my hubby gave me the idea for this one when he walked into my office and saw ALL this stuff ALL OVER the floor LOL!

That's it for me today and I promise a new stamp set up tomorrow :-)  Hop on over to see what Charlet has for you today, you'll love it!

Stampin Up 2018 Occasions & SAB Display Stamper Hop - Day 2

Hi stampers!  Welcome to the second day of our display sample hop!  If you didn't check it out yesterday, you NEED to go back!  So much cute stuff!

I kind of shared a lot of projects yesterday, I forgot we have a full week to share lol!  So, I better cut back a little so I don't run out of stuff to show you ;-)  Today I'm continuing with the Magical Day set and the Myths and Magic Suite because it's so dang cute!  

Unicorns are so popular right now so I'll share a couple of cards with them!  This DSP was a bit overwhelming for me but I think as a background, it works really well!  The unicorns are really sparkly in real life in this specialty DSP.   I stamped my sentiment twice and hand cut the banner out and popped it up on dimensionals.

I colored this one with my blends.  I added a little Wink of Stella round her spots but my thread is covering it.  It also got a little frayed on the trip to SLC and back, whoops.  Do you notice that pretty washi tape???  It's pretty fabulous!  My sentiment is from a totally different set but it works perfect!

Now you're ready to hop on over to Charlet, she's going to blow you away!  And make sure to come back all week to see what we have for you!

Happy stamping!

Stampin Up 2018 Occasions & SAB Display Stamper Hop - Day 1

Hi stampers!  I'm so excited to share with you today and to hop with some of my fellow display stampers from the recent OnStage events!

I'm always so honored when I get to be a display stamper not only because I get to inspire you with brand new things, but because it's always so great to see what other super talented people do...and to get to meet them at the event!  So, sit back and hop all around the world with us and see some new things from the upcoming Occasions and Sale A Bration catalogs!  We'll be hopping all week!

And yes, it's pains me to not be sharing Christmas right now (ha) but I wanted to get my display samples shared!

I'm starting with the Magical Day stamp set.  If I'm being honest, I haven't always been the biggest fan of the sets for displays (although they tend to grow on me when I use them) but this one is perfect for me because it has a dragon and Ian LOVES dragons!  The Myths & Magic Suite is pretty cute!  Here's a few of my samples!

This is one of my favorites.  I colored this little knight with my Blends and I thought the little enamel heart was the perfect touch!  I also love this pattern of DSP, very manly!

I colored this mermaid straight away when I got the set which was like a day or two before I knew the Blends were coming so she's just regular watercolored. I did add some Wink of Stella to her scales which is really pretty in real life.  I wish that stuff would show up on camera better!   The DSP is pretty will some sparkle, too!

This wizard is also colored with my blends and I just love Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon.  It's part of another suite but it sure pairs perfectly with this one!  This is also another pattern in the Myths & Magic Designer Series Paper.

This one is probably tied for my favorite card.  I love this dragon since Ian loves them!  It's one of the first things I colored when I got my Blends markers as well.  I knew immediately I wanted to add some Embossing Paste bricks and combine it with the Myths & Magic 6 x 6  Glimmer Paper.  It's so pretty!  It does shed a lot though, my whole office is covered lol!  I may have set it aside and only pulled it out a few days before OnStage ;-)  But it's worth the shedding, it's gorgeous!

My last project today is this little treat bags.  You'll notice more glimmer paper and some cute little binder clips.  Those are also not from the M&M suite but again, they pair nicely.

I hope you enjoyed my projects, I have many, many more to share so make sure to come back!  And make sure to hop on over to see what Charlet has for you, it's going to be spectacular!

Quilted Christmas

Hi stampers!  Happy Friday!  As soon as I saw this set I knew I needed it!  Now, how long did it take for me to put it to good use?  Don't ask, lol!

But, I whipped up this pretty card a few weeks ago and I kind of LOVE it!  The color combo is to die for, I think!  Real read, old olive, bermuda bay, pool party, and emerald envy work perfectly together!  The stamp is super easy to stamp since it's photopolymer!

I love the bright colors against the white!  And I turned my embossed panel over.  I didn't like the way it looked right side up ;-)

(I'm falling asleep on the couch as I write this so I'll do the supply list later lol!)

Happy stamping!

Add basic black to the list, I forgot ;-)

Merry Little Labels Tags - Stampin' Up Global Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hi stampers!  It's time for another awesome Artisan blog hop!  I cannot believe our year is almost up and they have announced the 2018 team (big congrats to all of you by the way, SO happy to see all your names at OnStage and I can't wait to see what you create) already!  WHERE did this year go?  I still can't believe I'm here and it's been such an honor to be a part of this amazing group.  It was also great to meet some of them (or see them again) last week in SLC.  How did we not get a group photo???

Anyway, onto the project at hand and enough of my emotional blathering :-)  We focused on the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set this time around.  It's such a cute little set!  My favorite stamp is the top right, I just think it's so cute!

I am forever scrambling to make some tags while I'm scrambling at the last minute to wrap gifts...are we seeing a pattern here? :-)  So, I thought for this hop, I'd get a head start and make some cute tags!

We have so many things to use on tags and I wanted to show you the variety you could get with both the coordinating Everyday Label Punch as well as other non-holiday items!

My no peeking tag uses the Celebration Thinlits, you know, the ones with the cute cake?  The Tag and tag overlay in that set of dies is perfect for any occasion!  And as a bonus, the punched shape fits perfectly on it!  I kept this one super simple with just a few Enamel Shapes so you can quickly make this tag if you're always in a hurry like me!

The special delivery tag uses the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Do you have that punch?  I forget about it sometimes but it's so great.  You just cut your paper to 2 inches wide and can make a tag of any length!  I switched out the label punch for oval framelits here and added a doily and some burlap for my finishing touches.  Again, a super simple but super cute tag!

For my final tag, I combined some shapes, including the punch.  I think it adds a lot of visual interest to have three shapes and then the Boxwood Embellishment is perfect here!  I added some Clear Faceted Gems to tie in the "sparkles" from the DSP on my background and then a little 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon for some more shine!  My sentiment is heat embossed with white powder.

These tags came together super fast and are going to look great on my gifts this year!  I encourage you to make some of your own with this set!  It was so fun!  And maybe you won't be scrambling like I usually am ;-)

Now, head on over the the Netherlands and see what Miriam has in store for you, you're going to LOVE it!
