Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop- Daffodil Daydream Bundle


Thank you for joining us today for the Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop.  This hop allows us to share any project we have created recently and doesn't have a set theme. We are Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world here to bring you inspiration and share our creativity with you. 

I chose to use the brand new Daffodil Daydream Bundle from the new mini catalog and paired it with the FREE Daffodil Afternoon DSP from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  My card base Flirty Flamingo, and then I have a piece of Basic Black and DSP as layers. I then cut out a die from the Scalloped Contour Dies for my daffodils and sentiment in Very Vanilla.  

I stamped my Daffodil image and butterfly with Memento Black ink and die cut them out using the coordinating dies. I then used my Stampin' Blends to color in my images.  I used light and dark Daffodil Delight and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo and Light Granny Apple Green.  

For my inside I added a layer of Very Vanilla and stamped my sentiment and image from the stamp set in Memento Black ink. 

Below you will find a complete list of participants taking part in this blog hop today. I hope you will join in and hop along and see all the wonderful projects being shared. Thanks for joining us today.

Stamping With Friends Blog Hop- Valentine's Day- Sweet Conversation Stamp Set


Thank you for joining all of us Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators for a blog hop today. This is the Stamping With Friends blog hop and we are showcasing Valentine's Day for this hop today.  I am choosing to use the Sweet Conversation Stamp Set which is part of the Sweet Talk Suite in the Mini catalog and can be found on pages 8-10.  It is such a cute suite of products. You may have arrived from Karen Egan's blog and she shared a fantastic project with us, great job Karen. 

I decided to keep my card simple, just stamps, ink, paper and some ribbon.  My card base is Thick Basic white cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".  My layer is a piece or basic white cut at 4" x 5 1/4".  I stamped my rainbow of hearts across the middle of the layer.  My ink colors are all from the brights collection and are Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape. My sentiment is stamped in Memento Black. I then spritzed with my Black Stampin' Write marker and my wink of Stella as well. To finish off the card, I used the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon which carried over from the holiday catalog. 

For the inside I simply stamped my sentiment in Memento Black.

Thank you for joining us today.  Below you will find the complete BLOG HOP list in case you started with me. We would love for you to hop along with us to gain inspiration and see all our projects.  You can click the next button to go to the next demonstrators blog.

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop January 2022- Birthday and SAB theme


Hello and thank you for joining us for our Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop! We are a group of international Stampin' Up! ® demonstrators from around the world that participate each month in a hop together.  We are from the USA, UK, Australia, and Canada and we have many collaborative projects we share each month including this hop.  If you want to learn more of what else we do together please send me an email to and I would love to get you in other groups of ours if you are a customer.  Our theme for this months hop is Sale-A-Bration(SAB) plus birthday.  You may have arrived from Terri's blog and she shared a wonderful project with us! We always love when you leave us comments on our blog but they are not necessary.

I have chosen to use two SAB items in my blog today and they are the Simply Marbleous 6x6 Designer Series paper and the Special Moments stamp set for my sentiments.  I am also using Eden's Garden stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  

I started by taking a piece of the 6x6 Simply Marbleous DSP in the Smokey Slate color and chose to use the side that looks more marbled, as the other side looks like water.  I then took my Eden's Garden Stamp set and created my own DSP by stamping the flower in Polished Pink, and then added two of the greenery pieces using Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce. This is what it looks like when done! I love it. 

My cardstock base is Smoky Slate and it measures 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My layer of Shaded Spruce measures 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and my patterned paper layer I cut to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  The leftover long piece I cut to 1" x 5 1/4" for the inside Basic White layer. 

To finish the front of the card I created a faux bow using the 3/8" Open Weave Polished Pink ribbon.  I cut a piece to wrap around my front layers, and then a piece to tie a bow and added it with a glue dot.  You don't use as much ribbon that way! Just a tip.  I then stamped by sentiment using that Special Moments stamp set on a 1/2" scrap of Basic White in Memento Black ink and used the Banners pick a punch to flag the end.  To finish I added some Classic Matte dots in black to make them pop. I alway use odd numbers and go for a triangle as it is attractive to the eye. 

For the inside I used a layer of Basic White that measures 4" x 5 1/4" and stamped my sentiment from the Special Moments SAB set and added my extra piece of homemade DSP. 

I hope you have enjoyed my card today that I shared with you featuring SAB items and a birthday theme. To continue on our hop, please just click the Next button below to be taken to Sandy's  blog where she is going to share a wonderful project with you.

Panhandle Pearls Team Shoebox Swap Part 2


These are the rest of the cards that I was able to create this past weekend at our quarterly team Shoebox swap. It was such a great afternoon of crafting with friends! I really enjoy our Shoebox swap and any type of swap really as it just gives me more samples and inspiration. All of these cards feature products from the new January-June 2022 Mini catalog from Stampin' Up! ®.  

Lynda made this adorable card using the Gumball Greetings bundle featured on page 11 in the catalog.The shaker domes and cute frosted bead assortment make the cutest gumballs ever. She had a lot of prep work to get this card ready for us.   

Brenda Lee made this adorable card using the Sweet Talk Suite found on pages 8-10 in the catalog.  I love the new gingham embossing folder that comes as part of this suite.  And those envelopes and little hearts are just adorable as well. 

Ingrid made this beautiful card featuring the Blessings of Home stamp set found on page 59 in the catalog. Her color choice of Misty Moonlight was wonderful.  The bottom layer is created with the stamp set, so we created our own DSP. Then a layer of DSP from this suite of products and then images stamped on Basic White die cut with the Scalloped Contours dies. Very elegant card. 

Laura created this card featuring products from the New Horizons suite found on pages 42-43. The DSP in this suite is stunning. She cut the DSP out with our circle dies and then we stamped images on it. I love the texture she added to the Basic White layers using the Tasteful Textiles EF from the annual catalog. We added the die cut grass and some Pebbles Enamel shapes to finish it off. Beautiful card. 

Lisa N. made this cute card featuring the Rainbow of Happiness bundle featured on page 18 in the catalog. The rainbow is created using the dies and several patterns of DSP.  The background DSP is the Sweet Talk DSP from the Sweet Talk suite. I love the added calendar to this as well.  Great gift idea! 

Erica made this cute little box that is part of the Sweet Talk suite on pages 8-10.  We decorated it up with DSP and ribbon and the bonus was she even had candy for us to put in it! That was sweet of her. I think I ate my candy while creating(OOPS).

This swap was so fun to take part in! The team members that attended are all so very talented! I know have 13 samples of new products to show.  The Sweet Talk suite was popular and used four times total, either as a whole suite or just the DSP!  It is an adorable suite and I have had fun playing with it.
