Ombre Thank You - Color Me Happy

Good morning, friends, and happy Saturday!  I hope you have a wonderful (and warm!) February weekend planned!  It's a long weekend here in Calgary, Alberta, so I've got a few days of family fun on deck!  

Today's card is an easy one - so easy that you can crank out a few before breakfast this morning!  


With a short and sweet list of supplies - DSP, ribbon, one stamp, and a bit of cardstock - you've got this gorgeous thank you card ready to pop in the mail!

The secret to the "wow" factor?  Stampin' Blends!  These fantastic alcohol markers help you layer and blend colour to create this gorgeous ombre effect - isn't it fun?  I did that with two colours - how awesome is that?!

If you haven't got your hands on Stampin' Blends yet, why not?!  They're a breeze to use and really up the impact of your handmade cards!  

What else is going on over here?  Available now, you'll find this month's  CrushOnColour Project Pack, featuring the Fortunate To Know You stamp set - and it's a cutie!  Check it out...

Cherry Cola Birthday Brew - Bubble Over

Hello friends! 

Inspiration is all around us, isn't it?  Sometime's it's in advertising, a colour scheme in a great piece of clothing, or a kid's toy, and sometimes it's provided by other crafters.  Today's post was inspired by another talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator named Jo Hooper - she created this beautiful frosted blue glass pop bottle that reminded me of a vintage Cherry Coke, and I just HAD to make my own version!


Have I mentioned before how much I love Cherry Coke?  We don't get Cherry Coke in Canada - a trade off I'll happily take to live in this amazing country, but don't think I don't fill my trunk with cases of it whenever we drive to the states!  A cheery Cherry Coke card was right up my alley, so once I finished that one, I just had to make another... 


A couple of small changes - this one is simplified a little bit by using cardstock to cut the bottles - and I've got a second card for another Coke (a-Cola!) addict in my life... like my bestie or my husband!

These adorable cards were yet another creation made with Bubble Over, one of the fabulous stamp sets in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.  This set is easily my favourite, and it's so versatile - this one stamp set has seen more use than all of the others combined, I think!

Speaking of adorable cards, did you see the newest  CrushOnColour Project Pack, featuring the Fortunate To Know You stamp set?  It's a cutie!  Check it out...

Simply Lovely - Amazing You

Good morning, lovelies!  

It is February 13th, which means two things:
  1. We are HALFWAY through the Sale-A-Bration period - how did THAT happen so fast?! 
  2. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!  
Eek, right?!  On both counts!  January was a total drag-on month, but February is whipping by in an absolutely flash.  

Today's card is a little featurette of a Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Amazing You.  And it's going to help with both of those things, because not only does it feature a FREE stamp set from Sale-A-Bration, but it's a perfect card to give to a loved one. 


Wait, do I need to back it up?

What IS Sale-A-Bration?  It's the best time of year in the Stampin' Up! Calendar!  Sale-A-Bration is where Stampin' Up! celebrates customers, hosts, and demonstrators alike by handing out free goodies!


For customers, it means free stamp sets, free ribbon, free notecard packs, free DSP, and even free DIES for your Big Shot with your Stampin' Up! order!  For every $60 spent, you can choose a free exclusive item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, and when you spend $120, you can choose a bigger and better item - how cool is that?!

This stamp set - Amazing You - is one of the freebies you have to choose from.  And that's the only way you can get it - FREE with your purchase!  It's priceless, friends!


The images in this stamp set are so beautiful that I wanted to really let them shine - a simple pallet of Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and Pool Party lets the flowers and sentiment draw your focus without my typical "more-is-more" smattering of ink, banners, twine, and embellishments.  Sometimes you need a simple card, and this one fits the bill in spades.  That stamp set is downright dreamy, isn't it?

Sale-A-Bration has extra perks for hosts and demonstrators, too, whether you're brand new or are a seasoned demo - click here to read all about it!

What else is going on this month?  Available now, you'll find this February's  CrushOnColour Project Pack, featuring the Fortunate To Know You stamp set - and it's a cutie!  Check it out...

Just Wanted To Say... - Quirky Critters

Hello friends, and good morning!  I hope your weekend has been fabulous and your Sunday is even better.

Today's blog post is bringing back a favourite from the annual Stampin' Up! catalogue - it's easy to forget about the ongoing staple supplies when Occasions 2018 and Sale-A-Bration are both in full swing!  


Quirky Critters is a set I've featured a few times before - it took me a long time to break the seal on it, but once I did, I couldn't stop!  I just love those adorable animals, the whimsical font, and the sweet sentiments.  They're also GREAT fun to colour with the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, which were just released in January!

I've paired it here with some 3x4" cards from the Memories & More Card Pack called "Perfect Days."  There are a lot of great black and white prints in here that go with nearly everything - like this fun colour combination of Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party! And with pre-cut pieces, it couldn't be easier to put cards together.

In other news, available now, you'll find this month's  CrushOnColour Project Pack, featuring the Fortunate To Know You stamp set - and it's a cutie!  Check it out...
