Sweet Sorbet and See Ya Later Fry Box

Good morning everyone!
Today, I am sharing another Leadership Display sample with you.
It was created using three fun Sale A Bration products.
One of the things you can choose for FREE when you purchase $50 of yummy Stampin' Up goodies during Sale A Bration, is this beautiful Sweet Sorbet paper. It's beautiful in real life and is a fantastic combo of SU colors. I chose to make a party favor using this paper. The basic fry box was purchased from a craft store. If I have to make a bunch of something, I'm going to try to keep it simple!

After layering a few diecut pieces of the paper, I stamped the birthday sentiment from another free Sale A Bration product, See Ya Later stamp set. I colored the stamp with Stampin' Write markers and then stamped it on Whisper White paper. I cut it out with an Apothecary Accent Framelit. I stamped it again and just cut out the word BIRTHDAY and snipped the ends. I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. Last, I added a Coastal Cabana Twine bow, yet another FREE item you can get during Sale A Bration!

To purchase Stampin' Up products, you can visit my store HERE. Remember, for every $50 you spend, you get a FREE choice from the Sale A Bration catalog. Plus, I will send you a FREE Sale A Bration project planner!!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- Pop Up Card


Hello and welcome to the last edition for the February Artisan Blog Hop. Next month we will move on to some much Springier things! ;-) 

 I once again am using the Kaleidoscope suite. I love this paper SO much! 

I've wanted to try and create a pop up card on my e-cutter for a while. I thought this was the perfect opportunity. So, I gave it a try. I'm not gonna lie y'all... it was tricky!

I used the Hooray from the Geometrical digital download to create the pop up part on my Cameo software.  It's not perfect (far from it!) and needs lots of tweaking, but it turned out cute none the less.

 The rest of the card is made from the Kaleidoscope paper and the Geometrical stamps.

 I added some dimension to the word as well.  A few popped up circle and heart punches, a stamped triangle, punched out with the triangle punch and a Summer Starfruit twine bow. The twine is part of a FREE embellishment pack during Sale A Bration!

 I was hoping to do a tutorial for this card, but honestly, my design needs work. So, stay tuned, hopefully I can figure out a better way to make the words pop out easier.



When it's folded up, this is what it looks like on the outside. Cute as a normal card too I would think!

Ok, your off to the next stop, my sweet friend Jane Lee. Make sure you let her know how awesome she is!!

Word Bubbles and Just Sayin' (HSS180)

Hello everybody! It's Tuesday and that means another Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge! I really enjoyed this sketch! I think you will too...


I've had this idea for a while, and the sketch provided the perfect opportunity to execute it. I used the Word Bubble Framelits and created a stencil using a Window Sheet. I then used Stamp Daubers and filled in each bubble. 
Now, my plan was to stamp the whoo hoo right on the speech bubble on the background paper. but, It was crooked!! uhg! So, I just stamped a new one and cut it out with the coordinating framelit and added it with Stampin' Dimensionals. Voila! Nobody can tell I had a major boo boo! 
Colors I used (the look strange in the photo for some reason) are Pool Party and Coastal Cabana as well as Basic Black and Whisper White. The arrow is Strawberry Slush. 

Ok, that's it for me this morning. make sure you hop over to HSS and see what the other designers came up with. I hope you are inspired by our sketch as well and will link your card up with us. you have TWO weeks!!

I'll be back this evening with this week's Artisan Blog Hop! See you then! 

PS- Make sure you have Liked my page on Facebook! I am getting ready to do a bunch of giveaways!!!

Banner Blast

Hello and happy Friday! I hope your weekend gets of to a fabulous start! 
I'm kicking it off with a fun and festive card I made for the Leadership Display Boards. 

This card is so fun AND so easy! I stamped three little banners (Melon mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodile Delight) and punched them out with the coordinating punch. I sewed over them several times. 

The circles were created with a sponge dauber. Same colors as before, I used BOTH ends of the dauber. I added some splatter with Gorgeous Grunge.  Last, I added the sentiment from Four You in Staz On Black.
