June In Color Club

Hello everyone! Today I want to show you the cute cards that each of y In Color Club members received. Every month, I send them a kit with all the products in one of the In Colors as well as a handmade cards. This month, I used the Handwritten background stamp and the Stitched All Around stamp set to create these cards. 

I always find it so satisfying to make the same card in five different colors! They each have their own personality even though they are the exact same! 

Lovely Lipstick

Call Me Clover

Grapefruit Grove

Blueberry Bushel

Pineapple Punch

And here is what the whole kit looks like when they receive it. I always include an embellishment as an added thank you!

So which color is your favorite? Mine has to be Lovely Lipstick...Or maybe Pineapple Punch!

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop: New Colors!

Hello everyone and welcome to the June Sweet Stampede Blog Hop! This month, out them is "New Colors." We've got so many to choose from!

I pulled out the new Treehouse Adventures to create this project. It actually is the card I made for my Dad for Father's Day! Isn't is so sweet!? I just love this little set. The sentiment is from the Tropical Chic stamp set. 

I used several new colors for this card: Poppy Parade, Mando Melody and Call Me Clover. These are all bright, rich colors that make this images pop ff the card. I also used the Up and Away Framelits to cut out the leaves and pop them up. I embossed the card with the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder.  Last, I added a piece of Poppy Parade Mini Striped Ribbon to the bottom of the card. I actually cut the ribbon in half to make it more narrow. 

To see more beautiful new colors, make sure you hop along to the other ladies on my team. I am certain you will be inspired to use our beautiful new colors!

Facebook Friday: Healing Hugs

Hello everybody! It's time for another Facebook Friday! 
Today, I'll be showing you three ways to use the Healing Hugs stamp set. This set is very popular and I predict it being one of the best selling sets in the catalog! It's special kind of stamp called Distinktive that Stampin' Up has a patent pending on. It creates photo realistic images with out having to do two or three step stamping. You can see Stampin' Up's video on this stamp here. 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards. 

Edit to add recording: 

First up is a CASE straight from the catalog. The catalog is actually a great resource for your to get ideas on using your stamps. I am in love with this card and had to make it myself! Check out that faux stitching too! It's a Framelit! 

Next up is one of our new Gable Boxes. I'll show you how to change the color of your Gable Boxes and stamp the flower right on to your box. 

Last, I pair the stamps with some Gold Foil and our new Tufted Embossing Folder.r 

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project

Lilypad Lake

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a card I made last month for my team swap. Our theme was WATER! That could be interpreted in so many ways and it was so fun to see what everyone came up with. I chose to use the new Lilypad Lake Bundle for my card. 

For the water part, I used Balmy Blue and did a watercolor wash on Watercolor Paper. I sprinkled Kosher Salt on it before it dried. That creates those textured bubbles. Once it's dry, you just brush off all the salt. 

The flowers were colored with an Aqupainter. Everything else was cut out with the coordinating Lakeside framelits. 

Tomorrow's Facebook Friday will feature the Healing Hugs stamp set from the new catalog. Set a reminder and join me live at 2:00 CST on my Facebook Group Page. Everyone is welcome!
