SU Your Perfect Day

Happy Monday, kids! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had a chance to play along with the sketch at Pals Paper Arts 236 this weekend although I missed the Paper Players color challenge I intended to use…lol. But I still loved the colors together- Sahara Sand, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Lost Lagoon.  I just love this sketch, don’t you?

SU Balloon Bash

January 17, 2015

I am finally getting to play along with the ColourMe Challenge # 54.

CM54

I love their blog and Design Team samples each week but have been missing the challenge for a while now. The striking colors of Pacific Point and Real Red are fun and festive so I went for a birthday card. Who doesn’t need these all the time?

SU Balloon Bash Inside REd Frame

 The stamp in SU Balloon Bash is a big one so I just stamped it and did a little mask at the top to have the balloons peeking out the top of the big image like it was floating. I popped up the CELEBRATE after stamping it in Pacific Point and fussy cutting it out.

Layering up this card added a little extra something since the card is very CAS. A little balloon on the inside finished it off.

Look how cute this photopolymer (see through) stamp set is- I love those candles!

SU Indescribable Gift

January 16, 2015

Happy Friday, friends!

You can tell by Sara’s Friday Mashup 193 that spring is on her mind

during this cold winter season!

But then, we who live in the north are ready for spring once Christmas is over!

193f

This week’s Mashup Challenge is:

Create a project with the “Triple Layer Technique” Tutorial HERE.

Create a project that’s “Floral.” 

or Mash it Up! and create a “Floral Triple Layer Project.”

I was playing around with some new stamps from the Occasions catalog and decided a card I made for my Stampin’ Brunch fit in with the FLORAL theme.

I stamped the Indescribable Gift floral image and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice inspired by a card I saw by Sharon Burkett who used a sentiment from the Butterfly Basics on a white card base background. I liked how the pink card base coordinated with the flowers. I love how the Iridescent Ice takes a CAS card a step up. I actually think I could have flipped the image so the branch was coming down from the top left corner like it is on the stamp case. But, I guess I will next time:)

Annual Stampin’ Brunch 2015

January 13, 2015

I wanted to share some snapshots of my Stampin’ Brunch last weekend…

clb17

I had the blessed opportunity to gather my 40 of my wonderful friends together to kick off the NEW Occasions catalog and the SALE-A-BRATION brochure.

We had a ball playing with the new SAB Lotus Blossom and Big Day Stamp sets and the Occasions newbies Butterfly Basics and Crazy About You. Each goodie bag had the sweet Love is Kindness stamp set and some SAB Best Year Ever DSP samples in them- how fun to see the girls’ faces light up when they saw the stamp!

Hugs to all my gals who came out in the freezing temperatures and made the brunch warm and happy with laughter and smiles. I still pinch myself when I think how you all are such a big part of my life!  A special shout out to Stacey Ailes, Stephanie Berneburg, Stephanie McCaskey, and Jodi McKinney for their help when I needed it most:)
