Warm Welcome "Side-Step" card

Warm Welcome Side Step Card




Did you get a chance to see the super cute fun fold card from my 
Facebook Live video?

I made this very cute (easy side-step) card using the Welcome Window stamp bundle in the new Mini Catty and it is (CAT-ty), too! 

The card was inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest (sorry, I can’t remember the name).  I have made this design previously (the easy side step card), but I loved the little cat in the doorway, so this is my version.




There are so many cute features in this bundle, in addition to the 
door and lively sentiments as well!

I hope you enjoy this cute card and the adorable Warm Welcome 
Stamping Bundle (160704) by Stampin' Up!

Ideas Blog Hop Feb 2023 "That's So Suite of You"


Want to earn a free tutorial?  With over 80 pages of instruction?  Keep reading!


Welcome back for another IDEAS (International Demos Exciting Artistic Stampin') blog hop - where a group of creative demonstrators from around the world collaborate on a huge tutorial each month, chock full of creativity!


Our February, blog hop theme is based on Suites from the catalogs, therefore, this hop is entitled “That’s so Suite of You.” Cute, huh?  I love the product coordination at Stampin' Up.   It's one of my favorite things about Stampin' Up.  The paper, stamps, color coordination in each suite takes the guess work out choosing what goes together.  And often times there are other products that will coordinate as well.  It's just amazing! *heart*

My February contribution features the Regency Park Suite from the new current January - April mini catalog.  I can NOT get enough of the Designer Series Paper and the flower punch. Somehow that Mango Melody just really pops.  Especially with the Night of Navy!  I am a bold colors kinda girl so this one grabbed me from the beginning.  This suite has two different bundles - Sentimental Park and Petal Park.  I chose the Petal Park, which is an image stamp set and challenged myself to create projects that feature images on the front of the projects only.  The Sentimental Park is the other stamp bundle in the suite that contains words.


Here's our collage, which is a sneak peak from each designer in this edition of the tutorial bundle.  See it here:



Here's a peek at one of my projects from this month:





Each tutorial features at least one card or sometimes a 3D project, some include multiples. It is full of inspiring creations from different designers!

Beautifully Happy Stamp Set and Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper

 

I have found myself playing quite a bit with the Beautifully Happy stamp set and the lovely Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper from the Saleabration brochure.  I have coupled these lovely products together with some fun fold cards, and the results are stunning. I love them.



I love the color combination in this design. Blue and teal together - fantastic!  Coastal Cabana and Balmy Blue are bae! Throw in Fresh Freesia for icing on the cake!




The book binding fold is one of my go to’s. It is simple enough to do it and the result is stately. The Calypso Coral with the Mango Melody as a nice combination. Once again, add Fresh Freesia  to the mix to complete the look. 

And did you notice that flower from the Beautifully Happy stamped image above?

The solid flowers come in three pieces so that the single image can have multiple colors. Phenomenal, right?




The last Fun Fold here is super soft and spring-like.


Once again, the easel Fun fold  is easy to do but impressive.


Here’s another look at my favorite of the bunch.

If you would like to take a look at more Salebration products, you can see them here: 


*************************

Did you know that this month if you use the January Host  Code, you will get a full package of the Adhesive Backed Milky Dots for free? If you place an order of $50 or above, I will send you a pack of these gems for free. I have been using them quite a bit this month. They add pizzazz to your projects.

Tone on Tone Cane Weave Card

 This tone on tone CASE of the catalog is interesting, different, yet lovely.



It was my choice of project for my Facebook Live last Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023.

I used Orchid Oasis ink and a hint of cardstock to add pops of color.  I think it worked well, wouldn't you say?

I also used the Fabulous Frames dies, which are, well, FABULOUS. Also the Shaded Summer stamp set and dies.  I love the unique look of this card.

Country Bouquet New Catalog Sneak Peek

I have a treat for you on this Christmas weekend (which is snowy and blistery in the Midwest) - A sneak peek from the new upcoming Mini Catalog!

Let me introduce the Country Bouquet stamp set - a part of the Country Floral Lane suite of products by Stampin' Up

It is a beautiful collection of products that include the stamp set, 2 different sets of Designer Series Paper packs, a coordinating punch, the Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins, and a ribbon combo pack.

This suite is perfect for Valentine's Day, Friendship or any occasion that one would express love.  

It will be available just around the corner, beginning on January 5, 2023.

Here is the card I made using the Country Bouquet Stamp Bundle (punch and stamp set).








 I attached a piece of the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper to the card front.


Next, I attached a piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the front, slightly skewed, then another from the Country Gingham 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack that is filled with an exquisitely delicious variety of gingham patterns.





I used the coordinating punch and punched some shapes from the Country Floral Lane 12x12 Designer Series Paper pack.  


I attached them to a Basic White circle die cut and added them to the card front.



Isn't it the sweetest?
