Bird Banter and The Blends

Good morning everyone! It's the beginning of a very busy couple of days for my family. My girls' will be showing their animals at the local livestock show! We're a bundle of nerves this morning for sure! We have 10 rabbits and a goat named Harvey. My oldest daughter as spent 6 months raising this cutie and we're sad to see him go. 

So, needless to say, I will be out of the office Monday and Tuesday. I will try to answer emails through out the day, but please be patient if you email me! 

Todays card features the Blends markers and the adorable set called Bird Banter. I kept it very simple so that the bird will be the main focus. 

I also colored his balloon with the Wink of Stella when I was done coloring it. It adds such a fun little bit sparkle! 

Don't forget- today is your last chance to get your order in to qualify for the three free make and takes from Facebook Friday! Make sure to use the Hostess Code 3VJ6ZQXC!. You can order here.

Mini Embroidery Hoops and A Good Day

Hey everybody! Today's project features one of the most fun embellishments Stampin' Up has ever carried- the Mini Embroidery Hoops! 

I was so intrigued when I saw these in the catalog and couldn't wait to play with them. I made this pretty simple card yesterday and am happy to report they are JUST as cute in person and JUST as fun as you think they're going to be. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere it. 

The stamp set is on the same page in the catalog and it's called A Good Day. Its's a sweet set. It coordinates perfectly with the new 1 1/8" and 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punches as well. And the DSP is the Myths and Magic DSP. Look at the beautiful pattern- it's so pink! Swoon!

If you want to see another project featuring these fun little goodies, make sure to join my Facebook Group tomorrow at 2:00 CST for Facebook Friday!

Stamp Club To Go Scrapbook Page- Heart Happiness

Hello everyone! Today I've got this month's Stamp Club To Go Scrapbook page and card. And can you guess- I went with Valentines and the beautiful Heart Happiness set! I have worn this set out! I love it so much! 
My Stamp Club to Go members get the complete components to  scrapbook page as one of their three projects each month. Or, if they are not a scrapbooker, they get an alternate card featuring the same products. 
I used the Painted with Love DSP as my color inspiration. I kept it kind of simple because the paper is very busy and I didn't want to make the page feel too crowded or busy. 

I stamped the hearts, cut them out with the matching Framelits, folded them in half and then mounted them on solid hearts cut with the same Framelits. It gives the page lots of depth. 

And here you can see the card has the same effect. 

If you are interested in joining my Stamp Club To Go, check out the details here and email me!

Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You- Stamp Club To Go

Good morning everyone! I have a quick post today- a card feature more HEARTS! I can't stop using both the Heart Happiness and Sure Do Love You sets lately! 

This is actually this month' Stamp Club To Go card. I chose to use hearts and kind of go with a Velentine's Day feel, but used a sentiment for  a general occasion. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Blooms (Sale A Bration) set. 

I embossed the background stamp in Gold Embossing Powder for a bigger effect. It worked because this card is beautiful in person! The DSP is Petal Passion (Occasions Catalog.)

If you are interested in joining my Stamp Club To Go, check out the details here and email me! 

Don't forget- today is the last day to get your order in for last week's Facebook Friday! 
Details (and prize giveaway) can be found here.
