Diamond Thanks

While playing with the Treehouse Adventure set I kept looking at the roof image and figured out that stamping it twice will give you a lovely little diamond shape.  So that's what I did for card.  I repeatedly made diamond shapes using only the roof image of the stamp set.  I love the abstract look and all the overlapping diamonds on this card.  The colors I used are Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape. The greeting is from the Tropical Chic set. 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!

Treehouse Adventure Week

All week long I'm sharing projects all made using the Treehouse Adventure stamp set! This set is so cute and I got it for one reason----you'll see that card on Thursday! But once I started using it I loved it soooo much I ended up with 4 incredible fun cards that all use the same colors and this one set.  The colors I used are Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape.  This is probably the best rainbow combination I've made!  I love it so much!!! 
For this card I repeatedly stamped the house in every color all over my cardstock.  I stamped the house image in the full strength ink, then all the other pieces of the house I stamped off on scratch paper to get lighter shade.  This is a great way to get a range of colors from one ink pad.  I finished the card with a greeting from Sunshine Sayings and some Granny Apple Green.  This would be such a cute card for a house warming.  I have lots more to share with this stamp set.  Check back all week long! 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Tropical Chic

The Tropical Chic Bundle is a bundle I wasn't sure I'd love but now that I have it, I LOVE it!!!  I've made so many cards with it and it's truly a favorite! I love all the leaf framelits and I love cutting them out of all the new bright colors! I used Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst for all my leaves. 
Everything is mounted on a gold glimmer circle.  Did you know that our glimmer paper is new and improved.  No more glitter rubbing off on your hand! Our new glimmer paper has glitter that stays put plus it's thinner and easier to cut with our framelits and punches.  I finished this card with some gold metallic pearls.  So cute!

Thanks for looking see you soon!!!!!

Love You To Pieces Class

Last night I held a specialty class where we focused only on this amazing bundle.  The Love You To Pieces Bundle is one of my favorites in the new catalog.  It's super affordable under $40 and there's soooo much you can do with it!!!  The guests at my class last night not only got to take home their own Love You To Pieces Bundle to play with immediately but they also got to make these 4 cards to jump start their creativity!
I love the colors on the first card! I love that the framelit comes with a piece to cut out all those cute puzzle pieces!!!  The second card is so cute and I love the simplicity of it! (Please ignore the sun glare on the card). I love pairing white and vanilla together, I don't think I do it enough!
The next card is a 4x4 square card and is super cute!  When you use the DSP as part of your main focal image the card comes together so quickly! This DSP is the Garden Impression DSP. 
Finally this is my favorite card! I love the colors I love the greeting I love it all!!! 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Happy To Know You

With our DSP on sale this month I thought this was a great time to start using it.  This piece of DSP is from the Twinkle Twinkle package and it's probably one of my favorites in the package. I love the simple striped pattern of it.  In addition to the DSP I had an embossed piece of Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, embossed with the Tufted Embossing folder (it's a must have by the way!).  For my greeting I used the new Friendly Expressions. 
I cut out the greeting using the Stitched Shapes Framelits then I fussy cut the 'ppy' on the happy.  I wanted the DSP to be flush against the greeting and unless I could cut those letters out it wouldn't happen otherwise.  Plus I love the way half the greeting hangs over the DSP, it's a fun and unique way to do it.  I mounted it on a scallop oval from the Layer Ovals Framelits and adhered the entire card together. 

If you want to get your DSP free shop the Buy 3 get 1 free sale now!

Friendly Expressions In Lovely Lipstick

Let's talk for a minute about how perfect this color is.  Lovely Lipstick is a new In Color and it's the perfect mix between pink and red.  It's defiantly one of my favorites and I'll be reaching for it a lot! I love how perfectly the ribbon and the card coordinate. That is one of the best things about our amazing products.  The coordination is so perfect every time!  This card also features the new Subtle Embossing Folder.  This embossing folder makes our smooth card stock in to textured or even a linen look card stock!  So pretty!! It's a simple addition that makes a big statement!!  If you love this color and all the new In Colors and are in the Albuquerque area like me, join me for my July class.

Otter Fun

This little guy, I just can't get enough of!  He's so cute and adorable you just want to squeeze his cheeks!  I made a couple of these cards for a friend and I love how they came out. Of course I used Stampin' Blends to color him. 
The card is a tri-fold card so the top opens up, then the bottom.  It's such a simple and cute design. I embossed the bottom of the card with the Tufted Embossing folder.  The greeting is from the Little Elephant stamp set. 
I'm not the only one obsessed with otters right now.  Our local aquarium just opened a new river otter exhibit.  They're so cute in person too!!!!  I bet they'd love our new Postcard Pals set!

Postcard Pals Again

You guys this is my new favorite stamp set ever!  I seriously cannot put it down!  I've been creating more with this cute pelican and the even cuter otter (see him again tomorrow).  Today's card is pretty cute too though!!!  I love the pelican a lot more than I thought I would! The card is pretty simple, I cut him out and a scallop circle to mat him on with the Layering Circles framelits. 
I added an embossed greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings set and added some of the Polka Dot ribbon to match the embossed polka dot background.  The pelican was colored with the Stampin' Blends and I'm happy to say ALL the colors are now in stock and I should have more colors to play with very soon!!!  YAY!!!! 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Stamp Camp Wrap Up

I love stamp camp so much!  It's such a fun event and because it's all geared around the brand new catalog and everyone gets to use brand new products there's always so much excitement in the room!  If you've never attended stamp camp, plan to attend next years!  We always kick off stamp camp with the retired stamp set sale! This years sale was huge, HUGE!!!  My BFF Kim is standing all the way at the end of the sale tables, she's so tiny!  That's how big it was!!! 
Not all of this is my stuff.....though a great deal of it is.  I always ask a few of my team members to help me at my sale, this is not a one person job.  For helping me I allow them to sell, so this is also some of my team members stuff too.  You can find great deals at this sale, there was TONS of stuff marked down to under $5!!  The sale opens before stamp camp at 9am, and stamp camp attendees get to shop first, an extra perk for attending stamp camp.  At 10am the sale is open to anyone to come shop.     
Once stamp camp opens at 10am it's time to stamp!  My guests get to make 6 cards all featuring brand new stamps, colors and accessories.  This year because we have so many new colors to work with I only ended up using one new In Color.  Don't worry my July class is all about the new In Colors!
Every table is set up with a different card and everyone just rotates from table to table until they've made all the cards.  I heard lots of good things from everyone about the cards that they got to make, so here they are!  
This one features the new Vivid Vases set and punch along with the new colors Petal Pink, Mango Melody and Gray Granite. 
This one features the new Detailed With Love set and the trio punch.  LOVE that punch!!!  Plus the new Very Vanilla Polka Dot Ribbon and Merry Merlot!
This one is my favorite color ever!  Coastal Cabana!!! It also features the new Glitter Enamel Dots and the Painted Glass set.
This card might be my favorite from the class.  It uses one of my new favorites, Abstract Impressions plus the amazing color combo of Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green!  We also used the new Tufted embossing folder which is GORGEOUS!!!!
 This beautiful gold embossed card uses Grapefruit Grove and the Accented Blooms set.  So pretty!
Finally this one from the Lilypad Lake set.  I love this card.  It's so simple but so stunning.  If you don't think you like Soft Sea Foam you haven't tried it yet.  It's awesome!  I won't have any more posts this week, I'm taking a blogging break get July organized! I've been keeping the kids super busy!  We've been on the go and have had more planned this summer than ever before.  Which is great, but it's exhausting!  The kids are fine, I'm worn out LOL! So I'm taking the rest of this week 'off' and I'll see you on Monday!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Pelican Surprise

Of all the animals in the Postcards Pals set, the pelican was the one I was sure I'd like the least.  I just didn't think he was that cute. Then I colored him and I was instantly converted to loving pelicans, or at least this one.  He surprised me and made me love him!  The card turned out soooo adorable too!  I cut a little window in the front of the card.....  

....and adhered the pelican inside the card.  I love this layout, it's such a fun and different design. 

He's colored with the Stampin' Blends and seriously if the fish is that happy to be in the pelicans mouth who are we not to love him too!  Plus he's wearing an aviator hat and googles. I mean come on!!  So cute!!!!  Over the weekend I had my huge New Catalog Stamp Camp! I have lots to share all about it tomorrow, check back!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!
