Site Under Construction

Hello to you all my crafty friends! Over the next couple of weeks, I will be making some changes to the site as well as my Facebook page. I am trying some new logos/icons as I try to re-brand myself. I hope this does not cause any inconvenience to anyone. My goal is to have everything completed for the new look by July 1st at 8 am.

As always, Happy Stamping!!

June 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s theme is Masculine. You have just joined me from Dana Sullivan’s post. You are currently visiting Nicole with Sugar and scraps. I can’t wait to show you my project! Being that this hop falls close to Father’s Day, I decided to do a Father’s’s Day card with the Rooted In Nature stamp set and coordinating dies. I have really loved this stamp set and the coordinating dies, and am glad it carried over into the new catalog. I have been able to create so many different projects with just the dies alone.

I used earthy tones, and a basic sentiment on the front. The inside is blank so I can write my own message.

This card is nothing fancy, just sort of plain, but that was what I was aiming for. I do not do masculine cards well, and so this was a challenge for me.

Thanks so much for hopping with me today!

June 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop.This month’s color combination is DAffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Soft Sea Foam! I am so excited to be part of this fun collaboration of international stampers.

You have just arrived from Kristie Wilson’s blog. You are currently visiting Nicole with Sugar & Scraps. I am in the United States. Thank you for dropping by. I do hope you enjoy my project. This months project was made using the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

I used the watercolor smoosh technique for this card. I also did some flicking of Flirty Flamingo and Wink of Stella on the white piece.

I flicked some Soft Sea Foam onto the green piece.

I used my Aquapainter and my ink pads to color in the floral arrangement on the top of the pot. I really hope you enjoyed my project. Click on the next button to hop over to Rebecca-Jo Unwin’s blog. Don’t forget to leave comments for all the talented stampers and their wonderful projects!

June 2020 Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Stamp N’ Blog Hop. This month’s theme is all about saying Hello to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. You have just arrived from Rochelle Laird-Smith‘s post. You are currently visiting Nicole from the U.S. Thank you for dropping by. I do hope you enjoy my project.

I decided to use one of my favorite returning sets, Dandelion Wishes! I really like how easy this stamp set is to use. Enjoy my project below!

I used simple stamping as my basis for this design but added a little twist. I stamped the words and the dandelions in Misty Moonlight and covered them with clear embossing powder and then heat embossed.

It is a little difficult to see in the pictures, but it gave the ink a nice shiny appearance.

I used Balmy Blue and Whisper White card stock. This card is really simple, but I think it turned out nicely, and the same effect could be achieved with just stamps, ink, and paper. No heat embossing required!

Once again, thank you for visiting my blog today & I hope that you have found inspiration to create your own project. Please click on the the Next Arrow to hop along with the rest of us. Don’t forget when visiting to leave them a little love.

June 2020 Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 2020 Technique Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s technique is Spotlighting. I can’t wait to show you my project! I love this technique, and it can be done so many ways.

For my card today, I used a Purple Posy card base. I stamped my main image on a 3 1/2″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the image a second time on another piece of Whisper White and colored in the portion I wanted to “spotlight”.

I colored in my image using my watercolor pencils and an aqua painter. For the flowers I used my Purple Posy Stampin’ Write marker.

I stamped my greeting on a little piece of Purple Posy card stock and used my banner punch on the end.

You can see in this picture that I added a little Wink of Stella (my favorite addition to my cards right now). I used the Basic Rhinestones, and colored them with my Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends marker.

For my background, I stamped the 2 flowers from Free as a Bird in Versamark and heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder. I did this before adhering all my layers.

Thank you for hopping to my site and checking out my project! If you saw something you love, please contact your demonstrator to place your order. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to help you!

3D Paper Trimmer Blog Hop May 2020

Good Morning my friends! I am here today Hopping with a group of fabulous, international stampers for the 3D Paper Trimmer Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Wedding, and I have created a beautiful Frame Card for you.

Using Some bright colors and the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and coordinating dies, I made a pretty wedding card that could be customized for any color or theme! I really hope you enjoy my project!

This card only looks complicated, but it was really simple to create. I have posted a video below, but also have the measurements for you here.

Measurements:

Card Base – Thick Whisper White 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and folded in half.

Frame – Thick Whisper White 6 ½” x 5 ¼”, score on the 6 ½” side at ¼”, ½”, 6”, and 6 ¼”. Turn the cardstock and score on the 5 ¼” side at ¼”, ½”, 4 ¾”, and 5”.

Cardstock Frame – Flirty Flamingo 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, cut out the center leaving a ¼” border all the way around.

There is a shadow in the pictures, and I could not get a good photo of this card, but you can see a little clearer in the video.

In the video, I show you exactly how to put the card together. My colors are Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Shaded Spruce, Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, and Soft Seafoam. I added some Gold Foil elements and a custom die cut tag using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Again, I really hope you enjoyed my project, and the instructional video. And Thanks for hopping along with us today. Please click on the next button to be taken to the next post.

This set is carrying over into the NEW catalog and the coordinating dies will be making a return in the annual catalog as well.

This set is going to be the feature for my June Card Club by Mail.

Again, I really hope you enjoyed my post for this hop. Please click around below to see all the other projects. Have fun and don’t forget too leave a note of appreciation for the hop participants!

May 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s theme is Floral. You have just joined me from Deb Naylor’s post. You are currently visiting Nicole with Sugar and scraps. I can’t wait to show you my project! Being that this hop falls on mother’s day, I decided to do a mother’s day card with the retiring Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and coordinating framelits. I have really loved this stamp set and the coordinating dies. I have been able to create so many different projects with just the dies alone.

This beautiful card was inspired by Pat Tecza over at Ramblin’ Stamper and you can see her card HERE. I used the same color combo . . . Pretty Peacock, Grapefruit Grove, and Terracotta Tile. The center of the small flowers are stamped with Early Espresso ink. I stamped off once.

Looking at my close up, it looks like there is a lot going on here. I used a few repeating elements to create the floral arrangement. I threw in some Gold Foil pieces and some of the Woven Threads Sequins.

You can kind of see in this picture that I added some glimmer to a few of the flower pieces using my Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for hopping with me today!

May 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to the May 2020 Colour Combo Blog Hop.This month’s color combination is Calypso Coral, Gorgeous Grape, and Crumb Cake! I am so excited to be part of this fun collaboration of international stampers.

You have just arrived from Gez Carpenter’s blog. You are currently visiting Nicole with Sugar & Scraps. I am in the United States. Thank you for dropping by. I do hope you enjoy my project. This months project was made using the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

For this months card, I used Crumb Cake as the card base. I used Gray Granite ink for the leaf image on the card base. I stamped full strength, and then I stamped the leaves a second time. It actually was quite a simple card to make.

To get the pretty color mix on my sentiment, which is die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I first inked my stamp in Calypso Coral. Then I took my Gorgeous Grape ink pad and inked a few spots on the words, using the corner of the ink pad. Yes, I mixed my inks…but I went light to dark, and so it is ok. The butterflies are in Gorgeous Grape and the flowers are Calypso Coral. I had to fussy cut them out.

I finished off my project with a sprinkling of Rhinestones. I added all my pieces using dimensionals. I really hope you enjoyed my project. Click on the next button to hop over to Caroline Peck’s blog. Don’t forget to leave comments for all the talented stampers and their wonderful projects!
