Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: Petals and Paisleys for PPA 314

Hello Stamping Friends!

Well, it's been a busy time of life for us and my stamping offerings have been non-exsistent.  I hope to share with you a little more consistently in the next few months.  

In the Stampin' Up! world a new holiday catalog is going to be released on Sept. 1, and my card offering for you today is from the new catty.  It's based on the inspiration sketch from Paper Pal Arts.

I used the soon-to-be-released designer series paper called Petals & Paisleys, along with the new stamp set, Paisleys & Posies.  I love the new Mint Macaron taffeta ribbon paired with the paper as well.   Swoon! 

I hope you enjoy it and take some time to use this sketch for your own inspiration as well.

Thank You, For PP303

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's good to be back today to post an offering for the The Paper Players color challenge this week.  I have pretty much fallen head over heels in love with the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper in the new Stampin Up annual catalog.  Gosh it's so soft and pretty, and it worked perfectly with this color challenge from Nance
I hope you check into using this beautiful new paper too! 
Enjoy and happy stamping,

Shine for TSOT#271

Hello Stamping Friends,

Here today with a design for the TSOT sketch challenge.  I realize that I've used this new dsp, Pop of Pink, in another recent card, but I just had to cut into it to see what I could create.  As I mentioned before, pink isn't really my color, and I'm out of my comfort zone....but that's a good thing, right?   

So, onto my card for this challenge!

I hope you enjoy and find inspiration. 
Many blessings,

Sketch #271 (go ahead.  Try it out this week. ;-))

My card:

Please excuse the poor photography in these photos.  I had a pretty difficult time capturing the pretty shine and elegance of this gold polka dot dsp.  In any case, I still kinda  l o v e   it! 

A few details:

A single rhinestone can make a card just pop, and I think it does it's job perfectly on this focal sentiment!

The stampin supply list is going to be quick on this post!

Cardstock:  Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Pop of Pink DSP, Gold Foil Paper
Stamp Set:  Sunburst Sayings

Thanks in Pop Of Pink for #GDP036

Hello Stampin Friends,

Today's card was inspired by a CASE challenge over at Global Design Project.  Wow!  What amazing cards I've seen from the designers who share on the GDP blog.

The challenge was to CASE this card from the talented Paula Dobson.

I REALLY wanted to challenge myself and use the new 
Stampin' Up! Pop of Pink dsp.  (pink isn't normally my friend.  lol)

So...since I already had all of my circle punches on my desk, that's what inspired me toward my card for today.  
I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card for today!
Happy Stampin!

Happy Balloon Day! Freshly Made Sketches #237

Hello Stamping Friends,

I'm finally back to playing along with blog challenges and I have an offering for you today!  

I chose this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches because it was so open to interpretation.  

I decided to use my favorite dsp from the retiring 
Occasions Catalog (May 31) 
called Shine On.  It's just a bit quirky and fun!  

If you like it as much as I do, be sure to order it before it's gone for good.  ;-)

I hope you enjoy!

Another Sneak Peek. ;-)

Hello Again, Stamping Friends!

Here today to show you a big sneak peek at one of the newest designer series paper packs from Stampin' Up! coming out on June 1, 2016.  


Affectionately Yours DSP

I absolutely LOVE this paper...

It brings me great JOY...

And, I hope you enjoy my use of these bright, happy, and joyful patterns.  

Again, my inspiration came from Patty Bennett, where she uses the diagonal slash card template.  Thanks again, Patty!

So quick and easy!
