Monday's One Stop, Blog Hop: "Rooted In Nature"

Hello Stamping Friends,

I wanted to share one of my favorite new bundles in the 2018 Stampin' Up! annual catalog called, Rooted In Nature.  This stamp and die set is full of wonderful nature images and really fun sentiments.  Also part of this bundle is the Nature's Poem designer series paper which is full of lovely color!   
I will be creating an original card with this set soon, but for now I wanted to share some beautiful creations from the web for Monday's One Stop, Blog Hop.  Please go and visit these creative bloggers to see more of their work, and...
Happy Stampin!

Fabulous Garden Impressions

Hello Stamping Friends,

I'm back today from a long weekend of board gaming!  Yep!  You read correctly.  lol  My husband and I are board gamers and we attend a convention twice a year in Dallas, Texas called Board Game Geek.  It's a great time and sometimes I even bring a little stamping along if I get tired of playing games.  Yes!  I am proof that the two interests can be combined.  So....onto the card making side of my hobbies!

When I pre-ordered this paper from Stampin' Up! I had no idea just how much I would fall in love with it.  Oh my goodness, folks.  If you love florals and bright colors, this dsp is just for you.  

I gained inspiration from Mary Fish's card here,  but I changed a few things up to make it my own.  (Thank you, Mary!)

Here is what I came up with using the new Garden Impressions designer series paper, and brand new in-color, Pineapple Punch cardstock and ribbon.  
I hope you enjoy it and are looking forward to the new 2018-19 SU annual catalog as much as I have.  It's going to be an amazing year of paper crafting!

Tic Tac Tuesday#3 for TSOT

Hello Creative Friends,

I'm here today with a Tic Tac Tuesday challenge from the ladies over at Try Stampin-Or Not-On Tuesday
Here is the challenge.  Pretty fun, right?

I hope you like the card today.  Leave me a comment if you have an extra minute and tell your friends to hop on over for a visit, too!

Blessings and Happy Stamping,

So, I chose the bottom, horizontal row:  Green, Outdoors, and Oval.  I used the Share What You Love, Gotta Have It All bundle!

My card

I actually used Rich Razzleberry as a single base panel and then used the Share What You Love dsp as the full card mounted on top.  I lined the inside with shimmery white insert.

Thank You in Blues, Greens, and Gems

Hello Creative Friends,

I have to be really honest and tell you that sometimes I just lose my creative mojo.  This last year it was truly just gone.  I didn't feel well and needed surgery and the last thing on my mind was being creative or making cards.  
So, I am getting myself back into gear and just playing around with paper, colors, and different products.  I may not LOVE every single thing I make, but I'm still going to share with you because creativity is a process!  Thanks for joining me on the journey.  <3

Enjoy and Happy Stampin'

I started out with paper scraps from the retiring Naturally Eclectic dsp and arranged them together with the retiring Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon in Emerald Envy.  The sentiment, however is brand new in the upcoming 2018-19 catalog and is from the set called Accented Blooms, and stamped in Night of Navy.

I used the Tailored Tag punch which had been previously released in the 2018 Occasions catalog and happily, will carry over to the 2018-19 SU annual catalog.

Finally, few little accent pearls finish the look.  These pretty little artisan pearls coordinate with the new stunning Share What You Love suite of products

Lovely Mosaic For The As You See It Challenge #176

Hello Creative Friends,

I'm here on Tuesday for the As You See It Challenge which was to create a card with a mosaic vibe.  Here was the challenge sketch:

And here was my take on the sketch.  I had been using quite a bit of the newly released Stampin' Up! Share What You Love designer series paper, and had a bunch of these odd shaped "scraps" leftover, so here ya go!  I'm calling it Lovely Mosaic.  
I hope you enjoy!


Petal Pink, a new color for the 2018-19 color re-vamp is the base for my card.  The Shaded Spruce panel is also brand new!  I think they are so gorgeous together.

The details on my card are subtle because I love how this specialty dsp speaks for itself.  The color combo is just lovely.

The bow on my card is done up in retiring Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, while the silver flower embellishment is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:

I'm Back and One Stop, Blog Hop Is Back...Moving To Mondays!

Hello stamping friends...
And welcome back to my Quick and Easy Stamping blog!  It's been nearly a year since I have shared any of my work or posts with you and I must say that I am very excited to be back blogging again!
I wanted to kick off my return with a One Stop, Blog Hop but instead of on Sundays, I'm moving this weekly post to Mondays.  Every Monday needs some creative inspiration in it, right?  So, I hope that each Monday, my "finds" for beautiful paper crafting projects will be inspiring!   

Each of the amazing projects that I will share here has the name of the designer on the card photo.  Visit those blogs and say hi to those designers.  What beautiful work they share so willingly with all of us!  

A  brand new Stampin' Up! catalog is on it's way and will be going live on June 1st!  I simply cannot wait for this catty release.  It is my favorite, maybe of my whole 15 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!   It's really fun and amazing and I will be sharing my love of it right here on my blog.  So, come back often and check in with me.  Don't forget to leave lots of comments with your thoughts, ideas, or questions.  I'd love to hear from you!

Many Blessings and Happy Stampin'!

Paper Players Sketch Challenge #350

Hello Stamping Friends,

Back today with a wonderfully versatile sketch challenge from the creative folks over at The Paper Players blog.  I just love this sketch and can see many future cards in my mind's eye using it.  ;-)

For my card I used some older products, but combined them with some new in colors as well.  It was a fun challenge for me, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Blessings and Happy Stampin'!

The Sketch:

My Card:
For my card I used Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and Whisper White card stocks, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Archival Black stamp pads, and the fun Naturally Eclectic DSP.  Stamp sets are Painter's Palette and Work of Art.
(please forgive the bad lighting!)


A Lemon Lime Twist stitched frame and a simple Pool Party baker's twine bow finished this simple card perfectly for me.

Fabulous Five New In-Colors!

Hello Stampin' Friends,

Today I bring you the 5 beautiful new Stampin' Up! in-colors!  I can't believe how perfectly these new colors coordinate with our existing color offerings. They're simply yummy!! 
For today, I'm playing along with the color challenge over at the  Fab Friday blog, and wanted to share my creations with you. 
I hope you enjoy!

Here is the challenge:

Here are the cards I created:
On this card I used the new Lovely Words framelits (143733) dies along with the fun, and funky Playful Backgrounds stamp set.(141920)  The top panel is layered on a piece of black cardstock and then onto a Berry Burst (144243) card base.

On this card I cut strips of the new designer paper stack called Fresh Florals (144131) and layered them on a whisper white panel.  I finished the front panel with a piece of basic black and mounted it on a Lemon Lime Twist card base. I created the sentiment with the new 
Happy Birthday thinlit (143700)
