Rose Wonder Blends!



I am having such a good time coloring with our new Stampin' Blends and I have some EXCITING NEWS for you. You will be able to purchase the news Stampin' Blends beginning November 1st....yay! And I have a deal for you....during the month of November, order at least $70 worth of the Stampin' Blends and I'll send you the Color Lifter for FREE!


Now on to today's Stampin' Blends project. One of the best stamp sets to color images with is the Rose Wonder stamp set. Isn't this yellow rose striking using the Stampin' Blends?



I used the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Blends for the rose and leaves. I added some highlights using the Color Lifter. I love all the detail that blending the colors together added. I'm obsessed with the Blends!

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!




It's "black & orange" day today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary! I let the Spooky Night Designer Paper do all of my work for me:


This designer paper is all black and orange so it was perfect. I even used my Cat Punch to cut out the cat image from the designer paper. Once all of my layers were cut, all I had left to do was add one stamped layer using the Festive Phrases stamp set. I stamped the image twice, once using Basic Black Ink and the 2nd one using Pumpkin Pie Ink. I made a separate banner for the orange layer by cutting around the sentiment and layering over the black image:



I quickly sent my card to a young boy who is fighting brain cancer in my home state of Maine. It was a Halloween card shower request he made to his Mom and I forgot to keep a note of the measurements of my card layers. I mailed it out the same day the card was created. If you are interested in doing this with one of your Halloween cards, here's the story: Maine Boy Card Shower Request


Thanks for stopping by to visit me today and make sure you visit my teammates! Now you can follow the rest of the Saturday Blog Hop by clicking on the links below to visit my talented teammates!

3D Thursday & FREE Project Sheet!


This week for 3D Thursday, Twila Davis from Stamp A Little Longer is up with her beautiful treat box using the Be Merry Designer Paper. Isn't is just the cutest? I'll have a FREE Project Sheet to create this project at the end of my post today for you!




So pretty with the window in the front to see the treats peeking through. Twila used the Everyday Label Punch to add the window along with a piece of our Window Sheets!



I also like the way the top of the treat bag folds over and a little sentiment tag is tucked under the flap! And the Be Merry Designer Paper is my favorite Christmas paper this year. I just love those stripes!


Here's the link to download our team Project Sheet so you can create this same project. Click on the link below the photo:

Stampin' Dreams October Blog Hop!


Welcome to our monthly Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. I'm so glad you are visiting! For October we are all creating projects with "Black, White and One Other Color".

This is my project for this month with the addition of Wild Wasbi as my additional color:


I used the Merry Patterns stamp set for my card. This is an exclusive stamp set you can earn for FREE until October 31st. Place an order of $300 on your own, with family and friends, or host a workshop and earn it for FREE!


I stamped the reindeer three times on this card. Can you tell how?



Here are the steps I used:

  • Card Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Basic Black Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Stamp the reindeer using Basic Black Ink and to the left. Stamp the branches at his feet using Wild Wasabi Ink. 
  • Layer #4: Merry Music Designer Paper 5-1/2" x 1". (longer then you need and trim-able) Stamp the reindeer over the Designer Paper to the left and position the center of his body on the designer paper. Glue over the image on the Whisper White Cardstock layer, lining up the reindeer. Trim the ends. Glue to Basic Black Cardstock layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Layer #5: Stamp the reindeer using Wild Wasabi Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Hand-cut the sweater. Glue over the reindeer on the designer paper. 
  • Bling: Add Black Rhinestone Jewels on the sweater and as berry's for the branches. 
I hope you enjoyed my card today. Please follow the line-up below to visit all of my teammates that are participating today. You will be inspired by some beautiful projects. Thanks for visiting me today!
