Valentine - The Paper Players Challenge #179

The Paper Players Challenge #179, a single layer Valentine's Challenge.   

I like simple cards.  This is no secret. I love all of the entries in this challenge and could easily CASE them! They are amazing.  I wanted to try something I don't do often.  I join challenges to be challenged so I wanted to create something simple but out of my comfort zone.

I used masking  and spritzers to create this card.   Real Red and Smoky Slate ink were used to create the heart and "love"  I added a glittery "u" and some bling for a small amount of embellishments.    I hope you like it!

Check out all of the great entries and samples for this challenge.

Eye-Catching "Hey There"

As a follow up to my last post I wanted to show you another card using the Photopolymer Stamp Set "Eye-Catching Ikat."  This set is visually  interesting while being simple and inexpensive.   The possibilities are endless. 

 I used Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive ink for the pattern.  The Bakers Twine is Pear Pizazz.

I used the "Just Sayin'" Set for the sentiment and those wonderful new Word Bubble Framelits.  "Hey There" is stamped in Chocolate Chip.

Simple, gender neutral, and fun.  Everything I like in a card!

Eye-Catching Photopolymer 134624  $16.95

Expect to see more of this set from me.  It is so easy to use and the ideas are endless.

Eye-Catching in Purple

Hello all.   I know, it has been awhile!  I had full intentions of getting this post out on Monday night but I started a new book.  I just finished it and I am back to reality!  I read "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn.   Have you read this book? If you have you know what I mean when I say AHHHHHH!  If you have not, you should, if for no other reason than to see what all the fuss is about because believe me there is fuss!  (You could wait for the Ben Affleck movie but I would recommend reading the book first)

Have you ever watched a movie that was so intense and so frustrating you got up and yelled at the screen?!  This book was like that for me.   I still don't know if I liked it, well ok that is not entirely true. I did like it, in that way one might like a roller-coaster.  You feel ill all day but totally worth the ride.  This book is an absolute roller-coaster.    So that is why I am a little behind on my posts.

Well, back to my post.

I got my hands on one of Stampin' Up's new photopolymer stamp sets "Eye-Catching Ikat."  It is unique and fun with endless possibilities for both card making and scrap-booking.   I made this little gender-neutral card for just about any occasion.

 I used three shades of purple, Whisteria Wonder,  Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant.  I used all three for both my ink and card stock.  I really like the combination of different shapes and designs.

Circles and Chevron collide.

To finish off the card I added a little "woo-hoo" word bubble from the "Just Sayin'" Stamp set.  

It was a very easy card that only took minutes!  This may be a new go-to stamp set for me.

Let me know what you think, about the card (or the book).  I would love to hear from you.

Just Sayin' - Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #118

Have you ever looked at a product and just known you would love, use it and keep it forever?   That is what happened when I saw the Just Sayin' stamp set and coordinating Word Bubbles Framelits.  I mean, "Word Bubbles!!"  awesome!

When I saw the FMS challenge for this week I pulled out my all new Stamp set and got to work.  I hope you like it.

I first thought was about colour and background.  I wanted to use colours that I had not used in a while and the In Colour Baked Brown Sugar and to coordinate with it I used Bermuda Bay.  the Background was more of a challenge. I wanted texture but not too busy and keeping with my love of Word Bubbles I created a white on white background by cutting out and attaching a number of framelits.

I added a few little flags and some detail with a marker.  Let me know what you think.

Have a great day!

All New Occasions Catalogue ....

Arriving today is the all new Occasions Catalogue, it is full of fun products and ideas for Birthdays, Easter, Valentines and much much more!

Yesterday my Facebook followers got to see my first project with a great new Stamp Set from this Catalogue, not to mention the Sale-a-Bration Sneak Peek.  Today I want to show you an amazing kit in the new Catalogue that I finished this afternoon.

On Page 21 in the corner is this great kit called "Burlap and Blooms Simply Created wreath Kit" as soon as I saw it I wanted to create it.  

You get everything you see here to create this wreath.  All you need is a glue gun!
I switched up the brads for some others (retired rhinestone brads) but otherwise kept to the script.  It took me maybe 2 hours.
I love the result.  It is so fun, and makes me think of spring.  We got 5cm of Snow today so a little spring is more than welcome.
Let me know what you think!
For those of you who do not follow me on Facebook (why not!!!).   Below is the card I posted the other day.  
The card was created with a new Stamp Set called "Big Wish" and a few "sneak peek" items from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration!  Ink used was Crisp Cantaloupe,  Summer Starfruit, Pool Party and Pistachio Pudding.
I also used Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White Card Stock.  The background was created using the "Gorgeous Grunge" Stamp Set.

I would love to hear what you think.   What is your favourite new item from the Occasions Catalogue?

Happy New Year!

Well I have been taking a bit of a break from my craft room so I am sorry I have not been on here much in the past couple of weeks.   Honestly my craft room becomes Christmas central and is a wasteland for most of December.  I am finally cleaning it up and getting back to business.  

I got a few items from the all new Occasions Catalogue coming out this month and I will be playing with them this week.
Until I get it together enough to have some photos to post for you I wanted to show you some of the new items Stampin' UP products that have come out over the past two weeks and remind you of the Weekly Deals available now.

Valentines Day is approaching (I know you just packed up the Christmas stuff!!) and Stampin' Up has some truly adorable kits available now.

A Whole Lot Of Love

Remember last year, I do, like it was yesterday!  Stampin' UP came out with a great stamping option when they introduced a new line of stamps.  Photo Polymer stamps are less expensive than the original stamps, they are easy to place and stay on those little acrylic blocks!  There is a new set available right now that is completely fun and great for Valentines or Wedding Cards.

Weekly Deals

And don't forget, Stampin' Up just added NEW Items to the Clearance Rack!
