Stampers Dozen Blog Hop April 2019 Spring Color Challenge!


Hey there! Welcome to the April Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! We're using this color combo today:


Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst are retiring, so order SOON. The Retiring List posts April 15th!

I used the Gatefold Blossoms Dies  and Bouquet Blooms to create three cards with the color challenge. This bundle is retiring, but don't wait until the last minute to order. The dies could sell out soon!


I started with a Lemon Lime Twist 8 1/2" x 5" card base to get two from each 8 1/2" x 11" piece. Download my tutorial from this post to get the full directions.


Gatefold Blossoms includes dies to cut out all of these beautiful blossoms!


Bouquet Blooms even includes this "sunburst" image, as well as all of the words I used on these cards.


Whisper White base:


I colored the leaves with a Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write Marker.




I added strips of Lemon Lime Twist 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper  to this one. The stripes is the flip side of the polka-dots.


Stamping direct-to-paper is a fun look!


Berry Burst (retiring) and Lemon Lime Twist (also retiring) are soooo pretty!


Our hop is small but mighty this month! Click on any of the names in the list for more color inspiration!

Hey there! Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!


Our theme for March is Sale-a-bration Coordination, so I the Painted Seasons Designer Paper to make a Christmas card!


I stamped "WISHES" from More Than Words with Call Me Clover on Crumb Cake,  rubbed my embossing buddy to dry the ink, stamped "Christmas" with Versamark, sprinkled Copper embossing powder, then heated with my Heat Tool.


I heat embossed the Painted Seasons pine cone with Copper powder, then cut with a Four Seasons Framelit.  Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack ribbon makes an adorable tiny bow!


I decided to leave the inside blank, except for the copper pine cone corners.

I used the new Love You To Pieces Bundle of stamps and framelits to create my card:


 The framelits cut an actual puzzle! I'm really excited to play with this bundle some more!

Hey there! It's time for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop April edition: Think Spring!

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper is retiring, as is the Wisteria Wonder Card stock, ink,  and Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon.


The Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch ARE NOT retiring, although the bundle price savings will go away after May 31st. Clear Faceted Gems are staying in the Annual Catalog too!


Inside I stamped a Beautiful Bouquet sentiment, which is also staying.

Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop September Color Challenge!

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!


Our theme this month is a color challenge: Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, and Very Vanilla!

 As soon as I saw these colors together, I knew it would be perfect to pair with the Painted Harvest stamp set. It's early in the Holiday Catalog season, but so far I've seen more Painted Harvest projects online than any other Holiday Catalog set!

I added Crushed Curry and Soft Suede to the color palette to add to the warmth of the three original colors.


I used sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet set. "Happy Birthday" fits nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch. I added a Fresh Fig Pretty Label that I cut in half to "stretch" behind the Fresh Fig-sponged greeting before adding it to the cards' belly-band.


 As the card is opened the "shutter" starts to open to reveal the inside sentiment:


The farther you open the card, more of the sentiment is revealed:


I added a Gold Faceted Gem for a bit of sparkle!

Though probably not a card you would want to make a million of, it has its' place on the fireplace mantel!


Now it's time to move on to Judy Garza's blog to see what she has created with these colors!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, June Edition, Celebrating the Men in Our Lives!

Hey there! The Stamper's Dozen Blog Hoppers are celebrating the men in our lives! I have one husband, three sons, three sons-in-law, and five grandsons, so I have lots to celebrate!

 I have the One Wild Ride set, so I decided to make a pair of easel cards; a Father's Day, and a birthday card:


I decided to go "old school": no Big Shot or embossing; just stamping and punches. I fussy-cut the motorcycle after stamping with Basic Black Archival ink on a Silver Foil Sheet. Since we no longer have StazOn ink, using Basic Black on something as non-porous as Silver Foil only requires a bit of heating, mostly blowing, with a Heat Tool to dry. I layered onto Basic Black card stock, then fussy-cut again before adhering with dimensionals.


I used the Classic Label punch on the Teeny Tiny Wishes greeting, and fussy-cut the "Route 66" sign.


I used the Best Badge to create the "easel stop". I added  silver Metallic Enamel Shapes for  a bit of sparkle.


I stamped the inside with One Wild Ride images:


I turned the easel on its' side for the birthday card:


I combined Best Badge and Classic Label punches for the greeting:


I punched the "Route 66" signs with the 3/4" Circle punch and matted with a Basic Black 1" Circle.


Inside I stamped-off a Smoky Slate motorcycle behind a Basic Black Special Celebrations sentiment.


Now it's time to hop on to Judy Garza's blog to see her creation!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, May Edition, New Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Hope you've had a lovely Mother's Day! Whether you are a mother or not, we all have, or have had, one to celebrate. I've had a wonderful day with all six of my children, three sons-in-law, and nine grandchildren. We also celebrated with my Mother-in-Law. The guys did the grilling, so the day was relaxing. After lunch we played "Minute to Win It"-type games. There's a video somewhere of me winning a round of "eat a vanilla wafer off your forehead without using your hands", and Mark & I won a round of throwing and catching miniature marshmallows in a paper cup! Fun Times! I think all of the mother's had a good day!

Now, it's time for another Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay! Our theme this month is the New Catalog: A Sneak Peek!


For my project I used new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack, Happy Birthday Thinlets die, and Colorful Seasons stamps.


 I created a monochromatic card with the new In Color Tranquil Tide and Whisper White.

I created a banner by snipping a 3" x 4 3/4" strip of Tranquil Tide with my Paper Snips and then embossing with the brand spankin' new Oh My Stars  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It created a great background to mount the wonderful "Happy Birthday", cut with the new Happy Birthday Thinlets Die. Don't you just LOVE this die? I can tell I will be using it again and again!


Inside I stamped the fabulous "just breathe" phrase from Colorful Seasons and the fun beach chair, all with Tranquil Tide.

Stampin' Up! Stamer's Dozen Blog Hop February Edition Color Challenge!

Hey there! It's time!


Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop February Color Challenge

I used the Birthday Blast Bundle from page 11 of the Occasions Catalog.  My  "Chicks & Chocolate" stampers will make this card this weekend!


 This was a fun and easy card to make!


I inked the "celebrate you" stamp first with Versamark, then with Night of Navy. After stamping I sprinkled with clear powder and heated with my Heat Tool.


 I made the whole card exclusively with Birthday Blast!


Stampingrox  Project Tips!

1. I cut a piece of scrap paper the same size as the Mint Macaron layer to use as my guide to stamp the star blast image.


2. I only needed a small strip of Watermelon Wonder card stock to attach to the back of the Mint Macaron layer, so I laid my die about a 1/2" from the cardstock edge:

Hey there! Our Stampers Dozen Blog Hop theme for January is Sale-a-bration. Every time you spend $50 from January 4th through March 31st you get to choose something FREE from the Sale-a-bration brochure! yay!


I created with the already-so-popular-stamp-set-it's-already-on-backorder, Hey Chick!


I embossed the So Saffron layer with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which give a chicken-wire-ish look!


After I stamped the hen with Early Espresso ink I colored her body lightly with a Basic Black Watercolor Pencil. I colored her feet and beak with a Pumpkin Pie Watercolor Pencil, and her comb with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. I lightly scribbled some ground around her feet with an Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil.

After coloring I cut with a Layering Oval Framelit, then adhered to an Early Espresso scalloped oval.

Hey Chick!, which comes in wood-mount (includes coordinating wood blocks) or clear-mount (red rubber ready to attach to clear blocks) can be yours when you order at least $50 before tax & shipping in my online store:
