SNEAK PEEK: Dragonfly Dreams & Mini Blog Hop #3

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season.  I'm back...back with another sneak peek before the NEW! 2017 Occasions Catalog launches on January 4, 2017.  The wait isn't much longer!

Like the other two cards I shared last week, when Patty, Cindee and I got together earlier this month, we made this dreamy Dragonfly Dreams Card featuring the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies).  

Our design inspiration came from a card shared by Stampin' Up!'s co-founder, Shelly Gardner, at Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event in early November.  I don't have a picture of it, but I would say it looks very similar to the one I created below.


For our background, we used the new Watercolor Pencils, some Watercolor Paper and an Aqua Painter.  

The watercolor pencils we used are:
  • Daffodil Delight
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Melon Mambo
  • Rich Razzleberry 


Using a heavy hand, I colored on the four colors.  I then went over the colors in a zigzag pattern with the Aqua Painter and blended them.  I used a bit more water than usual because my goal was a splotchy look, and I got just what I wanted.


After letting the watercolor background dry, I finished my card off by flicking on some drops of Gold Wink of Stella, added some Gold Thread and a large die cut dragonfly cut from Shimmery White Cardstock, and stamped my sentiment in Archival Basic Black ink.  Lastly, I added my card front onto a Mambo Melon card base.

You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products used to create my card below; however, you can start ordering the new products on January 4, 2017.  Order the available products you need by placing your order in my Online Store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item.

I love how this card turned out, but I also love how Patty's and Cindee's cards turned out too.  Be sure to also check out what they made.  We each did something a little different.  Find links to their blogs below:

SNEAK PEEK: Succulent Garden & Stylish Stems Mini Blog Hop Day #2!

I'm back with another sneak peek from the 2017 Occasions Catalog!  When Patty, Cindee and I got together earlier this month, we created another beauty featuring two fab new 2017 Occasions Catalog products--the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.

The Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (Occasions Catalog, pg. 21) has so many great patterns, which made it hard to pick one for this card.  And the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies (Occasions Catalog, pg. 42) are so versatile.  You can either cut the negative image, like we did, or you can cut the negative image first and then use the outline image second to get a flower.  These dies will blow you away!  


We borrowed inspiration for this card from one in the Occasions Catalog on page 42.  Check it out!    

Flowers are so easy to create with, so how I wanted this card to turn out came to me in a flash...with a little help from my friends.  Cindee die cut the flowers out of a piece of 3-1/4" x 3-3/4" Whisper White cardstock for each of us, and then we all let our creative juices flow.  


I placed a piece of 3" x 3-1/2" Sweet Sugarplum cardstock behind my die cut flowers and adhered it in each of the four corners.

I stamped a banner piece of Mint Macaron cardstock with a sentiment from the That's the Tag Stamp Set (Occasions Catalog pg. 23) in Basic Black Archival Ink and layered it over the flowers.  I then tied on some Linen Thread into a bow.  Before I adhered all of that onto my card front, I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.


I LOVE how this card turned out, even if it's a simple design!  I hope you like it too and want to make one of your own.  Just wait until you see both the Succulent Garden Suite of products (Occasions Catalog, pp. 20-21) and the Special Reason Bundle (Occasions Catalog, pg. 42).  They are a match made in flower card making heaven!   

You will find all of the Stampin' Up! products used to create my card below; however, you can start ordering the new products on January 4, 2017.  Order the available products you need by placing your order in my Online Store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item.

SNEAK PEEK: Cool Treats & A Mini Blog Hop Day #1!

The stars aligned, and my friends--Patty & Cindee--and I got together for some much-needed girl and crafting time in earlier this month.  And since our crafting date fell right after the preorder for the 2017 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration, Patty had her preorder sent overnight, and we were able to play with the new goodies!

If you haven't heard, the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration products are amazing!  One of my favorite new suites is the Cool Treats Suite (Occasions Catalog, pp. 32-33).  The suite includes stamps, coordinating dies, washi tape, embellishments and gorgeous designer series paper, and you are going to LOVE it!

We took some inspiration from a card we saw on Pinterest and got to work with the Cool Treats Stamp Set and the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.


Using a variety of ink colors, we stamped the popsicles onto a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock and trimmed off a sliver at the bottom at an angle.


Before I layered my card front onto a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Pool Party Cardstock, I added a 1/2" x 6" piece (trimmed after placement) of Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White striped paper from the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.


We all finished off our cards with our sentiment stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink.  We then die cut the sentiment using one of the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits and mounted it onto a scallop oval die cut from the Layering Oval Framelits.  I finished mine off with Real Red ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack (Occasions Catalog, pg. 15).

You may not be able to see it real well, but there's Wink of Stella on each of the popsicles.  My camera didn't do a great job picking it up, but it's there...I promise :)

Since the new products are not yet available for purchase, Stampin' Up! only allows me to share available products with you at this time.  You will find all of the available Stampin' Up! products used to create my card below.  Order what you need by placing your order in my Online Store anytime, or click any of the photos below to go right to that item.
