Celebrating You Perennial Birthday Card

Perennial Birthday 1

Hello friends! I’m in the midst of an unexpected two weeks off at my day job, so that means I’ve been spending more time in the craft room – and I’m loving it! To be honest though, I’ve needed a bit of a mental break and am getting some much needed rest and time to really just do nothing. It’s been good for me and a much needed break for sure.

But let’s get on with today’s card because I am in LOVE! It features the new Perennial Birthdays Stamp Set from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue. I can already tell that this set is going to get a lot of use; not just for birthday cards, but I foresee all sorts of occasions being used with this fun floral set.

I stamped this card using the masking technique and did some watercoloring with our Aqua Painters. I used a Berry Burst for the card based, and then Berry Burst, Pool Party, and Cucumber Crush Ink for the stamped images. If you don’t happen to have Cucumber Crush Ink, Wild Wasabi is an excellent substitute!

It really turned out lovely, don’t you think?

Here is a list of products used for today’s card:

 

New Beginnings | GDP123

Hello Friends!

I decided to enter the Global Design Project Challenge #123 at the last minute, and I’m super excited to show you what I came up with! I’ve done the challenge before, but I admit, it’s been a while!

New Beginnings GDP123 - 1

This challenge (#GDP123) is all about new beginnings, and I think this is something we can all relate to. Whether it’s a new job, you’re a new Stampin’ Up! Demo (or want to be!), retirement, wedding…the list can go on! We’ve all started anew at one point or other, so what a perfect theme!

GDPD123

For this particular card, I had two things in mind; retirement and/or new job. I think it suits either occasion as its bright, cheery, and really shows excitement!

The layout of the card is cased from the lovely Lauren Alarid, who is a fellow demonstrator and a 2018 Artisan Design Team Member. Her cards are always so lovely, but the layout in which this one is based, is probably one of my faves!

You’ll notice that I used a couple of different stamp sets for this card; the new Picture Perfect Stamp Set from the new Occasions Catalogue, as well as the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue.

Colours used are Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Peekaboo Peach. Also used is the beautiful Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which created the beautiful background on this card.

New Beginnings GDP123 - 2

Quick and Simple Valentine’s Day Treat Holder w/VIDEO

I have a real treat for you today!

(See what I did there?)

But first, let me tell you some EXCITING news!

I am officially a YouTuber! I am so excited about creating my own YouTube channel and it just so happens that I have published my first official YouTube video with today’s project!

You can SUBSCRIBE HERE!

So onto today’s project, which is this really pretty Valentine’s Day Treat Holder!

Valentine's Day Treat Holder.jpg

Seriously, how cute is this?!

And it’s not just for treats either! You can fit gift cards, two tea bags, fruit snacks, and more. It’s also perfect for ANY occasion.

For this treat holder, I used our new Sure Do Love You Bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue (which also got me a FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set since the bundle is just over $60.00)!

The Sure Do Love You Bundle is part of the Painted with Love Product Suite which includes the gorgeous Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper that I used for the treat holder. I think the paper is my favourite product in the suite because it’s SO beautiful and so versatile (think Valentines, wedding, birthdays, etc.).

The entire suite pairs beautifully with the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder that I used for the banner on the treat holder too!

GSF Blog Hop – Truly Tailored Card for Dad

Hi Friends! I hope you’re having an amazing week so far! I’ve been busy this week; both at work and at play, but I am happy to bring you a card featuring the new Truly Tailored Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue that went live on January 3rd!

Seriously, have you seen the catalogue yet? It has so many amazing new items, I can hardly handle it! If you’re joining me from the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, thank you for stopping by! I know you’ve already seen some amazing projects, so thanks for sticking around!

If you’re here just because you enjoy my blog (thanks a million!), be sure to check out the other amazing projects by checking out the list below!

From the moment I opened the Occasions Catalogue, the True Gentlemen Suite instantly caught my eye. I’m not sure if was the colours (my fave colours are blue/turquoise), or if it’s because masculine cards are what I struggle with most, but this set really has it all for me. Plus, I thought that this suite would make the masculine cards come a bit easier for me.

And let me tell you, this suite has helped so much!

Lookin' Sharp Dad Birthday Card - GSP Blog - JAN2018

I decided to go with something a bit more simple this time, but this suite really allows you to get creative with the sentiments and embellishments. The colour, sentiments; everything about this set just speaks to me and has so much to offer.

I think aside from the Truly Tailored Stamp Set itself, the True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper may be one of my most favourite Designer Series Paper that Stampin’ Up! has ever had. I say this because of it’s level of details, it’s classiness, and I think it can appeal to both kids and adults alike. Just think of the gift packaging you can create with it too!

Truly Tailored Dad Card

If you like this suite as much as I do, but are not too sure what to get, I’ve put together this little bundle for you to give you a hand. It’s an easy way to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
