Time for a Spectacular Celebration

The Birthday Cheer stamp set is a lot of fun to work with.  The images are simple and easy to color.  I paired the set with the Dot to Dot Embossing Folder for a fun background.  The primary color combination makes this card bright and cheery.

So Hoppy Together

It’s my favorite time of year in the stamping world — Sale-a-Bration.  I mentioned it last week and shared a few videos of some of the fun products.  Sale-a-Bration is when we can earn FREE products – stamp sets, designer paper, ribbon, embellishments and even a framelit set.  The So Hoppy Together stamp set has been quite a hit already.  My sister, Tina, and I held a stamp day for our team members and other demonstrator friends.  I knew I had to use this stamp set for one of the cards they would all be making.

So Hoppy Together stamp set, Sale-a-BrationDoesn’t this frog look happy and encouraging?  You also get a sneak peak of the Gingham Gala designer paper, another favorite.  I colored the frog with Granny Apple Stampin’ Blends — both light and dark and his tummy and mouth are colored with Light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  I added Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends to the flies body and wings.

Florentine Filigree Bundle – More Elegant Fun

As I am preparing for a big Demonstrator Event this weekend I wanted to share another Stampin’ Up! video with you.  This video shows you some great techniques using the Florentine Filigree Bundle.  We all like techniques, right.  Brian Pilling will show you the wonderful features of this gorgeous stamp set and thinlit.

I love how the thinlit give the beautiful scallop looked openings to a card front and the stamps line up perfect — super easy with the Stamparatus.
