A Little Toile Hopping with Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Team!

Blog Hop time!  Blog Hop time!  It's time for another Artisan Blog Hop time!!!  (Yes...I sang that with a little tune when I typed that.  Hee.)  I hope you are ready for another FABULOUS Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog hop!  We are sharing all things Toile Tidings Suite for this hop!  Get ready for a fun & festive good time!  If you just came from Angela's Blog...then you have already seen the fabulous-ness getting started!  

I am so excited to share my projects with you today!  I hope you are ready also because here they are!!!


I am kinda loving all the wreaths this year!  So that's the theme I went with for these projects.  I have a die-cut wreath as well as an embossed wreath.  Let's check out the die-cut wreath a little closer:



Colors: Real Red, Garden Green, Gray Granite, Whisper White, Basic Black
Inks: VeraMark, Garden Green
Cardstock/Papers Gray Granite, Shimmery White, Basic Black, Garden Green, Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Tidings All Around
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, All-Around Wreath Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots, Linen Thread, White Stampin' Emboss Powder

I totally love all the subtle details here.  First...I die-cut two wreaths.  Then I stamped a few of the dotted image around the top layered wreath.  I also embossed the pieces with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Adhered the two wreaths together, used some Toile Tidings Glitter Enamel Dots as some berries and made a fun and fluffy Linen Thread bow for the top.  


(PS...I love the stitched frame also.  Swoon!  😍)


Next up...I really love this embossed wreath also...


Colors: Real Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold
Inks: VeraMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Basic Black, Garden Green, Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Tidings All Around
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Heat Tool
Accessories: Linen Thread, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, Real Red 1" Ruched Ribbon

I embossed it with gold and it really shines!  And can we talk about that ruffled ribbon?!  SWOON!  It is just the Real Red 1" Ruched Ribbon that I pleated behind the cardstock to give it that dynamic look.


I LOVE LOVE it!!!  Another fun detail to this card is that after I embossed the wreath, I actually ran it through the Subtle Embossing Folder as well.  That gives you that gorgeous, almost canvas-like, look...


I hope you enjoy these projects!!  And I hope you are so excited to keep going!  Because AurΓ©lie has some fabulous projects to share with you next!!!

Inspired Perfectly Plaid Christmas...

You know when you see a card that you love and you just have to make one yourself.  Well...that happened to me when I saw a card made my Susan Wong.  See her card HERE.  And then this is the card I made:


Colors: Pool Party, Night of Navy, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White, Gold
Inks: Pool Party, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Vellum, Basic Black, Gold Foil, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper
Stamps: A Wish for Everything
Tools: Word Wishes Dies, Heat Tool, Pine Tree Punch, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Metallic Pearls, Linen Thread, White Stampin' Emboss Powder
 
I love this plaid stuff all toned down with the white.  I think it makes the tree really pop.  Then I love the subtle trees behind it.  And watercoloring...yes please!  πŸ˜€



One last look...


I hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Where do you find your inspiration for your creations?!

Christmas Rose Made Everyday Rose...

The Christmastime Is Here Suite from Stampin' Up! is a gorgeous suite of products!  The large rose image that comes in the Christmas Rose Stamp Set is a showstopper!  I used it on this card to make a year-round card and I am kinda in love:



Colors: Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Gold, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Thick Whisper White, Basic Black, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Christmas Rose
Tools: Roses Dies, Corrugated Embossing Folder
Accessories: Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, White Stampin' Emboss Powder

Just changing the colors and adding a sentiment that you can use for any occasion make this a great card to give all year long! 

And look at how gorgeous this rose is:


I just watercolored that rose...because I can't stop watercoloring it.  Hee.  It is kinda my favorite.  PS...I just cut the big rose image out with the coordinating Roses Dies!!!  Thank you, Stampin' Up!  😍  Then I kept the rest of the card really simple because I just love how dynamic that rose image is. 



One last time...here is the whole card...


I hope you enjoy!  Please just let me know how I can help you with any of your papercrafting needs!  I would love to help you get any of the Christmastime Is Here Suite that you need!

Baker's Box Meets Mini Curvy Keepsakes...and It's Rawrsome!!!

Ready to be WOW'ed?!  πŸ˜€   Well then hang in with me here for just a second.  I am sharing another one of the make and takes from the retreats that I just finished!  First, look at how cute this Baker's Box is! 




Colors: Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, Whisper White
Inks: Pool Party, Pineapple Punch, Memento Black
Cardstock/Papers Shimmery White, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Dinoroar Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Dino Days
Tools: Stitched Shapes Dies, Dino Dies, Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Die, Mosaic Embossing Folder, 1 1/2" Circle Punch, 2 1/4" Circle Punch
Accessories: Baker's Boxes, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon

I especially love the Mosaic embossed pieces on the side!  That embossing folder goes FABULOUSLY with this suite!!!


Do you agree?!  Hee.  But do you want to see the COOLEST part of this?!  Well good because I am really excited to show you!  Look at this box opened up...


FOUR MINI CURVY KEEPSAKE BOXES FIT IN THIS BAKER'S BOX!!!  Isn't that JUST SO much fun?!!?  Say WHAT?!  Yes...it is true!  And I love it!  😁😁😁


This whole project is really even quite quick to put together.   The Baker's Box just has to be folded together.  The Mini Curvy Keepsake Boxes go together fast.  (You don't even need any adhesive to put them together!  Just cut out and fold together!)  Then you just decorate however you want and you have the cutest gift to give away! 

I want to point out one little detail.  I added this circle to the top of the box for two reasons.  1.) It covers up the adhesive you used to add the focal point to the front of the box.  2.) It is handy to write a little message to the receiver! 


If you don't have the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Die yet...you kinda need it now, huh?!  Hee.  It's just too cute! 


Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know how I can help you!  And how I can help you get these fun products into your hands!  πŸ’—

Need Some Color?! Sponge It!!!

I love this little gift bag because it is using one of my very favorite things...the Copper Dotted Treat Bags that are in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog!  If you have followed me for a bit...you have noticed that I use these a lot.  πŸ˜€  This one though, I didn't want it to be white.  I needed a pop of color!  So I got out my trusty Sponge Brayer and added some color!  😁


Colors: Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, Whisper White, Copper
Inks: Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, VersaMark, BLENDS:  Real Red Dark, Old Olive Light & Dark
Cardstock/Papers Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black, Copper Foil Sheet
Stamps: Brightly Gleaming
Tools: Stitched Nested Labels Dies, 1 3/4" Circle
Accessories: Tags & More Accessory Kit, Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim, Copper Dotted Treat Bags

What do you think?!  Would you add color or keep it white!? 


Have you noticed that there are COPPER Library Clips in the catalog?!  They are in the Tags & More Accessory Kit.  I LOVE this kit with all its fun bits and pieces to use on all sorts of projects!  And again...Copper. Library. Clips.  😍


And how about this holly stamp from the Brightly Gleaming Stamp Set?  It could be my favorite holiday stamp of this season.  Hee.  I love the bold/almost whimsical style of it.  Swoon!


And once again...just look at this gorgeous color...


I just used this tool to add it...


Goes on so pretty!  Kinda love it! 

Let me know if you have any questions!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Hope you enjoy!

Bunches of Thanks With Come To Gather...

Need to make a whole batch of Thank You cards for fall?!  Well look no further than the Come to Gather Suite!  The Come to Gather Designer Series Paper in this suite makes card making a breeze.  Look at how well these three patterns work!  Same layout, same card, and all with one pack of paper!!!  Even using just these three patterns of paper, you can get 72 cards from one pack...with a half a pack of paper left to use on other projects!  (Like the gift pouch I shared HERE!)  


Colors: Petal Pink, Gray Granite, Pool Party, Whisper White
Inks: Petal Pink, Gray Granite
Cardstock/Papers Gray Granite, Shimmery Whisper White, Whisper White, Pool Party, Come to Gather Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Gather Together
Tools: Gathered Leaves Dies, Stitched Nested Labels Dies
Accessories: Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack, Whisper White Baker's Twine

So what do you think?  Which one is your favorite?!  I couldn't really pick a "for sure" favorite, but maybe it would be this wood grain one...


I sure do love it.  Also...fun note...I watercolored the pumpkins with Petal Pink!!!  I LOVE the subtle color it gives to the pumpkin.


Watercoloring was so quick and easy too.  I just smooshed my ink pads together before opening.  Open partway, and then use an Aqua Painter to get some of the ink on the brush trip and color away.  So quick and easy! 


Then die-cut and add to your card!  This card was one of the make and takes at my latest stamping retreats.  I loved how people got to make a variety of cards, based on what pattern of paper they got in their kit! 



Would love to hear what you think!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!!!

Christmastime Is Here With An Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

I can't wait! Christmas is coming early this year!!!!  Gues what you can order, starting TODAY?!  The FABULOUS Limited Edition Christmastime Is Here Suite!!  It is HERE!  It is HERE!!!  I hope you're reading to make this holiday season MAGICAL!  This is an exclusive, limited-time collection!  And it is FILLED with festive floral coordination!!!  You will have everything you need to share love, joy, and creativity this holiday season AND BEYOND!!!! 

 Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team has so much fun to share today with another Blog Hop!  We did one early in the month too that you can still go back and check out!  (I will link to that at the bottom of this post...so stay tuned!  :-) ) Now it is time to get ready for some NEW & FESTIVE fun!!!  If you just came from Angela's Blog...you've already seen some gorgeous projects!!!  I am so excited to share what I created with you now!!!




I obviously brought in some new colors to use with this suite of products for these projects.  (I used traditional colors in the fist Blog Hop we did, so wanted to do something a little different for this one.  πŸ˜€)  I also brought in another greeting stamp set, the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set, to make some projects that would be gorgeous to give all year long!  

Want to see and hear a little more details about these projects?!  Well let's get going!  First up, is a fun card that would totally brighten anyone's day!  I LOVE this color combo!!!




Colors: Purple Posy, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Gold
Inks: Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Golden Glitz Delicata Gold, VersaMark, Purple Posy Dark Blends Marker
Cardstock/Papers Purple Posy, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Christmas Rose, Strong & Beautiful
Tools: Subtle Embossing Folder, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool
Accessories: Linen Thread, Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder

For this card, I just embossed the FABULOUS large floral image in the corner of a 4" x 4" piece of cardstock.  Then did some watercoloring!  I colored with Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, and then I used the Purple Posy Dark Blends Marker to color the little berries.


Then I splattered the whole cardstock piece with the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink.  😍  (The easiest way to do this is to use an Aqua Painter.  I just put a little of the re-inker on a clear block, pick some up with an Aqua Painter, then flick the brush tip on the lid to splatter on my project.  Squeeze a little more water into the brush tip if it's not splattering like you like.)

I LOVE this greeting!!!!  


Next up is a more traditional Christmas card.  



Colors: Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Whisper White, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Gold
Inks: Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Golden Glitz Delicata, VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Basic Black, Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Christmas Rose
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Roses Dies, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool
Accessories: Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon, White Stampin' Emboss Powder

I LOVE this rose stamp!  It's so detailed!  Look how gorgeous those are!  I just stamped a few roses in the corners, added some greenery and a sentiment!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE that shimmery gold ribbon!!!


It is a stunner for sure!!!!  I also used one of the dies from the suite to add a Vellum label under the greeting.  And then that FABULOUS lattice die just makes me SOOOOO happy!  It is also from the die set!!!

I did some more watercoloring for this next card...this time with a watercolor wash...



Colors: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold
Inks: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, Golden Glitz Delicata, VersaMark, Flirty Flamingo LIGHT Blends Marker
Cardstock/Papers Petal Pink, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Christmas Rose
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Roses Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool
Accessories: Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon, White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Whisper White Baker's Twine

I embossed the big flower twice on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Then I used Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo to do a watercolor wash over it.  I pretty much am in love with how it came out.  😍  Look at that vibrant pink.  I am swooning...


Then all I really added was just an embossed greeting (I just cut part of one of the greetings from the suite) to add as a little banner and added a die cut and ribbon for a little flair.


And YES!  I colored some White Baker's Twine with a Blends Marker to have some colored twine.  I used the Light Flirty Flamingo one.  

Last...I have a fun box for you!!!  Boxes are such a fun way to share some stamping love with people!  Who would even care what was in the box when it looks this gorgeous!  Hee. 


Colors: Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Purple Posy, Whisper White, Basic Black, Gold
Inks: Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Soft Suede, Golden Glitz Delicata, Purple Posy Light Blends Marker

Stamps: Christmas Rose, Strong & Beautiful
Tools: Stitched Rectangle Dies, Roses Dies, Aqua Painter, Heat Tool
Accessories: Gold Glitter Enamel Dots, Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder, White Stampin' Emboss Powder


And all I did for this was use that big dynamic floral image, watercolored it, added it to a cardstock rectangle that I sponged with the a stencil I made (Click HERE to see the last blog hop where I showed you how I did this!) and added it to the box I made from Thick Whisper White cardstock.
