Celebrate Spring for TGIFC#153

I think my Spring blog break is just about over! It has been super busy around here, hosting workshops, practicing music for Easter, working in the yard, getting ready for OnStage, and more.  I just decided to step back and take a break. Sometimes life can get overwhelming can’t it?

TGIF Card Challenge is March Madness – Anything Goes. A perfect challenge for busy times.

Spring is always a busy time.

TGIFC #153

 I am sharing a card I created using the Double Point card fold. This fold makes such fun cards and it is so super easy. This fold also uses up some of the Designer Series Paper you have been hoarding saving for a very special card.

Spring Card Created by Ginny Harrell using Oh So Eclectic by Stampin' Up! Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate-the-journey.com #stampn' up!

The soft colors of this card make it appropriate for spring birthdays. I love soft colors!

So…OnStage starts tomorrow. What is OnStage? It is a twice yearly event for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. We meet up, get to look at new products, learn new techniques, and spend time with friends from around the world. During the April event we will get to see the NEW Annual Catalog. I can’t wait! Super excited. We also swap cards with friends so we can get ideas for more card making. Guess what kind of card I made for my swaps??? I will share it in a few days.

Contact me if you would like to join in on all this fun. Stampin’ Up and I would love to have you on our team.

Happy Stamping!

Bubbly Birthday Brew

Today I have a Shiny, Bubbly Birthday card to share with you. This is a fun six pack of sodas (or beer) to place on a birthday card. Using the Wood Crate Framelits and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper make it a breeze to create a wooden crate. Love how Stampin’ Up makes it so easy for us to combine products.

Here is my card:

Stamping Tip To Get Shiny Bottles:

Stamp the bottles with the color and then stamp them with VersaMark. Clear Embossing Powder and your heat tool t make them look shiny. (almost like glass).

Cutting out the bottles and caps is a breeze because this set has matching Framelits. Another bonus of purchasing a bundle.

Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper is a free item from Sale-a-bration.  Bubbles & Fizz DSP is very colorful, great for birthdays, children, and all sorts of celebrations. Purchase the Bubble Over Bundle, VersaMark pad, Clear Embossing Powder and the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper will be FREE! You can see the current catalogs on the left side of this blog page.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I hope you enjoy my Shiny, Bubbly Birthday card. Happy stamping!

Sweet Soiree CASE the Catalog

Welcome to CASE the Catalog Saturday!

I usually case the catalog sometime during the weekend. It saves me time and I love the results. Why reinvent the wheel???

Pages 10-13 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog showcase some really yummy cards. The Sweet Soiree Suite works for wedding, anniversary, baby shower, birthday and so much more. I think this set covers just about everything!

My CASE today is from page 10. This is a birthday card and a shaker card. I love shaker cards. If you have trouble with the sequins sticking to your acetate I have 2 solutions for you: lightly rub acetate with an embossing buddy or add a few tiny seed beads to your sequins. The beads help break up the static cling. They also give it a nice little rattle.

Two things I love on the card: the gorgeous ribbon and the flowers from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have time to try a few new techniques this weekend.
