Two For the Price of One – Paper Players 428

Hello Friends. I have two fun cards to share with you today. Same card in two totally different color schemes.

A few weeks ago, I taught a Beginning Stamping class and we created this lovely card. I think blue and yellow combinations are some of my favorite. This card is so bright and cheery and makes me long for spring.

Then I saw the Paper Players #428 color challenge:

Here is the same card but different colors. I LOVE the difference and the colors just pop on this card.

Changed the sentiment…

Which one is your favorite, Balmy Blue & Daffodil Delight or Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate? Inquiring minds want to know.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!

Friendship Card in Gorgeous Grape

I am continuing to work on my goal to have cards ready to send friends that need a little encouragement or a sweet thinking of you message.

Today I am using a set from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up!®Annual Catalog. I didn’t purchase this set for a long time, but I kept seeing so many pretty cards I had to give in and buy it. I’m so glad I did. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

The bold Gorgeous Grape ink and cardstock are what make this card pop.

Look at the beautiful flower. It is so pretty. Adding the vellum leaves creates texture without overwhelming the sweet flower.

Thinlits and punches made this card a snap. It was easy to make several in a short amount of time. You could easily change the sentiment on this card and make it birthday or wedding. Love when that happens!

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Humming Along for Freshly Made Sketches

Hello Stamping friends. Time is flying by as we get ready for Christmas. Have you finished your Christmas cards? I still have a  few to complete.  I am sure they will get done, but I may be working up to the last day!

Today my post is not a Christmas card day. I created a thinking of you card for Freshly Made Sketches using a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. Did you know Stampin’ UP! ® Demonstrators get to purchase from New Catalogs early? One more reason to become a demonstrator!

Here is the sketch FMS#366:

Here is  my Humming Along card:

This hummingbird was so much fun to color using Stampin’ Blends. I experimented with mixing some colors to get the shades I wanted. Of course, this bird is covered with Wink of Stella. It is hard to see the shine in a picture….

Confession time, this is the first time I had the nerve to cut the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper. I was so afraid I would mess it up. It was simple to cut and now I have more pieces to work with! This paper is beautiful!

The New 2019 Occasions Catalog is coming out soon.

You will be able to shop starting in January. If you don’t have a demonstrator you shop with and would like a catalog leave me a message and I will be glad to put one in the mail for you.

Thanks for stopping by today. Check back tomorrow for a blog hop with tons of inspiration for Thank You cards.

I always enjoy hearing from you! Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.

Happy Stamping!
