A Fun Weekend of Crafting

I had a great time crafting this past August long weekend! I was up until rather late to finish up the last one on Sunday evening. I don't know how long it takes everyone else but it takes me a while sometimes. Especially if most of it is my imagination lol. I tend to get a lot of inspiration (help) from Pinterest. Everything is so Beautiful and there are awesome techniques as well! I also really like the Mojo Monday Sketches, but they are no longer doing them :(  Thank goodness I printed them out over the years because I just find it to be extra help when you can't think of how you want your card to look.
Anyway... The first card I did I used the Coffee Cafe Bundle from the current Catalog. It is quickly becoming one of my new favorites. I know it's silly but my favorite part is that the little cup die cuts the little cups from the DSP, I just think that is awesome. I hope Stampin' Up! does more like that.

This is the first card I did on the weekend and I have intended to use it for my group that will start again in a couple weeks. I saw a card on Pinterest that shaded the cut and it looks awesome so I tried it on my card and love it! Surprisingly I used only the Coffee Cafe Suite with this card, usually I use a ton of other stuff as well.

Now this card was such a blast! It was the first time I used the Embossing Paste that is new in this years Annual Calalog. I can definitely see me having a ton of embossing paste!! I just used a little bit and mixed it with some Dazzling Details and stored it in an empty bad container that I have tones of.
The picture really doesn't do it any justice because you can't really see the glimmer it has but it looks so nice. If you are looking for a little something for your card... this is definite an eye catching way to do it.
This card was the second one I did like this, when I did the first one it just wasn't right.... It needed something different. I knew I wanted to make the flower Berry Burst instead of Bermuda Bay but wasn't sure of the colors to go with it. So to Pinterest I went! I searched Stampin' Up! color combinations and found some that I liked. The one I found is great because it gives you so many options and there are combos for so many colors :D
Here is the link to the one I used!

This is the first one I did and even though I really like the card... I'm not entirely pleased with the color combo I used. I really like the colors in the second card so it is my favorite of the weekend!
The original card from Pinterest that gave me my inspiration for this card can be seen here by clicking this link!
I hope everyone is inspired to create something wonderful and enjoys Stampin' Up! as much as I do!

Paper Pumpkin Promotion

A full price subscription is only $26.95 (including shipping) a month, so getting it for half off is an awesome deal! Not a bad price even if you want to just try it for one month to see how you like it. Subscriptions can be skipped for a month or cancelled anytime if your not entirely pleased with it. 

I love this kit! I have been getting it since it started, 3 years ago I believe.
It is a great way to get some ink colors and stamp sets along with a project of some kind all in one place AND for an incredibly low price for what you receive in the kit!

Sending Smiles Across the Miles

I was so excited when I had a co-worker ask me for a couple cards this week!
One of the cards I had on hand but I need to make one for the second card and I have to admit that I used Pinterest for a little inspiration!
Here are the links that I used for the color combination and the original card that I looked off of to create mine.

As you can see one of my Pearls is blue... the best way I have found to color them is to use Sharpie Markers. The colors are limited but when they work, they look so nice!

July's My Paper Pumpkin

I just love when my monthly kit comes to my door everymonth! It's just like getting a Christmas present every month! 
For those of you just starting out, these are great! You get everything you need to complete the project inside plus you start a stamp & ink collection that you can use again and again! 
For the seasoned stamper out there, it's so much fun seeing what else you can make from the supplies in each kit!
But all in all... it is great fun for everyone!

Coffee Cafe Bundle

I leant something new today in the blogging world thanks to a wonderful fellow 
Demonstrator, Cheryl Algie. Thank you so much!
I could never figure out how eveyone always got a supply list in their posts. I am now apart of a demonstrator facebook group and it was there that I asked how she did it and she
told me she used TAMS... With the help of YouTube as well, I figured it out!
So today I have been a list creating machine! ;)

I just love the new Coffee Cafe Bundle in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!
Today I decided to re-create one of the Stampin' Up! cards from the Suite...
