Most Awesome Dad

I love a good masculine stamp set and when there is coordinating Designer Series Paper, it's even better!  We are down to the final days of Sale-a-Bration and this is your last chance to earn this awesome Trusty Tool Box DSP for FREE with a qualifying purchase!  

Today's card was inspired by the latest Global Design Project Sketch Challenge.  I love the tool box from the Trusty Tools Dies, especially when it's embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder.  It reminds me of my grandpa's old tool box!

I filled the tool box with several fussy cut tools from the Trusty Toolbox DSP and 
added the saw blade to go along with the upper part of the sketch.  Sentiments from Trusty Tools coupled the card, along with a few Rustic Metallic Dots.
I have a stash of fussy cut tools tucked away for future projects and maybe even a few extra packs of this's my favorite!

Happy Stamping!

Excellent Eggs

Can you believe that it's almost the end of February?  After January being the longest month in history, this month has sped by!  We're beginning to see signs of spring here, which means it's time to start working some springtime cards!
My assignment this month for the Artisan Design Team was to create to projects using the Excellent Eggs Bundle.  I paired this sweet bundle up with the Inked Botanicals DSP for some pretty springtime cards!

The Excellent Eggs dies are so much fun and the eggs are so pretty that they can pretty much stand alone! I cut out three eggs in different patterns of paper and added a fourth egg that has a bit more detail. I love the sunny Crushed Curry can just feel the warmth!  I dressed the eggs up with a Lost Lagoon Bordered Ribbon and a few Tinsel Gems Three-Pack embellishments. A simple fussy cut Happy Easter Sentiment completed the card.

I love the Hello Spring Sentiment from the Excellent Eggs stamp set and focused on just that stamp for my next card.  I mixed a few different patterns, using a Crushed Curry Pattern again to give the card a sunny feel.  A simple Linen Thread bow and a few more Tinsel Gems finished things off!
This was a fun set to work with!  Be sure to see what the rest of our team created by checking out the Stampin' Up! Facebook or will love all of the creative inspiration!

Softly Stippled Inspiration

Valentine's Day may be behind us, but that doesn't mean we can't keep sharing love all year long!  This weeks Hand Stamped Sentiments Inspiration Challenge is full of images to help continue to spread a little love!

I was inspired by the beautiful roses.  I sat down with the rose pattern of the Softly Stippled DSP and a few of my favorite Stampin' Blends.  Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Bubble Bath, along with Granny Apple Green, made for a colorful display of roses.  I fussy cut each image out and popped them up with Dimensionals on another piece of DSP.

I heat embossed a Charming Sentiments sentiment in white on Pebbled Path to go along with the card base.  A few Melon Mambo Shiny Sequins added just the right amount of sparkle and shine to the card.

What will you be inspired to create?  Be sure to share your creation with us!

Simply Ready for Zinnias

We're back with another Monday Montage Blog Hop!  Enjoy the full circle of incredible creations from all of our talented stampers!

My spring flower seeds all arrived this week and I can not wait to get them started and in the ground!  I can't wait to see all of the beautiful zinnias I have this year!

While I wait for warmer weather, I will enjoy the beauty of the Flowering Zinnias Suite Collection. (This beautiful collection will be available in the Online Exclusives beginning March 5th!) The stamped images and beautiful colors in the DSP will make you feel like you are walking though the most amazing flower farm!

I needed a little color therapy this weekend and these beautiful blooms did not disappoint.  I colored the flowers in shades of Calypso Coral and Petal Pink with Mossy Meadow and Old Olive leaves.  Pool Party filled in the rest of the space, making the flowers look like they are floating in a pool of water.  A Petal Pink card base with the leafy pattern of DSP peeking out from behind the flowers was a little out of my crafting comfort zone, but I love how it all worked together.  And this sentiment is so that you can send that will last forever!

Next up is a bright little bouquet of flowers for the sweetest birthday wish! It was so much fun mixing these patterns of DSP in with the Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight zinnia's. 
If you have been loving the fun variety of Adhesive-Backed Sequins Stampin' Up! has had lately, you're going to have another to add to your collection!  These Shiny Sequins are amazing!  Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lolly, Mellon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist are the perfect colors of summer!

Keep on hopping and see what Cathy has to share with us!

Happy Stamping!

The Flip-Side of Sunny Days

Happy Friday stampers and welcome to this weeksTGIF Challenges Product Spotlight Challenge!  This week we are sharing some of our Sale-A-Bration products and I promise you will love them all!

I love the Sunny Days DSP!  Both sides of this Designer Series Paper is so seriously cute!  So cute that I had to make TWO cards using the flip side of nearly all of the designs!

For the first card, I went with the designs filled with mostly Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce. The cherry pattern is my favorite, so that was placed front and center!  I topped the Heartfelt Hellos sentiment off with a sweet little cherry Simply Sparkling dies and wrapped it all up with my favorite Black & White Gingham Ribbon. I added a little extra "friend" sentiment from the Best Family Ever stamp set.

On the flip side of all of the Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce are Crushed Curry, Petal Pink and Pool Party...with a little more Poppy Parade mixed in. The adorable Adhesive-Backed Hearts & Flowers were the perfect little embellishments for this card!
There are just a couple weeks left to earn the Sale-A-Bration items for FREE with a qualifying purchase!  Don't miss out on all of the fun this time around!

Happy Stamping!
