Mash Up 35

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been working on this, then had a creative slump. Then today, my Stampin' Success Magazine arrived just in the nick of time! So here is my card! I used Baja Breeze (my new FAVE!) Poppy Parade and So Saffron. I also used a corduroy brad in Crumb Cake and Pear Pizazz for the leaves and a white ribbon. Hope you enjoy!

If you're a SU Demo, you probably saw the "Awash with Flowers" card listed on page 19. So cool! If you're not a demo, I used the 4 petal flower outline (because there is a double-set) and stamped it three times. I cut them out and colored them, then layered them to make a full flower! Added the corduroy brad (because of what I have that looked the best) I also added some dazzling diamonds to make the flower dewy.

Have a scrap-tastic day!


  1. Super cute. I love how you created the flower, and I like the colors you picked. Great card!


  2. Well waiting and playing around with your project payed off!! It came out great.. What a great idea to make a flower. I really like the sparkle. Thanks for joining us at The Mashup!

  3. I love those colors together, and the glitter really shines! Thanks for playing along with us at Friday Mashup!.

  4. I love the flower as the main image, what a great idea. Thanks for hanging out with us at Friday Mashup! And also want to thank you for using the banner on your blog post!

    When do you get to Fairbanks? The aurora has been out there the last few weeks and its been amazing!(we even had the northern lights in my part of Alaska!).

Tranquility in Tulips

Good morning friends!

Do you ever see a stamp set and not fall in love with it until someone else posts something awesome with it?

Not me. Never.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we are fortunate to be able to order select items early when a new catalog is about to be released. I LOVED a lot on the pre-order, but not enough to initially buy, ya know? That Tranquil Tulip set stood out to me, but I held off. Then I saw a video using the tulip set and a Label Me Pretty set, which I wasn't a fan of at all.

I. Fell. In. LOVE.


Fast forward to today when both packages are now here and I am in happy stamping bliss land.

Here's what I came up with:

For Mother's Day there were some beautiful purple tulips in my bouquet- which unfortunately made their way to the trash today. I memorialized them with this card. I also wish the Wood Textures DSP would be all in this one pattern, I just LOVE it. Its gorgeous and reminds me of one of our old barns growing up, which had tulips gr…

Earning Alaska First Purchase!

Twice in one day?!

I know, how lucky are you!! Lol!

This afternoon, I am excited to be taking part in the Earning Alaska 2018 blog hop again!! This is a group of demonstrators who are working together to reach their fullest potential and earn the Stampin' Up 2018 incentive trip, which is an Alaskan cruise through the southeastern islands! Exciting right! It's an area that since moving to Alaska I've never been, with the exception of Juneau for a roller derby trip a few years back.

This hop is chalked full of talented demonstrators! They inspire me daily!!

The theme of this hop is "First Occasions Catalog Purchase!" Which is exciting because have you seen the thing! It was page after page of awesome! I have an obsession with birthday stamps. A girl can never have too many!! That said, the first item on my list was the Party Animal suite! I had to have it all. The best part is that SU and Sizzix did a great job of making sure the existing balloon punch coordinated…

Pleated Easter Fun!

Good morning! 
As you know, I'm party of a monthly swap group with 9 fabulous ladies in San Antonio and this month's theme was Easter or birthday. Since I already have a TON of birthday cards (they're just SO easy to make) and a stamp set that hadn't been touched yet, I chose to do Easter!
It's more spring, than Easter I found, but......that's fine. Growing up in Wisconsin, (and not from a religious background) easter was the gateway to spring! Green grass, a crisp warming of the air, puddles and bike rides. In Alaska, its snow. That's it. Just snow. Even though it has been really mild this winter. :)
Because of all this snow, I've been in the springtime mood. I've been gravitating to a lot of bright colors and flowers! I just can't get enough of them right now!
After a little pinterest and Stampin' Connection (a service only available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) I stumbled upon a pleat card and the rest of my project fell right into…
