Shadow Box Card

Ooh, what a gloomy day here in England. Perfect day to make cards, which was difficult with a 75-lb dog practically on your lap. EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal) crew were blowing up a few things on our base today, needless to say, Rocky wasn't a fan of the 3-4 loud blasts, and crammed in my room with me. (If you saw my closet, you would to come once it's photo ready!) Anywho...

This weeks challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments was a Shadow Box Technique challenge. Let me just tell you that this was about the easiest card I've ever made, came out beautifully, and will be making them again for sure!!!!

So, for directions on this project, I naturally popped on by Dawn Griffith's blog ( I just noticed the card in the ad above is a Dawn Griffith card!) where she has the most amazing project videos. You can find all the directions and measurements there as well. She is the first place I go for any directions or inspiration for a project.  She makes it so easy!

So, here is my card!

 I used SU's Elements of Style set, Baja Breeze and Wisper white paper, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, Jet Black Staz On,  and Pear Pizazz inks. Some Dazzling diamonds for that little extra sparkle and Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon.

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a scrap-tastic day!!

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…
