Floral Frenzy for FM226!

Good afternoon! This morning while surfing Facebook I came across the Friday Mashup layout for the week and had to give it a try! I've seen so many cool things done with inlaid embossing!

If you aren't familiar with inlaid embossing, there's a great video link on the challenge page. Pretty much, it's using those cute little dies, but instead of layering them, you cut them to fit like a puzzle!

I decided to CASE the card on page 77 in the 2015 SU Idea Book and Catalog. Which may have been a bit much for the first attempt, I've been dying to use that set and I thought today was just the day to give it a whirl.

I am in love with this technique because it keeps the bulky layers at bay that you would typically get if they were stacked. Once everything was assembled, I decided to run it through with an embossing folder because I was NOT a fan of the framelet outlines. Now, it's a bit busier so they aren't noticed quite as much. 

Here's the challenge:

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with the Sketch.
  • Create a project with Inlaid Die Cutting. (Video Here
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project with the Sketch and inlaid die cutting.
The Challenge will close on Wednesday Sept. 23rd @ 6pm EST. Be sure to read the guidelines above under "about the FM" if you are new to our Challenge and Welcome. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun Mash' Up!   

All in all, it was fun! I still think I should've done something a tad but simpler. It definitely got me out of my comfort zone. But, go big or go home, right? 

Supplies: (All SU unless otherwise noted)
Paper: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso. 
Stamps: Flower Patch
Supplies: Pearl Accents, 1/8" Certainly Celery ribbon, Flower Fair Framelits, Decorative Dots embossing folder.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a stamptastic 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…
