Tripling the fun for fall!

Hey everyone!

Fall is in FULL swing here in Alaska! With the colors quickly changing, I had it in me to make one a card using one of my favorite techniques. The triple layer card! I'm always skeptical when I start if it will come out, but it NEVER disappoints!

The measurements for this card are as follows:
Card base (A2) 4 1/2 x 5 1/4"
Layer 1 (stamped) 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 2 (solid) 3 1/4 x 4 1/2"
Layer 3 (stamped) 3 x 4 1/4"
Layer 4 (Solid) 2 1/4 x 3 1/2"
Layer 5 (Stamped) 2 x 3 1/4"

Cut all of your cardstock and layer to keep everything organized. Using an removable adhesive, layer and position the white stamping layer together and adhere so that they won't move around while you're stamping. Choose your images and stamp the layers. You'll notice that along the edges where the paper layers, the image won't stamp clearly and thats okay, don't try and fix it! Once all of your stamping is done, carefully pull detach the stamped layers and assemble with the solid pieces. Then, starting at the base, assemble upward. Remember, if you're adding embellishments, such as ribbon, to measure and position before you are completely adhered together.

And thats it! Such a beautiful and relatively easy card to make. I find that this style of card is good for  those sets that have lots of bitty stamps in them, that you might not necessarily know what you're going to do with.

**Note, when tying ribbons, it helps to have tiny fingers to hold the ribbon in place. :)

Supplies: (All SU Unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler.

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…
