Very Vintage Valentine for TSOT #47

Ahh, the joys of my child being back to school! Its a peaceful, quiet, crafty cleaning day! I've done more crafting than cleaning though! I love my child, but after two weeks, its time for him to be back. I don't start my classes until the 19th, what's a gal to do? CRAFT!

So, I stopped by Try Stampin' on Tuesday and found a great sketch to play along with!

Wanting to be girly and fun, in time for Valentines, I came up with this:
Its hard to see the VV seam binding running across the card unless you click on it. :(

Don't you love the 'You are Loved' set from Stampin' up? I was eyeballing it a while back then went to the SU Regional workshop in Anchorage where we used it....I HAD to have it after.  I love coloring this set, always comes out with amazing results.

Supplies: (SU unless otherwise noted)
You are Loved stamp set
Very Vanilla seam binding
Soft Suede card stock
Wild Wasabi ink
More Mustard Ink
Marina Mist ink
Rose Red ink
Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB 2012)
Designer Label punch
1 3/4x 7/8 oval punch
Tea Stain Vintage ink spot (found in distressing kit)
Dazzling diamonds glitter
Two-way glue pen

Have a stamp-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…
