Tis The Season is Back and an Oops!

Good morning! Tis the Season DT is back after our holiday break!

:::The Oops is that this was supposed to go live Jan 7th..... and I just realized it never did! Gah! Technology somehow always has a hand up on me.

Moving on! It's going to be a long one now, to play catchup!

This week, errr...well,  we're starting back with a color challenge and it's a good one! Since I've recently done some Valentine's swap cards, I was already in a pink-y mood when I saw our inspiration.

Isn't it adorable?!

Naturally, since it was pink and had a snow globe, I had to follow suit! 

Here's mine: 

It was so fun to make this card because I used a similar layout recently and it just was a CASE of my own card! No need to re-invent the wheel around here!

Card Streak is still in full swing! Here are my cards from Day 6-10th! 

Day 6 I decided to use the Faux stained glass technique. It's so easy if you've never done it before. All you do is emboss with white on one side of the vellum, then sponge the center in a circle, or covering the whole image if you'd like. Then flip over and embellish. It creates a wonderful subdued look! 

If you follow me on Facebook, you'll see the streak as it goes live!

Day 7 is this nice grunge-looking card. I used the rock n' roll technique with this, and doubled the embossing with gold then black on top to achieve that antique-y look. (pure mistake as I didn't like the gold I originally put on!) Just keep embellishing...

Day 8 is a simple CASE using Circle Circus (ret) and the circles thinlet dies. 

Day 9 is using the emboss resist technique and sponged in different colors!

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…
