June Class Sitting Cards

Today's duo of cards from my June class are a Sitting Pretty card and a Shelf Sitter card. Like the cards I showed yesterday they use brand new products from the new Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 catalog and you can purchase these on my website by clicking on the name in the description. I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!


This first card features images and sentiments from the new Sitting Pretty stamp set and I cut them out using the Pretty Park Framelits dies (buy them together in the Sitting Pretty bundle to save 10%!). The patterned papers are from the Share What You Love Designer Series Papers and the cardstock colors used are Mint Macaron, Grapefruit Grove, and Whisper White. The ink colors used are Crumb Cake, Gray Granite, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz. That Bulldog is just the BEST! 


The second card shown here features images and sentiments from the new Varied Vases stamp set and vases are cut out using the new Vases Builder Punch (Buy them together in the Varied Vases Bundle to save 10%!). The patterned papers used are from the Garden Impressions Designer Series papers and the cardstock colors used are So Saffron, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral and Whisper White. The inks used are Memento Tuxedo Black and Calypso Coral. I colored the flowers in using the In Color 2018-2020 Stamp & Write Markers. It's pretty cool that one of the vases is punched out of one of the patterned papers, the flowers are stamped on another patterned paper and the shelf is made from a 3rd patterned paper. Thinking outside the box gave some pretty special results!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I would love to read your comments and questions!

June Class Wild Cards

We had the best time at my card class this month! 

We made 8 cards featuring some of the new stamp sets, Designer Series Papers, cardstock colors, and coordinating Framelits dies and punches from Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 catalog!

This week I will be sharing these cards with you so that you can recreate them for yourself, or maybe they will inspire you to create something new! 

As always, if you click on the product name in the description, it will the you to my website where you can purchase it. 

Let's get started!



This first card features images from Animal Outing stamp set. The embossing is done using the Layered Leaves embossing folder, 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Papers, Smoky Slate Cardstock, Call Me Clover Cardstock, and Pineapple Punch Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock are the papers used. The image and sentiment were stamped in Basic Gray ink, and they were colored in and highlighted using Pool Party Stampin' Blends duo, Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends duo, and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends duo, and Ivory Stampin' Blends. The frog image on the inside of this card was done using Call Me Clover ink. So cute!




This second card features images from the Sea of Textures stamp set. The embossing is done using the Scattered Sequins embossing folder. The papers used are Tranquil Terxtures Designer Series papers, Crumb Cake Cardstock, Night of Navy Cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, and Fresh Fig Cardstock. The Octopus image was stamped using Fresh Fig ink and the sentiment and coral image inside the card were stamped using Night of Navy ink. A Night of Navy twine bow and Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins in Pearl White and Soft Sea Foam give it that finishing touch.

I hope you will try these fun cards! I would love to see what you create and know what you think of my creations so feel free to comment. Questions are also welcome!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Jar of Love Color Inkspiration Challenge

I found a great new Facebook color challenge group, Color Inkspiration Challenge


For my first challenge #C134 with this group I chose the Jar of Love stamp set. The colors in this challenge were Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Basic Grey. I thought that this stamp set with assorted sizes of mason jars, the goldfish and flowers were perfect for this color combination. Using the coordinating Everyday Jars framelits jars to cut out the images made this a super easy project to put together!

You can order any or all of the products used to create this project and more by clicking on the name in the description above which will take you to my demonstrator website.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Check back soon for more art and inspiration!
