Hello Blogging World!

I can’t believe it!  I finally joined the blogging world.  I’ve wanted to start a blog for the past couple of years but have been too intimidated to give it a try.  I decided to overcome my intimidation and step outside my comfort zone, so here I am!   My purpose for this blog is to share paper crafting inspiration using Stampin’ Up!’s awesome products.  I hope you enjoy it!

So, just last  month I attended Stampin’ Up!’s annual convention and one of my many favorite things about convention is swapping!  I love the sharing of ideas with fellow demonstrators.  One of my favorite swaps I received this year was this super cute card from Amy O’Neill.

She used the stamp set Topsy-Turvey Celebration, which I currently don’t own (I’ll have to remedy that soon).   But, I especially love this template and just had to use it.  So, when I was planning a special card for my sister’s 50th birthday,  I decided to give the template a try.  I ended up turning the template sideways for my card to work out.  Here is what I came up with.

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps:  Curly Cute, I Am (special convention stamp set)
  • Ink:  Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango
  • Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, Whisper White, International Bazaar dsp
  • Big Shot Dies:  Chevron textured impressions folder, Labels framelits, Apothecary Accents framelits, Typeset Alphabet, Bitty Banners framelits
  • Accessories:  Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine, Festive Paper Piercing Pack

And, I have one more card to share with you using this template.  This is a card I designed for my Christmas Card Club this month.

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps:  Open Sleigh
  • Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler Core’dinations card stock, Early Espresso, Candlelight Christmas dsp
  • Big Shot dies:  Lacy Brocade textured impressions folder, Labels Collection framelits, Apothecary Accents framelits, Bitty Banners framelits
  • Accessories:  Brushed Bronze desginer buttons, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Festive Paper Piercing Pack

Happy Stamping!
