ICS Blog Hop: Freezin' Fun

 


I am so glad you could join is on the November Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are happy to be sharing some fun projects with you. Hopefully, we can inspire you and get you in your craft rooms to stamp something new!

 November's theme is Christmas is Coming! I chose to use Freezin' Fun for an exciting technique we learned this past weekend at OnStage@Home! OnStage@Home is the format Stampin' Up! used to bring us together for what we normally did in person each November. It was an exciting time, we saw new product and even had a chance to order some of it! They had $1,000,000 demonstrators presentations creating with the new stamp sets they each helped create! We also got some training in and got to hear from the company leadership on various topics, as well as, a Stamp Along time! It was a fun event and I am so thankful Stampin' Up! chose to use this platform, rather than cancel the event all together! 

Anyway, back to the technique, and my card. I had not really used this set yet, and this forced me to start working with it. I will be using it some more for sure! It has so many cute little guys in it! Just look at them, and they have matching dies!!

Here is my creation using a new (to me) shaker card technique. Can you see that the entire card front is the shaker?!  

Here is a closer look:

I used a paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP). The DSP is supposed to represent stucco, or wall texture, or something. But, I thought it made a perfect snow scene background with all the swirls in the white paste! I stamped trees directly onto the DSP. Once colored, I placed the background piece into a clear envelope, added some snowflake sequins and tiny blue dots, and sealed it. I used Tear & Tape to secure it, before adding it to my card front. To finish it off, I added my cute little snow creatures!  

Don't forget the inside, and your envelope!

I hope you love this card and technique as much as I do! I will be using both again!

The very talented Terri is up next, leave me a comment, and then join me as I check out what masterpiece she has for us!! Don't forget to keep hopping to see all the fabulous projects!

Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

IDEAS Blog Hop: Festive Corners

 


It's a great day to craft!! And the IDEAS team has some fun projects to share with to get you inspired! Our theme for November is Family Celebrations. This is a broad theme and could include; birthday,
holiday's like Christmas or New Year, or new baby, or ??

This month's tutorial contains over 25 amazing ideas created by 11 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world! We can help you get your craft on!!
Here is a sneak peek at the some of the projects in our November IDEAS Tutorial Bundle.


I chose to use the Festive Corners stamp set. It includes images for several holidays, and I love that some of the sentiments go around a corner, and some go up and down. Just makes it fun to be able to change things up!

While my actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the bundle, I have another card made using this stamp set to show you. Consider it a bonus project!

Hint: I used the Christmas sentiments in my bundle projects, but really think it could be used for birthday, Christmas, New Years, or just to let someone know how special they are!

Each tutorial designer features at least one card and one 3D project, some include multiple projects.

PPP Blog Hop: Joy to the World

 


Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the October Paper Pumpkin Kit: Joy to the World

 

This month's kit made 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. Here are the cards as designed:



If you follow me at all, you know I love to make boxes out of the Paper Pumpkin card bases. This month's worked perfectly! So I had to do it!! 


Here is my alternate project, a cute little box! I used the included stamps for the flowers, as the diecut flowers were too large for the box. I colored them with our Stampin' Blends. I think they look great! I used other elements of the kit, like the "sweater" embossed paper, the beautiful gold "love" and the cherry cobbler twine.  I added the Sea Foam Green paper for the sentiment, and the cobbler colored jewels. 




I lined the inside with some of the envelope, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. 


Glad you could join us, and hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create.  Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Deb's blog to see what fun she has created to share with you!

 

It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!!

ICS Blog Hop: Playful Pets Designer Series Paper

 

Hello, and welcome to the October Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! We are glad you are hopping with us. Grab a cuppa', sit back and relax! We have a lot of projects to show off the beautiful Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper(DSP)! From the gorgeous Forever Greenery to the spooky, but elegant Magic in the Night to the oh, so cute, Playful Pets, Stampin' Up! has just the right DSP for the project you have in mind. 


Hopefully, we can inspire you and you can take advantage of the DSP sale going on right now!!


I love my pups! I have 4 of them, all shapes and colors, ranging from 4 lbs to 15 lbs, and all have my heart! Here is a picture of the 4 of them waiting for vegetables, as I was making a salad: 



Can you see why they stole my heart?! So, it shouldn't come as a surprise that I chose Playful Pets for the DSP I wanted to showcase: 


I used our Notecards and Envelopes. I love having these on hand to make up quickly. I let the DSP do all the work. Not only is the background DSP, but all the pups images were cut out of the DSP, as well. The sentiments all came from Itty Bitty Greetings. 






I also made a cute holder to put them in, so they would make a great gift for the puppy lover in your life!



If you like what you see, or have any questions, leave me a comment, and then follow the hop to see what the others have been inspired to share with you!! The most creative Cynthia is up next, let's go see what DSP she chose and what project she has for us!!
