Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts

Today I have a sweet coloured card for you using one of the retiring 2018 Occasions Catalogue stamp sets called Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts.

I coloured this one with Watercolour pencils, including the Lemon Lime Twist one which came inside the Lots of Happy Card Kit. I'm going to be super sad to see to see the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon go. It's one of my favourites and is great for baby cards too.

Stampin' Up! Southern Serenade Vintage Birthday Card

Welcome to April friends, and blessed Easter Wishes to you and your family.

 

What's happening in Stampin' Up! in April?

Next weekend, demonstrators around the globe will be gathering at OnStage events for the unveiling of the 2018/19 Annual Catalogue, which will be available for customers during May for a June 1st start (to register your interest in receiving a catalogue when they become available, go here). I will be heading to Sydney with lots of my team which will be lots of fun and excitement. This year will be even more fun, as it's Stampin' Up!'s 30th Anniversary and we are celebrating like it's 1988.

I'll be able to tell you all about the OnStage event, and give you some sneak peeks from Tuesday April 10th.

To catch some bits and pieces of the fun that I can show earlier, make sure you are following me on Facebook and Instagram.

I can't wait to bring you the fun and excitement of OnStage!

Being the start of the month, we also have a new monthly hostess code to use with online orders. Pop this code in when your are prompted in your order, and you will qualify for a small free gift mid May.

Today's Card

Today I have a vintage style birthday card for you, using one of the lovely stamp sets from the Occasions Catalogue called Southern Serenade. Sometimes we miss these stand alone stamp sets while we focus on bundles, but this stamp set is too pretty to miss. I particularly like its vintage style and the beautiful fine lace image.

Southern Serenade

I have used Shimmery White to stamp on, and Crumb Cake for the stamping of the lace images. I have stamped the floral image in Basic Black Archival and coloured with watercolour pencils.

This stamp set comes with some lovely accompanying images of the lace and smaller floral images, as well as three very versatile sentiments. It's a great one to add to your collection of stamps and is available in clear mount and wood (see links below). The 'Happy Birthday' and 'Thank You' greeting also fit nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch.

I have used one of the newly available products from the second release of the Saleabration products. It is called Blossoming Basket bundle, and is a combination of a beautiful floral basket line art stamp set with a coordinating basket weave embossing folder. This is a level 2 Saleabration gift which means this bundle can be redeemed for free with a $180 order in my online store or by phone or email. There are also lots of other gifts that can be chosen for a $90 order, so just ask if you would like a Saleabration brochure.

Blossoming Basket

I used the Stampin Blends in Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry to colour the image (after stamping with Memento Black). My cardstock colours are Crumb Cake, Powder Pink and Shimmery White.

BASKET sab

My greeting is from At Home With You, as I wanted a very small greeting and I love the font in this set. I have used coordinating Powder Pink ribbon as well.  I love how the ribbon coordinates in so well with the Stampin' Blends colours as well.

3 ways with Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Stamp Set

Some bundles just jump right out of the page at me when I open a new catalogue, and they are usually the nature style stamp sets for me. Birds, flowers, leaves etc. Stampin' Up!'s new Petal Palette stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue ticked all the boxes for me. It has a coordinating set of Thinlits called Petals and More Thinlit Dies, and a lovely set 0f 2 border embellishment folders called Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. Here are 3 ways I have used these lovely products. This is just the tip of the iceberg. You will be seeing LOTS more of this product suite from me.

For my first card I have coloured the roses in Cherry Cobbler light and dark Stampin' Blends, with Old Olive light and dark Stampin' Blends on the leaves. I also used the Lots of Labels Framelits.

I added some gentle shimmer with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

For my second card, I coloured in Calypso Coral light and dark Stampin Blends, with Old Olive light and dark for the leaves. I also used one on the embossing folders on the crumb cake layer.

I did a little bit of background stamping on the label shape that was left over from the last card. and added a greeting from the set. That lovely label die cut is included in the Thinlits.  I also added some Wink of Stella to this card.

For my third card (which I think is my favourite), I have used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive light and dark Stampin Blends, but haven't used the glitter this time. I used the other embossing folder but didn't take it all the way across the card. I also added in some background stamping at the top of the card (that background stamp included in the set is so versatile).

The greeting or this card came from a different set (it was just the sentiment I needed for this card, for someone who is going through an extremely difficult time). It's from Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Flying Home Stamp Set with Stampin' Blends

Today's shares feature some coloured images from the new Flying Home stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This is a super cute set of line drawn images which are just perfect for colouring.

Stampin Up Flying Home stamp set #occassions2018

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, onto Thick Whisper White cardstock as I planned to colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Light Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral.

I did two different designs, with the coloured images cut out either with the circle or square Stitched Shape Framelits.

The diecut I have used is from the Petals and More Thinlit Dies.  I tried it in Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, but I think I like the Soft Sky versions best.

I did a bit of a watercolour wash in Soft Sky around the coloured image to soften some of the white space.

I wanted the coloured images to be the focus of these cards, so I just went for a really small simple greeting from the At Home With You stamp set. I love the font in the greetings in this set.
