More beer????

Ok, it's not beer, but I used the Brewed for You stamp set for this one.  I stamped a sprig from Honeybee Home.  I colored the flowers and jug in with Stampin' Blends (Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo).  To be completely honest, I covered up a smudge on the top right with the sentiment circle (retiring die - Tasteful Labels, sentiment from Hand-Penned).  What do you think?  Does it look like a beer jug?!

Brewed for You!

It's no secret -- I love a good craft beer!  When I saw this Brewed for You set in the upcoming Stampin' Up! annual catalog, I knew I had to have it.  Once I started playing, I couldn't stop.  Here are a few cards I've created using this fun set.

This uses brand new In Colors - Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis.  I've used the In Color dsp for most of it.  The "tray" is made from a piece of a retired dsp (any wood would do).  It was cut using the new Stylish Shapes and the banner was too.  The embellishments are new as well.  

I made the "tray" with a concrete looking piece of paper from In Good Taste for this.  The mug and glass are vellum, and I put some Wink of Stella on them for a shimmery look.  It's so hard to capture in a photo.

I decided to try the square Stylish Shapes for this card.  The larger one is the Neutrals dsp, and the smaller is Basic Gray cardstock.  I put some splash on with a random stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment if you have a minute!  I love reading them.  Stay tuned for the next post which will be a non-beer card I've created using this.

Here is the new catalog cover.  That's all I can show for now.   It goes live on May 3.

If you are not working with a demonstrator and would like a new catalog, please message me. I'd be happy to send you one, and I'd love to earn your business.  I send a small gift and handmade card with every order $50 and over.

Honeybee Home - Mini preview

I used the Honeybee Home bundle for this card.  Don't you just love those cute little bees?!  This bundle coordinates so well with the Heart and Home bundle.  They are both in the upcoming spring mini catalog. I CASED the catalog.  They show a beautiful tag which inspired me.  

I changed the color combination by using Misty Moonlight, Basic Gray, So Saffron and Old Olive.  The Misty Moonlight panel was embossed using the Hive 3D embossing folder I used a piece of the pretty dsp from Heart & Home and die cut it with Stitched Rectangles.  I then added one of the Heart & Home doilies, then stamped and die cut flowers and bees.  I put a little bit of color using Stampin' Blends in Misty Moonlight, Old Olive, So Saffron, and the colorless blender.  A piece of the Denim ribbon was tucked under the sentiment piece from Heart & Home.  I finished by added some of the Classic Matte Dots which I love!

Heart and Home

I attended the Stampin' Up! OnStage event last weekend.  It was fantastic! I'm so excited about the new spring catalogs and can hardly wait to share with you!  One bundle I was able to order before the event was the Heart and Home bundle.  It's a beautiful stamp and die set. I made this fun fold card with it.  I used the pretty dsp from this bundle, the Tailor Made Tags dies, and a great sentiment set from the annual catalog called Through it Together.  I hope you like it!  

Just a tip, I stamped the flowers in Cinnamon Cider, then used a Stampin' Blend in Pale Papaya after it dried a bit.  You can't color a lot, just very lightly as it can smear the ink.  I had the Cinnamon Cider pieces sitting on my desk so I put them to work as well.  If you need the tutorial for the fold, scroll back a few posts and you will see it.  It's a favorite of mine!

If you shop in my store and spend $30 or more, you will get a gift and a homemade card from me.  Just use this host code:  K94VWUK6

Pals Blog Hop - Fantastic Fun Folds

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I was excited to participate in this month's Pals Blog Hop when I saw the theme.  I LOVE fun folds! I saw this particular one first on Julie Davison's blog.  I have made so many cards with this fold!

This one is using Beauty of the Earth designer paper. All of the patterns are gorgeous!  A quick tutorial:

Daffodil Delight Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (just a panel)
Designer Series Paper cut at 5-1/4" x 11-3/4" (be sure pattern is upright)
Score dsp at:  1-3/4", 4-3/4", 7-3/4" on the short (5-1/4") end
Burnish edges.  The top 1-3/4" will be the back side of the paper.
Adhere the back/bottom onto the cardstock panel.
Cut leaves from Stitched Leaves dies and sponge dauber the edges.
Add a label/tag for sentiment.  I used one from Love of Leaves and cut with Tasteful Label dies.
I added some Gilded Gems for embellishments.
Inside is 2-1/2" x 5"

Let me know if you have questions!

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on November 10th. Our theme will be “Home for the Holidays” when our Design Team creates a project to celebrate the upcoming holidays. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
