Bloom & Grow - Woven Threads by Tammy C. Wilson

06.14.19…..Happy Friday, my stampin’ friends!  The new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog has so many wonderful bundles and suites!  It makes is super easy to “grab and go” when you need to create a card or project at a moment’s notice.  However, the thing I also love about so many of the Stampin’ Up products, is how well they “cross-coordinate” with one another.

That being said, I created this card using the Bloom & Grow Bundle (Bloom & Grow Stamp Set + Budding Blooms Dies).  However, I also added in the following products from the Woven Threads Suite…..Woven Threads Designer Series Paper, Woven Threads Trim, and the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment.  It’s definitely an unexpected combo!

Bird Ballad - Stitched Nested Labels by Tammy C. Wilson

05.31.19…..Welcome to Thursday, stampers! I just love the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper from the new 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog! I also love chocolate (…a lot!!!), so I figured why not combine the Bird Ballad DSP with a sweet chocolate treat. And that my stampin’ friends, is the inspiration for these pretty little candy bar wrappers.

There are so many fun stamps sets and accessories in these catalogs, many of which will be retiring. So…if there are any retiring products that are still on your wishlist, you’ll want to order them as soon as possible!

That being said, I’m so excited that the Piece of Cake stamp set (used to create this card), along with coordinating Cake Builder Punch, will be carried over to the upcoming 2019-2020 Stampin’ Up!

Lovely as a Tree - Pink Watercolor Frame by Tammy C. Wilson05.06.2019…..Welcome to Monday, everyone!  I have to admit that I had a wonderful time creating my Lovely as a Tree frame yesterday.  So…..I figured why not create another framed project with the Lovely as a Tree set, but this time in an unexpected color combo.  I really wanted to switch things up, so I decided to Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Melon Mambo.  Hope y’all enjoy it!

If by chance you don’t have the Lovely as a Tree set, your last opportunity to purchase it will be June 3, 2019 (….or until supplies last).  Don’t miss out!!!

Well Said - Paper Pumpkin by Tammy C. Wilson

05.05.19…..The latest Paper Pumpkin kit (Sentimental Rose), has such a versatile stamp set, as well as beautifully designed cards, elements, and accessories.  I’ve really enjoyed making several projects from this “rosy” kit!

I absolutely love the gorgeous “Distinktive” flower stamp that is included in this kit, so I thought I would combine it with some other fun Stampin’ Up products and accessories.  While Stampin’ Up has sooooooo many wonderful bundles, suites, paper and accessories that are specially designed to be used together, I also truly enjoy “cross-coordinating” and mixing different styles and themes together with one another.    And that, my stamping friends, is the inspiration for this card…..

Paper Pumpkin - Sentimental Rose Banner by Tammy C. Wilson

04.28.19…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends!  Those of you that follow my blog know that I really enjoy creating cards, but I absolutely love creating home decor projects as well.  That being said, I decided to use this month’s Sentimental Rose Paper Pumpkin kit to create this floral, shabby-chic inspired banner.  The pre-printed images in this Paper Pumpkin kit are absolutely wonderful!  The roses and flowers are beautifully detailed, and the watercolor-inspired layering cards base add such a pretty pastel effect.

You’ll also want to check out my Sentimental Rose post, to see the shabby chic projects that I created with this kit as well.

04.14.19…..Happy Sunday, everyone!  It’s was such a gorgeous Spring day today….for a couple of precious hours.  Now…..the rain clouds are moving in, so I figured it’s another good day to stay inside, and do some crafting and creating.  That being said, I wanted to take the time to share this “shabby chic-inspired” card with you this morning.  The Tin Tile Embossing Folder made its debut in the 2018 Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog, and I used to for quite a few projects back then.  So…..I thought I pull it out once again to create a background for this card.  Luckily, this embossing folder is a carry-over item.  If you don’t have it yet, I know you’ll want to order it as soon as possible!

In the Woods - Enjoy the Season by Tammy C. Wilson

12.19.18…. Happy Wednesday, my Stampin’ friends!  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m using the last week before Christmas to share just a few more cards.  That being said, I created another card with the Winter Woods Bundle.  I love the versatility of this bundle!  I’m also super excited that the Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating In the Woods Framelits set will be carried over AFTER the 2018 Holiday catalog comes to an end on January 2, 2019.  (FYI:  After January 2nd, both products will be sold separately, and not as a bundle.)  So…..if you happen to miss out on these fabulous products, you’ll still have an opportunity to order them after the holidays are over.

All Hearts Come Home by Tammy C. Wilson

12.18.18….. I don’t know about y’all, but I just love the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  It is the sweetest little set (with its tiny houses and trees), and it just really evokes cozy, holiday memories for me.  By the way, this set is in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, so it will still be available after the holidays.  Yay!

All Things Thanks - Thanks for Everything by Tammy C. Wilson

11.03.18…..Ok my stamping friends, I realize it’s already November, and the Christmas season is upon us (…especially if you been to your local mall lately).  However, I’m still trying to soak in those last few of weeks of Fall, and remembering that we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate and to appreciate all of the many blessings I have.  So…I just had to make another card with the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  And, yes…if you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with it!  The color combinations are absolutely gorgeous….from Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry, to Mint Macaron and Early Espresso, and even Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.  I love them all!

Winter Woods - Enjoy the Season by Tammy C. Wilson

11.03.18…..The title of this blog post should really be “enjoy the seasons” (…instead of “season”).  I know many people have a favorite season, but I just really do love both the Fall and Winter seasons equally!  That being said, I wrapped both seasons up in this one little card, and used a mix of seasonal products.  The Country Lane Designer Series Paper has an Autumn Harvest feel, while the Winter Woods Bundle obviously has a Winter theme.

Woodland - You're the Best Thanks by Tammy C. Wilson

10.28.18…..While this is the time of year that we always focus on being thankful, I think we would all agree that the best time of year to be thankful is…..always!  That being said, I started this card with the “Thanks” sentiment, which had ended up in a corner of my craft table (along with several bits and pieces that I ended up not using on other projects).  I challenged myself to  “repurpose” some of those bits and pieces, and pulled them together to create this card.  I hope this card inspires you to do the same!

This weekend just about slipped away from me!  I can’t believe it’s already Sunday afternoon, and I wanted to make sure that I shared this card with you before the weekend was completely over.  I truly love every color that Stampin’ Up! has to offer, but I’m especially fond of the Subtles color collection.  The soothing, pastel shades really speak to me!

Labels to Love - Give Thanks by Tammy C. Wilson

08.26.18….. OK, let’s just get right to it, my stamping friends!  I know what your thinking.  Thanksgiving is still three months away, and she’s already posting a seasonal card!  I can explain…..

As a SU demonstrator, I was able to pre-order from  the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog.  (Customer orders can be placed between September 5 – January 2, 2018.)  This new catalog is chockful of so many amazing products!  That being said, I pre-ordered several items from the Country Lane Suite, which has a country/harvest theme, and I just couldn’t wait to get going on some new Fall projects.

I also couldn’t wait to create a card for the latest Global Design Project (#GDP152 – CASE the Designer), so I decided to incorporate that into my card design as well.

Nature's Poem - Friend by Tammy C. Wilson

08.06.18…..Even though it’s still the middle of summer (at least in Northern California), I’m really looking forward to Fall. Not only because the temperatures will be cooler (…yay!!!), but I just love all of the beautiful Autumn colors that nature gives us during that wonderful time of year! That being said, I went a little crazy, and created several cards using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. Since I couldn’t decide which card to post, I decided to post them all in a series that I’m calling “Nature Week”. Yes, my stamping friends… because I’ve become obsessed with this gorgeous paper, I will be posting a new card each weekday this week (Monday – Friday). I hope you enjoy them!

garden party…

Treat Time - Happy Birthday by Tammy C. Wilson

08.04.18…..Although I’ve never actually been to a garden party, I’ve always thought it would be such a beautiful way to spend an afternoon!  When I hear the phrase “garden party”, I think of roses, bouquets, and everything pink…..and that, my friends, was the inspiration for this card.  Once I had my inspiration, I immediately knew that I had to use the “oh-so-colorful”  Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.
