whimsy and wonder…

09.20.2021…..Happy Monday, everyone! Am I a little obsessed with the Whimsical Trees Bundle (from the Stampin’ Up! July – December Mini Catalog)….ummmm…YES!!! I just can’t help myself! That being said, here is another card that I created with this wonderful bundle! For a bit of bling, I also added some of the Be Dazzling Speciality Paper, from the current Sale-A-Bration Catalog I just love the sparkle that it added to the three little trees, which I cut out with two of the dies from the Whimsical Trees Bundle. Hope this inspires you to add a bit of whimsy, wonder, and sparkle to your holiday projects!

christmas season bundle…

09.08.2021…..Happy Wednesday, my stampin’ friends! I had so much fun playing with the Christmas to Remember Bundle yesterday!

The traditional holiday colors in are absolutely beautiful, but I thought I would be fun to use some unexpected colors…Coastal Cabana, Soft Sea Foam and Gray Granite! To add some holiday sparkle, I used the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper (…available for FREE during the current Sale-A-Bration, when you place an order of $50 or more in Stampin’ Up! products). Hope this inspires to create something new and unexpected as well!

stampin’ fancy friday – fancy florals challenge…

08.30.21…..Happy Monday, everyone! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It is a “Fancy Florals” Challenge, so all of our team members created projects with our favorite Stampin’ Up! floral stamp sets and dies.

There were so many wonderful products to choose from, but I finally decided to go with the Pierced Bloom Dies to create this card. I die cut the flowers and leaves from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and used my Water Painter to add subtle washes Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue, and Soft Sea Foam. 

We’d love you to have you join us on this month’s challenge!

Tag us at #stampinfancyfriday when you post projects inspired by our monthly challenge.

We’d love to see what you create!

artisan design team – august 2021 – evergreen elegance & whimsy and wonder…

07.25.2021…..Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m so excited to share my August monthly showcase projects for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! For this month’s projects, I was asked to use products from the Evergreen Elegance Bundle (Evergreen Elegance Stamp Set + Evergreen Border Punch), from the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, and…the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper, from the Stampin’ Up! August – December Mini Catalog. Hope this inspires you to create some cards or projects with this wonderful products!

There have also been a few changes to the way the Artisan Design Team is sharing projects this year. The team has been divided into three groups, and each group is assigned a different collection of products to create with. This means an even greater variety of projects and inspiration. And…instead of the monthly blog hops, the team will have a greater presence on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page and their Instagram account as well.
