stampin’ fancy friday – color challenge…

05.17.2022…..Happy Tuesday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a “Color Combo Challenge”, which is ALWAYS fun!

For my color combo, I chose two of the new In Colors…Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party…to use for my color combo. I paired them with Pacific Point, which is actually a color I don’t use very often. This may just be one of my favorite color combos ever!

Be sure to join us to see what our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team created and…the gorgeous color combos they chose! We have 24 projects to share, and each with a different color combo!

Then you create with a color combo of your own or use one from our team, share your project on IG or FB and tag us by using #stampinfancyfriday or #fancyfridaychallenges in your post. We will share in our stories to inspire others as well!

everything wonderful…

05.09.22…..Happy Saturday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I’m sharing a card that I created with lots of amazing products from the brand new 2022-2023 Stampin; Up! Annual Catalog! Actually, the title of this blog post sums up the new catalog really well…’s just full of everything wonderful!

What I love about Stampin’ Up! products are how well they work with each other. On this crd, I used several new products, not all from the same suite, collection, or bundle….but they all blend together perfectly!

artisan design team – june 2021 – hand-penned suite…

06.23.2021…..Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m so excited to share my June monthly showcase projects for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! For this month’s projects, I was asked to use products from the Hand-Penned Suite, from the Stampin’ Up! 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.

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.

Be sure check out the rest of the team’s fabulous creations on the Stampin’ Up! Corporate Facebook Page at :

06.10.21…..Happy Thursday, everyone! I just can seem to get enough of the new Artistically Inked Bundle (Artistically Inked Stamp Set + Artistic Dies)! The stamp set is gorgeous, but the dies are just amazing! I had also been wanting to use Rose Gold 6″ x 6″ Metallic Speciality Paper on a project, so I thought the leaves die would be perfect for that!
