Here's today creations...

White a closer look at the pretty little stamped medallion...

White cu

While we are checking out the close up view take a look at that Freesia border...doesn't that coordinate  superbly with the flowers in the bouquet. That is one of the Delicate Edges borders in the catalog--it's a great set of 4 borders that have lots of variety and will complement most any stamp set.

You've probably notice the little gold flower trinkets popping their heads amongst the blooms. These are the new flower trinkets from the annual catalog & have become one of my favorite 'go to' embellishments (well, ok, iridescent rhinestones are #1 right now but these are a very close second)!

By adding a couple of small gold foil butterflies flitting around our flowers we've tied into the trinkets & also have given the suggestion of motion in our design.

The "hello there" greeting (one of the greeting in this set) is a super All Occasion verse. Using today's design and the one we created Tuesday--you'll have a wonderful set of cards in your stash. You can vary the colors and try out different combos for your bouquets to coordinate with your new colors.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back next Tuesday & see what we're creating then!

Remember: If you use this month's host code (CHF62MN3) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Creating a Quick All Occasion Card wtih Stampin'Up! Full of Love Stamp Set

Today we're Creating a Quick All Occasion Card wtih Stampin'Up! Full of Love Stamp Set. This is a sweet little new stamp set from the annual catalog---one of the great features is that you can build a nice selection of "All Occasion" cards in tons of your favorite colors to have on hand ready at a moment's notice.

Here's the stamp set...

Here's today's card...

Corbet fullAnd a closer look at the focal point...

Sorbet

What makes this a Quick card is that it's all done with a single stamp and the you simply color the flowers & leaves to coordinate with whatever color you choose for your background.

I chose the new Sweet Sorbet In Color Designer Series Paper--I love plaid and this one whispered "perfect combo" with this stamp set. So I obviously chose to feature that color as one of the major flower colors and then combined some supporting colors like Pool Party, Starry Sky, and Daffodil Delight and we have the perfect summer bouquet.

Coloring with the Blends (alcohol markers) is one of my favorite embellishments--the color just flows so smoothly and alwasy turns out brilliant and bright!

Instead of using the matching ribbon I chose a darker hue--so it didn't blend into the background but rather snapped into the foreground in a very pert way giving the whole card its zip.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back Thursday and see what we're creating then!

Remember: If you use this month's host code (CHF62MN3) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Sweet Sorbet cardstock 4 1/4 X 11, score long side at 5 1/2 (card base).

2. Cut Sweet Sorbet Designer Paper 4 1/8 X 5 3/8; adhere to card front with glue.

3. Cut approximately 14" red ribbon (Real Red & Garden Green Combo Pack); loop around card front and tie a knot near the left side.

Creating Another Sweet Card Using Stampin'Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle!

Today we're Creating Another Sweet Card Using Stampin'Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle! Tuesday we created a little cutie with this set--if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/08/creating-sweet-simple-with-stampinup-sweetest-cherries-bundle.html

Here's today's creation...

Frame

& a bit closer...

Frame cuWhat makes this card so quick and so cute at the same time is that awesome frame that becomes our central focus. This die is from a die set in the new annual catalog--and it's easy to miss since it's not part of a bundle...it's one of those super finds in the back of the catalog all nestled in among other dies that are (or were) associated wiht a stamp set.  This is one of two dies in the set. You can see how this adds pizazz and still stays in the background--we are still focusing on the cherry and "sweet" but that leafy frame just makes it all pop!

You'll notie again that we have cut the "birthday wishes" into two words because this is a bit more casual and our card is just simply sweet and not too fancy.

The designer paper is also from the host set called Design a Daydream...we chatted about this fantastic set of papers Tuesday---it can be yours when you host a class or if you just put in an order of $150 or more.

August is the last month of the summer Sale-a-bration---you don't want to miss earning those Freebies in the SAB brochure when you spend $50 or $100.  If you need to view the brochure.. Download SAB22_US

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back next week and see what we're creating then!

Remember: If you use this month's host code (CHF62MN3) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Creating Sweet & Simple with Stampin'Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle

Today we're Creating Sweet & Simple with Stampin'Up! Sweetest Cherries Bundle! This cute set makes it super easy to create quick sweet & simple cards...the bundle includes a punch with the cherry,  stem, & leaves. This makes cutting the parts from different colors a snap! No dies-- just quick punching from your chosen colors.

Here's the bundle..check out that punch!

BundeHere's today's card...

Triple

...a slightly closer look...

Triple cuNotice the cherries are in 3 shades of red--this makes stacking them a breeze since they do not blend into each other--we used Sweetest Sorbet (one of the new In Colors), Real Red, and Cherry Cobbler. The stems are punched from Early Espresso & the leaves from Garden Green.

The "birthday wishes" is actually a single stamp but I wanted to use the words separately so I hand cut them individually. When hand cutting words like this just use your Paper Snips & do quick straight cuts--rather than trying to cut slowly...this tends to get you straighter lines in half the time.

You may not recognize the designer paper unless you've hosted a class or party since the new annual catalog arrived! Yes, this paper (Design a Daydream) is a huge pack of 48 sheets (4 of each of 12 designs) & the variety is stunning...you'll see me using this pack quite a bit.

Did you know that you can be your own host? You don't actually have to host a class or party--anytime you place an order for $150 or more you qualify for host rewards & the designer paper could be your choice!

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Creating Another Beauty with the Stampin'Up! Free Wonderful World Bundle!

Today we're Creating Another Beauty with the Stampin'Up! Free Wonderfu World Bundle. Tuesday we used the stamp set from this bundle--if you missed it check it out here https://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2022/07/creating-with-stampinup-free-new-wonderful-world-bundle.html

Here's the bundle we're using this week

Bundle

Today we're using only the Designer Series Paper from this bundle...here's the card...

Wonderful worldand  little better look at the focal point..

Dsp cuNow you say...I thought we were only using the desiger paper--and you'd be right! The focal image is from the designer paper--it has 2 sheets of the small images all done in the various colors and flowers that appear in the designer paper.

So using the Stylish Shapes smallest square stitched die, we cut out one of these images, matted this with the black layer and another layer of Orcahid Oasis cut with the next size up of the Stylish Shapes stitched squares.

We added a tiny bow of Orchid Oasis Twine and 3 of those  brilliant Festive silver pearls to pop the design.

This was then layered on my favorite sheet of the designer paper layered on Starry Sky cardstock over a crisp white background. Now how pretty is that. 

You can change the color scheme by selecting another of the tiny flowers on those 2 sheets and create an endless supply of darling simple cards. But when you look at them---they don't really look simple with the varied shades of the coloring--they are simple tiny masterpieces.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back next week and see what else we're creating from the sale-a-bration items.

Remember: If you use this month's host code (29WVCFRT) you can earn $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) for every $50 in product that you order (excludes shipping & tax).

Directions:

1. Cut Thick White cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score long side at 4 1/4 (card base).

2. Cut Starry Sky cardstock 4 X 5 1/4; adhere to card front with liquid glue.

3. Cut Designer Paper (multiflower sheet) 5 1/8 X 3 7/8; adere to card front with glue.

4. Using smallest Stylish Shapes stitched square die cut the small iris from the designer paper (multi tiny flowers).

    *Cut Basic black cardstock 1 5/8 X 1 5/8; adhere to back of DSP with glue

    *Using next larger Stylish Shapes stitched square die, cut square from Orchid Oasis cardstock; adhere to back of unit above with glue.

    *Cut approximately 8" Orchid Oasis twine, tie in bow and adhere to stem with glue dot.
