Occasions and Sale-a-bration Sneak Peek Blog Hop

        















Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Yes! Yes! Yes! A New Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Sneak Peek Blog hop!  Whether you are beginning your blog hop journey at my blog or if you have arrived here from Siara Acdal awesome blog.  We are glad you are here.  Be sure to visit all of the blog hop participants beautiful projects by using the previous and next buttons on each post. 

It's always exciting when a new catalog debuts and the new Occasions catalog will not disappoint you.  I think I want everything shown in the catalog.

As I was perusing the new catalogs, the Botanical Gardens Collection really caught me eye, so I decided to share with you some cards that I made using the collection.
The Botanical Gardens Collection was so fun and easy to use.  The stamp set, designer series paper and matching framelits dies are available as a bundle or individually.  To make these cards I used a Very Vanilla cardbase and the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.  The coordinating cardstock used was Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Mint Macaron and Old Olive. 
The "Happy Birthday" card was made using the flower dies from the Botanical Builder framelits, the "happy" from the the Hello You thinlits and "Birthday" was stamped with the Hello Honey ink and the Crazy About You Polymer Stamp set.  
The "Celebrate You" card was made using flower dies from the Botanical Builder framelits and Birthday Blossoms Stamp set.   

The "Sending Wishes Your Way" card was made using flower dies from the Botanical Builder framelits and the Butterfly Basics Stamp set.
The "Thanks So Much" card was made using the small and medium flower from the Botanical Builder framelits dies, the Hello You thinlits die and the Crazy About You Polymer Stamp set. These cards were so quick and easy to make with all of the coordinating products.

I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog and looking at my projects. I would love it if you would leave a comment or subscribe to my blog. As an added incentive, if you leave a comment on my blog and include #stampitcontest in your comment, your name will be entered in a drawing to win this Going Global Wood Stamp Set and Going Places Paper Stack.  Thanks for hopping by.

Christmas Holiday Blog Hop

         

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Christmas Holiday Blog hop!  Whether you are beginning your blog hop journey at my blog or if you have arrived here from GiannaSardella’s awesome blog.  We are glad you are here.  Be sure to visit all of the blog hop participants beautiful projects by using the previous and next buttons on each post.  

When you see this card doesn't it make you want to break out in a round of Jingle Bells?  Dashing through the snow....this card is so easy to make but it has a lot of WOW power.


Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I love the smell of Christmas, the lights of Christmas and the excitement and anticipation of Christmas.  I love singing Christmas Carols, which is probably why I like the Sleigh Ride Edgelits die that I used to make this shaker card. To make this card I used Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock.  The "scene" was made with Dazzling Diamonds and Silver Glimmer paper, along with a Silver Foil sheet.  I made the "snow" with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter.


This card was made with Night of Navy and Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Stampin' UP! 2-way glue pen along the cut edge of the Whisper White "scenes" and then sprinkled the glue area with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Next I colored the houses, trees and horse drawn sleigh with Stampin' Write markers.  The bow was made with white 3/8" Glitter Ribbon.


To make this last card I used Whisper White, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate cardstock. The embossing was done using a Fun Frames embossing folder.  The flowers were stamped using the Awesomely Artistic stamp set, coloring the flowers with Stampin' Write markers.  The "Merry" was cut using the Christmas Greetings thinlits die and the "Christmas" which is accented with the tiniest of the Pearl Basic Jewels is from the Embellished Ornaments stamp set.               


I hope you enjoyed visiting my blog and looking at my projects. I would love it if you would leave a comment or subscribe to my blog. As an added incentive, if you leave a comment on my blog and include #stampitcontest in your comment, your name will be entered in a drawing to win this Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Thanks for hopping by.
