Spring Has Sprung – Pals March Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Pals’ March Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because ”Spring Has Sprung” – at least on our blog hop if not outside! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The last few days have finally started to feel like spring might be coming soon, or at least to Kansas. I’ve never been a huge fan of winter, but it’s hopefully coming to an end. Now don’t get me wrong, snow and ice are absolutely gorgeous. I love seeing the world clean, fresh, and frozen but I simply hate going out in it. Which is why when I heard birds chirping Sunday morning after the time change I knew spring was here – or almost here.

I was so excited to hear that this months Pals Blog Hop was all about Spring, I am SO ready for it to arrive!

Well_Written_and_Country_Floral_Full_Card_Stampin_Up_Jackie_Diediker

For my creation today I used the gorgeous Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create this spring inspired background. When I saw this folder I had to snatch it up. Luckily there is still time to earn this folder for free! That’s right, the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF is one of the lovely Sale-A-Bration rewards offered as part of our second release.

I first inked up my Country Floral Dynamic TIEF with a sponge dauber and a bit of Petal Pink Classic Stampin’ Pad and added touches of color throughout the background. I spritzed my Whisper White cardstock and ran it through with my Big Shot, ensuring I used the correct layers with my Big Shot Platform. I was left with a soft tone and the raised florals.

Then I used my sponge daubers again, only this time directly on my paper starting with my lightest color – Granny Apple Green on the leaves. I made sure to only keep a bit of each color on my sponge daubers so that I could add the layers and layers I wanted to get the tones to vary. Then I continually added light layers of Highland Heather to all the flowers until the paper was saturated.

This card needed just a bit of more dimension. With both Calypso Coral and Petal Pink cardstock and the Well Written Framelit Dies a sentiment was formed. I used one layer of each cardstock stacked with the word ‘Welcome‘ – hopefully to invite Spring. Lastly, I tied a fun bow using the Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon. This ribbon is absolutely luxurious and I think the finishing touch this card needed!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope my creation got you in the springy mood!

Fall 2018 Holiday Catalog is Live!

Today is the day! September 5th, 2018 we kick off the amazing new Holiday Catalog! There are so many fun and fabulous new products to share!

If your like me, you need to check out every sheet multiple times before you decide where to even begin. I always have a horrible time deciding which products to snatch up first.

With the holidays and season changing quickly I try to prioritize which holidays or events come first and focus there first, especially with the holiday catalog. That would be my suggestion for you, especially if you get a bit overwhelmed by so many amazing new items at once!

It’s a Pattern Party!

Welcome to the Pals July, 2018 Blog Hop. We’re having a Pattern Party. This month our creations will feature our favorite Designer Series Papers and coordinating embellishments from the new annual catalog from Stampin’ Up!

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Varied-Vases_Stampin-Up_Jackie-Diediker

I had so much fun with my card to today’s Blog hop! I have been having a good time with this amazing bundle, as you have probably noticed. Yes, this is probably the 5th or 6th card I’ve made using the Varied Vases Bundle.

I used a piece of the Call Me Clover cardstock for my card base. Then my main layer for my stamped images is a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I started off by stamping the stems in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then inked up the flower infills with Flirty Flamingo ink.

I used the Vases Builder Punch to cut out some different patterns from the beautiful In Color 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper. I cut three different vases, one solid Call Me Clover vase and three from the pretty DSP.

Turning these cut out pieces in different directions give you a completely different look and feel. I selected two of the stripe pieces and one of the small dot patterns which felt like it matched the scale of the rest of the card.

The finishing touches on the for this card is the little scalloped shelf using the longer strip stamp in Flirty Flamingo ink. Then adding this sweet sentiment, ‘You are simply the best!‘, in Memento Tuxedo Black.
