A Fun Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Thinlits Jackie Diediker Stampin UpJune was a big Birthday month for me. It wasn’t my Birthday, but I had lots of Birthday cards to create for friends and family members. Today I thought I would share two quick and fun card I made recently.

Happy Birthday Emerald Envy Thinlits Jackie Diediker Stampin Up

Both of these cards feature our Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper and the same colors of Basic Black and Emerald Envy. The top card would be considered a ‘Step Up’ card – since these start out with the same pieces and one design has a bit more pop added to it.

The card bases in each are our Emerald Envy with varying sizes of a Basic Black mat. I am featuring our new Happy Birthday Thinlits – both using the cut sentiment front and center. The top card has an accent with the addition of one 2016-2018 In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes in Powder Pink! A bit of a wow factor to really add that do to the ‘i’.

You can see with just a few small changes you can achieve a completely different look and feel to any card.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with and that you visit my blog again soon!

Floral ‘Thanks’ and TTTC004

Floral Statements Jackie Diediker Stampin UpGood evening everyone, I hope you’re having a nice 4th of July weekend. We took a short trip to Omaha and had a great time visiting the area and exploring.

Before we headed out on Friday, I got the chance to work on a few cards, including creating one for the current Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge. It’s been a while since I played along with a challenge card, so I thought I would try this one out! The best part of Tic-Tac-Toe Challenges is that the possible are almost endless with options to work within.

This week’s challenge board was so much fun! I worked with the right side row and pulled out this beautiful stamp set called Floral Sentiments. I loved this set when I first saw it a few months ago and added it to the top of my list! If your like me, you might also a sucker for roses, so this set was always coming home with me.

This image is stamped in Basic Grey Archival Stampin’ Ink which seemed to grab on to all of the little pits and details of this stamp. I colored in these lovely roses with our Stampin’ Write Markers in Powder Pink, Blushing Bride, and Old Olive. Since this stamp is so detailed I used only a solid mounting layer in Blushing Bride and a So Saffron card base.

Hope you enjoy my creation for this challenge. I can’t wait to play along with more challenges from this wonderful Design Team soon! Thank you for visiting me today! Have a wonderful evening!

My Favorite Products in the New Annual Catalog!

If you haven’t heard yet the 2017-18 Annual Catalog is LIVE and there are so many amazing new products! I wanted to share with you all of my favorites – there are a lot, so get comfortable!

#1 – Climbing Orchids

These Orchids are simply my current favorite item in the Annual Catalog. I love the texture these stamps add to these die cut shapes and how you can actually build your own Orchid – stunning! This was the first thing I added to my order when the entire Catalog went live!









#2 – Color Theory Suite

The colors, the season, the dies! You need it all! The first thing I notched about this collection was how easily with this Suite you could make a project for each season. Then I started delving into the details and noting the sweet ribbon, the bright colors, the designer series paper in 6×6, and finally the Memories and More kit! Talk about endless possibilities! Plus, this Suite has dies that match stamps and dies that are stand alone – all wonderful!










#3 – A Whole Lot of Lovely

These bold combination and colors and the pop of the Basic Black touch make me love everything about this suite. There is also a wonderful stamp set that gives you the ability to do so many different things with this collection!





#4 – Fresh Florals

The Fresh Florals Suite not only showcases this stunning Designer Series Paper, which may look familiar, but it also packs a lot of pop showcasing all of the wonderful new In Colors! This entire Suite is a must have – if your looking to pick up something that you will be able to use for all sorts of things, Fresh Florals is the way to go!







#5 – Just Add Color

I was lucky enough to take this stamp set home from On Stage in April and since then I have used this tamp set over and over again. With the new Catalog now Live I added this wonderful Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper to my order and of course some of the new Stitched Satin Ribbons too!






#6 – Love Today Planner

Oh, the Love Today Planner! This has been one of those items I kept hoping Stampin’ Up! would create, but when I saw that we have stepped up and our new Planner Kit is not only beautiful, but also functional I had to have it! I love the colors, the style, the extra fun pieces for a bit of Scrapbooking inside out planner….I was sold! I can’t wait to start filling mine!





#7 – Build a Bouquet

I simply love our Jar of Love and all the accessories and I felt like this bundle was created along those same lines. The variety of flowers included in this stamp set and fabulous matching will create such a variety of beautiful bouquets! I can’t wait to play with these cuties!





#8 – Foil Frenzy

Some creations just need that extra step up, or a bit of shine. Luckily the entire Foil Frenzy Suite is all about adding that extra touch! This new Designer Series Paper is stunning, but once you add it with this new Stamp Set and Coordinating dies – these is no comparison! I have been using this stamp set over and over again already, just wait until this Foil paper arrives! I know you will be seeing lots of different things coming from me- it’s so eye catching in person!










#9 – Embossing Paste

Talk about fun! This entire group of products come together to add color and texture to any project! The past Decorative Masks Stampin’ Up! have released have all been missing one thing – and now we have it! Adding just a touch of Embossing Paste will be able to add that extra touch and I can’t wait to get going with this stuff!









#10 – This Little Piggie and Mini Dimensionals

Now…I know I said 10 things, but I just couldn’t ignore either of these items….so here you go! This Little Piggie Stamp Set is a must have, or it was for me! When I saw this adorable Piggy I knew they were going to have to come home with me! I was super extra OMG lucky and was able to take this stamp set home with me after On Stage. I have already inked this cutie up, and the lucky ladies who attended my Catalog Launch last week all got to ink this set up too!

Now, way back when we did offer two different sizes of Dimensionals and I am so glad to see we have that option once more! The difference is that you get to pick which size you need – they are not included in the same pack so you can easily get some for smaller detailed projects instead of snipping your Dimensionals in half all the time – as I do.





I hope you enjoyed hearing all about My Favorite New Catalog items! Revisit the entire 2017-18 Annual Catalog and decide what your Favorite Things are! I would love to hear what made your list!
