About Me

I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit.

Go For Greece Blog Hop: One For All

Hello! Welcome to the Go For Greece Blog Hop! Go For Greece is a training group put on by the lovely Kylie Bertucci, and we are all building our Stampin’ Up! businesses. Thank you for your support as I build mine!

Stampin' Up! One For All, Marbled, and Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamps, Balloon Builder and Decorative Trio punches - featuring Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

One For All was one of the first stamp sets I ordered from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, mainly because I love big sentiments that do all the work for you.

My card base is Highland Heather, and I stamped the background with the Marbled background stamp in Gorgeous Grape ink. These are two of our new purples, and I love them. After I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape on Whisper White cardstock, I punched the corners with two of the corners of the Detailed Trio punch. I punched the floral bit first, then the corner rounder.

That little balloon from Happy Birthday Gorgeous is stamped in Granny Apple Green (new favorite green!) and Soft Sea Foam and punched with the Balloon Bouquet punch. I finished the card off with Whisper White Baker’s Twine and the new Glitter Enamel Dots.

Stampin' Up! One For All, Picture Perfect Birthday, Waterfront stamps with Everyday Label Punch and Glitter Enamel Dots - Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! I have so many cards to blog, so hopefully this will be a full week of blogging here at PTD. First up is this card for our “Summer Fun” challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper. There is a giveaway for our top three winners this week, so make sure to play along!

If you know me well, you know that summer is Not My Thing. I hibernate from roughly April until November. I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong state. However, there is lots of fun to be had in summer in the mountains, where the heat is not too horrid. And I was really happy when I remembered that, because until I thought of mountains, I was really struggling with this challenge! Ha. But after I thought of that, this card came together really quickly (for me). The Waterfront stamp set makes quick work of scenery!

Stampin' Up! One For All, Picture Perfect Birthday, Waterfront stamps with Everyday Label Punch and Glitter Enamel Dots - Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my Summer Fun card, I wanted to start with this silhouette of the girl riding her bike. But I didn’t want the full image, which includes a sentiment, so I covered that in washi before inking the stamp with StazOn, then removed the washi and stamped the girl. By the way, I have a hard time getting a complete image on solid stamps with StazOn, so I used my Stamparatus and stamped her twice. Then I filled in the scene around her. I did the dirt road, mountains behind the forest, and dirt behind the trees around the lake in Crumb Cake. The lake is Coastal Cabana, and the trees are Shaded Spruce (full-strength and stamped off). I went over the stamped lake a tiny bit with a damp Aqua Painter, just to smooth it out a little.

The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday, stamped in Coastal Cabana and punched with the Everyday Label punch, and I finished the card off with some Tea Room Ribbon and Glitter Enamel Dots, both in Coastal Cabana.

I hope you like my card and are inspired to play along with the challenge over at Stamp, Ink, Paper!

Stamp, Ink, Paper: Birthday Details

Good morning! I hope you’re having a great week! I have some fun news… I’ve been asked to join the Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge design team for good! I’m thrilled to have been asked, and of course I said yes. This week’s challenge is a sketch challenge. I love this super-versatile sketch by the wonderful Andrea Tracy-Tucker. Here’s my take on it:

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wishes for You, Delightfully Detailed paper, Lovely Floral dynamic embossing folder, Nature's Roots framelits - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge

I went briiiiiiiiiight with my card. I guess that was my mood and my absolute giddiness over all the new bright colors we get to play with. I first embossed the Pineapple Punch card base with the Lovely Floral dynamic embossing folder, then layered a bunch of stuff on top of that.

My sentiment panel goes like this: The bottom pink layer is Flirty Flamingo, cut with a die from the Stitched Labels framelits (twice, once on top and once on bottom). The top pink layer is Petal Pink, which is an interesting color. For some reason, on its own, Petal Pink is a very pale peachy color (I store it with my other orange colors). But paired with Flirty Flamingo, it actually looks pink. *shrug* On the Petal Pink layer I stamped a small flower from the Cake Soiree stamp set in the same color. I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on Pineapple Punch designer series paper, then fussy-cut it and colored in the holes with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Write Marker. The big intricate flower is cut from the Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper, sponged with Lovely Lipstick ink.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wishes for You, Cake Soiree, Lovely Floral embossing folder, Nature's Roots framelits, Stitched Labels framelits, Bouquet Bunch framelits, Delightfully Detailed paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

To finish off the card, I added leaves in Granny Apple Green and Silver Foil, which I cut with the Nature’s Roots framelits and Bouquet Bunch framelits, and some rhinestones.

Stampin' Up! Love What You Do stamp set with Share What You Love paper, Stampin' Blends, Metallic Brads, Everyday Label Punch

My card is actually one of my Display Stamper cards from OnStage in April. I really loved having the Share What You Love paper and Love What You Do stamp set in my box of goodies! For this card, I used a Basic Black card base, then a Rich Razzleberry skinny mat. Then I added this gorgeous piece of Share What You Love paper.

My focal point uses the Black Ice technique and the Love What You Do stamps. After I made the black ice panel, I decided to color on top of the embossing with Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. (Note: The previous colors of Blends are now available!! And the new colors that are in the new catalog will be available within the next week or so!) The sentiment is punched out with the Everyday Label Punch, and I finished off the card with the new Metallic Brads and the Silver Mini Sequin Trim.

Thanks for visiting my blog today; I hope you like my card and that it brightened up your day! Make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog to vote for my card and check out the other amazing projects in the gallery. I would love to be chosen to do the next international blog hop!
