Adorable Moon Baby

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. We are being highlighted by the wonderful Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my card. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop in May, so please do go vote for me. I’d love to be in the top 10 blog hop again next month!

This month our theme is Babies. I’m using one of the projects that I made for my Display Stamper board at OnStage this past weekend. This card uses a retiring stamp set (Moon Baby), a continuing stamp set (Tabs For Everything), and a brand new stamp set (Lined Alphabet). Lined Alphabet will be available to customers on June 1st.

I’m so sad that Moon Baby is retiring! Make sure you get it if you want it before it retires forever! That pink ribbon is a new ruffled ribbon in Powder Pink. It will be available in all of the 2017-2019 In Colors.

Flowery Love

FB_IMG_1488872724561Hi! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners  (plus me) Blog Hop! The winners from March’s LOVE-themed Blog Highlights (plus me) are hopping with Kylie today. I did not make the top ten, but Kylie chose me as her special pick for the blog hop, and I am honored! Thank you to those who voted for me, and especially to Kylie for choosing me for the blog hop!

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness handmade love card with Lots of Lovely and Sweet Soiree paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Our theme for the blog hop is the same as the gallery that got us here — LOVE. I decided I’d not paid nearly enough attention to Heart Happiness and decided to use the ultra-feminine floral heart as the feature on my card.

I stamped the heart in Calypso Coral on the Calypso Coral background cardstock. I also heat embossed the heart in Silver on Whisper White cardstock, then colored it in with my Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral, Lemon-Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand). The “LOVE YOU” heart is from Lots of Love. The designer paper strip is from the Sweet Soiree paper pack, which is one of the most beautiful paper packs in the Occasions Catalog. I embellished the card with a strip of Lemon-Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon and some Iridescent Sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to go to the next blog in the hop and hop all the way around the world with us and get lots of inspiration. Right now you’re at Sarah Fleming’s blog.

Everything I used on my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store. Make sure to use the April Host Code (below) if your order is below $150, and I’ll send you extra goodies!

World Autism Awareness Day

Hello! Thanks for stopping by today. Today is special, because it is World Autism Awareness Day. We are blog hopping to help raise awareness and share information that some people may not know about autism. I, for one, didn’t know that 20-30% of children with autism will develop epilepsy by the time they’re adults. I have a family member with Asperger’s, and he suffered with seizures for quite a long time. He hasn’t had them in over a year, so we are thankful for that.

Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set, autism support ribbon handmade card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I’ve been sitting on this card for about a year. This was one of the first cards I made with the Ribbon of Courage stamp set last April, but World Autism Awareness Day had already passed, so I decided to hang on to it until today. To color in this ribbon, I pulled out my Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, and Soft Sky Stampin’ Write Markers. After I colored the ribbon and stamped the sentiment (in Pacific Point), I added squares in all four colors to the bottom of the card. These are 1/2″ squares. I also added a piece of ribbon and some rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you’d like to donate to the Organization for Autism Research, go here. And make sure to hop through the entire blog hop!

Go For Greece Blog Hop: Graceful Rose

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!

For my card, did a little watercolor emboss resist with Brusho again. I love the colors I get from just sprinkling on the color and also love the colors I can make by combining different Brusho colors. I demonstrated this technique in this video if you’d like to see how I did it. This time I heat embossed the huge rose from Graceful Garden on Watercolor Paper with Versamark and White embossing powder. I embossed the sentiment (from Flirty Flowers) at the same time, and I used my Stamparatus (available in early June!) to position the sentiment and make sure I had good ink coverage on my rose.

The colors on the rose are Gamboge and Yellow, which I sprinkled on before spritzing, and on the stem and leaves I used Moss Green. After spritzing, I created the green background color in a paint tray with two shakes of Yellow and one tiny shake of Prussian Blue. A little goes a long way with that color. After I watercolored the whole background, I added water to a few spots of the rose, then added some Brilliant Red in those spots.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you go through the entire blog hop. There are so many fabulous designers in this hop, and you’ll get a ton of inspiration!
