About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. 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. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Sustain You

Wow, did this week go fast? It did for me. Yesterday I finally did get my Christmas stuff down. The scourge (updating the budget) is over, so I finally got to move on to the other scourge (cleaning my house). And I’m actually really excited about it and look forward to doing it for like the next six weeks.

Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Blooms and Hold on to Hope with Touches of Texture - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Today I’m showing you one of the free Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that you can earn with a $50 order. The bouquet on the left of the card is from Heartfelt Blooms. This gorgeous stamp is lovely whether you stamp it tone-on-tone, stamp in a single color, or stamp it in a light color and color it with the Stampin’ Blends, which is what I did. I stamped in Crumb Cake, then colored the flowers with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Pumpkin Pie Blends markers. I colored the leaves with Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I noticed after I colored the leaves that since Old Olive is so much darker than Crumb Cake, I had covered up all of the intricate leaf details when I colored. So I used my Color Lifter to draw in some veins.

The Bible verse comes from the stamp set Hold On To Hope, which I bought just for this Bible verse. This one stamp is good for sympathy, illness, a really tough challenge someone is going through, or to celebrate coming through that big challenge. I had to have it.

On the Daffodil Delight card base, I stamped in Daffodil Delight with one of the stamps from Touches of Texture.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Heartfelt Blooms — isn’t that a lovely font? Then I stamped the same Touches of Texture stamp from the card front at the bottom edge of the mat.
