3rd Thursdays – Painted Seasons

Good afternoon! Welcome to the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop! This is a pretty new blog hop, so for now, it’s a short hop! I’m excited to be on this team with several very talented people! Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration, as the 2nd release of freebies came out this week.

Stampin' Up! handmade birthday or celebration card using Fairy Celebration and FREE Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons designer series paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my card, I’m using the Fairy Celebration stamp set, which has been around forever. I just had to use it, though, because this GORGEOUS paper just makes me think fairies. I mean… the whimsical mushrooms? Fairy shelters, right?

The paper is FREE paper that Stampin’ Up! released this week. You can earn the Painted Seasons bundle, which includes the Painted Seasons paper and the matching Painted Seasons stamp set, with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration. This is one of my favorite SAB freebies EVER.

Stampin' Up! handmade birthday or celebration card using Fairy Celebration and FREE Sale-A-Bration Painted Seasons designer series paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card base is Mango Melody, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. The piece of designer series paper I used is 4-1/8″ x 3-1/2″. I glued that to the card base, then added a piece of Poppy Parade ribbon (about 7″) with Tear & Tape. I cut out a stitched circle from Whisper White cardstock with the Stitched Shapes framelits, then stamped the fairy on that in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored her with Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, and Petal Pink Blends and added her to the card with Mini Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment (all one line) in Poppy Parade on Whisper White cardstock, then snipped it into three lines and put those on the card using Mini Dimensionals. To finish off the card, I added seven Iridescent Sequins. This was a super easy and quick card to make, but I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way through! You’re currently at Sarah Fleming’s blog (in the USA), and next is my friend Kimberley Morris.

Painted Monochrome

Good morning! I’m so glad to be back to crafting again! Other than a little crafting one evening when we were in the hospital (thank goodness I packed a crafting bag just in case — by the end of our hospital stay, we were so bored), I haven’t been able to craft at all. Today I’m jumping back in with a monochromatic card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge. Make sure to check out the other design team cards and play along!

I rarely do monochromatic cards — I always think in terms of color combinations, so I forget to do something as simple as combining different greens or blues or oranges. So I enjoyed creating for this challenge.

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons stamp set and paper -- FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $100 order -- Share What You Love stamps, Story Label punch -- monochromatic thank you card design - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Stampin’ Up! released a second group of three Sale-A-Bration freebies this week, and I’m totally in love! I am using the Painted Seasons stamp set. This set comes in a bundle with the Painted Seasons designer series paper, and you can earn it for FREE with a $100 purchase now until the end of Sale-A-Bration, while supplies last. The Painted Seasons stamp set is a DistINKtive stamp set, and it is probably my favorite DistINKtive stamp set ever. The images in the stamps are so beautiful. Here I stamped the biggest flower and two of the leafy branches in Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Blueberry Bushel to make my own background paper. Aren’t the stamps stunning?

After I stamped the background on Whisper White cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″), I mounted the background on a Pool Party card base (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). I stamped two more flowers in Blueberry Bushel and Bermuda Bay ink, then cut them out with the matching Four Seasons framelits. These framelits are LIMITED TIME dies that will be available March 1 – March 31 during the Sale-A-Bration Coordination promotion. I mounted both of the flowers on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment, from the Love What You Do stamp set, in Blueberry Bushel, then punched it out with the Story Label punch. This is a new punch that will also be available March 1 – March 31 for a limited time. I mounted the label on Dimensionals (double stacking the Dimensionals anywhere that the label doesn’t overlap the flowers). I finished the card off with a bow made from the Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll pop over to the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog to check out the challenge and play along! We love to see what you create.

Hello!

Life/Baby News: Hey there! It’s been a while, eh? Well, see, I went and had a baby about three and a half weeks ago. So I’ve been a little occupied with the sweetest little guy on the planet. He’s wonderful. He came a little early and had some trouble with his oxygen levels, so we spent our first week with him in the NICU. That was stressful on its own, but even more stressful because we were away from our other kids (thankfully we have awesome mothers who took care of the big kids AND made sure we came home to a clean house – RAISE THE ROOF HANDS EMOJIS). Our other kids didn’t even get to meet him until he was a week old, because none of them are old enough to be in a NICU. We’ve spent the weeks since bringing him home settling into our new normal. Four kids! It’s crazy and wonderful and exhausting, LOL. And some idiot (me, it was me) signed three kids up for baseball/softball back at the end of December, which started this week. Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. I’ll still be spotty for a while, but I wanted to pop in and update you. I can’t do Facebook Lives right now because I’m nursing the baby on a schedule for a few more weeks but hope to have some new YouTube videos soon.

Online Classes: Our Online Class for February had to be put on hold, because the Cake Builder punch is out of stock until mid-March. So we’ve extended the Beauty Abounds class through February – you may still register for this class through the 28th. Our March class is going to be the Birthday Cheer Class (look for the registration to open soon), and we will do the Piece of Cake class in April.

Suite Shares: Suite Shares are still available for the Occasions Catalog. I will cut these off at the end of Sale-A-Bration, March 31st, so make sure to order those by the end of next month.

Thanks for stopping by! I do have a card going up in the morning, so make sure to check back in tomorrow!
