Good morning, and Happy New Year! Today I’m showing you another preview of lots of goodies that will be available Wednesday. The beautiful sentiment comes from the Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts stamp set. It’s a lovely, delicate stamp set that I know I’ll be using a lot. The designer series paper in the background is the gorgeous Petal Passion paper. This paper is all black and white and beautiful.

The card with the colored flowers is one of the cards from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. This is a black and white card, and I colored it in with Stampin’ Blends. I used Light and Dark blends in Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive. I used only the Light Cherry Cobbler Blends marker (but I’ve linked the Combo pack below if you want to go ahead and get the pair, which I recommend). The ribbon is from the Shimmer Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. You’ll be able to get this for FREE with a $50 (pre-tax and -shipping) order during Sale-A-Bration! Sale-A-Bration starts Wednesday and runs through March 31.

Inside the card, I added a strip of the DSP to a Whisper White background.

Merry Little Berries

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle, Pretty Pines thinlits, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits, Merry Little Christmas paper, Stampin' Blends - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Look at that gorgeous paper. Just look at it! Sometimes you make a card that you can’t stop looking at. For you, this might not be that card, but for me it is. Bold, bright, and blingy! That’s my jam.

I’m playing along with the Christmas Joy theme challenge at Global Design Project this week.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments bundle, Pretty Pines thinlits, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits, Merry Little Christmas paper, Stampin' Blends - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This piece of paper is probably my favorite piece in the Merry Little Christmas paper pack, because of all the coloring possibilities. I started with coloring the berries/leaves/olives/whatever those things are, and I was thinking of coloring the branches but thought they looked so striking left in white. I colored the berries (for lack of knowing what they are) with Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends. I started with Light, then colored the tips with Dark, then went back over the whole thing with Light again. I went over the dark areas of each berry with my Wink of Stella pen so they shimmer.

My card base is not Cherry Cobbler, but Real Red. I’ve found that the Dark Cherry Cobbler marker is more Cherry Cobbler, but the Light one is a perfect match for Real Red. On top of the card base is a 2″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The piece of Merry Little Christmas DSP was originally 4″ x 5-1/4″, and I cut off the edge with the decorative edge die from the Swirly Snowflakes thinlits. I just love that little extra detail! The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments, and I wanted it without the “from our family to yours”, so I stamped the whole thing in Real Red, cut it out with the Stitched Shapes circle, and then covered the “from our family to yours” part with some Year of Cheer washi tape. The white branches are cut with the Pretty Pines thinlits. Before adding the sentiment to the card, I popped in some Silver Mini Sequin Trim (tacked down with a Glue Dot), then put the sentiment on Dimensionals. The pines are glued to the center of the sentiment, and then I added some Rhinestones, which I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends marker.

Black and White and…

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Black & White plus one other color. I chose Bermuda Bay, one of my favorites.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas, Seasonal Bells, Bell Punch, Year of Cheer paper and washi tape, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card features the Year of Cheer specialty designer series paper (seriously love this stuff!), Carols of Christmas stamp set, Seasonal Bells stamps with Bell Punch, and Year of Cheer specialty washi tape. Oh, and the new Stampin’ Blends!

I sponged Bermuda Bay on the Year of Cheer paper with a Stampin’ Sponge before gluing it to the Basic Black card base. The sentiment panel is 3″ x 4″, and the Basic Black mat behind it is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″. I love the “deck the halls” sentiment stamped in black (I used Memento Tuxedo Black). After stamping the sentiment (I used my MISTI to line it up and stamp it), I glued it to the mat, added the strip of washi, and popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas, Seasonal Bells, Bell Punch, Year of Cheer paper and washi tape, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I stamped the bells in the same ink (that’s the ink Stampin’ Up! recommends to use with the Blends). I colored the bells with the Light and Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends (available for customers November 1!) and also the Color Lifter. For the tiny bell handles at the top, I didn’t want to risk going outside the lines, so I used the pointy end of a Stampin’ Write marker for those bits. I put the bells on Dimensionals and finished off the card with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside, but I just lined it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you liked my card featuring Bermuda Bay. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.
