For the Love of Creating Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the For the Love of Creating Blog Hop! This is a new quarterly blog hop that will focus on highlighting the latest and greatest Stampin’ Up! products. So thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ll jump all the way through the hop and see all the amazing projects that the designers have come up with using new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration products. This is an insanely talented team, so you won’t want to miss anyone’s blog. Currently you’re visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts with Hold On to Hope, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack (free with $50 purchase), Stampin' Write Markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My first card is a card I made for a recent swap with other demonstrators. The background is stamped with a floral flourish from the Hold On to Hope stamp set. The flower cart comes from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts, and I colored it with Stampin’ Write Markers. I also sponged Lemon-Lime Twist around the flowers before I colored them in.

The sentiment is from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts. What a sweet message to send to a friend! The ribbon is FREE Sale-A-Bration ribbon (with $50 order), and the glimmer paper is from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. One thing about gluing things down on top of Glimmer Paper — you need to use hot glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen or the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and allow a long drying time. What I did for the swap cards was I put the Glimmer Paper banner underneath the flower cart layer, then attached the ribbon and sentiment on top of the flower cart layer. That takes a lot less time!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My second card is in a completely different direction and a different style. I can never settle on my own personal style, because I love them all. I heat embossed the Hello Color stamp from the Annual Catalog, then sprinkled Brusho Crystals on top of the embossed area, then spritzed. I used Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, and Yellow. Look how many wonderful colors and shades you can get from a few sprinkles and a quick spritzing! Brusho is one of my very favorite products from the new Occasions Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The “celebrate” sentiment is die cut from Shimmery White cardstock using the Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration). After I cut it out, I sprinkled on Prussian Blue and Brilliant Red Brusho crystals, then spritzed the die cut. And this is how it turned out! I love that you never know what you will get with Brusho.

Happiest of Birthdays

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday with Picture Perfect Party paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey there! Super quick post for you tonight. The card base is Berry Burst, and the fun party paper is the Picture Perfect Party paper. The glimmer paper (GORJ!) is Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, which comes in three colors. The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday. The big bow looks like a real 3D bow, doesn’t it? I snipped that out of the Picture Perfect Party paper and popped it up on Dimensionals. Cool, right? I finished off the front with Iridescent Sequins.

The sentiment and bow on the inside of the card are both from Picture Perfect Birthday. The sentiment is stamped in Lemon-Lime Twist. For the bow, I stamped the main parts in Peekaboo Peach (stamped off once) and the shadows in Peekaboo Peach (not stamped off).

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wit, Bubbles & Fizz paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good evening! It’s late, I know. I just was too sleepy to blog last night, tbh, and this is the first chance I’ve had. So here’s a fun and bright birthday card.

I always like the punny or sarcastic or silly stamps. This new stamp set, Birthday Wit, has a few fun sentiments for birthday cards that are a little irreverent (and poke fun at food weirdos like me, because one of them is about being gluten-free, dairy-free, carb-free, etc. — I can’t eat anything fun).

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wit, Bubbles & Fizz paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The two designer papers on this card are from the FREE (with $50 purchase) Sale-A-Bration paper, Bubbles & Fizz. How fun is this paper?! I’m probably going to need a second pack. And look at that gorgeous Glimmer Paper! This is the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (it comes in 3 colors). LOVE!

Do you see the bottom edge of the Whisper White cardstock panel that the sentiment is stamped on? I have been neglectful of this fun little border punch! I don’t know why, because it’s so cute. This is the Ticket Tear Border Punch. I’m glad I pulled it out.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop: Picture Perfect Party

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 Favorite DSP (designer series paper). This one was a hard one to choose! I have lots of favorites from the Annual Catalog, but my new current favorite is full of BRIGHT, bold colors, so I am in love. It’s the Picture Perfect Party paper from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.

So bright!

This DSP is fantastic and super meta. Yes, meta. Okay, so the designer of the paper designed the patterned side. Then used the paper from the patterned side to make party-related things, like hats, bows, etc. Then SU photographed the things made with the patterned side of the paper, and those pictures are the other sides of some of the paper! That’s so cool that it kind of blew my mind.

I used the new Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set for the sentiment, and the little present comes from the Party Hat Birthday set. And look at the Glimmer Paper! It’s the new Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The ribbon is Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.
