This month's kit is called Cute Conversations and it's full of fun supplies.  This kit is not just for Valentines Day, you can create cards for any occasion with these supplies.

Here one of the cards I made with the January Kit.  It's a fun polka dot card using one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets you could choose FREE if you purchase a 3-month Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription.

Here are the instructions to create this card - Download Cute_Conversations_Sneak_Peak

Here's another card I created with the supplies in this months kit, the heart was a bit too big for the front of a card so I trimmed it off just a bit, love how this looks!

The small hearts are cropped from the excess paper that remains after you punch out all the die cut large hearts.  I used the Sweetheart Punch.

Love is in the Air!

Love is in the air!!  How fun is this card?! :-)  I used the Balloon Celebration Bundle to create the balloons and the greeting is from Bloomin' Love. Balloon_celebration_valentine

The balloons were stamped in our Basic Black on a few different patterns from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I cropped them with the Balloon Bouquet Punch and added them to the balloon strings, the smaller ones were added with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The greeting is stamped in Rose Red and then a tiny black heart was cropped from the Owl Builder Punch and is covered with Wink of Stella in clear and added with a drop of adhesive from the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

Balloon_celebration_valentine_close1I wanted to add some interest to the left edge so I added a skinny strip of Basic Black and a strip of Rose Red trimmed with the Small Scallop Stampin Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade and the Stampin Trimmer Rotary Addition.

I love what this little element adds to the card.

The tiny bow on the balloons was hand cut with our Paper Snips.  I just love how this card turned out. :-)

Another Bold Botanical Builders Card

Yesterday, I posted THIS CARD using the colors from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack and today, I have another card for you.  This one is very similar but it keeps the bottom part of the black die cut.

Botanical_blooms_black_mint_wink

This time, I die cut the leaf edgelit and kept the bottom section, adhered it to my Mint Macaron card base and then added a large Pacific Point flower and some of my leftover flowers from yesterdays card.

The Congrats greeting is one of our Expressions Natural Elements that I covered with our NEW Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.  It is so sparkly in real life.  Here is a photo I took of three of the wood elements, the top one is naked, the middle one is covered in our Clear Wink of Stella and the bottom one is covered in the Gold Wink of Stella.  If you click on he photo, it will open in a larger window and you can see more of the sparkle the wink of Stella gives.

Wood_wink_stella_group1I also added some black sequins from our Metallics Sequin Assortment, a bit of our Gold Meltallic Thread and one of the NEW It's My Party Enamel Dots to the center of the larger flower.  LOVE THESE!!!

Botanical_blooms_black_mint_wink_close1Here's a photo of the two cards side by side.  I {heart} this color combo!!

Bold Botanical Builders!

I have been playing around with my Botanical Builder Framelits and the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set and here is one of the cards I made.

I wanted a bold color combination as I wanted to use Basic Black.  Went to the Designer Series Paper section in my Annual Catalog and found exactly what I was looking for.  The colors in the Pretty Petals DSP stack were perfect for my project.

I started with a 4-1/4 x 11 sheet of Basic Black cardstock, placed it open on my Precision Base Plate and ran it through with the curved leaf edgelit included in the die set.  This curved die is so cool!!!  I then cut a quarter sheet of Mint Macaron and added it to the inside front layer of the card to really make it pop.

Botanical_blooms_pacificMy greeting comes from the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration set.  You can earn this set FREE when you order the Botanical Blooms Bundle (or any other combination of products that total at least $50)

You can see all the available Sale-a-bration sets HERE.

The leaves were cut from Old Olive and a couple of them were stamped with the coordinating image in Old Olive ink.  I then gathered quarter sheets of my other colors, Mint Macaron, Pacific Point and Calypso Coral.  I die cut each of the flowers from each color so I would have a bunch to play with.  I just randomly started layering the different shapes and colors and came up with this combination and I love it!! 

Botanical_blooms_pacific_close1

Botanical_blooms_pacific_sequinsAfter I glued all the flowers down, the card was just missing something and I immediately thought of adding some sequins.  
Sequins are so inexpensive and they really do add to any project.
I was thrilled when I checked my stash of sequins (I have them all plus the extras from  my Paper Pumpkin kits) and found that the Brights Sequins contain Pacific Point!!  They added just the right amount of bling. :-)

I used these same colors and made a similar card and I will post that one tomorrow for you.

Bloomin' Heart Thinlit and Red Foil Sheets

This is one of the cards my Be a Big Shot at Home gals had in their January packets. It uses the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits along with our Red Foil Sheets and the result is stunning!

Bloomin_heart_redfoil

I added the greeting from Grateful Bunch in Real Red ink.  the small heart is cropped from the Owl Builder Punch out of our Gold Foil Sheets. The heart is layered onto a 4x4 piece of Very Vanilla and I added diagonal score lines using the Simply Scored tool and the Diagonal Plate, I think it looks really cool!

Missing You - Happy Home

The Happy Home stamp set on page 21 of the Occasions Catalog coordinates with the Hearth & Home Thinlits but you can use the stamp set without the Thinlits.

Here is a card I created using just the stamp set.
Happy_home_missing_you
I stamped the bench image on a 2 x 4 strip of Whisper White and colored the bench, clouds and grass with my Stampin' Write Markers in these colors: Crumb Cake, Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz.  The other two images were stamped on the Old Olive layer in Old Olive ink. 

I used the negative space created from a 1" Circle Punch and added a shining sun over the bench and then colored it in with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Clear.

Happy_home_missing_you_close
I added a 2 x 1-1/2 piece of Corrugated Paper near the bottom of the White layer and then flagged the end of a 3/4" strip of Soft Sky for the greeting.  A cute bow tied with Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon finishes it off.

This is one of the cards my club members made this month and most of them chose this stamp set as one of the freebies with their order. 

Sky_is_the_limit_gray
We used the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper on the bottom section and we stamped both clouds on it in Smoky Slate.  The same clouds were stamped in the same color on the top Whisper White section.  The heart smoke trail was colored with our new Wink of Stella in Clear as well as the propeller.

Be Mine - Bloomin' Love

Pulled out my Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die and created this Valentine's Day card for my hubby.  My club members are also making this card this month.  We were able to choose from four different greetings by using the coordinating Bloomin' Love stamp set.  I chose the Be Mine greeting. :-)

Bloomin_love_glimmer

I started with a 4 x 5-1/4 panel of Whisper White and inked my brayer with Blushing Bride to cover my Watercolor Wash Background Stamp.  We stamped it on the right side of the white panel and then added a strip of Designer Series Paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack to the left edge.  A 3/8" strip of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper works as the perfect divider.

BARB'S TIP: Please note, the Precision Base Plate is a must for cutting this detailed heart.  I ran it through the Big Shot twice, moved it and ran it through two more times.  Ran over  it with the NEW Big Shot Die Brush and had no trouble popping out the remaining "chads".  Love the Precision Base Plate!!!

I used the small flower dies included in the set to add the Glimmer flowers to the heart.  Love how this paper sparkles.

Limited Time SAB set - Sky is the Limit

As you know Sale-a-bration started yesterday and in case  you weren't aware of it, there are three items in the Sale-a-bration Brochure that are only available through February 15th.  Sky is the Limit, Hello and the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper are available for a limited time.

I find the little plane in this set so fun to work with.  For this card, I fussy cut the plane and popped it up using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Sky_is_the_limit_watermelon

I used a few of the BRAND NEW products unveiled in the Occasions Catalog.  The Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Clear.

I also used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and the Iced Rhinestones that carried over from the recently retired Holiday Catalog.

I created a banner for my greeting by punching a 1" strip of Watermelon Wonder cardstock with the Banner Triple Punch and then added a 1" piece of Basic Black to the end to make the banner pop.  I covered the end of the Watermelon Wonder Banner with our new Wink of Stella in Clear.  This stuff is so amazingly easy to work with.

Check out the Stampin' Up! video showing you a few ways to use this sparkly fun in a pen - Wink of Stella

Sneak Peak Week - Occasions and Sale-a-bration!! 7

Today is the last day of my Week of Sneak Peeks  from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs so I thought I would save the best for last.  I couldn't wait to play with this new die from the Occasions Catalog and I know you will love it!  This card is also one that my Be a Big Shot at Home Class will get to make in March.

It's called the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and you can use it to make a fun pop-up on the inside of your card or trim the pop-up shapes to use as fun elements on the front of your card.  The Thinlines coordinates with the Party with Cake Stamp Set.  The two are sold as a Bundle as well as individually.

The die is super easy to use and I highly recommend using the Precision Base Plate with this one. 

I paired it with the Honeycomb Happiness and Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration stamp sets to create this fun card for my niece. I stamped the balloon image twice, once on the Whisper White layer and again on a scrap of DSP from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack and cut it out.  I colored the bow with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker.

I added another pattern from the It's My Party DSP Stack to the left edge and wrapped both colors of the new Baker's Twine Combo Pack around it. 

Open the card and you have this fun element that pops out at you.  I added some confetti and another greeting to the inside.
