Hedgie Hugs

Hi!  How are you today?  In need of a hug?  Well, I have just the card for you!

Hedgehogs, Hugs, Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Occasions2018

Aren’t these little guys adorable?  This is the new stamp set Hedgehugs in the Occasions Catalog.  How cute would this be for a Valentine’s card or to wish someone a Happy Birthday?

The base of my card is Crumb Cake and the little flowers were stamped with Crumb Cake ink.  The Hedgehogs were stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White card stock.  I used the Early Espresso watercolor pencil to add some shading on his body and then blended it with a Blender Pen.  The little flower he’s holding was colored with a Real Red Marker.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede as well.  The flower is colored with Real Red and Old Olive markers and stamped next to the sentiment.  It was punched out with the 1 1/2″ Circle Punch and layered on a 1 3/4″ Soft Suede Circle.  I added a thin strip of Burlap Ribbon to finish him off.

What do you think?  Could you use a hug?  If so, email me your address at: teresa.howe@verizon.net and I’ll send you a hedgie hug!

Simply Amazing

Hi! Today I have a card for you featuring the Amazing You Sale-A-Bration set and coordinating dies.  Both of these products are FREE with a purchase during Sale-A-Bration!

Amazing You, Celebrate You, Stampin' Up!, SAB2018, SU!

I had seen a card very similar to this one in my Stampin’ Success magazine (a perk from Stampin’ Up! for demonstrators) and just love it and decided to make one.  I did change up a few things from the card I CASE’d, but not much.

This card has so much texture to it – from the Hexagon Embossed Fresh Fig Layer, to the Eclectic Layers Die Cut star in the bottom right.  The Bermuda Bay leaves are also die cut from the Eclectic Layers set.  The stamped panel is die cut using the Lots of Labels framelits.  The word “amazing” is die cut from Champagne Foil (yes! these carried over from the Holiday Catalog!).  And the colors are just so happy!

All supplies to make this card can be found in my on-line store.  The Amazing You Stamp set is FREE with a $50 purchase and the Celebrate You thinlets are FREE with a $100 purchase.  (You are not able to choose both with a $100 order -but you can get both with a $150 order! – plus at this level, you’ll earn Stampin’ Rewards of $15 – so more FREE goodies of your choice!)

Epic Celebration

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope 2018 is starting off on a good note for you!  Today I have a card featuring the Epic Celebrations Sale-A-Bration set.  You can earn this set FREE with a $50 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax).  It is a great set for the teens and males in your life!

Birthday, Masculine, Epic Celebrations, SAB2018, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I do tend to struggle with masculine – especially teen – cards.  I think this set will make it much easier!  I’ll keep playing around with it and sharing my creations with you.  For this card, I used Dapper Denim, Lemon-Lime Twist and Real Red for my color blocks.  The images are all stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  These are layered on Whisper White and I went with Basic Gray for my base.  I added 3 Metallic Enamel Stars to finish off the card.   Pretty simple and straight forward.

I’d love to hear what you think!

A Little Panda Party

Hi!  Happy New Year!  I hope the end of 2017 was good to you and that 2018 grants you health and happiness!   The end of the year was a bit busy for me, sorry I haven’t posted in a few weeks.

Stampin’ Up! kicks off 2018 with a new Occasions Catalog (we had to say goodbye to the Holiday Catalog) and to our Favorite Time of Year – Sale-A-Bration!   You’ll find links to both catalogs in the sidebar to the right.

Today, I have a card using the Sale-A-Bration set, Party Panda.  I love this set!

Birthday, Party Panda, Stampin' Up!, SU!, SAB2018

Isn’t this little guy just adorable??  I actually did a Live Facebook Demonstration on how to make this card if you are interested.  You’ll find it on my page here.

My colors are Lemon-Lime Twist, Basic Black and Whisper White.  The base is 4 1/4 x 11″ score at 5 1/2″.  The Designer Paper strips are from Pick a Pattern and are 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.  The Lemon Lime Strips are 5/8″ x 5 1/2″.  The Panda was stamped in Black Archival Ink and the balloon was colored with the Lemon Lime Twist marker.  The sentiment is also stamped in Basic Black  Archival ink on a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist card stock.  The flag end was punched with the Triple Banner punch.  The stars are from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack.

The stamp set is FREE with a $50 (prior to S/H and tax in the USA) purchase.
