Global Stamping Friends – Meant to Be

Happy New Year my Friends! I’m so excited to be introducing all the new that is going on today. We have a brand new spring catalog out and the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Our theme this month is Meant to Be and I gave it a lot of thought and what’s Meant to Be is for YOU to earn FREE product! During Sale-A-Bration, you can earn the Hostess Stamp set, Punch Party, for FREE when you place an order for or have a party that’s over $300. This exclusive stamp set coordinates with three different punches, the Heart Punch Pack, the Rectangular Postage Stamp, and the Double Oval Punch. I’ve made a few samples using it today.

The colors are Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose. All of these colors are in the Oh So Ombre designer series paper you see here and is FREE in the Sale-A-Bration brochure with a $50 order. I have absolutely fallen in love with this paper.

I hope you found inspiration with this cute hostess set today. Thank you for hopping along with us. Up Next is Lisa Ann Bernard. Click on the Next arrow below to see what she’s made for us.

The New Catalog is LIVE tomorrow!

I’m so excited to say that the Spring Stampin’ Up! Catalog will be LIVE tomorrow!!! And I have a treat for you! An Ice Cream Corner Suite treat that is! The new Ice Cream Corner Suite is full of vibrant, exciting colors that make fantastic cards for everyone. I love that it’s not only for birthdays but can also make beautiful thank you cards.

Today I am showing you a thank you card that I’m posting on Kylie’s International Blog Highlights. You can check out other people’s creations and vote for your favorites at this link.

The different patterns from the Designer Series Paper make for some fun cards. What did I tell you about all the colors!

The colors I used were Pool Party and Bermuda Bay. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out the sentiment piece. The Pool Party Sheer Ribbon and the Elegant Faceted Gems are both from the Annual Catalog.

I am offering a monthly Birthday Card Club starting in January. We will by using this suite this month. All the details can be found HERE. I will be making a card kit of 4 cards with a printable tutorial.

One of a Kind Friendship

Hi Friends! Today I decided to join a couple challenges to get my creative juices flowing. I’ve taken about a week off and I’ve got new stuff to play with but before all that, I’m making this winter-y friendship card. I really love it so I hope you do too!

The inspiration for this card comes from two different challenges. The first one is the TGIF Challenge. It was a winter-y, snow-y challenge. I used my beloved Snowflake Splendor suite.

You can head over to the blog and see all the entries by clicking the image above.

The second challenge that inspired me was a new one to me on Facebook called Creating with the Crafty Medic. I just stumbled upon her page and projects one day and was blown away. This week her challenge is a sketch.

Here’s a close up of the bling because it’s oh so pretty! I have a great friend that I’m mailing this off to. I hope you were inspired by these challenges. Go join along and get crafty!

Your BFF,

Join me in January for my Birthday Card Club. You can find all the details HERE.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – Gray Granite, Real Red, Cinnamon Cider

Welcome to December’s Colour Combo Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn from California in the United States. Our colors this month are Gray Granite, Real Red and Cinnamon Cider. I decided to take those colors and make hot chocolate packet holders. I made a bunch of these last year for a group of church kids and they are so easy and such a hit that I will be making them again this year.

I used the Nothing’s Better Than bundle for the elements and the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the letters. This hot chocolate pouch is so easy to make. I have the tutorial below. I’ve also added a piece to the inside for a sentiment and a place to write a note.

Directions (all measurements are in inches):
Gray Granite cardstock: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 1 1/2 and 5 1/2 on the 11 inch side.
Real Red cardstock: 4 x 5 1/4, 3 1/2 x 4 and 1 1/4 x 4 1/4
Whisper White cardstock: 3 3/4 x 5
Heartwarming Hugs dsp: 3 x 3 3/4 and 1 x 4
Whisper White for the Stitched So Sweetly frame

  1. Fold the cs in half and then fold the smaller flap down towards you.
  2. Adhere the dsp to the coordinating layers and adhere to the pouch. Stamp the sentiment onto the piece of whisper white cs and adhere to the biggest real red cs piece.
  3. Stamp the cup inside onto Cinnamon Cider cardstock and attach to a piece of foam adhesive sheet. Cut out the cup from the Love You More Than dies and the YUM! from the Playful alphabet dies.
  4. Stamp the steam onto the Stitched So Sweetly die piece and arrange the cup and letters to your liking. Attach a few In-Color gems to the piece.
  5. Wrap the Whisper White twine around the pouch to hold it closed and tie a bow.
  6. Attach the stitched die to the front using dimensionals. Stuff everything inside 🙂

I hope you will make a few of these to give away in gift bags along with gifts. It’s thoughtful and hot chocolate is very needed!
Thank you so much for joining us today. Up next is Tricia Butts. Hop along to all the creators and check out their inspiration.
