Blackberry & Gold Big Day - Monday Montage


Woot! It's time for a Monday Montage Blog Hop! I have another card to share with you using the Big Day stamp set, which you can get for FREE from Sale-A-Bration. Have you checked out Sale-A-Bration yet? What is your favorite product so far?


One of the things that I love about this stamp set is how you can stack the sentiments on top of each other. If you are going to do this, I highly recommend you use a Stamp-a-ma-jig (even if using clear mount stamps). It will make it a gazillion times easier to perfectly line up the images. Just check out this video to see how it is done.


I've kinda become obsessed with the combination of Gold and Blackberry Bliss. The Gold Foil Vellum really just pops right off of the Blackberry Bliss background. You will noticed that I stamped my images in Blackberry Bliss and then colored them in. If you do this too, I want to give you a heads up that your color will smear (if you don't want it to smear, stamp in StazOn), so just be careful when coloring. Lastly, I stapled some Gold Sequin Trim and a little twine bow to give this card a finished look.

Birthday Bows

Happy Friday! I have my second card using the Big Day stamp set to share with you today. Remember to stay tuned to see all four cards and details on how you could get the supplies to make them! 

One of my favorite items in the Occasions Catalog is the Bow Builder Punch. It creates such a cute little bow that is perfect for everything. I think it has quickly become a favorite of others too!


This card is just like the one on page 12 in the Occasions Catalog. The card is so cute, there was no reason to mess with perfection! I made my bows out of some Designer Series Paper and Gold Glimmer Paper. Check out this video from Stampin' Up! on how easy it is to make the bows. I prefer to use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue when making mine. The Glimmer Paper bow is a little tricky to put together, so use a clothespin to hold it together while the glue dries.


This happy birthday stamp is from the Big Day set (get it for free during Sale-A-Bration!). I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss and then colored in "birthday" with my Tangelo Twist Stampin' Write Marker. Don't stress out about the lines around the edge of the card. They are drawn free hand with markers and not supposed to be perfect.

Adorable Lumber Jack Box - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I'm really excited to share this project with you today, it is one of my favorites! When I first seen the Wood You Be Mine? stamp set, I was in love. This stamp set is so stinking adorable and is meant to be paired with the Hardwood background stamp.


I decided the stamps would be perfect for a box. (You should know by know that I love a good treat box.) The box was a breeze to make because I used two treat bags cut out with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. I just had to cut and score a piece of card stock for the bottom.


I stamped my lumber jack in StazOn and used my Aqua Painter to color him with Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, and Night of Navy. The lumber jack is stamped separate from the tag and cut out so that he literally stands out. I used my Basic Black and Calypso Coral Stampin' Write Markers to get two colors on the "Timber!" sentiment. 


The box is actually made out of Crumb Cake Card Stock. I embossed the Hardwood image in Early Espresso and then sponged White Craft Ink over the whole thing to get a great white washed wood look. Some of the awesome Washi Sheets punched with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch easily ties the box to the Calypso Coral from the tag. The Painted Blooms Cotton Twine does the same thing and is a nice pretty touch.


Ok. Now, let me talk to you about this bag that goes inside the bag. It is awesome! I first stamped the cello bag with the wood image in White StazOn, and it was great. Then I had all those little washi hearts hanging around and decided they needed to go on the bag too! The picture doesn't really show how awesome those hearts and stamped images are on this bag. It was the perfect touches to send this project over the top!

Celebrate Your Big Day

Hey everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? I spent the weekend in Lancaster, PA shooting archery. It was a great time with friends, and I shot pretty good! I also started my last semester at SVSU last week! As I am officially job hunting, it is going to be a crazy busy, but good semester. Oh! That reminds me! You guys should all check out my new graphic design website. I would love your thoughts on it. Ok, on to the project I have to share with you today.


One of my favorite stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration (which means you can get it for FREE!) is Big Day. It is an awesome stamp set for everyone's birthday! This particular card I copied right from page 12 of the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I just switched up the colors to Soft Sky, Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist, and Gold.


I stamped the "Cake" sentiment twice to create some awesome dimension and make the "celebrate" pop off the card. To get that look for the Gold Ribbon, fold it in thirds and just staple it to your card front.

Do you love this card and stamp set? I have three more cards to share with you using this stamp set and color scheme. Once I post them all, I will share an offer with you on how you can get the supplies to make the cards! So, stay tuned!

Painted Blooms Stationary Set - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Are you ready for another Artisan Design Team blog hop??? Today we are sharing our projects that will be featured on Stampin' Up!'s Facebook tomorrow. I have a great little stationary set that I want to show you. I think you will really love it!


A few note cards and a coordinating case makes for a beautiful stationary set. Plus it is super easy to make and everyone loves it!


I decorated the case with the most beautiful piece of Designer Series Paper ever! The Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper is so striking by itself, the only embellishment I added was some Blackberry Bliss Ribbon to make the edges pretty.


The Full Wood Mount Cases nicely hold 6 to 10 one layer Note Cards & Envelopes. I also added a little pocket made with the Mini Treat Bag Die to hold notes and a matching pen. I put a piece of Soft Sky Card Stock on the reverse side of the Designer Series Paper (instead of letting the reverse side show) of the case so the cards and pocket could really pop.


The note cards I made are SUPER simple. The Painted Petals stamp set makes it so easy to create gorgeous cards with just Whisper White Card Stock and a few ink pads. I added some touches of the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine to keep the look soft but add some interest. This whole little stationary set makes for a great gift! I know I would love to receive a set of thank you cards ready to go!
