Going for the Gold with the GDP!

This week the Global Design Project#109 is hosting a Color Challenge.  Here it is:

Global Design Project #109

And here is my entry:Deck the Halls for the GDP

The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits dies make making Christmas cards a snap! (And you can bundle and save 10%!)  The perfectly coordinating images and intricately detailed dies make it look like I’ve spent hours on this card, but it was easy enough to mass produce a lot of these cards in a short time period.  The Merry Music DSP makes for a nice background and the gold doilies add the right amount of bling with over-doing it.  (The Merry Music DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale going on thru October 31st.)

Want to know a little secret?  I actually designed this card last week for my #WorldCardMakingDay class.  As I sat down to write this post, I saw the GDP announced their Color Challenge and since I hadn’t shared this project yet, and the colors just fit this color challenge exactly, well, if the shoe fits….   Sometimes things just fall into place perfectly.

I highly recommend this product suite!  If you can only get 1 bundle or suite from the Holiday catalog, it would be a tough choice between this Merry Little Christmas product suite and the Quilted Christmas product suite.  Both have an awesome stamp set and coordinating framelit dies that can be used for more than just Christmas, and both have a complimentary array of embellishments.  If you missed my earlier posts showing the Quilted Christmas product suite, please click here and here.

Take a few minutes to head over to the Global Design Project to see all the awesome designs.

Here is another look at my card, and the supply list you’ll need to recreate this card yourself.  Click Here to shop my online store for any supplies.  Deck the Halls for the GDP

I’m still Quilting!

I just can’t put down the new Quilted Christmas suite of products!  I’ve already made quite a few Christmas cards using this set, (you can see a simple Quilted Christmas card here and even watch a video of how to make it!).  Today I wanted to make something using Autumn colors for the TicTacToeChallenge, and I’m still Quilting!  Who says the Quilted Christmas suite is just for Christmas?  Look what I made:I'm Still Quilting for Autumn!

TIC, TAC TOE CHALLENGE #16

For this challenge I used the diagonal from upper right to lower left; Autumn colors, paper piece and Free.

TTTC16My quilt square adorns a mini pizza box.     The autumn colors came from the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper.  The Quilt Builder Framelit dies make easy work of paper piecing.For free I chose to add metallic, which you can see is the sewing needle cropped from gold foil sheets.

Let’s take a closer look at the paper piecing.  paper piecing

Let there be CAKE!

And cake without calories is the best kind! 

I’m excited today for two reasons;  first I got to break out one of my new stamp sets, Icing on the Cake!  Yeah, always fun, right?  Second, I get to play along with the Global Design Project this week!  And if the designers over there like my entry enough, I may even get the distinct honor of being their Guest Designer!  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that they like my entry as they are sorting through all of the entries this week!  I think that would be so cool!

So here’s the Color Challenge from GDP:

GLobal Design Challenge 093

I just love these colors together – so bright and playful!!!  Here is my entry:

Birthday cake

So many different techniques and textures came together to make this card.

The Recipe:

This card started like so many others; a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White card base with a few layers, in this case Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party.  That was followed by another layer of Whisper White which is supporting panel for my focal point; the awesome layer cake!  The bottom layer of the cake features a scrap of the Berry Burst Fresh Floral Designer Series paper, the middle layer is a scrap of Whisper White cardstock embossed with our new Embossing Paste that was colored with Lemon Lime ink, and decorative masks.  The Top layer is a scrap of whisper white cardstock that was stamped in Pool Party ink with the polka dots from the retired Celebrate Today stamp set.  Each layer was topped with a line of frosting from the Icing on the Cake stamp set.  A sweet little In Color Bitty Bow in Berry Burst tops it all.

The sentiment was heat embossed in White Embossing Powder on a scrap of Berry Burst cardstock.  I think being chosen as a guest designer would be the icing on the cake!

If you like my cake, please leave a comment for me.  Then be sure to head over the Global Design Project to see all the other entries.  The judges sure will have their work cut out for them!

The Icing on the Cake stamp set is going to be so versatile and I’m sure I’ll be reaching for it quite a lot for upcoming birthdays.  If you want to order this stamp set, or any of the items on your wish list, then you’ll want to make sure you take advantage of our Bonus Days promotion going on now.

Getting my Creativity on with The Paper Players

A cool color challenge

I got so many new stamps and such this week and I want to use them all!  But since I can only use one, or two, stamp sets at a time, I will have to carve out time each day to make something creative!  The color challenge from the Paper Players served to stretch my creativity and I’m so glad I played along!  Here is the color palette I had to work with:

The honest truth is that I probably never would have paired these colors on my own, but I forced myself to use them.  That got me thinking that, other than a floral, I would have to use 3 of something – one for each color.  Looking thru my new stamps for something that would work, the clothespins wrapped in baker’s twine from the Crafting Forever stamp set would be perfect!  I played with a layout and ultimately, this is what I came up with: Bakers Twine from Crafting ForeverI used the new Pinewood Planks TIEF to add texture to the background layer of Pool Party.  Then a layer of Lemon Lime Twist card stock behind the main Whisper White panel repeats the Lemon Lime splattered on that panel.  Touches of Texture was used for the splatters.   The saying is stamped in Pool Party ink.  Each clothespin wrapped in Baker’s Twine is stamped in the three colors from the Color Challenge: Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party, and then fussy cut.  The new Mini Dimensionals propped up these little guys with no trouble!  (Thank you, Stampin’ UP! for added those mini’s – they are the Best.Thing.Ever!)

Do you like my entry to the Paper Players?   I really, really love how this card turned out, and I have the Paper Players to thank for that!  This  really stretched my creativity but I’m so glad I participated!  Hop over to the Paper Players and see what others did with this color challenge.  But before you do, please leave me a comment and tell me what YOU think of my project.

Then make sure to come back here again because I have something juicy and zesty to share with you! I have a class tomorrow night so I may not be to write another blog post tomorrow,  even though I have my project ready to share. (I’ll try to remember to snap some photos and share them on my Facebook page.  My class is centered on the Color Theory bundle and we’ll be making some cool cards just in time for summer reading!)  Remember, if you want to get any of the products I used tonight, you can click on the item below, or just click here to start shopping.  A host code for June is listed to the right for any order you place with me that is less than $150 dollars.  Thanks,

Happy Stampin’ Friends,

My Favorite Daisy -the Delightful Daisy bundle

Do you follow me on Facebook?  If you don’t, you missed out on seeing my bestie fav, My Favorite Daisy, that I made with new catalog products.  So click here to  Like my page right now.  I’ll wait.  Ahh, all done.  Now, you won’t miss another thing from me again!

Back to my favorite card.  The wood grain designer series paper was one of the things calling my name the loudest!  And that Daisy stamp and punch!  And the embellishments and ribbon.  Combine it with the luscious patterned Designer Paper in the Delightful Daisy suite and mix it all together and what do you get?  This:

Delightful Daisy and Woodgrain

Don’t you just love this?  The Wood Textures DSP is so realistic looking, and the patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP reminds me of wall paper.  The gorgeous Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon provides the perfect way to cover the seam where these two papers met.

The star of the show is the Delightful Daisy!  This stamp set and punch bundle has been uber popular since making it’s debut at the OnStage event in April where it was available as a pre-order for demonstrators.  As such, the Daisy Punch is currently on backorder and expected to be available at the end of the month, along with the Faceted  Gems (clear and gold) .  The Daisy Delight stamp set is available.

Did you notice the cute little tag? Of course you did!  It’s from the Wood Crate Framelits die set.  The sentiment is from Wood Words stamp set ( I used a marker to isolate and stamp each word individually to make it fit on the tag), and that gorgeous Copper 1/8″ ribbon adds the finishing touch!

I think the Daisy Delight product suite is going to be one of your favorites too!  You can see other projects I made with the Daisy Bundle here.  Please place your order for this bundle as soon as it becomes available again, so you are assured of getting it.  Now that you follow me on Facebook, I’ll be sure to keep you updated of the status of the punch, the bundle, the Faceted Gems and the 1/8″ Copper trim.

Thanks for hanging out in  My Stampin Space with me today.   I hope you enjoy it here. Please leave me a comment at the end of this post and tell me what you think of this card.  I love to hear from you!

And thanks for shopping with me when you need to place orders for your stampin’ supplies.  I’m always grateful!  I like to show my thanks by sending an email or even a handmade ‘thank you’ card in the mail, but when you select “No Contact”, I don’t even know who placed that order!  So a big ‘thank you’ to who placed an order – I don’t know who you are, but I’m still thankful for you!

See you, and Happy Stampin!

Coffee is Happiness

When I first saw this sketch challenge from Case This Sketch, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do!  The problem?  Everything I wanted to use to make it was in transit.  Hurry up, Mr. UPS-man!  So he got here today, and this is what I made!

Coffee is Happiness

And here is the sketch that inspired it:

Don’t you just LOVE this Coffee Break Designer Series Paper?

Coffee is Happiness

It’s so retro, and while I usually don’t gravitate towards paper with a busy design, I just Love this!  Maybe it’s all the different types of coffee pots and cups.  The polka dot pattern is just plain fun and playful!  Then there’s the coffee cup itself.  It’s so realistic looking thanks to the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups framelit dies.  (Bundle and Save 10%!)  The lid popped on in a snap (no worries about spills either!)  The corrugated cardboard sleeve keeps my hand from getting burned and it makes a nice place for the oval die cut featuring the word “Happiness”.  I do believe that coffee = happiness, but the word “happiness” is cropped from the sentiment.  The rest of the sentiment is on the inside:

Happiness is coffee shared with a friend

How true, right?  And I’m glad that I can share this with my friends over at Case This Sketch.

And it makes me so happy so share MyStampinSpace with you!  I’m honored when you choose to spend time with me and hang out here at My Stampin’  Space.  Feel free to kick back and enjoy a cup of coffee while you’re here!  My hope is that you will be inspired to make your own paper projects  and that you’ll pick up some tips and tricks along the way.

If you want to  get this stamp set, or all of the products in the Coffee Break Suite, pg. 30-31, (there’s ribbons and corrugated elements, too!) please head over to  my online store.

I’ve gotten so many items in my delivery today and I can’t wait to share eeverything with you so please stop back again.  Like me on Facebook, and subscribe to my newsletter so you won’t miss a thing!

Happy Stampin,

Tabs For Everything, Even Birthdays!

One of my favorite perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting sneak peeks of new catalogs and products before everyone else and attending events, like OnStage in April in Richmond, VA, and getting FREE products just for attending!   One of the stamp sets I got is a set called Tabs For Everything, and it has a coordinating punch (which I didn’t get, but it’s on its way to  me now!)  You can save 10% when you purchase this as a Bundle.

This set has so much potential for making tabs when used with the coordinating punch, and I think it will be a match made in heaven paired with the new “Love Today” Planner Kit!  You can see how awesome the Planner is by watching the video here.

It also has great potential for making fabulous cards!  Like this one:Tabs For Everything - Even Birthdays!

I was inspired for the color combination of Night of Navy, Smokey Slate, and LemonLime Twist by the jacket a fellow was wearing the other day.  (I see Stampin’ Up! colors everywhere!)  I mentioned to a fellow stamper that I could make a card with those colors, and she said she couldn’t wait to see what I came up with!

I liked this card, and color combination so much that I decided to make another card in a similar color combination of Dapper Denim, Basic Grey and Lemon Lime Twist.  What do you think?

Tabs for Everything - Even Birthdays!

Here are the two colors side by side:

Tabs for everything - even birthdays!

So which color combination do you like best?  Leave me a comment with your choice.

Here are the color combinations for your reference:

Dapper Denim, Basic Gray and Lemon Lime Twist

Because this is a birthday card, I decided to enter this into The Paper Players challenge.  The Paper Players Challenge 347

See how well this fits into the challenge?  Simple, right?  You can click here or on the picture above to head over to the The Paper Players challenge and be inspired by all the other entries featuring Birthday themed projects.

I hope you’ll seriously add the new “Love Today” Planner Kit! and the Tabs For Everything Bundle to your next order.  You can click here to shop my online store.  Please use the Host Code shown on the top of this page.

Thanks for visiting me in My Stampin Space today.  Come again, the door is always open and the Keurig is always on, ready to brew you a fresh cup!

Happy Stampin,

Nancy
