My Inky Friends Stampin' Up! Blog Hop: Love it. Live it. Share it.


Welcome to My Inky Friends' Blog Hop! This month we are featuring crafty ideas using products from the brand new Occasions Catalog.  This catalog went live on January 3rd and runs through May 31, 2018. Should you get lost during the blog hop, you may find a list of participants on the Inky Friends blog page. You may have arrived from Shelley's blog, Miss Mad Stamper, where she featured the Hold on to Hope Bundle. I'm excited to show you what I created with the Bubble Over Bundle (146082) on page 32 of the Occasions Catalog. 
This set has just exploded on Pinterest and there are tons of ideas! I was inspired by Sarah Klass.  I did an emboss resist on the front of the card where I stamped the bubbles with clear Versamark on Whisper White cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. I sponged on rows of color starting at the bottom and sponging upward to leave some white space at the top. Can you see the clear bubbles toward the top? Those are the new Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes on page 33. The coordinating framelits cut out the bottles from the matching DSP in the SAB catalog (which you can get free with a $50 purchase).  Just Look at the surprise on the inside...
I used the Wood Textures DSP and Wood Crate Framelits. I made a similar card HERE where I used flowers instead. I just had to try it with the bottles. You can also make it without the DSP like this...
To coordinate with the crate theme, I created this little Valentine's Day treat. Remember these Nik-L-Nip wax mini drink bottles? Eight of them fit in a little cello bag. I added some SAB ribbon and made a little bottle top embellishment. The Happy Valentine's Day sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and fits perfectly within the Classic Label Punch. 


I created two traditional cards below. The left card does not use any Designer Series Paper. The images are all stamped.  The card on the right uses the Bubbles and Fizz DSP:
I just love the little bottle lid which you can cut out with the matching framelit. For the card above I stamped the images in the bottle caps. For the card below I cut them out with the DSP.
Here's another set of cards using this same layout, except I popped off the lid and used the straw.  You can see how it looks with different pieces of the Bubbles and Fizz DSP:

We Create Blog Hop - Step it Up February!



Hello February! Welcome to our Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who create a simple project and then a “stepped up” version on the first of every month. There are two Stampin' Up! events happening now: the 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs are live. The Sale-a-Bration (SAB) catalog offers free items that you can get with either a $50 or $100 purchase. You can click on the image on the right to upload a PDF version of each catalog. I'm featuring the Heart Happiness stamp and lovely Valentine's treat boxes stepped up with the new Brusho Crystal Colours. 
My simple treat box features the Mini Pizza Boxes (144645), just the right size for holding a cookie, 3" x 3" note cards or Valentine's candy. I created a clean Whisper White panel. I made the heart strip on the bottom with the die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. The two larger hearts were cut out with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits which coordinate with the Heart Happiness stamp set. 

Have you heard of Brusho Crystal Colour (144101)? You might miss it if you don't look carefully at page 26 of the Occasions Catalog. I created these stepped up boxes by first cutting out the larger heart and using it as a mask with repositionable tape. Brusho's are watercolor ink crystals. I just sprinkled red Brusho very lightly onto the paper and sprayed with water in a diagonal direction and let dry. I added an even tinier bit of yellow and sprayed with water. Once dry, I removed the heart mask and adhered at an angle to look like it is gently falling. The Valentine's sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. 

Each one is a little bit different. I created some Valentine's Day tags to go along with the treat boxes . . . 
I created a mask again with the heart and sprinkled on the Brusho Colours, sprayed with water and let dry. Once dry, I stamped the heart clusters from the Heart Happiness set using Real Red, and stamping off once for a lighter effect. 

I hope you enjoyed my creations. Please leave a comment and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for stopping by! To see what the other bloggers' stepped up cards look like, hop on over to my creative friend Julie's blog, See Julie Stamp by clicking the Next Blog button below:

My Inky Friends Blog Hop: Time to Sale-a-Brate!

https://myinkyfriends.blogspot.com/

Welcome to My Inky Friends' Blog Hop! This month's blog hop features the brand new Sale-a-Bration Catalog. Sale-a-Bration (SAB) is Stampin' Up's annual event where you earn free items from the SAB catalog with every $50 or $100 spent. SAB runs from January 3 - March 31st. Should you get lost during the blog hop, you may find a list of participants on the Inky Friends blog page


You may have arrived from Twila's blog, Stamp a Little Longer, where she featured the Happy Wishes SAB set. I'm featuring the cool and trendy Epic Celebrations stamp set found on page 12 of the SAB catalog. It's free with any $50 purchase. 
I used this fun color combo of Tranquil Tide, Soft Sky, Night of Navy and Whisper White. This card would be great for a teenager and would work for a boy or a girl. 
Here's a look at how I assembled all of the pieces. First I stamped the shoes with Memento on Night of Navy cardstock and colored them with a Whisper White watercolor pencil. I cut out random circles with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. The laced piece is a 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" strip of Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. I punched 6 holes with my Crop-a-Dile, added some white eyelets from my stash and laced the piece with Solid White Baker's Twine.
I stamped the sentiment by coloring on the stamp with Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy Stampin' Write markers. The featured shoes are stamped with Memento and colored with a Basic Gray watercolor pencil. 
I decorated the inside with extra pieces cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. The inside sentiment is stamped the same way as as the sentiment on the front using Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy Stampin' Write Markers on the stamp.
This matching gift card holder was created using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies. This set looks so cute with an iTunes gift card. Just glue the bottom portion of the circle down and the gift card slides nicely in place. Can you spot where I used all 6 stamps from the Epic Celebrations set in my projects (shoes, guitar, headphones, 2 sentiments and splatter dots)?

Thank you for stopping by. Please say hello and leave a comment. Now it's time to move ahead to see how Sarah used the Beautiful Peacock SAB stamp set. Hop on over to Sarah's Ink Spot to see what she created for us.

We Create January Blog Hop - Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Time!

Happy New Year! Welcome to our Blog Hop. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who create a simple project and then a “stepped up” version on the first of every month. Beginning January 3rd, there will be two Stampin' Up! events happening: The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs go live. The Sale-a-Bration (SAB) catalog has free items that you can get with either a $50 or $100 purchase. I'm featuring the Bubble Over Bundle which premiers in the Occasion Catalog. I'm also showing you the coordinating Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper which premiers in the SAB catalog and it's free with a $50 purchase. As a Stampin' Up Demonstrator we get to pre-order items which is a lot of fun! 

I used the Rock 'n Roll Technique on my simple version. I inked the bottle stamp with Lemon Lime Twist, then rolled the edges of the inked stamp on the Bermuda Bay ink pad then stamped. If you try this technique, always ink your stamp with the lighter color first so that you won't ruin your ink pad and roll in the darker color. The bottles were cut out with the coordinating framelits. I used the embossing blade on my trimmer to make the center border lines, then stamped the bubbles inside the lines.
I stepped it up by adding the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper which will be free in the SAB catalog with any $50 purchase. The framelits coordinate with the paper, so the only thing stamped here is the sentiment. The Basic Gray ribbon is also a SAB item, free with a $50 purchase in the Shimmer Ribbon pack which includes 3 different rolls. 
I couldn't stop crafting. I stepped it up a third time by creating a bubble stencil with one of the framelits and using the Shimmery White Embossing Paste. Once this dried, I sprayed the piece with water and sprinkled new Brush Crystal Colour (will be available in the Occasions Catalog, page 26) in orange and yellow and spritzed some more. 
I hope you enjoyed my creations. Please leave a comment and let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much for stopping by! To see what the other bloggers' stepped up cards look like, hop on over to my creative friend Julie's blog, See Julie Stamp by clicking the Next Blog button below:
