Criss-Cross Sunshine!

I hope you're ready for a new card!

This one follows the challenge CCREW0414DF:  Use Watercolor Wonder designer series papers, or the colors of Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, & Tangerine Tango.   Well that was easy ... I'm a big fan of the Watercolor Wonder dsp!  And for that reason, I challenged myself to use designs from the series that I had not previously used ... the other sides of the papers.
Just about the time I was working on this one, I learned that a sweet friend had suffered a heart attack at a stamp show, which resulted in surgery.  So, this became a card with a purpose, with her in mind.  Although she works right in the heart of the stamping industry, she's not really a stamper herself.  I purposely created with colors and a style that she doesn't normally see every day.  

I haven't made a criss-cross card in a long time, and I thought it would show off the designer series paper nicely.  Cardstock & ink colors were so easy to choose by just following the colors in the Watercolor Wonder papers!  That's really one of the easiest things about Stampin' Up! ... easy-peasy coordination.

Okay, my stampy-crafty friends!  I'll be back very soon to share another something from my stampin' table with you.  In the meantime, I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration that might lead you to a new creation on your crafty table!

Today I'm sharing a card that we made in last weekend's class.  Originally I designed it as a 'Thank You' card for my upline, but who can resist the Sweet Sorbet papers?  I love this dsp!

In class, ladies got to use the Big Shot for both die cutting with the Banners framelits, as well as embossing with the Polka Dots folder.  Just a short line of piercing was added at the top of the sentiment banner.  

I appreciate your visits.  Please feel welcome to pause a moment to say "Hello" one of these days!
Happy day to you!

Fringe & Banner Mega Bottle Cap

Still hoping that yesterday's "sharin' of the green" will begin to work some weather wonders & bring on some Spring!

While we wait, I'll share a 3D decor idea with you today!  Please don't tell me that I'm the only one who has a 'stash' of crafty items that is just ready & waiting to be brought out into the light.  Are there any brave stampers/scrappers out there willing to confess?

I'll go first.  This huge, 4-inch diameter 'bottle cap' has been amongst my alterables for too long, i.e. many months.   Now it's filled with little goodies and has its own spot here in my stampy zone.  The background paper is from the Watercolor Wonder dsp.  
Next, fringe scissors to the play table to create a happy two-color blossom, with leaves from the Secret Garden stamp set & dies.  The little 5-piece banner was a snap, from the Sale-A-Bration 'Banner Blast' stamp set and coordinating 'Banner' punch.  Tiny dots of Crystal Effect glued the banners to Linen Thread.  Then Mini Glue dots were used to adhere it all to the bottle cap's edges, with a couple of Candy Dots for good measure. 

In reality, this project has morphed one final time for better display here in my stampy classroom area.  The Taffeta Ribbon is great for wall hanging, but I've since removed that and it is now appearing on the magnetic display board here in the studio.

Okay ... Now it's your turn to confess to 'stashing' use-it-someday-goodies!

So glad you're here ... and I'd love to see you back again.   Hope you've found some inspiration for your own craftiness today!

Wasabi Birthday Wishes!

Welcome to March, everyone! 

It's been a crazy-busy time here for the past 2 1/2 weeks or more ... so I owe y'all a big apology for missing blog posts.  So off we go into our brand new month ... getting that much closer to finishing off this incredibly cold & icy & snowy & crazy winter!  Yay!!

Let's do it up in green!

Wild Wasabi green is the main color here, and it's CAS for an easy start.   I honestly adore the Watercolor Wonder designer series papers from the Occasions catalog.  This green chevron is just one of the several awesome papers in the set.  And, it will matches beautifully with your Gumball Green cardstock as well!  Marina Mist cardstock & ink are used in small amounts as an accent color.  'Subtles Candy Dots' are an easy little addition ... they're even self-adhesive!

See those bitty banners on the lower  portion?  The 'Banner Blast' stamp set (133554) and the 'Banner' punch ( 133519) are FREE Sale-A-Bration choices!

That's it for now!  I have several more creations to share here this month.   Hoping that you found some inspiration here today!
