I may have gone a little overboard on the number of variations I made for last night's Mystery Stamping, but once I pulled out the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper, I just couldn't stop! I love, love, LOVE this paper, but I realized that I've hardly used it. That's because I love the poppies in other color combinations as well, like the Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, and Mint Macaron ones I did Monday. But that means that there were tons of color combinations to try. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
The rest of my cards for this sketch use the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper. While the stamps are carrying over into the new catalog (yay!) the paper will be retiring.
For the first two cards, I water colored the poppies using Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss ink and an Aqua Painter. Remember, when water coloring, you should always use a Stazon ink pad.
More Tuesday night Mystery Stamping means another Wednesday card sketch! This time it includes another fun fold for you to flip out over. For these cards, the front greeting area folds out to allow the card to open and reveal a second greeting are on the interior.

Spring has sprung! Even though it doesn't feel like it yet here in Michigan. To celebrate, I made three cards using the Thoughtful Blooms Sale-A-Bration stamp set. From Simple using only stamps, inks, and paper, to Chic using punches and ribbon, all the way to Oh là là adding the Stitched So Sweetly dies. All of the cards use cardstock in Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Whisper White as well as Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron ink.
Wow! It's been a crazy time these last few days, hasn't it? I have been pretty quiet on the blog because I have been busy transitioning my college class to online learning. I'm hoping to step-it-up a bit though in the next few days and bring you lots of great ideas for stamping and crafting while we're all hunkered down at home.
Last week (was it only last week!?), during my Facebook Virtual Stamp Class, I shared how to make this cute candy bar wrapper. It'd make a great little gift for someone and is very easy to make.
I adhered the Country Club DSP to the piece of Night of Navy and folded and scored both. Then I attached the back flaps to each other using Tear & Stick tape. I adhered the stamped oval to the front.
Next, I punched a hole through the front and back layers of the Night of Navy cardstock using the retired slot punch. You could use a 1/2" circle punch instead. I threaded a piece of Real Red cotton ribbon through both holes going from front to back. Then, I began to slide my Hershey's candy bar into the wrapper so that the red ribbon that passed between the front and back was pushed down to the bottom of the wrapper. When the candy bar was fully inserted in the wrapper, I tied the ends of the ribbon with rushed Daffodil Delight ribbon and Linen Thread.
The directions may sound a little complicated, but I think when you are putting it together it will all make sense.
Have you seen the NEW Flowering Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper? This awesome paper is available FREE through the end of March with any $50 order. It is white with foil designs that you can leave white or color to match your project. I've been having so much fun coloring it that I couldn't stop at 2 or 3 cards. All of these cards feature Sale-A-Bration stamp sets that you could also choose FREE with a $50 order through the end of March, The Gang's All Meer, Sending You Thoughts, and Thoughtful Blooms. I love Sale-A-Bration because you can order paper, ink, and accessories and get the stamps for FREE.
Remember that Sale-A-Bration items are only available while supplies last. Accessories, like DSP, are especially prone to selling out. If this DSP is on your wish list, I wouldn't wait to order!
