Love What You Do Bundle – Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop

Happy May 5th!!!!

Playing with new stuff for Create with Connie and Mary and our Saturday blog hop.

Our theme this week features the Love What You Do Bundle.

It will be in the upcoming catalog, but is available for purchase now. It’s a really pretty suite of products. You can see them here.

I went with a brighter card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Love What You Do, Got To Have It All Bundle, Layering Circles Framelits, Share What You Love DSP, Rich Razzleberry 1/4 Velvet Ribbon, Pearlized Doilies, Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, CCMC, Stitched Shapes FramelitsThe colors in this suite are absolutely gorgeous!

My base here is Rich Razzleberry. I layered on the new color, Grapefruit Grove, then a piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.

It’s hard to see, but the Grapefruit grove was embossed on the ends with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder.

We are all creating cards using the suite pf products! You’ll be so inspired! Go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown. They’ll have awesome creations!

A beautiful card using some really loved products. Sadly, some are retiring Stampin’ Up products.

My favorite and retiring, the flower framelit and the Designer Series Paper. These are two key items that make card creating quite easy!

Paper Folded in Half

Hello my Thursday friends!

I have a wonderful card created for Create with Connie and Mary and our newest color challenge –

Lovely colors!

And, I used them to create this lovely birthday card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Birthday Wit, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Circles Framelits, Sweet Soiree DSP, Balloon Builder Punch, Journaling Pens, CCMC

Fun, colorful! A card suitable for anyone – young, old, male, female!

I started by stampin the greeting in two colors, Old Olive and Calypso Coral. I hand cut Happy Birthday from one of the images. The other one, I framelit cut close to the words. That way, adding the Happy Birthday, it’ll hang over the edge!

I added those to a Whisper White card base with a full 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of Designer Series Paper on the front. The balloons added a nice ‘birthday’ touch!

Check out the other Design team cards on our blog. Want to create a card and show off your work? You can do so on our Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you there!

We Create – March Blog Hop

My third post for today, Three Post Thursday, is another blog hop for We Create. 

Our theme is to create a card, then recreate it again, adding elements to ‘step it up’, make it fancy.

I made this card last week for a card challenge –

libbystamps, stampin up, Cool Treats, Layering Circles Framelits, Metallic Enamel Shapes, Sweetheart Embossing Folder, We Create

It was a total hit! I loved it sooo much that I wanted to feature it on my Card Buffet for February. However, the 6×6 pack of Designer Series Paper wasn’t quite enough for a whole class.

The whole card front uses most of a 6×6 page. This is both sides of the paper, flipped.

I came up with this modified idea –

libbystamps, stampin up, Cool Treats, Layering Circles Framelits, Metallic Enamel Shapes, Sweetheart Embossing Folder, We Create

Equally as adorable too! And, I was able to get more cards for the four sheets I had!  Everyone who wanted to make the card was able to! Yay!

The top of the card’s texture is made from the Sweetheart embossing folder. The pie covers the flat heart portion! That texture resembles the polka dots – perfect!

The adorable pie was created using a Sale-a-Bration folder called Basket Weave. You can can get that free from me by placing a qualifying order. I’d be happy to help you with that.

Another nifty tip, the heart was gold and I colored it using a Blends marker! Instant matching!

libbystamps, stampin up, Cool Treats, Layering Circles Framelits, Metallic Enamel Shapes, Sweetheart Embossing Folder, We Create

Not sure which one is cuter! Both I think!

As this is a continuous blog hop, check out the next designer, Kris, on the creative trail!

Sure Do Love You

Happy Tuesday! I created a card for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday today.

We have a new sketch every week, but we create on a team every other week. I just loved our sketch this week and wanted to join in the fun –

I just had to play along! Isn’t this a great layout to follow?

I pulled out some Sale-a-bration Designer Paper, Bubbles & Fizz, and started creating from there. Next thing you know, I had made this –libbystamps, stampin up, TSOT, Sure Do Love You, Lots to Love Box Framelits, Sure Do Love You Bundle, Layering Circles Framelits, Sweet & Sassy Framelits, Bubbles & Fizz DSP, Sale-a-Bration 2018This was a lot of fun to put together. I used The Layering Circles Framelits along with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (hearts) and cut the Basic Grey circle out. I also cut a heart from Smoky Slate as well.

I stamped the sentiment and added a small piece of ribbon shimmer ribbon underneath it. Simply done. I layered everything on the Smokey Slate card base.

Have I inspired you yet? Take a look at the other cards from the Try Stampin on Tuesday Design team. You can link a card on our blog or on our Facebook page too! See you there!

Let’s Celebrate Sale-a-Bration Style

Happy Thursday! Time for a Create with Connie and Mary sketch!

We alternate between a color challenge and a layout. This week, we have a color challenge to inspire you –

As always, some great colors!

I’m playing with new paper and a Sale-a-Bration framelit set, yes, you read that correct!

(Sale-a-Bration is a Stampin’ Up promotion where you purchase $50 in merchandise and receive a free item of your choice.)

libbystamps, stampin up, Amazing You, Celebrate You, Layering Circles Framelits, Sweet Soiree DSP, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Occasions 2018, Sale-a-Bration, CCMC

This turned out fun, sweet, cute…..

The Designer Series Paper, Sweet Soiree, is soo pretty with its silver accents! All the sheets are really thick with one side of the paper being patterns with silver foil in them and the other being just pretty patterns! The other side is equally as pretty and hard to decide which side to use!

The word ‘celebrate’ is a Sale-a-Bration framelit option, Celebrate You. It coordinates with the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Amazing You. So many wonderful free Sale-a-Bration options this year!

Pull out your stamps, ink and paper and join us this week with our challenge. You can link up your creations on our Facebook page. Check out the other Design Team cards on our blog.
