3D Thursday and FREE Project Sheet!


Good Morning and welcome to 3D Thursday! We are a group of demonstrators that create 3D projects for you twice a month! This week was my turn to create and I came up with this handsome duo:


Who doesn't love chocolate right? I filled a bucket full of mini Hershey chocolates and added the D-A-D die-cut letters on lollipop sticks and poked them amongst the chocolates:




The card coordinates with the treat bucket and oh do I love our new A Good Man stamp set. The images are just incredible. I colored both images from both projects with Stampin' Blends Markers:


And the designer paper is from the new 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack. Just love this soft gingham pattern:

My May Creative Challenge for my Team!


See this cup? It's my favorite cup. Why am I showing you my favorite coffee cup? Because that's what I used for inspiration for today's project. I created a project using a coffee cup for inspiration because I am challenging my team for the month of May to join in and do the same. A winner will be chosen from the entries and that person will receive their choice of a stamp set up to $25 in value from me!

This is the card I came up with using the inspiration coffee cup:


I matched up the colors by using Blueberry Bushel, Balmy Blue and Whisper White. I even used my Stamparatus Tool with the  Around The Corner stamp set, to line up a vertical line with the medallion image you see on the right. The image kind of resembles the image on my cup...close enough!


I love the splatter image that I used from the Beauty Abounds stamp set. The combination of both stamp sets really works well together. I finished off my card with some bling of course. I added a few Rhinestone Jewels around the sentiment area and around the medallions:

May Team Meeting and NEW In Colors!


Good Morning! I am so glad you stopped in to visit today. By now you must have heard that Stampin' Up! is introducing five new In Colors starting June 4th. That's when the new Annual Catalog debuts. The colors are all so beautiful and the names make me smile. Here's the listing and you can follow the colors with the photo at the top by starting with the row in the back:
  • Pretty Peacock
  • Seaside Spray
  • Terracotta Tile
  • Rococo Rose
  • Purple Posy
I created all of these cards for my monthly Team Meeting. Each month, we gather via Zoom which is "live" so we can chat together. We go over Stampin' Up! news, promotions and other important events. Once that part of my meeting is complete, we then head over to our private Facebook Group page and I stamp with my team, which is also "live". 


You can see individual photos of each color below. All of the cards are identical except for the In Color and the sentiment:








The flowers were all created with the new Perennial Flower Punch. I wanted to show how you can create a flower without stamping the flower image. What I did is punch three, curl the petals with a Bone Folder and stack them. I added a Clear Faceted Gem in the center of each flower. All of the sentiments are from different stamp sets.



Want to join in on our team fun? You can! Did you know by joining, you get to choose $125 worth of Stampin' Up! products and pay only $99 and FREE SHIPPING! You can't go wrong. Most of my team members are happy shoppers and are on my team only because they want to save 20% off everything that they purchase.

Greek Isles Achievers May Blog Hop!


Hello and welcome to a May Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop. I am so glad you are visiting me today and I hope you'll visit my teammates. This month we are all using Stampin' Up! products from the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and showing you some Sneak Peeks. For today's project, I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and added in the No Line Coloring Technique. You like?


I started out by stamping all of the flower images with Sahara Sand Ink that was first stamped on a piece of scrap paper and without re-inking, stamped on Watercolor Paper. This technique works so well on Watercolor Paper. I used an Aqua Painter to add the base colors and then a Blender Pen to add highlights. Once everything was colored, I went one step further and colored the flowers with Clear Wink Of Stella....oh my word! It is so pretty in person!


I think I am in LOVE with this technique!
You need to try it too!
I bet you'll love it!




Now it's time to visit the next person participating in the blog hop. You are now visiting Debbie Henderson so click on the name below mine!

Control Freaks May Blog Hop!


We are saying "Goodbye to Old Friends" for our Control Freaks May Blog Hop. I am so sad to see some of our products retiring but that means we have new products coming! You may have arrived here from LeeAnn Greff's blog or you may be starting the blog hop with me. Either way, I will direct you to the next person at the end of my post.

For my cards this month, I opted to use the following retiring products:
  • Dragonfly Dreams stamp set
  • Detailed Dragonfly Dies
  • Hexagons Embossing Folder
These are my two projects:



I decided to stick with black, white & yellow on both projects as it's one of my favorite color combinations. Yellow always looks so striking against black and of course adding the die-cut bumblebees was perfect for these three colors. Can't you just hear them buzzing now?

Let's look at my first card:


I used the Hexagons Embossing Folder on both cards. You can see the embossing on the Basic Black layer on this card. The two smaller layers were cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies and the die-cut dragonfly was colored with Clear Wink Of Stella. It's gorgeous!


Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Basic Black Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Emboss with the Hexagons Embossing Folder and glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Pineapple Punch Cardstock cut with the 4" x 2-5/8" Rectangle Stitched Dies and glue to card front to the left and angled. 
  • Layer #4: Whisper White Cardstock cut with the 4" x 2-5/8" Rectangle Stitched Dies. Stamp the dotted image at the top using Pineapple Punch Ink. Stamp the sentiment at the bottom using Memento Black Ink. Glue to card front to the right and angled. 
  • Dragonfly: Cut out one dragonfly with the dies and Basic Black Cardstock. Color with the Clear Wink Of Stella and glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
Card #2:


How could you not love these adorable bumblebees? My hubby is actually terrified of them so maybe he would beg to differ. What's neat about them too is you can stamp the yellow image first and then glue the die-cuts on top so the yellow peeks out. You can see what I mean here in this photo:

Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Basic Black Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Pineapple Punch Cardstock embossed using the Hexagons Embossing Folder. Set aside.
  • Layer #4: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 1-3/4". Stamp the sentiment using Memento Black Ink, centered at the bottom of the strip. Glue to Layer #3 at an angle and trim the ends.  Glue to card base. 
  • Bees: Stamp the bee image on the white cardstock strip twice above the sentiment. Stamp a third bee on a scrap of white. Cut out (3) die-cut bees using Basic Black Cardstock with the bee die. Glue all three of them over the stamped bees. Hand-cut the bee on the scrap and glue to the hexagon background.
