Kre8tors Blog Hop Memorable Mosaic


Hello crafters, this month's Kre8tor's Blog Hop theme is a color challenge! It's been a little bit since we've had a good challenge. Here is the theme background from our leader: "My inspiration for this month's theme is The Hood River Fruit Loop. It's a collection of farms in the Hood River Valley in Oregon, USA that offer fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, and other items straight off the farm. It's one of my favorite summer-time activities."

I selected these challenge colors for my design with the Memorable Mosaic stamp set: Grey Granite, Early Espresso, Petal Pink, Highland Heather, and Whisper White.


I really like the Subtle embossing folder and Flax ribbon with the textures in the font and willow tree.


I have a similar stamped image but changed up the layers in this card.


I used the Subtle embossing folder on the Highland Heather layer for this variation.


I hope you have enjoyed my cards and our color challenge.  Join me to see Tracy's design, click on the button below to hop over to her blog:

ICS Blog Hop A Wish for Everything


Hello crafters! Welcome to our Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop.  Our theme tonight is Beautiful Bundles.

My card is featuring the very versatile "A Wish for Everything" bundle. I challenged myself to make a Halloween card with all Annual catalog products.  I reached for Terracotta Tile as my primary color and got busy.


A Wish for Everything is a large stamp and die set and covers every holiday, birthday, and anniversary occasion.  The die words are: Mother, Father, Halloween, St. Patricks, Happy, Easter, New Years, Christmas, Day, Merry, Thanksgiving, Valentines.


Soft Suede is a my accent color on Very Vanilla.  The Terracotta Tile coordinating products can be seen here: I used our 2019-2021 In Color Designer Series Paper, Terracotta Scalloped Linen Ribbon, and 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

Summer Stamping Bingo - I Say Hello


Summer Stamping Bingo was so much fun today!  I love seeing my bingo ladies and it has been several months since we got together.  One of the five projects we made was this darling Pressed Petals journal.  It has an enchanting floral embossed cover that coordinated so nicely with the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and our Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim.

We use my gym, Curves Boise, and have the whole place to ourselves for the afternoon.  Here the ladies are deeply focused on tracking their bingo cards.


After a few games of Bingo we stop for our stamping projects.  This stamp station included our Water color pencils.  You can see them coloring here.


This is the card that they made.  We used the Water color pencils on the corners to complement the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper.



Each person received "I Say Hello" stamp set in their goody bag and will be able to use it over and over for projects at home.  We used almost every image in the "I Say Hello" stamp set:

This stamping station had two card projects and each design used a Stamparatus for perfect stamp image placement. 


The display boards featured unique designs made by demonstrators from all over the USA.


Everyone stamped at the stamp stations and then returned to their tables to assemble their projects.


This sheet music DSP was a fun background for the graduation theme card.


It was fun to see friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, and daughters all come to stamp together!


Stamping stations mean that supplies can stay in one location and people can move around to each project.  There is less waiting and crowding with this process and everyone gets to move around and get acquainted.


 This was my favorite card among my designs.  The Rococo Rose scalloped ribbon is such a nice texture.  Also the Mossy Meadow card stock was embossed with the Country Floral embossing folder before it was punched with the Tailored Tag punch - this really elevated the texture and complexity of the design.


Each participant received a 6 page color tutorial for their projects.  This meant they could know their supplies and details as they assembled their projects.  I didn't have to instruct each person, I could mingle and help where I was needed.


The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper was such a great pick for this stamp set and the cards I designed.  I liked the blue flowers and burlap, it has a calming tone for this sympathy card.


One of the nicest parts of a stamping event is meeting other stampers and making new friendships!


The two display tables also held the Raffle gifts.  There were all sorts of product packs, embossing folders, and kits.



As you can see, the "I Say Hello" stamp set has a lot of versatility to suit many kinds of projects.  I hope that my cards and journal inspire you to use the "I Say Hello" stamp set in your stamping.

These lovely ladies are the Bingo winners!
Tiffany took home the Blackout Bingo prize: "For the Love of Felt" kit.
Marianne selected the "On My Mind" Paper Pumpkin.  Dianna got a full product share from the 2019 Occasions catalog.  Kathy has our "Take Your Pick" tool.  Tammie won TWO rounds of bingo so she has the Vases Builder punch and the die brush tip for the "Take Your Pick" tool.   It was such a fun afternoon!  


My next event is September Stamping Bunco, if it is new to you -  I will teach you how to play bunco, everyone is welcome.  So get sign up at the Events Registration here: http://bit.ly/BoiseStamping

PPP Blog Hop On My Mind


Hello friends, welcome to our monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  We are excited to share our unique alternate designs for the July "On My Mind" kit with you tonight.

My first card features the Sail Away suite card.  I filled the green circle us the white on the back side.  I cut up one of the Kraft card bases and used the 2 1/4" circle punch to add a layer behind my boat.


This is the Kraft card base - it has the best embossed surface with dots.  I used the negative from the sprigs for my card to have a simple, clean, and nature theme.


I loved playing with layering for this design.  I used the white backside again this time from the leaf sprigs.  The paper clip holds it all into a cluster.  Aren't the sequins from this kit fun?!?



I am really pleased with how the layers and details came together on this design, it's so much fun to think outside of the PP box and create new versions!
