Stampin' Up! Someone Special

Stampin' Up! Someone Special for What’s New at Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop



I am happy that you are joining us for our hop.  We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ With Exciting Ideas to share with you.  Today we will feature products from the Coordinations Products Release.

For my project, I choose the Someone Special stamp set and the matching dies.  I LOVE this stamp set so I was thrilled when I saw Stampin' Up! would be releasing coordinating dies!



I LOVE the adorable animals in this set I have already created several cards and blog about them. If you would like to see them  they are Here and Here 

I used two of the flowers from the set to stamp a background. I choose my colors because they coordinate with tthe Metallic Baker's Twine & Sequins combo pack that is part of the Sal-A-Bration.  I love the way Stampin'Up! coordinates all their colors






Before I finished preparing for this Blog Hop I got an update announcing that the Metallic Twine and sequins have sold out.  Remember all Sale-A-Bration items and the coordination Products are limited and WHILE Supplies last. So if you fall in LOVE with something be sure and place an order right away. 


I used the sequins for the center of the large flower and the background flower. The Assorted iridescent sequins use the same color palette and can also be used. I put a tiny dab of glue on the flower center and then used the Take Your Pick tool to help place the sequins.





Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope that my cards will inspire you to take a look at the fabulous product coordination products and to do something creative today.

 If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you. Before you hop on please take the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you!


Happy Stamping,

Stampin' Up! Engagement Card

Stampin' Up! Color Challenge Engagement Card

It's Time for a Color Challenge. I love Color  Throwdown because it challenges me to use color combinations that I would not normally use.  Gray is a color that I normally use on sympathy cards so I challenged myself to use it and make it a celebratory card.







Thanks for visiting my blog today. If you live in the USA and need a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I will be happy to help you.  

If you would like to see how 40+ crafter use this color combination, you can see them all at

Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies

Stampin' Up Painted Poppies for Freshley Made Sketches





I knew as soon as I saw the new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches that I would be using Stampin' Up! Designers Series Paper (DSP )for the sketch challenge.


 I love the colors in this Designer Series Paper but it is a bit bold so I like to use it in small amounts.

Stampin' Up! Someone Special

Stampin' Up! Someone Special For Valentine's Day






For this week's Sketch Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, I  tried two different stamp sets, Someone Special and Little Ladybug. Come back tomorrow and you can see the card I made with Little Ladybug. Today, I am showing the card I made with Someone Special and the new Special dies that were just released as part of the Sale-A-Bration production coordination.



I love this little raccoon and I've played with him a lot. I used my Stamparatus and stamped out a stack of him in different color combos.


Since Valentine's Day is coming, I decided heart ballons would be just the thing.


For a little texture, I used the  Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder for the background and the Subtle embossing folder for the small piece.  I choose to use purple instead of the usual pink that you see in so many Valentine's cards because I love the Highland Heather cardstock and purple is my daughter's favorite color.

I used a retired die cut and a Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set for the sentiment.


This little cutie will be going in the mail today and I am going to miss him but hopefully, it will bring a big smile to the face of my daughter when she opens her card.


If you like to try creating a card with this stamp set a list of products is below.
