Crafting Forever Stampin Up In Color sampler card

It’s time for another great Blog Hop with my Fun n’ Crafty Stampers group!  This month we are playing with the new 2017-2019 In Colors! I hope you take a chance to hop through our projects today because these new In Colors are ones that have some surprisingly great colors in the set!  For example, while my far and away favorite new in color is the Berry Burst… I first saw Lemon Lime Twist and thought,”Ack!  How can anyone do anything with this neon yellow/green color?” Oh, silly me! I soon saw people pairing it with black and white… seriously … Read More

You Are Awesome! Say it with Marquee Messages

JenniferCards0 Comments

Maybe it is because I grew up in the 80s and 90s, but I just love the word “Awesome” and love to use that to tell people how much I think of them.   So, when I got the Marquee Messages stamp set and saw it had the phrase “you are awesome”… well, I knew it was perfect for me! This is one of those stamp sets that there is one main image and then a few different sentiments to change up what you can say in this set.  And honestly, sometimes working with a set that doesn’t make me … Read More

JenniferCards0 Comments

Oops!  While I was away on my trip, apparently I got the last two display stamper blog posts ready but didn’t actually get them published!  But some of my favorite samples were in these sets so I want to make sure to get them shared for you now.  🙂 Today’s projects all highlight the Delightful Dijon color.  This was not one of my favorite colors when I saw it by itself and I thought for sure it would be my hardest color to work with…. NOPE!  Turns out it is a great color when mixed with neutrals and even some … Read More

Alright people, we are at T-minus 2 DAYS of Sale-a-Bration!  Did you get your order in?  If not, let me share with you some more ideas from another of one of the free Sale-a-Bration items you could choose before the month is out! Today I’m featuring the Botanicals For You stamp set The name makes you think it is all about flowers, but it is because it matches some of the Botanicals Suite products in the Occasions Catalog.  I just love the big “Just For You” and so created a couple cards with it that I just love: Fun with … Read More

A Color Blocking LOVE Card with Layered Letters Alphabet Stamps

JenniferCards0 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always seemed to have at least one alphabet stamp set lying around my craft room…like for years, the stamp set may alternate but I’ve always had at LEAST one set.  I always told myself they would be great for scrapbooking or for custom words on cards…and I’ve used them once or twice, but most of the time I glossed right past them in favor of a sentiment from other stamp sets.  So, when Layered Letters came out and I loved the font, I knew to be skeptical if I would actually use it. … Read More

Clean and Simple Hi Card with the Awesome Layered Letters

JenniferCards, Clean & Simple1 Comment

I don’t know about where you are in the US but up here in the far Northwest, we are trying not to melt!  We have been hit with a week of 85+ degree weather… which wouldn’t be too bad except none of the houses here have AC!  And I’ve spent the last 2 days outside in my Garage running my Craft Garage sale.    But now today I get to stay inside in our basement and cool off and craft, craft, craft!  I’ll be making all the samples for my Fun Folds Technique class on Tuesday & the Playing with … Read More

Sending off Mixed Bunch and the Modern Label Punch with a Blue Bokeh Card

JenniferCards, Techniques0 Comments

Every year I have one item on the Stampin’ Up retiring list that I can’t believe is going away.  This year, I can’t believe the Modern Label punch is retiring!  Especially since it goes so awesomely with the Word Window punch!  I guess that just means I have to enjoy it now (and hang on to mine and keep loving it after they stop making it too. ) Today I wanted to share another Bokeh card we did in my technique class.  I think I’ve decided I love mixing in colored circles with my white circles when doing the Bokeh … Read More

JenniferBig Shot, Cards, Clean & Simple2 Comments

Today over on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration blog, we are sharing some quick and easy cards for you.  So, I thought I’d share one of the cards I created for my Stamp Club this fall. I kept it quick to go together thanks to my handy Big Shot and the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, so that we could focus on playing with the Blendabilities! Tips for making this card By using an embossing folder for your contrasting color of paper, it keeps your simple card interesting to look at without overwhelming the stamped image. Dimensions for this card:Hello Honey cardstock … Read More

Amazing Birthday Thank You Card–Display Board Sample

JenniferCards, Die Cutting, Display Board Samples0 Comments

I’m back!  I made it home from the 2014 Stampin’ Up convention and had a great time.  As I mentioned before, I was honored to be invited to create samples for the display boards this year.  Everyone coming to convention received 3 stamp sets – Amazing Birthday, Kinda Eclectic, and Seasonally Scattered (coming soon in the 2014 Holiday Catalog).  So, as display stampers, we received our sets early and were asked to make 8 projects for each stamp set.  I will admit, this was an intimidating task, especially when I learned the caliber of stampers who were joining me with … Read More

It’s a …..

JenniferCards3 Comments

Well, I’m happy to share that we found out earlier this week that we will be having a little boy come Christmas time.  So, of course to commemorate the occasion I had to put together a quick card to share the news. 🙂    I wanted to play with some scraps left over from cutting a scallop circle with the BigShot and start coming up with some ideas using the Nursery Necessities stamp set.  I have a feeling I’ll be getting a lot more use out of this stamp set over the next year.   If you have put together some … Read More
