NC SU Demos Occasions and In Color Blog Hop

Welcome to the second NC SU Demos Blog Hop! Follow through the blogs to see lots of great ideas featuring products from the Occasions catalog and the outgoing In Colors. Once you see the great projects in this blog hop, you'll probably want to get some supplies to make your own. If you are already my customer or don't already have a demonstrator, please go here to order online. Use hostess code 3YZWXVTS and get a free thank you gift from me - plus a free Sale-a-Bration item if your order is over $50.

I fell in love with this Designer Series Paper (DSP) the first time I saw it. Since it uses the retiring In Color Blackberry Bliss (which I also love), I chose to use it for today's projects. This type of card is called a Joy Fold card. Scroll down for supplies used, other views, and another card using the same supplies.

Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss, Very Vanilla, Pacific Point (though I just noticed the DSP uses Island Indigo, so you may want to use that instead), Delightful Dijon
Designer Series Paper: Bohemian DSP
Stamps: Number of Years, Party with Cake (inside)
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay
Big Shot: Large Numbers Framelits

The little diamond in the corner helps hold the card closed. Only put Stampin' Dimensionals on one half so that the front of the card can tuck under the other half. Here it is untucked.
Here's what it looks like with the first flap unfolded.
 Here's the card all the way open. The diamond on the inside panel is cut out from the DSP.
And here's a view from the top so you can see how it all goes together.
 Here's another card I made using some of the same supplies. I like it because I think it's appropriate for a male or a female and sometimes it's harder for me to come up with masculine cards. Though I must say, Stampin' Up! has seemed to have more manly stamps recently.
Another great tip - this DSP coordinates nicely with the Boho Chic embossing folder. That's it for my projects. Thanks for stopping by. Head on over to the blog of Pam Staples to see another great project.

Bloomin' Heart Framed Piece

Happy Valentine's Day!

I enjoy making framed home decor pieces. This one isn't overly fancy, but the Bloomin' Heart die is so pretty it doesn't need a lot to it to look good.
Hearts are Gold Glimmer paper and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. Sentiment and banner stamps are from the Bloomin' Love stamp set. The die and stamps are available as a bundle, which means if you buy both together you can save 15%. The banner framelit is from the  Large Numbers Framelits. I added Basic Pearls to the flowers. The background is Real Red card stock on which I added a few Gold Sequins. The frame is 5x7.

I'm famous --- sort of

So, did I get your attention with that title? Famous might not quite be the word (or anywhere close for that matter, but it sounded good - and maybe someday - you can help by commenting on my blog posts; following my facebook page; and commenting, liking, and sharing posts on my facebook page). The demo I joined under, Frances Wagner, is spotlighting her team on her blog. Today is my day to be featured. You can see the post here.

Frances posted a short bio and a card I sent her. This is the card:

I absolutely love the Rose Wonder bundle. It's amazing! I used my Big Shot and the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies to cut the rose and leaves from Basic Black cardstock. Then I backed the rose with Real Red cardstock. The background is Garden Green. The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set. The label is cut with a die from the Rose Garden framelits and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. This is a quick and easy card, but I think it looks really elegant and beautiful.

You can order the Rose Wonder bundle (Item 140804) and other Stampin' Up! items at my online store. The bundle is $49.25, so if you get it, just one more item will get you a free Sale-a-Bration item. Plus, use hostess code PHT7N7VY and get a thank you gift from me. I'm also placing a group order on Sunday if that works better for you.

Remember, 3 SAB sets are only available through February 15th - Sky's the Limit stamp set, Perfectly Artistic DSP, and Hello stamp set. Get 'em while you can.

Join my team during Sale-a-Bration and get an extra $30 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies in your starter kit. That's $155 worth of stampin' fun, plus a bunch of business supplies, for only $99 (with no shipping). I'll help you get started, provide training and resources, and even feature you on my blog (if you want). See details here.

You Are Tea-riffic

Today's card features the A Nice Cuppa bundle which includes the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies and the A Nice Cuppa stamp set.

The tea pot and kettle were die cut out of Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper (DSP). It was supposed to look like china. You can get this beautiful paper for free during SAB when you spend $50. The background was made with the Lovely Lace embossing folder. I chose that design because it made me think of a lace tablecloth.The corners were punched with the Curvy Corner Trio punch.

Hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Masculine Birthday Card With a Twist

These cards with the flipped up DSP are all the rage lately. Have you seen them? I finally got around to trying one - with a twist. I changed the orientation. I love how the DSP opens to reveal the message. And is it just me, or every time you see that stamp do you think of the Beatles and want to start singing?

I love the colors in the It's My Party DSP pack, but it's a little harder to make a masculine card with it. I think this one works.


Stamps: Suite Sayings, Party With Cake
Ink:  Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand (sponged around Make a wish).
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper (DSP): It's My Party
Embellishments: Gold Sequins
You can make this and seven other great projects at my Birthday Bash class this Saturday, Feb 6. Contact me to reserve your spot.
