  Hello and Happy Friday!  Thanks so much for visiting us again this week and welcome if you are new to this blog.  Each week we present you with projects that we have designed based on a theme or product with the hope that it will bring you inspiration and new ways to use all of the fabulous products offered by Stampin' Up!  This week we are focusing on florals, after all who doesn't love flowers?  Summertime is bursting with color as flowers are in bloom all around and Stampin' Up! helps you capture that look in your stamped projects with a huge assortment of different stamp set images, Designer Paper designs, punches and die-cuts to choose from that range from the impressionist style to beautifully colored to realistic... just take a look at these fabulous DSP packs below and you'll understand what I mean.

  Go to your demonstrator's Stampin' Up! store and type in "floral" or "flower" in the product search and you will get a list of dozens of different products from which to choose.  Here are the ones we chose this week - we hope you enjoy our fabulous floral creations!

  Up first is Karla Anders with her gorgeous monochromatic birthday card.  She used the brand new Noble Peacock foil sheets - be sure to visit her blog post here to find out what product she used to cut it and the floral set she stamped with on this card.

Embossing Paste Friday

Welcome to our blog! For those of you who return week after week, thank-you! We focus each week on new products or techniques, this week we are looking at something that's been in the catalog for a little while now, Embossing Paste. When it first came out we all bought some wanting to try it out. But, then life happens and it gets pushed aside for other things. We decided that we needed a push to get us designing with it so we picked it for this week's Fabulous Friday theme. Let's take a look!

Karla is up first with her card, she used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste right out of the jar with a Decorative Mask. There are some close-up pictures on her blog post today.

 Next is Debbie's beautiful flowery card. She used the White Embossing Paste, a re-inker and some Shimmer Paint to make her Paste match her card, clever huh? Here is a link to her post so you can read up.

Last up is Jennifer, she really thought out of the box with her card-- she used her Embossing Paste as a smeared background. You'll have to go to her blog to get more instructions.

Hopefully you can come back next week, we will be getting our Floral stamp sets out!

Beach/Lake Inspired

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday!  We can hardly believe it is August already.  It seems we just started summer and here we are nearly at the end.  Many summer destinations tend to be the beach or lake for relaxation and inspiration.  So the SIS designers decided to create projects reflecting this inspiration - let's see what they created.

First up is Karla's inspirational masculine lighthouse card.  She used the new Sailing Home stamp set.  What I thought was interesting about her card is the fact that she started with bakers twine to pick her color combination.  You'll want to stop by Karla's blog here for all the details. 

Next up is Debbie's summer beach house right there on the waterfront.  Doesn't this make you wish you were there now feeling the warmth of the sun, the freshness of the ocean, and the chill from your daiquiri?  Hop on over to Debbie's blog here to learn more about her project.

Finally, here is Jennifer's card.  She also used the Sailing Home stamp set.  This is a great set for the guys, or anyone else who loves nautical designs.  The uplifting message is embellished with an anchor trinket but still remains quite masculine.  Please visit Jennifer's blog for more ideas.

Thanks again for stopping in.  We love your visits.
We hope you have a wonderful rest of your summer - we plan on taking advantage of all that we have left.  See you here again next Friday!

CASE'ing the Annual Catalog for Fabulous Card Ideas

  Hello and Happy Friday!  Did you know what a fabulous resource the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is? It is filled with hundreds of samples with great layouts and superb color combinations that are great when you hit a creative slump.  CASE (copy and share everything) is a philosophy that we all embrace here and we wanted to show you how easy it is to take a card that you love from the catalog and have it provide inspiration for a totally new project.

  First up we have Karla Anders with her fantastic masculine card.  She chose a card from page 32 of the catalog - do you see how that great layout turned into this fabulous card?  Be sure to visit Karla's blog post here for more information about her project.

  And here is a more feminine card from Debbie Naylor.  She chose a card from page 41 of the catalog.  Don't forget to hop over to Debbie's blog post here to get all the details about her card.

  We hope we have inspired you to take another look at your catalog and really examine the gorgeous samples inside - you might find your next favorite card layout or color combination!

  Thanks so much for visiting us this week and we hope to see you back again next week when we share beach/lake inspired projects.   Have a fabulous weekend!!

Folding Fabulous Friday

Some fun folding is what the Sisters are up to this week! Sometimes you just need to try a new fold for something new. Let's take a look at what they have to share.

 Jennifer is up first with her double-fold card. Her card is a great use of the Designer Series Paper called Woven Threads and has a gender neutral theme. Here is a link to her blog for you to read up on her creation.

Next is Debbie with her card, she used a stepped fold. The way she used the die cut thank-you and the stamped sentiment together on the front really sets this card apart. Jump on over to her post for today to take a look.

Lastly we have Karla's contribution for today, this folding technique is called a free standing pop-up card. You can scoot on over to her post to see her fun summer-y card open.

Thank-you for stopping by today to check out our projects, hope you can make it back next week!
