Royal Butterflies

Hello friends! I am so excited to have a card to share with you today! I have not been blogging nearly enough these past few weeks!
This week at Stampin’ Royalty the challenge is to make something with butterflies. 
I love the butterfly thinlit and think it makes a good project great! I love the way they can be layered. The gold really compliments this mint and pink in this project. 
This was just one of the projects the attendees created at my Sale-A-Bration Celebration last night. We had so much fun together playing silly games, stamping and eating yummy treats!

ICS iambringingbirthdayback

Hello hoppers! I am so glad to have you here! Thanks for hopping along with us at 
Inspire, Create, Share.

This month we are celebrating birthdays! A few month’s ago, a Stampin’ Up! employee from the home office named Shannon West decided that she wanted to start sending hand stamped cards in the mail so she did a Facebook shout out for anyone and everyone who wanted to receive a card. As you can imagine, the response was overwhelming and a movement began. The #hashtag 
#iambringingbirthdaysback went viral and many demonstrators around the globe have joined in!
I love sending cards in the mail so of course I jumped in as well!
This card was featured at a recent technique class that I host monthly. The technique is called the Spotlight Technique and I am sure you can see why. It is actually quite easy and can work with almost any line image. The possibilities are endless!
Now it’s is time to hop on over to my friend Darla’s blog and see what she has created for us! I am sure you are going to love it!

TGIF49 April Color Challenge

Happy Monday stampers! I hope you had a great weekend! We had such beautiful weather here and spring is on it’s way.
This week over at TGIF Challenges there is a great color challenge.
Here is my card
I love these colors together! They are gorgeous and I cannot wait to share this card at this month’s Quick and Easy card class on April 11th. The notecards and matching envelops make this a snap.

Wonderful Words Challenge

Happy Weekend everyone! I am excited for the gorgeous spring weather we are having here today. It is time to break out the BBQ!
This week over at Stampin’ Royalty the challenge is to create a project where the words or sentiment are the main focus. 
Here is what I came up with!


I love the idea of different words being the layer on this cake. It really makes for a fun and unique birthday card. Of course I wanted to use the 2014-2016 In Colors since they will be leaving us soon. I sure am going to miss Blackberry Bliss!

Hey stampin’ friends! So glad you came by today. I am playing along once again with Stampin’ Royalty and this week is the color challenge.
Aren’t these great colors! Here is my card

The lighting at this time of day is wonky, sorry about that. I am really working on creating cards that are quick and easy and I think this one fits the bill just right! It will be one of the cards used in my Q&E class next month!

March D’s Stampin’ Team USA Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s blog hop with D’s Stampin’ Team USA. I am honored to be a guest hopper again this month.
We are focusing on birthdays and I love making cards for birthdays. Everyone loves getting happy mail and not bills on their special day! However, sometimes making a masculine card can be a challenge. With the fantastic images from the set Guy Greetings this is no longer a problem for me!
This layout is quick and easy using the Typeset designer series paper and the gold button adds a touch of sophistication without being girly.
Thank you so much for hopping with us! Now it is time to see what
my very BFF Nichole has in store for us!

Stampin’ Royalty Sequins

Hello stampin’ friends! I have a very fun project to share with you today! This week’s challenge at Stampin’ Royalty is to use sequins.

These blushing bride sequins are so so pretty and I love how well they compliment this DSP from the Occasions Catalog! Mint Macron and Blushing Bride are such a nice pairing. I will be using this more this spring.
This project was also featured as part of the gift packaging display at Inking Idaho on the Road – Boise this past weekend. We had such a wonderful time stamping together, making new friends, seeing old friends and enjoying each other!

SSInk Color Challenge

Hello stamping friends! It seems that spring is just around the corner. And this week over at SSInk they have a color challenge that is just perfect for the season!

My creation:
I am needing quite a few birthday cards in the next few weeks so I decided have this card do double duty. I love the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating punch.  It helps making a card quick and easy!
The layout is clean and simple with just a little bling sparkle. I wanted this card to really focus on the colors.

ICS Blog Hop Welcome Spring!

Welcome hoppers to another month of Inspire, Create, Share! We are so glad you are here!

This month we are celebrating all things Spring! And who doesn’t love this season. New beginnings, new life, and fresh starts! For my project this month I wanted to make something fun and fresh, and a light hearted way to celebrate Easter.
 This card and project are great for sharing the message of Easter in a fun way! The large egg could be seen as an egg, or as the rock that covered the door of the tomb of Jesus.

This adorable bakers box could be filled with treats and given to neighbors, friends, teachers or even your church staff!
Thank you so much for hopping with us today! Now it’s time to see what Tina has in store for us.
