Father's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crafty Collaborations Father's Day Blog Hop.  This is a little hard for me, because my dad passed away a month after my wedding. I still miss him greatly, he was a great man!
    I don't really have any new Father's Day stamp sets. So I chose to use the new Spiral Dye and a sentiment  the "A Good Man" stamp set.  The Spiral is a  new background stamp. To be honest, I wish they had made it square instead of rectangular. I had a hard time matching the center up. 

So I put the sentiment over it! .Problem solved!  I cut the sentiment out with a die from the Tasteful Labels Die set.  

The colors I used were Real Red and the Bermuda Bay. I wasn't as happy with my color choices. Sometimes they don't work like my mind see it. Going to try again with Coastal Cabana...will post on the Facebook page. I finished it off with the silver diamonds from Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure and visit all the other great hops!

So cool by the Pool


Welcome Dreamer's and Blog Hop followers! Thanks for joining me today for the Crafty Collaborations Blog Hop! We are a group of ladies from all over the world, who come together to bring you inspiration to jump kick your stamping.

  And what a better way to do that, than with a Paper Pumpkin kit! I have to admit that I rarely do the kit as designed. How about you? This month's kit just spoke to me.  I have a set of twin boys that love Grandma's and Grandpa's pool.

And popsicles were always a hit. So since today is International Scrapbook Day, I created a double layout from the kit. 

I am not a sticker fan, but the sun was the perfect size for this layout. The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and then cut with the Curvy Dies. I continued the curves with the waves using Burmuda Bay and Pool Party. Stamping the popsicles on the base and coloring with Stamping Blends gave it a bit of whimsy!

I hope you enjoyed my layout  and try to create one yourself. Don't forget to Hop to the next blog. 
I am Dreamin' of summer keep dreamin' too!

Not so Simple Monday...Introducing Polished Pink

 I am so in love with the NEW 2021-2023 In-Colors.  Last week I focused on Pale Papaya, on my Simple Sunday Live and my Coffee & Cards. sorry I didn't get to the Blog again last week. So it is Saturday and I am typing this for Monday!  The only way to get things done. Don't you love to be able to schedule our social media?

    No need to put in the dimensions of yesterdays' card. I used a base of  Basic White cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" nd scored at 41/4".  The mask I used was 2" wide!

  I kept my design basically the same as the original. I just stepped it up. Quite a bit, as a matter of fact!  Let me tell you how.

  • I masked off a 2" strip at the bottom. of a card base of Thick Basic White,  (See video for a how to)
  • Using Polished Pink Stampin' Pad &  Blending Brush, I softly started added colors around the edges. I worked my way slowly to the middle, pulling the ink into the middle. I love the "glow" this technique made.

  • With Tuxedo Black Memento I stamped the flower stem from Color & Contour 3 times on Polished Pink Cardstock. I die cut them out using Scalloped Contours dies.
  • I glued these dies to the top section of the card, giving the illusion that they went under the white stripe!  The center die was popped up with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Also using Memento, I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Basic White CS. The 2nd smallest rectangle die cut out a darling edge for the label.  I used the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to give this a little punch and to create a bit of drama to the card! 

  • I felt the little "dots" on the the corners absolutely called for some bling, so I added an In-Color Jewel on each one.

    And here it is! My finished card!  See what I mean by the glow? It isn't a bright white any longer. These blender brushes may be my favorite new toy!!
Thanks for joining me!  There are several changes coming in the near future, so hang out and be a part of it!  I love Stampin' Up! so much! They always have the best products. 

so until we see each other again....
I'm Dreamin' of crops and retreats...You keep Dreamin' too!
