Artisan Wednesday Wow

Tuesday, July 22

 
 Guess time really does fly when you're having fun because we are down  to our final 2 weeks of ADT 2013 blog hops! Eek! I know many of you attended Convention & may know the exciting news, Becky, Cindy, & I will continue on to the 2014 team! What?! Crazy Awesome, right?!
Anyway I will share more about that later but for now lets talk about the Amazing Birthday stamp set-
 
 
item#134225 w/ 134228 c
Many of you received it at Convention & we got it in our ADT boxes too so just in case you need a couple more fun ideas...
  
 


My brother in laws birthday is coming up next week so having a cute "guy style" cake topper might come in handy. Lol! But I also love how this set can be spun to fit a girly girl too!
This card was so simple I even had time to do a quick bit of sewing & still be finished in under 10 minutes. Love that! Of course a matching envelope is always fancy too.
Speaking of Fancy...its time to hop on over & see what Alanna Wharf has to share with you today!

Its Gonna Be Fancy!

Sunday, July 20

Holy cow Convention 2014 was so much fun! I have LOTS of fun to share but this will just be a quick post to give you a sneak peek at a card kit that will be available in the new Holiday Catalog!


 
We had the opportunity to get our hands on this amazing kit called Watercolor Winter & let me just say we will be sending some fancy Christmas cards this year! This is by far THE best Simply Created Kit Stampin Up has EVER offered! There was a fun contest to be a little creative with the kit & who ever gets the most likes on Pinterest wins some free products! Whoop Whoop! I hope you check out the pinterest page  & like your favorites, hopefully mine is one of them! Lol! Anyway this kit comes with these amazing die cut glitter phrase! Squeal!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I must contain my excitement...sooo since they provide these beauties in 4 different languages which sadly I don't speak-I took one of these die cuts & snipped a few of the letters to create my Jesus card.


 
 We only had what was provided in the class to work with so I whipped this up in hopes of entering the contest. Simple but to the point of what Christmas is all about for our family. Thank you for stopping by & please come back soon as I have Big News & lots to share!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- Little Letters

Tuesday, July 1

 
Welcome to the 2013 Artisan Design Teams very last month of blog hops...my eyes are tearing up as I write this. It has been an amazing amazing year & I am so grateful to have had this opportunity!
 
 Ok I better move on before I bust out in full blown water works...lets talk New Big Shot Toys!
If you're like me it is one of the first things I can't wait to see when I crack the pages of the new catalog & I was super happy with this years collection. On the tip top of my wish list were the Little Letters dies so when they were included in our boxes this month I almost did a back flip...well not really because I would have ended up in the E.R. but you know what I mean!
Lets take a look at a couple of fun cards, shall we-
 
Check out that new embossing folder & the Gold Soiree DSP! Squeal! Quick & Cute just the way I like it!
 
The next card wasn't quite as fast but Hubby & I celebrated our 10 year anniversary on Friday so it was totally worth the extra effort. He liked it & didn't even mention where I fudged a little. He must have been mesmerized by all that SHINE. Lol! It actually doesn't show up too well but it was Gold Foil paper behind the black so it was really shiny.
 

Well that's all I have for today so that means its time to hop over to Alanna's place!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- Facebook Edition

Tuesday, June 24

 
How is it possible that this is the last Tuesday in June?! Well welcome to our last hop of the month! I hope you have been enjoying your summer! Its been crazy town around here. I barely know what day it is most of the time. Lol! Anyway today we get to share the projects we made for the Stampin Up facebook page-

 
As I shared on FB I almost tossed this image after I forgot to give it the breathe of life after I colored it with my markers but decided to just go with it since it had a kind of vintage watercolor look.
Well that's all have for today & if your days are going like mine you don't have time to read much more anyway. Lol!
Quick! Lets jump over to see Alanna!

Artisan Wednesday Wow- Versatility

Tuesday, June 17


Welcome back! Thanks for hopping along with us today.
My post is all about stamp set versatility, so lets take a look at the stamp set Amazing Birthday!

Even though you would think it is just geared toward birthdays it has some other stamps in the set that make it very versatile! My favorite is the adorable thank you sentiment so I paired it with another stamp that was at the top of my must have list, Snapshot, to create a card for a sweet family I had the pleasure of photographing last weekend!


I was pretty pumped to see the Hip Hip Hooray card kits made it in to the catalog too! Love those note cards!

Ok so on with our talk about versatility... how about "Dude" cards? I always struggle with those & my brother in laws birthday is coming up so I thought I better get a jump on it so I don't end up taking the card makers walk of shame by sending a "Happy Birthday" email instead of a card. Lol!

And just in case you think the style of that birthday sentiment leans more toward the  masculine side how about a girly version-

Sent this card to my Grandma for her 80th birthday & it even made it on time! Shocker!!!
 
 Anyway hope these cards have inspired you to give the Amazing Birthday set a try for birthdays & beyond. Ok lets go see what Alanna is up to today-
