A Gift Tag With Suite Sentiments

Hi friends, how are you today?

Here is a recent project I created for our Stamp of the Month Club members with the April stamp set, Suite Sentiments.

Each month, I design a special tag to show our club members how must I appreciate them. It’s one of my favorite parts of my job. This tag features some really great retiring items, so be sure to pick them up before they sell out!

Stampin’ Tips:

~These went together quickly with a stapler instead of glue.

~The trim was cut from the Very Vanilla Lace Trim, I just cut the edge off and used that.

~The butterfly looks so pretty cut from the cloud pattern in the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Stack.

~Many of these items are retiring, so pick them up while you still can!

More Fun With the Lift Me Up Bundle

Hi friends! How are you?

Recently, you may have seen the March Stamp of the Month Club cards I designed for our club members with the Lift Me Up Bundle by Stampin’ Up!.

As I was creating these cards, I decided to “go all out” and create a special birthday card for a friend. I had so much fun adding layers of ribbon and decorative paper. Here is a close up of the details:

My hubby pointed out that the frayed ribbon has the look of blowing in the wind- exactly the look I was going for!

More Fun With Cool Treats

Hi friends! How are you today?

My son continues to battle his illness, which has finally been diagnosed as autoimmune encephalitis. This means his immune system is attacking his brain, which wreaks havoc on both the body and the mind. Recovery can take up to two years. About 25% of people either never recover or pass away, but we hold fast to the hope that he will get better. He has long periods of time when he does not speak, swallow or even know what is going on, but he randomly comes back around and when he does, he is still himself. Words can not describe how wonderful those moments are. If you are interested in learning more, the book “Brain On Fire” by Susannah Cahalan is a first hand account of a young lady who lived through the nightmare of autoimmune encephalitis. It is so similar to Thomas’ battle that I often put it down and just cried.

As a result of his health struggle, which has been going on for almost eight months now, I have not been able to keep up here at Stampin’ 365, yet so many of you have continued to support me. Thank you! These moments of creating and sharing with you are very therapeutic and I appreciate each of you so much. You are why I do this!

So today, I thought I would share an easy little treat sack I created with the Cool Treats Bundle for the display boards at Onstage.

With all the little ice cream cones, sundaes, and popsicles, the Cool Treats bundle is so much fun to play with and perfect for last minute gift giving!

Gorgeous (Free!) Glimmer

Hi friends! How are you today?

Here is one of the cards we made last night at a workshop. I just had to show off the gorgeous new Bermuda Bay glimmer paper. Just look at how it sparkles in the light!

This 6×6 glimmer paper comes in three gorges colors and is available free with a $50 purchase for just a little while longer. (While supplies last, so don’t miss out!)

Stampin’ Tip

1. The Lift Me Up Bundle comes with cute little clouds. You can add interest with a sponge dauber and your stamp pad. Just sponge a little color on the edges- so cute!

2. Pair the Cupcakes and Carousels 6×6 dsp with the Lift Me Up Bundle for really fun cards.

3. Want an easy trick for gluing intricate dies? Use a silicone mat! Put a dab of multipurpose glue on the mat. Place the die on the mat, upside-down. Use a sponge to pick up a little glue (not too much!) and sponge all over the back, being careful to not shift the die. Now you can glue it down. Use wet wipes to quickly clean your mat. Viola!

4. Want to step this card up? Add the layers of color to the hot air balloon, under the glimmer paper.

Almost Time To Say Goodbye: In Colors

Hi friends!

One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up! is the fabulous color collection. To keep things fresh, Stampin’ up! introduces five new colors every year. These “In Colors” are carefully researched to see what will go with the existing collection and what the hottest trends are.

The 2015-2017 In Colors are so beautiful. Here are some boxes I created for Onstage with them:

Each collection is “in” for two years, which means things are kept fresh, new and exiting. But, it also means saying goodbye to some really beautiful colors!

If you are in love with any of these, now is the time to purchase them because they will sell out fast! (A few are already on back order, so don’t delay!)

Watermelon Wonder is one of my all time favorite stampin’ up! colors and I am really going to miss it! which of these will you miss the most? Leave a comment and let us know!

Happy stampin’ friends!

Michelle

More Fun With Watercolors

cool-treats-stampin365-com-2

Hello friends! How are you today?

Here’s another fun watercolor card. Watercolor cards are all the rage right now, and I can’t seem to get enough lately. But since I have no watercolor skills, I need easy shortcuts.

Stampin’ Up! to the rescue!

cool-treats-2-stampin365-com-2

For this technique, I turned to the Cool Treats stamp set. For the popsicles, I stamped them in bold colors and then added a little bit of water with my aqua painter to make them look watercolored. So easy! (One tip is to not over do the water or they will bleed and lose their shape. Just a little bit of water does the trick.)

After they were dry, I took the ink pads, squished ink into the lids, picked it up with my aqua painter and splattered it on the background. I made masks for the popsicles first, so they would stay splatter free.

I’m crazy about this bright color combo!

 

The days are gray and dreary here in Oregon, so a fun, bright card seemed a perfect way to bring a little cheer. I hope you have a chance to work with this fun stamp set- it is just too cute!

Happy stampin’ friends!

Michelle

 

P.S.

Once again, I am posting from the hospital. Our son has taken a turn for the worse and they are now trying a therapy called plasmapheresis, which filters his blood for antibodies. The treatments will be every other day for 10 days and his first treatment was yesterday. We are hopeful that this will help him finally recover.

So many of you have supported up through kind words, mail and prayers and I can not tell you how much it helps! Every time I feel like I can’t possibly watch him go through one more second of this, someone reaches out in kindness or prayer and my hope is restored. Thank you one and all for that!
