Perfectly Wrapped In Colors Card Kits!


I wanted to feature the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set and the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin' Write Markers from the Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  The Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set was made to pair with the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit (Item #142439, sold separately), but this stamp set can also stand on its own for creativity.

With the purchase of the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set and the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin' Write  Markers (shipping not included), I'll mail you 5 pre-cut card kits and an instruction sheet showing the cards and measurements.

Here are the cards the kits will make:

Foxy Friends!

Happy Father's Day!

Here are just a few samples from the Foxy Friends Stamp Set (141549) and Fox Builder Punch (141470) in the new Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.

The stamp set and punch come separate or bundled (142326 page 57) (bundled at a 10% savings).  This is a must have and I think we've just begun to see the animals you can create (check out Pinterest for more ideas).

CYCI#124 Watercolor Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to CYCI#124!  This week at, we have a watercolor sketch challenge for you!

This is also my last week as a CYCI Design Team Member.  It's been a great two plus years and I've appreciated all of the help and friendship Eva and the rest of the Design Team have given me.  My first challenge as a Design Team Member was CYCI#11 here:

So it's only fitting that for my last Design Team card I use a technique Eva taught me.  It's so easy, but so much fun!

You take a clear mount block and put 3 different color ink pads on it in color blocks, spritz it with rubbing alcohol and stamp on Whisper White Cardstock.  You get a different look each time.

This card was made for my dear friend Jen:

I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Soft Sky, Night of Navy and Whisper White Cardstock
Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Versamark and Pool Party Ink Pads
Sunburst Sayings Stamp Set
1 3/8" Circle Punch
1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch (retired)
White Stampin' Emboss Powder
 Stampin' Spritzer
Jewel Rhinestones
Stampin' Dimensionals
Clear Block E

Other:  Rubbing Alcohol

Thanks everyone for stopping by!  Make sure you visit and link up your creation while you check out the awesome Design Team cards.

CYCI#123 Color Challenge


This week at we have a great color challenge (colors chosen by Elizabeth) for you!

Red, White and Blue!

My project this week is a home decor piece. As the Fourth of July is approaching, I took advantage of this color combination to make something patriotic.

I used the new Swirly Scribbles Thinlits from the Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, along with Whisper White, Real Red and Night of Navy Cardstock. I also used Red and Silver Glimmer paper and some Silver Sequin Trim to top off the bling.  The stars were cut using the Stars Framelits, and the numbers using the Large Numbers Framelits.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous crafty week, and don't forget to stop by to check out the awesome goodness over there. Link up your creation too!
