Product Spotlight Week: Merry Patterns

So this week I wanted to focus on the Merry Patterns stamp set this week. I really adore this stamp set and I am so sad that it will be leaving us at the end of October. So they way to earn this stamp set is to either place a $300 order or host a party with me and get a qualifying order.

Merry Patterns Photopolymer Stamp Set

So here is my project that I created during World Card Making day. It is a sweet and simple 3×3 card that you could place in a gift basket. Really there is not a stamp in this set that I do not love but I love how you can have different colors with the candles. The colors that I chose are Rich Razzleberry and Berry Burst. Not two commonly put together colors but I think that they work amazingly well.

I wanted the flames to sparkle some so I used the tombow glue and our gold  glitter to give it a little bit of a shimmer on the top. Reminder that you can purchase any of these products in my online store and make sure to use the hostess code as long as your order is below $150 otherwise you give up your hostess benefits.

Also I recommend if you do have an order over $99 to looking into becoming a demonstrator. We receive a lot of great benefits and now is the time to join my team! Have questions? I am always happy to answer them when you reach out to me.

Also tomorrow is the final day that you order your Paper Pumpkin and start your subscription. I would hate for you to miss out on the coordinating kits that will be coming your way. These are also wonderful gifts for kids that want to be creative since everything they need is in one kit.

I hope you enjoyed this card and that you will continue to follow me this month as I continue with my 31 day challenge

Have a wonderful Monday!

Special Delivery Global Friends Hop

Hello!!!

I hope that this blog post finds you doing well. If you are new to my site Welcome!! and if you have been with me for a little bit and follow me through social media you will know that we are in the process of moving from MD to NC for a job change for myself. When I am not stamping, I am a Manufacturing Engineer for a large fortune 200 company. I am loving all the new and crazy challenges that work has to offer but it has taken a little bit of time away from stamping. Today should be the pack day of all of our things and hopefully next week we will receive it and can start unpacking again.

Anyways back to the card. I love the tulips hostess set that we have and love how it really pulls this card together.

This crate was inspired by my time in Amsterdam this year for our Onstage conference. There were so many tulips all around us and it always reminds me to take a step back and go a little slower through life. This card was created for a very special family member to celebrate her birthday! I hope she loves the card as much as I love her and making it for her.

The inside of the card is again very simple:

If you would like to also own this set all you have to do is host a party (either in person or virtually) or if you place an order of over $150 you can also use your Stampin’ Rewards to purchase them.

Also wanted to remind you that I am hosting a retreat in October that is open to all but space is limited! If you are interested in joining please message me. Prices will come available soon.

Have a great day! Make sure to keep hoping along and give Kimberly some love by either clicking on the arrow below or click HERE

Global Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop Children’s Card

Hello Friends!

If you are joining me from Susan Vilar welcome! I hope that you are enjoying this blog hop so far. If you are joining me because you are one of my customers I am so excited for you to join this blog hop! I am so excited to share my card with you today. Our hop theme was back to school and I decided to make a card for my godchild. She is starting Kindergarten this year and I thought that this card would be a sweet surprise for her.

So here is the front of my card:

I just love this super adorable set A Little Wild (Item #144344) and used the black ink pads to stamp them around. I used our Stampin’ Write markers to color in the bear and bees. I also thought that the sentiment was also fitting since I am so wild about her.

 

On the inside I decided to use our Angel policy stamp set Crafting Forever (Item # 143958) because I loved the scissors and the pens and brushes.

I hope that you enjoyed these cards and that you will continue to hop around. Please also ensure to subscribe to my blog to continue to get updates from me.

I also wanted to share with you all that I will be hosting a retreat in Charlotte, NC. I hope that you will join me. The cost and projects that we will be doing will be coming soon, but for now make sure to Save the Date!

Thanks for joining me,
Christina

Daisy Friend Card and Tic Tac Toe

Do you ever just sit and get creative block? It is like writer’s block but when you are trying to be creative. I know I do! So I was hoping that we could inspire and create together. I made a Tic Tac Toe board and you pick 3 elements off it (either vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) and create a project from that. Sound like fun? You should try it and then use the #pgttt001 on Instagram and Facebook so that I can see your lovely creations and re-share them. Your account must be public for me to see it on Instagram.

I am going to try this for the month of July and I want to hear from you guys if you like it. If you do we can continue to do it. If not we will find something different.

So to get you all going I am going to share the card that I created and what inspired me. So I used the inspiration of the Summer Stamp, A punch, and Bright Colors.

I love the Daisy Suite that we now have but I have been so busy that this is the first time I am actually using it. I used our gorgeous new glitter enamel dots for the center of the card to give it some extra pop. I also used the pretty label punch and added a sentiment from the Daisy stamp set.

Below is the inside of the card.

I cut down all of my Designer Series Paper to be 4×6 inches so that I could easily take a piece of paper and start creating. I then trim down my paper to fit my card front. Afterwards I have this beautiful extra strip that I can use on the inside to tie the entire card together. If you are interested in sampling of these 4X6 sheets please reach out to me for pricing and availability.

 

Finally right now is the best time to make a $50 purchase because for every $50 that you spend in July you will receive a $5 voucher to use in August. How cool is that.

Also if you join my team you will get a $72 value pack to help you hit the ground running on top of the already great starter pack. Need more info? Message me.

 

Have a great Thursday!

Just for You!!!

Welcome!

We have almost made it to the end of the week and if you are like me I am so glad. I have been busy getting everything ready for a party that I am doing this weekend and figured I would give everyone (even my guest) a sneak peak at the beautiful card that we are going to make. I also realized today that some of you may look at the cards that you can make from Stampin’ Up! and go “I could never do that!” So I am going to start putting a gauge of Easy, Medium, or Difficult to each post. That way you can see quickly if you can do it (which I know you can!). Also I am going to put on there how much time it took me plus or minus a few minutes (I am an engineer after all).

So let’s begin shall we..

I would consider this card to be easy. just a couple of quick stamping and using  a punch easy peasy. This card probably took me about 30ish minutes to do but I think you could easily whip up 10 of these cards in 45 minutes if you just CASED mine (Copy and Steal).

I used the Old Olive Classic stamp pad and just put it on the card randomly. I also got 2 stamps out of each ink-age which gave me the pretty two tone green color on the card. Then I took our Botanicals for You (hurry this is a Sale-A-Bration item) and stamped it using the Rich Razzleberry.

Then I took the yellow from the Subtles card stock (you could really use any of those amazing colors) and stamped the flowers onto it. Take your punch and punch them out (everything lines up). If you want to add the sparkle you can take our Rhinestones (which are on our weekly deals this week so you can get 2 packs) place them in the middle and then use your dimensional to give your card some depth.And that is it super simple. If you purchase all the products on the list you can easily get your Botanical for You Sale-A-Bration item. Please make sure that you use my online store to order all of your Stampin’ Up! products.

Is your wish list a mile long? Do you want all of these products plus everything I have posted all week? Maybe it is time to consider becoming a demonstrator yourself and joining my team! I would love to have you and if you have any questions before or during I am here to help!

Make it a wonderful Thursday!
Christina

 

Just for You!!!

Easy Thank You Cards

Happy Friday!

This has been a great week and with many amazing things happening in my Stampin’ Up! world. I have to say that I truly love being  a demonstrator. Why? Because I get to share my craft ideas with you, I have an amazing upline support system, and I met great people like you who are so creative.

So I have a lot of friends that are getting married, own a business, or maybe you just always want to have a card on hand. This card is so simple all you have to do is take the stamp, ink it up, and then place it on your card base. That is it. DSCN1054

Have you been thinking about joining Stampin’ Up! but just a little worried that you can’t do it or making the minimums? Please reach out to me. I would love for you to join my team!!! Be sure to visit my Stampin’ Up! website to place your orders or to join my team!

Have a great Friday and weekend!
