Pretty Peekaboo

I am really going to miss Peekaboo Peach!  It’s such a fresh and pretty color, but it is retiring soon. The 2016-18 In Colors will be gone for good soon!  This has to be my favorite In Colors of all time. If you love these colors as much as I do, you should stock up on Cardstock, ink pads, embellishments and reinkers before they’re gone.  They always sell out before the end date (May 31), and you don’t want to miss out.!!

On this card, I used the Picture Perfect stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  I love the font and fun sentiments in this set!  I also used Tutti Fruiti dsp and the shimmer ribbon from Sale-a-bration.  This ribbon is FREE with a qualifying purchase of $50.  It’s so pretty and easy to tie!

If you place an order of $50 or more by March 31 and use this host code, you will receive a free pack of embellishments from me!  HOST CODE:   G9PUNNQZ  
And don't forget, you will also receive a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  There are some great choices (this ribbon, for one)!!  Check out your free options here:  Sale-a-Bration

AZ Trip

As mentioned in my previous post, my husband and I went to Scottsdale, AZ for his company trip.  We had a great time!  I met lots of nice people and we saw some pretty sights.  One day, I went to Sedona with the girls and then went back the next day with my husband.  We arrived in shorts and it was really cold!  It started to rain and hail while we were eating lunch.  We stopped at Jerome, an old mining town, on the way back.  I was petrified during the drive.  It is located at 7,000 feet on the side of a mountain!  I don't have any pictures.  We headed to Tucson the next day and stopped off at Saguaro State Park where we saw lots of cacti.  Next stop was Old Tucson.   They filmed Little House on The Prairie there and lots of movies and shows.  We headed back to Phoenix and stopped at one of the casinos where we lost our shirts!  It was so much fun.  I hope to go back again.

New SAB Items to choose!

I just got back from a nice vacation to Scottsdale, AZ.  It was beautiful out there!  We went to Sedona and Tucson as well.  I will try to post a few pics.  Sedona is gorgeous!  I will have to go back because there were a few friends I really wanted to see.  We just didn't have the time.

Stampin' Up! has added some products you can choose for FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  With any order $50 or more, you can choose one of these items (some are with a $100 order).  Just click to shop!

SAB Ribbon & Cards

I put together this quick card with the items I got for free during Sale-a-Bration!  The shimmer ribbon and Tutti Fruit card bases are great!  The card bases are much prettier in person!   I also used another freebie stamp set called Amazing You, and I added a strip of Tutti Fruit dsp.  Love that stack!  I used Calypso Coral and Dapper Denim, in case you were wondering.  Just click the photos to view details or purchase.

Cleaning up the mess!

I have been addicted to the Petal Passion designer series paper!  I love coloring it with my Stampin' Blends.  I made a few cards with the Petal Palette bundle (okay, more than a few), had some scraps on my desk and decided to clean it up.  I simply adhered the papers (this is the backside of the pretty floral pattern), flower and sentiment piece to a thick whisper white base and I was done!  My desk is now clear so that I can mess it up again tonight!  I would love it if you left me a comment to let me know what you think of my mess! 

The Petal Passion paper can be found here:

Paper Pumpkin - Feb. Alternatives

You know I love my Paper Pumpkin, right?  I got my February kit and made two of the kit cards and then made two of my own.  I think this month's is really pretty!  There are so many things you can do to change it up as well.

Instead of using the pretty flowered dsp, I decided to put Island Indigo and Melon Mambo behind the Thank You die cut.  Quick tip:  before you pull off the label shape, rub the letters down so they stay behind.  Then you can use the letters on another project.  I will try to post an easy way to do that later.

Here is the kit card.  Pretty, right?  Did I tell you how much I adore these envelopes?!!

Here is one using Melon Mambo as a base and backing for the letters.

And this one uses Island Indigo.

You could also use Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, there are lots of options!  Let me know what you think.  If you're interested in ordering Paper Pumpkin, just click on the flower to the right or scroll to my previous post.  They are so much fun!

Myths & Magic

I promised to post a card using the adorable Myths and Magic suite quite a while back.  I was really busy getting ready for my open house event and didn't have the chance.  I won this cute set at OnStage back in November and I was thrilled!  I have two grandchildren to make cards for and I know they will love these characters.  I also thought the wizard could be used to make a masculine grown up card, or even a female one.  Would you use this stamp set for an adult card?  Click to check it out or purchase it.  Can't wait to make a mermaid card!
