Happy Day!

Hello all!

It's definitely time to share another project with you guys! I decided on this card for Saturday Stampin' and I absolutely love it. The flower on this card is from one of my favorite sets; it's called "Mixed Bunch". It comes with three different flower designs but what I love most is that Stampin' Up! has an awesome coordinating punch that allows you to perfectly punch out the awesome flower you just stamped! It really is the easiest thing ever; so awesome!

For the flower on this card, I used a technique I lovingly called the "Hula Hoop" technique. You stamp the entire image in the lighter color (in this case it's the pumpkin pie) and then you roll the edge of the stamp around a darker color (melon mambo). It's a fun circular motion that completely reminds me of hula hooping as a kid! It gives the image a nice dual color look, I think the bright colors of the flower really make this card pop.

Also on this card, I used another great technique, and honestly I have no name for it. Ha! You see the cute little circular flower burst things on the base card stock? Yeah that's what I'm talking about. I used one of the circle stamps from Mixed Bunch and stamped it randomly on the Pumpkin Pie card stock in... wait for it... Pumpkin Pie ink! I know! Crazy, right?!? It gives some nice contrast to the background without being too fancy.


Stamp Sets: Mixed Bunch and Friendly Phrases
Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Early Espresso
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Blossom Punch, 3/8" Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon and Stampin' Dimensionals

I guess this card was just my attempt to try and get spring to hurry up and be here! Thanks for stopping by guys!

Whole Latte Love

Time to share my first card! I know what you're all thinking; "Finally!"

This card is one I made for an event called Saturday Stampin'. Saturday Stampin' is a "stamp camp" that costs only $10 per person, each person makes 8 cards; 2 each of 4 simple but awesome cards. I design 2 of the cards and my friend and up-line, Jennifer Thomas, design the other 2! It's a really fun event that allows everyone (whether or not you've ever stamped before) to get together, have some fun and create something awesome!


Usually for Saturday Stampin' cards I venture over to splitcoaststampers.com and look for inspiration. This card is CASE'd from a card done by Cindy Malone. For those of you who don't know what CASE'd means, it's a anagram that means Copy And Share Everything. Stampin' Up! really encourages everyone to share ideas and designs.



Stamp Sets: Patterned Occasions (SAB)
Card Stock: Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo
Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Calypso Coral 
Accessories: Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Pool Party Satin Ribbon (SAB),1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch

Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is an awesome promotion that Stampin' Up does. It allows YOU to earn free product (like the stamp set and the ribbon used in the card above. It really is a great deal and you should definitely check it out here, Sale-A-Bration

Hello!

Unfortunately I don't have anything fun for this post. It's really more of a test to make sure the blog is up and running the way it's supposed to! Yay for the technical side of things, haha. Anyway, I promise that post number three will have an awesome project for you guys to "ooo" and "aww" over!

First Post! Whoo!


Hi There!

I’m Delaney and this is my attempt to document all my craft adventures. I’m a Stampin’ Up demonstrator so most of the projects I upload will be cards and other Stampin’ Up creations but I like to throw in some other projects from time to time, so hopefully you’ll all stay entertained! Thanks for stopping by! I’ll try and get some projects up the beginning of this week.
