Simply Wonderful

TSSC359One of my very favorite things from the new catalog was the Moonlight dsp paper stack.  I love the colors and the designs of the paper.  When I was looking at the sketch Mary Jo gave us for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge this week, I decided it was time to pull out that paper and use that for my inspiration!

Yes…it’s the butterfly again.  I do love these butterflies…they are just sooo pretty and REALLY pretty in Blackberry Bliss.

Here’s the details –

  • Sahara Sand – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Dotted print (Moonlight dsp paper stack) – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 3.  Stamp greeting using Sahara Sand, cut into a panel, add to card front.
  • Hello Honey grid print (Moonlight dsp paper stack) – 1 1/4 x 5 1/2 add Sahara Sand Scallop Edge (sponge edges with Sahara Sand) added to right side, Blackberry bliss – 3/4 x 5 1/2 added to the left side.
  • Cut medium butterfly out of Blackberry Bliss, add to card front.
  • Tie Whisper White Baker’s Twine into smallest silver Basic Metal Button and add to butterfly using dimensionals.

TSSC359Okay…I took a little ‘artistic license’ with this one too!  I hope you can join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Tour de Freaks – February

freakwelcome2013Welcome everyone to the February Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!  This month we are all ‘Sale-a-brating’ in style!  With only a little more than a month left to get what you want from the SAB brochure – here’s a create way to get some super ideas from the amazing Control Freak stampers!

If you are going forward through the hop, you arrived here from Heidi Boos and her Stuck On Stampin’ Blog!  She has just such a fun style!  LOVE it!

I can’t decide what I like the most about SAB so here’s two fun projects I did…

TriangleBoxThese fun ‘triangle’ favors were shown at Leadership this year.  I didn’t get a chance to go but I thought this would be so much fun for my group that met Tuesday night.  They really did enjoy it!  Here’s a picture of how I cut it and the cutting/scoring directions.

TriangleBox2I made mine a little smaller than what was shown but you can get 8 (size 2 1/2 x 6) out of a sheet of dsp which is wonderful!  I used the Best Year Ever SAB dsp, Simply Wonderful Stamp Set for the greeting, the Bouquet Bigz Die, and the Best Year Ever SAB buttons (LOVE THESE!!!).  Super fun and easy to make!


The Bokeh technique is all the rage right now and the other day I wanted to sit down and play with it!  (I had a little break from school work!).  I decided to base my colors on the SAB colors in the accessory pack – Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Coastal Cabana.  I used these colors to create the background panel (on Whisper White), then cut out some circles from a window sheet to create my ‘lights’ using White CRAFT ink.  Such a fun technique and if you don’t know how to do it you can find a TON of tutorials – just ‘Google it’.  Besides featuring the colors, my card uses the Best Day Ever SAB set and the Best Year Ever Accessory pack for the ribbon and button.

Here’s a picture of my projects together…


Now it’s time to head over to Dawn Olchefske’s Do Stamping with Dawn blog.  I alwasy just love her projects!


Until next time – HAPPY STAMPIN’!
