More Razzle Dazzle

I hope you enjoyed the Blog Tour and have recovered from looking at 79 blogs, if you did all 4 tours! Here are a couple other examples I did using the Razzle Dazzle set that I didn't get to show you during the tour due to the limited number of pictures we were to post.

This sample showcases only one color, Rich Razzleberry, along with Basic Gray for the base. Also featured is the polka dotted ribbon in the new in colors. The Modern Label and Word Window punches were used.

The other sample using the Big Shot is the Bitty Box and Envelope set. Also used was the scalloped circle punch and white grosgrain ribbon.

And here is the inside of the card shown on the tour, as promised. I used the Look Here die with the Big Shot, but instead of placing a gift card in it, I simply stamped on piece of cardstock and inserted that. Also used was the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP.

Royal Blog Tour

**Links have been removed for the tour, but you can still enjoy my samples

This castle features the stamp set Razzle Dazzle and the new in colors. The first sample features the in-colors Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo cardstock, Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry ink pads, and the new in color markers Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo. Finally, the the punches include the eyelet border punch, Modern Label punch, ticket corner punch and the Word Window punch.

Next, is the circle scalloped card. I used the Big Shot to cut out the Scalloped Circle and Circle for the case base. And then I used Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry ink. Also, the polka dotted ribbon again, along with the Modern Label and Word Window punches.

Using Melon Mambo cardstock for the base, this sample also shows the rock-n-roll technique with the Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo ink. Finally, the scalloped border punch was also used. Stop by next week to see the inside of the card that uses the Look Here die.

My final sample I also used as a WOW swap and again utilized the in color cardstock and polka dot ribbon. Whisper White Craft ink and the white jumbo grommet were also used.

Pocket Silhouettes

Again, where have I been? This time I actually have an answer for you. Preparing for the Royal Blog Tour and a Stamping' From the Heart event. In preparation for this event, myself and Laurie Lenertz (a fellow demonstrator) are holding workshops for several girl scout troops so they can help us stamp the cards for the troops at the main event on August 9. At this event we hope to make at least 800 Christmas cards for the troops. That being said, we have also designed 8 different Christmas cards for this event. Click on the button on my side bar for more infomation.

I have attached one of the cards that we will be making at the workshops for the girl scouts, featuring Pocket Sillouettes.

More Lovely Flowers Samples

Here are some more ideas I have come up with the Lovely Flowers Bundle. The first and last sample I have used in a swap and the middle example, with the dyed ribbon, I am not sure if it's swap worthy and dying the ribbon is quite a mess. All colors are in-color besides the Whisper White. Remember, today is the last day to qualify for the BLOG CANDY!

Happy Belated Fourth of July!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July. Along, with America, I celebrated my 29th birthday this weekend (on the third) and to celebrate, I'm giving away BLOG CANDY! It will be the Heart to Heart punch from SU! I accidentally ordered a duplicate of this punch and thought I'd share my mistake with all you lovely readers. You can enter several different ways, leave a comment, share a sample using the Lovely Flowers Bunch hostess set, subscribe to my blog. You will get one entry for each item you complete. Please be sure to leave your email address and the number of items you complete. Drawing will be held on Friday, July 10th.

Why samples from the Lovely Flower Bunch? I am participating in a 2 for 1 swap on splitcoast and my set is the Lovely Flower Bunch. I need to make 2 different cards with this set and since it's a swap, I need to be able to reproduce it many times. One of my samples using the Lovely Flower Bunch is below, but I can't reproduce this many times since it's using one of the rub-ons.

Today, I am also sharing with you a stamp camp project I created using the Top Note and Matchbox drawers die cut. I do have a tutorial, but will share it later. I am part of a Stamp Camp swap where we all create a stamp camp project and tutorial and then we will get a CD of the tutorials. I will share my tutorial after the swap due date. I used Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and Oval All stamp set.

Happy New Year!

Okay, so it's the new year for Stampin' Up! and the new catalog. To celebrate I have a few samples made with the new In Colors and new stamp sets.

Where have I been? Good question. But it hasn't been here updating my blog, and I'm so sorry about that. I can't believe how the time as flown and the years is half over! To make up for lost time, I will be posting two samples, both using Circle Circus (a new stamp set) and the new In Color paper and inks. The new In Colors are Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Mango Mellon, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango. This is all of the top of my head, so I may have some words mixed up or a slight variation, so please forgive me. Also used was Think Happy Thoughts stamp set and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP (also off the top of my head).
