Stampin’ Up in the Air with FMS #22

[pinit]As I head out the door to what I hope to be my last temporary duty assignment overseas (not Hawaii this time), I needed a card idea that was “out of my comfort zone”…so I chose colors I seldom use.  I put this birthday card together for the {Freshly Made} Sketches #22.  I enjoy using every bit of paper from my inventory, but I often find myself neglecting some of the prints I don’t know how to use.  I pulled out a print that I had not used before and whala.  Continue reading below to find out about how to get free stamp sets from me through my Mata-bout Paper Rewards.

MATA-BOUT TIP: Pearls don’t always have to be white or vanilla color… it’s easy to change the colors with the use of a colored sharpie. I wanted the pearl color to stand out in the center of the flowers. Rhinestones can also be colored in to add a little bit of bright bling to any project.  All supplies needed to duplicate any of my cards are available through my on-line store and you can browse through it 24 hours 7 days a week!

Pals February 2012 Blog Hop

It’s the occasion of the year as the Stampin’ Pretty Pals share some fabulous cards and projects featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products on today’s Pals Blog Hop!

You’ve probably hopped over from Jennifer Takacs at My Stampin’ Blog, I’m stop number 14 on the Pals Hop and I’m glad you hopped in!  I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for paper projects showcasing Stampin’ Up!’s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals!  Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track.

This is my one of a kind non-traditional Valentine’s Day Card.  It is the first time I’ve used the Labels Collection framelits and I absolutely love them!  You will definitely see more cards made with these in the very near future.  The stamps are from two separate sets both available now in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I love how Stampin’ Up! incorporated the bright bold colors of orange, baby blue, and red on one sheet of paper.  It opens up so many possibilities and allows individual creativity to shine through.

A quick hint to add a bit of dimension to any of your cards are to use Stampin’ Dimensionals to give your card a bit of a 3D effect.  I used them on the Everyday Enchantment DSP to add a slight raise to the Love stamped inside the framelit.  The gentle subtle pop of the paper allows the eyes to focus on the message of LOVE and doesn’t look flat against the Bashful Blue paper.

Please leave a comment when you get to stop #25 and give a shout out to the beautifully talented Pretty Pal, Nicole Watt at Impressions by Nicole for creating our blog hop badge and buttons!  She designed them using the Everyday Enchantments DSP from the SAB One Big Sale-A-Bration CD (127220).  If you haven’t done so already, make sure to download a free 30-day trial of My Digital Studio!

Sending Some Stampin’ Up! Love

Love is heard, seen, and felt. It is heard when kind words are spoken to complete strangers. A simple compliment or a hello will make a good day better.  Kind words of encouragement, a compliment, or a simple wave of the hand shows love for human kind.  It is seen with a hug, a blowing of a kiss, a pat on head, or a gesture of a thumbs up. Everyday we should strive to brighten someone’s day, even a stranger, your children, an aging parent, your spouse, or your co-workers.  It’s nice to hear the words, “Love You”, but a word said with love goes further than you think.  So, today and everyday, go ahead, give a stranger a thumbs up or a compliment (nice shoes, pretty dress, or your hair looks great!”).  Leave a comment and send some love my way… =)

If you haven’t downloaded the FREE 30-day trial of My Digital Studio… do it now! It’s absolutely FREE and you can play with it for 30 days.
