Birthday Bonanza Suite

I seriously love these little guys…introducing the adorable Bonanza Buddies!
Bonanza-Buddies-5And seeing as I’m in Australia right now, I thought it would be fitting to show you some adorable koala bear cards.

I received this card sample from Lisa Althouse before I left. She used the little pompom image to create a background…Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate cardstock.  And the tag is a die that comes in the Bonanza Dies. Isn’t it sweet?
Bonanza-Buddies-3And we made this one at our team meeting in January. (The design is Bronwyn Eastley’s.) How cute is this??!! Mini easel cards!
Bonanza-Buddies-1This is what the card base looks like.
Bonanza-Buddies-2You can make so many different easel cards using these Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Before I go, maybe you want to see some REAL koala bears :) This was from our last trip to Australia. My husband took these! To see koalas in the wild is pretty rare. We were thrilled to say the least.
Koala-Bear-1Seriously so crazy that he got these photos!

Coordination Product Release

Today I’d like to share with you some exciting new product. If you were around last February, Stampin’ Up! did the same thing where they released some coordinating products during Sale-a-bration. The coordination product was released after I had already left, so unfortunately I don’t have any samples to show you other than these flyers. But I think you’ll be inspired!
 Coordination-Product-Graphic-1

Coordination-Product-Graphic-2If you love ladybugs, that stamp set is absolutely adorable. And now those coordinating dies! Super cute!!

All this coordinating product is only going to be available while supplies last until the end of March. I especially love the Sending Flowers Dies. I have seen a ton of beautiful things done with that circle die.

The Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper is a must! It coordinates with 4 of our punches:
     1. The Heart Punch Pack (Mini Catalogue)
     2. The Tulip Builder Punch (Mini Catalogue)
     3. The Umbrella Builder Punch (Mini Catalogue)
     4. The Small Bloom Punch (Sale-a-bration Brochure)

So…what do you think? Which is your favorite?
If you haven’t already placed your Sale-a-bration order, these dies might convince you to get on it today. I would love it if you would place an order through my online store today.

All orders over $60 will receive an extra-special koala bear card and a package of champagne rhinestones from me.

Peaceful Poppies

This weekend I spent some time creating with the Peaceful Poppies Elements.
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-ImageYou can add artistic touches with these die-cut printed accents, perfect for watercoloring with your choice of coloring tools. There are 8 sheets in total: 2 sheets printed black elements; 2 sheets printed thick cardstock; 2 sheets printed vellum; and 2 sheets watercolor paper.

I challenged myself to use each of the accents at least once.

These first 3 cards used the die-cut printed accents so they were already colored.
The first idea came from Erica Cerwin…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-1JPGThen I came up with this birthday card. It’s probably my favorite…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-2JPGAnd a sympathy card…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-3JPGThe vellum pieces stumped me a bit at first, but then I simply used my blends markers to color the back side and then I placed them on black cardstock so the colors showed up a bit better…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-4JPGI love how it turned out. The label pieces are from the Painted Labels Dies and the brick background is made with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.

Then there are 2 sheets of watercolor paper with the poppy images clear embossed. These are so cool because you can sponge color…brayer color…blend with our Blends Markers…or color with an Aqua Painter on these elements. For this card, I used my Aqua Painter and the following colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Grapefruit Grove, Terracotta Tile, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock and Shaded Spruce.
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-5JPGThe white frame was made using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. So, so pretty!
Finally, I made this small thank you note card…
Peaceful-Poppies-Elements-6JPG I used Terracotta Tile and Blackberry Bliss to create an ombre effect. :)
That’s all for today.
I hope you’re inspired to order this beautiful package of Peaceful Poppies Elements.
