BLOG HOP: Share it Sunday with Stampin' Up! Darling Donkeys and Field & Flower DSP from Sale-a-Bration

Hello and Happy Sunday everyone! It's time for this month's Share it Sunday blog hop, woohoo! 🎉 As today is the last day of Sale-a-Bration, I'm sharing two cards with similar layouts and colors. Both use the amazing Flower & Field DSP and one of them uses my favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set... Darling Donkeys



Happy Saturday, and welcome to a Paper Pumpkin blog hop! February's Paper Pumpkin kit, Bouquet of Hope, is uplifting and empowering with sentiments like "Thinking of You." Something else that's awesome?! It coordinates with the Flower and Field 6" x 6" Sale-a-Bration DSP! I love the coordination here, especially because I've been able to stock up on this DSP during Sale-a-Bration. By the way, can you believe that Sale-a-Bration ends TOMORROW (Feb 28)?!

Below are two super cute and quick samples using the stamp set and DSP. Be sure to scroll all the way through to see both samples!


Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Card

In my email newsletter last week, I shared a sneak peek of this card, and I'm so excited to share the whole thing today! I recently purchased the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and couldn't wait to use them! I paired them with the Fancy Phrases stamp set and adorable Paper Blooms Sale-a-Bration DSP (leaving this week!)

Swaps Saturday: Samples from 6 Stamp Sets

Hello, I hope you're having a great start to your weekend! Today I'm excited to share some swap cards I received recently from other Demonstrators!

Sale-a-Bration ends in just one week, so make sure to view the freebies and get them while you still can!

On the watermark of each card, you'll see the name of the original Demonstrator who designed that card. Let's view the cards!

Hello and happy Friday! Can you believe that Sale-a-Bration is nearly over?! I know I can't. I've been really loving playing with the stamp sets and paper packs in this Sale-a-Bration brochure, and today I'm so excited to share two samples with you using the A Touch of Ink stamp set! This stamp set can be earned for FREE with a $100 order in my online store! Be sure to scroll all the way through today's post to see both card samples.


BLOG HOP: Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus Card

Hello, and welcome to a spring blog hop today! Here in Minnesota, the highs have been below zero for a few weeks now (and that doesn't include windchill)! So, I'm excited to be participating in a SPRING blog hop today to feel a little bit warmer!

The card I'm sharing today uses the Flowering Cactus Product Medley, which can be found in the first few pages of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. I absolutely love this product medley, and how simple it is to create with - you also get an amazing set of supplies including stamps, dies, paper, ribbon, and felt flowers!

Stampin' Up! Lots of Heart Card

Even though Valentine's Day is past us, I have still been loving to create with the Lots of Heart bundle! Do you remember the die cutting technique I shared last week on how to use your dies to emboss instead of cut? If you didn't catch my video tutorial, you can view it here.

After filming that video, I had the extra piece of Basic White leftover, and I used it to make the card I'm sharing today!

BLOG HOP: Love is in the Air with Stampin' Up's Moving Along Stamp Set!

Hello and Happy Saturday, everyone! I am so excited to be participating in my FIRST Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop today! If you are new here, I'd like to share a little bit about myself! My name is Melissa and I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota in the USA. I have been stamping since I was 17 and I've been a demo for just shy of 5 years (my 5th anniversary is in March!). I love to create and to share that fun with everyone! I hope you enjoy the cards I'm sharing today, and be sure to "hop along" and view some other inspiration too!

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Spotlight: Flower and Field DSP

Happy Friday! Welcome to another Sale-a-Bration Spotlight. Today I am featuring the adorable Flower and Field DSP! I think this is my favorite DSP in the whole brochure. Below, I've shared two samples using this DSP. Be sure to scroll through to see both of them! And don't forget, Sale-a-Bration ends on February 28 this year (NOT March!). This paper is FREE with a $50 order in my online store!


BLOG HOP: "Friends" Inspired Card using Playful Alphabet and Stitched Triangle Dies

Today I'm participating in the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop! Our theme is "Movies & TV Shows." I'll be honest, I had to think of an idea for this blog hop for a few weeks, but finally had an idea come to me! My favorite TV show is "FRIENDS," so I created an appropriately themed card!

BLOG HOP: How to Use Your Dies to Emboss (Instead of Cutting!)

Hello and happy Tuesday, everyone! Today I'm excited to be sharing one of my favorite die-cutting techniques in this similarly-themed blog hop! Once you see my technique, be sure to hop along and see other techniques too. 

My favorite die cutting technique (at least currently!) is to use my dies to emboss, instead of cutting. Some dies are great for creating backgrounds and I love to use them as such. My final card today was also designed for this week's Heart Themed Challenge over at The Paper Players (PP527).

BLOG HOP: Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry February Customer Thank You Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm so excited to share my February Customer Thank You cards with you all today! If you live in the US and need to place an order this month, I will happily send you this card as a thank you! This month, I decided to use the adorable Sweet Strawberry stamp set! 

Swaps Saturday: 9 Samples from 4 Stamp Sets in the Mini Catalog

Hello and Happy Saturday! Today I'm super excited to share 9 samples from 4 different stamp sets in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog! All of these cards were received in swaps that I've participated in recently, and you can see the original creator in the watermark of each of the photos.

The stamp sets featured here are: Flowering Cactus (pages 8-9), Happy Thoughts (page 28), Simply Succulents (page 39), and Floating and Flowering (page 61). 

I hope you find some great inspiration from these cards! They are so stunning and I love the texture of each of them. I can't wait to craft some of these this weekend! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
