First off, I have to say I just can not stop stamping and creating with the
THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES BUNDLE!!!!!

It is fabulous!!!!  If you have not picked it up yet, make sure you do soon.  It's only available in August, but there is a chance it might not even last until the end of the month!!

Anyways, let's chat about today's card.....

THIS IS WAY OUT OF THE BOX FOR ME.
WHITE AND VANILLA TOGETHER????

If you would have told me to try it I would have said you are nuts!!!

(it was super hard to photograph this!)

Like I said--way out of the box but I really do love the effect.
I think I will be using White and Vanilla together again in the future!!!!

New Sketch Challenge + 2 Fun Ideas



I love Friday's because I get to share 2 things with you!

1.  A sketch Challenge
2.  a couple of fun "random" cards using the sketch



Why do I say RANDOM?

As you know, I usually like to share things in sets!

I usually post a CARD SERIES because I like to show you how easy it is to make several different cards from

ONE STAMP SET & MINIMAL SUPPLIES

thus, STAMPING MADE SIMPLE!

On Friday's, when I share a sketch challenge, I like to create just a single card, with "whatever" products to use the sketch!  So, you just never know what kind of project you might get from me.

So, here is today's sketch:


Remember.....this is just a "sketch."  You can interpret anyway you want!!!!
Colors mean nothing--use stamps & colors that you want to use!
The layers can be cardstock, Designer Paper, ribbon, embossed cardstock, or ???
Use this sketch as a rough guide!

Sometimes we just need a little guidance to get our creative juices flowing.....

I challenge you to create something using this sketch!

If you play along, make sure to share your card on the
Bringing Birthdays Back Facebook Group

Here are a couple of samples for you using this sketch:

Super Simple......let the DSP do the work!
Haven't used WASHI TAPE in awhile--so that was kinda fun to add that this week!

Want to create this card?  Just click on any of the pictures below to order the supplies!





And here is another sample......


Another fun card with FISHIES.......they just make me smile!

Want to create this card?  Just click on any of the pictures below to order the supplies!

Now it is YOUR turn!  What will you create with this week's sketch?
Give it a try and head over to the BRINGING BIRTHDAYS BACK Facebook Group and share!  I can't wait to see what YOU create!


SHARE YOUR CREATIONS ON THIS GROUP:


FUN FACEBOOK GROUP--just for birthday card sharing!!!
I share 2-4 ideas every week with project sheets


If you have any questions about this project or anything Stampin' Up! please contact me.  And...if you are looking for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator--I would be honored to be yours.  I have been a full-time demonstrator for 21 years--I love what I do and I love to help others enjoy their creativity!

              Meet the DSPs......Introducing Blooms & Bliss

              Welcome to episode #7 of MEET THE DSP'S.  I love DSP and I just don't think the catalog gives them the credit they deserve!

              Each week we are going to "MEET" one of them-up close and personal!  I just know, that once you meet them, you will agree--we have the best darn paper in the industry!!!

              But remember, NEVER HOARD YOUR PAPER!!!

              BUY IT.....USE IT.....REPEAT!

              Throughout these episodes, I will also share some projects with you that you can create using different DSP's.  Some projects may feature retired papers, but, you can still take the idea and use with current papers!


              So, without further ado.......BLOOMS & BLISS




              This paper is just plain ole PRETTY!!!!!
              I love the color combination!


              Here are the QUICK & EASY cards I made....

              One again we are doing some super easy cards!
              LET THE PAPER DO THE WORK!!!



              This is actually a project that I created and featured a year or so ago and
              have downloadable instructions.

              These cards are super fast and easy!  Great for when you need a lot!

              Let the GORGEOUS DSP do the work!

              Here is the original version--click on the picture to download and print.
              It has all the measurements and instructions to make these quick & easy cards with DSP




              Here are most of the products that I used on these cards.  Click on any of the pictures to go to my online store and place an order!





              As you are falling in love with all the DSP's, do you struggle knowing what colors coordinate with each of the papers???  Here is a handy dandy little chart I made up that shows all the papers along with the coordinating colors.  I printed it out and put into a sheet protector to keep on my stamping desk!  I use it all the time.  I hope it is also a great resource for you!
