Apple Blossom Time

Hello To All My Stampin' Friends – Welcome to Monday  I had two exciting things happen this weekend.  First the St. Peters Royals Girls Softball team won they tournament over in Ferguson this week end.  They are the champs and it just so happens that my Kourtney came in and saved the day.  Congrats Kourtney you did a great job under all that pressure.  My second good thing is I got my cabinets hung and they look so pretty in my craft room.  I was worried that they wouldn't fit in, in such a small space (10 x 10) but I was wrong they look so nice and it makes the room look finished.  My only problem now is I can't decide what to put in them.  LOL  Today's card turned out sooooooo cute.  I used some of the new and upcoming new products from Stampin' Up.  Apple Blossom Stmapin' Up Summer Mini Last Chance ListThe colors are Marina Mist and Daffadil Delight.  Both of these can be ordered on July 1st.  My stamp set is a darling one, it is a Level 2 Hostess Set called Apple Blossom #120139.  The stamps that got me are the flowers and the stems.  Cool tools are of course my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle #2 Die Cut #113469 and my Circle Scissors Plus #112530 and the Glass Mat #112530 for the 3" circle.  The Butterfly Wings Embosslits Die #118138 added that special touch to help make the card pop.  My sentiment is from the new set called Occasional Quotes a Level 3 Hostess Set #120142.  I also used my paper piercer on my scallop circle, sometimes it just needs a little something to give it some additional depth.  Oh don't forget the bling, I added a little bling for some sparkle.  Guess What in the new catty Stampin' Up will be offering some of its own bling.  Half backed clear rhinestones and pearls.  Yippie!!!!!!! 

Time is growing short, but you too could have the opportunity to buy some of the pre order products from the new catty by joinging the Stampin' Up Family and Sandy's Stampers for only $99, but don't delay offer ends on Jun 30th.  Click here for all the details on how to Join My Team.  My password is SandyMurphy.  We would love to have you.

Apple Blossom Sneek Peek – Level 2 Hostess Set

Hello Friends – Happy Saturday.  Hopefully by now you have had your cup of coffee and are raring to go.  We started a new tourny last night and the girsl won, so they play today around 3:00pm.  That's a late start for the day to begin and the hottest part of the day.  Oh Well, GO ROYALS!!!!!!!!!!!  I've been working on some new layouts using some of that new rubba and new colors.  I always am color challenged with new colors in the beginning.  We only get just a few sneek peek items to work with and that makes it harder to coordinate like you want to.  July 1st can't get here fast enough.  Stampin' Up Apple Blossom Level 2 Hostess Set Summer Mini Last Chance ListSo this is what I put together.  I used WW cardstock as my base and matted it with Daffadil Delight and matted again with Cherry Cobbler.  My go to stamp set this time is Apple Blossoms.  This set is a Level 2 Hostess set and can be yours for FREE when you have a workshop of $300 or more.  Schedule your July workshop today.  For my Cool Tools I used the ever popular Top Note Die Cut and my Big Shot Machine, my 3/4" circle punch and my 1" circle punch.  Attached them to my stem and viola' you havea very cute card to make someone's day.  I cut another Top Note and cute it down and added my sentiment.  Pul a little bling on and a pretty strip of WW Satin Ribbon.  The satin ribbon ties like a dream.  I want to decorate the inside just a bit, but not sure what I'm going to use it for just yet, so I'll wait to decorate it when I need it.

Sneek Peek – Because I Care Level 1 Hostess Set

Hello Friends = Happy Friday To Ya.  Another tournament week end, starts tonight, I hope we don't get fried out there.  LOL  I have been playing just a tad and today I have a wonderful Level 1 Hostess set to share with you.  You can get this set for FREE.  I'll explain more later on how to get this set for FREE.  My cardstock is the new Early Expresso.  Choc Chip has always been our go to color for a lot of occasions.  There's a new guy in town called Early Expresso that is even richer in color  than Choc Chip.  I hope you love the color as much as I do.  I matted with another new color called Blushing Bride.  Because I Care Stampin' Up Level 1 Hostess Summer Mini Last Chance Retired ListIt is one of the new In Colors for this year.  I aged my Blushing Bride when I stamped it in EE with the Well Sanded background stamp. Then I topped it with a strip of WW punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and matted with a piece of designer paper from the retired Sweet Pea series.  For some reason when I placed my sneek peek order I didn't order any new designer papers using the new colors.  I must of been having a brain freeze that day.  LOL  The stamp itself is stamped in Black Stazon and colored in with markers.  It's so nice now that we have markers for all of our colors, expecially the new In- Colors.  My first marker was Blushing Bride, I filled it in lightly because the hard work has been done for you.  The stamp is so detailed that little shading is required.  To add some pop and depth to the flower I did use Regal Rose as my shading color.  For the leaves I  used the new Pear Pizzazz.  Oh what a great green this is.  All of the new In-Colors are just great.  I know you are gonna love them.  For a little more glitz I did use some of our new Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer on pg 15 of the Summer Mini #118772.  It's hard to see all the sparkle but it's there.   For my cool tools I did use a 1/4 hand held punch to add my WW Satin Ribbon.  For just a little bit more detail and to help cover up of large hole I just punch, I thought what the heck I'll just use a large brad from one of my Hodgepodge Kits that I never think to use.  Stampers, we have got to get over saving all this stuff.  Use it up.  There's always more beautiful stuff to purchase and of course we eventually run out of space saving it all.  My stamp room is in the middle of a revamp and it is drving me crazy.  I can't find anything because I just rearranged it and I have a lot of retired stuff that i don't have any place to go with. I hope to have a lot of this stuff available at my Open House on July 5th or maybe a big virtual GARAGE SALE IS COMING.  i'll have to think about that.  LOL  Well I hope you enjoy the card and are  just as excited about the new catty that is about to be released.  I'm expecting the catty's any day now.  Please don't hesitate to ask any questions about anything that is pictured on my blog.  I'm here to help you be the best papercrafter that you can be.  Thats the fun part of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  Thanks for stopping by today, have a great Friday.  Toodles

Good Morining My Friends – Happy Friday – I almost didn't have anything to share this morning.  I have some issues around the house that I must address so 'm going to be in and out till the the catty release on Jul 1st.  I sat down and came up with this happy card.  It's an All Occasion Card so it can be used for just about anything you like.  I'm still triying to use up some of my retiring DP.  Last Chance List Priceless Summer MiniThe colors for this cutie are Dusty Darango, Old Olive and Hawaii Papaya DP.  I thought that paper was great and I still have a whole package of it.  LOL  for my Stamp Set I used Priceless #115052.  This is a great set.  It has 11 stamps in it and it's one of those sets where you can use all 11 stamps.  They are all just cute as a button.  Inks are Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Choc Chip.  Added a little Dusty Durango ribbon and some bling for sparkle.  My saying is from Stem Sayings #115078.  If you hurry and place an order you can probably still get this stamp before it retires on Jun 30th.

Hello Friends – Happy Wednesday To You All —  I'm excited today, Stamp Club is finally here and I am hostess this month.  I will be placing my first order for some new rubba and stuff.  I'm so looking forward to getting a peek at the new catty.  I know some of you already have seen it, i'm so jealous.  LOL   I am still working on gifts for the auctions and my Open House.  Today I have a card kit that I made up.  The idea came from the very talented Michelle Wooderson at Mish Mash.  I just love her style.  There is very little stamping on the card most of it is retired papers that I'm trying to use up.  Never will happen.  LOL  Colors are mostly Brocade Blue and Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava.  I'm so glad to see Wild Wasabi coming back it is a beautiful green.  Thanks for stopping in today and let me pass on this personal invitation to my Open House on July 5th.  I will be posting more info later.  Have a great day.  Toodles
