Hi Stamping Friends!

I'm going out on the freshly plowed roads today for a private class with my hostess, Lynn!  I can't wait!  Check out the lovely cards we'll be creating at her event!

Lynns class cards

These cards were hand-picked by Lynn and I get the feeling that she loves butterflies!  So do I!  I can't wait to make these projects with her and her stamping friends! 

Gather Your Friends & Let's Stamp!  Now is a great time to be a Hostess because you can earn $25 in extra dollars to spend for a $250 workshop during Sale-A-Bration.  There is still time to schedule in March if we start right away!  Contact me today and let's customize a workshop for you and your friends!


Happy Little Projects! 

Today, I'm sharing a couple of our Too Cool Team swaps from February.  Both cards feature the A Happy Thing stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, which you can earn with your $50 order.  They also both feature Blendabilities Markers.* 

*Unfortunately, Blendabilities Markers are temporarily unavailable as Stampin' Up! works out a quality issue. 

Jodi - a happy thing birdie copy

#1 A Happy Little Birdie—Jodi Geers created this lovely card with a bright little bird!  I love the combination of Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder!  So striking! 

Background Basics—She stamped her card base with the lines image from Gorgeous Grunge in Calypso Coral for a subtle background pattern, then layered on a 4-1/4" x 2" piece of Best Year Ever Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper.

Floral Banner—The birdie is resting on a Wisteria Wonder banner that was die-cut with the Banners Framelits and embossed with the Spring Flowers Texture Impressions Folder.

Sparkly Bird—Jodi stamped the bird image in Memento Black ink, then colored and shaded him with Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral Blendabilities Markers.  The branch is colored with a brown from the Skin Tones Blendabilities assortment and the beak is in Daffodil Delight.

For some extra sparkly & textured awesomeness, Jodi added some Dazzling Details glitter glue to the bird and leaves.  She hand-cut this little guy out and popped him up with Dimensionals for a truly fantastic focal point!

Sweet Sentiment—The greeting is stamped in Calypso Coral onto a skinny strip of Whisper White.  Jodi used the Word Window Punch to round the corners by feeding the strip through the bottom of the punch to only cut one side at a time.  What a fun little trick!

Kathe - a happy thing lemon copy   

#2 Happy Little Lemon—Kathe Madsen created this cheerful "thinking of you" card featuring the lemon from A Happy Thing stamp set.

Background Basics—Kathe adhered a 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" piece of the Sale-A-Bration's Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper onto a So Saffron card base for a foundation for her focal point.

Lovely Lemon—She stamped the lemon image in Memento Black ink onto a 2-3/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Whisper White and matted that onto a 2-1/2' x 3-1/4" piece of Old Olive card stock.  Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities Markers were used to color in the lemon and leaves.  This image is so fun to color and shade! 

Kathe - a happy thing lemon 3 copy   

Sweet Sentiment—Kathe stamped the greeting from A Happy Thing in Old Olive on Whisper White, then punched it out with the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle Punch.  She layered it with Dimensionals onto an Old Olive 1-3/8" Circle punch-out.  A Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon adds some soft texture behind the sentiment.
