World Card Making Day Blog Hop 2017

Hi Everyone, 
We have got a fabulous Blog Hop for you today! I hope you enjoy it.

I've been into Clean & Simple lately and wanted to build a class with that in mind.
What better way than to use our fabulous "Year of Cheer" Specialty Designer Series Paper. 
Sometimes Designer Paper just speaks for itself. Even a smidgen of it. lol
I will do this class using the Copper only. 

Here are the two cards I am sharing...hope you like them. I am working on one more I will share later. 

For this card I used 1/4" steps of our yummy Copper Foil Paper and glued them right to the card base.  

I then added a mat of Copper and a white image piece embossed with the Copper Embossing Powder.   See the little leaves? they were cut out of the DSP I am using on my next card. 
I also used the tiny line of dots die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits to add a little interest to this simple card. 

This Designer Paper is from the same Pack and so, so beautiful. Talk about speaking for itself! I added a Copper Foil Mat and just a strip of Champagne to the right side to break it up and tie it all together. 
Tip: I cut the leaves for the previous card out of the DSP and added the Circle Sentiment to cover it. 

Now it's time to be inspired by the rest of the Blog Hop Participants. 

Here are a list of supplies if you'd like to create your own.
Thanks for stopping in today!  
Enjoy the Hop!

Feeling of Christmas

Hi Everyone,
It has been so crazy busy here but I wanted to share a little card I did using the "Feeling of Christmas Stamp Set"
Isn't that Wreath just the most delicate thing you've ever seen? It was so relaxing to just sit and color it. I love to watercolor so it was fun for me. 

Just so you don't think I've fallen off the face of the earth I want to share a few pictures of a special Charity Event I had. Guess who came to it?

Recognize this Beautiful Lady? You're right? It's Shelli Gardner...Founder of Stampin' Up! What a fabulous day we had for our Charity Event. She really made it so special. Here are a few more pictures of our packed house.

My Fabulous Team of Girls that work the Events with me. 

Shelli speaking to our Stampers

Just some of the School Supplies we collected for "The Giving Closet" here in Jacksonville. These School Supplies helped so many children who would have done without. Makes my Heart giddy that we can help like that. Of course we have great Stampers with Big Hearts that make this all possible!

That't it for today...just wanted to pop in and say hello and do a little sharing.

See you soon.

Hot Daisy Delight

Hi Everyone,
I'm just getting to play with this new Daisy Delight Stamp Set from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog and I'm having a blast with it. 
Gotta say this set is a must have in my book!

You know me....I love using stamps to make my own fun backgrounds and couldn't resist using the Daisy stamp to make this one. It's one Hot Daisy, don't you think?

So not only do I like to create backgrounds...I love creating texture of different feels by sponging onto white. You can stay in the same color family that way and have the intensity you are looking for. The Tangerine Tango was sponged onto the white cardstock to create my colored mat on here. 
So much fun. What do you think? It's not just a flat color but one of texture and feels wonderful. Something about that ink on paper! lol

I hope you enjoyed my little share today....

BTW...new Catalog is coming! Do you have yours coming? If you don't have a Demonstrator and would like one let me know.....just hit the contact me button at the top of my blog.

See ya next time!
