Here’s a classic example of the versatility of this bundle~ A pillow box gift: Perfect for a wedding gift or favor, or for a New Year treat!

The Kraft Pillow Box makes this project so simple! My favorite thing about the Color Your Season bundle has to be the labels: They come in 3 sizes (this is the smallest) and the stitching is on the label AND on the negative space (not shown in this example but you’ll see it along the blog hop).

While you could use the new watercolor pencils to color your projects, I chose to pull out my Stampin’ Blends. Did you know the Rich Razzleberry blends match the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon? It’s our color co-ordination shining through.

It took me less than 5 minutes to craft this project: Can you imagine? What a wonderful use of your creative time 🙂

Tell me how you like to color in the comments before you hop along to the next blog!NEXT

Meant to Be

Weddings and anniversaries are special occasions and a perfect reason to break out your rubber stamps and paper!

The TGIF Challenge reminded me of a technique I haven’t used for a while:tgif2bchallenge2bbuttons2b2018-017

It’s a simple way to get multiple colors on your stamps: Use the brush end of your Stampin’ Write markers (FYI: this doesn’t work with Stampin’ Blends markers) to color directly onto your stamps~

If you think it’s been too long and your ink may have dried up as you were adding more colors, simply “huff” on it like the big bad wolf just before stamping it onto your paper! The warm air from your breath will re-activate the ink: Watermarked(2018-03-26-1303)

I used the Powder Pink for the flowers (with a touch of Flirty Flamingo in the centers) and Old Olive for the leaves. You can find the Old Olive marker in the Brights marker collection 🙂

I hope you’ll try your hand at coloring on your stamps, too!

Falling For You: Love and Valentines Day

Ready for Valentines Day? Here’s a little inspiration to get you going:

This worked so well with the TGIF Sketch Challenge this week:

Perhaps you don’t have one special person yet: Don’t fret! This could also be a wedding or anniversary card, just by switching out the greeting (also included in the stamp set) and it’s fun that there are matching sentiments for each greeting to put on the inside (or as a “tag line” under the flourishing font of the main greeting).

Classy Black & Gold Wedding Wishes

Weddings are quite personal with color themes running through the events from invitations to decorations (and even the food!) so as often as I can, I create a card to match the occasion. But sometimes they come in bunches and I just need a card NOW, so I came up with this classy black and gold version that seems to do the trick for any formal event.

You can change the words and/or colors to make it a sympathy, birthday or thank you card (all included in the Rose Wonder stamp set!). Download the tutorial and shop in my Stampin’ Store for supplies to create your own.

A Gift Bag for the New Mr. & Mrs.

Is your refrigerator covered with wedding invitations like mine? 
You need to make a few of these to have on hand: Just drop in a gift and go! 

I’m kind of in love with the new Mint Macaron In-Color for 2015-2016: It’s so elegant! Paired with the new Tip-Top Taupe (another new In-Color) it’s a perfect marriage of color (pun intended). The gorgeous Dotted Lace trim comes in all 5 of the new hues, too. I picked up the handled-bag at the dollar store, but everything else can be found in my online store.

And if you don’t have the Bow Builder Punch, order it immediately. Seriously.

Serendipity that this coincides with the #TGIFC08 challenge and co-ordinates with their colors, too:

Thanks for checking in and wishing you wonderful weddings!

Wedding Wishes

Do you ever dream of crafting? I woke up this morning with the TGIF and Friday Mashup challenges on my mind along with a card floating around inside there, too! So I ignored all housework after exercising and spent a happy hour in my stamp studio…

…and these are the results:

For the first one I colored directly on the Something Lacy background stamp with my markers (Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder). 
Then I tried embossing Something Lacy on vellum cardstock and colored it from the back using the same colors: 

 Both turned out lovely and I’m prepared for 2 June weddings! #tgifc04 #fm210
