Tuesday Tip and Technique - Beautiful You


Starting something new this week - I'll be posting a video each week with a tip and technique each Tuesday.  Starting this week with paper piercing.  What is paper piercing?  There are 2 ways as crafters/card makers that we paper pierce - this week I'm showing you how to stamp on DSP (designer series paper)- fussy cut it out and piece it on to your stamped image.  Watch the video- 



Hope you enjoyed the video- leave a comment and let me know!

Don't forget that the DSP is on the retirement list and only while supplies last!

Dragonfly Dreams!

The ladies loved the cards they created tonight at the 3-2-1 class.  What is a 3-2-1 class you're asking?  $3 for 2 cards created in 1 hour.  A great class for those who say they have no time to create. I focused on the Dragonfly Dreams bundle for both cards.  Here is the first card-


No stamping on the front, but we stamped the greeting and some other images on the inside and the envelopes.  Love these colors together- Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum, with a hint of Silver.  

Quick, Simple Beautiful!

Don''t forget- only 10 days left of Sale A Bration- make sure to place your order before the Free product is gone!

Balloon Adventure!

Created a video for my blog post card- enjoy!

Remarkably Created Blog Tour- Party Animal



Welcome to the March edition of the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour.  We decided to focus on the Party Animal Suite on pages 4 & 5 of the Occasions Catalog.  I love the stamp set that is part of this Suite - Balloon Adventures #142823


Nothing goes together better then Balloons and Birthdays!

I decided to pair this stamp set with some of our 2015-2017 In colors that will be gone May 31, 2017 or while supplies last.  I love Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron so I used these colors on my card.





The balloons and the greeting on the card were stamped in Mint Macaron Classic Ink #138326. Watermelon Wonder  Classic Ink #138323 was used for the strings on the balloons on the envelope and for the banner on the card.  I also used Emerald Envy Classic Ink #141396 (2016-2018 In Color) for the one balloon on the envelope and the strings on the balloons on the card. Cardstock is Mint Macaron #138337, Watermelon Wonder #138334,  Emerald Envy #141415 and Whisper White #100730.  The Watermelon Wonder layer was embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder # 135817.  The final touch is the Emerald Envy star on the banner - this is from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes pack # 141410.  I popped up the balloons and the banner with Stampin' Dimensionals #104430 and used Snail Adhesive #104332 for the layers.  You'll need the a Whisper White Medium Envelope #107301 to mail your card.  

This is truly a 5 minute card to create.  Love clean and simple!


I hope you enjoyed my card - next stop is Arden-http://stampinarden.blogspot.com/20..

Blessings- Missy

STELLA!

The snow is falling here is South Central PA. This will be the "big" storm of the year, and we are expecting 8-12 inches of snow. After so many days of 70 degree weather, I'm sitting here saying "really mother nature".   Going to make the best of my snow day- up early today to get started in the studio- will be sharing lots of samples on my facebook page and some great ideas today.   

So, I thought I would run a special promotion during this storm. The name of this storm is Stella, and I just love-love-love our Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. 

They come in either clear or gold, and they are $8.00 (before shipping & tax).  But, if you place an order of $50.00 or more (before shipping & tax) in my online store and use Host Code 32NK96G7 at checkout, I will send you a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for FREE!  And, you also earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item, too!  Woohoo!

This special promotion will run from 9:00 AM ET on Tuesday, March 14, until 11:30 PM ET on Wednesday, March 15.  Please be sure to complete all of the information so I can contact you about which Wink of Stella Glitter Brush you would like, Clear or Gold.  

Have fun in the snow and check my facebook page @ Creative Blessings with Missy for lots of great samples today!

Blessings,

Missy

Easter in February?

Temps in the high 50's here in PA in Feb?  While not the normal- I'm loving it (not a cold weather gal!)  Warmer temps have me spring cleaning and thinking of spring projects- so when my friend Deb and I got together to create we decided to start on some Easter items.  Starting today and for the next 10 days (or more) we'll be sharing some Easter treats, home decor and more! We have a facebook page together called Creative Duo- have you checked it out?  Stop by there and like our page!
We decided to use the Basket Bunch Bundle from the Occasions Catalog.  Have you seen this set- it is so cute!


We'll start off with treats - we have these great cello bags that we created toppers for....here is my first one- these are simple and quick to create.

Here's a close up of the topper-


These little bunnies are so adorable!

Do you create treats for the holidays?  A little chocolate can make someone's day!

January 2017 Remarkably Creative Blog Tour

Welcome to 2017!  We are so glad you joined us!  This month we are focusing on Valentine's Day and while I love the Valentine Set in the Occasions Catalog I decided to create a Valentine card with another set.  I'm focusing on clean and simple cards this week so here's my card to share with you-


Not a traditional red and white Valentine, but I love the subtle shades of this card.  This card starts with a Smokey Slate Card base, added a layer of Blushing Bride Cardstock that is embossed with the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The adorable t-shirt stamped image is from the Custom Tee Stamp Set and Tie Dyed Stamp Set.  It was die cut using the T-shirt Builders Framlits Dies.  Added Smokey Slate 1/8" Stitched Ribbon to finish the card.

Are you a traditional or non-traditional Valentine person?  

Remember Sale A Bration is going on and you can receive Free product with every $50 purchase!

Questions or want to place an order- contact me!

Blessings, Missy
