Accented Blooms and Springtime Impressions

WOW! Live video is a funny thing! Unless you're the one making the video! Luckily, the 3rd time was the charm and technology worked in our favor today. LOL!

If you weren't able to join us for this week's Facebook Live, be sure to mark it on your calendar for next Saturday at 4PM central time. It is always entertaining if nothing else! I share it onto my Red Hot Stampers page for anyone that wants to watch anonymously, but it's definitely more fun in the Red Hot Stampers group with the interactive commenting! (Always a party!)

Here are the three cards we made, starting with a quick and simple thank you card in our new GORGEOUS Grape:

The second was a more detailed card, but still quite simple to make:

And the THIRD card was our WOW card for the week! Everyone loves an interactive card! This one is hard to put down! Watch the video to see how fun the inside is!

If you would like the PDF supplies list and measurements for these cards you can find that for free right here.

You can also receive all the supplies to make these cards (minus the stamped images!) by placing an order here ($30 minimum before shipping & tax) using this hostess code at checkout: AZQJPUYJ

If you are already a demonstrator and want to order your supplies with your discount but would still love to get the make and take packets, send me a FB message or email and I will send you the packet for $10 (which includes postage).

Thanks again for stopping by!

I hope you loved the cards and those gorgeous Accented Blooms stamp set and Springtime Impressions dies! They were made for each other!

Craft Room Organization Part 1: Small Space Storage

I love a good organized craft room, but it's hard to keep it clean and organized! In this video I'll show you some great organizing products to help you get your space organized! Keeping it that way is up to you. 😉

This is just a corner of the playroom, showing you don't need a large space or an entire room! Organization can come with a desk, drawers and a shelf! Add a couple pretty dollar store bins or Target finds and you'll have a stunning space!

Stay tuned for Part 2 of my craft room storage tips! I'm moving out of the corner and into the downstairs office!

Retiring In-Colors Blog Hop

Welcome to our Sweet Stampede Team Blog Hop! This month we are featuring the retiring in-colors!

I have to admit I didn't love these colors at first, but now I'm heartbroken to lose Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy! I AM ecstatic that Flirty Flamingo will be sticking around permanently! What about you? Which one are you MOST sad to see go? And are you loving the fact that Flirty Flamingo will be added to our permanent color collections?? Let us know in the comments below!

I made this card for our monthly team swap that had a "spring" theme and inadvertently used 3 of the 5 colors! I guess that means I LOVE them and they feel springy to me!

My original idea ended up as a major failure (see below), but I finally came up with the idea to use the Brushstrokes Background Stamp (which is *gasp* RETIRING!) on watercolor paper. I just masked off the area under the umbrella with a post-it note before stamping. You may want to use a couple post-it notes because all that water could soak through the mask.

I stamped the umbrella handle and heart "raindrops" in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and embossed the clouds and Love sentiment in gold (sooo gorgeous!) I then die cut the umbrella out of gold shimmer paper and popped it up with dimensionals. I love those gold accents to really brighten it up! 

I also love how you can play with different colors on the background. I just used 4-5 different ink pads and inked up the background stamp, spritzed the watercolor paper, AND the inked up stamp, then stamped! It's beautiful and unpredictable which gives you a unique card every time!

I added the masterpiece to a Sweet Sugarplum cardstock base and voilà! 
(And yes, that's pronounced with a V) ;) It's ok, we all make mistakes. Here's mine:

It's all about trial and error baby!

Don't forget that the Brushstrokes Background, the Weather Together stamp set & dies and those gorgeous in-colors are ALL retiring (so sad!) so order yours before they're gone forever! Use hostess code Y4EGCDS9 at checkout and I will send you a free gift!
