Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights - January 2018

Hello Friends!! I am again participating on Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights!! and this month's theme is to create with products from Sale-A-Bration or the new Occasions catalog!! so I am pretty sure you will want to check everyone participating on this Highlights as we all will be featuring samples using new products!!! how exciting!! 

With the theme in mind I decided to do a card featuring the Petal Passion suite, using the Petal Palette Bundle as well as the Petal Passion designer series paper (DSP), as I feel this collection has a lot of possibilities!!! the stamp set has a great variety of sentiments perfect for lots of occasions! and the images on the stamp set are just really cute, see image below!!

So here is the card I created with this stamp set!! now did you see the coordinating designer series paper (DSP)??? well this suite has a great DSP which colors are black and white, so I went ahead and colored all white areas (leaves) in old olive using my stampin' blends markers!! yes!! you can color the DSP with your blends and get the perfect DSP that will coordinate with your project!! is that not awesome?? 

I love that from Stampin' Up! products, all products color coordinate perfectly, so in this case I just need to color the DSP with the same blend as with the cardstock and voila, instant coordination!! that is the best feature on our products, you get everything to color coordinate beautifully.. don't you agree?

I colored the roses as well using the blends, in this case I use the daffodil delight as well as the calypso coral blends, so that I could get a nice shade in the roses.. and to finish it up, I added Wink of Stella, cause why wouldn't you?? really, wink of stella add the perfect touch to every project by adding a little bit of shimmer to your projects.. just perfect!

So here is the video tutorial, where I show you how to make this beautiful card, you will see this is so easy to make.. hope you enjoy watching it!

Facebook live Jan 11- Painted with love samples

Hello Friends!!! Here I am sharing the cards that we made during my last Facebook live!! I host a facebook live every Thursday at 7PM CST on my facebook page HERE, you can like or follow my page and also click to get notifications so you know when I go live!!! 

As you all know Sale-A-Bration is still on going, this is truly the best time of the year as we all get FREE products from Stampin UP!!!

So my first card uses one of the FREE stamp sets that you get when you purchase $50, it is Party Pandas!! I truly love these pandas and has been by far one of my favorite sets from Sale-A-Bration this year!! I cant get tired of using these cute guys!!

Even though I use the basic black Archival ink pad, I did add some shadowing on the little panda.. It is ok as I am not really blending or coloring on top of it, if you do some blending, it is always best to use the memento ink pad!

The second card is a super easy card, this is what I made using the FMS #319, which is a weekly sketch that is posted for everyone to get inspiration and create.. I am having so much fun using the sketches when I am designing, I feel like these truly help my creative juices.. 

The third card  is as well super easy to make.. I feel like using the sentiment from the ribbon of courage is perfect, as you can use it for valentine's day, you can use it for friends and family or for encouragement!! don't you think?

The final card is as well very easy to make!!! I paired the sunshine wishes thinlits, which is the set I use to die cut the word "Love",  with the lovely inside and out stamp set for the sentiment!!, the hearts are both die cut with the lots to love box framelits, again this is perfect for any occasion, not just valentine's day.. 

You can see the full video of the facebook live event!! and you can see more details on how to make all of these cards.. 

By the way these are the cards from the card kit that I will be sending at the end of January to everyone that places and online order using the hostess code of the month! for January, the hostess code is 9NJERZVY 

you can place an online order HERE

you can click on any of the images below, these will take you to my online store where you can purchase any of the products to recreate these cards!! 

Thanks for stopping by and for your continuous support!

Stamp ink Paper Challenge #132 - Fun Cake - Birthday card

Hello Friends!! so here I am again participating in the SIP challenge of the week!! this week the theme was fun Cake! so when I read the challenge I immediately thought of using the sweet soiree suite!! which is the one that has a cake in it!! I mean it was just perfect.. I just got this set and I have been wanting to play with it, but since my focus has been valentines I have not had time to play with this!! so I love that this challenge is giving me the perfect excuse to play with this suite!! 

So here is my sample!! I use the designer series paper (DSP) on this suite, it is the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP, and what is cool about this paper pack is that each sheet has silver foil, it looks gorgeous!! and on all projects this will have a WOW effect!!
Did you see the cake stand??? This was die cut with the coordinating framelits! and you guess it, when you get both the stamp set and the coordinating framelits on a bundle, you save 10% on both items!!! 

I colored the flowers on the cake using the blends markers!! I love these alcohol markers!! and then I added Wink of Stella on the flowers, this adds a lot to the card!! on the below picture you can see more details on the flowers!!  you definitely need to get all the colors of these markers!!! 
The best way to get all of these markers is by purchasing the starter kit!! no kidding (keep reading).. the full collection of blends cost $121.5 plus shipping (10%) plus tax so total is about $144 (depending on your state tax), but if you purchase the starter kit, you actually get $125 worth of products for only $99 plus tax, there is NO Shipping fees on the starter kit, so about $107 (again depending on your state taxes), and during Sale-A-Bration which is going on right now, you get TWO stamp sets of your choice from the annual or occasions catalog for FREE. And the best thing is that you get to enjoy at least 20% discount in any of your future orders, plus you get to be part of my team :)  

you can see more samples being made with the challenge of the week HERE 

And here is the video tutorial where I show you how to make this beautiful card, hope you enjoy watching this video.

Don't forget that Sale-A-Bration is still going on, so for every $50 you spend on Stampin' Up! products on my store you get a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure!!! don't miss out on this great promotion!! this is truly the best time of the year!!!

Freshly Made Sketches # 319 - Valentine cards

Hello Friends!! here is another card using a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (FMS), I have been enjoying lately using these sketches and challenges to get inspiration for the cards I create.. 

What I like about FMS is that their sketches are very clean and prompt you to make a quick and easy card, don't you think? here is the sketch from this week.. 

I decided to use the painted with love suite and showcase the gorgeous designer series paper (DSP), all the sheets on this DSP pack has gold foil!! so I promise you, all your projects will look spectacular when using this DSP!! 

I added a little heart that I had die cut in gold glimmer paper, this heart is from the sure do love you bundle.. and the sentiment is from the petal palette stamp set!!

Valentine's card but this time with Party Pandas!!!

Hello Friends!! here is a quick and easy card using the Sure Do Love You stamp set from the brand NEW Occasions catalog!! but this time I incorporated an image from the Party Pandas stamp set.. 

Remember that you can get the Party Pandas stamp set FREE when you order $50 on Stampin' Up! products as this set is part of Sale-A-Bration!! this set is super cute!! those pandas are adorable and  I am sure these will be used in so many projects!! 

Note that I used the light smoky slate blends to give some depth to the little panda, I also colored the heart on the letter with the blends and added wink of stella because why wouldn't you? this adds a little bit of shimmer to the heart!, I also colored its cheeks with light pink pirouette blends.  


And here is the video tutorial where I show you how to make this card, I hope you enjoy the video.. :)

PCC274 for Thank you notes

Hello Friends!! Today I am sharing another card using online challenges, I am having a lot of fun creating with the sketches provided, they truly help getting the creative juices going.. 

This is the first time I participate on the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.. and so here is the sketch they provided for this week!

And here is the card I created using this Sketch.. I just recently got the Label Me Pretty Bundle and I have been itching to use it for my thank you notes.. I felt this challenge would go perfect with it, don't you think??  I paired it with the Falling Flowers stamp set and added a bow made with the brand new organza ribbon (out of the Occasions catalog) and just to add a nice bling touch I added a few rhinestones.. 

You can see more of the details on the below picture, I love that this is a quick and easy card, and therefore you can do a lot of them pretty fast as well as you can pretty much do a lot of colors for this card, I am picturing Berry Burst, or Lemon Lime Twist, or even Powder Pink, any color would go great with this card!!!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate in contacting me, I will be more than happy to help you, also if you like the card, drop me a comment.

You can see all other cards made with this sketch HERE

Though this card is extremely easy, I did a video tutorial for you to see how easy this card was to put together.
