Ballon Bash

Hi everybody!! Super quick post because I am using my phone's hot spy this morning. My "precious" hubby cut through the internet cable out in the yard this weekend on accident.... GRRR!!

I wanted to share a sweet card I made with the Balloon Bash stamp set. 

A little watercolor, a little silver embossing powder and a little sponge daubers all combined to make a sweet, whimsical card! 

I'll be back tomorrow! I'll be checking my email via my phone, so be patient with me if you contact me!! :-)  Have a great Monday!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop- Guy Greetings


 
Hello and welcome to the March Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our theme this month is Make It Masculine. I definitely don't do enough of this, so it was a really fun challenge for me.

I used Guy Greetings for this card. And I kind of left it open ended. World's Greatest... could be Dad, could be brother, could be husband? Anything really. I stamped him on Kraft CS and fussy cut him out. I adhered him on a Whisper White Oval with Dimensionals. The banners are from Adventure Bound DSP stack and Champagne Glimmer Paper. The dots in the background were done with a sponge dauber. 


Isn't he handsome? ;-) 

Ok, you are off to my friend Jane Lee. So glad she is back! Thanks for stopping by!

Playful Pennants


Good morning! Recently, I found these little bags of chocolate balls at Walmart. They were mixed bags of footballs, basketballs, soccer balls and baseballs. I bought a bunch of them because I think they make great team gifts (I am going to sell them at a craft sale coming up.)

I made simple bag toppers for each sport. The soccer bag topper was made with the Honeycomb Thinlit. They measure 3" across and 4" tall (folded in half.) I added little team pennants from the Playful Pennants stamp set. 


For the others, I just used DSP from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack. Perfect, right?

The wood dowels are just kitchen skewers snipped to about 2". 



Ok, that's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!

Spring Fling Event

This weekend was my Spring Fling event. Along with four of my downline, we hosted a Stamp Camp of sorts. We did six projects, all focusing on the spring products in the Occasions Catalog. It was so much fun and we had a wonderful turnout. 

I'll give you a little tour around the room at each station. We each did a display showing other examples of the products we were demoing.

This was Eydie's station. I loved the little shelf she set up with all her pretty samples! 

And this is her project.

Next up is Tammie. She had designed a beautiful card using Blendabilities. Unfortunately, they were discontinued between the time she designed it and the time we had our event. So, she quickly changed it up to use the Aqua Painters. Way to be flexible Tammie! :-) And the result was just as beautiful! And don't you just love her vintage looking display!?





Jackie is a wiz at using the White Ink. I adore the card she came up with using the chalkboard look.





 The fourth station was created by Tammy and she focused on the Spiral Flower Die. Her project was so adorable and is so her!! She loves to do 3D projects.

This looks bigger that it really is. She used the tiny treat boxes. 


Her display was beautiful as well. So many ways to use this die! 





She even made a pin to wear! 

Lastly are my two stations. We made a card featuring Painted Petals (thank you Mary Fish! :-)) and a basket featuring Petal Potpourri and the Berry Basket Bigz Die. 

  





We met n a church hall that was really perfect for this event. We had quite a full house. Thank you to everyone who joined us on Saturday! We are grateful to have the opportunity to share what we love with all of you! :-)







I would like to say again that my downline is amazing. I felt like a proud Momma watching my friends do what they do best! It really came naturally to them to teach and share with our customers. It was one of my most favorite events ever!

My team has grown by leaps and bounds this year.  We are made of of life long friends, new friends, coworkers, neighbors and so on. We come from every walk of life. Some live here in the San Antonio area, some are across the country. We even have a new member in Japan!! 

We would love to welcome any of you who are interested in joining, either local or long distance. We plan to continue to do these kinds of events and use this experience to teach and learn from each other. We have a Facebook group and a blog where we bounce ideas off each other and chat about company happenings among other things. If you are interested in joining the Sweet Stampede, click on the JOIN link at the top of the page or email me to chat! 


 Thanks for stopping by today! Have a GREAT Monday!
