Stampin' Up!'s Dandelion Wishes


I have been having so much fun creating with this Dandelion Wishes stamp set. It is a gorgeous set and when a set is this pretty it's really not that difficult to create beautiful cards! This week I released my current class in the mail, which uses the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. If you missed it you can find all the details here. I love how these projects turned out - they are bright and cheerful - perfect for summer.

I decided to continue creating with this stamp set for today's Facebook Live (link to be posted after it gets downloaded). If you are visiting my blog around 11am MST, be sure to join us live on Facebook to see how these two cards come together.


I chose to use the same basic supplies that are needed to complete the Dandelion Wishes class in the mail which are the stamp set; mango melody and daffodil delight inks, VersaMark and white embossing powder.

For this first card I embossed the dandelions in white and then sponged the centers with Mango Melody ink. The greeting was stamped in mango and then added to a scrap of mango cardstock with a scrap of the polka dot ribbon.


This second one is a note card. I did some sponging to create a faux torn edge and then stamped the little dandelion sprigs. I clustered together some ribbon, gold sequins and held them together with a piece of bakers twine. Such a simple card but I love it.

Here's the recording of the Facebook Live. Be sure to share and comment on the video (sharing and commenting on YouTube counts!) by June 28th to be entered to win a package of 5 handmade cards.



If you place an order of $50 (or more) with me using the host code below between June 22nd and June 28th, I will send you the consumable supplies to create 2 of each of these cards in the mail along with your thank you card.



And don't forget about the Dandelion Wishes class in the mail. You can find all the details here.



Hope you have a creative day!

Animal Outing - Together we make a great pair


That little frog with the eyebrows just makes me smile! I ADORE this animal outing stamp set. It is seriously the cutest. I created this card before I had the dsp and coordinating framelits and love how it came together. It's going to make a great anniversary card for my husband in July.

Short and sweet post for today, I have a crazy busy week coming up. Hope you have a chance to get creative this week!

Inspiration is Everywhere

Do you ever struggle with what colors to put together when you create? Maybe you have the same colors that you go to when you craft and you are looking for a change.


The color revamp has definitely forced me to be a little more creative with my colors and I am loving it. But it can be a challenge to use new colors when you are comfortable with your favorites. So I thought today we'd talk about where we can find inspiration for color combinations.

As you are out and about, make note of the things that draw your attention - it could be the colors that are drawing you in. Here are just a few ideas on where to find inspiration in your everyday...
  • Nature - gardens are blooming with flowers this time of the year, but there's also sunsets and sunrises, the colors you see while hiking
  • Shopping - grocery stores - the produce section especially, home decor and clothing stores
  • Fashion magazines and billboards
  • Architecture and art galleries
These are just a few things that are around us as we go about our lives. But there are lots of other places right under your nose.
  • Pinterest - search color combinations and you'll find lots of inspiration
  • SU! Publications - there are lots of samples in the catalogue, find one that appeals to you and use that color combination
  • Color coach - SU! has provided us with a different color combinations to help us with the combining the new colors with the old colors. You can download a copy of the color coach here. And one for the in colors here.
  • Your demonstrator - we are here to help you with your creativity. If you are having a hard time combining colors just ask and we'll help you come up with a color combination. The card that I shared above is a color combination that I put together - Gorgeous Grape, Lemon Lime Twist and Mossy Meadow.
  • And then there's my favorite way to get inspiration - using the colors that SU! put together to create our patterned papers!


For this card, I pulled the colors right from the Garden Impressions DSP - Shaded Spruce, Soft Seafoam, Calypso Coral and Powder Pink. The great thing about pulling the color from the dsp is that you don't even need to own the dsp to use that color combination.

I shared how these cards come together live on Facebook. Here's the recording if you'd like to watch it.



Have a creative weekend!
