Check out these NEW In Colors!

WOW- here is a sneak peek!  CHECK OUT THIS CUTE CARD!  It is made using the 5 New In Colors, a new stamp set &a  new framelits too! 

I wasn't going to share much about new products yet, as only On Stage demonstrator attendees are the only 'lucky' ones that have been able to pre-order a select few of the new upcoming items.  

But......last week I made projects for my downline (team meeting) so that they could ccome reate projects using some new things that I got.  And I honestly have been swamped & I haven't had time to create anything else for any of my blog posts.  So this is a card that I made for my team meeting!  I loved hearing their chatting about how they liked these colors & which ones were their favorites, etc. 

But I do love these New In Colors!  The more I play with them the more I like them.  I honestly like all of them!  But my 2 favorite ones are the light green & the light pink.   Which ones do you like?

The 5 New In Colors are-
  • Tranquil Tide
  • Powder Pink
  •  Lemon Lime Twist
  • Fresh Fig
  • Berry Burst
I will update this post sometime in the next few days with more about these new things!!  

OH gosh I am just going 100 mph- before work & after work & even burning the midnight oil.  I've been busy creating- cutting & working on projects for my upcoming annual Spring Fling that I am having this coming weekend!  So I promise I'll be posting pictures of cute projects still every day this week- but I won't have time to add any extra information- that will have to wait until I have time to come back & update them.

Gotta run.....
I hope you have a great Thursday!
Happy Stamping!

Yesterday was a fun day with the boys.  We were outside for some in the morning & some in the afternoon too!  We are lovin' this nicer weather!  We even went to town in the afternoon, to Walkers & they got ice cream cones.....yummy!  (And messy too- Trey had chocolate everywhere- but it was cute & he loved it!)

When the boys went home last night I worked on stamping stuff!  And Deke worked late on the farm.

This morning Deke is off early to chore & he is headed to the office.  And then he has a meeting this afternoon.  I'm off this morning to go pick up the boys.  I'll take the twins to pre-school & then spend my day with Trey & Masen.  Tonight when the boys go home I'll be stamping again!! 

I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!!
Happy Stamping!

OH my.....I do love this 'Special Reason' flower stamp set!  I am sad that it is retiring.  I have used it alot!  
 
This is a fun layout that I'm doing at an upcoming class.  I think it turned out super cute!
 I did the rock & roll technique here.  
How did I do that?  
  • I inked the big flower stamp, using the Peek-a-boo Peach ink.  
  • I stamped the flower onto my grid paper.
  • I then rolled the edges of the flower stamp into Peek-a-boo Peach ink.
  • I then stamped the flower onto the Whisper White card stock.
  • I then added some Fine Tip Glue to the center of the flowers- be sure to let the glue dry for approx. 30 minutes or more.
stamp set:  'Special Reason' & 'Suite Sayings'- BOTH RETIRING
card stock:  Pear Pizzazz, Peek-a-boo Peach, Whisper White
designer paper:  2016-2018 In Color DSP (Peek-a-boo Peach)- RETIRING

other:  Fine Tip Glue, 1 1/2" Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Peek-a-boo Peach Ruched Ribbon- RETIRING, Dimesionals, Glue Dots
++++++
Yesterday was a fun day with all of my boys.  We played outside for quite awhile.  The weather was pretty nice, but it was really windy.  When the boys went home last night I burnt the midnight oil stamping!  

Deke is home today to work on the farm all day.  Hopefully he gets the grower power washed!  We are just about ready for baby piggies!  They come next Tuesday & Thursday! 
  
I'm off this morning to go pick up my boys for the day.  Hopefully we can go outside again to play.  I think I just have the 3 Seeley boys today, as Masen's great-grandma is back here from Missouri, so I think she is going to keep him today.  When the boys go home tonight I'll be burning the midnight oil  stamping again!  

Gotta run.....
I hope you have a TERRIFIC Tuesday! 
Happy Stamping!

I had a jam packed weekend FULL of LOTS of STAMPING!!  I enjoyed getting to see everyone & stamping with them.  I loved sharing with everyone!!  It was a truly great weekend!  We had a great time!

Rita & DaraLeah were great hostesses yesterday with yummy treats & they were wonderful helpers!  And BLESS Ruth for being my right hand helper!  She is a true blessing to me each month!

At my classes this past weekend, I took with me & shared some of the cool new projects I've been busy creating with my On Stage New Catalog pre-order things too!!  I think everyone seemed as excited about the new things as I am!  June 1st will be here before we know it!  AND we had lots of discussions too about our how some of our favorite products now are retiring & we are focused on getting them right now, before they are all gone! 

When I got home last night, I worked on oil entering orders & getting things ready to connect with my hostesses to close out our parties!

This morning Deke is up early to chore & head to the office for his weekly board meeting.  I'm off to go pick up my boys for the day & enjoy my time with them!!  I hope the weather is nice enough that we can play outside & get some fresh air!  Tonight when the boys go home I'll be working on stamping stuff!!  I have a few more projects to get created for my upcoming Spring Fling event.  And I have lots of card stock cutting to get done for it too!  And I need to finalize things with my hostesses! 

I hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!
Happy Stamping!

Yesterday was a fun day with my 2 little boys.  They are so sweet.  Trey is a little man & Masen is now talking up a storm.  When the boys went home I was on a mad rush to get everything set up & ready for everyone to come stamp with me!  I had a fun evening stamping with everyone that joined me.   When everyone was gone, I burnt the midnight oil cutting card stock.  
 
Wow- I will be stamping all weekend!!  I have another monthly class here at our home this morning.  Then this afternoon I have lots of my team members coming to stamp with me!  I'll be sharing with them the things I learned & did at On Stage in Minneapolis a couple of weekends ago.  They'll get to see new products!  And I've created several cards for them to make using some of the new products I got from my On Stage pre-order.  I can't wait to see & hear their excitement. 

Tonight I'll be getting everything cleaned up, packed up & ready to go stamping all day again tomorrow.  I'm in Hiawatha tomorrow for my 2 monthly stamp classes there.  Rita & DaraLeah are my hostesses this month!  We have a big group coming.  I am looking forward to our day together!

Gotta run.....
I hope you have a SENSATIONAL Saturday!!
Happy Stamping!

Here is a great guy card!  This is one of the cards everyone stamping with me this weekend for my monthly classes will be making!
 
This is such an awesome embossing folder.  It actually debosses!!  
 
This 'Celebration Duo Embossing folder & this 'Happy Celebrations' stamp set coordinate.  They can be purchased separately or as a bundle!!  These 2 items will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalog in June- but they will not be available as a bundle at that time.
I took 2- 1" squares & cut them in half to make the edge along this card.

I will update this post with supplies sometime soon.

I have had a crazy busy week & a super busy weekend too!

+++++
Yesterday I enjoyed my day with the boys.  We played outside for a couple of hours.  It was a little chillier but almost perfect in my book!  I pulled weeds & worked in the yard, while the boys swag, played in the sand box & road their little gator.  Last night when the boys went home I burnt the midnight oil cutting card stock.

This morning we are up early at 5:00 to mark, sort & load pigs.  Hopefully the semi is on time, so I can be at Manda's to get the boys by 7:30 at the latest.  I'll take the twins to pre-school & spend my day with Trey & Masen.  

Tonight I have several coming to stamp with me at our home!!  I am looking forward to sharing & stamping with all of them!

I hope you have a FABULOUS Friday!!
Happy Stamping!

I TOTALLY LOVE this new stamp set!  This is one that is in the new upcoming catalog that goes live on June 1st to customers & demonstrators can pre-order some things beginning May 2nd.  

But as an On Stage attendee a few weeks ago, this was one of the 'All Attendee Gifts' that Stampin' Up! gave to everyone there.  I was thrilled!!!!!  And I couldn't wait to come home & make a card with it!  You all know that I love piggies! 

So what do you think?  Isn't he just adorable!! 
+++++++
I had a fun day yesterday with the boys.  We enjoyed the beautiful weather (even though a little windy) & were outside alot!  The boys should have been tired.  They ran & played & played some more.  WOO HOO!!  Seems like we've been cooped up inside for way too long!  After the boys went home, I burnt the midnight oil stamping!  I worked on projects for my Spring Fling!  All I can say is they are cute!!!  I made an adorable 12x12 sampler last night.  I will get pictures of it taken & will post them in the next day or so- as I can't wait for you to see it! 
 
This morning I'm up early & headed to Manda's as she has an early meeting before school today.  Deke is off early to chore & head to a meeting & then be in his office at the courthouse.  Tonight when the boys go home I'll be a busy bee cutting card stock!
 
I hope you have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!

See- when it is shut- you can't tell that the DSP strip is on the inside edge of the card.

And if you look closely you can tell that I tore a strip of Dapper Denim & attached to the front flap.  I just thought it was a neat added detail to the look & feel of the card.

Deke worked late last night- but he is done working in the fields now until fall.  Our lagoons are all empty!  Yeah....now he can work on getting piggies moved & buildings washed- as we get new baby piggies in a couple of weeks.

This morning I'm off to go pick up all of my boys for the day!  Tonight when they go home I'll be a busy bee cutting card stock!!

Gotta run....

Our Easter afternoon was spent seeing many of my family.  And then we had a cook out last night with our kids & grandkids, along with a fun Easter Egg hung, bon-fire & a movie!

I am home alone today & I'll be stamping all day & all night!!  I have lots of creating & cutting to get done!  Manda, Steve & their boys & Nathan, Sarah & their boys- are all going to an Iowa Cubs baseball game today since there isn't any school.  The boys are super excited about going!!  I can't wait to hear all the trip when I seen them tomorrow morning. 

Deke is off early to chore & head to the office for his weekly board meeting.  He is hoping that it is dry enough to get back in the field this afternoon & he'll work late tonight.   

I hope you have a MARVELOUS Monday!!
Happy Stamping!

Wow!!  What a cool stamp set this is!  
This is a clean & simple card- but it it is really pretty.
stamp set: 'Easter Message'
card stock:  Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
ink:  Chocolate Chip
other:  Clear Wink of Stella Pen, Dimensionals
I don't know if you can tell that I stamped the palm leaf stamp along the edges of the card front- using Chocolate Chip ink onto the Chocolate Chip card stock.  
Check out the colored cross.  
How did I do it?
  • I stamped it using the Chocolate Chip ink onto a piece of Whisper White card stock.  
  • I took my Clear Wink of Stella Pen, picked up ink off of the top of my inside ink pad lid & lightly colored the cross.  
NOTE:  You have to color carefully, as the Chocolate Chip ink is not permanent & it will bleed/run more if you touch the ink.  I tried to blend it by lightly touching it.
This is how I colored the cross!
AND check out this cross.  It isn't colored in at all- just left plain.

I hope you have a very special Easter day!
Happy Stamping!

Check out this card!  It was one of the make & takes we made at On Stage in Minneapolis last weekend!! 
I have to say that I LOVE this new stamp set!!  Check out the other new products here too- the coordinating punch, coordinating designer paper, ribbon & the new Faceted Gems! 
This is clean & simple card!  But it is super cute!!  I just so LOVE this new Daisy punch & the Gold Faceted Gem in the middle of it!
 Here is what one single daisy punched out looks like (with the Faceted Gem in the middle of it).
Here is what it looks like when you stamp & punch the daisy out 2 times & layer them.
Isn't it just stunning!!
And check out all of these Gold Faceted Gems!  

All I can say is WOW!  I'm excited about theses new products!  And I am super excited to get to share them with you!!

Happy Stamping!
