Happy New Years & Best Wishes To All!

 

Today begins a fresh chapter in our lives. A New Year and hopefully one filled with love, creativity, and a great amount of healing for our country. I am also starting a new chapter of my life by offering online classes. My first class will debut NEXT WEEK so make sure to sign up to receiving email updates so you do not miss that big announcement. I am also going to begin each month off with a hostess code. A hostess code allows me to earn a small amount of Stampin’ Rewards. This does not cost you anything so not to worry. It just allows me to earn a little extra to help cover the cost of paper or embellishments. If your order is over $150 please do not use the hostess code as you will qualify yourself for the Stampin’ Rewards.

JAN 2021 Hostess Code IS: UQZ6PQ7M

Now for today’s project. It is a card that just kind of fell together. A happy accident I guess you can say. I am using the BRAND NEW Fine Art Floral Designer series paper. That along with some Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla card stocks and the Stitched so Sweetly Die set (A Must Have). Lets take a look….

The frame was made from an embossed ( Painted Texture 3D embossing folder) piece of Very Vanilla card stock and is elevated using lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a beautiful raised look.

As you can see above, it does not take much else to give this card it’s beauty. I have simply added a sponged foliage leaves from the “A Touch of ink” FREE Sale A Bration item. This double stamp set will be FREE with a $100 during Sale A Bration which begins January 5th So check back then for the kick off of this amazing 2 month Sale!!!!

Last but not least….ohhhh my goodnesssssss are these little Ladybug Trinkets not the most adorable thing ever? QUICK TIP: they hook perfectly to your project with one mini glue dot so make sure to add those to your order if you don’t already have them. These are going to be available in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog which also kicks off January 5th. If you have not received a copy of the two new catalogs please email me at melaniestamps@yahoo.com with your name and address. I will send one out to you ASAP!

As always thank you for stopping by. I am so excited about the upcoming two months. I will have two class offerings, numerous YouTube videos, along with at least 2 posts a week here on my blog. So if you are not already registered I would be honored to serve you. Simply pop your email into the sidebar of the website here. Thank you so much for your support and Happy 2021 my friends!!!!!!

Simple Midweek Project ~ Heartfelt Blooms


Welcome back to a Clean and Simple (CAS) Wednesday. Today’s project it so simple in yet it looks so difficult to create.

This stamp set is a new style from Stampin’ Up!® that gives all the depth of light and shadows all with one press of the stamp. The girls at this month’s card class HAD to have this set. This Heartfelt Blooms stamp set is FREE with a $50+ (expires March 31st) Here is the full stamps set below.

For the sentiment I used “Thinking of You” also from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set. I used the “Tailored Tag Punch” and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. All the  sentiments from this FREE stamp set fit perfectly in this punch. I also added a few coordinating Tutti Fruiti Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Here is a quick pic of the inside of the card. I just love how beautiful this stamp is and how finished the card feels when I add a little coordinating stamping on the inside.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s midweek post. Check back Friday for a peek of my personal favorite FREE item from this years Sale A Bration Sale. You will not want to miss Friday’s post.
