This stamp set was one of those love at first site have to have ones. The 2 umbrellas are so stinking cute with those little rubber boots and the flowers. And the set comes with a matching punch so there is no fussy cutting! Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by today!

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is that we get to see the new catalog a little early. We also get to pre-order some products from the new catty. It always feels like Christmas to open that box and see all the new stamps, dies, punches, accessories and so much more.

Here is a card I made with the new Birds and Branches set that comes as a bundle with coordinating dies. Isn't that so cute?

Do you struggle with masculine cards? The Clubhouse stamp set from Stampin' Up! is the answer to that problem! Together with the coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper this bundle is so much fun! And pssst..... it's not just for guys but for all your golfing friends! LOL

For this card I cut out a window on the front so you can see through it and covered it with a window sheet on which I glued my golf ball, tee and grass. 

I glued another golf ball, tee and grass as well as a frame on the window from inside of the card to give it a finished look from the that side as well. Once you open the card all those mini golf balls become visible. 

I was on a roll with that set once I started creating so there is more to come. Stay tuned. Thanks for checking in today!

Global Design Project #240

This weeks Global Design Project #240 challenge was CASE (= Copy And Selectively Edit) the designer. Kerstin Kreis who is a super talented Stampin' Up! demo from Germany presented the inspiration.

I got creative with all my dies and punches. Did you know that the leaf die from the "Poppy Moments" makes a perfect unicorn? And the leaf and daisy punches makes great ears? I love to think outside the box and use my tools in new and unexpected ways.

Happy crafting,

Have Another Quaran-tini

A WHAT? A Quaran-tini? According to the sentiment this is like a martini  but you drink it at home. Just another one of the great digital stamps from the "Share Sunshine" set. This one challenged me to use some Petal Pink. I don't think I have used the card stock or ink pad yet. Shame on me, it looks really beautiful in combination with the Olive Green.

And here is another card I made with the digital stamp set "Share Sunshine". Kept it very simple. It makes me smile every time I look at the little guy. LOL

Global Design Project #GDP238

The Global Design Challenge #GDP238 had a sketch challenge for us this week with an ombre background.

I really struggled with this one. But then Stampin' Up! released the Covid19 Give Back digital stamp set "Share Sunshine" this week and I was on a roll. 

Share Sunshine is a digital stamp set is packed with 15 pages both lighthearted and thoughtful sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we are currently in. As part of Stampin’ Up!’s Making a Difference program, 100% of the Share Sunshine PDF Download proceeds will go to COVID-19 efforts through these organizations. Download yours here now and start creating! It is available in English, German, French and Dutch.

Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards! I am having so much fun with this stamp set, the ideas just keep coming.

Thanks for stopping by today and stay healthy,
