Lovely Wishes!

Today I'm sharing my December TEAM cards made with the new set Lovely Wishes from the Occasions catalog.  If you don't have your new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog - let me know and I'll get one right out to you.   I was fortunate to get this set at our last Onstage Convention event in November - and I simply love it.   I'm a bit of a leaf, curves and flower gal - and this set fits the bill in all those categories - plus it has some delightful sentiments.
Here's the card close up - I just two step stamped the flowers and leaves - then added a couple little hearts to carry the design around the sentiment.  As you can see all my layers are offset to the left - just to give the card a bit of character.
Finally - and I know it's hard to see - I added three of the little glitter and clear epoxy shapes from the Occasions catty - they are just adorable  - round and raindrop shapes - 1/2 clear and 1/2 with glitter - they just reminded me of little dewdrops!
Congrats to my TEAM on all their great accomplishments - they are an amazing group of women!  If you'd like to join my TEAM of Crazy Stamping Ladies - you can see what it's all about HERE plus, right now during Sale-A-Bration you can get two additional sets of your choice in your starter kit!!!  Planning to order - please go to my website HERE choose SHOP NOW and be sure to enter the hostess code below before finalizing you order.

TEAM gifts from Heidi....

I don't think I ever shared these simply adorable gifts my daughter Heidi made for the members of our TEAM attending OnStage in November.  They are Trader Joe's coffee and tea chocolate bars - that come in really fun packaging to start.  Of course mine was a coffee one - 
But then with some simple stamping and cutting - she decorated them just delightfully!  I am a clean and simple girl - and these to me are just sooooo cute!  A rainbow of treats!
She used the Coffee Cafe set on page 31 of our annual catalog - and some beautiful cardstock colors to compliment the candy wrappers.
Hope you find a way to pretty up a gift for someone -  you just might make their day! ~Maureen

BRING on the FUN!!!!

Today I decided to play with a brand new suite of products from the Occasions catalog - Picture Perfect Party!   It is big and fun and bursting with color - the basics are - the Picture Perfect Birthday Set -
Picture Perfect Birthday 145519  $17.00
And this amazing Picture Perfect Party DSP - it is unique in that one side has graphically designed imagery; while the other side features photographic imagery.  So wonderfully vivid!
Picture Perfect Party DSP 145559 $10.00
So here's my first card with this set - I've included a inspiration sheet in the Free Inspiration Sheet Library at the top of the page, with all the details!
But I do want to share one really new cool product I used on here - the Tutti Frutti Adhesive backed sequins.  These are AWESOME!!!   No more glue spilling over - these are self-adhesive and so much fun!!!

Inside is one of the many sentiments in this set with a sprinkle of confetti!
Here is another angle - just look at the detail on that photo-DSP - looks like those confetti circles are popping off the page!
So....Who is ready for a PARTY!?!  See you soon.  ~Maureen

SAB 2018 Beautiful Peacock Cards and FREE inspiration sheet

Hi all - so thankful that I have been able to do some stamping today.  That may be all I get accomplished, but that is fine - I have not stamped in weeks.  Believe me - these are sweet and simple - but wow - today they were work :)  I'm still wiped out.  I chose this set to focus on today as I wanted to have something bring a smile to my face and  yours and this did it for me.  Here's the set you can get FREE with a $50 purchase. 
Beautiful Peacock SAB 2018 - 147239
So I started by just picking a color palette to work with - in this case Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide.  I stamped the Peacock three times using the same colors, but varying where the color placement was.   Then cut three coordinating colored layers to go under them.  Finally I stamped three identical card bases and three envelopes.
Each card is made the same way - card base, colored layer adhered with snail to base, stamped layer adhered with snail to colored layer and three gems added to the flowers on the tail.
I just love how they turned out - and they did bring a smile to my face.  Especially every time I stamped one of those itty bitty yellow flowers - they are soooooo cute.  They remind me of flowers I doodle in the 1970's days of Flower Power - lol.  They are just so sweet and tiny!
So - that's them and here they are together -
And I'm started a new page on my BLOG -  you can see it at the top FREE Inspiration Sheet Library.  I've added instructions on today's card that you are free to use, copy, print, etc.   As the year goes on I will add more instructions to the page on other projects.  Enjoy!  Let me know if you have any questions!  See you soon.  ~Maureen
