Broadway Bound

Happy Blog Hop! Welcome to another month and thanks for hopping along (you can find all the links to the other great projects below). This month we're focusing on new products... boy, oh BOY are there a lot of awesome goodies in the 2018/2019 Annual Catalogue! If you need a copy & don't have a demonstrator, give me a shout if you want your hands on a hard copy!

Anywho, moving on to the projects... I created a couple of projects using the new Broadway Bound Suite. Perhaps it caught your eye right away, or maybe when you heard of the Paper Pumpkin coordinating kit this month (I just received it today and it's AMAZING!). Maybe you haven't seen it yet... but I bet you're gonna love it! ;)


This suite of products is both fun and colourful. I love all the possibilities. For this first card, I kept a fairly neutral colour palette with a pop of Lemon Lime Twist. The Designer Series Paper in this suite is filled with gold foil accents. Did you know that when you brayer colour over top of it, it resists the ink? Cool, eh?!


I happened to have some shimmery black paper in my stash, but you can get a similar look with Wink of Stella. To accent the gold in the paper, I added slivers of Gold Foil behind the die cut marquee image and Gold Mini Sequin Trim & Cord as the balloon strings. I also heat embossed the gold dots on the "hooray" text.


For this second card, I used the same suite of products and got a totally different look! The only cutting I did here was the fussy cutting of the candles from the paper. I used the new Embossing Mat for the Big Shot and used the "wish" die to emboss with instead of cut out. Super cool!! Definitely takes your dies much further! I used a white gel pen to highlight the "lights".

I can't wait to play around with this suite some more... but for now, hop along to the other awesome ladies to see what they've created!

Birthday Memories

Hello! Welcome back to another Blog Hop with the Stamping Symphony team. So glad you decided to pop in! Today we are again sharing with you some retiring product... there's not much time left (and not much left) from that long list of retiring goodies. If you've waited this long though, some items have gone on sale! Be sure to pop by my online store (www.hofkissed.stampinup.net) to check it all out before May 31st!

So on to the projects I'm showcasing today - the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set & Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper. I loved this set when it first appeared and still love it so much that I think it'll stay with me for a little while longer. ;)

Anyway, these were the cards we made last week in my "Mommy & Me" class. It was for women & children to celebrate Mother's Day. Each made these three cards and we had lots of fun. Check them out:


I did a lot of extra prep because it was a big group and I had children attending. These would normally not be cards they'd make in my Kids Club classes, but wanted them to be special, so we did a few fun things. This first one eased them in, with very little stamping.


This next one was a definite favourite of the night. It had a fun popped-up element and then an unexpected surprise on how it opened. Everyone loved the bright colours.



Lastly, who wouldn't want a card with cupcakes and a poodle?!


I punched a couple of half circles in my card base using my 1/2" Circle Punch, 3/4" of the way up from the bottom. This allowed the ribbon to tie nicely and I really loved how it turned out. Will definitely do that again.


I really loved all the bright colours from this suite of products and the Designer Series Paper isjust spectacular!! It was one of the items that went on sale and I HIGHLY recommend you order some. You won't regret it! ;)
