Every Friday I do a Facebook Live on my business Facebook Page. Today was no exception and I chose to Showcase the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set and coordinating Rain Boots Dies.
Both of the these are on the Last Chance Product list till the end of June 2022. I had a bit of a search online to see what others had created and took inspiration from a few projects and came up with these 4 cards. The current 2022-2024 In Colors are really my favourite inks to use right now and I chose to use them in these projects with the Flowering Rain Boots stamps.
I created 4 cards and have stepped up each card as I went. Simple cards are a favourite because it means you can create them at home with minimal supplies. My first and second cards are very simple. The last two cards have used the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut out elements and to emboss the background.
I have created two videos this week. The first one is my Friday Facebook Live where I chat through what I am creating. The second video is a short sped up version of the video. I recorded the short one simultaneously via my phone so I could edit it quickly.
Welcome to another Friday Facebook Live and the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp set & the ice Cream Cone Builder punch are on display. Today I’m sharing more products that are on the Last Chance Products List that are retiring on the 2nd May, 2022. Two products are 50% off so you will want to order them quick before they are gone.You can order from my online store sharonwilson.stampinup.net and click “shop now”
If you have a very long wish list then maybe consider joining my team and purchasing the starter kit for only $169. If you purchase the starter kit this month you can also get your hands one some brand new products before anyone else as we have just entered pre-order for the new Annual Catalogue that starts on the 3rd May.
With the cards below your imagination is really only your limit as you can mix and match an colour to create these ice creams from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set. Lots of fussy cutting in a couple of these cards.
On my Facebook Live recently I shared a few products that are retiring very soon including the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set which is heavily discounted at 50% off from $40 down to $20.
This Tasteful Touches stamp set is gorgeous and I will really miss it once it retires. You can see the cards I made in my youtube video below. I’d love for you to follow my You tube channel so you can see all the projects I’ve created and get notified when I upload new videos.
Welcome to our February Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #39. Have you joined me from Niki’s blog or are you starting right here? Either way, welcome. There are 9 of us hopping along this month so you’re in for a real treat.
This months Blog Hop is a layout challenge. This challenge was a lovely one to participate in. I was able to create two cards this month and I rotated one of the cards.
I chose to use the tulip paper and coordinating stamp set from the January to June Mini Catalogue. The cards aren’t square but I hope that I have fulfilled the challenge. Layering the DSP onto a colour other that white really brings out the colours in the Designer Series Paper. Isn’t the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper just beautiful? Leaving the DSP to shine was a great choice with just a small amount of stamping.

In todays post, Blending Brushes meets Paradise Palms. I love these cards and the quick and easy way they are created. These cards are using the blending brushes. One of the cards also uses a masking technique which gives a definite panel which is coloured. The other card is free hand but I love them both.
On each card I have used the same colours, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral & Crumb Cake for the blended backgrounds and then used the Memento Black ink for the palm trees and the sentiment. The original inspiration came from Angie Leach & Stampin’ Fun with Tracy – I couldn’t find her blog but found the image from Pinterest.
I created a couple of other cards as well using different colours and am sharing a video for you to see the other designs as well. As always you will see all the products I have used at the bottom of this email. This stamp set has been fun to play with and you can see some of the other cards I have created here.
The Artfully Layered Bundle jumped out at me as soon as I saw it. I love the greenery in the paper and the dies are just to die for, pardon the pun. This is also my first class for the year which will be held on Thursday 17th February at 10am. You can email me for more details or click on this link.
The Designer Series Paper is so lovely that it does a lot of the work for you when you’re creating your projects. This suite would also go well with the Paradise Palms Bundle

Each Friday I have been doing a facebook friday live and on the 31st December I am showcasing these cards, however I did create some quicker cards on the live. I also upload the video to youtube. I have been enjoying the facebook lives and it has helped me with my creativity. Which version of the cards would you like to re-create? I show these cards above at about the 6 minute mark on the video if you wish to skip ahead.
Sharing today the Paradise Palms card I created using the blending brushes to create a sunset. I started by punching out a circle from a post it note and stuck it onto my card front. Using the blending brushes I added the ink to the front of the card.

And here is a little video for you to see how I have created my card. I have recorded it as a time lapse video so it is a very quick watch for you. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel to get notified of all my latest videos.
