Pop of Pink

Garden in bloom, pop of pink, Stampin' Up!, #gardeninbloom, #popofpink, Yes, I am again showcasing a Year End Closeout Sale item.  The Pop of Pink Specialty designer series paper is the featured item today.  I don't know about you but, a favorite "go-to" color combination for me is always pink and black.  The pink today is Melon Mambo.  It's certainly a "Pop of Pink".  (that's a little play on words I guess). 

The stamp set I used the Garden in Bloom and the greeting comes right from the stamp set.  Pretty easy.

So, if you are looking for easy card layouts or ideas, these 2 are just that.  They are really made simple because of the Pop of Pink designer series paper.  Be sure and check out all of the papers on sale here.

Jolly Friends

Jolly Friends, Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Stitched with Cheer, Christmas, #jollyfrends, #stitchedwithcheer, #christmascard, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #bunchofbanners, #handstampedcard, #rubberstampingI had so much fun this weekend with customers making Christmas gifts.  I loved the chatter, the Christmas music and seeing the frames and banners that went home in loving hands.  Plus we got a little snow and it was fun so introduce our grandson to snowmen and sledding. 

JohnI couldn't help but smile as I was cleaning up from class and reflecting on the fun times this weekend.  While cleaning up, I realized that I didn't have an idea planned for my blog post today so, I took some of the scraps and stamp set from one of the frames and made this Jolly Friends card for you.

Jolly Friends, Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Stitched with Cheer, Christmas, #jollyfrends, #stitchedwithcheer, #christmascard, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #stampinbj.com, #bunchofbanners, #handstampedcard, #rubberstampingI was sad to see the Jolly Friends bundle on the retiring list.  I love this moose and frankly the bundle!  I'm sure something good will replace it.  (but, Christmoose - really?)  well, at any rate, enjoy this card from the scraps and leftovers on my table.   Smile, listen to Christmas music and the laughter of children enjoying the snow and the season will be "Merry & Bright"

Don't forget about the Year End Closeout - Great deals to be had including this bundle at 30% off!

Merry Medley on Sale

Merry Medley, Tin of Tags, Holly Berry Builder Punch, #merrymedley, #hollyberrybuilderpunch, #tinoftags, #christmascard, #rubberstamping, #stampinbj.com, #yearendcloseout, #stampinupsaleI'm continuing on to showcase items from the Year End Closeout.  Today I am featuring the Merry Medley stamp - a single background stamp.  I frankly intended to cut this stamp apart for the greetings and never got around to it.  LOL. 

For this card I have used a chalkboard technique by stamping in the White Craft ink pad on Basic Black cardstock.  As if there wasn't enough greetings, I added one from the Tin of Tags (again) stamped on the Stitched Shapes Framelit.  I further highlighted the stitching with the Emerald Envy Stampin' Write marker. 

Merry Medley, Tin of Tags, Holly Berry Builder Punch, #merrymedley, #hollyberrybuilderpunch, #tinoftags, #christmascard, #rubberstamping, #stampinbj.com, #yearendcloseout, #stampinupsale, #christmaspines, #prettypinesHere's another look with Smoky Slate.   The accent is from the Christmas Pines bundle with the Pretty Pines thinlits.   I will share that the Christmas Pines stamp set and the Pretty Pines thinlits will be staying around - BUT, you will only be able to purchase them as a bundle for the savings until January 3. 

Check out all of the stamp sets on sale below!  Details of the Year End Closeout special can be found here.

Reason for the Season

Reason for the season, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, Christmas Card, #reasonfortheseason, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #staminbj.com, #christmascard, #flourishthinlitsThe "Reason for the Season" stamp set was one of my favorites from last year.  And yes, it is in the regular catalog.  I know that I forget about the Christmas Holiday section in the big catalog primarily because the Holiday catalog is so freakin' amazing.  So, I pulled out this beauty and am showcasing it in my post today. 

Reason for the season, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, Christmas Card, #reasonfortheseason, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #staminbj.com, #christmascard, #flourishthinlitsI used the Pop of Pink Specialty designer series paper for the black patterned paper background.  Then I added the Garden Green flourish thinlit to complement the poinsettia focal point which is done in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green.  I added the Gold wink of stella to the middle of the flower.  

Reason for the season, Stampin' up!, BJ Peters, Christmas Card, #reasonfortheseason, #stampinup, #bjpeters, #staminbj.com, #christmascard, #flourishthinlitsThis stamp set also has a coordinating punch - the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  You can create your own poinsettia with the stamp set and punch combination.  This one is a beauty.
