Marcelyn Monday and Use Your Stuff Challenge

Before we get to Marcelyn Monday, I have an entry for my Design Team for Use Your Stuff Challenge.

The challenge is Twinkle, Twinkle- Use something sparkly on your project.  Well if you want sparkle, the Painted with Love Suite in the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog is for you.  I used the sparkly Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP), sparkly Gold Glitter Flakes for inside the “shaker” card and sparkly Love Mini Tinsel Trim!  Hope you make a sparkly project and enter our challenge here.

Marcelyn Churchill is my friend, stamping team member, fellow BSFer (Bible Study Fellowship) and prolific crafter.  She doesn’t have a blog, so I share some of her creations on most Mondays.

I love this card Marcelyn made this week.  Yes, she did have to put the “puzzle pieces” together to fill all the Cherry Cobbler pieces into the Rose Garden framelit.

There are so many different ways to make gorgeous cards with the Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.   Above you can see heat embossing on Vellum Cardstock and then coloring with markers.

The star of this card is the framelit pieces with the images behind painted with reinkers and an Aqua Painter.

Can you see they inked up the stamp with Crumb Cake and then used the Calypso Coral and Old Olive markers to color a few flowers and leaves.  I love having the markers to go with all the Stampin’ Up ink pads.

If you would like to know how to make this or anything else shown here today, please email Marcelyn at marcelynchurchill@msn.com  Marcelyn loves receiving your emails.  Please stop by next week to see more of her creations.

I just sent Abby on her way back to college.  We had a wonderful birthday weekend celebrating her 19th birthday.  Her brothers were huge fans of her choice to go to Latin King for dinner yesterday before church.  We also got to have brunch with my parents this morning.  If only Sean had been home, I would’ve had a “full nest.”  This is the first time she is driving herself back to college.  She came back in the house after I thought she had left, I was so happy to be able to hug my sweet daughter one more time!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Animals

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for February 2018. This month our theme is  Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Cards Featuring Animals!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Beth McCullough @  StampingMom or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Stampin Up Baby Bear Eclipse baby card designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

So when I saw “Bear” in the blog hop challenge, I knew I was in.  I love teddy bears and used to collect them.  In fact, our oldest son, Sean, is named after my favorite teddy bear, Seanie Bear.  OK, so it seems weird to me to name a child after a teddy bear, but at the time it made perfect sense. 🙂  Even though I don’t collect them anymore, when Stampin’ Up! came out with Baby Bear I bought it immediately.  I got the idea for this card from my friend and fellow demo, Barb Kingsley.  Here’s her card I received in a swap in January.

Barb used the new bunny set in the Occasions catalog, Sweet Little Something.  Don’t you love the Eclipse technique?!

I used the line of hearts stamp from Heart Happiness to decorate the envelope and inside the card.  I try to always decorate the envelope so the recipient knows its “happy mail!” Since I love everyone I send a card to, I might just put hearts on all my envelopes this year. 🙂

Waterfront Stamp Set by Stampin Up

Welcome to the Pals Feburary 2018 Blog Hop. Our theme this month is “Case the Catty”. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will copy or remake projects from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs and brochures. After all, who doesn’t CASE (Copy and Share Everything) once in a while. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I love the new Waterfront stamp set!  It makes it easy to feel like a watercolor artist.

The Stampin’ Up! catalog is an awesome Idea Book.  Sometimes I copy a card exactly and sometimes I like to switch things up.

In the catalog, they didn’t use the Crushed Curry layer, but I thought it helped the card pop.  I also changed the sentiment because I really like, “Every Little Kindness Makes The World Brighter.”

I made this one with a Pacific Point layer.  Which one do you like better?
