September Blog Hop - Focus on the Sentiment




 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Sentiment as a focal point.” We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.



Being a person that believes WORDS Matter!   Of course, I feel the sentiment is one of the whole reasons we're sending out and making these cards.  For some people writing or saying how they feel doesn't always come across clear.  The sentiment allows the receiver to know how the person feels or what they're thinking before they read the inside of the card.   Feelings of gratitude sometimes can make me feel awkward and I always feel like I can never verbal express exactly how much I appreciate what someone has done or how they have touched me with their good deed.

Thank you all for coming to see me today!
 

*I used my stamparatus and my VersaMark ink to layer with embossing powder on the thanks in this card.  It doesn't show how it give the card dimension  and shine very well.  I enjoyed playing with my blending brushes on the sunflower.  


More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 13th. Our theme will be Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects when participants showcase fun fold cards or 3D items that will be great for any occasion. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

August Blog Hop-My Happiest Season


 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “My Happiest Season”. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them!

Happy Halloween

 

Our family loves Halloween because its all about the fun, no one is expected to over think about anything on this day. Maybe the adults need to worry about overeating on the candy and treats. Honestly, we just love all the holidays.  Our family has always celebrated even the smallest of them.  For me I enjoy all the decorations and the feel of fall. Who doesn't like the changing of the leaves and cooler air.  smells of marshmallows over a fire.  Everyone gets to be a kid again.  We like thinking that we are the cool house on the block because we look forward to giving out full size candy bars (last year we went through 300 candy bars) and seeing all the different kids in their costumes.  It kicks off the holiday season with a bit of Craziness.  With the last name of Webb, its only right this would be my kind of day! 

I decided to get a head start on decorating our BOO basket this year!  I know by the end of day tomorrow all that candy is going to be gone!

just a small piece of chocolate wrapped with our always beautiful DSP who wouldn't feel special getting a small treat!  I went with the Frightfully Cute Bundle.  I have already used the dies in this collection so many times.   

The new boxes hold way more than you may think.



(mine held 6 nuggets and 3 Lindt chocolate truffles.)




Look forward to sharing with you next month!

New 2021-2023 In Colors - Blog Hop



 Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “2021-2023 New In-Colors.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Then, at the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.





Here is the truth, I rarely ever buy the new In Colors.  But this year I ended up buy all the new stamp pad, reinkers, and matching cardstock.  Mostly because I love this DSP. It really shows off how just changing up the cardstock brings out all the new In colors.  Using the One Sheet Wonder method with the Pansy Petals 12 X 12 DSP, matching jewels, a little ribbon and Basic White Cardstock.  I think these are simple and sweet cards the showcase the new color with style.  I also really like how I can make so many cards with just one sheet of DSP.

Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on June 9th with “Fun Ways to Use Your Stampin’ Up! Products.” Participants showcase at least one of their favorite product tips. Don’t miss the fun!
