 Yup! That's right.

YOU are amazing!

You wanna now what else is amazing? The new Painted Petals stamp set from the Occasions catalog. I admit, I wasn't sure about the flowers at first glance. . . but I fell in love with the sentiments the moment I saw them. . .  and, after playing around with the set, I have found the flowers pair up perfectly with them!

I was inspired to create this super simple card from a challenge over at the Paper Players blog by making a simple card with the sentiment as the focal point. And, although this card would be fun in a number of different color combos, I used the combo inspired by this image from Color Throwdown:

I {heart} mugs.

I must have my morning coffee to survive the day.

I made a fun {ampersand} coffee mug using the Birthday Bash Designer Washi Sheets, the You Plus Me stamp set, and some porcelain chalk paint. Check it out:


Fun, eh?! And. . . super easy to make! Here's how:

Stamp your stamp on a washi sheet.
 
Use an exact-o knife to cut the image out.
Save the cut out, you could use it to make a mug with a mirror image. Place the negative (or positive, depending on what you want your mug to look like) on your mug.
Paint over the mask with porcelain chalkboard paint. Allow ample time to dry.

Remove the mask, and you have your custom mug!

Let's go see the details on Cindy's project, shall we?!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back for another Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! This year is an international team, so be sure to travel around the world with us as as we share our creativity and ideas with you!

I have been racking my brain for non-candy valentines for Gage's class, and when I saw the super cute pirate image from the Hey, Valenitne stamp set it sparked the perfect idea! Gage's Grandpa Foster is always carrying around gold coins, and the grand-kids love getting them, especially Gage! He has quite the collection of gold coins that he keeps in his treasure box. I thought they would fit perfectly with that cute little pirate, and what a great non-candy gift for his classmates and friends!

Plus, Gage got to join me in my stamp room and do his favorite thing. . . COLOR! Did I mention that he won a McDonald's coloring contest?! Yeah, I am the proud mamma of one creative little guy!
 After Gage colored them, I cut a slit in the treasure box to slide the coin into, and then just taped it in place on the backside.
Let's go see what Cindy as created, shall we?!
