Modern Bike Ride

I made a version of this card, several months back and never put out a video on the process.  When I found it amongst my cards to blog about, I thought oh I have to update this.  See, we no longer have Basic Gray gingham ribbon.  But we do still have it in Night of Navy, a dark rich blue.


I picked out some colors I thought might go with it, and proceeded to video the process.  To my delight it turned out better than I thought.  I am really very pleased with this card, that doesn't always happen for me.


What do you think?

I think the addition of the darker flower colors, on this card, makes it.  Plus it looks almost modern to me.



Here are the measurements (products used at end of post):

Night of Navy - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Whisper White - 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, plus scrap for stamping
DSP - 4 x 5 1/4, plus 1/2 x 3 for sentiment

And I have a video tutorial for you:


I would love to see your creations, come on over to the Spot group and post so we can leave you some love!!

My First Holiday BINGO Stampin Style



Get your best Holiday Sweater on, turn on some Bing Crosby (White Christmas), make some hot chocolate, and grab some fruit cake!

I have to decided to host a Holiday BINGO Stampin' Style this year!!  We had such an awesome time at out BINGO in June, the attendees have requested a Holiday one.  Don't worry, if you can't make it this year.  I will hold one for the Occasions Catalog in January!!

I have created a BINGO Facebook Group, for everyone who joins the fun, 2 weeks prior to the date of party.  I post fun games to earn Door Prize tickets, or what I like to call "Prize Patrol".
This was a huge success, so I am keeping it open for everyone until the next BINGO party.

I will be hosting this online, so you don't even have to get dressed.  I know the best part of going to the party is having the food.  Now while I can't send lots of food, I am planning on sending some Holiday treats in your swag bag.

How will this work?

The party will start with a welcome video from me.  Then I will stop the live feed, and come back with the first Make-N-Take, than stop that feed.  Come back for a BINGO game, and so on.  This way you are given time for a break if needed.  And you can go back to the video's without having one long video.  This worked beautifully at the June event.

I will have a something special for you if you have friends join!

Don't worry the more that join the more door prizes, and BINGO games there will be.  We had 10 games in June.

Plus I will have lot's of projects on display showcasing products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog.

Now let's get down to the details!!!

Come and have some Stampin' Up! BINGO fun! 
This is OPEN to only U.S. participants

July Paper Pumpkin...Picnic Time

There are certain patterns I love, and gingham is one of them. So imagine my delight when I opened my July Paper Pumpkin!!!!
There was Red, Blue, and even Green!! Wait, what?! 

I need to tell what the colors are in Stampin' Up! terms. There is Real Red, Blueberry Bushel, and Granny Apple Green.  Now doesn't sound better than just plain colors.

I love the colors names, don't you?!!  I even find myself out in the world, saying "Hey that's Crushed Curry" hahaha

Ok, get back on track Denise.

The contents of the kit for July had cards and a 3d project, and I loved it!  This has to be one of my top 10 for Paper Pumpkin.

The little baskets are just adorable, and would make great gifts with an addition of some jelly to match the cards. Or maybe an EOS, some flavored candy, or maybe a cookie.

It's a picnic basket and it usually holds food, so I would go with the food treats.


I need to mention a few perks when you subscribe, one being it's HAPPY MAIL EVERY MONTH!

I love when I get my delivery of boxes during the month.  I can not wait to look inside to see what the contents are.


You get at least one stamp set, an ink spot, and adhesives.  And most of the time you get extra supplies to play with to create your own designs.

With my extra items, I created this card.  I did use a few extra supplies not in the kit, but it was only cardstock to coordinate with the kit.


Card Measurements:
Crumb Cake - 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2
Real Red - 1 1/2 x 5 1/4
Granny Apple Green - 1/2 x 5 1/4
Whisper White - 3 x 5 1/4, the gingham is attached to the top, and a small piece behind the apple 

Video of me attempting the blueberry card...be kind, hahaha


If you received the July kit, I would love to see your alternatives posted over on the Ladybug Stampin Spot Facebook group.

Here is the August special promotion for new subscribers, you need to sign up on or before the 10th of this month.
