Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day 3

Hello!  Thanks for hopping this week with the Glitter Queens!!  You should have  arrived from Dee Slater's blog.

When I first received the Occasions Catalog in the mail from Stampin'Up!, Sheltering Tree was on my list first.  Love love love this stamp set.  Here is my card using the stamp set:
So easy to make something so amazing, huh?  I used Calypso Coral for the card base, and Whisper White for the stamping layer. The leaves are stamped using Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Real Red.  Gumball Green was used for the grass and Tuxedo Black was used for the sentiment.  
There are so many cute additions to this stamp - a leaf rake, a bicycle, and a swing - really super cute!!!  I will make many more cards using this stamp set.  Drop by sometime to take a look around.

Another close up of my card:

Here again, is the blog line up:


Please stop by all the Glitter Queens today.  Tracy Bradley is next.  Off to play with my new Paper Pumpkin that arrived yesterday!  Happy Stampin'!

Day 2 of the Glitter Queens Blog Hop

Tuesday, February 17th.

Welcome back to another day of the Glitter Queens blog hop.  Again, you should have come from Dee Slater's blog.  I have the links below for all of us.

Today, I have another favorite from the Occasions Catalog - Indescribable Gift 
 I used Stampin'Up!'s blendabilities markers.
It is a shape card I made using the largest oval (and only scalloped) die in the Ovals Framelits.  Here is what the inside looks like:
I used Coastal Cabana for the base card,and paper from the SAB Best Day Ever paper pack cut with the same size scallop oval frame lit, then used  Calypso Coral cut with the next size smaller  Oval framelit and embossed with the Big DOT embossing folder,  The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White paper.  The ribbon is also from the SAB - buttons and ribbons pack.  
Another close up of the front:

First up is the card I made for my son's 17th birthday:

One of my MOST favorite new stamps sets is the "Wood You Be Mine" from the Occasions Catalog.  I thought of Christian right away who would LOVE to have a beard like this fellow has....

Here is a better close up:

I used the SAB stamp set, Big Day, the paper from the Occasions catalog, Adventure Bound, the banner is from the Balloons framelits also from the Occasions catalog.  Very faintly on the paper, you will see the number 17 - that is from the Larger Than Life stamp set.  I stamped it boldly on the inside.  

Thank you for visiting today.  This is my first time hopping and as you can see from my blog, I am not a very active blogger, but hope to change this as I participate in more hops and challenges in the future.  Please stop by Tracy Bradley's website

See you tomorrow!!!

It's not quite berry picking season, but I couldn't resist these darling little strawberries made using Stampin'Up!'s dsp.  The berry basket die is in the Occasions Catalog - one of my top 10's from the catalog.  I will be sharing some of my other favorites during a Glitter Queens blog hop starting Monday, February 16th.
