Welcome to Kylie's International Blog Highlights! A Baby theme steals the show this month! One incredible bonus with this months International Highlights is the incredible New Creativity Your Way 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! What a wonderful assortment of new options to mix with some of the much loved and familiar Stampin' Up! staples.

The base of the card offers a great option for a gender reveal shower! The Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set in Powder Pink, So Saffron, and Soft Sky covers the length of the card offering a color combination fit for any new bundle of joy!

Next, the Large Letters Framelits spell out a popped out 'BABY' four layers thick in the same cardstock colors as that of the coordinating Classic Stampin' Up! Inks used. Grid Paper comes in really handy to line up everything!

What would a Baby Shower Card be without an Umbrella from the Weather Together Stamp Set! 

The Umbrella image was stamped in Smoky Slate on top of the circular images from the Lovely Inside & Out Stamp Set. An additional umbrella was stamped and decorated with the assorted hearts, fussy cut, and popped up on dimensionals above the stamped image.

The solid hearts received a little glossy accents touch with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. 

The little package can be the final little reveal giveaway! The pretty little package is popped up using a few other fussy cut packages adhered one on top of the other. Here the dots also have a touch of clear dimension created again from using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. 

Finally, the Whisper White panel was cut down slightly and centered on a Smokey Slate 5.5" x 4.25" panel and adhered to a top folding Thick Whisper White Card base.

Global Design Project GDP#089 Color Challenge

Falling Flowers

Thank You for stopping by and checking out the latest Global Design Project! This week a color challenge offers projects from designers and other papercrafters. Click on the image below to see all card designs.

I created a card with the Falling Flowers Stamp Set and the May Flowers Framelits using the challenge colors in varying degrees. Basic Black, Old Olive, and Calypso Coral Cardstocks, Vellum, Embossing Powder, a Textured Embossing Impressions Folder, and Classic Stampin' Up! Ink Pads provided perfect mediums to create this week's challenge card.

The largest bloom was stamped in Calypso Coral to create a tone on tone image with a layered center embossed with VersaMark Black Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. 

The next largest bloom was also stamped in Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' Ink on Calypso Coral Cardstock. In addition, a Fine-Tip Glue pen added a clear layer of adhesive and depth of color. 

Vellum was stamped with a Calypso Coral Classic Stampin' Pad and then stamped again with Black VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. A cutout of Very Vanilla provided a base for the colored Vellum.

Old Olive Cardstock, along with VersaMark and Old Olive Classic Ink was used to create all the greenery.

A focal point of Basic Black offered the perfect backdrop for the sentiment and Floral cluster.

Very Vanilla Cardstock with an Oh My Stars Impression Folder created the card base and Thick Vanilla Cardstock provided the vertical Folding Card. 

Thank You for join me this week for another Global Design Project Challenge. Subscribe to my Blog!

Aim for Alaska Blog Hop Catalog Sneak Peek

Daisy Delight & Lovely Friends

Welcome to the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop! I recently joined the Aim for Alaska Training group and I am enjoying the benefits of a supportive community, which seeks to share information on a variety of topics aimed to grow one an others Stampin' Up! business!

Image may contain: mountain, sky, outdoor, nature and water

I am so excited to have the opportunity to learn from a vast number of leaders and other demonstrators who are sharing their success (and their failures), as well as the option of participating in events that provide a platform to share and foster creativity like this blog hop! 

I decided to do a little watercoloring backdrop for the Delightful Daisy Suite in Bermuda Bay.

I also stamped the script impression form the Background Bits Hostess Stamp Set in Early Espresso on Crumb Cake Cardstock, which is followed by a Whisper White Frame cut from Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped with other images form the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Fussy Cutting, not my favorite thing, of a few leaves and a stem placed in the center of the frame ends in a watercolored daisy punched with the new Daisy Punch.

A Thank You Banner punched with the Banner Triple Punch and layered with Vellum sits across the front of the card.

There are so many new items set to debut the 1st of June from the new Creativity Your Way 2017-2018 Annual Catalog! Hopefully, my card and the other projects in the Aim for Alaska Blog Hop has your creative juices flowing with new and exciting inspiration!

Global Design Project GDP087 Theme Challenge See What is Cooking!

Sneak Peek Wood Words

Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been cooking up! Today you are in store for more than a baked treat!

Click here to see all the other entries!

I would like to introduce you to my husband. Raul spent 24 years in the United States Navy. The Navy is where we met over 20 years ago as young twenty somethings embarking on our own life's adventure. 

Raul retired in 2013 and dare I say, he misses the Navy dearly! The transition to civilian life was not an easy one, but out of the process, Raul has perfected a few of his hobby undertakings. 

He loves to cook! I mean, he really, really, really loves to cook! He is passionate about food and even has his own garden with amazing veggies and four chickens named Chicken noodle, Delilah, Laverne, and Shirley. He loves those fresh eggs!

One treat I enjoy every week is my hubbies homemade bread! It took months of work to become what it is today and out of Raul's labor, I enjoy his healthy, mouth watering, and hand shaped loaves. We have not purchased store bought bread for quite some time now and instead we slice into a new fresh loaf each week! 

He is even thinking about creating larger batches and selling them at our local Farmer's Market along with his special mild and hot RRR Gourmet Spicy Any Food Sauce. I will have to save that for another day.

Along with featuring Raul's Homemade bread, he favors the colors yellow and blue. Not surprisingly they are his beloved Navy colors!!! Here is a photo of a throw pillow in his home office and the inspiration colors behind my project for this weeks Global Design Project Cooking, Baking, and Making Theme Challenge.

I created a fun tag to adorn Raul's labor of love. The large tag was created with Daffodil Delight Cardstock and stamped with a cluster of floral images from the new Wood Words Stamp set and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. The Wood Words Stamp Set is coming very soon in the new Creativity Your Way Annual Catalog 2017-2018!

The additional smaller banner is a strip of Whisper White Cardstock stamped with the same floral cluster but in Daffodil Delight Ink. However, the Night of Navy 'You' is from the new Lovely Friends Stamp Set.

Also, in Night of Navy is the "I Loaf' sentiment created using the Letters for You Stamp Set and Large Letters Framelits! I popped the letters up using fun foam cut with the Large Letters Framelits. 

Lastly, some natural twine was used to to connect the label and banner with one additional string of twine ending in the Real Red and Crumb Cake Layered Circle and Circled Scallop shapes stamped and heat embossed with the Farmer's Market logo from the Woods Words Stamp Set.

I think we are ready for market!

Fresh from the oven and the aroma is delectable!
