Celebrate Today Bokeh Technique/ Weekly Deals 3/24/2015

Celebrate Today Bokeh Card

We are having some foundation work done at the house...can you tell?  The front porch is gone and the dirt is pulled back from the foundation.  My poor flower beds are gone but my guys helped me pull out the roses before the backhoe arrived.

Update:  Here is the card with extra white circles added by the sponge dauber and also string from the SAB In Color Accessory pack.  Winner!
Hello and happy Tuesday!  Things have been hopping here lately.  Our foundation needed work and our porch was sinking (sloppy work initially) so life has been a bit crazy.  I did take time to work on this card this afternoon and thought that I would share.  I am going to put string on later tonight and also added a few more smaller white circles with Whisper White Craft ink.

Celebrate Today

Whisper White Craft ink and CS
Night of Navy ink and CS
Chalk inks, Rose Coral, Aquamarine, Yellow Citrus

Vellum (balloons with framelits)
Window Sheets (make a template and use the circle framelits to punch out circles)
Framelits-circles and Balloons
Sponge Daubers (sponging circles in colors)
String (for balloons), In Color Accessory pack
Sponge (sponging background in Navy)
Big Shot

  1. Sponge Navy all over a 3 3/4"x 5" sheet of White cardstock.
  2. Use the Big shot to cut circles (framelits) in the window sheet (cut my sheet in fourths).
  3. Lay the template over the navy sponged CS and sponge white craft ink all over circles.  I repositioned my template to add additional circles.
  4. Use the sponge daubers to add smaller circles in white and Chalk inks.
  5. Cut out the balloons in vellum with the balloon framelit.  Stamp the desired images with white ink.
  6. Adhere balloons and attach string.  I used the Chalk marker here to add strings.
Happy stamping!

I really love this stamp set, Moon Lake, in the Occasions catalog.  It is definitely on my wish list because it is such a fabulous set for a guy's card.  I love the Hardwood stamp with it!

Moon Lake Father's Day Card/ Weekly Deals and Blendabilites Update

Blendability News
A number of you have experienced quality issues with the Blendabilities product line, which has resulted in frustration for  you. Due to the nature of the defect, we have concluded that difficulties, dissatisfaction, and product returns will only become more widespread. The manufacturer is unable to correct the problem in a manner that we are certain would meet our high quality standards and provide us with a stable, long-term solution. Therefore, after a great deal of deliberation and in order to prevent further disappointment, the Blendabilities product line has been discontinued.  Bummer, huh?  I really loved having a line of alcohol markers.

Please contact me ASAP if you have any on backorder (won't be fufilled) or if you have any that are faulty.

Valentine's Day gift boxes/Blendabilities Updates/Weekly Deals

Above are pictures of the Valentines goodies my Heart Pal sent last month.  Also, the Blendabilites are creating some ripples on the pond!  Here are the updates announced by Stampin Up:

We are experiencing a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line. Except for the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad Refill (item #133456), all item numbers have been turned off; this includes Blendabilities Sale-A-Bration item numbers.
At this time, backorders for Blendabilities will not be fulfilled. 

Here is a later update:

As we announced last week, all of our Blendabilities item numbers have been shut off due to product quality issues (not lack of availability). Because we don't anticipate a quick solution for this situation, we ask that those of you with 1) Blendabilities items on backorder or 2) Sale-A-Bration Blendabilities redemptions on backorder to call Demonstrator Support to exchange them for another item. When you call, please have your order number and replacement item number ready. 

If you have Blendabilites on backorder or your current sets are faulty please contact me ASAP with a list of the Blendabilites sets and item numbers of the items you would like in exchange.
