RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: In-Color Bundle!

Hello, and welcome to another RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour! It is hard to believe another month has gone by -- the summer always seems to fly, doesn't it?  Our theme this month is the new In Color Bundle, so I have created projects with some of the 2015-2017 In Colors for you.  I love how the new In Colors coordinate with other colors in the Stampin' Up! color palette.  Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron, and Delightful Dijon are simply beautiful!

This card showcases Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, and Whisper White.

Lining the envelope in a coordinating color is easy with our envelope liner framelits.

Here is a close-up of the detail of the butterfly and greeting.

I love the saying that is included with the Watercolor Wings stamp set.

My Stamp Club ladies made a fun little wiper card, and I pulled the colors for the rainbow from the Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack.  This card showcases Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush paired with Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Pool Party.

I was inspired by the project found on page 21 of the catalog.
The little "wiper" with the sunshine tucks into the card when it is closed, and pops up when you open the card.  How fun!  I found the idea in the Autumn Issue of CardMaker magazine and changed the dimensions so it will fit in one of our Medium Envelopes.  

My final project is a fun card featuring the new Circle Of Spring stamp set.  This stamp set coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits so cutting out the wreath is easy-peasy!  This little wreath on the garden gate reminds me of Summer.

The gate was made with Tip Top Taupe, and the card base was Mint Macaron with a Watermelon Wonder layer.  The 2015-2017 In Color Markers were used to color the wreath, and the cute little bow was made with strands from our Burlap Ribbon.  Here is the inside of the card:

I hope you liked these projects featuring the new 2015-2017 In Colors.  You can purchase the 2015-2017 In Color Bundle for $32.50 and get 4 sheets of each color card stock and all 5 Stampin' Pads.  

Now, it's time to see what Missy Bolinger has for us this month.

Happy Stamping,

GBMC Cancer Survivor Celebration!

Yesterday marked the 24th Annual Survivor Celebration at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. This annual celebration is held every June, and is a special day for patients, staff, and family to celebrate Cancer Survivors and their caregivers.  

This year's theme was "metamorphosis and transformation" and the image of the butterfly was used to represent the change that occurs in each cancer patient as they journey on their path to fight cancer.  

I was so excited to hear about this year's theme earlier this Spring. The Occasions Mini Catalog had just launched, and I could not wait to show the employees at the Oncology Support Services Department the Butterfly Thinlits.  They loved them, too!

So, we began cutting out butterflies several weeks ago.  I even wrote a short blog post about it here.  It was truly a group effort to cut out all of those butterflies, and I was happy to contribute to it. The real magic happened once Landri and Felicity worked to make their vision take shape.  

The decorations they created with these butterflies were breath-taking!  The photos just cannot capture the beauty of the conference center -- it, too, was transformed.  The employees of the Sandra and Malcolm Berman Cancer Institute did a magnificent job with this event.  

The Celebration included 
  • Great music by patients, family and staff
  • Wonderful music from the children of Clef
  • Lots of yummy food
  • An inspiring guest speaker who was a young adult cancer patient at GBMC
  • A beautiful multimedia presentation featuring photography of a survivor's son set to original music written by a friend
  • Beautiful bouquets of flowers to honor survivors and their caregivers
  • Surprising Dr. Cohen with the Making A Difference Award and hearing him speak on the new developments in cancer research
  • Dr. Cohen's impromptu performance of "Brown Eyed Girl" with his new guitar 
  • Door prizes
  • Fellowship and friendship of patients, family, and staff -- it was a wonderful day!

Here are some photos from this magnificent day:

I was so happy to share this day with a dear friend and fellow stamper, Sandi!

A perfect afternoon!
Here is the beautiful multimedia presentation.

RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour: Going Places

Hello, and welcome to the RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour!  Our theme this month is "Going Places."  

Many people say that making masculine-looking cards is a challenge, so I decided to give it a try with a fun fold I recently found on Pinterest (Thanks, Di Barnes).  I pulled my World Map, Traveler, and Guy Greetings stamp sets and started creating!  Here is what I came up with:

Card and custom envelope

View of card from above

The fun fold is called the Pop-Out Book Card, and it is really much easier than it looks.  I just taught it to my Stamp Club ladies today, and they loved it!

I used Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, and Very Vanilla card stock and some of the brand-spankin' new Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  I stamped with Blackberry Bliss and Delightful Dijon ink.  The Blackberry Bliss ink on the Rich Razzleberry card stock really made the images pop.

We made a custom envelope since this card measures 5 1/2 x 
5 1/2 inches.  It was easy with our Envelope Punch Board.  A train stamped on the front of our custom envelope coordinates with the train images on the card.  

Here are the supplies I used for this project:

I hope you enjoyed this project.  Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger created!  

Here is the complete line-up of blogs on this tour:
