Bubble Over Bingo

I wanted to share a recap of my Bubble Over Bingo event at the end of January.  It was so much fun!  I had a full house with all 12 seats in my little classroom taken.  Everyone had fun playing Bingo games and making their projects.  I also made everyone a little table treat for when they arrived and a little thank you gift.  Everyone had a goody bag with the Bubble Over stamp set, Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes and supplies for their projects.  The prize winners also went home with additional goodies – like the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, card stock packs, ribbon, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Paper and more.  Everybody went home with something fun.  I hope you’ll join me the next time I have a Bingo event.

Here are some photos from the day:

 

Here is a close up of the little Bottle Cap Treats that were on the table for everyone. I actually found bottle cap candy to go in them.

A fun time was had by all!

Stampin’ Up! Bingo

I love to play Bingo Stampin’ Up! Style!  You can use the Bingo Stamp (it’s on the retiring list) or My Digital Studio to Create the Bingo card.  And because it is so much fun I made sure that we included it as part of the Stamp, Scrap & Create Escape Retreat.  During the day on Saturday everyone stamped their own Bingo Card using the Every Little Bit stamp set (also on the retiring list).  And punched out markers for their board.  Stamp each image only ONE time on your card.

On Saturday night – Tyler grilled burgers for us.  I missed getting a picture of him – I wonder if anyone else took one.We had a good dinner before we played Bingo.

Then we played Bingo for prizes.

I use the stamps as the call pieces – I just drop them all down in my little SU trash bin.

every-little-bit-bingoAfter Bingo we went out to our campfire for smores – I’ll post those pictures tomorrow.

If you enjoy the Bingo idea be sure to get the stamps before they retire – there is also a Spooky Bingo Bits for Halloween and a Jolly Bingo Bits for Christmas.  Get them before they are gone!  I can order them for you or go to my website to place an order – www.monika.stampinup.net .

Heart #11 – My Digital Studio Valentine Bingo Cards

Valentine Bingo – for Heart #11.  This is actually an old project I made a couple of years ago.  I thought I would share it again – it seems to being getting a lot of hits on my blog – it looks like someone has it linked under free valentine idea site.

I used My Digital Studio to create a Valentine’s Day Bingo game.  I made a Bingo card for each of the boys and an extra one that I cut apart with all the pieces.

For the markers I punched hearts from Real Red card stock using the Small Heart punch.

In My Digital Studio I created an 8-1/2″ x 11″ photo album with one page that had four Bingo Cards on it.  The Bingo card is a digital download.  Then I went through all the stamp sets, embellishments and digital kits and selected different elements that were Valentine related to put in the squares.  I resized any that were too big so they would fit in the square and used colors that were pinks, reds, and browns. I even used buttons and brads in some of the squares.

To make it easy I took an image, sized and colored it the way I wanted it and then copied it and positioned it in a different square on each of the Bingo Cards.  I used the 4th card as the one I would cut the pieces apart for me to call while we played.

When I was done I just printed it out on my printer and cut the cards apart.  This is what the My Digital Studio page looks like that I printed:

I love the Bingo card – both the My Digital Studio one and the actual stamp – it is fun to create Bingo cards to go with any theme that you need them too.

I hope you enjoy this Valentine themed Bingo game!  I may have to make some for Easter this year.  Have fun!

Well that was fast!

The 5th Spring Bingo Winner!  Congratulations to Jeanette!

Jeanette will get the From the Garden stamp set – it is a retired stamp from a few catalogs back.

So that completes Spring Bingo.  Thanks to everyone that played.

To all my loyal Blog Followers I’ll be working up a new Blog Bingo to start probably in May – so be sure to keep checking back for sign ups for that.

Have a great day everyone!

Sew Suite and another winner

I wanted to make a card using the Sew Suite stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog – but I was having trouble coming up with ideas.  So instead I turned to my fellow demonstrators for inspiration.  Checking Stampin’ Connection and looking through blogs until I found some ideas that caught my eye.  This card today is an idea from Heather Klump.  I liked the softness of her card.  Here is mine –

I made a few minor changes from what the original card but the look is basically the same.

My Spring Bingo players – I found one more winner after yesterday’s post.  It was Bethany.

Congratulations!

Bethany will get the Birthday Bakery stamp set.

That’s four winners so far.  How about one more?

So how about one more piece today and we’ll see if that gets us the last winner….

If more than one person gets Bingo it will be the first person that sends me the email that gets the last prize.  So be sure to check your cards and email me right away if you have Bingo.  Good Luck!

Exciting news – I am registered for the Stampin’ Up! Convention in July!  Early Bird registration opened today and I got on first thing and completed my registration.  I have my flight and hotel room.  I’m so excited to be going!  And this year I’ll get to walk across the stage (assuming they continue that tradition – I sure hope so) for my 5th anniversary – yeah!  And I’m going to work hard these next few months so maybe I can walk across for my annual sales too!   I can’t wait to see my demonstrator friends in Utah!

One More Spring Bingo piece

Sorry about the break from the Spring Bingo – I’m still looking for two more winners – I hope you didn’t throw out your cards.  I had planned to finish at the end of March but I didn’t get all 5 winners yet.  So let’s try one more piece and see if we can find them.

Email me and tell me what your Bingo is if you have it.

Sweet Summer Butterfly

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration.  Don’t miss out on the free stamps you can get.  Today I have one more card – ok actually two cards to show you that use the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Sweet Summer.  This card was designed by Stampin’ Up! and I used these last couple of weeks in some of my workshops and classes.  I created two different versions of the card.  And last night the girls actually made one of each size which was kind of fun.  I think we had such a good time last night stamping and chatting we didn’t realize what time it was – I ended up getting home about midnight.

The card on the left is a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card and the one on the right is 5-1/2″ tall and 4-1/4″ wide.  Both use the same supplies the only difference is the top is cut off to make one a square.  Sometimes you just need a square project and this size card will fit in the medium size envelope and is really a nice size.

The card base is Peach Parfait.  You know what this color reminds me of?  My bedroom at my parents house – yes my bedroom was painted peach.  That room isn’t that color anymore and now its my dad’s office but at one point in time it was peach.  I used the background stamp En Francais stamped in Peach Parfait ink.  And I have no idea what the stamp says but it looks pretty.  If you have trouble getting a good impression across this whole stamp what I do is ink up the stamp and lay it on the table on top of my grid paper, then carefully place my card stock on it, then fold the grid paper over it so you can rub across the whole thing and get the ink evenly on your entire piece of card stock.  Lift the paper up and the card stock off carefully.  It works well every time.

In the center is a strip of Old Olive that was stamped with the little stems/leaves image from Sweet Summer.  On each side is a piece of Melon Mambo that was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. (Sometimes I call this the ribbon border because I forget the full name – it’s such a long name).

Then use the Big Shot and the Beautiful Butterflies die and cut the larger full butterfly from the First Edition Specialty Paper and the smaller full butterfly from Melon Mambo card stock.  Stamp the tiny bunch of flowers image in Melon Mambo ink on the Melon Mambo butterfly.  Stamp the open flower image in Peach Parfait on the First Edition butterfly.  Layer them together and tie Linen Thread around the center.  Add a piece of Daffodil Delight card stock punched with the Jewelry Tag punch and stamped with “friends” from Tiny Tags.  Tie it off in a bow or knot.  Add the butterflies to the front of the card.

You can get this Sweet Summer stamp set free if you place a $50 order today.  You won’t be able to buy these sets afterwards so get them while you can.  Let’s see this is what will be gone after tomorrow – So Happy for You, Punch Bunch, Sweet Summer and Bliss stamp sets, Ice Cream Parlor Ribbon & Button pack and Designer Paper and Quick Accents pack, the So Much To Sale-A-Brate Digital Content CD (a must have if you own My Digital Studio), and the Notes Chalkboard Decor Elements.  Click HERE to go to my website and then click on SHOP NOW.

Spring Bingo players – here is the next Bingo piece – is it your winning piece??

Talk to you later…..

Baby Side-Step Card

I saw the cutest baby cards created by Jackie Topa and just had to try it for myself.  It is called a side-step card and was not nearly as hard to make as I was expecting it to be.  Probably because Jackie made an awesome video showing exactly how to do it.  Go to her blog here to see the video and her cards.

This is my version which is pretty much like hers.

The base is Crumb Cake but it would be cute in White or Vanilla for a little girl.  I was trying to make it look generic but it ended up kind of boyish looking.  I love the Jumbo Wheel with all the Onesies  (not sure how to spell that nor do I remember the exact name of that wheel).  Anyway we wheeled out about three of those and colored them with Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also used the Every Little Bit stamp set for the rubber duck and teddy bear.  I’m sure there are several other stamp sets (the All in the Family accessories sets) that have other images you could add.  Isn’t it cute though?  If you visit Jackie’s blog she has measurements and details so I’m not going to include those here.

Spring Bingo isn’t over just yet.  So far I have found 3 winners and I am looking for 2 more.  So lets keep playing – here is the next piece –

Now isn’t that appropriate to have a bird – I promise that is the one I drew out of the basket – really.  It goes right along with my bird post from this morning.  I’m going to take the next two people that email me with Bingo.  Tonight I’m going out to Smyrna for a card club and tomorrow morning I’ll be having a Stamp & Chat get together with a few of my direct downline.  I wanted us to still have the chance to get together in a small group so that’s what I’m starting tomorrow.  That’s all for now!

Don’t forget it’s your last chance to order for Sale-A-Bration and get free sets!  They are all fun and I probably have some more projects to post but I haven’t taken pictures of them yet.  Order online or send me an email – tomorrow is the last day!
