The end of an era.


Indeed, today it marks the end of the Stampin' Up! MDS program. I am so sorry to see it go, but I can understand it and I will continue to use it as I have learned to love it. Today is also the end of my Subaru era. As you know I have suffered an accident over the Memorial Day weekend and my car was deemed totaled. It was a wonderful car and I felt very bad to see it end that way. There was still a lot of life in that car. Sigh.

But, let's us mark the new month with reasons to celebrate, shall we? The new catalog will roll in in just couple of days and I am excited about it. There are plenty to choose from and I am looking forward to get my hands on lots of new products. As for today's card I used stashed away DSP and the Big Day stamp set for sentiment. A simple and straight forward card inspired on the sketch from the Fusion Wedding Bells challenge.No wedding bells on today's card, but for the birthday to happen, a wedding is necessary or ideal.

Ahoy, mate!



Is this a fresh inspiration? The idea of sail boats is just the ticket for thoughts of the ocean, warm and gentle breeze, and the saltiness that only the ocean can offer. Ah, summer time!


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, dsc134, masculine card, maritime dsp, the open sea stamp set, painted blossoms cotton twine, su

The Dostamper Stars challenge 134 gives me opportunity to reminisce about good old times at the beach. The soon to retire Maritime DSP set the background and The Open Sea stamp set gave the tone. I used a bit of Painted Blossom Cotton Twine for the nautical knot and I think it turned out really well. Much simpler to make than it appears. Love the effect of that against the matching DSP.

Thank you for visiting today. Hope you will be inspired and will create something beautiful today and always.

There are more inspiration for you. Check the other Dostamper Stars out and get even more inspiration.

Celebrate life. Always.



Hello Everyone. Well, this was a busy and very tiresome weekend for my family. We took a short trip to Indiana to see my in-laws and in our way back we were in an accident that totaled our car. It was a very close call and tremendously scary. Fortunately we left the scene standing and with only couple scrapes.
Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, pp246, birthday card, back to black dsp, label love, something to say stamp set, itty bitty accents punch, artisan label punch, su

We took time to contemplate the event and to rest a bit. I did go play in my craft room a bit and that was a relaxing way to get my mind a bit distracted and not so edgy. Life is a wonderful gift that we all received and we shall celebrate it each and every day. A birthday card seems fit for a life celebration, and the sketch from The Paper Players challenge 246 was all I need to put this card together quickly. The Label Love stamp set as well as the Back to Black DSP is due to retire on June 2nd and I will miss them deeply. As you craft this week, take a moment to cherish the little things of life that are, in the end, the most precious and important. Celebrate Life!

Thank you for caring.


Recently I had a friend offer me a help that I never thought I would need and she was so gracious about it all. We do not know each other for too long, but we became very close from the moment we met. It is a gift that we receive and sometimes I wonder if I am deserving of such fantastic people in my life.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, dsc 133, thank you, birthday bash dsp, lots of thanks, big shot, chalk talk framelit, banner triple punch, su

While this card is very simple, I made with my heart feeling fully thankful and used the sketch from the Dostamper Stars challenge 133 to create it. The DSP here is from the Birthday Bash and the sentiment is from Lots of Thanks. I realize how much we receive every day in many ways, and how little I feel that I give. I am blessed beyond measure and I am truly thankful for my life. I thank you all for caring and for every single one of my readers, friends, customers, and supports. Thank you.

The inspiration does not stop here. Check out these other fine ladies from the Dostamper stars:

Sand, Beach, and Sun.

Yes please. I can use all that and then some. We are still dealing with a very moody mother nature that cannot decide if we shall have hot or cold. Over the weekend we reached 80F, and yesterday we did not get pass 50F. Incredible. Oh well.

Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, deonstrator, F4A 273, by the seashore, the open sea stamp set, linen thread, square lattice tief, texture boutique machine, silver mini brads, su

A girl, can, however, dream of beautiful weather, spectacular sunsets, sand, and the gentle warm breeze from the ocean that it is to me as wonderful as a hug. I made this card inspired by these dreams and by the Free for All challenge 273 from Splitcoast Stampers. I used the soon to retire By the Seashore stamp set and the back panel I stamped with The Open Sea stamp set. The texture on the background is from the Square Lattice TIEF, which is also taking its leave from the catalog. A bit of fussy cutting and the shell and star added a bit dimension to this card.  I really like the looks of this card and I cannot imagine a lady or a gentleman that would not feel a gentle tropical breeze when they open the envelope. May the good winds come our way!

Grateful



With a busy weekend, and it appears that lots of students had a busy weekend too with graduation, I can say that I am grateful for times like there. The feeling of accomplishment is a tremendous pay off.

Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, sssc 269, thank you, confetti celebration dsp, big shot, labels collection, banner punch, su

I found some time on Sunday to play in my craft room and get some cards made. My husband took the children for a bit of nature time and I had the house all to myself. The silence, sometimes is a precious thing. I then looked up challenges for today, did a bit of perusing in the internet, and got busy with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 269 for this cards. I am working on clearing up space for the new catalog products and DSP are just something that I must move. Today's choice is the Confetti Celebration along with the Let your Hair Down stamp set. The Labels Collection framelit cut the sentiment and a bit of retired trim to finish up this card. Loved it.

On a completely separate note, as a child I loved reading dictionaries. For the sake of learning words and its meaning. Today I saw one that I never encountered before: Haberdasher. Do you know the meaning of it? Of course I looked up, but if you have not, take a moment and do it. Have fun!

A bit of this, and a bit of that.

CCMC355

What has happened to May? It is half way done with and Spring is showing off its best colors all around us. The trees are a stunning sight with blooms in white, pink, purple, and yellow. I truly appreciate seeing the show nature is putting out for us.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, ccmc 355, get well, sweet sorbet dsp, delightful dozen, circle punches, su

I have been doing some cleaning up and checking my supplies in preparation to the new catalog and new product. I like to go over my stash of paper and tend to go crazy making bunches of cards using my left over stashes. The Sweet Sorbet DSP from 2014 Sale-A-Bration is one of those that I have enjoyed it a lot and saved some for later. Well, later is now and I used the sketch from CCMC 355 for this card. I also used the sentiment from a retired set, the Delightful Dozen and the ribbon is retired too. So, all around is a card featuring retired products that look very fresh and refreshing.
Enjoy this beautiful day that was granted to us to live and enjoy! Be well

I love driving around this time of the year and seeing all the wonderfully colored yards with their lovely flowers that is a clear sign of life refreshing itself.

Then, how can I see the Dostamper Stars challenge 132 and not create a card that showcases just that? Because the beautify of nature it is sometimes so simple, I kept the card very simple. All the images are from the Flower Patch stamp set and I could not ask for a more fitting set for this card.

Cool colors, cool weather....



It is hump day and I am honestly glad to see the end of the week approaching. The week itself has not been bad so far, but the weather certainly can use a mood pill to see if it gets its act together. We need sunshine and we need warmth. Now. Please.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, pp 244, all occasions card, flower pot dsp, bordering blooms, creative elements, texture boutique machine, spring flowers TIEF, itty bitty shapes punch, su

Playing with cool colors and feeling the cool air is fine, except that we are in May already. The color combination, however, from The paper Players challenge 244 is absolutely beautiful and I felt inspired to try something different withe lovely Lost Lagoon Ribbon. I used a small bit of the Flower Pot DSP, a bit of texture on the background, the Creative Elements for the central image, Bordering Blooms to guide my ribbon, and this card turned out stunning. The delicate bow was made using My Bow Maker, which is my very best tool and is always at my reach.
Hope you will be inspired by today's card and also by browsing my blog and find your favorites. Thank you for visiting today and for your love.

Country looking.

PPA250


Well, I am flying solo this week as my husband has a business trip all week. I hope that I can keep the household running smoothly and that there will be time for some crafting too.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, ppa 250, all occasions card, hardwood background stamp, butterfly basics stamp set, big shot, deco labels collections, best year ever accessory pack, su

How about this color combination from Pals Paper Arts challenge 250?  I like it and went for a neutral look that can go either feminine or masculine. Notice the lack of sentiment, so it can be for any and all occasion. Got have such cards handy for those last minute needs. I truly like background stamps as they can change the cardstock so much and so fast. The ferns are from the Beautiful Butterflies, as well as the butterfly itself. The Deco Labels paired well with the colors, and wood grain looks. A touch of ribbon will the look.
Wishing a fantastic week, full of wonderful surprises, and new life lasting memories.

For you mom, thank you.


A special day that celebrate the most special people in the world: mom.  Please do give your mother a hug and spend some time with her. My mom lives in Brazil and the last time I spend mother's day with her was about 17 years ago. Oh well.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, fusion, flower pot dsp, daydream medallion, floral frames, big shot, chevron ribbon, su

But I can, we chat, and I do thank her for everything she has done to bring us up, and for the things she still does. A thank you card is suitable to the occasion, and the Fusion French Twist challenge looked so elegant that I decided that this was for mom. Unlike mom, products do retire, and the Floral Framelits is taking its leave on June 2nd. It is a wonderful set and I think this one will be staying in my craft room for a while. I am hoping that every mother will feel a deep sense of accomplishment today and always. Congratulations to all mothers for an outstanding job raising your children and Thank you.

Please don't go!


I beg you to stay.. But, go they will. I grew accustomed to several of the product that are retiring this year. I do not like to see them go, but new product will take their places and we will continue to create beautiful works of art.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, dsc, thank you, flashback dsp, papillon potpourri, itty bitty banners, bitty butterfly, big shot, bitty banners, butterflies thinlits die, su

Without further ado, and with the Dostamper Stars challenge 131, let's look back at couple product that will be officially retired as of June 2nd. The Itty Banners stamp set along with its framelits are going to take its leave and so will the beautiful Flashback DSP. I did have to prepare a Thank you card for those two, as they were part of many projects and have been well loved around here. Now, I bid you two farewell and you will not be forgotten.

Inspiration continues! Visit these other fine Dostamper Stars ladies to see their take on today's challenge:

A big thank you.

Thankfully the week is over and the warm weather made its way. My children had a ensemble violin recital this past Saturday and the week prior to it, just got to be too busy. I also held a Thank you card Stamp a stack, which kept me busy in a very good way.


Miriam Castanho Bollinger, #mstampinwithyou, stampin up, demonstrator, sc, thank you, lots of thanks, afternoon picnic dsp, elegant bouquet tief, su


With all that I am indeed thankful that it was all well worth it and fun was had by everyone. I did find time to just play a bit and that was wonderful. This card was inspired by the Splitcoast stampers Sketch challenge 538 and to keep with the thank you theme, what better than another Thank you card? Can never have enough of them. I pulled out the stash of retired DSP again and went with the Lots of Thanks stamp set that is retiring this year. I add a tiny bit of texture to the egdge using the Elegant Bouquet tief.  What are you thankful for this week? I hope as the week goes by, you find plenty to be thankful for. Be well.
