In the Sea

Hi! Today I have a card showcasing the Tranquil Textures Suite in the new catalog!  The Sea of Textures Stamp set and dies are so  fun to play with!

Thanks, Octopus, Sea of Textures, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018AnnualCatalog

I demonstrated this card on Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live yesterday.  I love all the different elements on this card along with the color combination!  The three main colors are Fresh Fig, Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide.

The base of the card is Mint Macaron.  A piece of Designer Series Paper from the Tranquil Textures pack is mounted on that at a skewed angle.

A Watercolor Wash technique using the three colors was applied to a piece of Watercolor Paper.   The net behind the octopus is die cut with the coordinating dies from Crumb Cake card stock.  The octopus is Fresh Fig which is first stamped on scrap paper, then on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. He is die cut using the coordinating die.   The sentiment is stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.  The octopus is attached using dimensionals.

The finishing touch is thick Baker’s Twine using the Nature’s Twine collection.

Here’s the video – it is the second card:

Sad Saying Goodbye

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring one of my all time favorite sets in the Annual Catalog – Vintage Leaves.  I am extremely sad to see this set and the coordinating framelits leaving this year.

Vintage Leaves, Leaves, Fall, Thank You, Wood Textures DSP, DSP, #loveitchopit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, I paired the retiring Vintage Leaves stamp set with Wood Words and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  The leaves are stamped directly on the Wood Textures DSP – I love the added depth it gives the leaves.  Here’s a closer look:

Vintage Leaves, Leaves, Fall, Thank You, Wood Textures DSP, DSP, #loveitchopit, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Even the die cut leaf (die cut using the Seasonal Layers thinlet) is die cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  The other leaves were stamped in Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.

The leaves are layered on a  4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Wood Textures DSP and the base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ of thick Whisper White card stock.

The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip (going to miss this color!) and is from Wood Words stamp set.  This is punched with a 1″ circle punch and layered on a 1 1/4″ circle punch of Cajun Craze card stock.   A bow made from linen thread finishes off the card.

If you haven’t yet purchased the Vintage Leaves stamp set and coordinating Leaflet Framelits, I highly recommend getting them now!  Shop my on-line store and use Hostess Code: 4CKMSHRT  This is a great masculine, Thanksgiving, Thank You, Fall, Thinking of You stamp set.

Love It, Chop It

Hi!  Today I am sharing my creations using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  If you Love your Designer Series Paper, Chop It – so you can use it!

#loveitchopit, Daisies, Delight Daisy, Daisy Delight, Designer Series Paper, DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I LOVE this paper!  It is so pretty and really doesn’t need much more added to it.  I shared these quick and easy cards with those who qualified for the Sale-A-Bration Celebration party this past month.  They were each given 4 4″ x 5 1/4″ pieces of Designer Series Paper, 2 sheets of solid color card stock coordinating with the paper and 1 sheet of Whisper White card stock to make their own versions.

For this set, Calypso Coral is the base for the card stock.  On two of the card Tranquil Tide is used as a mat behind the sentiment.  Given the prettiness of the paper, the other purpose was to showcase larger sentiments.  The Happy Birthday is a single stamp in the catalog.  Thanks Kindly is from One Big Meaning and hello is from  Hello, Friend stamp set.

I also used the coordinating Daisy Delight stamp set on two of the cards.  In both instances, the daisies were stamped in Smoky Slate ink and punched with the coordinating punch.  The centers are circles punched from Tranquil Tide card stock.  A touch of ribbon and linen thread finished off the two outside cards.

Here’s a closer look at a few of the cards:

#loveitchopit, DSP, Delightful Daisy, Happy Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!

#loveitchopit, Hello, Hello Friend, Stampin' Up!, DSP, Delightful Daisy, SU!  I am having quite a bit of fun using up Designer Series Paper – it feels good to use it up!  New papers will be coming out soon – and this is a great time to finish up paper and make room for new!!

I hope this inspires you to #loveitchopit and use that gorgeous patterned paper in your stash!

Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop

Hi! Today I am playing along in the Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop!  I joined this group this year to work on building my business and earn a trip to GREECE!!  I still have a long way to go to earn the trip, but through sales, recruiting and team building, I am making some head way.

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Eclectic Expressions Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

Dragonfly, Thank You, Circles, Eclectic Expressions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018SAB

I just LOVE this card – from the color combination to the layout – it is one of my favorites that I created for last Friday’s Sale-A-Bration Gone Wild class.  For colors, I paired Fresh Fig, Rose Red and Smoky Slate.  The stamps in this set are so versatile and can be used for all kinds of cards for young ones, old ones, males and females.  I great set to have in your collection!

The stamped panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is layered on a Fresh Fig card stock layer measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Smoky Slate, measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.

The Dragonfly is die-cut using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets from Basic Black card stock.  He is then covered in Clear Wink of Stella for a sparkly look.  Here is close up of him:

Dragonfly, Eclectic Expressions, Glitter, Thank You, 2018SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU

So pretty!!! The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and the end is punched with the Triple Banner punch.  This is layered on a piece of Fresh Fig card stock also punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  I found it easier to punch my Whisper White sentiment panel first and then use that as a guide for punching the Fresh Fig layer.

Petal Palette Clean & Simple

Hi!  How are you?  I hope you are doing well!  Sorry for not posting for a few days – ended up out of town for a business trip and wasn’t able to get a post written before I left.

Today I have a clean and simple card featuring the Petal Palette stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.

Thank You, Thanks, Petal Palette, Stampni' Up!, SU!, 2018Occasions

I love the clean look of this card!  I typically struggle with CAS (Clean and Simple) cards, but am very happy with how this one turned out.  The flowers are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The leaves are colored with the Old Olive Duo Pack and the flowers with Pink Pirouette and Cherry Cobbler Dark Blends.  I love that you can see just a hint of the Pink Pirouette in the flower petals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I used a small scrap of Berry Burst card stock punched with the Ribbon punch to tuck underneath.  A few Rose Red Regal Enamel shapes to accent the sentiment and there you have it.

For the layers, Thick Whisper White is used for the base and is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  A Basic Black layer 5 1/4″ x 4″ is adhered to the base while the stamped  panel is Whisper White cardstock measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″.

An easy enough card to mass produce if you are in need of quite a few.   Change out the sentiment to make it a Birthday or Congratulations card!

A Two Pointer

Hi!  I recently came across this fold by Lisa Curcio and had to try it!  It is so easy to do and is a great way to use some of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper!

Fancy Fold, Double Point Fold, Thank You, Birthday, Cards, Sweet Cupcakes, Petal Pallete, DSP, InColors2017, Stampin' Up!, SU!

It is called the Double Point fold!  Isn’t it fun!   It uses 2 pieces of Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 3″.  A great way to use up some of your Designer Paper.     Here is what you do:

  1. Score at 1″ along the 3″ side.
  2. Fold the corners furthest from the score line down to the score line.
  3. Use adhesive to hold the corners down.
  4. Attach the 1″ flap to the top and bottom of a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
  5. Attach the Whisper White card stock to a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ colored card stock.
  6. Use punches or die cuts for your front focal image that is big enough to span the two points.
  7. Decorate as desired and stamp a sentiment under the focal image for the inside of the card if desired.
  8. Attach the focal image to the TOP ONLY using dimensionals.  For the cupcakes –  I used 3 dimensionals; for the bird, I could only use one.  Details on the actual cards below.

Here is a link to Lisa’s video if you’d like a visual.

For the cupcakes, I used the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper stack.  My base colors are Lemon-Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  The colors for the “vanilla” cupcake are:  Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and So Saffron (in that order for the stamps labeled 1, 2, and 3).   I did stamp off the Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand stamps once before stamping on my paper.  I am very happy with how my cupcake turned out.

For the Lemon-Lime Twist card, I used Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist for the two colors (in that order for stamps labeled 1 and 2).  For Berry Burst, I used Berry Burst and Powder Pink in that order.   After they dried, I went over the “frosting” with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen.

Birthday, Cupcake, Sweet Cupcake, Double Point Fold, Fancy Fold, Stampin' Up!, SU!

It sparkles more in real life than I could capture in my picture.   The sentiment is from the You Are Inspiring stamp set in the Occasions Catalog and punched out with the Duo Banner punch.   I did attach the frosting with dimensionals to the cupcake.   These were attached to a Berry Burst Lots of Labels die cut (the second largest die).

The bird is from the Petal Palette stamp set and is stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with the Daffodil Duo Blends.  Tranquil Tide is my base color and the Designer Series Paper is from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  The bird is punched out with the 2″ circle punch and is layered on a 2 1/4″ Tranquil Tide circle.

I taught this fold at a workshop last week and the attendees loved it!  I’ll be doing it again at the March Madness class I am hosting on March 9.  I think it’ll be a big hit!

We are in the last month of Sale-A-Bration!  If you have not yet taken advantage of all the Sale-A-Bration has to offer, now is the time!!  Shop my on-line store with Host Code: 9PSW36TE for a FREE tutorial featuring the Celebration Time stamp set!

More Fun with Brushos

Hi!  I am back today with another card made using the Brushos!

Brushos, Watercoloring, Dragonflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Thanks

I actually demonstrated how to do this background on my Facebook page Tuesday night, Jan 30th.  You’ll find it on this page.  The Brushos are quite fun to play with – there are so many different techniques and so many colors you can make from the 5 colors that come in the set.

For this particular background panel, I sprinkled the Yellow and Brilliant Blue Brushos on Whisper White cardstock then spritzed with water.  If you spritz at an angle, the colors will spray and spread more than if you spritz straight down.  Once dry, it was layered on a piece of Basic Black card stock.  My base is the Thick Whisper White.

For the dragonflies, die cut from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  Embellish with Wink of Stella Clear.  They’ll become sparkly:

Dragonflies, Brushos, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Occasions2018

The fun with Brushos – even when using the same two colors – you can get a different look!   I hope you’ll give them a try!

All supplies used in the making of this card can be found in my on-line store.  Use hostess code: AWRFCDQY

And don’t forget, we are still Sale-A-Brating and you earn FREE products on qualifying orders!

A Little Toucan…

Of Appreciation!   Do you like play on words?  I do!  So this set is right up my alley!

Birds, Puns, Bird Banter, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018OccasionsCatalog

I miss the “For the Birds” set so was very excited when I saw Bird Banter in the Occasions catalog.  I finally  had a chance to play with it and came up with this card to thank those who place orders with me this month.   For this card, I used the toucan image and colored him with the Stampin’ Blends.  I love these markers and feel they are well worth the investment.   The patterned paper is from the Picture Perfect Party DSP stack and is mounted on a Lemon Lime Twist mat.  The base is Bermuda Bay.  I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock layered with the Calypso Coral Ombre ribbon behind my image.  The image is die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  This is layered on a Bermude Bay stitched circle.   The sentimenet is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink in the lower right corner.  I hope my customers enjoy this one!

It’s not too late for you to receive one of these cards!  Simply place an order through my on-line store by January 31st and you’ll receive one as well!  Sale-A-Bration is in full swing now and every $50 purchase (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration product from the brochure.

Wild About Flowers

Hi! Today I am taking part in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights and our theme is All About Flowers!   If you’d like to vote for your favorites, please click here.  I’d love to make the Top 10 this month and take part in a special January Blog Hop for the Top 10 winners!

Ok, well, it would be good if you know what you are voting for.  Here is my card:

Flowers, Thank You, International Highlights, Wild About Flowers, Burlap BG, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I am so happy with how this card turned out.  I started with the Burlap background stamp inked in Crumb Cake ink.  I then stamped the leaves in Always Artichoke and the flowers in Cajun Craze from the Wild About Flowers stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Hello Friend stamp set and stamped in Cajun Craze as well.  I used the Triple Banner punch to make the flag look for the sentiment.

A scrap of Cajun Craze card stock was placed along the bottom of the stamped panel.  I trimmed a piece of the burlap ribbon in half (I wanted a narrow piece) to wrap around the Cajun Craze.   The sentiment is attached using dimensionals.

The stamped panel is also attached with dimensionals to a Thick Whisper White card stock base.

The card is being sent to someone special – their support of my Stampin’ Up! on-line presence on social media has been so uplifting and I wanted to let them know.  I hope they like it!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you will click the link above and check out the other entries and vote for your favorites!
