Sneak Peek of Stampin’ Up! NEW stamps!

Today I am sharing a NEW stamp set due out in June from SU!, called Colorful Seasons!  I also used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with it!

Here is what I made:

I want to be sitting in that chair drinking some tea and watching the water go by!  Don’t you?   To make this card look like it was in a frame, I made my own frame out of Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin’ Up!

I also used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree to give the scene some dimension!  I had this card in my head since Friday and I just HAD to try and see if I could get it to come out of my head onto card stock and look just as pretty!  I think I did, what do you think?

Here is a closeup of the flowers in the tree:

I cut out the stamped images using the Thinlit and then with the Berry Blast inked flower I added some of SU!’s Fine Tip Glue so it would make it look puffy and shiny!  Love these new Colors! For the light pink I used the NEW In Color Powder Pink!

Here is a side view of the card so you can see how I made it look framed:

All of the flowers and the branches come off the framed Soft Sky piece of card stock!  I DID add pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips onto the back of not only the Soft Sky but also each flower, so they wouldn’t get squished down with mailing.  I wanted more space than what the Dimensionals would give me so that’s why I used it.

That adirondack (spelling?) chair is so stinkin’ cute!  Right?  Do you see the glass of ‘tea’ I have sitting there?

Here’s the inside of the card:

I hope to have more ideas for you in the near future, so be sure and subscribe to my blog to not miss out!

I’ve got some NEW Blog Candy to give away!!

It’s the Happy Heart Embossing Folder by SU!   I absolutely love embossing folders, hope you do too!  I will be holding the drawing on May 15th!  How do you get this for FREE!?  You either place a comment here (no limit to how many times) on my blog, or on my Facebook Page (no limit there either!),  That’s it!  How else can you get a Stamp set for FREE!?

I will miss this!

Today I made a greeting card from a Retiring stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Love & Affection.  I forgot how much I love this set!  I’ll be sorry to see it go!

I used some of the Designer Series Paper called Affectionately Yours that I have HOARDED!  Yes, I can admit it, I hoard paper!  Sigh……

This isn’t just any Designer paper, oh no!  It has Copper embossed in it!  Yes!  It’s true!  Now do you see why I hoarded it?  This card today is made up by me……I don’t do this very often.  I have been wanting to use the Framelit from the Fiesta Time stamp set!  And that’s how my card started!  Ha!  Funny how that worked!  I cut out two of the strips that are the half circles that are attached together to make a banner, I cut out one from Watermelon Wonder (retiring) and Mint Macaron (also retiring).  This is where I started, I thought these colors looked good with Night of Navy, so that is what the center cardstock will be, since those will be resting on that cardstock.

Pretty together, right?  The colors I used are listed below with a link to my Online Store.  The Hostess Code for this month is:  69EGW4G2   If you purchase from me, I will send you a VERY pretty handmade card!

Here are the measurements of my card if you want to try it!

Tip Top Taupe  5 1/2″ X 7 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″  landscape
Night of Navy (inside) 4″ x 5 1/4″,  (front) 3″ x 5 1/4″
Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) 2 – 3/4″X 5″
Whisper White Inside:  3″ x 5 1/8″, scraps for sentiment

Here is the card in all it’s Beauty!

I used the Petite Petals punch (retiring) to make a focal flower on the front in Copper Foil.  And cut out the sentiment using the Decorative Label punch (also retiring), I cut out another two of the Decorative Label from the Copper Foil to give a border around the sentiment.  You cut each piece in half and then layer them on the back!

I sponged VersaMark on the edges of the Fiesta Time Framelits to give a little Copper edging to it!  Also along the edge of the Night of Navy I stamped in VersaMark the flowers from the Stamp set and embossed with Copper!  Added some pearls to each half circle on top, and to the small flowers on the inside flap.

Here is a picture of the inside!

I love how elegant this card is!!  So, STOP hoarding your DSP and use it!  Before you know it you’ll be getting new DSP and will forget all about the ones you’ve been hanging onto for a special day!  The day is NOW!

The side of the inside is peeking out on the front,

I am proud of myself!  It’s a little scary to just go with an idea and not know how it will turn out!  Sometimes it doesn’t, but that’s where you learn!  Remember, it’s just paper!  I tell myself that when I am really scared!  heehee  Are you scared when you try something without any idea on where it is headed?   You might just surprise yourself (like I did!) when you give it a try!

I hope you enjoyed your visit here today!  I would love to hear from you, I will be having another Blog Candy drawing soon, I have to figure out what to give away!  What would you rather…….stamp sets, ribbon, accessories, paper?  I want to give out what YOU want!!  Let me know!

Easy Way to Make a Vintage Card, Plus Blog Candy Winner

I saw on Pinterest a card using the rubber stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called In This World.  I had bought this set because I love anything Vintage and this called to me!

I changed it up so much that I went back to see hers and it was nothing like what mine turned out as!  Has that happened to you? You can find her YouTube video here  It’s very pretty, but not the way I went with mine.  I followed some of her ideas, but that’s as far as I got!

Here is my version:  

 

What do you think?  It needed a ‘spot’ of color, so I added the ribbon and the Falling In Love Trinket.  This picture has the Burlap ribbon in it, going along the side.  I ran out (I’m making swaps for my Savannah OnStage event!!) so I just went without for the rest of the swaps.

Here is the other version:  

I used VersaMark on the sides of BOTH swaps and added Gold Embossing Powder.  Plus added it to the Sentiment to make it stand out.

Here is a close-up of the treatment on the Soft Sky:  

I used almost every Stamp in this set!  The only one I didn’t use is the chair.  And I LOVE the chair, so I will have to come up with something to use that the next time!

I used the stamp from the In This World that has the long strip of dimensions?  I have a question mark there because I’m not sure what to call it!  Do you know?  I stamped that image in Crumb Cake on the top left and bottom right. Then stamped again, along top and bottom left using Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the one on the right bottom once on a scrap and then on the page, so the key will show up.  That is stamped in Early Espresso too!  I then stamped the blotchy stamp (that’s what I call it!) from the Stamp set Gorgeous Grunge using the Crumb Cake all over the card, stamping off every other time.  I then sponged it with Crumb Cake on ALL sides, sponging really well so it went towards the center.  Then sponged SOFTLY using the Early Espresso ink.  Just to give it a dark outer edge.

I stamped the door on Very Vanilla (it doesn’t look like it does it!), that shows how much I sponged it!  I used Early Espresso for the Door, and Crumb Cake for the sponging.  But first I distressed the edges by ripping, bending and tearing , I tore off the corner.  You have to make sure you do the distressing first, and THEN sponge.  This way the edges that bend over are sponged on both sides.  My shoulders were HURTING by the end of this, and I only made 30 cards!  I usually make a LOT more, but I’m glad I didn’t this time!

Here is the inside: 

I didn’t sponge the inside because I wanted it to stay pristine, so you can see what is written when sending it.  Would you be happy to get this card?  Or is it too messy?

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Vintage card, have I forgotten how to do it?  I feel needy today for some reason!  It could be because I was winging it the whole time!  LOL

Here is the Blog Candy that I’m giving away today:

Congrat’s to the Winner:  Sue Root!!

I hope you enjoyed the project today!  Please let me know which one you like more, with or without the Burlap Ribbon.  Sometimes you look at something so long you just can’t be the judge!

Hope to see you again, soon!  Make sure you subscribe so you won’t miss when I post.

Impressive but easy Embossing Folder Technique

Today, I decided to do some experimenting!  Ever get an idea in your head and you just HAVE to get it out!?  I get them all the time, USUALLY when I’m trying to go to sleep at night……UGH!

I wanted to see what would happen if you added Mod Podge to SU!’s cardstock so it’s covered and THEN run it through an Embossing Folder.  Yes, it’s messy.  Yes, you will want to wash your folder right away!   And YES it it really cool!!  After running it through (and washing my folder) I heat set it.  I am NOT very patient…….hence the heat drying!  I did it on Garden Green cardstock and I did it on Shimmery White from Stampin’ Up!  LOVE, LOVE LOOOOOVE their paper!  Well, let me be honest, I love all their product! hahaha   This is the main reason I became a SU! Demonstrator!  I wanted the discount since I wanted it ALL!!

After heat setting the paper, it dried so nicely, I just looked at it to decide what to do with it!  Yes, I fly by the set of my pants……Is that the right expression?  Well, the green called me more even though I had sponged the Shimmery White with multiple colors (it was gorgeous!), but the Garden Green looked so striking!

Here is a picture of the finished card and you tell me if you think it is striking!


I know! Right!?  It made me want to let the Paper be the STAR!  Since it was leaves, I pulled out my Vintage Leaves Bundle.  The front has the Framelit and the inside has both the stamp and the framelit!  I am so astonished how beautiful this turned out!  I’m going to be honest again……….I’m ALWAYS surprised when I design something and it comes out this good!  Don’t get me wrong, I can CASE with the best of them, but my ‘ideas’ don’t always work out!  I bet there a quite a few of you who can relate!

Here is a picture of the inside!

I think it has the perfect amount of space to write in, since I never have enough to say to fill it up!  Now, WHO do I send it to?!

Here is a close-up of the leaves:

Don’t forget I have Blog Candy!  The drawing is coming up really fast!!  You can put in MULTIPLE comments for any of my posts AND you can go to my FaceBook Page and comment on there too!  So easy, and you get a great gift for FREE!!

This was a quick post today, hope you liked it!  I have a lot of classes coming up locally so send me a note if you want in on one of them! I finally have my subscription on my page fixed, so you can sign up to be notified when I post!  Hoping you will want to come back!

Making a Sunset

I LOVE sunsets, don’t you? I wanted to make one that was easy but still be stunning…….at least I think so, hopefully you do too!!

I have a video on YouTube walking you through this technique, I hope you check it out here. You can also shop for the products you see in this post and on my videos at my Online Store!

Making a Desert scene was my final one, I had to make FOUR cards with Sunsets! Just couldn’t help myself!

The first one is one I posted on my FaceBook page Let’s Stamp!

It features a lighthouse and this is where my Sunset journey started! I saw a video by Tina Zinck on making sunsets, so off I went!

This was so fun and easy (Thanks Tina!!) That I didn’t stop there! But first let me tell you what I used to make this card!

Stamps: High Tide #143006
Inks: Cherry Cobbler #126966, Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Perfect Plum #126963, So Saffron #126957, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Whisper White #101731, Momento Black #132708, Versamark #102283 and Sahara Sand #126976
Paper: Cherry Cobbler #119685 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White #100730 – 4″ X 5 1/4″
Misc: Project Life Corner Rounder #135346, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine #123125, 1″ circle punch #119868, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

Now, on to the next Sunset Card! This one uses the Lift Me Up Stamp set, but uses the same techniques as on my video.

I love how the Ocean/water came out on this one! This uses the same color palate as the card above. Here are the dimensions for the card stock, since everything else is the same:

Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Crushed Curry #131199 – 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″, Cherry Cobbler- 3 1/8″ X 4 3/4″, Whisper White – 3″ X 4 3/4″ and 2″ X 1 1/2″ (for the sentiment).
I also used Dazzling Diamonds #133751, and Fine Tip Glue to make the Dazzling Diamonds stick #138309

What else can I make with this Sunset? I just HAD to make more!! So I pulled out my Trusty set of Lovely as a Tree!!! Love this set!
Again, I used the same colors, just used the Stamp set Sending Thoughts #142965 from the Occasions Catty 2017 and I also used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration ribbon Metallic Gold #143601!

Here are those dimensions:
Elegant Eggplant #105126 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White 5 1/4″ X 4″
The Elegant Eggplant Ink # is 126969, Gold Embossing Powder #133457

And now for the Final Card, this is the one I made the video on!!

I had so much fun making this one!! Like I said at the Beginning, I LOVE sunsets, by this time you might just believe me! hahahaha

The supplies for this card are:

Stamps: Birthday Fiesta #141500, Thoughts and Prayers #127805, Here for You # 142164
Inks: Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Momento Black #132708, Night of Navy #126970, Black Marker
Paper: Night of Navy #100867 – 5 1/2″ X 4 1/2″ , Watermelon Wonder #138334 – 5 1/4″ X 4″, Whisper White #100730 5″ X 3 3/4″
Misc: Sponges #141337, Big Shot #143263, Up & Away thinlits #142748

If you love these colors together, make sure and stock up on Watermelon Wonder!! It’s one of the In Colors that is retiring this year 🙁 This is a GREAT color to make your sunsets with! The other reds are either too red, or too dark. It’s doable, but this one just makes it easy!

I hope you enjoyed all my Sunsets, and that you will want to visit me again! I will be making more videos, I am really enjoying it! Make sure you sign up on my YouTube page to be notified when I have another one coming out!

NC Demo Blog Hop – Progressing Christmas Page

If you just came from Pam’s page, welcome to my page! If you started at mine, click on the names below to see what others have done for the Holidays!  Enjoy!

Today I am showing you how I go about doing a Scrapbook Page by showing that you can make ANY size page depending what you like.  I started off making a 6 X 6 page:

6x6page

The red block is for putting your picture in.  I LOVE handmade scrapbook pages!  And the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Christmas Magic is one of my FAVES!  It’s so pretty and versatile!  I made tags too with the sets I used for this page, check it out at the end of this post!

For the next part of the page I made an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and placed the 6 x 6 on that one.

middlepage

The White under the Santa and next to the snowman is where You put the picture on this part!  I used the Santa from the Stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas.  This was so much fun to do! I stamped it on Vellum using Black ink and embossed it with clear.  I then turned it over and colored the back, making sure I shadowed it.  I put it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with my embossing tool from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool upside down (embossed side down) and rubbed the embossing tool over all the white pieces.  This raises the vellum and makes it white.  REALLY WHITE!  It is so much fun to do this technique and looks great on sails and other stamped images that need to be white and fluffy.

santainside

This is what it looks like before you turn it over.

santafinal

Once you turn it over you can really see the white is white!  I did NOT use ANY ink on the white parts, that is all because the vellum changes to white when you press on it with the embossing tool.

Now, here is the finished page on 12 x 12 :

beckypagedone

I die cut the ‘Merry’ from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits.  I also stamped the bells from the Christmas Magic stamp set and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder, then using my blender pen colored in Smoky Slate to ‘look like’ silver.  But first I stamped the Swirl from Star of Light and ‘hung’ my bells from that.

If you notice under the snowman, I have three bells on white bakers twine, this is so they won’t fall off (my daughter is going to frame this with her Christmas pictures on the wall), and I wanted to make sure that no matter what they wouldn’t fall off.  I made the white twine go through the paper and I tied a  knot in the back.

This page, in person, is so pretty!!  Have you ever made something and are impressed with how much better it came out than you thought it would when you started?!!   That’s how I feel, I hope you like it too!!

Now, here are the tags that I made to go along with this gift:

p1120035

I love the simple yet elegant feel of these!  Which is perfect for something that you will want to make a lot of!  I used the Scallop Tag Topper for all of these, the middle one is just a little bit shorter than the other two.

August Paper Pumpkin

August 2015 PP

I played with my Paper Pumpkin today!!  It was so much fun, I just went to the Pinterest Paper Pumpkin site after I did the handmade cards and box straight from the PP directions, I wanted to do some different ones, and this site helped me pick out what I wanted to do!

The SU! card in the middle uses the new Gold 3/8″ glitter ribbon #139614 from the Holiday Catalog (2015) .  I cut up one of the cards with the stripes so I could get more from that one sheet (since it is printed front and back, I can make a lot of cards by piecing it.)

I also paired the saying with the Metallic Foil Doilies #138392 behind it to make it POP!  Adding dimensionals underneath really made it stand out!

The card to the right of the middle I used the cut up piece (from the middle card) and layered it onto Gold Foil Sheets #132622, and used the ribbon from the kit I was inspired by one of the cards on the site listed above.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the 1/2 off deal that Stampin’ Up! is offering now until the 10th of September, you get TWO months for the price of one!!  Just go to PaperPumpkin.com site and sign up!  Just remember to put me down as your Demonstrator!
