I am so excited that as a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, that I get to purchase NEW items a month before they are available to the public! I wanted to use them right away BUT didn’t necessarily want to do Christmas. So, my dilemma……….how do I use these obvious Christmas sets and NOT have it be Christmas.
I got out the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, decided to use the tree AND the incredible fence!! Did you see the fence!!?? I stamped the tree on Soft Suede using Early Espresso ink. This stamp set better stick around because I can use that fence for a lot of things! Follow this link to see my video.
Isn’t it the cutest!!?? Not sure if you can see the Glitter snow in front of the fence, but in person it is very shiny and sparkly! The tree has snow in all its crannies. I used the Fine-Tip Glue pen to go over the white (used the chalk marker) and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over the wet glue. I forgot how much I LOVE Dazzling Diamonds! I will be getting that out a lot more.
I stamped the ‘Love You’ from the Enjoy Life stamp set using Versamark and white embossing powder.
I layered these onto a piece of Early Espresso, but before I layered these onto white I wrapped some Burlap Ribbon around and adhered a True Gentleman button in the middle. If you look closely you can see a Rhinestone that I colored with the Bronze Blend to go into the middle of the button (I HATE threading linen thread through those tiny holes!). The final layer is Soft Suede to tie in all the colors.

Today I TRIED to do a Facebook Live, and it came out ok, but I REALLY need to practice more! hahahaha
I wanted to share with you today TWO/Three NEW sets from SU! that is coming out in June! The reason I say Two/Three is because I am showcasing a set that has a Thinlit that works with it. Not sure you would say they are separate sets, but they could be used apart.
The one I am sooooo excited about it Eastern Beauty and Eastern Medallions! This set is so Versatile! You can use the stamp set to make ALL kinds of great designs! I have to still work on seeing what it does, so for now I will be sharing the card I made using the Eastern Medallion thinlits and a few of the stamps!!
Here is the card:
VERY pretty colors, right? This is made with a lot of the framelits. The cool thing is that you can mix and match them! The one on the card that has the popped up part, is usually solid in the middle. I used one of the other thinlits and placed it in the middle and made it so you can see through it! Here is a sheet showing the one still attached to the cardstock and the other framelits in the set:
If you want to cut out an image to either put in the center. or cut out a center, you can see this piece leaves just the cutouts that you see:
OR if you want to cut out the image, use the smallest circle from the Layering Circles #141705 and t cuts it out perfectly!
Doesn’t Stampin’ Up! think of everything! 🙂
I started with a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Watercolor Paper and placed a lot of the Thinlits on the Watercolor paper, then added to them, to get the look I wanted. I then got my Aqua Painter and colored some of the new pretty In Colors on the top of the Water Color Paper, making it as bright and pretty as I could!
I used Wink of Stella to make the paper sparkle and then popped up the piece in the center left by making the edges pull up (the piece doesn’t pop out all the way, just the petal edges). I placed Dimensionals on the bottom of the entire Piece of Paper and then placed it on 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ piece of Copper Foil. It looks so pretty in person, with the copper peeking out!
I stamped the saying from Eastern Beauty “enjoy today” on the right center and then used clear Embossing powder on it to make it more textural (I LOVE that our inks are wet enough to do this!!)
I used the brand new Glitter Enamel Dots that I got from attending OnStage in Savannah GA!! If you are a demonstrator one of the MANY perks is that you get to see product before anyone else! AND if you attend OnStage (which is all over the world!) you can pre-buy certain product before other demos that didn’t attend! Of course I HAVE to go, so I can see/touch and order new goodies……as I’ve said MULTIPLE times, I am NOT a patient person! LOL
For the added touch before putting it onto the Berry Burst Cardstock I wrapped some Copper Thread so it peeks out of the side of the lifted petal and goes around the sentiment!
Here is the inside of the card!
Again, I used the stamps from the Eastern Beauty to adorn the inside! Well? Do you like it?
On my Facebook Live Video New Sneak Peek Stamp sets I also showed another card. I showed how this one was made, so I will show you the picture and if you want to see it made, go see the video…..just ignore how silly I look/sound/act……..this is what happens when you are not super experienced at it! HAHAHAHA
I won’t show you the one I tried to make better on the video, because in the long run, I liked this one better!
Here is the inside:
I really love the Copper on the Designer Series Paper (DSP), don’t you?! And the leaf in Copper looks so pretty on the inside!
