Fun & Funny Stamping

Featuring Beautiful Balloons and Hey Chuck

Hey Guys, Fun & Funny Stamping is right up my Alley!! Of course I love to laugh (who doesn’t!?), so I made one of the cards super funny (at least to me). Every day I look in the mirror I SEE that I love to laugh! If you would like to join me on my Live and watch these cards being made, click here! As can be seen in this card Fun & Funny Stamping is the best!

Fun & Funny stamping, I used Wonderful Thoughts to make this funny.

Fun & Funny stamping – THIS is my FUN card

Who doesn’t love Frills!? The dies for this Balloon stamp set has Frills! Definitely, I wanted to show how you could look at the catalog and use the images to make something. Especially since the Stampin’ Up! catalog is FULL of ideas! Moreover I used the design for this card from the catalog, BUT the card in the catalog was a Slim Line card. So, I decided to use the design but make it different, so I could be me.

This is the FUN part of 'Fun & Funny stamping'

New Catalog is Now out!!

Surely, you know if you follow Stampin’ Up! at all that our new Catalog is now out! Of course as soon as I saw the Hey Chuck set I HAD to get it! Then I saw the Balloon set and when you put the Dies together with the set, it’s perfect! IF you like the Hey Chuck set and want to get a PDF of 16 card projects using NEW sets click here! Furthermore I added my Host code to that link, so you could get BOTH the stamp bundle and the PDF!

Finally

At this point, I’m sure you know what I’m going to say! Of course I am going to tell you that I appreciate you coming here and reading my post! The fact that you are here makes me so excited that you like what you see/read! Please come back next week when I will be having another video to share! YOU are the reason I do what I do, thank you!

Reflection Card

Using Rhino Ready

Hey Guys, I’m making a Reflection card today as well as a cool card using Heron Habitat over on YouTube! The Reflection card uses Rhino Ready the stamp set only sold OnLine. BOTH of these sets you just might want to get sooner rather than later. As far as Heron Habitat, the dies are already sold out and they aren’t coming back. Of course this means that this stamp set is retiring. As far as Rhino Ready goes, it is only available OnLine, so we don’t know how long it will be there.

Techniques & Fancy Folds!

Problem Solved!

Hey Guys!, today I have Techniques & Fancy Folds along with Solving problems! Have you ever tried to color something you already Embossed with Powders? For some reason the Blends don’t work with them. Of course, I still want to use my embossing powders and use Blends, so with my Stamparatus I have brought the two together perfectly! You can watch my video where I walk you through the steps.

Techniques, do you like them?

You may remember that I used to have a channel where every Tuesday I would do Two techniques. I called it Twosday’s Techniques and I posted on Vimeo (you can still find them there!). Well, I love techniques because using them gives more life to your stamping supplies. Anything that lets me come up with cool cards/scrapbook pages is in my wheel house. For todays video I am showing how to use two products that are like oil and water, but teaching you how to use them together.

Fancy Folds yay or nay?

I would love to know if you like Fancy Folds? Obviously I like them, but I don’t want to do them as often if YOU don’t! Sometimes I get bored with the cards folded the regular way, there is only so many ways you can change it up. After all there is landscape and portrait, that’s pretty much it! Of course the challenge is whether it fits in our envelopes, If I find a fancy fold that won’t fit in our envelopes, I tend to stear clear. What do you think? I’d love to know what you like.

Techniques & Fancy Folds!

Techniques & Fancy folds, of course this is a fancy fold!
Techniques & Fancy Folds, this is the technique card!

These cards are very fun to make, the first one I got the fold from Sue Campfield, and the other one I saw on Pinterest, both I designed myself, hope you love them as much as I do! Techniques & Fancy Folds are my jam!

You can get BOTH PDF’s by signing up for my Newsletter (upper right of post), each time I do a pdf I send it to my Newsletter people. Get ready to get a bunch of ideas!!

Last chance!

Sorry I was gone for a month

Some of you already know this but I went to DisneyWorld with my family last month! We spent 8 days with all my grandkids and all three of my daughters with 2 of their significant others. Every day was full of waking up before dawn, opening the park (rope drop anyone!?) and then trying to get all our rides that we ‘had to’ ride before it got too busy. Can I tell you that the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride is so awesome! I have a bad neck due to my accident when I broke my C2 vertebrae, so most roller coasters I worry will exacerbate my condition, but the Guardians ride was so smooth and fun! If they let us I’m sure we would have got right back in line!

As if that wasn’t enough, we also spent 4 days at Universal Studios, also opening the park! Let’s just say we left our ‘vacation’ more tired than we started! 🙂 All of us have decided that NEXT time, Universal will only be 1-2 days and being a Disney Family we still HAVE to spend a day at each park. BUT we will add in rest days so we can recoup and enjoy the resort.

Anyone here a Disney Fan? I moved to CA in 1969, grew up going to Disney. Then we moved all around the states and once we moved to NC we figured we could still be a Disney Family, but this time it would be Disney World. I LOVE Disney and feel my happiest when I am there, you?

That’s it for today!

I hope you enjoyed your visit! Please come back next week for my next round of cards/video. NOT sure if I will do a Live on YouTube or just upload a video. All depends on my time and schedule! Thank you so much for coming, I really appreciate you!

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!

NC Demo Blog Hop – Tree Bark Technique

It’s time for the NC Demo Blog Hop again!  If you didn’t attend last month, you won’t want to miss this month!

I LOVE doing techniques!  Today I have made two cards that use the Tree Bark technique!

I have made a Periscope, if you want to see how I made it, I think if you look me up on Twitter it will show you where to find it on Katch.me!  But for those who don’t have Periscope I will try and explain it with words!

You start off with either Soft Suede CS (2nd card) or with Sahara Sand (1st card).  You then stamp the Hardwood stamp using the color of your cardstock, I want it to be subtle so it looks more realistic.  I then rub direct to paper the Chocolate Chip ink pad VERY softly, using only the corner of the pad and only in a few places, I want that also to be subtle.

Then you will tear towards you an uneven amount of strips, 1st card has 5 and my 2nd has 3.  Make sure you tear TOWARDS yourself, so you have an uneven edge and it is able to be sponged and manipulated.  Then you will sponge the rough edges with the Chocolate Chip ink and then go over it again, with the same ink/sponge and sponge up, so the edge curls up.

You will do this to all your pieces…….this will make the edges stand up from the card.  Once you have that done, you will adhere your pieces so they match up with the edges standing up.  You can see this on both of my cards.

Once it is all adhered, you will want to LIGHTLY go over the raised edges with Versamark, then Gold Embossing Powder.  Heat it, and you will have this really pretty edge to each torn piece!

I used an In Color for the 1st card: Mint Macaron for the leaves and base, then embossed the flowers gold. The stamp set is: Number of Years.

The 2nd card uses Pool Party and the Stamp set: Pedal Pusher.  BOTH cards utilizes the Gold Foil Sheets since I wanted to bring out the Gold EP.

I really loved making these cards, and I would love to see if you make any using this technique!  Just share with me so everyone can see your pretty Tree Bark Cards!
