July 2020 Stampin Friends -!

Hi Friends,

Thanks so much for clicking on my link. I hope you enjoy these projects!

This card is a tweaked version of one I saw in Pinterest.

I love how EASY and fast this was to make.

The base is a piece of Night of Navy card stock.

The next layer is a piece of Crushed Curry and THEN I used the new Ornate Floral Embossing folder on the Whisper White layer.

I LOVE how tiny and cute those flowers are –and I think it gives a subtle yet interesting look to the card. What do YOU think?

Next I took the NEW Rectangular Postage punch and Playing With Patterns DSP and cut out two from the paper and two from Night of Navy cards stock.

I also used the NEW Greenery Embossing Folders on the Night of Navy papers.

I attached all layers with the NEW Stampin Seal and the postage cutouts with Dimensionals. I cut out the message with Layering Circles dies and added one of the NEW InColor Enamel dots and voila!

Here’s a simple and easy 3D favor!

l

I used our Clear Tiny cello boxes and simply added the same DSP as in the card. It was fast and easy to do!

I then used  a stamp from Parcels & Petals as well as a matching die for the tag. Used a bit of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine and an InColor Enamel dot -and VOILA!

Now I bet you wonder what you can put inside this tiny box!

Well here are a few items I’ve used in the past –OF COURSE chocolate is ALWAYS an option!

                                                      Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Incredible Like You stamp set!

Hi Friends,

Incredible Like You is a stamp set I learned to LOVE!

When I first saw the Project Kit, I knew I had to do a class –simply because those cards are so BEAUTIFUL!

But then I started seeing how other Demonstrators created different images and I was HOOKED!

Here is one I love love love!

It was created by Demonstrator, Lori Pinto. I did tweaked mine just a bit but the inspiration came from Lori’s beautiful card.

Incredible Like You

It can be used for most occasions and my intention is for a special friend—just a note…

I used Pear Pizzazz, Highland Heather and Whisper White cards stock and matching inks.

Of course had to use Wink of Stella to add just a pop of shine to the flowers. Two little Enamel Dots and voila!

The fonts in the messages are whimsical and “happy.” ( Have I told you I am enamored with artists who design fonts? Taking a pen and coming up with twists and depth to create letters and numbers fascinate me!)

What do you think?

This stamp set is available from the Occasions catalog until June 3rd.

It is NOT carrying over to the new Annual catalog, so if you want it , please order NOW

Frosted Floral DSP meets Hanging Garden

Hi Friends,

Today I want to show you how easy a few card techniques can be used to  make a very pretty Stampin’ Up! card!

First I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock as my base.

Next I took a piece of Crumb Cake ( 1/4′ smaller by length and width of the base) and stamped, in Early Expresso ink,  the words “Thank You Kindly” from the Hanging Garden stamp set.

NEXT –magic with the Subtles Embossing Folder!I ( one of MY NEW FAVORITES!)

Take a look at the ‘subtle’ yet textured look of that layer.

Can you see the fine lines? Makes me think of fine wale corduroy.

Next I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and used the Layering Squares Framelits, with my Big Shot,  cut 3 squares.

Then I took a piece of the Frosted Floral DSP ( LOVE the colors and the fine shimmer!!!) and made 3 smaller squares.

Of course I used Snail to adhere all 3 pieces of DSP to the card stock.

Then I arranged the squares on the embossed layer.

To add just a bit of interest, I used 3 enamel shapes in the lower right hand corner.

There you have it…3 easy techniques:
1. Using the Subtles Embossing Folder

2. Using the Layering Squares Framelits

3. Adding a few embellishments.

Three simple ways to make a card –make it YOUR own and send it with love!

You could make a boxed set of these for a gift!

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Tags

Hi Friends,

The elves are surely BUSY!

What fun we had last Monday making a few Christmas tags.

Talk about easy, fast and FUN!

We used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Signs of Santa.

The elves are adorable so after we stamped them with Staz-ON ink, we colored them using the Many Marvelous Markers.

Cute cute CUTE!

Of course I had to use Wink of Stella for a bit of pop!

The base of the tag was a piece of Poppy Parade and Garden Green cards stock. I cut them to 4″ x 2″.

To make the cut out for the ribbon, I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

Then I used the Tags & Tidings stamp set with the Christmas Tag Thinlits. This allowed me to have a LOT of options for the little tag at the top.

There are 16 images on that stamp. I inked it up with Memento ink -then cut them out with the matching Christmas Tag Thinlit.

It was EASY and fast!

A little piece of the Santa’s Workshop Specialty DSP layerd on top of the card stock…. then popped the little elf ( and Mrs. Claus) on with a Dimensional.

Next I used a few Red Rhinestone Jewels to give a bit of sparkle…

About 12″ of Garden Green and White Baker’s Twine to use as ties and voila!

I just think they are adorable and certainly will add a bit of festive pizzazz to any package!

What do YOU think?

 

We’ll be making more cute tags as the days approach!

Would love to have YOU come to one of my classes!
