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

Petal Palette meets Berry Burst!

Hi Friends,

Both the Petal Palette stamp set and Berry Burst In Color are retiring  ( by June 3rd or until supplies last)

So I decided to create a card using this stamp set (one of my all time favorites!) —and Berry Burst ink!

This is incredibly easy to make!

I stamped the leave with Lemon-Lime Twist ink ( another retiring In Color) and the flowers with berry Burst.

Next I stamped three flowers on scrap paper then using the Big Shot, I cut them out ( Petals & More Thinlits–also retiring)

Popped them up with Dimensionals and of course I HAD to ‘bathe’ them with Wink of Stella!

And for just a bit of extra excitement, I put a Perl in the center of the popped up flowers.

What do YOU think?

Of course no card leaving my house has a naked envelope–so a bit more stamping and voila!

All done! Can’t you imagine this card for almost any occasion?

So friends, this set and Thinlits  are retiring as are all the 2017-2019 In Colors.

Get yours before they are gone!

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! Thinking of You card

Hi Friends,

This week I’m in Orlando for our 30 year Stampin’ Up! Celebration convention!

One of the FUN things we do is create cards to swap with other Demonstrators ( over 5000 of us!!!)

This is one Swap card I designed.

I used Gray Granite as the base –such a subtle color –I LOVE it!

The next layer is Coastal Cabana embossed with the Layering Leaves Folder.

Then I took a piece of the Silver Foil card stock and layered Frosted Floral DSP on top of that.

Those papers are soooooo beautiful–one side has a muted shimmery appearance to it. GORGEOUS!

The Silver Foil paper makes the designer paper really POP!

SO I swapped these with my house mates  and I’ll show you what I received in return when I’m back in Massachusetts.

I’m SURE I’ll have some gorgeous cards to share with all of you!

Petal Promenade DSP and Fresh Fig Paper!

Hi Friends,

I LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series paper.

The colors are soft and romantic and really have such versatility!

Petal Promenade Designer Series and Fresh Fig Card pare make this a simpple yet elegant card. I also used the Foil-Edged rads and Envelopes in SIlver.

See how beautiful that paper is! There are 4 sheets with trimmable elements–just like the one I used.

For a bit of contrast, I used the Galvanized Metallic paper to border the DSP. Then I added the message and layered it using Layering Ovals Framelits . A little Fresh Fig Shear ribbon for a pop of interest.

I did emboss the Fresh Fig card stock using the Layered Leaves Folder.

What do you think?

The base was made with Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4–scored at 4 1/4″.

The next layer is Fresh Fig cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and embossed.

Then the DSP was cut at 3″ square and layered onto a piece of the Galvanized Metallic paper (cut 3 1/4″ square), using Snail Adhesive.

That layer was attached using Dimensionals

Then the message was stamped and pushed through the Big Shot using layering Ovals.

I did the same with a piece of Fresh Fig to back the white layer.

Lastly I cut a piece of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon and attached to the back of the oval.

I can NOT say enough about how much I LOVE the Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes! They come in either gold or silver and add such a degree of elegance, in my humble opinion!

They are so easy to use and certainly lend a air of elegance to any card you make!

Happiness Surrounds and COLOR!

Hi Friends,

I made this card for my trip to Idaho.

I’ll be needing ‘thank you’s’ so this was a fast and easy way to create some simple yet sweet cards.

Happiness Surrounds and COLOR!

I am IN LOVE with Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite colors .

So the base is Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.

Next is a layer of Blackberry Bliss at 5 1/4 x 4.

Then a layer of Frosted Floral Dsp at 5 x 3 3/4.

Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I cut a larger oval in Blackberry Bliss, a next sized smaller in Whisper White.

I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set images and Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive inks to create a flower image.

Snailed the  white layer onto the blackberry layer then popped a few Dimensionals on and placed it on the card.

I added a thank you from All Things Thanks –and voila –card is done!

Not to leave out the envelope (no naked envelopes in my house!) – added the leaves in Old Olive.
