New “Distinktive” design stamp set

Happy Wednesday, half way through the week. I’ve been rather busy since my last post, but now I’m back on track.  This past weekend by brother and his family were in town and staying with me. We had a ice/snow storm (luckily they arrive just before the ice started), shopped and eat a lot of good food – both out and made a home. One of the things we always do when they are home is go shopping at Kohl’s, here is a picture of Maya & Jake while we were shopping.

Today I thought I would share a card with you made with the first stamp set you see in the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Sale-a-bration bochure – Heartfelt Blooms (free with a $50 before tax/shipping purchase).

Heartfelt Blooms is designed with a new, patent-pending technique to create amazing depth on stamped images. This Distinktive* design lays ink at different opacities to create a photographic finish. It’s absolutely amazing. I’ve used glossy paper and the image is crystal clear – this is a must have stamp set!

I’ve added a Berry Burst mat and the new Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon for color.

PCC275 Big Sentiment Challenge

Happy Thursday, hope you are having a good week so far. I’m rather excited, tomorrow my brother and his family are coming to visit for the weekend from New Jersey. The last time they saw our dog Nitro he was 10 weeks old, now he is 2, as for Diesel – my nephew Jake saw him at 8 weeks and now he will see him at a year old, they will not believe just how big these guys are.

Today’s card is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge – Big Sentiment, banner is below.  Since this is Sale-a-Bration time the Happy Wishes stamp set seemed perfect to use as there are so many sentiment possibilities with this sit. It’s one of the new $100 Reward products. The set has 2 large words (Happy & Best) and 14 words to go with them.

New products used in making my card include:

  • Happy Wishes Stamp Set (wood or clear mount) – Sale-a-Bration $100 reward item
  • Tutti Fruitti Cards and Envelopes – Sale-a-Bration $50 reward item
  • Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper (card and envelope)
  • Petal Palette Bundle (Flowers in Calypso Coral and Peekaboo Peach

Card base has a Daffodil Delight print on it and the Whisper White has a Basic Black mat and designer series paper used for little banners and a focal image. The flowers that are part of the sentiment can be colored with a variety of products including Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blends or Watercolor Pencils. Large flowers where stamped in Basic Black and die cut with their matching die from the bundle. Finishing touches include a bow of linen thread and Clear Wink of Stella over the colored flowers. I used a piece of the same designer paper to over the outside of the envelope and stamped a flower on the front.

Don’t forget to stop over to the Paper Craft Crew Blog, check out the team design projects and play along!

Petal Passion Suite featuring Memories & More

Happy Monday, hope you had a good weekend, other than the extreme cold mine was enjoyable. While I did a little work for my daytime job (accounting manager and it’s year end) I was able to get a little crafting time in and prepare for a visit from my brother and his family next weekend!

Today I’m sharing something a little different, cards made from a Memories &  More package. Memories & More is coordinating packs of cards that make it easy to put projects together quickly. Card packs are perfect for cardmaking, memory keeping, or any other project you can dream up. During OnStage 2017 I preordered the entire Petal Passion Suite and wanted to make some quick cards and thought why not try the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack.

First here is the front of all cards:

The card on the left uses one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing folder, a couple cards, sticker and Whisper White Organza bow. For the card on the right, the birds are a smaller card that I used one of the Lots of Label Framelits to die cut them out.

For these cards, I took the ‘Hello’ large word die cut and used Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing powder to come up with a cool embellishment. Flowers on the card where colored with Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blend Markers. On the second card, the oval sentiment is a card that was die cut with a Layering Oval Framelit.

Since these cards were made on Basic Black Card bases, I thought using cards for the inside made it even easier to complete the cards, just add a handwritten note and you are done!

There are so many possibilities with these cards. Below are the Stampin’ Up! video’s for the Petal Passion Suite and Petal Passion Memories & More. I’ve included all products used in the cards below.

Magical Day !

Welcome to the first day of the new 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration. There are so many new beautiful products for all your paper crafting needs!

Today’s card features the stamp set I won as part of Prize Patrol at Onstage 2017 in Salt Lake City in November. When I saw the stamp set being demonstrated I commented on how it would make great cards for me to make and give to my cousins with little kids this Christmas, then they announced a Prize Patrol and picked my color as the winning group, I was so excited.  The first thing I did, when as a demonstrator I could preorder from the new 2018 Occasions catalog, was to order all the products from the Myths and Magic Suite where you lose yourself in the glittery world of mythical creatures and magical creations!

This suite includes:

  • Magical Day Bundle – Magical Day Stamp set with matching Magical Mates Framelits Dies
  • Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape
  • Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (2 each of 6 double sided designs)
  • Myths & Magic 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper (8 of 3 colors – Iridescent, Light Green & Turquoise)

For my card I started by stamping the mermaids in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White card stock since I wanted to use my Watercolor Pencils to color them. Once colored, using the matching framelit, Magnetic Platform and Big Shot die cut it out. Greeting was stamped in Berry Burst ink and die cut with Stitched Shaped Framelit Oval Die and used the Layering Scallop Oval and the Light Green Glimmer paper to create a mat. The card has a Whisper White base, Berry Burst Mat and piece of the new Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.

In case you are new to Stampin’ Up! and the annual Sale-a-Bration event, it’s an opportunity to shop both the 2018 Occasions and Annual Catalog and for every $50 spent (before tax & shipping) you can earn FREE products from the SAB Brochure.

Welcome to 2018 !

Happy New Year, Welcome to 2018 ! ! !

Did you spend the night partying or a nice quiet evening at home?  We opted for a quiet night at home after a hosting a Christmas celebration with my husbands family and some friends Saturday night.  Looking forward to our New Years day meal of pork, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and baked beans.

To celebrate the new year I’ve made an eclipse card, using the Large Number Framelits with Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper (while supply lasts), Silver Foil sheet and Dapper Denim card stock and ink.  Greetings are from the Thoughtful Banner Stamp set.  Foam Adhesive strips are prefect to back the numbers for added height when making eclipse cards.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try stamping.
