CC02 Stampin' Up! French Foliage

4.30.2013

This clean and simple sketch is the second from Chic Challenges and was shared earlier this month. Clean and simple is perfect for when you just want to create without a lot of fuss and this sketch really delivered. With just neutral card stock and other simple ingredients, I was able to relax and put together a card I'll be happy to send to just about anyone.


Stamped images from Collage Curios and French Foliage replace where the side panel is drawn on the sketch. The sentiment was stamped onto the die cut along with a few more of the same images from the card front. A little bit of sponging along the edges and Stampin' Dimensionals help it to stand out a little from the background. The linen thread embellishes with an organic touch but without making the card too gender specific. And that's it - a quick card to let someone know they're on my mind. :)

Stampin' Up! Print Poetry meets Pretty Postage

4.29.2013

As we reach the end of both our Annual Catalog and our Spring catalog, I'm realizing there are quite a few things I still want to play with before I start concentrating on the "new". For example, I still have a few sheets of our Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The sheets are sized perfectly for card making, so why not pair one with a stamp set that needs to see more ink?


Our Pretty Postage stamp set and coordinating Postage Stamp punch made it easy to create a fun little birthday card. Three cakes are Gumball Green (shown in the scrollwork of the paper, too). The Raspberry Ripple cake shows the sentiment included on the stamp; I dressed it up with a little punched flower... which is about as close as I get to cake decorating in real life. But that's okay, I know where I can purchase pretty and tasty cakes. I'll stick to inking up stamps ;)

Stampin' Up! Collage Curios Trust God

4.26.2013

Our nation has undergone some horrific events lately. In the midst of it all, I've been inspired by the sight of so many people jumping in to help strangers and neighbors in times of need. Even when it was scary to do so. Thinking about this, I was drawn to a sentiment in our Trust God stamp set which  shares a good reminder by the Reverend Billy Graham: "God has given us two hands - one to receive with and the other to give with."

Stampin' Up! Pennant Parade Quick Card

4.25.2013

There are three triangular images in our Pennant Parade stamp set that make great little flags and trees. But this week, I was looking through a recent Paper Crafts magazine and saw a card by Agnieszka Malyszek that used triangles to create a simple but lively background. What a quick but fun way to create a card!


With a little extra time on your hands, I recommend using a Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect alignment of the triangles. For more information on this tool, scroll down to Tuesday's post containing step-by-step information. Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin' Up! Sassy Summer Salutations Quick Card

4.23.2013

Just one more day until our retirement list is posted but first - as promised - here's another quick card idea! 

Need a quick card to say Hello or Congrats? Grab your favorite colors, a border stamp, one image stamp and a sentiment and you can make this one in just a few easy steps.


You can eye-ball the placement of your images, but I definitely recommend using a Stamp-a-ma-jig (shown below) for even placement. For example, the border image running along the bottom of the card is not as wide as the card. The SAMJ made it easy to stamp it straight in the first place and line up a second image so that it looks like one seamless strip. I also used it to place the circles and sentiment exactly where I wanted them.

If this is a new tool for you, here are some pictures from our company site showing how to use it. This same information is also shown on page 37 of our 2012-2013 Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Oh, Hello Quick Card

4.22.2013

I have a thing for quick cards this week. We're nearing the end of the school year and my brain is not quite engaging with "today" but with events scheduled tomorrow, next week, this summer and - oh my gosh… is my baby really headed for high school next fall? But who said you have to create complicated to make something worth sending, anyway?! So, in the spirit of quick, here's the first of several quick cards. Be sure to check back this week for at least two more ideas :)


Isn't this fun? Just one stamp used repeatedly and with colors from the same color family. Easy, peasy but oh, so cute! 

*Tip: use a tiny hole punch on the edges of the card stock to keep the Linen Thread from slipping up or down the card.

Freshly Made Sketches released another great sketch this week. I depended heavily on Designer Series Paper to follow the sketch, then pulled out some scraps of paper and embellishments to finish it off.

US207 Epic Day This and That Scrapbook Page

4.20.2013

Wow, SarahKaye has given us a really neat sketch this week! If it seems intimidating at first glance, just note that you have the main square in the middle backed by a smaller square in each corner and 2 rectangle layers on each side.

I thought it was the perfect layout for creating scrapbook page using some of those pictures. You know the ones where you just could not get an uncluttered shot. In this case, there were so many people around that it was impossible to get photos without something distracting in the background. Every single photo required trimming or altering in some way.


Between the sketch and supplies in our new Epic Day bundle, this page was so much fun to put together. The Designer Papers, stickers and Washi tape worked well with this fun sketch helping me to decorate and also work with some really busy pictures. For example, see the pointy finger in the middle (pointing at my husband)? Well, there was a guy back there making the strangest faces. Who knows what he was saying, lol.  I thought it might be better to draw some attention to the graduate instead :)

To see more ideas using this week's sketch, please be sure to visit the Unscripted Sketches site. The Design Team provides a variety of projects each week; you're sure to find an idea you can use!

Stampin' Up! Bordering on Romance

4.17.2013

The flowers in our Bordering on Romance stamp set are incredibly versatile. They can be stamped and made a focal point but are also beautiful in the background. Recently while looking through a copy of Paper Crafts Magazine, I ran across a card that showed white embossed flowers on pastel card stock. Such a sweet look - I knew I had to give it a try!

 

The same floral image is used to create both the background and the focal point. Simple coloring, a corner punch and a heartfelt sentiment help to finish off the card. Of course, I couldn't resist adding the super-easy-to-use Jewels Basic Pearls for added detail. By the way, I labeled this as a "quick card" even though it involves embossing and coloring. It really did go quickly!

Card inspired by one created by Heidi Van Laar (shared in Paper Crafts magazine)

Stampin' Up! Epic Day This and That

4.17.2013

Have you seen the new Epic Day This and That Bundle? Oh my - this kit is SO fun! I had one plan when I opened the kit, but that flew out the window as soon as I started opening up the individual pieces.

 I can now tell you three things with certainty:

  • I understand why crafty people are going gaga over washi tape. 
  • Every scrapbook page this year will probably end up date stamped with this uber cute Rotary Stamp. You will likely see it on a few cards, too.
  • My small purses will be relegated to the back of the closet. This book needs to be with me so I can fill it with ideas and random thoughts… and play with the stickers. 

Want to see what I'm talking about? Well, here's a peek at my first page (so far) as I was working on next Saturday's Unscripted Sketches project.

You can see one of the sticker sheets, two of the rolls of washi tape and even some of the Designer Series Paper. And my guys - aren't they cute?

And here's a little snippet of said Unscripted project. I used some of these same supplies on a scrapbook page. Come back Saturday for the sketch and the whole page :)

Stampin' Up! Bordering on Romance

4.13.2013

Here's a fun sketch to kick off your morning. It's from CAS(E) this Sketch and it looks perfect for making a batch of cards, doesn't it? The diagonal strips could be strips of paper, perhaps some embossed lines or - better yet, some stamps!


Here a border stamp from Bordering on Romance helps to create the diagonal lines of the sketch. It was an easy process using the lines on our Clear Block Guides.

If you would like to give it a try, here's how it works. First, stamp your first row of flowers. Then, ink up again and align the block so that the solid line on the guide goes through the center of the flowers in the previously stamped row. (I was using the 2nd horizontal line from the top; we snapped the picture just before I had it lined up, but I think you get the idea…)



The guides make it so easy to line up your stamps. I was able to make 4 cards very quickly using this sketch and only basic supplies. Fun and just the break I craved in the middle of a busy weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

technology can be quirky

4.12.2013

Earlier today I sent out a message regarding a change in the delivery of blog posts to my readers. At the time, I thought you would need to re-subscribe to the blog with the new service. Well, technology is smarter than I am (shoulda known…) and it looks like you will NOT need to take that extra step.

However, I have not deleted the subscriptions from Feedburner in case the new service (MailChimp) has issues SO - if you receive 2 copies of my posts, then please scroll down to the bottom of the one from Feedburner and click UNSUBSCRIBE. This will remove your name from the list.

I sincerely apologize for the confusion. Ack - technology. I think I'll go make a card instead.

Introducing Stampin' Up! Bombs Away Birthday

4.10.2013


We have a new clear (photopolymer) set to share with you today. It's a fun hearted set that sure to be fun to use when creating cards and gifts for the adults in your life!

Bombs Away Birthday (133411)



 This last sample made me laugh. I still have a few of my porcelain dolls from childhood and keep them on a high shelf in my office. My husband and boys think the dolls are creepy; they say the eyes STARE at them whenever they enter my office. LOL Well, that's okay… they probably don't need to be in here anyway ;)

Stampin' Up! Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack

4.08.2013

My stampin' friend Yapha brought a fun sketch challenge to my attention. It's called Seize the Birthday and they share a sketch for two weeks. During the first week, they invite you to share feminine cards based on the sketch; then on the second week, you use the same sketch to create a masculine card. Here's the latest and since it's week one, feminine is the way to go.


Even knowing I needed to make a girly card, I still grabbed Midnight Muse card stock and this sheet of Designer Series paper from our Print Poetry Stack. Why? I don't know!! But by pulling out some girly border decor, rhinestones and a now retired Bubble Queen I was able to turn it around and meet the challenge! Who said girly stuff can't be blue? I think this would make a great birthday card with a spa gift certificate stuffed inside :)

4.07.2013


Thanks for joining us today! Whether you've just arrived from Heidi's blog or you are starting out here - welcome to the blog hop! Today we are sharing projects created using Stampin' Up!'s retiring colors including 10 core colors (shown in the banner above) and Lucky Limeade (a 2011-2013 In-Color). I'm sharing a greeting cards created using Certainly Celery products. This soft green has been a core color in the Subtles group for many years and has been used for many a baby or spring themed card.

First, let me share a CAS (clean and simple) card created using one of my favorite stamp sets, Summer Silhouettes. Certainly Celery has always been a nice color for new leaves...

Stamps: Friendly Phrases, Summer Silhouette
Colors: Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Marina Mist, Whisper White

Next, here's another quick but more formal card created using another retiring item - Watercolor Crayons. This image was stamped onto watercolor paper using StazOn and color was applied with an AquaPainter.

Stamps: Fabulous Phrases, Natures Pace
Colors: Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum
Tools: Small Oval Punch, Scallop die cut

And just one more card, this time to show how nicely this color works with Soft Suede. Also shown are Subtles brads which will also retire due to the Color Refresh.

Stamps: Collage Curios, From My Heart
Colors: Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette
Tools: Ovals Collection Framelits, Fancy Fan TIEF, 1" circle and 1-1/4" scallop circle punches
See... it didn't have to be just for babies or spring! ;)

Note: I've mentioned a couple here, but just a reminder that all products containing these retired colors are going bye-bye; this includes ink and re-fills, card stock, ribbon, patterned paper, etc. Take advantage of FREE shipping this weekend and get these retiring goodies before they're gone.

How to make a matchbook card

4.05.2013

In class today, we are working on a fun-fold style card - a Matchbook card. Although there are several patterns on-line and in different forums, our card was based on notes provided by Studio Calico. The finished size is about 4-1/2" x 3-1/4". It's a cute size for sending a greeting to someone in a standard envelope, but the inside pocket holds a gift card perfectly, too!


Check out the inside:


To create the matchbook card:

Matchbook cover:

  • Begin with a piece of card stock measuring 3 1/4" x 8-7/8"
  • Score at 3/4", 4-3/4" and 5"
  • Fold along score lines and press with a bone folder to secure

Inside pocket:

  • Begin with card stock or Designer Series Paper measuring 4" x 5-3/4"
  • Score at 1-1/2"and 4-1/4"
  • Fold and secure where the edges overlap
  • Using a circle punch, punch half of the circle along the top to make it easier to remove the note insert/gift card.
  • Place in the cover and staple along the bottom (close to the crease) to secure.
  • Optional: adhere a strip of card stock or patterned paper over the bottom strip of the matchbook case to cover the staples. (In the sample, I used a strip of Cherry Cobbler card stock.)

If you are in the Melbourne (Florida) area and would like information about upcoming Friday morning classes, contact me via e-mail. All invites go out via e-mail on the Monday prior to class. I am also scheduling workshops for May and June where hostesses can take advantage of retiring items promotions and the new catalog release. It's a great time to host!

Stamps: Four Frames, Fabulous Phrases, Collage Curios (offered in our Spring 2013 catalog)
Colors: Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla

Stampin' Up! Color Refresh, Free Shipping and More!

4.04.2013

Great information to share with you today! There are changes afoot; be sure to read all the way through so you don't miss anything!

FREE SHIPPING on all orders Saturday, April 6th through Monday, April 8th, 2013. Yes, FREE! Order as little or as much as you want. It's a great time to get some retiring items before they are gone. Which retiring items? Well - these:

Stampin' Up! is refreshing our color palette. Some previous In-Colors will be returning, one new color will be introduced and several of our core colors are going bye-bye. We will still have four color groups with 10 colors each, but they will look like this:


Woo-hoo! The new color palettes are fabulous! Each color group contains a red, a blue, a yellow and a green and we will now offer a lighter gray for when Basic Gray is just too bold. This is exciting news - wait until you see the colors together! But that means we need to make some room in the warehouse, so effective immediately we are discontinuing all items in the retiring colors. That means ink pads, markers, ink refills, ribbon, any and all accessories with the retiring colors have got to go. Get 'em before they're gone!

Watercolor Pencils and Watercolor Crayons are retiring. The manufacturer has been forced to make some changes and Stampin' Up! has decided to drop these lines of coloring products. We are already out of the Watercolor Pencils and of the Brights collection of Crayons but you can still purchase  Watercolor Crayons in the following collections:

  • Subtles (119802)
  • Neutrals (119805)
  • Regals (119803)

Stampin' Up! Up, Up & Away

4.03.2013

It's almost time to begin the transition to our 2013-2014 catalog. Stampin' Up! announced today that we will receive notice regarding retiring items on April 24th - that's early. If you are like me and still have a number of stamp sets on your wish list, you may be wondering how you're going to get what you really want in time and without breaking the bank. One solution for me has been to purchase a few stamp sets as digital downloads. They have a smaller sticker price which allows the budget to go further :)

One of those wish list sets Up Up & Away is a lot of fun to use on My Digital Studio because you can resize the balloons. Plus, creating a sheet's worth of images to create multiple cards or other paper projects is quick and easy.



The card front and tag shown here were created as a "hybrid". The balloons, birds and clouds are digital printed images but were used to create a multilayered card. As much as I love the versatility of MDS, I love the dimension of hand-made cards - I think that it truly sets them apart from most store-bought cards. Don't the balloons look adorable with the embossed clouds in the background?

Stamps: Up, Up, & Away, Itty Bitty Banners
Colors: Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Stampin' Up! Little Friends

4.01.2013

A sketch challenge on Splitcoast caught my eye recently. I like that the sketch gives you room for a large image and has fun little banners hanging down underneath. Here is the sketch brought to life using our adorable Little Friends stamp set. 


The style of the image will probably work well with more neutral colors, but the puppy and the banners (on the sketch) called for something more lively. That's the fun thing about our supplies isn't it? You can make something totally unique depending on what moves and inspires you!
