Two for Tuesday: Noble Peacock Suite …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you, two beautiful cards that were on the “Swap Boards” on the Stampin’ Up! Greek Isles Incentive trip created with the Noble Peacock product suite. I chose these two to share with you today because one features the stamped peacock and the other – the die cut peacock. Both cards include the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer  paper as well.

The card is embellished with two pieces of the stunning Noble Peacock Specialty Designer paper … one in Blueberry Bushel and one in Old Olive.  The beautiful peacock is die cut from the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets in Blueberry Bushel.

The greeting comes from the product suite / Royal Peacock Stamp Set and is die cut with the Layering Circle Framelits.

The second of the two has our peacock hand stamped …

The creator of this card did a beautiful job stamping and coloring the peacock. The greeting also comes from the stamp set that is included in the suite and / or bundle and is embellished with the Blueberry Bliss Foil paper.

As on the first card the background features the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer paper.  I wish I knew who the creators were for these cards, and truly sorry I did not participate in the swap!!

I do not have this suite yet, so that is one of the reasons I wanted to share these two cards … they were beautifully done and we all know that it so nice to see additional samples

Thank you for joining me today. I have a list of the ingredients for you below, and if you are in need of a demonstrator … I would be honored to be your creative coach.

Sneak Peak into the Holiday Catalog!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As you read my post today I will be heading into Santorini, however I have a couple of sneak peeks for you into the Holiday Catalog, or as Stampin’ Up! calls it … the Fall & Winter Catalog!  No matter what you call it, let me tell you that it is packed full of amazing product suites, bundles stamps, and accessories!

While you are going to bed or sleeping, this is the beautiful sunrise I (we are now 8 hours ahead of my hometown time) as I wrote out this blog post for you ….

Yesterday our morning started out with a nice breakfast overlooking the ocean and running into our table mates from last night! It’s so nice to really be able to build a friendship with other stamping professionals. You know we talk shop … or should be say STAMPING!! Next we were off to our General session where we saw demonstrations and new products.

The pictures didn’t turn out as nice because the screens are not as big as when we are at a Stampin’ Up! event, but here is one of our new products …

Beautiful bell images to stamp and die cut (equally as beautiful) in the BELLS ARE RINGING Bundle.  Speaking of bundles … look at the bundles of goodies we left General Session with …

Oh … Oh … there is the catalog, along with 2 brand new stamp sets, some really cool foil embellishments and wrapping paper!! Oh my gosh, I have so many ideas swirling around in my head! However, we still have a fairly new Annual Catalog, and I still have lots to show you there too. If you have your Wish List prepared ….

I also have an amazing offer to you while I’m gone. It’s a great way to put a little dent in your Wish List and cash in on some fabulous benefits designed for you.

A Simply Beautiful Card & My “Cat’s Away” Sale …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As you read my post today I will be heading to the airport to join my fellow demonstrators who achieved the Greek Isles Incentive trip. I am so grateful to all of you who have supported my stamping business. I want to share with you a beautiful card, and an amazing sale designed just for you.

Today… quick and easy cards are the focus because many of us are so busy these days, but will still need our creative time.  Have you ever had left over cardstock pieces from other projects (happens to me all the time)? Well, we can’t let that go to waste, can we? … Nope, we revise and make it a totally new card!

I used the left over pieces from my Magnolia Card Class to create this card.  To keep life simple and use up those left over pieces, I just added a pre-printed card from the Memories and More Card pack. This is a great card pack for scrapbookers, however, I use it all the time to make quick cards.  Check out the video to see what is in this card pack …

 

So what do you think about the Magnolia Lane card packs? Pretty great way to make quick -n- easy cards, and to create quick scrapbooking pages as well. 

NOW … I want to share a special offering I designed for you!

Using Scraps to Create Beautiful Cards ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a Happy 4th of July to you and your family. I hope you are out enjoying the festivities, if that is not your thing, I’m thrilled that you stopped here to visit me! I have a fun card created with the Garden Lane Designer Series paper. I find that designer papers are one of the quickest ways to create fun, beautiful cards and we have so many beautiful papers.

Todays card was created simply with some left over designer paper and scraps … those little pieces we don’t know what to do with but never throw away …lol.  A quilt makes a good pattern, today’s is simple – a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ Mint Macaroon base with 4 pieces of Garden Lane Designer paper measuring at 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ squares.

Adhere the small squares evenly onto the Mint Macaroon base. To add some texture to the card, I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center with the Mossy Meadow Bakers twine from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo pack behind it. Because I added the twine to the adhesive on the gem, you can either use Glue Dots or a small dimensional to adhere the gem to the card.  Don’t you love the dimension and the texture of this card ….

The base is Whisper White and cut horizontally to an 4-1/4″ by 11″ size where you will score and fold at 5-1/2″ (center). The front of the card base has a 4″ x 4″ coordinating piece of Garden Lane Designer paper that is mounted directly to the card base approximately 1/4″ from the top.  The quilt piece described above was mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add some additional dimension.

The greeting comes from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and is stamped in the Mint Macaroon. This is the perfect layout for any occasion … just change out the designer paper and the greeting!

Thanks again for joining me on this 4th of July … I’ve enjoyed your company!

Have a wonderful day and a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Bloom & Grow Bundle …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card samples & post direct from Stampin’ Up! Picture this: a tiny seedling on the verge of breaking through the soil. Can you see it? Now water it with affection and good vibes. What do you have after a little bit of time and a whole lot of love? A blossom—bold and beautiful and blooming!

Now imagine that in a stamp set. With the Bloom & Grow Bundle, you can see the entire story of the blossom: from tiny seedlings to beautiful bouquets. Then sprinkle in some encouraging sentiments, and you’ve got a card for everyone you love!

If you’re just beginning on your stamping journey, you can use these gorgeous stamps to create a patterned look for a simple but beautiful project as we did in our “You Are Simply Wonderful” sample, or if you want to step it up a notch, try tinkering with the dies and a blender pen, as we did in the “Thanks” sample.

For all of you avid stampers, roll up your sleeves and add this bundle and some ribbon to a treat bag to make the cute bag you can see in the samples. There are so many options! So go on, share these samples with customers, your friends, and everyone around you, so that you—just like the little seedling—can bloom and grow with just a few beautiful stamps, and a whole lot of love.

Thanks much for the visit, I hope you have an awesome day ~

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

Hello July … Hello Magnolia!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card from the Magnolia Lane suite and a few announcements that are turning up the heat this July!!  Yesterday I shared a simply beautiful card with the Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper and today we are going to step it up a bit. I also gave you a stampin’ tip on pre-cutting your cardstock! On this card my base was cut the long way to 4-1/4″ x 11″ … score at 5-1/2″ and then fold.

I cut my designer paper to a 4″ x 4″ square, the I adhered it to the front of the card.  Next I opened up the card and tucked it into my die cutter (BigShot) and using the edgelit in the dies package included in the suite, you’ll place the edgelit about 1/4″ away from the edge and cut. This makes the beautiful cut edge you see on card.

This edgelit leaves a bit of an ident in your cardstock, but I used it to align my ribbon (this is one of the two ribbons included in the Magnolia Lane product suite) to the front of my card.  I love this ribbon, it adds some lovely texture to the card.  I completed the card by adding a little “Hello” …. perfect to send when keeping in touch with a friend.

Today also kicks off Stampin’ Up!s Bonus Days Promotion …

For each $50 you spend before July 31 (before shipping and tax) you’ll earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be used August 1–31.  Don”t forget that with your $50 purchase … you will also earn a Virtual rewards point from me!! If your unfamiliar with my rewards CLICK HERE for Details 🙂
