Saying Good-bye to Old Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m just compiling a few of my favorite stamps -n- dies that are retiring in a showcase for you. I’m going to miss some of these, but I am excited to start sharing some of the new items coming out when the new catalog goes Live June 3rd!!  Grab a cup of coffee (or wine … depending on when your viewing) and join me on this journey ❤

I’d like to start with my favorite Halloween set … Spooktacular Bash.  This is a “Fun Fold” card that we made in our Stamp Club this year!  Watch as it opens into a display of “fun” …

Spooktacular Bash Bundle 153040

Here are a few more projects from that bundle …

If I’m correct … The “Monster Bash Designer paper (150447) is currently ON SALE for ONLY $4.60! It appears that the stamp set has already sold out, but if you look closely … I only used it for the greeting. Yikes! However … the Coffin Boxes are available and for only $2.80

If you love Halloween like I do … Now is the perfect time to pick up these goodies at an AMAZING Discount!!  Heck, while your laying low during the Covid outbreak … you can have this all planned out.

Next on my list is the DINOROAR … Why is it going 😦  I’m so sad, this is such a cute bundle!

Should we get serious now? lol  Let’s talk flowers … perfect since we are in “planting” season right now.  How about we start with the amazing Beautiful Promenade ….

Or how about the Love What You Do stamp set …

The Embellishment Kit which has the pretty tags and embellishments you see on the cards included in the pretty gift box and the Pearlized Doilies are both on sale now!!

One of my All-Time favorite stamp sets and a big hit on Pinterest; Flourishing Phrases ….

Love, love, love this stamp set and dies … and the greetings are awesome for all occasions!  I don’t see many “Just a Note” anymore unless it has musical notes around it. Which is fine sometimes, but sometimes, I like to send “just a note” to a friend to let them know I’m thinking about them.

I’m going to stop here, because if I start on Christmas … I’ll have you here for hours! 😉  I hope you enjoyed sitting with me and looking through a few of the retiring items (my favorites). I’ll have a list below of the items shown here today.

Thank you for joining me! Enjoy the holiday weekend.

STAMPING SUPPLY LIST ….You’ll see the beautiful Glimmer paper on some of my cards … just a “heads up” that all of the Glimmer Papers are retiring! Sparkle, Gold, Silver … yup, they are all on the discontinued list.

 

 

 

 

 

Accented Blooms: Thinking of You

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some fun cards / project created with the Accented Blooms stamp set … one that now sits on the retiring list.  You can create big messages with a few words and some beautiful imagery to highlight it.  These stamps have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.

The greetings used on the cards today are two that are so fitting for me right now; Always Thinking of You and Thank You!  Here is the card that I created …

I used the Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends duos. I also used the Color Lifter … that little tool works awesome put pull some color off like I did in the large flower. One of the benefits of using the Stampin’ Blends is that I could tone down the brightness of the Daffodil Delight by blending with a touch of the Soft Suede.

Another tool I used while creating this card is the Stamparatus … I knew I would be making several of these cards so I wanted to ensure I got my greeting positioned properly each time. You could however stamp the greeting and then punch it out with the coordinating punch and pop it up, that would also give you additional dimension.

This card was created by the Stampin’ Up! home office and is featured in the catalog …

The card uses watercoloring to add color to the flowers, and the greeting images is stamped and punched out with the coordinating Tailored Tag punch.  The punched greeting and die cut florals behind the stamped image adds so much dimension and texture to the card.

Are you ready for a sweet little treat? …  Love you too!!

The precious little gift used the Clear Tiny treat boxes (pg.173) and a simple banner folded over the treat box.  The banner is stamped with the element images included in the Accented Blooms stamp set.  And our greeting … well, that was created by using just a part of the stamped greeting. Sometimes we forget how a simple little stampin’ tip like this can help transform your projects.

Here are some of the basic supplies used to create these projects …

Thank you for stopping by today. My wish for you is to have a wonderful day.

 

Quick -n- Easy Easter Egg Holder

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

With Easter coming in just days, I have a cute little egg holder to share with you.  It is quick and easy plus you can decorate it with your favorite designer paper, or let the kids help you … yes, they are that easy.

You will start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  You will want to score at 1″ … then 3-3/4″ then 4-3/4″ and finally 7-1/2″. Use your bone folder to press down your score lines, they are much crisper and sturdier.

You can punch or die cut your circle (egg hole) between the first 1″ score line and the 3-3/4″ score line. The size punch or circle die will depend on your eggs! You can set you egg inside a die or punched hole … it should not go further than half way.  That 1″ flap will also be the edge you will take to secure the holder together.

The next 1″ score line is where your first piece of designer paper will go: 2-7/8″ x 7/8″  The back flap (when folded up) will get the second piece of designer paper: 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8 … you won’t need it to fill then entire piece because part of it will be covered up when you glue it together.

Think of the fun you can have … any color cardstock, Dino Days Designer Paper or anyone of our beautiful florals, you could even use the dies cuts or stickers from your Paper Pumpkin kits!  My egg holder is more subtle … I used the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper, the colors and mosaic look reminded me of Easter.

Thank you for checking out my blog post today, and I hope you give these quick -n- cute little Easter Egg holders a try.

Have a fun & creative day ~

 

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Many Hearts …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Every now and then I like to go back at look at things we have done in the past … a flashback.  Today I’m sharing samples from our “Meant to Be” stamp set in preparation for Valentines Day. However, don’t let hearts just be for one day of the year … we should share our hearts and kindness everyday. We need a kinder world.

Today I am going to review the many cards, and you’ll be “amazed” at all of the different styles of cards and projects you can create with the “Meant to Be” stamp set and “Stitched Be Mine” dies.  If you did not get this bundle last spring when it was available, you can still purchase the two separately and you qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!!

I start with the very basic of cards … Stamp, Paper and Ink!  Super simple, great for our new stampers.

Simply stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock.  My next card is also simple but very pretty …

This cards adds a little more dimension when we simply add layers.  Our greeting is backed with the Lovely Lipstick Foil paper which is found in the Sale-a-Bration catalog and can be yours with this bundle or a $50 purchase.

The next card introduces the BigShot and the coordinating “Stitched Be Mine” dies …

This card is also very easy to make … remember this designer paper is no longer available but the “From the Heart” Specialty Designer paper is a winner this year!

The cute little white hearts are cut from the dies included in the bundle.  Many of the dies in this set include the stitched look and the scallops edges.

The next card uses the same little white hearts … and they are stamped in Flirty Flamingo…

The cute scalloped edge on the bottom is yet another die from the coordinating die set in this bundle.  I did introduce the new Stitched Rectangle dies … these are located in our Annual Catalog.  You could easily change the greeting on this card to Welcome a Baby, a Sweet Sixteen or a birthday card … possibilities are endless.

If you’re looking for treat boxes for your children’s upcoming Valentines party or a cute little gift for a neighbor or co-worker, here are some great ideas …

My next card features more of the dies, the one I’m using here actually cuts 2 hearts with one roll of your die cutting machine …

This card was done with the Grapefruit Grove foil paper is highlighted and actually comes in the same package as the Lovely Lipstick … that were Sale-a-bration items “LAST YEAR” so it you stashed it … pull it out now and start creating!!

This card uses the largest of the heart dies and the beautiful little flower die that is also included in the die set.

So many different styles … and from simple beginnings for our newest stampers to lots of beautiful layers and the BigShot.  Don’t forget all the amazing projects and treat boxes you can also make.

I thank you for joining me today … A happy Friday to you!!

Enjoy your weekend ~

Holiday Gift Tins …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Looking for a cute way to “gift” your crafting friends … try one of our Copper Tea Tins!  You can decorate these metal tins any way you’d like … I used designer paper and a coordinating ribbon to decorate my tin.

Once decorated you can fill it with all sorts of goodies.  I filled mine with designer paper cut  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ … I choose this size because with just a little trimming it’s the perfect card front.  I also added embellishments that coordinated with the paper.

There are so many items you could tuck into your tins … and they are cost effective as you get 4 tins for $15 / Perfect for friends, teachers gifts, a little something to the Sunday School teacher … anyone you just want to say thanks and show a little Christmas cheer too.

What would you tuck into your little Christmas Gift Tins? Hope this inspired you to create some fun gifting tins for your friends, family or co-workers … anyone!!

Thank you for joining me today, hope yours is a good one.

I’m Back with our Holiday Stamping Retreat!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s been a week since I last posted … so sorry for that! I was preparing for my Holiday Stamping Retreat that I hosted this past weekend, so today I’d like to show you what I’ve been doing and a look inside my retreats.

I will start with Friday and our guests arriving.  It may have been snowy outside but it was warm and welcoming inside with the smell of soups on the stove and some cute little packages adorning the dining room fireplace …

As our guests arrived, they were guided to their rooms …

Not hard to find when you have these cute little name tags to guide you in.  I used the Cup of Cheer suite … I can’t believe all the compliments on the Wrapped in Plaid designer paper! It is so festive with the gold running through the plaid, and the colors are so rich and beautiful.

To formally welcome our guests, they are gifted some delicious chocolate stars from Madeline Chocolates … YUM!! Oh yes, and a little welcome note to let them know how appreciated I am that they joined us for this special festive stamping event.

After dinner we all gathered in the stamping room to make our first set of cards for the weekend …

I will share our projects with you tomorrow, because tonight I’d like to share a little more of the fun we had on Friday!  After stamping, I asked my guests to go back to thier rooms and open thier Pillow Gifts and then join me in the living room by the fireplace for some treats and hot chocolate …

The tag was created with items from the Perfectly Plaid Suite; the  Tree Punch, Stamp Set & was highlighted with a Shimmery White Doily.

Inside our pretty little gift package you will find …

A pair of holiday socks that they were instructed to put on before the joined us for hot chocolate, a spoon filled with chocolate and marshmallows and some lip gloss just for the fun of it!

We met in front of the fireplace (sorry … I missed a picture of our Hot Chocolate table this time) and enjoyed some hot chocolate, Christmas Cookies, Peanut Brittle and good conversation.  

Before everyone headed off to their rooms for the night … We couldn’t miss sharing a picture of all our new Christmas stockings!  Just taking the  picture was a blast! lol  Flashes coming from the entire circle! Oh what fun we had …

and our friend Cindy … She thought we should all go on the stairs! That would have been an amazing picture as well.

We had a fun evening, and as promised, I will share the stamping with you tomorrow.  I continued the “Cup of Christmas” bundle and Wrapped in Plaid” Designer Paper through to our stamping projects on Friday Night.

Till then, have a good day, and thank you so much for joining me again after my week long absence, but now you know that I was in my stamp room creating a fun weekend for my retreat attendees.

See you tomorrow,

Trick or Treaters Delights …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I always love to create special little packaging for my trick or treaters … I don’t get many where I live now so it’s mainly my grandkids!  This year I will create a custom die-cut keepsakes box in record time using the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies.  You’d be surprised what can fit into these cute mini boxes.  I cut my boxes out with the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  This designer paper  provides a fresh take on favorite Halloween characters and themes.

I was thrilled to see that the set of dies included tags … so I used two of them and teamed it up with the “To Every Season” stamp set.  To every season . . . there is a time for bats, a time for snow, and a time for love. Combine the greetings and images from the To Every Season Stamp Set for tags, treat packaging, or whatever is in season.  I paired it perfectly with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Dies … these are two tools in my stamping arsenal that will be used all year long.

No craft stash is complete without the essential black ink pad… the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. You’ll love the coverage this ink gives, and that is why I not only used it in todays tags but in all my projects using the Stampin’ Blends.

he silly ties are from the on my tags are from the Black Scallop Ribbon … on the bat container I cut the edge off the ribbon to attach it and for the one with the spider webs, I actually pulled the rest of the ribbon apart and tied on the shreds!! Like that it looks like spider webs!! lol

Your trick or treaters are going to fall in love with these cute little boxes and you’ll love that they’ll be done quicker than it takes to make a witches brew!

Thank you for hanging out with me today. Enjoy your day.

Hauntingly Cute Hand Sanitizer Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you had a nice weekend and got a chance to check out the Halloween projects I shared yesterday … a card and a treat box! For some, Halloween is all about the candy, for others, they like to hand out practical gifts.  What would you think about creating something that makes those “practical” gifts more fun?  I have a cute little wrap for hand sanitizers that is quick -n- easy to make.

Let’s begin with the outer wrap.  Start with an 11″ x 3″ piece of cardstock.  Score the cardstock at 4-7/8″ and 6-1/8″ … these measurements will ensure the insert sits nicely in the wrap.  Then punch both ends, this will be used to for your ribbon and to close the top.

Attach a piece of 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ of designer paper… I used Monster Bash. We finished off the top edge of the designer paper by attaching a piece of ribbon over it and trimming off the edges.

Stamp your greeting and cut out with a favorite die or punch.  I used the coordinating die from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle and pop it up with the new black Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Set your outer wrap aside for now … it’s time to create your inner (inset) piece.  Cardstock should measure 4-1/2 x 2-7/8″ … score at 1″ – 2″ – 3″ and 4″.  Using the smallest of the scallop ovals, place it between the the two score lines closest to the 1/2″ flap. (See photo below).

Once the whole is cut out, you will need to glue the 1/2″ flap to the opposite side to create a box.  The hole needs to be facing up … add glue to the bottom (opposite side with the hole) and set it into the outer wrap between the score lines.  Now you can tuck your Hand Sanitizer into the scallop oval hole.  The Bath & Body Works small hand sanitizers fit perfectly into the oval.

This would make a cute teachers gift, thank you gifts, get well ? Any reason … flu season is coming and why not be prepared and be the cool mom on the block!  This is also a great way to use up some of that designer paper you’ve been hording … lol.

Have some fun creating these cute Halloween gifts for your ghoul friends and then make some more for just for the fun of it … Christmas is coming too!

Thanks so much for joining me today … Let me know if you liked this project, I’d love to hear what you think … just message below.

I also have a supply list below to make your shopping easy, just click on any image for more information or to begin shopping with me.

Just a reminder … Today is the last day of the Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE Designer Papers …

Simply Sunday: Dancin’ in the Moonlight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And a happy Sunday to you! Are you ready for some fun today? I’ve got a playful combination of products to share with you today… the Monster Bash product suite and the September 2019 Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appétit.

Let’s begin with the Coffin Boxes … such a fun way to share a special treat with your trick or treaters this year. I used the beautiful scroll design from our Monster Bash designer paper,  Now grab your sponge dauber and your Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink pads.  I sponged on these colors to create a candy corn look directly onto my designer paper.  Little Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer.

Next I  pulled out my Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin and adhered the vellum circle onto my lid. I took the new BLACK (I just love them) Stampin’ Dimensionals and used it to pop up my skeleton web … not only does it pop up but it give you the “dark sockets” in the skull! A bit creepy!

I added a little greeting direct from the Paper Pumpkin kit and the enamel embellishments are from our Monster Bash Suite. Then I thought it would be cute to give the recipient of this crafty little gift a “hand” … lol

With the same supplies and sponging technique, I created a coordinating card …

I just love these little skeletons and thought it would be cute to have them dancin’ across the card. These little guys are die cut images, as is the tag.  Did you know that if you subscribe for the October kit … you could then purchase this kit too!!  Past kits are available to purchase when you are a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber!

The holiday season will be here before we know it. And along with putting up the Christmas tree and spending snowy nights by the fire, many of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers will be looking forward to opening their holiday kit. Christmastime papercrafting with Paper Pumpkin has become an annual tradition!

Let’s take one last peek at our Halloween themed Paper Pumpkin and Monster Bash combination … I had a blast making these, and I’m sure my grandkids are going to love them!

Thank you for sharing a part of your Sunday with me. Hope you enjoyed my projects.

Have a wonderful day ~

Not Bones About it … Sharing Bone Appetit

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night we kicked off our 2019-20 Stamp Clubs.  I’m so excited to gather my group of stampers around the table again. It’s always a good time.  This month we are creating cards featuring the new “W” Fold card.  I’m sorry I can’t share these with you “yet” … I have another Club on Saturday and I want them to be surprised. I promise I will be sharing in the near future.

Today I’d like to share the little treat boxes that I have made for each of my club members. It comes from the 2019 September Paper Pumpkin: Bone Appetit.  These little cuties are adorned in black strips or polka dots on a orange foil.

The little tags have cute dancing skeletons (above) or a spider web (below) … just too cute! I feel in love with the skeleton hand that acts as a closure for our box …

These little boxes were quick -n- easy to assemble and decorate… and they are filled with chocolates! Can’t get better than gathering with friends, having fun making cool stuff for Halloween and chocolate!

We have a couple chairs around the table that will be open for non-club members to join us. I will post the dates and the card fold / technique that we will be doing that month, and you can RSVP and join us. Although you will not receive Hostess Benefits like club members, you will still get to create the projects with us!

To sign up for Paper Pumpkin or get more details … click the Paper Pumpkin button on the side bar on my post.

Tomorrow I will share with you a totally cute alternative project I created using my kit.

Thank you so much for joining me today, hope your day is a good one.

Halloween Bash Coffin Treat Boxes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you on this beautiful day? Last night I held my Halloween Bash …

Although I don’t share all our creations, I would like to share one.  It is the Monster Bash Coffin Boxes which make the perfect little treat box for those very special Trick or Treaters in your life.  These would also make good table décor, gift boxes or name place holders, with a treat of course at your Halloween Bash!!

These little beauties come pre-cut and pre-scored in a package of 12 so all you have to do is glue them together.  If you would like to dress them up a bit, you can emboss the lid with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder like we did in class.  The we used the new Copper Metallic Ink pad to “age” our coffin a bit.  With a gentle touch, simply drag the ink pad across the raised (embossed) images on the lid.

The cute little greeting, the black mat and the ornate copper background were all cut from the dies included in the Spooktacular Bash Bundle! Love our bundles because you can save 10% and that savings is also included when you purchase the entire product suite as a bundle… Nice!  That is what I did because I had to have it all.  I will share more of the product suite with you this month.

We added a piece of Lovely Lipstick ribbon behind our greeting and then I put a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock through my shredder and tucked it into the box to hold my treats.  I like using my cardstock this way because then it coordinates with the colors I use in the rest of my project.

I hope you enjoyed our little treat boxes as much as we did making them. They really are quick -n- easy to do and will add the prefect touch to your Halloween party. Better yet, when you see the excitement in the eyes of your special little trick or treater when you give them this fun Halloween treat.

I have a few people interested in a second class … If you would like to join us, let me know and I will host another.  We had a great time and everyone loved the projects we did!!  email me at lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com or message me below.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in to see me.

A coordinating piece of designer paper was cut from one of the circle dies to decorate the top of the cover.  We used the Tombo glue to attach our ribbon onto the sides of the cover … tied a bow ant glued that on as well.

Mini Pizza Boxes … All Decked Out!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are doing well.  It’s finally warming up here but it’s coming with rain … however, I’ll take the rain over the blizzard conditions to the west of us!! Stay warm my friends!

Today I’d like to share another Sale-a-bration item … The Mini Pizza Box and the many different ways it can be decked out (and stuffed) Did you know two good sized cookies fit in there!!

First lets team up the Pizza Box with another Sale-a-Bration item, the “Home to Roost” stamp set.  How cute are these two items together.

Next … I would like to share one of my mantle gifts from a past Stamping Retreat.  I turned the pizza box into a “gift box”… and I embossed the top flap!! Did you know that you can use your folders to emboss the cover of the pizza box.  I decked it out with a silver glitter bow on top and rhinestones on the front … they were so pretty!

A project that our attendees made were these festively decorated pizza boxes with three gift tags tucked inside.  These also made a cute little gift, whether they wanted to share them or keep the gift box with tags for themselves … we had a blast making them and they were pretty easy to make.

Let’s move away from Christmas and head over to a birthday celebration … this cute box is surely filled with lots of happy surprises and birthday wishes.  The pizza box is paired up with the “Postcard Pals” stamp set, and I know of few of my grandchildren who would love to get this for their birthday ….

If you don’t have little kids or grandchildren to deck out one of the pizza boxes … why not try the “One Wild Ride” stamp set with it.  What a fabulous way to deck out a gift card, certificate or hey … cash!!

I hope you enjoyed the five fun ways to decorate your pizza boxes … they’re so cute I wonder if they’ll even care what’s inside!  With just a $50 order, you can add these to your goodies for FREE.  Or … if you have more supplies you need to stock up on, you can add that handsome Rooster as well.

Thank you so much for spending part of your Wednesday with me …

Have yourself and awesome day.
