Simply Sunday: Sneak Peek!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a Sneak Peek into the new MINI Catalog and Sale-a-bration Catalog! I’m using the Laser cut paper from the Dandy Garden Suite along with the beautiful “Heal Your Heart” Stamp Set from our Sale-a-bration catalog.

For those of you who are new to stamping and do not know what Sale-a-bration is; it’s our most exciting and anticipated event of the year … and this year we will celebrate twice!! Our upcoming Sale-a-bration period will run from January 5th through February 28th. For each $50 purchase (before shipping & taxes) can chose one of the many amazing products from our Sale-a-bration Catalog … these are exclusive to this event only!

Let’s take a look at today’s card …

I began with the Laser cut piece and layered it over the stunning Fine Art Floral Designer Series paper from the Mini Catalog. I chose the pattern that looks like brush strokes of a painting … I thought it created a beautiful background to my laser cut paper. This front piece was layered with dimensionals onto a piece of Mango Melody which I cut a small piece off and split it apart to create some added dimension and creates a simple but fun twist to the card!

The greeting comes from the “Heal Your Heart” stamp set that comes from our Sale-a-bration catalog … which you can earn for FREE during the Sale-a-bration period. I used the Everyday Label Punch to highlight the greeting, I then put on a few Rhinestones and popped it up with dimensionals. I love the layering on this simple card … it really helps bring it to life!

I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into our upcoming catalogs … If you have ordered through me in the last year, you should be receiving both catalogs. I have heard that they are just being delivered … I hope they are not stuck int this pile…

Please keep me posted on whether you have received your catalogs or not … I want to make sure you have yours before my Spring Sale-a-bration Party!! More information on that soon.

Have a wonderful day and Thank You for joining me today.

Introducing the new Posted for You Bundle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I would like to share with you a cute card from one of our upcoming stamp set / bundles in the New Mini Catalog (I hope you got yours!!)

You will have fun all year long with the positively playful—and versatile—Posted for You Bundle! This bundle is perfect for crafters of all levels and features imagery and sentiments for all kinds of occasions. Add in some coloring tools, and you can really make your projects unique
and beautiful.

There are so many possibilities with the Posted for You Bundle … Create postcards and greeting cards with the delicate line-art and postage stamp-sized images from the Posted for You Stamp Set. The subtle images stamped onto each of the different colors creates such a fun card and it’s all tied together with a little Bakers Twine. The greeting is highlighted with a piece of Vellum cardstock!

Here is another to show that you can also add your coloring talents to the card …

Just a little sponging on this card but you could explore many different looks by using your Watercolor Pencils, the Markers or the Stampin’ Blends … or watercolor with your ink and Aqua Painters. So many different ways to color and be creative with this fun bundle.

Hope you enjoyed today’s peek inside the new Mini … and I really am interested to see if you have gotten yours. With all the mail delays, I was hoping THIS would not be one of them.

Have a wonderful day ~

Curvy Variations …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you today? Hope you are well … Today I’d like to take a walk through the many variations of the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. Let’s begin with my first …

The beautiful Feels Like Frost Designer Series paper teamed up with the Quite Curvy Bundle makes your cardmaking quick and easy! Don’t forget the beautiful silver patterns on the other side of this stunning designer paper.

My next card introduces you to the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration) It’s so fun and pretty …. great for cheering up your friends and family for any occasion!

Here are three more patterns from the Flower & Field Designer paper using the same layout ….

Aren’t the patterns fun and pretty?! Love them. Next up is my card design from the Curvy Christmas and Classic Christmas Designer paper …

I did use the sample layout as I did in the cards I shared with the new Flowers and Field Designer Paper that is available during Sale-a-bration. The layering of the designer paper and cardstock makes for quick -n- easy card making.

I used the 6″ x 6″ Classic Christmas Designer Paper … you can purchase this in the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (that has it all) along with the Curvy Christmas stamp set. I chose the pattern with the stars for Christmas, although I’ve seen some amazing cards on Pinterest using this bundle for Christmas. Here’s another …

The brown tone card was created by Stampin’ Up! While I was working on my card with the Stars … it just reminded me of the Fourth of July, our Service Men and Women and a celebration so I swapped out my cardstock to Night of Navy and another holiday was represented!!

The greeting comes from the Quite Curvy bundle and the stars come from the Curvy Christmasa stamp set. This is such a versatile variety bundle, like me, I’m sure you would like it all.

The last card share I have for you was my latest creation, changing it up by using the die as an edgelit and creating a fun card front and exposing a bit of the inside of the card …

The Quite Curvy bundle will be available later, however the Curvy Christmas is retiring. I have posted the links to the products so you can get a better look at the offerings. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

Thank you so much for stopping by today… I hope yours is a great one.

Thinking of You at Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

The weekend is slowly sneaking up on us … and so is Christmas! Today I have another card to share with you that I made using the another pattern from the “Classic Christmas” Designer Series paper. This 6″ x 6″ designer paper is included in the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle.

I wanted to create a different look than what I have been showing you so I used one of the other dies as an edgelit so you could see another way to use those dies. It looks so pretty and it gives your card a whole new look.

The greeting comes from the Curvy Christmas stamp set and really highlights the edge of our card, as so those pretty little Red Rhinestones …

I cut the edge just like I showed you in the video where we split the card in two and put our greeting in the center … her we just created a totally different look by leaving the second (or bottom) piece off completely!!

The Red Ribbon accents and coordinates with our greeting (Stamped in Real Red) and the Red Rhinestones. I chose the Shaded Spruce cardstock to add a rich dark green to compliment the red. Contrasting colors have a way of making the whole card pop … and the white base really brings out the white in the designer paper.

The Quite Curvy bundle will be available later, however the Curvy Christmas is retiring … so the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle will be gone too. I have posted the links below that you can click on and learn more about the products.

Thank you for joining me today… I hope you have a wonderful day.

I did use the sample layout as I did in the cards I shared with the new Flowers and Field Designer Paper that is available during Sale-a-bration. The layering of the designer paper and cardstock makes for quick -n- easy card making.

I used the 6″ x 6″ Classic Christmas Designer Paper … you can purchase this in the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle (that has it all) along with the Curvy Christmas stamp set.

Guest Stamper: Deb Anderson

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another “DRAPERY FOLD” card for you … from Deb Anderson. Deb caught my Facebook LIVE demonstration on the Drapery Fold and was inspired to try it out … and she shared this sample with me ….

Deb used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper for her card …

It is fairly simple to make and does not need a lot of supplies, and it’s fun! It give you a touch of “fanciness” on your card but slides into the envelope quite easy.

I have a video for you to watch, my Technique Tuesday video from my Facebook LIVE last night. Have a bit of a rest and watch the video …

What did you think … ?? This is the type of card that looks fancy but is pretty easy to make. Any designer paper could be used for this style of card. I chose to use the Poinsettia Place suite… such a pretty pattern and a natural background to accent the fold.

I have written down the measurements for you ….

I also showcased both cards in the photo … the one on the left is the one where the drapery fits from end to end, and the one on the right is the one I trimmed off to create a border all the way around my card front.

I hope I inspired you to try out this simple yet pretty “FUN FOLD”, then I’d LOVE to see what you create.

Have yourself a wonderful day, and thank you for spending part of it with me.

Curvy Christmas Greeting …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As promised … I am back today with my “Curvy Christmas” card. I can’t believe how easy this was to use and how cool the card turned out. Since I’m going Christmas, I chose the Feels Like Frost Designer Series paper. Once run through the Stampin’ Cut -n- Emboss machine and the Curvy Dies delivered this ……

My base is Whisper White and cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″. The card front, also Whisper White is 5-1/4″ x 4″. The Feels Like Frost Designer Paper was cut 5-1/4″ x 3″ … and then I ran it through the die cutting machine with the Curvy Die. Once cut you just slide it apart and it exposes the area where you will stamp your greeting.

The greeting comes from the Curvy Christmas stamp set … the little stars are included in there as well. The cool thing about the Photopolymer stamps, is that you can shape them to fit “where” you want it to go.

I secure the bottoms piece before I stamp my greeting but I leave the top so I can adjust it if needed … If I do, I just trim off the excess paper. I am going to host an online class where I can show you more about this fun and amazing product line.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope today kicks off an amazing weekend for you!!

Have a great day ~

Simply Sunday: Trimming the Town Slimline Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my gosh … can you believe it is the 6th of December already? WOW At times (not always) this year has seemed to fly by … I hope you are all safe, healthy and ready for the holidays!

I have a new card layout I’d like to share with you today along with a big announcement from Stampin’ Up! Let’s begin with their announcement as I have two projects to share with you today …

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE RETIREMENT LIST

Both of the items I will be sharing today are on the retirement list, let’s begin with the Slimline card … I’ve done these years ago (before someone gave them a fancy name … lol) I think they are fun because they are different from our normal size yet they fit nicely into a business size envelope!

Ok … a little hard to see but there is a Early Espresso card base … 8″ width x 8-1/2″length …. scored at 4′ on the width length and fold in half. My Pool Party mat measures 3-3/4″ x 8-1/4″ and then my Trimming the Town designer paper measures 3-1/2″ by 8″ …. I had a hard time cutting this designer paper pattern because it just looked so cool, but this layout gave me large pieces to work with and show how beautiful this really is.

That cute greeting is actually cut from another pattern found in the Trimming the Town Designer paper! Join me for a LIVE event where I go through the Holiday catalog highlighting what is going to retire and many, many samples!!

My second project is the Christmas Countdown Kit … this cute Advent type calendar is perfect for hiding those sweet treats as you count down the days to Christmas. Here is what the kit offers ….

I teamed up the kits with the Trimming the Town Designer Series paper. I am using the pattern that I used on my Slimline Card to highlight that pretty paper. I used one of the pieces from the kit as a template …

Thank you for joining me today, and I hope you will join me tomorrow at 7pm on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page for a walk through the catalog as I highlight the retiring items.

Have an amazing day ~

MOST WONDERFUL TIME PRODUCT SUITE…

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I will be sharing one of our Christmas Card kits that was brought back to the Holiday Catalog by popular demand.  This is an amazing product suite.  I was lucky enough to receive this suite as a gift from Stampin’ Up! on the Greece Incentive trip.

We spent that day in Santorini … such a beautiful place. I wish I was back there!

When we returned to our rooms that evening we got a really cute bag from Stampin’ Up! and it was filled with the “MOST WONDERFUL TIME PRODUCT SUITE” and a note that said we should bring this with us to Make & Takes in the morning…

Everything you need to create your projects are included in the Wonderful Time Product Suite. Stamp Set, dies, designer papers, embellishments and more, and that is what the is too.

Here are the three cards that we made during our Make & Take session yesterday morning. I love how cute the Christmas tree’s look with the tinsel trim and the designer paper with the “gold” that glimmers so beautifully ….

I love the deer but I just can’t get over how cute that Christmas tree is with the tinsel wrapped around it … Perfect for St.Nick!

Thank you so much for taking a part of your Friday to visit my blog …

Have an amazing day!

Reverse Masking Technique with Winter Woods

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have my video to share with you today … I am demonstrating the “Reverse Masking” technique and highlighting two different mediums you can use to create your reverse mask! I also have some additional stamping tips to share with you. Sit back and enjoy the video …

What a fun and easy technique this is …. It’s an oldie but a goodie!! I love how this technique creates depth to your card without all the layers and hazzle! Which one of the mediums to do this technique do you prefer? The sponge daubers or the brush? The Blending Brushes will be available in the upcoming Jan – June Mini catalog!

I used Shaded Spruce for my sponging and for the tree and of course it is the main color of our designer paper which comes from the Wonder of the Season and is called the “Tis the Season” 6 x 6, and is layered onto the Basic Black card base.

The Tree and Greeting both come from the Winter Woods stamp set … it was Hot, Hot, Hot last year but I think it’s the perfect year round stamp set!

A little piece of the extra designer paper was adhered inside to coordinate our entire card. The pretty gold edged Real Read ribbon is from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking it out.
