Wild About You!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I was shopping for a new laptop yesterday with not much luck, I’m just grateful (and blessed) that my 18 year old computer still lets me get my blogging done! She’s like a faithful dog… there when I need her!!

I’m going to share two cute cards with you today that feature the “Animal Expedition” Designer paper. Each day until the end of the month, I will be showcasing fun cards/projects that correlate with the Stampin’ Up! July promotions!

The adorable “Animal Expedition” Designer paper coordinates with the Animal Outing Bundle / Animal Expedition product suite on pages 26 and 27 of the Annual Catalog. These cute creatures can be hand stamped colored and then die cut making your layering a breeze …

This is a great stamp set if you love to color and have fallen for these cute little guys!  You can use the amazing Stampin’ Blends, the markers or the Water color pencils and Blender pen … any of these would give you great results.

The two cards that I’m sharing today were samples on one of the Display Boards at our Milwaukee OnStage event. This is a demonstrator event that Stampin’ Up! hosts  … they are full of fun, stamping, training and card swapping!! It’s just one of the great resources you have as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

Designer Paper Creations – A Parade of Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the late post … my laptop “CRASHED” and I’m working off my home computer that is older than most of my grandchildren – and they are in high school! lol

So today I’m going to share a collection of cards that I have created with the Designer Series paper!! I always use my paper for quick -n- easy cards when I’m in a hurry or to embellish a beautiful card for someone special.

The first two cards are created with the Petal Promenade 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper!  It is “realistic” and oh so beautiful …

I will be sharing more cards with all the amazing Designer Papers over the next week (even if I have to go out and buy a new computer or laptop)!

My next cards are designed with the Garden Impressions 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Pack

Here are the cards that I created with the Twinkle Twinkle 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper … From Birthday cards … to baby cards …. to Christmas Cards … you can’t go wrong with a little twinkle!!

You’ve seen quite a few cards created with 3 of the 10 Designer papers currently available with the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE promotion

Now here are a few of my older creations done with the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack that is also included in this promotion …

One for the ladies (above) and one for the guys (below) …

and one more just because I love the Wood Textures Designer paper … and ALL the Designer Papers!

It is easy to see how versatile Designer Paper really is.  It can “be” your card or it can enhance your card. It’s perfect when highlighting techniques or showcasing a die cut!!

Sit back with your catalog and pick out your favorite 4 … because when you  purchase 3, you will get the 4th one FREE!

BUT WAIT … Don’t order just yet!!  Tomorrow I will be back with a special promotion of my own!! I will have a FREE Gift for your purchase.  DETAILS TOMORROW … so you will want to come back for that!

Thank your for your patience today and I hope you enjoyed this parade of cards.

I wish you a beautiful day today ~

Picnic Basket Fun …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Didn’t you think those baskets and notecards were cute yesterday? Totally loved them but what if 3-D projects aren’t your style?  Well … I have a fun alternative for you! I love the baskets and thought that they would look cute on the front of my  card – sooooooooooooooo…

Oh My Gosh … I had so much fun creating this card and it was so easy!! I just cut one of the side flaps off the die cut basket, added the rim around the top and added the handle!!

Everything is die cut in this months Paper Pumpkin kit and some pieces already have adhesive on them so placing the strawberries in the basket were simple. Even the little leaves have adhesive so I pulled the two ends together (they were open) and it created a nice cupped leaf look!!

I had to shoot the card at this angle so you could see all the texture and dimension of this card!! The only thing I added to the kit was the card base in Real Red and the Night of Navy front which was embossed with the “Basket Weave” embossing folder!

Hope you have as much fun checking out this card as I did making it!  You could join in on the fun and sign up for next months kit … it’s a great time to try it out …

Technique Tuesday: COLLAR FOLD

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you going crazy over the Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE Designer Series paper promotion?  Whew … I am (twice already) lol  But, what do you do when you love both sides of that designer paper??  Well I have a good answer for you today … the “Collar Fold” technique!

The Collar Fold shows off both sides of your designer paper and is really easy to do! So let me show you … Start with a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of designer paper, I used one of the colorful floral patterns from the “Garden Impressions” Designer paper.

Center your designer paper in your cutter at the 3-3/4″ (That is half of the 5-1/4″ length) Then place your cutter at the 2″ mark on the ruler … then cut to edge. YUP … that simple! Now you will just fold those cuts back.  You can tape them down or use a dimensional like I did on this card (to give it a little lift!)

When using a dark base like the Melon Mambo that I used here,  I like to tuck a piece of Whisper White behind it … it really makes the greeting stand out.  My greeting came from the “Beautiful Banquet” stamp set however if you were going to purchase the “Abstract Impressions” bundle … that is where the cute little flower die came from, they have some awesome greetings that would work great!!

I had to add the flower because I’m not to fond of bare edges so I topped off my flower with the cute little “Clear Faceted Gems”. Really makes the flower pop!!

Because the “Garden Impressions” designer paper is 6″ x 6″ there will be some paper left overs which you can tuck on the inside and jazz that up a bit as well.

Have some fun and flip those designer papers back and show off both beautiful sides!  Don’t throw those scraps away …tuck them on the inside or create other projects with them.

Thanks for stopping back today and checking out my Technique Tuesday. Let me know what technique you would like to see featured!!

Have a beautiful day ~

This was one of my favorite months and you can tell because it was so easy to play with and come up with additional designs. In fact, I bought myself and extra kit because it had those kit little pillow boxes for treats … Yummy Fun!!
