Designer Paper Party!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Last night I hosted my “Designer Paper” class.  It was a fun night with wonderful ladies … lots of laughs but we still managed to make our cards!!  The focus was on paper techniques and folds because of the Buy One Get One FREE promotion from Stampin’ Up!

I love using designer paper … it can take you from Quick -n- Easy (still beautiful) to Upscale -n- Elegant!! Here is a card that we made last night, and if there is a name for this technique I don’t know what it is, what I do know is that I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time … and it’s EASY!!

This is another great way to use up your scraps!! Cut them into squares, use the new triple punch which has the corner rounder and viola … a quick and cute card!!  The pretty patterns in the Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper are perfect for any style card … I love babies, but let’s think outside of the box. I think it’s perfect for birthday”s, graduations and more – why I bet you could even make a Christmas card out of it!!

The greeting comes from the “Detailed With Love” stamp set, you’ve seen me use this before and you can find it on page 39 of the Annual Catalog. It has great sentiments and pretty elements in it!  Better yet, it’s part of the bundle with the punch!! When you purchase the Detailed Trio Punch and the Detailed with Love stamp set as a bundle … you can save 10%!!

Love this shot …it really shows the dimension on this card.  I’ve also added a little bling to the card … of course!  The new Silver Bakers Twine (Pool Party) and the Faceted Gems, which I think are fabulous and so happy they stayed in the catalog another year 🙂

I thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the card!

Have a great day ~

Simply Sunday: Butterfly Kisses

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you’ve had time to enjoy this beautiful weekend! I’ve been busy stamping, planning classes and visiting with my great grandbabies! Life is good!!

Today’s card features the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Paper … in fact, because of the sale, the last few days have featured our designer papers!! This quick card just takes a few runs through the BigShot and you’re pretty much done.

The “dots” on my designer paper inspired me to continue the circles in my design, so I cut out a Whisper White and a Soft Sea Foam with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The double cut “hollow” circle is done in the new Gray Granite color, which is also the base of our card.

I did tuck a little Soft Sea Foam behind the designer paper to tie in our major circle which highlights the butterfly.  Our butterfly comes from the Springtime Impressions Framelits and is cut from the Petal Pink.

To make this beautiful butterfly “pop” even more … I added the Basic Pearls, another item I always keep handy in my stampin’ stash!! You can see that my color pallet came from the Twinkle Twinkle designer paper … takes all the stress out of coordinating your projects.

My greeting comes from the Twinkle Twinkle stamp set, I just omitted everything but the “love you” by covering the stamp with Washi Tape!! Once the stamp is inked … just peel off the washi tape 🙂

This designer paper may have the intention of “baby” but let your imagination go wild and use your designer papers for any application!!” You may find that it’s just the touch you need.

I appreciate you spending a part of your Sunday with me and checking out my blog.

Have an awesome Sunday ~

Simply Sunday: I Made a Wish

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so excited to share another card I created using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set! Not only am I sharing the card but a great stampin’ tip that I used in creating this card. Again, today’s card is not included in the card class, so if you are coming … you’ll have additional ideas!

As of last night, there are only 3 spots left. If you would like to join us … give me a call at the number listed above.  If there is more interest, I will open another date!

Today’s layout is simple to recreate, fun and colorful.  My color pallet consists of the new Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce teamed up with the Pacific Point.  Not sure I would have put these colors together by myself, but when you put them all together … it looks nice.  And it is the basis of the designer paper.

The designer paper I used is the 6 x 6 Garden Impressions Designer Paper stack … there are so many cute designs in this stack. It’s fun and colorful!!  Today’s pattern seemed to match with the Dandelion Wishes.

The greeting and images were both stamped in the Shaded spruce, in fact … they were both put on the same clear block!!

Putting multiple stamps on one block makes stamping easy! If you are doing several cards … you may want to consider purchasing the Stamparatus (Click Here to View)

The Soft Sea Foam is so “soft” and pretty and really seams to works well with this stamp set and the patterned paper I found in the Garden Impressions pack. All the layering on this quick -n- easy card takes it a step up.

Hope you enjoyed today’s Simply Sunday share.  I appreciate you taking the time out of your weekend to check in with me.

Thank you, and I’ll see you tomorrow with another Dandelion Wishes card!!

Have a great day ~

Technique Tuesday: Glitter Designer Paper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you are a glitter addict then I have the perfect technique for you… Glitter Designer Paper!  I have been doing this for years … the only thing that has changed is the adhesive that I used.  Today I’m using the fabulous Multipurpose adhesive sheets! Quick * Clean * Glitter perfect!!  Pictures do not do it justice!

I’m using the beautiful Petal Promenade Designer Paper. If you love fresh flowers, you will love this paper, the patterns are so pretty and look like they are ready to be picked with the photographic floral designs ❤

I begin with the choice of designer papers … that will set you up for a perfect color pallet (the colors are already listed on the designer paper packaged – Thanks Stampin’ Up!). I chose the returning Mossy Meadow and new Petal Pink, and Whisper White for my greeting.

Using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets makes this technique so easy. I cut the adhesive sheet slightly larger than my designer paper, then I trim off the extra.  This ensures I have full coverage of adhesive on my designer paper … don’t want any spots that don’t have glitter!!

Once I have the covering removed … I put the sheet into my glitter tub and sprinkle it with the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I made sure to cover it fully and then tap off the excess glitter.  Then I use a scrap piece of paper and cover the glittered paper. My next step is to firmly press the glitter into the adhesive – I use one of my clear blocks.  Remove scrap paper and tap off any excess glitter. WOW! Just beautiful!!

I matted the glitter paper onto the Mossy Meadow cardstock and then onto the card base in Petal Pink.  I used the Label Me Pretty stamp set and stamped the lined decor in Petal Pink and the greeting in Mossy Meadow… then it was punched with Pretty Label punch.  I punched out another label in Mossy Meadow, cut it in half and then attached it to the back … this allows you to mat the label 🙂

I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the filigree lines on the label and the rhinestones to add a touch of bling to my blinged out card!! I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the greeting which added a little dimension to the card. Again, the camera does not capture the full beauty of this card.

I thank you for spending a part of your day with me. I encourage you to try this beautiful and fun technique. It really is quite easy as well.  I have listed the supplies I used on today’s card below.

You’re the Best! Have a beautiful day ~

Simply Sunday: New In-Color Introduction …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

First let me wish all of you a Happy Mother’s Day … to all of you who inspire, care for, support and encourage others, this day is for you whether you gave birth or not, because that is what mothers do. It’s your day … enjoy!!

Today I have a special treat for you, 5 cards created with the “Share What You Love” Bundle that showcase our new 2018-2020 In-Colors!!  This is a pretty yet simple card to create, just some turns of that BigShot and your on your way!

Each card is stamped with it’s coordinating color and embossed with the Lovely Floral embossing folder found in the Share What You Love product suite.  Before I embossed the flower on the small square … I cut out the square using the Stitched Shape Framelit Dies.

Here is a photo to show you how I aligned the cardstock into the die so I could emboss the lower left-hand corner … it gives the card a little extra texture!

The folder actually aligns up to the left side of your BigShot platform and your cardstock to the right … now tuck your cardstock down into the folder so the corner sits into the center of the flower. Works great and gives you just that little touch of texture!

Now … let’s see those beautiful new In-Colors close up! These are fun, playful colors you are sure to fall in love with!!

Introducing: LOVELY LIPSTICK: I simply love this fun new color! It’s not quite red or hot pink but somewhere in between to give you a fun … sassy red!

GRAPEFRUIT GROVE … I don’t know how to describe this color other that it really looks like the wonderful grapefruit color you see when you slice open a juicy grapefruit .. YUM!!

PINEAPPLE PUNCH … and speaking of YUM, who doesn’t like pineapple? This color is a soft, sunny yellow that will just bring a smile to your face.

CALL ME CLOVER … Callin’ all lovers of green, you will definately fall for this one, just like laying in a patch of clover on a warm summer day!  Hmmm … does that bring an image to your mind that makes you want to match this up with another new color? Let’s just wait and see!!

BLUEBERRY BUSHEL …  Another yummy color, this warm blue will really remind you of pint of blueberries. I am really liking this one!

Are you in love with the new In-Colors yet?  I am … I really think the new color pallet is new and fresh and just what we needed to compliment our color line.

In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well! No more bubbling!! I know you’ll love that!

I want to thank you for joining me today and taking time out of your day to share it with me.

I wish you a colorful day filled with fun!!

Simply Sunday: Go for the Gold… Rose Gold!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well, the Olympics are coming to an end tonight but striving for Gold will not stop there for some of the athletes … they will start working all over again.  I don’t know if it’s the Olympic year or what, but foils – Gold, Silver, & Bronze are Hot, Hot, Hot right now!

We’ve got you covered in the Annual catalog in Gold, Silver and Bronze …. but did you see the NEW Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper? WOW … it is stunning! And … there’s the new Rose Gold!!

I am so excited about this beautiful paper that it is just one of the Gifts that my Hostesses’ are receiving for hosting a stampin’ party!! I also have a couple of cute surprises that are tucked into our new Silver Mini Gabel Boxes (pg.13 / Occasions Catalog) that is decorated with one of the patterns from the Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I still have 2 more sets of Hostess Gifts if you would like to host a Stampin’ Party! Have a girls night out (they are so needed!!) and have some fun stampin’ with your friends. They can get FREE Sale-a-bration items and you will receive additional Hostess Benefits with a qualifying party.

Here is just one of the Make -n- Takes we made at Kathie’s party. Playing with the new Sale-a-bration Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper was a must, and they loved it …

This pattern has silver and gold foils so we made those “pop” by matting it on a black card base and a black focal point cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelit dies.

The greeting comes from the “Flourishing Phrases” stamp set and a banner created using the Triple Banner Punch. A touch of gold (leaf die cut) was added to draw your eye in and tie in the gold from the designer paper.

Oh yes … this shot shows the beauty of the foils. This card is simply classy and oh so timeless! Plus, it can be used for any occasion. I love it, and it was a big hit at Kathie’s party.

I will design a special one just for your group as well. My stampin’ parties are tailored to my hostesses and what they like 🙂

I thank you for checking out my blog today, and I hope you think about having a stampin’ party! It’s a great night (or afternoon) out.

Have a simply awesome Sunday!
