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!

Two for Tuesday: Layouts & Designer Papers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two different layouts for you that will showcase the designer paper! We’re going to start with the ever so popular “Banner” card layout …

 

I decided to use the “Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper … it is soooo pretty, and I can’t believe I have not used this one yet!! The patterns in this package work so nicely together for our banner layout.

I added the “Tranquil Tide” ribbon for my bow. I also used the Tranquil Tide cardstock to cut out my “amazing” from the exclusive 2018 Sale-A-Bration “Celebrate You Thinlits Dies” and “Amazing You” Stamp Set!

Our next template is fun and simple, and can be more fun or have a touch of elegance depending on the designer paper and accessories you choose…

For my second card, I’ve decided to have go with a more elegant card and use the same “Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper!

Simplicity at it’s finest … the core of your card is a 4″ x 5-1/4″ sheet of designer paper. My greeting comes for the beautiful “Charming Café” stamp set found in our Occasions catalog and punched out using the 2″ Circle Punch.

Again … our bow was created by using the Tranquil Tide Ribbon.  Your card making can be so easy if you use simple layouts and use our designer papers to create with.

Hope you enjoyed today’s “”Whole Lot of Lovely” Designer Series paper used on two simple layouts.

 

Thanks so much for joining me today. Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Birthday Party: Cue the Confetti …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we are going to get another look at our beautiful designer series paper … or FUN designs!! We are kickin’ off this day with the Picture Perfect Party Designer Paper and coordinating products.

Take a good look because today’s layout is very similar to yesterdays layout!

I cut my Picture Perfect Party designer paper smaller (4-1/2 x 3-1/4) than I did yesterday so my base created a larger border … then I stamped to created a fun but subtle background.  Again … I’m using the banner to highlight my greeting from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set.

I created my banner today (and yesterday) with the Triple Banner Punch… then cut up some of the Myths & Magic Washi Tape to create some confetti!!

To make sure this card really kicks off the party … I cut out the Noise Maker or what some call “BlowOuts” but it’s cute and fun, fun, fun at the party!

What a difference the designer paper makes even when using similar layouts! Tomorrow I’ll have two different layouts for you for our Two for Tuesday blog post.

Thanks for stopping by today …

Hope your Monday is full of fun!

I quick post today for a Simple but elegant card! Today I’m using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper … If you’re like me, you buy it … use it for the projects you were shown and then you tuck it away and kind of forget about it!

Well this week I’m going to showcase all kinds of our beautiful designer series paper along with some great template to use! Let’s begin with today …

We’ve had some beautiful days here in Wisconsin – about 50 degrees  (amazing for January!) So I was really in the mood for spring flower …. Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper!

Banner are hot right now, and are great for making quick -n- easy cards. The “amazing you” die cuts come from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies in the Sale-A-Bration catalog … You can get this exclusive item FREE with a $100 purchase!! I used the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper for the “amazing”.

 I borrowed some items from my Myths & Magic product suite … the “amazing” was cut from the glimmer paper (comes in 3 colors) and if you look above the banner you will see the coordinating Washi Tape.  This is be BEST washi tape we’ve ever had … at least I think so 🙂

Snow Globe – Shaker Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend … Sunday turned out to be a beautiful fall day.

Today I want to share with you another retreat card … a shaker card! Our afternoon session include 3 cards that we created using the “Hearts Come Home” bundle. My mission was to show them how quick and easy you can create a shaker card.

Our background comes from the Merry Music Designer Specialty Paper. Using the Layering Circles Framelits dies, we cut 1 white and 1 window sheet from the same size circle. Then we took the scallop circle and the circle one size smaller that our precut circles, and layered them together before cutting to create our frame.

On the white circle, we stamped our house in Black and then our Santa in Smoky Slate. Our next step was to attach the foam adhesive strips to the outer edge of the white circle. Once applied, you can fill this with whatever you’d like … we used a large glitter and Red Glimmer hearts.

Once you have filled your “well” … remove the top layer off the adhesive strip and drop the window sheet over the top – press to seal. Next, we glued the frame onto the window sheet.

To create a snowglobe … I used the Everyday Label punch!! This is the punch that we used on the Merry Little Christmas Suite cards. Our  greeting was heat embossed in white and then the punch was aligned (1/2 way into the cardstock) to create the base… then punch!

Use the adhesive strip to mount the base onto the front of the card so it’s the same height as the globe.

Everybody loves getting Shake Cards, and now you know how to make a Snowglobe Shaker …. quick -n- easy!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me and visiting my blog.

Have yourself a great day!

Merry Little Christmas Suite …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you another one of our retreat cards. This card comes from the Merry Little Christmas Suite!

This masculine style card was quick -n- easy and a big hit at retreat. Our background comes from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series paper. We then cut a snow bank our of a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Next, we used the tree dies from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Die and cut them out of Old Olive to give the card a fun pop of color.

The “Let it Snow” was stamped in Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then punched with the “Everyday Label” punch. A piece of Old Olive was punched to mask the greeting and again, add that nice touch of color.

We created 4 quick -n- easy cards that were tucked into one of the Acetate Card Boxes. This makes a perfect little gift for a teacher or neighbor … or keep them protected for yourself!

Hope you enjoyed today’s peek into our Saturday morning retreat stampin’ session. I’ll be back tomorrow with one more …

Till then, enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is a quick list of the products used for our card today …
