My Holiday Favorites …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

On Saturday I shared over 30 cards and 3-D projects of some of my favorite retiring items, and as we enter the last stretch I thought it would be fun to share my Christmas fav’s …. I’ve got over 20 samples, they wouldn’t fit onto Saturday’s post.

Most of my avid customers already have most of these stamp sets and dies or punches, they are fun to create with and are so very versatile.

Let’s start out with the DASHING DEER …

Dashing Deer brings the serenity on nature into this Christmas set yet can be made quite sophisticated.

Introducing Winter Wood …. I used these a lot together (Dashing Deer & Winter Woods) Again, you will see elegance intertwined with nature … pure beauty.

 

 

My next pick is the MAKING CHRISTMAS BRIGHT …. These two are fun and whimsical and sure to brighten up anyone’s holiday.

 

 

The last I’ll be sharing is MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL … This is the perfect stamp set and coordinating dies if you are looking for greetings and sentiments.

A women of few words today, but I think the card samples and products speak for themselves. I have enjoyed using these for the past couple of years …

If you would like to purchase any of these items, I have them listed below.  If you would like help, please let me know by contacting me 262-334-1009, or lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com

Thank you for kickin’ back with me today while we strolled threw these card.

Have an awesome day ~

Background Technique: Using Dies for Inking Backgrounds

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Not sure how you feel about it, but the weekend sure does go by quickly! However, I have been busy playing with my stamps. Yesterday I shared a cute -n- quick card that highlighted the Honey Bee Bundle.  Here are my samples in both the portrait and landscape format.

Today, I’m going to share with you a fun technique that I found on Pinterest and wanted to share with you.  If you don’t have designer paper, this is a fun way to create a background … Use your “dies” as a stencil to create your background!!

I laid the smooth side against my cardstock and held it tight with my fingers, however, you can tack it down with washi tape or post it notes, and then you use your sponge daubers to dab ink within the die to create your background!  If you don’t like that you may get ink outside of the die … just die cut a piece of scrap paper and use that as your template.

You will notice that my card is pretty much like yesterday’s except for the “hand sponged” background and a couple more bee’s!! Of course … I did add the Wink of Stella to this one too.  I don’t know what it is, but it makes it look like gold!

The beehive is stamped in Crushed Curry and embellished with a swam of bees … well, we did create a honeycomb so they were busy creating the sweetness for this card.

So … what do you think? Fun background? I like getting my money’s worth out of the products that I buy and I can use them for more than one purpose … well, it draws me like bees to honey!!

Thank you so much for stopping back to check out my background technique.

Wishing you some sunshine and happiness today.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Or … you can sit down and relax as you watercolor your lined images to create a soft, beautiful scene.

Oh my gosh … Don’t you just want to walk through the field of tulips?  Since we can’t go to Holland, Michigan for their amazing Tulip Festival this year … this is the next best thing.  You can find this beautiful stamp set on page 44 of the Annual (big) Catalog.

Here are the links to the RETIREMENT LISTS ….

Simply Sunday: Saying Goodbye to Lilypad Lake

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two cute cards that may bring the feel of a warm sunny day … and for me, a touch of sadness as I seeing a stamp set and dies retire. It’s the beautiful Lilypad Lake bundle, and I wanted to create that “lake” feel … I hope it takes you to the warmth and wonder of the lake.

 I cut out my background in Whisper White with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (also on the retired list) … This will create the focal point, and was sponged with Balmy Blue.  The sun was cut from the dies included in the bundle.

Our bird was stamped and then cut again with the coordinating dies.  the water is also a die that we cut in Balmy Blue … before we attached it we covered that entire area on the sponged white with our Snail adhesive.

The bottom 1/3 of the piece was coated with the Snail (retiring but being replaced with something better!), then we laid the die cut (which I’m using as waves/water) onto the piece … once secure, we dipped it into the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (another item on the retirement list) and WOW!!  We just pushed the glitter down onto the Snail to hold it better … It looks so cool.

Here are the core / retiring items that I have used on my cards today.  You can click on any item to check it’s availability … Order through me and I will pay the tax on your order during April.

Stampin’ Supply List …

My second card, also a sparkling water image, is how I’d like to social distance.  Actually … I should be saying goodbye to my retreat attendee’s instead of training at work, but I felt it was socially responsible to cancel my stamping retreat 😦  I am missing my ladies … and this view!

The water was simply stamped onto our card front, the boats were stamped die cut and colored.  Our shimmery lake comes from the assistance of the “Wink of Stella”.

The beach was sponged on to make it look like sand … and the relaxing Adirondack Chair comes from the Seasonal Layers die set (again … retiring!)  You should get a good feel of what you can create with this beautiful stamp set.

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Make sure you come back each day this week as I will be featuring some very special cards and projects!

Have a beautiful day ~

Simply Sunday: Colorful Hugs Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you are enjoying your weekend … whether it’s just another day or a well needed break.  Today I have two cards to share with you that highlight the 2018-20 In-Colors.  I took out my bin of scraps and came up with these quick -n- easy cards.

I had a lot of left over 1″ strips of cardstock so I thought it was the perfect way to showcase our out going 2018-20 In-Colors! I cut a piece of white cardstock to 5″ x 3-3/4″ and attached my 1″ strips to it.  I did 5″ width because I have 5 In-colors x 1 inch strips = 5 inches!

Once I had all the cardstock attached, I trimmed off the excess and added a simple bow using the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Then I mounted my assembly onto a piece of Basic Black to mat the assembly and make the colors really pop!!  The card front was now mounted onto the Whisper White card base.

Now it was time to add my hearts … I punched the mat / Scalloped Heart from Vellum Cardstock.  Our greeting from the So Sentimental stamp set “Sending Healing Hugs” is perfect for the time we are in right now, and was stamped with Lovely Lipstick from our 2018-20 In-Colors.  The hearts were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some depth and texture to the card.

Now, if you want to step it up a bit, here is another sample to punch it up …

The basic layout is the same as the first card except before the bow is added, I ran it through the my embossing machine with the Tin Tile 3D folder. This just added some fun to your card, and with so many embossing folders to choose from, you’re sure to find something that fits your theme.

Once I embossed it, I added the ribbon but with a twist this time!!  I layered the ribbon with an end on each side and then tied the Grapefruit Grove ribbon around it to create a pretty “fluffy” bow!! The greeting / hearts also remained the same.  So as you can see … it didn’t take much to add a little more pizzazz to your card. Great texture and eye appeal.

A list of the supplies used today …

Hope you enjoyed today’s card and another way to use your 2018-20 In-Colors, or any scraps for that matter.

Enjoy the rest of your day, and thank you for joining me.

Celebrating the 2018-20 In-Colors

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have the 2018-2020 In-Colors … a reminder that these pretty colors will hit the discontinuing list in a few weeks!!  We will be saying good-bye to Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel …

Each card is stamped with it’s coordinating color and embossed with the Lovely Floral embossing folder (DISCONTINUED) … Sorry!!

I know many of you have told me these are some of your favorite colors because they are so close to the basic / primary colors.  I’m going to keep reminding everyone that NOW is the time to get your colors … and don’t forget the ink refills … you will want them and you won’t want to find them on ebay later for 10x the price!

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 definitely 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 going to miss this color pallet … it’s new and fresh and complimented our color line.

If you haven’t wandered over to the CLEARANCE RACK yet … you might want to hurry, some of them goodies are going fast.  These are sold at discounts up to 60%.  The retirement list is on it’s way but some items will not be discounted.

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!!

 

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

Simply Sunday: Shine Bright

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed you yesterday, no issues … just took the day off.  With the holidays coming up and new staff to train, I don’t get too many days off lately, but I did spend the morning stamping with my Stamp Clubs … a little holiday gathering.  Cookies, hot chocolate, more sweets and of course stamping, and today I’m going to share with you a simple card that we made using the Shine Bright bundle.

The Shine Bright Bundle includes the Shine Bright Cling Stamp Set and the Jolly Season Dies. You can create custom die-cut Christmas trees, stars, and holly boughs in record time using the Stitched Brightly Dies.

On our first card, we only used the die strip that has the trees which were cut in Garden Green.  I began with a 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece and ran it through my die cut machine.  Then I trimmed each tree piece down to 2-3/4″ x 2″. We matted the tree with Very Vanilla cardstock but before we attached it … we painted a little Wink of Stella in the center so it would show through the tree … so subtle but pretty.

Our background comes from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper … it features traditional toile designs in classic Christmas colors–the perfect paper for a cozy Christmas.  There are 12 sheets of designer paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  This paper is so pretty … our greeting was stamped inside!

We used the pattern with the sleigh and carolers … now you can see why we did not want to cover any of this pretty paper up, even with a greeting!

This bundle can do so much more, so for the next few days, I will be sharing additional samples with you. It unfortunately is on the discontinued list … but, if you purchase this bundle through me, you will not only get your Virtual Rewards point but you’ll receive a Hand Stamped Thank you card from me along with a special little gift.

Please let me know if you have any questions … I’ll be back tomorrow with another beautiful card that is totally different from todays! You’ve got to love the versitility.

Thank  you for joining me … Have an amazing day!

Simply Sunday: Card Parade …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Where did the weekend go? Can’t believe it is Sunday already, however it’s the perfect time to grab a cup of coffee and kick back and join me in a review of many of my favorite cards.  These cards highlight the stamp sets, designer paper, vellums and accessories that are on the “Discounted” retiring list.

We all enjoy a discount of our favorite items, and I am thrilled that Stampin’ Up! has chosen some of our favorites to discount.  If you are on a budget, as I mentioned yesterday … you may also want to stock up on your cardstock as there will be a price increase in the new catalog.

Let’s begin with a little fun from one of my Stampin’ Retreats …

I created these cute little apron boxes simply by making a little box and gluing the die cut apron to the front and the back. The Stampin’ Up! logo actually came from the grid paper!

My next sample comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set …

Along with the Beautiful Day stamp set, this card showcases the Brusho Crystal Colours which are also discounted.  If you’d like to see the Step by Step instructions for this card … CLICK HERE.

Oh, oh, oh … do you love lace? If so, I have the perfect specialty paper, the Delightfully Detailed paper …

Woooo … this Laser Cut specialty paper makes card making so easy!  CLICK HERE to view 3 more samples using the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper. You will enjoy seeing the different styles you can create with this paper.

It’s always sad to see one of your favorites leaving, but it’s pretty awesome when you can get it on a discount. This card was created using Vellum cardstock and the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits …

Once the dragonfly was cut out, I sponged the color on the back and I added the sparkle with the Irridescent Ice embossing powder … that has been discontiued but you can easily use a little glue and our Dazzling Diamonds – it looks amazing!

I’m happy to tell you that the next card share I have for you has double the rewards; the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer paper and the Happy Birthday Thinlits dies are discounted!

This cute and simple card was created with the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer paper as the background and the Happy Birthday cut from the thinlits die … it is highlighted by adding a piece of vellum behind it which pops the greeting while still allowing the designer paper to show through!

Another popular die set is the Hometown Greetings thinlets that coordinated with the Hearts Come Home stamp set. I actually used the “Hearts Come Home for Christmas” as my theme for the Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat. Here are some of our cards …

Oh my gosh … this was a fun card to create. CLICK HERE if you want more information on how I made this card.

Here is another favorite that makes me sad that it’s on the Discontinued List; Large Letters Framelits Dies.  I’m sure you’ll agree with me that the creative possibilities are endless with these dies. My fav is the amazing technique: The Eclipse Technique

Although I used the cat punch, the technique is to cut an image and pop it up above the area punched, the Large Letters Framelits are famous for this technique. The “celebrate” from the “Celebrate You thinlits dies are also discounted! Check out my never seen before Eclipse Card done with the Large Letters dies …

These dies have a permanent home in my crafting arsenal for sure 🙂  Are they in yours?

Are you ready to make your Christmas cards in July… many do, and you may want to add these next two to your shopping list; the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set (Wood Mount Only/Discounted) and the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies…

So, so, so pretty! And if that wasn’t enough … I have another amazing set of card samples for you, using the Starlight Thinlits dies…

If you are not ready for Christmas and are in need of a little lift, may I suggest the Up and Away Thinlits dies, perfect for graduations and more …

How about one more? This little beauty comes from the Window Box thinlit dies …

We made this at one of my retreats, a sweet little box perfect for gift giving, and it’s a gift in itself!  There are sooo many more items on this discounted list, so I have added a listing of the items below.

Thank you so very much for taking time out of your weekend and joining me for this card parade.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ~

 Last one … Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies / Simply Beautiful ❤

Bowing out “Graceful” …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with a the card I promised a while back from the Graceful Glass designer vellum.  The beautiful stained glass imagery is perfect for coloring… and I used the Stampin’ Blends.  Because it’s vellum paper you can create stunning stained-glass effects with it!  The Graceful Glass has 24 vellum sheets: 2 each of 12 single-sided designs.  These are the samples from Stampin’ Up! …

And now … my creation, and probably my last from the Graceful Glass designer vellum since it is retiring in only a few more days.

I did not add the greeting to the front of my card as I wanted to showcase the beautiful design of the vellum.  This would make a beautiful birthday card, a sympathy card or what ever you choose.  I chose a very spring-like color them with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo – Light, and Mossy Meadow.

I used the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add some texture to the card and create interest to the eye. I enjoy using the entire bundle … the dies coordinate nicely with this vellum.

I thank you for sharing a part of your day with me and checking out my blog.

Have a beautiful day ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope this day finds you well … and I wish all you ladies out there a Happy Mothers Day… we all nurture in some way or another. Today I have the perfect stamp set to celebrate women everywhere; the Serene Garden stamp set.  I find this stamp set simply stunning and I just had to have it. It has a bit of that Art Deco flair so I did it in black and white and a touch of pink …

The whispy flow of the greenery really draws your eye to the card and it was colored using the Stampin’ Blends … same with the flowers, they were gently colored with the Petal Pink duo to create some depth.  I colored the butterfly the same way and cut it out with the coordinating die. Let’s not forget that Wink of Stella … that is what gives the flowers and butterfly that beautiful sparkle.

The entire piece was popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals and the greeting comes from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.

I am sad that this beautiful stamp set, Serene Garden will be retiring in less than a month. Stop back tomorrow, I have another card I’d like to share with you that my clubs did this month.

Till then, enjoy your day! Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit with me.

Retiring Lists ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I decided to put a temporary hold on our OnStage antics because the Retirement List came out yesterday, however there seems to be a bit of confusion because they are listed many stamp sets not because the actual set is leaving but the “wood” and “clear” mounts are being discontinued for the new Cling Mount.

It’s that time of year when we have to say goodbye to some products, but we can help them go out with a bang! These products may be leaving our store, but make sure they aren’t out of your life! Whether it’s a die or a bundle that you’ve been waiting to buy, now’s the perfect time to add it to your collection.

Edited Occasions Catalog Retiring List

Edited Annual Catalog Retirement List

Please remember that a retiring “bundle” does not necessarily mean the stamp set or dies are retiring … Bundles do not carry over, so if you want to save the 10%, you would need to purchase it before June 3rd (or while supplies last).

If you have any questions, please contact me below or through email: lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com  I would be happy to help you make the best decision for you.

All week long I will be sharing highlights and sneak peeks from the upcoming catalog… I will see you there!

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me, I love the visits!

 

 

 

Time to say Good-bye …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As many of you know, I am headed to Minneapolis this weekend for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event!!  This is where we will get the NEW 2019-20 Annual Catalog and a first hand look at some of the new products.  I am so excited … I saw a sneak peek of the cover from demonstrators who are at the OnStage Live in Auckland, New Zealand!!! I found my first new love!!

But … with the new, means there will be some of our favorites leaving including some very standard products we use everyday.  Although they have been tried and true for me, I’m not mourning the loss, because I’m excited to see what will be coming down the road.

First up … Our Cutting . There will not be a replacement in the new catalog but there is a new product in the works and will be released when it is up to Stampin’ Up!s quality standards (I LOVE THAT).

The same goes for our BigShot … yes it is leaving BUT there will be dies and embossing folders that remain!! Wooo Hooo.  You know I’ll be shouting that from the roof tops when this new product is announced.

Don’t forget your retiring In-Colors … get those BEFORE the Retirement List comes out on the 15th of April.  I will have all then news for you when that arrives as well.

Sorry I put today’s card on hold … but I felt this was important news that I had to share.  I will be back tomorrow with my “Fun in the Sun” card!!

Till then, have a great day and thank you for stopping by today.
