Simply Sunday: Carols of Christmas

Hello Stampin Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a card from our “Carols of Christmas” stamp set that will be available to our stampin’ friends as an early release on August 1st.

Demonstrators have been able to pre-order this set since the 1st of July so we can prepare great samples / classes for you… mine is on it’s way!

This is a perfect card when you want to step it up a bit with die cuts but not have to spend all day on one card.  I would cut my trees and greeting out at the same time!

The greeting itself is done simply by coloring the stamp with the colors you want and then stamp. A little strip of glimmer paper and a bow out of bakers twine and you’re done!!

My initial “Carols of Christmas” Class has already filled but I would be happy to schedule a second class for those who are interested.

Thanks for stopping in to see me today.

Have a wonderful day ~

Beetles & Bugs Stamp Set …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you some really cute cards from one of our 2017 Artisan Design Team members; Shannon Lane.  Shannon took a stamp set that I didn’t look twice at and created these really cute cards that make me want this stamp set: Beetles & Bugs!

I’m not really into bugs, but Shannon takes this to a whole new level with her first project.  She said “Combined with the Hardwood Background Stamp (item 133035), making this display of (faux!) mounted bugs was so easy! Stamping the beetles was a blast; each piece lined up so perfectly and it was quick and easy to do.”

Next Shannon has a birthday card with a bright collage of beetles …

Thank you so much for stopping by today; I really hope Shannon’s cards inspired you to create with the fun stamp set full of bugs! Who knew.

And Thank You Shannon Lane, our 2017 Artisan Design Team member for sharing the fun and coloroful cards. They really are Cute as a Bug!

Have a great day!

So In Love … Happy Anniversary

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the “So In Love” bundle, what did you think? Pretty right!

Well today I’m going to share a simply beautiful card that I created using the “So In Love” bundle. I began with with the largest of the dies and knew I just wanted it to highlight my designer paper.

I knew I was going to use the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so I chose the Very Vanilla cardstock as my base and cardstock to be die cut. I used the Precision Base Plate and die brush to cut and discard of the inner pieces with ease.

Next, I layered my designer paper onto my base, and then my die cut piece onto the designer paper.  I then added my “Happy Anniversary” greeting which I stamped in Crumb Cake on my banner.  I added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment to anchor my banner and create and eye catching effect.

How simple, and how pretty is this.  You could use this card layout with so many of our pretty designer papers, and there are plenty more greetings to use in this stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed … Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day!

So In Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post but it’s packed full of stampin’ tips and samples from the So In Love bundle. We’re going to start with a video …

Carrie, from the training team at Stampin’ Up!, shares some beautiful project ideas and tips for using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies from the 2017 occasions catalog.

I also want to share some additional projects that were created with this fabulous bundle …

Here you can see the foliage stamp was used to create the background, then the flower was added to compliment the foliage and add some dimension.  A pretty bow and an banner with the “just for you” greeting completes this card. 

Look at the jar in the background … it was wrapped with one of the delicate bands created from the dies. Below the die cut band was used again to turn this simple bag into a beautiful gift bag.

If you love pretty, delicate items … this is the bundle for you.  I can image all sorts of beautiful cards and gift packages that you could make for Wedding’s, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day … or a special friend.

Simply Sunday: That’s the Tag

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a simple and easy cards for you that delights the eyes with our beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper. The possibilities are endless when you teams this designer paper with the “That’s the Tag” Bundle!

On the first card I chose the “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper that had the delicate flower pattern. The color is Sahara Sand so I used Very Vanilla as my base and my tag.  I stamped the tag with the oval dot pattern and the thanks from the “That’s the Tag” stamp set from the bundle of the same name.

I then added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishments from the Falling in Love suite. I placed them to align with the pattern on the paper and to anchor the greeting. Simple!

000_3949

My next card, I again used the “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper but chose the “Bokeh” style paper. Bokeh, which is pronounced bow-kay or bow-keh, refers to the wonderful out-of-focus light and shapes. The color pallet on my card is Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.

000_3954

On our first card we used the simple oval tag for our greeting, on this card we stepped it up with the pretty flower die cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  Oh so pretty!

Again, the greeting comes from the bundle and I created a simple banner and then backed it with a touch of the glimmer paper to make the greeting pop.

000_3958

Simple cards to make but dramatic in texture and design. I hope you enjoyed today’s cards … I will be back with more of the items we used today.  You can see a list below.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your Sunday to visit me.

Have a wonderful day ~
