Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

At times during the month I have shared with you several beautiful cards from our Snowflake Showcase made with the stamp sets and dies.  I’ve loved working with this showcase of products and I’m sharing all of them with you today.   *Today is also the last day your can purchase any items in this product suite.

Love this card because I created it with the left overs … 

 

Don’t you just love the red card … it reminds me of a sweater! (lol … don’t ask me why?) The cute floral card was created with the Happiness Surrounds stamp set. And count me in for the watercolor background with the tree!!

 

Another from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set that is truly delightful and fun. The colors just pop!

 

Simple and Elegant in Very Vanilla and Gold … sheer Christmas.

 

This is my friends Margarete’s card … so beautiful and airy. I just love it and so happy she allowed me to share it with you.

 

This was one of my favorite cards that I designed for our  2018 Holiday Stamping Retreat … This is the card that generated the “scraps” that I used on the card at the beginning of the “parade of cards” …

 

Could not make a card sample without using the snowflake swoosh … it is one of the main reasons I had to have this die set (and coordinating stamp sets). 

 

Another card created with the Happiness Surround’s stamp set (lol … spelled it wrong on my card) This one was fun, we made it in my Advanced Stamparatus Class but it was easy to make!!

 

I could not let this day go by without sharing all these lovely cards with all of you who have purchased this showcase of products, and to remind everyone that today is the last day, so if you love it … don’t let it go.  It is gone for good after midnight tonight.


Thank you for joining me for my Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help placing your order.

Have a wonderful day … let’s kick off the weekend right!

Here are the products available in the Snowflake Showcase ….

 

 

Two for Tuesday: Snowflake Showcase

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m thrilled to show you this amazing new product suite …

Today I’ll be sharing 2 beautiful cards with you along with pictures of the product so you can see for yourself how amazing this is.

Snowflake Showcase isn’t just for winter, these products are perfect for year round. Don’t believe me? Shannon West, from the Riverton home office, is here to show you how Snowflake Showcase is perfect for everyone.

Amazing right!! First card I have is from the Snow is Glistening stamp set (149742) …

You can’t have this amazing stamp set without the coordinating dies, which by the way, coordinate with BOTH stamp sets!!

The second card is from the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set (149744) …

I am always looking for stamps and die sets that work for more than one season, it just makes sense and a better investment. I also fell for the fonts … they are fun and readable greetings and salutations.

And, if you’re like me, you like to grab up those coordinating embellishments. The cute Snowflake Trinkets are simply lovely …

The Snowflake Trinkets are a great way to embellish your cards, or your ears, neck … are you catching this? They are so cute … why not make jewelry out of them. Embellish a gift package with them, Christmas is just around the corner!!

AND … if you are a paper junkie like I am (Three sheets short of being declared a hoarder – LOL) You are simply going to FLIP over this new White Velvet Paper!! It is so cool and of course, velveteen to the touch.

I feel head over heels for the Snowflake Showcase and will be introducing it to my Retreat Attendee’s this weekend, but don’t feel left out, I have a special card to share with you tomorrow!!

I will also be hosting a class or two, I just need to figure out the details, so keep your eyes open and make sure you are on my mailing list. YOU will NOT want to miss this one!!  This showcase will be available to order November 1st through the 30th or while supplies last.

Thank you so much for joining me this Tuesday, be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what I did this this set so far.

Have a wonderful day ~

Guest Stamper: Kathie D.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Looks like summer is upon us!!  I actually had my air conditioner on yesterday and will put the second one in upstairs today!! I believe in being comfortable when I’m at home and I don’t like to sweat … so, if this is going to be my cleaning weekend, I’m putting in the air!!  AND … the sooner I get done with my cleaning – I can get to my stamping and play with all the new stuff I have (yes, I’ve still got a BIG Wish List when the catalog comes out next week)!

Well on with the good stuff … Yesterday I told you I had something good planned and I do, today I’m sharing the WINNING Card from the All Attendee Card Swap at our Annual Spring Retreat! Our winner is chosen by votes collected by the attendee’s themselves. Here is Kathie’s winning card …

Kathie’s stunning card was created with the Flourish Thinlits Dies and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder … got to love that BigShot!!  Kathie gently brought the floral piece around the opening / greeting.  Not sure if Kathie used the punch or circle framelits create the circle but it adds a beautiful layer of dimension.

The floral piece was also embellished with our pearls and it adds a little more dimension and elegance. Our them was “Cards to show we Care” and this one is beautiful!! This layout would work well for any occasion from Wedding, to announce a new baby to Sympathy.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed Kathie’s card as much as we all did at the Stampin’ Retreat…. it is stunning!

Have yourself a fabulous day today … and enjoy the holiday weekend.

 

Totally Techniques … “Beautiful You”

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share a card with you from my March Technique Club… it’s totally full of fun techniques. 

Here is the third and last card from my Creating Backgrounds Class using the  “Beautiful You” stamp set.  I begin with the “Delicate Details” stamp set that is in our Sale-a-bration catalog.  I aligned the stamps by laying the large block onto the Grid Paper – that way I was sure they were all straight.

Then it’s inked up with the VersaMark ink … you’ll have to stamp twice because the stamps are spaced closer together.  Once your cardfront is stamped you emboss with CLEAR embossing powder. We are doing the “Emboss Resist” technique.

For the color … I’m also incorporating the “Ombre” technique. The colors are Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.  I used a Sponge Dauber to apply my ink. (this works best when you start “off” your cardstock and work your way into the card. Blending of these colors is easy and very pretty.

For our lady … she was stamped with the Momento Ink and then colored with the Wink of Stella pen and Bermuda Bay ink refill.  This marvelous pen works just similar to the Aquapainter but with sparkle is included!!  If you have the “clear” pen, like I used here” … you can create as many colors as you have ink refills.  Love this!!  No need to go out and buy different colored Wink of Stella pens, by using the Stampin’ Up! ink refill, you have the perfect way to add that coordinating sparkle ❤ 

Here’s a tip … you could also use the Watercolor Pencils to color your image and then go over it with the Wink of Stella.

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me, hope your day is a good one.

If you purchase the “Beautiful You” stamp set along with the Wink of Stella and the Watercolor Pencils – you can get the “Delicate Details” stamp set for FREE! Purchase any combination of products below and receive the trio of cards when your qualify for our Sale-a-bration item!  Click on the images below! 

 

 

Live * Laugh * Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Here today to share another card from the “Beautiful You” stamp set with a focus on creating backgrounds.  This is card 2 of my trio. The background on this card was created by “Masking” and sponging. Again, going back to basics. Simple yet dramatic.

First we stamped the lady in the lower left hand corner of our card, then we placed the “circle mask” in the upper right hand corner. Using the Soft Sky ink pad, we inked up our sponge and dragged it across the cardstock and mask to create the background. Leaving some white space gives you the illusion of clouds. Remove mask. Stamp greeting.

Then we used Sahara Sand for the lower part of the card. This was mounted onto Basic Black and then “popped up” with dimensionals onto the Sahara Sand card base.

I tried coloring the image but did not like it, so I just used my Wink of Stella brush to color her dress and umbrella! Subtle but very effective.  I think if I would have tried using the new “Watercolor Pencils” … it would have turned out, I used the markers and they were too bold for the rest of the card.

Thank You for stopping by today, hope to see you back again tomorrow for my Simply Sunday series.

Have a beautiful day ~

Simply Sunday: Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back today with this simple and beautiful card that you can easily recreate for you friends and family. If you have some larger strips of designer paper, don’t throw it away … use it!  Here is a simple way you can whip up a card…

000_4133

I began with my designer paper; the Falling in Love designer paper and because I wanted to highlight the designer paper, I teamed it up with the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I also added a touch of the new Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack you can get for FREE from your Sale-a-bration purchase.

If your not into glimmer paper, I thought I would add a touch of lace which comes from the Delicate Details stamp set that is also a Sale-a-bration item and stamped in with Sweet Sugarplum which coordinates with the designer paper and the glimmer paper.

Our greeting comes from the Special Reason stamp set … and cut out from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies from the bundle.

Sweet -n- Simple … that’s how we like our cards!  Thank you for visiting me this Sunday. Hope to see you back tomorrow with another card share.

Have a wonderful day !

Good Friends Like You Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing the second card that our Technique Club made in our February meeting.  If you recall, we did the “Peek Through” technique. The layout is almost the same as the card I shared with the new glimmer paper …

000_4101

We began with a Whisper White base and cut our flower into the Night of Navy.  Our second flower was cut out from So Saffron.  Both used the Precision Base Plate on the BigShot.

We also used the stamp set more on this card as we used not only the greeting but stamped a smaller flower and a leaf as well. Because the small flower, greeting die and leaf are all open dies (not detailed like the flowers) we used the Magnetic Plate. All of the images cut out used the coordinating framelits … Love them bundles!

000_4103

We tied the entire card together with the Bakers twine. I love that you can see all of the dimension on this card!  We popped up the entire Night of Navy piece along with the greeting and Saffron flower.

You can see step by step instructions on the cutting of the two main flowers on my Wednesday, Feb. 15th post. CLICK HERE TO VIEW

I  thank you for checking in on me and my blog today. Let me know if you have any questions on this awesome bundle.

Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!
