It’s just Meant to Be …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a parade of cards for you that were created with the “Meant to Be” Bundle …   We will begin simply with ink, paper and stamps.  This is how most of us began our stamping adventures.

 

Our next card showcases the technique of stamping your own background.  A touch of foil paper to make the card pop and you’ve got another cute card…

 

Now it’s time to add a bit of designer paper to your stamps and ink, and who said hearts were only for Valentine’s … Why heck, just think marriage, anniversary, new baby, and friendship …

 

Let’s step it up just a bit more and add some beautiful designer vellum and some heart dies (and flowers) to add a touch of class to your card. This card is so simple when you pull out your BigShot and dies … quick -n- beautiful.

 

Let’s have some fun now … since we’re using the BigShot, let’s pull out the Gingham paper and use those hearts to say I love you …

 

Wow … now we have the BigShot out, then we’ll add some cute designer paper and we’ll add edgelits and while we’re at it, I’m going to grab the triple banner punch, because banners are hot right now!! Oh yes, and it’s a cute way to add a greeting!

 

Oh now we’re really having FUN … we’ve got the stamps, the ink, the paper … and designer paper, and FOIL and our dies.  Well, why not run one of those die cut hearts through the BigShot and emboss it with one of our pretty embossing folders.  If you have it in your supplies … why not use it!!

 

WOW … and why create only cards? Make a cute little gift box using the Window Box thinlits, the hearts and some stamping.

 

So look at all the fabulous cards and gifts you can create with the Meant to Be bundle in the Occasions Catalog.  Don’t forget that we are in our last month of Sale-a-bration and for each $50 you purchase, you qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!!  Wooo Hooo.


So … are you ready to add this versatile bundle to your stamping collection?  If so, just go to the bottom of the page and click on the product bundle, that will take you right to my stamping store.

And as always, I reward my stampin’ friends with a Virtual Rewards point for each $50 you spend (plus your Sale-a-bration reward).

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’ SUPPLIES ….

 

Share What You Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So how are you liking the new items add to our Sale-a-bration list of goodies?

I’ve already shared card samples that have featured the Pearlized Doilies, the Petal Promenade paper (love it) and the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty paper.

Today I have a card that features the Pearlized Doilies, the Petal Promenade paper AND the tags from the “Share What You Love Embellishment Kit”.  Included in the photo is the Embellishment kit box … which I feel is a totally “giftable” box. It’s so pretty.


The delicate flowers you see on the card were actually “fussy cut” out of the designer paper and the doily was folded back and forth to create a fan effect … so cute.  This card was cased from fellow demonstrator Kim McGillis, who was also one of our Artisan stampers.

The impression on the card front was created using the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the card color pallet is …

I have another card that features a tag from the “Share What You Love Embellishment Kit”.
This one is featuring the Blackberry Bliss … so pretty, and the water coloring technique of the flower, and they were all designed to coordinate, Again yo see the lovely designer series paper.
I have an update for you as well … The Home to Roost and Lasting Lily are on “Low Inventory Status” and the following items are no longer available: the Organdy Ribbon pack, the Butterfly Elements, the Foil Sheets, Precious Parcel Card Kit and from the Sale-a-bration Coordination: the Hop Around Framelit Dies.
I guess it just goes to show how much we all love our Sale-a-bration FREEBIES … and not to wait if there is one or two that you really want. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
On a happy note … I’ll be back tomorrow with another card to share!  Thanks for dropping in on my today!
Happy Friday to you ~

I have listed to products used to make the cards above … this will allow you to choose the “Share What You Love Embellishment Kit” for FREE!!

Delightfully Detailed Parade of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a couple of my favorite cards I created using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper that is now available as a Sale-a-bration FREEBIE!!  Saturday I shared my Pool Party card with you ….

And today I have two more for you!!  This little lace beauty begins with the Delightfully Detailed Note cards (All can be found on pages 38 and 39 of the annual catalog). These note cards already have the “water wash” background so all the work is done for you! This one is the newly returned Blackberry Bliss color.

The beautiful greeting comes from the “Detailed with Love” stamp set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss and to draw your eye to the greeting I used a simple scrap piece of Very Vanilla and used the coordinating “Detailed Trio Punch” to round off the edges and punch the cute design into the ends.  The punch is bundled with the stamp set so you can save 10% on the purchase.

I finished off the envelope by stamping a cute design from the may patterns in the stamp set.

The last of the cards that I have created was for a West Bend East Graduate… those are our school colors. The greeting comes from the stamp set “High Tide” with the lighthouse.

Did you know that if you purchased the Detailed with Love Bundle, the Delightfully Detailed Note cards and either the cute Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon or the Faceted Dot that coordinate with this product suite you could get the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper for FREE! Oh yes, and the paper is Whisper White on one side (featured on the graduation card) and Very Vanilla on the other (featured on the note card).  Amazing and super versatile.

Delicately detailed laser-cut sheets. Vanilla on one side, white on the other side. Can easily be cut apart and used as accents on card fronts.

* 8 sheets: 4 each of 2 designs * 12″ x 12″

Please remember to use the Sale-a-bration number: 152840 for your Delightfully Detailed laser-cut sheets.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking in with me. I hope you enjoyed the cards. And please, let me know if you have any questions regarding this product suite. Again, you can find it on pages 38 & 39 of the annual catalog.

Have a wonderful day ~

TODAYS STAMPIN’ SUPPLY LIST …

 

 

Doily Magic …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh yes … I have been M.I.A (Missing In Action)  I’ve been working double shifts training new employee’s this week however I could not let another day past without sharing a really neat crafting tip with you.  Earlier I announced that Stampin’ Up! has added even more items to the Sale-a-Bration items you can get FREE! More good news … the ribbon is also back!!

One of the items that is now available for SAB are the beautiful Pearlized Doilies … Love these! Even gave them as part of the gift package at last years spring retreat.  This comes from fellow demonstrator Marlieke Smetsers!! Oh my gosh, this is so clever … look at all the different patterns Marlieke created using the Pearlized Doilies!! You could use them to highlight a greeting … as snowflakes … to embellish a part of your card, the possibilities are endless.

I love how you can create amazing designs with just a snip of a scissor or if you’re a stickler for precision … use your circle dies on some areas!  Here is a sample that used the Pearlized Doily ….

Just a quick reminder that Stampin’ Up! has also released coordinating dies that you can purchase for your Sale-a-bration items you got for FREE!

 

Thank you for stopping by today, I will be back tomorrow with another cute card sample for you.

Please feel free to message me any questions you may have concerning the new items added or the fabulous Sale-a-bration Coordination!

Simply Sunday: Guest Stamper … Jenny F.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card to share with you that was stamped by my friend and stampin’ sister Jenny Feider.  Jenny and I joined Stampin’ Up! the same year and were brought into the Stampin’ Up! family by Vicki Towell.  Congratulations Jenny on 19 years with Stampin’ Up!!

Eileen was also a demonstrator so in the early years before Pinterest and Facebook groups we did a lot of traveling together to meetings, stampin’ events and conventions.  So Jenny’s card was to honor Eileen and Jenny … she would have loved it!! Earthy tones and woodsy was right up her alley.

I love that Mossy Meadow came back into the color pallet … when we first started the colors were grouped into families and Eileens favorite was the Earth Elements collection.  Today’s color pallet is …

One of my favorite and techniques from way back is creating your own backgrounds by stamping color on color … it adds so much depth to the card by just simply stamping.  Jenny’s layers create interest and a true focal point … it’s just beautiful.

Thank you Jenny for the beautiful card. And I would like to thank all my stampin’ friends for the messages, emails, phone calls, beautiful cards, and for joining us yesterday to celebrate Eileen’s life.  I will be sharing more of those cards with you … they are beautiful.

Have a simply blessed day and thank you for joining me today.
