Hello Stampin’ friends!
When I got my hands on the New 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog, I knew right away what I had to have! For those of you who come to my annual Kick-Off party, you know I have a “My Favorite Stamp Set Contest” … and I still will, but I couldn’t wait to share this product with you!
The BIGSHOT … just like the Lone Ranger, now has a side kick you can’t be without! Meet Tonto!
The new Stampin’ Up! Magnetic Platform for Framelits & Edgelits (130658)
No more post-it notes since the magnet easily holds them in place! I can’t wait to get my hands on it, because you all know… I love my framelits!
Watch the video from Stampin’ Up! to see how easy it really works!
Now, you’ll need a cute idea to use with the new magnetic platform, here is a beautiful card that I received from one of my Star’s members Brenda Morateck! I just love the neutral color pallet on this card, it works well with the “COLLAGE” Technique she used.
The “Secret Garden” stamp set (page 94) and coordinating framelits (page 187) were used to create this card. Some of you will recognize the greeting as coming from the awesome stamp set “Lacy & Lovely” on page 117.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post, and my “Lone Ranger” reference …
You know I’ll be going to see Johnny Depp as Tonto!
Hello Stampers ~
Today I am sharing a simply beautiful card created with the “By the Tide” stamp set from the Spring Catalog.
I am excited to say that this versatile stamp set will carry over into the NEW 2013-14 Idea Book and Catalog!
I love to layer white on white, it sets up the card with a great foundation. Don’t forget to give the first layer of white a “lift” by using stampin’ dimensionals… they are definitely a necessity in any stampin’ kit!
The combination of a simple greeting “so kind of you” from the “Sweet Essentials” stamp set with the single shell from the “By the Tide” stamp set created this beautiful card.
The addition of texture to the card using the “Houndstooth Folder” really sets off the accent of the Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. As you can see, I only partially embossed the card to create a more dramatic effect.
Every now and then we all look for an easy to make, yet beautiful card. I hope this fulfilled that need for you.
If you enjoyed this card, please leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you!
Today’s post is great “Man Card”… done by guest stamper and my upline Vicki Towell.
When I saw this fish in the “By the Tide” stamp set in the Spring Catalog, I just had to have it. I knew the fish would make great man cards, not to mention the rest of the set which would create an awesome scrapbook page.
The background is stamped with VersaMark™ onto Crumb Cake cardstock. The fish “popped” up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals are stamped in Chocolate Chip (with coordination cardstock used as card back). Just a touch from the White Gel Pen is what brought the eyes to life. Don’t forget to brush on some “Crystal Effects” onto the shell!
You’ll find the greetings from the “One in a Million” stamp set in the 2012-13 Idea Book & Catalog on page 135.
Back to the Spring Catalog for the beautiful embellishments added to the card … Basic Designer Buttons and Natural Trim Ribbon both found on page 20.
