Technique Tuesday … Kissing Technique & Video

Hello Stampers ~

Today is my second post for Technique Tuesday.  I will be sharing a Stampin’ Up! video tutorial along with my card share… yes, I will have a card for you too.  I thought it would be a great way to for you to see how the technique is actually done… almost like being a member of my Technique Club.

I’m going to start with a Stampin’ Up! video that introduces you to the “Kissing Technique”.  Enjoy!

Kissing

with
Emily Montoya
Have you ever heard of the kissing technique?We’re not talking about the technique with your sweetie-we’re talking about the one with stamps! Check out this sample featured in this video, see how the butterflies have an extra texture? It’s the beautiful product of two stamps getting together!

Wasn’t that fun!  How did you like the finished cards … so cute.  Here is the card that I created using the “Kissing” Technique:

Now for my card …

I thought it would be fun to add a little “kiss” to the frosting on the cupcakes from the “Build a Cupcake” stamp set and kissed it to the “Hello Doily” stamp.  I inked up the the frosting of the cupcake and kissed it to the Doily to create the neat pattern you see.

000_0905

Of course I then had to pull out the coordinating punch “Cupcake Builder”. Ahhh, so much easier than cutting them out.  My color pallet for today comes from the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper: Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar … with a touch of Strawberry Slush added in!

I added a touch of the Retro Fresh DSP and topped it off with the Coastal Cabana Ruffled Stretch Ribbon.  Speaking of “topping” things off… I colored 3 of the larger pearls with a red Sharpie, and the put them on my cupcakes.

Finally, my greeting comes from the Perfectly Penned stamp set.  I don’t know what I will do when they retire that set… I use it all the time!

Hope you take the time out of your busy day for a little kissing 🙂

Thanks for checking out my blog today!  Check out below for a list of today’s ingredients.

Wishin’ you a terrific Tuesday!

From Christmas to Valentine’s Day …

Hi Stampin’ Friends,

Woo Hoo … this will be a quick post today, I have the pleasure of shoveling out about 5 – 6 inches of snow … Yippee!

Enough about that white stuff, I wanted to share with you a Paper Pumpkin project that I did just the other day.  With this fabulous opportunity to get FREE Markers when you sign up, I just wanted you to get a good feel of these fun stampin’ projects.

This was the November project that was delivered to my door (well … mailbox)

000_0620

Ohhhh so pretty.  I love it because I don’t have a sewing machine, so the only way anyone is going to see something sewn from me is on a card from Paper Pumpkin – LOL!

I’m not sure if I mentioned this yesterday … but Stampin’ Up! also puts out a video that coordinates with your Paper Pumpkin!  They’re short, cute, and give you a quick view on how to make the project.  Remember, they give you full color directions in your kit too.

OK … so I was playing around with my November Paper Pumpkin and came up with this …

000_0622

What do you think?  All I did was take one of those left over hearts from another project and added it to the card!  And a greeting.

I really would like to hear what you think of the Paper Pumpkin projects that I have shown you so far.  If you would like to sign up … here is the link again.

Have yourself an awesome day!

Hello my stampin’ friends ~

Today I want to share with you the “carry over” stamp sets that are not in the catalog but are still available to order.  You guessed it, its Christmas sets!  Plus, I’ll share some of the beautiful cards we made last year at my clubs, classes and the annual Holiday retreat!!

CLICK HERE TO VIEW / DOWNLOAD CARRY-OVER LIST

 First, is the “Ornament Keepsakes” stamp set (128048 – W / 128051 – C) and the beautiful greetings from “Greetings of the Season” (128030 – W / 128033 – C) 

101_1251

I used the “Coordinations Cardstock as a background, a Cherry Cobbler banner that draws your eye to our focal point … the ornament!  I then embellished with scraps (you got it) of the Silver Glimmer Paper (124005) and top it off with those precious “gotta have” Rhinestones (119246)

 

Next, the fabulous Two-Step Stamp Set, “Evergreen” (127970 – W / 127973 – C) You can make this with Always Artichoke and the NEW Pear Pizzazz or go wild and choose another color scheme!

Last but definitely not least … 2 great samples from the stunning “Snowflake Soiree” (127922 – W / 127925 – C) stamp set.  The first is done in a soft neutrals pallet… Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake.  It’s such a warm greeting for the holiday season.  I used a brad from one of my favorite embellishments; “Vintage Brads” to tie the card together!

101_1249

The second is so simple, yet simply beautiful.  A very festive card when done in Whisper White and the simply delicious Cherry Cobbler!

Friends are the flowers …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I wanted to share a scrapbook page with you.  It is one that I did with my Scrapbook Club last year.

September kicks off my 2013-14 club sessions, and it’s so great to see all my stampin’ friends again!  We may start out as strangers at the beginning of the year, but by the end … we have made new friends.  Oh yes, and we have learned some fabulous stampin’ techniques too!

My color pallet for this page was inspired by nature.  Next time you go to the Farmers Market or grocery store, take a close look at the colors … this page was inspired by an eggplant.  I used Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive … and think they look beautiful together.

000_0202

The beautiful stamp used comes from the “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set found on page 118 of our Idea Book & Catalog.  I began with stamping Old Olive ink onto the Old Olive Cardstock … color on color produces a rich and beautiful image.  If you prefer a more subtle image… you can use your VersaMark® pad instead.

I then stamped my image, using the Old Olive onto the white cardstock to really make the image POP!  To highlight the flowers on the stamp, I punched out flowers the “Boho Blossoms” punch.  The Boho Blossom punch can be found on page 183 in the Idea Book & Catalog.

000_0202-B

To add some fun dimension to my flowers … I hold them in the palm of my hand and the push the tip of a pen into the center.  It curls up the petals and leaves a perfect mark for me to place my rhinestone.

Using the rhinestones ( pg.171 / 119246) finishes off the page so perfectly.  This page could be used for “friends”, for a wedding page, your grandmother or mother …. for almost any occasion, and how beautiful.

000_0202

I just used my computer and “Word” to create the verse on the page … each of the white squares are 3 x 3, except for the center and the Elegant Eggplant mat which measures 3-1/4 x 3-1/4.

Don’t forget, you can take this scrapbook page and turn it into a card.  Inspiration for our cards, scrapbook pages and for our color pallets can come from anywhere…. just stop and take a look around you.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Layered Brayer Technique

Hello …

Oh my, weekends seem to pass so quickly!  I have been busy preparing for my Hostess / Customer Appreciation and Kick-Off Party.  I invite all my hostesses from the past Stampin’ Up! year to join me for dinner and a little bit of “spoiling”.  Hostesses qualify for this exclusive event by having a stampin’ party or they are in one of my clubs.

I have all types of clubs: scrapbooking (2 – 12 x 12 pages), techniques (most popular / 2 cards and a 6 x 6 technique sheet) and stamp-n-scrap (they make a card and 1 – 12 x 12 page).  I am currently filling my clubs for the upcoming 2013-14 stampin’ year.  We begin in September and go through June… we meet only 1 night a month.  I have weeknight, and Saturday clubs.

Membership includes your Make-n-Takes, all main and seasonal catalogs, club only specials / discounts, and an invitation to my hostess only appreciation dinner.

Here is one of the techniques my members have done in the past:

Layered Brayer

Directions:

1) Heat emboss your chosen images on Glossy White card stock using VersaMark ink and Clear Stampin’ Emboss powder. Bold images work best for this technique.

2) Ink your brayer with a light color of ink, and bray your card stock.

3) Use a sticky note or scrap paper cut to desired shapes and sizes to cover portions of your card stock.
online_training_030
4) Ink your brayer with a darker color of ink, and bray your card stock again.

5) Repeat process if extra layers desired.

6) Remove paper scraps and wipe embossed images to remove excess ink.

online_training_038

Let me know if you are interested in joining one of my clubs, or get your friends together (min. 8 – max.12) and I’ll do which type of club you and your friends are interested in.

Dress Up Day …

Hello Stampers ~

It’s that time of year … prom, graduations, weddings and more!  So, I have the perfect scrapbook page for the girlie side.

I created this page for my “Stamp-n-Scrap” club.  Once I got my hands on the “Dress Up” framelit dies (130101) I fell in love with them… like a little girl with her first Barbie!  It’s dress up day!

102_0966

The “Polka Dot Parade” (126902) Designer Series Paper made it easy for dress up, as did the beautiful pearls (119247) used to “accessorize”.  I borrowed the tulle as an item of the last Holiday Catalog for the little black dress.  The used the “Apothecary Accents” framelit (127003) die to create an illusion of a mirror.  My base colors used are Basic Black and Sahara Sand.

102_0965

To draw your eye around the page, I stamped the beautiful images from the “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set: (C – 126367 / W – 131998).  I think it suits this page so nice… Perfect for a Sweet 16 page!  What do you think?

To balance out the page, the banners were added using the “Polka Dot Parade” Designer Series Paper.  The page is now ready for your pictures.  Choose your layout … and don’t forget to journal.

Here’s a tip:  If this is your daughters Sweet 16 or prom page, let them write down their thoughts for the special event.  Then in years to come those thoughts will trigger the precious memories of that day!

Enjoy your day!

Summer’s Coming…

Hello Stampers ~

Today I wanted to share a fun scrapbook page I did a while back, but he is so cute I had to share!

crabscrapbookpage

Such a quick and easy page to do.  You will need the Extra Large (119859) Oval Punch, the Large (119855) Oval Punch, and the Owl Builder (118074) Punch …. I used that for his eyes.  You will also need the 1″ Square (124094) Punch to create his legs and punch the ovals to make his claws!  I used circle and star punches to create the sun.

Although the alphabet used to create my title is no longer available… I suggest the “Notable Alphabet” – it’s fun and would look great on this page.

132047S

The waves are created using your favorite blue tones: I suggest Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, and Bermuda Bay!  Even sounds like the ocean!  The background (sky) is the tempting turquoise and the sand … Crumb Cake that was sponged to make it look more like sand.

Tear and layer the remaining blue tones and sponge the edges with Whisper White Craft Ink to create the illusion of waves.  I also gently sponged the clouds with the White Craft Ink.

Simply Scored Spring Flowers …

Hello Stampers ~

I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather we have finally received!  I see many facebook posts about getting your gardens in, so I thought I would share this pretty bouquet of flowers with you!

100_5322

I took this picture at the 2011 Stampin’ Up! National Convention who’s theme that year was “GROW”… so what better way to convey the “grow” message than with flowers!  They are so pretty and they spread cheer to anyone receiving them, and my guess, to the givers too.

They are quite simple to make… just get out your Simply Score Tool (122334) and your favorite Designer Series Papers or cardstock!

Accordion-folded Flower

Directions:

1) Cut card stock or Designer Series paper to 12″ x 3/4″.

2) Score strip every 1/4″ the entire length of the card stock and accordion fold the score lines.

SAB09_techniquee_1

3) Adhere ends of card stock together (Sticky Strip works best).

SAB09_techniquee_2

4) Holding the card stock with two hands, twist one edge of the strip into the center as shown to create a flower shape.

SAB09_techniquee_3

5) To hold the flower together, I use a hot glue gun and my Silicon Craft Sheet (127853) to hold shape in place.  Just add a dot of hot glue directly onto your Silicon sheet and press the center of your flower into it.  It’s soo cool … it just lifts right off and holds your flower firm.

6) Adhere a punched circle to the flower center on one or both sides.

Tip:Experiment with different sizes and score intervals to create the desired shape of your flower.

Have fun … and feel free to send me photos of your creations!  I would love to see them.

Next, the fabulous Two-Step Stamp Set, “Evergreen” (127970 – W / 127973 – C) You can make this with Always Artichoke and the NEW Pear Pizzazz or go wild and choose another color scheme!

Last but definitely not least … I’ve got two great samples from the stunning “Snowflake Soiree” (127922 – W / 127925 – C) stamp set.  The first is done in a soft neutrals pallet… Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake.  It’s such a warm greeting for the holiday season.  I used a brad from one of my favorite embellishments; “Vintage Brads” to tie the card together!

The second is so simple, yet simply beautiful.  A very festive card when done in Whisper White and the simply delicious Cherry Cobbler!
