You Don’t Have to Wait until Black Friday to Enjoy Savings …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is the last day to enjoy savings on the basics like cardstock and ink pads! Plus there are 8 bundles that are on sale too … yesterday I shared many, many samples and have listed them below as well.

It’s a great time to stock up on the items you always need.  Plus, with orders of $50 or more … you will get your order shipped directly to your home, your Virtual Reward points for each $50 and a little “Thank You” gift in the mail from me!

Let’s start out with the beautiful “To a Wild Rose” Bundle …

I will be listing the details so you can see exactly what you would get (and the item number) along with samples to spark your creativity and get you stamping!

There are so many things you can do with this bundle, I have several examples to show you. Some are from my Stamping Clubs! Here you’ll see soft beautiful floral cards …

I love to use my Stampin’ Blends with this beautiful rose … I’ve used them here on the purple card (Highland Heather) so stunning!

This little beauty in Blushing Bride and Going Gray was simply sponging a hint of pink into the petals of our rose, and then using the Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.  The background was stamping our rose in Going Gray directly onto the Going Gray cardstock … a simple technique of creating your own backgrounds.

The yellow (Daffodil Delight) is actually using the two step process, stamping off for the first solid image and then inking up the detailed (line) image and stamping over it.

Here I have stamped our pretty rose (the two step stamping technique) onto the New In Colors … they are also on SALE! Both Cardstock and Ink Pads (excluding the Purple Posie ink) are on sale too.

Our next bundle in the card parade is the “Path of Petals Bundle”. This little beauty has beautiful, uplifting sentiments and stunning dies to highlight your sentiments and create a focal point on your card.

The next bundle “Parcels & Petals” where you can really stretch out your dollars as you create beautiful handmade gift boxes and then a stunning card to go with it! Just check out the samples below …

Once you create your box with your new dies … you can stamp these beautiful flowers and adorn them to your gift. So pretty …

This pretty card is simple to create by just stamping your Pear Pizzaz ink onto Pear Pizzaz cardstock (the technique we used earlier on our “To a Wild Rose” bundle.  Then with the dies, you can add some delicate embellishments behind your banner to really draw the eye to your greeting.

Next I would like to share the Memorable Mosaic Bundle …

You may also want to add the amazing Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) It’s mosaic tile designs and floral imagery with shiny, transparent accents is the “cherry on top” to this bundle! The background on this card … and the bird are from this designer paper.

Here are more samples using the Memorable Mosaic Bundle …

 

The next bundle is one of my favorites, and one of the “Top Sellers” at Stampin’ Up! This bundle is so versatile, the dies alone are worth the price … I use them over and over on so many projects and coordinate them with any other stamp set!

The first card I’m going to share with you is one of our “Make & Takes” from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage demonstrator event…

Here I created a sweet -n- simple card using the stamp set and dies …

This next card I used the “Spotlighting Technique” to highlight part of the image. It too is a simple technique and creates eye catching focal point on your card …

Again I have used the “Spotlighting Technique” but instead of stamping, I did it using the designer series paper. Talk about an easy but beautiful card …

On this card, it fussy cut out the little bird on the branch from the Bird Ballad Designer paper (149592) and teamed it up with the Laser Cut Cards & Tin (149595). *Perfect Christmas Gift for your Crafting Friends.

I’ve got to show you one more (told you this was one of my favorites!) Again, I used the designer paper, however you could use the stamp set too, these are just colored already.  Then I used the die to cut out from the background paper (also included in the Bird Ballad Designer Paper) and then put my greeting behind it.  I love that it created another layer of depth to the card … almost a 3D look!

 

Lets have some fun now! The Dino Days Bundle is great for kids … girls love them just as much as boys, and this bundle is so much fun to play with!

These guys are soooo cute, you will most definitely want to team this bundle up with the Dinoroar designer paper: 149589. This is a Stampin’ Up! card …

Here is one of the first cards I made with this bundle. This is representing a “surprise” as he pops out of the egg …

These two cards are actually “Welcome Baby” card … It’s a Girl or It’s a Boy! How cute and unique are these, perfect for the dino lovers in your tribe.

A Dino Birthday card is next … sweet -n- simple!

 

Here is one of my favorites that I made with this bundle. I used a piece of vellum so you could still see the background yet allows your dinosaur to be the main attaction on your card… Love, love, love this one.

The next bundle, Bloom & Grow has beautiful floral designs and sentiments for all occasions …

Did you notice that the card on the top right is using the die from the “Bird Ballad” bundle? I love how Stampin’ Up! designs to coordinate not just one bundle … but many bundles!

On our second card they used the dies to cut out a elegant mat to highlight the greeting …

Last but not least is the beautiful “Band Together Bundle”. The stunning dies in this bundle really highlight the sentiments and bring the flower to life!

Here you will see several ways to change up your flower to give your cards a totally different look. Simply stamp is as a background or stamp it on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out to make a pretty bouquet behind your greeting … amazing!!

I hope you enjoyed this parade of cards as much as I did pulling it all together and revisiting some of my favorites. It also added 2 more to my Wish List!! Let’s get them ordered before Midnight tomorrow so we can get our 15% Discount. I love a savings too!

Two a Wild Rose Trio …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you’re loving the “To A Wild Rose” bundle … I have a great offer for you! This has been posted before and I just wanted to remind everyone that if you purchase the “TO A WILD ROSE” bundle from me by August 31st, 2019, I will send you all 3 cards with directions and tips to recreate them yourself!! You will also receive a Virtual Rewards point!! You get a Rewards point for each $50 (before ship&taxes) USE HOSTESS CODE: ARQ3KZ9U and place your order by August. 31st. 2019. Cards are ready and will ship as soon as I get your order notification! 

The “True Friendship” card is done with the basic stamping technique of “Color on Color” … I love going back to the basics sometimes, then the technique of sponging color onto the image really adds a soft beautiful touch to the card ….

Today, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Whisper White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo. I begin by coloring a petal with the light marker, then add the dark marker at the part of the petal that is closest to the center and over the lines in the rose. Then I go back over the dark with the lighter marker to blend the colors … you can always add a little more dark again. I leave the edges of the petals as light as I can.

The center is colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Marker and then the rose is die cut.  The leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The lattice piece was cut in Whisper White and Highland Heather and then layered to create an added dimension to the card.  The white base was stamped with the “Hello” from the stamp set and then the entire piece was embossed using the “Subtle” Folder.

Have you fallen in love with this amazing bundle yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. How would you like these cards?

I have a SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOU …

Bouquet of Roses … Three Techniques!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … we made it half way through the week and we are quickly heading into the weekend! I love Thursdays 🙂  Today I have the card I promised to share with you (from yesterdays post) with yet another technique using the To A Wild Rose Bundle.

On Monday I shared the “Blessed” card demonstrating the Three-step Stamping technique …

On Tuesday I showed you the “True Friendship” card and the technique of sponging color onto the image ….

Today, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique …

Before I decided how my card would look, I chose my color pallet; Whisper White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo.

God’s Greatest Gifts …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you this fine Tuesday? I’m feeling good, thank you.  I hope you did not miss yesterday’s card created with the “To A Wild Rose” bundle.  I have another beautiful card for you today. I love Pink and Gray together so that is our color pallet for today.  This is another one of my Stamping Club Cards …

Our base is Blushing Bride and the front in Basic Gray. We begin by stamping our greeting in White Craft Ink and heat embossing with White Embossing Powder. Once your greeting is done, we stamped our rose onto the Basic Gray with Basic Gray to create a beautiful and subtle background.

Our rose and leaves were stamped with the Basic Gray onto Whisper White cardstock … once dry, we used the Sponge Daubers to “pounce” the Blushing Bride ink color onto our rose image and Pear Pizzazz on the leaves.  DO NOT rub or drag the daubers across the images because it will “re-moisten” the gray ink and smear the two colors together.

The leaves and rose are die cut with the coordinating dies (When you purchase the bundle, you save 10% on your purchase). To finish off my card, I added Wink of Stella to the rose and popped the rose and leaves up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are always stamping tips and hints while we create in our clubs … the members share their creative ideas as well. Sometimes we end up changing the cards a touch.  I love stamping with my clubs!!

Blessed to Know You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I had fun stamping with friends, visiting with family and enjoying a relaxing Sunday…. it was nice. As promised yesterday, I will be sharing a card I created from the “To A Wild Rose” bundle. This bundle contains a “Three Step Stamping” stamp set and I used it to teach my Stamping Clubs this cool technique. I also shared a great tip for aligning the rose while stamping.

I am beginning my 2019-20 Stamp Clubs in September so we are currently signing up members now … if you have questions about my clubs or an interest to join, shoot me a message below.  Our focus will be on Techniques and Fun Folds this year and will include instructions!! There is no charge for club meetings, however we do require a $30 minimum order … this allows each member in the group to get Hostess benefits one month!!  Time to share our card …

I began by choosing my color pallet for my rose … There are 3 stamp “layers”. The most solid of the three is actually a DistINKtive stamp it gives monochromatic dimension and artistic fair to your stamping, and will use the “LIGHTEST” of our three colors; Pineapple Punch.

The second stamp (also DistINKtive) adds layering to the first stamp, as you stamp directly on top of your first stamped image. We used Daffodil Delight but we stamped “off” before stamping onto our rose.

The last rose stamp is the detailed stamp set (Or Line Image) and we use the darkest of the 3 yellows … We used Crushed Curry.  You can stamp directly onto the first two layers, or you can stamp it off, both work well.  This is one of those fun stamp sets that you can do a lot of experimenting with different color pallets.

The beautifully die cut leaves, lattice and greeting banner are all included in the bundle, as are the words we used for our greeting.  The “Blessed” and “To Know You” are actually 2 different stamps. You can stamp them separately or you can put both images onto the block and stamp it all at once.

We embellished our rose with the Clear Facet Gems and the lattice with Rhinestones. With the world rearing it’s ugly head lately … I wanted a bright and beautiful card with sparkle, and to let someone know how you feel about them.  I am truly blessed to have such amazing women in my stamp clubs. We’d be thrilled to have you join us!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  Come back tomorrow to check out my second Wild Rose card.

Enjoy the day ~
