Yes, these cards use retired product from a few years ago but I want to remind you that great product is retiring right now. If you are thinking you may want something, hurry before it is gone. Shop here to check those items off of your must have list! The spider embossing folder and the Special Blessings stamp set, the punches and the bigz die are my NEVER FOR SALE items. There is some current product here and even a sneak peak of an upcoming new In Color (Powder Pink). I used the current Stitched Shapes framelits, the Layering Ovals... Continue reading

Here is a Sneak Peak of the Colorful Seasons bundle that will be available to customers June lst or earlier if you are a Stampin'Up! demonstrator. I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp set with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and the new Glitter Enamel Dots. My card base is a new In Color, Berry Burst! Notice my textured background? No, I did not use an embossing folder but did use my Simply Scored tool. I just placed the card stock at an angle and used the stylus on every other groove. Cool,... Continue reading

Sneak Peak from the upcoming Stampin'Up! catalog! This stamp set, framelits, AND designer series paper can be purchased as a bundle, saving you 10%. I love, love, love this paper! I posted cards with the vintage girl earlier. My red layer on the first card, is stamped with images from the set, but I could have used the red side of one of the sheets but I love the other side more and decided not to cut into it for this card. I also used the ribbon and the Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments from this Birthday Memories Suite! Customers can order... Continue reading

The Balloon Adventures bundle is retiring but it makes great cards with this Shadowbox Card idea!

Supplies are shown below, except for the sneak peak of the designer series paper and the Berry Burst card stock and ink that is on the front of the Lift Me Up card. I will include pictures on how I did this card but... Continue reading

I fell in love with this suite as soon as I saw it! Aren't these vintage little girls just the cutest! The sentiment is from the Birthday Delivery stamp set and the girls are die cut with the Layering Ovals from the Birthday Memories designer series paper. I have several packages of this paper as it is just fabulous and has images that coordinate with the Birthday Friends Framelits dies. You will be able to order these the beginning of June when the new Stampin'Up! catalog goes live! I also used new ribbon on the blue card. Love, love, love... Continue reading

Here I am in San Diego for Stampin'Up!'s On Stage event! Had to show you my swap card I made and also my pedicure I had done. I asked for a dragonfly since I had already made my swaps! I can hear my kids now, "Oh, Mom!" I love this Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. It is the only stamp set I used on my cards. It has sentiments, along with great images. It also has coordinating framelits but I didn't use them on this card. My card base is Blushing Bride that is 5.5" x 8.5", scored at 4.25". The... Continue reading

I was a Display Stamper for Atlanta On Stage last November and this bundle was one of the products I was able to design with.

Sale a Bration is the perfect time to buy this bundle because the wood mount bundle is $50.25 and with every $50 subtotal you purchase, you get to choose selected products FREE, and 7 more items have...

Look at the difference! This is the same paper! The Emboss Resist Technique is so fun and Sara Douglas, Stampin'Up!'s CEO, reminded us of this forgotten technique. I stamped the plain black & white paper with Versamark, using the Brushstrokes Background stamp. Then I sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set it with the heat tool. Afterward, I sponged Watermelon Wonder ink over all, and the ink resists where you have clear embossed. You can also do this same technique on colored designer series paper as well! Fun and magical! Love it! This paper is a FREE Sale a... Continue reading

The belly band is just laying on the card. It is not part of the inside look. This is my version of the Fun Fold card that Jill Olsen shared. She used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and the Party Animal Designer Series Paper for hers. You need a 12 x 12 sheet of card stock but you get two cards out of that. Cut your card stock at 5.5" x 12". Then scored at 4.25", 7.25", and 10.25". The 4.25" width is your card base or bottom layer. Then cut your designer series paper 1/8" smaller. The dsp is...

Love three step stamping and this Baby Bear stamp set. The bear almost looks like a photo! Stampin'Up! supplies are listed below for this card. See the collage of other samples I have made with this set. I stamped the darkest layer first (Emerald Envy), then the 2nd layer is full strength Mint Macaron. The final and 3rd layer is stamped off Mint Macaron. Then I sponged around the bear with Mint Macaron. Love, love, love!

Which do like better? I cut my paper wrong for the idea I had, so had to use it anyway! I don't want to waste designer series paper, do I? I think I was going for a nautical look with the colors.

I just love this High Tide stamp set! It has great sentiments but I chose one from the Wetlands stamp set, so it would fit on my oval.

I used the heart stamp from the Over the Rainbow stamp set to make my shamrock. Photopolymer makes it easy to line up your hearts! I love photopolymer! For the stem, I just punched with the Duet Banner punch and then slid it over a tad, and punched again, then just snipped to the length I wanted. The inside says Good Luck, which is also in this stamp set! Easy peasy! Stampin'Up! supplies are below!

I am using up my creativity scraps/extra experimental pieces, lol! My doily layer started off as a blank Very Vanilla piece of cardstock and then I placed my Lace Doily over it and sponged Sweet Sugarplum ink over and around it.

These cards have the perfect slot for you to add that gift card for that special someone! My card base is 11" x 4-1/4", scored at 2-1/4" and at 5-1/2".

The cardstock strips on the front are 3" long and either 1-1/4" wide or 1-1/2" wide. Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Happy stamping! Product List Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Bundle [144708]...

This technique is called the Faux Frames technique and I was inspired by the talented Sandi MacIver, a Canadian demonstrator. If you google Stampin'Up! Faux Frames video, hers should come up. Basically, you have a clear window sheet that you draw your lines around after stamping and after first marking the corners with a pencil mark. Then you stamp, leaving your corners open (no stamping over the corners). Then you place your window sheet over, and draw your line with a fine tip black sharpie on the areas not stamped. My window sheet is 4" x 2 3/4", and my... Continue reading

Loving the new High Tide stamp set from page 25 of the Stampin'Up! Occasions catalog. It has great sentiments but wanted a birthday greeting so that is from the Wetlands stamp set. The talented Tina Zinck from Nova Scotia made a fabulous card and this is a tweaking of hers, with minimal changes. I used the Envelope Punch Board to round all my corners but you could also use the Project Life Corner Rounder. I did emboss the greeting with Clear embossing powder after I stamped with the Night of Navy firm foam pad, which leaves it wet long enough... Continue reading
