Stampin'Up! Crazy About You!

Hey there! I'm just hanging out with Oakley this morning! He is a fun little guy!

I've been prepping the project packets for my online class in little bits of time I've managed to carve out in between Lando and Oakly time.

When you place your online order with me of at least $35, two of the projects you will receive in your January packet is this card using the Crazy About You stamp set. You can view the full supply list for this card and get the Hostess Code to use when you place your order when you click HERE.

Here are the Make n' Takes from Founder's Circle year. We were given the Crazy About You set and the coordinating Hello You Thinlet Dies to make these cute little tags and cards with Flowerpot Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_crazy_about_you_4

We embellished a Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bag with a Tea Lace Doily, Flower Pot DSP, "hello" from the Hello You Thinlets, a phrase from Crazy About You, and a Clothespin we covered with a bit of Flowerpot paper:

Stampin_up_crazy_about_you_1

After cutting out the "thanks" with the Hello You Thinlet die, we colored a background of Whisper White with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilites, then used the "negative space" cut out by the die to let the colors show through:

Stampin' UP! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December Edition A New Year!

Hey there! It's December 15h, Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop time! yay!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

The theme is "A New Year", and if you're already on the hop you've seen some fun creations! I just LOVE what Stella MacKay of Stellar Stamps comes up with every month, don't you?

When I think of "A New Year", I naturally imagine parties, toasts, resolutions, and kisses at midnight. Stampin' Up! has perfect products to create invitations, cards, decorations, and scrap book pages to highlight theses festivities.

However, for 2015 "A New Year", all I'm thinking about is new grandbabies! TWO of my three daughters are due to give birth sometime in the next few weeks, so I created this card using both current and sneak peek products from the upcoming 2015 Spring Occasions Catalog:

Stampin_up_zoo_babies_sweet_dreams_1 - Copy

The first 2015 grandbaby is a boy! I used Zoo Babies, Baby We've Grown, and Itty Bitty Banners stamps with Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and sneaky-peeky Sweet Dreams Designer Paper. I can hardly wait to show you the new product I'm using to form the letters to add his name after he gets here!

Stampin_up_zoo_babies_sweet_dreams_2 - Copy

I used bits and pieces from all three sets on the front, accented  by the sparkle of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I  tied a bit of Soft Sky Painted Blooms Cotton Twine (also a Sneak Peek) around the Lost Lagoon 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon bow for extra softness.

Except for the dimensional-popped-up-ear, all images were cut with a Big Shot framelit!

Stampin_up_zoo_babies_sweet_dreams_3 - Copy

A clean & simple inside sentiment from Big News, framed above and below with 1/2" strips of Sweet Dreams Designer Paper.

Here's a video by Stampin' Up! to give you more info about this amazing crafting machine. Every stamper and papercrafter NEEDS one!

 

This card was made last night at a stamp camp using Ovals Framelits, Chevron Textured Impressions Folder,  and Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. This card CASED from Tamie Ackerson using the Traveler stamp set:

Stampin_up_traveler_1

The background around the ship was very softly sponged with Soft Sky ink.

Stampin_up_traveler_2

Inside is a Sassy Salutations greeting with a few accents from photopolymer set, Settin' Sail #133453, inked with Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon markers.

That's all for now! Here's a quick list of supplies for the card. All items are found (and can be purchased) in my Online Store:


Stampin' Up! Fabric Flowers on Cardstock!

Hey there! I'm heading to the dr later today to see what they can do for this crud I have. Every year in May I go down with a massive seasonal allergy attack that leaves me coughing, feverish, and feeling overall lousy. I have allergy meds I take all year long, and a few other daily things to help keep my allergies at bay the rest of the time, but when the wheat blooms (which this year is all around my house!) I'm done for.

Today I have a different bloom for you, fabric flower blooms:

Stampin_up_fun_flowers_bigz_1

I had a request from a hostess last month for a fabric flower bouquet and matching card so this is what I came up with. Stampin' Up! doesn't sell fabric anymore, so I broke in to my stash of fat quarter bundles to find this fabric. I matched this bundle with Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, and Marina Mist!

Stampin_up_thoughts_prayers_flower_1 - Copy

For shape we adhered cardstock to the fabric using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (retiring), then we cut them with a retiring flower die, the Fun Flowers Bigz L.

My next newsletter (going out tomorrow) will contain a tutorial to make these flowers, so if you aren't subscribed to receive my newletters, please go over to my sidebar to the "sign up for my email newsletter" box and sign up!

Stampin_up_thoughts_prayers_2 - Copy

We stamped the inside and the envelope with Petite Petals flowers.

Here's a few new things you don't want to miss from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! Free Shipping, Retiring Lists, Weekly Deals, and Secret Garden!

Hey there! Just posting quick today. I have a workshop tonight and tomorrow night that I am prepping for, so I'm a bit time crunched today. I've been trying to add a few non-stamping additions to my day that take bites out of my prep (and blogging!) time, coupled with the dratted Typepad downtime that we experienced for almost 5 days, it's really gotten me out of my blogging routine! I'm trying to exercise more and eat healthier to try to relieve some inflamation and joint pain I've been experiencing. It seems to be helping, but I just don't have my new routine figured out yet. I'm so sorry!

If you get (and open) my  newsletter emails you know about the FREE SHIPPING that Stampin' Up! has going on right now, but just in case you missed it:

I can't leave you without showing you a little something stamp-y, can I?

Stampin_up_secret_garden_kathy_johnson

A pretty little thinking of you card by Kathy Johnson from one of my past monthly swaps! Cathy stamped the Secret Garden image on Whisper White, then ran the layer through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder, giving it an embedded look! The greeting is from Thoughts & Prayers, and she cut out one of the Secret Garden blooms with the Secret Garden Framelit Dies.

Secret Garden stamps and framelits, as well as the Square Lattice TIEF are both on the Retiring List. Don't delay if you want them for your collection, and shipping is still free through tomorrow!

That's all for now! Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Backyard Basics Butterfly Flower Card!

Hey there! It's a rainy, dreary day here, so I decided to share my bright and happy Backyard Basics Butterfly flower card with you today:

Stampin_up_backyard_basics_1 - Copy

I think this card would brighten up just about any day!

I used the "faux silk" technique on the butterfly again, just like I did on my previous Backyard Basics card HERE. I used Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango Stampin' Write markers on my stamp before stamping on my tissue paper, then covered my scrap of Whisper White cardstock completely with an Anywhere Glue Stick. After crumpling and re-opening the stamped tissue, I gently smoothed it over the glue, leaving a few creases and bumps to help give it that "slubbed silk" look. (Kimberly's wedding dress was slubbed sik, so I know what that is supposed to look like!) I perfectly "cut" the butterfly with the coordinating Backyard Basics Framelit.

I cut the Daffodil Delight card base and the Tangerine Tango layer with Floral Frames Framelits, then embossed them with the Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder.

A phrase from Petite Pairs, punched with the Word Window and bracketed with a couple of Brights Candy Dots invite you to open this card:

Stampin_up_backyard_basics_2 - Copy

Inside I repeated the layer shape, this time with Whisper White, stamping the coordinating phrase from Petite Pairs and a couple more butterflies!

I finished my ensemble by stamping another butterfly on my Whisper White envelope and lining it with a bit of Daffodil Delight Designer Paper cut with one of the Envelope Liner Framelits.

That's all for now, but tomorrow is the 15th, so be sure to come back to take the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our group's theme is "Congratualtions!", so be ready to be WOW'd with some great ideas!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Here's the supply list for today's project. You can purchase what you need from my Online Store or click on any image below and you will be taken directly there!

Stampin' Up! Five-Way Flower Pop n' Cuts Card!

Hey there! I'm back to day with the OPPOSITE of yesterday's post; instead of Clean-and-Simple, this one you could say is "high maintenance". lol!

Stampin_up_five_way_flower_1 - Copy

I used the Pop 'n Cuts Card Base Die for the card base. It makes fancy little curves on the front end of the base - I love it! I also clear heat-embossed the Five-Way Flower on both Melon Mambo and Pink Pirouette cardstock two times on each color before punching with all of the scallop circle punches in the catalog!

Stampin_up_five_way_flower_2 - Copy

Pretty much every layer is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. This would definitely be a special card for a special someone!

Stampin_up_five_way_flower_3 - Copy

I finished the inside with one of the phrases from Million & One, cut and layered with Deco Label Framelits.

Stampin_up_five _way_flower_closeCopy (2) - Copy

Up close you can see all the details of the heat-embossed, punched layers, as well as the fun trim details I added. I never seem to use the strips of connected pearls very much from the Pearls Basic Jewels very often, but they were the perfect choice to layer over the Victoria Crochet Trim and the Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffled Stretch Trim!

That's all for now! Check out my supply list for this card, then go to my Online Store to shop! Don't forget there's a new set of Weekly Deals, as well as the Clearance Rack to browse. You never know what you will find in there!

Please note: the "congratulations" greeting is from the Hostess Set, Express Yourself. I did not include it in the supply list because you can only choose it as part of your Hostess freebies when you submit an order of at least $150, whether it is just your own order, or a combined order of yours and those of your friends. If you have any questions about that, please contact me!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Fresh Prints Balloons!

Hey there! Hope your Monday is going well. I got up really early this morning to go to Jessica's house to help the girls (chiefly Ava) get ready for school, then I've been watching Jaxon until Jessica gets home. She went to a photography seminar in Champaign, IL over the weekend.

I spent a few days last week stamping, stamping, stamping, so I  have quite a pile of projects waiting to show you. Today's project incorporates the balloon tutorial that went out with my last newsletter, only this time I used the Extra Large Oval Punch for the body of the balloons:
Stampin_up_regarding_dahlias_1

I liked using the Extra Large Oval Punch, because I could stamp the greeting from Regarding Dahlias first, and then punch it out. I used one of the patterns from the Fresh Prints Designer Paper Stack and Island Indigo cardstock for the other two balloms, all anchored with Island Indigo Bakers Twine and highlighted with my White Chalk Marker.

Stampin_up_regarding_dahlias_2

 I've tried to capture for you the custom-made clouds embossing I did on the Soft Sky layer, but it's hard to see:

Stampin_up_regarding_dahlias_4

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Bring on the Cake:

Stampin_up_balloons

Here's how I made the embossed clouds:

I started by cutting 24 clouds with the cloud-shaped word bubble framelit and some medium-weight cardboard I had saved in my stash from discarded packaging. I stacked the clouds three high, adhering them to each other and the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardboard base with SNAIL. I trimmed off the ends of the clouds flush with the edges of the base with scissors.

Stampin_up_word_bubbles_clouds_1

Starting with Tab 1 and a cutting plate, I put the cardstock I wanted to emboss face-down on the clouds shapes on the Big Shot platform.

Stampin_up_word_bubbles_clouds_3

I added three layers of craft felt over the cardstock/clouds layers before finishing with the top cutting pad. I cranked this through the Big Shot. It was tight, but not too tight to go through. You need the layers of felt so they will squish down over the cloud shapes and emboss the paper. (If you have one of the soft, floppy silicone pads from Stampin' Up!'s retired Letterpress plates that would work too, but I wanted to use something that was readily available and not frustrate you by using something I can't sell to you anymore.)

Stampin_up_word_bubbles_clouds_4

After embossing the clouds I sponge them with whatever color I want them to be. On today's card I sponged them with White Craft ink. In the picture below I sponged the white clouds with Soft Sky ink.

Stampin_up_word_bubbles_clouds_6

I attached this layer to my card with LOTS of Stampin' Dimensionals. I even put a dimensional in the center of each cloud to keep them from flattening as the card went through the mail.

Stampin_up_word_bubbles_clouds_7
Finished card again:

Stampin_up_regarding_dahlias_1

That's it! To purchase the supplies to create this card, go to my online store HERE.

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
