Textures & Frames Hinge-Step Stamping

Textures & Frames Hinge-Step Stamping

Be sure to take advantage of Stampin’ Up!’s SaleABration promotion. Receive free, exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper packs, and dies with minimum purchases. The sale ends September 30, 2021. That’s about two weeks away. Who doesn’t love free?

A couple of the offerings coordinate with holiday and winter themes and stamp sets. While you may not be in the mood for holiday crafting now, this promotion offers the perfect opportunity for you to save money on your future crafting.

For the last several months, I’ve been playing with all of the free offerings. I try to make as many cards (as time allows) with the sets, papers, and dies. The Textures & Frames photopolymer stamp set (free with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping), lends itself to a variety of background stamp techniques. See this post for a host of other card examples.

Stampin' Up! Textures & Frames

Today’s card uses the Stamparatus, Stampin’ Up!’s stamp positioning tool, to create a fun background for a bright and cheery birthday card. The Stamparatus sells for $49. Add some adhesive or card stock to your order, and you can choose the Textures & Frames stamp set (or any of the other level one choices — free).

The video below shows how I created this multi-color background with one of the design images from the set. The “candles” use another of the images; I added rhinestones to act as the flames on the candles. I created the different color candles by applying ink from Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write markers directly to the stamp. The birthday sentiments comes from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.

Thirteen Handmade Card Samples

Peaceful Prints

I love many things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator! But perhaps the best part is the stamping community that comes with it .

During my almost-eleven years as a demonstrator, I’ve made so many lasting and valuable relationships with people who share my love of Stampin’ Up! and paper crafting.

I had a chance to gather with some of these women this last Saturday at a local team meeting. (I recently moved to Arizona from Nebraska so I have a great group there with whom I met this summer).

One of the fun things we do is “swap” our card creations. Each person designs one card and then creates enough for everyone participating. Then we “swap” or share our cards. I love that everyone has a different style and likes different papers and colors; it gives us some new ideas to implement in our own craft rooms.

This blog post features a look at the cards each of the participants created. The card shown at the top of the post is a remake of one of the cards I received from Ginger Borneman (Ginger Snap Stamps). Be sure to watch the accompanying video. I share these same cards and discuss them there.

The card at the top showcases Stampin’ Up!’s #simplestamping. Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a #simplestamping challenge. This month we create a handmade greeting using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper with SaleABration products. I used the coordinating colors of Poppy Parade, So Saffron, and Pacific Point to create this bright and cheery birthday card.

I paired the images from the Textures & Frames stamp set with Stampin’ Up!’s Sunny Sentiments stamp set found on page 38 of the Annual Catalog. The sentiments included in this set cover most of the occasions for which I send cards. (Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post to see how this card is created. It’s a Facebook Live replay. I go live each Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. Pacific Time. Join me!)
