Stampin’ Up! Above the Clouds, Hot Air Balloon Punch

Hello Stampers!

It’s almost here! In just a little more than 24 hours, we can order anything we want from Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. Today, I’m sharing a fun card created with the Above the Clouds Bundle. It features the photopolymer Above the Clouds stamp set and coordinating Hot Air Balloon Punch. I also used some of the brand-new In Colors: Seaside Spray, Purple Posy and Terra Cotta Tile. I punched the balloons from the 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper Stacks. Notice the gingham? I can’t wait to order these versatile papers in all of the colors. The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set, also available in the upcoming catalog.

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back for another card tomorrow when the catalog goes live.

Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia

Hello Stampers!

There’s so much to love in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2019-2020 annual Catalog that debuts June 4. The Magnolia Lane Suite is absolutely gorgeous and can be used for many occasions. In addition to the Enjoy Today sentiment used in today’s cards, other greetings include: Thanks, Thinking of You, Hello as well as some great inside verses.

I’ve used a Soft Suede base that measures 4 1/4 by 8 1/2 and folded. The Petal Pink panel is 4 1/8 x 4 1/8. I stamped the magnolia image in Soft Suede ink on to a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 4 x 4. I applied Petal Pink ink to the flowers and Soft Sea Foam ink on the leaves with Stampin’ Sponges. I then cut the image into three equal pieces and attached them to the Petal Pink base. The sentiment in stamped in Soft Suede ink and trimmed with a snips. I sponged a bit of color onto the sentiment. The card is finished off with Linen Trim.

This suite also includes the Magnolia Memory Dies, the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder, and the beautiful Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Look also for coordinating ribbon, Memories and More Card Pack and Specialty Cards and Envelopes and cork embellishments.

I can’t wait for the new catalog to go live June 4. If you don’t already have a demonstrator and want a catalog, message me and I’ll get one in the mail.

Happy stamping!

Gable Box Gifts

Stampin' Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Stampin’ Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Hello Stampers!

Each time I hold a class or event, I love to treat the attendees with some kind of treat packaging — with chocolate inside, of course! Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Gable Boxes are fun to decorate with Designer Series Papers, ribbons, and sentiments. They are perfect for baby shower and bridal shower treats and would even work well for wedding favors. These boxes are retiring from Stampin’ Up! catalog and won’t be available after June 3. You receive 12 boxes for $8.

I decorated the boxes with the 12 x 12 Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (this paper is retiring). I used four pieces: 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 4 inches. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set and is punched out the new Timeless Label Punch.

Be sure to check out the retiring products. Stock up and get your favorites before they’re gone (or have to pay inflated prices on eBay!)

#simplestamping Challenge

#simplestamping/Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree

#simplestamping/Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree

Hello Stampers!

For the last several months, Stampin’ Up! has issued a #simplestamping challenge. This month, the challenge calls for us to create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper featuring a retiring stamp set.

I used Lovely as a Tree as my focal point. This stamp set has been in Stampin’ Up!’s catalog longer than any other set — since 2001. It officially retires June 3 and won’t be available through Stampin’ Up! It’s a staple for the card-maker’s shelf as it lends itself well to a lot of different occasions. I added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, which WILL be available in the upcoming catalog.

This card uses the double-time stamping technique. The Whisper White Thick Card Stock base measures 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches and is folded in half. The Night of Navy piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 inches. The Whisper White center piece measures 3 inches x 2 3/4 inches. To achieve this effect, you place the small white piece on top of the base and stamp your image across both pieces. You then layer the smaller piece onto the Night of Navy layer (sponge fist) and then add it to the card base. Add your sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. If you love Lovely as a Tree, be sure to place an order for it before June 3. Clock on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store. Let me know if you have questions about this card or any other stamping technique.
