Maui Achievers Blog Hop: Congratulations, Graduate!

It’s time for the Maui Achievers Blog Hop, and I’m sharing a congratulations card for a graduate.

Maui Achievers Blog Hop

Welcome to our monthly Maui Achievers Blog Hop. We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui trip. We celebrate this achievement by organizing a monthly hop which helps us to continue to inspire you creatively.

Even though many schools have cancelled or postponed graduations, it’s still important to recognize the seniors. I’m sharing a graduation card featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Darling Label Punch Box. It’s an awesome “kit” that includes a six-piece, photopolymer stamp set with a great variety of sentiments, a clear stamp block, a punch, and two Stampin’ Spots. And, the best part: it’s packaged in a beautiful gold and Night of Navy tin, perfect for storing stamping supplies or for gifting.
 

Today’s Congratulations Card for Graduates

Maui Achievers Blog Hop: Congratulatios, Grad

This graduation card uses one stamp from the set – one perfect for celebrating graduates. I heat embossed it with silver and layered it on Silver Foil (die cut with the Stitched Shapes Die) and a Pearlized Doily. The background papers come from the 6 x 6 Neutrals Designer Series Paper pack.
 
One hint: I didn’t have any black ribbon so I colored the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon with the Black Stampin’ Blend. You can use this trick with any of the blends and Stampin’ Up!’s Silver or Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

Stampin’ Friends: For Dog Moms

Welcome to the April Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring a card for dog moms.

Thanks for joining us on this hop. Be sure to visit all of the blogs and leave a comment. Follow along using the links at the bottom of this post. It’s a great lineup of cards and projects.

We’re celebrating moms for Mother’s Day. I know there are a lot of dog moms out there, so I decided to have a little fun with Stampin’ Up! products. I’ve created a card for moms of our furry friends!

For Dog Moms Card

Stampin' Friends For Dog Moms

I used a variety of products to create this card. Look for them in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog:

  • Dog Builder Punch (#148543 – $18)
  • Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (#151319 – $11.50)
  • Dressed to Impress stamp set (#151666 – $18)
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (#145372 – $30)
  • Layering Ovals Dies (#141706 – $35)
  • Little flowers from the Detailed Deer Framelits (#147915 – $34)

I love Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination. The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper uses a host of complementary colors, and I chose Petal Pink and Mint Macaron for a more feminine look.

And, we need a treat bag to accompany the card.

Treat Bag

I followed the same color scheme and used the same basic products as the card to create a fun, little bag filled with dog treats. The 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags (25 bags for $7 – #151312) provide a perfect receptacle for treats like this and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch makes it quick and easy to create a tag.

How To: Masking Technique Video

I’m sharing a new how-to video showing the masking technique with Stampin’ Up!’s Timeless Tulips stamp set.

 

 

I hope you enjoy this quick video I recorded demonstrating how to use a Post It Note and rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create lifelike images for your card making. This technique works with a variety of stamps and images. Be creative and see what you can do.

Here’s the tulip card I demonstrated. See this blog post for details.

How To: Masking Technique Video

Here is another card I created using one of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020 Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, The Gang’s All Meer. It shows how I used a mask with the cactus to give them a real-life appearance.

How: Masking Technique Video

Thanks for taking the time to watch the video. Please let me know if you have questions about this or other techniques!

On Another Note

Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog is nearing the end of its run. The sales period ends June 2. A retiring list publishes April 22. We do know the 2018-2020 In Colors retire. They include: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Blueberry Bushel. So, if you love these colors and need ink pads, ink refills, card stock, ribbon, Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blends, or Designer Series Paper containing these colors, get them now. They’ll go fast once they are officially announced on the list.
