Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos

The Holiday Catalog is filled with brand-new products for fall crafting projects. I selected the Harvest Hellos stamp set because I really like the coordinating punch (Apple Builder Punch) that can be used either for an apple or a pumpkin, making it a versatile choice.

This card starts with an Early Espresso base, followed by a layer of Old Olive, and topped with a piece of Terracotta Tile Designer Series Paper from the 6 x 6 In Color paper stack. I stamped the pumpkin with Black Memento Ink and punched it out. I also stamped the leave and stem with black ink and punched those out, too. The cute little saying from the set is stamped in Old Olive, and it’s all wrapped together with a piece of Linen Thread.

Look for a list of all of the products I used at the very end of this post. Please contact me if you have any questions. I’d love to help.

Congratulations to Gail Tucker for winning the August card kit.

Easy Note Pad

Picture

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
When I find a 3D item or treat packet I really like, I kind of go crazy making them. That’s how it is with today’s project, a mini sticky note pad holder. They are so cute and easy to make and decorate.
 
I started making the pads featuring the All My Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s new Occasions Catalog. I just love the Lovely Lipstick Foil that created the heart on the front. The other design is also created with Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog, How Sweet It Is. The colors in the paper lend themselves well to festive treat packets. You can get 12 treats from just one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.
 
The Designer Series Paper is cut at 2 inches x 6 inches. Score at: ¾, 2, 2 ¼, 3 ¾, 4 and 5 inches.
 
Fold each end over and adhere. Place a sticky note pad in the center. I put some extra adhesive to make sure the pad isn’t going anywhere. I found some Velcro circles at my local Walmart store. Then I decorated to my heart’s desire!
 
Remember: Sale-A-Bration is ongoing. For every $50 and $100 in purchases before tax and shipping, receive your choice of an item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Choices include exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, Foil Paper and more. New items will be released February 15.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about today’ s project.

Lovely Lipstick Foil

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve had fun playing with new products. One of my favorites is the Lovely Lipstick Foil sheets available free with a $50 purchase during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. You receive four, 12 x 12 sheets of Lovely Lipstick and four of the Grapefruit Grove. You must absolutely see these gorgeous papers in person.
 
Here, I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to crop a heart from the Lovely Lipstick and then I ran that heart through the Big Shot in the Lace Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. It offers such an elegant look.
 
The biggest tip here is that I cut the heart from the layering piece. See the piece of foil beneath the Crumb Cake? I cut the heart from that piece and layered the Crumb Cake on top. I get more bang for my paper and you don’t even know it (unless, of course, you take the card apart!)
 
Other fun elements here are the doily, the All My Love Designer Series Paper and the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love combo package.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. To purchase the products to create this card, click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store. If you have any questions about how this card was created, I’d love to help!
 
Thanks,

Meant to Be Anniversary

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
When you first take a glance through Stampin’ Up!’s new Occasions Catalog, you may think the Meant to Be Bundle on page 6 is for Valentine’s Day only. I’m here to tell you (and show you), it’s not.
 
I created this beautiful anniversary card using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, and gold heat embossing. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
 
Here are the measurements of the layers:
 

  • Top white layer: 4 ½ x 3 ¼
  • Black layer: 4 ¾ x 3 ½
  • Gold Foil layer: 5 ¼ x 4
  • Bottom Whisper White base: 4 ½ x 11 (folded in half)

 
To make it easy to apply the die cut hearts – which are absolutely beautiful – I adhered a piece of the multi-purpose adhesive sheet to the back of the small white layer before running it through the Big Shot. I used the hearts that popped out to embellish the rest of the card. It is sooo pretty!
 
Thanks for stopping by today! To see a list of the products I used to create this card, view the graphics below. Click on any of them to be taken directly to my online store. When you purchase this bundle for $54, you are eligible to receive one free level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward. Choose from exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, butterfly embellishments, and more.
 
Kim
