Botanical Invitations

I always do a celebration for those that qualify for my FREE  Event during Sale-a-bration and so today I thought I would share the invitations that I made for everyone along with a PDF tutorial for you.

This card uses a couple of the items on our Retirement list that I’m sad to see go specifically the wonderful Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517) which is wonderful for collage or creating backgrounds with interest and the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies (140625) since they have these wonderful pop up areas to the flowers that create wonderful 3d effects.

Here is the tutorial that I’ve created for you – so you can make some too!

Botanical Builder Celebrate Card PDF Tutorial (printable)

And I’ve given you a complete supply list below.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Balloon Adventures (142823), Hardwood Background Stamp (133032/133035), and Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517)

Foxy Friends Thank You’s

Today’s card is one that I created for my April Thank You’s. It was inspired by my team mate Cindy’s card that she brought for our swap at our monthly meeting.

I love the way she created multiple cards using the 6×6 stack of A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper (141637) which is perfect for making lots of cards. So I set to work making some too but I changed it up a little bit – This is called casing or CASE (Copy and Share Everything). After all you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. LOL!

I ended making two different designs since I couldn’t decide which I liked best.

And I made a bunch of them for April’s Thank You’s!

Want to make some of your own? Well – how about a PDF tutorial to make things easy?

Foxy Friends Thank You’s PDF Tutorial (printable)

How about you which do you like the best? The one with the Classic Label Punch or the one without? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Foxy Friends (141549) and Thoughtful Banners (141614)

Inks: Calypso Coral Classic Ink (126983) and Basic Black Archival Ink (140931)

Paper: A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack (141637), Calypso Coral (122925), Pool Party (12924) and Whisper White card stock (100730)

Succulent Garden Team Gifts

I love to make special little gifts for my team and I thought I’d share the Succulent Garden frame with you today along with a quick video showing you how I made it.

I’ve love the soft colors in the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper so that is where I started with my project since they seemed to coordinate well with our On Stage logo for this spring. I even personalized the logo with Savannah and the year so that when they take the cardboard piece out to put the photo in they can turn it around and always have the information right there on the back! (After all I have a hard time remember where and when photos were taken after a few years. How about you?)

I also made name tags for our bags.

After all with hundreds of the same bag running around, you want to identify yours quickly right? Especially since it is packed with lots of goodies!!!

Yep, I had all this in my bag to bring home! I love being a demonstrator and attending Stampin’ Up! events!!!

And did you notice? I had a bit of beading fun too! I used blue beads since we are the Blue Mountain Stampers (makes sense, right?) and

I found some special charms to go along with our choice of On Stage location. And check out these cute little On Stage logos using Shrinky Dinks of all things! What fun it was watching them shrink from their original 2″ size down to these tiny charms – brings out the kid in me. LOL! I love spoiling my team and Deborah was pleasantly surprised to find this little Team Gift on her bed in the hotel the first evening.

Okay, you ready to learn how I made the frame? I’ve got two video tutorials for you and a complete supply list if you scroll down to the end.

How to Cover a Wood Frame with Designer Series Paper

How to Make 3d Succulents

Supplies:

Inks: Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink (126950)

Paper: Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper (142778), Pool Party (122924), Tip Top Taupe (138325) Tip Top Taupe (138336), Sweet Sugarplum (141418), and Whisper White Card stock (100730)

Accessories: Succulent Framelits Dies (142757), Bone Folder (102300) and Sponge Daubers (133733)

More On Stage, Beautiful You & a Sneak Peek!

I’ll be sharing a few more photos of my On Stage experience with you today along with a Sneak Peek video! I’ve never done a video before sharing items from the Product Purchase Premiere, but thought you might enjoy a peek at the experience of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

A Stampin’ Up! Event always includes wonderful displays of projects created by many talented Demonstrators.

New product boards so we can not only see but touch and feel too.

Along with presentations of new products and more

And of course one can’t forget Prize Patrol!!! It’s always fun to win!

And then there are the All Attendee Give-A-Ways too!!!! And that’s in addition to what comes in our Event bags (you can seethe bag and the goodies it contained inside in my video) and a copy of the NEW 2017 Annual Catalog. Whew! can you say fun?!

Stampin’ Up! makes these events so much fun and of course gathering with your stamping family is part of the fun too. (I’m met such wonderful stampers over the years from all over.)

As we said goodbye to On Stage Savannah we took a final Team picture at a fun booth they set up.

And enjoyed a lovely dinner together at the Charter House on River Street later that night after the event.

I got to order a special treat – with the She-Crab Soup! Yumm!

On to the Beautiful You Swaps – I really love this set and am very happy that it’s not on the Retirement List. (Happy dance LOL). I created a swap that I took with me using the 2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (which is on the list). This allowed me to make multiple cards with the same layout but play with the colors, which was a lot of fun.

It’s spring so I teamed up the Tip Top Taupe pattern with Blushing Bride and Soft Sky. Here are the cards by themselves so you can see them a bit better.

I really love the way these turned out with the coordinating Enamel Shapes a pop of color. I’ve included a complete supply list below (You’ll have to scroll way down to the end), but here are the measurements for you if you’d like to make one too!

Soft Sky Card Stock Base: Cut 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; score at 4 1/4″

Tip Top Taupe In Color Designer Series Paper: Cut 3 3/4″ x 5″

Soft Sky Card stock: Cut 3″ x 4 1/4″

Whisper White Card stock: Cut 2 3/4″ x 4″

 

Want to see some more cards using this set that I received in swaps?

2017 Annual Catalog On Stage Product Purchase Premiere Goodies Video

On Stage, Easter Swaps & More

Want to see a bit more about my On Stage experience? We’ll I’ve got a few more photos to share again today and then LOTS of cards too!

If you have been stamping with me awhile you know about my Caring with Cards program that I do at the Clarkesville Library each month on the 3rd Tuesday between 2 and 3 pm. It’s free, you simply stop by and create some cards to donate for the Ronald McDonald House and Holiday for Heroes. Well as you can see we are making a difference!

Deborah and I carried in 720 cards for the Ronald McDonald House on Saturday!!!! How great is that? Stampin’ Up! always offers what we call a Ronald McDonald House stamp set each year – And if you would like to make a difference too you can still purchase the My Hero stamp set (141954/141957). It’s on the Retirement List so it won’t be available too much longer. Stampin Up will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House and you’ll receive a wonderful stamp set at the same time. So why not check it out?

Stampin’ Up! gave us a wonderful bag filled with goodies. Notice the color? Well that is our NEW 2017 In Color, Tranquil Tide you see. (I’ll tell you more about the tag and some of the Team gifts I made next week so be sure to stop back by then).

There was a wonderful planner in every bag along with special pens so we can take lots of notes if we desire. LOL! And the tables are always decorated so pretty – check out the NEW 2017 In Color Card stock!  Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. Woohoo!!!

Deborah and I had such a nice time  stamping with our friends.

Make n Takes – because you’ve got to stamp right?

Here is another one using the Basket Bunch Bundle (144731) after all who doesn’t love a chocolate bunny?

And finally here are some swaps using the Easter Message stamp set (142984/142987). I really love the images in this set and Tina was sweet enough to  and included the measurements so we can make lots of them easily! LOL.

Nailed It On Stage Swaps & More!

This past Saturday was Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event – and can you say WOW! I was blown away by the swaps and NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and think you will be too! Deborah and I hit the road for Savannah early Friday morning.

I’ll be sharing more about On Stage and the new goodies in future posts, but today I wanted to share with you a couple of the swap cards I made and some swaps I received.

This first card I made using the Swan Lake stamp set (142974/142977) and our In Color Dapper Denim. I used the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color the beak and add a little shimmer to the water. This stack of 2016 In Color Designer Series Paper #141408 is on the retirement list so get yours before its gone HERE).

Here are some more cards made with our Designer Series Paper Stacks which are all on the retirement list.

this first swap from Cindy uses the Baby Bear stamp set (141859) and the Neutrals Stack of Designer Series Paper (138435).

And this next one if is done in our Dapper Denim again. Barbara used the Custom Tee Bundle (144724) from our Occasions Catalog that is retiring.

And Karen created this classic color combo card using the retiring items Botanical Builders Framelits Dies (140625) and Tin of Cards stamp set (138946) and the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (138435). I’m really going to miss this set since I love the font and the size of the sentiments.

Dragonfly Dreams done in Peekaboo Peach! Love the way Michelle used the Basic Rhinestones (119246) for the eyes.

And finally my Nailed it swap – It was based on my son’s birthday card that I made earlier. You can see that card HERE.

You’ll find the complete supply list below. I can’t tell you how sad I am that this bundle won’t be available after the Occasions Catalog ends. Of course the stamp sets on the retirement list are guaranteed until May 22nd, but our accessories and bundles are only while supplies last. See the complete Retirement List HERE.

Here is another card made with the Nailed It Bundle and Urban Underground Designer Series Paper (142783) that I received in a swap. I just love this suite of products found in the Occasions Catalog on page 47 – the colors are wonderful for masculine cards.

As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? right!  If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too! (Join in the next couple of days and you can even  join my team for our On Stage Online Event this Friday evening.)
