Country Home Folding Box & Tutorial

Today’s project was one that I made for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this past Saturday. It’s a great little box and it folds flat which makes it a lot of fun and super when you need to travel with something.

It uses the Country Home stamp set a fast becoming a favorite of mine and who can resist the Tile Tin Dynamic Embossing Folder – so perfect for a vintage feel.

I found these yummy little Russell Stover Pecan Delights as treats to go inside. I think the wrapper looks like Cajun Craze, how about you?

I’ve made a video tutorial for you so you can make some too. Why not take a few minutes and check it out?

So Santa

I chose today’s stamp set, So Santa since I’m thinking about our family, friends, and neighbors to the north in the Carolina’s who are waiting for Florence. Praying they’ll be safe. Living close to the beach has got to be wonderful, but it sounds like Florence will pack a punch. (The day here in North Georgia has been over cast and it’s been raining off and on so we can feel Florence getting closer even this far away.)

So Santa (147824/147821)  is a fun set with quirky little images and sentiments for the holidays and you’ll find it on page 23 in the Holiday Catalog. These two cards happen to use the beach themed image. This first card teams the set up with the Tropical Chic stamp set (146750/146753).

.

And how about this card? I love the look of the surf board. I wish you could see it. I’m not sure my photo does it justice – colored with Stampin’ Blends, a quick swish of Wink of Stella and then a bit of VersaMark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder.

The sand dollars and net were created with the Under the Sea Framelits Dies (146334). Too cute!

Well that is it for today since I’m a bit late posting – I’m sure my son will be looking for food soon, and since I’ve been playing in the classroom this afternoon making little treats for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this Saturday I don’t have anything planned. LOL, so I better get going before he starts digging through the pantry!

It’s a Happy Harvest with Country Home

Today’s cards all use the Country Lane Suite of products from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. This Suite is filled with wonderful products that you won’t want to miss out on. I immediately fell in love with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Galvanized Metal Paper.

You’ll want to check out this quick video sharing this new product and some techniques that can be done with it.

Spooky Treats

It’s almost fall and that means Halloween is right around the corner – If you love Halloween you’ll want to check out this fun card using the Spooky Treats & Winter Woods stamp sets from the Holiday Catalog.

This card uses simple sponging and masking to create a wonderfully spooky fall night!

How is it done? First you’ll create a mask using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and a sticky note. Place the sticky note where you’d like it on your Whisper White card stock. Then sponge starting with the lightest color Crushed Curry in a circular motion to begin building the layers of color. Add some Pumpkin Pie and then finish with Blackberry Bliss. Remove the mask and you’re ready to finish stamping.

Yep, it’s that easy. Each time you’ll get a little different look based on your sponging which makes it a lot of fun.

And if you love this punch you’ll love this tip that Sara shared with us yesterday.

The Spooky Bat Punch (148014) cuts out the bats from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (147531) bat images! How cool is that?

You’re going to LOVE all the fantastic products in the Holiday Catalog! Why not come to my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and check them out? But hurry and RSVP by the end of the day September 12th so I’ll have enough goodies for everyone!

Can’t come? or don’t live local and want a catalog? If you don’t have a demonstrator why not email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com your name, address and phone number and I’ll be happy to mail one to you!

Love this card? Then you’ll want to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more wonderful cards from a swap I recently hosted.

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Spooky Treats (147719/147716) and Winter Woods (147658/147661)

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (132708),  Blackberry Bliss (147092), Pumpkin Pie (147086), and Crushed Curry Classic Ink (147087)

Darling Label Punch Box Thank You

We’ve got a fantastic Tin available so I couldn’t resist getting one of these for myself.

Gorgeous right? and this tin contains ink, a clear block, stamps and even a punch! Got to love punches. At least I do, especially the ease of creating multiples or on the go! Keep the tin or fill it and give it as a gift. The choice is yours.

Today’s card was inspired by one that Stampin’ Up! did in training for us in our quarterly magazine.

I love the soft feel of this card that I’ll be sending out for this month’s Thank You to those that order.

Want to make some too? Here is a FREE Tutorial for the card.

(I’ll include a complete supply list below for you.)

And as I worked with the set I thought it would be nice to have a storage case for the stamp set too, since I’d like to put mine on my shelf with the other stamp sets – so I created a Standard Stamp Case Insert for it too.

Merry Christmas to All Tutorial & More

Well as you can see I didn’t get to post this yesterday afternoon like I had hoped, but the good news is I can share it with you today and even more!

Last month my team enjoyed a shoe box swap and so today I thought I’d share some of them with you. This first card uses the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (147702). This set is filled with wonderful sentiments and has a coordinating Thinlits set, Merry Christmas (147912).

I love the warm country feel of the Festive Farmhouse Suite that was used to highlight this set. How about you? And good news I thought you might enjoy making this card too so I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial that includes the complete supply list for you!

Merry Christmas to All Card PDF

And here is another fun card using the Fun Santa’s Workshop Suite of products.

I feel in LOVE with the Santa’s Workshop Specialty Designer Series Paper (147809) with its flocking! It’s so much fun and you can use the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies (147809) to cut out the images! How fun is that?

And how about another tutorial with a full supply list for you? I couldn’t resist. lol

Signs of Santa Card PDF

And this final card uses the Nature Sings stamp set (143653/144406) and the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (141851) from the Annual Catalog.

Beautiful.

Today’s cards are all part of a shoe box swap that we did at the Blue Mountain Stampers Weekend Getaway in August. This getaway is a time for my team to gather and spend the weekend together. We spend the time laughing, sharing and of course stamping with the new products from the Holiday Catalog PreOrder. It’s a lot of fun and I can’t believe we’ve already been doing this for 6 years now! I love these retreats and spending the time with my team – each and every member is such a blessing to me and we’ve become friends over the years.

Does this sound like fun to you? Love the new products? Do you have a big wish list?

Right?  Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose!

2018 Holiday Catalog Goes Live & Organization 101

It’s live! And you’re going to LOVE the new product options available for this fall’s crafting. I know my wish list is long.

This first item is a index for the new catalog – I’ve set it up like I did last time with the stamps in one column and the accessories in another listed by group. Let me know how you like it by leaving a comment below. And of course if you find a mistake, please let me know I’m happy to correct the file for everyone.
