Dressed to Impress Shoe Box Swap Tutorial

As promised today I’ll be sharing the card I designed for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Shoe Box Swap that I hosted last weekend. I really love the way this card turned out. Lovely Lipstick just seemed to be a perfect choice for this card since I was choosing the lipstick image.

I’ve used the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper stack for this project since I really like the fact it has both lovely floral patterns on one side and then graphic patterns on the other that play off the stamp set images. Great for all kinds of occasions cards this spring.

I’ve put together a video tutorial for you along with my standard PDF with the complete supply list and step by step how to.

Enjoy!

And how about some of the other participants cards too?

This first card was created using the From My Heart Suite of products (153931) and is perfect for that someone special.

The lovely From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (151189) has been teamed up with our Heart Doilies (151191) and Form My Heart Faceted Gems (151154). Do you recognize the little hearts? It from the Stitched Be Mine (148527) Dies from the Annual Catalog. One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination they give us so you can use our new products with ones you already have!

This next card uses our Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms (152290) that you can earn for FREE when placing a qualifying order.

It also uses the fun Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Combo Pack (152314) another item in our Sale-a-bration Brochure that’s you’ll have fun using on your projects.

Done in Soft shades it has a wonderful spring feel to it. Don’t you love how the same set can look so different simply by changing your color pallet? I shared an project with you earlier this week HERE using colors from our Regals family. Why not check it out?

Heartfelt Treat Box

Today’s project is one that I made as a little gift for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demos recent shoe box swap that I hosted last Saturday.

This event is a new one that I’m hosting for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, including those in North and South Carolina who want to participate and are in driving distance. It’s a lot of fun sharing and stamping together.

It holds a some heart shaped chocolate cakes in it made by Little Debbie.

So quick and simple to make and who wouldn’t like a little cake to sweeten their day?

Something for Everything Note Card Tutorial

Today’s card was created using the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms and the Something for Everyone set from the December’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. Since the kit contained a sentiment set I thought this image heavy set was a great choice to create a variety of projects with.

Here is the Note Card that I made.

Here is a quick video showing you how I made this card and see how I put it together.

Lovely Lily Pad Easel Calendar

It’s a week of tutorials and today I’ll be starting with a project that uses several of our FREE Sale-a-bration products that coordinate together. When I first saw this Sale-a-bration option I knew it was one I wanted to add to my collection and would reach for over and over again! I shared with you my January #imbringingbirthdaysback birthday card I made earlier HERE.

And since I thought it would be a lot of fun to kick the year off with calendars for my stamping friends here is what I came up with.

I’m still in the process of putting them together, but I wanted to share this with you – so if you’re a customer of mine watch for one coming to your mail box soon!

Can you name the set the sentiment is from without looking?

The “Happy Day” sentiment for this project is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Itty Bitty Greetings. This set holds 32 greetings that cover all kinds of occasions, so it’s a great value and wonderful to team up with your favorite image sets.

Easel fancy folds are perfect for setting this calendar up on your desk and enjoying it though out the year, and with this Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper it’s like looking at a little piece of art.

Want to make one too? I’ve got a video and pdf tutorial for you today.

Painted Poppies & More

Today’s cards are swaps that my team members brought to share at our January Team Meeting. I always enjoy seeing what they are crafting since everyone’s styles can be so different and well, it’s just fun to share.

These first two cards use the Painted Poppies stamp set (151599) and products from the Peaceful Poppies Suite (153938). This first card shows off the mirror image effect you can create with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (151324). When you cut the sheet into 4″ sections and then cut them in half again, you match up the mirror images. How cool is that?

This next card uses a Crossover Gate Fold to show off the suite of products.

If you love these cards and the Suite of products you may want to check out my February Class schedule and my Peaceful Poppies Class. Not only will you get a class with me when you’ll learn how to use the products, you’ll also receive great products so you can go home and immediately start stamping! CLICK HERE to see my Calendar of Events and learn more about my classes, both live and Kits to Go.

Here is another fancy fold, this time a Double Door fold using the Stitched Be Mine Dies (148527) from the Annual Catalog.

It’s been teamed up with the lovely From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (151189) and a sentiment from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set (151345).

And finally last, but not least a lovely card using the Daisy Lane stamp set (149325) and coordinating Daisy Punches (143713 and 149517).

Done in Cherry Cobbler and Blushing Bride it uses our Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack (149615) for the small gingham background. It’s soft and sweet and perfect to send to a friend.

I feel really blessed to have such a great group of stampers and we always have the best time together sharing and stamping.

Did you know right now is a great time to purchase a starter kit? It’s the best deal in the catalog and during Sale-a-bration (until March 31st) not only will you get to choose $125 in product, an addition FREE stamp set of your choice, but you’ll also receive a Mini Paper Cutter and Designer Series Sampler.

Under My Umbrella

It’s been another rainy day here in North Georgia, but while we have gotten almost another inch of rain today and over 6 inches already this month, we’ve been fairly lucky. As I was walking past my windows I just noticed all the mist across the fields, it was so pretty I thought I’d share a picture with you tonight.

All this rain makes me feel like its a fitting time to share some of the swaps I received using the Under My Umbrella Bundle of products that you can find in our January – June 2020 Mini Catalog on page 42.

This stamp set and it’s coordinating punch are great for all kind of occasions – check out the sentiments.

Cute right? And it has a coordinating punch too which is great for quick and easy projects.

Here are a couple of fun cards made with the bundle This first one is a fancy fold done in Gorgeous Grape.

And this second card uses our Petal Pink – so soft and pretty when teamed up with the So Saffron and Soft Suede.

This card uses a technique that we call paper piecing. Stamp your image onto the Designer Series Paper of your choice, in this case it’s the Bird Ballard (149592) from the Annual Catalog, then cut or punch out.

And finally this bright and bold card done with a wash of color for it’s back drop.

The umbrella has been done with paper piecing again, but this time using the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443). Aren’t techniques like this simply great? And how different this card looks from the one above it!

Here are a few more ideas for you using this bundle.

Enjoy! Then stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a tutorial with you for this months #imbringingbirthdaysback card.
