Caroling Mice

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! always gives us exclusive stamp sets along with other products as a Host option? The July – December Mini Catalog gives us not only the Caroling Mice (159912 Host exclusive) but also a stack of 48 sheets of Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper (159913) and this Designer Series Paper’s designs cover everything!

Today’s first card uses both of those products to create this fun colorful card.

Our Stampin’ Blends were used to color this cute little guys and a bit shine was added with the Gold Trim (155766) and Opal Rounds (154289). This next card creates a lovely winter scene

and uses the Snowy White Velvet Sheets (156405) to create the layer of snow giving the card a wonderful texture and feel.

Did you know that you can earn the exclusive Host products a couple of ways? You can place a qualifying order and be the host yourself or host a private party in person or online using a Host Code that I give you. Yes, it’s that easy and you can not only choose from exclusive products, you can also choose any of our products including our Starter Kit making it a perfect option for everyone.

The Very Best Occasions

Sentiment stamp sets are one of my favorite things to add to my collection. They give me a fresh new selection of greetings that breath life into sets I already have on my shelf. Are you a sentiment set fan too?

The Very Best Occasions stamp set (159871) not only has holiday sentiments in it, it also has all occasion sentiments that I can use throughout the year making it a great value. And if you love punches check out the Very Best Trio Punch (159878) that is part of the Very Best Occasions Bundle (159879) and save 10%.

Here are some lovely cards using the sentiments from this set. This first card uses Heat Embossing in silver to create the focal point of the card and the coordinating punch has been used to add interest.

The Silver Metallic Edge Cotton Ribbon (159193) adds a bit more shine. This next fun fold card uses the same sentiment but adds the wonderful Celebrate Everything Designer Series Paper (Host 159913) for a fun bold color pallet. The Decorative Circle Punch (159174) adds a whimsical feel to the project and a bit of shimmer was added with the Opal Rounds (1542898). Can you see them on the ornaments?

And how about this next card? The traditional colors found in the Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper (159559) make a great back drop for this sentiment on this fun fold card that will stand up with just a couple of score lines. You simply take your 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Garden Green panel and score at the 2″, 3 1/8″, 5 3/8″, 6 1/2″ marks.

And how about this elegant card using the Labels Aglow Dies (159551) and Boughs of Holly Designer Series Paper (159600) for a little bit of elegance?

Last but not least here is a Valentine card using the set along with Real Red & White Glimmer Paper (159578) and the same Designer Series Paper as the card above. The back side of this holiday paper has wonderful patterns and textures too making it extend the use of the paper into the new year.

The Heart Punch Pack (151292) and Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317) from the Annual Catalog add texture and interest.

So what do you think no two cards alike, right? Isn’t that one of the great things about paper crafting? We start with the same stamp set and end up with tons of choices! Have a favorite card? Why not leave me a comment today and let me know which one you like?

More #OnStage Swapping Fun!

Yesterday, I shared some of the cards I received during the swapping at OnStage and I’ve got more to share with you today. These stamping events are always fun and there is a lot more to them than swapping. We learn, see new products, share and stamp together too. So it’s always a good time. You’ll want to keep reading because today I’ll share more than just my swaps with you, but I’ll be starting there with a Christmas Barn Bundle card.

Done in neutral tones this card is simple and elegant with a classic country feel. Love embossing folders? How about this card that uses the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder to create a quick and simple card that packs a wow.

And this next card Night of Navy and the Christmas Scottie sentiment for this charming card.

I just love the way our products work together, don’t you? Here is a bright and cheerful card using the Christmas Scottie set too but this time done in Parakeet Party. After all it’s not just a holiday set.

The Christmas Scottie makes great 3d projects too – check out these 2 treat holders.

Making treats is always soo fun. And speaking of dogs, how about a little elephant? This next card uses the Elephant Parade stamp set and coordinating dies to create a little holiday card.

And for a traditional feel Here are a couple of cards that use two of our wonderful sentiment sets Christmas to Remember and Brightest Glow. So easy to team them up with your favorite papers like these cards do!

Non traditional colors have been used on the last couple of cards I’ll be sharing with you today. This first one uses our Decorated with Happiness Bundle and teams up our Sweet Sorbet with Soft Succulent.

And the beautiful Framed Florets Bundle that is currently available with it’s limited time products as a sneak peek from the 2023 Mini.

This is just a few of the lovely projects I received as I swapped last Saturday.

I’ve never been to Jacksonville and really enjoyed my time there. I was thankfully the hurricane didn’t cause more issues than it did for everyone. It was a rainy drive in from Clarkesville as Nicole moved her way north into Georgia, but the sun was out when I arrived in Jacksonville and the river and all it’s bridges were quite lovely.

In addition to swapping I was able to attend Center Stage and receive new 2023 Mini & Sale-a-bration catalogs, NEW products, and a special CenterStage gift.

The beautiful umbrella opened to have a fun pop of color on the inside. It will be fun looking up and seeing all these wonderful colors on a rainy day.

Of course, during OnStage there are always prize patrols during the event and lovely decorated tables to enjoy for the day. You’re going to love our NEW Specialty Papers!

We also got to stamp a bit and were able to use the new Kit that is now available called, The Timeless Greetings Kit (161062). I really enjoyed all the texture and the look of these cards and since it contains everything you need to craft it makes a wonderful gift too!

As always Stampin’ Up! spoils us with our swag bag and prize patrol and fun demonstrations! I can’t wait for our next gathering.

I’m working on my 2023 January – June Mini & Sale-a-bration Catalog mailing list now and will finalize it November 25th. If you have placed an order with me during the last 3 months, you’ll automatically get a copy.  And of course, if you place an order with me by November 25th you’ll also be included and receive a copy by mail.

#OnStage & Swapping fun!

Wow, I just got back from another fun Stampin’ Up! event in Jacksonville and as usual it was a blast! It’s definitely wonderful to gather again after so long and the energy was high, even with having to drive through the tropical rains of the hurricane as I went south. lol You never know what weather will bring here in the south.

Anyhow, I thought I’d start by sharing some of the fun swaps that I received over the next couple of days from my fellow stampers. The selection covered a wide range and it’s always sooo much fun to see what everyone creates. I’m going to start with the 3d items, as they are what drew me to stamping in the first place.

This first one is so clever for the fall and thanksgiving

And speaking of fall here is a lovely card made with the Hello Harvest Bundle.

And this next one uses the Very Best Occasions and our sweet little Bells embellishments (159980)

along with a card using the same set.

And these next 2 cards use the Santa’s Delivery Bundle

The belly band on this card when removed reveals a fun fold card.

And how about some cards made with the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle?

And my final card today uses the Christmas Banners Bundle

Wow, right? That’s it for today, why not leave me a comment and let me know your favorite? Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more from OnStage with you!

In the Moment Masking Technique Card Tutorial

I’m off to the Stampin’ Up! event #OnStage in Jacksonville and am excited to be able to gather with other Demonstrators a live event. So in preparation for another fun Stampin’ Up! event I’ve create this card to swap while I’m there.

This card uses the simple masking technique to create a monochromatic image as it’s focal point. I really like how it turned out. The Blending Brush gives it a soft subtle edge and creates a nice contrast to the bold colors behind it.

Want to see how I made it? I’ve created a Video Tutorial for you and also a PDF with the complete supply list, measurement, and step by step instructions.
