Eden’s Garden Home Décor Wreath Video Tutorial

Fun with my Team & More

Have you ever thought about crafting with a group of friends who love stamping as much as you do? I get to do this every month with my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers. We gather, share, and stamp together. The friends I’ve met through stamping is one of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

My Team gathered this week to stamp together and share. So today I thought I’d share some of the project they brought as swaps. I always love to see what everyone is stamping and the different styles of stamping to. This months theme was Christmas Cards.

This first card was stamped with the Evergreen Elegance Stamp set (153313) and it’s coordinating Evergreen Border Punch (153603).

It uses not only the lovely Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (156292) but also the In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616). A bit of texture was added with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder (155431). And for a final bit of shine our Champagne Rhinestone Jewels (151193). And this next card uses the Christmas Season Bundle (156801).

A bit of our Red Velvet (153490) has been cut with the Seasonal Label Dies (156299) as a back drop on the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper background (155718), and our Gilded Gems (152478) add not only shine but texture too.

This lovely basket of poinsettias is from our Season’s Blessings Bundle (155485). The Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718) adds some interest along with he Star Crossed Embossing Folder (156567). You’ll want to check out the Season’s Blessing Stamp set it’s not just for Christmas but has lots of fun images for year round crafting. This next card uses the Stars are Shinning stamp set (156345) and Punch (156380).

Done in Sahara Sand and Basic White it’s a great way to create. And finally this wonderful card for the avid crafter using the Merriest Moments Bundle (156353).

This bundle has not only the dies but a Embossing folder also, giving the die cut image wonderful texture. A simple technique using the Stampin’ Write Markers were used to create the two color sentiment on the front.

And of course everyone loves a quick and simple 3D gift item for the holidays, right?

This little treat was created using our Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (156313) and a bit of our Real Red Ruffled Ribbon (156323).

We have lots of fun sharing and grow together. Did you know that if you ever have thought about joining in the fun and being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator now is a great time?

Team Fun, Artic Bears & More

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather. We had a warmer than normal, but beautiful sunny week for fall break. How about you? Since I didn’t share with you last week, I thought I would share some of the projects from my October Team Meeting. During our monthly team meeting we meet and stamp together along with swapping a project too. I’ll start with this card made with the Artic Bears stamp set (156428) from the Mini Catalog on page 39.

This card is a CASE (copy and share everything) from the catalog, CASEing is a great way to create when you need something quickly or are just getting started. And this next project is a fun 3D made with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (155464) and Artistically Inked stamp set (154542).

The sentiment has been heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder (155555) and the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack (155465) adds some texture and interest. Do you see the little 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (155571)? These jewels are so much fun and add a bit of shimmer and shin to any project. And how about this next card using the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle (156478) and Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper (156494)?

Isn’t it just great for sending during the fall holidays? And how about a fun Triangle Front Flap card using the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper (155718).

Some texture has been added not only with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (154317), but also with the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (151326) and Opal Rounds (154289).

We have tons of fun together and I love to see what everyone is crafting at home. How about you? Do you enjoy sharing and stamping with others?

Sweet as a Peach Treat Tag, Team fun & more

How about some swaps, team time and a fun treat tutorial? Today I thought I’d share what we’ve been doing as a my group recently. I’ve got a great team and we have a lot of fun together when we gather each month, so I thought I’d share some of the groups swaps first. I’ll start with some of the Sale-a-bration cards.

this first card uses the lovely Feels like Home stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156607) and has been colored with our Watercolor Pencils (141709 & 149014) assortments for a softer look. And this next card was created using the Delicate Dahlia stamp set (Sale-a-bration 156601) and Merry Merlot for a bold look.

If you don’t recognize the polka dots it’s from the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper pack (Sale-a-bration 156630) which as you can see is quite versatile. A bit of fussy cutting and some Wink of Stella finish off this lovely card. And how about this big bold sunflower?

This card uses the Celebrate Sunflowers (152517) and the coordinating Sunflower Dies (152704) and it’s also a fun buckle card, the sentiment tucks into a punched slot behind the sunflower.

Not only do we do team meetings each month, but we also had a team retreat in August, so I thought I’d share a couple of the swaps from that today. This first project uses the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle (159516) and Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309).

And how about some pansy fun using the Pansy Petals Suite (155810)? A simple cutting technique creates this criss-cross pattern for the card front.

We also made a fun little box that was filled with some treats.

I really love this Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807) and the fact you can cut tons of flowers out with the bundle’s dies and isn’t the little box adorable? Want to see more team fun? This month was our bi-annual Peak Princess event. What is that? It’s a special day filled with pampering that my team can earn. This time we made 3 special projects, won prizes and enjoyed a nice Hawaiian inspired luncheon together.

The pulled pork and Mango Salsa we had were a hit so I thought I’d share the recipes with you. The pulled pork is soooo easy with just 3 ingredients and you make in the crock pot too! And you may find the Mango Salsa addictive – eat it with chips, or you can add it on top of fish or shrimp taco too.

  • Mango Salsa Recipe PDF

And as a little gift everyone received a charm for their lanyards that was placed in this cute Treat Tag marking this occasion.

Want to see how I made this little Treat Tag? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and a PDF with the complete supply list.

Team Time Fun with the Mini & more

Yesterday was our monthly team meeting – we gathered, shared, and stamped together. So today I thought I’d share some of the wonderful projects that everyone has made. I’ll start with the New products from the Mini.

This first card uses the fun little Nuts about Squirrels stamp set (156475). These little guys are adorable.

The pop of color has been added with our Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (155841). If you haven’t check out this pack of paper, you’ll want to – the colors and patterns are great for fall projects.

This stamp set is so adorable in fact I’ll be offering a card class soon using this set! Watch for more information coming soon. You can sign up my Newsletter email list so you’ll get the information right to your inbox.

And this next card was created with the Joyful Life (156529) found on page 63 of the Mini along with the Layering Circle Dies (151770).

The fun pattern paper is from our Gingerbread & Peppermint Designer Series Paper (156313) pack and is perfect for this project.

Love movement cards? Then you’ll enjoy this next card that uses the Give it a Whirl Dies (154336) along with the Great Tidings Bundle (156382) and is a definite wow card.

The die allows you to show more than just the one sentiment – an who doesn’t love movement cards?

The next few cards show off some of our wonderful nature inspired sets. This first card is monochromatic and is done in Pumpkin Pie. Quick and easy it uses our Daisy Garden Background stamp (155079) that has been teamed up with the sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set (152559).

And how about this tent card that has been made using the Artistically Inked Bundle (155456)?

The Suite (155459) has wonderful gold foiling options too.

Soft and sweet this next card uses our Dandelion 3D Embossing folder (152953) and White Craft Ink to create this get well card.

It’s summer which always makes me think of the beach, so how about a card made with the Friends are Like Seashells stamp set (158203) for our next card?

Texture has been created for the backdrop using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (154309) and our Pearlescent Specialty Paper (154291). It’s simply elegant with all of it’s shimmer.

And last but not least an adorable little 3d box using the Party Puffins stamp set (155054) done in Polished Pink.

How can this little image not make you smile?

Whew – lots of great projects. I’m so blessed with my team, we love to gather together and always have a lot of fun when we do.

Quiet Meadow

The name and images of the Quiet Meadow Bundle makes me think of my childhood and walking through the fields and meadows around my childhood home. Flowers of all kinds, milkweed pods and even Monarch Butterflies came and went through the seasons. My father wanted to have a tree farm and so had bought a large piece of property out in the country with a creek that ran through it. Our home sat on the farthest corner of the property up on a hill, the only spot really out of the flood plain. But that creek made the area rich with black soil and the perfect place to plant his trees on the other side of the property. Unfortunately my father passed before realizing his dream, but those wonderful childhood memories remain.

The Quiet Meadow Bundle includes both images in detail and silhouette.

It also contains some heartfelt sentiments for you too. Check out these wonderful cards made with this set. These first two use our new In Colors and create a lovely monochromatic card using silhouette images.

The butterfly was cut out of our beautiful Pale Papaya, In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616). If you haven’t seen this Shimmer Vellum in person it is simply beautiful with it’s translucent shimmer. Speaking of which, this next card adds the Fresh Freesia Shimmer Vellum to create an over lay of the collage background on this next card.

And how about a fun fold? This next card uses the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) to create this soft and lovely floral card.

And this next card uses our Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (155807) and creates a shadow effect with the dies on this opening flap by cutting a second image out of our Evening Evergreen Card stock and just off setting the image a bit.

It contains a lovely little surprise when open with the Shimmer Vellum butterfly.

And last but not least here is a quick and easy 3d project, using the dies and a bit of sponging.

This sweet little note pad uses the inspiring sentiment from the Hand Penned Stamp set (155070) along with the coordinating Hand Penned Designer Series Paper (155499) to inspire the color choices.

So what do you think? Like all of the options that this bundle gives you? I think you’ll enjoy creating with the Quiet Meadow Bundle. And as you can see it looks great with our 2021 In Color Collection too!

Make them up ahead and simply slide your goodie inside when you’re ready.

LAST DAY TO RSVP & HOLD YOUR SPOT IN MY JULY CARD CLASS

Turtle Friends

I love turtles and find them fascinating, always looking for their little heads peeking out of the water or sunning themselves on the log when at a pond. I think this love for turtles was instilled in me with my first pet turtle as a young child. Remember, the little turtles that you placed in the clear plastic “pond” with a little palm tree in the middle? I’m afraid my little guy tended to be an escape artist. lol

So when I saw the Turtle Friend Bundle (155819) I immediately fell in love with it’s cute images and all occasions sentiments.

The fact that the bundle includes a punch makes it quick and easy to use too! Check out these projects made with the bundle. This first card done in Bumblebee and Old Olive uses the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder (149643) as a back drop.

The Tailor Made Tags Dies (155563) highlight these cute little duo. And this next monochromatic card is done in our new Soft Succulent.

It uses our fun 2021- 2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum (155616) for a pop of shimmer behind the turtle. This paper is awesome and comes in all 5 In Colors, and it is great for overlaying on another layer like this project does.

This next project is a fun fold that swings up the little turtle up for display.

Created using our Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper (155761) and Evening Evergreen the turtle has a shinny shell that was created by adding our Shimmery Crystal Effects (150892) and that shine is also carried over in the Genial Gems (155500) that are used on the sentiment panel. Cute right?

The final project I’m sharing with you today is a treat bag made with our Ombre Gift Bags (155479) filled with some turtle chocolate treats.

Check out the adorable little flower, it’s our Loose Flower Flourishes (155808) that come in 3 of our 2021-2023 In Colors. This accessory is perfect for using with our In Colors since they are a great way to bring trendy colors to your stamping.

Hats Off

Have you seen the Hats Off Bundle (158361) in the Annual Catalog on page 47? It’s a great option for the dudes in our lives with its sentiments and images. The baseball cap is something that most mean have in their closets, or in my son’s case his prize possession. When he gets a new cap like he did yesterday, he’ll give it special attention until it is worn in just right. I guess you could call his hats, the guy version of shoes. lol

So today I’ll share 3 projects with you highlight this fun stamp set and coordinating dies. This first card is done in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso and packs a lot of texture.

It not only uses the Tasteful Texture 3D Embossing Folder (152718) but also the lovely Early Espresso 1/4″ Faux Suede Trim (152472).

Next up –

This lovely card using the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (152494) Misty Moonlight, Smoky Slate and Real Red. Check out the bat it was made using the Suit & Tie Dies (154322). Yep, simply flip that tie upside down and you’ve got a great bat! This card not only has the wonderful woven texture from the Designer Series Paper but also adds some stitching with the Stitched Rectangle Dies (151820). The Smoky Slate layer was dry embossed with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder (155431) for even more texture.

And finally a fun 3D project using the Bundle (158361) It’s quick and simple to make

The colors chosen for the topper were taken right off the package of gum too, which has been slid into one of our 6×8″ Cellophane Bags (102210). A quick and simple gift for that little slugger in our life.
