A Good Man & more

As I mentioned yesterday, today’s cards are all swaps done by my team members at this month’s team meeting. I always love to see what they are creating when we gather – and swapping is a lot of fun since we all have different styles and favorite sets. So we get to see lots of new ideas.

I’ll start with the Fancy Folds which were clearly on a lot of our minds – after all they are a lot of fun to make.

This first card is a Tunnel Card using the A Good Man stamp set (149270) and the Stitched Shapes Dies (145372) that was created for Father’s Day

I love the sentiment peaking out from the rectangle on the inside and can’t wait to try one of these myself, so stay tuned. lol

And here is a lovely Four Fold Card using the Beauty Abounds stamp set (148726)

I love the Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana together – clean and crisp. The pop of color on the butterfly wings was done with our Stampin’ Blends.

And of course our classic Black & White – This Pop Up Corner Card using the Beautiful Promenade stamp set (146842) and Basket Weave 3D Embossing Folder (151797 available again soon) is sure to impress.

And here is a card using the Healing Hugs stamp set (148223)

Can you guess where the sentiment is from? It’s the Vibrant Vase stamp set (148656) that has been cut out using our Stitched Shapes Dies ( 145372 ).

And last but not least the final card for the day uses the Love What You Do stamp set (148042) using Merry Merlot and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends – a rather striking color combination I thought.

And how about the final swap? It’s a 3d project – A little desk caddie to hold our adhesives using the It Starts with Art Bundle (151090) and the coordinating Designer Series Paper, Follow Your Art (149489).

Perfect for any crafter’s desk!

Have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know – I know I can’t pick just one. LOL.

It Starts with Art Wiper Card Tutorial

I love gathering with my team each month and sharing – after all isn’t that part of the fun of stamping, the community? So last month when my friend Sue shared a card with us during Team Craft Time I loved the idea of her sharing it at June’s Meeting. We made it a team effort, she shared the basic wiper base how to and I designed a card for us all to make.

Here is what I came up with as far as the card design. I love the craft focused Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper with it’s bright colorful patterns. And this movement card seemed perfect for the It Starts with Art stamp set too.

While these cards look difficult to make, they really are quite simple once you get the hang of them. I’ve broken down my tutorial into two parts for you the card base itself and then how I decorated it to make things a bit easier. So you’ll want to watch both parts to see the complete project.

Above the Clouds Pop Up Box Card

Today’s project is a sneak peak of one of my favorite bundles from the 2019 Annual Catalog that will go live next week on June 4th. This bundle is perfect for this time of year as we are in the middle of our 46th Annual Helen Hot Air Balloon Race here in North Georgia. Watching all those colorful balloons floating majestically across the North Georgia mountains is a sight to see.

The Above the Clouds Bundle includes a Photopolymer stamp set and coordinating punch – making it a great bundle for all kinds of crafters. I’ve teamed this set up with one of our retiring Designer Series Papers , Best Route (146897) which is part of the Last Chance List. This paper has a travel theme and contains wonderful areal images of of roads which I thought was great for the hot air balloon theme.

Flowering Desert

Today’s post is the result of my wondering mind over the weekend – I started thinking about just how hot it was for the end of may here in the North Georgia mountains. It just shouldn’t be in the 90’s the end of May, sigh. I’m thinking it’s going to be a long hot one, if this is a hint of what is to come. Any how, the heat got me thinking about my Aunt who lives in Phoenix, which in turn got me thinking about my first barrel cactus she gave me as a child, which got me thinking about our stamp set Flowering Desert. See what I mean….some days are funny that way. LOL

Any how today’s cards both use the retiring Flowering Desert stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. Succulents are still very popular and this set is perfect for creating some wonderful cards.

Like these cards? Why not check out the stamp set today? It’s only available for a limited time since it is part of the Last Chance List. AND did you know that there is a You Can Make It option (150813)? yep, it contains the set, clear block, card stock and 4 colors ink! Perfect to get your started.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a card tutorial with you.
