Flourishing Phrases Card Set & Holder Tutorial

Today’s project is a fun one that creates a lovely set of cards with a holder. It’s done in a soft and subtle classic color combo too so it’s a perfect gift for all kinds of occasions.

Why not create some for your gift giving needs? While we are sheltering and place and have a bit of time at home it’s a great time to plan ahead and get some things done for this years holiday season. Yes, you heard me right, holiday season. I’ve been creating hand stamped projects for gift giving not only to have on hand but to get ahead of the busy holiday season too! Plus as an added bonus stamping and creating reduces my stress level too since it is a chance to relax in my craft space.

And since this set of cards doesn’t require a huge list of supplies to create it’s perfect for those who are beginning to build their stamping supplies too or just want to get something new.

This stamp set has some great images along with a variety of sentiments done in a lovely font – so it is perfect and very versatile for all kinds of projects!

I’ve quickly whipped up a printable tutorial for you today since I wanted to share this with you earlier and it got buried under things in my studio. So why not check it out?

Fun new project using the Best Dressed Suite

Today I’m going to share with you a fun project that I created to hold a couple of post it note pads. I think it’s a great little gift to give someone too! Want to see it?

So what do you think? It uses the Dressed to Impress Bundle and the stamping is on the inside for a little surprise message along with two little post it note pads.

I used what I had here in my closet of goodies but of course if you wanted to you could put a larger post it note pad inside – I did see that they come in the bigger size when I went looking the other day. I was just too impatient to wait on a delivery to start working on my idea. I call it a purse but really I guess it is a clutch since it doesn’t have handles. 🙂

I’ve got a video tutorial and PDF for you so you can make some too! They are pretty simple to make.

Timeless Tropical Treat Tutorial

Today’s project is one that I whipped up as a special treat for those that had signed up originally for my live Class last weekend – while the live class didn’t happen as schedule those folks will still get this little sweet little surprise with their kits.

These treats hold 3 Ghirardelli Chocolates and I just happened to be in luck and have enough hidden from my husband in my class room. The caramel and crunchy caramel pecan wrappers were the perfect color combo for this project as they picked up the colors from the fruit in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series paper.

Want to see how I made these quick little treats? How about a 3 minute video?

Spotlighting the Blue Mountain Stampers

Last week we had our monthly Team Meeting and so today I wanted to share with you some of the projects that were brought by everyone to share. It’s always fun to see what everyone has been up to since we last stamped together.

This first card is a fun fold, pocket card and it is done in our bright Flirty Flamingo and always a favorite Blackberry Bliss.

Shirley used the Peaceful Moments Stamp set (151595) and Poppy Moments Dies (151594) for this lovely pocket card. This fold is very easy but always packs a wow.

Spring is coming and this next card makes me think spring since it uses the Sending You Thoughts stamp set (152297 Sale-a-bration) and the Coordination product, Sending Flowers Dies (153589). Wanda also chose to make her cards with a variety of colors, this time our 2018-2020 In Colors. I just love the difference color makes.

Did you know that March is a great time to fill in your 2018-2020 In Color Collections? Not only will you get to earn Sale-a-bration products when you order during March but you’ll also beat the Retirement List rush. So why not check your collection and make sure you have all your favorites? Ink Pads, Card stock, ribbon, etc. – You’ll want to make sure to get the reinkers too if you don’t already have them since they are the first to fly out the door!

Here is the adorable Little Ladybug stamp set (152384 Sale-a-bration Host set) and coordinating Dies (153588).

Sue made this little Magnet Slider Card to share – so cute.

And this card is perfect for spring (and our neck of the woods, since we’ve already racked up 1/2 a year of rain already!)

The Under My Umbrella Stamp Set (151518) and Umbrella Builder Punch (151293) were used to create this lovely Double Z Fold card.

And if you love the NEW 2nd Release Sale-a-bration items, you’re going to love this soft lovely card done with our Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends.

How can you not love this Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper (152312 Sale-a-bration)? It’s gorgeous! and the So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper (152313 Sale-a-bration) is just that. It just shimmers with it’s pearly finish.

And last but not least some 3d projects. This first one is a treat that Pat made special for the up coming St. Patty’s Day. Pat cleverly used the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) to create this card in shades of green.

And Wanda made this little treat bag using our Acetate Card Boxes (144628) that she cut in 1/2.

It uses the Beautiful Moments stamp set for it’s sentiment, along with the very popular Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper (153558) – love the soft spring colors that this paper contains AND the fact it coordinates with our punches too.

Whew! There was lots of sharing going on this month! If you’d like to join a great group who love to share the Blue Mountain Stampers might just be a great choice for you.

Lovely Timeless Tulips

I really enjoy using the Timeless Tulip stamp set and it’s coordinating punch. I’ve shared some card tutorials with you using this bundle and today I’m going to share a few more cards with you that I received in a swap.

These first two cards use just the stamp set and 2 step stamping.

The Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (149488) was used on this first card to give a bit of texture and interest. And this second card done in Melon Mambo uses the sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set (149275) found in the Annual Catalog to create an elegant feel.

It’s a fun fold that opens a bit differently too.

This next card is a 3d Pop Up Card that folds flat for mailing. I love the look, reminds me of a planter filled with tulips.

And finally some punch art, this card uses just the Tulip Builder Punch and our Pigment Sprinkles (149663) to create this fun colorful octopus. I hope you can see all the depth that has been created simply by using the punch and some Stampin’ Dimensionals.

How fun is that? Simply punch in different widths for the octopus’ tentacles and use the leaves for waves under the little guy. I just love it!

So which is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know what you think?

Then stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing some of my card tutorials with you.

Gather Together Pillow Box Treats

Here is a quick and easy treat that hold a few pieces of chocolate that you can put together quickly using our Kraft Pillow Boxes from the Annual Catalog.

How did I make these?

Well I used my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with alcohol and a few drops Pretty Peacock Reinker. I sprayed the Kraft Pillow Box until I got the depth of color I wanted and allowed to dry. If you find your box is getting too wet, allow it to dry between coats of color.

I used my Story Label Punch and punched out the handle before I assembled my pillow box. If you do this before you color it you will get more bleeding on the inside from the spritzing.

Then I decorated as desired.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: To Every Season (150531) and Gather Together (*150589)

Ink: Pretty Peacock (150083/150090), Cajun Craze (147085/119790), Crumb Cake (147116/121029), Terracotta Tile Classic Ink (150886/150093), Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (147931)

Birds of a Feather Table Treats

Today I’m going to share a fun project I made for this weekend’s #OnStage Event in Atlanta. I’ll be giving these out to some friends as table treats – just a little something, something for our sweet tooth.

I really love this set with it’s fun images and couldn’t resist using it for this Thanksgiving project when I found these pumpkin pie Rice Krispies treats with their gold wrappers (rather than their blue ones), I thought to my self it’s perfect! I’m always thinking color coordination when I’m looking at the packaging on the store shelf. Have you ever shopped that way?

Actually they actually are pretty good too. So if you run across them you might want to give them a try too. If not the regular ones will work just as well.

Since I’m taking these to share I thought you might like to make some to share too, so I’ve created a video for you.

Not only do I share how to make the holder, but I’ve also shared how I colored this little turkey with our Stampin’ Blends – I just love their bright bold colors for projects like these!

Team Time fun with the Come to Gather Suite

Last week I held my monthly Team Meeting, it is one of my favorite days of the month. We gather, share, stamp, and enjoy time with each other. I’m blessed with a wonderful team that is also a great group of stampers. Because we all have been stamping for different lengths of time and have different styles, I always look forward to seeing what they have been creating.

Want to see? The theme for our swap this month was fall and none of the projects disappoint!

Here is a great treat box with a drawer that slides out

filled with a banana Twinkie, yum.

And a cute little sticky note holder using our Stitched Nested Label Dies.

And here is a quick and easy wrap for some mini chocolate bars – the sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set found in our Annual Catalog.

And a few more cards

Pat created this next project using our Copper Embossing Powder and the trifold card measurements I shared with you earlier

And this final card uses our Gift of Fall Add On Note Card, the coordinating Paper Pumpkin stamp set, along with the Seasonal Layers Dies and Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I love the way that our Paper Pumpkin Kits coordinating with our products, allowing us to have even more options.

And of course every team meeting includes celebrating accomplishments, stamping, and learning new things too.

We’ll be heading off to our Stampin’ Up! #OnStage event this weekend, a first for many on the team, so you’ll want to stop back by to see what that’s all about. Stampin’ Up! events are always a lot of fun, a chance to meet others who love to stamp, and learn new things, and of course prize patrol is always a hit with everyone! Stampin’ Up! is always generous with its demonstrators.
