Team Time Sharing

Tomorrow is my team craft time, I really enjoy this afternoon of crafting together. It is a purely social event when we gather, bring project we are working on and enjoy each others company. Thinking about it earlier today made me realized I hadn’t shared some of the wonderful projects my team shared with me earlier this month.

So here we go – I love the variety of the projects they make. Such talented stampers they always inspire me with their projects.

This first card is a Pop Up Card that uses the Sailing Home Bundle (151066) and other items you can find in the Suite (152175).

Here is the inside – fun right? And did you know that the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (149481) is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 Free September Designer Series Paper promotion?

And here is a cute movement card using the Over the Moon stamp set (149331)

I just adore these little cows.

And here is a great use of those scraps you have laying around – a strip card using the sentiment from Free as a Bird (149468)

And how about this over sized card using the Daisy Delight Stamp set (143669) and coordinating punches (143713 and 149517) done in Gorgeous Grape?

And finally a fun fold card made with the lovely See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443) another of our wonderful Papers that is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Promotion this month and the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580).

Well that is it for today – tomorrow I’ll share some of the swaps I received recently.

Team Craft Time & More

Tomorrow is my Team Craft Time, this is a monthly event where we gather and craft together – it is a free style event where anything goes and it’s a lot of fun. We simply bring what ever we are working on and enjoy each others company while crafting.

Want to see some of what my team has been working on? Here are some of the swaps from the July meeting earlier this month everyone shared.

These first two cards use the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) and the Memorable Mosaic Stamp Set (149226)

Don’t you love the new Timeless Label Punch (149516)? It not only coordinates with this stamp set, but it’s a great punch for all kinds of sentiments and comes in a Bundle too so you can save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and punch together!

And here is a lovely card made with the Magnolia Blooms stamp set (152729) found in our Experience Creativity brochure.

This brochure is filled with wonderful stamp sets and getting started bundles that are perfect for the new stamper, but great for the avid stamper too since products coordinating with items from the 2019 Annual Catalog, like this stamp set.

And here are two cards using the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) – LOL the swappers were surprised to see they were both inspired by the same project this month!

This first one is done in Grapefruit Grove

and this second one is done is 2018 In Color, Call Me Clover

And this final card is a Inside Block, fancy fold card using the Beauty Abounds stamp set (148726).

Such a fun card and we’ll be learning how Pat made this card during our August meeting – Sharing is the best!

Here are a couple of more pictures from the July Meeting where we always do some Make n’ Take projects and celebrate achievements together

Getting Started with the Stamp Cleaning Pad

Have you seen this great new option for cleaning our stamps? I LOVE this particularly for our Photopolymer stamps since it helps clean those tough stains that discolor our stamps and make it harder to see through them. Check out my quick video showing you more.

Getting Started with the Stamp Cleaning Pad & Refill Video Tutorial

So what do you think? I think it’s a great add on to our Simply Shammy and Stampin’ Scrub cleaning options. Our Stamp Cleaning Pad (147047) is a great deal at just $7.50. You’ll make to make sure you order the Refill (149661) when you order your pad so that you don’t have to worry about running out of this great cleaning option.

Blue Mountain Stampers’ Shoe Box Fun

Ahh… team retreats – there is nothing better than spending time with my peeps and our Team Retreats give us uninterrupted craft time together. Fellowship, sharing, and stamping – What could be better? A Shoe Box Swap of course!

What’s a Shoe Box you ask? Well it is a term we use to describe an event where everyone creates and then brings enough card kits or projects to share and we take turns stamping them. But why call it a shoe box? The idea is everyone puts the supplies in what else? A Shoe Box of course. LOL! You get the idea. Any ways, I also love these afternoons and the sharing.

Here are some of the cards we made during the Shoe Box.

This first one uses the Sailing Home Bundle (151066) and it’s coordinating Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (149481).

And here is a clean and simple card – I love the bright colors and can you see the Wink of Stella we used on the butterfly wings? (Pictures just don’t do justice to the real cards).

The Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) and the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch (148523) make this a quick and easy card to make tons of quickly!

And here is a lovely Acetate Window Card using the Healing Hugs Stamp set (148223), still one of my favorites with it’s Distinktive stamps that make the flowers look so realistic.

And finally a pocket card using the Memorable Mosaic stamp set (149226), Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478), beautiful Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon (149480), and the really fun Flower Faceted Gems (149479). You can find this suite of products with even more coordinating products in our 2019 Annual Catalog on page 119.

Whew! Lots of stamping fun and a great variety of cards too.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing my card tutorial using the Back on Your Feet stamp set. I’ve still got to do the video or I would have shared it with you today. I’m running a bit behind this week already since I was working on my organized swap by mail – more about these cards soon.

Yep – those packages are filled with fantastic cards using stamps from the 2019 Annual Catalog!!! A lot of work, but great fun too!

Butterfly Gala Floating Frame

Today’s project is one that I made for part of my Team gift that I gave everyone attending OnStage in Charlotte this past weekend. It’s a twist on the floating frame cards you’ve been seeing pop up – but this really is a frame lol. I thought it would be great to have a special frame of our stamping friends and a reminder of the wonderful time we had last weekend.

I really like the way the frame turned, out so I thought I’d share a video tutorial with you on how I made them. They are really easy to do. It’s a few days late since the first time I filmed it the file was corrupted so I had to do it again, not sure exactly why, but then that is the way with technology, right?

I’ve used the Stampin’ Blends to color the butterflies and I chose the shades of blue since our Team name is The Blue Mountain Stampers. Get it?

I placed those that I could on their pillows once we arrived in Charlotte.

The bags were stamped using the retiring Bloom by Bloom stamp set (148820) and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper (148795) was used for the tags.

I also used the Large Letter Framelits (141712) that are also on the retirement list for the tags – boy, do I hate to see these go, I use them all the time! Get yours before the supply is gone.

And here is a close up of the back.

Want to see how I made these Butterfly Gala floating frames?

Here is a video for you and of course a PDF tutorial too. I’ve also included a complete supply list below for you so you can make some too. So keep scrolling since it is at the very bottom!

Butterfly Gala Floating Frame Video Tutorial

Butterfly Gala Floating Frame Tutorial PDF

Last Chance List Update:

Retirement List: Please note that I’ve updated the PDF with items that are carrying over noted. They are both highlighted and * is behind their names. These items are being reconfigure and will only be offered in our new Cling offering in the 2019 Annual Catalog. Please let me know if you have any questions I know that the lists can be a bit confusing. The easiest way to see everything is in my Online Store HERE.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’m hoping to post some of the fun of OnStage with you – today I’m heading to the vet. Our four legged family member, Chewie decided to have a run in with the fence and lost on Friday night while I was gone to OnStage.

Poor thing. She has needed a lot of extra attention since I’ve been home and is not liking the confinement needed so she can heal.

Enjoy!

Tea Together & more

Today’s projects were all part of this month’s Team Swaps – I love the variety of projects that my team always shares and so I wanted to share them with you too!

This first one uses the Tea Together stamp set (148779), Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (148551) that you can find in the Occasions Catalog along with our Tufted Embossing Folder (146335).

If you love this card you’ll be happy to know if you didn’t get the coordinating Tea Time Framelits Dies for FREE during Sale-a-bration, they will be available again in June since they are part of the 2019 Annual Catalog. So you can get the set now and start stamping and then get the dies later!

And do you recognize where the word love is from? It’s from our Well Written Framelits Dies (148534) If you haven’t seen this bundle of products found on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog you’ll want to check it out. It’s a wonderful set of sentiments and dies that make up endless options.

This next card uses a favorite set of mine Dandelion Wishes (146744/146747)

along with the Subtle Embossing Folder (143706) – if you don’t have this folder you’ll want it since it adds just a touch of texture to any project! The pop of Lovely Lipstick matting this focal point is lovely with the Grapefruit Grove. A combination I wouldn’t have thought of.

And how about this fun Cross Over Gate Fold Butterfly Gala (148580) card?

I love the way it opens – I can’t wait to try this fold soon –

And now for the 3d projects – I always love the fact we can create great little gifts like these with paper and ink!

Easter is right around the corner and this little kiss basket is perfect

and this little basket made with our Scallop Tag Topper Punch (133324)

Vibrant Vases & More Team Fun

Here is another group of cards my team made – Team Time is fun time and I’ve got a great group of creative crafters as you can tell from yesterday and today’s projects!

How about the bright and cheerful Vibrant Vases stamp set (148656) used to create this card to start with.

Our 2018 In Color, Lovely Lipstick has been teamed up with our Pool Party Classic Ink to create this colorful vase. Dimension has been added with the Vase Builder Punch (147040) that coordinates with the set. And the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (146963) and Dynamic Subtle Embossing Folder (143706) adds interest and texture.

The fun Twisted Card fold has been teamed up with our Abstract Impressions (147513) sentiment which is perfect for this project since Wanda designed it to hold a little pack of flower seeds. And of course the flower image is part of our Beauty Abounds stamp set (148726). One of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog.

And I just love purple, so this fun card made with the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) and the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 149622) is a perfect combination.

Sue made it even more fun by curving the words around the focal point on the inside.

And yes this was done by cutting the sentiment stamp apart. (Gasp! I know, but trust me it’s ok – the photopolymer stamps make this easy to line up on your block when you want it all in one line again.)

And finally this soft and lovely card made with the Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper (146916) and the Painted Glass stamp set (147458/147461).

Team Winter Weekend Retreat Swaps

This past weekend I had the privilege of gathering with my team for our 7th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat – A full 3 days of fellowship, fun and of course stamping.

I love these weekends since it’s a chance for everyone to let their hair down and relax during this extended period of time together. We share, learn, and get to know each other a bit better. It’s like a big slumber party with your best friends –

On Saturday afternoon we hold our Shoe box Swap and I always love to see what everyone comes up with. So today I thought I’d share some of the cards with you that my team members did.

These first two cards use the Classic Garage Suite of products found on page 42-43 of the Occasions Catalog.

I just love this suite of products and the Geared Up Garage Bundle (148590) with it’s coordinating dies. Perfect for creating card for the dudes in our lives. After all does anyone know a guy who doesn’t like cars?

And this next card uses the Beauty Abounds Bundle (150617). If you love this bundle as much as I do why not sign up for my February Class? Not only will you be able to get this great bundle in the class we’ll spend the afternoon making projects together. Click HERE to learn more about my Beauty Abounds Class.

If you haven’t seen this Specialty Designer Series Paper yet in person – it is absolutely gorgeous! The Floral Romance pack includes two different Vellum patterns along with 2 double sided patterns. So it’s a great value since you’ll get multiples of each.

And how about this card made with the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163) found in the Annual Catalog on page 140? We used this simple technique of stamping twice. Once onto the card front and again onto to the circles to add a pop of color.


And here is a fun technique card Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) and Daisy Punch (143713) from the Annual Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580). And the All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576) both can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Watch some tutorials coming soon for these fancy folds – I hope to work on them in the next week or so.
