Adventurous Sky

The thrill of the open skies and freedom to fly. The biplane reminds me of the movies from WWI and Snoopy. Yes Snoopy, the Flying Ace, sitting on his roof with his scarf flying behind him battling the Red Baron.

The Take to the Sky Suite of Products (163832) is filled with wonderful images and sentiments perfect for those men in our lives and ladies too who love the adventures of the sky.

This Suite includes the Adventurous Sky Bundle (163447) that is currently part of our Bundle Sale that ends on Sunday, June 30th.

Check out these cards that were created with the Suite. This first card uses one of the tags from the Take to the Sky Designer Series Paper (163436) and a bit of the plane pattern paper.

A bit of stamping using the industrial stamp image has been done on the Smoky Slate panel using Smoky Slate Classic Ink for a tone on tone look that is subtle. The tag has been layered onto a piece of Copper Clay Card stock and Paper Snips have been used to copy the angle of the tag. A bit of our Pebble Path 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim (161637) has been used on the tag and adds some texture to the card.

These next two cards step it up with some fun folds. This first card uses the Center Panel Pop Out Fun Fold.

with just a couple of score lines you’ve got a great card that will stand up.

The Take to the Sky Designer Series Paper (163436) adds a quick and easy background to this card. The Perennial Postage Dies (162607) have been used to cut out the sentiment and the fun little Industrial Trinkets (163450) add some shine and texture to the project. Add a quick signature panel to the back and your set to send!

And finally a card using not only a fun fold called the Twisted Fold, but also a simple technique!

This card uses simple stamping and the plane and clouds stamped in Boho Blue as it’s focal point that has been layered on our Stylish Shapes Dies (159183). The plane has one of those fun Industrial Trinkets (163450) for the center of it’s propeller. The card base has been dry embossed using the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder (160580) and a bit of

packing tape was applied over the top of the two panels giving it a metallic shine. Such a quick and easy technique that definitely gives this fun fold a wow factor.

#OnStage Houston and more

Whew. I’m catching back up after returning from Houston and the fantastic Stampin’ Up! event there. So today I thought I’d share some photos and some of the swaps I received during the event.

Stampin’ Up! outdid themselves with this event and the excitement was high – it’s been along time since we have been able to gather like this. My husband, Larry joined me for this event since we have family in Houston and would spend some time with them after.

Yep, that’s my cutie enjoying a bit of lazy river time on top of the Marriott with myself and other demonstrators before check in time for the event. He seemed to enjoy the energy that surrounded him and I had a hard time getting him to give me back my bag as I got ready for the General Session to start. Check out the goodies our Summer Splash trimmed backpack was filled with. A fun crafting bag tucks in the bottom and slides out through the pocket and a coordinating pencil “cup” bag in our new In Color Pretty in Pink.

A wonderful beginning for sure where I had a lovely opportunity to connect with some new stamping friends. A quick dinner at the Saltgrass Steak House with some yummy food

and then on to After Hours and some on hand stamping fun with new products from the 2024 Annual Catalog!

Hundreds of us filled the space for an full evening of stamping, laughter, and fun. Everyone was excited to see the new products and In Colors! They sure didn’t disappoint. I choose one of the Bundles, Spotlight on Nature (163579) that was offered since it has some great images and basic shape dies.

I’m looking forward to sharing these projects and more with you soon. Along with more photos from the event throughout this week.

Now how about some swaps? I thought I’d share of my Easter swaps with you since it is right around the corner. There were some really cute projects swapped for Easter here are a few that I received.

This first one is a fun little 3d treat holder that uses the Diaper Fold.

This little treat uses our Excellent Eggs Bundle (Retiring 162808) and our Subtles Designer Series Paper (Retiring 161644). And this soft and sweet card also uses the Excellent Eggs Dies (Retiring 162807) in the background for the little bunny but has a totally different feel to it.

The sentiment has been punched out using the Double Oval Punch (Retiring 154242) and the sweet little bow was created using the 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon Combo Pack (Retiring 161635). Sweet, right?

And finally a bright and cheerful card using the Easter Bunny Stamp set (Retiring 160272) and Easter Bunny Punch (Retiring 160331).

Isn’t the little pompom adorable for the tail? Colored with Crumb Cake Blends to pull in the dry embossed background using the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder (160580) and cheerful Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (Retiring 163170). The Stylish Shapes Dies (159183) were used to cut both the opening for the bunny and sentiment.

That’s it for the day. Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more photos and swaps with you.

In the Country

Did you know that we have a lovely set that has some wonderful sketched images in it called In the Country (Sale-a-bration 160828) as one of your Sale-a-bration choices?

I love sets like this since they are so easy to work with, make wonderful monochromatic cards, and add your favorite sentiments to. Today I’m sharing some cards using the landscape image from the set that I received in a swap. While each of them use the same image they have a different feel to them based on their color choices and accessories chosen. This first one uses simple stamping along

The image and sentiment has been stamped in Early Espresso and the texture in the background was created with VersaMark and the Drybrush Background stamp (152599). And this next card uses the Crumb Cake to create a softer image.

The NEW Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder (160580) gives it a more intense feeling of texture in the background. And for a pop of color how about this last card using the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper (160836) and the Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequims (160387)?

the sentiment has been punched out with the Label Me Fancy Punch (151297) and popped up. The bit of Burlap Ribbon (160386) from our combo pack adds a bit more texture.

Like I said same set, but yet so different. Don’t you love that about stamping? I know I do!
