More It Starts with Art

Have you seen this set filled with wonderful crafting images? I really enjoy using it and wanted to share some more swaps that I received using this suite of products found on pages 52-54 of the Annual Catalog.

I really love the color combination of the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (149489) combined with our In Colors Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose on this first card which uses a fancy fold.

Isn’t it great how all our products work together? While these two colors are not in the Designer Series Paper they work to create a rich color pallet for this card.

And here are some more cards that use the colors listed in the Designer Series Paper itself.

So what do you think? Can you see the possibilities? Why not stop by my online store and see all the coordinating products in this Suite?

Goooooaaaaalllll

It Starts with Art Tutorial

Today’s card is one that I created to share along time ago but it got buried on my desk, ugh. But that means you’re in luck today since I’m sharing it today. LOL!

The card uses the Follow Your Art Suite of Products that can be found on page 53 of the Annual Catalog – this Suite is filled with wonderful products that speak to me since I’m a life long crafter of all kinds of crafts, starting as a child with learning how to embroider. Remember those iron on x patterns for our first samplers? I think my first project was a pillow case edge. How about you? What was your first project?

I love the fact that this Suite contains different kinds of crafting images and items – perfect for all kinds of crafters young and young at heart.

Any how here is my project that I created for my OnStage Team event back in April.

And how about a video too?

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.

And of course it is always nice to have the printable version to along with the complete supply list for reference.
