Country Livin’

Do you sometimes put something you are working on aside and think – oh I’ll get back to that? I know I have a stack of things and I recently went through it to clean up my craft room. I was excited when I found this card that I did during a shoe box swap. I had not done a nice job as I wanted on some of the parts since I was in a hurry and so was going to fix it when I got home. LOL Fast forward…. you know how that goes.

Well I got it done with a few changes since it had been so long, but I really like how it turned out.

I’m afraid I don’t have any information on who shared this project, but I still love the original card that inspired me.

Masculine cards are always great to have on hand and this set is a particular favorite of mine for the guys in my life.

Well that is it for today – stop back by tomorrow when I will be sharing a fun little treat that you can whip up for St. Patty’s Day or other special occasion. Till then… Happy Stamping!

#imbringingbirthdaysback with the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set

Today’s card is the one I designed for my November Birthday cards that I’ll be sending out today. This birthday card uses a fun technique that is one of my favorites to create fall colored leaves. It is called the Baby Wipe Technique.

This card layout is also one of my favorites since it is clean and simple but still packs a wow. And with the Baby Wipe Technique everyone will wonder how you created leaves with fall color too.

I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial so you can recreate the Baby Wipe Technique for your projects!

And if you want to make some of these cards here is my video showing you how the card is put together too.

Country Road & More

I’m feeling a little bit country today and this set has a wonderful nostalgic feel to it for me and I almost missed it in the Annual Catalog. I’m a country girl at heart and grew up among the dairy farms of Wisconsin so these images remind me of my childhood and the country side dotted by red barns.

Today’s cards are done in our neutrals and make great masculine cards. This firsts card is done with Crumb Cake and Basic Black – a monochromatic card that is striking.

And this second card uses our new colors, Gray Granite and Merry Merlot along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper –

a bit of Silver Embossing and Silver Mini Sequins add a bit more texture to the card. Can you see the plants stamped in the background of the wheel and weather vain? It just adds a hint of interest and texture.

And how about this card done with the Artisan Texture, Enjoy Life and Stitched All Around stamp sets.

I love the way the Linen Thread is applied to the card strip – an easy technique, but it adds a lot of interest.

So, have a favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like and why?

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Country Road (147466/147469), Artisan Textures (146570/141781), Enjoy Life (148190),  and Stitched All Around (146629/146632)

I love the way this fancy fold card uses the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack (144177) to give you the feel of weathered barn wood.

And this card using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies (141706) and Hexagons Embossing Folder (143231) has lots of texture. Do you recognize the sentiment?

It’s from the Pretty Kitty stamp set (141861/141864).

The Gallery Grunge set gives you all kinds of great images to create backgrounds and texture.

Nailed It On Stage Swaps & More!

This past Saturday was Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage event – and can you say WOW! I was blown away by the swaps and NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalog and think you will be too! Deborah and I hit the road for Savannah early Friday morning.

I’ll be sharing more about On Stage and the new goodies in future posts, but today I wanted to share with you a couple of the swap cards I made and some swaps I received.

This first card I made using the Swan Lake stamp set (142974/142977) and our In Color Dapper Denim. I used the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color the beak and add a little shimmer to the water. This stack of 2016 In Color Designer Series Paper #141408 is on the retirement list so get yours before its gone HERE).

Here are some more cards made with our Designer Series Paper Stacks which are all on the retirement list.

this first swap from Cindy uses the Baby Bear stamp set (141859) and the Neutrals Stack of Designer Series Paper (138435).

And this next one if is done in our Dapper Denim again. Barbara used the Custom Tee Bundle (144724) from our Occasions Catalog that is retiring.

And Karen created this classic color combo card using the retiring items Botanical Builders Framelits Dies (140625) and Tin of Cards stamp set (138946) and the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (138435). I’m really going to miss this set since I love the font and the size of the sentiments.

Dragonfly Dreams done in Peekaboo Peach! Love the way Michelle used the Basic Rhinestones (119246) for the eyes.

And finally my Nailed it swap – It was based on my son’s birthday card that I made earlier. You can see that card HERE.

You’ll find the complete supply list below. I can’t tell you how sad I am that this bundle won’t be available after the Occasions Catalog ends. Of course the stamp sets on the retirement list are guaranteed until May 22nd, but our accessories and bundles are only while supplies last. See the complete Retirement List HERE.

Here is another card made with the Nailed It Bundle and Urban Underground Designer Series Paper (142783) that I received in a swap. I just love this suite of products found in the Occasions Catalog on page 47 – the colors are wonderful for masculine cards.

As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new catalogs is a very exciting AND a  huge perk of being a Demonstrator – after all who wouldn’t want to be first? right!  If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too! (Join in the next couple of days and you can even  join my team for our On Stage Online Event this Friday evening.)

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Nailed It (*143074/143077) and Better Together (141733/141736)
