Another Little Ladybug Tutorial

It’s time for another card tutorial! I created this little card for my Team Winter Retreat Shoe Box Swap a couple of weeks ago and set it aside to share with you.

Unfortunately, it got buried on my desk. I tend to set things in a safe place so that I can find them later. And then well, can’t. lol, Do you ever have that problem? Well you’re in luck since today I found the card and I’m sharing this project along with some of the other Shoe Box Swaps that I made too.

Here is a quick video tutorial for you and the PDF with a complete supply list.

And here are some of the fun Shoe Box Swaps that I made during the Winter Weekend Retreat. This first card uses three of our lovely Sale-a-bration items the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (152284) and the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (152288) with their coordinating Lily Pad Dies (152315)

This next card uses one of our great masculine choices from the Mini Catalog, Clubhouse (151583) This stamp set is part of our Country Club Suite of Products (153930)

I love how the little tufts of grass and sentiment are placed on the inside panel.

And how about this next card uses products from the Tropical Oasis Suite (153941)? They’ve been teamed up with the free Sale-a-bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Pack (152314) that you can earn when you purchase the Timeless Tropical Bundle (153811).

And a fun card uses our Best Dressed Suite (153926), after all who doesn’t love shoes?

And finally this vintage feeling card uses the Very Versailles (149275) and Butterfly Gala (148580) stamp sets found in the Annual Catalog.

Whew. There was a lot of stamping going on during our 8th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat. It’s hard to believe I’ve been holding this event for my team for 8 years already! The time has flown by with a lot of sharing and laughter.

Dressed to Impress Shoe Box Swap Tutorial

As promised today I’ll be sharing the card I designed for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Shoe Box Swap that I hosted last weekend. I really love the way this card turned out. Lovely Lipstick just seemed to be a perfect choice for this card since I was choosing the lipstick image.

I’ve used the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper stack for this project since I really like the fact it has both lovely floral patterns on one side and then graphic patterns on the other that play off the stamp set images. Great for all kinds of occasions cards this spring.

I’ve put together a video tutorial for you along with my standard PDF with the complete supply list and step by step how to.

This first card was created using the From My Heart Suite of products (153931) and is perfect for that someone special.

The lovely From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (151189) has been teamed up with our Heart Doilies (151191) and Form My Heart Faceted Gems (151154). Do you recognize the little hearts? It from the Stitched Be Mine (148527) Dies from the Annual Catalog. One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up! is the coordination they give us so you can use our new products with ones you already have!

This next card uses our Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms (152290) that you can earn for FREE when placing a qualifying order.

It also uses the fun Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Combo Pack (152314) another item in our Sale-a-bration Brochure that’s you’ll have fun using on your projects.

Something for Everything Note Card Tutorial

Today’s card was created using the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms and the Something for Everyone set from the December’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. Since the kit contained a sentiment set I thought this image heavy set was a great choice to create a variety of projects with.

Here is the Note Card that I made.

Here is a quick video showing you how I made this card and see how I put it together.

Lovely Lily Pad Easel Calendar

It’s a week of tutorials and today I’ll be starting with a project that uses several of our FREE Sale-a-bration products that coordinate together. When I first saw this Sale-a-bration option I knew it was one I wanted to add to my collection and would reach for over and over again! I shared with you my January #imbringingbirthdaysback birthday card I made earlier HERE.

And since I thought it would be a lot of fun to kick the year off with calendars for my stamping friends here is what I came up with.

I’m still in the process of putting them together, but I wanted to share this with you – so if you’re a customer of mine watch for one coming to your mail box soon!

Can you name the set the sentiment is from without looking?

The “Happy Day” sentiment for this project is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Itty Bitty Greetings. This set holds 32 greetings that cover all kinds of occasions, so it’s a great value and wonderful to team up with your favorite image sets.

Easel fancy folds are perfect for setting this calendar up on your desk and enjoying it though out the year, and with this Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper it’s like looking at a little piece of art.

Want to make one too? I’ve got a video and pdf tutorial for you today.

To Every Season Thank You Card

I do love a stamp set that has great images for both cards and treats, add the fact that it has punches and it’s sure to be on my wish list. Today’s project is a thank you card that I’ve whipped up using the To Every Season Bundle’ fall option.

I’ve chosen to highlight our Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scallop Ribbon on this project since I love the look and feel of this ribbon AND I love the fact I can get it in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In Colors!

Here is the card I created for my November Thank You cards.

While right at the moment it feels like winter here in North Georgia with our 20 degree wake up this morning, it really is fall. In fact the leaves on the mountain sides are simply beautiful right now and were at their peak I think. After our late 90 degree weather and this early blast of arctic cold I think mother nature is a bit confused.

Any how would you like to see how I made this card? Why not check out my Video Tutorial?
