Card Maker’s Class

This week is my monthly Card Maker’s Class.  If you live local to me come join me and make some cards this month.  I have this class set up at the end of the month so that you can make your cards and have them ready to go for the following month.  There is always an assortment to choose from.  And this month I’ll be including a couple of choices for Valentine’s Day too.  There are always Birthday cards to choose from – here is a new one for this month.

Celebrate You!

Have you seen all the fun items you can earn FREE during the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion?  This annual promotion runs through the end of March.  With a $50 product order you can earn FREE products.  And this year they added a second tier level.  So with a $100 order you can get some special new items for FREE!  There are 2 level 2 choices – one is a beautiful stamp set and the other is a set of Thinlits.  Let me show those to you today.

celebrate-you-SAB-swap

The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies are one of your level 2 choices and I used the Celebrate on this card.  The Thinlits coordinate with the Amazing You stamp set – that’s where the word YOU comes from on this card.  But there is also a die in the set with the word YOU.  Plus a third die that says amazing.  I love the word dies – they make quick and easy cards.

I did use one more Sale-A-Bration choice on this card and that’s the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper.  But this card would be fun with any designer paper and color combination.

Watch this quick video showing the Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You Thinlits.

I’ve been planning to blog all week and I just haven’t gotten to it.  My house is a total disaster.  We are doing renovations – a lot!  It’s a project that started a couple of months ago to replace our dining room table and our sofa.  It has grown to so much more and I’m so ready for it to be done.  Every room in my house has been impacted.  If there isn’t work going on in that room then the room is full of stuff from the other rooms.  My poor dogs are so confused.  And please don’t open any closets – they are filled right now.  I think this is why people move after a certain period of time – it’s too much trouble to do all this work and live in the house with your stuff.  We have lived in this house for 24 years now.  And we will stay here for a long time.

I hope you are having a great week.  I know around here the kids are happy – school holiday on Monday, and weather related school closures Wednesday – Friday.  Yes they had a 1 day school week.  The weather is making our renovation project stretch out – I had really hoped today they would be done and out of here.  But they will be back next week…….

The perfect birthday card

If you are like me the number on your birthday keeps getting higher!  The Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits are perfect for making the “perfect” birthday card.  Because you can celebrate 29 again!  and again! and again!

29-again-card

For this card I also used the Embossing Paste to create the background.  But this time I created a mask using a die to cut through a Window Sheet.  The Window Box Thinlits has the die with the birthday candles.  I cut a piece of window sheet that would cover the front of the card.  Then ran the die through cutting multiple images of the candles over and over.

The paste was colored with the Lemon Lime Twist ink refill.  Then use the mask to apply the paste to the Pool Party layer.  While that dries, stamp and cut the 29.  The Lemon Lime Twist cotton ribbon is wrapped around the layer and tied with the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  If you pull the ends between your finger nails you can give them a curl – it’s like curling ribbon that you use for wrapping presents!

Tangerine Tango, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist are a fun and bright combination!  I finished the card with some Tangerine Tango star Enamel Shapes.

Enjoy being 29 again! and again!  and again!

Label Me Pretty Birthday

The new Pretty Label Punch is quickly becoming one of my new go to punches.  If you pair it with the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set (they are available as a bundle) you can make some quick cards and tags.

Today I have a quick and easy birthday card.  It’s a great little layout perfect for using up some strips of designer paper and/or ribbon or even use washi tape.

Label-me-pretty

This card features the new Berry Burst In-Color but also includes 3 other In-colors.  I used the In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers for 2017-2019 to color the stamped image – Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist.

Underneath the stamped & punched image are little strips of Designer Paper from the Fresh Florals Designer series Paper stack – I used all 4 of the Berry Burst Prints and then added a little piece of the Berry Burst Woven Ribbon.  I finished the cards with some Rhinestone jewels.

This would be an easy card to switch out to different colors using other strips of paper that are on your craft table.  Enjoy!

Thanks for checking in today.

Embossing Paste Butterfly

Have you tried the new Embossing Paste from Stampin’ Up!?

It is my favorite new accessory product in the catalog.  So easy and fun to use.  I posted earlier a card where I colored the paste.  This one today just uses it as is – white.

embossin-paste-card

The brick mask is a fun one too – it’s perfect for backgrounds.  I used just a small amount of paste through the mask to create the brick back ground that is just partially filled in and not a solid wall, like a crumbling wall in an old garden.

The butterfly is just fluttering by.  It’s the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  Two-step stamping – but really this butterfly is a three-step on the wings.  The base layer – the most solid layer is in Soft Sky ink.  The second layer – the other edges – is Pool Party ink.  The third layer – the details – is Bermuda Bay ink.  Then a fourth one is the body in Soft Suede ink.  The Bold Butterfly Framelits cut out this butterfly for you so you don’t have to fussy cut.

TIP!!! Here is a tip for you – stamp the wings – all three layers and then cut it out.  Stamp the body after you cut it so you get it in the right spot.  The stamps are photopolymer so you can see through.  I find it best if you can stand while stamping and look directly over the top of it.
