Love Anniversary Card

Hi Stampers!

I'm back!  I'm going to try to be a good blogger.  I hope I can.  It's been a very busy couple months and with the non-stop snow and craziness at work I just haven't had the time or motivation to post.  This weather just puts me in such a grumpy mood all of the time.  I'm counting down the days until spring!
Today I have an anniversary card to share with you.  This card was cased from one that I saw in an issue of Stampin' Success magazine.  That's the SU demonstrator exclusive magazine which is chock full of ideas and inspiration for paper crafting.  I love it!

I sent this one to my cousins for their wedding anniversary.  I know she LOVES Pool Party, so I had to include that color on the card!


I was a little worried about putting the In Color Boutique Details embellishment though the mail, but my cousin reported that the card arrived in good condition!  Yay Postal Service!!!

All of the items used to create this card can be purchased from my online shop: SHOP HERE

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Champagne Glitter Paper

June 2013 In Color Club Card Sample

Hi Stampers!

Today I'd like to share with you the card sample I made for my June In Color club members.  Every month when I bundle up the In Color packets, I love including a little card as my thank you to those who participated for the month.  It's also a fantastic way to showcase that month's color!  

The color for June was Baked Brown Sugar!  This is a great neutral color.  I think it falls somewhere between Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.  Combine all three of those colors and you have a fantastic monochrome color palette for a masculine card.  Anyway, I'm getting off topic here!  

For this sample, I used the triple time stamping technique in a different way.  I made a banner shape rather than just a rectangle.  The Swallowtail stamp is such a nice image to use for this technique.  I layered the image with some Very Vanilla card stock.  I sponged the edges and made some custom embellishments with the new clay and molds from Stampin' Up!

I made some cards with two flowers and some cards with just the one largest flower.  I think both look really pretty!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Whisper White notecards, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: Swallowtail
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar Stampin' Pad and Refill
Other: Simply Pressed Clay, Simply Pressed Molds, Sponge Dauber

Stampin' Tip: If you find that your adhesive of choice is not working for the clay flowers, try just a little dab of Crystal Effects!  Make sure you allow it time to dry.

Friendship Preserves Day 5

Hi Stampers!

Today I have a masculine card for you! Yaaaaay!!!!  I think masculine cards are the one project type that everyone is always asking about.  Today's card also has some small components on it....a great way to use up some scraps!

Framelits are just so great!  Not only can you use them to cut out the shape it's designed for, but the negative of the cut out is a great design element as well!

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Early Espresso, Whisper White
DSP: Comfort Cafe
Ink: Midnight Muse
Stamps: Friendship Preserves
Big Shot: Window Frames Framelits, Woodgrain Embossing Folder (love this item!!!)
Other: Curly Label Punch, Linen Thread (Often overlooked in the catalog, but it is a "manly" ribbon!)

Have a great Stampin' Day!  Don't forget about the Online Extravaganza, going on until November 28th!

Button Buddies Day 2

Hi Stampers!

I'm back with the second card from my Button Buddies class.  I just love the bunch of cherries stamp from the set.  It's my favorite one of them all!  I have a really fun cherry apron that I received at my bridal shower.  It was the inspiration for this card because the colors on the apron are Real Red and Gumball Green!

It's hard to see in this picture, but I have bent up the ends of the strips of DSP just to give it a little more dimension.

Stampin' Supplies:
·      5 ½” x 8 1/2” and 2 1/8” x 2 1/8” Whisper White Cardstock

Rhode Island Regional Swap #2

Hi Stampers!

I'm back with my second swap from Regionals.  On this card I really wanted to keep it simple!  I like cards that don't take a lot of time to make.  This is a great card to make if you are a beginning stamper as well. Plus it features a great technique - Two Step Stampin'!

Look at how simple this card is!  It's simple, yet so much fun!  Wouldn't you love to receive a card like this in the mail??  Don't you just love that designer series paper?  I can't get enough of the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper. I had to order a second pack of it so I wouldn't run out of any of the patterns.

Here's a close up of the Two Step Stampin' technique.  I also added some Dazzling Details to the center to give a little extra sparkle!

Stampin' Tip!
When you are doing Two Step Stampin', do not get hung up on trying to align the two stamps perfectly.  They are not meant to match up.  It's purposely supposed to look a little like coloring outside of the lines.  I know it's hard to let go of being a perfectionist, but when you are Two Step Stampin' you just have to go with the flow!  You will have a lot more fun stamping with this technique if you do! :-)

Stampin' Supplies:

Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Whisper White
DSP: International Bazaar
Stamps: Kindness Matters, Reason to Smile
Ink: Island Indigo, Calypso Coral
Other: Dazzling Details

Rhode Island Regional Swap #1

Hi Stampers!

I'm back from the Rhode Island Regional Event.  What an amazing time!  I came home so inspired!  It's definitely one of the best perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  I did quite a bit of swapping while I was out at the Regional.  Today I'm going to show you the first swap I made.

This is a really easy CAS (Clean And Simple) card to make.  I love that it features all five of our new In Colors.  For a little extra glitz I added the Basic Rhinestones!

Here's a close up of the sentiment tag.  I sponged the ends of it with Midnight Muse and popped it up on dimensionals to make it stand out on the white background.

Swap Prep Tip!
If you are swapping a card like this (whether with your stamping friends or at an event) the best way to go about it is to stamp all the images of one color first.  Also stamp the lightest color first.  So I went about making these cards by stamping all of the Summer Starfruit flowers first, followed by the Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, etc.

Wouldn't this make a great birthday or get well soon card as well?  How would you take it to the next level?

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Gumball Green
Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Sweet Essentials
Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse
Other: Modern Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Sponge Dauber, Dimensionals
