Hello Spring!

Hello Spring!

Spring is all around us now in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.  Southern springs are never boring, though, with snow showers this morning and a forecast high of 75 tomorrow!

So long to Sale-A-Bration 2019

This year’s Sale-A-Bration Items were just fantastic!  I’ve got just a couple of cards I’d like to share before we say our final farewells, though, to give you some ideas for how to use those fabulous Sale-A-Bration Items you earned!  The Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper was one of my absolute favorites.

Good news!!  The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder will be returning in the new 2019-2010 Annual Catalog.  Yay!  Here’s a card I created using it with Vellum Cardstock, then coloring with Stampin’ Blends.

Country Floral Vellum

I created the frame using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (love!) on Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  The Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon was just the right finishing touch.

At a party last week, we made butterfly projects using the Country Floral Embossing Folder, the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, and the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set on a Whisper White Note Card and a Mini Pizza Box.  The ladies had great fun making them!

FAREWELL TO THE 2017-2019 InColors

At our Crafting on the Hill April Team Meeting, we created three cards using the retiring 2017-2019 InColors Assortment. Stampin’ Up! has a great variety of punches that coordinate with lots of stamp sets, and we used several for this project. The daisy from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Berry Burst, then punched using the coordinating Daisy Punch.  We also used the Detailed Trio Punch, the Pretty Label Punch and the Leaf Punch. Shop for these retiring InColors before they’re gone!  Find all of these products on my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net. 

retiring colors 17 to 19PAPER PUMPKIN IS GOING TO BE “DISTINKTIVE” IN APRIL!!

So what are “Distinktive” Stamps and what makes them special?

  1. Distinktive stamps give you photo-realistic images with just one stamp. They have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step.
  2. These stamps are available only from Stampin’ Up! and are made using a patent-pending process.
  3. Distinktive stamps are available in red rubber and photopolymer; Paper Pumpkin’s April kit includes photopolymer stamps.
  4. Shop Distinktive stamps in my online store by searching “Distinktive,” or look for the Distinktive icon in Stampin’ Up! catalogs.

Sale-A-Brate with Country Floral

SPRING is finally here and, naturally, it puts one to thinking about sunshine and flowers!  The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is the perfect touch for spring projects and it’s a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item with any $50 Product Order.

COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER

That’s right.  It’s FREE with any $50 Product Order!  This can help you make such beautiful projects, and it’s so versatile!

 

For this card, I used Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink and Cardstock.  I inked the Country Floral Embossing Folder with Powder Pink Stampin’ Ink, then placed a piece Whisper White Cardstock in the Folder and ran it through the Big Shot.  I loved the subtle elegance!  I ran a piece of the Powder Pink Cardstock through the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the base, then punched out a piece of it from the center using the Story Label Punch, a Sale-A-Bration Coordination Item available for purchase.  The sentiment is from the Part of My Story Cling Stamp Set  and is also a Sale-A-Bration Item FREE with any $50 Product Order.

Country Floral EF pink

I just couldn’t resist pairing this folder with a piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper Sale-A-Bration Item.  I used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist (retiring soon!) Cardstock and the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack for the ribbon.  An elegant touch!

I love working with Stampin’ Up’s Vellum Cardstock, so I ran it through the Country Floral Embossing Folder, then used Stampin’ Blends to add touches of color to accent some of the elements.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set found in the Occasions Catalog. The Calypso Coral Twine is from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit.
