Beautiful Blizzard

Beautiful Blizzard

At the October Christmas Cards Class, we had some fun with Shimmer Paint and the Beautiful Blizzard Stamp Set.  This Stamp Set makes gorgeous Christmas cards quickly and easily!

Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set

I decided to use a combination of Pool Party and Night of Navy.

blizzard shimmer

First we stamped the “sploosh” from the Beautiful Blizzard Stamps Set onto Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  In a Stampin’ Spritzer filled about 2/3 with rubbing alcohol, I added a couple of drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint.  We lightly spritzed the “sploosh” images with that mixture, then set it aside a couple of minutes to dry.  After it was dry, we stamped the snowflakes in Night of Navy.  I also stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy.  For another “sparkly” layer, I added a couple of rhinestones. Lots of snowy beauty!

I also used the Pool Party and Night of Navy color combo with the second card.  The snowflakes are from the Colorful Seasons Thinlits Dies set.  I used Champagne Foil paper.  Sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy and punched out using the Everyday Label Punch.

Beautiful Blizzard is a perfect holiday stamps set, and it has a coordinating die to create even more projects!  Get the Bundle on my online store and save 10%!

 

 

Cableknit Christmas

For this card, I decided to go with the classical elegance of red, black and white.  I used Real Red Cardstock for the background, then the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the top layer.  The sentiment from Timeless Tidings is stamped in Real Red and mounted on Real Red Cardstock cut using the Starburst Punch.  Red Rhinestones and Basic Black 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon were the perfect finishing touches.

Festive Farmhouse DSP Christmas

The Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper is just perfect for fall and Christmas projects, and I love this plaid!  I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on the Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Cardstock to add some depth and dimension.  The sentiment from Beautiful Blizzard is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.

Tin Tile and Shimmer Paint

October Fast and Fabulous Cards Class

Lots of fun cards at the October monthly Fast and Fabulous Cards Class.  We used two new products found in the 2018 Holiday Catalog, the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint.  Crafty, creative FUN!

Tin tile with copper

I used a 5″ X 3 3/4″ piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It was beautiful just like that, but I really wanted to use the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint to make the pattern pop.  I mixed a few drops of Soft Suede reinker and a couple of drops of the Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge it randomly over the Crumb Cake.  Love the shine and shimmer it created!

I mounted it on a 5 1/4″ x  4″ piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock, which was mounted on a Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock base.  The sentiment is mounted on a piece of the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper.

We used Lovely As A Tree, one of Stampin’ Up’s oldest stamps sets, to create another fall card, stamped with the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.

lovely as a tree colored

Again, I used the Sponge Daubers in Grapefruit Grove, Cajun Craze and Daffodil Delight for the fall colors on the trees, then sponged Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake for the grass.  It’s mounted on Cajun Craze Cardstock.  The Rooted in Nature Designer Series Paper at the bottom is mounted on Mossy Meadow Cardstock and the Petal Palette Sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

For the third card, I went with something totally different and totally vintage.

Very vintage blue

For many years, I’ve loved blue and white china and even have a blue and white plate inherited from my maternal grandmother, which I still treasure.  So when I first saw this lovely Very Vintage Hostess Stamp Set in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, I knew I had to stamp it in blue.  The new InColor Blueberry Bushel is the perfect blue!  I stamped off the lace images, but stamped the flowers and sentiment full strength, then mounted it on a piece of scalloped oval Blueberry Bushel.

This Very Vintage Stamp Set is available to order with any $150 order, OR if you host a party for me and have $150 in sales.  Contact me to talk and get your party on the books!

Finally FALL!!

Fall weather is frequently a long time coming here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia.  But when it does arrive, oh how spectacular!  We’re finally getting our first taste of cooler (below 90 degrees!) temps and it’s wonderfully refreshing.

One of the things I most enjoy about cooler weather is sipping on hot tea.  Guess it’s my British and Scottish heritage, but hot tea has been a favorite my entire adult life.  I even have an small collection of lovely china tea pots that just make me smile.  So, naturally, one of my favorite suites is the Tea Room Suite.

TEA ROOM SUITE CARDS

Recently I held a Tea Room Suite product based class, and the ladies really enjoyed creating with this beautiful Suite.

Tea Room square

This 4 x 4 card was made using Coastal Cabana Cardstock and Stampin’ Ink.  The flower was stamped in Calypso Coral.

 

Tea Room Card 3

I really wanted to feature the Tea Room Designer Series Paper in this card.  The Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack is the perfect accent!

Tea Room Card 2

The Tea Room Stamp sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana and the tea cup is stamped in Calypso Coral.

Tea Room Card 1

The Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder coordinates so perfectly with this Suite.

Tea Room Card 4

This was an alternate idea I made using the Colored Doilies.

This is one of the Bundles in the Annual Catalog, which means that you can save 10% on this set that’s already coordinated for you with the stamps and beautiful dies!  Item 148410

Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper

The coordinating Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper coordinates perfectly!   Item 146894

There are even adorable Copper Tea Tins that coordinate.  Image ©Stampin’ Up! 2018.   Item 147034

Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack Item 146893

Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack

The coordinated Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack made it quick and easy to coordinate even more gorgeous cards!  A bargain at only $10!

Coordinated Tea Room 8 1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock Pack  Item 146895

We used just a few of these new products is this month’s Christmas Card Club and everyone made some beautiful Christmas Cards.

DASHING ALONG DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS

AND DASHING DEER BUNDLE

Dashing Deer

Here’s one of the cards we made using the Detailed Deer Thinlits mounted on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock embossed with the Hardwood Plank Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Cherry Cobbler is a long time favorite color, a rich, vintage color.  So simple and so elegant!  The sentiment is from the new Timeless Tidings Stamp Set.

These cards, also, were made using this lovely Bundle.

All of these cards were created using the gorgeous NEW Dashing Along Designer Series Paper.  During September, if you host a qualifying party or place a qualifying order, it’s FREE!!  This offer only runs through September 30th.  Click here to read more!

Another new favorite from the new Holiday Catalog is the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set, which coordinates with the Pretty Little Label Punch.  That’s one of the absolute BEST things about Stampin’ Up! products–everything is coordinated for you!

Fluorish Filigree Christmas

The center and sentiment are stamped in Soft Suede, another of my favorite go-to products.  The sentiment was punched out with the Pretty Label Punch.  I also punched out a Real Red piece, then cut in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment.  After I attached a strip of the Very Vanilla Tea Room Ribbon, I adhered the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Easy elegance!  Another great thing about this Flourish Filigree stamp set is that there are also Thanksgiving sentiments with it, making it even more versatile.

And the coordinating Pretty Label Punch.

Birthday Memories Suite and February Events Schedule

One of my favorite Suites from the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog is the Birthday Memories Suite.  Bright and cheerful, colorful and very retro.  Loved it from the first time I got to play with it!  With the cold, gloomy winter weather we’ve had so much of lately, I’ve begun to be drawn to our more colorful Suites and decided I had to create a card with this adorable little girl.

Birthday Memories Card

birthday girl with logo

One of the BEST things about Stampin’ Up is how everything is coordinated for you.  The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is the background paper here.  The Birthday Girl, present and floral bouquet were all cut from the Designer Series Paper using the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies with the Big Shot.  The little girl  and the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon are both mounted on Pacific Point Cardstock, which is one of my very favorite Stampin’ Up colors.  The sentiment was stamped using the Birthday Delivery Stamps Set.  See how it’s all coordinated for you?!  Makes creating beautiful projects so much easier!

I must admit that I came across a picture a couple of days ago that inspired this card.  One of those “long ago” pictures!  Yep, that’s me.

Little Dixie

We had a Fun Folds Cards Class and made these cards using this same Suite.  See how bright and cheerful this set is?

bday fold card 3bday fold card 2

And here’s the GREAT thing–the stamps, dies and Designer Series Paper are all three available in a Bundle that saves you 10%.  Purchase this set through March 31st and you’ll get a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item of your choice!

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

What a winter we’ve had here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!  Arctic cold temps (colder than Alaska!), snow and ice.  But I’ve begun my SPRING Countdown on my Facebook Page, which I’ve done for several years and now have requests for every year.  A fun way to look forward to spring!

But first…Valentine’s Day!!

Painted with Love Suite Sampler and Card

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so elegant and gorgeous, I’ve loved working with it.  The whole “Love”ly Suite can be found in the NEW Occasions Catalog. I love samplers because they’re just something pretty to create and enjoy, as home decor or a gift.  It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and have decided to offer a Class in February.  But today I really wanted to work with this Painted with Love Designer Series Paper to create a Valentine’s Sampler.

One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you, which helped inspire me in the design of the Sampler.

Love sampler with logo

I used an 8 X 8 Melon Mambo base.  The Whisper White squares are 2 1/4″.  I used 9 different patterns from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper cut into 2″ squares.  The accents are a gold Metallic Foil Doily, as well as hearts cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies in gold foil, Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink.  The large gold foil hearts are the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.

I also created a coordinating card to go with it, using some of the same products on a different scale.  So easy when Stampin’ Up products are already coordinated for you!

January Class Cards

Despite the weather, we were able to have the Quick and Easy Cards Classes last week and had a fun time creating some cards and a 3D project.

 

 

bloomin love bday card with logoheart box and card with logo

 

We used the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to create a box decorated with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Calypso Coral Cardstock was placed behind the die cut image, then the die cut heart was used on one of the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes.  You can fit four of these cute little cards in the box!

The Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set was used on the other card, stamped in Soft Suede Ink.  Strips of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background for this beautiful stamp. The sentiment is from the You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalog.
