Sale-A-Brate with Country Floral

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!

Country Floral EF painted seasons dsp

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.

Humming Along and Home to Roost

Humming Along and Home to Roost

Even in the Deep South, it can get downright cold in January.  Since I love Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends and Watercolor Pencils, what better way to while away the long winter days than color!  The Humming Along Cling Stamp Set and the Sale-A-Bration Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set were the perfect stamps for my projects.

HUMMING ALONG CLING STAMP SET

This was one of the stamp sets that was demonstrated at OnStage Orlando in November, and I loved it at first sight.  There’s a beautiful flower, a hummingbird (we love hummers!) and sentiments to complete the project.

hummingbird blue w logo

I stamped the hummingbird in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored it with Balmy Blue and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I used a strip of the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and the sentiment is from the Humming Along Cling Stamp Set, stamped in Memento.

hummingbird 2 w logo

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Cardstock for this one, since it adds just a touch of shimmer.  The hummingbird is stamped in StazOn Ink, then colored with Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.  The Red Rhinestones were the extra touch of bling I wanted.  The Stitched Labels Framelits Die gave a touch of texture to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock base.

 

hummingbird w garden trellis w logo

Shimmery White Cardstock, stamped with StazOn Ink then colored with our Watercolor Pencils.  I also used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and the Everyday Label Punch for the sentiment from the Humming Along Stamp Set.

But there’s also a gorgeous flower with this stamp set!  This is one of Stampin’ Up’s new Cling Stamp Sets, found in the Occasions Catalog.  Three great sentiments, too.

 

For these two flower images, I used Memento Ink, then the Watercolor Pencils, and the Blender Pen.   The blue flower is Pacific Point and the pink flower is Flirty Flamingo.  I used the light Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blend to add contrast around the flowers and make them pop.

Humming along blue flower

The Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper is the perfect background!

I stamped the flower in Versamark on the Pear Pizzaz Cardstock.

Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set

One of my favorite Sale-A-Bration Items is the Home to Roost Cling Stamp Set.  This stamp set is one of the FREE Items you can choose with any $50 Product Order.  Look at the great sentiments!

I used Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper for these,  stamped the images in StazOn Ink, then used the Watercolor Pencils and the AquaPainter to color them.

rooster 4 w logo

rooster 1 w logo

rooster 6 w logo

For these I used Whisper White or Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock, stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, the colored with Stampin’ Blends.    I used the Stitched Labels Framelits, and the Pinewood Planks and Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.

rooster 2 w logorooster 3 w logo

rooster 5 w logo

One of the items in the new Occasions Catalog that I used is the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  One of my VERY favorites that is already getting a lot of use!

Lots and lots of Framelits in this incredibly versatile set!

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

Garden Impressions One Sheet Wonder Cards

What a wonderful summer it’s been for the Stewart house!  Lots of times with grands and kids equals pure bliss!  One of the things I love about spring and summer (and even fall) is all the flowers that are blooming.  The Abstract Impressions Suite has coordinating floral stamps and floral dies, and the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper coordinated beautifully to help create some beautiful projects.

Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I decided I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder Class using the 6 X 6 Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.  I was inspired by the template and card designs of Rebecca Urban, another talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.  Here are the cards we made in this fun class.

one sheet wonder Garden Impressions

This paper was just perfect for this Class to show how you can stretch our Stampin’ Up Designer Series Papers and get more bang for your buck!  I used Soft Sea Foam and Calypso Coral Cardstock and Stampin’ Inks.  The sentiments are from the Ribbon of Courage and the Beautiful Day Stamp Sets.  So quick and easy!!  Next I want to try a 12 X 12 One Sheet Wonder Class, and I’m sure the new Christmas Designer Series Papers will inspire me.

The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is just one the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Select Designer Series Paper Sale.  This sale ENDS July 31st, so now’s the time to place your order!  Go to my online store at http://www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net to see all the “pretty papers” that are on sale, or see my July 3rd post for pictures of them.  Either way, NOW is the time to shop!

“You Can Make It” Beautiful Day Bundle

One of the fantastic new things added in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog is the “You Can Make It” Project Ideas that you can purchase a Bundle.  What a fabulous idea!  One Item number to purchase everything you need to make the project.  I decided I really wanted to play with the Beautiful Day Stamps Set and make a set of the cards.

Beautiful Day Craft Project

I stamped the images with the Memento Ink Pad, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends.  I didn’t want to stop!

I started with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combo, then decided to also use the Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Combos, also. Bright and colorful and a very quick project.

beautiful day butterflies

The flower stamped called out to me, too, so I colored those in Calypso Coral and Lovely Lipstick.   I used Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight Dark for the flower centers.  Aren’t they just lovely?  And remarkably quick to create such beautiful projects!

beautiful day flowers

Here’s what’s included in the Beautiful Day Cards Supplies Set, Item 149042.  Note cards and envelopes, Beautiful Day Stamp Set, Stampin’ Block, Ink, Stampin’ Blends and twine.  Fun!

The Delightful Daisy Designer Series Papers has gorgeous designs that have lots of spring colors that coordinate with it.  This card has the Designer Series Paper mounted on Wisteria Wonder.  The sentiment and flower are from the Daisy Delight stamp set stamped in Flirty Flamingo.watercolor daisy w logo

The daisy stamp from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped twice in Berry Burst, then punched with Daisy Punch. A Clear Faceted Gem is the perfect touch for the center.  I used Berry Burst Ink to watercolor on a piece of the Watercolor Paper, then mounted it on Berry Burst Cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

This is one of the cards we made in the Spring Into Stamping Class this week.  The Daisy Delight Designer Series Paper made this card so quick and easy!  A strip of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon set the card off perfectly!

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

Fun with the Petal Passion Suite

At the February Quick and Easy Cards Class, we used the Petal Passion Suite to create 6 beautiful cards.

Petal Passion Suite Designer Series Paper

 

The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper is gorgeous, but it becomes even more versatile when you color it!

petal palette DSP coloring w logo

At the Cards Class, we used the technique on the left, a Sponge Brayer and Stampin’ Ink.  This piece of the Petal Passion Paper was inked with the Pool Party Stampin’ Ink Pad.  The Sponge Brayer makes so easy!  I put alcohol and a Stampin’ Up Ink Refill in the Stampin’ Up Stampin’ Spritzer, then sprayed the middle piece.  On the third piece, I used the Stampin’ Up Sponge Dauber and picked up the color from the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Up Ink Pad to daub it on the Petal Passion paper.  Amazingly simple to create so many different looks!

Petal palette blends w logo

Look at the stellar results from using the Stampin’ Blends to color it!  I truly love this Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  And the Blends make even me look like an artist!

Here is a list of the Stampin’ Up Products used in these projects:

Sponge Brayer    Item 141714    $8

Sponge Dauber   Item 133773   $5

Stampin’ Spritzer  Item 126185  $3

Stampin’ Blends  $4.50 each or $9 Combo Pack

Stampin’ Ink Pads  $6.50 each

We made 3 cards in Class using the Petal Passion Suite.

On this one we used the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Love the Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock paired with the Sweet Sugarplum Stampin’ Ink.  The Petals & More Thinlits Dies were used to cut out the “flyaway” leaves and the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.

petal palette pink card w logo

We also made 2 other cards using this fabulous Suite.

petal palette class cards

I just love, love this little bird, which is stamped here in Marina Mist, but it’s also adorable stamped in pink or yellow or black, and can easily be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  The flowers are from the Petal Palette Stamps, stamped in Berry Burst.  So versatile!!

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade

Southern Serenade Parade of Colors!

The Southern Serenade Stamps Set from the Occasions 2018 Catalog just sings to me!  Such a beautiful set and paired with the Stampin’ Blends it produces gorgeous projects.

serenade 3 w logo

 

This is colored with the Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Combos.  I adhered it to half of a Doily and the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack, mounted on a sheet of Daffodil Delight Cardstock.  I added a piece of the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon for just the right accent.  The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade Stamp Set, then cut out with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

serenade 4 w logo

The Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combo Set just makes the flowers pop!  I used Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock and paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  The sentiment is from the Petal Palette Stamps Set.  I used the Fresh Fig 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon for a contrast.

welcome card with logo

I entered this card in an online challenge, and I won!!  Woohoo!  Pool Party is one of my favorite colors, so that’s what I used here, as well as the Color Theory Designer Series Paper.  I used the Banners For You Stamps and the coordinating Bunches of Banners Die Set for the sentiment.

serenade pink w logo

I thought the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack provided a great contrast with the Pink Pirouette.  I used the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add a little more texture.  Linen Thread is one of my favorite accents–so versatile!

 

Lovely lace and great sentiments really make this Southern Serenade Stamp Set a “not to missed” item to order!

Stampin’ Blends are incredible.  They easily make me look like an artist!  They’re available as a complete set, or you may purchase them singly or as a combo pack.  Such a great variety of colors! You really need to see, feel, touch them to see what beautiful projects they produce.

 

There’s an upcoming Class where you can do just that!

The Lots of Happy Card Kit from the new Stampin’ Up Occasions Catalog makes me “HAPPY!”  It’s an all inclusive Kit with everything you need to complete to make 20 cards, including stamps, ink, a stamp block, adhesives, embellishments, envelopes and FOUR watercolor pencils.  Watercoloring these cards was actually quickly done using Blender Pens.

Here’s a “group shot” of these gorgeous cards.  Truly beautiful!

As you can see, I used the stamp set that was included to decorate the envelopes, also.

The close up shots of each card:

Stampin’ Up also offers a complete set of Watercolor Pencils with even more colors, so I pulled out a couple of those for some alternate ideas.

I wanted a truer blue for the lavender, so I used the Pacific Point Watercolor Pencil.

I used the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil and Wink of Stella on this card. See the shine on the flowers?  Just that little extra touch with Wink of Stella!

So much fun to complete this Kit!

Look at everything that’s included!

One of my favorite things about using Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you!  And this Lots of Lavender Stamp Set perfectly coordinates with the Lots of Happy Card Kit.
