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

Why I joined Stampin’ Up! And August Specials!

Why I joined Stampin’ Up!

30th logo

My papercrafting journey began 11 years ago when I first started (and fell in love with!) scrapbooking.  My Stampin’ Up!  journey began about 6 months later, when I first started using (and fell in love with!) Stampin’ Up! products.  I  joined Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator about 2 ½ years ago, and what a great choice it was!  So why did I finally take the plunge and decide to become a Demonstrator rather than a customer?  Several reasons!

  1. The Ultimate Bundle Starter Kit and the opportunity to get $125 in product of my choice for $99, shipping included. What a deal!  Plus, a free Paper Pumpkin Kit and a 20% discount on all product purchases.
  2. Everything is coordinated for me! One of my biggest challenges has always been coordinating all the design elements, whether it was cardmaking, scrapbooking or a 3D project.  Stampin’ Up! solves that for me because everything is coordinated for me!  The cardstock, the “pretty papers,” inks, markers, dies, embellishments, stamps—everything!  It amazed me how much more quickly I was able to design and complete my projects when I didn’t have to spin my wheels trying to coordinate all the products I was using. Plus I get a discount on all my purchases!
  3. I immediately joined a community of stampers, absolutely one of the very best things about joining Stampin’ Up! I had been in Stampin’ Up! Stamp Clubs, but when I joined as a Demonstrator, it took the connection to a whole different level.  I quickly started my own Cards Classes and now have my own Team Members. It has really made this a joyful journey to have the opportunity to be with others who want to regularly get together for some fun stamping time.  So many new friends!

So why should you join Stampin’ Up!?  Why not?!?  Let’s get you started on your Stampin’ Up! journey today!  You can join by going to www.craftingonthehill.stampinup.net and click the “Join” tab, or just contact me and we’ll set up a time to talk!

August Specials!

The Color Your Seasons Bundle is still available, through August 31st or while supplies last.  You can really create some beautiful projects with this coordinated stamps and dies set.  And get new Watercolor Pencil colors exclusively with this 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!

Share What You Love Suite

Share What You Love Suite

SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE BUNDLE

The NEWLY RELEASED Share What You Love Bundles are now available!  We first got the opportunity to use these products at our April Stampin’ Up Convention, and, oh my!  These products help create the most beautiful projects!

We made this card at OnStage using the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Share What You Love Stamps, the Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon, the Pearlized Doilies, and the Artisan Pearls on a returning color Mint Macaron Cardstock base.

Share 1 OnStage

For May’s Cards Class, I decided to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) using some brighter colors.  I used the same Share What You Love Suite Products, but the base is So Saffron stamped with VersaMark.  Love this brighter version of the same card!

Share 4 w logo

On both cards, there’s a piece of Vellum Cardstock the same size as the rectangular piece of the Share What You Love Paper.  I love Vellum because it adds a nice soft touch to any project!

We also made this card in Cards Class with the Share What You Love Suite.  You can see the pearlized flowers on this Designer Series Paper.  So elegant!

Share 5 w logo

The Share What You Love Stamp Set stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide was used to create the sentiment and I used Pear Pizzazz as the base.

Then I decided to “show some love” to the retiring Color Theory Designer Series Paper and paired it with the new Blueberry Bushel cardstock and ink.  Paired with the new Pineapple Crush Ink, it’s such a bright and cheerful combo!

Share 3 w logo

There are three Share What You Love Bundle choices, all of which include FREE products!  But these Bundles are ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH MAY 31ST!!  Choose from the Just Getting Started Bundle, the A Little More, Please Bundle, or the Gotta Have It All Bundle.  All three Bundles include additional Items included that will only be available as a Bundle through May 31st. So many beautiful projects waiting to be created by YOU!!

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!!
