Stampin’ Up Bunch of Blossoms

May 1, 2019

I have had this for a long time and just inked it up…it is an AWESOME bundle to use!
The Stampin’ Up Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set with the Blossom Builder Punch
makes gorgeous dimensional flowers!

The little splatters were an image in the Magical Mermaid Stamp Set. The white panel is 2-3/4″ x 4″ and the Pear Pizzazz border is  3″ x 4-1/4″.

I made a video to show you a few tips:

It is actually a three-step stamp set meaning that you can create a blossom with depth of two colors and then add an outline around it. I just did the two colors on each petal. I only stamped the stem and leaves one time.

Here is a peek at the stamp set:

It has great sentiments, don’t you think?
Well, this pretty baby is retiring so if you want it…get it soon!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…


I will be doing my Annual Catalog Paper and Accessories Shares this year-
keep tuned in for further information this month of May!

Stampin’ Up Floral Statements with Delicate Lace Edgelits

April 29, 2019

and a Happy Monday to you, friends!

Imagine how quick and easy this card was…after I got the measurements just right, that is!

So, here they are:
Daffodil Card Base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side
Basic Black: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
Whisper White: 2-3/4″ x 5-1/2″

All you have to do is use the Delicate Lace Edgelits to die cut each side of the Basic Black on the 5-1/2″ side. Keep the edge of the die just a tad, maybe 1/8″ or so off the edge of the paper. I experimented and on one card I had a little bit more cut off but the Whisper White still fit in. You want to see that cute little stitching on the inside edge. Oh, and make sure you keep them symmetrical when you die cut them- it does look nicer that way:) Then, you just stamp your floral HELLO and color it pretty! I did use my Stamparatus to get a crisp dark black image, and I let it dry completely before coloring since I stamped it a couple times. I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. Now, that we have Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers that do not streak, I am no longer afraid to color! I added a  bee from the Very Vintage Annual Catalog Hostess Set.

 

Commerical Break:

The Floral Statements Stamp Set has another gorgeous image in it that says THANKS with roses surrounding it.

Stampin’ Up Delicate Lace Edgelits with Flourishing Phrases

April 26, 2019

Hello, friends! I have another neat card for you using the Delicate Lace Edgelits
with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Lace is just so timeless…I think this pattern is just plain enough to suit most tastes without being to “fru-fru,” don’t you think?

NOTE: I cut my Very Vanilla panel on the front pf the card  to 3-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and then cut right next to the edge with the die. That way, I had a nice amount of Pear Pizzazz peeking through since it is cut to 4″ x 5-1/4.” I also ran the Very Vanilla panel through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder AFTER I die cut it. It gives it such a polished look.

I carried the lace edgelit and ribbon over to the inside. I was pleased how it looked:)

NOTE: I cut the inside Very Vanilla panel to 4″ x 5-1/4″ so I had more room to write a message.

Stampin’ Up Sneak Peek Free as a Bird

April 22, 2019

It’s been a whirlwind of a month…classes, OnStage, family events…fun, fun, fun.
You have probably been seeing some of the cards made with the NEW Free as a Bird stamp set
coming out in the Annual Catalog on June 4, 2019.
We got this make-n-take at Onstage.

It was a pretty design layout but I brought mine home and made it my own:)

My faithful Stampin’ Up Rectangle Stitched Thinlits made an appearance again- love them.

The Stampin’ Up Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper is ABSOLUTELY stunning!
Stampin’ Up concept artists used our actual Stampin’ Blends to color the images before they were made into DSP.

I will be doing my Annual DSP Paper Shares

and Accessories Shares

with the new catalog so keep tuned in for more information!!
