Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat

August 5, 2019

I thought it was about time for a masculine card…
but then my sister-in-law would love this buck come November!

Did you notice the custom sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Dies? In the past, I have made some of my dies sand punches cut in different sizes by just lining up the cutting edge of the dies on an already cut piece of cardstock. But, this was the first time I did it with my Stitched Rectangles…oh my gosh…it was so easy because the stitches on the die fall right into the already cut stitches! So there you have it…those Stitched Rectangles have just grown even more versatile!!!

Some great images in the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat stamp set:

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle Sneak Peek

May 17, 2019

I am in love again…this time…with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Suite!
A Bridge Fold Card is a perfect way to showcase the pieces in the stamp set and the dies:)
I used the NEW  In Color Seaside Spray with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper-
it matched wonderfully with the sailboat pattern piece I used.

In the card below, I used Balmy Blue which is listed on the color palette of the DSP.
You can see how it is a brighter blue than Seaside Spray which has a hint of gray with it.

You can get a sample of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper if you get my
2019-20 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog Paper Shares !

See post HERE.

Here is the back of the Bridge Fold card where you write your message:

The measurements for this  Bridge Fold are:

Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 8″ scored on the 8″ side at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, 5-1/2″, and 6-3/4″
DSP: 1″ x 4″ on each side
Middle and back panels: 2-3/4″ x 4″
Bridge: Navy 1″ x 5-1/2″, White 3/4″ x 5-1/4″

Here is another Bridge Fold card I did with a Video.

Stampin’ Up Geared Up Garage

May 6, 2019

My Stampin’ Up Pal and Roomie, Janet Munden, gave me a super cool card! I just had to share it but then kind of destroyed a part of it in transit so I had to repair it ever so very slightly…I just put a black border around the car and the sentiment. Oh, and I had a gear die in my stamp case so I added it to the card:) A great card to get ready for Father’s Day!

I love her layout and the embossing she did with the gear dies using the Big Shot Embossing Mats. And the little Classic Garage Metal Elements are a perfect touch!

Here is Chad from the Home Office explaining how to emboss with our dies:

Janet always finishes her cards on the inside so nicely, too!

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home SNEAK PEEK

May 2, 2019

I have a sneak peek for you today!

This is the NEW Sailing Home Bundle coming out on June 4, 2109. I can never have enough nautical stamp sets. I have some from previous years but without handy dies to cut out the images. I love the textured rope die and the ship’s steering wheel. And, of course, there is a lighthouse in the set, another sailboat, and some great sentiments including Happy Birthday!
The NEW come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is so great, too!

And, oh my gosh, how did I ever live without those Rectangle Stitched Dies?!?

Thanks for buzzing by, friends!
