Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope all is well. For the next couple of weeks, I will be showcasing quick and easy handmade cards featuring the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set.  Our virtual workshop on Saturday (August 15) will be all about this stamp set and making quick and easy, or simple stamping cards. I highly recommend ordering your own stamp set, or bundle with dies, so that you are able to follow along. Today's card is a bold and sassy thank you card using a striped-pattern strip from the Flowers for Every Season 6"x6" DSP pack.

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Mango Melody cardstock. The mat layer is from the new 2020-22 In Color collection, Magenta Madness and is cut 4" x 5 1/2". 

The large sunflower is stamped on the upper half of the Whisper White cardstock, cut 3 3/4" x 5", in Mango Melody. To create the darker center, I removed the Mango Melody ink using a sponge dauber, and used a second sponge dauber to add Soft Suede ink to the center. Then I used the masking technique to lay down the leaves in second generation Shaded Spruce (still a little bright, but this is a bold and sassy card).

For the sentiment, I added a background strip of DSP, cut 3 3/4" x 1 1/2", and stamped in Magenta Madness on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White.

Do not forget:  When you place your orders this month in the new online store (same location, but redesigned for a pleasant customer experience), remember to apply the Host Code (see below for the current code) AND your Bonus Day coupon codes.  If you need more info, check out my biz news following today's project notes for all the details.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Winter Woods Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. During our virtual workshop on Saturday (the 18th), I shared our first holiday card for the year using the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set. Today I am sharing with you a quick and easy card using another carry-over set, Winter Woods. I borrowed the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set.

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Crumb Cake cardstock. The stamped layer of Night of Navy cardstock is cut 5 1/4" x 4" and stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink using the Buffalo Check Background Stamp. The trees are die cut using the Woods Dies and the solid trees are outlined using the Stampin' Chalk Marker. You may recognize the Snowflake Sequins - a Returning Fave from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

Do not forget:  Bonus Days are almost over (August 3) so finalize your July orders before the end of the day Friday. I will have a new host code created on Saturday for August order. If you need more info, check out my biz news following today's project notes for all the details.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Daisy Lane Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope you were able to find some time for crafting this past weekend. Bonus Days is in full swing and there is only 12 days remaining to earn additional rewards with purchase. Be sure to check out my biz news below (following today's project details) for all the information on Bonus Days.

The Simple Stamping Challenge for July is to create a Thank You card with only stamps, ink and paper. I love the Daisy Lane Stamp Set!
#simplestamping
#simplestamping

The Daisy Lane Stamp Set has small and large daisy flower images and coordinating punches, however I wanted to show you how easy it would be to create this card without the punches. I had to go outside this stamp set for the "Thank You" sentiment. (Editor's Note: UGH!! After posting this morning, I discovered that the "Thank You" sentiment and the triple mini daisies from the Daisy Delight Stamp Set were retired upon the release of the 2020-21 Annual Catalog, Daisy Delight. I must have missed this when I was organizing my stamp collection back in June. :(  My apologies!! I can suggest 3 alternates for your consideration: Thank You sentiment from the Ornate Garden Suite (Item# 154153, pp. 64-67), or the beautiful smaller Thank You sentiment and super cute flowers from the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set (Item# 152684, p. 51), or finally, the large Thank You sentiment from the Best Year Stamp Set (Item# 152568, p. 133.)

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Mango Melody cardstock. The stamped layer of Whisper White cardstock is cut 5" x 3 3/4". After stamping the medium-sized daisies once, I stamped the flower image a second time coloring the daisy centers using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.

Can you spot the techniques used on this card?

Give this super simple card a try! You could try it in any color, your choice.

After creating this card, I took the card up a level for my online workshop this past Saturday using both the daisy and the medium daisy punches in Daffodil Delight cardstock and sponging the flower petals with Mango Melody ink. You can find the video on my Facebook page, [CLICK HERE] but here's a clip from the video that shows off my card.

July Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the July Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month everyone's projects feature Designer Series Paper ("DSP") from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. I think you would agree with me that the choice is difficult as there are so many excellent choices. For my projects today, I thought I would use the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. The sheet I picked from the 12 double-sided sheets is quite subtle compared to the others in this collection. It features beautiful lighter shades of Cinnamon Cider for the rose, among Misty Moonlight flowers and background, and a sprinkle of Just Jade leaves - all new 2020-22 In Colors.

My project is a simple 3" x 3" gift box. It may hold 5 or 6 cards depending on the height of your embellishments. I make Thank You cards in this size that I tuck in with my hand-delivered customer orders. I am gifting this box of cards (so no picture of the cards inside!), but I have included a picture of a couple of full size cards.

How cool is that Denim ribbon? It coordinates perfectly with Misty Moonlight! The box base and card bases are Just Jade and the accent pieces are Shaded Spruce. These colors coordinate perfectly, too! Plus, for a splash of color, I picked Melon Mambo for the cutsie butterfly and flowers cut from the Well Written dies.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

*Sneak peek at last week's card, too.

These cards with the Flowers for Every Season Suite Collection (AC pp. 10-13) have been so much fun. Hard to see in this picture the shaker created using the new Mason Jar Dome Shaker Dome and the Flowers for Every Season Gems. It is super cute! Give this card a try and share it with all of us - maybe post it to my Facebook page so we all can see it.

I have given everyone the heads up that this month's online workshop (3rd Saturday of every month) will also feature the Jar of Flowers stamp set and the new 2020-22 In Colors (Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight). Misty Moonlight is still my favorite, but I am starting to really like the Cinnamon Cider! I am giving you this head's up so that you have time to order them for our class.

Easy Handmade Card Featuring Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. I wanted to share this fun card using the new Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and Jar Punch (Bundle). It was one of the two cards we made last month during the  Facebook Live Virtual Workshop.
Give this super simple card a try! You could try it in a color of your choice.

Since we have been meeting virtually for the last few months, I have tried to keep project designs fairly simple in order for you to change them up with stamp sets and punches that you likely have in your collections. Hopefully, you like the project so much that you will visit my online store to buy the stamp set/bundle for your own collection!

This month's online workshop (3rd Saturday of every month) I will again be using this same stamp set - Jar of Flowers - and the new 2020-22 In Colors (Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight). I love the new Misty Moonlight!! I am giving you this head's up so that you have time to order them for our class. The July Hostess Code is on the right-hand side of my blog, or if you are viewing this on your mobile device, scroll down to the business messages below for the code.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Jar of Flowers Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. The launch of a brand new Stampin' Up! catalog is always exciting. Hope you have been enjoying all the blogs, video blogs and Facebook posts showing off the new products - especially the new 2020-22 in colors. They are quite beautiful. Let me know what you think.
The Simple Stamping Challenge for June is to create a card using any stamp set from the new annual catalog and the new 2020-22 in colors. I thought it would be fun to try out the new Jar of Flowers Stamp Set with the challenge. What a beautiful stamp set!
#simplestamping

Can you spot three (3) techniques used on this card?

Card Basics:  The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Misty Moonlight cardstock. The stamped layer of Whisper White cardstock is cut 5" x 3 3/4". After stamping the flowers, I created a mask for the lower portion of the flowers before stamping the mason jar, both images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Use the reverse image of the mason jar for stamping the water image using a second generation stamp of the Misty Moonlight ink. The flowers were colored using Blender Pens and Classic Stampin' Ink Refills (Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, Old Olive).

To anchor the image and give the card some depth, I inked the striped line image in Misty Moonlight and stamped it across the bottom creating a ledge or shelf. The sentiments (card front and inside) are from the Well Said Stamp Set.

Give this super simple card a try! You could try it in any color, your choice.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! And check back next week for some stepped up versions of this card featured on my Facebook Live this past weekend.

Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Did you spot the techniques?  1) Masking, 2) Second Generation Stamping, and 3) Coloring using ink refills and Blender Pens.


Stamp On!!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the June Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Krissi Hannahs' blog (great project, Krissi!). Welcome one and all.

Happy Birthday is the June theme and we are featuring products from the 2020-21 Annual Catalog. There are so many excellent choices, but I am in LOVE with the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the coordinating Sunflowers Dies. 

I enjoyed coloring the large sunflower with the Stampin' Blends. Of course, if you were making a "short stack" of cards, maybe for a gift, you could skip this coloring step and stamp the sunflower on the new Bumblebee cardstock. The background is the Buffalo Check Background Stamp, inked in Night of Navy, and stamped on the new Misty Moonlight cardstock (5" x 3 3/4") and matted on the new Cinnamon Cider cardstock (5 1/4" x 4").

The inside is a simple sentiment "Birthday Wishes" from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set, accompanied by a die cue of the small sunflower stamp.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Painted Poppies Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Here's a fun card that I want to show you. I love the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, but you could change this up with any stamp set from your collection.  Take a minute to gather the supplies listed below and give this card a try.

Three (3) things I love about this card for our #staysafe #stayhome days:

1. Technique: Instead of coloring these poppies with your Stampin' Blends or Stampin' Write Markers, ink up the smudge stamp in this set, "stamp off" some of the ink for a second generation stamp and stamp over the poppy image. It is not perfect coverage, but isn't it cute! So pretty.
2. Background Stamping:  I love the field of poppies stamp. It makes an awesome background!!
3. Designer Series Paper (DSP): The strip of DSP (since retired, frowny face) is cut 2" x 5 1/2" and ties this card together. Pick a card base that color coordinates with your DSP and take your cardmaking up a notch.

June Online Workshop
I will be holding an online workshop on Saturday, April 20 - like as if we were having our regular workshop in person! The card will be based on the paper cuts set out below. If you need help finding me on Facebook, message me. 

July Workshop
Not sure if it will be online or in person, but I plan to use the Jar of Flowers bundle (a bundle from the Flowers for Every Season Suite) from the New 2020-21 Annual Catalog (pp. 10-13). The bundle pricing it is a little less painful on the wallet. Use the June Host Code to purchase your own stamp set/punch. If you order the bundle, I will send you card kit packets in the mail. Then if we do meet in person (really not sure that in person will happen), I will bring them to class. This will be so fun for us all.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not already have an online account, when you set up your account, PLEASE be sure to NOT click "no contact" as I will not be able to send you your free card kit packets.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!.
