My project today is one that we made last week in our stamp a stack class. I wanted to focus on some of the bundles that were carrying over into the new book. The good news that this bundle is carrying over but the sad news is it won't be available as a bundle anymore!

I would suggest grabbing your catalogues and check through them to make sure you have all the bundles you want as today is the last day you can save 10% for those that are carrying over and sadly there are some that are leaving us as of today! 

Want to recreate my card, you will need the following supplies:

  • Thick whisper white card stock, this is my go to white when creating a white base
  • Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies
  • Big Shot machine
  • Stitched Shape Framelits Dies 
  • Black card stock
  • 2016-2018 Incolour Designer Series Paper Pack - Sugarplum
  • Sugarplum ink 
  • Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush  - a staple in your desk as it adds the little bit of glitter to your projects

I know it's sad day with retiring product leaving us but the good news is only one more sleep till we can order from the new AMAZING 2017 Annual Catalogue. Just a reminder that we won't be able to place any orders till 12pm MT (which is 2pm our time) as Stampin' Up! need time to change over all the items in the ordering system!! Once we are able to order, I will post a link to the PDF and the Online store for you to view!!

Fancy Fold - Marble Technique Birthday Card

Happy Monday!

Hello friends, I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was a busy one with being a taxi driver for my girls and on Sunday I had our monthly meeting with my team!! It was AMAZING and I can't wait to share some picture and details with you this week!!!

My project today is one that we created last month at technique class. Our focus for the night was the utterly cool Marble Technique. Honestly, when I was showing them this technique, I felt like I was 10 again playing a game of marbles with my friends. Do you remember doing that? I remember spending hours looking at all the different style and patterns on each and every marble!!

IMG_6620 

My card today is a fun Fancy Fold, not sure what you call this one, but I'm going to call it a Pop up card!! As the magic happens when you open this card!!!

IMG_6636

When you open this card, the hammer magically appears in the bottom right corner! This is one of those card that you just stand there opening and closing the card, just to watch the hammer appear! 

IMG_6621

Tips and Tricks for my card:

  • Basic Grey reinker, marbles and a wood clear mount case is all you need to do this technique. Add a few drops of reinker in your wood clear mount case. Add your marbles and shake up to spread the ink around. Add a piece of paper to the wood case and close the lid. Once again, shake the case moving the marbles around to create an unique pattern on your white paper! The trick with this technique is only a few small drops of ink, as you want it to be even spread out.
  • Sadly the Nail It Bundle, and the Urban Underground Designer Specialty Paper is sold out. But not to worry, you can easily switch up the pattern paper for another one along with the images. There are lots of great guys stamp set out there like Guy Greeting, and One Wild Ride!!
  • The Birthday greeting is from the Birthday Bright stamp set

You can check out the Retiring List by heading over to my online store. You can click here to check out the product that will be leaving us on May 31. Remember stamp set are guarantee till May 22 and accessories are while supplies last!!

Tips and Tricks on this cute holder:

  • Stamping was done in Delightful Dijon ink 
  • Ribbon is Delightful Dijon and the neat trick about this ribbon is that it looks Gold when used on projects

Beautiful You Card!!

Hello,

Hope you are having a great weekend. It looks like it going to be a sunny one around here and it's a great time to get some outside items checked off my to do list! Wish me luck!!

My project today is one that I made with my good friend Rebecca. Rebecca invited me over for an afternoon of stamping and she had this card ready for me to create, all I had to do was stamp, colour and put together. Now that is my kind of card!! Actually it was nice to be on the other side of creating for a change!

Exciting news...the Beautiful You stamp set will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalogue. So you have lots of time to create beautiful projects with this gorgeous stamp set. This set is perfect for so many occasions! 

Want to recreate my project, I have some tips and tricks for you:

  • Colour Combination is Pool Party, and Very Vanilla 
  • Pattern Paper is from the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper Pack, and unfortunately the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper is already sold out. 
  • Make a beautiful layer using the Big Shot machine, the Layering Ovals Collection Framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits
  • Ribbon is the 3/8 Stitched Pool Party Ribbon and unfortunately it's sold out too. But you could easily switch it out for Very Vanilla ribbon
  • Stamp the lady image onto Shimmery White card stock with Black Archival Ink 
  • Colour the lady using the Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen. I love using my blender pen as I feel I have more control over shading and colouring!
  • Stamp greeting with Black Memento ink

So are you ready to recreate this project? Did you know that you can use the layout to recreate another card for a different occasion. That is one of my favourite things to do is to look for card sketches on line and then use that layout to create my own card! I'm in the process of creating a sketch book and I will share with you when I have a few pages done!

I have listed the supplies for you below and you can order directly from my ONLINE store

Marble Technique - Nail it Bundle

Hello,

My project today is a oldie but fun technique. My friend Angie McKay from North Shore Stamper reminder me of this fun technique and I couldn't wait to give it a try!! I knew it would be the perfect technique for this month's technique class!!

I had the Nail It Bundle sitting on my desk and wanted to use it for my project!! I bought this set as it reminds me so much of Corrie...he sure did love his tools and often told me that you need a variety of tools to complete the job!!! This card is for my lovely husband and I'm sure he is up there in heaven fixing things for others! 

IMG_6606

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tips and Tricks on my project:

  • The Nail It Bundle is perfect stamp set and matching framelits for the men in your lives!
  • The Hexagon Dymanic Impression Folder adds the perfect touch and dimension to your project
  • Basic Grey reinker, marbles and a wood clear mount case is all you need to do this technique. Add a few drops of reinker in your wood clear mount case. Add your marbles and shake up to spread the ink around. Add a piece of paper to the wood case and close the lid. Once again, shake the case moving the marbles around to create an unique pattern on your white paper! The trick with this technique is only a few small drops of ink, as you want it to be even spread out.
  • Stamp the screw driver and cut out with matching framelit, and then colour with Delightful Dijon and Smoky Slate marker 
  • My pattern paper is the Urban Underground Specialty Paper - sad news, it's already sold out

The sad news is the Nail It Bundle is on the retiring list and will be leaving us at the end of May. And the sad part is that its already SOLD out which doesn't surprise me as it was a great bundle!!! I have to tell you that this is one bundle that I will be keeping as it reminds me too much of Corrie!!
