Sharing Sweet Thoughts

Die Cut/ Paper crafting/ People/ Projects

Happy Friday stampers! I love the name of the stamp set for today's project; Sharing Sweet Thoughts. If you turn your 2017-2018 catalog to page 223, you'll find this cute set.

I think the images in this stamp set are adorable. Beyond that, it is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set for 2017-2018, so that makes it especially near and dear to me. Each time the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set is purchased, $3.00 is donated by Stampin' Up! to the RMCD Charities. To date, $1.5 million dollars has been donated. I am beyond proud to be associated with such a philanthropic-minded company!

I love the simplicity of this card. The small touches of black really set off the Pear Pizzazz.

Something else to note, there is another product, Everyday Jar Framelits,  that coordinates perfectly with this stamp set. In fact, the Everyday Jar Framelits has coordinated with quite a few stamp sets, making it “more stamp-ING for less cha-CHING! 🙂

I'll share the products and measurements used for this card below and a link to our Artisan Blog Hop. I hope after seeing my project and all the ideas at the blog hop, you might consider adding this stamp set, and maybe even the framelits to your collection. You'll get some fun new “toys” and your contribution from the sale of the stamp set will help some very deserving children and their families!

Lovely Words Thinlits Friend Mini Crate

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Projects/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips

Hey stampers! Today's project is a Lovely Words Thinlit Friend Mini Crate. I actually whipped this up when I got home from work today. Seriously, it took me less than 30 minutes, start to finish.

I love the Wood Crate Die for making little gifts for my friends, customers and downline. I am over the moon excited that Stampin' Up! will be putting  packages of 3″ x 3″ Whisper White envelopes into the upcoming holiday catalog going live on September 1. It is so easy to create a special notecard using our paper and embellishments. Adding a coordinating envelope is the perfect finishing touch for this Mini Wood Crate Die project.

Let me share how I put this project together.

First, I chose my paper for the little notecard. I picked the Daffodil Delight/Old Olive flower piece from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack for the top layer. I cut a 6″ x 3″piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock for my base, a 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Old Olive Cardstock for the next layer, finishing with the DSP on the top. I used a 3″ piece of Daffodil Delight Double-Stitched ribbon (I used the side with little lines; the other side has little x's…TWO choices with one roll of ribbon!) and incorporated the “friend” die from the Lovely Words Thinlits. I cut “friend” out of Dazzling Diamonds Paper and used a Stampin' Sponge to add a little pop of Old Olive ink on top. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the word, rather than leaving it in the frame. These little dies are so versatile! I'm working on a video to show you different ways they can be used.

For the finishing touches to my notecard I found a button in my voluminous collection (yes, I am a button hoarder!) to pop onto the front of the crate and I added a piece of coordinating DSP to the inside of the envelope.

To order any of the supplies used for this project, just click on a picture below.

ps: if you aren't currently using a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I would love to be yours and to send you the new Holiday Catalog. Just shoot me an email with your contact info and I'll get one out to you right away!

Peace On Earth Night of Navy and Dazzling Diamonds Card

Die Cut/ Holidays / Special Days

Hey guys! Today's project is a Peace on Earth Night of Navy and Dazzling Diamonds card. I am having so much fun playing with my Carols of Christmas Bundle each night when I get home from work.  I only have 138 days until Christmas to get everything done!

While I think navy and white are just beautiful for Christmas cards, you might prefer a different color combo. That's the fun of stamping your own handmade cards!

Supplies:

  • Carols of Christmas (wood mount 144801 or clear mount 144804)
  • Stamp Pads: Night of Navy (126970)
  • Paper: Thick Whisper White (140272), Night of Navy (126970), Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (135315)
  • Misc.: Card Front Builder Dies (144674), Night of Navy 5/8” Crinkled Seam Binding (144189), SNAIL Adhesive (104332), Mini Dimensionals (144108), Bone Folder (102300), Mini Glue Dots (103683), Big Shot (113439)

Measurements:

  • Thick Whisper White:                    5 ½” x 8 ½” for card base, 2 ¾” x 2 ½”, scrap for deer
  • Night of Navy:                                  3 ¼” x 3”
  • Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer:      2 ¾” x 3”, scraps to cut trees
  • Night of Navy Ribbon:                   14”

Instructions:

  1. Ink up the “Peace on Earth” stamp in Night of Navy ink and stamp it on 2 ¾” x 2 ½” piece of thick Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Ink up the deer stamp in Night of Navy and stamp it on the scrap of Thick Whisper White.
  3. Use the Card Front Builder Dies to cut out the deer.
  4. Lay the scraps of glimmer paper glimmer side down on the Big Shot platform. Cut out the set of 2 trees and the single tree. Tip: to save glimmer paper, you can cut one of the tree dies out from the 2 ¾” x 3” layering piece – the cut out tree in the center will be covered by the Peace on Earth piece.
  5. Adhere the navy paper to the card with SNAIL adhesive.
  6. Layer the 2 ¾” x 3” piece of glimmer on top of the navy. Tip: place the SNAIL adhesive on the front of the navy piece instead of the back of the glimmer paper – it adheres better to the regular paper.
  7. Place dimensionals on the back of the Peace on Earth piece and attach it to the glimmer paper.
  8. Place mini dimensionals on the back of the trees and the deer and adhere them to the card.
  9. Tie a bow with the navy ribbon and attach it to the card with a glue dot.
  10. Write a greeting inside and give this gorgeous holiday card to a special friend or make many of them and give them to all of your family and friends this Christmas season.

Thanks for popping in and I hope you've enjoyed today's Peace On Earth Night of Navy and Dazzling Diamonds card.  Tomorrow I'll be showing a masculine birthday card that uses a fun stenciling technique. There are just so many different way to use the stamp sets and die-cuts in this awesome new bundle.

Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Join My Team/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! Its seems like most of the cards I've been creating lately are for birthdays. Today's sample, Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card, is easy to put together and Stampin' Up!'s Large Letters make personalization a breeze! I love our Lemon Lime Twist In Color, especially with this Night of Navy Background.

Did you know that you can get these for free along with a ton of other stuff. How?

The CRAZY INSANE sign up special that runs only through July 31. Sign up for $99 and you get $125.00 worth of merchandise, at LEAST $100 worth of business supplies (if you want to try it out – includes eight brand new catalogs!), an Essentials Kit with five terrific tools valued at $52 and a sneak peek stamp set from the Holiday Catalog – worth $20. It costs you more NOT to get this deal than it does to get it! 🙂

If you do grab up this offer, you will be an official demonstrator on August 1 which means…………wait for it………….…………you get to preorder available products from the Holiday Catalog ON August 1 right along with all the other demos!

Yes, I have had a lot of people sign up – the deal is just too TIGGERIFFIC to pass up . In case you are wondering, NO, you do NOT have to start a business if you don’t want to.  Many people sign up  “just for the discount”  (did I mention that you get 20% off everything in the catalog as long as you are a demo?)  but decide later to actually run a business..  I was actually one of those “kit-nappers” but now I am a proud Stampin' Up! business owner and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
