Many Ways To Emboss – Two of my Favorites Today!

Online Stamp Club/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Videos

I just love to emboss! It always adds such a beautiful dimension to my handmade cards. Did you know there are tons of different ways to emboss? Watch this short video below that shows Brandi, from the Stampin' Up! Home Office, demonstrating a faux metal embossing technique.

Doesn't that look like fun? Ready to see another embossing technique?

Here's a video of me demonstrating another embossing technique, embossed foil. This was a card I did with my stamp clubs and it was a big hit.

If you're ready to give embossing a try but need a little more instruction or tips, please reach out!

NEW STAMPIN’ BLENDS – AVAILABLE NOW!!!

Stampin' Blends/ Videos

Happy Friday Stampers! I hope you've had a chance to try our Stampin' Blends. We've been waiting for all the NEW colors to arrive in the warehouse and they're here!

I totally LOVE, LOVE mine. I know you'll enjoy them, too.

The high-quality, dual-tipped markers offer you an artist-quality blending experience. They come in Stampin' Up!'s exclusive colors which gives you a brand new world full of color creativity!

Have fun experimenting with blending using light and dark shades of the same color or try blending colors with similar hues for a different look. You'll want to be sure to use a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad to stamp your image to prevent bleeding.

If you have any blending questions or need anything, please just ask.  I'm happy to help! 🙂

Inside Look at Stampin’ Up! DSP Creation

Customer Q & A/ Stamping/ Videos

Hey Stampers! If you've been around Stampin' Up! for any time at all, you know we have some of the most beautiful patterned paper; otherwise known as Designer Series Paper. I truly think the paper in our 2018-2019 catalog is the best we've ever produced. One of my favorites is Petal Promenade.  Did you ever wonder how the designers come up with their paper ideas? Today I wanted to give you an inside look at Stampin' Up! DSP Creation; it is really an interesting process!

The photographs in our Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper are more than just a “look”—real flowers were used! Talented Product Designer and Specialist, Kaitlyn Zumbach, used floral arrangements with technology to design this paper. You’ll be blown away be the entire process!

Pretty cool, huh?!

Here's a project idea with one of the sheets in the pack. Each sheet is double-sided and you get 2 of each one!

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Online Classes/ Videos

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!  This is going to be a bit of a nostalgic week for me! Our oldest grandcherub graduates from high school this Saturday! Where has the time gone?  Anyone else taking trips down memory lane with graduates?

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

This kid and I used to put on our yellow raincoats to go outside and splash in puddles. Now he'll be putting on a cap and gown to march across the stage to collect his diploma! His “Poppa” and I are proud of the young man he has become and are looking forward to the path God has for him.

Of course I had to make his graduation card! I made a few extra, too since I have a lot of friends whose kiddos are also making the “graduation march”!

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

The backgrounds for all these cards were done with Brusho Color Crystals. This is such a fun and easy product to use. I taught an online class in which I stepped through several projects and gave lots of tips and techniques. If you missed the live class,  you can still purchase the recording.

My next online class, coming up on June 20th, will feature 2 “fancy fold” cards; you'll also learn to make gift bags that require no measuring or cutting!

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!
