Winter Woods Fall Thank You Card

Hey Stampers! Thanks for popping in today. I have a Fall Thank You card using the Winter Woods stamp set found in our Holiday Catalog. My Tuesday post showed you a Halloween card using this same stamp set. If you missed that post, see it here.

Winter Woods Fall Thank You Card

This card looks totally different than my Halloween project. Versatility is one of the things I like best about Stampin' Up! products. Of course, I would love to own every single stamp set we sell, but that's just not possible. If you have limited funds as well, I hope you find my ideas helpful to get the most out of your stamp sets and other supplies!

Here are all the details for today's project:

  • Ink the Tree Stand with Mango Melody ink; then remove the ink from the tree trunks with a tissue and color the trunks with the Early Espresso marker.
  • With Sponge Daubers, randomly Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss to the tree stand to create “Fall” leaves.
  • “Breathe” on the stamp as needed to add moisture and then stamp on the Whisper White Panel.

Take Your Pick Tool by Stampin’ Up!

Announcements/ Product Information

Hello Stampers! I hope you all had a relaxing “Labor Day”; kind of seems like it should be “Un-Labor Day” instead! 🙂 I got to spend most of the weekend stamping and planning projects for my upcoming events. Of course, that meant I was playing with all sorts of new products, like our new Take Your Pick Tool!

Take Your Pick Tool by Stampin' Up!

Every so often, Stampin' Up! comes up with a tool that is a game changer. We demonstrators have been asking for this sort of tool for awhile and now we've got it!

The last “game changer” type (in my humble opinion) was the stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus. It made two, three, and four step stamping SO easy for my customers. If you're not familiar with that tool, I'll have a video farther down in this post where you can check it out. But, back to the Take Your Pick Tool.

This little gem is designed to make working with small embellishments so much easier. The “putty” end is perfect for picking up sequins and placing them perfectly on your projects. The flat, spatula is designed to easily slip under adhesive backed elements such as rhinestones, pearls and enamel dots. There is also a paper piercing tool AND two sizes of stylus tips. Seriously, this is A-MAAAA-ZING! I grabbed a video done by one of our product specialists in the home office. Check it out:

You can order this tool starting tomorrow at my online store.

And…here's a quick video about the Stamparatus!

Remember, our Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow and you can see it online at my store. IF you need your own copy so you can look at all the fabulous new products no matter WHERE you are, just email me! Iif you aren't currently working with another awesome demonstrator, of course!)

Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Product Information

Hey Stampers! Busy weekend for us, getting ready for our vacation to Spain. We were blessed to earn the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to the Mediterranean last year and we spent a few extra days in Barcelona. We decided right there and then, we would be going back this year. Spain is home to many fabulous vineyards so today's card “Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?” seems totally appropriate, don't you agree?

Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

I am definitely a “purple queen” so Rich Razzleberry fit the bill for this card! Notice the shading on the wine bottles and inside the glasses. Our new Stampin' Blends markers make this so very easy. My preferred coloring style is to lay down the lighter color first, and then highlight with the darker shade. Each marker has both a light and dark shade. You can also mix and match colors for another effect.

Here's a short video that explains some of the features and benefits.

The next video shows you some of the basics of blending with the new markers.

 

I also have short Facebook LIVE video about a special gift I have for everyone who orders the full set of available Blends from me! I've already given several out and the ladies LOVE it! You can also order the new Stampin' Blends as part of a starter kit and get all of them for only $99 plus tax and shipping is FREE! Check out my Girls, INK team. Any questions about this, please give me a shout.

In case you have some “winey” friends (haha), here are the instructions so you can send out to your buddies! All supplies may be ordered anytime at my online store.

Supplies:

  • Stamp Sets: Half Full (144996)
  • Card Stock: Whisper White (100730); Rich Razzleberry (115316)

Watercolor Resist Project Tutorial – Cheers to the Year

Product Information/ Stamping

Hey stampers! I had the best weekend! Friday night I joined a dear customer who gathered friends together for a stamping “playdate”.  I was invited to teach some fun techniques to stamping newbies in addition to some of her regular gang.  It was so much fun! We used the Painted Harvest stamp set, still one of my faves from the Holiday Catalog. Next, I scored tickets to a Dallas Stars game in a suite! Let me tell you,  that is the way to see a hockey game! Sunday, fun times with the grandcherubs and granddogs.  Last, but not least, my Dallas Cowboys won! Couldn't have asked for anything more! 🙂  That brings you up to date on my weekend and now on to my project share for you today: Watercolor Resist Project Tutorial – Cheers to the Year.
