Delightful Daisy Card

Daisy DelightToday I am sharing a Delightful Daisy card made with the new Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper in the upcoming June Catalog.  I absolutely love this paper!!  It has so many beautiful patterns in it and coordinates so well with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Here are the details of this card!  The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Next is a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ layer of Old Olive cardstock and two coordinating pieces of the Delightful Daisy Designer paper each cut to 3 3/4″ x 2″. These overlap and are adhered to the Old Olive card stock layer.  Then a 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of night of navy cardstock to cover the seam between the two pieces of paper.  This is covered with a piece of the new Daffodil Delight double stitched ribbon.

The daisy is stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and punched out with the corresponding daisy punch. The center is stamped with old olive ink and punched out with the 3/4″ circle punch.  A little Wink of Stella is added to the center to give it a little dazzle!  Do you like this card?  This is one of the cards that was designed and rejected for our Daisy Class!

 This paper, Delightful Daisy Designer paper and Daisy Delight stamp set are being featured at my June 17th Creative Crafter’s Escape! My Creative Stamping New England Design team members are busy designing cards to be part of a Daisy Class that will be offered that day!  You don’t want to miss out!  You can check out information HERE on our Summerfest Getaway!

Sneak Peak – Stampin’ Up! In Colors

Friday I had a little fun in Marilyn’s Creative Playground with the new Stampin’ Up! In-colors!  A few of my team members came over and we played with some of the new stamp sets and papers on Friday!

  Here I am sharing a sneak peak of the new Stampin’ Up! In-colors that will be available with the new Stampin’ Up! catalog in June!  I am so excited!  I love these new colors and they look so nice with the existing in-colors!

So the new In-colors are from left to right:

Berry Burst, Lemon Lime twist, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig and layering down is a card made with Powder Pink.

I highlighted these colors using the new Designer Series paper made with these in-colors.  This designer paper was made using each of the 5 colors.  The new In-color Designer paper stack has 4 design patterns for each color.  If this pattern looks familiar it is because it was in this year’s catalog in a Night of Navy color which I affectionately called the Delft Paper since it had the look of Delft pottery!

The messages on the cards are stamped with the corresponding color and the Layering Love stamp set.  The messages are cutout with the Layering Square, ovals and circles framelits.  If you are an avid paper crafter like me, you need these framelits in your tool kit!  They are perfect for cutting squares, circles and ovals out of cardstock or for pictures in your scrapbooks!

 What I like best about these colors is they are very bold and vibrant but pair nicely with the other in-colors!  Of course that is one of the advantages of using Stampin’ Up! products.  All the colors coordinate!

Happy Stamping!

Sneak Peak Avant Garden Z Fold Card

avant-garden-wToday I am posting a Sneak Peak of a Z Fold Card that I made with the new Sale-a-bration stamp set Avant Garden for a swap.  Swaps are part of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator’s life when a new catalog is coming out.  Since we can’t buy everything (even though we want to), as a Demonstrator we can purchase sets a month early to make samples and prep for classes.  And we do want samples of stamp sets that we don’t own to show our customers and to use for our displays.  So we all participate in swaps.  Each Demonstrator designs 1 project and then makes multiple copies of the project to trade with other demonstrators.  I just received some cool cards yesterday from a swap with the new sets that are coming out on Wednesday January 4th with the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration!

So this is one of the cards that I designed using the Avant Garden stamp set which is the new floral set in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration catalog.  I also made this card in two different color schemes.  The first color scheme is Island Indigo with Mint Macaroon and the second is Rich Razzleberry with Sweet Sugarplum.  The Designer series paper is Blooms & Bliss from the catalog.

Z Fold Card Directions:
Card base: 
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 2 1/8″ &
4 1/4″ and fold the casugarplum-avant-garden-wrd in a Z format!
Front Background layer:
a 1 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper.

The Inside of the card is a coordinating color (mint macaroon or Sweet sugarplum) cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ with a piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.

The main element on the front of the card is the flower from the Avant Garden Stamp set stamped with Island Indigo Ink or Sweet Sugarplum & Rich Razzleberry stamped on a 2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The background behind the flower is stamped lightly with Mint Macaroon or Blushing Bride ink stamped off – so the image is very light.  The flower is layered onto a piece of darker cardstock cut to 2 1/8″ x 3 5/8″.  This is layered onto a piece of the lighter cardstock cut to
2 3/8″ x 3 7/8″

The message “Thanks for being you.” is stamped on the front of the card. The flower petals are enhanced with the Clear Wink of Stella brush that adds a little glitter to the image.  And of course Rhinestone jewels were added along the bottom of the piece.  I used a larger jewel in the center to add a little dimension.

Ready to place an order?  I love to share hostess benefits with my customers!  So if your order is under $150, then use the hostess code RHSP2U6R and I will send you a 6×6 sampler of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalog.  Of course if your order is over $150 collect the hostess benefits for yourself!

So do you like the Island Indigo/Mint Macaroon or Rich Razzleberry/Sweet Sugarplum card better?

Stampin’ Up! OnStage

Last weekend was the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Secaucus, NJ.  I went down with a couple of my downlines and had a great time!  We also took two extra days and spent some time in New York City. 

On Friday we visited the new 9/11 Museum that opened earlier this year…  The museum is an excellent presentation of the events of 9/11 and the following days.  Very sobering.

Saturday was our Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.   This is a picture of a couple of my team members and other Demonstrator friends that I was with on Saturday.  The highlight is getting the new Occasions catalog that will be released in January.  And of course checking out some of the new products!  I am not allowed to show any of the catalog at this point.  But I did pre-order a few sets and my pre-order will be arriving today!  So planning on making some samples over the weekend which I will be able to share with all of you!

During these events Stampin’ Up! also recognizes Demonstrators that have reached a milestone in their careers.  I just celebrated my 15th Anniversary with Stampin’ Up! so was recognized for that achievement!

Falling Flowers Card

falling flowers-wToday I am sharing a Falling Flowers card that I made for the Global-Design-Project Challenge.  This card uses the Falling Flowers stamp set with the coordinating framelits May Flowers.  Make sure to order the bundle!

One of the things that I love about this bundle is the detail of the flowers – I am a sucker for floral stamp sets, but also the detail of the matching framelits.  The framelits not only match the images in the stamp set, but there are also several other flowers and a leaf with details in142329S the framelits.  And there is a beautiful background swirl!  Always great for making a background!

The details on this card:
Card base is Blushing Bride Cardstock with a layer of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  The plaid paper on the side is from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.  I stamped the decorative flourish from the stamp set with Blushing Bride ink on the Very Vanilla cardstock.

The leaves are stamped using Pear Pizazz ink on a scrap of Pear Pizazz cardstock and cut out with the May Flowers Framleits.

The Dahlia on the card is cut from Flirty Flamingo cardstock and attached to a piece of very vanilla cardstock.  I used an aqua painter and Flirty Flamingo ink to paint in the flower.  Then I cut around the image – the set doesn’t have a framelit for the outline of the dahlia image…  And to add a little zing to the card, I painted the flower with the Wink of Stella marker.

Last but not least I wrapped a piece of the Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine around the Designer paper.

I hope you have enjoyed this card!  Here are the supplies that you need to make this project.

Flower Patch Card

Today I am sharing a card that my one of my fellow designers and friend Lisa designed using the Flower Patch stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  fresh printswith the new Affectionately Yours Designer paper.

I belong to a Paper crafting Design Team:  Stamping New England.  Each month, 4 of us make 3 projects each using the same Stampin’ Up! stamp set and designer paper.  So we each have 12 unique projects made with the same supplies but each with a different style…  I love this since everyone has their own style and I love having other designer’s ideas to use!

So what I love about this card is the 3D Flower in the center of the card! ….and what really surprised me was how this card was made!  The Flower Patch stamp set comes with a coordinating set of Framelits – the Flower Fair Framelits.  So the flower is made by cutting the Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy cardstock with the leaf framelit and gluing them together to make the flower!

I would have never thought of that!

The background on this card is Whisper White with a layer of crumb cake.

This card is one of 12 projects that I offer in my June classes.  I will be sharing this project with my Stamper’s Club this month.  My Stamper’s Club projects are also available in my online store HERE.  Interested in getting projects in your email box every month?  Check out my Stamper’s Club!

Flower Patch card with new colors


Todfresh flowersay I have a card that I made using the Stampin’ Up! Flower Patch stamp set and a couple of the new in-colors that will be available on June 1!

I choose the Flower Patch stamp set since that is the set that the Stamping New England Design Team is using for our June Projects.

This card was inspired by this week’s Global Design Team challenge which was to CASE the Designer.  Here is the image.  Since I am a literal person, I used a similar flower set and copied the layout of the card.  GDP036
Then of course I had to my own touch to the card which is the whole idea of a CASE (Copy and Share Everything).  Use someone’s idea for inspiration and then make it your own.  I decided to add a little depth to the card by making a frame around the garden image.  So here are the details:

The card base is the new Flirty Flamingo (I guess I will get good at spelling that word over the next two years!) cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Next is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 8″ x 5 1/4″ scored at 4″.  On the top of this piece of whisper white, I stamped the flower stems with the new in-color ink Emerald Envy.  I then stamped the flowers with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks. 

Then I cut a frame from another 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of whisper white cardstock.   To cut a frame from a piece of cardstock, line up your piece of cardstock on your paper cutter at the width that you want the frame.  This frame is 3/4″ around – so I lined up the first edge of the cardstock at 3/4″.  Before you lower the arm with your cutter blade – make sure the blade is in the middle of this side of the cardstock.  The trick with this technique is to look down on your cutter and use the ruler that is on top of the plastic strip that the blade is in.  Move the blade down to the 3/4″ mark from the bottom edge of this side and then back up to 3/4″ from the top edge of the cardstock.  Turn your cardstock 90 degrees and cut the next side.  Repeat with each side of the cardstock until you have cut out the center to make a frame.
fresh flowers closeup
I wanted to add dimension to my card so I used dimensionals around the edge of the frame and then layered it over the stamped garden image.  In the new catalog there are these really cool dimensional strips that will be perfect for this technique! 

Next of course is the message which I stamped on the frame with Flirty Flamingo ink.  I punched a small butterfly using the small butterfly punch from a scrap of So saffron cardstock.  Last but not least is the bling.  I used Rhinestone jewels on the center of the flowers, the butterfly and around the edge of the card.

 I know that you can’t order the new color inks yet.

So an update on me and Marilyn’s Creative Playground.  I am now moved into my new house but without a lot onew craft spacef furniture.  My furniture has stayed at my other house for now until I have a signed purchase and sale.  But my new Creative Playground is almost all setup.  There are still a few things that I haven’t been able to find and I still need to do some organization.  But I did visit ReStore which is a store that sells used items to raise money for Habitat for Humanity…..  and I found some padded chairs from a conference room that had been turned in.  So I now have a few new chairs.  There were only six – so make sure you are on time to class if you want a comfy chair!!


Until next time…  More ideas coming!  i hope that you liked this Flower Patch card.

Have a great weekend!

Thank you to my team – both Stamping New England and the NEStampINKers and all of my Customers for allowing me to promote to Silver Elite and attend this fantastic event!!



And of course, what is convention without swaps?  Here is one of the swaps that I made to share with others.  This card uses the Watermelon Wonder Cardstock and inks with the Softly falling embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set and is stamped with white ink and embossed on Black cardstock to give the card the Chalkboard look.

I used a piece of Watermelon Wonder Lace to add a shabby chic look and one of the flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set.

Bohemian Watercolor Wings Card

water wings-wToday I have a Watercolor Wings Card made with  Bohemian Designer Paper.  This layout is a tall and thin card that was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.  The dimensions of this card are 9″ x 4 1/4″.

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I wanted to focus on a different Designer paper each week.  Well, a week doesn’t seem to be enough time for one set of Designer paper so I think it will be every 10 days.

So for the next 10 days I will be focusing on Bohemian Designer paper.  So which set did you see and absolutely have to have from the new Catalog?  For me, one of them was Watercolor Wings so that is the set that I used today.

So the details on this card:

Cardstocks:
Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Bohemian Designer paper.

Inks:  Rich Razzleberry, Bermud139424Sa Bay and Delightful Dijon.

The Stamp Set is Watercolor Wings with the Bold Butterflies Framelits to cut out the butterflies.  Watercolor Wings is a 3 part stamp set.  This means that there are 3 images that fit together that you ink up with 3 colors to make a colorful butterfly.   So to make the butterfly, I used Delightful Dijon and stamped off to make a lighter shade of yellow for the background.  I then stamped the outwater wings2 culine around the wings with Bermuda Bay and the details of the wings with Rich Razzleberry. 

The butterfly is then cut with the Bold Butterflies framelits.  To add dimension to the card, I cut a smaller outline butterfly with from Very Vanilla cardstock.  I then sponged on Bermuda Bay to add a little color.

And of course, every card needs some bling.  I used a  little dazzling details on the details of the wings and a few Rhinestone Jewels in thwater wings cue center of the Butterfly.

And don’t forget about the sentiment.   I wanted the sentiment to pop on this card.  So I stamped the “Just for you” with Rich Razzleberry ink and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch.  I sponged the edge so that it pops on the background paper. Then I added a bow made with the Bow Punch from Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I added a small stamped butterfly to the middle of the bow.  Last but not least, I added a piece of Rich Razzleberry ribbon.

So which stamp set was your must have from the new catalog?

Enjoy!

Handmade Christmas Card

DSCN1222wToday I am sharing a handmade Christmas card that I made using the new Lots of Joy Stamp set with the Merry Moments Designer Paper from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.

This card is inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge.  I have been working on my Stamping New England cards for July which are for the theme of Christmas in July using the Lots of Joy stamp set and Merry Moments Designer paper.

So what is Stamping New England?  We are a group of 5 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators with over 40 years of paper crafting experience.  Each month we make 3 projects using the same Designer paper and stamp set(s) and combine our ideas into sets of projects that we offer to our customers….  I use these projects to develop my Stamper’s Club class each month.  Usually this includes a technique and a set of instructions for 4 or 5 projects.  The technique is highlighted in a technique video.  Interested in receiving a FREE technique video complete with project ideDSCN1216cuas each month?  Look at joining my Stamper’s club.

So here are the Details for this card. 

Cardstocks:
The card base is Crumb Cake which has been embossed with the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  I tried something a little different and embossed the card front twice, reversing the stripe to make a crosshatch pattern.  However, the crosshatch pattern is very faint since the second embossing flattens out the first round of embossing.

The DSP is Merry Moments from the new catalog which is layered on Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler.  The DSP pieces are 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ each.  Next is a circle cuts with the circle framelits from the Silver Foil Cardstock.   The Christmas tree is stamped from the Lots of Joy stamp set using Old Olive ink and punched it out with the Tree punch.

And for bling – you always have to have a little bling!  I added a strip of Red Glimmer paper under the silver circle.  I also added random Rhinestone brads around the tree on the silver circle.

I can’t wait to share other Stamping New England projects with you over the next couple of weeks!

Happy Stamping!

More English Garden Cards

garden bloom9_wToday I have another card that I have made with the English Garden DSP and Garden in Bloom stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  Have you figured out that this my favorite Designer paper from the new catalog?

Here are the details on this card:

Cardstocks:  Melon Mambo card base with a layer of Pear Pizazz that has been embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  I have used two pieces of English Garden DSP (the melon mambo stripes and the blushing bride flowered design)

The designer pieces corners have been rounded using the corner rounder.

The flower is stamped with Night of Navy ink and Melon Mambo ink with the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  I really like this new set.

And don’t forget the bling!!  I added a few Rhinestone jewels to the corners of the DSP and a large Rhinestone jewel to the center of the flower!

I have a few more designs to share with you!  So stay tuned!
