Happy August! Carols of Christmas stamp set

Carols of Christmas stamp setToday I am sharing the new Carols of Christmas stamp set that you can now order!  This is one of the new beautiful Holiday stamp sets that will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. 

My Stamping cohort Lisa from the Stamping New England Design team made this beautiful card.

The card base is Whisper White cardstock with a layer of So Saffron Cardstock.  Next is a layer of Pacific Point cardstock that has been cut with the sky thinlits that are part of this set, so the So saffron cardstock shows thru the moon and stars…

Lisa made the snow by tearing a few scraps of Whisper White cardstock and layering them to look like snow drifts.  The trees and deer are also cut using the framelits. 

Here is a short video highlighting some of the things that you can make with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Ready to place an order?  If you are in the US and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator.  If your order is under $150, use the hostess code PVD36PFP and I will send you a sampler of the new Be Merry Christmas paper.  Of course if your order is over $150, then collect the hostess benefits for yourself.  I love to share the host benefits with my loyal customers!

Thanks for stopping by Marilyn’s Creative Playground and checking out my project made with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Creative Crafter’s Escape was the best!

I just want to say thank you to my team mates on the Stamping New England Team for our first full day retreat last Saturday the 17th filled with Stampin’ Up! fun.  We had soooooo much fun!!!  And we are working on a second day for October 14th!  So mark your calendars now!  You don’t want to miss it! 

Creative Crafter's EscapeThis is the hall all setup before everyone came in.  It looks so peaceful (and clean).

Each person had 6′ of space to themselves to work on their projects.  We also had tables with lots of great retired product for sale.















There were 3 classes offered during the day featuring product from the new 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

A Daisy class featuring the new Delightful Daisy stamp set taught by Jeannie Nielsen.

The second class was a Beautiful 3D Frame taught by Debby Donovan.  These frames are made with the Hightide Stamp set and Colorful Seasons stamp set and framelits.











And the 3rd Class was a Stunning set of cards made with the Stampin’ Up!  Hightide Stamp Set led by Margaret Galvez!






I can’t wait to see what else my team designs using some of the new sets in the gorgeous 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog!

Are you in the US and need a Demonstrator?  I would love to be your demonstrator.  Send me an email at marilyn.sanclemente@comcast.net and I will send you a catalog!

Succulent Garden Ideas

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the Stampin’ Up! Succulent Garden suite of products.  All I can say is WOW!!  I love flowers and floral papers.  This is my new favorite floral set!  This set allows you to make beautiful 3D flowers.  Warning, it takes some time to cut all the pieces for these flowers.  So this is not a Stamp set that you would go to for quick cards.  Although that might be a good challenge.  Design some quick and easy cards with this set.

Well I am digressing.  So here are the details for this card.  This project uses the Succulent Garden Suite of products from Stampin’ Up!.  That is the Oh So Succulent Bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Framelits.  The paper is the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.

First you want to start by cutting out the 5 layers of the solid image flower using the framelits.  Stamp the tips of the larger layers with Sweet Sugarplum ink and the small stamp that highlights the tip of the flower.  I used glue dots to assemble the layers of the flower together.  I suggest that while you are cutting, cut out extra pieces so you can make the flowers to have on hand for cards…  I made a stack of flowers using a lot of colors including, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Mint Macaroon, Perfect plum and Wisteria Wonder and of course Whisper White.

The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ layer of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock and a 3 3/4″ x 5″ layer of the Sweet Sugarplum checker pattern paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.  Adhere the designer paper to the Whisper White layer.  Add a piece of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon around the top left corner of the card.

Next is a 3″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Sweet Sugarplum layered with a 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of the flowered pattern of Succulent Garden DSP.  Then a 2 1/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Old Olive cardstock layered with a 2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Old Olive patterned paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.

Last, I added the flower at the intersection of the two DSP layers.  I love the look of this package of Designer Paper.

Here are the supplies that are used to make this card:

Product List

I will be adding a class with this stamp set on my Calendar for the spring!  Stay tuned to see what I make with the other flowers that I have.

Happy Stamping!

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!
