Don’t you just love dandelions! It’s such a sweet childhood memory for most! When I saw this set in the Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalog-it was on my top 3 list! I needed a technique for my stamp club this week, so I used the plastic wrap technique! It’s such a simple technique and it was perfect to create a soft background for this stamp set!
Use 2 to 3 re-inker colors and place a few drops into the lid of it’s corresponding color.
Use an aqua painter with rubbing alcohol in it and mix a few drops into the ink.
Wad up some plastic wrap and dab into the color. Randomly smoosh it onto Glossy White Cardstock.
I then stamped the images in Versa Mark and then Silver Embossing powder. Once it is heat set you can adhere it to the Whisper White mat. I paper saved the sentiment on the Pool Party base color and punched it out with Classic Label punch. Then I ran it through the Big Shot with the Tufted Embossing folder.
Be sure to use this month’s hostess code for your own set! Plus it’s bonus days!
I have seen a ton of posts about how to use the Stamparatus to make a wreath pattern with ease! Dawn Griffin has a wonderful tutorial that helped spark my creation! I am holding a class on how to use the Stamparatus on August 5th! There are so many wonderful tips and tricks that this tool can make stamp placement a piece of cake!
I started off with the Tea Room Specialty DSP for a fun color combination. I used one of the fun patterned papers from the pack. Then I used a strip of Crushed Curry to accent the side of the Costal Cabana card base.
I then used the stampartus and a template that I made using the Layering Squares dies. I am in the process of making a video to show how fun you can have with this technique.
I followed the wreath with the Classic Label punch and a strip of Blackberry Bliss just a little bigger than the width and length of the punch. Then I trimmed off the sides using the puched piece as a guide. I then finished it off with Basic Rhinestones and some White Baker’s Twine.
I am in love with the Tropical Chic suite!! The colors are so fun and vibrant! But I have to admit that I didn’t look at this set as one of my first “have to have” sets. My friend used this suite and it just was love at first site! In fact this is a sneak peek of the Creative Class to Go for August! (more to come about that in August).
I have made 4 cards already with this set! This card was really simple to make but it has a lot of character! I cut a strip of Tropical Escape DSP. Then I cut a piece of Sparkle Glimmer paper a tad smaller than the Big Shot leaf die. Next, I took a piece of Basic Black and ran it through the Big Shot with the palm leaves cut outs. I then placed the glimmer paper behind the Basic Black with Glue Dots. I popped the whole piece up with Dimensionals and added the birthday sentiment.
I used the new Shaded Spruce ink pad….it is one of my favorites next to the Granny Apple Green!
Did you know that you can get a FREE ink pad family valued at $67.50 by signing up! That puts the value of the started kit at close to $200 for just $99 plus local tax!
I saw the Better with You stamp set in the new Annual Catalog, and I had to give no line water coloring a try! I was having a hard time deciding on a color scheme and my friend suggested the mad bluebird!

I had never heard of them before and he was so cute!! My water coloring wasn’t exactly no line, but I love how it turned out!
It’s super easy to create! This will be the technique for club this month!
Use a light color to stamp the image you want to color. I used Sahara Sand.
Use your aqua painter & ink refills to create the watercolor images
If you want darker shading, wait for the first layer to dry completely.
I did use a Stampin’ Write marker tip to define his eye and beak.
I completed the look with a pearl colored with a black sharpie.
The background of the Balmy Blue is the new Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder! It turns your card stock into textured in a flash!

Do you need to make several birthday cards at one time? Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is perfect for bright colors, beautiful designs, color combinations, and great graphics! I chose the Garden Impressions DSP 6×6 pack for this card! The colors in this DSP pack are just fun and playful! The concept designers are always on point with their color selections and use of spacing!
I cut the paper to 3″x4″ and used Shaded Spruce 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ as a mat color. I stamped the sentiment with Shaded Spruce on Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot. I used the Stitched Shapes to give it extra texture. I used the Petal Pink Glimmer ribbon to wrap around the DSP/mat piece. Then I used Dimensionals to pop it up.
I love the new Pearlized Doilies! They add that elegant touch with the intricate details and the pearlized white!

How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer?? We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago. This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch! The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images. Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. To create depth, we used dimensionals.
Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper. To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!
Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

The Picture Perfect Party Suite has been one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog! There is still a month left that you can purchase the wonderful products from this suite and the whole catalog!
I made this card for another SWAP for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage earlier this month. I love how the colors pop and celebrate your recipient’s big day! For the candles, I stamped off the solid image and used full strength ink for the patterns. Next, I used the new Stamparatus to line up the Happy Birthday going down the side! Then I ran the Berry Burst strip of paper through the Big Shot with the Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder. This was followed by the Myth & Magic glimmer paper, the Picture Perfect Party DSP pack, and some Silver Baker’s Twine!

I have always admired people who make quilts! I have even thought of trying to make one. But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!! So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern. I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.
To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches. A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!) Shocker! This is the technique card for stamp club this month.
Be sure to get your retiring colors before they are gone! And I added links to the retired list for both the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog 2017-2018! You can have it shipped to you even if you are not local to me!

Fruit Basket is one of those stamp sets that I passed by in the Occasions Catalog and then I started seeing a ton of super cute cards made with it! And then, one of my customers ordered the Tutti-Fruiti DSP pack! I HAD to get the whole suite after that! The suite includes the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Adhesive Backed Sequins, DSP, and Washi tape! There is a set of Tutti-Fruiti Stampin’ Spots too!
The Sale a Bration Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing folder is carrying over to the NEW catalog!!! So, I whipped this card up! I started by stamping some berries and then embossing with Silver Embossing powder over them to make the basket! Then, I stamped & punched out some berried to layer on top. I added some DSP and a Lemon Lime Twist banner for the sentiment! All done! I love how it turned out!
