Flowering Desert

img_2951

It has been a busy start to 2019!  After a whirlwind of events over the holidays and now I had a part time job fall into my lap!  My physical therapist for the past 4 years hired me for his new clinic. I have missed working with patients! BUT-I am still crafting my heart out!

I had my Occasions Open house last weekend and this card was featured!  I fell in love with the Flowering Desert set!  Succulents and cacti are everywhere now!  It’s a fun new image for making cards and other paper crafts!

I also used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  This is one set of dies you HAVE to have!  Paper saving, fun shapes, and that textured stitched look just adds great dimension to your creations!

New Year, New Stamps!

img_2777

Wow!  What a exciting and busy Christmas Season!  I had 6 vendor events on top of the normal family gatherings!  And I had knee surgery!  Well, it’s a New Year, and I am ready to get the ball rolling again!

Guess what started today!!???  SALE-A-BRATION!  That means for every $50 or $100 you spend, you get to choose your FREE items out of the Sale-a-bration Catalog!  I can mail you each new catalog!

Here is my new FAVE!  Needle & Thread stamp set and the coordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits!  Look at the stitching detail it gives you when you run it through the Big Shot!  And I LOVE this Highland Heather color!  The paper is from the Gingham Collection-it’s full of bright and springy colors! (and there is a FREE ribbon pack that matches!)

img_2779

There is another gem is the Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  Oh My!  It saved paper for one and created stitching around the other piece!  So I have a full rectangle piece of this beautiful Gingham Gala paper to use on another project!

Merry Buffalo Check

KJZC0966

Are you as obsessed with the Buffalo Check craze as I am?  When I saw the Buffalo Check Background stamp, I bought it with my first order! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and I love how it turned out!

I highly recommend to buy the wood mount with background sets.  I like that they stamp a much more even and crisp image.

TIP: ink your stamp with your color of choice and lay your stamp rubber side up.  Place your paper on top of the rubber.  Then, pull your grid paper (or a piece of scratch paper) and rub all over to get an even image.  And no ink on you!

KRKR4311To make the sentiment pop, I used the marker to rubber method.  I always huff on it before stamping the image too! To finish it off, I used the 1/8″ Real Red ribbon and Burlap ribbon to make it look farmhouse!

Do you know that the ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA is going on right now?  There are 3 different sales now through next week!  Be sure to get your favorites at 10% off! Here is the schedule of sales:

Sweet Candy Canes

img_3732

I love all the girls on my team!  We are having our quarterly Team Gathering & Opportunity night on November 29th! I made this card for the Make & Take!

Are you curious about what is involved with being a part of our team?

  • Just picture a discount on every purchase (or sale) without a coupon!
  • Sneak peek of new products AND you can pre-order them!
  • A wonderful community of fellow crafters near and far!
  • Opportunity to make some extra income!
  • Enjoy your hobby with quality products!

Just click on Join Laura’s Creative Corner and start a new and inspiring journey! Right now we can pre-order the following:

I almost didn’t buy the Candy Cane Season bundle-but I am so glad I did!  The photopolymer images make stamping a snap! Plus, the bundle includes the Candy Cane Builder punch-so if you need to make multiple cards, it’s in the bag!

Imagine the cute tags you can create with the Candy Cane Season set!  It also includes a “to & from” stamp!  I also adore the snowflake cluster stamp!  Look at the cute background you can create just like that!

img_3733

Another benefit of this bundle is the Bow part of the Candy Cane Builder punch! No ribbon required! (unless you want to!) Of course Wink of Stella had to be added-so addicted!

Do you stamp your envelopes?  Did you know that Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes are smooth like our Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stock?  This mean your recipients can feel the excitement of your gesture before even opening the card!

img_3735Stay tuned!  I sense a awesome sale coming for Black Friday! Check back for all the details!

Happy Stampin’ Laura

Oh Christmas Tree!

img_3711

Don’t you love it when you come up with a design and it just gels together!!?  I have always adored vintage cards that use Sheet Music! Stampin’ Up! has answered that obsession by offering the Sheet Music Background stamp!  Just think of all the music lovers in your life and the possibilities this one stamp could give you!

To make this card even better, I paired it with the tree from the Winter Woods stamp set!  And, there is the In the Woods Framelit collection that helps you cut the tree out in a snap!  (this card would be a great one to reproduce for your seasonal card this year) And for a bonus tip: paper save by using your Smoky Slate mat as your surface to stamp your greeting.  Once you punch it out and adhere the sheet music piece on top, no one will know!

img_3712

I used Wink of Stella clear on the white areas of the tree image for an extra sparkle.  I used the Under the Mistletoe DSP for this card-but any 1″ piece from your Christmas stash will do!  I liked the DSP because it coordinated so well with the Shaded Spruce card base. ( I LOVE THIS COLOR)

Now for some serious business.  If you have the following items on  your wish list, you need to get them ASAP!  This catalog has been so popular that we are running low on these and will not have time to re stock before the catalog’s end date.  (and for your Christmas creations). Take a look at the graphic and following list.  Please go to my site and get your items.

**  Be sure to use the host code for November P4GTSGNT at check out.  I’ll even send you a gift!

Winter Farmhouse

Do you love the farmhouse style? I absolutely love it! It was the first suite I was drawn to in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog! The Tin Tile Embossing Folder has amazing details and using the new Galvanized Silver Foil Sheet makes it pop!

Moving on to the tree! It comes from the In the Woods dies! I love how it creates parts of the tree that are 3-D. I saw. Post on Patty Bennett’s site about using your Spritzer with rubbing alcohol and some Frost White Shimmer Paint. The results are amazing!

This picture does to do the tree justice! The Champagne Mist color is very elegant as well! (think Wink of Stella on steroids) To finish the card, I added some 5/8″ Striped Burlap Trim, a Galvanized Button, some Linen Thread, and a sentiment!

This was a stamp a stack card this past weekend. I cut and spritzed the trees for them so there isn’t a log jam at the Big Shot. But the end result makes it worth it!

Confession!  After using the Big Shot for over 10 years, I have never ruined a die.  Well, I put the die and the paper on top of the sandwich.  I ran it through thinking it felt and sounded odd.  I completely bowed the die!!!!!  It was my first of 32 to make!  I cut the rest out with the warped die.  Then, I flipped it and ran it through incorrectly again.  I was so nervous!  But to my surprise, it flattened it out!  Like it never happened!  Shew!!
