Vintage Paris

I love everything that has the Eiffel Tower on it! It’s just so majestic and such a beautiful focal point! I have already made 2 cards with the Parisian Blossoms suite and I have several more ready to go! (once I can sit still-ha!)

This card was for my monthly stampers club! We started by stamping the script words with Crumb Cake on to Crumb cake paper. (we did stamp off the full strength first on to our grid paper). Next, we used the Parisian Flourish 3-D folder (151474, page 15 in the Mini Catalog) to create the gorgeous background! To make it have a more vintage feel, we used a sponge to rub across the raised areas.

Next we added some 3/8″ Scalloped Lace trim to create some softness to our vintage card. We then ran some Basic Gray for the Eiffel Tower, Blushing Bride for the blossom, and some Silver Foil for the word through the die cutting machine. A pearl was the final touch! What do you think?

Be sure to get your FREE Sale-a-bration items with every $50 you spend! Plus, order through me (be sure to mark ok to contact) and I will mail you a thank you gift! Blessings!

Sheltering Umbrella

The Umbrella Builder Punch helps make cards pop in a snap!

My bestie and I just went on a craft retreat last weekend! It was so nice to have some creative time after such a busy holiday! We live in the crazy weather state-Texas! While at the retreat-we had severe weather (including tornadoes) and snow the next morning! Just crazy! But it inspired me to use this lovely Under My Umbrella Bundle!

I saw a card on Pinterest that inspire me to use the No Line Watercolor technique for the main image!i love the softness it created! To create this: use ink pads or markers to stamp the lined portion of your stamp on to paper. The. You will use a Blender pen and re-inker to color the insiders the image in the matching color. The results are stunning!

Next step is to stamp the umbrella on to the card stock color of your choice and punch it out. I added some extra bling with the new Champagne Basic Jewels! That needs to be a staple in our main catalog! Love these! Next, I added some rain drops in Pool Party on Pool Party cardstock. I cut out the stamped image and sentiment using the Stitched Nested labels. Of course I had to add Wink of Stella on the flowers!

Vintage Daisy Lane

My creative mojo was definitely flowing when I made this card! When I looked at what I had in my basket after I was done, I realized that I had made one of those $100 cards! LOL!

I used 4 punches, 2 stamp sets, a die, linen thread, epoxy gem, and cardstock. Now, I had a great tip from a fellow demonstrator on how to build your “sandwich” with your die cutting machine to help cut out all those little dots on the lace!

You will need your die cutting machine, multipurpose platform (that has tabs), precision plate, 1 clear standard pad, wax paper, lint roller, and die brush.

  1. Place one piece of wax paper onto the precision plate (which is on top of the multipurpose plate on tab 2).
  2. Then place your paper on top of the wax paper at an angle.
  3. Place a second sheet of wax paper on top of the paper.
  4. Place your Stitched Lace die on top of the wax/paper at and angle. (this helps keep the die from warping)
  5. Run it through the die cutting machine once for Whisper White and twice for other cardstock/thicker DSP)
  6. Use a lint roller to remove the small pieces.
  7. For the stubborn last few pieces, you can use the die brush to coax them out!

Works like a charm each time! My club girls have had no problems!!!

Use a Stampin’ Blend marker to color your Clear Epoxy Gems!!!

Watercolor Smoosh

I saw Elizabeth Bennett’s  beautiful card on our own Demonstrator Planning Place FB page and I had to make one like it! It was our technique for our monthly stamp club too! It’s a bit messy, but it’s so worth it!

You will need the following: Stampin’ Up! Water Color Paper;  Ink Refills of your choice (I used Pacific Point, Highland Heather, and Night of Navy); Frost White Shimmer Paint, plastic wrap, paper towels, and a drop cloth/paper. (protection for your craft surface).

First you want to spritz your watercolor paper on both sides to prevent curling. I placed it on a paper towel that was folded up for more protection. Then, I dropped 2-3 of each color & the Frost White Shimmer paint onto the plastic wrap. Next, spritz it with water and place your watercolor paper/towel on top. Carefully flip it over and move the inks around until you like the mix. Let dry overnight and peel off the plastic wrap! They all turned out different and stunning! If you are in a hurry, you can pull up the wrap in a few minutes and heat set with the Heat Tool. But-it won’t have the crisp lines from the plastic wrap.

And now you can stock up on these goodies and earn $5 coupons for every $50 this month! You can use your $5 coupons in August!!! Shop by Clicking on Laura’s Stampin’ Up! Website

AND if you love having a discount on your craft supplies, then this is a great time to sign up too! You get an additional $30 of product to add to the normal $125! That’s $155 worth of any current product (plus business supplies-catalogs for your friends). And they are throwing in a $10 coupon to use in August (which is Holiday Catalog PRE ORDER!!)

And when you order for yourself as a demo, you still get host rewards @ $150 merchandise and the bonus coupons! That’s a lot of savings!
