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!

Waterfront Silhouette

JHFI6547 (1)

I love when the moon reflects off of a lake at nighttime.  I decided to try and capture that look with this silhouette on water color paper.

Here is how I created this card:

1.      Stamp the moon with Versa Mark and sprinkle with Clear Embossing powder on the watercolor paper.  Heat set.

2.     Start at the top of the watercolor paper using an Aqua Painter and Night of Navy ink and wash back and forth.  I made it darker at the top.  You can go back after one layer dries to add more depth.

3.     I followed up with Perfect Plum to give it the night sky effect. Let dry or heat set.

4.     Run the Basic Grey piece through the Big Shot with the Petal Garden embossing folder. Adhere to the card.

5.     Tie the Basic Grey ribbon to the card.

6.     Stamp your sentiment and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Circle.

7.      Use Basic Black to stamp the mountains and trees onto the watercolor paper.  It must be completely dry.

8.     Then stamp the water with the Night of Navy full strength. 

9.     Go back and add more color wash if needed.  I did stamp some water at the bottom with Night of Navy stamped off.

10.  Adhere to the Basic Black mat piece. Add Dimensionals to the back to adhere to the card.

11.   Use the Dimensionals to pop up the sentiment too.

Amazingly Simple

XIYS1259

Who loves to make quick and simple cards??  I do!  I made this for my Sweet & Simple class and I am using it as a SWAP for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! On Stage event!

The set is called Amzing You and it is a FREE item from the Sale a Bration catalog!  How do you earn it for FREE??  (and there are several other items available for FREE too!) For every $50 spent, you earn an item!  There are even great items for $100 levels too!  Click on Laura Venvertloh’s website to shop now!

I first used Smoke Slate as my card base and cut the Petal Passion DSP as a background paper piece.  I stamped the flower and colored it with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends pack (144603) and a Color Lifter (144608) They are going on back order soon if not already….they are very popular right now!

As you know, I am a Wink a Holic!  So, naturally I Winked the flower and added a clear Faceted Gem for the center. A quick cut out of the sentiment with the Stitched Framelits, and done!

Petal Soft & FREE card kit

XABU9988

I made a very similar card for a dear friend’s wedding.  I loved it so much that I re-made it for a club card for this month!  The Petal Palette stamp set and matching Petals & More Thinlits have been a favorite this past month!

I first stamped the leaf bunch with Pool Party on Pool Party card stock.  I did stamp off on one of the layers to give it a more subtle feel.  Next, I cut out the ornate accent with Silver Foil and layered half of a Doily underneath.  I tussled some Silver Bakers twine behind the flowers after using dimensionals to pop it up.  Look how ornate and elegant the Stampin’ Blends make the colors on the bouquet!  Of course I added Wink of Stella Clear to the flowers!

The Garden Trellis embossing folder was used for more texture behind the flowers.  It was finished off with a sentiment from the Petal Pallet set cut out with the thinlit included.

I just finished the last card for the FREE Creative Class to Go kit!  What is that?  You order the bundle on my website using this month’s hostess code.  Then, Stampin’ Up! send the stamp bundle to you directly.  If you are local-just pick up the cute case that contains your consumable products to make 6 cards!  (3 designs-2 of each).

My part includes project supplies, PDF file, list of items needed, and priority postage. (separate PayPal for out of town)   Prepaid bundles/sets vary each month depending on the set:

*****Just go to my website, create an account, add the item, and use the hostess code 7SN6A699 at check out. Include your email for an invoice for out of town priority shipping.

If you order more items and it goes over $150, don’t order with the hostess code.  You can redeem the hostess rewards with your own order! 

* remember photopolymer & clear stamp sets require you to use a clear block and those are sold separately.    Creative Class Bundle Order due no later than March 26th.

Indepedent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator

Birthday · Sale a Bration

Graceful peacock

I love how easy it is to make an elegant and graceful card with the Beautiful Peacock! This is one of the FREE choices from the Sale-a-bration catalog with a $50 purchase!  It is a photopolymer set which makes it easy for lining up Eastern Palace DSP.  I used Versa Mark and Gold embossing powder for the swirly part of the feathers.

Then, I used coordinating Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide to complete the small flower details around the feathers.  Finally, I topped it off with the 1/8″ Fresh Fig ribbon!

I check my demonstrator web page a couple times a day.  Yesterday they announced that there may be a backorder on some of the Stampin’ Blends.   They have been super popular and they are working with the supplier to get more.  Here is the list of colors to purchase or stock up today!

Beautiful Stained Glass

final

I am so happy that we have the new Stampin’ Blends markers!  They are alcohol based markers that make shading a snap!  The collection can be sold as a whole set, in pairs, or per marker.  There are also color lifters, Ivory, and Bronze colors to make your skin tones easy too!

I wanted to focus on a fun technique this month at club, and used them with the Stained Glass technique.  It’s super simple and yields gorgeous results!

  1. USE the Embossing Buddy!! I usually forget using it, but for this technique, it’s a must.  Rub some on the surface of the vellum.
  2. Next, use Versa Mark and stamp your image on the vellum.
  3. Use a dark or metallic embossing powder to sprinkle on top.
  4. Heat the powder using the heat tool.
  5. Choose your markers that you want to use and color on the BACK side of the vellum.
  6. Adhere your vellum to a light colored card stock.  I used Glue Dots under the wings to keep them hidden.

final-1

I also used Washi Tape to keep the sides down and a Glue Dot on top covered by the Fresh Fig bow. I am so ready for warmer weather and pretty flowers! So, you may see a lot of bright colors and flowers coming!  After this cold/flu/sick season….I am done!
