How to Make a Beautiful Background using Bubbles

I have seen the Bubble Background Technique before and I saved it to a private board-a few years ago! So, I finally decided to give it a whirl! This was so much fun, and a little messy! I really did feel the enjoyment of my childhood when we would blow bubbles outside!

I made a video for you to learn how to create these whimsical backgrounds for your cards or pages! (excuse this one, it’s with my new equipment, I was a little giddy! And the video is not centered. Eh, whatcha gonna do?)

This is one of those sets that you need to keep so you always have accents at your fingertips! I can see home décor, scrapbook pages, cards, kids project, and so much more!

A few quick tips:

1. Dish soap and water do not yield great results.

2. I used a bendy straw so I didn’t accidentally blow on the wrong end and have inky lips.

3. Be sure to keep the paper away from the top of your container-it will leave a circle.

4. The lighter your ink color, the more drops you will need.

The Gold Cord in the Forever Greenery ribbon combo pack frays simply! Love the light touch!

I would love to see your creations! You can purchase the items used to make this card from the list below. It’s Bonus Days through the end of July! For every $50 you spend, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! with a $5 off your purchase in August. I have 8 already-crazy!

For orders $149 and less-use this code!

When your wish list is super long, you should consider the savings you would have by joining our Crafter’s Corner Teams! You don’t have to sell-a lot of my team are here for the discount! But we all have become wonderful friends! For $99 plus tax, you will get to pick out $125 in any current catalog items (including any pre-order items!) What you order/sell will become a 20% savings (or extra fun money from orders!)

Many blessings to you and your family!

Simply Sailing

Do you have a hard time creating masculine cards? I sometimes do, but I just got the Sailing Home Bundle on my pre-order last week! Then I saw a great layout with a card in the catalog. I just starting creating and this card was done in about 5 minutes! I love it when the crafting stars align!!

It’s so easy to make home décor, scrapbook pages, gift bags, tags, gift boxes, and of course, cards! The suite includes DSP that is just gorgeous! And there are these cute Sail Away trinkets, Baker’s Twine, Memories n More, a 3-D embossing folder, coordination dies, and the stunning stamp set! And you now can order the whole suite with one code!!

I love the monochromatic combination with the DSP for this card!

I made this card for my Annual New Catalog & Customer Appreciation event this past weekend! I am soooo excited we can all order from this amazing catalog! We had fun playing with new products, creating this card, snacking, shopping the “destash” items, and meeting new friends!

I am betting that the site will be slow after the catalog goes LIVE at 12:00pm (MT) tomorrow! Just keep trying! Need a catalog? Just ask!

Happy stampin’!

Incredible Bluebonnets

final-4

This is one creative way to use the stamps in the Incredible Like You stamp set!  I saw a few on Pinterest and Stampin’ Up!’s site-so I had to recreate it!  I used Night of Navy and Blueberry Bushel to create the bluebonnets.  To create softer flowers, I stamped twice with the inked stamp before re-inking it.  The stems of the flowers are stamped in Call Me Clover and are stamped twice as well.

I love the cascading from one side to the other to leave room for the sweet sentiment!  To make the outside base look soft and not overpowering, I used the Subtle Embossing Folder. This is a must have embossing folder!  It’s so versatile and I use it a lot!

final-5

As you can see, I used Wink of Stella on some of the blossoms to make it sparkle!

Thankful Country

KSME2505 (1)

The Country Home stamp set is one of my favorite “go to” sets!  It captures the farmhouse style and delivers wonderful water colored results! Not to mention you can use it all year for multiple occasions!

I chose to stamp the succulent bouquet with Soft Suede ink because it was a water based ink. The Stampin’ Blends worked well with the line color because it was water based and the Blends are alcohol based.  I then chose to color the bouquet with the following Stampin’ Blends: Soft Suede light/dark; Blackberry Bliss light/dark ; Mint Macaron light/dark; Cajun Craze light, and Crumb Cake light. Next, I fussy cut the image out and accented it with Wink of Stella.

OMBI4934

I ADORE the Chicken Wire and I pray it stays as a regular in our next Annual Catalog! I used this behind the Country Lane DSP banner I cut out.  Then, I stamped the sentiment on Mint Macaron with Blackberry Bliss Ink.  It’s all topped off with the new Braided Linen thread!  (I am on my 3rd roll already!)

Do you want to get a few items?  If you check “no contact” I can’t mail you any goodies for your first order with me!  I thank you for those who have ordered!  Here is this month’s host code!  Just use it at check out for your FREE Embossing Powder!

Simple Hugs

Healing Hugs 1

Wow!!  The dist-ink-tive stamps in the Healing Hugs is just stunning!  Look at the detail!! Berry Burst is still one of my favorite 2017-2019 In Colors!  I paired it up with Granny Apple Green!  (I LOVE THIS Color!) It still gives a pop of green with out being too bright!  I still love Lemon Lime Twist, but this is a new option for pops of color!

I made this card for my upcoming Sweet & Simple class next week (6/27/18 @ 7pm for my local peeps).  I did use the cross-stitch patterned stamp as a color on color image on the card base.  It needed extra depth-but I didn’t want to use the Big Shot on both cards for this class.  I hold a class one evening every month and rotate the night.  I like to have this class available for people that are new to stamping or need a quick creative fix!

Healing Hugs 2

June 22nd is the last day to get your FREE Creative Card Class to Go!  This is great for people that cannot make classes but love to create!  It gives you 3 designs with the same stamp set/bundle!

Nature at it’s Best

final-16

Who is ready for the NEW catalog!!???  I have a LONG wish list!!!  I can guarantee that Rooted in Nature stamp set and the coordinating Nature’s Roots Framelits is a must for your wish list!  Look how quickly you can create simple, elegant, and masculine cards with it!

This card was made for my club members last month! We stamped the tree in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla.  Then, we adhered the Nature’s Poem DSP strip & smaller strip together.  To finish that piece, we tied Linen Thread around it twice and tied a knot.  Next, we cut out a leaf stamped in Grapefruit Grove (a new favorite color of mine!) and a Copper Foil piece too! It was easily assembled onto Tranquil tide and Mint Macaron!

final-17

And TODAY IS THE DAY!!!  AT 12:00 (MT) you can order from the new catalog!!  How do you ask??  Simply go to my site: www.Lvenvertloh.stampinup.net and order!  If you want to order $150 or more-reap the host benefits for yourself!  Or you can add the hostess code: XP2XCXSA at check out!

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!

Painted Fall Flowers

JVHL4014

I LOVE this bundle!  I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog!  Do you need a copy mailed to you?  Let me know!

I made this one for our monthly club.  I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower.  The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella.  I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP.  To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.

The color combinations with this set are endless!  I have seen so beautiful cards and boxes made with this set!

World Card Making Day is coming!  To help celebrate, Stampin’ Up! has a 2 promotions!
