Bloom with Hope card colored with Blendabilities

 

Did you see the exciting news !? 

The new Blendabilities markers will be rolling out and ready to order on Tuesday, July 1st!!  I'm so excited!! 

These are SOOO MUCH FUN to use! I LOVED to color as a child and this is just total therapy for me to sit and color with these markers!!!  Did you love to color, too?

Bloom-with-hope-blendabilities-stampin-up-typeset-1

My card today features a vintage look with the new Venetian Crochet Trim (pg 206) and the Typeset Designer series paper (pg 184) from Stampin' Up!.  I wanted a soft vintage feel for this one and I think I did it!  You can WATCH THE VIDEO HERE to see how to alter the Window Frame Framelits for the card above. I stamped a flower image (big surprise, right?) from the Bloom with Hope Hostess set (pg 240) in Memento Black ink on the Very Vanilla die cut. I also punched out a Decorative Label punch from Basic Black cardstock and cut it in 1/2 and tucked the 2 halves in behind the altered framelit.

Bloom-with-hope-blendabilities-stampin-up-typeset-2

Here are the 3 colors of Blendabilities I used on this card:

Bloom-with-hope-blendabilities-stampin-up

I blended the Medium Pumpkin Pie marker with the Blush marker (from the Skin Tone set) on the flowers and I used the light Old Olive marker for the stem.

Bloom-with-hope-blendabilities-stampin-up-typeset-vintage-crochet-trim

I layered 2 ribbons on top of each other.. the new Venetian Crochet Trim on top of the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon.  I tied them both around the 4x4 card at once.

Bloom-with-hope-blendabilities-stampin-up-typeset-sneak-peek

You will definitely need to use the new Memento Black ink pad when stamping on Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock, before coloring with the Blendabilities.

Project Life Nerd Power Father's Day Card

 

Ok, any of you who are Bay Area Oakland A's fans know what I'm talking about when I say Nerd Power... and I'm proud to say I even own "Sogards"... Eric Sogard of the Oakland A's is known for his "nerd power" glasses, and I was SOOOO excited to see them in the Happiness Is Project Life card pack!  I knew immediately that I'd make a Father's Day card with this fun printed card!

Project-life-happiness-is-glasses-mustache-stampin-up

Yep, those are my nerd power "Sogards"... I've worn glasses since I was 3 years old and during the day I wear contacts with strong reading glasses over them. I have had my Sogards for about 2 years and was "tickled" (as my grandma would say) that they are actually trendy now because of Eric Sogard!  LOL

This is the card I made for Eric (Eric Bennett, not Eric Sogard) for Father's Day:

Project-life-happiness-is-glasses-mustache-card-stampin-up

Since Mr. Bennett has had a mustache for about 29 of the 30 years I've known him, I thought it was a fun idea to add the mustache die cut to this card :)  He seemed to like the card! The mustache framelit die is on pg 230 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog (#133741), and available here online.

The card printed with the glasses is found in the Happiness Is Project Life card packet, pg 189, #135307.

Below is the inside of the card.. anything with grid paper makes my heart sing.. so I grabbed this piece of printed paper out of the Moonlight DSP stack.  I added some Washi Tape from the Epic Day package (pg 190, #131269).

Moonlight-whats-up-arrow-punch-fabulous-four-card

The celebrate greeting is from the Fabulous Four stamp set, pg 13, #134171 / 134174  and the arrow is punched out with the What's Up punch, new this year and found on pg 222, #133781.

Project-life-whats-up-arrow-punch-fabulous-four

Project-life-happiness-is-glasses-mustache-paper-pumpkin-stampin-up

The Father's Day greeting was from the May My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss ink and added the dots with a Stampin' Write marker. 

This would also make a great guy card for any occasion.. just swap out the greeting for birthday, thinking of you, miss you, love you, take me out to dinner... :)

If you wanted to make several of these cards, you can download the My Digital Studio Happiness Is digital file and print as many of these Nerd Power glasses cards as you wish! :)

Back to Black Funky Fruit Card

 

I had this crazy idea to cut the fruit shapes out of the Back to Black Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! and add them to a card... well, this is what I came up with .. it's one colorful, funky fruit card!!!!

You might need your sunglasses for this one!!  It's kinda bright! :)

Back-to-black-dsp-funky-fruit-card-#hello

This is a 4-1/4" square card made from Whisper White cardstock. The orange striped paper is 4" square (from the Flowerpot DSP pack - see below). Both the Flowerpot and Back to Black DSP packs are found on pages 186 and 187.

Back-to-black-dsp-fruit-card-stampin-up-paper

Above & Below: this is the Back to Black paper that I cut the fruit out of.. there are 12 patterns in the package (below) and although I love the whole package, this one really caught my eye.  You can find the Back to Black DSP on pg 187 in the new catalog.

133700-back-to-black-dsp-sample

Purchase your Back to Black Designer Paper in my online store

Below:  I added stems and leaves by die cutting some Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the Flower Frenzy Big Shot Die (pg 232, #133728) and then I added sweet little punched out flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents punch trio (pg 222, #133787). A Candy Dot was the perfect accent for the center of each flower.

Back-to-black-dsp-fruit-card-flower-frenzy

The Designer Paper in the background of this card is from the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper package (pg 186, #133698).

Back-to-black-dsp-fruit-card-#hello

The new 1/4" cotton ribbon is super yummy to use.. soft and flexible and ties so easily!  I used a piece of Pear Pizzazz 1/4" cotton ribbon on this card (pg 207, #134562.

The greeting is from the #hello set on pg 128 #134237 (wood) and #134240 (clear). I stamped it on Whisper White and cut it out in a banner shape, using the What's Up! arrow punch to punch the end of the banner.

Whats-up-arrow-punch-banner-stampin-up

What do you think? Is this card too crazy? Or is it just FUN!?

Video Tip: Using Fast Fuse Stampin Up Adhesive

 

Don't miss the NEW WEEKLY DEALS -Stampin' Up Products on Sale 6/24 to 6/30

I REALLY love this new Fast Fuse Adhesive from Stampin' Up!  It works a little differently from Stampin' Up! Snail Adhesive, so let me give you some tips that will help you enjoy it too!

Fast-fuse-adhesive-stampin-up

Watch the VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW or click here if you are reading this in an email

 

 So remember.. make that little "check mark" when you get to the end of your strip of Fast Fuse and you'll have great results!

When to use Fast Fuse?

  • On cardstock that has been embossed with a design (see example below)
  • On 3-D projects like die cut boxes
  • On book or journal covers that will get lots of use
  • When you need a strong bond but want something quicker than Sticky Strip
  • Memory preservation projects

Creative Challenge Club Sketch CCC01 - Flashback Card

 

Ccc-buttonI am excited to be part of the fun new Creative Challenge Club design team!!  I was invited to participate by submitting a project each week using the sketch of the week. You can see more info on our website about the Creative Challenge Club here.

This is our sketch this week, and our projects all use this design layout for inspiration!

CCC001-001

Creative Challenge Club Sketch CCC01

Here is my card using our first sketch! So exciting!

Flashback-thanks-card-stampin-up

 You can Play Along with us by linking your creation on our blog! if there are 10 entries per week, a prize will be given away!!

The card base is Real Red cardstock cut to 4-1/4" x 11" and folded in 1/2 the hot dog way.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Flashback DSP. The Pennant background is a Project Life Card from the Little Moments Project LIfe Card package (pg 189, #135299).

Stamping Tip:  an easy way to get this Thanks So Much stamp inked in 2 colors is to ink the whole thing first on the Hello Honey ink pad and then use your Real Red Marker to color just the words... it's a little quicker than doing the whole thing with markers.

  Flashback-#hello-thanks-card

I know for some of you, creating projects using a sketch as your inspiration is "old hat"... you've been there done that... well, for me, this is the first time I've ever done this!!!  eeeek!!  I hope you will join us if this is your first or 10,000th time stamping a card from a sketch!  Remember.. prizes will be given away if we have at least 10 people participating each month!

Flashback-thanks-card-heart-punch-tip-stampin-up

Heart Punch Tip:  I found that I wanted to add a couple hearts to this card and loved the "sketchy" look of this heart stamp from the Work of Art stamp set (pg 165), but I didn't want to cut them out, so I just punched them and I like how they turned out!

I used the fun new Flashback DSP (pg 186, #133699) for this card, along with the new #hello stamp set (pg 128, #134237 (wood) & #134240 (clear).

  Flashback-#hello-card-cotton-ribbon-stampin-up

The double ribbon embellishment features 1/4" cotton ribbon in Real Red (#134563) and Hello Honey stitched satin ribbon (#133671), both found on pg 207.

You can see all of the submissions on our Creative Challege Club site.

I hope you like these cards we made in Stamp Class last weekend!

Some of the new Stampin' Up! stamps and products I used are:

Beautiful Bunch Stamp set, pg 158, #134279 (wood), #134282 (clear)

matching flower punch: Fun Flower, pg 219, #133785

You really need to add these to your wish list.. and while you are at it, add this gorgeous new embossing folder.. how pretty is this embossed in Whisper White Cardstock!?? aaah!!!! Lovely Lace embossing folder, pg 227, #133737.

Oh, and the new greetings I used are from the Hey You set... i am pretty sure this is this set gets the award for "most hidden in the catalog".. find it on pg 103!! They are shown at 1/2 size so they are easy to miss!

Above: you can see that once you emboss it if you flip the paper over, you can either get an embossed (raised) or debossed (depressed) impression on the paper! That's like 2 embossing folders in one! :) (2, 2, mints in 1) (remember that?)

 

<<< This is the beautiful Lovely Lace Embossing Folder... wow.. even my best stamping friends said "This is a Patty embossing folder"... do they know me or what!?

I punched the leaves using the same Fun Flower punch and a green cardstock scrap.. great way to use up scraps!

While you have that wish list out, may I suggest adding the gorgeous new Blackberry Bliss ink and ribbon to your order?  Wow.. .BEST new color ever!! 

I stamped the dotted center with Daffodil Delight and punched it out with the 7/8" scallop circle punch.. this would have been equally as pretty with the new Hello Honey ink, too!  Then I added Pearls and colored them with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities marker (coming soon!).

Lucilles-lunch-patty-cindee-joy-ashleyBirthday lunch celebration at Lucille's! Cindee, Patty, Ashley, Joy

Floral-frames-candy-treat-lullaby-1I love celebrating with friends.. . and I just had to share this adorable treat from Cindee with you!  She made this little candy treat for me and gave it to me when we got together for lunch to celebrate my birthday last month.. it is so cute!!

Floral-frames-candy-treat-lullaby-2She used the Floral Framelits Big Shot die and the new Lullaby paper from Stampin' Up!

 

Floral-frames-candy-treat-lullaby-3

Instructions:

So I'm sure you are thinking.. yep CUTENESS, but HOW do you make it!? You die cut the largest 2 sizes of Floral Framelits, score and fold them and nest them one inside the other!  I found this great tutorial by Sabine on her blog... it's in German so you can either use the google translate button or you can look at the photos and I'm sure it will make sense!  Cindee actually used instructions from another website, you can see Sarah's instructions here.
