CCDT New Catalog Favorites!

 

Hello and welcome to our June Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop!

This month I want to share with you some swap cards I created and mailed out last month to other demonstrators for an “organized swap”. Now that everyone has received their swaps, we are able to show off what we made. Plus I want to share my favorite swap card I received.

 

First up is this beautiful card- featuring new In Colors, stamps, and card stock! Don’t you just love the font from this set? Me too!  I cased this card from my favorite swap card that I received from Jenn. Love the new Lemon-Lime Twist, it’s my favorite new In-Color!

 

This is a card I came up with to feature at my June clubs, I wanted to showcase the daisy delight bundle, but with the punch on backorder I decided to just use the little flowers that are in the stamp set- aren’t they sweet? And the new Tranquil Tide ink and ribbon just make this card pop, don’t you think? The base is Soft Saffron, as I thought the DSP was more muted.

.

 

Living in Upstate NY, I have a true fondness for anything Adirondack, and these new dies to create an Adirondack chair are no exception. This is a card I created for one of the swaps I participated in last month. I made this card in all 5 In Colors using the new Designer Series Paper stack, what do you think? This is Fresh Fig paired with Lemon-Lime Twist. I love this combo, don’t you?

.

 

This is a card I created for a swap, I’m very happy with how this one came out. It is a simple “Z-Fold” card, and features the new Birthday Memories Suite. I fell in love with this bundle, and suite, when I attended OnStage in April. I was lucky to be able to pre-order this and feature it for this swap. It was simple to cut the word “birthday” to fit on two lines. I think this little girl looks so vintage, like the Campbell Soup girl… this card features new Designer Series Paper, dies, and ribbon. *This is one of the Ribbons that I am offering in my 2017 Ribbon Shares- I have a few spots left- let me know if you’re interested. I’m posting the info at the bottom of this post.

.

here is another view for you to see the Z-fold…

Here is another image from the Birthday Memories suite- this card I actually made as a Make-and-Take at OnStage, just love this little fox!

 

 

Last, but not least, is my favorite new Hostess Stamp Set- called Tranquil Tulips. This is a two-step stamp set that is just gorgeous. I also featured on of our new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder- Starburst- to give the bottom layer some texture and interest. What do you think?

 

I would love to hear from you- what card do you like the most? Also- don’t forget tomorrow night, June 2nd is my New Catalog Launch Party and Open House! I have In-Color Bookmarks, a sweet little notecard, a new catalog Survival Kit, snacks, lots of goodies to look at, displays, sign-ups and prizes! Let me know if you plan to attend, I would hate it if I didn’t have enough prepped for you! thanks!!

Ribbon Shares are Here!

With the launch of the new 2017-18 Catalog, I have been working on a new Ribbon Share deal for you. It was a little more difficult this year as we have over 50 new ribbons in the new catalog and they are absolutely gorgeous! It was a hard decision to make, but I am finally ready to promote my 2017 Ribbon Shares!

Here are the details of my 2017 Ribbon Share: 

  • $50 per person for each ribbon share, plus shipping (or you can pick up at my house in Glenville, NY).
  • You will receive 2 yards each (consecutive cuts) from 10 new ribbon types, with 34 colors/styles for a grand total of 68 yards of new Ribbon!
  • Payment is due in Full by June 3rd, and will work in groups of 5 people per share (all the ribbons I have selected are in 10 yard rolls, so I need 5 people to make up a “share”). If I don’t have enough to complete a share, I will go in the order that I received payment to fulfill the request.
  • I will order all the ribbons on June 3rd and they should arrive by June 13th if nothing goes on back-order. I will need a few days to cut/wrap and prepare the ribbons for you. My goal is to have it ready by June 17th (so I can bring them with me to the BOGO sale, if all goes well).

Here’s what you will be getting 2 yards each of the following ribbons/colors:

  1. 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in 5 colors: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide
  2. 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding in 4 colors: Berry Burst, Emerald Envy, Night of Navy, and Peekaboo Peach
  3. 1/4″ Stiched Edge Ribbon in 4 colors: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry
  4. 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in 3 colors: Crumb cake, Soft Sky, and Whisper White
  5. 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon in 3 colors: Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Lemon-Lime Twist
  6. 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon in 4 colors: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Powder Pink
  7. 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon in 3 colors: Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive
  8. 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in 5 colors: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum
  9. Mini Sequin Trim in Basic Black
  10. 3/8″ Metallic-Edged Ribbon in Gold and Silver

*I am using hostess benefits to throw in the Basic Black Mini Sequin Trim and the Silver and Gold Metallic-Edged Ribbon as additional ribbons for you.

**If you were to purchase all of these 34 rolls of ribbon yourself, it would be over $300 to purchase these with tax and shipping.

So here’s how to get your Ribbon Share:
  1. Email me that you want to buy a share at Lstreifert@nycap.rr.com
  2. Arrange payment: I accept cash, check and credit card or I can invoice you through PayPal.
  3. I will confirm receipt of payment and will let you know the status of the Ribbon Shares. I need to sell shares in groups of 5.

 

Last but not least- During the month of June, for parties totaling over $350 hosts receive an ADDITIONAL $35!! This is on top of the regular Stampin’ Rewards hosts receive. New catalog AND more free product – that is a win-win. Parties can be online, Facebook, or in-home. Contact me to schedule one today!

Please note that the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog is Live NOW! But Online Ordering will not be available until Noon Mountain Time (that is 2 pm Eastern Time for my local peeps).

Stampin Friends May Blog Hop

 

Hello Stampin Friends!

Welcome to our May Blog Hop- our theme this month is Flowers or Sympathy cards… I’m sure you will receive lots of inspiration from all of the talented stampers!

If you came to me from Raquelle’s blog- welcome! Isn’t she fabulous? Love her creations! Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Lori Mueller, our guest hopper this month! (we are in another hop together on the 20th of each month, you will love Lori’s projects, she is very inspiring!)

 

This is a card I created to incorporate both elements from this month’s theme, flowers and sympathy. Sadly, I’ve need far too many sympathy cards in the past few weeks and I depleted my stock in my own card rack. So I made up a bunch of these.

This card features the new Daisy Delight punch, stamp set (yes- it’s a bundle!) and the gorgeous Designer Series Paper. I used the greeting from Heartfelt Sympathy and used the smallest flower punch from the Tree builder punch to make the little yellow flowers (daffodil delight card stock) and then the small white centers are from the small hole punch.

Here it is without a sentiment so you can see the gorgeous DSP.


I totally ran out of time to make a new 3D project… my apologies. I thought I would share the two 3D projects I featured for my last WTGD (Way to Go Day) for my top 4 ladies on my team. This is a new quarterly rewards program I have started for this Stampin’ Up! year, the first one was in January after the first quarter was over. The second one was in April and featured these projects featured here, and we will have two more this year. Here is the original Blog Hop: http://wp.me/p3eRQX-1Y9

What do you think?

Well thank you so much for visiting me today, are you ready to go half to the next stamper?

Creative Inking- Thankfulness Blog Hop

creative hop

 

Hello Again,

I was in two blog hops that happened to fall on the same day, today! And our theme here with the Creative Inking crew is also Thankfulness… it is such a great theme, and I am full of thankfulness- for my loving family, the doctors and nurses and medical staff who have helped us with my sweet mother’s battle with cancer and my sister-in-law’s battle with Crohn’s disease. The past two months have been a whirlwind of emotions and change for our family, but through it all our faith is sustained. I have needed a lot of cards to express my thanks, if you saw my post this morning, I used my beloved owl punch to create a card and little house. Now tonight, I’m featuring two simple fall cards that you could customize for any occasion!

Today’s card is for the Community Hospice staff who have given my mother such excellent care, just wanted to create something to tell them how much they are appreciated. I hope my card inspires you- is there someone you’d like to thank? I’d love to help you create a special, individualized card of appreciation.

I was so very happy that the Vintage Leaves stamp set from last year’s Holiday catalog carried over to our new 2016-17 Annual Catalog. These leaves are so versatile and there are thousands of ideas on Pinterest with this set. The coordinating Leaflets Framelits dies make cutting a piece of cake with the big shot. (List of supplies is below).  I love this color palette: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Garden Green. (I water-colored the die cut leaves to give them more texture and definition and so they would “pop”).

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
This technique is pretty simple, just water color (I used our Aqua Painters) the same color ink that you used to stamp the image. It fills in nicely on the leaves. Be careful to not “over-saturate” the image as this is our very vanilla cardstock- just go over once, or the paper will “pill”. For this card I added a mason jar from “Jars of Love” bundle, I have been noticing lots of different colored canning jars out there. What do you think of this version?

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!

Don’t worry about going outside the lines, you’re going to cut them out anyway. Isn’t coloring relaxing?

Creative Circle Design Team Pop-Up Card… October 2016

cclogo

 

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for joining our blog hop today! I’m so excited about our newest Designer to join our team- the uber talented Michelle Suit! You are going to love her awesome punch art and Disney creations I’m sure. Today on the blog hop, we are showcasing the very fun Pop-Up Card! It has taken the paper crafting world and Pinterest by storm, and our amazing leader, Liz Holloway, came up with a Silhouette file and sent it to us to create our own versions of a Pop-Up Card! I can’t wait to see what everyone came up with! I decided to use all  new products from the 2016 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ Up! (if you don’t have a demonstrator and need a catalog, let me know- I’d love to mail you one!)

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Here is the outside of my card.. does it look spooky?

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Here is the view of the card as I took off the belly band, you can see the folded insert- it is going to POP-Up…

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

It’s hard to get a full view of the card as it is sooooo big when it is open….

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Close up of the right side.

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

I stamped all the images in Versamark ink, then used black embossing powder and my handy dandy heat tool to emboss all the images. It made coloring, sponging and shading so much easier!

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

I used Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky inks to sponge and color in the images and backgrounds (to match the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper).

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

Did you know if you want a “softer look”, you can just put some ink from our awesome Stampin’ Markers directly onto a clear block, then pull the color off with our blender pens and you can create a softer, lighter tone while coloring. I love that you can accomplish great shading with our markers and inks and blender pens!

img_7610

I thought the whisper white paper was too stark, and sponged smokey slate ink directly on my 2 1/2″ squares to give them some spooky effects.

 

img_7603

This is what my piece of 12″ x 12″ basic black card stock looked like after I cut it on the Silhouette Cameo machine with Liz’s file.

img_7604

Decided to use the specialty piece as my card base, can you see the silver embossing on the spider web? It’s amazing! (cut it 4 1/4″ x 11″)

img_7605

I traced the pop-up portion directly onto my grid paper, cut it out to use as a stencil, then shaved 1/8″ off all 5 sides for my two inserts.

 

img_7606

Our fantastic Tear-n-Tape is the perfect choice to assemble this card, and ensure nothing comes off (I’m sure this card is going to get opened a hundred times)… just strategically place the tear-n-tape on the non-moving parts. (the two pieces that look like arrows need NO adhesive, or the card won’t open).

img_7607

Assembling the card…

img_7608

The four panel pop-up card insert gets strategically placed and I used more tear-n-tape to adhere them to the pop-up card base. Liz’s video makes this so easy, sorry my photo doesn’t show this step very clearly.

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

So there it is, my first Pop-Up Card, what do you think?? I treasure your comments, and can’t wait to hear what you think of my Halloween Pop-Up Card! (Comment field is all the way at the bottom of this post).

Ready to go hop over to see what Michelle has created for us? I’m so excited too! Click the image below:   http://www.suitablystamped.com/2016/10/creative-circle-design-team-october.html

Thank you all for visiting my blog today, thank you for your kind words and prayers for my family, we’ve certainly been challenged these past two months… we appreciate all the love and prayers. My sweet mother is teaching me so many lessons about courage and faith. Her battle with cancer is exhausting her, and we are struggling with her suffering. The fundraiser that I started for my dear sister-in-law, Kathy Streifert, has just reached the half-way point. Kathy has had a 22 year battle with Crohn’s disease, and is out of work indefinitely. As a waitress in a local restaurant with no sick days, or paid time off, and astronomical hospital bills and deductibles, I started the “Go Fund Me” campaign. You can read about it, and/or donate here, thank you!

Creative Inking Spooky Fun!

creative hop

Hi there friends,

Life has sure thrown my family and I some major curve balls… It has been an emotional roller coaster and to think one month ago today my mother went to the hospital because she was feeling nauseous and had back pain. It is scary to realize that she is filled with cancer. Her hospital bed arrived yesterday, and we are so thankful that her nursing services, home health aide and other hospice services have begun. Then, with my sister-in-law’s recent hospitalization with a severe Crohn’s flair-up, I have not had much energy or time for stamping. Thank you for those who have contacted me and are keeping in touch. We appreciate your kind words, prayers and sweet gestures. So, although I haven’t created recently, I didn’t want to miss another blog hop with these wonderful ladies, and I remembered my swap card I made for a recent swap by mail which fit the theme “Spooky Fun”! I hope you enjoy my card.

 

 

 

I had fun watercoloring our shimmer white paper with old olive reinker on the bottom, and smoky slate on the top of the piece. Then I stamped the haunted house from “Halloween Scares”  in memento black ink when it was bone dry. I colored in the windows and doors with a Stampin’ Marker.

 

I also used a scrap of the Shimmer white for my vampire and “headstone” with the greeting from the stamp set “Suite Seasons”. I love how the elegant eggplant is so deep and rich, and goes well with the pumpkin pie, old olive and delightful dijon markers to color in each word on the stamp. The new cookie cutter punch made this a breeze to pop out.

 

You can see that I added a witch and some ghosts, this time I used the stamp set “Spooky Fun” to pull in the other elements.

 

You can’t forget to decorate the inside- I made a mummy (From “Cookie Cutter Halloween”) and added bats and the saying from “Spooky Fun” .

 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today- if you need to see the supplies I used, scroll all the way to the bottom of this post.

 

Also, I am organizing a fund raiser for my sister-in-law Kathy, you can read more about it here: https://www.gofundme.com/kathystreifert

Card Making at the Senior Center & Blog Candy Give Away!


Good morning stamping friends! I hope you have had a great week! Do you have fun plans for the weekend? Tomorrow we will be traveling to Syracuse to celebrate Mother’s Day with my family- looking forward to it, we have a lovely brunch at a restaurant called Justin’s Tuscan Grill and then hopefully if the weather cooperates we will head to a local park to visit and hang out together! I don’t want to show you my Mother’s Day cards/projects yet- so be sure to come back on Monday to see my creations.

Today I want to share with you four cards that I did last week at my monthly card class at a local senior center. Shout out to my friend and downline Brigid, she volunteers to come each month and help me with this class. Thanks so much Brigid!

This sweet card is one of two projects you can make from your March 2016 paper pumpkin kit! This kit made four cards of this size, and four gift card holders simply adorable!

 

Because I love my paper pumpkin kit so much, and I’d love to put one in your hands, because I have this prepaid gift card, I am issuing a blog candy challenge, leave me a comment about why you want a kit (what you would use it for, who you might create with, any comment about these fun kits). Be sure to leave a comment on this thread here on my blog, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a spot where you can leave a comment. Be sure to leave a comment by Tuesday, May 10 at 5 PM. I will draw one winner using a random number generator, and I will contact the winner between 8 and 9 PM to redeem this kit I will need your contact info.

This card showcases the free stamp set Stampin’ Up! gifted to us in our April 2016 paper pumpkin kit. The stamp set is called “All About Everything” and it is just gorgeous. I came up with this flower pot design to showcase a flat and simple card. What do you think? Those outgoing in colors just really pop, I used Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, blackberry bliss, and hello honey. Did you stock up on these colors before they retire?

This simple card showcases three products that are carrying over to the next catalog, so glad the kit called water color wishes is carrying over, also happy about the botanical blooms set, and timeless textures from the Occasions catalog!!

This fun card is perfect for that special guy, unfortunately this stamp set called “going global” is retiring, if you want this set, you must order it by May 31!!

Here are a couple variations of this card with other sentiments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!! I hope you have a wonderful day, don’t forget to leave me a comment if you want to be entered to win one free paper pumpkin kit! (This contest is open to everyone, my downline, customers, other demonstrators, and friends!)
