Birthday Bash with Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop

Hello friends! Thank you for joining us for another one of our monthly blog hops with the Creative Circle Design Team, a small group of international Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! Our team leader, Liz Holloway, keeps us all organized and gives us challenges and themes each month, it’s a wonderful source of inspiration! I hope you click on all the names at the bottom of this list to keep hopping along!

First I’d like to welcome  two more demonstrators to our CCDT. First up is a great friend of Liz’s and she is located in Abbotsford, BC. Please welcome Penny Hanuszak!

 

Next up is a wonderfully talented lady named Juan Ambida! She lives in Australia and is super talented! So glad to welcome both Penny and Juan to our cozy little group!

Since our theme this month is “Birthday Bash”, I wanted to show one of my summer birthday cards that I have created for the stampers in my August clubs.

I had to hold it closed to take the picture. Can you tell what kind of card it is?


Well if you guessed a card in a box pop up card then you are right!


Some of my club members requested a special pop up card when we were together last month and I came up with this design using our beautiful new birthday memories designer series paper! The trick with this type of card is to carefully lay out the pop up pieces before adhering them to the insert piece, as they must fit within the card or it won’t fit inside an envelope. I just love giving these cards to my friends- they are always so surprised when it pops open!

Want to know how to make this card? There are dozens of directions out there, but I wanted to simplify the process.

  • Start with 1/2 piece of cardstock cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score the long side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″
  • turn and score the short side at 2 1/2″ from the top.
  • Trim the slots open at the 2-4-6-8 inch score lines to the score line.
  • Cut away the small tab on the top 1/2″ (made next to the 8″ score line) and reserve this for your inside tab for the pop up pieces.
  • If you want more inserts for more items to pop up, they will need to match (1/2″ x 2 1/2″)
  • use strong adhesive (I used our Tear and Tape) on the 1/2″ bottom tab.
  • Decorate sides with coordinating DSP.

If you have any questions please let me know, I might just try a video if there is enough interest! (I have been wanting to try videos for some time now).

I treasure your comments, it means the world to me (to leave a me a comment, scroll to the very bottom and click “leave a response”- your email will not be published!)

Guess what? I am getting VERY close to earning the next Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska! I have until September 30th to earn the remaining points. I have been working very hard since the new year started on October 1, 2016. Of course, most of you know I had to cancel lots of events with my dear mother’s battle with cancer up to her death last November. Then I switched jobs and am away from home 2 1/2 hour more each day, which is less time spent on my Stampin’ Up! business. But the good news is, my customers and downline have been so helpful, and I’m in the home stretch. I am getting ready to announce my big $1000 Workshop, stay tuned for all the details in tomorrow’s post. (Any size order is super helpful, as is a Paper Pumpkin subscription, joining my team, or hey- just buying my  handmade cards from me too). Hope you come back tomorrow for all the details!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoy our hop!

Creative Inking-Two Step Stamping Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to our July Blog Hop with a great group of 10 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! I’m sure you’ll enjoy all these wonderful samples of Two-Step Stamping, I have to say, it has become one of my favorite techniques since we launched our photopolymer stamps a few years ago. If you happened to stop by earlier today, thanks! If you just arrived from Colleen’s blog- thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy our offerings this month!

First up is a fun new stamp set from the catalog called “Fabulous Flamingo”, I just adore this set and love how perfectly this sentiment from “Eastern Beauty” completes this card (it was a new release bundle in May and I just can’t stop using it- I’m crazy about cursive fonts!!).  This flamingo is actually a 4 step stamp, with three colors and after the two step stamping, there are two more different steps. (It’s not hard at all, I promise- if I can do it, you can too!)

Next up is a card I featured at my Stamping Bingo last month. All the ladies loved getting their hands on this exclusive hostess stamp set called “Tranquil Tulips”. (this stamp set can be your free choice with an order of $150 or more as your “host rewards”… if you have a long wish list, I’d love to help you!) Of course, can you tell I had to keep using the greetings from Eastern Beauty stamp set? I love this little “hello” don’t you?

When I was trying to decide on the colors, I kept playing with the new In Colors, once I paired it with my two new favorites, it made this card a breeze- Lemon-Lime Twist and Fresh Fig with a Very Vanilla base… it really helped make the Designer Series Paper “pop” a little bit, don’t you think?

 

 

Here are the supplies used for the Flamingo Card: (if you click the image it will take you to my store and you can add it to your shopping cart):

No Rules! Stampin Friends July Blog Hop!

 

Hi everyone!
I’m super excited to be here today- I haven’t blogged in a while, between health issues and my schedule and a few curve balls along the way, I haven’t had much creative time lately and then, of all things- two hops on the same day! (hope you come back and visit me tonight when the other hop is published!) You’ve probably just arrived from Twila Davis’ blog- isn’t she just amazing? I love her projects! We have 9 demonstrators in the hop this month, be sure to scroll down to the list and click the name of the next person to see their fabulous creations.

This month our Stampin Friends group has an “Anything Goes” theme with No Rules! It’s kind of refreshing sometimes to have no rules, don’t you agree? So I decided to show off some new Christmas items I made with our brand new bundle from the Carols of Christmas!

 

First up, I knew I wanted to use our new embossing paste to make my evergreen trees look like they had snow on top of them… post-it notes to the rescue!

 

This created a defined space for me to put the paste on, just throw the post-it notes away when done. What do you think? Realistic, right?

Here is my finished Christmas Card- I used Emerald Envy, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake ink on the greeting, but the little deer is stamped in Soft Suede.

 

Here is a close up of just the snowy trees. It dries really fast!

For this hop, we also make a 3D item, so I decided to experiment to see what would coordinate with this card, tiny treat boxes were the perfect solution. I just ADORE the new mini boxwood wreaths, my first thought was to make earrings, but then I decided a box of candy was the perfect treat to go with this card.

 

You will definitely want to check everyone’s blogs out today, if you’re ready to continue on, just click Steph Jandrow’s name below, and you’ll continue on the hop!

Summer Fun with the Creative Circle Design Team!

 

 

Well Hello Friends! Thank you for joining us for our July edition of the Creative Circle Design Team! We wanted to share some Stampin’ Up! Summer Fun for you! I am so excited to see what these talented ladies have come up with this month, how about you? We are a small international group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, and we just love to showcase our newest products and hope to inspire you all!

 

This first card is a special birthday card I made for a friend, now that the daisy punch is back in stock, I wanted to start showing off so you would want to order it for yourself! This is a sweet and simple card making three different colored daisy flowers and using one piece of the new wood crate on the card front.

Next up- a yummy summer drink card! Do you love frappacino’s and other frothy drinks from Starbucks? Me too! I created this card for my recent team get together, the girls loved making this card.

 

Next up is a card I created featuring our new embossing paste! I wanted my team to have a chance to use this awesome new product, we used our silicone mat to add re-inker (Lemon-Lime Twist) and some dazzling delights (aka glitter) for added sparkle. This was card #2 for our team get together. *On a side note- the container appears to be larger- that is on purpose as Stampin’ Up! wanted us to have plenty of room to scoop this stuff out… it also settles somewhat…. also- most  important of all- this stuff dries SUPER FAST, so work quickly and wash off the mask and tools immediately afterwards (or it will harden).

Last, but not least is a card I created to showcase the new “At Home with You” bundle for our team get together. I created this card with a bright basket of summer flowers next to the front door- and can you tell the door opens?

 

It is really a fun new bundle, perfect for any holiday, new home owner, real estate agent, wedding, anniversary, and more!! Are you ready to go visit the talented Kate? She has something very special to share with us today!

 

 

Here’s the Complete Line-up: 

Thanks so very much for taking the time to visit my blog today! I love to read your comments, feel free to scroll down to the bottom where it says “Leave a response” and you can let me know which card you enjoyed the most? thanks!

We Create Blog Hop June!

 

 

 

Welcome to the June edition of the We Create Blog Hop- a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who hope to show you some ways you can “step-up” your projects with a few simple modifications.

First up is a simple card that my guests will be making at my Open House tomorrow night- I always like to have a little Make-and-Take featuring new products whenever I have a New Catalog Launch Party. This card features our New Very Vanilla Note Cards! Love them so much! This card also features a stamp set from my favorite new bundle- Wood Words. Love the Wood Grain Designer Series Paper Stack too (this little 6″x 6″ stack is a MUST HAVE- every piece is wood grain, and the front/back match each other! perfect for our little wood crates!!)

For my stepped up version of this card, I added the little rooster, a breeze to make with our awesome new dies! I used one piece of the wood crate and folded it over to make this card front. I used Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler inks.

What do you think? I love to hear from you- just scroll all the way to the bottom and leave me a comment, I really appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment, I treasure every single one.

Also, if you are interested in joining my 2017 Ribbon Share, there is still time, just scroll below to learn more!

Ribbon Shares are Here!

With the launch of the new 2017-18 Catalog on June 1st, 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).
  • 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

  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

  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.


Well, that’s it for today, thanks for visiting me twice today, it’s funny how the calendar works sometimes I have 2 Blog Hops on the same day.

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!!

Creative Inking- What Goes Around

Hello friends,

Welcome to the May Blog Hop of the Creative Inking Crew. We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from the US and Canada, and we bring you inspiration each month.

This month, our theme is “What Goes Around”, and I have decided to feature the cards from the new Eastern Palace Suite that Stampin’ Up! launched on May 1st for customers (demonstrators were able to pre-order it in April).  I advertised the special bundles at my stamp camp and to my customers last month and had a group jump at the chance to have this gorgeous bundle with FREE products as well! As a reward, for everyone who ordered this bundle from me by May 4th, I offered a special class on Wednesday night. Here are the cards we made and I’m throwing in some recent club cards I made so you can see that the possibilities are endless with this suite.

First up is a card featuring our new very vanilla note cards!

This card features our gorgeous Designer Series Paper (DSP) and right under the word “thank you” is one of the gorgeous new gold metallic stickers-yes, that’s right, I said stickers! They are so fun!

This card includes our fun new tassels, some gold foil specialty paper under the die-cut out shape, and more gold stickers! I love the new In-Colors included in this bundle, here on this card I’ve used Lemon Lime Twist with Fresh Fig.

This card was a “wow” card- with some “fussy cutting around the edges of the largest medallion gold sticker. This new color is called Tranquil Tide. A complimentary color to this suite is Dapper Denim from our returning In-Color collection.

Everyone loved making these cards, what do you think?

 

Let me also share with you two cards I featured at my clubs this month, this first one is my own design- featuring the new gorgeous In-Color Lemon Lime Twist! I LOVE it!!

 

This card was inspired by Patty Bennett- when I saw that she had created a sunflower card out of the Eastern Palace Suite, I wanted to see if any other demonstrators had done any sunflowers too. I found a simple card made by Julie D (the paper pixie) and I decided to CASE (copy and share everything) her design for my club members. They loved it and some of them even stepped it up and added some die cut words, and embellishments. (I wish I had thought to take photos of all of them- they were great!).

HERE’S MORE INFORMATION on the two bundles Stampin’ Up! released from the Eastern Palace suite for EARLY customer purchase – these offers are good only until May 31. Get these bundles now- before the products become available in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, (which begins June 1.) *Note that these items will not be offered as a bundle with free product after May 31st (everything will be available individually).


 

Don’t you just love the font? It’s gorgeous!

Here’s a FREE pdf to create three beautiful card ideas using the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle.
