This card is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from Pinterest by a stamper named Heidi- thanks so much for the inspiration! I always let my stampers change the greetings, if they want, this card would be perfect for someone going off to college, or a birthday, get well, thinking of you, and many more occasions!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have an awesome day!

Textured Impression Embossing Folder- a Stampin’ Up! Video

GratefulTheresYouCard

Hi There Stamping Friends,

Don’t you just love the Big Shot? And the quick way you can add texture with our Textured Impression Embossing Folders? I do, card making is a snap with these handy little guys.

This card was made by another demonstrator, Jenn B, and I just LOVE it! She used Chalk Talk & Flower Shop stamp sets as well as the words from By The Tide, a flourish from Flowering Flourishes and the embossing folder Beautifully Baroque. Also a Bitty Banners Die, a couple of dies from Apothecary Accents and the Decorative Label punch. The pink flower in the center of the paper flower is a flower made using the Simply Pressed Clay with the Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay mold.

Want to see how to emboss with the Big Shot? Here is a new video, just released today by Stampin’ Up! I love Brandi’s videos, this one is only 3 minutes long, but full of great ideas!

 

Happy Stamping and Crafting! Let me know if you’d like to order anything, I am putting in a big order tomorrow night!

Magnet Platform! Making die cutting so easy!!

miss u

I just love Brandi Barnard’s videos! She does such a great job! She is one of the talented staff at the Stampin’ Up!’s home office in Salt Lake City, Utah!

I do want to give you a couple words of caution about the new Magnet Platform:
The platform produces a magnetic field—like all magnetic fields, it may interfere with pacemakers, magnetic strips on credit cards, and cell phones if they are too close to the platform. Also, do not store or use the platform near a computer (laptop or iPad either!)

So hopefully you have a little corner in your craft space to store this handy item and it will make your big shotting so much easier! I love mine!!

framelit

All three of these projects were made quickly and easily using the magnet platform with their respective framelit (the new Chalk Talk Bundle was one of my first selections from the new Annual Catalog)!

The magnet platform is item #130658 and retails for $39.95
