Kinda Eclectic Butterfly

August 30th, 2014 by craftdoc

Here’s a quick card with Kinda Eclectic  – easy to make multiples.

Today’s Tip:

I used a tiny strip of glimmer paper to add sparkle to the butterfly.


Stampin’ Up! Framelits

August 28th, 2014 by craftdoc

There are lots of new Framelit Dies and matching stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog that went live today at my website store.

Today’s tips:

-Check the Weekly Deals – there is often a framelit set on sale.  This week is Circles.

-For storage – I use a Walmart tote and magnet sheets from the hardware store (dryer vent covers).  See photo below.



Kinda Eclectic Journal

August 27th, 2014 by craftdoc

I love the new little journals in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  They are perfect for gifts, lists, prayer journals ….  Here I used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set to embellish along with Baker’s Twine.

Today’s Tips:

- The new Kraft paper matches the journal perfectly (butterfly).

-Use the new Transfer Adhesive Sheets to attach the butterfly so it won’t be knocked off in your purse.

-The notes stamp is from an old Paper Pumpkin kit.  You can still get Paper Pumpkin for half price through Sept 10 using the promo code HALFOFF2 at

-Tomorrow (Aug 28th) is the last day of the Short and Sweet Promotion ($50 in free product).  I’d love to have you check out this great deal at my website.


Butterfly Punch

August 25th, 2014 by craftdoc

One of the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals ending today is the Butterfly Punch.  My current hostess code is NW93FAHR.

Here I took a favorite layout with the Pleasant Poppies stamp and updated it with a new stamp set (Kinda Eclectic) and a new color (Tangerine Twist).

Today’s Tips:

-Use the Color Coach for a fun color combo.  Here I used both suggestions for Tangerine Twist – Sahara Sand with Island Indigo and So Saffron with Garden Green.


For All Things

August 23rd, 2014 by craftdoc

The new Holiday Catalog begins soon and here is a favorite new stamp set – For All Things.   You can chose this set in your kit (and anything else up to $150) for just $99 – free shipping too!  This demonstrator kit special is Short and Sweet – ending Aug 29.  Check out the “Join the Fun” tab on my website.

Today’s Tips:

-CASE – Copy and Share Everything – this card is right from our bi-monthly demonstrator magazine – Just one of the many perks.

-To make the speckles, just dip a wet aquapainter in ink (use the lid of your inkpad) and flick it with your finger.

-The coordinating Washi Tape and gold buttons are also new.  There is some pretty new DSP as well.  If you didn’t get a holiday catalog, let me know.


Stampin’ Up! – Short & Sweet

August 22nd, 2014 by craftdoc

Stampin’ Up! has a promotion for the starter kit for just ONE WEEK.  Until August 29th you can get $150 in product of your choice (including the new Holiday Catalog) for just $99.  Free shipping too!  It’s a great deal – check it out at my website at JOIN THE FUN  

Today’s Tips:

-You can stamp on our Cellophane Bags with our StaZon White Ink.  Here they used the Tiny Triangles Embossing folder as the stamp.


Coaster Board Frame

August 21st, 2014 by craftdoc

Two of the Weekly Deals are Square Framelits and Vanilla Coaster Board.  The Coaster Board is easy to cut with the Big Shot and fun to stamp on (Art of Life stamp set).  I also used the Hostess set – Life’s Adventure and Coastal Cabana Cardstock and Blendabilities.

Today’s Tips:

- It’s easy to make a frame with the square framelits.  Here I skipped one size.  For a thinner frame, use adjacent squares.  To avoid the imprint on the coaster board, just use the back of the frame.  I kinda like it.

- Punch the sentiment out with the word window punch to separate it from the image.


Embossing Folders

August 19th, 2014 by craftdoc

Embossing folders are one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! tools.   These cards are made with the Lovely Lace folder, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss Cardstock and inks.   Be sure to get the Honeycomb folder from the Weekly Deals at my online store.

Today’s Tips:

-To get this dimensional look, simply rub your inkpad lightly over the same color embossed cardstock.
