Stampin’ Up! Host Sets

Filed under: Projects — February 24, 2017 @ 6:52 am

We sometimes forget to showcase ideas for the host sets.  These sets are only available when your order (or party) reaches $150, and are an economical use of your Stampin’ Rewards.  And, don’t forget – you also get Sale-A-Bration freebies for each $50 you order yourself and extra Rewards if the order/party is over $250.  I can even give you a host code if your friends and family would like to order online and add to your total.

These are the samples I made as a Display Stamper for the Atlanta OnStage meeting last November with the Iconic Occasions host set from the Occasions Catalog.  If you want to check out information about becoming a demonstrator, and extras during Sale-A-Bration,  look here.

Today’s Tips:

The Ombre ink pads give a fun shading effect on these cards.  It is a lot different than using our regular pads – they are not as juicy and you have to tap HARD to get inked well, but the results are cool.

Today’s Tips:

I added some Gold to the mix today!  I made a shaker card with the framelit and added some Stampin’ Up! Gold Foil for the balloons.  Don’t forget to get some foam strips and sequins to make your shaker cards.  I used the brights sequins, but we also have metallic.

The second card uses some Gold Glimmer Paper and some Gold Embossing.  Plus the Sale-A-Bration freebie Metallic Ribbon, which by the way is very soft and lovely to use.  I frayed the ends a bit.

Today’s Tips:

This is the card we made at the last Stampin’ Up! OnStage meeting – one of the perks of being a demonstrator.  See how to join my team here.

The embellishment charms are great on the narrow ribbon.  And the die cut panel can work either flat, or folded into a popup card.  See tomorrow’s post for a shaker card.

Today’s Tips:

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to lift up the top panel of the first card.  The ribbon will sit more nicely as well. The left balloon is also popped up with a Dimensional.

Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment, so you don’t get it crooked like I did on the second card!  Stamp in Whisper White or Versamark ink and emboss with White embossing powder.  Add strips of Washi Tape and Designer Series Paper.  Don’t forget to add a cute charm from the Party Animal Embellishments.

Today’s Tips:

Get 12 panels for this card from 1 sheet of 12×12 Designer Series Paper!  First cut your sheet into (6) 4×6″ pieces.  Then cut each piece diagonally at 2 inches from each end.  If the paper is directional, you can either flip it over or use a different layout as I did here.

There are several good ways to adhere the colored diecut panels behind the balloon.  The Stampin’ Up! fine tip glue pen, sponging on some Stampin’ Up! liquid glue or running some strips of Stampin’ Up! Tear & Tape behind the cardstock before die-cutting.

Use SNAIL adhesive to adhere the ribbon and Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the balloons to the card.

Today’s tips:

I sponged ink around the cloud die cut at the bottom of the first card and then adhered it to the second card.

Stampin’ Dimensionals are the secret to my balloon cards.  Use them behind the hot air balloons and behind the clouds.
