A Stamper To Remember

Card Class – Wonderful Romance

Filed under: Projects — February 18, 2019 @ 2:21 pm

Card Class is tomorrow and my instructions sheets are ready to go.  To get your own free pdfs, just place an online order at my website.

Wonderful Romance, So Hoppy Together, Stampin' Up

I hope you have enjoyed the projects I have been sharing with the Stampin’ Up Floral Romance product suite, including the framed art from last time.  Stay tuned –  I  have even more to share.

Here’s an alternate Split Panel Card done in a portrait orientation.    I love how this technique shows off the beautiful Designer Series Paper.  There’s no set measurements for this technique – just freehand the cut with your paper trimmer (or make a template).  Then pop up the cardstock with Stampin’ dimensionals.

Wonderful Romance, Stampin' Up

I bet these new (FREE) products would work great for the layouts in my CardClass pdfs too!

Floral Romance Samplers

Filed under: Projects — February 13, 2019 @ 11:22 am

I have been going crazy this past week  – obsessed with making paper samplers and home decor framed art.  I’m featuring the Floral Romance Suite of products at my Card Class this month, so I though a sampler or 2 would be fun to make.  Well it turned into six!  I wanted to show them off in the frames, so excuse the reflections.

Floral Romance Sampler, Wonderful Romance, Stampin' Up!

My first one is a 12×12 shadowbox frame and the squares are 3×3.  All the rest are 9×9 frames.

I used the same layout for this one, but 2-1/2″ squares.

Floral Romance Sampler, Wonderful Romance, Stampin' Up

Here I went with a central 3-1/2″ square and added some butterflies.  The sentiment is from the Meant to Be stamp set.

Floral Romance Sampler, Wonderful Romance, Stampin' Up

Here I used a central 4″ square, made a wreath from the die cuts and added more butterflies.  This picture was CASED from a German demonstrator who posted on our demonstrator Facebook group.  We share lots of ideas – being a demonstrator is the best.  (And Sale-a-Bration is the best time to join – check it out here).

Floral Romance, Stampin Up, butterfly Beauty

Here I added some die cut butterflies cut from the free Sale-a-bration foil sheets (almost gone so get them soon).  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

Floral Romance, Stampin Up, Butterfly Beauty

This one was CASED from our demonstrator magazine, another great resource for ideas if you want to join the fun.

I left space for a wedding photograph, surrounded by die cut butterflies.  The sentiment is from the Forever Lovely stamp set.

Send a Friend a Card

Filed under: Projects — February 7, 2019 @ 10:47 am

Today is “Send a friend a card” day.  But isn’t every day is good day to create and send hand made cards?  It blesses both the giver and the recipient!

Here are the cards I worked on this morning. I have a dreadful cold, so this was a good activity this morning to keep my mind off myself.  I’m so blessed to work from home and have a flexible “to do” list each day.

I used the “Climbing Rose” stamp set and Rose Trellis Dies.   This set has some great sentiments, and the dies and stamps are gorgeous.  If you buy these as a bundle they are 10% off.

Today’s Tip:  Use Designer Series paper to add more varitation of color to your diecuts.  I used Wood Textures on the top right trellis card and All My Love on the bottom left.

I hope you can take a few minutes today to #makeacardsendacard by #stampinup

FYI:  The foil sheets that I used on the bottom left card are free during Sale-a-bration, but supplies are almost gone, so I would grab them soon.  Click on any of the thumbnails below to see the products.

And if you would like to work from home like I do, check out Join the Fun at my website.

Valentine’s Day Cards

Filed under: Projects — February 4, 2019 @ 7:59 am

I missed a few cards in my recent Valentine’s Day series (hop back to the previous posts).  These last few are made with the All My Love Suite of products by Stampin’ Up!  All of these cards feature Crumb Cake cardstock, a nice neutral to pair with reds and pinks like this bright Lovely Lipstick color.

Meant to Be, All my Love, Stampin' Up!, Valentine's Day Cards

Meant to Be, All my Love, Stampin' Up!, Valentine's Day Cards

The first 2 cards use the “Meant To Be” bundle of stamps and dies.  The heart dies are lovely and really are a must have for your collection.

The pile of cards below was made by my card class ladies for the Healing Hearts ministry run every year by our local Christian radio station, WCTL.  These cards will be donated to hospitals and nursing homes along with thousands of other handmade cards.  These are #simplestamping cards – just paper, ink and stamps.  We added a bit of ribbon to some.

Meant to Be, Valentine's Day cards, #simplestamping

And finally, I thought some cats and dogs might make fun Valentine’s Day cards.  Which do you like best?

Valentine's Day Cards, Stampin' Up!, Nine Lives, Happy Tales

Again, these are #simplestamping cards.   Both the Nine Lives and Happy Tales stamp sets have a matching punch for even more fun.

I hope you have enjoyed the ideas I have shared on my blog as much as I enjoyed making them.  Why not hop over to my website shop (click on any of the photos below).   I appreciate your business!

Or check out the demonstrator starter kit if your shopping list is long and you would like a discount!

Valentine’s Day Cards

Filed under: Projects — February 1, 2019 @ 7:10 am

I’m taking a break from my “All My Love” series to showcase a few other stamp sets and die bundles that are super for Valentine’s Day cards.  From the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, how about “Love you to Pieces“.  This bundle is awesome for all sorts of occasions, but has some stamps especially great for Valentine’s Day.  The new Lace embossing folder made a great background.  And both of the Stampin’ Up ribbons I used were very fun – lightweight and easy to tie.

Stampin Up, Love you to Pieces, Valentine's Day cards

Today’s Tip:  I pieced together the puzzle background in the first card.  But it would have been so much easier to use the Big Shot Embossing mats to emboss the puzzle.  Oh well, next time!

Next I moved to the Floral Frames bundle.  Again, this stamp set and dies are good for many occasions, but pretty in pink for Valentine’s Day.

Floral Frames, Stampin' Up, Valentine's Day cards

And finally, I moved back to the Occasions catalog and the “Well Said” Bundle.  This bundle is the most expensive that Stampin’ Up! carries but is well worth it with sentiment stamps and word dies for EVERY occasion so it’s a must have.  Use your host benefits to get it free or half price, or at least get a Sale-abration freebie with it.  Or better yet, get it at a great discount in your demonstrator starter kit.

Stampin' Up, Well Said, Valentine's Day cards

These cards are rather simple, but the foil sheets (Sale-a-bration freebie) that I used with the dies add just the right touch.

Any questions, shoot me an email or comment.  I’d love to hear from you.

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson

 

Meant To Be

Filed under: Projects — January 28, 2019 @ 8:36 am

I have had such fun with the “ALL MY LOVE” suite of products by Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up, Meant to Be, Valentine's Day cards

Today’s Tip:  There are a couple dies in the Be Mine framelits that are just stitches.  Don’t the stitched hearts make a cute and easy background?  I love this monochromatic look in Lovely Lipstick.

Meant To Be, Stampin Up, All my love, Valentine's Day card

I had fun piecing back in a couple of the hearts that I got by running this die through the Big Shot in multiple colors.

Have you ever embossed Designer Series Paper with the Subtle Embossing Folder?  What a fun texture it adds.

Today’s Tip:  Attach multipurpose adhesive sheets to your cardstock before cutting out the heart border.  You will be very happy to have it self-adhesive and not to mess with glue on those fine pieces.  (I know from experience)!

Meant to Be, Stampin' Up!, Valentine's Day cards

I love how simple, but striking this card turned out.  The foil hearts and Tufted Embossing folder are just the thing.

I hope this series gave you lots of fun ideas.  More previously and to come!  Remember to visit my online shop  – make any purchase to get my pdf instruction sheets for this month.

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson
