A Stamper To Remember

Craft Retreat and Daisy Punch

Filed under: Projects — August 18, 2017 @ 8:44 am

I’m heading out today for a weekend craft retreat.  It’s fun to get together with friends, not have to cook, and have time just for creative fun!  I should have lots more to share next week.

Here’s another Daisy Punch card that I made.  Aren’t these fun colors?  I wasn’t sure about the new In Color Lemon-Lime Twist at first, but I have been won over.

Today’s tip:

For the best detail with the new Dynamic embossing folders, spritz lightly with water, then run through from both directions.  You only need one cutting pad, because the folders are extra thick.

Get product info by clicking on the thumbnail photos below.  And check out previous posts for lots more Daisy ideas.

Happy crafting,

AND….The Daisy Punch is back on the Low Inventory List.  Which means if you are one of the few that doesn’t have it yet, now would be a good time to pick it up.

Here is another Daisy project.  My black-eyed susans are in full bloom right now, so this is an appropriate card for today.  And you, my readers and customers, brighten my day!

Today’s Tip:

Stamp the daisy onto Crushed Curry Cardstock in Early Espresso ink and punch.  Cut in half and layer to make one flower.  Add an Early Espresso punched circle.

While the pre-release of Carols of Christmas bundle was calling my name, I realized that there exist a bunch of forgotten cards that I made for my Delightful Daisy Suite series that are feeling rather left out of my blog.

But first, a commercial break – check out this Stampin’ Up! special for Paper Pumpkin.  I love taking my Paper Pumpkin with me when I travel.  I can’t wait to get the kit for my favorite season –  I’m envious that new subscribers can get it for half price!


Back to Daisy Delight:  My first card just uses the stamped sentiment.   Strips of In Color cardstock are aligned in an interesting pattern.

IMG_0570craftdoc daisy delight

For the second card, I used the Tranquil Tulip set to make the background, Soft Sayings for the sentiments and a circle of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.

For the third card I added a jar from the Jar of Love stamp set and matching framelit dies.   Sharing Sweet Thoughts, the Ronald McDonald house set for this year, would also be great for a Daisy in a jar.

Today’s Tip:

See the shiny center on the daisy?  Just use the Fine tip Glue Pen.

Have you ever taken a card completely apart and put it together again?  I wasn’t sure I liked how most of the ornaments from this Carols of Christmas card were covered by the large sentiment.

-Cut apart your sentiment for an entirely different look!

I wish I had more time to play with this delightful bundle that has been pre-released by Stampin’ Up this month.  Here is one easy but glamorous card I have completed, backing the die cut panel with Glimmer Paper.

Today’s Tip:

-Mount the top panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add some space between the trees and the glimmer paper.  Add the Circle with Dimensionals too.  How could we live without Stampin’ Dimensionals!  Did you know they now come Mini too?

Carols of Christmas for Summer Cards

Filed under: Projects — August 2, 2017 @ 9:29 am

The Stampin’ Up! special for August is a pre-release of the Carols of Christmas Bundle.  I wanted to show how to use these holiday products for a summer card, so I paired it with the Colorful Seasons bundle from the Annual Catalog.

I made two versions of this card.  The first one with a Color Theory DSP background and the second with a simple background of Sahara Sand Cardstock, adding the deer and drink diecuts.

Today’s Tips:

*You can purchase each of the stamp sets and die sets separately, but together they are bundled at 10% off.  Click on the photos below for product details.

*The Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are a dream for adhering the small diecuts!

Carols of Christmas

I am excited to share with you an early release from the Holiday Catalog.

Thanks Stampin’ Up for giving us this beautiful bundle to play with in August! And for gifting so many of the new products to me on the Incentive Trip to Thailand so I can share pictures and projects with my readers.

The Carols of Christmas stamp set echos favorite Christmas carols and pairs beautifully with this Designer Series Paper (available in September).  You can purchase the stamps and dies separately or together as a bundle at 10% savings.

I think you will love the versatility of the Card Front Builder Thinlit Dies. You get a fun assortment of dies to make card borders as well as dies for Christmas shapes.

I have had a chance to play already and love this new bundle.  How do you like this fun fold latch card?  The instruction sheet is free if you order the bundle from my website shop.

Isn’t the little deer sweet?  Make sure you purchase some Mini Dimensionals to add him to your projects.  And I can see using the tree dies all year long.

Thank you for supporting my home business.  I hope you will enjoy these fun products as much as I do.  And if you want to get the rest of the Merry Little Christmas Suite EARLY, check out the starter kit and Join the Fun!

Today’s Tip – if you start building the starter kit, there should be a category for the Holiday Catalog and you can view all the new products.

Happy Crafting,

Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog

Filed under: Projects — July 28, 2017 @ 8:56 am

I’m so excited to share with you another new suite of products from the Holiday Catalog.  Painted Autumn gives us a beautiful stamp set (Painted Harvest) a Leaf Punch and some gorgeous hand painted Designer Series Paper.  You can see a few easy projects I have made with this suite.

craftdoc Painted Harvest Stampin Up

Painted Harvest reminds me of the popular Tranquil Tulip stamp set.  You don’t have to stamp off or use different ink colors to get images with dimension. I think this just might be your favorite new stamp set too!

Some other autumn products I was given at the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip are included in the photo.  The Pick a Pumpkin stamp set is a whimsical set bundled with some fun Thinlits Dies.  And the black Crochet Trim is really beautiful.  I can’t wait to play more with all the new fall products.

I’m a little worried that the new punches in this catalog will sell out before the catalog goes live – just like the Daisy Punch did.  The best way to be sure you get them in time for your fall projects is to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  There is no obligation, but you get to order everything a month early!  And there is a special Christmas in July gift valued at $72 that you will get automatically when you sign up by the 31st.  It’s quick and easy at my website.  Check out the details here.
