Painter’s Palette Shaker Card

June 27th, 2016 by craftdoc

Today I’m going to share a few more details about one of the cards I posted June 1 for the Display Maker entry.  By the way, I did get chosen – yay!  In October I will get some of the products from next year’s Occasions catalog to make my samples for the November Stampin’ Up! On Stage meeting.

I made some shaker cards with the Painter’s Palette stamp set and Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.  These are so much easier now that we have the Foam Adhesive Strips!  Add a piece of Window Sheet, the Sprinkles Punch and the Square Layering Framelits and you are good to go.

Today’s Tips:

Use the embossing buddy to cut down on static cling and remove some of the sticky from the inside of the foam.

June 24th, 2016 by craftdoc

And here is the other card I made for class.  We used the same colors as the Affectionately Yours Suite, but instead used the Picture Perfect stamp set.  The instructions below are for all the class cards.

Pun Intended

June 13th, 2016 by craftdoc

The mailman was coming and I needed a quick birthday card – the Pun Intended stamp set was just the thing.  A friend had given me a stack of old negatives, so that made a perfect border along with a piece from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.  You could make a bunch of these in no time and have a big stash of cards ready to go.  #imbringingbirthdaysback #craftdoc #stampinup #punintended

Sitting Here

June 6th, 2016 by craftdoc

Today is my 35th Wedding Anniversary!  To make my card, I used the popular Number of Years stamp set and matching framelits.  And I had to play with the new Sitting Here stamp set.

IMG_4503cr

Today’s Tip:

-Sitting Here is a photopolymer stamp set, so it is easy to curve the sentiment stamp to match the curve of the swing!  The Happy Anniversary stamp is from the Timeless Love stamp set.

OnStage Display Stamper

June 1st, 2016 by craftdoc

I’m applying again for OnStage Display Stamper.  I hope this will be my chance to earn this honor.  I also hope you enjoy my projects and the new products from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog!

3D Pineapple Baker’s Box with Copper Embossed Pearl

IMG_4489cr

Today’s Tips:  The Pineapple stamp was stamped twice in Emerald Envy and one partly cut out and layered to add dimension to the leaves.  The bottom of the pineapple and the pearl were heat embossed in copper and layered onto the Emerald one.   Some Washi Tape, DSP and new ribbon say “yum”.

Butterfly Frame

IMG_4490cr

This simple frame (from a past Paper Pumpkin kit) showcases the Affectionately Yours DSP and the Layering Love and Papillon Potpourri stamp sets.  Today’s Tip:  The punched butterflies are attached with glue dots to the outside of the frame to give dimension.  This stamp set is great for scrapbooking as well as quick gifts and cards.

Work of Art Scrapbook Page

IMG_4492cr

The new Painter’s Palette stamp set and Layering Squares Framelits Dies are great for scrapbooking.  I also used the Layered Letters Alphabet for the title.  Today’s Tip:  To get only the words “work of art” and “genious”, cover the other words with tape before inking.  Then remove the tape before stamping.   This technique is called omitting.  The DSP is from the neutral stack and Washi tape is Playful Palette.

Playful Palette Shaker Card

IMG_4493cr

And of course I had to make a shaker card with the same products, just adding a piece of window sheet and confetti from the new Sprinkles Punch.  Today’s Tips: Shaker cards are a breeze with the new Foam Adhesive Strips.  Rub your embossing buddy around the inside of your piece so the confetti doesn’t stick to the strips and window sheet.

Father’s Day Envelope Tux Card

Father's Day envelope card

Father’s Day is coming up soon!  The Crazy about You stamp set has the perfect sentiments for all occasions along with the leaf and a couple flowers.  Today’s Tips:  Make a simple Basic Black envelope using the envelope punch board to fit a 8-1/2 x 3-1/2 card.  Cut off the end flap and the bits that hang over.  Draw a pencil line at the score lines using a ruler and finish the scoring with your personal trimmer since this is an oversized envelope.  Add a bow tie with the Bow Builder Punch and Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper.

Welcome to Paradise Card

IMG_4498cr

Today’s Tips:  When I saw the Pineapple stamp in Pop of Paradise I thought “Welcome” but it did not have such a stamp.  I found “Welcome to the World” in Happy Happenings and omitted the extra words by inking with tape over them and then removing the tape before stamping.  I stamped the pineapples in stamped off Emerald Envy to add to the Pop of Pink DSP.  Doesn’t the flamingo look great stamped in Melon Mambo to match this suite of products?  Some thick Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine and Pop of Pink Washi Tape finish off the card.

You can find all the new products at my website shop.  Wish me luck in my quest to be display stamper for OnStage in November!

Retiring Soon

May 28th, 2016 by craftdoc

Here’s the last card we made at the May class, featuring the Going Global stamp set and World Traveler Folder.  I’m so sad to see these retire!

IMG_4459cr

Today’s Tips:

-To get this definition from your embossing folder, ink up the inside of the folder that has the logo (the debossed side).  Then add your Sahara Sand panel and run through the Big Shot.

-To get the speckles on the Whisper White pieces, pick up some dilute Sahara Sand ink with your Aqua Painter and flick.

These items and the Lost Lagoon Cardstock and ink are retiring on May 30 from my website shop.

Retiring Soon

May 27th, 2016 by craftdoc

And here is a card that we made at the May class, featuring the retiring Corner Garden background stamp.  This was kind of a sleeper for me in the catalog.  When I got a swap card like this one (using shades of pink), I just had to have it, and so did most of my class attendees.  It is on sale too at my website shop, but limited supplies are left.

IMG_4460cr

Today’s Tips:

-Emboss the image using Versamark and white embossing powder.

-Use a sponge dauber and lost lagoon to rub ink on the centers of the flowers.  Rub from the center outward so you get shading of color.

-I have seen this image stamped in Basic Black and colored in and shaded with multiple colors of flowers for a totally different look.

Retiring Soon

May 27th, 2016 by craftdoc

For the next few days I will give my tips for my last Card Class.  Sorry these are so late!  Like yesterday, this card features the retiring Big News stamp set.

IMG_4458cr

Today’s Tips:

-Lots of embossing folders are retiring – I gave everyone a choice and they all looked good with this layout.

-Layer some ovals of the It’s My Party Paper Stack.  This retiring paper has great party images.  I’m keeping mine!  I’m also keeping the Oval framelits.  Even though these are retiring to make way for the layering ovals, this set has a couple larger ones that are not duplicated.  Be sure you pick a lighter paper to stamp on and then layer with a darker one.

-And of course pop up the Woo-hoo with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  My inspiration for this card (a swap from OnStage) had the Woohoo mounted on a toothpick.  I wish I could find the old style flat toothpicks!

Catch these items before they retire at my website shop.
