Just for the "case" of it!

I'm sharing another card that I cased (copy and share everything) from my friend and fellow demonstrator Leanne Livingstone.  I loved the layout and when I saw the Share What You Love Designer Series Papers, I knew they would look so good with it.

I think this layout would be great for using up all that gorgeous paper that we all (I know you have a stash somewhere) have, but hesitate to use because it's just so pretty!  The card goes together so quickly that you can create a bunch in no time at all.  Go give it a try, and then share your creations with me.

Happy stamping!

Love What You Do!

Do you love what you do?  One of the things I really do love about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that I get to share my love of rubber stamping with others.  It's amazing to see someone's face light up when they first try creating something using a rubber stamp and a little ink onto paper.  

This card was created using some new products that will be available in the new catalog.  It goes live on the 1st of June, but there are special bundles that Stampin' Up! has put together so that you can get your hands on these products now!  The idea for this card was cased (copy and share everything) almost in it's entirety from a fellow demonstrator, Lisa Curcio.  I added the Rich Razzelberry Velvet ribbon because it is just so beautful.  I hope you'll give this bundle a try.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Fun with Brusho

At the beginning of last month, I held a Brusho class.  Everyone loved the different techniques that I showcased.  Here is one of the cards that we made.

The background was made by sprinkling Brusho Colour Crystals directly onto the Watercolor Wash stamp, spritzing it with water then stamping it onto the Watercolor Paper.  Once it dried (you could use a heat tool to speed the process), stamp the leaves image onto the Watercolor Paper using VersaMark ink.  Emboss using black embossing powder (yeah, it's coming back in the new catalog!), and heat set.  Then the fun begins with coloring in the leaves using Brusho Colour Crystals sprinkled onto a clear block, picked up using an Aqua Painter.  The color blending that happens is wonderful, and the color simply glides on!

Hope you try it for yourself soon.

Happy stamping!

For the Guy in Your Life

Have you ever needed a quick, but manly card for that special guy in your life?  Then this card is for you!  I got the idea from Jen, one of my downline.  

The layout is simple, and could be adjusted for any occasion.  The 3/8" Corduroy Ribbon truly sets this card apart too.  Don't wait to pick your spool up, as it will retire at the end of this month if not sooner as it's available while supplies last.

 Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

Better Late Than Never.....

As seems to be my life right now, I had every intention of posting these projects last month.  Well, that obviously didn't happen.  I'm learning to juggle new responsiblities I've taken on with the Bible study I'm a part of and the rest of life which includes my Stampin' Up! business.  Needless to say, stamping hasn't happened as much.  However, I'm working on rectifying that because I truly love stamping.  It relaxes me!

So, here is a project we made at my classes and clubs this last month.  The idea came from a swap I'd received at an OnStage event, but it was sized smaller than a 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" card.  I really wanted a gift card holder that would be sized for a regular card and envelope.

Making the card a regular card size required me to use 12" by 12" card stock.  
Here are the measurements:
Card Stock:  4-1/4" x 12", scored along the 12" length at 4", 9-1/2" and 11-1/2".  
Designer Series Paper:  1 each of 4" x 1-3/4"; 4" x 3-3/4"; 4" x 3-1/4"(inside).
You'll cut a small coffee cup from the designer series paper for the flap to stay closed, and it's mounted onto the front using a Stampin' Dimensional.
I used Tear & Tape to seal the edges, but any strong adhesive would work.

My customers loved this project, and I hope you'll have fun making your own too.

Happy stamping!
