Stampin' Up! Chalk Talk Thank You for a new Friend!

I see you're all enjoying both the Retired List and the Free Shipping! It's both exciting and astonishing to see which stamps and accessories get the ax in the annual Retirement List!

Chalk Talk clear mount stamp set

Putting it Together: 

  • Luckily the Chalk Talk stamp set & Framelit escaped the Retired List. Sadly I have to say good-bye to my favorite Papaya Collage. I'm sure you can hear me wail all the way from my house! I love the greenery in this set, the little bird and butterfly. Sniff!
  • A couple of favorite colors Coastal Cabana & Crushed Curry meet my Basic Gray chalk board art inked in white Stazon. Don't we love the crisp romantic Eastern Elegant Designer Paper (retired list) trimmed in Stretch Ruffle Trim. I see that's retiring also. Must be we can expect a new ribbon for the balance of the 2013-2015 In Colors! All five Ruffle Stretch Trim are selling first come first serve!

  • I share the inside of my cards for my new Paper Crafters out there. I like to repeat my card stock and Designer Paper layers, a little stamping with Stamp N Write Markers. Sentiment here from Yippee-Skippee! survived the cut. You can breathe a sigh of relief! 

Weekly Deals have refreshed! A new batch of 8 products that are on the Retirement List also happen to be discounted here in the Weekly Deals page. Have a Look! 

Free Shipping through April 25th 

Happy Shopping Stampers!

Stampin' Up! Petite Petals for Happy Easter!

I've made some darling Easter cards this weekend for a "few good eggs" (friends of mine) with my new Petite Petals bundle clear mount stamp set and matching punch!

Petite Petals clear mount bundle 134822
wood mount bundle 134821

Putting it Together! 
  • This card is just right! Clean and Simple, a little girly, shiny with gold embossing, something here for everyone! On it's way to two girlfriends of mine that keep the mail man busy! 
  • Baked Brown Sugar card stock is my backdrop for a gold embossed Layered Labels panel in Very Vanilla. I've covered the sentiment on that panel with a Very Vanilla oval framelit stamped with my greeting and sponged in Summer Starfruit.
  • Look closely at that center oval and see an embossed ring with the help of running a smaller oval framelit on top of this oval upside down, so it didn't cut my paper but embossed it! In fact one of these came out better than the other, sadly this is the image that's not so perfect. But give it a try for an embossed "layer" on any of your framelits! 
  • So Petite Petals are inked in Chocolate Chip on Summer Starfruit, punched with the matching punch which is so cute! Love those tiny punches! I've set them on my foam piercing mat and poked my stylus from the scoring tool and just pressed in the center to make these little flowers more 3-d. Some Secret Garden framelit leaves are glued down with Tombo Mono Adhesive along with the flowers and we're just about done!
  • It's possible you can't see the Summer Starfruit stamping of the medallion from Lovely Romance on the right edge of the Baked Brown Sugar card base, that's duplicated on my inside panel on the left for repetition of design! Ta da! 

I wish you and yours a Happy Easter!

Stampin' Up! People Like You

Sharing another card I'm providing the 3rd. Annual Cards for Cancer Event Sunday May 4th.
at the VFW in St. Albans Vermont
This year I'll be helping fellow Demonstrators provide 10 cards, put on a luncheon and enjoy a great time with you guests stamping for a great cause!

People Like You wood mount stamp 133215

Putting it Together: 

  • Fresh from the Supplement catalog called Celebrate the Everyday, this beautiful single wood mount stamp People Like You. What a pretty lily flower and sentiment. I've stamped the image twice, once in Crisp Cantaloupe and again in Pistachio Pudding to punch out the Decorative Label and adhere with dimensionals. 
  • So pretty and feminine in it's color pallet and the touch of doily peeking from behind. Basic Pearls and a oval framed "thank you" make for a clean and simple layout that our guests will enjoy making!
  • I show the inside of my card for new stampers who wonder how to finish off a card. I like to duplicate the card stock layers, repeat my stamp image and introduce a sentiment from another stamp set if I have too. This from Lots of Thanks. 
Cards for Cancer Benefit Event mentioned right on my sidebar. I hope you'll plan to pre register soon and reserve your seat! We provide seating for 50 and it books every year. Some of you have been asking when this upcoming event you know! Join us on May 4th and make it a yearly event doing our part to "stamp out cancer" Please contact me with questions and your pre-registration fee.

Have a great day Stampers!

Stampin' Up! By the Tide and Sale-a-Bration re cap

I sat down to start working on my Cards for Cancer projects and thought I would share my first thoughts on a Masculine Birthday Card with By the Tide stamp set, one of my favs in Annual Catalog!

By the Tide clear mount stamp set 129120

Putting it Together:

  • I'm currently on my laptop and the colors here aren't looking so true. This is a Bermuda Bay card base, with Calypso Coral & Summer Starfruit. Another "beachy" card theme of mine, I just love this set! It makes for great collage stamping like I've done here in a few colors on Very Vanilla cropped out in a Circles Framelit and layered with the Summer Starfruit Circles Framelit. 
  • Happy Birthday is stamped from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set & cropped with the matching Framelit. How convenient of Stampin' Up! to coordinate my stamps, punches & framelits! I just love that! Makes me look so smart! :)
  • Decorative Dots embossing Folder Free to me with my $50. order! I've just selected this out of the Sale-a-Bration brochure which ends Monday night! So shop til you drop and spend your dollars wisely this weekend and enjoy FREE Sale-a-Bration goodies with your $50. purchase!
