Stamparatus Training

Hi friends,  today I have a really quick post.  Tonight I have a few ladies stopping in to learn all about the NEW Stamparatus.  These ladies were lucky enough to purchase their Stamparatus early.  So tonight I’m going to train them.

I’m going to use this stamp set tonight to demo all the how to’s.  I love how the Stamparatus tool made it possible for me to lay out the images and decide where and what I wanted on this card prior to actually stamping the images and deciding ugh I don’t like that.  Are you with me there?  Have you ever added an image to your card and then didn’t like it?  Well, those days are over.  Now you can lay an image on the card and see if you are going to like it or not.  YEAH!!!!

Here is an example.  After I stamped the hammock, I wondered if the lights in the trees would make the card to crowded or cluttered.  So I just laid the lights above the sentiment and saw that they would look great attached to the trees.  I could move the lights higher or lower until I found exactly where I wanted them.  Once I was happy with the placement the Stamparatus did the rest.

Using the Stamparatus made all these pieces go together perfectly.  I’m so happy…..  Now if you want a Stamparatus you can order one on June 1st.  When you get yours I will be happy to train you too.

This stamp set will be discontinued on May 31st, so if you want it you need to order it right away.  Items can go quickly.  Don’t miss out.

I need to run now, but I’m glad you stopped by.

Sunshine and Rainbow Series Card # 2

Welcome back!  Card number two is a card that is very close to my heart.  When I saw the rainbow pieces and started to turn them in different directions to see if anything popped out at me this symbol did.

Jesus is amazing so this sentiment is perfect for this card.  Another hidden symbol in this card is the wood background.  The wood background symbolizes the cross.   White and gold are clean and simple colors together.  I could have left it alone at this point but I wanted to add something that would bring down the glam just a notch.  So I added a small piece of burlap ribbon into the mix.

Do you see how I made the fish symbol?  I just put a dot of multipurpose glue on the end of the first piece, let it get tacky and then placed the second piece on top.  Next, I pulled the second piece down until the ends crossed.  To secure the tail I added another small dot of glue.

I wanted the fish to stand out of course so I mounted it on a small piece of Whisper White cardstock and rounded the corners.  That piece was all mounted onto the wood embossed layer piece with dimensionals.  The dimensionals also hold the ribbon in place.

Now all you need to do is layer everything onto the card base.

This card is way out of the box for this set don’t you think?  I love it so much, I hope you do too.

Come back tomorrow, card #3 ready for you.  This one is out of the rainbow box too, I think you are going to like it.

Blossoming Basket Bundle

Sale~A~Bration is exciting and now Stampin’ Up! has made it even more exciting by adding more items you can earn.

The Blossoming Basket bundle is ONE of the new items.  This bundle contains a beautiful stamp set and an amazing Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder.

When I saw the folder I literally squealed out loud.  I love baskets and the weave is perfect for giving cards a very special feel.

To make this card I used the basket in the new bundle and a few holiday thinlit sets.  I love the fact that so many of our Stampin’ Up products coordinate.  For example, the Gate and the Welcome Banner shown here are from Holiday sets.  The flowers are from the Flourishes thinlit set.  So to make this card I used holiday product and you would never know that now would you?

Did you notice the lifelike foliage that lines the front of the basket?  That is a piece of a Boxwood Wreath.  The Boxwood Wreaths are available in the annual catalog.  When I saw this new basket I said to myself yep there is another use for those adorable wreaths.

The cute little bow comes with its own adhesive on the back so it’s so fun and easy to use.  In this photo, you can’t tell but all of the flowers and the Welcome Banner are shimmery.  I used Wink Of Stella to accomplish that look.

I colored in the basket with the Bronze Blend, I LOVE THAT BLEND.  I use brown a lot and this Bronze color is perfect to coordinate with all our SU brown tones.

I made this card because we have new neighbors around the corner.  They are really excited to live in our neighborhood, so I wanted to make sure that our family makes their family feel welcomed.

Lori came bearing gifts the other day…. Look at the beautiful card that she made for this Christmas season.  When I pulled the card out of the envelope I gasped with delight.  Simply said it’s beautiful.  Lori and I met at church.  She had heard I was “crafty” and wanted to meet me.  We have. been friends ever since.  Lori is not only a friend she is a member of my Stampin’ Up! team too.

Lori brings JOY to my whole family.  She is a special person in my life.  She supports me in so many ways.  I’m blessed to have her in my life.  I have more that one BFF and Lori is definitely one of them.

Thank you for the beautiful card Lori.  I love it and you.
