Every Chapter Chalkboard Easel

Do you love reading? Are you part of a book club? This stamp is for YOU!

It was love at first sight for me and the “Every Chapter” stamp in the J-J Mini Catalog. I have a similar stack of books next to my bed. When I found these cute chalkboard easels at Dollar Tree, I knew exactly what to do with the stamp:

It was so simple, too! Here are the instructions:
  1. Ink up Every Chapter stamp with white craft ink and press onto chalkboard, being careful not to rock side to side. Cover wet ink with white embossing powder, shake or brush off excess powder with small, dry paintbrush and heat to set the powder.
  2. Wrap 18” of ribbon around on the left side of chalkboard and tie in a knot. Wrap the 24” piece of ribbon into 3 loops (around 3-4 fingers). Lay on knotted ribbon and tie. 
  3. Add loose flower to book with mini glue dot. Add silver pearl to center of flower.

Wouldn’t it look adorable as a favor on a table, too?

New at SU~ Floating Otter Faux Shaker

FREE is the thing I love writing on customer orders and our January New at SU! Blog Hop spotlights all the goodies YOU could choose free with a qualifying order from your demonstrator during Sale-a-Bration through February! You’ll want to visit the other demonstrators’ blogs to see the different ways to use these products, too.

I’m showcasing the Awesome Otters and Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper (each free with $50 order in the U.S.) in a “Faux Shaker Card”:

You also get a sneak peek at our new NATURAL TONES Stampin’ Blends markers which will be available to customers beginning February 1st~ you’ll appreciate that they give you more options for skin tones and animals like OTTERS!

TIP: I’m finding that our Shimmery White card stock is a better option for coloring with Stampin’ Blends as it bleeds less than Basic White card stock, with the added bonus of a little shimmer.

I’ll post the supplies at the bottom of this post when you are ready to shake things up!

What are you going to collect free during Sale-a-Bration?

I am grateful you stopped by and I know you’ll enjoy more sensational stamping as you visit the other demonstrators in our Sale-a-Bration Spotlight blog hop! Jump over to Ximena’s place for a Friendly Hello from Germany…

Tab Topper for a Tied-Up Card Closure

The TGIF Challenge last Friday got me brewing up an idea to share, and today I did a live video on my FB page to demonstrate this unique card fold using the Delightful Tag Topper punch to tie it closed!

As long as I was crafting, I wanted to use some new products from the January-June Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration that both start tomorrow (January 4, 2022), so here’s the first card I demonstrated using the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper:

You can make this card with just a little space to write in under the top flap, or add a card that opens inside so you can compose a long love letter.

Then I flipped the card to a side closure and showed off the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper that you can choose as a free Sale-a-Bration product with a $50 order. This cheerful paper coordinates with the Rainbow of Happiness stamp set in the J-J Mini Catalog, so of course you’ll want both!

This one is also a gift card holder, which would make anyone’s day more sunny:

I’ll post the supplies here tomorrow once the catalogs go live, but meanwhile, you can watch the video tutorial below or on my page:

Have a Simply Elegant New Year!

Annual Catalog -Simply Elegant Suite

New Year’s Eve is all about the bling, right? 

The Simply Elegant Suite is rich in luxurious details and textures that you just have to see in person to really appreciate. The Specialty Designer Series Paper combines the elegance of Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Very Vanilla with the shimmery luster of Gold, Copper, and Silver – it’s simply gorgeous!

Often, stamp and punch combinations are designed to punch out a specific image, but in this case the Elegant Tag Punch works with several images and greetings in the Elegantly Said stamp set. The bonus of this design is that the punch works with lots of other images and greetings from other sets, too!

The tutorial below shows a soft and sweet alternate to the colors highlighted in the Simply Elegant Suite. Here’s to a CRAFTY NEW YEAR!

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Cut Petal Pink cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″ along the 8-1/2″ side.

2) Cut Petal Pink cardstock to 3-1/4″ x 5″. Create the look of your own Designer Series Paper by stamping the floral image from the Elegantly Said stamp set all over the cardstock. Start by stamping the image twice, near the center, with Flirty Flamingo ink. Clean the stamp and then stamp around the first two images, using Petal Pink ink, until the cardstock is covered. Rotate the stamp a quarter turn each time to create a varied pattern.

3) Adhere near the left edge of the card front with Stampin’ SEAL. Add gold leaf and berry stalk die cut pieces from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack near the right edge of the layer with Mini Glue Dots or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

4) Use the Elegant Tag punch to punch Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. Adhere to card overlapping the gold ephemera with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

5) Stamp greeting on 2″ x 1/2″ Mint Macaron cardstock with Mint Macaron ink. Adhere to tag with Stampin’ SEAL or Mini Glue Dots.

6) Use Linen Thread to gently tie a bow around the finial detail on the punch.

This can be done using one or a few coordinating stamps and your choice of one or more ink colors, depending on the look you want to create. Start by stamping your selected image near the center and working out from the center towards the edges until the cardstock is covered. Rotate the stamp a quarter turn each time to create a varied pattern.
