Simply Sunflowers

Summertime calls for simple stamping and when I needed a birthday card recently, I pulled out the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set, the Everyday Label punch and some bright colors to craft this one:

Too Cute to Resist!

I gave my Sprinkled Ink Team the challenge to create a project using a color palette including a 2021-2023 In Color and this is the card I came up with (because you can’t ask your team to do something you aren’t willing to do)!

You know I love to combine a few challenges, so I borrowed some inspiration from the Global Design Project “Case the Designer” theme this week, where Emma Goddard’s card was a great starting point:

I flipped the black & white vs colored strip around so I could teach how to do the emboss resist technique: It’s an easy WOW that makes any card irresistible (see what I did there?).

To do this, you simply need to emboss your image in white or clear embossing powder onto white card stock, then blend ink over your embossed images~ the embossed images resist the ink and appear magically!

Watch HOW here:

Remember: When you buy the Dragonfly Garden BUNDLE (stamps + punch) from my Stampin’ Store in June, you get 3 free projects in the mail! Consider this card a bonus idea 🙂

New at SU! My Favorite PEACH Suite!

It’s my favorite blogging day of the month! Hopping around the world to bring you crafty inspiration is something I look forward to, and I hope you do too.

This month, our team is showing off their favorite new SUITE of products from the 2021-2022 Catalog.

DID YOU KNOW: Each suite is thoughtfully designed with FOUR coordinating products to make it easy for you to createe with confidence? 1. Stamp Set, 2. Coordinating Dies OR Punch, 3. Designer Series Paper, 4. Additional “matching” product.

It’s probably no surprise that my favorite new Suite is You’re A Peach! (since I used it last month, too) and when I saw the Fruit Herbal Tea sampler in the store, it sparked the idea for my project:

You’ll appreciate how easy it is to make this double treat holder…as well as the fact that it’s TWO-SIDED:

And yes, those “Cherries” are actually peach stamps from the Suite, just stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.

Start with an 8.5″ square piece of Designer Series Paper and follow these steps to make your own (no real measurements needed…I promised it would be simple):

Embellish as desired! I was glad the box of tea had both PEACH and CHERRY tea; because each of the envelopes has 3 tea bags inside, this treat holder is generously sized and could also fit cookies and candy bars. You can start with a smaller or larger square of paper to adjust to the size of your treats.

Supplies listed below~ You can order from your demonstrator, but if you live in the U.S. and don’t have a demonstrator yet, I’d be happy to serve you!

June 3 for Free: Dragonfly Garden

Punches make creating cards simple by offering an element that adds that “punch” of pizzazz! This month, my 3 for Free kit will be mailed out to those who order the Dragonfly Garden bundle, which features the Dragonfly punch and you’ll be flying to the craft room to put them together.

While I will send you all the consumable supplies (card stock, paper, ribbon, etc), there are a few ink pads and supplies you may want to add to your order (if you don’t already have them) to help you complete your projects:

  • Balmy Blue Classic Ink Pad
  • Bumble Bee Classic Ink Pad
  • Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Ink Pad
  • Versamark Ink Pad
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Gold, Copper OR Silver Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool (for embossing)

To get you inspired by this bundle (and to teach you how to make some stunning watercolor backgrounds), I demonstrated these two cards during my Facebook Live yesterday (not part of my 3 for Free kit):

The technique (Stampin’ Blends on Vellum with Alcohol) is really quite magical, and so enjoyable to watch:

As I mention in the video, if you don’t want to do this technique yourself -OR- you just want MORE of it, you can also subscribe by June 10th for the Paper Pumpkin Kit “Expressions In Color” which will get you making 9 gorgeous watercolor themed cards in moments with everything you need in one kit arriving in your mailbox:

For the Guys: Floating Element Card

When you need to make a BIG DEAL out of a celebration for a man in your life, you need to make a BIG CARD. This large slimline card fits into a legal size envelope. Even more cool are the hats and stars that seem suspended just above the card, and to make it is easy!

There is a .pdf tutorial for you to print and follow, but basically, you will create a panel and attach all your die cut images with dimensionals, then cut off all the pieces that hang over the edges of the panel before attaching it to your card.

Don’t limit yourself to the colors I used: Choose a palette that matches your man’s personality, then try this technique with any other die cut images and sizes of cards!

Thanks for letting me provide you with creative inspiration AND the supplies to craft with:

Did you know that Bundles of stamps and punches or dies are available at a 10% discount? Here’s an important tip! If you love the coordination of stamps and tools then don’t miss saving 10%, because all bundles in the current Mini catalogs will retire and take the 10% savings with them. Some of the stamps, dies, and punches will still be available in future catalogs, but not as bundles, so the 10% savings ends. Bundles, because they include more than stamps are only available while supplies last, so you wont’ want to wait to get your bundles ordered.

Flowering Cactus In Color

While I’m a native southwestern girl, I confess I’m not really into southwestern decor. However, the Flowering Cactus Product Medley caught my attention in the Jan-June Catalog with a fresh palette and adorable images and fonts that really made me want to play with it.

Enter the #GDP293 color challenge with 3 new In Colors, and they’ve got me reaching for that Flowering Cactus…

While stamping the background, it’s not going to look good until you are almost finished stamping…don’t worry if it looks a mess, it will all work out fine!

This is the type of card you have to intentionally mail: Can you think of a friendship that has become richer through the years because you’ve been through a lot of “sticky” situations and “dry” seasons? Write down those memories and be grateful that you are closer because of them.

Don’t miss the chance to add the Flowering Cactus Product Medley to your stamping stash: It retires in June!

Connect Through Crafting

In September 1992 I was a young mother with two children under 2 and while I loved being a mom and adored my babies, I also craved a creative outlet (aside from fixing endless meals) and adult conversation.

One Sunday at church, my husband took our fussy baby out to the foyer where he ran into a classmate from High School. As they visited, LaVonne told him that she and her sister had started a direct sales company selling rubber stamps. Cody knew of my love for all things paper and my scrapbooking habit, so he introduced us after the service. Once she handed me a Stampin’ Up! catalog from her Suburban, I was hooked.

The experiences I’ve had as a demonstrator in the ensuing 29 years have added so much value to my life! There is a joy to making and mailing cards and crafting something permanent, together with the relationships I’ve forged with some of the kindest and most creative people around the globe that is glorious!

At our April Demonstrator Gathering, we had a Shoebox Swap and Dessert Bar with our stamping friends!

If you love crafting and are looking for more connection, being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is a great way to do both. and now is a fabulous time to join my stamping family: Through May 31st you’ll get a bonus of even MORE FREE products in you customizable Starter Kit!

Hats Off, Dad!

This is the time of year I make the most masculine cards. With Father’s Day coming up (and plenty of boy birthdays), I wanted to take the #TGIFC316 sketch and try it with the new Hats Off stamp set and dies.

The result was a card that reminds me of my both my father and father-in-love (a term borrowed from my friend Jan). What do you think?

Masculine cards don’t need a lot of embellishments, so once I figured out the width for the card stock strips, it didn’t take long to put together. They are all 4″ long and from the top, the widths are: 1/2″, 1-1/2″, 1″, 3/4″, 1/2″ and 3/4″. Choose any color combination you love, and I’ll put my supply list below if you want to copy it.

The stitching around the hat are from the dies and add just the right touch. TIP: Adhere your vellum to the card under the hat and you won’t see the adhesive showing through.

I think you’ll find plenty of occasions to use this very versatile hat, so order it in time to put it to use for Father’s Day!
