Right Tools for Embossing; a Bewitching Card!

Crafters always want to know where to get an embossing tray like mine, and now you can! The Embossing Additions Tool Kit is available again (for a limited time?) in the July-December mini catalog, and I showcased it today under a little heat…um, I mean heat embossing.

Actually, the air conditioning converter at my house went out, so I was sweating and stamping at the same time! Not to worry, the repairman came after my video and fixed it. But not before I forgot to show you how to use the Reverse Tweezers in the kit. Oh well, the magic of editing helps.

And not only did we emboss, but I showed how to create a mask from the Dots & Spots die for the background! Keep the mask you create in the envelope with the die and I promise, you’ll find excuses to use it often with your blending brushes. The die is one of the products added to Sale-a-Bration in August and you can see the rest of the freebies-with-qualifying purchase HERE.

Just remember that there are two item numbers for the die: Item #159164 for PURCHASING the die, and item #163098 if you want to redeem it free with a $100 purchase during August 2022.

Watch the how-to video, then get shopping to get your Embossing Addition kit while it’s back in the catalog:

Today I’m sharing a tutorial for a card you could create with the AMAZING PHRASING stamp set that you could choose free with a qualifying order during this great time for crafters…and it’s more sparkly in person:

The way the playful fonts work together are going to make it a stamp set you’ll enjoy crafting with for all sorts of reasons. And I’ve created a tutorial for you to download and print, making this card duplicatable in any color of glimmer paper and every combination of sentiments!

Need more ideas with the Amazing Phrasing stamp set? Don’t miss my previous ideas in THIS POST!

Remember that the exclusive Sale-a-Bration products are only while supplies last (and the Tree Lot Dies and Pool Party & Soft Seafoam Cards & Envelopes are sold out). Never fear: There are also NEW choices that have been added from our year-round offerings:

If you want to choose one of these as your freebie-with-purchase in August, REMEMBER to use these item codes:

Polaroid Picture Card: Reverse Masking Technique

It’s easy to miss the Masking Paper in the Stampin’ Up! catalog, and you may not even know why you NEED it, so I’m here to tell you why you do.

It’s like a full sheet of thin post-it note stickiness that allows you to do some pretty cool things with your ink and blending tools. For this card, I made a reverse mask for both the sunset background and the tree with the Masking Paper, then used the Tree Lot Dies from Sale-a-Bration pt. 2 to create the cute little Airstream camper:

Here’s the video tutorial:

The Tree Lot dies are wonderful to use by themselves, and the coordinating stamp set “Trees for Sale” extends the creative possibilities through the holiday season and beyond! Just remember that they are free (while supplies last) through August 2022.

Have a good time trying this technique in your stamping studio and share your version in my Creative Juice Crafter’s Corner Facebook Group!

One-Sheet-Wonder Cards for ANY Occasion

Since I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks, I woke up so excited to get back into my craft room and do a LIVE stamping video on my Facebook page today at lunchtime, and I was able to MULTI-CRAFT for a few occasions: My parent’s 58th Anniversary, to show you a wonderful Sale-a-Bration stamp set AND to participate in the Global Design Project Theme Challenge #GDP351 about SHAPES:

I pulled out the Watercolor Shapes stamp set to create my own patterned paper on a full sheet of white card stock using Fresh Freesia, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya and Pool Party ink pads. Next, I cut the paper into 7 different pieces and layered them on card bases, then I stamped the greetings from the Amazing Phrasing stamp set you could choose as your Sale-a-Bration freebie (with a $100 US order). To give them a bit of bling, I added sparkly Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems.

You can watch the full tutorial (and fast forward through me talking) on my Creative Juice by Loni Facebook page HERE because I don’t have time to edit it for YouTube today.

Seven cards from one sheet of patterned paper:

Then I finished one more with a layer of black card stock:

How clever is it to use the gems & rhinestones to create a little exclamation point?!

During Sale-a-Bration you earn free craft supplies when you shop, host a party (yes, I do virtual parties too!) or join my team (and if you are buying more than $99 anyway, the starter kit is the best deal!)

Feels Like Home~ TGIF Sketch

Do you feel like you make the same style of card over and over again? The best way to STRETCH your creative muscles is with a SKETCH!

For my Lunchtime LIve Crafting on my Facebook page today, I started with the #TGIFC329 sketch challenge and the Feels Like Home Sale-a-Bration stamp set…I’m having a ball using these freebies in my Monday videos to help inspire YOU on ways to use the gifts/supplies you earn for each $50 spent through September 30th, and if you want to watch today’s video tutorial, click here!

This is the TGIF sketch challenge and here are my finished card(s):

When you buy the supplies to create this card, you could choose the stamp set FREE!

I thought it was fun to flip the embossed layer over so the mortar is squeezing out between the bricks. It feels very “Mediterranean Seaside” to me… like an armchair vacation to Greece.

My only dilemma is which card do I love more: The card version with the white or sand colored bricks?

Final Days to Sale-a-Brate

You aren’t imagining things: Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration is a little shorter this year…but don’t worry: There will be 2nd Sale-a-Bration in July and August, with all NEW (limited time) products to earn! That means you only have 3 days left to snag the wonderful freebies from the current event, because it ends February 28th. I’ll share a few of the SAB products I’ve been crafting with:

Darling Donkeys has been neck-and-neck with Berry Blessings for most popular Sale-a-Bration stamp set! Do you have this one yet? I layered him on an embossed piece of vellum for a fabulous birthday card.

When you find a card pattern that will work with all of your Designer Series Paper, make a big STACK of them! That’s what I did with the Flower & Field DSP and used this card for swapping at our recent StampFest events. It’s an inexpensive card, since the paper was free!

Finally, this was ONE of the cards I demonstrated in my Lunchtime Live Crafting on my FB page this past Monday showcasing The Touch of Ink stamp set and the Oh, So Ombre paper …with plain and patterned paper that will pair well with any stamp, it’s a great choice to expand your choices for projects with Bermuda Bay, Rococo Rose, Granny Apple Green or Blackberry Bliss (shown). Be sure to watch the video to see the other projects I demonstrated!

Now RUN (don’t walk) to get your order in before February 28th so you can choose a free Sale-a-Bration reward (like one of these) with each $50 you add to your cart before they are gone forever!
