Be Dazzling…everything

Today I opened and played with the Be Dazzling Designer Series Paper that is going to be a free product to choose with a $50 (US) order for Sale-a-Bration (starting tomorrow, 8/3/21) and let me tell you, I’ve looked around my studio for anything else I can “Be Dazzle”!

Until I took this paper out of the package, I didn’t realize how the faceted pieces caught the light and reflected it! It’s a lovely champagne color and coordinates with gold, so I embossed the greeting in gold embossing powder for the first card and used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut a “frame” from the Be Dazzling paper. The sneak peek of the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set is from the Aug-Dec mini catalog which goes live tomorrow as well!

You can also add COLOR to this sparkling paper: I used a blending brush with the Pumpkin Pie ink pad on this pumpkin and it took the color beautifully. Then I tried a Stampin’ Blends marker to color the leaf, and it worked too! HOWEVER: I would use OLD Stampin’ Blends markers if you want to color the paper, as it’s very rough and may cause the tip of your marker to fray.

This simple card would be a lovely invitation for a fall party or Thanksgiving feast!

When you purchase the supplies to make these cards (list below), you could choose the Be Dazzling paper FREE (while supplies last) for Sale-a-Bration and may even qualify for more than one S-A-B reward!

Stitched Stampers Card Swaps

Whenever a new catalog debuted, my demonstrator friends participate in a card swap. I’ve been a part of many swaps, and I think our group (the Stitched Stampers~ a society of stampers including my Sprinkled Ink team and other demonstrator friends) has the BEST crafters! Even new stampers expand their creativity and abilities by exchanging cards and seeing how to improve.

Each person designs one card and makes multiples of the same card to trade. These were the fabulous creations from our last swap:

(My swap was the 🍑 Peach card I shared in this post)

It’s a nice perk that demonstrators get to order before a catalog goes live, and our stamping friends truly enjoy exchanging ideas! There is always room for you: Would you like to join us?

No Need for Art Class

Annual Catalog - HAND-PENNED SUITE

You don’t have to be able to draw to be artistic: Rubber stamps are the tools that give you the creativity without the time and commitment of becoming a master!

The Hand-Penned Petals suite has stamps that appear hand-drawn, with two step-stamping images to “fill in” colors and hand-penned greetings. 
Pair the stamps with the coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper and you’ll be creating keepsakes your friends will treasure for years to come. When you choose the suite of products, it includes the stamp set, dies, Designer Series Paper and Genial Gems embellishments!

Cards to Dye For

In true re-cycle fashion, tie dying is back on trend! And it seems a bit more classy than the first time around, don’t you agree?

Naturally, Stampin’ Up! saw this coming and created the Spiral Dye stamp: It creates GROOVY backgrounds for cards (at 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″, it covers a standard A2 size card front).

The COOL thing about this stamp is that when you spin the stamped image 180 degrees, you can stamp it a second time with another color and get the Tie-Dye effect! The Stamparatus tool makes it SUPER easy:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 2021_ac_p118_a_imperial.jpg

Looking at the spiral, it reminded my how often my “well-laid plans” get changed and I have to make adjustments. It happens to you, too, right? Learning to pivot and change directions is a skill that takes practice, but will help us learn to deal more smoothly with life’s unexpected challenges. Which is where I got the inspiration for this card:

Tell me you can relate.

Using Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green as my colors, I stamped the Spiral Dye on a 4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock, then used my trimmer to cut it into 6 random pieces before adding it to my card front. Demonstrators call it the “Scrappy Strip” technique.

To get a perfect edge around the word PIVOT (cut from the very versatile Playful Alphabet Dies), use an old fashioned compass drawing tool on the smallest width and lightly trace around the letters glued to white card stock with a sharp pencil. After fussy cutting, erase any leftover pencil marks.

The Lighthearted Lines had the perfect sentiments to go with it (PLOT TWIST!) and on the inside of the card I used another quote from the set:

Another Lighthearted Line sentiment that would have worked says, “When nothing goes right, go left”

Next I wanted to try embossing with the Spiral Dye and it worked out spectacularly:

It’s even more shiny in person!

I made you a tutorial for this one which you can download by clicking the button…and BTW, if you don’t have Silver Foil Sheets from last year’s catalog, there will be some in the August-December mini catalog coming 8/3!

New at SU! Designer Series Paper

We’re back with project ideas from around the globe to help you use your favorite Designer Series Paper! And what perfect timing, as many of our pretty patterned papers are ON SALE this month (July 2021) for 15% off:

While the Expressions in Ink paper is a SPECIALTY paper (and not on sale), I wanted you to see how gorgeous it is with the gold veins running through the watercolor images, so take a look:

This is a fancy fold that shows off BOTH sides of your DSP and you can use as a card (portrait) OR a pocket card (landscape).

To make the card, begin with a 5-1/4″ x 11-3/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper and score it along the long side at 1-3/4″, 4-3/4″ and 7-3/4″. Next, accordion fold it so that you have the piece you want on top, then adhere the back of the largest panel to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of card stock for a sturdy matte around your paper.

Here is the card open. I did tie the ribbon around the smallest panel and adhere it down so the ribbon won’t slide off, but you can leave the front flap free, if you’d like.

The Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper also coordinates with the 2021-2023 In-Colors, so you can mix and match the designs and colors!

For this version, the measurements are the same, but I tied the ribbon all the way around all the layers of DSP before attaching it to the card stock matte, creating two “pockets” where you can slide the card you’ll write in in the top pocket and a gift card into the shorter pocket.

The photos really don’t do the sparkle justice, but I hope you get the feel for what you could create with it! I’ll list the supplies used at the bottom of this post.

Now it’s time to hop over to Linda’s blog to see what she’s created with the Hand-Penned paper~

Sweet as a Peach: July 3 for Free

I could survive on fruit alone, and probably in my crafting, as well. Who wouldn’t love to bite into a sweet, juicy peach on a hot summer day?

In July 2021, I’m sending out 3 projects to my customers who purchase either the You’re a Peach Product Suite OR the Sweet as a Peach bundle…and let me be clear ~ The Suite is SWEETEST! It includes the stamp set, the coordinating dies, adorable Designer Series Paper AND a set of mini jam jars. (HINT: You might want to snag a second pack of the You’re a Peach DSP as it’s also on the July Designer Series Paper Sale and you are going to gobble it up).

Did you see that peek that you can also turn the peaches into cherries? (or plums, or even blueberries!)

While I will mail the consumable supplies for the free projects to you, there are a few supplies you may need. You are welcome to substitute colors you already have, but these colors will coordinate best for your projects:

  • Ink Pads: Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black, Craft White
  • Tools: Sponge Daubers, handheld hole punch, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine (or mini machine)

I created this card for a swap and wanted you to see the Stitched Greenery Die, which you may not have even noticed in the catalog, but is my new favorite. It covers a whole card and paired with the peaches, it adds the perfect texture:

Tip for stamping perfectly ripe peaches: Stamp the peaches in Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to add a *touch* of Flirty Flamingo ink on one side of the image before stamping onto your paper!

Trendy Hanging House Plants

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

BLOOM WHERE YOU’RE PLANTED SUITE

I have early memories of my mother creating macramé and the trend of hanging house plants in these woven hangers has returned with fervor! You can enjoy this old-is-new-again fashion (without having to remember to water the plants) when you create with the Bloom Where You Are Planted Suite.

One cool feature of this suite is that the dies not only cut out the stamped images, but ALSO many of the printed images on the coordinating Designer Series Paper! If you need MORE of the patterned paper to pre-cut for projects, it’s on sale during our June DSP sale!

One cool feature of this suite is that the dies not only cut out the stamped images, but ALSO many of the printed images on the coordinating Designer Series Paper! If you need MORE of the patterned paper to pre-cut for projects, it’s on sale during our June DSP sale!

For this card, you can ink the right plant image with Calypso Coral ink, then stamp off once on scrap paper, but before stamping again on card stock use a sponge dauber inked with Old Olive ink to add highlights on edges of the leaves on the stamp, then press your image to the card stock and cut it out with the coordinating dies.
