Next week is Cody’s birthday and it’s time to make him a card!
I used a new Sale-a-Bration stamp set called “Awesome Otters” (which you could choose free with a qualifying purchase during January & February) and the Slimline cards from the January-June mini catalog. This is a BIG card ~ finished size is 8.5″ x 3.5″ ~ and if you want to see how to make it, you can watch my Facebook Live video from 1/10/22.
I’m so pleased that you like the Ice Cream Corner Suite as much as I do! I’m all-in for any rubber stamps with a coordinating punch: It makes paper crafting so easy.
This is the last week to order the bundle or suite and receive my April 3-for-Free kit:
While the stamp set and punch will be in the 2021-22 Annual catalog, they won’t be bundled together with the 10% discount like they are right now, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper will be retiring by the end of June!
This is a card we created at our last Stamp Club…and by the way, Stamp Club begins again in MAY, and we’d love to have you JOIN THE CLUB!
Don’t limit your creativity to cards…I even used the supplies to create this with a Rusch clock from Ikea:
Here’s the video tutorial taken from my Facebook Live demonstration:
Happy to have you here as our international blog hop team of demonstrators is showing you how delightful the products from the Stampin’ Up! January-June Mini Catalog are to craft with!
If your children (or grandchildren) have contributed to the BILLIONS of times “Baby Shark” has been viewed or listened to, you know the frenzy that surrounds this phenomenom
When my niece was born, a school teacher asked her older brother what they had names is new baby sister. He was struggling to pronounce “Charlotte” so he told the teacher his baby sister was “Sharky”. Naturally, she needed a SHARK FRENZY card to celebrate her recent age advancement (birthday)!
I noticed that the “Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo” could also be sung as “Happy Birthday to You” I borrowed the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set (the “to you” came from a past Paper Pumpkin set…they come in handy at times like these!) for the inside of this double-easel card.
To make a double easel card, make card base 11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ and a second piece of card stock 4-1/4″ x 5″ scored at 1″ and 3″ along the longer edge. Adhere the 1″ flap of the smaller piece to the bottom front edge of the card (with the score along the bottom edge) to create a double easel card base, then add layers of Designer Series Paper, embossed backgrounds or stamped images to embellish your card.
Combined with the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper, you’ll SEA a lot of crossover versatility with the Shark Frenzy bundle!
Your demonstrator can help you order the supplies needed for a Sharky card, or if you don’t have a demonstrator, I’ve shared the supplies I used below (U.S. customers) Now bounce on over to Suzanne’s website for another darling animal to craft with: Kangaroo & Company!
Consoling myself with stamped chickens is (only) slightly less messy and time consuming, but there aren’t any delicious eggs to look forward to. It’s all good though, because these hens from the Birthday Chick stamp set make me laugh as much as the live versions did!
This greeting card started with the TGIF Challenge on Friday to use our background stamps: The All Wired Up background had been on my mind since the chicks arrived!
By using the new Blending Brushes to add a little extra Granny Apple Green ink at the bottom of the background, it added on Ombre element that helps Chunky Clucky really pop off as the focal point!
You may be asking…where did the picket fence come from? Did you fussy cut Chunky Clucky? Well, my friends, I have good news for you: On February 2nd, customers will be able to order coordinating dies (and that’s not all, so stay tuned)!
I have a thing for FRUIT (Creative JUICE, after all) and I love a coordinating punch, so it comes as no surprise that the FIRST thing on my list from the January-June Catalog was the SWEET STRAWBERRY bundle:
Stampin’ Up! made it SWEETER when they offered the Berry Blessings Bundle as a FREE choice during Sale-a-Bration for a $100 order…a coordinating stamp set to my beloved strawberries AND matching Designer Series Paper? YES THANK YOU!
Naturally, I’ve been playing with it night and day since I got it. I dream about berries! Yesterday, I made this card so I could see both sides of the Designer Series Paper and you can watch the tutorial to make your own version.
If you are as obsessed with these beautiful berries as I am, you’ll be happy to know that the Sweet Strawberry bundles is my 3 for Free kit in January 2021: When you order the bundle from my stampin’ store, I’ll send you the consumable supplies to create 3 projects with your new bundle ~OR~ you can come to my JAM-BERRY class in Utah County on January 23rd and stamp your projects in person with me for free!)
You will need a few items on hand to complete the projects. These items will not be included in the kit:
Ink Pads: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Tuxedo Black Memento, Whisper White Craft ink -OR- Versamark pad.
If the Sweet Strawberry bundle is on your list for “later”, move it to the top so you can take advantage of the opportunity to get the Berry Blessings bundle during Sale-a-Bration AND my 3 for Free projects!
Welcome to our blog hop through the January-June Mini Catalog: Our group of demonstrators from around the world look forward to sharing ideas that you can incorporate into your paper crafting using Stampin’ Up! products.
The size of the tag is generous and gives you plenty of room to stamp. These are two tags I made to use on my grandchildren’s birthday gifts:
The stitched edge around the tag is a detail that adds a finishing touch. Plus the animal “buddies” fit on the tag with room for a sentiment.
You don’t have to stop at a gift tag, take that tag and put it on a card, too:
As you are hopping through the blog posts, pause to leave a comment and grab a notebook to jot down creative ideas, draw a card sketch you want to try, color combinations you love or pin them to a Pinterest board!
Jump on over to Germany and Anke’s stamp studio next…or if you are going backwards through the hop, you can skip back to Mary Ann’s post:
You can order the products we are showcasing in the hop from your demonstrator!
If you don’t have a demonstrator and live in the U.S. I’m happy to serve you. You can shop the products I’ve used today in my Stampin’ Store.
