Last Chance to Party (with select products)

Did you miss the opportunity to get the coordinating dies for This Birthday Piggy, Yeti to Party or Apple Harvest stamp set?

Are you a savvy shopper and love stocking up for next year early?

TODAY IS YOUR DAY!

New items have been added to the CLEARANCE RACK **and** the Last Chance list from the July-December catalog is up, with many holiday items on sale up to 60% off. This is not the time to dilly-dally, because when they are gone, they are gone.

I’ll be sharing some projects on social media all day (follow me on FB & Insta), but just for you here, this is a big tag I created a few months ago to go on the dishwasher we replaced for my Mother-in-Love for her birthday & Christmas gift…and if you know Launa, you know she love PIGS and I love having dies to cut out the images from “This Birthday Piggy” stamp set:

I forgot to take a picture of the finished tag on the dishwasher, so all you get is the video!

These coordinating dies will go fast, along with Designer Series Paper and embellishments from the current mini catalog that are deeply discounted, so fill your cart and craft for Christmas.

Santa’s Delivery: Holiday Decor

Over the weekend, I participated in the First Annual Kane County Crafter’s Convention in Kanab, Utah and had so much fun playing in the “Location for Creation”, as my friend Seana Johnson coined it! Seana coordinated a wickedly wonderful 1st event with Create Room, Stampin’ Up! and the Kane County Office of Tourism as sponsors, and it was an dream escape for all who attended:

My teammate Sue Stratton and I designed and prepared 8 paper crafting projects for the guests, and this was the Holiday Decor piece I created as a project for the event participants:

You can find the tray at Dollar Tree, and it makes the ideal frame for a holiday scene! Because the Santa’s Train dies can die cut the stamped images OR the images from the Santa’s Express Designer Series Paper, I demonstrated a slightly different version in my video today:

While I’m still working to get the WHOLE video to post correctly on YouTube, you can catch a second version on my Facebook Page Video, if needed.

It’s just as cute when using the Designer Series Paper:

If you choose to create this version, here’s what you’ll need (and thanks for letting me supply your creative needs!):

Product List

Floating Circle Card

When you have thin strips of Designer Series Paper you don’t want to throw away, just glue them to a window sheet and die cut a “floating circle”! Want to see more? Watch my Facebook Live video from 10/17/22 and see how easy this card was to create!

We stampers love a little shine and shimmer, and that’s just what you’ll get in the Splendid Day Specialty Designer Series Paper pack…this angle shows how each double-sided paper has one metallic side and one pretty printed side, and you really can’t bear to let any go to waste:

Pick a small sentiment to stamp on one of your non-metallic strips. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals are easy to hide behind the strips, and lift your circle off the card to make it look like it’s floating! Add a floral image and you have a simply sensational card.

While this DSP was created to coordinate stunningly with the Splendid Thoughts bundle (see my original card below the supply list), I used the Sending Smiles bundle for my video demonstration – the sentiments in the Sending Smiles stamps fit on the strips perfectly.

This is one to try immediately in your stamp studio!

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:

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!)

Christmas Scottie Card

I know it’s only July, but summertime is the BEST time to get your Christmas cards stamped and ready for a busy holiday season…and you needed to see how adorable this new bundle in the July-December Mini catalog is!

Of course a coordinating punch is a tool I love, and this one just begs to be loved! I actually created this card for my team card swap (we have a swap with each new publication) and by working assembly-line style, I made 14 cards in less than 2 hours, and watched a movie while working, so it was an enjoyable way to spend a day!

Torn Paper Window Card and Free Shipping Day

Yep! Today (Tuesday, June 21st) is a Free Shipping Day!

But first, learn how to make a “Torn Paper Window Card” using something old and something new:

These greeting cards are made easy with just layers of card stock and beautiful Designer Series Paper! Here’s the video from my Facebook live last week teaching you how fun they are to create:

While the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper is brand new, the Symbols of Fortune Designer Series Paper and is about to retire and is half price in the Last Chance sale for retiring items in the January-June Mini Catalog. And if you loved the font in the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set used on the first card, it’s also retiring in just a few days!

The Last Chance Sale is just one reason you will want to check your list and shop today during the Free Shipping Day – If you have kids complaining of boredom this summer, grab a few craft kits from our Kit Collection BOGO 50% off sale to pull out for a few hours of creative fun for anyone!

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:

Pumpkin Thank You Card

It was hard to sleep last night, so I imagined crafting with the colors from the #tgifc341 challenge: Very Vanilla, Pool Party and Pale Papaya. To be honest, it didn’t help me sleep, but it did make me excited to create this card for my FB Live today!

Can’t get enough pumpkins for the fall, and the daisies were a whimsical touch paired with my polka-dot pumpkin, don’t you agree? The background was hand drawn with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends markers. Don’t be afraid to make your own plaid!

Mixing up all your stamps and supplies can expand your creativity!

One of the best ways to get most of the supplies for this card is to take advantage of a November-only special for the Starter Kit: Choose $125 in products for just $75!

Not only do you get a great savings on your supplies, you’ll get a discount on future purchases and a chance to see if being a demonstrator works for you!

Toasty Treats Gift Boxes

Love to give tasty gifts, but hate to bake? This project will have you making, but not baking!

Did you know there are PUMPKIN PIE POP TARTS…and they really taste like a pumpkin pie? They are really yummy! I found mine at Target, and you want to pick up at least 20 Pop Tarts (or 10 sets) because 2 fit into our Kraft Gift Boxes perfectly, and they come in a set of 10. Of course, you could make a Christmas version of this project and substitute a holiday flavor!

But sticking with the pumpkin theme, here are two options~ I used the Sweets & Treats stamp set (all supplies listed below) to create one of these boxes and the Pretty Pumpkins bundle to create an alternate version:
