Pedal to the Metal 4-Wheeler

Sunday, July 5, 2020
Put your Pedal to the Metal with this fun card
A perfect card for the teen guy in your life - or anyone who loves 4-wheelin'
Yes, the products used on this card are retired, but perhaps you purchased these from the January-June Mini Catalog and also took advantage of the Sale-a-bration free goodies.
This card was Inspired by Mary Brown, and I thought it was so perfect for some of our neighbor boys who have 4-wheelers. With the halt in classes due to the shut down I was not able to feature this card in a class. I decided that it was perfect for a Tuesday Come Stamp With Me "class" because I do not worry about using current products.
I will be featuring this card at Tuesday's class, so I guess you are getting a sneak-peek.
This is what Mary Brown states on her blog:
  • Seaside Spray – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Seaside Spray – 3 3/4 x 5, run through Stone embossing folder (SAB), sponge some Seaside Spray ink over the bumps, add to card front
  • Golden Honey DSP (black/white stripe) – 1-1/4 x 5 add to card front
  • Night of Navy – cut out triangle banner from Bonanza Dies, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out tag from the Bonanza Dies, stamp tire tracks in Basic Grey and greeting in Memento Black
  • Add Dark Blue and Red Twine from the Country Club Twine pack, add tag to card front using dimensionals
  • Real Red – cut out triangle banner from Bonanza Dies, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp motorcycle twice, color one using Real Red and Smoky Slate Blends and the other using Night of Navy and Smoky Slate Blends, cut out and add the blue one directly onto tag and the red one using dimensionals

Ornate Garden Suite

Friday, July 3, 2020
The Ornate Garden Suite is one of those that Stampin' Up! released early and it quickly sold out. Don't worry - everything is back in stock, but it just shows you how popular it is. I especially like the beautiful ornate dies.

What attracted me to this suite is the DIES!!
Oh MY!!  Check out the Ornate Dies and Borders Dies
I also love the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder
My team member, Janell, has been making such gorgeous cards using this suite so I thought I should share them with you.
She called this a Theater Card and she learned this technique from Kylie Bertucci 
Of course you don't need to be this elaborate, the simple cards are just as pretty, like in this card I cased from Su Mohr
I will be featuring this card at the July Stamp a Stack Classes.

CUTE FRUIT

Wednesday, July 1, 2020
CUTE FRUIT!
CUTE FRUIT is a great stamp set found in our Beginner Brochure
This is such a fun set and perfect for beginners, but also great for the Casual & Avid Stampers.
I think what drew me to this set was the cute little stamps that give you the opportunity to add little faces to the cute fruit.
You may remember this card that I posted yesterday. I would call this card stepped-up or for the Casual to Avid stamper,  because of how I fussy cut the fruit and layered the pineapple.
This next card is one that would be called a beginner card, and was cased directly from the Beginner Brochure.
Now if I wanted to step it up a bit I could add a layer.

  • I trimmed down my original to 5-1/4" x 4" and added it to a Whisper White Thick Card Stock Base
Step it up even more by adding a layer of color.

  • This time I trimmed my original down to 3-3/4" x 5" and added a piece of Flirty Flamingo Card Stock measuring 5-1/8" x 3-7/8". 
  • I also popped it up onto the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

  • One more step up was to add some glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309) to the Grapefruit wedges to make them shine.
  • Colors used: Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red,               Shaded Spruce & Coastal Cabana for the sentiment.
If you are already a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber - you may wish to purchase the $10.00 Add-on kit - it is "while supplies last", and today is the first day to purchase it. If you are not a subscriber (yet), NOW is the best time to subscribe!!

Weekly Challenge, part 2

Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Using last weeks, Weekly Challenge I made up a few extra cards showing how versatile this layout is.
This first card was inspired by Connie Stewart.
What I changed up:
LAYERS!

  • I love to add at least one layer!
  • I embossed this top layer (after stamping it with SO SENTIMENTAL Stamp Set) using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder
  • I added the 3 circles - and instead of punching the 3 holes like in the previous cards (you can see yesterday's blog post HERE), I punched out 3 - 1-3/8" circles. When they sit atop the embossed piece it makes them stand out
  • and even though you cannot see it on this photo, I spritzed the front with Champagne Shimmer Paint (mixed with Rubbing Alcohol)

This second card turned out so cute!

  • I stamped the Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4" with the TASTEFUL TEXTILE 3D Embossing Folder (#152718) - it's my new favorite.
  • I also added a few GILDED GEMS (#152478) that are so classy with a faceted opaque gold color.

 I wanted to give some dimension to my pineapple so I stamped and cut out 2 extra layers

  • This is such a fun layout and the CUTE FRUIT Stamp Set can be found in the Beginner Catalog, but also at my online store (#153301) Only $16.00
  • I think what I love the most are the darling little faces you can add to your fruit.  I'm guessing I will be using these little faces for more than just this stamp set.


  • This time I turned the design on it's side and used the retired RIDE WITH ME Stamp Set and the BALLOON BOUQUET PUNCH. 
  • The Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends is the perfect blue for my truck. 
  • Balloons are Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry & Granny Apple Green

I had several of these cute ladybugs already cut out so took the opportunity to use them on this layout.
  • We had a "BEE" challenge a few weeks ago but it didn't stop me from using these cute bees from the (retired) HONEY BEE Stamp Set. 
  • The sentiment comes from the April Paper Pumpkin Kit 
  • I covered up the word "be" with the little bee. 
  • The flowers on the hive are from our new CONFETTI FLOWERS BORDER PUNCH (#152723)

It's June 2020!

Weekly Challenge

Monday, June 29, 2020
Last week, I issued a challenge to my Stampin' Up! team to take this card (that I featured last week) and to make a card using this type of layout.
I made a second card to show them
I just couldn't wait for my ZANY ZEBRAS Stamp Set to arrive to make this card. 
  1. I stamped the words and punched out my 1-3/8" circles before I embossed it with the Embossing Folder. 
  2. Then I took one of the circles (re-punched it to a 1-1/4" circle) and embossed it with the TASTEFUL TEXTILE Embossing Folder. 
  3. I popped up the circle with a Stampin' Dimensional. 
  4. The Happy Birthday is stamped onto Bermuda Bay with Versa Mark Ink and heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. 
  5. I enhanced the black stripes on the zebra using my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker (#100082 - only $3.00). 
  6. After I completed this card I was wishing that I had put a little spring behind the Zebra to bring him to life.

Here are the cards that the gals on my team came up with last week
Barb made this super fun froggy card for our challenge using the SO HOPPY TOGETHER Stamp Set that we earned for FREE during Sale a Bration in 2019. Love those little froggies!!
Vicki used her new WHALE DONE Stamp Set for her card - so VERY cute!!
Janell used the JAR OF FLOWERS stamp set - so very pretty!!
and she made it in 2 different colors - which one do you like best?

Barb made a 2nd card because this is such a fun layout!! Aren't those Elephants cute - She apologized for it not being a Stampin' Up! set, but I think they are adorable and I would just rather everyone would be stamping!!  
Linda K made this pretty floral card using BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS, 
PEACEFUL MOMENTS and SOFT SPRING.
This one made me giggle! Lynda C made this one using one of our super 
fun Sale a bration Sets HEY CHICK
Pam shared this darling PARTY PANDA'S card - so - so cute!!
This one was made by Karen - it is very similar to one I made with this same LADYBUG set
Debbie O sent this card.  She took advantage of her FREE Sale a Bration products 
INSIDE: I cute Japanese lantern
Inez sent this one using the NOTHING'S BETTER THAN Stamp Set
On the inside she also used the challenge:
It was a fun week seeing all of the cards come in for the challenge. They are all so great, and I am so happy to get them stamping and sharing.
