Weekly Challenge

Monday, March 30, 2020
Each week I have been issuing a WEEKLY CHALLENGE to my team.
This past week I made this card with a super fun fold that was inspired by Debbie Mageed
I followed Debbies instructions, only changing up the Designer Paper, and the sentiment, and making it a sympathy card instead.

It folds flat to fit in an envelope to send,  but it is a bit larger than our standard A2 cards (Finished size: 4 1/2″ x 6 1/4″).
You sign the card on the back side of the card. I used a retired stamp set called Better Together.
THE CHALLENGE for my team: 
I did a little video for them to show how the card went together and challenged them to take this same fold style but to make it a masculine card.
Prior to issuing the challenge I made this masculine version using the SAILING HOME stamp set and dies
and the COME SAIL AWAY Designer Paper
It's been a long time since I pulled these products out and it just reminded me of what amazing designer papers Stampin' Up! has.
Here's my masculine card: Because of the striped paper I opted to go horizontal with the base and vertical with the front piece to break things up.
 BACK:
 Folds Flat to mail
Here are the 2 side by side
Here are some cards that my team came up with
Anna 
Barb
Barb got creative and changed up the size so it would fit in our A2 envelopes.
Inez
Karen had the same idea as me and used the Sailing Home bundle
Lynda made hers a graduation card
Brenda took advantage of one of the Sale a bration Designer papers from a past year. Love those hot air balloons
So not only do you get FREE product with every $50 purchase during Sale A Bration...

I Miss Your Face!

Saturday, March 28, 2020
This one is kind of funny!
When this newest release of FREE stamp sets came out for Sale a bration I thought "who would want a stamp that says 'I miss your face?'"
THEN...all this virus stuff started happening and everyone everywhere is missing being with their people.
Classes are canceled, schools are canceled, churches are canceled (but thank goodness for live-streaming).
We are all in this together, but I just wanted to let all of you know "I MISS YOUR FACE!!"
The stamp set is called TAGS IN BLOOM
You can stamp the inside of the flower with 2-step stamping OR you can use your Stampin' Blends like I did.
I was inspired by two different demonstrators who had very similar cards, Patty Bennett and Cindee Wilkenson
I wanted to change mine up just a smidge so I added another layer on the front of my card:
Card #1 I added a piece of Whisper White 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" and the SO VERY VELLUM Designer Vellum (also FREE during SAB with a qualifying order) is cut at 5" x 3-3/4"
Card #2 instead of Whisper White, I added a layer of Pool Party.  an you see the difference? The one with the Pool Part behind it is much deeper and richer.
I popped up this double layer with Stampin' Dimensionals
Another change that I made is with the scalloped rectangle from STITCHED SO SWEETLY - I ran it through the Big Shot with the SUBTLE Embossing Folder.
This layer is attached using Multipurpose Liquid glue.
The next change I made was to stamp the image on scrap Whisper White, cut it out, color it with Stampin' Blends, and attach with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
COLORS: Bermuda Bay Combo, Soft Sea Foam Dark, So Saffron Dark.
The top piece is stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and punched out using the LABEL ME LOVELY punch. The Sympathy Sentiment is from PEACEFUL MOMENTS and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Such a great set for sentiments!, and I love the fonts.
An extra flower was fussy cut and colored and added to the bottom bouquet.
Okay - look back at the stamp set - you can see it only has flowers on the top, so I inked it up a second time trying to get just the flowers, and then because it is a photopolymer stamp, it is super easy to line up.
Card #3 I stamped the image directly onto the stitched rectangle, and then did not emboss it.
I even tried this same layout with the Flowering Foils Specialty Paper (also FREE until March 31st) Check out all the products by clicking on these links:

Another Sympathy Card

Friday, March 27, 2020
This is another card that I prepared for a future class once we can all meet together.
I really love the soft color of the SEASIDE SPRAY Card Stock. I'm so glad that it will be around for another year as it is one of our In-Colors.
The Flowers from PAINTED POPPIES are colored in using the Seaside Spray Stampin' Blends and the Silver Lined Ribbon that comes in White was also colored using the Seaside Spray Stampin' Blends.
The leaves were colored in with the Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends.
This card was inspired by Tina Rappe, but I changed it up by embossing the top layer with the BRICK & MORTAR 3D Embossing Folder (Tina used the SUBTLE 3D Embossing folder).
Do you love the beautiful oval frame? It is from the WOVEN HEIRLOOMS FRAMES DIES AND 3D EMBOSSING FOLDERS, and I used Gray Granite Card Stock.
Just like on an earlier post this week, I used the stamp set PEACEFUL MOMENTS for the sympathy sentiment.
So not only do you get FREE product with every $50 purchase during Sale A Bration...

Dreaming Of Warmer Weather?

Thursday, March 26, 2020
Dreaming of warmer weather?
Are you one that had a Spring Break vacation planned, but now have to stay home because of this crazy virus threat?
Then this card is perfect for you!
Even the sentiment "ENJOY TODAY" is appropriate, not only for a birthday, but just for a card of encouragement.
The Tropical Paper makes me feel warm all over. It was inspired by Angela

With Sympathy

Wednesday, March 25, 2020
I have had a "run" on sympathy cards lately so now is the time to restock.
This first card I used the FLOWERING FOILS Specialty Designer Paper that you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase through March 31.  See all the details below.
The Sympathy sentiment is from the stamp set PEACEFUL MOMENTS. This stamp set will be available through June 2 (unless Stampin' Up! decides to carry it over to the annual catalog which would be GREAT!)
The flowers are created with the POPPY MOMENTS DIES using Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive card stock. However I wanted a softer Calypso Coral so I used the SPONGE ROLLER to roll Calypso Coral ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. It's one of my favorite things to do.
On this second card I also used the POPPY MOMENTS DIES for the flower. This time I sponged Blackberry Bliss ink onto Purple Posy Card Stock to get a softer color.
The amazing circular die is from PAINTED LABELS DIES and the greenery in Mossy Meadow Card Stock is punched using the SPRIG PUNCH. The Gorgeous Designer Paper is from PEACEFUL POPPIES.
Card #2 was inspired by Linda Schnabel
So not only do you get FREE product with every $50 purchase during Sale A Bration...
