One of the first things I do when receiving new products, is to copy (case=copy and share everything) from Stampin' Up! catalogs, flyers or brochures. That's where these three cards come from. I love the ideas Stampin' Up! sends us from their concept artists:

March Sassy Stampers Club Projects!

Good Morning! I hope all is well where you are. I know a lot of you are finding it difficult to stay home during this corona virus pandemic. Dave and I are used to living this way because when we found out about his cancer a little over a year ago, we started being very careful around people because we wanted to keep him healthy. I know it's hard for some of you, but it will hopefully pass soon. How scary of a situation though.


My son Greg and his girlfriend were two weeks into hiking the Appalachian Trail when this all broke loose. They drove in a rental car from Maine to Georgia to start their adventure along with their dog Roux. They had successfully hit their first 100 mile hike out of the 2200 miles and were 2 days from reaching the Smoky Mountains. They had to make the difficult decision to abandon their dream because a lot of the towns they were supposed to come to, to restock their food and supplies were shutting down and also taking the chance of coming in contact with the virus was too iffy. On the day they made the decision to rent a car to drive back home, the Smoky Mountains were shut down to hikers because a lot of people in that area were flocking to the mountains to escape the virus. They've been home for 4 days now and in self-quarantine. Mom is happy that they are away from danger now and safely home.


I have two projects to show you today that are from my monthly club and this was for March from the Sassy Stampers Club group and we are going to meet next week virtually since we can't meet in person. I've mailed all of my club members their card kits and we will stamp live!




For the first card, I showed the girls how to add ink to our Flowering Foils Designer Paper sheets which have rose gold and silver foils imprinted in them. We sponged Lovely Lipstick and Flirty Flamingo Inks. You can see that the ink resists the foils so the shininess still peeks through the color. You can earn the designer paper sheets for free with a $50 order for two more days only!




I also used the Tags In Bloom stamp set for the sentiment layer and the Power Of Hope Bundle for the embossing on the Silver Foil Sheets. Two more products you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration and a $100 order for each. The Tags In Bloom set includes 19 stamps total and coordinates with the Label Me Lovely Punch and the Label Me Fancy Punch and the Power of Hope Bundle has 7 stamps and an embossing folder:




Our next card is called a Bay Window Card Fold. It's set up the same way as an easel card, with a stopper in place to hold the card open like you see in the next few photos:






We used the Best Dressed Designer Paper, the Dressed To Impress stamp set and the All Dressed Up Dies. Each card was a little different because each person had a different pattern from the designer paper package to use. This is the inside of the card:



And here are the details and thanks to Rachel Tessman for coming up with these measurements:

  • Cardstock base is 11" x 4-1/4". Score at 3/8", 1-7/8", 3-5/8", 5-1/8" and 5-1/2". 
  • Designer Paper: Cut down to 6" x 4" and cut the following strips on the 6" side in order so the patterns flow. 1-1/4", 1-1/2", 1-1/4" and the remainder is for the inside of the card
  • Cardstock: Two pieces for the front on each end that measure 4" x 3/8". 
Card #1 Products:




Card #2 Products:

Sale-A-Bration Thoughtful Blooms, Small Bloom Punch and a Technique!




I am so sad that only three days remain of our Stampin' Up! 2020 Sale-A-Bration period. Each year we get three months of Sale-A-Bration products we can earn for free with each $50 increment we order. What you see on today's project is actually two of our Sale-A-Bration products:

  • Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set (Level 1), earn for FREE with a $50 order
  • Small Blooms Punch (Level 2), earn for FREE with a $100 order
In using both of these products today, I also added a technique to the background of my card. You can see some of the layers and the Alcohol Marker Marbling Technique on the photo below:




I added two layers of flowers to each cluster, using a Mini Stampin' Dimensional between the layers and then topped off each flower with a Gold Glitter Enamel Dot:




It's easiest to show you how to create the background technique by watching my video below. It's a pretty neat and fun technique to try. If you can't click on the video below, I have the link listed below also:

Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!




Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Last Chance Sale-A-Bration Products is what we are featuring today. Can you believe Sale-A-Bration  products are only available for 4 more days! That's right so hurry and grab your favorites by March 31st!


For my Sale-A-Bration product, I am featuring the Little Ladybug stamp set. Not only is this a product available during Sale-A-Bration.......it's one you can earn for free as a hostess reward with a qualifying order or workshop. And what is really neat is that we have coordinating Ladybug Dies too!




I used all four ladybug images on my card and added a neat twist by "featuring" one of those ladybugs and adding color to it. I stamped all four with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then stamped the one in color on a scrap piece of Whisper White, colored it with my Stampin' Blends Markers, cut it with the die and then glued it over the first stamped image for placement. Here's a close-up of my coloring:




I love the color combination of Poppy Parade and Balmy Blue together. I used both colors with the cardstock and the Stampin' Blends Markers.




Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Poppy Parade Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2"
  • Layer #2: Balmy Blue Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Start by stamping the sentiment first and stamping the four ladybugs around the sentiment, all using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Ladybug Image: Stamp the ladybug image on scrap Whisper White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Cut with the die and color using Poppy Parade and Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends Markers. Cut over the first ladybug using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Color the pink Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots using the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends Marker and glue to card front.

Tutorial Medley Project Sheets Coming Soon!

March customers and Stamp & Ink Designs team members, your FREE Project Sheets from the Tutorial Medley team are going to be sent to you in a few days and this is the card I created for you! I have all of the steps for you!




Although the Grace's Garden Bundle is on backorder, it hopefully will be back soon once all of the products from China arrive. With the coronavirus swarming globally, some of our Stampin' Up! products were not produced for awhile and now everything is back in production.

The gate die is so awesome. I actually used my Paper Snips to cut it apart in the center so it would swing both ways. Did you notice the kitty cat and the bird sitting on top of the fence?




A few more photos for you:

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop No Matter The Weather!




Hello and welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop for the month of March! Wow is all I can say about out March Kit. This has been so well received by all subscribers. I think voted as the best one yet. I have to admit that I created a LOT of alternative projects this month and I created them all in one sitting! I couldn't put this kit down. Let's take a look at my first card:



I knew I wanted to use the rabbit and flower die-cuts to create an Easter wreath and the circular die-cut from the Painted Labels Dies was perfect to start my we. I also used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut the scalloped rectangle shape using one of the envelopes from the kit:



Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Soft Suede Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2". 
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Emboss using the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder. Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Cut up one of the pink envelopes from the kit and cut a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies 4" x 2-7/8". Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Wreath: Using the Painted Labels Dies and Soft Suede Cardstock, cut the wreath shape and glue to card front. Cut a Whisper White Cardstock circle using the Layering Circles Dies and glue to the center of the wreath. Glue the die-cut flower and bunny from the kit to the wreath using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add an Easter sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings. I colored one word at a time with a Calyso Coral Stampin' Write Marker so I could separate the words. 

Card #2:




I again used one of the envelopes for one of my layers and a few circles. I also cut the boots apart to have just one set sitting on one of the circles:




And I used the remainder of the boots on the inside like this:



It's called a Four-Square Pop-Up Card Fold and here's the Card Recipe:

Front:
  • Card Base: Balmy Blue Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4'.  
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Cut up the pink envelope to measure 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" and glue to card front.
  • Circles: Use different color paper from the envelopes and cut with a 2" Circle Punch and a 1-1/2" Circle Punch. Glue to card front.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on the circle that came with the kit and glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Boots: Cut a single pair of boots from the die-cut and glue to the large circle using Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Hearts: Glue to hearts to the other circle using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Add the raindrops embellishments to the background. 
Inside:
  • Layer #1: Add a layer of Whisper White Cardstock to each panel that measures 5-1/4" x 4". 
  • Layer #2: Petal Pink Cardstock layer over both white layers that measures 5" x 3-3/4".
  • Layer #3: Balmy Blue Cardstock strip 8" x 1-1/2". Score at 2", 4" and 6". Glue to the inside by adding adhesive to the first section and the last section. 
  • Rectangles: Cut (4) Whisper White Rectangles that measure 2" x 1-1/2". Glue to each section of the Balmy Blue Cardstock strip. 
  • Boots: Cut the remainder of the boots to create single pairs and glue one pair to each rectangle.
  • Hearts: Glue one heart to each set of boots.
