My Team Projects with Painted Seasons!




Once a month, I host a Live Team Meeting where we talk about business and at the end I also stamp with my team. These were the eight cards created using the Painted Seasons Bundle that you can earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration.

Want to join in on my team meetings? Sale-A-Bration is the best time of year to join! I have welcome 5 new team members and my team members have welcome 4 new members of their teams also.
Why have you not joined the Stampin' Up! family? This is the best time of year to join! We are already half-way through our joining promotion so act now!

All of my new team members will now be saving 20% on ALL of her Stampin' Up! purchases. Isn't that awesome? You can too! And the best time to join is NOW during Sale-A-Bration! $175 worth of products for $99 and FREE SHIPPING or you can add the Craft & Carry Tote for $129 plus FREE SHIPPING on $175 worth of products. Did you know we also throw in a Paper Pumpkin kit for free?


What I love most is that it is No obligation:

No selling
No parties
No requirements


Now let's look at the cards I created with my team. I showed them how to cut their Painted Seasons Designer Paper in half to use on two cards. You get two different patterns when you flip one sheet over:






Each card uses the stamped images from the Painted Seasons stamp set and Painted Seasons Designer Paper that you can earn for FREE with a $100 order during Sale-A-Bration.


COMING SOON: On March 1st, you'll be able to purchase the coordinating dies to cut out the stamp images. Here is a photo close-up of those images.

Best Catch Ever!

Good Morning Everyone! I'm a little late posting today and I am actually leaving soon to go spend the day with my daughter Jessica and my two granddaughters, Kaitlynn & Kylee, so my post will be short and sweet. It's school vacation week for Kaitlynn and a holiday today so everyone is home today.

I decided to show you a masculine card that I created with the new Best Catch Bundle. You can purchase the stamp set, the dies, or both as a bundle and save 10%! Here are the details and my card:





I used Balmy Blue Cardstock for my card base and hand cut the top in a curvy shape. I added a Crumb Cake Cardstock bottom, again in a curvy shape, and attached the top and bottom with a Pacific Point Cardstock piece that I embossed with the Seaside Embossing Folder.


My next step was to add all of the stamped and die cut layers. For the fish, I used Brusho Crystal Colours, sprinkled and spritzed with water on Watercolor Paper. Once the paper was dry, I stamped and cut the fish image. I love the way the Brusho added dimension to the fish.


For the foliage, I cut the shape with the dies using Granny Apple Green Cardstock and used the Granny Apple Green Stampin' Write Marker to add details by hand. I hope you like my card for today and thanks so much for visiting. Don't forget about my 10 Year Anniversary drawing I will be holding once the month is done, for all orders placed with me. I have 10 bundled prizes!

Hello Cupcake and the NEW Coordinating Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies!


Did you miss last week's Step-It-Up Sunday on my Facebook page? I have so much fun doing these classes live on Facebook. I would love it if you joined all of us! You can find my Facebook page here and make sure you "like" and "follow" me so you'll be notified when I go live!

DEBBIE'S DESIGNS FACEBOOK PAGE

So let's take a look at the first card in my Step-It-Up Sunday. I always start out with a Clean & Simple card or #simplestamping as Stampin' Up! would call it!


Only three layers and some stamping. My stamp set choice was Hello Cupcake along with the Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies. This card is stamping only, no dies!


For my 2nd card, I stepped-it-up by adding a few more layers and a card fold.
This is a Z Fold Card Fold:



You can see what the inside looks like in this photo:



And for my final card, I stepped-it-up even more by creating a Shaker Card:



And yes, I will show you how in my video below this photo!



 Want to learn how to create all three of these cards? You can click on the video below or if your electronic device does not permit it, I have included the

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!




Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Stamps, Ink, & Paper is our theme this week and I used two stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog. Those stamp sets are Life Is Grand and Beauty Abounds. I'm pretty happy with the way this card turned out:





I think one of my new and favorite stamp images is the bubble image that I used to create the background. This image could very easily be used in creating the bokeh technique on a card. See how neat the background is in this photo?


I started my card by stamping the sentiment and flower image using Memento Black Ink. The black ink is very striking mixed in with the other colors. Don't you think? I then stamped the bubble images with Lemon Lime Twist Ink and Coastal Cabana Ink. That simple but do you know how hard it was NOT to add embellishments to the background?



Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Coastal Cabana Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3-1/2".  Glue to card front.
  • Sentiment & Flowes: Stamp the images using Memento Black Ink.
  • Bubbles: Stamp the bubbles image repeatedly using Lemon Lime Twist and Coastal Cabana Inks over the stamped images. 
Stampin' Up! Products:
  • Stamps: Life Is Grand, Beauty Abounds
  • Inks: Lemon Lime Twist, Coastal Cabana, Memento Black
  • Cardstock: Lemon Lime Twist, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White

I only have 12 card kits available so act now! I used everything that came with the kit but turned the pillow boxes into cards by adding two cardstock layers. I embossed layer #2 with the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder to add a beautiful background to each card. The first card uses the kangaroo die-cut:



And my 2nd card uses the chameleon die-cut:





You can use these cards for any celebration as I will omit the sentiment as I am not allowed to send stamped images through the mail. You could use these as birthday cards for kids or you could also use them as baby cards. What else do you receive from me when you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin?

Happy Valentine's Day and 3D Thursday!

 

Happy Valentine's Day everyone and welcome to a new 3D Project today created by Sarah Wills from Sarah's Ink Spot! Sarah is 'thinking spring' this week and after receiving lots of snow here in Maine yesterday, I am so ready for spring!

At first glance, Sarah's project looks like a very pretty card:


 But then you open it up and viola, we have an insert for a seed packet!



Such pretty detail atop the pocket on the inside. The Decorative Ribbon Punch adds such a nice layer for a border and I just love that cute sentiment Sarah used:


 And as I know, I love butterflies so this really made me smile!



Our 3D Thursday team always includes a FREE Project Sheet
each week. You can click the link below this photo:
