A Parade of Cool Treats

Yesterday I shared a gift card holder using the Cool Treats Bundle.  You can see that post HERE if you missed it.  I promised to share some swap cards I received at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event I attended in Richmond.  Enjoy these really “cool” cards.

Here’s a close up so you can see she even added Wink of Stella to the ice cream treats.

I love how this card opens.  You can see the inside sentiment from the front of the card.

It is such a “treat” to see all the “cool” ways others use this set.  What do you think? FYI…The Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits will be in the new annual catalog; however, they will no longer be offered as a bundle.  If you want to save an extra 10% you need to buy the bundle now before it’s too late!

Cool Treats

img_1754

Today’s gift card holder is made using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits and the Cool Treats Bundle. I find most teenagers hard to buy for.  They usually just want/need money.  I prefer to give a gift certificate or gift card and enjoy making fun cards to go with them.  After a ballgame the kids like to go to the local Friendly’s for a bite to eat and/or ice cream.  I chose the colors for my card from the gift card and Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.

img_1755

People often ask me how I choose my color combinations.  I get inspiration everywhere…clothes, bedding, home decor, catalogs, and even gift cards.  When I looked at this gift card, Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach popped out at me.  I pulled out cardstock in those 2 colors to start and made my gift card holder with a piece of 6 x 6 Peekaboo Peach.

Then I needed a belly band so I flipped through my designer series paper swatches (which I purchase from my upline, Susan Itell at simplestampin.com).  I keep them in a basket in my craft area and refer to them all the time!!

img_1759img_1761

I thought the sprinkles pattern from the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper would be perfect for this card.  The belly band measures 1 1/4 x 9.  I wrapped it loosely around the gift card holder and secured it with Fast Fuse adhesive.  (You want to make sure you have room for the gift card and can move it easily on and off.)

img_1748

Next, I chose colors from the DSP to cut my ice cream scoops using the Frozen Treats Framelits. I cut the dish from another piece of DSP and popped it all up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on a Whisper White circle I cut from the Layering Circles Framelits.

img_1756

My projects seem to evolve as I work. I decided to emboss the inside of the card holder using the Confetti Embossing Folder to tie in the sentiment I wanted to use and the sprinkles on the DSP. My Whisper White measures 2 1/2 x 3 3/4.  I layered it on a piece of 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 Watermelon Wonder and adhered it to the inside of the card.

img_1741

I hope today’s project inspires you to look for inspiration all around you.  I often sit down with an idea of what I want to make and half the time the project I end up with isn’t at all what I originally planned.  Don’t be afraid to use what you have and let your project evolve as you go.  I’m usually happy with the end result and the recipient doesn’t know I didn’t make what I originally planned.

Updated Clearance Rack

clearance rack

This is my second post today.  (If you missed my earlier post with my Special Guest Stamper Click HERE.)  Stampin’ Up! added lots of new items to the Clearance Rack with savings up to 60% off!  I’m afraid these items won’t last long! I’ve already placed my order! I adore ribbon and there are lots of different colors and widths to choose from.  It’s quick & easy to wrap a gift in a cello bag and tie it with some ribbon.  Done!  Of course there’s also the Tin of Tags which originally sold for $22 on clearance for $8.80!!! WOW!!  What a deal!  I bought one for me and one for a gift!  Who doesn’t love and need tags??? It bet any busy mom would love that for Mother’s Day! You don’t have to make just Christmas tags…change it up to add birthday or whatever!  You could give the tin with the tags all made or let the recipient make their own.  Either way it’s a Win! Win!

Click HERE to check out all the Clearance deals (as low as $1.40)!

Guest Stamper Showcasing The Eastern Palace Suite

When I went to Massachusetts for Easter I stayed with my sister Cindy.  She is a great cook, lots of fun to be around, and super talented!!! (She’s the one who made me the beautiful spring wreath for my front door.)  She has a beautiful home with a breathtaking view of the water and an awesome craft room! Needless to say I felt like I was at a resort being pampered.

My pre-order arrived just before I left so I packed the box with the new Eastern Palace Premier Bundle (and some other new product) and we had so much fun creating! Yesterday I shared 3 of the cards I made using the Eastern Palace Suite. (If you missed that post you can click HERE.) Today I am sharing 2 cards my sister made using this suite. Here is a photo of her creating her projects.

img_1393

Here’s the first card she made.

img_1308

She started with the NEW Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock which will be in the new annual catalog June 1st (or you can get it for FREE with the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle in May). She used 2 different patterns of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper cut at 2 x 5 1/4 each. We both agree that our favorite NEW In Color is Tranquil Tide…it is gorgeous!!  Unfortunately, I could not order the new ribbon just yet but that didn’t stop her…she used the White Organza Ribbon (which I am sad to say is retiring) and dyed it using the Tranquil Tide ink and a sponge dauber.  (You can click HERE to see one of my very first blog posts showcasing this technique.) She stamped the sentiment from the Eastern Beauty Photopolymer Stamp Set and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  (I love the way Stampin’ Up! designs products to work together!) She adhered the sentiment to the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Die using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I love this font and sentiment!

img_1309

What a simple and elegant card!

img_1382

She stepped it up with her second card and made a fun gate fold card.

img_1383

The card base is Dapper Denim cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and scored at 2 1/8 on each end. The Designer Series Paper measures 2 x 5 3/8.  She cut several dies from the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Dies and layered then on a piece of Very Vanilla and Dapper Denim. She tied a simple knot with Very Vanilla Ribbon to hold the tassel and attached it to the center with a glue dot. It reminds me of a door knocker…perfect for a gate fold card!

img_1385

The center panel is adhered to the card base with Fast Fuse along the left side only to allow the card to open from the center.

img_1386

This card could be used for just about any occasion!

img_1384

I would love it if you left a comment for my sister.  Her cards really showcase the versatility of this bundle. Remember, Stampin’ Up! is offering two different options available for you to purchase from May 1st  – 31st and both come with FREE product. Whether you are a beginning crafter or an avid crafter, Stampin’ Up! has a bundle for you!

It’s High Tide


I have been on Spring Break for the past 11 days and it has been glorious!  After spending Easter in Massachusetts with family, I picked up my friend in Virginia and we drove to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a beach retreat vacation.

img_1504

What’s your “Happy Place”?

img_1559

img_1561

The sandpipers on the beach reminded me of this swap card created using the High Tide Stamp Set.

img_1587

Here’s a couple more swaps cards I received using this stamp set.

img_1588

img_1586

I am happy this stamp set will be in the new annual catalog.  I love the beach and lighthouses and the sentiments in this set are different.

High Tide Stamp Set

Look what came on vacation with me! Beach + Paper Pumpkin = Double the Happy!

Here’s a photo of my friend, Laura.  We taught together for many years in Virginia. We live 4 hours apart now so it’s always a treat when we can get together.

A Sneak Peek at Birthday Memories

I have shared with you some of the fun times I had at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.  In addition to getting the new catalog, receiving free gifts and prizes, seeing new product display boards, participating in card swaps, and sharing ideas with fellow demonstrators, we got to play with some new products and stamp sets. Previously I shared the adorable little crate we made.  You can see that post HERE. Today I have a card I made showcasing the new Birthday Memories Suite.

img_1676

The banner and fox were cut from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper using the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies. The Birthday Delivery Stamp Set has 23 photopolymer stamps with great fonts and adorable vintage storybook characters. The teacher in me loves this set. The bundle includes the stamp set, Designer Series Paper, and Framelits and will be available in June. Here’s some more ideas from the display boards.



I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek.

Have a wonderful day!
