Paper Pumpkin Video…August 2017

I got my Paper Pumpkin just before I had to leave to bring my daughter back to college. Perfect timing as I love to bring my kit with me when I travel! Everything is included which makes it easy to create “on the go”! Considering my van is packed full of everything my daughter could possibly need for the next year, it’s about all the room that was left!

This month’s kit has 8 full size cards and a great stamp set that works for different occasions.  Check out this video to see the contents and intended projects.

I love to give a set of cards as a gift and really appreciate the beautiful gift box included in this kit. Now I just have to decide who gets this box with their cards.

A Sneak Peek at Painted Harvest for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #11

Stampin Up sunflower made with Painted Harvest Stamp Set and Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. For inspiration, directions, and more visit www.juststampin.com

When my son was little we planted sunflowers.  All summer long he watched them grow and got so excited the taller they grew.  He couldn’t wait to get dressed, run outside, and stand beside the sunflowers to see how tall they were in comparison to himself. He would report daily and tell me it was as tall as his “boo boo”, up to his knees… on up until they were over his head.

img_6359

I noticed these sunflowers in my neighborhood the other day and they made me smile as I was reminded of that summer garden.

I was inspired to create today’s card using the new Painted Harvest Stamp Set which will be available in the new Holiday Catalog starting Sept. 1. It will be available as a bundle with the new leaf punch (Love it!!!). This is my favorite bundle in the new catty! It could have something to do with the wonderful memories it evokes or just the beautiful images you get with the two-step stamping.

Painted Harvest Stamp Set by Stampin' Up. For ideas, inspiration, and more visit www.juststampin.com

I used elements from this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge board to create this card. I choose 3 in a row across the middle: flower, thank you, angled.  It also works diagonally: yellow, thank you, leaf. Here’s this week’s challenge board.

img_5969

My card base is Garden Green embossed with the Layered Leaves Textured Impression Embossing Folder. I added a 1 1/2 x 5 strip of DSP from the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and some Jute Twine (Avail. Sept. 1).

Stampin Up Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. For inspiration, ordering, and more visit www.juststampin.com

I love all the texture on this card! I used So Saffron and Crushed Curry ink for the two-step stamping on my sunflower. I added Early Espresso ink to the center and while it was still wet I took my blender pen and just pulled out some color from the center to highlight the petals. I popped up the stamped layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I am going to put this card in the mail to my son. He is so happy in his new job and I'm so thankful I got to spend time with him this summer.  I think he will get a kick out of this old photo. 

I stamped the flower again on the inside where I will write a personal note.

I am going to put this card in the mail to my son. He is so happy in his new job and I’m so thankful I was able to spend time with him this summer.  I think he will get a kick out of this old photo (which will slide easily under my twine to hold it in place).

I hope you enjoy Tic Tac Toe Thursday as much as I do!  Be sure to check out what the design team and others created and I hope you will find some time to create and add your project to the line up!

Memories & More

Here’s something you may not know about me…I was a scrapbooker (and Creative Memories consultant) before I was introduced to Stampin’ Up!  I remember making my first card at a friend’s house and thinking “Where has Stampin’ Up! been all my life?”  I was hooked! I still enjoy scrapbooking but now that my children are older I do not make as many albums as I used to.  I made baby albums, school days albums, birthday albums, etc. (I am sure it will come as no surprise to you that I also made ABC Albums for my kids.) Nowadays I just try to stay up to date on our family album. (The key word here is “try”.) The Memories & More albums, pocket pages, and coordinating packs of cards make it easy to put projects together quickly. The card packs are perfect for cardmaking, memory keeping, or any other project you can dream up. Check out this video to see how easy it is to create with the Memories & More card packs.

Here is a beautiful card I received from Chris R. using the Memories & More cards.

Card created using the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack by Stampin Up. For more ideas and supplies visit my blog www.juststampin.com
Card Created by Chris R.

She wrote, “These Memories & More cards are so fun to play with! I had to make you one!” I am so glad she did! I love and appreciate it! Chris used the different size cards in the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack and layered them for a quick & easy card that’s just beautiful! She used the coordinating Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack to decorate the envelope.

I admit these cards were something I just skipped over in the catalog (pages 190 – 194) until now. You can bet these cards will be on my next order! Click on the links below to see all the card designs in each pack as well as lots of ideas. (FYI…the photos in the catalog do not do them justice! When viewing from the links below make sure to enlarge the photo and also click the arrow button to see all the cool ideas using the cards in each pack. It’s what sold me on them!)

Get Ready to Have Fun with Color!

I’m getting ready to head back to school in a couple of weeks so I am planning ahead. (I know those little 4 year olds will wear me out the first few weeks!) I can’t wait to share some fun Back to School projects I have planned for you. I’m also getting ready for my next ABC Series…ABC Color!

Because I want you to be prepared for what lies ahead, I am offering an item that you will not only want but also NEED TO HAVE! People often ask me about color combinations and where I get my inspiration. I get color inspiration everywhere (shopping for clothes, looking through catalogs and magazines, Home Decor items, etc. ); however, there is one thing that I keep in my craft room and use all the time…my cardstock color swatches.

To order Stampin' Up! Color Swatch book visit www.juststampin.com. This great tool will help you with color coordination.

This stack of color is my “go to” when I’m looking for colors to combine. I can fan them out and try different colors together to see how I like them. It makes my color selections simple. I have all 50 Stampin’ Up! colors on a ring with dividers by collections. Each piece of cardstock is individually labeled with the color, collection, and item number for easy reference. If you are a demonstrator, this is a perfect way to show all of our paper!

To order Stampin' Up! Color Swatch book visit www.juststampin.com. This great tool will help you with color coordination.

The cost is just $7.50 (plus $3.00 Shipping & Handling). Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Color Swatch” in the subject if you wish to purchase. Include your shipping address and preferred email and I will send you a PayPal invoice.  Buy one for yourself and one for a friend! Then, watch for my next ABC series with color and I will share how to build your own color inspiration combinations!!!

My color swatch ring fits perfectly in this Stampin’ Up! stamp case. This case stacks perfectly with standard stamp cases so you can keep everything organized together!

If you would like to add this storage case to your Color Swatch order it’s just $1.50 more.

Order NOW, you’ll thank me later!

Have you checked out the Tic Tac Toe Challenge this week? It’s fun and easy to create with these boards.  Give it a try! Hurry…you need to get it in today!

Just Peachy!

It seems my weekend was all about food…a crab fest, cupcakes, and peaches! Yesterday my daughter and I went to the annual Peach Festival in town. There’s nothing like fresh fruit when it’s in season…sweet and delicious!

img_6266

Today’s card is just peachy! I made it for a friend who could use a little pick me up.  I thought I’d drop it off with some fresh peaches to brighten her day.

Simple card made with Stampin Up Lovely Words Thinlits Dies and Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. For directions, supplies, and inspiration visit www.juststampin.com

The DSP is from a Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and it’s just as sweet as those peaches!

DSP Whole Lot of Lovely

This is another one of those “formula” cards that’s quick & easy to put together. I cut my card base 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it at 5 1/2. The DSP layer measures 3 1/2 x 5 with a mat that’s just 1/8 larger at 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I like the way the ribbon looks like it is “hugging” the card. (At least that’s what I imagined and wanted to convey!) The sentiment is cut from the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies.  I have used the dies in this set a lot and find they are very versatile. I love that I can snip them out (like I did on this card) or just die cut the shape and layer it with paper behind it.

My card wouldn’t be complete without an envelope to coordinate.

I goes great with the basket of peaches.  You can really see how realistic the Designer Series Paper looks!

I also needed a thank you card so while I had my paper out I just cut for two! (I do that a lot!)  I changed it up a bit and used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ribbon instead of Tranquil Tide.  I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to layer the sentiment.

I’m glad I came home with a lot of peaches yesterday because I seem to be giving them away faster than I can make peach cobbler! Here’s both cards side by side. Do you have a preference?

Stamp Set: So Many Shells (sentiment) Papers: Pool Party, Tranquil Tide, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White  Ink: Peekaboo Peach  Tools & Accessories: Lovely Words Thinlits Dies, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits,  1/2″ Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon, 3/8″ Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon (retired)
