One phenomenal bundle, 2 gorgeous projects.

Welcome to THE GLITTER QUEENS FIRST FRIDAYS BLOG HOP! This phenomenal group of Stampin Up! demonstrators have come up with a theme for this month & it is to show YOU just how amazing & versatile one bundle can be!! The bundle I’ve chosen to use is the stamp set COLORFUL SEASONS along with the SEASONAL LAYERS thinlits. 20170705_092319With this bundle, you can really let your creative juices flow!!

Two different cards, one amazing bundle! Just look at these beautiful cards!! I’m so pleased with how these cards came out.

The first card is using cooper foil paper to highlight & create a two dimensional leaf.

Do you see the stitching around the little white square?  That added piece of texture gives this card a little added flair without distracting from the focal point…the COPPER LEAF.

Copper foil paper & cooper thread give an amazing elegance to these cards. And ribbon! What card isn’t complete with out an amazing embellishment?!? Ribbon is like  mascara…the look isn’t complete with out your mascara.

The second card is all about the Cherry Blossom.

I created a water color wash using ink refills and the AQUAPAINTER for the background on the cherry blossom card.

Having the GLOSSY WHITE paper back really made this technique fun & easy!!

I gave these cards some added bling with rhinestones on one & pearls on the other.  These cards had the ‘lipstick’ for your outfit.

Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day

Hi stamping friends, my card today is created with Stampin Up Mixed Drinks for Father’s Day.

I’m quite excited that the Mixed Drinks stamp set is staying in the New Catalogue as I purchased it a bit ago and have not had time to play with it yet…until today of course. 

I decided to make “background noise” or “wallpaper” with the main stamp element to add cohesiveness to the card.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for my art piece and mat for a little definition around the main element.

The art piece is attached to the front using dimensionals.  This gives a great height element to the card. Then I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and Heat set it white embossing powder so that it POPPED off the basic black

TRY THIS – Two Step Stamping – fastest way EVER to fill a beer  haha…. Stamp the mug in Basic Black.Stamp the “beer” in Crushed Curry right over the mug to fill it. 

I also used the Fine Tip Glue Pen on the mug to give it a subtle glossy effect.

I hope you enjoy this card & have an amazing Father’s Day.

Did you know every year there is one stamp set featured on the inside back cover where for every purchase made during the year, Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)?

This year, the stamp set is called Sharing Sweet Thoughts AND coordinates with the jar framelits! What do you think?

Conditioning Photopolymer Stamps

Welcome to another edition of TUESDAY TIPS…a day when provide you with a hint or a tip that I hope will improve your crafting experience. Here’s a picture tutorial on how to “pre-treat” your new photopolymer stamps to get them stampin well when you first start using them.

20170606_123048.jpg

There’s 2 ways – either will work…and with amazing!!!
1) Clean them first with your stampin mist and stampin scrub pad really well

20170606_123138

2) “Kiss” them with versamark by inking in versamark and wiping it on your hand (don’t worry, you can wash your hands later) but don’t use tissue or wipes as that makes the stamp fuzzy or wipes too much off

The pictures show a remarkable difference! It’s pretty amazing! I hope this will help you condition your stamps for happy crafting!!! #TUESDAYTIPS

Storing Framelits & Thinlets

Hello there friends! I had not realized how long it’s been since I’ve blogged. Welcome to another edition of TUESDAY TIPS…a day when I provide you with a hint or a tip that I hope will improve your crafting experience.

Today I’m sharing how I store my framelits & thinlits. Since I don’t have a separate craft room, I share our dining room table with my fiance…his office, my craft table…I have very limited storage space. I had to be creative with storing my dies. Plus I hated having my hands full with all the inks, markers, stamps, framelits, paper & big shot…or making multiple trips…to gather everything before I was ready to create. Last week I showed you how to remove the framelits from the original packaging, so this is the second step to stay organized!

20170606_081653.jpg

Craft stores sell magnetic sheets, of different sizes, that work perfect for what I wanted to do!! I buy the roll because for about $5 I get 10 sheets for my framelits. Once I’ve cut down the roll to, I place the framelits on the sheets. The best part is those magnetic sheets fit PERFECTLY in the stamp case.

20170606_081710.jpg

This allows me too store the framelits/thinlits with the matching stamps!!! How cool is that?!? No more searching, no more multiple trips…it’s all right there!!!

20170606_081721.jpg

I even did this for the Layering Circles, squares, ovals…etc. I am able to get 6 thinlits in the stamp case! WAY easier to store & if I want a regular square & a stitched square to layer I have it all there!!!

Well, that’s it. A great way to store your framelits. I hope this helps you just as it had helped me.
