Lovin’ The New Varied Vases Set

Varied Vases will be one of the new stamp sets offered in the upcoming 2018-19 Annual Catalog. At this time only those demonstrators that attended OnStage had the opportunity to purchase this set (and it’s coordinating punch) early. So I played around with the stamp set this weekend after being inspired by what the stamp set designer, million dollar achieving demonstrator, Mary Fish shared on her blog. And here is my first card. I love it!

I loved the look of the overlapping images of the vases and the Whisper White layer on Whisper White card base that Mary had done…such a clean design. I wanted to keep the sentiment pretty easy though, so didn’t do any embossing on mine.

Here is one more version using a different sentiment from the set and sequins instead of rhinestones.

Measurements:

  • Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ folded in half at 4-1/4″ for the card base & 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
  • Pineapple Punch cardstock: strip that is 3/4″ wide
  • Coastal Cabana cardstock: strip that is 1/2″ wide

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Helpful Tips:

  • Trim the left end of the Coastal Cabana cardstock strip and the Pineapple Punch strip to create the look of a banner.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the Pineapple Punch strip.
  • Attach this to the Coastal Cabana strip and then attach to the 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ Whisper White piece about one inch from the top. Trim off any excess extending off the the right edge.
  • Stamp the vase, flower and leaf images. (The short vase is a lighter shade of Grapefruit Grove ink than the flowers because I stamped onto scrap paper first.)
  • Attach stamped layer to the card base with Dimensionals.
  • Then embellish with either Rhinestones or sequins.

June 1st is the magic day! And there are many other fabulous products that will also become available from the new catalog that day. I’ve been pinning some fun card ideas on Pinterest!

If you absolutely can’t wait until June, consider purchasing the Starter Kit so you can get in on the demonstrator perk of purchasing early. (Yep! All demonstrators get to preorder new products in May!)

New Products – OnStage Make-n-Take Cards

I was scrolling through my photos and realized yesterday that I forgot to share the fabulous make-n-takes we got to make at OnStage. Here are the 4 cards I put together at OnStage Local in Hartford, CT on the April 7th.

I typically change the intended cards/projects a bit when I put mine together which is what I did again this time. Here is my version of what we were to make with the Detailed With Love stamp set and the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.

Make-n-Takes from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage April 2018, Hartford CT....#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This one I altered slightly, too. This card features the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper, the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, and the Love What You Do Stamp Set.

We were able to play with so many wonderful products. But this one I saved to finish at home because I wanted to use extra Blends Markers to complete it. You are going to love all the new papers coming including this Graceful Glass Designer Vellum which coordinates with the Painted Glass Stamp Set (also used on the card).

This last one we made with the Nature’s Poem Designer Paper and what will probably be my very favorite stamp set, Rooted In Nature. I didn’t change the the make-n-take design at all for this card.

The kids are home today because Mother Nature dumped a couple feet of snow on us over the entire weekend, and the school district decided that there was just too much of it. The snow started falling Saturday morning and didn’t stop until early this morning…almost 48 hours of it. I took this photo of my husband in our driveway early Sunday morning when it was a foot high. This was only about half of what we got!

Mid-April 2018 and it feels like mid-January....#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

He had gone out for groceries (bless his heart) at the start of the storm on Saturday. We are pretty thankful to have food, shelter… and a snowblower! And the boys are loving that they have one less day of school this week.

I’m the Guest! – Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Rachel Tessman…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I am very honored once again to be the special guest for the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! Each person participating in this hop found a project from my blog and used it for inspiration to create something of their own. In the paper crafters’ world we call this CASEing. In this hop CASE stands for “Copy And Selectively Edit.” Although you may have also heard it defined as “Copy And Share Everything/Everywhere.” I am also participating by CASEing a couple of my own past projects!

I wanted to show a couple fun ideas that could be created with our soon-to-be-retiring Tutti Frutti 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper. I first decided to CASE these cards that were featured in my February 21, 2017 post,…

I CASEd these cards and made some super “sweet” cards with the Fruit Basket stamp set, Tutti Frutti designer paper and the Metallic Foil Doilies – all retiring soon. Click here for more information…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…because I really think the designer paper patterns in this pack are fun and can take over a whole card.

I really wanted to make the sentiment piece pop, so I added Mini Dimensionals under the Whisper White circle and under the fruit. And because I cut my paper from a 6″ x 6″ piece, I had a 1-3/4″ wide strip left. So I added that to the inside of the card.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock:
    • 11” x 4-1/4” scored and folded in half at 5-1/2” and a scraps for stamping and punching out the sentiment piece and the fruit.
  • Designer Paper:
    • 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for the outside 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ for the inside.

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Tips/Directions:

  • Attach the designer paper to the card front.
  • Stamp the sentiment image/s on the Whisper White scrap. (I “stamped off” to get lighter shades of ink for my fruit. Some call this “second generation” stamping.)
  • Punch the sentiment image with the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch.
  • Stamp the extra fruit. Punch the extra fruit with the coordinating punch from the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack. (The stamp images are larger than what will punch. This is so that you will have no white edges on your punched out pieces.)
  • Adhere the extra fruit with a Mini Dimensional. Adhere the Whisper White circle to the Metallic Foil Doily using Dimensionals. Then attach this to the front of the card along the right edge, and trim the excess doily away.
  • Attach the designer paper to the inside. And stamp any additional sentiments or images inside.

Here are three other cards.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

6″ x 6″ Designer Paper is perfect for making origami pouches, too. For my second project idea I’m CASEing the pouches that were featured in my May 11, 2017 post. (The directions for the fold can be found there.)

I CASEd these pouches and made some super “sweet” candy holders with the Fruit Basket stamp set, Tutti Frutti designer paper and the Metallic Foil Doilies – all retiring soon. Click here for more information…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

These are much simpler to make than they look. And what a great way to share a fun treat.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock:
    • scrap for stamping and punching out the sentiment piece.
  • Coordinating colored cardstock:
    • scrap for punching out the layer under the sentiment piece.
  • Designer Paper:
    • 6″ x 6″

 

A big thank you to Kylie and all the demonstrators that CASEd me in this hop! I am looking forward to seeing which projects of mine inspired all of them AND what they created. Be sure to visit each of these blogs by clicking on the names below. Have fun and let me know what you think!
