Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of the participants in the list below my signature) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by other demonstrators who also earned the Stampin’ Up!® Greek Isles incentive trip that will take place this July 2019.

I’m giddy because my sister and I leave for this trip in just two weeks!!! I can’t believe this fabulous dream-come-true trip that I earned just sharing what I love is almost here!

This is the swap card I’ll be bringing with me. It’s an arrow fold card.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I learned how to make these arrow fold cards last month and adapted the measurements to work with our A2-size envelopes, I’ve already made a few different ones with our new products. Click here to see the one I made with the Magnolia Lane Suite of products. And click here to see the one I made with the Garden Lane Designer Paper and Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set.

I love this sentiment in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and felt that it went well with this card design. Plus sad to say, but I’m in need of sympathy cards lately.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s a pretty easy card to make as long as you can measure and fold accurately. Here are the details if you would like to give this arrow fold card a try.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock
    • 5” x 4”
  • Mosaic Mood Designer Paper
    • 4-1/2” x 3-3/4”
    • Scrap for fussy-cutting the flowers and leaves
  • Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon
    • About 8″

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Mark the bottom front of the folded horizontal Very Vanilla card base at 2-3/4″. Mark each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″.
  • Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the 2-1/8″ marks with score lines. Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the upper corners with score lines.
  • This card is harder to explain with just written directions, so I encourage you to watch my video that I made for the Magnolia version of this card to catch all the tips and directions for making an arrow fold card.
  • Fold the outer score lines forward. Then fold the inner score lines backward to create the arrow. Use a Bone Folder to make the crease lines crisp. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded over sections of the arrow in place.
  • Mark the bottom of the Terracotta Tile Cardstock in the middle at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the front sections of the card base.
  • Mark the bottom of the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper in the middle at 2-1/4″. Cut from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the Terracotta Tile sections of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card.
  • Fussy-cut the flower and leaves and adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  • Tie the bow and add below the flower with a Glue Dot.

The May 2019 Hugs From Shelli Pumpkin kit. #onestopbox #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I shared a 12×12 scrapbook page layout and how to double the cards in your kit just by adding a pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes on May 21st. And my son, Nick and I shared a couple more cards with this kit yesterday.

Today I have a sweet gift box made from one of the note cards and a gratitude book made from eight pretty kit envelopes.

Both of these are super easy to make and only require a few extra tools and supplies.

GIFT BOX

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements for the box…

  • Blue note card from the kit
  • Pretty Peacock velvet ribbon from the kit
    • About 10″

Directions…

Position the open blue note card (print side up) horizontally with the solid blue to the right and the printed blue to the left. Then score vertically at 1/2″, 2″, 3-1/2″ (the score line already there), and 5″. Then trim off the last 1/2″ (at the 6-1/2″ mark). Now rotate a quarter turn to the note card is vertical and score 1-1/2″ in from each side. With the floral print up, cut along the bottom three horizonal score line on each side up to the vertical score lines. The cover of the box will be formed by the portion above the last cuts. So reduce the sides by one inch. Then trim from the top down the small vertical score lines just to the the horizonal score line. Angle cut the sides of the two outer tabs.

Bring the bottom sides of the box together and adhere. Then bring the top tabs in to connect to the front flap to create to cover/lid. Do the adhering of the cover/lid with Glue Dots with the box is in a closed position.

Fill with treats. And add a bow.

I made my bow by following the directions in this video and wrapping it around my two fingers. This way I was able to keep only the velvet side of he ribbon showing. 😊

GRATITUDE BOOK

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements for the book…

  • 8 envelopes from the kit (2 of each print)
  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • 7 pieces that are 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Pretty Peacock velvet ribbon from the kit

Directions…

Fold the envelope flaps the opposite way…backward. Connect the envelopes initially by sliding the flap of one into the inside of another and make sure they are all in the order you want them.

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to order products early. So of course I’ve been having a blast playing around with my new goodies.

The card I’m sharing today is one that I mailed out to a few achieving demonstrators in my group. I’m in love with it! AND…it’s quite simple to make. I used new products from the Bird Ballad Suite: the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards, the Bird Ballad Designer Paper, and the Free As A Bird Stamp Set and coordinating Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store. Again many of the products are not available quite yet. Those links will not work until June 4.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting 2-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting inside sentiment 1-3/4″ x 7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece

Directions…

  • Stamp sentiments onto Very Vanilla pieces. Die-cut the inside sentiment. Trim the end of the outside sentiment strip.
  • After all pieces are die-cut (using the dies listed in the measurements section above), attach the designer paper to the Basic Black layer using SNAIL. Then attach the outside sentiment strip using a Dimensional at the “banner-cut” end and SNAIL at the other end. Trim up off the excess Very Vanilla that extends beyond the layered Nested Labels.
  • Add SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the large Very Vanilla 2-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece keeping the adhesive at least 1/4″ away from the outside edges. Open up the card and attach this piece so it is centered and straight. (Do not worry about the adhesive showing through on the front side. It will be covered by the front layered piece.)
  • Attach the layered piece to the front of the laser-cut card using more SNAIL.
  • Tie then add the bow to the front with a Glue Dot.

Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available.

Then scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned at the beginning of my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations.

Measurements for the two monster bookmarks:

  • Gray Granite Cardstock
    • 3-1/2” x 3-1/2” then cut at the diagonal (only need one)
    • Scrap for punching one ¾” circle
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock

THE ROSE CORNER BOOKMARK

I share two versions of the monsters and share three other bookmarks.

Tips for this one:

  • Use the same measurements above. The printed floral paper in the kit is what I used for the main design. I just cut it to 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″, cut it diagonally to get my piece, and then stamped the leaves. I cut my leaf stamp to get just one leaf! (Yep!! It sounds crazy, but I did. And then when I want to stamp the three leaves together another time I just mount my two stamps together on the block.) I punched the top corner with the Detailed Trio Punch and tied some twine through.

 

THE RECTANGULAR BOOKMARK

Tips for this one:

  • I stamped the rectangular piece the same way I stamped it for my kit card. I added the sentiment image, added the enamel dots, and then punched the top with the Detailed Trio Punch. I added the Mint Textile Ribbon and tied it together tight with some twine.

Tips for this one:

  • I stamped my two label pieces…The sentiment one also has some really light (stamped off twice) Mint Macaron leaves. The floral side has two punched out Flirty Flamingo flowers added with Glue Dots over the top of the leaves. I attached these finished labels to the Silver Foil scallop circle pieces. Then I sandwiched the end of the Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon between the two labels using Tear & Tape Adhesive.

 

I hope you enjoyed what I shared today!

The New 2019-20 Annual Catalog!! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to order products early. And those that attend OnStage (Stampin’ Up!’s convention) events get to order even earlier.

Many of us just returned from the April 2019 OnStage where the new products from the 2019-20 Annual Catalog were revealed. I overnighted my preorder, and it just arrived 6 hours ago. SO FUN!!!

I haven’t had a lot of time to play with much it yet, but I finished my make-n-takes with some extra new products we were gifted at OnStage. Here are images of the make-n-takes the way we were supposed to make them.

Having a blast at Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage in Minneapolis, MN – Goodies I took home! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I only did two as intended: the bird’s nest card from the upcoming May Paper Pumpkin kit & the birds on a branch card from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set and Bird Ballad Designer Paper. So pretty, right?!

Having a blast at Stampin’ Up!’s April 2019 OnStage in Minneapolis, MN! Click here to see my versions of the make-n-takes. #OnStage2019 #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Because of the suggestion from Amanda Martin while we were working on these cards at OnStage, I punched out a section of this Bird Ballad Designer Paper before finishing my card above.

Then I brought it home and added it to a Whisper White card base along with the pink flowers from the other make-n-take card which I altered a LOT. Both of these cards below used the supplies from the Perennial Essence Suite make-n-take: the Floral Essence Stamp Set, the Perennial Flower Punch, the Perennial Essence Designer Paper, the Perennial Essence Vellum, and the Perennial Essence Floral Centers.

I didn’t do the next make-n-take as is either, because I received the It Starts With Art Stamp Set as a product gift. And someone at my table (Amanda?) gave me their make-n-take packet (so I had an extra pieces). That fun Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon is carrying over into the new catalog. So I used that along with the Follow Your Art Designer Paper, the It Starts With Art Stamp Set, a little extra cardstock, and Rhinestones to complete these two cards. Gotta love that sentiment: “Follow your art.”

These last two I made with the make-n-takes supplies from the Come Sail Away Suite and a little extra cardstock: a Crumb Cake card base and some Basic Black. The Sailing Home Stamp Set is amazing and includes some wonderful sentiments. I have a feeling it will be pretty popular. The Sail Away Trinkets are adorable. And the Come Sail Away Designer Paper is both beautiful AND handsome!

I shared several photos including product and sample display boards yesterday, on my April 15th post. But here are a few more photos from OnStage April 2019. It truly IS an amazing experience to be at one of these events!

Besides all the ideas with new products that we get to create with, that are on display, and that are demonstrated…

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS

Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.

If you wish to recreate these with your kit contents, follow the measurements and tips below.

Measurements of extra products:

  • Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon:
    • 10″ for the card
    • What you’d need for wrapping your gift for the tag

Measurements of kit products:

  • Smoky Slate striped card base:
    • 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ (a card base cut in half) for the tag
    • 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ square cut from white label piece for the tag

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used:  See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • For the card, attach either the “stacked presents” or “layered cake” insert to the inside of the smoky slate card base so the white side is face up. BUT FIRST…stamp the confetti image in VersaMark ink, add the Silver Emboss Powder, and heat emboss.
  • Add bows with rhinestones to each tier.
  • Cover the exclamation point in the sentiment image with washi or masking tape. Ink stamp with VersaMark ink, then remove the tape. Flip a Daffodil Delight scalloped banner piece over and stamp sentiment (making sure to leave room for the number 2). Then emboss with silver powder.
  • Ink surface of the “2” with VersaMark ink, add silver powder, and emboss. (You may have to do half of the number first, and then the other half so you have something to hold onto with a wooden skewer while heating.) Then add a second layer so the print of the paper doesn’t show through.
  • Tie on the ribbon and attach to the front of the card with Dimensionals. Adhere the “2.”
  • For the tag, punch a hole in the top for the ribbon.
  • On the inside stamp the confetti image in VersaMark ink, add the Silver Emboss Powder, and heat emboss.
  • Add the white square piece on the front with Dimensionals. Then add the bow and a rhinestone.
  • Tie ribbon around your gift (mine is the beautiful Memories & More photo album), and add the tag.
