3-2-1 Stamp Wednesday August 3, 2022: Perched In A Tree Card

A new bundle from the July to December Mini Catalogue. The tutorial is below with all the details and measurements.

I took a different turn in designing today’s card. Instead of cutting the aspen tree oval out of solid cardstock, I chose a sheet from the Sale-A-Bration DSP called Rings of Love. I thought the pattern lended itself to looking more like a grove of trees and I liked the natural look to the layer. Below you’ll find links to the tutorial as well as the the August 3rd FaceBook video. Please let me know if you have questions about the project or other Stampin’ Up! questions I can help you with.

3-2-1 Stamp Wednesday July 6, 2022: Christmas in July – Peace to You Card

A new stamp set from the brand new July to December 2022 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue

I know some of you start early on your planning and making your Christmas cards so here is my first Christmas card of the season. This card ended up being my submission for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator card exchange I participated in as well as my card for my Ink and Sparkle Stampers demonstrator team meeting this month. The tutorial is available further down this post and you can take a peek at my FaceBook Live for this card if you’d like as well. I decided to use the Brushstroke Specialty Designer Series paper from the new Annual Catalogue as I suspect it is a easily missed item on page 139. It is as beautiful paper with a slight shimmer to it and I would say it is a bit thinner than other Designer Series Papers. It’s strong enough to take Multipurpose Liquid Glue without buckling and it comes in 3 very pretty colours: Night of Navy, Blushing Bride and Soft Succulent. Take a look see!

The other item I used in today’s project is the Stamparatus. I don’t often say to you that “you need this” but this time I’m going to say it! It allowed me to get a repeated re-inking of the stamp and positioning it perfectly on the card stock. Secondly, if you are doing multiple cards, it is such a time-saver as you change out your card stock and repeatedly get a perfect placement for your stamping on the project. You should definitely add it to an upcoming order if you don’t have one!

3-2-1 Stamp THURSDAY May 19, 2022: Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes

Just add a 1/2 sheet of Sweet Sorbet card stock to a coordinating card base from the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes pack and you’ve got a stepped up but still super quick card!

Today’s 3-2-1 Stamp is a day late … sorry about that! Are you feeling like me and in need of a holiday? The reason for the late post: For my husband and I, we’ve been working through lots of details selling a rental property we have – I’m in need of some Stampin’ Up! stress-relieving card making and well … the holiday will come soon hopefully!

This card started out as a card base in the beautiful Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes pack. If you use the card bases and beautifully pre-decorated envelopes just as they come, they are gorgeous — there are 5 colours of card bases that correspond to the. brand new 2022-2024 In Colors that debuted in the 2022-23 Stampin’ Up! catalogue. They are so much more beautiful in person — such clear, saturated colours — you’ve got to come see them at my class and get some of these in your own hands!

Here is are the supplies that started out as a pre-printed March 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit (as of the time posting today, I’ve got 2 more refill kits from this Paper Pumpkin at $15 each if you’d like one for yourself or a friend. The Refill Kit doesn’t include the stamp or Ink that came with the full kit but has everything else you need!). All I added to the kit supplies was my brand new In-Color Stampin’ Write Markers and a half sheet of the Orchid Oasis (another one of the 2022-2024 In-Colors) card stock.

Here is what I did with the above supplies:

Sample #2 Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes

One last example from the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes: this is the one we made at my Ink and Sparkle Stamping Team Get-Together May 14th:

Sample #3 Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes
