The Come To Gather Designer Series Paper has several versatile designs, but my favorite sheet is this neutral pumpkin piece. I designed a Fall card for my club using it with the Gather Together stamp set.
This sheet is barely visible in the catalog, and I was completely surprised when I opened my paper to check out the designs in person. I love the crooked paper concept and have been wanting to use that layout again recently. Plus, it works great to show off the paper without covering it up too much.
Colors: Pretty Peacock, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, , Mint Macaron, Whisper White.
I love the detail scoring on the matching Gathered Leaves dies. Here’s the inside of the card…why not put another leaf inside!
Time for Christmas card Stamp-A-Stack classes, and my first one used the Brightly Gleaming Suite. I like for the cards to be a matching set, so here are the 3 cards I designed for this class. Each person makes a dozen (4 of each design).
I’m in love with the new metallic ink and especially the copper. I stamped all the ornaments in copper ink and painted some accents using the copper ink refill too. The colors are Pretty Peacock, Mossy Meadow, and Night of Navy. The twine is Mossy Meadow from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack plus some regular Linen Thread on the Pretty Peacock design. Here are close-ups of each design.
I used a Stampin’ Blend to put dots of color on the Vanilla ornaments to add just a little color and interest.
I used everything in this suite except the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder. After the class, I made 8 of each design plus my 2 card samples giving me 10 of each…love that!
Here’s a link to the main products:
I designed this in May for a masculine card option. And, I thought the car image in this Geared Up Garage set would be perfect for the Soot Technique. So glad they carried this over from the previous catalog, since it has several sayings to handle multiple occasions.
Here’s a close up.
The funny thing was, I had just decided to do away with my table cloths on my class tables opting for just cutting mats under our grid paper. So, I told everyone we needed to be a little more careful with tools to protect the table. Then, I said “ok, tonight we are playing with fire and candles”… lol.
I used the Let It Ride stamp set for our technique sample and let the edges catch fire on purpose so it would look like an old western painting.
Stamps & Tools:
I love stamp sets like the Little Elephant that come with a punch! I hadn’t used this one yet, but I’ve had it for a while. I love that the ears can be punched out with the Elephant Builder punch too. The set and punch will carry over into the new catalog in June, but the bundle pricing is only available through June 3rd. I used Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green for this one.
My stamp clubs will make this one this month. You could easily change the green to any color…everything goes good with Night of Navy (LOL).
Tip: Since my Night of Navy was so juicy, I had to scrape some ink over with a popsicle stick to get the detail stitching on the elephants to show (otherwise, they would have come out solid navy).
Welcome to the San Antonio Product Spotlight Presenters Blog Hop. A couple of months ago, Chad Williams from Stampin’ Up! corporate called me to see if I’d do a Product Spotlight Presentation at OnStage in San Antonio for the new Come Sail Away suite. He didn’t tell me what suite I’d have back then, but of course I said yes. Later, we talked a little about the options, and when he mentioned a sailboat themed suite, I got very excited. I grew up sailing and own 2 sailboats, so this suite featuring the Sailing Home stamp set was the perfect choice for me.
I wanted to share a couple of the cards I designed using this awesome suite. I’ll share more designs over the next few weeks plus all the fun photos from OnStage so be sure and subscribe to my blog.
I love that this set can be used for masculine cards, romantic themed projects, and beach themed vacation scrapbooking. Plus, the suite has lots of coordinating products.
My sister snapped a photo of me presenting. It was so fun to share my designs on stage and meet the other presenters.
Here’s my True North card using the painter’s tape technique.
Here’s my Hello Handsome card using the Come Sail Away Memories and More card pack and Come Sail Away designer series paper that coordinate with the Sailing Home stamp set.
My sunset card (Video to follow in a week or two).
And here’s the Make’n’Take we made. Advanced on the left and quick & easy on the right.
Here’s the list of the other presenters, so check out their projects as well:
I also have several other cards I made with this suite including another sunset card with pigments that I’ll post over the next week or two, so subscribe to my blog to get notified when those post. I will also do a video as well to show how to achieve the sunset on the card posted above since several demonstrators have asked for details on that one.
While you’re waiting for the new catalog of goodies, be sure to grab retiring products before they’re out of stock for good. I’ll post the retired list on Monday, April 15th.
I designed this card using the Sale-a-bration set, All Adorned, for my team get together and my clubs this month. Everyone got a chance to play more with the Stamparatus to make the design. It’s so easy to just turn the card stock and stamp each corner exactly the same plus the layered design in the middle. I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape ink together for the main image, and the card base and background are Crumb Cake.
The finishing touches are these Glitter Enamel Dots and the Mini Striped ribbon. There’s only about a week left of Sale-a-bration, so make sure you’ve collected all the free sets you want before the 31st.
