Who do you craft with?

#loveitliveitshareit

Stampin' Up! is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. One of the ways we are celebrating as a company is with the theme "Love it. Live it. Share it." I'm blessed to be able to do all of these things nearly everyday in my job as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Some of these days involve more of the "share it" making these days extra special. Today was one such day. 

I spent the morning with one of my favorite "littles". Ainsley is on spring break from school, so she stayed with me while her mommy went to her little brother Ben's and Griffin's "Spring Hat Parade" at their preschool. I'm not sure who had more fun, them or us.

Our morning started with a yummy yogurt snack Ainsley brought for us. We chatted and planned our craft project for the day. We decided we'd make an Easter banner for her family since theirs kept falling down. Lol. She keeps it real! Their banner says "Happy Easter" so ours needed say something different.  We chose our colors, got out our tools and supplies, and got right to work. Of course, to us it doesn't really feel like work when we are having so much fun doing something we love. PS...We did have to text Ainsley's mommy to tell her not to pick her up too soon. 

Take a look at a few of the pictures from our time together and the banner we made. I think you're going to like it and what it says. Ainsley was very excited to hang her Easter banner up at home to surprise her dad and her brothers.

The Easter banner is now hung up (and it's not falling down). Ainsley looks so happy and proud in this picture her mom sent me. I'm sure 4 year old Ben and Griffin will be excited to see it!

Blossoming Basket Bundle

Make beautiful cards with the Blossoming Basket Bundle. Your cards are sure to be viewed as works of heart perfect for sending heartfelt thoughts for any occasion. Here is one I made with Easter in mind, however, I think it could be used for many occasions including birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, congratulations, and more. There's so much detail in the stamp images which seem to come to life when they are embossed and colored. The Copper Embossing Powder and layers of Copper Foil Sheets with the Blushing Bride card stock make for an elegant and rich color combination. The Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder adds an authentic-looking basket weave texture to the card as well. 

The Blossoming Basket Bundle can be yours with a Stampin' Up! order of $100 or more. It's beautiful. It's fun. It's versatile. It's definitely a great Sale-A-Bration choice with your qualifying purchase. Sale-A-Bration ends March 31st, so act quickly if you still have Sale-A-Bration items you want to get.

Eclectic Expressions CASE'd

Tracy Dahling, a 6-year Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and Merry Stampers Team Member, made me the following card. Tracy's color combination of Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, and Berry Burst is one I'm sure I would not have thought of on my own, but I think it's great. I used Tracy's card as the inspiration for my card shown in the second photo. The stamp set used in both cards is Eclectic Expressions.

Tracy and I both received the Eclectic Expression stamp set free with a $50 purchase. You too can get this stamp set or choose from many other awesome exclusive Sale-A-Bration products. Don't delay, though, as Sale-A-Bration ends in just 3 weeks. I like to use this time of year to stock up on staples for my paper crafting including card stock, embellishments, and adhesives. It's also common for customers to purchase high-priced items on their wish list during Sale-A-Bration. Some of these wish list items may include the more expensive stamp sets and bundles, the complete set of Stampin' Write Markers or our alcohol-based markers Stampin' Blends. Perhaps you need a new Trimmer or the Color Caddy to organize and store all your ink pads and refills. Let's not forget the Big Shot and it's many accessories. Whatever you choose, remember that you can choose any Level 1 product with each and every purchase. New this year, we also have Level 2 products you can choose for a $100 purchase. Contact me or place your order online with Host Code DEZHGM2S at www.maryknabe.stampinup.net.

Sunshine & Rainbows

IMG_4890

Today, I'm featuring a card created by my friend Jackie Mayer. Jackie was a loooooong time customer and stamp club member and is now on my Stampin' Up! team. Take a look at this sunny card Jackie created for me. I love it. I have to be honest and say I thought this stamp set and framelit bundle was cute, but wasn't at the top of my "must have" list. Jackie may changed my mind about that with this card!

As I sat down to write this post, the sun has come up and is now shining brightly in a beautiful blue sky! It's going to be a bright, sunny weekend here in southern Ohio after many rainy, gloomy days. Today, feels like the perfect time to share this card. Thanks, Jackie, for gifting me this card. By the way, another shout out to Jackie who can makes me see the bright side of things and make my own sunshine when life looks gloomy. Your friendship is a blessing to me.

Take a close up look at a few of the details in this card.

Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle by Stampin' Up!
Notice how the rainbow is both in front of and behind the layers of clouds. Jackie also added some shimmer to the clouds with Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.
Sunshine & Rainbows Bundle by Stampin' Up!
I love the stitched detail on the oval and Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon used as an embellishment behind the sentiment.

Birthday Wishes for You!

Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set + Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper = 1 fantastic birthday card. If you love bright colors and fun party patterns, the Picture Perfect Party 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper is for you! It is paired with the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog (pg. 5). I, however, decided to pair it with the Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set on page 3 of the Occasions Catalog. I think this birthday card is fabulous and fun! Of course, the Lemon Lime Twist card stock is a great base color and really stands out against the black card stock.

Keep in mind that Sale-A-Bration, Stampin' Up!'s biggest annual promotion is going on right now through March 31st. We have special incentives for ordering, hosting, and joining. Details can be found at www.maryknabe.stampinup.net. Products used in making this fun birthday card are posted below. You may wish to choose the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes as your choice for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product. They coordinate with the Tutti-Frutti Suite but also the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper in the Occasions Catalog.

IMG_4697Dimensions:  Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" with 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White on the inside for writing on. Lemon Lime Twist card stock is 5 1/4" x 4" with 5 1/4" x 1" strip of Picture Perfect Party DSP. Almost all of the prints in this DSP would work well here. The Whisper White card stock for stamping on is 3" x 4 1/4" and layered on top of 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" Basic Black card stock after stamping.  

Tips:  Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in Basic Black Archival Ink. Fill in 'Birthday' using Pool Party Ink Refill and a Blender Pen. Adhere to center of card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. Stamp 'HAPPY' by inking up just that portion of the stamp and stamp on Berry Burst card stock scrap. Fussy cut with Paper Snips and attach to card front (over original stamping) with Glue Dots. Stamp 'with many wishes just for you' in Basic Black Ink on Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Fussy cut with Paper Snips and adhere to card front with Glue Dots. Embellish with Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

More Heartfelt Blooms

If you don't have Stampin' Up!'s new DistINKtive stamp set, you are missing out. This new type of stamp is patent pending! What an exciting thing for Stampin' Up! Our DistINKtive stamp is designed to give you a photo realistic stamped image. The detail in this floral image is truly amazing and so beautiful to look at, and it's simple to stamp too! Get the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set FREE with a qualifying order using my Host Code SK6JSEK6 on my website.

Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set
This is what I call a Tone on Tone card using Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant card stock and ink pads. I had the opportunity to swap this card at a recent Leadership Event I attended with 80+ other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. Swapping cards is always a fun exchange of creativity and friendship, one of the special benefits of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set

I used Sahara Sand and Basic Black card stock and ink pads for this Heartfelt Blooms card. Sometimes less is more, and simple is elegant. This card is a good example of a KISS & SIP card - Keep It Simple Stamping with Stamps, Ink, and Paper. 

I love thee "Sending Heartfelt Thoughts" sentiment. It has so many uses including sympathy, thinking of you, loving thoughts, etc. 

If you like these cards, be sure to take a look at my February 8, 2018 post which includes a video and free tutorial for several more cards and projects featuring the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.
