A Whale of a Good Time!

My June 22nd Make It with Mary Monday was a "Whale of a Good Time". I demonstrated an easy fun fold card showcasing the fabulous products from Stampin' Up!'s new Whale of a Time Suite - Whale Done Stamp Set, Whale Builder Punch, colorful Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper, and pretty, iridescent sequins. These card are a great way to let someone know they are a BIG deal to you. This products suite includes greetings for love, friendship, and birthdays. 

 

My first card made with the Whale Done Bundle.

Tuesday Tip - Ink Refill Bottles

Stamping and paper crafting is what I do. It started as a hobby and is now my job and my passion. And yes, I have LOTS of supplies to keep me creating and sharing everyday including ink pads and refills in all Stampin' Up! colors. I find that being organized and having all my basic supplies within reach of my work space allows me to use my time more efficiently, thus getting more stamping and crafting in. It's worth it to do little things now that will  save me time and frustration later. Today's Tuesday Tip is one that helps me in all these ways. I think you will find this tip helpful as well.

Take a look at this quick Tuesday Tip via video demonstration.  This tip will make identifying ink refill bottles quick and easy so that you aren't wasting time searching for the one you need when you need it. 

Here's a look at some of my ink refill bottles with color labels from coordinating ink pads adhered.

CASE-ing the SU! Catalog

The Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Catalog isn't just filled with wonderful stamping and paper crafting products. It's also filled with loads of creative inspiration. This week, with the help of my friend and fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Brenda Quintana's CASE-ing Tuesday, I created great cards with a card sketch Brenda pulled from a catalog card sample. Get all the details in this June 16th Facebook Live video replay. I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper in my demonstration. I also showed another card with the same card sketch but made with the gorgeous Peony Garden Suite. Enjoy the video demonstration.CASE-ing Tuesday

Color Combinations You Never Thought Of

If you're like many people, color combinations can be difficult. This is one of the biggest stumbling blocks I see in many stampers and crafts. It sure was me for a looooong time. A Color Coach is a very useful tool, and I'm grateful that Stampin' Up! has a downloadable PDF Color Coach available to demonstrators to share with our customers and viewers. It contains 3 different color combinations for each of our core colors and for each of our current In Colors as well. 

In the following FB Live video replay, I show you how to cut and assemble your Stampin' Up! Color Coach once you've printed the PDF's. I also demonstrate how I use mine in designing cards, etc. This wonderful resource opens up a whole new world of color combinations for you to do your best creating.

There are 2 parts to the SU! Color Coach, thus 2 PDF's. The first is for all our current Core Colors including all the Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles. The second PDF is for the 2019-2021 In Colors and the 2020-2022 In Colors.

Paper Piecing with Tropical Oasis DSP

Paper Piecing so much fun. It's very easy to do and takes your card making to a whole new level, plus it gives us another way to use our beautiful Designer Series Papers that we've collected. In today's cards, I used Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper for my Paper Piecing cards below. I love the tropical prints of the little girls' dresses! 

If you'd like to see my recent demonstration on the Paper Piecing Technique, check out the post by clicking here.

Sponging Technique with Feels Like Frost DSP

Having grown up in the Cleveland, Ohio area enjoying Lake Erie in the summer and lake effect snow in winter, I love a good snowfall and always dream of a white Christmas! No school snow days were a big deal...even for my dad who was a high school teacher. Dad would even flood our back yard in the winter making a skating rink for us. We'd spend our winter days skating and playing outside making snow forts, snowmen, and snow angels. I still make a pretty darn good snow angel...just sayin. Fortunately, my own kids loved snow days as much as I did growing up...sledding was there favorite snowy day activity. I remember calling their snow days from school, "drop everything & play days" because that's what we did. 

I made this card with all those snowy day memories in mind.

You can download a free project sheet to make this card too. Download Project Sheet - Free Skate meets Feels Like Frost DSP.

I've also included a link to a previous post where I demonstrated making this card using the Sponging Technique so be sure to check that out as well. http://bit.ly/2XafSmH
