Take An Adventure In The Wild

Let's take an adventure into the wild as I show and tell you what CASEing is. CASE is a term you may have heard me say often. CASE stands for Create And Share Everything. So as we all create and share our projects on social media, we are inviting others in the stamping and paper crafting community to draw inspiration from our projects. We can CASE card layouts, scrapbook layouts, color combinations, stamping techniques, and more. I would encourage all of you then to share what you make. For it is in sharing that we all grow and learn. That is what I love most about being a part of Stampin' Up! and the paper crafting community. We all have something to share, and we all have jf to learn, and together we can enjoy stamping and paper crafting for years to come. 

The Christmas card in the photo below is the one I CASEd to make my two In The Wild birthday cards pictured.Tidings of Christmas Suite & In The Wild Suite by Stampin' Up!

Click here for supply list and cutting dimensions to make the Tidings of Christmas card below.
Tidings of Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

As you can see in the photos below, I kept the same basic layout for each of the two birthday cards but changed up the Designer Series Paper, color combination, die cut label for the sentiments, and added embellishments.

Masking Technique with Delicate Dahlias

Masking isn't just for stepping up your Halloween Costumes. In fact, Masking is the name of the Stamping Technique I demonstrate for you in this video. You will love it. I make it easy with my tips. You'll be amazed at the depth that it creates in your stamping. It's a great technique to use with flowers and groups of images or even to create a scene like the Peaceful Deer standing in front of or behind a tree. So watch, learn, then grab your sticky notes and Paper Snips and get started masking.

Card Dimensions:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Mossy Meadow layer = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

 

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is perfect for demonstrating the Masking Technique. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set I got FREE. You can too when you place a $100 Stampin' Up! order with me by September 30th.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

 All you need to get started masking is some sticky notes and your Paper Snips!
Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

The results you get with the Masking Technique are amazing. The dahlias look more realistic with flowers in front of and behind others and with the stamped leaves behind the flowers.

Did you know you can get the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle FREE?

It's true. When you join my Stampin' Up! community through September 30th, you can choose a Bundle from our Holiday Mini Catalog absolutely FREE. Click on the following link to see all 12 bundle options:  Download FLYER_SAB_JOIN_NA

Now, let's do the math to see your saving when you purchase a Starter Kit. Our Starter Kit is completely 100% customizable and includes $125 in product of your choice! You pay just $99 + sales tax and it all ships to you FREE. So for approximately $107.50 (based on 7.5% sales tax where I live), you'd get $125 chosen by you PLUS a FREE BUNDLE from the Holiday Mini Catalog for an additional savings of $31.50 - $60.25 (depending on the free bundle you choose). WOW!

How much would that all cost you if you don't purchase the Starter Kit??? $125 product cost + $12.50 shipping + $10.31 sales tax (based on 7.5%) for a total of $147.81. That's a HUGE difference, and the total doesn't even include the cost of the additional Bundle that is free for those who join my team.

Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.

Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.
