Hybrid Embossing Folder? What's That?

Have you heard about a new category of Embossing Folder? Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Hybrid Embossing Folder. A hybrid embossing folder gives you the luxury of die cutting and embossing in one easy step. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Art in Bloom Bundle which consists of the Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. Note that the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder comes with a set of 9 dies that coordinates with both Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Stamp Set. You can use the dies separately, the embossing folder separately, or use them both together to cut and emboss flowers in just one easy step! Take a look at my demonstration to see just how amazing and versatile this new product is. While the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is the only one of its kind in the annual, you can look forward to another Hybrid Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog which launches August 3rd.

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.

Friendships Refresh The Soul. Isn't that so true? Monday I came up from my Stampin' Peace Studio to make myself lunch and take a break when a dear friend called me. With both of us being so busy, we hadn't talked in about 10 days. We shared, we laughed, we planned. It was great. And 45 minutes later when the call ended, I truly did feel refreshed, full of energy, and ready to carry on with my work day. So back to the Stampin' Peace Studio I headed with a smile on my face and a happy heart. It's amazing what a little dose of friendship and good conversation can do for your spirit. 

Friendship Refreshes The Soul. What a wonderful sentiment to use when reaching out to a friend. This sentiment comes from the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set, part of the fabulous Beauty of the Earth Suite. This product suite has a lovely assortment of coordinating stamps, dies, and designer series papers in gorgeous colors. It's so versatile and can be used throughout the entire year for men and women, young and old. For special occasions and days when you want to send a "just because" card to a friend or loved one.

Here for You Now and Always

So often we are looking for cards of support and encouragement. I love the 2 coordinating sentiments in the Color & Contour Stamp Set - Here for you now ... and in better days ahead. I can think of so many reasons to send this card to various people. People going through an illness or loss or caring for a family member or friend who is ill. People going through separation and divorce. Loss of job. Loss of loved ones. Struggles with depression or anxiety. No matter the reason, I do think this card with this sentiment will bring comfort and smiles.

To help you send love, support, and encouragement, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you for my Free Friday Download.

Happy Birthday from Minnie Mouse

Punch Art is so fun. I'm always in awe of those crafters who can look at a punch and see something completely different than the obvious. Think of the Tulip Punch as the head of a reindeer with antlers from the Sprig Punch. This is just 1 very simple example of Punch Art. Many Punch Artist work is very elaborate with them thinking WAY out of the box with their ordinary shape punches. I'm not in that league, but am certainly intrigued and learning to look at my punches differently.

Tulip Builder Punch & Sprig Punch by Stampin' Up!

Here is another simple but Oh, So Cute, example of Punch Art. You can use circle punches and dies to create Mickey and Minnie silhouettes. Add a die cut bow tie from the Suit & Tie Dies and you have Minnie Mouse's bow!

This is one punch art we ALL can do and is sure to bring smiles to Disney fans from 1 to 101. Click on the following link to download a Free Project Sheet to make this card. Download Project Sheet - Minnie Mouse Birthday Card

Easiest way to use Gilded Leafing

Gilded Leafing can add a dramatic effect to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. There are several different ways to use it from using it with Heat & Stick Powder and Heat Tool to a variety of adhesives. This card shows one of the simplest ways to use Gilded Leafing as an accent or embellishment. Simply lay a strip of Tear & Tape onto card stock where you want to add Gilded Leafing. Remove backing and press down into Gilded Leafing. Remove excess with small brush, sponge, or your finger tip.

To make this card, be sure to download my Free Project Sheet.

Art Gallery Stamp Set & Gilded Leafing by Stampin' Up!

TIP: Gilded Leafing is VERY light & airy. I HIGHLY suggest that you pour the Gilded Leafing from its original jar into a larger plastic container with a lid. The container should be large enough to press your card stock down into.

Here's to Happy Stamping for us all!


Congratulations, Emily!

Two weeks ago, our family celebrated our daughter & sister Emily. Emily and her Doctor of Physical Therapy classmates had their pinning ceremony (postponed from last year due to covid). While only students and staff could be at the in-person event, the rest of us watched virtually. What an exciting time for this class of 2022. Just 3 days later they all completed their 2nd year of DPT school. Now, they enter their 3rd and final year by doing 3 rounds of clinicals. We are so proud of Emily for how hard she has worked and all that she has accomplished and for the all-around good person that she is. 

This is the card I made for Emily to mark this special milestone. It features the beautiful new Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper along with a sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set. You can see the full Hand-Penned Suite Collection on pages 104-105 in our new Annual Catalog.

Free Tutorial with Flowering Cactus Purchase

I love that Stampin' Up! is an expert on coordination - both color coordination and product coordination and theme coordination. It's what first made me fall in love with stamping and all things Stampin' Up!. AND it makes creating so much easier and much more fun. The Flowering Cactus Product Medley is a wonderful collection of coordinating colors, images & sentiments, and high quality products all centered around a Flowering Cactus theme. 

I had no idea when I was first drawn to the Flowering Cactus Medley, that cactus is such a common theme right now. Take a look at some home decor items I found at Ikea and Dollar Tree. Seeing the same themes Stampin' Up! is using when I venture out of my Stampin' Peace Studio tells me that I can count on Stampin' Up! to be up-to-date with the latest trends in not only crafting, but in home decor and fashion too. What and how we craft is often a reflection of how we choose to create in our "adult" life including perhaps, how we decorate and what we wear and do. How cool is that!
