Stampin' Up! Beautul You Card

  • Beautiful You playing in the surf
  • March 12 class registration closing soon
  • Sale-A-Bration free gifts going fast

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You set

I used one of the pages from the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack that is preprinted with a background that looks like the beach.  Adding images from Beautiful you and Wetlands created a scene of this happy lady playing in the surf.   

I used Aqua painters and ink from the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad to color her dress. This Designer Paper pack includes several different designs that help you create scenes with your stamp sets. 

 I used crumb cake for the base card and Bermuda Bay as the accent color.  The sentiment is from the Wetlands set, as are the birds.    

The sentiment is mounted on a Stitched Shapes Framelits Die Cut. This card is relaxing to look at, I love how it turned out, and it was really fast to make.


Stamp:  Beautiful You, Wetlands
Ink:  Night of Navy, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories:  Stitched Shaped Framelits, Big Shot Platform, Standard Cutting Pads, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Stampin' Scrub, Stampin' Mist, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

    Do you like texture on your greeting cards?

    Here's another card I designed for swaps at Convention...featuring lots of texture.  I love the new Apothecary Accent Framelit dies and the butterfly stamps from Papillon Potpourri (w-123757; c-123759)!

    This card features several easy-to-do textures.  The Early Espresso layer uses the new Core-dinations Card Stock from the Holiday Mini.  Core-dinations Card Stock is sandable card stock that crates an antique, distressed look when sanded.  The inside layer is a monochromatic color.  I sanded my cardstock but you can also reveal the inside layer by tearing or distressing.  The Certainly Celery layer is dry embossed with the Vintage Wallaper Folder (120175).  Both layers only took minutes to create.  The addition of the punched butterflies and the Crochet Trim added more texture to the card. 

    I used the largest of the Layered Labels stamp from the Holiday Mini.  I covered the sentiment in the center with a hand-cut oval and then added punched butterflies using the new Elegant Butterfly Punch (127526).  I stamped the center section of the Layered Labels stamp again and hand cut the oval center and placed it on a banner die cut from the Petal Cone Bigz L die.  (We need an Oval punch that size...hhmmmm... I think I have something for the Stampin' Up! suggestion box).

    New dies; new texture folders, new stamps; new tools -- what's not to love!

    Stamps: Papillon Potpourri (w-123757; c-123759), Layered Labels (C-127072-Holiday Mini)
    Paper:   Certinly Celery; Gumball Green, Early Espresso Core-dinations Card Stock, Very Vinella
    InksSoft Suede
    Accessories:  Apothecary Accent Framelit dies, Oval Accent Bigz Clear (127005), Big Shot Die Cut machine, Petal Cone Bigz L Die (for the banner), Elegant Butterfly Punch (127526), Pearl Basic Jewels (119247), 1/4" Crochet Trim (118481), Dimensionals

    *Holiday Mini merchandise will be availalbe to purchase beginning August 1

    Want to save some money on your fall and winter holiday craft projects?

    Sign up as a demonstrator in early August to earn a discount on a customizable starter kit ($125 in product for $99). Beginning August 1, if you sign up you'll also receive a Halloween Home decor kit that you'll love! Let me help you select the starter kit items you really want today and we'll hold the order until the August promotion begins!
    As a Demonstrator you'll also be able to attend Convention next July and hear from Stampin' Up Staff presenters like Pam Morgan, Donna Griffith, Carrie Cudney, and the always humorous and irreverent Bonnie Thurber.  They share great tips from research they've done on what makes a successful Stampin' Up! demonstrator to help you start your own successful business or enjoy your stamping as a passionate creative outlet and a reason to get together with friends, family and neighbors.
    Want to experience what a Stampin' Up! Convention is like?  Watch this video below.  It was streamed live the last day of this year's convention to demonstrators...but now you can see it too!  Note that the demontration also uses the Layered Labels stamp set.  You can create so many wonderful looks with this stamp set!

    The new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! annual catalogs were released June 1, and you can now begin placing orders for new merchandise.  I was so excited to learn that Stampin' Up! picked and shipped most of my order yesterday and I'll have it by next week.  Way to go Stampin' Up! warehouse team!

    The new catalogs are packed with beautiful samples, ideas for color combinations, and simple tutorials.  Large product photos and less text makes the new catalog easier to use.  The free merchandise benefits and hostess gifts have moved to the back of the catalog so you can get right into seeing new stamp sets and products.

    Coordinated Product Suites for smart purchasing

    I love how Stampin' Up! has made it easier and faster than ever to coordinate products.  Stamp sets, Designer Series papers and embellishments are grouped into suites...products that all work together.  This time-saving coordination of products means smarter purchases for you.  My favorite product suite in this catalog is Floral District.  Take a look at pp. 70-71 of the new catalog to see samples of stamp sets, background stamps, stampin' around wheels, designer fabric, Bigz XL dies that all work together beautifully in this Suite.  Which is your favorite product suite from the new catalog?

    Product Suites also available on disc for My Digital Studio

    And, if easy purchasing of coordinating products weren't enough, this suite is also available on disc for My Digital Studio.   You'll find coordinating My Digital Studio discs for your favorite suite (s) on pp. 198 -199 of the new big catalog.

    The Floral District Collection DVD is Item 127217, $23.95.  This is a 10% savings over downloading each of the items in the collection separately.

    Free In Color download for My Digital Studio

    Speaking of My Digital Studio, you can download the five new In Colors for your copy of My Digital Studio for FREE.  These five new In Colors will be active for two years, and are a wonderful addition to coordinate with with your digital designs or your traditional card making and scrap booking projects.

    • To add the new In Colors to My Digital Studio, Open the software, go to Help in the menu bar and select, Check for updates.  Accept the update and restart your computer after the software is finished loading.
    • Order the new In Colors in Card stock, Pens, Ink pads and reinkers and coordinating embellishments from my store..   Visit my Stampin' Up! store to see new In Colors and don't forget to add the new catalog to your order.

    In Color resin Dahlias

    I was so excited to see the new In Color Dahlias that match the 5 new In colors (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit)!

    I have been making my own resin flowers and shapes from molds, clear resin and Stampin' Up! Craft reinkers.  None of my molds are a wonderful (or as convenient) as this little  3/8" Dahlias from Stampin' Up!  I know I'll be using a ton of these the next two years, so I went ahead and ordered 15 packages with my first new-catalog order.  Better hurry if you want some of these (hee hee)...or they'll be on back order!  Order Item number 127556, pp. 175, $7.95 for 20 flowers, 4 each in 5 colors.

    New Paper-Piercing Pack

    I have to tell you about one more new product before I sign off today.  Its the new Paper-Piercing Pack.  This pack allows you to accent many of the new Big Shot Edgelete and Framelit designs, punched shapes and tags.  It is item number 126187 p 181, and at only $7.95 I think it is one of the best values in the whole catalog!  If you need a new Paper-piercing tool and a Stampin' Pierce Mat, those items are also available on p 181.
    Paper-piercing Pack - Item 126187, p181 - $7.95
    One thing I like about downloading the FREE pdf of the catalog is that I can view the samples in the catalog at a very large size.  Take a close-up look at the sample on p 181 to see the beautiful accents you can add to your cards with this Paper-piercing pack!  View the new Big Shot Edgelets and Framelets on pp 190-191.  Download the .pdf version.

    And, before signing off, here's a sneak peak at a few of the cards from a new, fast, easy-cards class I'm hosting in August 28.  Be sure you're signed up to receive updates to my bog (sign up in the right hand column) and watch for registration to open soon.
