New Card Closure Using The Scallop Tag Punch

scalloptagclosure

Hello Folks.  Happy day to ya.  I found this layout on the web the other day and fell in love with this unique closure.  It's using our new Scallop Tag Punch #133324 from the Occasion Mini.  Old habits die hard I keep calling our new Occasion Catalog a Mini.  Oh well I'll keep trying to change.  LOL  

My cardbase is one of our new In Colors, Pistachio Pudding.  What a pretty pastel.  I matted a piece of Basic Black and designer paper (Sweet Sorbet #133521) from the Sale A Bration Brochure.  It was FREE wth a $50 purchase.  My stamp set is Flower Shop (w) 130939 (c) 130942.  I punched my flower out with the coordinating punch Pansy #130698.  My sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes punched with our Window Punch and mounted on a piece of BB using our Modern Label Punch.  To watch a video on how to make this card click here for Tayna Bell's video.

Background Stamping With Gorgeous Grunge

Hello Folks. . .  Here we are again, so cold this afternoon and snowing again.  My gosh, so ready for Spring.

Today I have an easy card to share with you.  It could easliy be a masculine card for that special birthday.  My cardbase is Basic Gray (not a color I use very often), matted with a piece of Basic Black and Whisper White.  When I was working on this card, my original thought was to use this card in my upcoming Stamp A Stack, so I wanted something with a WOW factor but simple to make.

My stamps sets are

  • Label of Love (w) 130619 (c) 130622
  • Gorgeous Grunge (w) 130514 (c)130517

Gorgeous Grunge is a great stamp set to use for background stamping.  My colors are Island Indigo, Garden Green, Smokey Slate and Calypso Coral.

As a focal point I used three 3/4" wide strips and used our Square Lattice Embosing Folder #119976.  As you know Stampin' Up is very good at making products that coordinate like the Artisan Label Punch #130920.  

This is one of our quick and easy cards to make  I hope you are inspired to do some stamping.  There are many promos going on right now like Sale A Bration.  There is still time left to take advantage of this sale and choose a FREE stamp set or product from this year's Sale A Bration Brochure.  If you would like to place an order please click on my link below and it will take you to my OnLine Store.  

Thanks for stopping by, if I can help in any way, please email  me and let me know.  Now's a great time to join the Stampin' Up Family.  During Sale A Bration you can choose $150 in products for just $99 and receive all kinds of perks as a Stamin' Up Demonstrator.  Hobby or Career demos are welcome.  No selling or workshops required and you will still receive your 20% discounts and get advance notices of upcoming events.

Happy Watercolor Stamp Set From Occasion Catalog

happywatercolor happywatercoor1

Hello Folks. .   Hope you are all doing well and are enjoying our once  a year sale – Sale A Bration.  Today I have a lovely card (cased) to share with you featuring a couple of our products from the Occasion Catalog. This catalog is chocked full of great new stamp sets, new punches, bundles and pretty embellishments.  If you like everything ready at your disposal, check out the new kits.  Fast and easy for the busy stamper.  The stamp set that I am featuring today is called "Water Watercolor" (w) 133188, (c) 133191.  The stamp that drew me to this set is the watercolor mark.  Love how the color graduates, all you have to do is ink and stamp and you have the watercolor look without any fuss or mess.  Love it !!!!!!  This card is unique because it has a differnt kind of closure.  I used the new Scallop Tag Topper Punch #133324 and some 3/8" Satin Ribbon to close the card.  Don't you think it adds a nice touch?  It looks to me like a belt buckle.

My colors are Crumg Cake, Very Vanilla and Crisp Cantalope.  I used one of our Circle Framelits #130911 to make my peek-a-boo hole.  The watercolor mark and the flower is acually on the inside of the card.  To do this, adhere your VV piece on to the card front and cut both pieces at one time  The framelit will easily cut thru two layers and turns out perfect every time.  I also took my CC marker to make a color mark over the word you, just to add more pizzazz to the card.  My flowers are punched from our Itty Bitty Trio Punch.  If you don't have that one, may I suggest using the BoHo Blossoms Punch #199858 instead.  Add some pretty pearls and viola' you have yourself a very pretty card.
