Stampin Up Easter Blooms Stampin Up Occasion Mini Spring Is Blossoming

Hello My Crafty Friends. . .  Welcome to Monday.  We had a great week end.  It did start of a little shakey with some rain on Friday night.  Our Saturday games were cancelled, thank heavens.  It was downright cold here but Sunday turned out to be a great day.  We won all three games on Sunday and took the championship.  Woo Hoo !!!!!!

Easter is down to just a couple of days now, but there is still time to make a few more Easter cards for your family.  Today I have one more card to share using the Easter Blossoms set from the Occasion MiniMy cardbase is Very Vanilla matted with Baja Breeze.  I used the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder on the Baja for some added depth.  Adding texture to your card is always a good thing.  Inside the famed tulip I have a piece of Springtime Vintage designer paper.  Another stirp was added using  a different piece from the Sprintime Vintage DP and the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I used my nesties to get just the right circle size for my focal point.  Isn't the little girl silhouette just great.  Reminds me of a simplier time of life.  For my pretties I added a strip of Bashful Blue Ribbon on some pearls

A Sneek Peek With Something New

Stampin' Up Summer Mini The Open Sea Manly Man Card

Hello My Crafty Friends. . .  Boy oh boy what a stamp set I have to share with you.  As I have mentioned in the past, manly man cards are difficult for me. But I have a sneek peek for you from the upcoming Summer Mini.  The stamp set is called The Open Sea and I thought it was calling out for the color combo of Red, White, and Blue.   I'm also excited to see a brand new product that will debut in the Summer Mini.  It's called Bakers Twine and comes in three colors, Early Expresso, Cherry Cobbler, and White.  It's soft and so easy to work with, you're gonna love it.  Now on to the deets.  There's no speical technquie used on this card just lots of layers to give you depth.  For my base I used Night of Navy matted with Whisper White.  Next is another layer of Night of Navy matted with a piece of Cherry Cobbler from the Regals Designer Series Paper Pack.  I did cut my dp on a diagonal to give it more of a nautical look.  My focal point is Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  Ink is Night of Navy and Cherry Cobber.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I choose the Father's Day stamp but this could easily be a birthday card. 

The new stuff at the top is called Baker's Twine.  I'm sure you have seen it.  I'm so happy to welcome it to the Stampin' Up Line.  It will be featured in the Summer Mini in three colors.  Early Expresso, Cherry Cobbler and White.  So excited for something new.  LOL

Your Summer Mini should be coming to your home town very soon.  If you're in need of one please contact me and I'll send one right out to you.  If you already have a relationship with a fellow Demonstrator please contact her.

A Sneek Peak From the Summer Mini

Stampin Up Summer Mini On The Grow Stampin up Occasion Mini

Hello Folks. .  Welcome to SandiesKorner on this lovely Thursday morning.  Today I have a sneek peek of one of the new images that will debut in the Summer Mini begining on May 1st.  That's just a couple of weeks away.  The stamp set is called On the Grow.  Can't you just feel the soft breeze on your face riding this cute little scooter.  My color combo is clean and simple.  I used Whisper White as my basecard layered with Cherry Cobbler and a piece of Not Quite Navy designer paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Pack found on pg 168 of your catty.  For a little extra pizzazz I did heat emboss my image with Black Embossing Powder after I stamped my image in Versamark on watercolor paper.  I used my Aqua Pen and inks to color my image.  Inks I used were Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Caju Craze, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler.  My cool tools are the ticket punch and the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  Too dress it up just a tad I used some white brads in the corners.  I hope you like it, I think this is a versatile image that can be used in many ways (hello, thinking of you, birthdays, Father's Day, let your imagination sore).  I hope you enjoyed my card today, if you are in need of any supplies please shop at my on-line store.

Thinkin’ Spring With Flower Fancy


Stampin Up Occasion Mini Stampin Up Bold Blossom Spring Is Blossoming

Hello My Crafty Friends.   Welcome to SandiesKorner.  It just happens to be hump day, that means you're gettin' closer to the week end.  Ya !!!!  This time of year is always a hard one for me.  I have a kazillion of stamps sets to use, but I'm tired of them all. The Summer Mini is getting close.  Reveal date is May 1st and will have some new rubba to work with.  So in the mean time I got to diggin' and came across a lovely floral set called Flower Fancy.  I have so much fun making my own background paper.  My colors are Marina Mist, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.  Next I needed a tag but didn't have one the right size, so I made one with a Circle Punch.  In this case I choose a 2" punch, I cut a strip of Whisper White just a tad smaller like 1/8 inch.  This helps get the paper under the punch a little easier.  Anyhoo, slip you paper from the top down into the cutting edge of your punch.  This can be a little tricky, TIP:  insert a scrap piece into your punch as you would normally do, then slip the piece you want to cut, you will have an easier go at it.  Then cut.  You can make your strip as long or short as you want.  I stamped some butterflies from Bold Blossom and cut them out and attached them with dimensionals.  My sentifment is from Fanciful Phrases. The font on this one is just beautiful.  My ribbon is Marina Mist and I used a stamp from Tiny Tags and attached it with one of our saftey pins from Tiny Trinkets.  Supply List Below:

  • Just a few reminders:  You should be receiving you Summer Mini soon.  It will be released on May 1st.  If you are in need of one please email me with your name and address and I'll sent one right out for you.

Easter Blossoms In Rose Red


Stampin' Up Easter Blossoms Easter Card Stampin' Up Occasion Mini Spring Is Blossoming

Hello My Crafty Friends. .  Welcome to Thursday already.  I have a card today to share using our Easter Blossoms set from the Occasion Mini.  Card size is the standard A2 5.5 x 4.25.  My color combo is Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Springtime Vintage DP.  I started out with my usual layering but for some texture and pizzazz I used our Square Lattice Embossing folder on my Very Vanilla piece.  Next up I used one of my favs and that's the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  A must in your collection of punches.  Don't you just love punches and die cuts.  They do all the work for you and its perfect every time.  It's an investment but boy oh boy it's worth it.  Love it!!!  The little girl silhouette brings back great memories for me of the second or third grade.  Every student received their very own silhouette and it still amazes me today how accurate they looked.  For my small scallop piece I used the Birds and Blooms Sizzlit Die Cut and nested it with a 1" or possibly even a 1.25" circle punch.  TIP:  Be sure and go thru you die cuts every once in a while or even better make a list of what you have.  There are images that we sometime forget we have.  For supplies to make this card be sure and visit my Stampin' Up store.
