More Designer Backgrounds

Hello Friends,

I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog lately. I just haven’t had time! Things should calm down in a few weeks and I should be able to post daily again.

Recently, I shared a card I made using designer paper  that was made with stamps. You can see it here.  I want to share another card made with my own designer paper design Make Your Own Designer Paperwith you today.  I used the flower image from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and randomly stamped it on Whisper White Card Stock with Crisp Cantaloupe Ink. I added some Dazzling Details to the flowers.  The bird, greeting, and banners are from the same set.

There are so many ways to make your own background paper.  Stay tuned for more techniques in the following weeks.

Make Your Own Designer Paper

Make Your Own Designer Paper

 

Making the Hand-stamped Designer Paper:

When making your own hand-stamped designer paper, it’s always a good idea to start with an 8-1/2” x  11”  or larger piece of card stock.  That way you’ll have more to make several cards.  For this card, I used a piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  You want to start off with the largest stamp image you’re going to use.  In this case, the ship image is the largest.  Ink the ship image with Not Quite Navy Ink and randomly stamp all over the whole sheet of Whisper White Card Stock, leaving empty spaces between the images.  Then, ink the anchor image in Chocolate Chip Ink and stamp it in some of the empty spaces around the ship images.  Next, ink the compass image in Cherry Cobbler Ink and fill up the rest of the empty spaces on the sheet of card stock.  It is up to you how close you stamp your images, but you want it to look like a sheet of designer paper you would buy in the store!  When you stamp a whole sheet of card stock like this, you end up with enough designer paper to make several cards.

New Stamp of the Month Club

Hello Friends,

It’s time to begin another Stamp of the Month Club.  There are several options when you join.  Read below to find out more.

Here’s how the Classy Cut-ups Stamp Club works:

  • Each month there will be a featured stamp set.  As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I am not allowed to stamp any images and put them in card kits.  Therefore, you will need to purchase the featured stamp set.  I will contact you the previous month to let you know what the featured stamp set is for the following month.  I will order the stamp sets in either wood or clear (if offered) for each member of the club.  You will choose which option you prefer.
  • We will need 6 members for each club.  At the end of each month, you will receive a package in the mail with the NEW stamp set, and 4 different card kits or complete cards, (including embellishments, die-cuts, etc.) with the photos and directions for making each card using your stamp set!  If you’re local, we will be meeting on the last Friday of the month to put the cards together if you chose the card kits versus the complete cards.  There will be door prizes!
  • The club subscription lasts 6 months.  At the end of the 6 months, you will have the option to rejoin if you would like to continue as a member of the club. If you want to be in the next club, you just have to let me know.  If you don’t want to rejoin, you can join for one month only whenever YOU choose without the hostess benefits offer.
  • Since I will be placing the orders for club members one time every month, the club will qualify as a workshop and each one of you will be a monthly hostess in the order that you join the club.  When it is your turn to be the hostess, you will receive the hostess benefits of at least $25.00 to spend on the Stampin’ Up! products of your choice!  You can also add additional products to your order if you would like to save on shipping costs.
  • If you have a friend join the club, you will receive an additional stamp set of your choice valued at $20.00 or less!

Why join the Classy Cut-ups Stamp Club?

  • No meeting dates and times to take you away from your family – no driving, no time out of your busy schedules.
  • You choose the time you want to stamp.
  • Sit back, relax and look forward to a fun package in your mailbox each month!
  • Four free full cards or card kits (your preference) for every featured stamp set in the mail and more ideas online.
  • Learn new techniques and fun folds.
  • At the end of your 6 month subscription, you could have up to 8 new stamp sets in your collection!
  • Extra goodies for you from time to time!
  • Here are samples of the cards my clubs have made this year.

  • Monthly Club Fee: The monthly club fee will be $35 for clear mount stamp sets, $42 per month for wood mount , which includes shipping and tax!  This club fee and additional product choices (if you order any other products) will be invoiced through PayPal around the first day of the month.
  • Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators may join the club for $20.00 per month (including shipping.)  You will only receive  4 finished cards (made with the stamps set of the month) and the directions for each one since many of you will already have the stamp sets I’ll be featuring.

Prefer a no obligation club?  You can join for one month only whenever YOU choose without the hostess benefits offer.

Call or email me with your questions or to join a club!

Do You Like Embossed Cards or Die-cuts?

Hello Friends,

The other day, I looked back at some of the old cards I made before the BS (Big Shot) and they are so plain, bare and blah!  I don’t know how I lived without it.  After the BS, practically all of my cards have embossing and/or die-cuts on them.  The embossing adds so much to the card – dimension, interest, and beauty, and the embossing folders can be used in so many ways with the Big Shot.  You can cut at least 60 different materials using it, and with the Bigz Dies, you can cut multiple layers at the same time.

Stampin' Up!'s Big Shot Special

If you don’t have a Big Shot, now is the time to purchase yours!  Why now? Because during the month of August, when you purchase a BS you’ll get your choice of 5 bundles for FREE! The bundles include the stamp set and matching Framelits Dies.

If you already own a Big Shot, you can purchase these bundles for 15% off.

Purchase your Big Shot and select your free bundle here.

Guess What else!  More products have been added to the Clearance Rack, including 15 dies/framelits sets and 6 embossing folders.  You can see them here.

So, what’s the difference between Stampin’ Up!’s Big Shot and the ones you can purchase at other stores?  You only get a 1-year warranty and no training when it’s purchased in other stores, while Stampin’ Up! gives you a 3-year warranty and lots of training on how to use it.  If you have attended any of my classes, you’ve already used the Big Shot and love it. (Especially when it’s used with the Magnetic Plate.)  It holds the die-cuts exactly where they’re placed and cut the framelits out perfectly.

Check here tomorrow when the weekly deals are announced.  You may find more dies and/or embossing folders for sale!

Like I Need Another Craft!

Hello Friends,

I have made so many great friends during my time as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  You meet a lot of people, they come to your classes, they become customers, you get to know them, and you become friends.

Yesterday, I spent most of the day with my good friend, Kathy.  She loves to make cards andHandmade Jewelry so many other crafts.  One of the crafts Kathy does is making jewelry…beautiful jewelry! Well, guess what she taught me to do.  Yes, she taught me how to make 2 easy bracelets and earrings.  I love them so much that I have to share them with you!  This is my first one. I love the shades of blues with the silver.  I was so thrilled with it!

Bracelets and earringsThis is the second one I made.  I love it, too!  The large beads are multicolored with shades of yellow, gold, brown, and red.  The smaller beads are red and it was made with gold accents.  After Kathy showed me how to string the beads, it was pretty easy.  Of course, the ones I made are nothing like hers!

Before I go, I want to remind you of the Big Shot Special during the month of August.  From today – August 31st, 2014, you will receive your choice of one of 5 awesome stamp sets and matching die-cuts bundles absolutely FREE! Read my previous post listing all the details here.

Blendabilities with the Corner Garden Stamp Set

Hi Friends,

I want to share another card with you using the Corner Garden Stamp Set and the new Blendabilities Pens.  Both of these are “must haves”, especially if you like using alcohol Blendabilitiesmarkers to color your line images.  They are similar to Copic Markers, but easier to use and less expensive.  They are made for blending and shading. The markers are also acid free and lignin free.  There are 3 markers per assortment: light, medium, dark.  Use the Momento Ink pad to stamp the image, because the colors won’t bleed like they would do with StazOn or Classic Ink pads.

On this card, I used the Pumpkin Pie set,  the Old Olive set, the Daffodil Delight set, and the Cherry Cobbler set.  The Corner Garden Stamp Set is great for coloring and shading.

The greeting is from the Sassy Salutations Stamp Set and was also stamped in Momento Ink on the Whisper White Card Stock layer.  The card base was made with Daffodil Delight Card Stock.  The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.  They were stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink, punched out with the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly Punches. The edges were sponged with Daffodil Delight Ink, Basic Rhinestones were added, and they were added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Purchase the products I used to make this card by calling me, emailing me, clicking on the photo below, or by clicking on the “Order Stampin’ Up! Online” button in the right column.
