Hello From The Coming Home Bundle In Just Jade

Hello From The Coming Home Bundle In Just Jade

Obsessed *might* be the right word for how I feel about this entire bundle (even more so ~ the suite collection) in the new fall/winter mini catalog: Coming Home!

I am featuring it all week long on Facebook and Instagram and of course, right here on my blog and I can’t wait to tell you all about it and this adorable card I made.

COMING HOME BUNDLE #155144

The Coming Home Bundle by Stampin’ Up! includes the Coming Home Stamp Set and the Home Together Dies.

COMING HOME STAMP SET
Capture the feel of a hometown holiday with the whimsical imagery of the Coming Home Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! You can make a difference in your community by purchasing it; we will make a donation to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility. Ask your demonstrator about coordinating products.

* 12 photopolymer stamps
* Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): a, c, e

HOME TOGETHER DIES
Create a sweet hometown scene with the Home Together Dies from Stampin’ Up! You’ll get a charming variety of homes, trees, and landscapes all waiting to see what you create with them.

* 13 dies
* Largest die: 6″ x 1-1/2″ (15.2 x 3.8 cm)
* Use with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine

Our craft bundles make coordination easy. Stamp & tool bundles help you quickly cut out stamped images for a single project or create multiples of the same project with ease.

Quick Tip

I use the stamps with our Stamparatus® Foam Mat (#150081) to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.

My Color Palette

I knew right away that I wanted a cheerful card that did not feature any Christmas or holiday feel. I right away used my sponge dauber and created a pool party sky with crumb cake ground.

I knew the door to my house should be bright yellow with a red door. So chic! I love it!!

The rest was just creating my scene with our gorgeous new in-color just jade. This color is a must have for any crafter. It is a blue green and lends itself to all kinds of creativity.

My Card Layout

Once I had my focal point designed, I cut it out with a brand new die from the Celebration Label Dies (#153570) in the new mini catalog. I then created the rest of my card.

I started with a Just Jade card base, cut in the hamburger fold, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″.

I adhered a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 3.75″ x 5″ on the inside and left it blank for writing.

Next, I embossed a piece of just jade cardstock, measuring 5.25″ x 4″ with the new tasteful textiles 3d embossing folder and adhered it flat with stampin’ seal.

Once I mounted my scene to the front with dimensionals, I finished the card with the ‘hello’ sentiment from the Free as A Bird and used a piece of ribbon from my ribbon stash to add a cute embellishment.

So Saffron and Gray Granite in a Soft Queen Anne’s Lace Friend Card

So Saffron and Gray Granite in a Soft Queen Anne’s Lace Friend Card

This stamp set, Queen Anne’s Lace, is an easy one to thumb over in our new annual catalog, but I love it. It is perfect for any style stamper and it lends to be used in lots of ways. Although considered toxic in real life, this stamp set will only lend positive vibes to the recipient.

In today’s card I made a fun friend card in a soft color palette. Let me tell you all about my card!

My Card Layout

I started with a so saffron card base, cut in the hamburger fold, measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and scored down the middle at 4.25″.

I used the new tasteful textiles embossing folder and embossed a so saffron mat measuring 4″ x 5.25″, using my personal die cutting machine.

Before adhering the mat flat to the card base with stampin’ seal, I wrapped a gray granite ribbon around the edge and tied a bow.

For the focal point, I stamped the Queen Anne’s lace in basic gray and then the flower petals in matching so saffron. I stamped ‘Hello, friend’ in the bottom right corner and used a die from the Hippo and friends die set.

Thanks a Ton with The Whale Done Bundle

Thanks a Ton with The Whale Done Bundle

In my mind every whale in the ocean has wink of stella all over them. In other words, they sparkle! Don’t you agree?

In my card today, it is true: my whale sparkles and he is swimming in with a Thanks a Ton. Let me tell you all about it.

Product colors: Balmy Blue, Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Pacific Point, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White

My Card Layout

I started with a piece of pacific point cardstock, cut in the hot dog fold, measuring 4.25″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″.

To create my focal point, I cut a piece of pacific point cardstock, measuring 4″ x 5.25″, and cut it twice at a diagonal leaving a big hole in the front. Before attaching it to the card front with dimensionals, I chose a 4″ x 4″ piece of designer series paper and attached it with seal. I also stamped my fish in night of navy all over.

It is important to do it that order otherwise, the DSP won’t fit right. (I learned the hard way, lol!)

Next, I stamped my whale in basic gray and punched him out of smoky slate. I covered him in wink of stella to make him glossy and shiny!! (He’s so cute!)

I also punched out his blow spray in misty moonlight and night of navy and married them together with a tiny drop of liquid glue.

To attach him to my card, I cut out a stitched circle in pool party with my personal die cutting machine. I stamped the ‘Thanks a ton’ sentiment with night of navy!

For the inside, I mounted a piece of pool party (measuring 4″ x 5.25″) with a piece of whisper white (measuring 5″ x 3.75″) and left it blank for writing.

Whale Done set of Cards ~ Designed by One and Created by Another

Whale Done set of Cards ~ Designed by One and Created by Another

I love supporting other demonstrators as much as I love it when they support me. We all work for the same Stampin’ Up! company and sometimes I am inspired by their creativity. This is one of those cases.

Erica Cerwin, in Texas, created this fun Whale Done class and included six make-n-take cards and a book! I wanted the book the most but I wasn’t going to say no to these cute cards.

The entire class was surrounded around the Whale Done bundle/suite. Let me tell you all about it.

Whale Of A Time Suite Collection #154126

You’ll have a “whale” lot of fun with the illustrated oceanic life in the Whale of a Time Suite Collection by Stampin’ Up!


The Whale of a Time Suite Collection includes

* Whale of a Time 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Whale of a Time Sequins

So, I bought the kit and the stamp bundle and the 3d embossing folder and when it was all delivered I went to work. What fun to actually follow someone else’s creative plan for a card layout. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I haven’t even book the photo book together yet.

Keep it together with our adhesives and adhesive accessories. Our adhesives are designed for papercrafting, so we have just the right adhesive for each project.

OH! Stampin’ Up! has seriously stepped up their adhesive game with all of their offerings this year. Check out the whole lot here.

I have three favorites (actually I have way more than three, but I am going to showcase just three here today!)

Stampin’ Seal #152813

Instant-bond, permanent adhesive. Holds cardstock and ribbon. Acid free.
16.4 yards (15 m) each. (That’s four more yards than snail!)

I find it has a strong bond and is great for all kinds of projects. I live in the Midwest and humidity is a pain for any adhesive. So far, I feel like this product holds up to those challenges.

Adhesive Sheets #152334

Easily adhere shapes you cut with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine or Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and dies. 12 sheets. 6″ x 12″ (15.2 x 30.5 cm).

These are new. We use to have some from sizzix but these are from Stampin’ Up! and act like a sticker. I love them. They are so fun and make adhering letters and items so easy!

Multipurpose Liquid Glue #110755

Crafters’ dream glue! Multipurpose Liquid Glue adheres glitter and other embellishments. Strong bond; dries clear. Perfect for 3D projects or for working in high humid ares of the country.

Birds and Branches Class Reveal

Birds and Branches Class Reveal

We get inspired when we craft together.

I miss in-person classes. But, I am offering classes to go, where I mail you the entire kit and provide you with step by step instructions AND videos of all the cards in the class. This is the closest and safest way for us to create.

My Birds and Branches Class To Go was a hit. I received such nice feedback and it has inspired me to move forward with similar classes. Here is the reveal of the four cards we did.

If you missed out on this class, I am sorry! But, catch my other classes and join in the fun. I’d love to create with you!

Drinks for Your Birthday! ~ with Jar of Flowers

Drinks for Your Birthday! ~ with Jar of Flowers

I had a blast with today’s birthday card. I used the Jar of Flowers as mason jar drinks in a bold bright card. I love the way it came out. Let me tell you about it.

Jar Of Flowers Bundle #154064

The Jar of Flowers Bundle includes the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set and the Jar Punch.

JAR OF FLOWERS PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET
Fresh-picked flowers in canning jar vases are one of the joys of summer. And the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set brings you a version that stays fresh indefinitely.
*9 photopolymer stamps
*Suggested clear blocks (sold separately): b, d, e

JAR PUNCH
Use the Jar Punch to quickly cut out images you stamp with the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set. *Cut out image: 2-3/16″ x 1-3/8″ (5.6 x 3.5 cm)

Our craft bundles make coordination easy. Stamp & tool bundles help you quickly cut out stamped images for a single project or create multiples of the same project with ease.

Quick Tip

I use the stamps with our Stamparatus® Foam Mat (#150081) to get an even pressure and ink coverage with detailed or background stamps, every time.

Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set #146519

Frames are essential, not only for windows. Frames frame what’s important. In this case it gave a stunning background for my drinks.

Creating My Water Wash

To create the water wash background, I started with a piece of very vanilla cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and heat embossed my swirly frame rectangle with white embossing powder. I then took the flat tip water painter and granny apple green and covered the piece in a water wash.

I used my basic black stampin’ write marker and colored only the outside of my jar stamp and stamped it onto the polka dot patterned paper. I then used the punch and popped them out. For the straws, I stamped onto granny apple green and magenta madness and fussy cut them out to adhered behind the jars.

My Card Layout

I chose granny apple green cardstock for my card base. I cut it in the hot dog fold measuring 4.25″ x 11″ and scored down the middle at 5.5″.

To finish the front of the card, I heat embossed the greeting and cut it out with the classic label punch.

On the inside, I used a piece of very vanilla cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″ and left it blank, other than a sentiment from the Ornate Thanks stamp set that says: “Fill the day with all your guilty pleasures!”
