Sticky Strip Embossing – Dragonfly Card

I have hosted Technique Tuesdays in my home once a month for over 11 years.  That’s a lot of techniques!  Over the summer, I reorganized my technique packs and found I was missing an example.  Well, rather than going back to a retired set, I re-envisioned it with a current stamp set.

This technique was Sticky Strip Embossing – a SUPER EASY technique.  Use your embossing buddy as usual, but create a bold line of embossing by putting down a stripe of Sticky Strip.  Then sprinkle your embossing powder right over hit, tap off the excess, and heat emboss until melted.

Best Time to Join Stampin’ Up!

Have you ever wanted to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator? Are you a crafter always looking for a deal? During the month of July, Stampin’ Up! is offering another FREE item with your kit – one set of inkpads from the color collections – valued at $67.50. You even get to choose which ink pad collection you want (choose from Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, or In Colors).

The recruitment kit is $99 – but you get to choose $125 worth of items. Keep in mind, as a new recruit, you pick your own items in your kit. You also get over $50 of business supplies for free. Another perk of the kit is FREE SHIPPING!

It really is a fantastic deal and certainly a hard one to pass up! Even though being a demonstrator is one of the best decisions of MY life, if selling is not for you, no problem. Keep your kit items and let your demonstratorship run out. But if you want to start this journey, I’ll help you along the way.  Contact me to get started!

Wedding Card for Melissa and Alex

Last weekend was a particularly special wedding for a work and stamping friend, Melissa. Here is the wedding card I created using our new Tufted embossing folder:

She has a fondness for our Tangerine Tango (and we are both sad it retired).  This card did have a bit of bling!

Happy for this wonderful couple!

Joy Fun Fold Card

Today is National Joe Day.  Many of you know the story of our dear little Joey, who, when he was just a little guy, would often sign his name forgetting his “e” .  So he was known as our Joy.

I taught a fun fold card technique and was happy I could put a little Joy spin on it for my stampers tonight.

The Fresh Florals DSP is perfect for this card!  I know this is the first time I used the border from the Floral Phrases stamp set.  The framelit phrase actually says “you” but making a quick snip with the scissors creates “joy”.  

Measurements are as follows:

  • Color Cardstock – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ – scored at 1-1/4″ and 4-1/4″4
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • DSP (3 pieces)
  • (2) 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″
  • (1) 1″ x 5-1/4″

Super easy!

Easter Bunny Card

At my Spring Cards Stamp Camp, we created an Easter Bunny card using the Layering Ovals Framelits, the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder, and a few other punches (3/4″ for nose, Cookie Cutter Builder for the eyes, and Holly Berry Builder for the bow).  Color combination is Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, and Whisper White.  Stamp set used was Teeny Tiny Wishes for the Easter saying.  Add a gem and the journaling marker for whispers, pop up with dimensionals, and you have my bunny!

Birthday Beer Card for Mike

My son, Mike, is celebrating his 21st birthday today. At a recent stamp camp, I shared this card with my stampers.

My stampers really loved the fun card and the Bermuda Bay/Crumb Cake/Chocolate Chip color combination.  Our new Bubble Over stamp set is in the Occasions mini catalog.  You can create beer bottles or soda bottles in two different sizes and use framelits so you don’t need to fussy cut!

There is coordinating Designer Series Paper you can get for free during Sale-A-Bration!  Just spend $50 to get your free pack!

Happy birthday, Mike!  Can’t wait to share a cold one with you!

Heartfelt Blooms Triple Layer Card

Yes, it has been a while. I’ve been creating a bit more, but getting to photograph the creations and write my blog is still difficult.

This card was created in two different colors – Fresh Fig and Berry Burst. This is the Fresh Fig rendition. Very simple card using the triple layer technique. I love this new Sale-A-Bration stamp set – just twisting the stamp can make it look like you are using three different stamps.

The coordinating ribbon and large gems complete the look. So many occasions to use this card – use a phrase from the stamp set or find another one in your collection!
