Today is the SUDSOL Blog Tour! Our blog tour is featuring projects using the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini stamp sets and products.
Heart Framelit 3D Valentine Project
I am sharing a wonderful project from last weekend's Mom and Me Valentine's Day Stamp Camp. I had three girls attend - who ranged in ages from 6 to 11. This project was simple enough so the girls could easily recreate it for a Valentine's Day class handout. All of the ladies loved it!
The project features the new Heart Framelits from the Occasions Mini Catalog…it took me a while to open up this package and use it. BUT I AM NOW HOOKED. Oh, it is so much fun creating with these beauties!
Here is the project we made:
For this version, here are the supplies needed:
Here are our proud stampers – thank you Erica, Heather, and Katie for stamping with me today. You were so sweet!
Want to see a "Blinged Out" version of the project? This one could be made for your child's teacher or maybe tucked in your sweetie's lunch on Valentine's Day. I embossed the back Pretty in Pink heart using the Polka Dots Embossing Folder – plus added some smaller Melon Mambo hearts before embossing the front Pretty in Pink heart. I also added a backing to my phrase and colored the heart in with a Pretty in Pink marker and then topped it with Dazzling Details.
Heart Framelit-Quilted Heart Technique TUTORIAL
I teach a Technique Tuesday stamp class every month. We did take December off, but I was ready to go tonight with a fabulous new technique. I taught my stampers how to do a Quilted Heart card. Here is the finished card:
Hidden Treasures Technique
Another technique I taught my customers tonight was the Hidden Treasures technique. SO SWEET! We used lots of Sale-A-Bration items including the Everyday Enchantment DSP, Everyday Enchantment ribbon pack, and the Sprinkled Expressions stamp set. Here is the card:
What is SUDSOL?
I've been a member of SUDSOL for over 10 years. SUDSOL is a online business group with a huge demonstrator-only gallery…one of my secret weapons when planning my stamping events. There are business resources, workshop ideas, templates, techniques, newsletter examples, and so much more. This is a strictly BUSINESS group – if ever I have a question about my SU business, I ask this forum first.
Here is a link to my SUDSOL gallery – http://www.sudsol.org/members/gallery/showgallery.php?ppuser=63&username=hignitej . Why not join with a 2-week trial? Click on the icon on the top left side of my blog!

Welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from the main page www.su-stars.
Today's blog hop features Ebony & Ivory Cards - sometimes simple color combinations are the best! This card uses a fabulous technique called Double Embossing:
The only "color" on this card is the Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin Ribbon. I used the Domestic Goddess DSP for the technique portion of the card. Want to know how to do the double embossed technique? Here are the supplies:
Run the Embossing Buddy over the card stock or DSP. Ink brayer with Versamark ink. Apply inked brayer to the side of the embossing folder with the design "pressed in".
Place the card stock or DSP face down on the inked side of the embossing folder and feed it through the Big Shot.
Cover inked paper with embossing powder and heat set.
Use double embossed piece on your project!
Don't you love this new ribbon? This is our 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon which is available through April 30th in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

If you ever get lost along the way during the blog hop, you should go back to this main page to find the next stop. The theme of this blog hop is Holiday Hoopla!
Today I am sharing one of my cards from this week's Holiday Cards Stamp Camp. My customers loved making this card. Colors used are Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White. The phrase is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set.
The strips of the hearth were distressed with one of the inks from the distressing kit. Then the top piece was punched with the scallop border punch. Cherry Cobbler quilted ribbon is on the top of the hearth. The phrase from Delightful Dozen was inked in Garden Green.
The stockings are incredibly easy with our new stocking punch. The bows were made out of the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and attached with mini glue dots. Instead of threading the twine through the holes of the bells, the bells were also attached with a mini glue dot. The stockings were attached to the hearth with Stampin' Dimensionals.
To make the fire in the fireplace, all you need is the Stocking Punch and Early Espresso and More Mustard card stock. Punch with Early Espresso once (the top of the stocking) and More Mustard three times (the heel portion). You will cut the Early Espresso punch piece in half. Now just place the pieces as shown above.

Welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from the main page www.su-stars.
I can't seem to get the new Snow Much Fun stamp set off my stamping table. I don't think my customers are too surprised about that! I've created a fabulous moving card using the slider card technique.
Here are the supplies you need:
Here are the directions:
Be sure to bookmark my site or subscribe to my blog. I've created a brand-new program called Christmas Card Masters Club! I'll be sharing the details on Monday, but if you loved this card, you'll want to come back for sure!

I have created a 20-card kit with all the card-making materials including embellishments and envelopes and a 12-page tutorial with colored photos for $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. As a bonus, you will also receive two additional card formats which you can also use with the materials in your kit. I've got only 3 kits left – for those who purchase these final three kits, I'll include a few of the premade cards with your kit!!!!
What is included in the kit?
The 12-page tutorial will be emailed to both local and online customers.
There will be a few supplies you will need to create the cards:
I can only sell the complete kits to U.S. customers. However, I can sell the tutorial to anyone!
Demonstrators – this kit is perfect for a Stamp-A-Stack!! I purposely created all-occasion cards that were easy enough for the beginner, but special enough to please your toughest customer! I will be happy to sell the tutorial to interested demonstrators for only $7.00. For a limited time, I'll be offering the emailed tutorial for only $5.00!!!
The 20 cards I created use most of the self-adhesive die cuts included in the kit – but there will be some cut card stock and Designer Series Paper left over to use on other projects. You can even make the kit go further if you stamp or punch other items to accent the cards.
Why do I create card kits? I LOVE having my customers come to my home for stamp camps and events, but I know there are several stampers out there who just can't make it to my events. This is an easy way for them to keep their creative juices flowing and their card stash filled. These card kits are also great for my stampers who love to create cards, but don't always enjoy planning out and cutting out their cards.

Welcome to the first 2011 VC Rocks Bloghop…you've most likely arrived here from Veronica Miller's blog . If you want to start at the beginning of the blog hop, you can start here – www.vcrocks.blogspot.com .
The theme of this blog hop is COLORING. If you know me very well, you know I love quick and easy results in cardmaking. I also love to use bleach in my stamping as it makes the house smell clean and fools the husband and kiddies that mom cleaned all day instead of stamped all day.
One of my favorite stamp sets in the new Summer Mini Catalog is Sail Away. This is a perfect stamp set for coloring with bleach!
First off, here are the supplies you'll need for the technique:
I am heat embossing the image first (you could also use StazOn instead). I've got my handy dandy heat embossing reflector (a piece of cardboard covered in aluminum foil), my SU heat gun, black embossing powder, embossing buddy, VersaMark, stamp, bleach (bleach should be "fresh"), nonpourous bowl, and bleach applicator (cheap paintbrush).
Whenever you are working with bleach, be careful for your health and safety. Work in a ventilated area and protect your eyes, clothing, and stamping station. If you are pregnant, I highly suggest you take bleach stamping off your to-do list until after your baby blessing has arrived!
Coloring with Bleach Tutorial – Sail Away Card
1. Heat emboss the sailboat image.
I used Not Quite Navy card stock which was already run through my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle #2 die. I ran my embossing buddy over it first and then heat set the black embossing powder.
2. Take cap off bleach and pour a small amount of bleach in the cap from the bleach bottle.
3. Apply bleach using paintbrush or other applicator tool to the portion of the embossed image you want "colored":
You should immediately see some color change. If you don't, your bleach may be too old or not "fresh" enough.
Coloring with bleach actually is taking AWAY color from the card stock. Different card stock, even different card stock lots, will produce varying results. I suggest trying to bleach on a small piece of scrap card stock before finalizing your selection or coordinating colors for the card design.
4. Finish the bleaching and set aside to dry.
5. Once dry, attach image to your card.

I have "met' many fabulous stamping demos and nondemos through this group.
I'm so excited to share this kit! My Stamper's 10 group made this project last month, and it was a huge hit! I am also making one for my adorable niece, Katie, who I always call Katie Bug!
