Here’s a quick note from Candy:

Happy New Year and New Catalog! I just want to let you know that my blog posts may be sparse for a couple weeks. I’ve been in bed with a bad back since Christmas. I can only get up for short periods of time. So I haven’t been able to make new projects to share with you, which feels worse than the back pain! I will hopefully be up and at ’em very soon. But in the meantime, please don’t give up on me! I appreciate your support for my small business very, very much!

Friend Card in Needlepoint

The new Needlepoint Nook suite in the 2019 Occasions catalog is beautiful. Nothing says handmade like stitchery! It reminds me of being a young girl and learning to sew and embroider with my mother, and to needlepoint with my aunt Edna. I’ve used the Needle & Thread stamp set and Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies (buy together and save 10%) with the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to create this sweet friend card.

Butterfly Beauty Abounds Friend Card

Here’s another sneak peek of new products from the 2019 Occasions catalog, which goes live in only 5 days! I used the Beauty Abound stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies (get the bundle to save 10%) along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to create this lovely friend card.

Beauty Abounds stamp set, Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, bundle, Wood Textures paper, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Powder Pink CS cut to 3″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Beauty Abounds stamp set:

  • outer sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the Powder Pink CS
  • small butterfly in Lovely Lipstick ink onto a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • inner sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS (Oops! I forgot to photograph the inside of the card. The sentiment is “…out of a whole world of people.”)

Die cut using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits:

  • small stamped butterfly
  • large butterfly background shape from a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • large butterfly foreground shape from a scrap of Lovely Lipstick CS
  • NOTE: I had no trouble cutting the butterflies using the Magnetic Platform on my Big Shot. If your butterflies don’t cut well, use the Precision Base Plate with the regular platform.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • large Lovely Lipstick butterflies glued onto the large Powder Pink butterflies, then the whole thing glued onto the DSP layer
  • NOTE: I recommend putting glue on just part of the large die cut and lining it up, then doing another small section. Otherwise the large delicate die cut can flop around on you.
  • small butterfly glued onto the sentiment
  • sentiment glued over the butterflies using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

For Your Birthday Cheer Card

Today’s card is another one I made using the new Birthday Cheer bundle. You can see the first one here. I used a piece of the new How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper for the background, and took the remaining colors from that paper pack. These new products will be available January 3 – that’s just 6 days away! The Layering Ovals Framelits Dies added the perfect base for the sentiment and stamped cupcake.

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons for IRBH

Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons for IRBH banner, stampin' Up! #stampcandy

It’s time for the InKing Royalty Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes have all been inspired by popular songs, and this month’s song is “Pretty Paper.” The main lyric is, “Pretty paper, pretty ribbon of blue.” As you might guess, our hop today is filled with projects that feature paper and ribbon. We have a wide variety of projects, and we’re excited to share our creations with you. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list that you’ll find farther down. You can hear the song “Pretty Paper” by Roy Orbison at the base of this post.

For my card I chose what I think is one of the prettiest pieces of paper we carry right now. It’s from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, and it’s covered in lots of gorgeous flowers. I especially love the big pink peonies. I knew I wanted to use some of the brand new ribbon from the 2019 Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs, so I chose a card stock color to coordinate with that. The Petal Pink/Whisper White 5/8″ Variegated Ribbon is from the Occasions catalog, and the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon is part of the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack from the Sale-a-bration brochure. They will be available on January 3, 2019. 

After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop on over to Pam Morris at Tap Tap Stamp. Scroll down to see the list of stops on the hop. Be sure to check out all of them. There’s a lot of talent in this group and you don’t want to miss any of it!
