Share What You Love Bundle Thank You Card

Have you seen the early release product bundles? You can see them HERE. The Share What You Love bundles are full of beautiful floral paper, embellishments, stamp sets, and more. Be sure to get yours by May 31, because that’s the last day they’ll be available. You can also order the new 2018-2020 In Color ink pads in a bundle to save 10%. These products will be in the new annual catalog that goes live June 1 (all except the Statement of My Heart stamp set) but the bundles and free products won’t be. 

Today I’m sharing a card I made for my monthly Stamp Club. It’s a thank you card made using the Share What You Love bundle items.

OSAT Blog Hop – On the Red Carpet

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

Hurray, it’s time for the One Stamp At A Time (OSAT) Blog Hop! This month’s theme is On the Red Carpet. This month we’re sharing glamorous projects (think the red carpet at the Oscars) and/or projects made using new products (as in rolling out the red carpet for the new stuff.) I decided to go a bit literal with the theme and create a project with a glamorous lady on the red carpet. The fancy lady is from the You’ve Got Style stamp set.

I created the texture for the red carpet background and for her fur coat using the suede card stock technique. It’s really simple – just burnish the paper with a Bone Folder on both sides and in all directions until the two paper layers separate. It just just take a minute or so. Each of the resulting two pieces will have a regular smooth side and a fuzzy suede-like side. 

 

Here’s what I made:

Send this card to someone fabulous! Made with the You've Got Style stamp set and Gold Faceted Gems by Stampin' Up! for the OSAT Blog Hop for May 2018. I created a red carpet and fur coat by burnishing cardstock with a Bone Folder until the layers peeled apart. This gives the paper a suede feel. #stampcandy

 

Here you can see the suede-like texture of the Real Red background and the Very Vanilla coat and hat. I just wish I could get the Wink of Stella on her jewelry and champagne to show up in a photo!Send this card to someone fabulous!

Loyal & True Stamp Set, Be Merry DSP, & Cracked Ice

For today’s card, I wanted to make something patriotic, since we have Memorial Day and Independence Day coming before long. I looked at my Designer Series Papers and realized the perfect pattern came from the Be Merry set. While it was designed for Christmas projects, it’s actually quite versatile. See how well it works with the Loyal & True stamp set on this card. The cracked ice technique looks great on this paper, too. It lends a worn, antique look to the card, like it’s seen lots of battle, carried in the pocket of a soldier.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Dapper Denim card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″

  • Be Merry Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″

Stamped with the Loyal & True stamp set:

Cut using the Best Badge Punch:

Cracked Ice Technique:

  • covered the DSP layer with Versamark ink, then covered it in Clear embossing powder, then melted it with a Heat Tool
  • repeated the process 5 more times, to make it 6 layers thick
  • put the DSP layer in a plastic baggie in the freezer for a while (I left it overnight, but I’m sure an hour or so would be fine.)
  • removed the DSP layer from the plastic bag, then bent it in various places with my fingers
  • NOTE: Just bend the paper, don’t fold it, or it may split all the way through

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the Dapper Denim card base with a Bone Folder
  • Daffodil Delight CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • cracker ice DSP layer glued onto the Daffodil Delight CS layer
  • sentiment adhered to the DSP layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals

BOGO Yard Sale & Open House

Open House & BOGO Sale #stampcandy

If you’ll be in the Atlanta area Saturday, June 2, 2018, you must stop by for my BOGO Yard Sale and Open House. The door opens at noon. You can drop in anytime between noon and 4pm. Of course, the closer to noon you arrive, the better your chances of getting all the BOGO sale goodies you want!

It’s free to attend, but please RSVP here so I’ll have enough of everything prepared.

VERY IMPORTANT: Park along the street (Woodcliff) behind our building. DO NOT part next to any of the units in the complex, or you will be towed and I will be fined. Thanks!

BOGO Yard Sale:

Why am I calling it a BOGO Yard Sale? Because you pay yard sale prices, plus you still get the Buy One Get One deal!

Usually at a BOGO Sale of this type, the BOGO Sale items are marked full retail price, then whatever you spend gets applied to an order from the catalog. This time I’m doing it a little differently.

I’m reclaiming my room upstairs, so I must make space. I have a LOT of great craft supplies that must go. So I’ve marked them down drastically – most items are at least 50% off, many even more than that. So you’ll save a ton of money on the yard sale items PLUS whatever you spend still gets applied to an order from the brand new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! 

 

  • shop my craft yard sale
  • whatever you spend gets applied to an order of new items from the new catalog
  • you only pay shipping and tax on the new items
  • lots of retired Stampin’ Up! products, even the ones I’ve been holding onto because I love them so much!
  • other brands are included in the BOGO Yard Sale including Martha Stewart, Tim Holtz, Anna Griffin, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Darice, McGill, Creative Memories, and many more!
  • have your new catalog order ready to save time ordering
  • If you’ve ordered from me in the past year, I will send you a catalog in May. If not, you can get your catalog at the event. I’ll have the pdf version of the full catalog posted HERE on June 1.

A sea of stamps, still to be marked down to 50% or more offBOGO Yard Sale prep #stampcandy
