Welcome to the last Artisan Wednesday Wow hop for the 2013 Artisan Design Team! Wow…that was hard to say.  If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.  Before I start on my project….I just have to say what a joy it has been to follow Jeanna in the hop all year.  She is such a talented designer and a lovely person.

Jul FB - Be You {tiful}

This card came about in that fun kind of creative way.  At first I was completely overwhelmed.  After all, how to create a project that reflects this year on the Artisan team?  First of all it had to be a card.  Because that is my true happy place.  Then I started playing around with the new Flower Patch stamp set…because you all probably know by now that I love a flower.  Gold…gold is the new silver, black, whatever….Bonnie Thurber told us so at Convention last year and I didn’t quite believe her.  I should have!  It is so awesome!  And then stenciling.  It is trendy and so fun to experiment with the ones from SU.  I stamped the flower in Versamark Ink and then embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  A quick run through the Big Shot with the Flower Fair Framelits to cut them out.  I stamped the speckles from Gorgeous Grunge and the sentiment onto Whisper White and embossed with the gold again.  Then I pulled out the chevron stencil from the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit.  I put it down on the card and added some Light Molding Paste on top of it (there are variations of these embossing pastes with different consistencies….this is pretty thick and dries pretty fast).  When I pulled the stencil up, I loved the effect.  I pulled off some of the gold thread from the Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine and wrapped it around my fingers.  When I was happy with the look, I secured the ends with a glue dot and placed it on the card.  Then I added the flowers/leaves with Dimensionals/Glue Dots.  I threaded a little left over metallic thread through the Vintage Faceted Button and attached it.  Some Gold Foil behind the image panel as a frame and done.

This sentiment actually means a lot to me as I made this card.  About a year and a half ago, I decided to take a leap of faith and enter the Artisan Design Team contest.  After working on the 10 projects for months, I felt like I had a pretty good representation of me as a stamper to show (you can see the posts by clicking here).  But my fear was that maybe my style was too clean.  What I discovered is that Stampin’ Up truly loves and values ALL stamping styles.  Just look at the variety on the team and you’ll see what I mean.  I can never fully say how much their choosing me to represent them for a year has meant!  They empowered me to be ME, creatively!  And you know what?  That applies to you too.  When you make things that reflect your style, it can be a little intimidating.  You know that voice….what if “they” don’t like it, what if “they” feel it is too clean/fussy/layered/simple/fill in your description here.  This year taught me to ignore that voice and continue to take those leaps of faith.  You can too!  Whatever you create, because it is made by you, really is Be You {tiful}!

Adventures for the Display Boards

As promised, another post about my Convention Display Board projects!  (Remember to click on the button above to link to all the other display stampers on our Pinterest board)

What am I up to today?  Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  While some of our focus was on three specific stamp sets, we also had the option to include some projects made with Project Life.  What is this?  It is a memory keeping system that is super simple and fun.  No stressing about layouts and lots of design elements and hard stuff and…..  Nope.  No stressing.  The key is keeping it simple.  Pictures and some fun printed cards and journaling the story with the pictures.  But me being me, I had to make some cards with it too.  Because this system is versatile.  So you will actually use it! (Click any pictures to see them larger)

Project Life - Every day note cards

So it started by accident.  I thought the biggest of the cards (4″ x 6″)  from the Everyday Adventures PL x SU set would be super cute folded in half to make 4″ x 3″ note cards.  So I started looking through the stack to figure out which ones worked best with the folding.  Many of them it seems.  So I chose a color variety.  And then I started adding on things from the Everyday Adventures Accessory Pack.  And buttons, staples, a little ribbon, Baker’s Twine….whatever worked.  Then I pulled out the Project Life Corner Punch and went wild with it too.  It was fun, it was quick and I LOVE how they turned out.  It was hard to send them in.  Of course they needed little envelopes so I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board to make them out of coordinating card stock in just the right size.

Project Life - Note card box

And then I made them a special box.  A little tin I had (from the Container Store, I think).  Another card and some more fun doodads (that is the official term I will now use for the accessories) and a little bit of card stock behind the see-through top and some more ribbon.  Fun, huh?  Conveniently the right size.  I’d like to say I planned it but I wasn’t that smart.  I was lucky!  And you could always build them a box out of the new box punchboard (you KNOW that will be awesome – it is in the new Holiday Catalog and you will get to see it soon!).

Project Life - Love u

And because all the PL x SU stuff was all over my desk by this time, I started on a more traditional card.  Again just playing and layering with cards big and small and all the cool doodads.  Because Project Life is all about fun and did I mention no stress?  Yes, no stress.  Layouts are simple because the cards fit the special Project Lifepages.  Just add pictures.  Want to see all of the products available so far?  Click here:

I’ll be back soon with more projects.  Maybe even tomorrow if I have time to edit some more pictures.  Out flying around this weekend so keep an eye out for me!  Until then…happy stamping!

Freshly Made Sketches #146

FMS Final 146-001

Welcome back for another Freshly Made Sketches card!  Amy O’Neill is our hostess this week.  She is an incredible stamper…I always love her style and color combinations…so no surprise that she created a fun sketch too!

FMS146 - Layered Flower

I kept this one pretty clean today and focused on the “Flower” product suite.  I stamped the flowers from Flower Patch in Midnight Muse (ret), Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Pumpkin Pie.  Not exactly the colors from the Flowerpot DSP but close.  The paper prints are so pretty that I wanted them to shine in this so I chose the polka dots and added in a couple of strips of coordinating patterns.  The Flower Fair Framelits keep this simple because they do all the cutting for you!  Love that!  A white button and some Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine to finish it off.  This is one that is easy to make in multiples and would made a cute set!  I let off the sentiment and will just add one inside when I’m ready to use it.

There is a fantastic variety over at the challenge today!  The team has created some beautiful work!  Don’t forget to join in and let Amy know how much you appreciate this one!

Back this weekend with another set of projects I created as a Display Stamper.  If you want to catch up with all that has been posted, we have a Pinterest board dedicated to the projects created for Convention by the Display Stamper group.

Artisan Wednesday Wow – Make a Wish

10366068_10201923663565568_6781857349774765917_n

Welcome to the fourth Artisan Wednesday Wow hop of our team’s last month! It is so hard to believe that this year is almost over. If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.

AWW Jul - Make a Wish

So we are closing in on the end of my year as a member of the Artisan Design Team 2013.  Wow….what an experience this has been.  I have been a part of something really special.  Something that doesn’t always come around and something that you have to just take in and appreciate.  The bonds I have made with this year’s team are more than I could have ever imagined.  But more than that, I have been able to form friendships with more stampers and get to see behind the curtain a bit at Stampin’ Up!  You know what?  It has made me love and value this company even more.

So, this card.  The team agreed that we HAD to do a swap for Convention.  Yeah…no pressure!  How does one make a swap for 9 of the most talented stampers I know?  I tried all kinds of things but finally just came to this.  A clean card in one of my favorite colors.  The new Stars Framelits are such fun and lead to so many cool ideas.  I chose to make another shaker card (I think I’m on a kick with these).  I cut out star from the White Vellum Card Stock and put two together with the 2013-15 In Color Sequins inside.  Then I sewed them together.  After forming the little packets, I cut another star out of the Crumb Cake layer.  I stamped with Kinda Eclectic and distressed then Sponged with Soft Suede ink.  I created my sentiment with the Alphabet Rotary Stamp.  This thing is SERIOUSLY cool.  You need one.  Yes you do.  Just get it.  I clipped the ends of the sentiment panel with my Banner Punch and distressed again.  The main panel is up on Dimensionals and I attached the shaker packet using the new Fast Fuse Adhesive.  That stuff is strong and things won’t budge…and it is clear.  So no seeing through the doubled vellum of the star packet.  Finally I attached some more of the sequins using the Multipurpose Glue.  This takes a little patience but I love the result.  Maybe not a quick and easy card but these girls are so worth the time!  Back to the sentiment for a bit.  I chose this (did I mention how cool it is that you can say what you want with that stamp?) because of the obvious “wishing on a star”.  But also because a little over a year ago, I took a leap of faith and made a wish.  And it came true.  Bigger and better than even I could have expected!

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber (who, by the way is a 2014-15 Artisan Design Team member….the first world wide team).  I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!

Seasonally Scattered in Gold

10494554_10152594044857329_7043287500476660222_n

The day is finally here!  I can start sharing projects I created for the display boards at Stampin’ Up’s Annual Convention in Salt Lake City.  While I was not able to go this year (and yes, I am really missing out on lots of fun), at least some of my work is there.  So without further ado…I introduce to you…..Seasonally Scattered!

Seasonally Scattered - Take out box

Today I am sharing a group of projects all made with this fun stamp and the suite of gold products that Stampin’ Up has available.  While this stamp won’t be available for customers until August 28th, the rest of the products are in the new 2014-15 Catalog.  This takeout box is just the same as last week’s Artisan Team project.  I printed the template onto the back side and cut it out of Gold Soiree DSP.  Super easy.  But guess what, in the new Holiday Catalog, there are new (and even EASIER) box options for DSP (takeout boxes, a box punchboard, and more!).  Yep…no excuses not to create boxes with your DSP!  I stamped with Gold Encore Ink onto White Vellum Card Stock and then embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I used my Banners Framelits to cut it into a tag.  Using Gold Foil, I cut a bigger banner with the framelits and then hand cut a little one out of Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.  I took a Vintage Faceted Button and inked it up then embossed it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder too.  (Be careful on that one…trust me)  I tied some Gold Sequin Trim around the box and then added on the button tied with Gold Metallic Baker’s Twine.  Cute, shiny and fun!

Seasonally Scattered - Gold Love

Next up a “sister” card to the box.  I created the image panel the same way as the tag above.  I layered it onto a Gold Foil panel and wrapped the narrow gold pieces around the back to help hide glue and keep it together (it is all about concealing with Vellum).  Then I tied up the Vintage Faceted Button with Baker’s Twine again and added it to the sequin trim.  The main panel is embossed with Decorative Dots.  Perfect card to go with your little gift!

Seasonally Scattered - Merry Scrapbook

Finally a fun scrapbook page.  Yes, it is a shaker page.  Because why not?!  I stamped the sentiment in gold and embossed again.  Using an 8″ x 8″ base of Soft Suede Card Stock, I added a strip of Gold Soiree DSP  Then attached the vellum panel but starting to sew around the edges.  Before finishing I added some sequins loosened from the Gold Sequin Trim and finished the pocket part of the page.  I cut a frame from Whisper White and “distressed” it with gold ink and embossing then added some extra stitching.  I added a picture of my boys that I had edited in My Digital Studio and threw on a little more of the sequin trim.  I love this page.  I had a hard time sending it in.  Good thing it isn’t too hard to duplicate!

Now for more info on display stamping.  While we were all hard at work making our samples, this amazing group of stampers cheered on each other’s progress.  We eventually decided to create a group Pinterest page so that you could see all this stamping goodness in one place.  We will use the logo above (at the top of my post…linked to the page too) to help you find us and also link our work to the page as we post on our blogs.  I recommend you just follow that board.  Seriously.  You are going to be in awe!!

I’ll be back soon with more projects and stay tuned for my last two weeks of Artisan team work. Until then…see you soon and happy stamping!

Freshly Made Sketches #145

Pin It

FMS Final 145-001

You all know Narelle as the queen of fussy cutting but she is also amazing at creating sketches!  Just take a look at what she has for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!!  Yeah, I know….fabulous!  So fabulous that it took me a bit to narrow down all the ideas I had.

FMS145 - Blended Elements

Basically the decision was made for me when I picked up this already colored flower that I had made while my mom was visiting.  I was showing her all the cool stuff you can do with Blendabilities and we use this retired Elements of Style stamp to play with.  She chose it from my BOGO offerings after she made an order (for Blendabilities, of course).  The depth of color from these markers really is fantastic!  And yes, you can use them on other than White/Vanilla paper.  You have to watch the bleed a little because the paper weave is looser but it is easy enough to get the feel for it!  I combined it with the Dictionary Background Stamp after cutting my colored image out with the Ovals Framelits.  All I had to do was add on some retired Naturals Ribbon and the new Venetian Crochet Trim (LOVE this trim!!).  I tied a Very Vintage Button with some Linen Thread and called it done.  YAY…..I actually used a panel from my “to-make” pile!  Piece by piece I’m trying to catch up!

So this weekend I can actually start posting some of my projects from display stamping but where should I start??  With a brand new set from the Holiday Catalog (being released to demos later this week) OR with Kinda Eclectic OR with Amazing Birthday??  I’d love to know what YOU want to see first so let me know!

I hope your week is great!  Until this weekend….have a great rest of your week!

Artisan Wednesday Wow – Blooming Take Out Box

Welcome to the second Artisan Wednesday Wow hop of our team’s last month! It is so hard to believe that this year is almost over. If you just came over from the amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.

AWW Jul - Blooming Takeout Box

So what to make for you all this week to showcase some of the latest fun stuff from my July box?  Well, how about a tag made with the oh so adorable Flower Patch stamp set and a coordinating take out box made with the Flowerpot DSP?  Yep…I thought you might like that!  I found a mini takeout box template when working on my Display Stamper projects for Convention.  All I had to do was print it on my DSP and cut it out (yes, by hand…no e-cutter here).  But it is quick and creates such a fun box that the cutting really is ok.  Really!  I created a tag using Whisper White and the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch along with the Corner Punch.  Then all I had to do was attach flowers that had been stamped and cut out.  Yes….these were also by hand but there are convenient framelits to make it way easier if you want!  What better way to attach the tag but with this fabulous little clothespin from the 2014-2016 In Color Clothespins collection.  I’m completed addicted to them!!!!  Just wait until I can share more after Convention starts!!  One more look at this tag because it would be equally cute on any of Stampin’ Up’s boxes or bags!

AWW Jul - Blooming Tag

I wrapped up the box with a little bit of Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine and the packaging is complete. Super easy, super cute and sure to make someone’s day!

Well, the trek to the annual Stampin’ Up Convention in Salt Lake City has begun.  Sadly, I won’t be there this year since I’ll be flying.  But my Stampin’ Up friends will be having a ball and sending me updates so I’ll try to share any big news with you while I’m out on the road.  The good news…I’ll be able to start sharing all the projects I made as a display stamper!  Look for that to begin this weekend.

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!

Freshly Made Sketches #144

FMS Final 144-001

Another week, another amazing sketch from Freshly Made Sketches!  This time, our fabulous layout is from the oh so cool Karren Johnson.  Thank goodness I found it fast to use because I have been short on time this week.  I was out on a 4 day trip over the long weekend and then the boys had a swim meet on Monday.  If you have ever been to a swim meet, you know that means no time for stamping.  Yesterday the family and I went out adventuring…something we haven’t done enough of this summer.  So….a quick card it is for you today!

FMS144 - Thankful for youI took a leap with my interpretation of the sketch and instead of a panel, I chose to stencil on some stars with the new Hearts & Stars Masks.  These are so easy to use and are such fun too.  I used Lost Lagoon (a new In Color) and a Sponge Dauber.  For the banner, I pulled out Amazing Birthday and stamped Daffodil Delight onto White Vellum Card Stock and then embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Then I stamped the banner sentiment with Lagoon again.  A run through the Big Shot with the Banners Framelits and the two banners were done.  I added on a button tied with the new Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine (I find it goes with all the yellows) and done.  Yep….quick.  But still really fun too.

The team has created some amazing cards.  A big variety which I always love!  Make sure you go check out all the great creations!

I’m in a big push to finish some swaps for next week’s Stampin’ Up Convention.  I’m not able to go this year but I am still swapping with some fabulous stampers who are kind enough to let me in with them!  Kind of makes me feel like I’m not missing as much.  As soon as Convention starts I will have tons to share!  The swaps, my Display Board samples….can’t wait!  Hope you week is going great.  See you soon!

Artisan Wednesday Wow – Happy Birthday Shaker Card

AWW Jul - Happy Shaker Card

I thought it would be fun to focus on the new Little Letters Thinlits today!  They are great for punching out letters for your projects, of course.  But they are also wonderful when use in the negative version.  Just line them up to create a word and roll through your Big Shot.  For this one, I rolled just one “P” through and then created the rest of the word with a second roll.  I wanted this to be a shaker card with a masculine flair so I kept to the Black/Vanilla colors except for the touch of gold from the sequins.  To create the shaker, I first backed the “HAPPY” piece with a Window Sheet. Then using the edges from my Dimensionals page, I created a rectangle just a bit bigger than the words and put in a bunch of sequins pulled off the Gold Sequin Trim.  I added the Basic Black backing and the shaker is done.  Easy!  I love the numbers print from Typeset DSP and it seemed to be made for a birthday card!  All I needed was a few extra sequins and I think I created a nice masculine card?  What to you think?

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!

Happy 4th of July!

Just a quick post to wish a happy Independence Day to all of my US readers!  I hope that wherever you are celebrating, you have a fun and safe holiday!  I know that some of you have been seeing nature’s fireworks over the last few days (I’m in Newark unplanned right now because of some of those!) but I hope that you get to enjoy the brightly colored ones too!

Jun MPP WreathA quick share on a project I made with June’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  I held a Paper Pumpkin Fun Night for my local subscribers and we worked together to make the cute little pinwheels.  As we were creating, we discussed fun ways to use them.  I pulled out this wreath that was already wrapped with burlap ribbon and started placing the pinwheels and thought it was coming together.  My mom (who was in town visiting) suggested some red ribbon.  So I added this stitched ribbon (retired).  I thought a great party idea would be to attach the pinwheels to canning jars and use them for drinks/decorations.

image copySee how she put names on each one?  Cool, huh?!  She used my Alphabet Rotary Stamp to personalize them!! (Sorry for the picture quality….taken with my phone)

imageI took some of mine and made this cute little centerpiece.

What will the next Paper Pumpkin hold??  I can wait to see!!  If you would like to try it out, you can become a monthly subscriber (see link in my sidebar) or you can try it for a prepaid period of time.  Click the image below to check it out!
