Stampin' Up! Chase Your Dreams Holidays themed ATC's

Each month I am joining fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my team and we are making ATC's based on a theme. 10 themes for the 10 years that I will have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for (in September 2017). This months theme was "Holidays" and I used the Sydney Opera House image from the retiring Chase Your Dreams stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. 

In case you missed the previous months ATC's, the theme was Summer.

Stampin' Up! annual catalogue & occasions catalogue retiring blog hop featuring balloon adventures

Blog-logo
Today I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016 - 2017 annual and 2017 occasions catalogues.
Selected retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on May 31st. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!

You may have come to my blog from Catherine Proctor. Blog hops are full circles, so start blog hopping here and and the end of my post (and everyone else's) there is a link to the next post. I've also got a list of all 11 other blog hop participants at the end in case of broken links.

I've used the balloon adventures stamp set and co-ordinating framelits (which is also available as a bundle at a 10% discount) but are currently cheaper to purchase individually with the discounts that have Stampin' Up! have applied (with them being retiring products).

I've used the distressed glue technique and sponge daubers to create the inked cardstock that I die cut out using the balloon pop-up thinlet dies. I cut out an extra piece of the "banner" in whisper white cardstock to create the raised sentiment for the "party on" panel. I also used a piece of vellum cardstock to tone down the emerald envy cardstock (in the card background so it wasn't competing with the distressed glue panel.)

Stampin' Up! Easter goodie bags featuring celebrate today and suite sentiment stamp sets

I made my little nephews carrot goodie bags for Easter this year. I finished each bag with a gift tag stamped "Happy Easter" using wild wasabi and pumpkin pie inkpads to echo the colours of the carrot.

Stampin' Up! Thank You card featuring "Hello You" thinlits

As another domestic basketball season has drawn to a close, I once again volunteered to make thank you cards for the coaches.

I choose to use the "Hello You" thinlits as my main greeting and die cut both the "thanks" and "you" words in pacific point cardstock. As you will have noticed, the card doesn't read "thanks you" as I cut the extra "s" off the word "thanks" using my paper snips.

Did you know that the "Hello You" thinlits have a coordinating stamp set called "Crazy About You". It is available in wood mount, clear mount and photopolymer and is on the annual Stampin' Up! retiring product list.

I was originally going for a different design for this card, a Z fold actually but, one of the girls in the team wrote on the card as if she was the only person to write on that section. A little scanning and photoshop magic made it fit with some of the other signatures. I have to track down a few more girls before the game tomorrow (there game is to see who finishes 3rd or 4th on the ladder for the season) hence the additional white panel.

The basketball used on the card front was an image I downloaded from the internet and can be found here. The basketball playing girls I covered with fine tip glue pen were cut using my electronic die cutting machine.

Stampin' Up! no stamp stamping ATC's featuring gorgeous grunge & timeless textures

February ATC's theme on our team forum was "no stamp stamping". Stamps could used on the ATC but it also needed to focus on some no stamping which could be done with embossing folders, erasers, bubble wrap etc. I went with paper scrunching and ink which is used on my t-shirts and I stamped the background of the ATC with my favourite stamp set, gorgeous grunge which is on the Stampin' Up! retirement list. Sob!

Midway through making my ATC's I made my nephews first birthday card featuring Elmo and I used the same technique on Elmo.
