  Here is the Freshly Made Sketches #293 sketch for this week, and here is what I decided to create with it.

Crafting Forever for Freshly Made Sketches card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

Two of my favourite items from the New Annual Catalogue, the Crafting Forever Stamp set and the Whole Lot of Love Designer Paper.

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Crafting Forever for Freshly Made Sketches Card:

  • I don’t have a circle die this big, so I traced around a bowl, attached the cut out piece to my designer paper before trimming it to fit.
  • The stitched edge is created with the thin tip end of the Basic Black Stampin Write Marker
  • I stamped the pens in Archival Basic Black and coloured one with Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Smoky Slate Markers before fussy cutting it out.
  • The Pen is attached with thin pieces of Dimensionals just to add a little depth.

Clean and Simple and No Extra Postage Required – whoo hoo.

Pigs CAN fly


Hi stamping friends, I have a fun share for you today, I call it “Pigs CAN fly”  because on this card they do, haha…  What would you call a flock of pigs?

This little Piggy Stamp set from Stampin Up Pigs can fly card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

One small update first – for my May Host Code ordering Customers.

the back-ordered Designer Paper finally arrived and all the Paper Shares and Thank You cards went out in the mail on Tuesday morning so watch your mailbox and thank you again for supporting my little online business, I sure appreciate it.

————————————————————————————————–

This adorable little stamp is from the This Little Piggy stamp set, new in the annual catalogue.

This little Piggy Stamp set from Stampin Up Pigs can fly card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

Check out the background of this card, I was also playing with the NEW Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks (stencils).

I’m working on a couple more samples so I can do a video for you in the meantime, here is a little one from Stampin’ Up!  If you are viewing this in an e-mail, you may need to CLICK HERE to visit my blog to view the video.

.

 

Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Pigs CAN fly card:

I started with watercolor paper and Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise ink pads.  I used my Aqua painter to lightly watercolor the background and dried it with my heat tool.

I used the cloud mask and the embossing paste, removed the mask and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds glitter into the paste before it dried.

TIP – make sure you wipe off your mask and tools and then rinse them well before the paste dries.

While the paste was drying, I stamped that flying piggy on watercolor paper 3 times and aqua painted her with Powder Pink and FLirty Flamingo.  I used Wink of Stella on her wings for some added glimmer.

Once I cut them all out I used Dimensionals to attach them.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of Whisper White and for some added interest, cut the words apart.  I rolled up a bit of Silver Metallic Thread and placed it on the card before I attached the words.  The Dimensionals on the back help to hold the thread in place for me.

Lastly I added a sprinkling of the NEW Mini Silver Sequins.

Hope you enjoyed today’s share and I love hearing from you, you can leave me a comment here:

Stamp and Spritz for Cool Stampin Tools


Hi stampers, my share today is something new, Stamp and Spritz for Cool Stampin Tools.

Cool Stampin Tools by Sandi @ www.stampinwithsandi.com

This is a new program I’m starting where I will highlight a Stampin Up Tool (new and old) and share a project created with it.

And sorry this post came out half baked yesterday afternoon, I accidentally hit post instead of update while I was building it.

Stamp and Spritz for Cool Stampin Tools with Daisy Delight and Jar of Love Stamp Sets - technique and card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

To start things off –  it’s the Stampin Spritzer!

There are lots of spritzers out there, believe me, I own them all.  I give Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Spritz a AAA though and not just because I sell them.

  • They are created out of light weight plastic – great for traveling
  • They have a lid – whoo hoo – no accidents in my travel bag – and it won’t roll off my work table
  • They are clear so you can see what color is inside
  • The spritzer itself has a mighty blast – not one of those wimpy little puffs!
  • Price point is excellent 2/$4.00 (cdn), inexpensive enough to have one for every colour.
  • You can add water/alcohol, and Stampin’ Up! re-inkers to create coloured sprays.

You can view them in my online store here:

Let’s make a project with these little guys.  I call this Stamp & Spritz – mostly because that’s exactly what you do to create the cool background on this card.

Stamp and Spritz for Cool Stampin Tools with Daisy Delight and Jar of Love Stamp Sets - technique and card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

The video below is a little long.   I walk you through, how to do the flowers, how to watercolour the jar, and lastly, how to create the “stamp & spritz” background.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous – Stampin Up


Hi stamping friends, my share today is created with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous -Stampin Up Stamp Set, from page 77 of the New Annual Catalogue.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous - Stampin Up stamp set, card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

It’s time for our monthly DREAM THEME blog hop and Birthdays are our theme for this month.

Check out pages 76 and 77 in the new Annual Catalogue for some great card and parcel ideas created with the Foil Frenzy Suite which includes this “Happy Birthday Gorgeous” set.  The set includes anwww.theseare array of small images and a wonderful selection of sentiments for any age.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous - Stampin Up stamp set, card by Sandi @ stampinwithsandi.com

I chose to focus on a few of the smaller images for my card today, stamping them in black ink and then using my blender pen and ink pad lids of Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist to accent the images.  I decided not to colour them in fully for a kind of “retro vibe”.

Happy Birthday Thinlits from Stampin Up

One of our most popular new dies this year is the Happy Birthday Thinlit.  Perfect as a whole, or cut it apart and use the words separately.
