Petal Palette Thank You Card & Happy Anniversary Paper Pumpkin!

A friend recently asked me “what’s your style”?  That’s easy – French Country. A French Country style is always rustic, old-world and welcoming. It incorporates ruffles, distressed woods and mixed patterns. If an item has a “history” I’m in love with it! After nearly three decades of marriage, Bob the Builder and I agreed that our decor needed updating. Our color palette completed changed as well. We ditched the burgundy and browns and used lots of off white and taupe. We recently added an old louvered door, window frames and a vintage chair.  Decorating has long been a passion of mine. I consider creating hand stamped cards just another form of decorating!

The Petal Palette stamp set has the perfect French Country feel to it. The Petal Passion designer paper is purposely distressed with areas of light and dark patterns which coordinate with the sketched images in the stamp set. I’ve found the Petal Palette Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits) to be so versatile that I’ve chosen it to be the March edition of Studio Stamps in the Mail. Ordering will begin March 14th.

Today’s video project includes the beautiful Petal Passion Suite of products and of course – a little bling!  I’ve included pictures and cutting dimensions below so be sure to scroll down past the video to see them.  I’ve also include a complete list of supplies with pictures. The images are linked to my online store making it easy for you to see them enlarged.  If you see something you like, don’t forget, I offer generous online ordering REWARDS. You can read all about my REWARDS program HERE.

Customer testimonies about Studio Stamps in the Mail

  • “SSITM is the BEST! I have a ton of stamps and supplies yet I find it difficult to sit down long enough to make projects with my own supplies and I always want the newest products. The cards and projects are beautiful and the cards I’ve given have  gotten rave reviews. Lisa provides the supplies including the stamps, paper, ribbon, and of course, the bling! You get a new stamp set, and most times, a coordinating accessory each month. It’s a great way to get new products and supplies AND instructions for beautiful projects. SSITM is THEE way to make cards/projects affordably and quickly.” – Marcie D., Florida
  •  “Your SSITM editions are wonderful! The contents are thorough, creative, informative and gracious!  The quality of the kit is great, everything is cut evenly and correctly so there is no guesswork. The PDF tutorials give fantastic directions for those of us that love to read along before doing the actual project. An invaluable tool. The video included is super… easy to listen to, to follow along and it gives many great tips along the way. They are a great help if there are any questions about putting the card together correctly.  Lisa MORE than covers all aspects of the card making process which allows the cards to come together seamlessly!  I have gotten many kits through the years and I enjoy Lisa’s Studio Stamps in the Mail so much!”   – Kay B., North Carolina
  • “I seriously love Studio Stamps in the Mail.  I can not wait month to month for the next one!  They are easy to accomplish and the quality of the kit is top notch.  I am a person who does not like to cut paper – and hooray – all the paper is pre-cut and ready to use.  The video and PDF tutorial are remarkable. It’s very easy to follow and you can start and stop at any point.  If you are a beginner this is a great way to get started!” – Helen B, Florida
  • “I’ve purchased two Studio Stamps in the Mail so far and plan on purchasing more in 2018. I watched the videos and did not have to watch it again to make the cards because the PDF tutorials were so thorough and complete.  I already had 1 of the items for one of the SSITM editions and it was easy to substitute another item for my purchase. Lisa is quick to respond and so helpful.” – Cathy Z., Pennsylvania
  • “I have several of the monthly Studio Stamps in the Mail and am amazed at her attention to detail. Even the glitter is put in a Ziplock bag! One time I lost the video and just emailed her and she resent it. Her videos are great and I can pause them anytime I want to work on my card and then restart the video which allows me to work at my own pace. I can’t say enough about her talent and the time she puts into these monthly editions.” – Leanna C., Washington
  • “I have received 2 Studio Stamps in the Mail editions and loved them both. The PDF tutorials are well written and easy to follow. It is easy to see Lisa is detail oriented.  All the items needed for cards were included! I also appreciate her flexibility in the order. If you already have, or personally do not like an item, Lisa will arrange a substitution of similar value.” – Pamela J., Florida

Spotlight with Lisa Recap – Magical Day Wizard

Last night’s Spotlight with Lisa Facebook live event was lots of fun! If you missed it live, you can watch the recording here. I also know that some of you aren’t on Facebook and I hate to see you left out!

I used the Magical Day Bundle to create the card shown below and taught how to create a large sponged background using various colors to create depth. I also added some sparkle (surprise, I know, right?!) with silver embossing powder. My tip about the embossing powder on this background is different from what you may think so be sure to check it the video.

The products used on this project are the same ones included in this month’s edition of Studio Stamps in the Mail (SSITM).  Near the end of the video I show you the products and completed cards you included in this month’s edition.  SSITM includes pre-cut supplies to make 8 cards; 2 each of 4 different designs, embellishments and envelopes. Stamp right along with me from home using the video and PDF tutorial I include. Stop and start as often as you’d like, whenever you’d like. PLUS, this month’s edition will include a Sale-A-Bration selection!

The Magical Day Bundle has unlimited possibilities and it’s something fresh among the stamps in my collection.  I’m thoroughly enjoying it and I know you will too!  You will need some supplies so be sure to check out all the details HERE. Join us for this month’s edition of SSITMOrdering ends on Saturday, February 17th at 11:59PM EST.

Quick Crafting Tip – Coloring with Brusho & Spotlight with Lisa Tonight

I’m continuing my series on Brusho crystals. These intriguing crystals are activated when they come into contact with water creating a burst of color. Today’s quick tip video will teach you how to color using Brusho, both as a washed background and to color in images using a heat embossed resist technique. It may sound “fancy” but it’s simple.  I’ll provide lots of tips along the way so you can achieve successful results.

If you missed the first video in this Brusho series you can view it HERE. I’ve also included the pictures for the cards shared in the video below. Be sure to scroll down to see them. Remember, too, that you can order all the supplies in my online store. I offer exclusive and generous REWARDS for your orders. Details about my REWARDS program can be found HERE.

Epic Rock Star & Studio Stamps in the Mail

The February edition of Studio Stamps in the Mail begins today. You won’t want to miss the magical fun that I’ve included this month!  This month’s SSITM includes the Magical Day Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits), a package of pearls and FREE pre-cuts supplies to make 8 cards. I also include a video and PDF tutorial making it easy for you to stamp right along with me from home. Everything is sent Priority Mail right to your home.

Epic Rock Star!

I’m sure you have a ‘rock star’ on your birthday card list. I’ve got three great nephews who are always playing ‘air guitar’, singing and dancing to whatever song is on the radio.

The rock star feel to this card is played up well with the retro marquee arrow highlighting the text from the Marquee Messages stamp set “party like a rock star”.

It's time to party like a rock star with this neon bright card featuring a stylish guitar and bold arrow complete with a bulb like technique. Epic Celebration and Marquee Messages by Stampin' Up!

If you look closely at this 4″ x 4″ card you’ll see that I covered the circles to make them resemble light bulbs on a marquee sign. Once the entire card was finished and assembled I added Fine-Tip Glue to each of those circles and allowed it to sit and dry.  The result is a textured surface that you can’t resist touching.

This retro arrow points to partying like a rock star featuring a neon bright card and a stylish guitar. Epic Celebration and Marquee Messages by Stampin' Up!

The guitar fits with this sentiment perfectly and is part of the free Sale-A-Bration selections called “Epic Celebrations”.  I heat embossed the image using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I wanted it to remain subtle so as not to take away from that bright neon arrow.

This aerial view of a neon birthday card features a stylish guitar and bold arrow complete with a bulb like technique. Epic Celebration and Marquee Messages by Stampin' Up!

Happy Valentine’s Day! 29 years ago today I said “I do” to the man of my dreams. We have no special plans to celebrate today other than enjoying a quiet home-cooked meal. We learned 29 years ago that dining out on Valentine’s Day is chaotic. I’d much rather have a heart-shaped box filled with chocolaty goodness.  Bob the Builder knows that’s an ‘expected treat’ on this holiday!

Spotlight with Lisa – Thursday!

Mark your calendar for tomorrow, Thursday, February 15th at 8PM EST – 5PM PST – 6PM MST – 7PM CST for my LIVE Facebook demonstration called “Spotlight with Lisa“.  During this event I will share a new project idea, lots of tips and interactive fun.
