Creative Inking Blog Hop: Two Step Stamping

Blog Hop Title

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by - I have a fresh and summery card for you today!

Delightful Daisy Black-Eyed Susan - 1

I created this card with the Delightful Daisy stamp set and coordinating punch.  This stamp set is considered a "two step" stamping because the stem is a separate image so you can stamp it as step 1 in one color (Old Olive was used here) and then in step 2 stamp the flower in a separate color (Crushed Curry).  I also used the Layered Leaves embossing folder for the background and the Softly Falling embossing folder for the flower centers.

Delightful Daisy Black-Eyed Susan - 2

I stamped the flower two times on Crushed Curry card stock and punched out both flowers with the Daisy punch. The I cut the flowers in half to change the daisies into brown eyed Susan flowers! NOTE: This new punch has out sold every other punch we have carried the last 5 years.  Because of the extreme popularity Stampin' Up! it is currently out of stock. The punch (and the bundle that includes the punch and the stamp set) are currently not able to be ordered until (approximately) the first week in August.  If you would like to be notified when the punch is available to order, contact your demonstrator!

Delightful Daisy Black-Eyed Susan - 3

The greeting is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I stamped it in Early Espresso and cut it out with the Layering Ovals Dies.  The Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon was the perfect accent!

Delightful Daisy Black-Eyed Susan - 4

The flower center is punched out with the 1/2" circle punch.  Additional products used are listed below!

Creative Inking Blog Hop: Bundle Extravaganza!

Blog Hop Title

Our theme this month is all about the bundles  - bundles are two or more products that are sold together at a discount.  My customers LOVE the bundles because these are products that are MADE to go together and you can SAVE money!!  I have several favorite bundles in this new catalog so it was tough to decide which one to focus on today.  But in the end I just had to go with the Colorful Seasons and Season Layers Framelit Thinlits Dies.  I LOVE the versatility of this bundle and I know I will be using it in every season of the year!  

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 1

This card was made using mostly the dies (except the outside sentiment which is from the stamp set).

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 9

And this card was made using just the stamps from the Colorful Season set.  

Colorful Seasons Bundle - 1

As you can see by the HUGE number of dies in this set, I've barely cracked the surface on all the possibilities with this great bundle!  

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 8

Both cards also feature the beautiful Color Theory designer paper stack.  This pretty paper is in a 6" x 6" stack and features and ombre and paint chip look on one side and a crackle design on the other.

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 2

I love this Adirondack chair from the die set - it just says "summer" to me!!  And the peek of the branches and Color Theory paper through the oval window adds a lot of depth to this card.

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 4

Here is a peek at the inside of the card - the greetings are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set (which is part of another great bundle!)

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 5

I used the multipurpose liquid glue to attach the branch and mini glue dots to attach the flowers.

Colorful Seasons Seasonal Layers Bundle - 6

Here is a quick peek inside the Berry Burst card - I used the Better Together stamp set for the inside of this card.

I hope you give this bundle a try - it is a lot of fun!!

Creative Inking Blog Hop: What Goes Around

Blog Hop Title

Our hop theme this month is circles so I chose the beautiful dies from the Eastern Palace Suite!

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up Circles - 1

A simple card with lots of elegance in Vanilla and Dapper Denim.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up - 1

I started with an 11" x 4 1/2" piece of Vanilla and cut the detailed circle from the Eastern Medallion Thinlit dies and then laid a circle from the Layering Circle dies in the center.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up - 5

After cutting that out, I laid a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Vanilla behind the front piece and using the top piece as a guide to center one of the smaller detailed circle dies from the Eastern Medallion Thinlits.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up - 6

Then I removed the top piece to place the next die.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up - 4

I love the laser cut look of these dies and how the Eastern Beauty stamp set was designed to coordinate with this set.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up - 3

The inside piece is attached with Dimensionals to give the card depth.

Eastern Palace Suite Stampin Up Circles - 2

This fabulous bundle is available NOW from your Stampin' Up! demonstrator!!  You will be amazed with all of the things you can create!
