This Little Piggy Makes Me Happy

This Little Piggy by Stampin' Up!

 

Don’t judge me but I love pigs. In fact one of the very first gifts my husband gave me was a stuffed pig. His name is Norman and he sits on my desk.

So … can you guess which stamp set was near the top of my new catalogue wish list? Yep. This Little Piggy. I love these little guys. This is a set of 9 that includes four oh so adorable pigs as well as some cheerful fonted (is that even a word?) greetings for both the inside and outside of your cards.

Looking for a stamp set that isn’t just like the ones you already own … This Little Piggy is it.

This Little Piggy Watercolor Card

 

I stamped the pig with ink from the Basic Gray Archival Pad and then coloured the body with Powder Pink ink and a Blender Pen. The rest of the card was coloured with Basic Gray, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron markers from the Many Marvelous Markers set.

The card is Early Espresso with a middle layer of Whisper White and a top layer of Powder Pink from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Stack.  The stack includes 40 sheets in all five of the new In Colors and I’ve used it a lot.

Next, I added a 1" wide strip of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack and a 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" square of Shimmery White cardstock that was stamped with the piggy – both also layered onto Early Espresso cardstock.

If Life Gives You Lemons …

Lemon Zest by Stampin' Up!

 

You won’t mind life’s lemons if they’re the Stampin’ Up! variety.

This card was made with the Lemon Zest Bundle which pairs the stamp set with Lemon Builder Punch. The colours are Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black.

The top layer of the card was embossed with the new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder is really versatile and creates a background that can be used often.

I punched the lemons twice in each of Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz adding the greeting to one of the lemons.  After putting all of the pieces together I added two Rhinestone Basic Jewels and two loops of Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon. This ribbon has just a touch of shimmer that adds elegance to any card.

Lemon Zest Stamp Set and Lemon Builder Punch

 

Closed the card measures 5-1/2" tall by 3-3/4" wide. The circle with the attached lemons is adhered to the card so that is measures 4-1/4" wide and fits a medium envelope.

Holiday 2017 Sneak Peek: Snowflake Sentiments

Stampin Up Snowflake Sentiments

 

Snow and snowflakes are a big part of life here abut I never look forward to the winter weather. A fresh dusting at Christmas is beautiful but the rest – shovelling, bad roads, slippery sidewalks, the cold. Ugh!

But strangely enough I love snowflakes for my card making. And Stampin’ Up! never let’s me down. Let me introduce you to this year’s snowflake stamp set – Snowflake Sentiments (wood 144178, clear 144820).

 

Snowflakes, greetings and more plus the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits Dies (144678) add even more options with borders and swirls. Buy them together as the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle (wood 146052, clear 146053) and save 10%.

 

Stampin Up Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits

 

The colours used on this card are Bermuda Bay, Island Indigo and Silver including Silver Foil Sheets (132178) for the cut snowflake border.

I accessorized the card with even more silver – Silver 1/8" Ribbon (132137), Metallic Enamel Shapes (141678) and Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109131).

Holiday 2017 Sneak Peek: Painted Harvest

Painted Harvest Stamp Set by Stampin Up

 

Painted Harvest (144783) is a autumn themed stamp set available September 1st in the new Holiday 2017 catalogue. A set of 13 photopolymer images, included are flowers, two sets of leaves, an acorn and greetings. With this stamp set you can create bold, watercoloured images for quick and easy cards. And like I did here, the images can be layered in complementary colours.

 

Available as the Painted Harvest Bundle (146021) with the new Leaf Punch and also a coordinating 12" x 12" designer series paper pack, Painted Autumn (144613).

Demonstrators were able to pre-order Painted Harvest and it is very popular. Can’t wait to order? Purchase a Starter Kit and include any of the not yet released holiday products as part of the $165 in products your receive for only $135 with shipping and GST included. 

 

 

Stampin Up Leaf Punch

 

 Can you spot the new Leaf Punch (144667)? The punch is a stem with three attached leaves but I cut the leaves into separate pieces for this card.

 

 

Painted Harvest Stamps with Leaf Punch by Stampin' Up!

 

I used painters tape torn long ways down the middle to tape off the bottom of the card and keep it clean. You could also use paper or post it notes for same look. 

The colors used for this card were So Saffron over stamped with Crushed Curry and a Chocolate Chip center. The dots and leaves were also stamped with Chocolate Chip. After stamping all of the images except the greeting, I used a Spritzer (126185) and spritzed just a little bit of water on top to blend the edges.  The Stampin’ Spritzer is a bargain and one of those handy tools that I never put away.

Holiday 2017 Sneak Peek: Christmas Quilt

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt  

 

What is not to love about quilts? Every one is a work of art and sewn with love. In addition to being a thing of beauty they also offer comfort and warmth.

As much as I admire quilters and their finished products, I know the hobby is not for me.  And that’s why I really enjoyed creating this card with the Christmas Quilt stamp set (144793) and Quilt Builder Framelits Dies (144673) – I made my own quilt in very little time and with very little skill.

 

Christmas Quilt and Cable Knit Embossing Folder

 

I added texture to the background as well as the Real Red and Crumb Cake pieces with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (143537).

This Christmas Quilt Bundle (146026) will be featured in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday 2017 catalogue which starts September 1st. Request your copy today.

Oh So Eclectic, You’re Just Lovely

 Oh So Eclectic by Stampin' Up!

Another new catalogue favourite is the Naturally Eclectic Suite which includes the Oh So Eclectic stamp set, Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

The Oh So Eclectic stamp set features two different shapes of flowers as well as leaves and four greetings. The Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies work with the flowers and leaves and add gems to the mix. The thinlits also feature three shapes that emboss rather than cut for a unique image.

Want to create eclectic and diverse cards and projects of your own? Buy the bundle and don’t forget to add the eclectic paper, cardstock and overlays for even more creative options.

 Eclectic Layers Thinlits

 

Gold! I love the richness it brings to this card – the flower, behind the cutout and the sequins. I used a length of the new Gold Mini Sequin Trim with the Fresh Fig Finely Woven Ribbon as well as individual sequins glued onto the card.

 

 

Naturally Eclectic Suite

 

 I trimmed the top piece of Fresh Fig cardstock to 5-1/4" x 3-1/2" so the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper is more visible.

Love Today Planner Kit – A Must Have

Love Today Planner Kit

 

I love all kinds of paper. I bet you do, too. Most paper crafters can’t get enough of different papers and that includes planners and journals.

So I was really excited to see the new Love Today Planner Kit in the catalogue and it was one of the first products I ordered.

I’ve been using it for a few days now and have received so many compliments. I always look for planners that include a calendar and room for both to do lists and notes. And this planner has all that and more. And I love that I can personalize it and make it mine with the additional accessories including stickers, sticky notes and photo pages. 

Because it is binder style you can start at any time during the year and order a refill pack once the year ends.

Fresh, New and Contemporary … In Color Collection 2017 – 2019

In Color Collections 2017-2019

 

With each annual catalogue, Stampin’ Up! introduces a new In Color Collection featuring five new colors. And this years colors may be the best ever. 

My favorite color is lime green and I have been hoping for ink and card stock for a long time. And here it is – Lemon Lime Twist. I feel as if this color was introduced just for me. It makes me so happy.

The other four colors are also strong additions to the current line up of colors. These colours work well teamed together and also in combination with the current colors.
