8/18 Stampin' Up Just Add Text and a Daisy Punch! #FridayFun


Hello Friends,

I am so excited to be sharing a card from my workshop this week.  I do love sitting with friends doing crafts and spending time together.  This particular group I meet with them every single month, and they totally bless me.  I love how Stampin' Up brings that into my life and theirs.  This card was a big hit at the gathering this month, and I love how simple it is!  I'll post this week's video at the bottom, but first how about some measurements so you can recreate it if you like.

Here are the colors I used.



Measurements: 
Base: Crumb Cake 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Melon Mambo, 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: Crumb Cake, 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 4: Melon Mambo 3" square, die cut with the stitched framelits die
Layer 5 & 6: Two Daisies, punched from the Stampin' Up! daisy punch
Layer 7: Daffodil Delight 3/4" circle, popped up with a dimensional
Layer 8: Glitter enamel Dot

The video this week is very short, only about 5 minutes, but I talk about some really cool design concepts including framing things by making sure that 3 sides are equal, and the rule of thirds.  

Thanks for checking it out!  

Love,
Selene


If you loved this project and need some things, my host code for this month is: FFFR4PQH  
Of course I mail a thank you card for every online order that uses this code!

The clearance rack has been updated and there are some crazy sales going on!  Here are the products I used to create this card.

8/16 Stampin Up' Awesomely Artistic, Woosh Technique, Clearance Rack Updated and more!

Hello Friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have another color with the Inkpad Woosh technique for you!  Did you miss the video?  I'll post all the details down below the main body of this post so you can see how I did this one.

For this one I started with watercolor paper, and added some Marina Mist.  It's been forever since I used that color!  I finished up with Pacific point to get the dark, splattered some wink of stella on it (of course), then I walked away for a day and let my watercolor paper dry!  However, please be sure to check out the video links below to see the Woosh technique in action if you missed the video!

I cut the ovals out of the layer underneath, stamped my dragonfly,  cut him out and layered it back together with some Mini Stampin Dimensionals!  The word "friend" is also stamped in pacific point. Super simple, super pretty!  I could see making a bunch of these.

How about some measurements?

Base: Shimmer white Card stock. 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"

Layer 2: Pacific Point 5 1/4" x 4, large scalloped oval cut out using the layering ovals dies

Layer 3: Watercolor Paper 5 x 3 3/4" large layered oval cut out

Layer 4: Shimmer white cardstock scrap for the dragonfly, cut with paper snips.

Speaking of, I have a whole bunch of news for you!  First, here is my shopping list if you need a thing or two, my current host code is: FFFR4PQH





First, did you know that I have been adding a NEW VIDEO for you every single Friday?  The first three are below and teach totally different things!  I am always looking for new ideas so if you have an idea for my Friday Fun video series, please email me!

The clearance rack has been updated and there's a lot of really cool finds.  Eight, 3x3x3 gift boxes for $3.20, half price gold wink of Stella, Pop of pink Designer paper, very inexpensive enamel shapes and more...  Click here to see what is on the clearance rack.  Use host code: FFFR4PQH and all orders over $25 will get a card in the mail from me!  ;-)

Do you need a holiday catalog?  I have them!  If you are a current customer, let me know and I'll pop one in the mail to you if you live far away or we can plan to catch up and meet if you live close!

Saying goodbye to Stampin' Up's 2015-2017 In Colors, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder.

Hello Friends!

Every single year I get a few customers who miss out on getting re-inkers for their ink pads.  

This email is just a friendly reminder to protect your investment and get the re-inkers for your ink pads while you can! 

 The retirement list is coming! In the past, within MINUTES of the in colors being announced, you could no longer get the re-inkers for your ink pads. Here are the colors that will be gone in just a few weeks:

Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder.

Be sure to check out the clearance rack while you are there too!  Some of the ribbons are on special there too!
