Heartfelt Blooms "Distinktive" Stamp Set

Hope you are enjoying this year's Sale-A-Bration promotion.  It's our biggest promotion of the year!  Everyone loves it since we get to choose a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure for each $50 order.  What a sweet deal!!!
One of my favorite products in the Sale-A-Bration brochure is Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set.  It is made by a new process Stampin' Up! has developed called "Distinktive".  It lays down the ink at different opacities giving the finished image more depth - just ink the surface lightly for a perfect photographic finish.  It's amazing!!!

To make this card I stamped the floral image in Basic Black Archival Ink on a piece of Shimmery White Card Stock and then colored it with my Aqua Painter using Powder Pink, Crushed Curry and Old Olive Ink Pads.  It's super easy and so pretty!

Watch this video to see how Brandi made her beautiful projects using the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set!  Remember you can get this stamp set FREE with an order of $50 (before shipping and tax) during the Sala-A-Bration event.

Sure Do Love You "Always" Card


Can you tell I am having too much fun making pretty projects using the Sure Do Love You Bundle in the Occasions Catalog?  Oh, yes!

How about the striped heart image stamped inside of the gold embossed heart?  It is from the Heart Happiness Stamp Set which comes with 15 heart stamps.  You can never have enough of those, right?  I just love the way it stamps giving you a soft look.  I stamped the image on a piece of Whisper White card stock and ran it through my Big Shot and then adhered it with some Dimensionals but you could just stamp it inside of your gold embossed flower.  I wanted a dimensional look for my card.  Hope you like my card!!!

Stamps - Sure Do Love You, Heart Happiness
Paper - Powder Pink, Whisper White, Painted with Love Specialty DSP
Ink - Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, VersaMark

For my second page I adhered five 3" x 4" DSP pieces and one piece of Powder Pink Card Stock which is embossed with the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder.

Merry Little Christmas Memories & More Scrapbook

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and captured all the great memories of your family and friends.  I have a great project to share with you today from my December Scrapbook Club.  In fact, we really enjoyed making a Christmas Scrapbook and decided we will do it every year.....and may be every season???!!! 

We made this scrapbook using the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack and other fabulous products in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  Many of them are available until today:-)

The Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack includes 72 total double-sided cards and the patterns are so pretty.  I stamped on one of the 3" x 4" cards and added three ornament stickers from the Pack.  It's super easy and quick!

The big tree is a die-cut from the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits (140278) and embellished with some ornament and sentiment stickers. 

The Carols of Christmas Bundle (Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and the Card Front Builder Thinlits) is one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog.  I am sad to tell you it's retiring....  I hope you already have it:)

My picture of these pages does not give you a clear shot of the reindeer but he is gorgeous!  I used the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to die cut using the Santa's Sleigh Thinlits and adhered it onto an acetate card with silver foil design.  It's so pretty.

I used both sides of the 4" x 6" snowflake acetate card (see next photo for the opposite side) to embellish it with some stamping and die cutting.  The acetate card has beautiful snowflakes all over the card with silver foil design.  

One of my favorite card is the Santa's coat.   It's so simple!  I made a belt with a strip of Basic Black card stock and a square Silver Foil and added a small Basic Black square.  I also added 3 Clear Faceted Gems.  By the way, did you know you can color them with any of the Stampin' Blends Markers? 

The full size Santa is made using the Santa's Suit Bundle (Santa's Suit Stamp Set and Santa Builder Framelits).  I also used the Ivory Stampin' Blends Marker to color his face. 

I left some sections of the page protectors blank so that they can be easily filled with photos or keepsakes.
