Today is the final day to purchase this month's class to go featuring the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set, so I thought I would highlight one of the cards. This is my favorite out of the four cards, and it just might have to do with the main color of the card - Berry Burst! I go back and forth between favorite new In Colors, but this one is currently at the top of my list.
If you are interested in purchasing this class to go, or this month's other offering, the Soft Sayings Card Class, please contact me today. I'll have another class to go ready for you on August 8!
I have a beautiful card to share with you today! I get my inspiration from a lot of places, but this card was copied directly from our demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success. It's a quarterly magazine, and it's packed full of project ideas and business tips. I love when it shows up in my mailbox!
Pretty, right? I love the new In Colors this year, and those little bow embellishments are adorable. And the best part was I didn't have to design it myself!
There are SO many perks to being a demonstrator, and I thought I would share some with you today, because the Starter Kit special this month is amazing! I made a short video to tell you about the Christmas in July promotion, and it includes a sneak peek of the new Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Thinlits from our upcoming Holiday Catalog. Thanks for taking a look!
If purchasing the Starter Kit is something you are interested in, you can contact me for more information, or sign up here. I would love to have you join my team, Rachel's Naptime Stampers!
I have this month's classes to go ready a few days early. There are
two options this month - one is the Soft Sayings Card Kit plus some
extras, and the second features the stamp set Happy Birthday, Gorgeous. I
love them both, and I hope you will too! The deadline to purchase both
classes is July 20. Classes will ship by July 27 this month. Here are
Soft Sayings Card Class: This class includes the Soft Sayings Card
Kit, Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist ink pads, a Blender Pen, and the
supplies and instructions to make four bonus cards. You will also
receive a link to an exclusive video tutorial with tips on putting your
cards together and a lesson in coloring with Blender Pens. The cost is
$57 plus $13 shipping if you are not local.
Happy Birthday, Gorgeous Card Class: This class includes the Happy
Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set and the supplies and instructions to make
the four cards pictured below. The cost is $34 plus $7 shipping. If you
purchase both classes, you will only pay $13 shipping total.
Please email me for links to purchase. The deadline is July 20.
Every month I try to participate in my team's swap. We each send 4 of the same cards that we've designed, and then we get 4 different ones back. It's a fun way to get samples using products we may not have purchased ourselves, and I always enjoy a little fun mail!
When I started working on this month's swap, I pulled out the Daisy Delight Bundle. It's been on backorder since the new catalog period started, but it's back in stock! I was not truly in love with this bundle until I saw it used for gerbera daisies, and then I knew I had to have it. So that's the direction I went with for my cards. I started with Flirty Flamingo, and then kept going with even more fun colors!
Which one is your favorite? The Daisy Punch is a great one to add to your collection - make sure to add it to your shopping list!
Today I am highlighting one of the cards from this month's class to go featuring the stamp set Colorful Seasons. Did you know that I offer at least one class to go every month? Watch for a new class on the 8th of every month, and have your class shipped to you by the last day of the month. Here's a spoiler: next month's class to go will feature the stamp set Happy Birthday, Gorgeous!
It's nowhere close to fall, but I love the delicate leaf in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, and I had to use it on a card!
Two Designer Series Papers are featured on this card as well - you can probably tell that one is the Wood Textures DSP Stack, but do you know where the other one comes from? If you guessed the Delightful Daisy DSP, you are right!
I love how this card turned out, and I know that little leaf will be making more appearances in my cards once fall gets here!
My oldest recently turned 5, and she'll be starting kindergarten this fall. I am definitely not ready for that yet! Along with school comes invitations to birthday parties. She's not even in school yet, and we are invited to one tomorrow evening. Thank goodness Stampin' Up! has the perfect suite of products for kids' birthdays - the Birthday Memories Suite.
I used a few of the products from this suite to create a cute gift bag and a matching card.
I love this piece of the Designer Series Paper, and I used both pieces from the package to create the gift bag. I am planning to do a tutorial video next week, so stay tuned for that!
I used a second tag on my matching card, and added in some more of the DSP. Love those polka dots!
This suite of products is one of my favorites in the catalog. I hope you like it too!
Stamps: Birthday Delivery Ink: Sweet Sugarplum Paper: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Birthday Memories DSP Accessories & Tools: Layering Circles Framelits, Big Shot, Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon, 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows, Gift Bag Punch Board
Am I the only one who procrastinates on making cards that I need to make? Friday afternoon hit, and I knew a Father's Day card had to be made for my husband before he got home from work for the weekend.
Making a masculine card is hard for me, because I like to add a lot of "girly" touches to my cards, like bows and sparkly embellishments. Sometimes I just can't figure out what to add to complete a masculine card! But I think this one turned out ok. What do you think?
Washi tape is a good go-to embellishment for a masculine card, and my personal opinion is that ribbon or thread is ok, as long as it isn't tied in a bow. Do you have any tips for masculine cards? I would love to hear them! Please share them with us in the comments.
