Friday Focal ~ Ornamental Envelopes Bundles w/ Video Tutorial

Hi Folks,

I have been scrambling some this week because I not only filmed and edited 1 video but I did a second one too. I am just learning to edit etc.

I have use the Stampin’ Up! Ornamental Envelopes Bundle in this project. Lets look at our focal color palette…

Is this not the most beautiful non traditional Christmas color combo? These are such rich colors.

The focal made me immediately think of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. #150429

Here is a close up of this STUNNING PAPER!!!! I show it up close in the video tutorial as well so make sure to check that out below.

 

I hope you enjoyed the YouTube step by step tutorial. I hope you will consider giving me a thumbs up and subscribe so you do not miss my future videos. 🙂

Stampin’ Up! ~ Quite Curvy Variety Bundle & The ONLINE Extravaganza… One day only!

Hello friends,

I am merging two posts in one here so please forgive me. I wanted to make sure that nobody misses the ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA SALE which is TOMORROW ONLY 11/24/2020!!!

Also please know that there is a ONE DAY SALE TODAY ~ Tuesday November 24, 2020!!! 10% discount on the majority of products in the annual catalog. The best deals are all Blends Alcohol markers, All Bundles, all designer papers, and EVEN the Stamparatus. See excluded items below. CLICK HERE TO SHOP!

 

I am also sharing The Quite Curvy variety bundle which includes the Coordinating Holiday Stamp and papers. The full collection set comes with 2 Stamp Sets, 1 die set, plus a full package of papers. With two stamp sets it covers your holiday cards but the second stamp set is for all occasion cards. This full bundle offer will not be available  for long. So I have created two cards with each stamp set to share this with you.

 

These are two favorite cards from the ones I made. I love the addition of Stitched Stars dies that I already owned. Let look at these two a bit closer…

This holiday card uses two of the papers from this variety bundle. I love mix matching the paper patterns. The sentiment and forest of tress are both in the Curvy Christmas stamp set which is included. I have also added some pretty glistening Snowflake Splendor ribbon which finishes this card perfectly. 

This card here is my favorite of the bunch. I love the curved stars stamp but instead of using them horizontally I decided to stamp it on the diagonal and I love how it turned out. I have incorporates the Stitched Star Die Set and the Gold Foil Paper.

This holiday Christmas tree card has the curvy part vertical and used as the right side of this card to add a little interest. The curvy die was also used for the hill that the tree stands on. My focal was created using the Pine Woods Die Set. I also added some white dotty trim and some rhinestones used for the ornaments. The golf star was from the Stitched Stars die set. I will link these items at the bottom of this blog post for easy reference if your wanting to look a little closer at the items.

Here is a close up of the tree. I love how it turned out.

 

This last card is more of a plain Jane type of card. I wanted to show off the papers which are included in the Curvy Variety Bundle. It gives you lots of option both holiday and everyday cards. Perfect for every season.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Friday Focal, Winter

Friday Focal ~ Snowflake Wishes

Hi Friends,
I am extremely in love with this  Friday Focal color scheme for winter this year. The Snowflake Wishes Bundle by Stampin’ ® Up! show off the purples and just sing out loud when put together.
For these cards I have used the Purple Posy and Highland Heather colors along with Balmy Blue along with a tad bit of Night of Navy. I have also used Foil Sheets and gems to add texture to the cards.
Below I have also added the Quite Curvy Bundle to get that beautiful curved design. I love the way this really gave interest to the card.
On both cards I have used the “Feels Like Frost Specialty Paper” It has patterns on one side (above) and white and silver metallic on the other side. It is just beautiful.
Have questions on how I created a card? Never hesitate to contact me at melaniestamps@yahoo.com , I would be happy to assist you.

Wednesday Sketch ~ Ornate Gardens Suite

Today we are going to focus, not only on a sketch, but also on creating Fall themed cards. The Ornate Garden Suite by Stampin’ Up! was perfect for this theme. I immediately grabbed the Ornate Thanks stamp set because I had not yet used the beautiful bold sentiments from this set so this was perfect for these designs. Lets take a look at the suite.

 

 

I have created two cards using this sketch. Both a horizontal and a vertical design. The papers from the Plaid Tidings 6×6″ pad are really striking with bold colors for both fall and winter and beyond.

 

 

 

For the first card below I have used the Ornate Style Stamp set for the sweet little flower stamp and I have colored them with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The “Thank You” stamp is from the coordinating stamp set titled “Ornate Thanks” in this suite of products. This suite includes BOTH stamp sets along with other coordinating items. CLICK HERE to see the entire suite.

 

Both samples also use the Stitched so Sweetly Die set.  If you have not see the Ornate Layers Dies which are part of the Suite you will want to check those out because they are beautiful and are part of a bundle with the stamp set if your not wanting to get the entire suite. See all the options below.

For the second sample I have added in the Shaded Spruce trees from the In The Pines Stamp set. along with the Stitched Shapes Die set

Weekly Sketch ~ Celebrate Sunflowers & Walk in the Woods By Stampin Up!

Welcome back friends.

This Wednesday I will actually be out of town for a much needed break away from the ins and outs of life. Hubby and I are escaping to the Smoky Mountains and I cannot wait!!! For today’s Wednesday Sketch I have chosen to feature 2 really fun stamp sets from Stampin’ ® Up! “Celebrate Sunflowers” and “Walk in the Woods”. Both sets are perfect for the fall weather and worked wonderful with this weeks sketch. Lets take a look and let me know if you agree.

 

I absolutely love the “Celebrate Sunflowers, Stamp & Die Set and it is available at 10% off. Sunflowers are so perfect for fall. If you have not seen this bundle please CLICK HERE so you do not miss out on the amazing dies that go along with this stamp set. I enjoyed coloring, as always, with my Stampin’ Blends. If you are new to Alcohol coloring I would definitely recommend these markers. They come in both light and dark in each bundle so there is never a question as to which markers will blend well together. Let me know if you have any coloring questions. I am always just a message away and would be glad to assist you in any way.

For my second card I am featuring the “Walk in the Woods” Stamp Set. This stamp set is also a nice set for coloring. I got very carried away following the sketch and have added in a lot of texture with the “Many Medallion Dies“. These dies are also available as part of a bundle along with the “Best Year” stamp set at 10% discount.

 

These cards are a perfect theme for me heading to the mountains today. I hope you all have enjoyed today’s projects. CLICK HERE to join my VIP Facebook Group and share your Stampin’ Up! projects with all of us. We would love to see your current projects.
