Dies, Stampin Up

An Amazing “Hold On To Hope” Card

———————————————————

I have to say this is my favorite Stampin’ Up!® card created thus far. I wanted to really show off the dies from the Hold On To Hope Bundle. By now you probably all realize that this is a MELANIE’s MUST HAVE product bundle.

I have a Very Vanilla card base here and I ran the front of the card base through the Big Shot using the Blossoming Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. This is a bundle that you can get for FREE with a $100 purchase by March 31st.

Using the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper I cut a open cross from the Hold On To Hope Bundle. This paper is STUNNING! One side of each piece had gold foil and the other side is a whole other pattern without the gold foil.

Using the dies from the set I cut another open cross from Gold Glimmer Paper and inset that cut out piece into the hole from the previous cut. Then I simply cut the simple cross from the bundle to add on top. The “Amazing” Die is part of another FREE /w $100 product from the Sale A Bration Catalog. To see ALL Freebie items simply CLICK HERE! Remember the special ends March 31st.

You are amazing. Thank you for visiting my website. Add your email into the side bar if you wish to be notified when a new project is uploaded. Have an amazing weekend!

MUST SEE!!! Blossoming Basket Bundle ~ Free w/ $100 purchase


Welcome Back! I hope you have enjoyed this week focusing on my favorite SAB FREE STAMPS! This, by far, is my favorite pick from this years FREE Sale A Bration items. This is the Blossoming Basket Bundle which is FREE with a $100 purchase from any of our catalogs. It includes this beautiful basket stampo set along with a basket weave embossing folder. If submitting an order online of $150 or less feel free to use March’s hostess  code FCNV6MBW.

Here is the BUNDLE you can get FREE with a $100 purchase by the end of March 2018

Blossoming Basket Clear-Mount Bundle

and here are some samples made by Stampin’ Up!® showing off this STUNNING set!

 

This first card that I designed is a simple card featuring the basket floral stamp from this FREE bundle. Using it this way is so classy as well as super easy.

To jazz it up a little I have embossed the card base with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Texture Embossing folder and added a few Rhinestone Basic Gems.

Oh where do I begin? This is an all time favorite card of mine. Beginning with the base card simply run the front of the card base through the Big Shot with this bundle’s FREE Basket Weave Embossing Folder.

I used a piece of of designer paper from the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. Here is a picture of the full paper stack… This paper has so many possibilities and there is also a Daisy Stamp Set/Punch Bundle.

From a piece of Whisper White THICK cardstock, stamp your basket image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. These two products are recommended when using Alcohol Markers like our Stampin’ Blends ®

I have used the following Stampin’ Blends® marker sets for this project.

Calypso Coral Combo Pack

Daffodil  Delight Combo Pack

Old Olive Combo Pack

Crumb Cake Combo Pack

After coloring the image it was die cut out using the Layered Oval Framelits. For the scalloped Daffodil Delight frame in the background I simply cut a scalloped oval and cut it down the center from top to bottom.

Peeking out there on the inside is a stamped basket from Calypso Coral Ink. This finished the card nicely.

Stampin’ Up! ® Sale A Bration ~ Don’t Miss Out!


This week I am coming to you with 3 posts each sharing a FREE Sale A Bration (SAB) product. How can you earn FREE products you ask? Simply place an order before March 31st of $50+ or $100+ to have your pick from the freebie choices.

Today’s focus is on “The Beautiful Peacock” stamp set which is FREE with a $50 purchase. I have created two cards using this set. The horizontal card was made for my monthly card buffet class and the stepped up vertical version was created at my March Card Class in my home. interested in classes? Feel free to message me I would love to hear your ideas!

For this simple card all you need along with your stamp set is paper & ink. For the base card I used Pacific Point paper stamped with swirls from The Beautiful Peacock stamp set also using the Pacific Point ink pad. The white panel was really fun to stamp. We started on the left with the sentiment followed by the peacock. Then rather than using the additional peacock stamp for the feathers we created fancy feathers using the flourishes in the set. Everyone in class loved the small floral stamps and wanted to stamp them on all their projects.

For this more detailed design we did two step stamping using both peacock stamps. Then we layered them using the layered circle framelits and the starburst punch. They coordinate so nicely together don’t they? With the extra stamping in the background followed by the extra layer using the Petal Paired embossing folder set this card is full of dimension.

I hope you have enjoyed todays samples. Check back Wednesday for a CAS design for midweek. If I have inspired you and you would like to get your FREE Peacock stamps set feel free to use this months hostess code when checking out. FCNV6MBW, thank you for stopping by and I hope to hear from you soon!
