Too Good To Be Forgotten Thursday




I am teaming together with members of my Jean's Paper Jewels Team to bring you some special creations today. We're calling it Too Good To Be Forgotten Thursday. I challenged them to use a current stamp set that is not brand new. I'm hoping that we can do this at least once a month. I know you will enjoy seeing these creations, and be inspired to do the same yourself.

I used the lovely High Tide Stamp Set. It's been sitting on my shelf needing some love for quite a while. I made four cards of the same design so that I could use all four of the fabulous sentiments that come with the set. 

I sponged the sky with Bermuda Bay first, then added some little hints of color with Lemon-Lime Twist, and Calypso Coral with a Sponge Dauber. This was using Thick Whisper White Card Stock.  I stamped the lighthouse on a separate piece of Whisper White in Smokey Slate first, then added the second stamp inked with Real Red. I fussy cut the image then attached it to the stamped layer. I used my Stamparatus to get a partial stamping of the birds instead of the six that are on the stamp. I also used it to stamp the sentiments so that they would be straight. 




I stamped the small patch of sand, and the sandpiper birds on the inside of each card. I didn't want to miss out on using that great image.






Next I have a beautiful card designed by Danni Bindel. She used the ever popular Painted Harvest Stamp Set. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! She used Powder Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Fresh Fig, Pear Pizzazz, and Garden Green. 
You can see all the details on Danni's Blog HERE.





I hope you have enjoyed our Too Good To Be Forgotten creations! We'll be back with more real soon.


I am giving away FREE gifts this month to celebrate the new catalog. Any online order placed between now and June 30th will qualify for one of my handmade cards. Those of you that place an online order of $50 or more will receive a pack of our embellishments. (Styles vary).

I know you will be enjoying all the beautiful new coordinating products from Stampin' UP! as much as I do. Find some time soon to start creating. Enjoy your day!

Graceful Glass Meets Beautiful Layers





Hello, and happy Hump Day! I used products from the Graceful Glass Suite again to make this pretty card. I colored the back of the piece of Graceful Glass Vellum with the Lovely Lipstick, and Pineapple Punch Stampin' Write Markers. I attached it to the Lovely Lipstick card base using a glue stick. That way it doesn't show that much through the vellum. The delicate half circle die from the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies adds so much pizzazz to the card.

Have you noticed that we have an envelope liner die? There is one in the Beautiful Layers Thinlets Set. I cut one out from a piece of Pineapple Punch from the 2018-2020 In Color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. Such a nice touch.

Darling Label Thanks Card





Hello, and welcome! I copied this card from my most recent Stampin' Success Magazine. We demos get this wonderful publication quarterly. It's full of good ideas, and lots of inspiration. It is one of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

This card starts with one of our Very Vanilla Note Cards. It was really quick, and easy to make. The first layer is a 3-1/3" x 4-3/4" piece of Very Vanilla that was embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. Next is a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine wrapped around the embossed layer. A piece of Vellum is next, and just punched with the 2" Circle Punch. I stamped the Darling Label sentiment twice. Once on Petal Pink using Petal Pink Ink and next on Lemon Lime Twist using Night of Navy Ink. I cut out the word thanks with a scissors then attached it to the  Petal Pink Label. It's popped up on Dimensionals on top of our Mini Silver Sequins. Very pretty, and pretty easy.

Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass Suite Card




Hello, and welcome! I used a piece of the pretty Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum for this pretty card. The sentiment is from the matching stamp set, Painted Glass. I cut it out with one of the small ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits set. It's colored with our amazing Stampin' Blends. This card looks beautiful in person.

The Graceful Glass Vellum sheets can be colored in a variety of way. You can use our Blends Alcohol Marker, Stampin' Write Watercolor Marker, Watercolor Pencils, Sponges, Sponge Daubers, or you can leave them as is. I lined mine with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock to really make the image pop. It looks terrific on the Blueberry Bushel card base.
