HAPPY FRIDAY!!

Here is another card that I made and swapped at Convention this year.  I must say...it was a hit!  I really like this card and it is super easy to make.  You can stamp any sentiment that you want for the occasion.

Plus, this is one of the bundle sets that you can get a discount on!  When you bundle the Stamp Set and the punch together you can save 15%!!  How cool is that?  I have listed all the codes though just in case.

I made this card today!  I actually copied it right from the catalog, page 114 but I did change the colors.  Have you ever done that before?  It is super fun and sometimes I start and then it gets changed as I go.  It is a good thing to try when having a creativity block. 

What are your thoughts on the picture?  Do you like it with the product behind it or not?  Does it take away from the card or does it add character to the picture?  I really do want to know your thoughts and feedback.  Remember, you can click on the picture or the title to be directed to my website to see a bigger picture.

This will be one of the cards that we will be doing in the WOW August class!  I may add a Friday night so let me know if you would like that.

Don't forget about the awesome Paper Pumpkin deal going on now too!!  Only $10 a month for the first 2 months!!  That is over a 50% savings!!  You can cancel anytime too.  Just go to www.mypaperpumpkin.com and enter PUMPKINDEAL in the promo code.  Be sure to enter Sandra Currie from Macomb as your Demonstrator too!!  I have 2 kits that I want to give away to people that select me as their Demonstrator.  Sign up today for your chance to win one!

Another Wildflower Meadow Card using New Colors
This is one of my swaps for Convention!  Simple but really does POP.  Remember, that you can click on the title or the picture to see a bigger picture and all the product details.

I used the stamp set Wildflower Meadow along with the matching embossing folder.  The folder embosses the whole stamped image except the bird.  I used 2 new In-Colors, Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe. 

I also using the new stamp set called Really Good Greetings for the sentiment.  I love all the greetings in this set so it is a must have!  I stamped my greeting on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Decorative Label Punch.  Then I punched another Decorative Label out using Crisp Cantaloupe and cut it in half and adhered it to each side.  

I thought that it needed something else so that is why I added the butterflies.  I stamped them with the matching stamp pad using the stamp set called Papillion Potpourri and then punched them out using the Bitty Butterfly punch. 

And that is it!  Simple!  I made another one using different colors and I will share that one soon!

Wildflower Meadow colored with markers
Hello Stampers!

It has been way too long since I shared something with you!  After some much needed family time and getting through the end of the school year, I have been able to stamp the last few days!

I LOVE the new catalog and this stamp called Wildflower Meadow is one that I have been using this week in a few different ways.  This is my favorite card that I made but I will show you more next week.

Remember, you can click on the picture to make it bigger.

This card does take some time but worth it.  I colored on the stamp using markers.  I used Marina Mist, Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight, Summer Starfruit, Blushing Bride, Primrose Petals, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz.  Of course you can use whatever colors you would like.  I just colored with the lighter color first and then shaded with the darker color. 

I also played with the new Simply Pressed Clay!!  It was so fun!  I will make a video soon to show you how that works.  The yellow flower is made from the new clay and molds.  I colored it to make it yellow using Summer Starfruit and Daffodil Delight markers.

Of course I had to add bling with Rhinestones!!

I HAVE a CROP coming UP!!  WHOOT!!  September 27th - 29th  Only $135 until August 1st.  Includes meals, goodies, tool use, more goodies and surprises!!  It is at the Hyatt Place Hotel in Utica Michigan.  Hotel room is extra but not required that you sleep there if you are local.  If you do stay at the hotel though you never have to get out of your jammies!!

Honeycomb Thank You Card

Honeycomb Thank You Card
This is the card that I made for every one of my moms on my leadership team.  I could not have made it through this year without them!  We had a great first year of MOPS (Mother's of Preschoolers) and we are excited about what God will be doing through our group for next year.

I used Whisper White cardstock and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  There is not a punch for this...yet, hint hint!  Ok, well the punch that is coming is bigger then the embossing folder but it will match and you can do so many things with it.  So, I just ran a few extra sheets of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot and hand cut out the hexagons.  I then sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Pad.  I put them on with Stampin' Dimensionals for a pop.

Good news!  Nothing on this card is retiring.  Including the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper!!  To see all the products used, click on the title and it will take you to my website where all the products are listed. 

Mark your calenders!  June 1st I will be at The Arbors of St. Clair from 10-5 for my new catalog Open House.  See the new catalog and new products.  All retired products are greatly discounted so come and check out a great sale!  And make a free card while you are there!  The Arbors address is 3201 Military Street, Port Huron MI 48060.

Biggby Gift Card Holders
Here is the first of a few things that I am going to show you from a party that put together for my moms group at church. 

First, I made 10 gift card holders for all the child care workers thank you gifts.  We got them Biggby gift cards and I used the stamp set called "Patterned Occasions" from Sale-a-bration. It is the "whole latte love" stamp with the coffee mug.  You can not get that stamp set anymore but there is a super cute stamp set in the new catalog called "Perfect Blend" that would work perfect too!  I used Dazzling Details on the mug to give it some bling.  

For the holder part, I used the Scallop Envelope Bigz die for the Big Shot.  But this die is retiring and you still have until June 3rd to get it or while supplies last.  I made the opening on the side flap which I think made it super cute and different. 

I also used one new color!!  Can you find it?

This past Wednesday morning, I put on an awesome end of the year party for my moms group at church.  I brought in Dorsey Culinary School to cook us omelets and crapes.  They were yummy!  They also brought in muffins, potatoes, sausage, coffee and juice.  They totally did an awesome job and spoiled all the moms in the group!  It was a great morning!  If you ever need an event catered, I recommend them!   

I made all the decorations, thank you cards and gift card holders that were passed out.  That is why you have not heard from me lately.  I was a busy bee!   So over this coming week, I will share with you everything that I made for the party. 

It was such a gorgeous day today that my family went to the carnival that is in our church parking lot after going to our church spaghetti dinner.  It was a busy day but we had a blast!  Here are my oldest 3 kiddos on the motorcycles at the carnival!   Dominic is just not quite big enough yet.

April's My Paper Pumpkin

This is April’s My Paper Pumpkin.  It is so much fun to get my orange box in the mail!  The stamp set is called “Seriously” which is funny because I never realized how much I do say that word until my oldest son started saying it a lot.  The things they pick up! 

It is a cute stamp set.  I made one card just like the instructions and after that I did my own thing.  But I did use everything that was in the box!  It was great because I sat down in front of the TV with my scissors, adhesive and my box and did not have to keep getting up because I forgot something.  It was all there! 

Remember, with your very first kit, you get a FREE clear block! 

I made a video a few months ago explaining it all.  You can watch it HERE.

Don’t want to miss another month?  Signing up just got a lot easier.

Let me know any questions that you may have.  The one important thing to know is that you are billed around the 15th of every month.

Need some guy card inspiration?  Here is a great one!  Perfect colors for any man and any occasion.  This card uses the "Just Thinking" Single Stamp.  (pg 21 Spring Mini Catalog) I used the Window Frames Framelits with my Big Shot and I did just simply cut the circle out.  I stamped using markers on Very Vanilla but you can also add a cool touch and stamp on the Canvas Creations that is in the spring mini catalog.  (pg 21)  Pop that up on a dimensional. 

These flags seem to be really "in" right now cause I am seeing them everywhere and using them myself on so many cards.  Have you tried it yet?

I wrapped those with Linen Thread and added my Silver Designer Button at the top.  My Cherry Cobbler flag is embossed with the Houndstooth Folder.

Elements of Style Flower Card

This is a card that I made using blender pens.  This is a technique that is easy if you know one simple tip.  Take your stamp pad and before you open it, smush (yes that is a word…maybe) the pad side into the top so that you get some ink onto the top.  Then open your ink pad and dip your blender into the ink on the top side and apply to your paper.  It is darker when you first apply it but it will fade as your ink wears off your pen.  Re-ink your pen when needed.   This is a great technique for coloring flowers!!   I hope that this card makes you Think Spring!

I have been asked for the Hostess Code so here it is again for you:

When you are ready to shop, just go to www.stampinsandra.net, click SHOP ONLINE and that will take you to my Stampin Up! website.  Click shop now in the upper right hand corner.  You will need to create an account or sign in.  And when asked just enter TUJ7D9CG into the hostess code.  And yes! clearance items do qualify for FREE Sale-a-Bration products and my Sizzix giveaway!  Remember that I am giving away a Sizzix this month if I have $5,000 in sales!  :)  I will take your order by phone or email too if that is easier!

This just in....a new stamp option, Photopolymer

This just in....a new stamp option, Photopolymer

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.

What makes them so great?

  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity?
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.

Item Description Price

Designer Typeset Photopolymer Stamp Set

Recommend clear blocks A, B, G, F, and I. Purchase separately.

Includes 57 pieces. (Don't faint! This is a good overwhelming feeling.)

$13.95


The Fine Print

  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013.
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.

Q&A

Q: How long will each stamp set that's released be available for purchase?
A: Since this product line is being offered on a trial basis and is not currently included in our catalog, we won't have a standard amount of time that each set is offered. We'll let you know when each set is no longer available as well as when new ones become available.
Q: What should I tell my customers about this line and its future plans?
A: Let them know that we're trying it out and if it's popular we'll keep the photopolymer sets coming! So if they want to see more, tell them to buy! And if they like a set they see, tell them to buy it now since there are no guarantees that it will be available tomorrow.

For this card I used my Big Shot and embossed Very Vanilla with the Chevron Embossing Folder (which is very "in" right now!) and cut the shapes using the Hearts a Flutter Dies.  I used More Amore Designer Series Paper so there is no stamping there.  But I used the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes for the "Friend to Friend" sentiment which is stamped in Primrose Petals on Very Vanilla.  I then punched that out with the Word Window punch and punched out Primrose Petals with the Modern Label punch.  The Pool Party is the 3/4" circle punch and the Primrose Petals heart is the small heart punch.  It all comes together with Pool Party Bakers Twine.  The Rhinestone Basic Jewels at some bling!!  I love this card because you can easily change the sentiment which makes it great for any occasion and can even be used for a guy!!

Oh Whale!
I made this card with a great group of women at a scrapbook retreat this past weekend and it was a BIG hit!  I used the Oh, Whale stamp set with the matching Happy Whale Clearlits Die.  To make the waves, I just inked up my stamp and then stamped it three times before reinking.

I took a card from a previous post and made it with another tree stamp because I was asked if we could make this card this Saturday at my Santa's workshop.  Of course I said yes, but I do not have the stamp set because it was a swap from Regionals.  So I took a tree that I have from the stamp set called Christmas Lodge and made it with that tree.  This picture, I must admit, is not the greatest because it just picks up way to much of the glitter.  I love glitter and I used it on this card!!  Of course, I made a video on exactly how I did it!

Christmas Stockings Gift Holder
How many stockings are in this picture?  24!  22 of them are my swaps for this weekend.  I am going to Regionals in Lansing and a big part of the FUN is swapping!!  I used my Big Shot and the die called Holiday Stocking and the embossing folder called Fancy Fan.  

Here is the difference in the 3 different designs that I made:

The right hand stocking is the basic design using Whisper White Card Stock and Gumball Green.
The left hand stocking I "stepped it up" using Very Vanilla Card Stock, Gumball Green and Champagne Glimmer Paper.  On both of these I used a big button from the Naturals Designer Buttons pack with Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon tied in bow attached with a glue dot.  On the "stepped up" card I used the new 1 1/4 scallop circle punch.

The bottom stockings are my swaps and on those I used Whisper White Card Stock and Gumball Green.  I punched Red Glimmer paper with the scallop circle punch.  Then I used the stamp set called Morning Post Alphabet using Real Red ink and stamped everyone's intials and punched them out using the 1 1/4 punch. 

These of course were fun to make or I would not have made so many!!  These make great teachers gifts, secret santa gifts or classroom gifts.

I made this card from the sample that was in our Demostrator Stampin Success magazine.  It said to use Whisper White Craft Ink Refill with Rubbing Alcohol to make the white splattered look.  I tried and to be honest, I really could not figure it out.  But I was not about to give up, so what I did was just put a little on a scrap piece of paper.  Then I just dipped my finger in it to get just a little on my finger.  Then I just very gently dabbed my finger on the page where I wanted it.  Re-dipping my finger when I needed more.  Let it dry for awhile or take your heat tool to it so that you do not smudge it.  It was super simple and added a fun design to the background that I made using Music Notes Stampin' Around Wheel.

The great thing about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is that we get a magazine once a month called "Stampin Success". It is loaded with some really awesome project ideas! This card is one of the cards in the August 2012 magazine. It was super easy to make. All you need is one stamp set, one punch, some brads, simply scored, and some ribbon!!

I actually made this scrapbook layout before I made the card on the previous post. I loved the scrapbook page so much that I made a card to match. This scrapbook layout is much easier to make than it looks. I LOVE my Sizzix Big Shot Machine!!

I used three of the five new In-Color colors to make this card. I also made a 2-page scrapbook layout page using the same basic layout. This stamp set can do so much. Do not throw away the blank circles that come in this set either! You can use those to make polka dots!
