Announcements! and stamping with Celebrate with Flowers

At the beginning of this video, I share a a few new things I'm offering as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Below is the text (with a few edits) that I read. ============================================================== I have recently decided that I need to be doing more to thank my customers for purchasing Stampin’ Up! products from me, and I also want to create a stamping community. So I’ll be adding these 2, well, 3 things soon: First, for the length of the current annual catalog, I will be making video tutorials for various products in the catalog.  When you purchase specific products from me, I’ll email you a link to a private YouTube video where I’ll share what I’ve learned from using the product myself.  If you look back to my videos about the Hydrangea Hill DSP and suite, and also the Sand and Sea suite—that’s the kind of video I’m thinking of making, with lots of samples, and I’ll create with the product in the video, too, much like I do in my weekly public videos. 

OSW 6"X6" Using Hand-Penned DSP and Through It Together Stamp Set

These 3 cards were created from one 6"X6" piece of Hand-Penned DSP (*pages 104-105 and 131) and 3 pieces of coordinating cardstock.  Switching out the colors of cardstock changes the look of the DSP.  Using two-sided DSP where the 2 sides coordinate add to your options.  Here the floral print was one side and the Highland Heather pattern was the other side. I cut my DSP with this template.  My cardstock piece are 1/4" larger, so I used: 2@1-3/4" X 3-1/4" 4@2-1/2" X 3-1/4" For variation, on the last card, I added a Daffodil Delight layer that was longer so it is 2-3/4" X 4-3/4". I chose a stamp from the Through It Together stamp set (*page 72) for my cards today. *All page numbers are from the 2021-2022 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.

SYOPP: Stamp Your Own Patterned Paper-Facebook Live May 10, 2021

 This is the card I made during my Facebook live on May 10, 2021.  This video is available on YouTube as well.  I used the stamp sets Quiet Meadow, Elegantly Said and Daisy Lane. I used 3 In Colors, Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya and Misty Moonlight.  The dots were stamped in Gray Granite. The Friend card was created during my video, and the rest were completed with the patterned paper I stamped during the video. I keep anniversary cards a little more simple and not too feminine.  Happy Anniversary is in the Elegantly Said stamp set. This is #SimpleStamping as defined by Stampin' Up!  I used only stamps, ink and paper on this card. This Faux Linen Ribbon (part of the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Pack) is so soft and fits in with the pale colors beautifully. Can you see the Wink of Stella on the Pale Papaya die cut?  Lots of die cuts on this card and just a narrow piece of 'patterned paper'.  I embossed the Soft Succulent die cut with Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.

Top Flap Card

I made up a fun fold based on a card I saw.  The turned the center panel into a flap.  From one 8-1/2" X 11" sheet of card stock you can make 2 of these cards. For this card, I used Highland Heather card stock:  4-1/4" X 5-1/2" Highland Heather card stock:  2-1/8" X 11", scored at 5-1/2" 2 Basic White card stock:  2" X 5-1/4" 2 Patterned Paper:  1" X 5-1/4" To create these pieces for 2 cards from one 8-1/2" X 11".  (I obviously used 2 different color schemes here, and I have 2 card bases left one Highland Heather and one Bumblebee.) Cut 8-1/2" X 11"  card stock in half at 4-1/4", giving you 2 pieces of card stock that are 4-1/4" X 11".   Cut one of these in half at 5-1/2", giving you 2 pieces of card stock that are 4-1/4" X 5-1/2".  These are your 2 card bases. We often call this a card front. TIP:   For more places to write on the card, use a full folding card base, instead of a ca
