New Stampin' Up! Product

Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird

Today we'll be creating with the Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird! This beautiful 2-step stamp set is really quite easy to stamp with and....if you are not an avid coloring stamper, the solid images are a quick solution to add color to your outlined stamped images.

Touch of ink - hummingbird

The solid images roughly match the outlined ones and are not intended to be a precise match for coloring---so it's even easier to do quick stamping because there's no tedious matching of the two stamps. The effect is a more casual design rather than a formal one.

You can earn this beauty free..that's right, during Sale-a-bration you can earn this set when you purchase $100 in Stampin'Up! products...that is as long as supplies last. Since this set is quite coveted I would recommend obtaining it sooner rather than later.

Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2

Today we're creating again with Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2! I loved the beauty and ease of the card we created on Tuesday so I carried over the design for today's card.

Raspberry card

We used the  Holiday Rhinestones again for this card but this time we used he green (instead of blue on Tuesday's card) One of the benefits of the Holiday set of rhinestones is that there are a multitude of colors so you can always find a coordinating color.

With a slight switch in colors, this card can also be created with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink for the berry and have yet another great fun and easy card.

Stop back next week and I"ll be picking another SAB free item to create another fun project!

How to Make a Fuzzy Card

Today I'll show you How to Make a Fuzzy Card! If you enjoy texture in your cards--this is the card for you! Take a look...

Felt card

You can almost see the "fuzziness," right?  That's the Festive Felt from the new August-December Mini Catalog (hereafter called the Holiday mini). There are four sheets in a pack (red, green, white, expresso) and the sheets are 6 X 12 which gives you tons of material to play with.

These felt sheets cut beautifully with the open dies on the new Die Cut & Emboss Machine (coming September 1st --they cut as well on the old machines). I used the Freezin' Friends for this card---even those tiny white stars were die cut..isn't that amazing?

And then the brilliant red "Merry" was cut from that luscious Red Velvet paper. It also cuts extremely well with the dies on the new machine (it works on the old cutting machine too)!

I'll give you the simple steps to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.

If you place an online order using this month's Host Code (VX3RSCVK) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (selected by me) for each $50 in product that you purchase. Also, the month of August is Bonus Coupon cash in month! Those coupons you earned in July can be spent between August 4 and 31st.

Directions:

1. Cut 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 Night of Navy cardstock, score long side at 4 1/4 (card base).

2. Cut 2 1/2 X 5 1/2 white felt (Festive Felt) and cut diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner on the other side with the landscape die (Freezin' Friends dies).

Snowbank3. Lay one layer down with the wide side to the left; turn the other piece to the other side so the wide end is on the  righthand side.

Corss

Adhere these two pieces in this position on the lower front of the card base with liquid glue.

4. Cut 2 large and 3 small trees (Freezin' Friends dies) from the green felt; adhere these over the snow banks with liquid glue. Adhere 3 large red resin dots  to each tree (All the Trimmings elements)--these are self adhesive.

5. Cut 9 tiny stars from the white felt; adhere these to the "sky" with tiny dots of liquid glue.

6. Cut Merry (Word Wishes dies) from Red Velvet paper and adhere this to the snowbank with liquid glue.

Your card is ready for sending (and touching--it's a real touchable card)!

A Pop Up Rainbow of Colors

Today we're creating a really fun card with a Pop Up Rainbow of Colors. It's a very simple design but the Wow factor is that awesome pop up of all the elements on the card front!

Happy day w balloons

Here's a side view so you can really see how terrific that looks all popped up:

Happy day w balloons side view

The rainbow of colors on both the words and the balloons is from the new Rainbow Glimmer paper...the colors range from deep red to deep purple...it's a graduation of colors each flowing into the next one that gives this fantastic rainbow--you can select any combo of colors you want simply by placing your die in the color zone that you want to capture.

The Pup Up is accomplished with the new Foam Adhesive Sheets...it's like having a sheet that is one big dimensional. Working with it is just the same as working with the regular dimensionals except that you want to adhere the cardstock to the sheet before putting it through the die cut machine--this way you cut the adhesive foam at the same time you are cutting the cardstock (in this case we're using glimmer paper).

I'll give you the simple steps to follow below as well as how to create the card. Following the directions you'll find the supply list--use that to order what you'll need to create this card.
