Welcome, Stampers

It has been a long two years of designing and testing the new Stampin’ Up! stamp placement tool. Why? You ask, do we need another stamp placement tool?

Stampin’ Up! has taken the stamp positioning tool to a whole new level!  I have had a MISTI tool for many years and honestly thought nothing could improve it.  Boy, was I wrong!!

Tips and Tricks for Embossing Paste and Coloring Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper

Happy Tuesday, Stampers!!

I want to thank my friend, Gail Etchie for this great card design. I changed the colors and added the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, but for the most part, this is an exact CASE of her card. Thanks so much Gail for letting me share your wonderful idea.

I also followed the instructions from Connie Stewart on using alcohol in my Aqua Painter and Sweet Sugarplum ink refill to color the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

SU colors used on this card

I just love how you are able to change the color of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with just a Sweet Sugarplum ink refill, an Aqua Painter, and rubbing alcohol. Finally, a way to have Glimmer Paper in any color you choose.  Awesome!!

The Daisy Delight has to be one of my favorite stamp sets from the new Stampin’ Up! catalog!!  It also has the added benefit of being bundled with the Daisy Punch.  How fabulous is that?! Purchase the bundle and save 10%!

Enjoy Your Special Day!

Happy Thursday, Stampers

Welcome to today’s Enjoy Your Special Day! card.

The use of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate helps create a sophisticated and elegant card. I purchased this last year and never looked at it again. Now, all that I can say is WOW!  I will definitely be using this again!

The added elements of the Gold Foil and Very Vanilla circles and Gold Metallic Thread help to make the dragonfly die cut pop. Of course, the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush adds that nice bit of sparkle!!

Check out the inside of my card.  Don’t you just love how cutting out a portion of the dragonfly adds interest to a usually ho-hum interior?

Off-Set Technique showcasing Flourishing Phrases stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Happy Thursday, Stampers!!

***Don’t miss out on my June 2017 gift with purchase. Details are below.

I saw this Off-Set Technique on the Stamp TV blog and decided to give it a try with Stampin’ Up! products.  I think the look is so sharp and classy!

Adhering the die cut was made even easier with the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  They can be found on page 203 in our 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

Do you need a catalog?  Please contact me at [email protected] and I will be sure to get one to you.

To create interest on the inside of the card, I stamped the coordinating Flourish stamp in the new 2017-2019 In-color, Tranquil Tide.

I just put off and put off purchasing this stamp set. I am so glad I finally did, as it was just perfect for this fun Off-Set Technique.

It just never ceases to amaze me how the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush brings such sparkle and shine to your cards.  I am honestly addicted to it!
