May NC Demos Blog Hop – Saying Goodbye!

Welcome to our monthly NC Demo Blog Hop!  Thanks for checking out all the amazing projects this month.  You may have just come here from Amy Kinler’s blog, wasn’t her project amazing?

Our theme this month was to post a project using a set that will be retiring from the 2019 -2020 Annual Catalog.  I do have several favorites that will be retiring so choosing one set was a challenge.  So I fudged the rules a little bit because I chose 2 stamp sets, Happy Tails, and Nine Lives.  I really love my fur babies and I’m a little bit upset that these sets are retiring, BUT…we have a wonderful new set coming in the new catalog that will fill the void 🙂  BTW, the punches that coordinate with both of these sets are NOT retiring 🙂

(Happy Tails and Nine Lives Instructions)

I’m also trying to use up some of the beautiful DSP that will be retiring as well and I decided to use DSP from See A Silhouette because I wanted bright bold colors.  This DSP is currently reduced to $8.05 so don’t wait to grab a package or two!!  Crushed Curry and Pacific Point were to 2 colors I chose to help accent the DSP.  I used one of the dies from Stitched Labels (which are retiring as well) for the sentiment on the Happy Tails card and then just stamped the sentiment right on to the DSP for the Nine Lives card.  I tend to forget about stamping on our DSP!  And of course, that gorgeous Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam binding pulls it all together.  I’m really going to miss this ribbon as well, it’s just soooo vibrant!

Here a two more cards I made with the 2 sets.

Here’s a better look at the See A Silhoutte DSP,  just look at those gorgeous colors!

I hope you have enjoyed my Bon Voyage to 2 favorite stamp sets!  Be sure to check out the Last Chance Products page to grab these 2 stamp sets before they are gone for good!

Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card

Today I’m sharing a 2nd card that we created in my last virtual card class.  This one features the Magnolia Lane Memories and More cards along with the Magnolia Lane DSP, both of which are on the Last Chance Product promotion and only available while supplies last! (NOTE – the regular package of DSP has sold out but you can still purchase the Magnolia Lane Bulk Designer Series Paper which gives you even more amazing papers to work with!)

I just love the different look of the Memories and More card pack, and having the decorated envelope insert really ties it all together.


 

Here’s a close up of the flower, which was so easy to create using the Magnolia Memory dies.

 

And here’s the inside of the card.  I used the Stitched So Sweetly dies, which I absolutely LOVE!

 

Here are the instructions for making this card.  I hope you’ll give it a try!  It’s a very versatile design and you can add any sentiment you wish to the inside 🙂

SU! Day Of Caring – Open to ALL!

 

Stampin’ UP! regularly schedules a Day of Service among its employees, and this time the event is open to anyone who wants to participate!  For this year’s Day of Service, they will use the Share Sunshine PDF Download to make and send cards to loved ones, frontline workers, etc.  You can find my previous post about the Share Sunshine PDF download here.

The public event will occur on Thursday, May 21st at 2:00pm MT (4:00pm ET) and it will be held on SU! CEO, Sara Douglass’s personal FB page, which you can find here.  There’s a little bit of prep required if you want to participate in the live event.  But, if you are unable to participate in the live craft party, the replay will be available to view any time on Sara’s Facebook page.  And of course, you are welcome to just watch the event if that’s more suitable for you.

To follow along during the live craft party, you will need card bases, Designer Series Paper (or any double-sided 12×12 craft paper you have on hand), a printed copy of the Share Sunshine PDF Download (which can be purchased here) (or use your own sentiments), embellishments, adhesive, and scissors or a Paper Trimmer. To make it easy for everyone to participate, we’ve also created an instruction sheet for Sara’s four-step cards, which includes a cut map for your Designer Series Paper (any Designer Series Paper will work). Note: A full package of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper will be enough to make four kits (each kit makes 20 cards), or you can just work with 3 sheets of 12×12 paper to make 20 cards.  You can find the instruction sheet here. You are encouraged you to come prepared with pre-cut Designer Series Paper!

Sara shared on her FB page how to cut the 12×12 paper so that you’d have exactly what you need to make the cards.  Her video for that is here.

Here are a few samples of the cards Sara has created using the suggested layout from her PDF above.

 

Happy Stamping!

Monday Morning Puzzle Fun!

 

If you remember, a few weeks again I posted info about Stampin’ UP!’s promotion to help recognize all the amazing individuals who have gone above and beyond the challenge in the battle against the pandemic.  That promotion is still going on so there’s still time to purchase and download the amazing bundle of sentiments!  All the details on how to do that are below.

But, I thought I’d add a little fun into the mix today.  You’ll remember that I made this card to give to a very good friend using sentiments from the COVID-19 promotion.  If you click on it, this image will be turned into a jigsaw puzzle that you can assemble right at your desktop!  How cool is that??  The puzzle pieces will all be shown in the direction they need to be, you just move them around like you would a regular puzzle.  Another demonstrator shared this feature on her blog and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you 🙂  You can see her blog here, Song of my Heart Stampers).

Have fun playing and have a wonderful week!
