The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Boho Indigo Product Medley

Do you ever have times you want to make something, but you just aren’t sure where to start? It’s the blank canvas dilemma of having too many choices. Often, when I’m not sure how to start, I let the artists at Stampin’ Up! help me.

Suites, kits, and medleys – oh my! These artist-designed sets of coordinating products are a great place to get your inspiration flowing. Start with a simple kit project and step it up. Or look for a color combination or a whole design theme. I hope this tip helps you the next time you are looking for inspiration!

I get asked what the difference is between Suites, kits, and medleys? Although they are all groupings of coordinating products to make your crafting experience easier, there are a few difference.

Suites are entire collections of themed products that coordinate. A suite has at least one stamp set, sometimes two and usually has patterned paper, dies or punches, ribbon, and embellishments.

Kits include pre-designed and pre-cut projects. They can be all-inclusive or can include project supplies with coordinating stamps and ink available separately.

Medleys are more like a mini-suite. They are a collection of coordinating supplies, but not as large as a suite, so you get a bit of everything to inspire your creativity at a budge-friendly price point.

Happy Stamping!!

Toni

NU Demos Monthly Blog Hop – Summer Fun!

It’s that time again!  Here we are at the end of July, and my head is spinning that we are already past the halfway point of 2020!!  You may have just hopped over from Tracie Evans Langley‘s blog and I know her project was amazing, they always are!  If so, you know that our topic for this months hop is Summertime!  So here is how my brain works…Summertime=hot=tropics=pineapples, lol!  So since I had pineapples on my mind this is what I came up with.  I knew I wanted to change up my normal routine of posting a card so I went with a 3D home decor type project this month.  I’ve had these Tiny Treat Boxes in my stash for a while and they needed to come out of hiding!  And since I always have a fairly substantial assortment of paper bags, I decided to just stamp one of those to make a coordinating gift bag.

This project is super easy and quick!  I’ve included instructions and a video at the bottom of this post.  But the pic below shows you the pieces you’ll need to make the tealight.  And I used Adhesive Sheets to make it easier to attach the 2 pieces for the pineapple top, that’s why the top die cut is showing a white side instead of Just Jade. Those sheets are now a required tool in my craft room!

To decorate the gift bag, I just used an old technique of coloring directly on to the stamp so that I could get both colors I wanted for the pineapple.  I tend to forget about this technique, but it’s a great use of our markers!

Here’s an important tip on die-cutting the pineapple bottom.  You are going to cut your DSP slightly shorter than the length of the die.  This is because the die is a tiny bit larger than the 2″ area you will be covering on the treat box.  So you will want to work with a 2″ strip of your DSP of choice when cutting the 4 pieces of the pineapple bottom.  You can only cut 2 bottoms from the 2″ x 6″ piece of DSP so you will need 2 of those strips.

The other tip is for the pineapple top.  I wanted to adhere 2 of them back to back, with a strip of DSP in the center to stabilize it and give me a base to attach it to the top of the treat box.  In order to do this, you need to cut one top using the pattern you want to show, and then cut another from the BACK design of that DSP.  This allows you to flip it over and match up your first die cut.  I did use the adhesive sheets on the back of the DSP that I wanted showing

Here’s a picture of the tea lights while on 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my project.  It was a lot of fun to make 🙂  Now please continue through our hop to see the other amazing projects shared!  Amy Kinler is next up and she always has such fun projects 🙂

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Peony Garden Suite

Some images are timeless and endure through the changes of years and styles. The Peony Garden Suite is a perfect example of timeless elegance. From simple stamping to over-the-top, this suite covers all the bases. Use traditional colors, stamping and die-cutting to create a peony that looks like it came right out of grandma’s garden or create a simple modern, monochrome look with the flower stamped in a neutral color on Whisper White. I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this suite for many occasions.

This lovely tutorial includes two ways to watercolor and uses the Peony Dies to build a gorgeous 3-D flower. Let’s make something beautiful!

Happy Stamping!!

Create depth and shading in water coloring by painting on a light wash layer and then adding light layers of color to the area you want darker. Allow the paper to dry a bit between layers so it can absorb more ink, but not completely to avoid harsh lines.

Celebrate Sunflowers – Fun Fold Gift Card Holder

Hello, and thanks for popping by today 🙂  I wanted to share with you a card I recently made as part of our NC Demonstrators Stamp Along day.  This is our second time doing this on our FB page and it’s been a lot of fun!  Several demonstrators volunteer to do either a live video, a pre-recorded video, or share a PDF of a project they’ve made.  I chose to make a card that can double as a gift cardholder.  And I used our Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP and several of the new 2020-2022 In Colors (that coordinate with the DSP).

This card can be made with the pocket for a gift card/cash, or without.  You can also dress up the inside of the card a little more by adding additional DSP panels to cover the white inside the card, it’s entirely up to you!

Take a look at the video for additional tips for making this card 🙂
