Sandy Stamparatus is Stylin'!

Heads up -- our beloved Stamparatus (I call mine Sandy) just got some accessories!  I'm really excited about the new additions.  These are available on October 1 for customers.  If you're not familiar with the Stamparatus, check out the video below.

HURRY!! Clearance has been updated!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was pretty busy.  My son moved and I was on kid duty from Saturday at noon until Sunday at 6 p.m.  I love them dearly and they are great kids, but I'm beat!  I slept like a log last night.

I wanted to quickly let you know that Stampin' Up! updated the Clearance Rack.  They have some Fast Fuse and refills for those of you who love it!  I'm definitely getting some.  There are lots of other great products in there too, just don't wait too long or you'll miss out!  Click on the red banner below to go straight to the deals!

Brusho Dandelions

I truly love this Dandelion stamp set called Dandelion Wishes!  I decided it needed to be mixed with a Brusho background and here is the result.  I have also been dying to use this yummy new color called Mango Melody, so I went for a red, gamboge (orange) and yellow mix.  I think it matches pretty well.  What to do you think?

I started out by stamping the dandelion in Stazon on watercolor paper.  I let it dry for a bit and then started tapping out the Brusho crystals on the paper.  Then I spritzed with water.  I really love the different looks you can get with Brushos!  You can paint with them or use them like I did here.  I ended up using a sentiment from Happy Birthday, Gorgeous, and the die cut from Merry Christmas, Everyone! 

Watch the Stampin' Up! Video on how to use Brushos below.

Tin Tile love

I must confess, I buy every embossing folder that Stampin' Up! comes out with. They are very affordable and they give a wow factor to a card.  I bought the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalog which went live yesterday.  I didn't buy the Galvanized Paper.  It's on my list, but didn't make the cut this time.  This folder is gorgeous in any color!

I keep seeing cards posted using the galvanized paper and the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.  I decided to see how the Frost White Shimmer Paint would work.  I used a Stampin' Sponge and dabbed it on. Here is the outcome.  I used two different sets on this.  I needed a sympathy so I used the Thinking Of You from Rooted in Nature.  I decided to frame it with the Swirly Frames photo polymer set.  This is a versatile set!  I can't wait to play more with it.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please take a moment to let me know what you think.  I love reading your comments.  Let me know if you have questions.  You can find any of the products in my online store (click on flower to the right to shop or browse).

Animals Everywhere!

I loved the Animal Expedition bundle as soon as I saw it.  I hadn't thought about the versatility until I started playing with it.  I had so much fun!

There is the adorable bundle and also matching dsp called Animal Expedition.  Did you know that you can cut the images from the dsp with the dies?  You can even do a mirror image by placing the die on the back side of the dsp.  Just hold it up to a light to line it up  I saw that trick on a Frenchie Stamps video.  Brilliant!!  You will see the giraffe image cut both left and right below.  Also, you might notice the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder on the background.  On the rhino, I inked it up with Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot.  The giraffe card was not inked up.

The rhino was for a class card.  I gave everyone the choice of cutting the dsp or stamping the animal and coloring it in.  Most chose the cutting method.  In the last card, I stamped the giraffe and lightly colored in.  What would you choose?

Thinking of you

I saw this awesome fold on a Facebook live  by Karen Titus (Stamping on the Back Porch).  I’m not sure I did it exactly like she did, but I started with a panel of Tranquil Tide cut at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  Then I cut a piece of Share What You Love dsp.  This is an amazing card stock weight dsp.  This fold shows both sides of the pretty paper.  I cut it at 8 x 4” and scored at 4 and adhered it on the panel. I stamped the stump from Rooted in Nature in Crumb Cake and edged it with Early Espresso, then I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with Stampin’ White embossing powder.  I fussy cut it and adhered half of it on the dsp and added some Nature's Twine.  A 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece of Whisper White was added to the inside for my greeting and I finished by stamping a leaf.  The Rooted in Nature is such a versatile bundle!   Check out my previous post here: Rooted
