Cards for Crafters: Love you Sew

Love you sew2

"Love you Sew" is a stamp set that you can earn with Stampin' Up! rewards.  The stamp set is pictured on the last page of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue.  You can earn the set by hosting a party and getting merchandise credits.  Or you can simply gather several orders together (yours and a friend) and earn rewards.  Imagine if you had a $200 order you would get 10% or $20 to spend on whatever you liked (including specially priced rewards set like "Love you Sew" and others in the main Stampin' Up! Catalogue).  And until the end of March, hostesses, can earn even more with Special Sale-a-bration rewards.

What I Love!

What I love"What I Love" is a stamp set available from Stampin' Up's Sale-a-bration promotion.  This stamp set is unique in the Sale-a-bration catalogue as as it creates images using the 2-step stamping technique.  You stamp each layer a lighter colour to get the multi toned image.  You can either use different colours or use one colour and stamp on your scrap paper before stamping on the image (to get the lighter version of the colour). The stamping technique helps make gorgeous cards quickly.    SAB 2016 catty cover

There are words in this stamp set too! You can get the "What I Love" stamp set (and others) for free with a $60 purchase.  The Sale-a-bration promotion ends March 31st, 2016, so don't wait to order. Shop-online-stamping-cart

Apple of my Eye Card

Apple of my eyeThe new Stampin' Up! Stamp set "Apple of my Eye" is a cute one!!  It has these adorable pieces of fruit (very trendy to use fruit right now!) and then some sayings in a fun font.  At our team playdate, one of the members on my team, Marsha Lavoie, of Burlington, Ontario made this sweet card got this card with my "Apple of my Eye" stamp set.

 I love how you can add the leaves separately to each of the different kinds of fruit.   Here's another project I made with the fun fruit set HERE.

Timeless Texture for a Shabby Chic Look

Timeless texture pinkI love this new stamp set "Timeless Texture" with its random pieces that can be used for backgrounds and adds to other stamp sets.  I especially like the stamp that looks like a coffee or tea cup stain (goes well with my favourite "Nice Cuppa" stamps). But the stamps in the "Timeless Texture" set also look great just paired together like on this card. With a little added sponging and the "stamping off" technique.

We made the Pink Pirouette/Soft Suede card at my recent Stamp-A-Pack event. Here's another card with a Soft Suede/Soft Sky Colour combinaton.  Which colour combination do you prefer?  On the blue version, the saying is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set "Hello" (see details on the promotion here).  On both cards, there is added shimmer from the Wink of Stella gold pen that is added to the words (just tracing over them). And the "rough" edges on both cards are just from using the edge of some scissors to shave a little bit of the edges.    Love the shabby chic look of these two cards with the  "Timeless Texture" stamp set!Timeless texture and hello

Nice Cuppa Tea Card

Teacup_card_nice_cuppa

Have I mentioned yet how happy I am to have "A Nice Cuppa", the tea set, in the catalogue. I'm a big BIG tea drinker and I love being able to make these cute cards.  And it is even more fun to have matching dies to cut out the stamps and matching designer paper.  What more could  a girl want?  Well, actually, the one thing I haven't used yet from the "Have a Cuppa" matching products is the "Have a Cuppa Embellishments". I'm kind of hoarding them.  They are just so petite and cute.  But I've just posted a picture on my Facebook page with an idea that Stampin' Up! used, so I've got to try that. Have a cuppa

  I got this wonderful window card from Ellie Blake from Toronto.  Ellie made a cute little peak a boo window through the card front to see the greeting on the inside. Love this technique!! And then on the inside of the card is a hidden little detail with the heart punch.  Thanks Ellie, you are "Tea-riffic".  You can see another card I posted using "A Nice Cuppa" stamp set HERE.

Manly Bear Hugs

Bear hugsI admit, when I saw the "Bear Hugs" stamp set in the Stampin' Up Occasions Catalogue, it wasn't my style, but this card is just so cute, I'm changing my mind.  I got the card from the Stampin' Up! Canadian manager, Dale Hampshire to say thanks for the work I did with the Canadian Strategy team for Canadian Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  It is an honour to serve on this team and try to help Canadian demonstrators get the most out of their demonstrator-ships. Read more about being a demonstrator here.

I felt this this was "Papa Dale" saying thanks to everyone on the team.  And a perfect card to send from a man.  The cute little bowler hat (is that what it is called?) and bow tie are part of the "Bear Hugs" stamp set as is the flowers.  And they can all be easily cut out with the matching "Bear Hugs Framelits Dies" (love love love it when there are matching dies for stamp sets).  There are lots of other cute little accessories in this stamp set too like a fish and a honey pot and a little skirt.  And there are some adorable sayings.  The "Bear Hugs" bundle is 15% off the individual price of these items.  You can shop online HERE.

Shabby Chic Quick Birthday Card

I love how versatile the the "Number of Years" stamp set, from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue is for making quick and easy Birthday cards.  I got this card from Sonya van Stee, a demonstrator on my team from St. Catherines, Ontario.  I love how she used the Shabby chic look of the letters and matched her background paper to match. 

For the background papers, Sonya used some of the stamps from a new stamp set, also from the Occasions Catalogue, called "Timeless Texture".  And she also just inked up the paper with her inkpad for a truly shabby look.  And although this card is quick to put together, I love that she took just a minute to round the corners of the main piece.  And the stamped piece is attached with Washi Tape to add to the Shabby Chic look.Shabby Chic Birthday card using Number of Years stamp set

 

 

21st Birthday

Oh to be 21 again!  Hey I'd settle for a 29th birthday.  Love this "Number of Years" stamp set from Stampin' Up! that lets you add an exact age or number (there is anniversary stamp too) to your cards.  And you can cut out the numbers, like on this card, with the matching framelit dies, "Large Numbers Framelits". 

I got this card from Yvonne Jackson from BC Canada.  I didn't realize how gorgeous the two-step stamped flowers turn out until I got this card.  There is one stamp for all the greenery and then you stamp the flowers with several other stamps.  Super quick to make a stunning card.  I can't wait to play with this stamp set.  I'll have another card later today to show you that also uses the "Number of Years" stamp set.  What age would you like to be again?

A Nice Cuppa Tea Gift

 

Nice cuppa 2
"A Nice Cuppa" is  is a new stamp set and Designer Paper from Stampin' Up! in the Occasions 2016 Catalogue. Love the tea cups in this set and how you can cut them out with the matching dies.  Adorable!!  This cute little projects is a card and gift all in one.  It was made my a demonstrator on my team, Cathy Craig, from Stoney Creek, Ontario. 

Cathy made up a little mini envelope, using the Envelope Punch Board.  Then she tucked a tea bag into the envelope.  She wrapped it up with a belly band from the "A Nice Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack" and a stamped and die cut tea cup.  I love how simple and sweet this project is to make.  Make someone's day and let them know they are "Tea-riffic" with this  little gift.   

Did you see my post yesterday also using the teapot from the "Cups & Kettle Framelits"?  I'm going to be playing a lot more with the "Have a Cuppa" products.  Stay tuned!!

There's always time for tea (and cards!)

I'm a big tea drinker.  I mean HUGE tea drinker.  I always have few cups every morning and afternoon.  And when I saw this new stamp set from Stampin' Up! "A Nice Cuppa" with all tea stamp stamps AND the matching dies, "Cups and Kettle" framelits, I HAD to have them!

I got this card as a thank you from a demonstrator in my group, Marsha Lavoie, from Burlington, Ontario.  I loved how Marsha used the Designer Series Paper that matches "Have a Cuppa DSP" to cut out the teapot.  Super cute tea pot.  And the saying is adorable too "You are Tea-riffic".  I'm sure a card like this would brighten any tea lover's day, just like it did mine (thanks Marsha).

I'll make time for my tea and to show you some more tea cards tomorrow at www.stampwithjenn.com.
