Lovely Lattice (FREE during Sale-A-Bration)

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

Sale A Bration has started and it is my favorite StampinUp promotion every year. The Lovely Lattice stamp set used above is one of the choices you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase. This stamp set does not have any sentiments, I combined other stamp sets on my cards.

I used the rich color Tranquil Tide as my card base with matching ribbon. To color the image I did some simple water-coloring with my ink pads and an Aqua Painter brush.

The sentiments are from two different stamp sets, both are new in the 2019 Occasions Catalog – Amazing Life and Humming Along.

January is full of new products and choices with both the Occasions Catalog and Sale A Bration promotion starting – so fun! If you would like either of the new catalogs sent to you send me an email – susie@kalantarian.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending you sunshine & smiles,

Susie

Making Christmas Bright

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  I sure did.  I’m so grateful to family, friends and my StampinUp friends that helped make it a special time of year.  I so enjoy receiving hand stamped cards in the mail!

Here is the design I chose for most of my cards this year.  I used the Making Christmas Bright Bundle which includes the coordinating Christmas Bulb Builder Punch – so fun!

Making Christmas Bright Bundle

StampinUp catalogs have a neat feature – they often offer Card Stock Packs that coordinate with various product suites or bundles.  I used the All is Bright Cardstock Pack which includes 8 each of Real Red, Call Me Clover and Shaded Spruce cardstock – that set my color pallet and all card bases.

If you turn to page 6 of the Holiday Catalog you will see my inspiration for this card – I only made minor changes from the sample StampinUp provided – what a great resource our catalogs are.

Then on to the fun stamping.  I brought in a great tool to help me stamp several cards – the Stamparatus.  Here is my tip for using this wonderful tool.  Don’t stamp too close to the hinges, it’s harder to get a good image.  For this card, I marked my grid paper where I wanted to place my Whisper White Cardstock so I could get every card in the perfect alignment.  It was a great time saver.  SIDE NOTE:  If you do get a not so perfect stamped image, the Stamparatus lets you easily re-stamp with perfect alignment so you can fix boo-boos like magic!  I love it.

  

What does not show up in my photos is the glistening white bulbs and the shiny base of the “bright” bulb punch out.  I used Wink of Stella for this effect, it’s very pretty in real life.

I tried a few different color combinations, but they were all pretty much the same.  For my inside sentiment I pulled out a retired stamp set called Christmas Cardinal.  The falling stars are from the same Making Christmas Bright stamp set I used on the front.

Thank you so much for stopping by, and for your continued support of my StampinUp business.  I appreciate you all so very much.

All products can be purchased from my online store, see product list below.

Onstage Swap Cards

Monday, November 19th, 2018

I loved all the beautiful swaps I received from demonstrators at OnStage!

How amazing are all these cards?  Last week I had the wonderful privilege of attending OnStage in Orlando, Florida to celebrate StampinUp’s 30th Anniversary!  I believe there were over 6,000 Demonstrators there, from around the world.  StampinUp spoiled us with so many wonderful gifts and free stamp sets – I’ll share those with you next time.

I will highlight some of my favorite swaps I received in the coming weeks.  But for now, let me share with you one the two designs I created to share with my fellow demonstrators.

Miss You – Swap #1:

Here is my first swap – I used the Hand Delivered Stamp Set which is a lot of fun because the girl can be holding a sign (as I did), or balloons, a tall cake, or a stack of books.  It’s a photopolymer set so you can easily line up the 2-Step Stampin images.  She’s in the very back of the annual catalog, on page 229 – a Host Set.  If you are not familiar with Host Sets, these are items you can purchase only with Host Rewards, meaning for orders over $150.  So if you have a large wish list, or a group of friends that order together, or if you would like me to come by and teach a stamp class at your house with your friends, you can earn Host Rewards.  You’ll see more information about Host Rewards here.

I only made about 35 of each design, but you can see the process here.  I always design one start to finish, then break it down into steps and complete the others in assembly line fashion.

You can see here that I first cut all my cardstock, then assembled the base.  Next I did all my stamping, and lastly I cut out the signs, assembled, added dimensionals on the accent pieces, and finished with embellishments.

 

Here are the rest of the supplies used on this card.
