Cards: Thank You

Thank You Big Time!

The new Animal Expedition Suite on pages 26-27 in the Annual Catalog is going to be a big hit with kids (or anyone who is a kid at heart).

The Animal Outing Stamp Set is my new go-to stamp set.  I'm sure I will be using this set over and over for thank you, birthday, anniversary, and even baby cards. This stamp set is part of the Animal Outing Bundle (purchase together and save 10%).  

Here is the card I have to share with you today:

Animal Outing Card-2 6-18

Can you see the subtle brick wall in the background?  I used the brick pattern in the Pattern Party Decorative Masks along with the NEW Big Shot Embossing Mats to create that subtle look.  With the new Embossing Mats, you can make your own embossing folder using any decorative mask or thinlit/framelit dies.

Here are the products I used to make this card:

  • Animal Outing Bundlet (Wood-148323; Clear-148324)
  • Big Shot Embossing Mats (146327)
  • Pattern Party Decorative Masks (144103)

Bee Thankful Card!

I was so excited to see the stamp 'Bee Thankful Stamp' both because my Blog is entitled Be Stamping and because we just celebrated our Independence Day.   I couldn't wait to use this stamp and share the card I made.

Delightfully Detailed Suite!

Delight in the Details!

Starting tomorrow, June 1, 2018, you will be able to order out of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  So today I want to share one of the product suites that will be available and am very excited about.

Get ready to feast your eyes on some gorgeous goodies with this video on our Delightfully Detailed suite. With stamps, a three-in-one punch, ribbon, and more, this suite is a creative paradise.

Check out the video below that showcases many items in this product suite.

What stands out in this suite is the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (146907).  One design is a 12" x 12" pattern; the other design has distinct patterns to cut out and use on the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards (146911) or one of the Vanilla or Whisper White Note Cards that are 5" x 3 1/2" in size.  You could also add a card from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack (147038) to create a unique card with little effort. 

There are so  many things you can add to the Delightfully Detailed Specialty Paper to make beautiful cards.  Here is a card I made using the oval cut piece and the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also added a piece of the same paper to the envelope flap to make it stand out.

Delightfully Detailed Card 5-18

Fussy cutting is something that I find relaxing, so I cut some flowers and leafs, from the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" DSP stack (146289) and added them to the front of the card.  Can you tell what new color I used as the base of the card?  It is Shaded Spruce and it's absolutely beautiful.  I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! will have for Christmas using this new color.

Happy stamping!



Beautiful Baby Bear Card!

Recently I traveled to London, Ontario to see the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I was honored to be able to attend Center Stage where we were pampered and received lots of great gifts.  Thank you Stampin' Up!

One of the things we received was a hot/cold mug along with a certificate for a free stamp set of my choice.  I know it was great, but I had a hard time choosing.

But I did finally choose and it was the Baby Bear Stamp Set.  I felt this set could be used for so many things and it's adorable!

When I'm stamping with my customers, I really try to create cards for a variety of occasions.  I realized that I haven't done a card for a young child, baby, or an anniversary in a while.  So here is the card I created for you today.

Baby Bear Card

This stamp set is a triple stamping, stamp set.  What that means is you stamp the bear three times (see the stamp set below).  Here is how I created the great look.

1.  Ink up the #3 bear and stamp using Crumb Cake and the Piercing Mat (to make sure it stamped solid).
2.  Ink up the #2 bear and stamp using Sahara Sand.
3.  Ink up the #3 solid bear again using Sahara Sand, stamp off once and then stamp again.
4.  Line up the bear from the bottom of the legs and the under arms.
5.  You can start with #1 bear if you want...either way it stamps beautifully.

Here is the product used to make this card:

  • Baby Bear Stamp Set (141859)
  • Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (144137)
  • Delicate White Doilies (141701)
  • Calypso Coral 1/4" Ombre Ribbon (144235)
  • Cardstock: Calypso Coral (122925); Soft Suede (115318); Whisper White (100730)
  • Inks: Sahara Sand (126976); Crumb Cake (126975); Calypso Coral (126983)

Here is a picture of the Baby Bear Stamp Set showing all three of the bears and the sentiments that are included.

Coffee Break Suite!

The Coffee Break Suite is so beautiful, it's going to be one of my favorites.  You can do so much with the Coffee Cafe Stamp Set and the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.  Why not create your own card and add a gift card to give to that special friend.  Here is a look at two cards I made using product in this suite:

Coffee Cafe Cards

Who doesn't love coffee...well I do if it's a good mug of coffee or a cup of tea?  Whether it be hot (on a cold, brisk fall or winter day) or iced coffee (on a warm, hot summer day), people drink lots of coffee no matter what the weather is like outside. 

The Coffee Cafe Suite stirs up (no pun intended) the feeling you get when having breakfast or attending summer gatherings with family and friends.  The Coffee Cafe bundle (including the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups Framelits Dies) is at the center of this suite, while the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper is the star.  The colors and patterns in this paper are all so beautiful!  Here’s a look at the bundle:

Coffee Café Photopolymer Bundle

See the tiny, little Framelit in the bottom, left of the bundle picture above? That shape coordinates with the cups in the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper...oh yes!  And here’s a look at the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper:

Coffee-Break-DSP 17

Products used on the cards above:

  • Coffee Cafe Bundle (145331)
  • Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (144155)
  • 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon, Crumb Cake (144162)

Delightful Daisy Suite - Card Sample #2

The Delightful Daisy Suite is so great that I just have to share another sample.

Delightful Daisy-Thanks

The colors in the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (Calypso Coral, Dadffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pool Party, and Tranquil Tide) are gorgeous.

Using Night of Navy Ink, I stamped the daisy on Whisper White Cardstock.  I stamped the daisy two more times on a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock and punch them out.  I colored each flower using the Aqua Painter and the Daffodil Delight Ink.  I stamped the inside of the Daisy and then layered them on top of each other.  I finished the inside of the daisy with one of our new Clear Faceted Gems.

And don't forget to stamp the inside...
