Sneak Peek – Sparkle of the Season!

Happy Thursday!

Today, I decided to celebrate Christmas in July!

My card showcases the Sparkle of the Season Bundle.  It’s in the upcoming Mini Catalog and will be available to you on August 3rd. That’s only a few weeks away.

A fabulous and versatile Bundle, Sparkle Of The Season creates beautiful wreath designs for any occasion.  The Sparkle of the Season Stamp set has images for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The matching Seasonal Swirl Dies make it easy to create amazing projects that look as though you worked for hours.

Along with a Sneak Peek of the Sparkle of the Season Bundle, the buffalo checked patterned paper I’m showcasing today is a design from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and it’s FREE with a $50 product purchase as Sale-A-Bration kicks off with the launch of the new Mini.

I have one more Sneak Peek in today’s card. It’s the beautiful Black and White Gingham Ribbon.  It’s 1/4″ wide, is soft and easy to tie. This ribbon is so typical of Stampin’ Up! quality.

I hope you enjoy time in your craft space and remember…

Season’s Blessings For Fall!

Hello Friends!

Today, I’m showcasing another version of a project made with the images and die cuts from the Season’s Blessings Bundle.  

I was excited to use the basket die from the Seasonal Basket Dies.  This die creates great texture for any project. The basket has a simple and relaxed look. It’s one you will surely want to own.

Fun With The Basket Die

All of the dies in the Seasonal Basket Dies perfectly match most of the images in the Season’s Basket stamp set.

  • The basket die measures about 2 1/8″ on all sides.
  • To achieve a deeper dimension for the basket, I die cut one Basic White and one Crumb Cake basket and attached them to each other.
  • The darker shade under the white gave the basket a little more depth.
  • I traced the basket and cut a plain Basic White layer to fit under the basket.
  • You can use an Adhesive Sheet to attach your die cuts to each other.
  • I used Multipurpose Glue and a small paint brush and lightly coated the back of each die cut.
  • The Multipurpose Glue doesn’t dry immediately (it does dry quickly, though), so you have a little time to correctly position your project elements.
  • If you don’t already have one, be sure to pick up a Silicone Craft Sheet.
  • The Silicone Craft Sheet is a “miracle mat” when you’re using glue, or any adhesive product.
  • The glue dries quickly and easily and quickly wipes away from the mat surface.
  • There’s not a drop of glue or adhesive on your work surface.

So, get yourself this fun and versatile Bundle, die cut that basket, fill it with flowers and create something full of blessings!

It’s Clean and Simple Week At The Paper Players!

Hello Friends and happy Sunday to you!

We have a brand new challenge over at the Paper Players!  It’s Clean and Simple week and our fabulour host, LeAnne, has a fun Clean for us. Your project must be Clean and Simple and must have a “bee” on it!  By “Clean and Simjple” we mean, your design must have minimal layers, little or no embellishments and lots of clean white space.

Along with a new challenge, I thought I would showcase a new stamp and die bundle.  The Season’s Blessings Bundle is in the Annual Catalog. This is one of those Bundles that has so many possibilities. The images are seasonal or not, depending on how you want to use them.  The Seasonal Basket Dies match the images in the stamp set, and also include two really fun basket dies.

About Today’s Card

My card is Clean and Simple. A Basic White layer on a Basic White card base.  My color palette has deeper tones: Polished Pink blooms, Soft Succulent leaves and a bumblebee colored with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends.  A Soft Suede sentiment holds its own next to Polished Pink and Soft Succulent.

That little swirling bee is stamped with an image from  the Garden Wishes stamp set and die cut with the matching Dandy Wishes Dies.  When I was thinking about which bee image to use, this one came to mind.  I remembered he came with the swirly stamp.  It’s always fun to mix in a random stamp.

So, find a “B” in your stamp archives, add a bloom or two, keep it clean and create something fun to link up with us over at the Paper Players.
