STAMPIN' UP!S COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TIEF - THE ALL-OCCASION CARD FOR YOUR PERSONAL STASH

Hello, Stampers!
     I can't get enough of this Dynamic TIEF - Country Floral.  This TIEF will be carried over to the Annual Catalog.
     I created this simple card (and others) to keep on hand - an appropriate sentiment to be die-cut or punched out and added later, as needed.  It's a little bright and cheery for a condolence card,* but it's just right for Easter, spring, birthday, anniversary, get well or "just checking in."  The details are below.

*See my February 28 post for a softer look that would be appropriate for a condolence card.

Happy Stampin’!

Details
  • The Gingham Gala DSP covers the front of the card base, an A2 top fold in Whisper White Thick CS.  The Country Floral embossed piece is 1/4 sheet of Shimmery White CS, trimmed to 5 x 3-3/4 after embossing.
  • After embossing, I used Stampin' Blends in the colors below to color the flowers and leaves and a few random larger dots here and there.  I added a sheer ribbon and then adhered the layers with Multi liquid glue.  I added pearls to the center of the Light Calypso Coral flowers from the Share What You Love pearls.

SALE-A-BRATION - ANOTHER COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TIEF SAMPLE

Hello, Stampers!
      Looks like March will be coming in like a lion in Indiana, so it's time for something to cheer us up!
      Do you ever wonder how we made cards without the Big Shot?  I love the SAB, Phase 2 Country Floral Dynamic TIEF, don't you?  I posted a quick, monochromatic card on Feb 22, which you can see HERE.
      I used Shimmery White CS for the embossed area, inked the TIEF with Soft Sea Foam, and colored the flowers and leaves with Stampin' Blends.  The mat and base are Pear Pizzaz and Petal Pink, the ribbon is Pear Pizzaz Shimmer.  Supplies are on my blog.

Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! ® COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TI EMBOSSING FOLDER - HAVE YOU SEEN.....?

Hi,Stampers!
     Look at the relief and texture on this card!  I have seen lots of ideas for this Dynamic TIEF that is FREE with a $50 purchase.  You can see it on the inside of the SAB brochure for Phase 2 (2/15 - 3/31 - on my sidebar), along with some lovely samples, and more online, including some great videos.  I will share a couple of my samples here.
     Does it look like I colored the flowers on this piece with WW Craft Ink?  Uh uh.  I inked the background of the TIEF!  It was super easy.  I think I could have used a lighter, brighter yellow, like Daffodil Delight, but I used So Saffron, the color of the card stock.  You can use any color you choose, but for this recipe, I'll stick with So Saffron.  Let's get started!

Happy Stampin’!

Instructions
  • Card base is Smoky Slate, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4; two pieces of So Saffron (or, really, any lighter color you choose - Grapefruit, Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Balmy Blue), 4 x 4 and 3-3/4 x 3-3/4; WW 5-1/4 x 4 for inside..
  • As evenly as possible and not too heavy, Ink the TIEF with So Saffron Classic Ink on the side of the folder that contains the Stampin' Up! logo, add 3-3/4" piece of So Saffron and run through Big Shot. and enjoy the amazing results.  ;-)  Don't forget to rinse off and dry your embossing folder.
  • Adhere embossed piece to 4x4 So Saffron with liquid glue.  Add desired ribbon and glue or tape to front of card base.  Stamp greeting* in Basic Gray or Black, punch or die-cut shape and pop up with Dimensionals.
  • Add a little Wink of Stella to the smallest flowers.  Add embellishment(s) and a WW card stock to inside and decorate.
      *I used the Happy Birthday greeting from a retired stamp set, Rose Wonder and retired glimmer ribbon in Gray.  Find more products I used on my blog.

INSPIRE.CREATE.CHALLENGES - #038 Sketch Challenge




No photo description available.

Hi, Stampers!
     The above Inspire.Create.Challenges 038 Sketch Challenge was too simple for me to pass up.  I flipped it and used a piece of Whisper White Country Floral embossed card stock and added my cute squirrel friend from Fable Friends. Both were colored with Stampin' Blends. The lavender background is from the Needlepoint Nook DSP pack.  That's it!

Happy Stampin’!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT - 2018 STAMPIN' UP!© HOLIDAY CATALOG


Happy New Year, Stampers!
     Just a reminder that there are still lots of items drastically reduced in the Year-End Closeout, Retiring Favorites, Discounted and Clearance Rack.  Take another look through your Holiday Catalog and just click the image above to get to my DBWS. For example, we all loved the many ideas online for the Country Home stamp set(p.43) and cards we created at stamp camp.  I don't see it listed below, so, I would guess that as of January 3, it is gone.
     The First Frost stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits are listed separately with the carryovers below. This means they will not be offered in carryover as a 10% off bundle.  So, if you want the bundle at 10% off, you need to order it now.  Want this stunning Frosted Floral Specialty DSP that coordinates with the First Frost and Bundle?  It is for sale in the Year-End Closeout, so, you'd best order it now, too!  I think you get the picture. 
Frosted Floral 12 x 12 (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper


     Here are some of our favorites that will be carried over - yea!  You may notice that the Winter Woods stamp set does not mention a bundle, either - if you want the bundle, you need to order it now .  Also, the First Frost stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits are listed separately, below.  This means they will not be offered in carryover as a 10% off bundle.  So, if you want the bundle at 10% off, you need to order it now (p.27).  


Happy Stampin’ in 2019!
