Sunrise Flowering Tree – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

It is no surprise to anyone that one of my favorite new products in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog is the Beauty of Friendship Bundle, 155834.

I decided to use the stamps and heat embossing to create the pretty flowering tree on my card today.  I used, for the first time, one of the new In Colors, Fresh Freesia.  OMG!  Where has this color been all my stamping days.  It’s the perfect mix of pink and purple and certainly made this card.

Layered Vintage Leaves – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0028_edited-2

Hello there,

Leaf images are not just for the Autumn Season.  We tend to forget about our leaf stamps through Spring and Summer.  Today’s project shows just how great the leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves stamp set are  used outside of the Autumn Season.

Today’s tutorial will show you how to layer those leaf images with the embossed embossed technique.  I think you will be surprised how this comes together.  🙂

Wonderful You – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,
I pretty much took yesterday off to get much needed errands done.  You know, grocery shopping, banking, a stop at the feed store for chicken food, etc., etc.
Then I took a little me time and browsed one of my neighbor’s apple orchard and pumpkin field.  I really lust after a property like theirs but don’t envy them for the work they have to put into it to keep their place going.  They literally have fruits and veggies almost year round.    I’m quite happy to be putting my garden to rest for the season.
My little venture however sure put me in the mood to do this card.   I brought together the Stampin’ Up! sets Gently Falling and Gorgeous Grunge to give it a magical Autumn feeling.  What do you think about this card for a very special person?
You can find the supply list and how to the get the tutorial for this project free or by purchase below.

Cycle Celebration 1 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #616

Hey There,

Check out this new set, Cycle Celebration from Stampin’ Up!   The images in this stamp set are going to be so fun to work with.  I have a million ideas floating around in my head. .. . . . . . . along with some other things, like old Gilligan’s Island episodes, lol.    Now I’m showing my age, yikes.

Anyhow, check out the tutorial for this card below.

***************************************************************

I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my brayer video.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT

***************************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Cycle Celebration (item number 130273)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Designer Series Pattern Paper from the Neutrals Stack

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, Versamark Pad, Post it note, Circles Framelits Collection, Big Shot Machine, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, White Gel Pen, Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Blush Blossom), Subtles Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Piercing tool

Stamped the Soda Bottle with Stazon Jet Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.

 

Colored the ribbon in with a Blush Blossom marker.

 

Added Calypso Coral marker to the right and left sides of the ribbon and then blended it in with a Blush Blossom marker.

Colored the straw using Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral markers.  Also colored the dots in the soda Crumb Cake.

Colored the actual bottle using a Sahara Sand marker and added more Calypso Coral marker, blended with Blush Blossom to darken the ribbon.

Cut the image out.  Stampin’ Up! paper snips make quick work of this.

Put the image face down on a Versamark pad and then pressed it in the pad to get Versamark all over the front of the image.

Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Don’t burn your fingers.  I used my piercing tool to hold the image in place while I heated it.

Punched a 2.5″ circle of Daffodil Delight card stock and masked the top 2/3rds of the card stock with a post it note.  Sponged Crumb Cake ink over the bottom unmasked area to create something for the bottle to sit on.

Removed the mask and sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges.

Got out the Circle Framelits Collection and die cut a 2 3/4″ circle from Whisper White card stock and a 3″ circle from Calypso Coral.  I could have used the 2.5″ circle from the Framelits Collection to die cut the Daffodil Delight piece, but I didn’t know what I was going to do with it when I started, lol.

 

Cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Calypso Coral, 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Crumb Cake DSP, 3.5″ square piece of Calypso Coral and 3.25″ square piece of Soft Suede DSP

Added a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding to the middle, adhering in back with Glue dots.

Slipped two pieces of Ribbon under the adhered one and tied them in a bow.

 

Layered my main image panel and added White Gel Pen dots to the Calypso Coral piece.

 

Added the circle layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up and then added 4 Calypso Coral Candy Dots.  Attached the card front to a Whisper White card base.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give it a try.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

Not Just For Fall II – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #606

Hey There,

I’m continuing on using the Stampin’ Up! set Gently Falling for today’s card tutorial.  I hope you are seeing just how valuable this set is all year long.  It’s so much fun using a stamp set in an unexpected way.

Leaves are on the trees, pretty much 9 out of 12 months of the year here in Ohio, but it seems that we really only appreciate their beauty in the Autumn months.  Why is that, especially since they give us such relief from the heat in the Summer by provided us much needed shade.  Okay, I confess, I’m a tree hugger, lol.

Check out the tutorial below.

***************************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Gently Falling (item # 123804) and DayDream Wheel (item #126939)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding,  and Island Indigo

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Island Indigo, Always Artichoke and Old Olive

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Soft Suede Seam Binding, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wood Embossing Folder, Regals Candy Dots, Versamark pad, Heat Gun, Clear Embossing Powder and Big Shot Machine

 

Load the Daydream wheel with Versamark and rolled across a 3″ x 6.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock using a ruler to keep things straight.

Heat emboss the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

Sponged Marina Mist ink at on the left side of the card stock.

Sponged Crumb Cake ink on the right side of the card stock.

Added Soft Suede ink to the right center of the card stock and around the edges on the right side.

Sponged Island Indigo ink on the left center of the card stock and around the edges of the left side.

Stamped 3 leaves on Pistachio Pudding card stock using Always Artichoke ink.

Stamped the leaf filler stamp using Old Olive.

Cut the leaves out and sponged Soft Suede ink on the stem end of the leaves and Island Indigo on the top tips of the leaves.

Adhered the leaves to the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the top of the leaves and glue on the bottom (stem end) of the leaves.  This adheres the leaves to the card stock and pops the top of them up but secures the stem.

Cut a 8.5″ x 3.75″ piece of Island Indigo card stock and embossed it using the Wood embossing folder and the Big Shot machine.  You need to run it through twice to get both ends of the card stock.  You can see the crease where the design meets but it looks like part of the design once the card is put together.

Added a 8″ x 9″ Old Olive card base and Soft Suede Seam binding.

Added a 3.25″ x 6.5″ Old Olive panel under the main image panel and the adhered them to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also added Island Indigo Candy Dots.

Here is the completed card that measures 4″ x 9″.  This size card fits into a #10 size business envelope.  Anyone remember how all the funny cards years back use to be this size?  Maybe I’m showing my age here, lol.

Know the Code!!!!

MYSTERY HOSTESS:

With Stampin’ Up!’s announcement  of the new Hostess Code, we can now “pool” Online Orders together (place them individually, orders will ship directly to you – within the US only, but use the same hostess code). When smaller orders are put in together, the larger order qualifies for HOSTESS BENEFITS.

That means FREE STAMPS (or other products) I can SHARE with YOU!
So let’s get started with May’s Online Mystery Hostess Workshop!
How do you get to be part of the Mystery Hostess Workshop?
Simply use the Hostess Code below and place a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping) in my online store by 11:00 pm on Thursday, June 13, 2013.
Important: To be part of the Online Mystery Hostess Workshop, once you add your first item to your shopping bag the hostess code must be entered just below the Special Offers section and it should say Michelle Zindorf as the Hostess.
Once all the orders are placed, on Friday morning, June 14, I will draw ONE name to get hostess benefits on the entire order! I will call/email the winner to get your choices.
Your Hostess Code is: 3MZWCWAQ
Ready – Set – GO!! Start placing your orders now!… Remember, the deadline for this
event is 11:00 pm on Thursday, June 13, 2013.
Please do not put the hostess code in if your merchandise order is $150 or more.  You would lose your hostess benefits that you would have coming already.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
