Garden Wishes Masked Word Wishes

Today I have a project to share using current products from the new 2021-22 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!  The design is actually quite simple but does have some special tricks so be sure to check out the FREE video tutorial on my YouTube channel.

For this project I will be using the Garden Wishes stamp set found on page 22 and the Word Wishes dies found on page 166.

The Garden Wishes stamp set has beautiful images and greetings.  Let me show you.


I have also used the Word Wishes dies found on page166.  Both of these sets are returning sets.  I hope that today's project brings with it some fresh incentive to pull these off the shelf and do something new with them.

See the words?  They were "masked" onto the front of the card.  Look at the video to see how I did that.  There is a special trick to the corners too so you won't want to miss that.
These are the three colors used to make the card.  Can you come up with something using just these three colors?  If you do, share it with me I love to see what others are making.

Hand Penned Suite

Welcome to my weekly "casing the catalog" video and blog.  I am so happy to be bringing you some instructions on how to make the projects seen in the catalog.  Sometimes we fall in love with a particular product because of the images we see in the catalog and then when we get it we are at a loss of how to use it.  I hope that by reading this and watching my FREE video tutorial you will be inspired.

I made a few small changes to this project but it still holds to the original.  I don't always have all the products used to create a particular project so I have to improvise.  That is actually what "casing" which stand for Copy and Share everything means.  Use the example as a starting point and then changing up the color scheme, or some of the elements used.
I chose to stay as close to the original as possible so that if this is one of those images that made you fall in love with this set you will know how it was made.  All the measurements and details can be found in the video tutorial.

These are the main colors used in this card.  Use them as a challenge to create a different card using the same colors then share with me what you made.  

Don't forget that I have an online store that you can shop 24/7 if you order less than $150.00 in merchandise please use the current host code.
May 2021 host code: YA23HJEP
If it is not the current host code just check in the column to the right  of this post to find the current code.  Thank you for using the host code.  Anyone who places an order or a combination of orders totaling $100.00 in any given month will receive a free gift from me.  Sometimes that is paper, embellishments, ribbons and sometimes stamps, punches, dies or embossing folders from my discontinued collection.  

May is also a great time to sign up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  
If you join during the month of May you will receive $155.00 worth of merchandise and free shipping for only $99.00.  Want to know more?  Contact me kcreasey54@gmail.com and I will go over any questions you have. Click HERE to sign up online.

Thanks for stopping by,

Today I am using a returning stamp set and dies.   The stamp set is Garden Wishes found on page 22 and the dies are Dandy Wishes found on page 162.


I barely got a chance to use this stamp and die set so I am glad it is returning with this catalog.  Now I get a chance to truly see what can be done with them.

I did bring in some of the new items from the catalog like the Pansy Petals designer series paper page 132 and the Inspired Thoughts stamp set page 52 as well as utilizing some of the new 2021-23 In Colors.



I added one of those sweet little Bumblebee trinkets and on the inside of the card a strip of the dsp and a portion of the flower stamp up the right flap.

Pansy Patch Suite

 Welcome!  Today is "Casing the Catalog" day and I am using the Pansy Patch Suite products.  The new 2021-22 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog is now live and you can shop my online store for the items I used to case this card.  Be sure to check out the FREE YouTube video tutorial on my YouTube channel and if you like what you see consider subscribing to my channel.

If you are like me you love pansies.  They are such a sweet, delicate and lovely flower, what's not to love, right?  This was the first set I ordered when the pre-order for demonstrators opened up last month.  

By the way, if you are interested in Stampin' Up! you can become a demonstrator and when you do you will get pre-order opportunities as well as discounts on your orders.  Want to know more?  Message me at kcreasey54@gmail.com and I will help you get signed up.


Now, there are some changes I made when I cased this project.  For one the original uses the Ombre Bags found on page 137 of the catalog.  I instead turned this into a card.  I did not have the lovely ribbon which is found on page 140, and I did not have the Checks & Dots embossing folders page 154.  But when you watch the FREE video tutorial you will see how I substituted for these and still came up with a beautiful design.

Because I am preparing this post before the catalog has actually gone live I do not have a shopping list for you but I will share the colors used and now that you have the new catalog you will be able to find these items by going to page 28.

Instead of the Checks and Dots embossing folders I used Brick & Mortor and it worked just beautifully.

If you don't have a catalog let me know and I will send you one.  And if you're online order is for less than $150.00 please use the current host code.

#simplestamping Hand Penned Petals

 

Hello Happy Stampers!  Here again with a #simplestamping card and then an added "stepped up" version of the same card.  The stamp bundle I am using today is the Hand Penned Petals bundle.
I am actually preparing this video and blog in April so the catalog has not gone live but will be by the time you view this.  Because of this I can't share actual pictures of the products yet but if you have the catalog which you should by now you can see this set on page 105.  If you don't have a catalog contact me kcreasey54@gmail.com and I will send one to you.  Then you can shop my online store.😁


This is the #simplestamping version of the card.  Because this card is so simple to make you really don't need a tutorial but I have also added a "stepped up" version and you can see the FREE video tutorial on my YouTube channel.  
The stepped up version has that cute little reverse scallop border.  Want to know how that was done?  Watch my FREE video on YouTube.

Mountain Air is a returning stamp set and one of my favorites.  Inspired Thoughts is a new bundle.  These are the colors I used.
Using blending brushes, some masking and the die from the Inspired Thoughts Bundle everything came together to make a beautiful card.

  • Inspired Thoughts Bundle
  • Mountain Air stamp set
  • Blending Brushes
  • Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, Blackberry Bliss, Bumble Bee ink pads
  • Adhesive Sheets
  • Basic White thick and Regular card stock, Night of Navy card stock
That's it.  I hope you enjoyed today's FREE blog post and YouTube Video Tutorial.  Please subscribe to my YouTube channel and consider shopping with me.
