Hey There Flip Card

We'll be making this flip card in my classes later this week.  The stamps on the front are from the My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit.  These cute stamps are only available by subscribing to My Paper Pumpkin (MPP).

Subscribe to MPP by February 10th and you'll get a FREE pack of 2012-14 In Color Markers ($14.95 catalog price) along with your kit.  Everyone who signs up for MPP and chooses me as their demonstrator will be invited to a Paper Pumpkin Party.  We'll assemble the cards and there will even be a bonus card.  Details will be posted soon.  Did I mention the Welcome Kit comes with a size D Acrylic Bock ($8.50)?  This promotion is a great deal!  Sign up for it here.  Remember to choose me as your demonstrator.  Read more about MPP here.

When the card is closed, you see the front message.  The above picture is of the card as it's being opened.  The front is embossed with the Big Shot and the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The ribbon is Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, which is on sale this week.  The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the Patterns Paper Stack - Brights.

Below the card is flipped open.  Lots of different sentiments would go with the Hey Friends stamp on the front.  I chose thinking of you from Teeny Tiny Wishes
The lighting isn't as good in this one, but you can see the front circle a little better.  Both stamps are from the MPP Welcome Kit.  The Daffodil Delight piece was die cut using The Circle Framelits.  The stamped piece was cut using Starburst Sayings.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.  If you'd like to make this card, along with a cute 3-d Shamrock with Hershey's Kisses, and this card, you can still sign up for the classes later this week.

I also entered this card in the Late Night Stampers Challenge , which was to use a die or framelit.

TSSC 299 -

Here is this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge sample:

I ended up switching it around quite a bit, but I did start with the sketch in mind.  Just goes to show - you never know where your inspiration will lead you.

The sentiment on the front of this card is from Starburst Sayings, which is in the new Occasions Catalog.  It started out round, but I cut out the words so I could use them on the banner.  The middle section is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The globe is from Open Sea.  For the banners, I cut my cardstock, stamped it with the World Map stamp, and then punched it with the Banner Punch that you can get for free during Sale-a-Bration (SAB).

Here is this week's sketch:

Head to the TSSC website to see the rest of the design team samples.  Then use the sketch to inspire your creation and link it at the bottom of the TSSC post.

Thanks for stopping by.  Remember, Sale-a-Bration starts tomorrow!!  Woo Hoo!!

Snowy Lovely As A Tree

Here's a wintery thank you.

Stamps used are Lovely As A Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Snowflakes were embossed using the Big Shot and the Northern Flurry Embossing Folder
Sponged with Marina Mist ink.
I added some snowy sparkle.  Either it's just not showing up or I took the picture before it was added.  I suspect the latter.  Dazzling Diamonds or Dazzling Details on the snowflakes and just a little on the tree.  Either would work.  It just depends which look you want.  Also, Basic Rhinestones in the snowflake centers would look nice.

Love You More Cards

I have a bonus for you today - 2 cards!  Both use the adorable Love You More set, which is only available until January 27.
I used the World Map background stamp because I think it's perfect behind the stamp that says, "you mean the world to me."  I used Teeny Tiny Wishes and made it a Get Well card, but you could also choose the Valentine or Anniversary stamp from that set.  Colors are Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.
This next card is great for a Valentine or Anniversary card - or even just to let someone know he or she is special to you.  It just depends what sentiment you put on the inside.
The background was embossed using the Big Shot and the Chevron Embossing Folder.  The heart was cut with the Hearts Framelits,.  Both were sponged using Sponged Daubers and Whisper White Craft Ink.  The stamped image was cut with the Starburst Framelits, which are available in the 2014 Occasions Catalog.  I sponged around it with Real Red Classic Ink.

TSSC 298 - Lovely As A Tree

Here is this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge sample.  It's a 3 1/2" x 5" card and fits in the Crumb Cake Note Card Envelopes (Item # 131528)  which are on sale through today.
Stamps:  Lovely As A Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Naturals White, Pool Party
Ink:  Gumball Green, Soft Suede
Big Shot:  Bitty Banners Framelits, Woodgrain Embossing Folder
I used an Aqua Painter to color the tree.  Since the lines got kind of blurry, I stamped the tree image again after the tree was colored.  I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the stamp was lined up right on top of the previously stamped image.
As I mentioned, the envelopes are on sale this week.  Here's the envelope for this card.  I used the Oak leaves stamp from Lovely As  Tree on the back, across the flap.  I stamped the tree on the front of the envelope.  As I often do with larger stamps, I only used part of the image.  I also added Oak leaves to the inside of the card.  I'll add an appropriate message before I send it.
Here is this week's sketch, which provided the inspiration for the above card:
To play along, create your own project using this sketch.  Go to the TSSC site and link your entry.  You also can check out the rest of the design team samples while you're there.

The World Is Better Because of You!

Here's one of the cards we'll be making at my upcoming classes (Jan. 28 and 29 - see here for details).  I know I can always use another masculine card.  I'll bet you can, too.
The background is the World Map stamp set, which is in the Annual Catalog.  The focal point is from Starburst Sayings, which I got in a bundle with the Starburst Framelits.  They are available in the new 2014 Occasions Catalog.
Colors are Whisper White, Soft Suede, and Night of Navy.
There's still room in both classes, but they are filling quickly.  Contact me today to reserve your spot!

Happy Watercolor Bookmark and Tag.

Here are the make-and-takes from Saturday's Open House.  Everyone enjoyed the projects and had a great time!
Both tags use the new stamp set, Happy Watercolor, which is available in the 2014 Occasions catalog.   We actually made a modified version of this tag.  The first thing I thought of when I saw the Scallop Tag Topper Punch was that it would make great bookmarks.  The ones we made at the Open House were actually a little longer, so they'll stay in the book better.  We also added some dots at the bottom (you can see that stamp in the tag below - the Pool Party dots).  I like both versions.

I have to admit - at first I was wondering what to do with the "blob" as my stampers and I were calling it.  But after I started playing with it, I decided it adds a really cool look.  Stampin' Up! has a magazine for demonstrators and I saw a tag in there that I liked.  I modified it a little and this is the result:

Once I started playing with this set, I had a hard time stopping.  That's the way it should be, right?  So be on the lookout for more samples made with this awesome set.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Open House!  I always have so much fun with you guys!!  If you are local, come to an event sometime.  My group of stampers is the best!  So, you'll get to stamp, learn something new, and meet some wonderful people.  Win, win, win!

TSSC 297 - World Map and Love You More

Here is this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge sample.  As soon as I saw the set Love You More, which is only available through January 27, I knew I wanted to pair it with World Map, which is a background stamp in the Annual Catalog.  The reason?  The stamp that says, "you mean the world to me."  That stamp has a cute little globe with it, but for this card I only used the sentiment.
Supplies used:

Stamps:  Love You More, World Map
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Real Red, Early Espresso
Punches:  Modern Label, Word Window, Scallop Trim Border Punch
Big Shot (a heart from each):  Hearts A Flutter Framelits, Hearts Framelits
Embellishments:  Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Basic Rhinestones
Here is this week's sketch, which provided the inspiration for the above card:
To play along, create your own project using this sketch.  Go to the TSSC site and link your entry.  You also can check out the rest of the design team samples while you're there.
Check back tomorrow to see the new set of Weekly Deals.
By the way, I just have to say this -- maybe it's just me, but every time I look at the picture of my card, something looks crooked.  It's not that way in person.  I even pulled out the ruler and double checked :)

TSSC 296 - MDS SAB 2014

The title of this blog post looks a little cryptic.  I'm sure many of you can decipher it, but for those of you who need a little help:  Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge number 296 sample made with My Digital Studio using products from Sale-a-Bration 2014.  For those of you who aren't familiar with SAB, Sale-a-Bration is that wonderful time of year when you can earn a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with each $50 purchase.  SAB runs January 28th through March 31, 2014.
Sometimes I make my sample in My Digital Studio (MDS) because for some reason I can't use stamps and paper - like a couple of weeks ago when my dad was staying in my stamp room (which is also our guest room and office).  This week, however, I just felt like challenging myself to see if I could make a card using the TSSC sketch.  I like the final result, but I have to tell you - I could have made a traditional card much faster since it took me a while to figure out how to do the banner.  On the other hand, now I have this card that I can print out or send electronically as many times as I want.
Demonstrators were allowed to pre-order from the Occasions catalog and earn free SAB items*.  I used the One Big Sale-a-Bration 2014 Digital Ensemble for this card. Digital versions of the Banner Blast stamp set, Banner punch, Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (DSP) and Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack were all used.  Colors are Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Summer Starfruit, and Whisper White.  The phrase is from the stamp set Under the Big Top, which although retired is still available as a digital download.
Here is this week's TSSC sketch, which provided the inspiration for the above card.
Head on over to the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge site where you can see the rest of the samples made by the design team and link your creation to enter the challenge.  Hope you'll play along this week!  If you have any questions about how to share your entry, just ask.
Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the new Weekly Deals.
Have a wonderful week and Happy Stampin',  Sue
