Easter Treats - For Peeps' Sake

There's been a change to the TSSC: Mary Jo just announced that the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge is no longer going to be weekly. She's noticed that people tend to participate every other week, so the new schedule will reflect that. Look for new TSSC posts the first and third Monday of each month. You can continue checking my blog each Monday because on the off weeks I'll post something else for you to enjoy.

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of helping host a North Carolina Stampin' Up! Demonstrator's quarterly meeting. One of the activities at these meetings is a shoebox swap. I made this project, which was designed by Marcia Enns. Isn't it adorable?
There's a Reese's candy egg tucked inside.


Stamp: For Peeps' Sake
Punches: Scallop Tag Topper Punch, Boho Blossoms (feet), scallop circle (cut in half for wings), circles (for eyes)
Big Shot: Fancy Fan embossing folder, Handpicked framelits
Tools: Fringe Scissors

Here's the back:
 For Peeps' Sake stamp set has a little row of eggs and they are stamped on the bottom as a finishing touch.

Big Day Birthday Card

Sorry I don't have a TSSC card for you this week. Unfortunately, I have been sick all weekend and didn't get one made. There are some cute cards this week and you can see them here.

Here's a card we made in club. It uses the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) set Big Day. I've shown two versions - one with the stamped image colored and one without it colored. The verdict at club was split which version was the favorite. Which one do you like better?

Stampin' Up! Videos - Coloring Techniques

Stampin' Up! has some great videos on its You Tube channel. Here are some recent ones focusing on coloring techniques. These videos use Sale-a-Bration (SAB) products which are only available through March 31st. Contact me to get yours before these exclusive items are gone.

These are all quick videos (about 2 minutes or less). Hope you find them useful.

Those of you who come to my classes know I struggle with my Blender Pens. Maybe this will help me, too.

I use my Aqua Pens a lot. They are very versatile. This yet another cool technique using them.

Easter Bunny

Because there is room, I open up stamp club to non-members for a fee. It's a great way for stampers to check out the club before deciding to join and it's good for people who aren't ready to make a monthly commitment, but do want to attend classes. At the last Saturday club class we had an extra big group, which was lots of fun. Here's one of the cards we made.

Stamp club regular Corothy invited some friends. They turned out to be three generations of stampers. How fun is that! They were all great stampers, including the youngest, Sapphira, who is only 10. She was a natural. Look at the way she modified the card. I love her changes, especially the way she bent the ear forward. She said he's waving "hi" with it. Isn't that cute? And he's chilling, crossing his little feet paws.
 At this same class, we made a St. Patrick's Day card. I posted it and a couple of cards by the class members here. They made some clever changes.

I got the idea for the bunny from Tanya Bell's blog. She's another member of the TSSC design team. She used her bunny for a treat holder. It stands alone and has an open box attached to the back.

The next club class coming up. Contact me if you'd like more info.

TSSC 358 - Guy Greetings

  I love the Stampin' Up! set Guy Greetings and think Well Worded is fun, so I'm pleased I could put them together for  my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge.
Stamps: Guy Greetings, Well Worded
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Designer Series Paper (DSP): Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack
Big Shot: Mustache Framelit

I stamped the mustache from Well Worded in Early Espresso. Then I highlighted the largest "you da man" by coloring it with my Stampin' Write marker so it's darker than the others

Here's this week's sketch. Use it to inspire you!
You can link your project and see the rest of the design team samples at the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge site. Hope you'll play along this week!

Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow

We made this St. Patrick's Day card in my last stamp club (a couple weeks ago already - my how time flies). It was a big hit.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Work of Art
Cardstock: Basic Black, Garden Green, Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red
Punches: Modern Label, Word Window, 1 3/4" Circle
Embellishments: Gold Sequins

I have a lot of creative people in my classes and they often make modifications to my projects. I love it because it gives all of us different ideas and helps us stretch our creativity. This was done by Jane Meekhof. I love how she put a few gold sequins at the bottom of the pot, like they'd fallen out.
 This one was made by Jyda Adams. I particularly like how she put the sequins in the rainbow.
Thanks to these creative ladies for letting me post their cards.

Every month there are good ideas floating around my classes. I usually don't remember to take pictures, but I always appreciate all their ideas.

I got the idea for the pot of gold from the Literally My Joy blog. A fellow demo, Genger Stiedle, reminded me that the stamp from Work of Art makes a great rainbow. I put the two ideas together into this card. I got the idea from Genger via an online group. Get a free bonus when you join Stampin' Up! during Sale-a-Bration. See details here. Plus, as part of my team, not only will you get my help as you start your business, you'll get access to several other demonstrator groups full of business tips and creative ideas. Contact me today if you have questions about this great opportunity.

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week-You Brighten My Day Stamp Set

If you came here for this week's TSSC card, I'm sorry but I had a busy week last week (including two stamp classes and a Stampin' Up! party - Yah!!) and just did not get one made. I'll have one for you next Monday. Since there's not a TSSC card, enjoy this post from the Stampin' Up! blog featuring two great products you can get for free during Sale-a-Bration (SAB).

Plus, the triple star and triple heart images fit right on the little house, making it ever so easy to customize your creation. And with four different sentiments, this stamp set works for just about any occasion.

SAB Product of the Week - My Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack

Here's another SAB Product of the Week feature from the SU Blog. My Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack is already on the way. Can't wait for it to get here! Get your own Vellum Stack for FREE with $50 purchase.

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week-Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack

Sale-A-Bration is more than just our biggest sales event of the year, it’s also the perfect time to introduce you to some of our newest products! We thought there was no better way to do that than by showing you just a few of the possibilities you can make with these fantastic new products. So without further adieu, we want to introduce you to this week’s Sale-A-Bration product of the week—the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack.

Sheer perfection is spelled v-e-l-l-u-m. This 6" x 6" stack of translucent vellum paper, in 12 different designs (2 sheets per design), is perfectly sized for cards—no measuring or cutting needed! And since many of the designs are line art or brush stroke, it’s also perfect for coloring or even just showing off a pop of color underneath. The gorgeous designs coordinate with Nature’s Perfection Stamp Set (Item 139097 [w])—another bonus Sale-A-Bration product only available through March 31!
