NC Demo Hop: Techniques

Hello!!! I am so excited to be joining the NC Demo’s on another hop. This is a fun hop because we are going to be sharing amazing techniques. If you are already a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in NC I hope that you will join us next week. If you would like more info about becoming a demonstrator please let me know.

The technique that I used was the Embossing Paste. This is a great and easy technique to use and learn on. It is also cost efficient and you can make a ton of card quickly and easily. I used the embossing paste, palette knives, and party decorative masks and then mixed in some gold glitter and flirty flamingo ink refill. Add as much of the glitter and the ink as you want and as dark as you want and then take your paste and spread it evenly over your mask and paper. For my paper I used Real Red and my card base was Night of Navy.

For the sentiment and stamp set I used the hostess exclusive stamp set Merry Patterns. I absolutely love this stamp set and so glad that I finally have it in my hands. You can get it for FREE if you host a party that earns $300.. how cool is that. I also used my favorite framelits, the stitched framelits, which really are a must have if they are not already part of your collection.

This card was really simple to put together and it reminds me of Christmas in Europe. Very simple but oh so elegant. I hope that you will continue to join us on our hop and head over to the next blog.

Make sure to go and hop over to Tamra!!

A Bike and Goodbye

Wow today marks my first day in a new job. This has been a long time coming because I completed my rotational program and received final placement. Drew and I will be moving to Charlotte, NC in the next month and I am really excited for this new adventure. With this new adventure I had to say goodbye to one of my great friends at work so I wanted to make her a very special card. I followed up with the beautiful envelope I made the other day and you can find that blog post here

I absolutely love this golden bags (Item #144255) and you can purchase them in my online store. I think these will become really popular around Christmas time so I would get them now. Also remember that every $50 that you spend in July you will also receive a $5 coupon to use for August.

This card really has such a wow factor to it and it was simple to make. First I started with our beautiful Fresh Fig ( one of the new in colors) card-stock and also a piece of Whisper White. I used our new embossing past (Item #141979) and added a few drops of real red re-inker and silver glitter to give a little extra sparkle. It gives the effect that it is a nice summer day and you are out for a stroll. I then took our brick patterned decorative mask. These are really the best deal in the catalog because you receive 4 of them for $6 (item #144103). I took the paste and ran it on a diagonal up the card because I just wanted to give a sense that the brick wall was there. I stamped the bike again in Fresh Fig ink and then used my big shot to cut it out. The bicycle stamp (item # 145314) only has images so it pairs nicely with our sentiment only stamps which I used here ( item #143858).

The inside I wanted to keep it really simple so that I can write a lot inside it. I am loving our new washi tape (item # 144221) because it pairs with all of our products wonderfully. Again I used the bicycle stamp set images on the inside to spice it up a little bit more.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that this card inspires you and gets those creative juices flowing.

I also wanted to share that we still have our amazing incentive for new demonstrators happening.

Summer Night Tic Tac Toe

I took some inspiration from my Tic Tac Toe for this next project. I also decided to create a video how to on how I created this fun card. You can watch the video below

 

So here is the card that I created. I had so much fun creating this card. Mainly because while I was recording my roommate was making fun commentary through the recording. I had already decided to do a voice over so it didn’t matter but it was still hilarious to watch and be part of.

Again if you would like to see how I created this video you can check out the YouTube video here. Also make sure to subscribe to my channel so that you never miss a video.
