Just in Case - Birthday Delivery Stamp Set

It's Just in Case Thursday, the day that Patsy Waggoner and I share a project based on a sketch from one of our current catalogues.  Sometimes we copy the project exactly and sometimes we switch up colours and stamps!

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Birthday Delivery Stamp Set 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the brand new Birthday Delivery Stamp Set (coming June 1st!).  These products are so fabulous and very unique.  I based my share today on a "sketch" that I used in a previous Just in Case post. 

This was the card from page 34 in the Occasions Catalogue that I used as inspiration for my card today. You can see how easy it is to change out the Designer Series paper and the focal image.  This is a great layout to use for mass production of cards (you always want to have Birthday, Wedding, Thank you and other cards at the ready) and to use up your bits of paper.

Usually a framelit cuts out a matching stamp but in the case of the Birthday Delivery Bundle the dies also cut out the images from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper too.  Isn't that awesome!

Can you see the framelits on top of the cake, fox, poodle and banner? There is also one that matches a little girl image.  These images are so nostalgic aren't they? Well at least for my generation. LOL  So the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies cut out images from the Birthday Delivery Stamp Set and the DSP.  I can't wait until you see them for yourself in the catalogue.

I used the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and stamp pad on this little tag.  The ribbon is new and is actually created by cutting off the edge and and fraying the ends.

So you can see the 1/4" Stitched-Edge Ribbon (Pacific Point) has a stitched edge and I just cut beside the blue and pull it out and then frayed it for my card.

Here's the inside of the card today.  This is such a happy card with bright colours!

This Little Piggy Stamp Set - Reflection Technique

This LIttle Piggy 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

I'm so in love with the new This Little Piggy stamp set from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue which will be released on June 1st! So I had to make a card with two piggies in love.  In order to get the two pigs facing each other I used the reflection technique.

This Little Piggy Hogs & Kisses 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
I love the little "lips" and I stamped them in a brand new In Color - Berry Burst.  I added some Wink of Stella to the lips to make them sparkle.  Isn't the saying "hogs & kisses" perfect for this card?

I thought I would make a video to show you how easy this is to create.  Note I accidentally reported that the folder was Sparkle when it's actually a brand new one called Oh My Stars.

Colour Your World Blog Hop! Crafting Forever

Colouryourworldheader

It's Colour Your World Blog Hop day! Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world share a project using a featured colour palette.  This is the palette for May.  That orange looks so juicy and good enough to eat right!

Screen Shot 2017-05-12 at 11.07.00 AM

Today I started with the Crafting Forever Stamp Set which is coming in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.  Only 2 more weeks until it's launched on June 1st.  If you are an active customer of mine (placed an order within the past year through me) you will receive a complimentary copy in the mail next week.  If you would like to find out how to get your copy please email me (Canadians only).

Colour Your World Crafting Forever 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
I love every image in this stamp set because it speaks to me as a creative person.  The saying are fabulous too.  Another one from the set says "Crafting Forever! Housework whenever." Words to live by in my book. LOL

Here's how to create the card yourself at home:

Cutting Measurements:
Pumpkin Pie - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half to create card front.
Very Vanilla - 4 3/4" x 3 1/2"
Basic Black - 4 7/8" x 3 3/8"
Watercolor Paper - 4" x 3", 2" x 2"

1.  Stamp the large blotch image From Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set in So Saffron on the lower left side of Very Vanilla.
2. Stamp the ink splots in Pumpkin Pie on the lower right side and upper left side of the Very Vanilla.
3. Stamp the sentiment in Basic Black ink on the lower right side.
4. Stamp the paint pot in Basic Black Archival ink on Watercolor Paper and colour with Pumpkin Pie, Smoky Slate, Cajun Craze and So Saffron using          the Aqua Painter.
5. Die cut with the largest oval Layering Oval framelit.
6. Stamp one extra pot on Watercolor Paper and colour with Cajun Craze.  Cut out and wrap the top with Linen Thread. 
7. Pop up the cut out pot on top of the other one with Stampin' Dimensionals.
8. Glue the oval to the left side of the Very Vanilla.
9. Glue the Very Vanilla stamped piece to the Basic Black mat and glue both to the Pumpkin Pie cardfront.

Crafting Forever Collage  www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
Here are the images from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set.  You might not have noticed the fabulous images in this set including the paint/ink splats and the little hearts, butterflies, stars and maple leafs.  The "month" stamps are perfect for a personalized birthday card too. Order it before it's gone on May 31st.

Colour Your World Crafting Forever 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When I watercolour an image I tend to add some lighter ink around the image - either in a light blue or gray.  In this card I used the Smoky Slate to "anchor" the image before I started colouring in the different elements.

Colour Your World Crafting Forever 6 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
I really love this new Crafting Forever Stamp Set and will look forward to using it over and over again!

Please ask to join our Colour Your World Challenge Group on Facebook! We'd love to see what you create using the monthly palette.

Card Swap Sunday! - Delightful Daisy

On Sunday's I share a card or project that has been sent to me in a swap or one I've created for a swap.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for a swap with Stampin' Up! Leaders.  I can't wait to see what I get back from my friends across Canada.

Delightful daisy suite 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca
I used some new products from the upcoming 2017-2018 catalogue including this gorgeous Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and brand new 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon in Crushed Curry. I also used the Daisy Delight Photopolymer stamp set.  You are going to love it and it has a matching punch!

Delightful daisy suite 2 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

When you open the card you can see the full daisy.  Such a pretty delicate stamp set.  Check out another card I shared earlier using the stamps and the matching punch.

If you love the Designer Series Paper on this card please join my Product Share and get a piece of every new paper in the upcoming catalogue! Sign up HERE.

Would you like your own copy of the new 2017-2018 catalogue? If you've made a purchase from me in the past year you don't have to do a thing.  Your complimentary copy will be arriving in your mailbox this month (or I have a copy for my locals to pick up).  If you are not one of my active customers you can still ask for a catalogue.  I charge $10 but you will get a credit to use for this amount on your first purchase of $50 or more.  Email me to reserve your copy.

Border Buddy Saturday - Border Buddy PDF Card Tutorial

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddy Saturday today, Patsy here.  So much excitement about the upcoming release of the New 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Each month Alison and I create 4 cards each to feature in our Border Buddy PDF Card Tutorial.  In the past we have featured two stamp sets each month but have decided for this catalog year we will feature one stamp giving you 8 awesome ideas using a product suite. This will help show you how versatile each stamp set and products can be.

Border Buddy PDF May Eastern Palace Suite by Stampin' Up! 1

May features the Eastern Palace Suite which includes Eastern Beauty stamp set.  This is one of those stamp sets that I ordered because I could order it early, but will admit it wasn't love at first site.  But once I started to play with it and could see the versatility of it I guarantee this set will become one of those I grab often.

Border Buddies May Suite PDF Free Card Tutorial www.stampstodiefor.com

The circles and shapes will make really fun backgrounds and just changing the colors will change the look a great deal. 

Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies by Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Suite www.stampstodiefor.com

This fun little flower was made with the coordinating thinlits dies called Eastern Medallion.  While both the stamp set and thinlits can be used independently they make a great pair!  You can purchase them now in two great bundles that Alison shared with you last week Read More.... 

 

2017-2018 In-Colors 23

The flower on the card used one of the new 2017-2019 In-Colors Lemon Lime Twist.  This color is going to be such a fun pop to add to your hand stamped cards.   The new in-color products will be Cardstock, Stampin' Write Markers, Classic Ink Pads, Ink Refills, Ribbons and Bitty Bows.  It is so much fun to have new colors to play with each year. 

Buying all 5 inkpads and cardstock is less than a night at the movies and you get to play with them the entire year!

Border Buddies May PDF Tutorial

Don't forget about our Free PDF & Free Cards program.  It's available for anyone living in Canada or the USA and only offered through Alison and me.  This is a collage of our cards this month using the Eastern Palace bundles.
