Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Well, having a teen made me instantly like the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration set from Stampin’ Up!  My daughter is learning to play guitar, she loves music, and of course these kind of shoes are in style right now!  Perfect! 

I knew I wanted to have the shoes and the earphones be a popped up focal point, but I felt it needed more than just stamping.  So I decided to heat emboss and fussy cut them!  It’s always hard to do justice to heat embossing on camera and video.  However, it makes such a big difference!

Cake Soiree Tag Card

Cake Soiree Tag Card

Hello!  Today’s Cake Soiree Tag Card post is part of the February 2018 Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop!  My name is Shannon Cole and I’m happily creating in Washington State, (US!)  This month’s blog hop is anything from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, which are available until May 31st!  Yay!!   

Be sure to visit all the other blogs linked below to see everyone’s amazing creations!

There’s a funny story behind this card.  When we have our multi demonstrator stamp events we make name tags and favors for the guests.  So this was a combination of the two!  I thought it made a sweet card!

To create this card simply start with an A2 card base cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The Berry Burst layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Cut the next white layer at 4.25″ x 3.25″, and the next Berry Burst is cut at 3.75″ x 2.75″.  Finally, the inside white layer is cut at 3.5″ x 2.5″.  Add the DSP along the bottom, this is cut at 3.5″ x .5″ and add a small layer of Silver foil paper behind this!  All the rest is simply die cuts, WooHoo!  See my full supply list below!

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video

Stampin'Up! A Little Wild card & video

Here’s my Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video.  I had so much fun with this cute little expecting baby card! Even my little furry companion had to make an appearance! I left the blooper in the video for laughs, since it happens to be a common occurrence!

Start with an A2 cardstock base in Bermuda Bay.  Cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is 5.25″ x 4″ and this layer is embossed with the layered leaves folder.  I absolutely LOVE the 3D Dynamic impressions embossing folders!!

Use the Bloomin Heart thinlet die to create the heart background in smokey slate cardstock.  And cut the flowers and tiny laurel pieces out of the bermuda bay cardstock.  Attach with the Tombow liquid glue.

Stamp and die cut the baby elephant from the “A Little Wild” bundle.  I cut the tag top off and stamped a sentiment on the inside, just tucking the edge under a flower to stay closed.  Stamp the congratulations sentiment, add the ribbon, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

The perfect touch for this Crafting Forever Masculine Card is added by the copper heat embossing, copper foil paper, and Stampin write markers.

Simply start with a Night of Navy A2 card base, cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The second layer is Early Espresso cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, and the very vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  

Stamp the pen set ( which I love!) on the left and right sides of the base centered.  Also stamp the envelope at this time!  Clean the stamp free of ink.

Heat emboss the focal point with copper powder and colored with a night of navy stampin’ write marker.  Finally, the vanilla focal is cut at 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″, the copper is cut at 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, and the final night of navy layer is 3″ x 3″.

This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges.  It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing!  The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in!
