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!

Bubble Over Bundle & some handy tips!

Bubble Over Bundle & some handy tips!

Today I’m sharing the Bubble Over Bundle & some handy tips!  Finding the correct BigShot sandwich can be a challenge,  so I share a quick tip for the right plates for the Dynamic Textured Impressions embossing folders ( the really thick ones! )  As I was doing this I realized I should probably create an in depth video tutorial just for this LOL… so watch for that in the future!

When I first saw this set it wasn’t one that screamed “Buy Me!”  to me.  I do, however, have a teen at home and thought it would be fun.  As I have created with it and seen what other crafty people have designed I have fallen in love!  From lemonade and fancy straws, to vibrant pops of color, and on to masculine subtle tones… This set is really versatile!

And here is the video tutorial for the Bubble Over Bundle & some handy tips!

Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette wedding / Anniversary card

Stampin' Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette wedding / Anniversary card

Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette wedding / Anniversary card I made for a recent swap.  I fell in love with this set right away when we did the Make n’ Takes at the Stampin Up convention last month!  

This card just has a classic feel with clean lines and an uncluttered look.  Simply start with an A2 card base in Heavy White cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The black cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the inner white layer is 5″ x 3.75″.  The emboss folder is thinner so run it through twice, side by side.  (See the video for a tip!)

I still love the magic of heat embossing!  Watching the matte powder change to a beautiful glossy shine makes me happy!   Add all the embellishments and remember to make your envelope pretty!

Here’s a Sneak Peek of Stampin’ Up 2018 Occasions Petal Palette Thank You card.  I love so many things in this new catalog!  It has been so hard to wait to share it with you!   Just a bit longer and it goes live!!

Start with an A2 sized card base in Berry Burst cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The Whisper White layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, this is for the front and the inside.  Stamp the leaves in Old Olive ink and the sentiment in Berry Burst.  On a separate piece of white cardstock stamp the focal flowers in Momento ink.  Cut out the image using the Petal Palette thin dies.  Then color the image with the Stampin’ Blends markers.

Lay a piece of Tear & Tape down at a diagonal across the front and adhere the berry burst ribbon, bunching as you go.  Finally pop up the focal point using dimensionals, attach the Tutti Frutti Adhesive Sequins and Pearls.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!
