The brand new 2020–2021 Annual Catalog is going live on 3 June 2020, and we’re having a celebration! Anyone who holds a party or shops during the month of June will receive extra Stampin’ Rewards with a qualifying purchase. If your party or order total reaches $250 before shipping and tax you will receive $25 Stampin’ Rewards in addition to the regular Rewards! Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscriptions count toward a qualifying purchase. (Month-to-month subscriptions do not qualify for this promotion.) Call me if you want to book a virtual party.
Join me for a virtual New Years Party on Facebook Live – June 11, 2020 at 7:00 pm. I have the new catalogs available for porch pickup. Just give me a call to let me know when you’d like to come and I’ll put a new catalog on the porch for you.
We will use a new In-Color cardstock, Just Jade, on this card from the July Stamp Camp. The Sailing Home Stamp Set, Smooth Sailing and Dockside Dies and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder are also used. The new Seabed 3D Embossing Folder would be perfect for this card, but I didn’t have it yet to make the sample.
We will make this card at the July Stamp Camp using the Sailing Home Stamp Set and Smooth Sailing Dies. A Stamparatus would also be helpful to line up the repeating pattern. If you don’t have a Stamparatus you can make a more random pattern.
Register for the July Stamp Camp while the Sailing Home Stamp Set and Smooth Sailing Dies are still available as a bundle (by June 2)! We will make this bridge card. It also uses the Waterfront Stamp Set, In The Woods Dies, Sponge Brayer and High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.
At first glance, you might not know these cards were CASEd (Copy And Share Everything). That’s the beauty of CASEing, no one will ever guess that your project was inspired by another project. We give you permission to grab a catalog, pick a project that catches your attention, and CASE it.
Here’s how it works—you choose one aspect of your chosen inspiration piece and copy it on a new project. We selected the Thank You card from page 65 of the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog as the inspiration piece. Then, we used these CASEing techniques to create three new projects.
Copy the color scheme. The Grateful to Be Your Friend card uses the same pink, red, and gray color scheme. Did you know that pairing pink and red is a huge fashion trend this year? Try using it on your next project.
Copy the technique. The stunning blue ombre background on the Thank You box mimics the Thank You card, but in a different color, on a different project type, and with a different level of intensity. What will you ombre?
Copy the layout. One of the most used CASEing techniques is re-creating the layout. The Butterfly card uses layered die cuts just like the inspiration card, but with a completely different end result. How will you use the layered die cuts layout?
Do you need an extra dose of inspiration? Don’t worry—it’s right at your fingertips. All you need is a catalog and a willingness to experiment. Start by flipping through the annual or January–June catalog and pick a project that catches your attention. Then, CASE it (Copy And Share Everything)!
Here’s how it works—you choose one aspect of your chosen inspiration piece and copy it on a new project. We selected the Enjoy the Little Things card from page 125 of the annual catalog as the inspiration piece. Then, we used these CASEing techniques to create three additional projects.
Copy the color scheme. The Great Places card uses the same color scheme as the inspiration piece.
Copy the technique. The Thanks card copies the technique of the original card by incorporating a die-cut background with separate cut-out pieces added back in.
Copy the layout. Take the guesswork out of project design by using the inspiration piece as a template as we did on the Love & Joy card. Simply mimic the design but substitute different stamps, paper, and accessories.
Here’s another card you can make using the Ornate Style, Ornate Thanks or Beautiful Friendship stamp sets, Ornate Layers and Ornate Borders Dies, Timeless Label or Label Me Lovely Punches, Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack and Gilded Gems.
This card from Sally Halvorson uses the Label Me Bold stamp set from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It has a lot of nice sentiments and some cool shapes. It is retiring, so order it by May 22 if it is on your wish list (item# 151631).
