Time to Celebrate the New Year!

This card would have been our make-n-take if we were meeting in person for a New Years Party. Instead I will make them up and give one to the first two dozen people to leave comments on the Facebook Live New Years Party on June 11 at 7:00pm. If you are coming to pick up other items I will include it in your package. If not, I will mail it to you. (Email your address to me if I don’t already have it.) The card shows off our new In-Colors for 2020-2022 and uses the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set, Ornate Layers Dies , Classic Label Punch and the new In-Color Ribbon. Join us and leave a comment to get one of these cards for yourself.

July Stamp Camp – Sailing Home Porthole

Two new In-Color cardstocks, Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider, will be used on this card from the July Stamp Camp along with the Sailing Home and Peaceful Moments Stamp Sets, Smooth Sailing and Layering Circles Dies, Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, 1/8″ and 1-3/8″ Circle Punches. You could also use the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder if you’d like.

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.

July Stamp Camp – Sailing Home

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.

July Stamp Camp – Sailing Home Compass

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.

July Stamp Camp – Sailing Home Bridge Card

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.

Inspiration Everywhere

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?
