WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #76 – WHAT’S WITH THE NEW CLEANING PAD!

Wednesday’s WOW #76 we are looking at a cool new product today.  The New Stamp Cleaning Pad.  Perhaps you have seen it in the catalogue and was curious about it Or maybe you hadn’t even noticed.  (see page 182). I know it took a few looks before I saw it. 

What’s this Cleaning Pad about?

This cool new Stampin’ Up! Cleaning Pad is small in size, about the size of an inkpad, and is great if you are packing for a stamp day or a stamp camp.  It easily fits in your little tote.  Or if you are at home and not wanting to get your larger Stampin’ Scrub out.

It already has a cleaner on it so there is no need for additional spray mists or water.  When it dries out there is a Cleaning Pad Refill that you can buy very reasonably priced to re-moisten it.

Here is an information block with more information.  It is ready for you to PIN too for future reference.

Have a great day,

Jenny

INCOLOR ROSES WITH TO A WILD ROSE!

I shared a few cards with you last week using the To A Wild Rose bundle. (Head back a few posts if you missed them). I can now share these cards with you. These are using the new 2019-2021 Incolors. 

On each incolor card mat I embossed that with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  For the roses I stamped the outline in the Incolor and the partly detailed flower stamp inside to fill the rose.  If you are having trouble lining up the stamps be sure the check the helpful tip further below.

The leaves are stamped with Granny Apple Green for the outline and Pear Pizzazz for the inside of the leaf.  I used the leaf that has the stem on it.  There are 3 leaf stamps so you have a number of options.

Here is a closer look at each one.  You are probably familiar with the new Incolors by now.

Pretty Peacock

Seaside Spray

Purple Posy

Rococo Rose

Terracotta Tile

What’s your favourite?

The Wild Rose Bundle includes the To A Wild Rose stamp set and the Wild Rose dies.  I love the stitched shape for sentiments.

TIP: Check the image below to show how to line up the stamps.  I did share this in a post last week but if you missed it I thought I would share it again.  Just mark the back of the stamp in the same position.  When you stamp each one place this mark in the same position each time. This will make it much easier to line up.

In Australia?  You can grab this bundle in my store now -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: HXRVAQUA

The Wild Rose Bundle is $93.50 AUS (receive the Tutorial Bundle of 12 projects sent out to you after as a little Thank You.

TO A WILD ROSE FOR JULY STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOG HOP!

Hello and welcome to another Stamping Around The World Tutorial Blog Hop.  I am excited to share again with this amazing, talented group.  You might have come from Jo Anne’s blog -> HERE or just starting out.  Either way, enjoy the hop.

Each month this group compiles a Bundle of Projects to send out free following orders from our customers, or people are able to purchase the tutorials regardless of where they live in the world.

We also come together to Blog Hop this time each month.  For our projects for the Blog Hop we create a project using the same stamp set we used in our Tutorials.  This month I used To A Wild Rose.

This is the card I have to share with you today.  It is not an original design and I have seen it on a few blogs but I am not sure what it is called.  I am calling it a Topper Card. 🙂 I have the measurements below.

THE TOPPER CARD

I have used the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for the front of the card. Isn’t it pretty?

I stamped the large sentiment image on the first card.  It is a beautiful sentiment.  What a blessing it is to have a true friend.  I am very thankful for the blessing of a number of true friends.  I really loved the sentiment and wanted to use it.  The sentiment was diecut with the stitched label shape in the Wild Rose dies.  I backed it with some Silver Glimmer Paper which I had punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and cut in half.

When I finished the card the sentiment seemed to be too large and out of proportion or so I thought.    What do you think?  I re-stamped a smaller sentiment to go on the front.  The smaller sentiment was diecut with the Stitched Labels dies.

The rose in this set is created with 3 stamps.  You can use one, two or all three stamps together. I used all 3 in this one. The rose was stamped on scrap white paper.  Firstly stamp the outline rose image in Blackberry Bliss, the sparser filler image was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and the more detailed centre stamp was stamped in Rich Razzleberry.  I love how you get the depth to the flower with the multiple images.

I will say it can be a little tricky lining up the 3 images for the rose.  I will share a tip with you.

TIP FOR STAMPING THE ROSE: On each of the stamps I made a mark in pen on the back of each stamp in the same position.  When you stamp you can position the stamp in the same orientation each time.  It saves so much time and frustration – let me tell you.  Here is a photo showing the marks on the stamp. I hope this tip helps.

THE INSIDE OF THE TOPPER CARD

Of course, don’t miss the inside.  I had a strip of designer series paper over so I adhered that on to a piece of white card.  I had stamped an extra rose as I wasn’t sure which one to use for the front.  So I adhered that to the bottom right corner and trimmed off the overhang.  (This rose was stamped in blackberry Bliss for the outline image and Rich Razzleberry for the centre).

MAKE YOUR OWN TOPPER CARD

For the base card, cut card to 10.5cm x 21cm, score at 10.5cm.   (4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″).

Cut Designer Series Paper to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)

Cut White card for inside to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8).

To create the Topper part.  Make this any shape you desire.  I have used the Layering Circles Framelits. 

The topper is placed on the base card on the fold line with half of the topper overhanging. Remember when you add the topper to the top of the card only place your dimensionals to the lower half of the Topper shape so you don’t see them at the back.

You can see the To A Wild Rose Bundle in my store now -> HERE.  $93.50 AUS.

SUNDAY SUITES – MOSAIC MOOD!

I don’t usually post on a Sunday but today I am starting a new series on my blog.  Most Sundays I am going to share  with you about some of the Stampin’ Up! Suites available for Sunday Suites. You hear about the Suites but sometimes don’t see them closely.

I have been sharing some projects this past week with the Mosaic Mood Suite so I thought we would start here today.

Introducing the Mosaic Mood Suite.

Look closely at the samples.  The images are pretty cool right.  They look like mosaic tiles.  You can easily cut some of the images from the pretty Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

Here is a closer look at the papers.  You can’t tell in the photo but some of the images have a shiny finish.  It looks – and feels really nice.

The colours in the papers are Blushing Bride, Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla, Whisper White

To see the complete suite see below.

You have lovely Flower Faceted Gems. 8 each of 3 colours: Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Terracotta Tile.  The Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon is so soft and gorgeous. The Timeless Label Punch can be used for many of your Sentiments.  I love the funky Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  You could use that for many different occasions for a fun background on your cards.

With all the Suites, you can buy the items individually or buy them in the Suite Bundle with just one item code.  Makes ordering so much quicker.   This is what you will find in the Mosaic Mood Suite Bundle.  $130.25 AUS

Here are just a couple more samples for you.  You can see the images closer that has been cut from the paper and even the funky embossing.

These are available in my store now -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy your Sunday,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #74 – THE NEW 3D EMBOSSING FOLDER PLATE!

For Wednesday’s WOW! #74 I have a new product to tell you about. It’s only just been released and not even in the Annual Catalogue.  It is the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  You might just want to know about it.

As you know the Big Shot machine has been retired and we are waiting with baited breath what the new machine will be.  We now also have new style 3D Embossing Folders.  They are slightly thinner so when you run them through your machine the impression won’t come out as well as you might like.

This Embossing Folder plate will help you get that better impression.  Now you could use some shims of card – well you are going to require quite a few pieces of card, but this plate makes it so much easier.

I have the details below how to create your sandwich for the machine when you run it through.

You can PIN this image too so you can come back to it for reference often.

I think you will find this plate very useful.  It measures 22.2cm x 15.6cm (8-3/4″ x 6-1/8″). It is not very expensive either and will save a lot of aggravation.

Find it in my store now -> HERE.  $17.50 AUS.  Please use the Host Code: HXRVAQUA

I hope you found that helpful and now know what this plate is used for.

Thanks for visiting my corner of the world.  I love sharing with you.  Have a great day,

Jenny

DAISY LANE SMILE!

Another Daisy Lane card for you today.  Just a bit of stamping and punching a few daisies out but it is a very simple card.  The stripey paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper works well with it I think.  I went through my stack of current paper to see what would be best.

Here is the card.

The dots in Pool Party over the card are from the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set. Stamp the daisies (the large and the small one) in Calypso Coral on white card and punch them out with the Daisy Punches. You will need 4 small ones and 2 larger ones.  You use 2 daisies for each daisy flower.  I added some Gold Gems in the centres of the daisies.

You can get a pack of these Gold Gems or the silver ones as the free gift for this week.  Here are the details how to order your Daisy Lane Bundle, (or any other products).

THIS WEEKS SPECIAL ONLY:

Order the Daisy Lane Bundle and receive a pack of Clear or Gold Faceted Gems free. (your choice of colour).  Great for the centres for your daisies.

BIRD BALLAD WEEK DAY 5 – CUTE TAGS!

I have been sharing cards all week for my Bird Ballad Week.  Have you liked seeing them?  Today I thought I would show you some tags I have made.

These first ones are very simple.  I adhered a strip of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a strip of White card.  This makes the tags more sturdy.  Then I could punch them with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  It was just a matter of tying through some Mint Macaron Ribbon and I added a small sentiment on Petal Pink card with some loops of Silver Thread behind.

I made a number of these tags below. These were little Thank You tags for customer orders this month.  Did you get one??

For these tags I added some of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to White card again and punched them out with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. These were then decorated a little differently.

For the “thank you” flower one I stamped the flower on some scrap white card and coloured it with the Stampin’ Blends.  The sentiment was stamped on Mint Macaron card and punched out with the new Timeless Label Punch. I positioned the flower on the card so I could see where to stamp the leaves on it.  Then when I had done that I raised up the flower with Dimensionals.

For the other tag I stamped the sentiment (which is from a Demonstrator stamp set – Workshop Words Too).  It’s hard to see but I diecut a flower from the Wild Rose Dies out of Vellum and added it under the sentiment piece.

Did you see the fringing though??  This is made from the Woven Threads Trim.  I just pulled off the stitching from along the bottom to the length I wanted.  Here you can see it clearer in the photo below.

Below is an image for you to PIN on Pinterest as an easy reminder.

There you have it. 5 Days of the Bird Ballad Suite showing lots of different projects with this lovely suite.  I am sure I will be creating a lot  more with them so watch out.

Be sure to add this bundle or any of the other products to your next order.
