Stampin’ Up! Inspire Create Share 2014

Choose Happiness swap

This past week has been a whirlwind, what with moving and attending the Stampin’ Up! Inspire Create Share (formerly known as Convention)!  As always, this Stampin’ Up! event was a blast!  At Awards Night, it was announced that I had earned a place in the Top 100 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in the US!  Needless to say, I was blown away!  Thank you to my wonderful customers and team of From the Heart Stampers for making it possible!

Here’s the swap I took with me.  I was only able to get 75 of them made, but I always have so much fun swapping that I just couldn’t go empty handed.  I’ll be posting some of my favorites of the swaps I received soon!

  • I took the color scheme for this card from the Flashback Designer Series Paper, even though I didn’t use any.  Colors are Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Smoky Slate and Very VanillaHere’s a card set I made using several different prints from Flashback.
  • Choose Happiness stamp set is a fun collage-type set full of possibilities!  It also goes well with Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in the background.
  • Real Red cardstock creates the little accent to the left, and there is Pool Party 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon on top.
  • Pearls decorate the center of the flower.  I kept the Dimensionals to just the Crushed Curry cardstock circle sentiment since I was transporting them from New York to Salt Lake City.

Flashback group

Here’s a quick set of cards that really show off the Flashback Designer Series Paper.  With Stampin’ Up!’s Buy 3 Get One Free Designer Paper sale, now’s the perfect time to stock up.  Use this easy layout for any of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! papers.

And while you’re at it, pick up your very own copy of the most versatile sentiment stamp set ever – And Many More!  I’ve used 4 of the 23 different stamps contained in this stamp set for my card set, but there’s so much to choose from!

 

Flashback happy birthday

The card bases all begin with Very Vanilla cardstock, with a Basic Black cardstock layer, then a different print of the Flashback Designer Paper.  The sentiment is stamped on Pool Party cardstock, and the Real Red cardstock borders are created with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

 

With the color scheme of Flashback, I used Candy Dots from three different packets – Crushed Curry from Regals, Basic Black from Neutrals and Real Red from Brights.

Flashback happy healing

Timeless Talk and What’s Your Type

Timeless Talk and What's Your Type2

 

Oh how I love the pretty color combination in Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Soiree Specialty Designer PaperCalypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Garden Green, with Gold.   I have to admit, I wasn’t much of a Garden Green fan, but Stampin’ Up! has used it in two different designer papers this year (the other one is Flower Pot Designer Paper), and the colors that they’ve put it with make it just the perfect green.

  • The stamped images come from Timeless Talk.  I’ve stamped the bicycle in Garden Green Ink and the sentiment in Gold Ink.  A little flower from Boho Blossoms Punch with a Garden Green Candy Dot are cute accents for the hub of the wheel.
  • Two strips of Gold Soiree Specialty Paper accent the left side of the main image.  To make the Calypso Coral scalloped edge, just punch three 1″ circles and adhere them at the half-way point along the back side of the designer paper.
  • I love that we now have Baker’s Twine in both gold and silver – it’s a great accent to the Gold Soiree paper!
  • I pulled out my What’s Your Type stamp set to create the border of circles stamped tone-on-tone down the left side.  This brand new photopolymer stamp set is going to have so many uses!  Check out another card I’ve made using What’s Your Type HERE.

Hey You and What’s Your Type

Hey You and What's Your Type

Today I want to show you another yummy designer series paper – this one is Confetti Celebration with a fun color palette of Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay and Tangelo Twist.  This could definitely work for the man in your life.  And don’t forget – the Buy One Get One Free sale continues on all regular designer series papers.

  • We all like shiny, new toys, right?  So I hadn’t used my Top Note Die with my Big Shot in quite some time.  But it works so well for this layout.
  • You’ll want the new Hey You stamp set from Stampin’ Up! as a wonderful small, basic sentiment set that’s so usable.  It comes with Congrats and Thank You, too, and it’s just $10.95 for clear-mount.
  • You’re definitely going to see lots of cards made with the What’s Your Type photopolymer stamp set!  It’s fast becoming my go to stamp for little accents, and I just love what Stampin’ Up! has done with making it a letter set.  Check out pg. 161 of the Annual Catalog to see how this geometric set is also an alphabet set!  Anyway, for this card, I used the half circle image to stamp a border along the bottom of my card.
  • I’ve added a Candy Dot Brad with Basic Gray Candy Dot, as well as some Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine as accents.  Did you know that Stampin’ Up! now carries 17 different colors in their Baker’s Twine, with 2 different thicknesses?  That’s a lot of choices!

Zoo Babies and Flower Pot Designer Paper

Zoo Babies and Flowerpot DSP

It’s funny how an older stamp set can look so fresh and new when paired with a brand new package of designer series paper.  And the color scheme becomes so easy – Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Lost Lagoon and Garden Green.  In this card, I’ve combined Zoo Babies stamp set and Flower Pot Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!

  • You’ll find lining up all of the zoo babies easier if you cut out your 3-1/8″ Circle first using the Big Shot and Circle Framelits.  That way, you can get a nice  fit.
  • The Stampin’ Up! Fringe Scissors are perfect for making grass!
  • While Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry In Color buttons, I found that a Calypso Coral Button from the Subtles Button Pack matched perfectly.  A bit of White Baker’s Twine is tied through the center.
  • Did you notice the Crushed Curry Candy Dot used for the elephant’s eye?  Boy, those things come in handy!
