Snapshot and Flashback


Snapshot and Flashback

I love going to the Stampin’ Up! Inspire Create Share event (formerly known as Convention) for so many reasons.  And one of the reasons is all of the loot I come home with!  Here’s a picture of me packing to come home and all that I had to figure out how to put in my suitcase!

Loot from Convention_edited-1

Isn’t that crazy?!  So many wonderful Stampin’ Up! products completely free!  And tucked in there somewhere is the single stamp called Snapshot – the cute camera that is great for both card making and scrapbooking.  I’ve paired it with Flashback Designer Series Paper, as well as the sentiment from Hip Notes stamp set.

Here’s another project I created using Flashback DSP – you’ll want to pick up some today (July 31st) before the DSP sale is over!

I used my Aqua Painter and Crushed Curry Stamp Pad to color in the camera.

Pool Party 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon and a Real Red Candy Dot are all the accessories you need for this quick and easy card.

You might have noticed how glossy and 3-D the center of the camera lens is.  That’s because I used a big ole blob of Crystal Effects in the center to give it dimension and shine.  It took a while to dry, but I think this easy addition packs a wow.

Very Merry Thinlits


How are you doin't on your Christmas card making?  Need some more ideas?  Today's card is a fun combination of items from the Holiday Catalog as well as things from the Annual Catalog.  While I didn't design this card, I made it at our team weekend retreat back in October.

  • Our "Merry" sentiment takes center stage on this card, cut with the Expressions Thinlits Die.
  • The banners are cut with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits which line up perfectly with the "Merry Christmas to You" sentiment from the very handy hostess-exclusive stamp set Perfectly You.
  • There are two different designer  papers – I Am Me (Blue waves and coral polka dots) and Gingham Garden (olive grid).
  • Two small bows from White Baker's Twine held on with Glue Dots are the perfect accent to the banner theme.
  • The final touch are three Subtles Brads in Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party.


The black cardstock really ties together all of the fun colors!

Crystal Effects was mixed with ink from Ink Refills and applied to the ornaments with a paint brush for a shiny 3D effect.
