Spring box

Seeing March stamp-campers with these spring boxes has made me happy!

It helped to view the Stampin’ Up! video on the Window Box Thinlits Dies, but I don’t think the assembly of this box is particularly difficult.  I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue (my preferred adhesive for almost all of my projects), but not so much that it’s oozing out the sides.   (I have seen over the years that words like “tiny” and “dot” don’t mean the same to everyone when referring to glue!)  I like the “slide factor” that allows me to move the paper before it’s permanently adhered — because it really is!

This box would be beautiful with the sides pierced with one of the other Window Box Thinlits, but it wasn’t practical for camp so we used one of the Window Shopping stamps.

The ombré flower is created with the Succulent Framelits Dies.

TBT: Marbling

When we moved 3½ years ago, the can of cheap shaving cream didn’t go with us.  I think I’ve only created marbled paper once (a darn cute project back in 2005!), so I figured it was safe to dump it.  And then this showed up last week:

What do you say, stampers — are you ready to get messy?

Sale-A-Bration final days — with something terrific!

Just 10 more days before 2017 Sale-A-Bration is a thing of the past!  We’ve already seen the Card Tin sell out, and just this week the supply of 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack was depleted.

To make us feel better, Stampin’ Up! has added seven products that are available for FREE with your qualifying order of $50.  These are products currently in the Annual Catalog or Occasions Catalog, but if you’re going to use any of these as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, you must use the special item numbers below:

This is perfect for me because I am working on ideas for an upcoming class featuring the Succulent Garden Suite (Occasions Catalog 20-21).

Happy birthday, guy!

I try every month at camp to offer a card suitable for a guy.  (In March, I’m all about spring, but I’ll be back on track next month!)  This was my masculine card for February, CASEd from the amazing Kelly Kent:

I’ve been enthusiastic about Designer Series Paper before, but I am wild about the Urban Underground Specialty paper.  Not only are the colors and patterns perfect, the two specialty papers are gorgeously metallic.  Yum.  Lately I’ve used one of the patterns as my background for card photos (as in the one above).  It’s a beautiful chalkboard effect.

I hope you can see a bit inside the card, where we adhered the scraps left after punching the banners.  The graphic Happy Birthday image from Big on Birthdays is perfect for this card.

Tin of Cards deadline

This is the last day to register for the Tin of Cards class!  Here’s what I’m doing with my tins of completed cards:  two local organizations are asking for raffle items for upcoming fundraising events.  These will be perfect, with 16 cards (4 each of 4 designs) in a darling tin to keep them organized.

At this class, you’ll stamp and assemble your kit using my stamps and inks.  I’ll have your kit waiting for you — all you need to bring with you to my house on March 30 is a smile!

Love this color combo!

I love Blushing Bride with many other Stampin’ Up! colors, but especially with Flirty Flamingo.  We’re using it on this card in camp this month with Avant Garden, the beautiful (and free) Sale-A-Bration set:

To make the layout easier to stamp somewhat symmetrically, we drew a pencil line not quite half-way down across the white panel.  The stamping above the line was repeated below the line after turning the panel 180°; the flowers and leaves are both first- and second-generation stamped.  The gorgeous metallic ribbon is enhanced by tiny dots of Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details.

I’ll remind you, not for the last time, that Sale-A-Bration products are only available until the end of the month or while supplies last.  I think this set is worth having on your shelf!

Honeycomb bee

I’m not sure I’ve ever met a Stampin’ Up! bee image I didn’t like!  Since my name means honeybee, I feel obligated to use it as my motif.  (I wonder if stampers who come to my house know where to find non-stamped bees in my decor?  Anyone?)

Many, many years ago, when I would bake and make jam and sell those items at craft shows, my business was called “Honeybee House.”  This was back in the day before the web and before copyright-free graphics on media you could use (and before I had anything more than a 3.5″ floppy disk drive), so I “drew” my logo using Microsoft Paint.  It was an excruciating process, but I used the logo on my business cards, tags, and jar labels for years.

How happy am to be a rubber stamper now?  I admire the Stampin’ Up! artists so much and the other stampers whose work I copy or adapt:

Thanks to Dawn Olchefske for this perfect design!  We inked up the inside of the back of the embossing folder — the wonderful Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the Occasions Catalog — before running it through the Big Shot.

News Flash:  I don’t think it’s supposed to be a secret … last week we found out that the stamp set Dragonfly Dreams will be in the Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  It seems likely that the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies will also be available, but I don’t know that for certain.  What I do know, however, is that if there are bundles that exist for current products, those bundles will not be offered again.

And if you can earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle and another small item, it seems like a good idea to act now!

The Window Box

This month in camp, we’re be using the Window Box Thinlits Dies seen on page 43 of the Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog.  Although it’s not difficult to do, assembly of this box may be easier to understand and follow after you view this SU! corporate video:
