Good News for Daisy Fans

The Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight Bundle are now available in the online store.  For those who have been waiting for these, thank you for your patience!  If the popularity of these items in preorder is any indicator, they will continue to be in great demand.  Stampin’ Up! has adjusted supply orders accordingly, but I would still get these items while you can.

Besides the daisy, my card uses another fun new catalog item – embossing paste!  This new paste is very light and quick-drying compared to embossing pastes I have used in the past.  I tinted the paste with my Crumb Cake reinker for this card.

The paste is easy to spread over a mask – we also have a new collection of masks available – and the resulting texture is worth this quick step.

If you would like to shop for any of these great new products in the online store, click here, or use the carousel below to go directly to a specific product used in today’s card.  The Daisy Delight Bundle is a great deal at $31.50 for both the punch and the stamp set.

Order $35 or more in June, and I will send you this gift.  Please use the Hostess Code listed.  You’ll also receive a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards program for every $50 spent before shipping and tax.

Have a great day!

Lemon Zest Shaker Card

This fun shaker card is a CASE of a swap by my upline Terri Meehan, and we made this in our Buckeye Inklings Team Meeting last night.  The new Iridescent Sequins are perfect with the bright summery colors used here, and they are easily enclosed in one of our Medium Clear Envelopes.

The stamped image (Whisper White 4 3/16″ x 3 1/8″) is matted on Peekaboo Peach (4 5/16″ x 3 1/4″).  The longer dimension fits into the width of the envelope as shown above.

To enclose sequins, first trim the envelope 1/2″ beyond the matted piece.  Add sequins to the front of the pocket that is created, and secure the cut end of the envelope to the back of the matted piece.

I simply attached the shaker piece to the card front – in this case, a Lemon Lime Twist base with an embossed Lemon Lime Twist mat.  The bow is added last, on the outside of the shaker.  This is a super-easy way to create a shaker card.

Annual Catalog Favorites Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers hop for June.  This month we are featuring our favorite products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog (Chris Slogar) or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the projects.

I chose to highlight the Lemon Zest bundle, which has become an unexpected favorite for me.  We all have our “must-have” lists initially, and then there are sets that we overlook.  I had passed over this bundle at first, and what a mistake that was!  These lemons, limes, and oranges (or whatever you make them) are so fun and summery.

My background slices are Lemon Lime Twist on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The lime stamped in the foreground is Lemon Lime Twist with Old Olive sponged onto the edges for depth.  I used Melon Mambo for my card base.

How do you like the new sequin trim?  I think the smaller size is much easier to work with, and I am thrilled that it comes in black!

Thank you for taking part in our blog hop.  Remember that currently you are at my blog – Chris Slogar – so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next, and enjoy!

Beautiful Bouquet

I mentioned “Beautiful Bouquet” last week because I used one of its pretty greetings on this card.  Besides the wonderful greetings in this set, there are just so many images and pieces to work with!  I have only used a few in today’s card – the full bundle is shown below.

I picked a few leaves and flowers that coordinated with a strip of designer paper from the Whole Lot of Lovely Collection.

Lemon Zest

“Lemon Zest” lends itself to bright and summery projects like this one, and it has a coordinating punch (yay!!) for ease in cutting out the lemon and leaves.  We made this pouch at a Team Meeting in Columbus last weekend, and I love what my upline Terri Meehan came up with for the contents of this treat bag…

So cute, and a perfect conclusion for this sentiment, isn’t it?

Have a great weekend!

Tranquil Tulips

Back to basics with this one…all you see is stamps, ink and paper.  I used the Host set “Tranquil Tulips” on my card.  There is no special trick to achieve the watercolored look of these stamps, no stamping off or rock and rolling.  The stamps are made to produce these variegated images.

A pair of two step stamps makes up each of the tulips, and I have stamped them in Berry Burst.  The color looks darker than Berry Burst because the background is from the Wood Textures designer paper collection.

“Tranquil Tulips” is a Host set, meaning that it can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards earned on orders of $150 or more.  All orders, individual or combined, of $150 or more earn rewards.  Please contact me if you would like to order with friends to achieve this level.  I can set up a Hostess Code so that you can combine orders from several people in several locations to earn Rewards.  I love to help you earn all possible benefits!

The greeting is from a wonderful flower and greeting set, “Beautiful Bouquet”.

Coffee Break Suite

You are going to love the stamps and framelits of the Coffee Cafe Bundle!  Add the Coffee Break designer paper, coordinating ribbon and corrugated elements, and you have everything you need to make some great coffee-themed projects.

I have to point something out (because it didn’t photograph very well) – there is a domed window sheet piece over the whipped cream on the smaller cup.  What a perfect lid – these pieces are so fun!

This is a joy fold card that uses a Whisper White note card as one of the base pieces.  The other base piece is Garden Green, 5 1/2″ x 6 1/2″, scored at 2 1/4″.  I added a pocket for a gift card.

You can see the pocket as the card opens.  The pocket is made from a note card envelope – I sealed the envelope, and cut off 2 1/4″ from one side to use for the pocket.  You can get two pockets from each envelope.  I made a notch in the cut edge with my 1″ circle punch.

Completely open

Home Life

The “Home Life” Bundle offers more than this cute house and its fabulous greetings.  You can also use it to die cut a bunch of flowers at once!

On the left, I used the three-step house stamps.  I stamped the largest flowers with Peekaboo Peach before adding the Lemon Lime Twist greenery and then the Flirty Flamingo mini flowers.  I die cut the piece with the outline framelit.

On the right, I stamped the largest flowers again with Daffodil Delight, and you can see how the flower die fits right over this stamp to cut 9 flowers at once.  Love that feature!!

On my card, I added the Daffodil Delight flowers right over the largest Peekaboo Peach flowers.  This year’s catalog offers Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals that are perfect for this task.

Patriotic Blooms

As I was shuffling my papers to make room for new product, I was struck by my Brights.   There were some Real Red and Pacific Point scraps that looked like they belonged together, so I made them into these patriotic daisies.  I used “Jar of Love” for the vase.

The daisy punch will be available again in late June.  It was so popular in the Demonstrator preorder that Stampin’ Up! sold out of its initial supply.  Stampin’ Up! is waiting until the supply is replenished before taking additional orders for this punch.

Pocketful of Sunshine

“Pocketful of Sunshine” is a super-cute way to deliver a gift card.  I know a handful of college students that are going to love to see these pockets in the mail.  I used the Delightful Daisy designer series paper along with the new Polka Dot Basics embossing folder.

All of these new products from the fabulous 2017-2018 Annual Catalog are now available.  Click here to shop, or use the carousel below to go directly to a specific product.  Order $35 or more in June, and I will send you this gift.  You’ll also receive a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards program for every $50 spent before shipping and tax.
