Pretty Cakes

I used several products from our Sweet Soiree Suite here.  The embossing paste that makes up the background is our new Shimmery White paste, and it is sparkly!  I have used some of the vellum pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit as well as stamps and framelits from the bundle.

Here are two more versions of the same card…

The cake is Pool Party with Bermuda Bay, and the greeting is from “Beautiful Bouquet”.

Another Powder Pink with Rich Razzleberry version.  This bundle is so great for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings.

Barn Door

I made my “Barn Door” card in true Buckeye style with Real Red and Smoky Slate.

The barn door slides to the left to reveal the second half of the message.  It’s so easy to get a great result on this interactive card, thanks to the tracks cut by the framelit and the great instructions from Stampin’ Up! (video below).  If you are receiving this post in an email, please click here for the video.

 I used this bundle to create a card with a totally different look last week.  Click here for my “Hidden Message Slider”.

More Petal Palette

The flowers in this set are so great for coloring – I used my Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blends here.  I overlooked the fact that there is a framelit for this flower cluster…and I even own it.  I fussy-cut these, but I am not going to forget again!  I plan to make these flowers in many colors, and I won’t hold back since I have a framelit 🙂

I think I like the dark background better – do you have a preference?

I stamped the background on this one, adding Old Olive leaves and Dapper Denim flowers to the black and white print.

Our Second Release Sale-a-bration items are available starting today – see the flyer below.  Also, today is the last day to order my Hold on to Hope Class To Go – click here for details.

Birthday Wit

This fun stamp from “Birthday Wit” pairs well with the printed pictures of treats in the Picture Perfect Party collection.

I made this into a fun fold, so as not to permanently obstruct the view of the goodies.

A 1″ strip of Berry Burst cardstock provides a swing arm for the greeting.

The Peekaboo Peach cardstock (3 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″) opens to reveal the inside of the card.  The Berry Burst strip is sandwiched between the folded Peekaboo Peach cardstock and a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.

The designer paper measures 3″ x 5 1/2″, and the inner Whisper White piece measures 3″ x 5 1/4″.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This card is great for Valentine’s Day, or anytime!  I used two patterns from the Bubbles & Fizz designer paper, one of the products you can choose to receive for free with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration.  The Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon is another of the Sale-a-bration free choices – it comes in a three pack with Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay Shimmer Ribbons.

Petal Palette

This is a CASE of the make-n-take Martha Helwig brought to our Team Meeting last month.  I just love how the simple elements go together to make a sweet card!  The stamps and framelits are from the Petal Palette bundle, and the designer paper is from the coordinating Petal Passion collection.

Hidden Message Slider

Here’s a fun way to get a different look from the Sliding Door Framelits.  I used paper and stamps from the Picture Perfect Party Suite to create an interactive card using the track and method presented by the Barn Door Bundle.

Here’s a look at the card with the sliding door in its “closed” position.

The front panel slides to reveal a message.  I mounted the slider assembly on a regular card base (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″).

The procedure to make the slider is very similar to the barn door assembly, and I have included complete instructions in the video below.  If you are receiving this post in an email, please click here for the video.

Bermuda Bay 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″

Bermuda Bay 4″ x 4 3/4″

Berry Burst 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″

Designer Paper 3 1/4″ x 4″

Whisper White Insert 4″ x 5 1/4″

Whisper White 1 1/2″ x 2 1/4″

Lemon Lime Twist 1 5/8″ x 2 3/8″ and 3/4″ strip

Blossoming Basket

I normally don’t embrace coloring…or fussy-cutting.  However, I was determined to CASE a card, and I had some extra time – so I did both.  It was a pleasant reminder of how relaxing it is to color, and the fussy-cutting did not take long at all.

Of course, the right tools always help – Stampin’ Blends provide the crisp color here.  For the flowers, I used the Calypso Coral shades on the Rich Razzleberry card, and I used the Daffodil Delight shades on the Pumpkin Pie card.  The cute stitched edge to the left of the textured piece is provided by our Stitched-Edge Ribbon, available in four colors including Razzleberry and Pumpkin.

Stampin’ Up! has new Sale-a-bration options coming out next week (available February 16).  The stamps and the embossing folder I used on these cards are from the new choices.

 See the Daffodil Delight card on the “Blossoming Basket” page?  That’s the card I was CASE-ing.  Fussy-cutting the basket allows more of the basket-weave texture to show through.  Definitely worth it!

Hold on to Hope Class To Go

My February Class To Go uses the “Hold on to Hope” bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  This stamps and framelits in this bundle are great for encouragement as well as celebrating faith.  It is also an excellent bundle for Easter.

You’ll make six cards with the bundle, and I have a new option for purchasing – you can purchase the bundle within your own order at my online store, and I will send you the class materials separately.  This allows you to shop for other items that you may need, and you can choose any Sale-a-bration item, when applicable.

Simply place your order by February 16, and email me at buckeyeinklingsorders@gmail.com to let me know that you want the class.  If your order is under $150, please use Hostess Code EMY2BK6A – over $150, please take your own Stampin’ Rewards.  Either way, I will cover the shipping cost to get the card materials to you!

(Please note that orders placed under other group or club codes are not eligible for Class To Go materials, as those benefits are used elsewhere.)

-OR-

You can also order this class by my traditional method – email me at buckeyeinklingsorders@gmail.com for a Paypal invoice, and specify Wood or Clear Mount and your choice of SAB stamp sets.

The Paypal invoice is based on the retail price of the bundle with tax and shipping for me to receive the materials.  I have also added a $7.00 priority mail cost for shipping to you once I have added the class materials.  There is no additional cost for the card materials and instructions.

Hold on to Hope Class To Go (Wood Mount)     $66.00

Hold on to Hope Class To Go (Clear Mount)     $57.00

 

Here’s what’s included:

Hold on to Hope Stamp Set

Cross of Hope Framelits Dies

Materials to make six cards, pre-cut, scored, and embossed as necessary

Six Envelopes

SAB stamp set of your choice

Illustrated instructions with dimensions

You will need:

Assorted Ink Pads (I used Smoky Slate, Powder Pink, Sahara Sand, Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig, and Archival Black)

Big Shot

Adhesives

This is one of those bundles that will become a “keeper” in my collection.  It is perfect for cards that are inspiring, encouraging, and celebratory.  I think you will love it too!

Sweet Soiree

Today, I want to showcase the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper and Embellishment Kit.  I can’t emphasize enough how these items can make your cards extra-special…without extra work!!

The first card is an exact CASE of a card my upline Mindy Gray sent to me – I love how it relies on the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper.  The cake itself is fussy-cut from one of the sheets in the pack, and the Silver Foil pedestal is the only element brought in from the bundle.

These also use fussy-cut cakes, and I have added in a precut vellum image from the Embellishment Kit on each card.  The Flirty Flamingo tag is cut with one of the framelits from the bundle.

 

This is a CASE of a card in our 2018 Occasions Catalog.  It uses elements from the Embellishment Kit primarily, with just a little stamping.

 These cakes are also from the Embellishment Kit, as are the numbers, vellum cutouts and flower.  I have added a Silver Foil pedestal and Old Olive leaves cut with thinlits in the bundle.  Again, though, you can see that the designer paper and kit elements are the focal point.
