Quiet Meadow Bundle

QUIET MEADOW Bundle is on page 110 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  The stamp set is bundled with a set of six natural looking flower dies, two butterfly dies and two tags. The quiet Stampin' Up! video below will show you two impressive cards made with this bundle. 


And, this is a card I made using this bundle for my BLENDER BRUSH CLASS 102.  I used one of the flower dies to create a mask and used the blender brush to add color around the flower mask.  I adhered the die cut to the card by rolling mini glue dots between my fingers and then added three of them to the back of the mask.  I rolled the dots to make them less sticky so that I could easily remove the die cut once I added the color.  What do you think?

Designer Series Paper SALE but ~

July is a favorite month for crafters because select Designer Series Papers are on sale all month at a 15% discount!  But one package (on page 171), PATTERN PARTY is not on sale.  Why?  Because it is part of Stampin' Up!'s reward program.  And, it is a great package of 12" x 12" paper for stampers and scrappers because it contains 48 sheets ~ 4 each of 12 double-sided designs that you can see here.

2021-07-08 (3)And, here's a cute card using some of the designs from this package of paper ~ this stamp set,     TURTLE FRIENDS, is bundled with a cute turtle punch ~ you can find it on page 56 in the annual catalog!  Who  wouldn't  enjoy  receiving  this  cute  card???198076623_10225959335549928_1419194570077912538_n (2)

Emboss Resist on the 4th!



HAPPY FOURTH!  This is an old Stampin' Up! stamp set ~ I don't remember what year and, unfortunately, I didn't mark the year on the box.  The title is JULY FOURTH and it is a keeper as we don't get many specific holiday sets (except Christmas) it seems.  The technique is 'Emboss Resist' and it is an easy one.  Stamp in VersaMark and cover the stamped images with clear embossing powder.  Set the images using your Heat Tool.  I used a Blending Brush and the Misty Moonlight stamp pad to add the background color over the embossing.  When you are satisfied with the depth of the color, wipe off the embossed images with a soft cloth to make them pop!  Have a great day!
