Painted Seasons Joins Well Said

Painted Seasons Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Just look at all those distinctive stamped images!  It's sort of jaw dropping to see the stamped image after my stamp is lifted.  The images are so detailed.  They almost look like they have been photographed, but I stamped them with my Painted Seasons stamp set!  Did I mention that the Painted Seasons bundle is a FREE Sale-a-Bration Gift with a qualifying purchase

Card Design Tips

I stamped larger center flower with Pineapple Punch Ink and my other two flowers with Highland Heather Ink.  The pinecones were inked with Soft Suede ink and the ferns with Soft Sea Foam Ink.  For a finishing touch, I stamped what I refer to as pixie dust with Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Someone suggest that that particular stamp was probably intended as for the flower center, but I like my pixie dust.

After I completed my stamping, I ran my card base through my Big Shot with my Subtles Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder for a neat textured finish.

My oval was cut with one of my favorite go to dies the Stitched Shapes and the "miss you" was cut with the fabulous Well Written dies.  Inside I stamped "Far apart but close at heart" with my coordinating Well Said stamp set.

For your convenience I've listed all of today's card supplies below.  Just click the picture to purchase the supplies that you need.

6 Stampin' Up! Guest Designer Projects

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Team Gifts
Hello Friends,

It's always fun to see what paper crafts your friends are making.  Every month, we offer a team swap.  It's always fun to see what the other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators on our team are making.  There's so much talent and so many creative projects.  Of course, there's also prizes and recognition for Sales and Promotions within our team.  You're going to love them projects made by this month's Guest Designers. 

Mini Pizza Box & Cards by Lori Ballitch

Lori Ballitch, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and team member from Mansfield, OH shared a project that is pure cuteness.  The little Mini Pizza Box wowed us enough, then we opened it up to find 5 adorable cards with matching envelopes.  Lori used the Amazing Life stamp set along with the Piece of Cake stamp set and the coordinating Cake Builder punch.  Love the little polka dots that she added to her Mini Pizza Boxes with a pencil eraser and ink.  Isn't she clever!

Leather Look Card by Carol Dennison

Carol Dennison, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and Team Member from Mansfield, Ohio had us all oohing and ahhing over her Suede or Leather look.  How perfect that she used the Let it Ride stamp set to compliment her leather.  It really does feel like suede or leather!  For another fun twist, her Fun Fold Card opens up to say, "Live as if someone left the gate open."

A Little Wild Sucker by Crystal Cleveland

Crystal Cleveland, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and team member from Marengo, Ohio always has some cute 3-D project to share.  Love the way she tucked her suckers in her folded Designer paper and topped them off with cute animals complete with googlie eyes.

Needlepoint Nook Card by Ann Bloomfield

Ann Bloomfield, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator from Chesterville, Ohio made a card that is so simple, yet so beautiful.  She let her Needlepoint Nook Designer Paper do the heavy lifting.  She lifted her color choices from the her gorgeous stitched look  paper.  She  stamped the sentiment with Poppy Parade ink and punched it all out with the  pretty label punch.


Tara Griffin, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and Team Member from Kissimmee, Florida dazzled us with her beautifully simple Wedding Card.  Petal Promenade Designer Paper beautifully compliments the lovely bride.  To add a bit of luster to her bride,  Tara brushed her gown with her Wink of Stella brush.  What a perfect finish.

Piggy Popcorn by Crystal Cleveland

I couldn't help but smile when Crystal Cleveland, a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and team member from Marengo, Ohio referred to her project as Piggy Popcorn.  She's always making special treats for her grandchildren.  Piggy Popcorn is popcorn drizzled with white chocolate and dotted with MnMs.  What a delightful salty sweet treat!  You may recognize the little pig from the This Little Piggy stamp set.
