Going for the Gold with the GDP!

This week the Global Design Project#109 is hosting a Color Challenge.  Here it is:

Global Design Project #109

And here is my entry:Deck the Halls for the GDP

The Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder Framelits dies make making Christmas cards a snap! (And you can bundle and save 10%!)  The perfectly coordinating images and intricately detailed dies make it look like I’ve spent hours on this card, but it was easy enough to mass produce a lot of these cards in a short time period.  The Merry Music DSP makes for a nice background and the gold doilies add the right amount of bling with over-doing it.  (The Merry Music DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale going on thru October 31st.)

Want to know a little secret?  I actually designed this card last week for my #WorldCardMakingDay class.  As I sat down to write this post, I saw the GDP announced their Color Challenge and since I hadn’t shared this project yet, and the colors just fit this color challenge exactly, well, if the shoe fits….   Sometimes things just fall into place perfectly.

I highly recommend this product suite!  If you can only get 1 bundle or suite from the Holiday catalog, it would be a tough choice between this Merry Little Christmas product suite and the Quilted Christmas product suite.  Both have an awesome stamp set and coordinating framelit dies that can be used for more than just Christmas, and both have a complimentary array of embellishments.  If you missed my earlier posts showing the Quilted Christmas product suite, please click here and here.

Take a few minutes to head over to the Global Design Project to see all the awesome designs.

Here is another look at my card, and the supply list you’ll need to recreate this card yourself.  Click Here to shop my online store for any supplies.  Deck the Halls for the GDP

Pals Blog Hop – Wicked Folds


Welcome to the Pals October 2017 Blog Hop featuring some very “Wicked Folds”. Thank you so much for joining us today. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Stampin’ Pretty Pals treat you with their wickedly folded projects. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

For my project I chose to do a Double Z-Fold technique.

SweaterDeer Closed

And here it is open:

Sweater Deer Double Z Fold

Watch this video to see the Double Z Fold card in action:

My card is a monochromatic card in Cherry  Cobbler and Whisper White with a touch of silver for some ‘bling’. The buck in the Winter Sweater just makes me laugh every time I see him!  This image is from the Merry Patterns stamp set that is available for FREE during the Merry Patterns Host Promotion thru Oct. 31st.  CLICK HERE to learn more about the Merry Patterns Host Promotion CLICK HERE to download the Merry Patterns Promotion flyer.  Merry Patterns, argyle sweater on deer, tis the season, candles

I thought he would be perfect with a piece of card stock embossed with the Cable Knit  TIEF.  The tiny deer pattern on the DSP from the *Be Merry DSP just repeats the deer theme we have going on.  A tiny sliver of 1/8″ silver ribbon and the Rhinestone Jewels are the perfect accents.

*This Paper is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Sale going on now.

Of course, I couldn’t make a card like this without my Stampin’ Trimmer.  Of all the paper trimmers I’ve owned over the years, the Stampin’ Trimmer by Stampin’ Up ! is hands down the best!

A Double Z-Fold card is really easy to make.  Start with your 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of card stock scored & folded in half to make a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base.  Then just take the front  flap of the card and fold it in half back onto itself.  You will then have a piece of cardstock, when laid flat, that is scored at 2-1/8″and  4-1/4″.  When scored and folded this will be a Z-fold.

The part of the card that makes the double Z is just another piece of card stock 8-1/2″ scored at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″.  The height of this piece should be less than 5-1/2″  but it can be any size.  For this card, the height is 4″.   Score and fold this piece to make another Z.  The trick comes in how you adhere the pieces.  The card base, from left to right, has the 2 small panels and 1 large panel.  The Z-fold piece is adhered to the card base with the 1 large panel on the left and the 2 small panels on the right.

To see another card I made with the Double Z- Fold, click here.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on November 8, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don’t forget to leave us a comment.  We love to hear what you have to say! 

If you need any supplies to make a card like this, please shop my online store here  or click on any of the product links above.  Please use Host Code XTHACC4H if your order is less than $150.  If your order is $150 -$299.99 you will earn Stampin’ Rewards.  If your order is $300 or more, you will earn Stampin’ Rewards AND the free Merry Patterns stamp set!  CLICK HERE to learn all about Stampin’ Rewards.

TIP:  I Love Fast Fuse, but it wasn’t always that way!  This super strong adhesive in not just SNAIL on steriods!

Let’s Celebrate…50!

A big milestone birthday is always a reason to celebrate!  And a chance to play with new InColors that just arrived is also a reason to celebrate.  Combine the 2 together, and fun, fun, fun!

This card features the new color Berry Burst.  It’s a fun, bold and vibrant shade that’s not really pink but not purple either.  It’s a fun trendy color and it plays so well with Rich Razzleberry here for the balloons.  I used these colors as an accent against black and silver (after all it is a 50 birthday!).  Let's Celebrate 50!

You’ll notice that I’m using a number of retiring products along with the new In Color.  This time of year, I like to combine the old and the new.  After the new catalog makes its debut June 1st, I’ll stop showing the retiring product.  I like to only show you what you can buy so if you want to recreate my projects you can!

The Number of Years stamp set and Large Number Framelits are carrying over (I die cut the number 50 from Silver Foil sheets).  The Confetti TIEF and the Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon PopUp Thinlits dies are being retired.  If you want either of these items; you need to shop my store NOW!  They are only available while supplies last.

The recipient of this card was Sue, my husband’s admin assistant at work.  Her husband threw her a surprise party, and boy, was she surprised!  She was totally caught off guard.  After she regained her composure, she had a really good time.  And so did we!

Well, I have more InColors to show you, and more playing around with Daisy Delight and Color Theory.  Come back again soon.

Want to have new products NOW?

As a demonstrator, my favorite perk is that I get to see, and order, the new products before anyone else.  I’ve been enjoying the new 2017-19 In Colors, and the many stamp sets, embellishments, etc. that I already have.    Do you Want to have new products NOW? Well, you can get your hands on a new Product Suite beginning today!

The Eastern Palace Suite is a stamp set (21 piece photopolymer) with rich, deep colors and lots of images that layer together.  The coordinating Eastern Medallions Thinlits dies take layering to a new level!  The gold vinyl stickers add an element of richness and opulence to your projects like nothing you’ve seen before! Eastern Palace Suite,

You have two packages to choose from; one has the thinlit dies and one does not.  You’ll also get 3 of the 5 new InColors in each bundle, AND the brand new Very Vanilla notecards, and the Very Vanilla thick cardstock in the Premier Bundle

You can download a PDF flyer of the two product bundles you can order beginning today, and the FREE gift you’ll get with each bundle.

Wow!  In all the years I’ve been with Stampin’ UP! I’ve NEVER seen them offer a pre-order to customers (this is a perk normally reserved for demonstrators) or offer the new In Colors to customers before the catalog release date!  So consider yourself privileged to be offered such a promotion!

First,  decide if you want the Eastern Palace Starter Bundle

or the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle I love the rich, deep colors and layering options of the Eastern Palace Suite

Then, go to my online store, and place your order!  Easy Peasy!  Don’t forget to use the May host code CM4QQEWG.

I hope that you all get the Premier bundle that includes the thinlits dies.  I can’t even begin to describe how awesome these dies are, you really need to see them for yourself.  When you purchase the the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle thru me AND use the May Host Code CM4QQEWG EMAIL ME and tell me that you’ve ordered the Premier Bundle and I’ll send you and 2017-19 In Color cardstock and DSP swatch booklet as my FREE GIFT to you!

So get your new products now.  It’s like getting all the perks of being a demonstrator, without actually being a demonstrator!  It may just cause you to want to become a demonstrator so you can keep getting those perks!  If you do decide to go that route, you’ll be in good company when you join my team!

Meet Filomena the Flying Pig!

I’ve been in love with “This Little Piggy” this new stamp set that will be available June 1st.  I chose to name each of the 4 pigs in this stamp set.  I think Filomena is the perfect name for a flying pig.  So without any further adieu, please meet Filomena the Flying Pig!

This LIttle Piggy

If you missed my first blog post using this new stamp set, you can see that here.  That card was my most pinned item during the month of April!

When I saw the sketch for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge, I knew I had to use This Little Piggy again, with Filomena the flying pig.  Here’s the sketch that inspired this card.

CAS(E) this Sketch! 219You can visit the sketch challenge to see how other’s used this sketch  here.

She’s just adorable, isn’t she? Here’s a close-up of her – she looks so pleased with herself that she’s flying!  She believed she could, so she put on her wings, and so she did!

Filomenia the Flying Pig

There are two other pigs that you haven’t met you.  I hope to show them to you soon.   In the meantime, please enjoy Daisy and Filomena.  And make room in your craft room for Daisy, Filomena and two others to move in.  They’ll be packed and ready on June 1st!

See you soon.

Nancy
