Mad for Plaid

I just love plaid, especially buffalo check plaid, so it’s fair to say that I am Mad for Plaid! I was so excited when I saw this cute little 1/4″ Black & White Gingham ribbon in the Holiday Mini Catalog!

BLACK & WHITE 1/4" (6.4 MM) GINGHAM RIBBON

Even more exciting is that the one of the patterns of paper in the Peaceful Prints DSP (available for FREE during SaleABration with a qualifying $50 order) has these adorable tiny Christmas Trees in a green and Black Buffalo Check. I just knew I had to combine this paper and ribbon!

Don’t you just love this? Doesn’t it make you Mad for Plaid also? So quick and easy, but oh so cute!

How it’s made

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 5-1/2″ x 6 and folded it in half to make a 5-1/2″ x 3″ card base. Then I added a piece of this cute DSP from the Peaceful Prints which was mounted onto a Garden Green layer. I wrapped a piece of the B&W 1/4″ Gingham ribbon around that panel and tied it in a bow, before adhering it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in Momento Black ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock and fussy cut with my Paper Snips before popping it up on mini Dimensionals.

Here’s another card I made with 2 little variations:

Looks almost the same, but this time I kept the whole sentiment rather than just cropping out part of it. And I tied the ribbon in a knot, rather than a bow. Then I tied on another scrap of ribbon to give more of a rustic look.

Which card do you like best? Leave me a comment below.

The Products

The Peaceful Prints DSP has so many pretty patterns: let’s take a look:

PEACEFUL PRINTS 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 CM) SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER
2 each of 6 double-sied 12″x12″ designer series paper in Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Real Red & Sahara Sand.

You can easily recreate this card yourself – and earning the Free Peaceful Prints DSP is easy! Here’s how:

  • Christmas to Remember Stamp Set #156300 – $22.00
  • Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon # 156485 2@ $7.00 – $14.00
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad # 132708 – $6.00
  • Basic Black 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock # 121045 – $8.75
    • Total $50.75 – you just earned 1 Free Sale-A-Bration item!

You can shop my online store, safely & securely 24-7, when you click on this link. And thanks for shopping with me!

Last Christmas, I made a really cute Gift Card Holder using the Buffalo Check and a Moose! You can check out that post here. I guess I really have been Mad for Plaid for quite some time!

Thanks for stopping by My Stampin S;pace today! I’m glad you’re here.

Sale-A-Bration Shopping Improvements 

As this year’s second Sale-A-Bration event approaches, we’d like to provide clarification about the checkout process.

To enhance the shopping experience, we’ve made improvements to the online store—specifically the process of selecting Sale-A-Bration items while shopping. When shopping the Online Store during Sale-a-Bration from 3 August to 30 September—the earned Sale-A-Bration items will be selected during the checkout process.

Once a customer has finished shopping and reviewed their cart, they will be alerted about their Sale-A-Bration earnings. When they proceed to checkout, they will then select their Sale-A-Bration items. They will not be able to continue the checkout process until they have either selected their free products, or acknowledged the option to proceed to checkout without free products. This was adjusted in order to prevent customer confusion and ensure customers pick their free products.

For more information about this change, please watch the walkthrough video below.

Some Hi-Lights from the 2021 January – June Catalog

If you are an active customer of mine, the new catalogs are on their way to you. Catalogs were mailed out on Dec. 9th and shipped via Bulk Mail but due to the delays the USPS is experiencing, I know many of you have not received your catalogs yet. But the 2021 Catalogs are here and you can view them online here on my blog until the mailman delivers yours to you.

Let me know what your favorite product/suite is from the 2021 January-June catalog!

the Best of the 2020 Holiday Catalog

January 4, 2021 is the LAST DAY to order from the 2020 Holiday Catalog so I thought I’d share a collection of my favorite Christmas projects that I made with products from the 2020 Holiday Catalog.

Red Foil Poinsettia
Tall & Skinny Poinsettia in Petal Pink and Gray
Rococo Rose Poinsettia
Lots of White Space
Sweet Gift Packaging

The Poinsettia Petals stamps and dies seem to be a clear winner here! Even thought the cards I made to mail out used the Nativity Bundle (and I don’t have any pictures!). The Peace and Joy stamp and die bundle came in 2nd. Just 1 day left to grab your favorite from the 2020 Holiday Catalog.

I showed you my favorite Christmas projects from the 2020 Holiday Catalog. Now it’s your turn! Leave me a comment with your favorite from all the projects I posted. Thanks!

Now that Christmas is Over…

So I was asked if I offer Gift Certificates by relatives of one of my customers, and of course my answer was YES! OF COURSE I OFFER GIFT CERTIFICATES! Not only do I offer Gift Certificates, but I usually make a special Gift Certificate Holder to go along with it. So I made 2 special gift certificate holders and I’d like to share one of them with you today. I waited until I knew my customer received her gift before revealing it publicly here. So here goes;

I love the Sentiments in the Peace & Joy Bundle – you can cut out skinny words and 2 sizes of backgrounds for each word, plus there are other words that you can combine to make all sorts of phrases. This bundle is retiring and may sell out so if you are considering it; now’s the time to grab it! The Gold Hoop Embellishments are a great way to make a focal point stand out even more so! The Heartwarming Hugs DSP is a great background for this card. If you enjoy fussy cutting, then you’ll have as much fun making this card as I did! The leaves and holly berries were cropped out with a quick snip from my paper snips!

You can shop my online store here to snag this bundle and the DSP before it’s gone.

The 2021 Jan-June mini catalog and the Jan-Feb 2021 Sale-A-Bration catalogs begin in just a few short days. If you haven’t gotten your catalogs in the mail as of yet, they will be available to view online right here on Jan 5th.

Merry Moose Gift Card Holder

I needed to make some gift card holders, and a card I had just made using the Merry Moose punch was in front of me, and it was the perfect inspiration! I used the elements from the card to make a Merry Moose Gift card holder. And it’s not just any gift card holder; it’s got some motion to it!

Don’t you just love our adorable Merry Moose? He is cropped out with the Moose punch. Both the Merry Moose stamp set and Moose punch are being retired! So if you want to get your hands on this guy, act fast!

All items that are being retired as part of our Giant Year End Close-Out Sale are while supplies last.

The Giant Year End Close-Out begins Dec 8th and ends Jan 4th or when supplies run out. Many items are deeply discounted, and we are anticipating that many items will sell out quickly. Click Here to shop my online store.

Did you watch me make this?

At the beginning of the month, I attended the Stampin’ UP! event “OnStage@Home”. Twice a year, I’ve been attending this conference at different cities around the Eastern part of the country, gathering with several hundred, or thousand, Stampin’ UP Demonstrators. But this year, OnStage was a Covid edition – at home! But I wasn’t going to let that stop me from gathering with a few of my closest demonstrator friends!

I hosted OnStage@Home at MyStampinSpace Studio where I have a large screen and projector so we were able to watch the virtual event on a big screen. We had swaps, makes & takes, games and prizes! Here are a few photos from that event:

One of the things I did after that event was to make a renewed commitment to making videos and doing Facebook Lives on a regular basis. If you follow my Facebook page, you’ll see that I’m now doing a Facebook Live on Wednesday nights at 7pm (EST). This past week, I shared some sneak peeks from the Jan-June 2021 and 2021 SaleABration catalogs. You can watch that video here.

I used some of the new products to make this card:

Painted Texture Art Gallery in Bermuda Bay

If you were watching me on FB Live, then you made this card with along with me. The background Paper is Oh So Ombre in Bermuda Bay and that great texture on the background is from a new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The flower and sentiment are from Art Gallery and the dies to cut it out are from Floral Gallery dies.

I made this card in Blackberry Bliss as well. Would you like to see that? Oh, just kidding, I already know the answer! Of course you would, so here it is:

Art Gallery Blackberry Bliss

Did you notice that gorgeous Painted Texture embossed background? Let’s take a close-up look:

Painted Texture 3D Embossing

So now that you’ve seen both, which color do you like better, Blackberry Bliss or Bermuda Bay? Let’s take a side by side look to compare, then leave me a comment with your preferece.

GET YOUR NEW CATALOGS!

If you are a regular customer of mine (meaning you have placed an order with me in the past 12 months) then I’ll be sending you a set of the new catalogs which should arrive to you around mid-December. If you aren’t, well let’s change that!

Online Extravaganza – Nov 24th only

1-Day only – November 24th

Anytime is a great time to place an order with me, but Nov 24th will be an even better time to place an order! Why? Because November 24th is our 1-Day Sale where you can get 10% off (almost) everything Stampin’ Up! has to offer!

Click Here to shop my online store. When you are shopping with me, please use Host Code KDW32Q9P. If you order is greater than $150 (before tax and shipping), then do not use the host code, but rather use those rewards for yourself.

Take advantage of the sale on the 24th – it’s not too often that Stampin’ Up runs a sale like this! And then you’ll be sure to get the new catalogs in the mail from me!

Thanks friends, and watch me on Facebook Live on Wednesday evenings!

I Finally got to play with this….

When I first saw the 2020 Holiday Catalog, several product suites caught my eye immediately. As I usually do, I made a wish list, then pared down my wish list into an A/B list. And although this product suite was one of my favorites, I pushed it to my B list. I did order this set and it came in a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t had time to pull it out and start using it until this weekend.

Oh my! I cannot convey just how much I am in love with this stamp set and dies and the little embellishments! And several of our specialty papers were just made to go with this set.

Do you want to know which product suite I’m talking about? Of course you do! It’s the Poinsettia Place Suite! And you’ll find it on pages 14, 15, & 16 of the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog.

Poinsettia Place Suite Collection # 155109

The Poinsettia Place Suite Collection includes stamps, dies, Designer Series Paper, Specialty vellum paper, ribbon and beaded pearls. You can order the whole collection with one order #155109 or individually.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the specialty flocked vellum so that’s what I grabbed to make my first card. Here it is:

I chose to make a tall and skinny card and I used Petal Pink cardstock to make my card base. I cut my cardstock to 8-1/2″ by 7-1/2″ and scored & folded it at 3-3/4″. Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 8″ x 3-1/2″. Then I cut a piece of Gray Granite CS to 7-3/4″ x 3-1/4″. I cut a piece of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper to the same size and adhered that to the Gray Granite CS using strategically placed glue dots so they won’t be visible.

(Insider’s Tip: I used the RULE OF 3’s in laying out this card. I used a layer of Whisper White CS, the Whisper White CS strip and white pearls – white was used 3x’s. Same with Petal Pink – the cardbase, the ink color and the Poinsettia. And I used 3 Silver Berry Sprigs. Using the RULE of 3’s creates a more pleasing layout.) Try this in your next card.

Now for the fun part! I used more Petal Pink cardstock to cut 3 flowers; 1 each of the large, medium and small. The cool things with these dies are that they EMBOSS and cut! I actually did not stamp these flowers at all; just die cut with the embossing lines. I used a small strip of Stampin Seal+ to adhere the 3 flowers together. The finishing touch was a Beaded Pearl.

Next I cropped 3 berry twigs from Silver Foil and adhered those behind the poinsettia. I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set onto a 3/4″ wide strip of Whisper White with Petal Pink ink. Then I cropped the end using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch to make the fancy end. Next, I used Stampin Seal to adhere this to the card front and then I used Stampin Seal+ to adhere the Poinsettia with the Silver Berries onto the other end of the sentiment strip.

Let’s take a closer look at the Poinsettia:

Can you see all the gorgeous textures here? The vein lines embossed in the Poinsettia Petals, the velvet flocking on the Vellum and the silvery finish on the berries. And those beaded pearls – aren’t they just the perfect finishing touch? I just added 3 more packages of these beaded pearls to an order I just placed! I want to make sure that I don’t run out of these beauties!
