Hexagon Punch Shaker Cards: Chalk Talk Banners

Hexagon Punch Shaker Card Tutorial: with the Chalk Talk Framelits and stamps -- from LovenStamps

Last month I posted a photo tutorial for these Sixed-Sided Sampler Shaker Cards. Having the left-over rubber scraps from your stamp sets is a fun perk with lots of technique possibilities!

So be sure to SAVE YOUR RUBBER SCRAPS if you think you’ll want to make a shaker card out of a certain stamp set.  Heads up — you don’t need to save them all :) but a few here and there might be worthwhile!

Sweet Dreams: A This & That Swap Embellishment

Dress Up Framelits: sleepover fun embellishment for a This & That Journal

It’s getting close to that exciting time of year, when stampers from all over North America gather in Salt Lake City for the annual Stampin’ Up! Convention!!  This year we have a huge number of demonstrators from my “family” attending — 60 of us! I’m really looking forward to the adventure, especially since many of the demonstrators on my team live all over the country and we only get to see each other in person at Convention.

Each year I have the best of intentions for making my Convention scrapbook as SOON as I get home… but well, you know how that’s likely to go, especially when I come home with 100’s of ideas that I can’t wait to try out in my stamp room!

So THIS year, I’ve figured out a new plan!  I’m going to make my scrapbook WHILE I’m AT Convention!  And thankfully, Stampin’ Up! has the perfect product line for me — the This & That Journal product suite! (check out the Epic Day line)

See how it works?  It’s a journal where you collect “this & that” as you’re going along.  Perfect for capturing the little adventures that you don’t want to forget — or adding in plane ticket stubs, a lunch ticket from Convention, etc — all the things we save “in case” we want to scrapbook them.  Except with This & That journal, they DO get scrapbooked!

So are you wondering about the little “sweet dreams” tag?  It’s got a nightie and a sleep mask, in case you didn’t catch that :)  With my demonstrator family, I’m swapping embellishments for This & That journals!  Cool idea, right?  So I make up 12 of the same embellishment, trade them with other demonstrators and get back 12 new titles or journal embellishments — all ready to go into my Convention 2013 This & That Journal.

My mom & me at Convention 6 years ago

The nightie swap is for a hotel page — since it’s basically like one big slumber party. I designed it for my mom to swap. She’s also a demonstrator and celebrating 10 years this year.  This is actually our 10th Convention together!

Okay, and here’s for the fun product tip.  You can expand your wardrobe with the Dress Up Framelits Dies (see them online) by using your 3/4″ Circle Punch (see it online)!

Dress Up Framelits Idea - expand your wardrobe!

What gal doesn’t need more choices to wear??

If you’re looking for more wardrobe choices, be sure to check out more Dress Up Framelits project ideas on my blog.

Last little hints from my sample — I used My Digital Studio and the Fabulous Phrases digital brush set to print out the words at the right size.  And did you catch my super-favorite Chalk Talk stamp & Framelit as the background?

Chalk Talk Framelits: Something Special

Chalk Talk stamp set and framelits: Something Special Banner

Did you catch my Video Tutorial about the new Chalk Talk Framelits and the new Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot? Be sure to check it out for tips and to see the new platform in action!

Here’s another fun sample with the Chalk Talk stamp set and Framelits Bundle (see it online – 132730).  This stamp is a perfect one for highlighting a single word.  Just stamp the tag twice – once in Strawberry Slush (cut out the banner “something”) and again in Coastal Cabana.  Mount the Strawberry Slush banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the Coastal Cabana stamped tag and you’re set!

Polished Stone Technique Tutorial: Shimmery White

Polished Stone Technique Tutorial: with Chalk Talk and Framelits

If you’re a die-hard stamper, then you probably know the Polished Stone Technique already.  I have good news for you!  Shimmery White Card Stock works perfectly for Polished Stone.  I love the way the shimmer comes up through the ink to make the marble look glimmery…pretending for a moment that ‘glimmery’ is actually a word.

And if you’re new to Polished Stone, then I have a treat for you, too!  I have 3 techniques plus a bonus included in my Video Tutorial this morning:

  • Polished Stone Technique Tutorial
  • NEW Stretch Ruffle Ribbon trick for medallions
  • NEW Magnetic Platform for Big Shot (see it in action!)
  • +Bonus – Layered Tags

I hadn’t posted a video in a little while, so I had to pack a bunch of ideas in for you :)

If you have trouble with the video below, use this link to view directly.

Simple Supply List for the card:

  • Chalk Talk stamp set and Framelits Bundle: (see it online – 132730)
  • New In Color Cards for Color Coach (see it online – 130120)
  • 3/8″ Stretch Ruffle Trim in Coastal Cabana (see it online – 130024)

New Ruffle Stretch Trim: So Sweet for Summer

New Stretch Ruffle Trim: it's sweet for summer

Sometimes there’s a fun embellishment that never makes it way off my stamping table — it just sits here by my side because I use it just about every time I stamp.  Right now, it’s the new In Color Ruffle Stretch Trim (see it online with the In Colors).

Okay, truth be told, my stamping table is a mess, so there are quite a few things that never make it to the shelf!  But the Ruffle Stretch Trim (in all 5 new In Colors) is on TOP of my pile of goodies :)

This card with the new Chalk Talk stamp set and the coordinating Framelits (see it online – 132730) also features the new In Color Marker set (get them with my June Stamps in the Mail “Try It” Kit).

I hope you’re loving the new catalog as much as I am!  And don’t worry, I’ll eventually post something that’s not from the Chalk Talk set… I’m just loving it too much right now!

Chalk Talk & Label Love: Summer Birthday Idea

Chalk Talk & Label Love: perfect with new In Colors for a summer birthday

Summertime: ice cream at the park… warm evenings on the patio… playing with chalk on the driveway… They all come together to paint a picture, and the new In Colors for 2013-2015 are a perfect fit!

This card features several new catalog bundles that I’m loving:

  • Chalk Talk Stamps & Framelits Bundle (see it online – 132730) – 15% off when you order them together!
  • Label Love Stamps & Artisan Label Punch Bundle (see it online – 132722) – also 15% off as a bundle
  • New 2013-2015 In Color Card Stock & Pad Kit (see it online – 131204) – card stock is free with the set of 5 new color pads

Gotta love when Stampin’ Up! puts these items together for us at a discount :)

These are actually my swap cards for our demonstrator event this Friday night – hope everyone will like them!  If you’d like to learn more about what it means to be a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up!, I’d love to answer your questions.  And you’re welcome to join me and my LovenStampfuls team on Friday in Champaign, IL for our event! Just drop me an email for details.

Mosaic Madness: Ideas with Chalk Talk

Have you been poring over the new catalog?? Working on your Wish List? I’m loving the new Chalk Talk stamp set (see it online – 130249).  I can’t wait for the matching Framelits to arrive, so that I can play with them, too.  In the meantime, I loved the way the ornate frame worked as a background image, directly on my card layer.

It’s a great fit with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (see it online -129984).

And yum!!  New In Colors!! The background of this card is Strawberry Slush…it’s so much fun to use on projects.
