What a GREAT weekend I had! This was the weekend for our 8th Annual Spring Into Stamping demonstrator training event. SO much fun to be had when demonstrators gather together!
The day was filled to the brim with training tips (thank you to the fabulous Laura Barto for sharing class ideas), great Make N Take projects, gorgeous demonstrations and a chance to gather with friends from around the country.
I even ran a game show – Family Feud, Stampin’ Style!
The demonstrator fair was a big hit – with stations set up to learn about stamping techniques or other topics like using My Digital Studio (that’s me behind the table).
And my friend and fellow LovenStampfuls demonstrator Linda Yearsley showed a WONDERFUL technique called Puzzle Piece Resist. I wrote up a summary with pictures from her booth here. Definitely watch my blog for more ideas with this technique – I’m loving it!
And of course it’s hardly a day of stamping when there aren’t door prizes — free stamps! So much excitement, it’s hard to contain
It was a fabulous day — with MANY talented demonstrators helping to put it all together. About 30% of the demonstrators attending helped in one way or another — assembling Make N Take packets, sharing a stamping technique, organizing our Shoebox Swap, etc.
A big thank you to ALL who helped us put the day together, and to all who attended! I’m looking forward to next year’s Spring Into Stamping already!
I love this guy! Here’s a gorgeous majestic buck with antlers curling around in elegant designs. Ah, the beauty. And then we go and hang ornaments on him. Seems like a funny way to treat a deer, but hey, it’s an effective design!
There are a few tips for this Christmas Deer card (see the set online), with a fun fold design using the Labels Collection Framelits (see them online). The card layout is based on one by Connie Fitzgerald.
For the deer background: Cut a piece of scrap paper one framelit smaller than the shape. Use it as a mask and use a Color Spritzer (new – see them online) to add a light background shading. I mixed one drop of Early Espresso Ink Refill with rubbing alcohol for the color here.
For the Early Espresso layer: Use a textured embossing folder (see them online) with the new Core’dinations Card Stock (love this stuff! — see colors online), then sand to reveal the lighter core color.
This is one of the cards from my Christmas Card Stamp A Stack last night — if you missed it, be sure to sign up for the October session! (details here online)
Stamps: Christmas Deer; Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler; Paper: Early Espresso Core’dinations Card Stock, Champagne Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla; Accessories: Big Shot, Labels Collection Framelits, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Color Spritzer Tool
Need a quick birthday idea? Here’s a fun card using the Big Shot for the shape and the background, and a sweet stamp set for the design: Moving Forward (see it online).
The Moving Forward set is a great all-occasion stamp set, plus when you purchase it, Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date, Stampin’ Up! has donated well over $1 million to RMHC from the sale of a special stamp set each year.
Ronald even attended the Stampin’ Up! Convention one year to help kick off the sponsorship program!
Stamps: Moving Forward; Inks: Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo; Paper: 2011-2013 In Color Patterns Designer Series Paper, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder; Big Shot, Argyle Textured Embossing Folder, Labels Collection Framelits
I’m in love with the new Owl Occasions stamp set from the Holiday Collection Catalog (browse it online).
I just can’t get over the cute-factor on the little owl! Plus the stamp set includes birthday and Christmas accessories, and it’s perfect for Halloween.
Actually, I had so much fun creating with this set that I picked it for my new Stamps in the Mail Club Round — beginning this month. (learn more about Stamps in the Mail)
Stamps in the Mail Club is a great way to build your stamping supplies and actually USE them! Since each month you’ll get stamps, inks & pre-cut projects ready-to-stamp, it’s easy to pull out your scissors and adhesive and get crafting.
You can still sign up for the August Stamps in the Mail Club - here are the projects you’ll be making with your kit this month.
During the last night of Convention, we gather as a group to share pizzas from The Pie in Salt Lake City – if you haven’t had their pizza before, it’s quite the experience. Their large pizzas are absolutely humongous!
We also bring all the swap cards we’ve received during the week and lay them out on tables so that everyone can see all the fabulous ideas that they might like to take home with them, even if they didn’t receive that particular swap card.
There are always tons of fun ideas to see, and I usually take another 100+ photos to bring home and have for future card ideas!
Here are a few of my favorites – and since I don’t have the swaps, I don’t have names to give credit to the artists. If you recognize a card, please leave me a comment so I can give credit! Here’s a fun card using Designer Paper strips to make a patchwork quilt (check out the directions on my blog):
Here’s another great idea for using up Designer Series Paper scraps – love this banner!! Thanks to Dee Tollakson for sharing this card!
Here’s a card using the Moving Forward stamp set (see it online). This set is special because when you purchase it, $3 from your purchase goes to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Stampin’ Up! has donated over $1 million to RMHC through the sales of the yearly RMCH stamp sets! Thanks to Sarah Sagert (Artisan Award Winner!) for sharing her card:
Here’s another card with the same Moving Forward stamp set, by Artisan Award Winner Heather Summers:

Who doesn’t love chocolate?! And even better, chocolate wrapped in this sweet World Spectacular Designer Series Paper (see it online) and with a tag from the A Cherry On Top stamp set (see it online)?
This is a great hostess stamp set, available when your party reaches $150 or when you place an online order of $150 or more. For Online orders, the benefits are called “Stampin’ Rewards”. Be sure to order through my website so you get these rewards with your order.
Like the colors on the World Spectacular paper? They’re great for projects for guys — nice masculine colors!
Last month I was supposed to attend a Girl Scout awards night for leaders. I volunteered to bring along flowers for the awards recipients, complete with stamped tags celebrating everyone’s achievements. I made about 15 bouquets to hand out at the event.
I have to say that I’m completely addicted to the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the coordinating Labels Collection Framelits (see them online). In fact, here are more sample ideas on my blog, including a Video Tutorial. I was so happy when they all came out in the New Catalog on June 1st!
Each little bouquet of a rose, baby’s breath and some greenery was tied with a piece of coordinating ribbon (since Stampin’ Up! has great ribbon colors to match the Card Stocks and Inks — see online).
Here’s a shot of one of the bouquets (yes, sorry it’s laid out on my kitchen floor!):
So next time you have an event — think about how your stamping supplies can come in handy for making it special!
My son has been asking for weeks if we could get corn on the cob. And I’d been putting him off, saying that it’s just too early — that’s a summer treat. But it’s official, summer must be here, since we had our first corn on the cob of the season this week. It was yummy, too! I’ll admit, I wasn’t too hopeful.
But it gives me one more reason to be thankful for stamping. I can make the Mouthwatering cherries perfectly delicious EVERY time — in any season! Plus with the new Scented Stampin’ Emboss Powder (see it online in Cherry), they even SMELL yummy.
There are a lot of fun tricks on this card:
- Make the background stand out with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder (see some other ideas for this folder)
- The cherries from the Mouthwatering stamp set (see it online) are colored using the Marker to Stamp Technique to get two colors on one image
- To add the scented embossing powder (yum, cherry!) to the stem, I used my Versamarker (see it online). It’s like Versamark ink, but in pen form, so you can add it just where you want the embossing powder to stick.
- Glittery Cherries: there’s always room for glitter! The red liquid glitter comes in a bottle: Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (see it online)
- The brad at the end of the banner is one of the Jelly Bean Brads (see them online) in the Sweet Shop Product Suite (see some other Sweet Shop projects)
- The Labels Collection Framelits (see them online) lend a fun shape to the front panel — and I echoed it with another die-cut in the middle of the card.
- “You’re the BEST” comes from the Perfect Words hostess stamp set (see it online) — a set I find myself pulling out regularly!
Mmmm… more corn on the cob hopefully for us this week. And in the meantime, I’ll be stamping treats that make me think, “summer”!
Did you catch my Video Tutorial on the Apothecary Art stamp set and the Labels Collection Framelits last week? (check it out now) Well here’s a Quick Card that still uses the Apothecary Art stamp set (see it online), and the Framelits (see them online), but on an even simpler card background.
Isn’t the background color pretty on this card? The color is Blushing Bride from the 2010-2012 In Color Collection. Keep in mind that these 5 colors will be GONE after May 31st when the current catalog retires. If you want to have them in your collection, be sure to get them now!
