Stampin’ Up! Make a Medallion Note Card

Have you seen the new 2017 Sale-a-bration Make a Stampin' Up! Make a Medallion Card made with 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Make a Medallion Stamp Set by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comMedallion Stamp Set? I used it to make a quick Stampin’ Up! Make a Medallion Note Card.

The first two decisions were made for my simple handmade card design – the stamp set (Make a Medallion), size (5″ x 3-1/2″) and color of card base (Crumb Cake).

The Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes spoil you with the cards already cut-to-size and scored.  Did you know the smallest size card, or postcard, you can mail is 3-1/2″ x 5″?

The next decision to make was the colors. I wanted to highlight the 2015-2017 In Colors to give my followers the heads up to order ink refills and stock up on cardstock because they will soon on the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Retiring Accessories List. When that happens (mid to late April), they will become only while supplies last.

Stampin' Up! Make a Medallion Stamp Set from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Special

So, I looked through my 2015-2017 In Color Combinations e-book with ten 3-color combinations for each of the five In Colors (50 combos total!). I looked for one that used Crumb Cake for one of the three colors and chose Cucumber Crush / Chocolate Chip / Crumb Cake.

Stampin' Up! Make a Medallion Card made with 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Make a Medallion Stamp Set by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com

Stampin’ Up! did something pretty cool. The Make a Medallion Stamp Set was designed to coordinate with the Layering Circles Framelits. You can see three of the circle dies used on my simple hand stamped card. Had I chosen to also die-cut the largest circle, it would have coordinated with one of the scallop circle dies. As I just wrote, pretty cool.

The most obvious is the Reverse Words Stamp Set. The word is the negative image, meaning the word is recessed into the rubber stamp and will not take ink. The word will remain the same color as the cardstock (Sweet Sugarplum) with the watercolor image surrounding it the color used to stamp it. Or, in the case of my clean and simple handmade card, the white embossed color.

The second new 2017 Sale-a-bration item is the 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack. It comes in three colors – Sweet Sugarplum (above), Mint Macaron

Delicate and Pretty Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Birthday Card

By simply hand trimming the lotus Stampin' Up! Avant Garden and Delicate Details Stamp Sets from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Special www.stampingsmiles.comflower and three leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Stamp Set, you can make a delicate and pretty Avant Garden birthday card.

When you hand trim elements for your handstamped greeting cards, do you trim right up to the image or leave a small border around the image?

It seems that most of the time I leave a small border. It makes the handtrimmed piece or pieces stand out. If you don’t have a decent pair of scissors for handtrimming, I highly recommend the Paper Snips. Stampin’ Up! has been carrying them for at least 12 years. That tells you they are a popular purchase year after year. That’s because they are easy to hold while doing fine, detail cutting.

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden and Delicate Details Sale-a-bration Stamp Sets www.stampingsmiles.com

A Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added to one leaf. Doesn’t it look like a dew drop? It’s those small touches that make a hand stamped card extra special.

The handtrimmed lotus flower is resting upon lace trim. It’s one of the five lace borders from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Details Stamp Set. You can have lace in any color with this 2017 Sale-a-bration item!

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden Delicate Details Stamp Sets 2017 Stampin' Up!

What do you do when you want a greeting that isn’t available in a stamp? Stamp your own! I considered creating one on the computer but knew I’d spend at least an hour getting the spacing just right. Instead, I grabbed my Stampin’ Up! Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Mix – You’re Grate Valentine Treat!

Saying Happy Valentine’s Day with a cute idea Stampin' Up! Perfect Mix Stamp Setusing the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Mix Stamp Set because “You’re Grate!”

It was years ago I purchased the measuring cup (see that yummy Valentine treat here) and grater from Dollar Tree to use for Valentine treat ideas. It was like Stampin’ Up! read my mind when they designed the Perfect Mix Stamp Set. The stamp with the measuring spoons reads “no one measures up to you.” The stamp with the grater reads, you guessed it, “you’re grate!”

 

 

What’s fun about Dollar Tree is that everything in the store is just a dollar. That makes it easy and inexpensive to make cute Valentine’s Day treats.

Betty Crocker Grater

The container to catch what has been grated is clear. Perfect to show off the treat inside. I filled it with conversation hearts.

Stampin' Up! Perfect Mix Stamp Set

It took less than a 7 ounce bag of conversation hearts to fill the holder. It would be a good idea to use a little tape to make sure it holds in place before giving it away. The candy is heavier than what would be grated into it.

Stampin' Up! Perfect Mix Stamp Set

The tag was die-cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies out of Basic Black Cardstock. The grater was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, colored with Watercolor Pencils, blended the color with Blender Pens, trimmed and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

“You’re grate!” was embossed in white. The black tag looks sharp with the red and silver of the grater finished off with a silver bow from the 2017 Sale-a-bration 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack.

The 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack is one of the FREE with $50 purchase items from which you can choose during the Sale-a-bration promotion that runs through March 31, 2017.

Stampin’ Up! Big on Birthdays Card

If you make birthday cards for those who like Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays Stamp Setflowers, take a look at my hand stamped birthday card made with the new the Big on Birthdays Stamp Set from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog.

The flowers crowning the big Happy Birthday were watercolored with Mint Macaron and Wisteria Wonder. Then a few more were stamped, hand-trimmed and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The card was quite pretty before adding the individual popped-up flowers, but they sure did enhance my handmade card.

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays Stamp Set

My color combination started with the desire to use Mint Macaron. After sitting there for a few moments trying to decide on what other colors to use, I consulted my 2015-2017 In Color Combinations e-book. It has ten 3-color combinations for each of the five 2015-2017 In Colors for a total of 50 custom color combinations. I chose the Mint Macaron / Wisteria Wonder / Soft Suede combination. Simply perfect for how I had my card pictured in my mind. You can order the fifty 3-color combinations e-book here if you’d like to have this color resource too.

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays Stamp SetThe flowers were watercolored in Wisteria Wonder without the Soft Suede outline bleeding. Do you know how I managed that? Easy. I embossed the Soft Suede outline image first. You will find a video demonstrating the technique here.
