Love How My Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Peacock Card Turned Out!

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock card designed by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.com with Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock Stamp SetPeacocks are majestic birds but not one I’ve been drawn to for card making. That was until I made this card with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set. Love how it turned out!

One of my sweet stampers asked if I had made a card with the new 2018 Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration stamp set and, if so, was it hard to use. It was time to find out.

It was easy to line up when first stamping the body then the feathers. It’s best to start with the darkest color followed by the lighter color because you can see through the lighter ink for effortless alignment.

A quick search of pictures of peacocks overwhelming showed the birds brilliant blue making Pacific Point Classic Stampin’ Pad ink be a great choice. The feathers were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist Classic Stampin’ Pad ink. The two vibrant colors are well suited.

The peacock, foliage, flowers and greetings used on my handmade greeting card are all included with stamp set.

Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit Cards!

Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit cards There are four quite lovely birthday card designs in the Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit. Three are definitely feminine birthday cards with lots of posies and one masculine birthday card.

The birthday balloons card is the masculine birthday card idea that will also work well for a children’s birthday card.

Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit cards

 

It’s unusual to find a guy card in the midst of girly girl cards but most welcome.

 

Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit cards

 

All of the card greetings are from the coordinating Stampin’ Up! Perennial Birthday Stamp Set. The only images stamped are the flower and leaves on the card above. The birthday cards are quick to put together with most of the artwork already done for you. 

 

Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit cards

 

What’s nice about you stamping the greetings is you can stamp any greeting you’d like on the sixteen cards included in the project kit. 

 

This is called a project kit and not a card kit because it includes more than cards. Once the cards have all been sent, you’ll still have the attractive card holder box.

 

Stampin' Up! Perennial Birthday Project Kit card box

 

And, most importantly, the card dividers that are also your perpetual birthday calendar.

This one clever and convenient idea to keep you and your birthday cards organized.

Seas the Day! Stampin’ Up! So Many Shells Card

Stampin' Up! So Many Shells card idea made with Stampin' Up! So Many Shells Stamp SetOne of the perks of attending a Stampin’ Up! Grand Vacation are the swaps. There are hundreds of demonstrators that make swaps, but we only make and receive 25. I was lucky enough to get this Stampin’ Up! So Many Shells card as one of my 25.

While it was awesome to receive a swap using the new sea shells stamp from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalog, what intrigued me was how the stamper used the Stampin’ Up! Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies on the front of her hand stamped card.

This is how we usually look at the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies used, such as my Floral Phrases invitations you can see here.

Stampin' Up! Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies

The stamper of this clean and simple So Many Shells card turned the largest die before die-cutting in the center of her card.

Love it! Peeking through the die-cut floral design is the colors from the reverse masking she used inside. Click here for a video I made demonstrating the reverse making technique.

Cutest Use of Confetti Hearts Border Punch Ever!

Stampin' Up! Botanical Blooms CardBefore I show you the cutest use I’ve seen using the retiring Stampin’ Up! Confetti Hearts Border Punch, let’s take a quick look at some other greeting card ideas using other retiring items.

The first hand stamped card idea with pink flowers and black center and leaves were die-cut with the retiring Stampin’ Up! Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. This was a swap from the Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean cruise. My thought was I really like how she used black. I wouldn’t have thought to use something other that green. But, wait. I just did! Did you see my Stampin’ Up! Flourishing Phrases sympathy card?

What I want to point out on this next card is the retiring Elegant Butterfly Punch and Bitty Butterfly Punch. As you see, they work well layered together. Individually they also make nice accents. The shape Elegant Butterfly Punch is more realistic, lending itself to be elegant. I will really miss both and encourage you to order both before they sell out if they are not yet part of your stamping collection.

Stampin' Up! Elegant Butterfly Punch

Okay, enough teasing. Here’s the swap card that uses the retiring Confetti Hearts Border Punch the cutest way I’ve ever seen. A slice of watermelon to love.

Stampin' Up! Reverse Words Stamp Set from 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Special Stampin' Up! Reverse Words card by Shelly Godby of www.stampingsmiles.comThe “cheers” greeting is in Flirty Flamingo because that’s the color of the cardstock. If you stamped it with Dapper Denim Classic Stampin’ Pad ink on Whisper White Cardstock, the greeting will be white surrounded by Dapper Denim ink. 

When stamping on colored cardstock, such as Flirty Flamingo, I recommend embossing the image. Colored ink on colored cardstock (other than the same color or sometimes black) often changes the ink color to something less than desired.

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!

It’s stamped on a die-cut circle made with the Stiched Shapes Framelits Dies. There is die-cutting stitching around the perimeter of each of the circles, ovals and square dies in the set.

Both the Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden and Delicate Details Stamp Sets are 2017 Sale-a-bration items . Choose one for FREE with every $50 in product purchases through March 31, 2017, only in my online store www.shopwithshelly.com!

My Celebrate Today Card reminds me . . .

. . . of four things I wanted to point out to you Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today Card Idearegarding the 2016 Stampin’ Up! Retiring List. Let’s have a look at my Celebrate Today card.

The first is the two different size clouds. The largest are from the Tree Builder Punch and the smaller from the Cupcake Builder Punch. It was exciting when we could so easily make clouds in two different sizes. But, not for long because the Cupcake Builder Punch is now 30% off and available only while supplies last! Also be sure to check out the retiring Cupcake Party Stamp Set that coordinates with the Cupcake Builder Punch. You’ll then have clouds, frosting and cupcakes from one punch.

The Celebrate Today Stamp Set (includes all the stamps used on this handstamped birthday card) is NOT retiring and neither are the Balloon Framelits Dies.  What is retiring is the Celebrate Today Bundle in which you save 15% off both products. The 15% off bundle price of only $36.50 is available only through May 31, 2016!

The last two are the two embellishments that gave my Celebrate Today card the finishing touch. I’m really sorry to see all the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon retiring. What I like most about it may not sound like a compliment, but I like that it doesn’t have any personality. What I mean by that is that it is neither cutesy or elegant, making it easy to use on almost any type of handmade card. It is also easy to tie into a bow, probably one of the easiest ribbons I’ve used to make bows. The Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon you see on the lower right corner is 30% off and now available only while supplies last!

The other is the Pacific Point button from the Brights Designer Buttons. Many times I used a button when a hand stamped card needs just a little something to dress it up. Having buttons to coordinate with all the other exclusive Stampin’ Up! color products is how they are the perfect, coordinating finishing touch. You guessed it, the Brights Designer Buttons are retiring, too, and now available only while supplies last!

All the retiring products are listed below. You want to place your order as quickly as you can get to my online store www.shopwithshelly.com before they sell out!

White cardstock is white cardstock, right?

It really isn’t. How crisp and clear your stamped images are does depend on the cardstock. All white cardstock is not created equally.

Stampin’ Up! Whisper White and Very Vanilla Cardstock are designed to take ink well for a fantastic stamped image. Its smooth, tight finish keeps stamped images vibrant, so all your stamping looks crisp and clean.

 

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the same cake stamp from the Party Wishes Stamp Set stamped with Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pad ink and same pressure on Georgia Pacific 110 lb Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock.

 

White cardstock is not white cardstock

 

The difference is obvious even in a small photo and much more dramatic in person.

 

The Georgia-Pacific cardstock is rated for laser, ink jet and multi function printers and works quite well for that purpose.

 

White cardstock is not white cardstock. Each was designed for a different purpose. We take time and care to make handmade cards. Use Whisper White and Very Vanilla Cardstock to give your handmade cards crisp and clean stamped images!
