Embossing Technique Video from Stampin Up!

By Lisa Freeman | September 23, 2017

Hey everyone!

Stampin Up came out with 2 great new videos showing some cool embossing techniques that you may not have seen before. I know there was one I had never seen before!

I think you are going to love them and want to try these techniques out yourself!

Here are a few of the cards you will learn how to make in these videos. I love the faux metal embossing technique. It looks so cool and is actually not that hard.

Painted Harvest Framed Art

By Lisa Freeman | September 22, 2017

Hey Everyone,
I recently held a Painted Harvest framed art class and here is the project that we made.

I saw a card on Pinterest using these colors and absolutely loved it. They are wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant and soft suede. I also used a little bit of crumb cake and sahara sand for background stamps and sponging.

I used several stamp sets, including painted harvest, dragonfly dreams, timeless textures, ribbon of courage, butterfly basics, sheet music and touches of texture. 

I bought the 8×10 shadowbox frames from Michaels online. There are 3 in a pack for $30 but they go on sale for half price all the time, so they come out to about $5 a piece. The frame was included in the class.

Here are the measurements

crumb cake  8×10

wisteria wonder 6 1/2 x 8 1/2

soft suede 4×6

vanilla 3 1/2 x 5 1/2

small pieces:

soft suede 2×3 (3 of these)

vanilla 1 3/4 x 2 3/4 (3 of these)

I also used scraps of vanilla for the cutout pieces.

Carols of Christmas with Glittered Embossing Paste

By Lisa Freeman | September 15, 2017

Hey everyone!

Today I’m going to show you how to create this beautiful Christmas card using embossing paste as the background.  It is super easy to do and creates such a unique look.  I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set.  Here is the card I made with a close up of the embossing paste sprinkled with dazzling diamonds glitter. I also used the dazzling details glimmer paper for the tree. The embossing paste is so much fun to use. Check out my video below to see how I did it!

Hurricane Relief Efforts….

By Lisa Freeman | September 11, 2017

 

IN THIS, WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

SU_HurricaneRelief
Hey everyone,I am sure everyone is aware of the devastation happening in Florida right now. It is heart wrenching watching the hurricane and it destroys so much. The Houston area was just hit and now Florida too. 

Along with many of you, we are watching with concern as stories unfold about the devastation left behind in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Though no one knows how many lives have been affected, Harvey is said to be one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, and the damage caused by massive flooding will be felt for years to come.

With you, we’re also trying to stay informed on the progress of Hurricane Irma; It will almost certainly leave as much destruction in its wake as Hurricane Harvey and will affect the lives of tens of thousands of people.

As a Stampin’ Up! family, we invite you to help us give to those who are now (or will soon be) trying to rebuild their lives. From now until the end of October, Stampin’ Up! will match donations made to the American Red Cross, dollar-for-dollar, for up to $50,000. Please click here to donate.

The Stampin’ Up! community is already making a difference through ongoing hurricane relief efforts. Here are some ways people are raising money.

  • Demonstrators are donating a portion of their commissions.
  • Demonstrators are holding dedicated events, including retired product sales, where all proceeds are being donated to hurricane relief.
  • Customers are being invited to donate at events. 
  • Demonstrators are selling unused cards or are mounting past swaps on card bases and selling them (in accordance with the Angel Policy) to raise hurricane relief funds.

If you’re a Stampin’ Up! customer and would like to help,  click here to donate to the American Red Cross.

Together, we can do incredible things! We hope you’ll join us . . . because we truly can make a difference.

Marbled Background Meets Tranquil Tulips!

By Lisa Freeman | September 10, 2017

Hey everyone!

I am in love with the new Marbled Background stamp and if you blink, you might miss it in the Stampin Up catalog! It is on pg 165. It looks like the shaving cream technique that I used to do a long time ago. But it is so much easier and there is no sticky mess to clean up!! 

I also love the Tranquil Tulips hostess stamp set which you can find on pg 223. You can only get this stamp set if you are a hostess or place an order over $150. It won’t be available to order so make sure you book your party or place your qualifying order so you don’t miss out. 

You can see a close up below of the wink of stella colored on the flowers. I looove the wink of stella pen and if you tap the pen on the side of the lid, it will sprinkle little glitter dots on there. That’s how I did the notebooks farther down on this page. 

 

I also made a how-to video showing you how I made it. The video will not show up in an email feed so please click on the link to see the video. 

 

 

      I also made several notepads that I had left over from other classes and just changed the colors to go with the background color and pens that came with the pads. I used lemon lime twist and tempting turquoise for the first and last ones and the center one is pumpkin pie and pear pizzazz. I also splattered the wink of stella on these. You can use almost any color you want for these tulips and they are just gorgeous.
