Covid-19 Giveback

Hello everyone! I want to share with you a new fundraiser Stampin' Up has started! 

Stampin’ Up! is committed to making a difference in our global communities and caring about people first. As part of our Making a Difference program we’re offering a product giveback opportunity to support organizations that are helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to the pandemic.

You can purchase the Share Sunshine PDF Download and we will donate 100% of the proceeds to COVID-19 efforts.
The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both lighthearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing–including many ideas that came from Demonstrators and customers! You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!

I got a chance to play with it yesterday and I chose this sentiment- Just Breathe (but wear your mask!) because I HATE wearing my mask! LOL! I thought it was funny. 
I used it along with the beautiful Butterfly Gala stamp set and matching Butterfly Duet Punch.  I also used the retiring Flourishing Dies for the vellum flourish and the In the Tropics Dies for the flowers.  The stitched rectangle was stenciled with an old stencil I have and White Craft Ink. 

You can purchase the fun, 17 page PDF download here.

'18-'20 In Color Rainbow Cards

Hello and welcome back! I've got another set of 18-20 In Color cards for you today! For these cards, I used my Layering Circle Dies to create rings and then layered them on die cut hearts in rainbow order!  

For this one, I layered the rainbow on the Be Mine Stitched heart twice. I cut out the words from the Well Written die set four times, stacked and adhered them so they were thick. I also added score lines in the back with my Simply Scored

Here, I changed the design up just a bit. I only added one rainbow and I flicked ink from my Stampin' Blends in the background. 

From this angle, you can see how I created thick letters by cutting several layers of the words and glueing them together. 

Remember these beautiful In Colors will retire on June 2nd. Make sure you've stocked up and gotten the markers, ink pads, ink refills and cardstock before they are gone for good!

Beautiful Bouquet

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today, I've got a card that features the retiring Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. This set has been around for many years and is such a wonderful set. It has 37 stamps! Thats huge! And, of course, it has matching dies

Before I show you the card, let me also show you my inspiration! I used Stampin' Up's #keepstamping challenge as a starting point. The colors this week are Lovely Lipstick (retiring), Blushing Bride, Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green. Such a bright a bold color pallet perfect for spring! 

I stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick, Blushing Bride and then Highland Heather/Gorgeous Grape. I cut them all out with the matching dies. I also cut out the stems from Granny Apple Green and the bow/ribbon from Gorgeous Grape. I also cut out some of the small flower clusters from Blushing Bride Cardstock. Then, I just started layering them up with Tombo Liquid Glue and Dimensionals. 

The background piece is embossed with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder and then layered on a Whisper White Stitched So Sweetly scalloped rectangle. 

I added another sentiment and a few of the same flowers on the inside. Remember, this stamp set and matching die set are retiring. Once the dies are sold out, they won't be back. The stamp set is guaranteed through the end of May. If you'd like to purchase this set, you can shop here in my online store.  

And don't forget, today is the very last day to register for my Ornate Garden Class to Go!

Facebook Friday- 2018-2020 In Colors

Hello everybody! It's time for Facebook Friday! I hope you can join me for an hour of distraction and fun stamping! 

This week's Facebook Friday projects feature the 2018-2020 In Colors, which are retiring!  These are my most favorite In Colors of all time and I'm very sad to see them go!    

 In case you've never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Friday at 2:00 CST) on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.

My first project is a fun rainbow technique. You can recreate this card with any dies you have! Don't these colors make a great rainbow?

Next up, I'm making another rainbow card. The first card was my original project, but the DSP has already sold out! So, I've changed it a bit for today in case you don't have the DSP. I've used two retiring products instead of the DSP-  Budding Borders stamp set and the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder.   The bog Wish die is also retiring! Its from the Broadway Lights Dies. 

And last, we're going to use the In Color Markers to make a rainbow sentiment. I've got two versions and we're going to try a different color cardstock too! 

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project. 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($35 minimum) by 
Monday, April 27th, 2020 at midnight, 
I'll send you all three make and takes for free! 
(You'll need  the stamps, ink and adhesive to complete these projects, but they will include all the paper and  embellishments needed.)
