Stampin Up Challenge #4 Love Blossoms

My post for today is my final card for Valentine's Day using the Love Blossoms suite in the Occasions catalog on pages 16 &17.  I made a shaker card and filled it with the sequins from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper hearts,


The fourteen was die cut using the Large Numbers framelits dies 140622,  These framelits also come with a coordinating stamp set Number of Years 140633.  If you bundle the two you can save 15% 140811.  These items are featured on pages 10 & 11.

I think I have used most of the stamped images and sayings as well as most of the embellishment kit on all my Valentine's cards and projects.  For my next project I will be moving onto another suite featured in the Occasions catalog, "It's My Party".  I will be making cards, gift bags, tags and 3-D items such as treat boxes for party favors.

If you would like to order any of the items I have featured click HERE to go to my Stampin Up web site and remember Sale-A Bration is going on until March 31st.  That's means with a $50 purchase you can choose one FREE item.

Stay tuned for more crafting goodness.

Love Blossoms #3 Stampin' Up Challenge

Today I want to share another card using the Love Blossoms suite.


This card looks complicated but it's not. All the intricate work is done using the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die 140621 and the Bloomin' Love Stamp set 140643.

Want to get 15% discount Bundle the Thinlits and the Stamp set 140818.

I made this card using Whisper White cardstock cut 10 x 5 and scored in half to make a 5 x 5 square card. For the layer I cut Blushing Bride cardstock 1/8" smaller.  All of the stamped images I used are in the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  I used the flowers to make the background and for the sentiment and used Watermelon Wonder ink.

The bow paperclip and ribbon I used is in the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit 140551.  The white pearls 119247 embellishment can be found in the 2015 Annual Catalog 

The heart and flowers for my focal point are all cut using the Thinlits die.  This intricate die has lots of small pieces and our new Big Shot Die Brush 140603 easily removes these cut pieces. Stampin' Up has a great video demonstrating the use of thinlits die and Die Brush.  I am adding it below.


Hope this video from Stampin Up  is helpful.  If you don't have a die cutting machine you can purchase the Big Shot and accessories HERE.  

With the purchase of a Big Shot you might want to consider becoming a demonstrator.  There are so many perks as a demonstrator and I would like to share them with you.  If your only interested in receiving products at a discount you can join as a hobbyist. Want to make money doing what you love, Crafting, then you can join and start a business.  It's up to you. Contact me using my email ogdendoll@gmail, com if you would like more information.

Come back soon and I will share what I received as my FREE stamp set from Sale-A-Bration. 
I will be making another Valentine's Day project.

Love Blossoms # 2 Stampin Up Challenge Series

Ready for another project?
Everyone likes to give candy hearts for Valentine's Day so I decided to make a treat box to fill.

I used the Love Blossoms suite again and some of the 2015-2017 Designers Series 138432 paper in Watermelon Wonder.  I really like the script paper.
It was really simple to make here it is


I used the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit 140551 for the foil heart and the wood veneer heart.  I punched a small heart from the Blushing Bride glimmer paper 140550 using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch set 133787.  The sentiment and banner were stamped using the the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set 140643 and Watermelon Wonder ink 138323.

The dimensions on the box are DSP cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score in portrait or vertical position @ 1" on both sides. Turn to landscape or horizontal position and score @ 1" and 3 3/4" on both sides.
Using a bone folder crease on all fold lines.  Trim at an angel the tabs on each side. To put the box together put adhesvie on each tab and then attach the sides to from the box. 
I got this box from Chick n Scratch she also has a video which is easy to follow.

Check back soon for a new project and if you missed my first post just scroll down for my Stampon' Up Challenge.

My Stampin Up Challenge

Hello! Everyone
 I know its been a while since my last post,  I'm back now and will be posting more frequently,
One reason, it's time for the new 2016 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  I've purchased so many things and recieved a lot of FREE stuff. I want to share some of the new products with you.

The Love Blossoms suite on pages 16 & 17 is perfect for Valentines' Day.  I love the soft color palate of pinks, it feels very vintage to me.  The Designers Series papers are gorgeous and the embellishment pack adds to the vintage feel.

The Going Places Suite on pages 38 & 39 has a masculine feel to it.  It would be great for Father's Day and masculine Birthday cards.

Of course who doesn't have Birthdays to celebrate all year long. With the It's My Party suite on pages 4 & 5 I'll be able to make one of a kind cards for everyone on my Birthday list.  The Designers Series Paper Stack will keep me well stocked with the right paper.  There are 12 double-sided deigns to choose from;

So this is my challenge.  Ive decided to make a project using everything I've gotten from the Ocassions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  The stamp sets, the ribbon, the paper, the die cuts or thinlits, the punches and embellishments,

Since Valentines Day is just around the corner I thought I would start with the Love Blossoms suite.  Here is my first card.

I kept this simple, paper, a punch and stamps.  I used the following items from the Love Blossoms suite

145549 Love Blossoms Cardstock Pack
I used Crumb Cake for my A2 card base 

140548 Love Blossoms Designers Series 6 x 6 Paper Stack
My first layer is cut 5 1/4" x 4" using a Crumb Cake patterned paper.
I used six different designs in Blushing Bride to punch out hearts using the 
133786 Sweet Heart Punch 

140643 Bloomin' Love Stamp Set
I stamped the banner and BE MINE using Crumb Cake ink pad 126975.  For dimension I added the hearts and the banner with Stampin dimensionals 104430.

140551 Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit
For some bling I used the enamel glitter dots and clear Wink Of Stella 141897 offered for the first time in the Ocassions catalog.  We also have it in gold 141898.

You can easily CASE this card purchasing these items and quess what?  Yep you will have enough to select a FREE item from the Sale-A- Bration catalog.

Christmas Crafting with Stampin' Up

Have you started making your Christmas cards and gift tags.  Me, too.  The 2015 Holiday Catalog has some great kits this year.  My sister-in-law and I got together and made tags using the Oh What Fun Project Kit on page 5.  We had lots of fun crafting together.


Here are a few samples. The kit makes 30 tags, 3 each of 10 designs.  The instructions were very easy to follow.  

Get some friends and family together and spend the evening making gift tags.  My sister-in-law and I ended up with 15 tags each and enjoyed a Sunday afternoon together.  

Select Shop Now button above and go to my Stampin' Up website to place your order.

Happy Holiday Crafting

BYE, BYE for Now
