New Catalog Creations for the new Fun n’ Crafty Blog Hop

20140603-232720-84440003.jpgHow exciting Our First Ever Blog Hop.
Don’t forget to hop on over to all of the other blogs to check out what they have created.
We are casing a card out of the New Stampin Up Catalog that just went live on June 2nd.
There are some Amazing products in the new catalog. I can’t wait to show you more creations after I receive my first order. Shouldn’t be long.

Now for some fun!
If you turn to page 109 in your new Catalog you will see this card here I have cased. Of course I put my own spin on it. Here is the card Stampin Up created.

This card is a standard A-2 side folding card. 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 folded down the middle. I will list all the supplies I used along with the item numbers to make it easier on you if you would like to purchase any of these items.
For the base of the card I used Smokey Slate cardstock
I ran the front of the card base through the Arrows Embossing folder which gives your cardstock great dimension.


Next I created a background piece for the 1/4 in strip of cardstock sitting on the far right of the card.
I took a piece of whisper white and used the Chevron stamp from the stamp set “Work of Art” and stamped it at an angle all the way down the cardstock in memento tuxedo black ink.


I then layered a 1/4 in strip from the Brand New in colors Hello Honey cardstock.
I then cut a 2in x 2 1/2in rectangle from basic gray cardstock and added white stitch lines around it and corner chomped the edges.
I grabbed my Word Bubbles dies, Strawberry Slush cardstock, white vellum and die cut 3 of the word bubbles then added white stitched lines around those as well.
I love the stitched look. Makes cards so much fun.
Next I took 2 dies from the Circle Card die set. I used the star and the double ended fishtail banner. I cut out 3 of the stars and inked them really well in versamark ink then heat embossed them in black embossing powder.
I used the Just Sayin stamp set and stamped the sentiment “Hey there” then heat embossed that as well in black. The Just sayin stamp set goes with the word bubble die set. I had to block off the outline on the stamp with washi tape. I then inked it up took the tape off and stamped it out.
My last finishing touch I added 4 of the rhinestone basic jewels to give it that extra bling!

I hope you have enjoyed my part in the Bog Hop!!!

Happy Father’s Day card!

I created this card for a fun little contest by my up line.
Products used.
Dies –
Stampin Ups new Baby’s First set.
I used the onesie and the tie.
On the onesie I only die cut the top portion to make it look like a t-shirt.
I also used the Word bubbles dies for the cloud like word bubble.
Work of Art.
For the background I used The long straight stamp and on the shirt I used the circle stamp.
Then in the word bubble I used the Just sayin stamp set for the “You’re the best”.
For the small circles that read DAD I used the See ya later stamp set from Sale a Bration and added versa-mark and basic black embossing powder on just to the D and A then cut them out with the 1/2 in circle punch.
You can do this with any of your sentiment stamps if u like the font or don’t have any letter stamps.
Just put washi tape over the other letters then ink your stamp and remove the washi then stamp it and repeat that for each letter.
