Party Puffins Birthday Card

We have a new catalogue that launched today – you can use the link in the sidebar to view it!!

This card was created using my FAVOURITE set from the new offerings.

I designed this card for the Colour Challenge at Handstamped Sentiments (HSSCC363)

I even used the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends (there isn’t a Bumblebee Blends) to create the orange on the Puffin beak.

You can see all the details of how I created this card in the video below.

Please also check out all of my upcoming events – you can see the full list on my home page of this blog or under events at https://leahdixon.stampinup.net/

Dino Days

I don’t have small kids anymore and yet I STILL love creating with dinosaurs. Luckily I have friends and family with littles who appreciate these cards. The dino card I created today was inspired by a sketch challenge #mojosketch557

I also used a ton of soon to retiring product. Like the real dinosaurs, the Dino Days stamp set, the Denim ribbon and the DSP will all be extinct soon. Check out my full product list below and grab your items before they are gone! Or head straight to my shop to choose from the full retiring list.

Hello! Kangaroo & Company Card

I LOVE this Kangaroo & Company stamp set and die bundle – the kangas are so sweet! However, today’s card shows how you can use the other element sin the set to make fun creations as well. I am going to be mailing out some random hello cards to friends, family and customers soon – so here is one of the cards I’ll be sending.

The layout for this card was inspired by one of my favourite sketch sites – Freshly Made Sketches ( FMS475).

To start I stamped the cute envelope on the Thick Basic White background using Smoky Slate ink. Then I used Blending brushes to apply Magenta Madness ink (on the left) and Balmy Blue ink (on the left) to a Basic White shape cut using the largest die in the Stitched So Sweetly set. As I applied the ink I covered 2/3 of the shape with each colour – creating the Misty Moonlight – ish colour in the center. I then used the matching inks to stamps the hearts. I used the matching inks to colour the hearts on the envelopes and to ink JUST the hello on the Hello Baby stamp. I wrapped twine around the scallop shape and tied a bow on the right. Then I put everything together with Dimensionals. A fairly quick card with a soft but stunning look.

To order the product need to make this card ( and many more) you can click the links below or go straight to my shop.

Butterfly Brilliance – 1 card 3 ways

Today’s cards are all created using the not yet released Butterfly Brilliance Collection by Stampin’ Up!

Customers will be able to order this collection as of March 2nd (the stamp set and dies will be available in the new Annual Catalogue on May 3rd however; the DSP and Specialty paper are only available while supplies last from March 2 – April 30)

The first card I created was designed with a beginner stamper in mind. I used only 2 inks, 3 cardstocks and some glue. And yet the result is stunning.

To step it up a notch, I used essentially the same stamping, however, I stamped the butterfly twice and fussy cut it out. I embellished with twine and rhinestones and attached most pieces with my favourite adhesive – Dimensionals!!

Aside from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection, here are the supplies used to make this card. You can order the Butterfly Collection March 2nd, or add it to your starter kit today (**until Feb 28th you’ll even get 5 free DSP packs in addition to all the other perks of the kit**).

Magenta Madness 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock
$12.00
Blushing Bride 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock

$10.25

Whisper White Medium Envelopes
$10.25

For my 3rd version of this card I took it up a few notches for the avid stamper. I used the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to add detail to the Specialty Paper, cut a label out of DSP, and to cut the intricate butterfly. Of course, I topped it all off with a dash of Wink of Stella.

If you want to see the whole process in action you can view my video below ( please subscribe to my You Tube channel if you enjoy these videos – then you’ll never miss one!)

I am hosting a Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Camp with some other talented Canadian Demonstrators. You can see all the details of the camp here: https://stampinup.net/crm/events/91361

Basically if you purchase the Collection from me on March 2 – 6th using the host code: NP2DWBBP , you will automatically be registered for the Stamp Camp. We will be making 8 beautiful cards and there will be 4 Mystery Stamping activities as well.

Hey Birthday Chick!

You may have noticed the Hey Birthday Chick stamp set in the Jan – June Mini (p. 52) and thought Gee that’s fun! You may have even thought it looked familiar – because it is. During Sale-a-bration 2017 a set called Hey Chick was the most popular stamp set, so Stampin’ Up! created this new birthday version. Even better, they are bringing back Hey Chick and they are offering coordinating dies to go with both sets!! These two bundles are only available from Feb 2nd – June 30th.

The advantage to ordering the bundles is that you save 10% and you can earn FREE sale-a-bration items with every $60 order.

I loved this stamp set the first time around – so I am THRILLED to have more pieces to play with. Here is the card I created today. We did a little bit of masking and used the amazing Blending Brushes.

To see more samples using these bundles – follow my facebook page – I’ll be posting cards daily this week.

The video below goes into some details about how I made the card – you may want to layer up the front piece – I got lucky and my Blends did not bleed into the inside of my card. Phew!
