Holiday Season Inspirations

Hi Everyone,

One of the things I love about attending Stampin' Up! events, are all the wonderful card designs and ideas that inspire me with my creations.  At the Denver Regional, I had the opportunity to take photos of hundreds of different cards and projects on display that were generously shared by demonstrators.

Today I thought I would share a few photos of cards created that have that Wow! factor without being overly complicated.  Some feature punches, perhaps some Designer Series Paper or maybe some ribbon to make the design pop.

These first two cards are examples of how different techniques can provide a different look to your card design. The top card focuses on stamping, with the ornaments arranged with the smaller ornament stamped separately and die cut before adding to the card.  There is a classic elegance to this card design which is  in contrast to the card below it.

The bottom card was created using punch art and has a bold, fun feel to it.  The background has been embossed with the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder. The "pom poms" on the elf shoes were created with a circle punch from Silver Glimmer paper for a little sparkle.

Both cards have that eye-catching quality without being overly fussy or difficult to create. The next two cards show how you can take die cutting and give it a little twist for an unexpected look.

The Season's Greetings card features Designer Series paper as the focus of the card.  The opening was cut with the large framelit from the Apothecary Accents set.  By filling the negative space with strips of Designer Series paper from the Be of Good Cheer DSP pack, you take a simple white card base and make it a Wow card.  The Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon adds the perfect embellishment to the sentiment for a quilted look to a traditional Christmas card.

This next card was created using the Holiday Collections Framelits set, which can be purchase separately or as part of the Scentsational Season Bundle in the 2012 Holiday Catalog. Once again the negative space created by the framelits has been filled, this time with various ribbon scraps to add color and dimension to this card design.  The little tags and Early Espresso Bakers Twine give the card a rustic, country feel.

Christmas ornaments are a popular theme with Christmas cards and this pretty card features the stamp set Chock Full of Cheer. I love the combination of Gumball Green (one of the new 2012-2014 In Colors) with Cherry Cobbler.  The Designer Series paper provides a wonderful background and the Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon makes a great accent to the ornament.  This is just one of the five 2012-2014 In Color Ribbons that you can earn for free during the month of September with a $40 purchase of Stampin' Up! products.  Just think how many Christmas cards you could make with a free spool of ribbon.

The final card that I am sharing today, also features my favorite combination of Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler.  This time the focal point is a Santa created using various punches.  Isn't it cute! I love the Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding used to embellish this card. It really pops against the polka dots of the Gumball Green Designer Series paper.

I hope you have enjoyed the card designs I have shared with you today and I hope it helps demonstrate how you can create amazing Christmas cards to fit the style that best works for you.  Using a similar color palette, you can create something classic and elegant or something more fun and bold. It doesn't have to be overly complicated or fussy to have that Wow factor that will have you friends and family loving the cards you send them this holiday season.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,

Great Bootiful Occasions Swaps & Samples from Denver Regional

Hi Everyone,

Today I thought I would share some photos of samples on the display boards as well swaps I received at the Denver Regional last weekend.  These card designs feature a new stamp set in the 2012-2013 Catalog that I hadn't really looked at closely, but I must say I have since fallen in love with. The stamp set I am talking about, is the Bootiful Occasions stamp set which can be found on page 50 of the catalog and contains 5 stamp images you will love, especially if you love boots and will work for occasions throughout the year.

This first card was a swap card on display and I love this Christmas card design. The sparkle on the trim of the boots adds a little bling to this clean and simple design. Change the color of the boots and add a different sentiment and you could personalize this card to suit any occasion just right for that special person.

This second card design was featured on one of the display boards and I love the bright colors and cheerful design, it just brightens your day to look at it. This cute pair of Wellington boots was created by stamping the image twice and cutting out one boot to overlap the other.  This would be a great Get Well Card or Thinking of You card.

The next card sample is a swap I received from Sharon Pettit, a demonstrator visiting from Albuquerque, New Mexico.  I love the color combination she used for this card design and this would be a great idea for a masculine card.  The boot has been cut out and popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals and the gold brads are the perfect embellishment to finish off the card.

The last two cards I have to share with you today are fabulous Halloween Cards that add a little style to this spooky holiday. This first card design was featured on the Halloween Display board and I love the cute spider background created using the postage stamp punch. The web image is from the stamp set Wicked Cool (page 28) and the cute little spider is from the stamp set Spooky Bingo Bits (page 29).  I love the combination of Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black and the 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta ribbon makes a cute embellishment to the boot.

The second Halloween card is a card front I received as a swap from Sherry Huxtable, a demonstrator from Wichita, Kansas. I just love the bling on this card provided by the new Champagne Glimmer paper found in the new Holiday catalog on page 18. I love the way she used it as a background to make the boot image pop, but she also used the small circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack to create the accents to embellish the card.

I hope you have enjoyed these wonderful cards and the versatility of this amazing stamp set, Bootiful Occasions.  It never ceases to amaze me how creative Stampin' Up! demonstrators are and I just love the variety of ideas that I have for this new stamp set to inspire me with my projects. I hope that you will be inspired to create your own projects to share with your family and friends.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts

Creative Card Share - Denver Regional Swap

Hi Everyone,

Last Saturday, September 8th, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the Stampin' Up! Regional held in Denver at the Convention Center.  It was such an amazing experience and being a part of the incredible creative energy in that room was inspiring.

One of the traditions at a Stampin' Up! event, is of course the swapping of cards and other items.  The past month has been a roller coaster ride for my family so my focus was not on my stamping.  I did manage to create 20 card fronts to swap the night before the Regional, and I am so glad that I was able to get them finished and participate in the fun.

I decided to design a birthday card that would work well for anyone.  How many times have you had an unexpected birthday surprise you and you needed a card that would work at a moments notice? With this card design, I felt that I had achieved that, as well as a sense of fun that would make the recipient smile.

The 3 gift bags were created using Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point cardstock and I embossed them with the Chevron Embossing Folder. The handles were created using the Whisper White Bakers Twine and the tissue paper was stamped with the circle image from the Confetti stamp set. I sponged the tissue paper and bags with the coordinating classic ink to add some dimension. I attached them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals for added dimension.

Did you notice the scored lines on the Whisper White cardstock layer? They were created using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and provide a little extra detail to the background. It also helps when it comes time to line up the bags on the card.

This is a card design that you could create in many different color schemes and have on hand as your emergency supply of birthday cards.  Create the bags in shades of pinks and purples for a more feminine version or use scraps of Designer Series Paper to create a designer look.

Over the next few days I will be sharing with you some of the cards I received from other demonstrators during the swap as well as photos of card designs featured on the display boards.  I hope you will find them as inspiring as I have, and I hope it will help you to create your own projects for your friends and family.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts

VC Rocks Blog 4 - Big Shot, Punch Art & Simply Scored Projects

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the VC Rocks Blog Hop #4, featuring projects created using the Big Shot, Punch Art with punches as well as Stampin' Up!'s Simply Scored Tool.  To view the list of blogs participating in this Blog Hop, click here to visit the VC Rocks Blog.

If you are just starting the Blog Hop here, then welcome and I hope you will enjoy all the wonderful projects that everyone will be sharing this weekend. Or perhaps you may have just come from Mary Campbell's Blog, Mimi to Jett and her amazing creations. This is my first Blog Hop ever and I am so excited to share my projects with you all.

With my 4 children starting school next week, I thought I would share with you this gift idea that would be perfect for a child to give to his/her teacher.  Isn't this petite purse simply adorable?  I just love using my Big Shot to create my projects.  It is probably my most favorite tool in my craft room.  As for my punches, well they would be a close second.

I created my petite purse and matching Thank You card using Wisteria Wonder cardstock from the 2011-2013 In Colors.  I am not normally a purple person but I really love using Wisteria Wonder and the way it pops against the Whisper White. The beauty of this project is that you can use whatever color combination you wish to suit the person receiving it.

The petite purse is created using the  Sizzix Petite Purse Bigz L die with the Big Shot. With just a couple of strips of Sticky Strip, this cute little purse goes together so simply.  Before I assembled the purse, I embossed the die cut cardstock with the new Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (from the 2012 Holiday Catalog) with just a quick pass through the Big Shot. I love the delicate texture it adds to the purse.

To create the embellishment on the front of the purse, I used the stamp set, Mixed Bunch with Wisteria Wonder Classic ink and punched out the stamped circle image using the 3/4" Circle punch. I love how the stamps in this set coordinate with Stampin' Up! punches to make quick and easy projects. I used the new 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch (also from the 2012 Holiday Catalog) to create the base and embossed it with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder to match the purse.  The basic Pearl jewel in the center of the flower image adds the finishing touch to the purse.

The matching card is also created using Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White cardstock.  I embossed the Whisper White cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to coordinate with the purse.  The flower is created using one of the stamps from the Mixed Bunch stamp set with Wisteria Wonder Classic ink and punched out with the coordinating Blossom punch. I also punched out another blossom shape from Wisteria Wonder cardstock and attached the layers with a Stampin' Dimensional, offsetting the petals.  I stamped the circle image separately (the same one I used for the purse) and punched it out with the 3/4" Circle punch. Once again I used the Basic Pearl Jewel to embellish the center.

The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets, Curly Cute.  I just love the simple elegance it brings to my projects.  I stamped Thank You with Wisteria Wonder Classic ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched it out using the Modern Label punch. I used the Extra Large Oval punch to punch out an oval from Wisteria Wonder cardstock to create a matte and also embossed it using the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.

You can fill your petite purse with candy or chocolate for a sweet treat.  It would also be great gift bag for jewelry for someone special.  Imagine the cute favors you could create for a Bridal or Baby Shower, not to mention for birthday parties. One of the best things about using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s punches, is that it helps you create amazing cards and gifts, quickly and easily.

I hope you have enjoyed my Blog Hop share and I hope it helps to inspire you to create your own creative project.  Now it's time to move on to Loni Holt's Blog, Loni's Life and see the wonderful creations she has for you. 

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts

Let it Snow?

Hi Everyone,

Well, it may not be cold enough to snow, but the temperature here in Northglenn is about 20 degrees cooler today than yesterday.  This started me thinking about the fact that it is mid August and snow has a habit of showing up here in Colorado when you least expect it. Thankfully it is usually gone again as quickly as it arrived, but it got me thinking about snowmen and how much I love these cute little guys.
So I thought I would share with you a card that we created recently at my Christmas in July card class.  I love the color combination of Island Indigo with Pool Party, two of the 2011-2013 In Colors, and it seemed like the perfect combination for a snowman card.
This frosty card features one of the snowmen from the stamp set, Snow Much Fun, and I think that is a pretty accurate description of this stamp set.  You can't help but smile when you create with these stamps.

Our snow friend was "watercolored" with a blender pen and ink and I added some sparkle to him with Dazzling Diamonds. The Silver Glimmer paper border and Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled ribbon accent dress up this fun Christmas card.
I hope you enjoy this sweet snowman Christmas card and I hope it inspires you to create your own Christmas cards ready for the holidays.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts

New Challenges - Exploring the world of ATC's

Hi Everyone,

Over the summer I have been expanding my creative horizons, trying new techniques and new formats of art with Stampin' Up! products.
It all started when I joined a yahoo group called VC Rocks for the summer and started participating in their challenges and swaps to help me get out of the slump I had fallen into.  Let me tell you, it has been a wonderful experience and I have created more cards and projects in the last two months than I had in the past 6 months.
One of the swaps I participated in was an ATC swap. Now you maybe asking, what is an ATC?
ATC stands for Artist Trading Card and it is like the art version of a baseball or sports card. Artists create these cards featuring their artwork and trade it with other artists.  There is a specific size requirement necessary to qualify as an ATC.  The card size required is 2.5" x 3.5".
Now I had first heard about ATC's during my decorative painting days, several years ago, but I found it difficult to paint small enough to do justice to my small canvas.  However, I have discovered that in my new medium of papercrafting using stamps and ink, the challenge was both enjoyable and satisfying. 
After auditioning several different ideas, this is the design I came up with featuring the stamp set, Creative Elements, one of my new favorite stamp sets.

Now the swap required me to create 11 identical ATC's (I created 12 so that I would have one to keep) to send to the Swap Organizer and in return I received back 10 different ATC's cards from the other participants. Below is a photo of 4 of the ATC cards I created for the swap.
I love the new In Color, Primrose Petal, that I used for the flower image.  The new foam ink pad provided wonderful coverage and was a dream to stamp with. Don't you just love the cute little blue butterfly created with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and embellished with a sparkling rhinestone for a little bling.

All in all, this was a wonderful experience and it was great to stretch myself to creating on a smaller size. I am looking forward to exploring the world of ATC's further in the future. Call me crazy, but wouldn't this look fantastic as a business card. Just add your details on the back and it would definitely grab people's attention when you hand them out. They would also make a great focal point on a card front or as an element on a scrapbook page. The opportunities are endless.
I hope my journey into the world of ATC's will inspire you to create something new and challenging.

Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts

Creative Card Share: Outlined Love Easel Card

Hi Everyone,

Today, as promised, I am sharing with you an Easel Card I created for Valentine's Day using the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Outlined Occasions as well as the stamp set Greeting Card Kids.  The sweet little girl is just perfect for water coloring using a blender pen Stampin' Up!'s Classic ink pads (I also colored the Love from Outlined Occasions using this technique).
The frame for the little girl was created using the new Sizzix Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Isn't this a beautiful die cut? I just love the detail and it turns an ordinary piece of cardstock into a delicate work of art.  For this card, I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock to showcase the stamped image and the Pretty in Pink cardstock matted behind the image.
The background of the card was created using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock.  To add a vintage feel to the card, I lightly sponged Frost White Shimmer paint onto the embossed areas of the cardstock using a sponge dauber.  It added a subtle shimmer to the cardstock that helped to enhance the Cherry Cobbler Doily frame. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the Doily diecut to the Pretty in Pink cardstock.
To create the base of the card, I once again used a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock. I stamped the Love image on Very Vanilla cardstock using Stazon Black ink and water colored the image. I then punched out the image using the Extra Large Oval punch and matted it with a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock punched using the Decorative Label punch.  I attached it to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals to allow it to act as a rest for the card front so that it stands up. The hearts located on either side were created using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die (found on p35 of the Occasions Mini Catalog) and embellished with the medium rhinestones from the Basic Rhinestones pack.
The wonderful thing about this card is that it lays flat and is easy to mail in a regular envelope. 
This card went together so simply using my Sizzix Bigshot to do the hard work for me, diecutting the Doily and embossing the cardstock.  I just love the way this card came together and I think it has a Wow factor to it, don't you?
I hope today's Creative Card Share has helped to inspire you to create your own Easel card for someone special.  With Easter just around the corner, not to mention Mother's Day, wouldn't this be the perfect type of card to send to a friend or family member?
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Until Next Time.
Happy Stampin',
Tricia Butts

Valentine's Day is a Celebration of Love

Hi Everyone,

With the new Occasions Mini Catalog starting today, I just wanted to share a quick creative project idea to inspire you ready for Valentine's Day. It's hard to believe that it is only a few weeks away, so there is no time like the present to start creating cards and gifts for the loved ones in your life.

Today's Creative Card Share is a project featured on my Stampin' Up! website Project Gallery here.  This beautiful card features the new stamp set, P.S. I Love You, which can be found on page 8 of the new Occasions Mini Catalog (available in both Wood & Clear Mount).

I love the embossed resist technique used to create the heart image and the heart circle stamp makes a wonderful background on the card base. This card also features several new products including the Blushing Bride Smooch Spritz (page 9) and the Calypso Coral Baker's Twine (page 35).

In case you are not familiar with Calypso Coral, it is one of the new In Colors for 2011-2013 and you can find the beautiful ruffled Calypso Coral ribbon in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog, as well as the other wonderful In Color products.

This card design is simple but has a definite Wow factor to it. It would also make a great birthday, anniversary or thinking of you card.  You could create a gorgeous card set featuring this layout and vary the colors for each card for a beautiful gift idea.

I hope you have enjoyed this Creative Card Share I hope it helps inspire you to create a special card for someone special in your life.

Until Next Time.
