Cincraft Stampers, Team Meeting, Sneak Peak into the Occasions & Sale-a-bration Catalogs

Saturday was our last Team Meeting for 2018.  Here we are getting ready to eat lunch together. Everyone brought a dish to share. Tortilla Soup, Caesar Salad, Fruit Salad, and fresh veggies. Must not forgot the awesome brownies we had for desert. This was the only photo I took of the whole day……insert sad face.

Our meeting was all about the Occasions & Sale-a-bration Catalogs. Today I am sharing with you the Valentine Sampler we made. While at OnStage I saw this and knew it would be perfect to make with my team. I didn’t write down who originally made it. I came home to make my version. I must say upfront, I am not a mathematician. It took me several hours to figure this out. It was a LOT of Big Shot cutting. I used several products, The Forever Lovely Bundle, Meant to Be Bundle, All my Love DSP, All my Love Ribbon Combo Pack, Stitched Shapes Framelits, & Stitched Labels Framelit.

I didn’t notice that my bow fell down. It should be in the left lower box.

Here are some close ups of the squares, rectangles.

Everyone enjoyed making the Valentine Sampler. Its always so much fun to stamp with others and using all the new products.

Winter Woods, Faux Watercolor

This is another card my Stamp Club will be making tonight in class. It features the Winter Woods Stamp Set and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

I used the largest Oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits and die cut with Shimmery White Paper since I was going to get it wet. Ink up the large tree with Mint Macaron Ink, lightly spritz with water and stamp. Make sure you hold it in place for a few seconds, then pick up and stamp again, over a little bit. Did that a couple of times. Once that was dry, I went on to do the Tranquil Tide trees, full strength, no water.  I added two Leaves from the Leaf Punch from Vellum to either side and attached with Dimensionals after you add the Ruffled Ribbon.

For the sentiment, I didn’t want to use the whole stamp, just the Thinking of You, so I put a piece of Washi Tape over the part I didn’t want, inked it up, took off the Washi Tape and stamped. Make sure you take off the Washi Tape or you will ruin your oval.

Healing Hugs

This is one of the cards my Stamp Club will be making tomorrow evening. It features the Stitched Seasons Framelits and the Healing Hugs stamp set. I embossed the Stitched Seasons piece with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, and added a little Crumb Cake ink with a sponge. The Whisper White was just too white. I stamped the flower from Healing Hugs in Crumb Cake onto my Crumb Cake card base, added the Braided Linen Thread and tied a bow, then added the Stitched Season Framelits with Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the rose in Merry Merlot onto Whisper White, the leaves are stamped with Tranquil Tide and both were fussy cut. To give the flower more dimension, I set the flower in my hand and used my thumb to press in the middle, then used Tombow Liquid Glue to glue just the center of the rose, added the leaves after I curled them a bit with my bone folder.

I die cut the sentiment piece from the Merry Christmas Framelits, it was stamped in Merry Merlot Ink. I put one Dimensional on the left side, and a bit of the Liquid Glue on the other side and attached to my card. Again I sponged the sentiment, it looked too white.

Finished off with a few of the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets.

Cutting Guide:

3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White for the Stitched Seasons Framelit
