Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge, Stampin’ Up! Products That are New to Us

This is the first time I’ve used the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. Did you know that this is a special stamp set? Every year Stampin’ Up! designs a stamp set for the Ronald McDonald House. For every stamp set sold, Stampin’ Up! donates $3. So far we’ve contributed over $1.5 million. So besides this being a super cute stamp set, its also raising money, and it goes with the Everyday Jars Framelits. Win/win/win!

Those cute butterflies are stamped with Black Archival Ink and fussy cut. I used our new Mini Dimensionals to attach to the jar. You might be wondering what paper I used for the butterflies and the scallop on the left. Well, you can check out my video showing you how to use Glossy Cardstock, Re-inkers and a Stampin’ Spritzer to make this fun technique.  I have many more cards to show you, all using different stamps & dies. Stay tuned! The Scallop is a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, and under the scallops I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. You’ll be seeing this punch a lot too.

I also used the Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon over the scallops and Decorative Ribbon Die. Now do you want to see how I did those diamonds on the right? Its Embossing Paste, Peekaboo Peach Re-inker & a tiny bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Can you see the sparkle? I’ve got a quick tutorial for you. I told you it was quick. What other dies would make great stencils? Lets see, Happy Birthday Thinlets, Frozen Treats Framelits, Cupcake Cutouts Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, just to name a few. Give it a try and leave me a comment. I’d love to see what you come up with. Stampin’ Up has made it so easy for us, the Embossing Paste, Palette Knives all are on page 201, and the Silicone Craft Sheet (page 203) makes it super easy to mix your paste with Re-inker & Glitter. Just make sure you clean your tools right away. We also have the pattern Party Decorative Masks that are awesome. You’ll find them on page 201 as well.
