Easy rolled flowers with Stampin' Up papers

I have always loved flowers and it is so great that you can make them from paper!  If you join Stampin' Up you will not only get discounts, but ideas on beautiful projects you can make, and this wreath was one that a member of the Artisan Designer team recently posted.  She made easy rolled flowers from paper and I know that there are lots of other fun projects you can make with rolled paper spiral flowers.

Here are the pictures on how you make these simple rolled flowers:

 You can use plain paper, printed paper, or stamped paper for the flowers.  Check out Stampin' Up's facebook page for more ideas, as well as my online store, where you can either order items or join as a Stampin' Up demonstrator and receive lots of free products!  There is a special if you join where you receive free inkpads! 

July is a perfect month to purchase Stampin' Up designer papers, as the promotion is you get one free set of papers if you order 3!

Join in the fun today!

Red, white & blue July blog hop - Happy 4th of July

Welcome to the July 2018 blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our theme this month is red, white, and blue – of course to celebrate 4th of July!  Here is my project for the blog hop:

 I had so much fun with the large letter framelits diecuts and wanted to use them again, and decided to spell out my son’s name for an “eclipse” birthday card for him this month.  An eclipse card is where you pop up the die cut letters/image by adding dimensional pop-up dots to the back of the letters and applying the letters over the cut out openings.  The trick is to make sure you measure and cut accurately and use thick foam adhesive under the letters – the Stampin’ Up dimensionals are perfect for this!  Or you could use the foam adhesive strips.  I think this technique was also called “shadowing.”

 Here are a few closeups and other angles of my card:

These are the Stampin’ Up products I used for my card:

Large letters framelits

Blueberry bushel inkpad, cardstock, and 6 x 6 designer paper (this is one of the current new In colors)
Poppy parade cardstock and 6 x 6 designer paper (in the brights color pad)
Silver metallic thread
Polka dot tulle ribbon (I dyed it with the blueberry inkpad – it was very messy and I had blue fingers for quite a while so will probably wear gloves next time; the inkpad was brand-new and very juicy!)
 Metallic pearls in silver
Pop up dimensionals (cut in half to fit the letters as needed)

 You can get all of these Stampin’ Up products in my online store:

You can view a tutorial of the eclipse technique on Stampin’ Up youtube site here:

Shammy this, shammy that...what is a shammy?

Such a funny name for a super useful new Stampin' Up item!  So what does a shammy look like?  For one, I love the color - here is a picture of it:

And here is a description of what this item is used for:

Simply Shammy  #l47042; $8 - This reusable stamp cleaning cloth makes stamp cleaning effortless. Just add water, then wipe stamps on the shammy. Durable, thick shammy easily cleans ink from narrow grooves. No lint, no chemicals—just clean! (Ink will stain shammy but won’t transfer to your fingers or other stamps.) With its portable 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) size it fits neatly in a stamp case.  Available in my online store:
Clear-Mount Stamp Cases #119105  $6 for 4 cases  

You can cut it up into smaller pieces - Before you use your Simply Shammy, you need it to be moist, so use your Stampin' Spritzer. But you don't want water getting all over your grid paper! So, take a spare stamp case, here I have used a standard sized one, and place your Simply Shammy inside. It's a perfect fit. Now you can spritz it with water and keep it in there to clean your stamps. Don't forget that when you've finished creating you need to let it dry out between uses. Leave the stamp case open until the Simply Shammy is dry.

Order your shammy and case in my online store:
