Christmas Quilt

This is the third card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  It uses the  new stamp set called Christmas Quilt which is in the new 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  This stamp set has matching Framelits called Quilt Builder Framelits Dies.  This suite is definitely my favorite in the entire catalog.  There are 16 stamps in the set and 15 dies.

Below is a video by Stampin’ Up! using this suite.

Oh So Eclectic

After having a birthday, I needed to get back on the Thank You card wagon.  My family gave me some amazing gifts.  I told them all I really wanted is for all of them to come see me but that wasn’t quite possible since they live so far away so gifts was the next best thing!  David did come out for dinner with us that night, which was fun.

I made this card using the stamp set called Oh So Eclectic.  This stamp set has some matching Framelits called Eclectic Layers and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  These are both part of a suite which usually means there are other products that go with them.  In this case, there is Designer Series Paper called Naturally Eclectic,  There are card overlays which are also called Naturally Eclectic.  I love the way Stampin’ Up! puts these products to together to help take the guesswork out of matching products up.  Although I didn’t use all of these products on this card, I will list them below for your convenience.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Thankful Thoughts.

Painted Harvest

This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  This card uses a few new products that are in the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Do you have a copy of this catalog yet?  If not you can pick one up for free from me!

The first set we used is called Painted Harvest.  This set has a matching punch called Leaf Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  I didn’t use the leaf punch for this card but you definitely should get it.  There have been so many times I wish we had a leaf punch and now we do!

The second new stamp set we used is called Labels to Love.  This set also matches a brand new punch called Everyday Label Punch.  Although this punch matches the stamp set there is no Bundle for it BUT the Everyday Label Punch matches a different stamp set in the catalog called Merry Little Labels.  If you buy those in a Bundle you can save 10%. I think it is great that there are two stamp sets to match one punch.  It makes the punch that much more versatile!

A Sketch Stamp Off Challenge

This is the first week of our new schedule at BS & J Productions.  In case you missed it, we have decided to do our challenges every other week.  Sometimes life gets in the way of stamping, which is totally ridiculous if you ask me.  Nothing is more important than stamping, is it?  Well, maybe grandchildren are!

Today’s challenge is a sketch challenge.  I think maybe Jackie designed it but I usually get that wrong.

Here is my card:

Of course, I decided to take some liberties with the sketch.  It is what I do!.  I made this card using merchandise from the awesome 2017 Holiday Catalog.  The stamp set is called Snowflake Sentiments  This set has matching Thinlits called Swirly Snowflakes (although I didn’t use them) and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

The gold snowflake behind the sentiment is also from the Holiday Catalog.  They are called Foil Snowflakes and they come in gold or silver.  The back of them is actually white so you can put some ink on them and make them any color you wish.  You could even stamp them in Versamark and put a little Copper Embossing Powder on them to make them copper.  That would be awesome!

Lastly, the Washi Tape I used is called Year Of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape.  It it is also in the Holiday Catalog.  I used three pieces of the tape on this card.  The top and bottom thin gold tape is one and the middle section is another.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made with this sketch.

At Home With You

This is the first card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting.  It uses a stamp set that is in the 2017/2018 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog called At Home With You.  This stamp set has matching Framelits Dies called At Home and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The background uses the Embossing Folder called Brick Wall.

One of the fun things about this Bundle is how the Framelits cut the door out on three sides so it opens.  Here is a picture of the card with it open.

Isn’t that fun?

Speaking of fun, whenever we have our monthly stamp club meetings the men of the families get together at a local restaurant for dinner and a couple of drinks.  They call it the Stampin’ Widows Club.  I am not sure how well they behave themselves at their “meeting”.  I have seen some crazy pictures and they tend to stay out longer than our club meeting lasts.  I am thinking they are having a little too much fun!

Painted Harvest

Here is another new stamp set that is in the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  This one is called Painted Harvest.  This stamp set has an amazing matching punch called Leaf Punch and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a  Bundle.  I have been waiting for a leaf punch forever (and so have my customers).  I think it will be very popular so if you like it, order it soon.

The stamp set is a two step stamp set.  This means you use two or more stamps to make one image.  As you can see in the card the flowers are two colors.  I stamped the background flower in Peekaboo Peach and the inner part of the flower with Pumpkin Pie ink.  The leaves are in Lemon Lime Twist and the flower centers are Crumb Cake.

The stamp set and Punch are part of a suite that Stampin’ Up! offers.  I love that they put products together in a suite so there is no guessing what products go together.  The suite has Designer Series Paper called Painted Autumn, 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon and Touches of Nature Elements which are flowers and leaves in white washed wood.

The sentiment is from the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet.

I do have to say, as much as I love all the new products, I am having a hard time getting myself to sit down and stamp.  The problem is I have this view to look at every day and every night.  It is hard to keep my eyes off of.  I’ll be better when we move back home and my view is of the basement walls!
