NEW Release Share What You Love Bundles


Hello Friends!! here is the final card for this week showcasing the newest products from Stampin' Up! being released!!

The card today is very simple and quick to make.. I love using the embossing folder for the background as it add a really nice dimension to the card.. I also added a twine under the focal point to add texture to the card and though this suite doesn't include the faceted gems, you can see a sneak peek of another product coming up in June, these gems come in mint macaroon, grapefruit grape, blackberry bliss and black, these come in different sizes and thou these gems are not part of this suite, they color coordinate really well with the Share What You Love suite!

For the love of creating Blog Hop - New products sneak peek!


Hello Friends!!, here I am participating in a blog hop to showcase new products from the upcoming catalog to be released on June 1, so be sure to go thru this blog hop as we show you a sneak peek of brand new products!! 

Please note that we have a global team participating on this hop, which I think is great as you get to know other participants across the globe that you might not know of..  there are a lot of great and very talented demonstrators so I am sure you will get a lot of inspiration from the projects being shared with you.

The card that I am sharing today is featuring the Graceful Glass Suite!! this suite has a pack of designer vellum that coordinates pretty well with the Panted bundle which has a stamp set and a coordinating framelits.

This whole suite is really beautiful and in a way it makes me remember the beauty and the beast movie.. this flower for instance and the font on the sentiments as well.. 


Check out blog post with instructions on how to make this card with TIPS and Tricks for making handmade cards using Stampin Up's Graceful Glass Suite!  You will love how quick and easy this is to make!  www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #thankyoucards #brandnewproducts #sneakpeekproducts

The vellum was colored using the stampin' blends, and as you can see here there are new colors!! I am so excited with this!! In the new catalog there are 11 new stampin' blends colors!!! on this card I used the Call me Clover new color, which also happens to be one of the NEW In-colors!! 

I am so excited to have new colors on the blends as these have become my favorite way of coloring, and using these for coloring vellum is super easy!! the ink dry super fast! and if you color outside the lines (not that this happen often - wink) you can remove the excess with the color lifter (white blend) so you cannot go wrong with these!!

On this close up, you can see also a new embellishment, the black cord, which in person looks so nice, as this is shiny.. it really looks very nice.

Card base: Rich Razzleberry 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", whisper white 2 1/4", Gracefull Glass designer vellum 2 1/4", Mat Basic Black 2 1/2", scrap of Call me Clover to punch a starburst with punch, and scrap of Whisper White to punch a 2" circle and to stamp and die cut the rose  

Instructions:
  1. Fold in half the card base using the bone folder
  2. Color the vellum using the stampin' blends, I use the Call me Clover both shades and the light shade of Rich Razzleberry, then using glue dots, glue the vellum to the Whisper White (same size), and using snail glue this piece to the Mat (Basic Black) and glue this section to the front of the card base
  3. Using the Memento ink pad, stamp the sentiment and punch the circle out of the Whisper white scrap, and also stamp the rose and die cut it, color it using both shades of Rich Razzleberry and Call me Clover; Glue the rose to the circle using dimentionals and glue the circle to the starburst piece using dimentionals.

Here is a close up image from the focal point, I actually heat embossed the stamped image in basic black, which by the way is returning in the annual catalog this year!!

NEW Release Share What You Love Bundles


Hello Friends!! As I mentioned on my previous post, this week I am sharing brand new products from the upcoming catalog!! and you can start getting them in May as well.. 

All these products are available in bundles, and all the bundles include FREE products depending on the bundle!!!

However you can get some of these bundles under the ultimate bundle, where you get $125 worth of products for only $99, when you purchase the starter kit you pick what you want to include in your kit, there are no commitment and you get lots of perks!!!, you can learn some of the benefits HERE.. also once you purchase your kit you get at least 20% discount in any subsequent order of Stampin' Up! products!! so it really is a great deal.. 

Below are the three bundles available for these new products! Though honestly I think that the best one is the Gotta Have It All Bundle, since it has all the new products!! 




The card I am featuring today shows a different color technique, where I used daubers to color an embossed piece.. I used the lovely floral dynamic textured impressions embossing folder on a very vanilla piece of paper and then softly I added the color with the daubers on the debossed side, but you can do either side, though you would get a different look, I show you both of the looks on the video tutorial below..

You can see a better look at this card on the below close up.. the biggest tip on technique is to go really soft at adding color, as it is easier to add color to make it darker rather than try to get darker shades very quickly..
