Hello stampers and happy Thursday. It feels a bit strange to say that because lately I have been blogging only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Today I am going to show you how to make that gorgeous Country Club teepee card that I was talking about on Monday. Let’s take a look!
Country Club Teepee Card
This card is so striking to look at and it really makes you proud to give it to someone simply because it is so different. The best thing is that it isn’t difficult to make.
I was planning to write out all the directions, but my back is still killing me and too much sitting is not good at all. You can get the complete directions if you order from me this month as this card is part of the Demo Design Dream Team tutorial (how is that for a mouthful?) If you belong to my team or to my training group, you get this tutorial as a free perk. You can also check out this blog post for instructions and a video.
Thanks so much for joining me today and for taking part in my first ever Mega Facebook Party and auction yesterday. It was a LOT of fun. If you missed it, you can still see the videos on my Pampered Stamper page. We used a Double Wonder template to make fantastic cards. You can find the template here on Julie Davison’s blog as well as the story behind it. I hope to share some of my cards on Friday. Don’t forget to order your favourite retiring items including the supplies for today’s card. If you wait too long you might be disappointed, so if you live in Canada feel free to click on the items in the product list and shop online with me. I truly appreciate your business! Have a super day.
Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. I am late with this blog post but I had to say goodbye to Rachel this morning and that was hard! Today I am combining Country Club paper with Do the Impossible stamp set for some quick and easy masculine cards.
Each year we are excited to see what the new catalog will bring, but that also means that there will be a lengthy retiring list of products. If you are new to StampinUp! you are probably wondering what the heck this even means. It means that Stampin’Up! is constantly trying to keep its offerings fresh, both in colour and style. Certain products are “retired”, that means they will no longer be available for purchase. Once the list is posted, these items are only available while supplies last. Today I am going to show you a few of my favourites that I think you should really have.
Country Club Suite
This card was made using strips of Country Club paper that are 5 1/2″ long. You can overlap them to emphasize one pattern over another. What a great way to use up your scraps! #loveitchopit
Do you know what the biggest surprise with this card was? The gold element just popped out of the delicate framelit with absolutely no poking at all! Yes, you can give this card to someone who doesn’t golf at all, it’s just a great, attractive card.
Do you see the image in this card? It is NOT a stamp. It is the paper with lots of images that you can colour. I used the rectangle stitched framelits to cut it out.
Do The Impossible
This is another great stamp set that is perfectly suited for colouring. It also pairs very well with the country club paper. I stamped the image in memento black on shimmery white paper and coloured it with Blends.
This last card with Do The Impossible also uses shimmery white cardstock but I used an aqua painter and blueberry bushel ink to do a watercolour wash across the top giving the impression of a lake in the background.
Better Late than Never
It is now ten pm, so I am going to wrap up this blog post with no further niceties. Be sure to read my newsletter for some fun stuff happening on Wednesday or read about it on my business Facebook page. If you want to see my favourite Country Club card ever, check out this blog post from a while back. Guess what? I just see that I have never blogged about this amazing card so I will share it with you on Wednesday. Sleep well my friends!
