It's Your Time to Shine!

 

I love that stamp!

 

It's from the Daisy Lane bundle (pg 23 in the catalog.)

 

 

We made this card at my New Catalog Launch Parties:

 

Daisy Lane bundle, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

To clarify, this is the MEDIUM Daisy Punch that I've been waiting for.

 

I also made this on my Facebook Live! today.

I'll post that tomorrow!

 

But here's the list of all I used here:

Glue Dots
$5.25

 

Now I also want to mention that the Stitched Nested Labels Dies that I've been using on everything lately *Ü* are bundled with the Free as a Bird set on pg 92.

 

Everyone seems to love it!

But I'm not a bird person.

 

Here's that set and bundle: 

 

Here's a sample I shared previously also, featuring the stamp set and DSP:

Free as a Bird, Bird Ballad DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com

My 4 Basics of a Masculine Card

 

I have BASICS I keep in mind for the seemingly difficult task of designing a masculine card.

 

Since I had a fun class with Geared Up Garage this week, I'll show you those ideas first.

 

 

From simple to a little more involved....

 

Geared Up Garage, Rooted in Nature, , www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Geared Up Garage bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Geared Up Garage bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

NOW, as you read my "basics" of a Masculine Card, see if you can find some of them on the cards I just showed you above.

 

(When you design, you don't have to take ALL these steps to make your card masculine. Pick and choose what you like or have available. Remember, sometimes less is more!)

 

My 4 Basics of a Masculine Card

  1. STAMP SET--Even if you don't have a set that is specifically masculine, one that involves nature or graphics (shapes, lines or textured background type stamps) works great!
  2. COLOR IS EVERYTHING! If you're unsure of a color to choose and don't just want "BLUE", go for anything that is a deep or neutral color. Some of my go to's are Mossy Meadow, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, Basic Gray--or ANY gray, Crumb Cake--or ANY brown. You could even use Blackberry Bliss with the right stamps/design.
  3. METALLICS!! I ALWAYS LOVE a masculine card with some kind of metal--whether it's foil sheets like on my last card or brads or a metal buttons or embellishment. Metallic goes a long way towards a good masculine look.
  4. TEXTURE--Choose something simple like stripes or corrugated folders or EVEN just crumple up your cardstock after you do your stamping and flatten it back out again. Rough it up! (Unless you count the gears die cut piece on my last card, I didn't really use this "basic" on any of my cards above. As I said, you don't have to use ALL the ideas. But maybe that's the one that will work for YOU!)

 

 

 

I hope that helped you with any last minute ideas you may need!

Announcement: Dies-Cutting & Embossing Product Line Changes

 

Die_line_transition_banner_en2

PLEASE READ.

If you have a die-cutting machine and/or are planning to order dies and folders, this affects YOU.

 

As you may or may not know, SU! had to switch suppliers for a die-cutting machine (still being designed &/or quality tested), dies and embossing folders.

 

For whatever changes are still upcoming, we still have no idea of this timeframe.

 

The following info is directly from Stampin' Up! website:

 

Here are a few relevant reminders about the die-cutting and embossing product line changes:

  • All 3D embossing folders (previously named Dynamic) will be produced by our new supplier and made in the new style.
  • All new 3D embossing folders (denoted with a “new” icon in the catalog) will be available to order beginning June 4, 2019.
  • No carryover 3D embossing folders will be available to order beginning with the catalog launch but we will let you know when they are available to order.
  • Keep in mind that with the new supplier the folders are manufactured differently; this means they’ll look a little different and the way you use the new style will be a little different than how you used the old style.

 

We are introducing a new 3D Embossing Folder Plate to work with our new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders). Edit: this item is now available--but NOT IN the catalog. #149658

 

3-D embossing folder plate

 

How to Use the New Plate

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in 21 mm gap machines (similar to the machine we used to offer). The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.

To create your emboss sandwich:

  • Use a die-cutting & embossing machine platform as a base; no matter which machine you’re using, use the standard platform which comes with your machine.
  • Use the 3D Embossing Folder with your paper in the middle.
  • Then use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate on top.

Given the differences in machines and platforms, you may still have to add a shim to get your desired embossing results. (You can also spritz your paper before embossing to maximize your embossed impressions.)

Without the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate, you will need to use several shims with the Standard Cutting Pad in your 3D embossing folder sandwich, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use. Most machines will need between three to five sheets of cardstock to shim. Please be careful in how you shim; start out with fewer sheets first, then add sheets to get your desired results. Stampin’ Up! will not be responsible to replace products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine.

 

 

If you have ANY QUESTIONS about any of this at all, please let me know!

 

Again--have a wonderful weekend!

Daisy Lane--Can't Wait!!

 

Happy Donut Day people!!!

 

I found out yesterday it's National Donut Day today!

 

How are YOU celebrating?? :D

I don't have any here. :/

 

 

We have a beautiful new stamp set Daisy Lane on pg 23 that's fabulous for a few reasons:

  1. It coordinates with our previous year's/current Daisy Delight stamp set (pg 96) and Daisy Punch.
  2. It coordinates (and is bundled with to save 10%) a NEW MEDIUM Daisy Punch!
  3. It has a really pretty mix of fonts. (Are you big on fonts? I LOVE words! And fonts are a big draw for me.)

 

 

I already showed you a couple cards with this set on my Live! a week ago...

 

I had been playing with it along with our new In Colors, and I designed a really cool card that used an embossing folder that I suddenly thought I saw had retired!

 

:(

I was so sad.

I can't/don't--to the best of my ability--show you stuff that you CAN'T have.

 

Well.......I double checked after someone else used it for their swap at my Dazzling Demos Team meeting last night.

 

 

IT'S IN THE NEW CATALOG!!!!!

WOOHOO!!!!!

 

 

So I'm here to celebrate that--AND tell you that I.CANT.WAIT for my new Medium Daisy Punch to come in my order!!!!!

 

(We got the stamp set FREE at OnStage in Minneapolis.....dying here WAITING for the other coordinating punch!!)

 

 

So here it is...with the new Rococo Rose.

 

Daisy Lane, Daisy Punch, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

The folder is Layered Leaves.

And it IS....wait.

 

Hmmm.

Well, this is embarrassing--but I guess as good a time as any to announce and explain something.

 

Um. This folder is NOT available right now.

 

Explanation--another blogpost to follow:

Do you recall SU! is in a transition period with our die cutting machine?

 

Negotiations with the previous supplier didn't go as well as they hoped before the transition.

 

Our current supplier will be making our folders and dies, etc.

 

And the 3-D folders that carried over from the previous catalog are not available in the new style yet.

 

:/ I'm sorry.

I just tried all the carryover folders--making sure I understood what I was reading correctly. 

 

So--any of the Terracotta Tile colored folder images (pg 198-199) in the catalog that DON'T have an N (new) next to them, aren't available again yet.

 

The Purple Posy colored images are good.

 

...which is somewhat ironic, cuz the Purple Posy ink pad and refills are NOT available.

 

Some of the pads/refills are foamy.

Mine is fine, but there were enough defective that SU! had to pull them while fixing the problem.

 

 

Ok, so this was supposed to be an EXCITING POST!!

And now I have to make sure you're informed!

 

To recap some of these announcements--AND give more info, I'll be posting again shortly.

 

 

IF YOU HAVE the Layered Leaves folder already, YAY!! :D

 

And I STILL.CANT.WAIT to get my Medium Daisy Punch!!! :D

 

 

Have a fabulous day & weekend!!
