Retired Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop: Fourth of July

Welcome to the very first blog hop made up of members from the Retired Stampin’ Up! Products for Sale Facebook page.  Today’s theme is Fourth of July and every project is made with retired Stampin’ Up! products.  We are very excited to show you our creations and hope to make our hops something that you will follow each month.

As a military Veteran, I’m VERY proud of being American.  As an avid stamper, I love any stamp set that has the American flag.  I also enjoy clean and simple cards that anyone can make.  Often a simple stamped image can speak volumes and I think my card with just the colored in flag oozes patriotism.

The Details:

  • One continuous stamped image.  Do you think the stamped image is one stamped image?  Nope, it sure isn’t.  It looks like one continuous stamp because I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images and give the grass as if it’s one stamp.  I love the Stamp-a-ma-jig and how it can help you line up stamps on wood blocks.
  • Make an image pop.  Since today’s blog hop is dedicated to the Fourth of July, I wanted to add emphasis to the American flag by coloring in only the flag.  That’s the focus of my card and it’s why I didn’t stamp any sentiment.  The Red, White, and Blue speaks for itself. 

You can continue to hop from blog to blog from the line-up below to see all the projects.  Please feel free to leave comments as you hop along the way.  We hope to see you again next month!

Fellow consultant Brittany’s TRUE STORY made me giggle.
Reverse Regimen
She washed her face (with R+F products of course) before dinner,
at the table her husband asked,  “Do you have makeup on right now?”
She said, “No, why?”  That’s when he said, “Wow, the products really do work!”
She said he hardly noticed when she got a short haircut and died it brown. 😂😂

Pals Spring Catalog Favorites Blog Hop: Hearts A Flutter

Thank you for joining us for the first Pals Blog Hop of 2013!  Today the Stampin’ Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to new Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Spring Catalog.  We hope you find inspiration and ideas for using the new stamps, papers and accessories.

 You should have just left stop number14 on the Pals Hop – Claire Crotteau-Hutt at Stamp Paper Scissors.  If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

There are many items I fell in love with in the Spring Catalog, but will show you the three items that ranked at the top.  The first is the Tea Lace Paper Doilies because they come pre-cut and ready to stamp on, glue on, or color in.  They are so delicate and dainty they remind me of the doilies my grandmom (Mi Nena) used to crochet.

My mom has also made many doilies for me and they look so close to the Tea Lace.  She makes me different colors to match my furniture and they will certainly become heirlooms that I will pass down to my son.  Well, maybe his wife… or daughters… LoL.

My second favorite item is the Hearts a Flutter stamp set, which you can purchase with a framelits die as a bundle.  I punched out a tiny red heart from the Two Step Owl and it’s oh so heavenly perfect for my Valentine. =)

Although my love for clean & simple cards is natural for me, I couldn’t resist my third favorite item… the silky smooth two-tone 1-1/4″ ribbon.  You gotta feel it with your fingers to appreciate the softness in the material.

Stamp Set:  Hearts a Flutter (C129252)
Embossing Folder:  Adorning Accents (125601)
Paper: Basic Gray  (121044), Very Vanilla (101650), Whisper White (100730)

Framelits Dies:  Hearts A Fluttere (130159) Bundled with Stamp Set (C131097)
Ink: Basic Gray (126981)
Ribbon: 1-1/4″ Basic Gray/Basic Black Two-Tone
Paper Doilies:  Tea Lace (129399)
Paper Punch:  Two Step Owl (118074)

Pals December Blog Hop: Celebrations

We’re so glad you could join us for the final Pals Blog Hop of 2012!  Today the Stampin’ Pretty Pals are excited to celebrate all of our favorite occasions of the year!  And what’s a little celebration without some sparkle?!

You’ve probably hopped over from Nicole Watt at Impressions By Nicole, I’m stop number 20 on the Pals Hop and I’m glad you hopped in!  I’ll help you “hop along” from blog to blog where you’ll find great ideas for Stampin’ Up! products from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you’ll be back on track.

I chose to make a Paper Bow with a bit of a sparkle.  To make the bow I used our stunning, no-mess Glimmer Paper in Red and Silver.  To give it a peppermint touch like a candycane, I used a few slivers of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper.  You too can make this gorgeous handmade bow in just a matter of minutes and you can click here to download the step-by-step instructions.  Remember, it doesn’t have to be Christmas to make a bow.  They work wonders on birthday presents, Valentine’s gifts, and Anniversary’s.

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Sherrie Gross at Stampin Sunshine, stop number 21 on the Pals Celebrations Blog Hop!  Thanks for “hopping” by!
