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. 😂😂

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge: In Style

Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road.  Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days.  What in the world would we do without WiFi?

Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use.  Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The Details:

  • Stamp it.  Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
  • Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card.  Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they  belong.  Embellishments should add a balance to the card.  But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card.  You’ll feel off kilter.
