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: A Sketch

Today’s card is special not because it’s a sketch for the Stamp Ink Paper card challenge, but because it was a special order for an old friend I was once deployed with.  He saw a set of custom coffee mugs I made for my brother and his bride for their one year anniversary and asked if I could make a set of mugs for his brother and sister-in-law.

 These are the coffee mugs my friend ordered.

These are the one’s I made for my brother’s one year anniversary.  

Wow! I was very happy when I found out this week’s challenge was a sketch.  I really miss sketches a whole lot.  What kind of challenges do you prefer?  Sketch or Images as inspiration?  Join us this week at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge.

The Details:

  • Cut, Stamp, Punch:  It’s one of the quick methods to quickly make a card.
  • Less is more.  Seriously, I don’t know where to begin to describe how easy it is to make your own handmade card.
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used a retired piece of DSP as the background, but you can use our new designs or some of your own.
  • Heart Punch!  If you didn’t get the heart punch when it retired, don’t worry, you can use one of the smaller hearts from the Sweet & Sassy framelits dies.  If you want to add an embellishment put a rhinestone on the upper right side of the heart.

Stamp Ink Paper: Graduation

I read a post the other day on a crafting Facebook page and it said that a lady asked if she could leave her crafting supplies at a demonstrator’s home.  The demonstrator thought it was a strange request, so she asked the lady, please tell my why you want to do that.  This was the lady’s response summarized because I can’t remember word-for-word, “I bought all the supplies for make cards I like, but it seems too many others make cards that are too much work and I just can’t make them.  Well, my friends, I took to heart what the lady said.  Why?  Because, like the lady, I don’t like making complicated cards either.  Hence, why my cards are so often simple and so easy to reproduce by anyone!  It’s all about cut, stamp, adhere and done! 

If you don’t have a graduate to make and give this card to there are many more sentiments that can be used instead.  Maybe like Happy Birthday and instead of 2017, put the year of their birth…now that will go over well to anyone who is age conscious. LOL

Although this card was designed for the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, I was on a mini-vacay to Reno, Nevada and I completely got my dates all twisted by thinking Sunday was Saturday and Monday was Sunday, I missed the dead-line and missed out on posting my card.  However, I’m entering this card into the players pool knowing I can not win, but can show off my card.  So, play along side me this week at the Stamp Ink Paper Card Challenge

The Details:

  • Die-cut with Big Shot.  Our Large Letter Framelits will never go out of style for any occasion that revolves around numbers and you don’t even need electricity.  Run them through your Big Shot and boom! You’re all done!
  • Congratulations!  The sentiment used is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and I aligned it with my handy dandy Stamp-a-Ma-Jig thingy (LOL).  It’s perfect for making things straight!
  • Easy Stick Numbers:  Due to the thickness of the Gold Glimmer paper, I used the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets for the number to make ensure they adhered to the black cardstock.  It works like a charm.
