Stampin Stray Ducklings for the Guys!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! It’s June and we are celebrating the men in our lives! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog.

I picked the Brewed For You stamp set (#159087) and the Brewed Dies (#159092) for my beer loving husband, brother, nephew!!! You can save 10% when purchasing the Brewed For You Bundle (#159093). I started with a BasicBlack card base and added a layer of Crumb Cake stamped randomly with beer glasses in Basic Black.

The beer glasses were stamped in Basic Black on Basic White and the beer was stamped in Crushed Curry. Not being a beer drinker, I thought that was close! The foam and glasses were die cut and adhered to the front. The sentiment was from Artistically Inked stamp set (#154542).

Stampin Stray Ducklings June – New Catalog Blog Waddle!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! This month is actually May, but it feels like June!! Our projects feature new annual catalog products! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog.

I picked the Bottled Happiness stamp set (#158684) and the Vintage Bottle Punch (#158689), yes more flowers! You can save 10% when purchasing the Bottled Happiness Bundle (#158690). I started with a Basic White card base and added a layer of Starry Sky, a new 2022-2024 In-Color. Another Basic White layer for stamping the bottle and flowers. I did not stamp and punch the bottle, but I certainly could have done that.

The mostly foliage stamp was inked in Garden Green. The other stamp was colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Shaded Spruce, and Polished Pink. A double bow of Baker’s Twine (#155475) was added at the neck of the bottle. The sentiment was from the Art Gallery photopolymer stamp set (#158201) on a tag punched with the Banners Pick a Punch (#153608).

Stampin Stray Ducklings April Blog Waddle!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! This month our projects feature retiring annual catalog products! You may have arrived here from Debbie Widener’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog.

I picked the Pierced Blooms Dies (#154312)-now only $18.50, as I love to garden and still can’t play in the dirt. I picked the colors, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Fresh Freesia, and Gorgeous Grape for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. The dark flower centers are either Basic Black or Soft Suede. Fresh Freesia is a retiring In-Color. I started with a Flirty Flamingo card base and a layer of Basic White run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (#149653) in the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder (#152718)-only $7.20. The sentiment is from the In Bloom stamp set, which appears to be no longer available.

Welcome to our March Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring critters of all kinds!

You may have arrived here from Shirley’s blog. My card features the Ladybug Builder Punch(#157698) to create a bumblebee. This punch is a part of the Hello Ladybug Bundle(#157699).

The card base is Basic Black (11″ x 5-1/2″) with 2 pieces of the Hand-Penned DSP on it. The Hammered Metal (3D) Embossing Folder (#150646) gave the Daffodil Delight card stock a texture to resemble a honeycomb. The bumblebee was created with a Basic Black body and a layer of Daffodil Delight which was cut into stripes and vellum wings! The sentiment is from Pansy Patch.

Here is a picture of the card expanded showing the fun-fold and another little bumblebee!

Stampin Stray Ducklings February Blog Waddle!

Welcome to our monthly Blog Waddle! This month our projects celebrate love. You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Kim Baker’s blog.

I picked the Heart Punch Pack (#151292) and the PatternParty Host Designer Series Paper (DSP) (#155426) which is for hostesses with a qualifying party. You can purchase the DSP with.a qualifying order, too. I started with a Real Red card base using a fun-fold. Three score lines on the base and it is ready for the DSP. If not using an overall patterned paper, be sure to watch the direction of your paper. The sentiment is from the Always in My Heart stamp set (#158153).

I picked a second DSP pattern to add to the inside of the card. Another heart and another sentiment from the Always in My Heart stamp set. Check out the Annual Catalog and the fantastic new Mini-Catalog to make your qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Celebrating Birthdays!

Welcome to our 1st Paper Crafting Blog Hop of 2022 with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring projects for birthdays!

You may have arrived here from Sandra’s blog. She had a great project! My card features the Friendly Hello Bundle – yes BUNDLE – from the 2022 Sale-A-Bration brochure – yes Sale-A-Bration – meaning it’s free with a $100 order!! The bundle includes the Friendly Hello photopolymer stamp set and the Friendly Hello 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (DSP).

The card base is Basic White with a layer of the DSP on it. Then a smaller piece of Vellum Card Stock (#101856), stamped with images in Jet Black Stazon Ink (#101406) was added. This is the ink you want to use on porous surfaces, like vellum. Then I stamped the bird on a branch image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708) on Basic White and colored it lightly with alcohol markers. The sentiment from this wonderful SAB set is stamped in Pool Party. All images were adhered carefully with the adhesive hidden behind the solid pieces of the card. Three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for a little bling!

We are 2 weeks into Sale-A-Bration, time to look through the annual and mini catalogs and order what you must have and earn free products!
