The new eclipse technique

Have you seen the new creative trend lately?  If you like to go on Pinterest, there are many samples for this new eclipse technique.  I loved the look and decided to try it out myself.  The demonstrators on my team that attended my monthly team meeting in September tried it as well.  They loved it.  I gave them a challenge to show me their versions and await their sample before we chose a winner!! The best card gets a prize!!!  I'll get my girls to pick out the winner since I'm sure the samples will all be amazing.  I am blessed with such talented, sweet demonstrators on my team.  Love to host those monthly meetings.  I anticipate for that monthly date night with these girls. If you would like to try the eclipse technique you can host a party with me or follow the steps below.  Here is a glimpse of the final product.  I used the hostess merry patterns stamp set that we have on promotion.  You can earn it for FREE too, just ask me for your hostess code and compile orders in September and October.   You can combine both months too:)  See the promotions details HERE.

Step 1

Stamp images on a piece of card stock.

I used cherry cobbler and old olive ink with the hostess stamp set Merry Patterns.

Step 2

Chose a word and place the Large letters framelits #141712 on your piece of stamped card stock.  Note you could do this technique with the large numbers framelits as well #140622.  The trick is that your letters need to be big to have an amazing affect.  The large letters in the annual catalogue are perfect for that.

Step 3

Pass your letters and card stock image in the big shot machine. Set aside the letters and adhere your card stock like the image below.

Step 4

This is an important step!  To have the best effect use the foam adhesive strips.  Those are thicker and will provide height to your letters.  If you use regular dimensionals, the letters won't have as much of the eclipse effect.

Step 5

Adhere the foam adhesive letters to the card, where they were cut out.  Shift them slightly to the right, just a "touch".  This creates that eclipse shadow.  And voila!  In my card below, I stamped the greeting "Merry Christmas" with the archival basic black ink.

I hope you enjoyed this new technique!   Don't forget to ask for your hostess code to earn this beautiful stamp set for FREE.  And if you shop with me, I have a VIP customer perk, you get to accumulate points for FREE products!!  Happy stamping!

Sneak peek in color #1 = Berry Burst

I'm so excited that June 1st is just around the corner.  I've been waiting for this date all month long, it's the launch of the new stampin up 2017-2018 catalogue.  As a demonstrator, we get to play with the pre order but that is not enough for me… hi hi hi… I have a huge list of products that I want so cannot stand the wait…. Today I wanted to introduce you to one of the new 2017-2019 in color, Berry burst.  I've used the coordinating dsp with it.  The new in colors are also available in markers.  I used the berry burst marker to color the image from the new stamp set crafting forever.  This stamp set is the dream stamp set for crafters and it's also available to you, my french customers.  It contains 9 rubber stamps and includes a couple of crafty greetings.

The greeting in this card comes from another new stamp set.  Here I used the french version, beaute de l'orient, It is also available in English, Eastern Beauty.  I love the circular greetings that are perfect to go around circle images.

Products used in this card are listed below.  I didn't want to use retired products therefore was limited in my choices until my big order arrives!  I cannot wait.  If you want to play with new products email me!  I'm having a launch kick off party on June 1st.

I hope you enjoyed one of the new in colors  and that you are excited to see my next in color card! Happy stamping!

Happy national scrapbooking day!

I'm a little early, but May is just around the corner!  May is national scrapbook month! This Saturday so happens that I'm hosting my spring fling scrapbooking day! Although, I wasn't planning on showing sneak peeks prior to the event, I have two new  openings… so if you want to attend let me know:) I love scrapbooking.  It's a great way to get together with friends and socialize while preserving memories.  I included in my guests goodie bag a journaling pen.  I think writing down the events of that special page is just so memorable for the person reading it. I used Stampin up! retired 12 x12 linen album.  I love to decorate my albums and always put a twist on things and add an extra technique.  You might want to check on the retired list and the clearance rack.  Stampin up always has great deals.  The clearance rack contains new items at a very good price.  See my link below.

My album contains products that are moving forward in the new 2017-2018 catalogue and some items are retiring.  The pop of pink specialty dsp is on the retiring list.  I loved the combination of black, white, gold and pink designs it contains. I'm sad to see that the so detailed thinlits dies are retiring as well.  I loved the detailed it brought to my cards and pages.  Here is one of the cards I made using these thinlits.  Click HERE. If you were to see my album up close, you would notice the glitter on my ferns from the butterfly basics stamp set. I used the wink of stella in clear for that  shine, glittery image. I love that stuff, wish it came in bigger containers!!!!

When I attended the on stage event in Amsterdam, I learned a new term = fussy cutting!!! So I detailed cut out my ferns since no thinlits exist for these.  I hope my guests will like fussy cutting 🙂

So if you want to participate this weekend or want the class to go, please email me.  I have two spots that opened up! You are welcome to forward my message to a friend:)

Details below:

If you are a scrapbook lover just like me, you don’t want to miss my spring fling Stamp-a-rama. We will be making a 12×12 album, special cover Kim style. This fun day includes an album, 12 pages and protectors, a large goodie bag with all your products and catered lunch/snacks.  Save the date:  April 29thfrom 9 to 4pm. Places are limited. I’ll be hosting in my home.  Total fee is $99.  If you want this class to go cost is $140 (includes shipping) for pick up $125.

I’m so excited, hope you can join me.  

A picture is worth a thousand words, but the memories are priceless….

If you can't make it this Saturday then check my next big event listed below! You don't want to miss a fun day of stamping with products from the new 2017-2018 annual catalogue!

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

Out with the old, in with the new

This weekend, I took the time to gather from my studio all the retiring items  that Stampin up! released in their retired list. I’ve challenged myself to create projects with these items before  you  start ordering from the New Stampin up! catalog at the beginning of June.  If you want me to reserve a copy of the new catalogue, simply send me an email.  It’s very dear to me to have a copy for my customers.   I’ve also already ordered products from the new catalogue and needed to make room for my new goodies.  This is one of the perks from attending on stage and all demonstrators will also be able to order in May.  We are so excited to have this opportunity to make cute projects for you before the official release!

Today, I chose the Help me grow stamp set #140764. This was the one stamp that I was most upset when I saw the list. But on the positive side, I also ordered in my pre order something exciting and similar.  Therefore, sometimes you have to let go of certain things as better things are ahead🙂  The stamp set coordinates with the Rose Garden Thinlits #140619. 

I also used the gold wink of stella glitter brush #141898 for the center of my flowers.  This item is also retiring.  But the clear wink of stella #141897 that I used on my petals is not retiring, thankfully!  It brings a glitter to your project.

The basic pearls will return but in a different format.  Therefore, you will also find these on the retired list #199247.  I added three on my card to balance my project.

My color combo consisted of pool party, very vanilla and crushed curry.  It’s a beautiful combo that you will see in the new catalogue.  By the way, demonstrators get their new catties before customers.  Another perk of being a demonstrator!  I initially joined for the discount 10 + years ago but realized there were so many other perks.  If you’d like more details, please feel free to email me.  If you join in May, you can pick items from the new catalogue for your starter kit.  That’s $165 of product for only $135.  No tax, no shipping:)

here is another of my samples using the help me grow stamp set:) 

 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my help me grow cards and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

Exciting news!

I've been missing posting on my blog.  But the truth is, I've been busy accomplishing an event on my bucket list.  I was in Europe visiting Switzerland and Amsterdam.  I attended a 3 day Stampin up! event in Amsterdam. Visiting the place my mother was born was a dream come true and finding out part of my heritage also.  Stampin up has brought on so many positives in my life since I joined 10 and half years ago.  The friendships will always remain number 1.  On this trip and event, I can confirm I have new friends from all over the world:)

Here are a couple of pics from my time visiting Amsterdam! 

For my card below, I used one of my favorite retiring colors, mint macaroon.  I've attached the list of retiring products.  Some have discounts up to 50% off.  The sale started on Monday, and already products are running out!!!  It saddens me that some of my favorite products are retiring.  But to console myself, I have the new 2017-2018 catalogue and it contains so many new and exciting products.  Plus the layout of the new catalogue is amazing.  Email me to reserve your copy!

The list of products used is noted below. One of the first techniques I learned when I started stamping is called sponging. The best color to sponge with is soft suede. 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my mint macaron card and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

So succulent love

So we spring into April shortly. There are not too many days left before Sale-a-bration is over.  Did you get all the FREE exclusive products that you wanted? The good news is that the occasion's catalogue doesn't end until May 31st.  On Wednesday, I'll be showcasing in my studio new techniques with the so succulent bundle.  Here is a sneak peek.  Although the succulent garden dsp has many wonderful colors, I only highlighted a selected few to keep my cards monochromatic.
My 4 different designs might look similar but I've highlighted different techniques.
I also made a cute mini magazine holder to store the cards and envelops. It's a perfect hostess gift.
Kim's favorite product:
My favorite product used to make these cards is definitely the stitched shapes framelits that coordinate with the layering squares, circles and ovals framelits dies.
How to make the colored paste?
To view how I have created the mint macaroon paste, click HERE.
