Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Art Gallery stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first, third, and (sometimes the fifth) Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Betty's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you've seen Mike's project and are ready to CASE!

It's been a long while since I've hopped with the Stamp Review Crew and I'm excited to be back to sharing with you!

When I look at the Annual Catalog and the Mini Catalogs I'm always drawn to the floral image stamp sets.  Then I ask myself:  "Why on earth do I need yet another floral stamp set???"  Well, this time I got sucked in to the wonderful floral potential of the Art Gallery stamp set. 

ArtGallery_HappyBirthday

This card begins with a panel of Basic White cardstock.  Petal Pink ink was applied to the center area of the panel using a Blending Brush.  Then the panel was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  

The large flower image is a two-step stamping process.  The more solid image was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Flirty Flamingo ink.  Then the more detailed image was stamped over the Flirty Flamingo image using Poppy Parade ink.  The leaf image was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Old Olive ink.  The flower and leaf images were die cut using the corresponding dies from the Floral Gallery dies.  The flower was adhered to the Basic White embossed panel using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then the leaf was adhered to the panel so that the base of the stem pointed toward the lower right corner of the card front.  A group of the smallest of the Gold Glitter enamel dots were clusted at the flower center.  A piece of Fine Art ribbon was adhered to the panel with the left end of the ribbon ending 3/4 of the way across the panel and the right end folded under and adhered to the back of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of a slightly larger panel of Poppy Parade and then adhered at the center of the Flirty Flamingo card front.

The "Happy Birthday" sentiment was stamped on a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and die cut with the larger postage stamp rectangle from the Floral Gallery dies.  The sentiment was adhered over the ribbon using Mini Glue Dots.

ArtGallery_HappyBirthday_Inside

The leaf image was stamped at the upper left corner of a panel of Basic White cardstock using Old Olive ink.  The large flower was stamped at the tip of the leaf stem using Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade inks as was used for the card front.  The sentiment comes from the Happy Thoughts stamp set (I just LOVE this stamp set!) and was stamped immediately below the flower image using Poppy Parade ink.  The panel was adhered, centered, at the inside sentiment area of the card base.

ArtGallery_HappyBirthday_Envelope

Finally, the leaf and flower images were stamped on the flap of the Basic White envelope using the same colors as before.

I hope you've been inspired by the project I made using the Art Gallery stamp set.  Card measurements and supplies are listed below.  If you've been traveling through the hop from the first stop, Mike Funke's Stampin' Syle blog, then you are finished with the hop as I'm the last stop.  However, if you entered the hop in the middle, just click here to move to the next stop.  OR if you are traveling backwards through the hop, then click here to see Betty's project.

Enjoy The Moment -- a little note...

Hi There!

One of the great things about teaching classes is spending time with a great group of people who enjoy some of the same things that you do.  With the pandemic, those get togethers could not happen.  However, my customers were adamant that I find a way to have my annual Christmas Card classes in November.  I gave it some serious consideration and figured out a way to make it happen while protecting my customers as much as possible. 

In the end, they needed to decide whether they were able to accept the risk.  Some decided that they needed to continue to quarantine, others felt that they could not wear a mask for that length of time, and some were just too nervous about going out and about.  And that's OK.  I understand.  I still had a great turnout for the classes and it was so wonderful to see folks I hadn't seen since March.  It didn't matter that we had to wear masks, it didn't matter that we couldn't hug or touch, it didn't matter that there might be a delay while a work table and supplies were sanitized.  It was so wonderful just to be together again:  to share, to laugh, to create.  

Needless to say, I needed to thank all those wonderful papercrafters.  Here's the card I made.

EnjoyTheMoment_ThankYouCard

I wanted to work a little outside my comfort zone to make a card that could be sent to a man or a woman.  It was a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I fought with the design for three days before I came up with a finished product I felt comfortable sending.

This card uses the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in the January - June Mini Catalog.  The stamp set features a number of seed pods -- I just wish I knew what they were. 

I stamped the tall triple seed pods on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then embossed the cardstock using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.  The embossed cardstock was adhered at the center of a slightly larger piece of Bumblebee cardstock and then adhered at the center of the Early Espresso card base.  A bunny bow of Bumblebee In Color ribbon was adhered just below the pods using a Mini Glue Dot.

Three other seed pods were each stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and colored with Stampin' Blends markers:

  • The two round seed pods were colored with LT Old Olive and LT Mango Melody
  • The flat topped pod was colored with LT Soft Suede, LT Crumb Cake, and Dark Crumb Cake
  • The "pea pod" was colored with Bronze, LT Soft Suede, and LT Mango Melody

The Very Vanilla cardstock was matted with slightly larger pieces of Early Espresso cardstock.  A piece of Bumblebee cardstock was stamped with "a little note..." using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the left end punched with the banner tail from the Banners Pick A Punch.  The banner was adhered behind the upper right side of the flat topped pod and then adhered near the upper right corner of the card front.  The "pea pod" was adhered near the lower right corner of the card front.  The two round seed pods was adhered slightly to the left of the previous two images using Stampin' Dimensionals.

EnjoyTheMoment_ThankYouCard_Inside

The tall triple pod image was stamped at the lower left side of a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The "Enjoy The Moment" sentiment was stamped next to the pods using Bumblebee ink.  The cardstock was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

EnjoyTheMoment_ThankYouCard_Envelope

I repeated the same process for the envelope front because I liked it so much!

So, what do you think?  Is this card "generic" enough to send to a guy or a gal?

A Return to Papercrafting

Hi Everyone!

It's been almost two years since I last posted and all I can say is that it's been a long two years.  

In August of 2019 I lost my Mom after a long battle with oral cancer.  She had never smoked--ever. 

The months before her death were very challenging for Mom and my family as we helped Mom to make difficult life transitions as she faced the end of her life.  Fortunately, my brothers and sisters and I were 100% supportive of each other which made doing all the things that needed to be done a whole lot easier to manage.  That doesn't mean that it wasn't hard -- it was.  It was very hard.  But we got through.

And at the very end, we were together as Mom passed from a world of pain to God's loving arms. One of my best memories of those last days was a group of us sitting around Mom's bed talking about current events and sharing stories.  My sister, Kathy, had recently reacquainted herself with crocheting and was making a blanket for her granddaughter.  My other sister, Beth, wanted something to do with her hands and went to Michael's to pick up a crochet hook and some yarn.  Kathy was working with Beth on basic stitches and then the Hospice nurse decided to get involved, too.  It was a comfortable atmosphere and Mom would have been tickled with the scene if she had been conscious.  The fun moments happened when my brother, Mike, a retired USN submariner, began adding his commentary on crocheting.  It seems that he learned to crochet when he was assigned to Fast Attack submarines during the times when the Russians and the US were playing hide and seek deep in the ocean.  The guys needed to have something quiet to do to keep their minds occupied when they weren't on station but had to maintain absolute quiet on the submarine.  Each sailor would make a section of the project and the sections would be sewn together to gift to a member of the crew at the end of the tour.  The things you learn...

During this time, I maintained my Stampin' Up! business, but at a much lower level of attention.  It was hard to go into my craft room to create when all I could think about was the hundreds of hours I had spent with my Mom papercrafting, taking classes, and attending trade shows.  It was a special time for the two of us and it was hard for her when her health gradually made doing those types of crafts impossible.  She still stayed involved by helping me with my designs and providing quidance when I would get stumped with a design.  Over time, even that became difficult for her, too.  It was a very difficult day when Mom sold her house and we had to disposition her craft room.

When my Dad died years ago, I knew that recovering from his loss would be hard, but I got through and could begin to get back to the "normal" routine in a few months -- mostly because I needed to be available for Mom.  For some reason, getting back to "normal" just didn't seem to happen after losing Mom.  My sister, Kathy, said that she read an article that losing the second parent is always hardest because now you have to face being on your own.  You never realize how much you take their presence and their support for granted until they are no longer there.  I am grateful for the presence and support of my husband, my children and their spouses, my grandchildren, my brothers and sisters and their spouses, my cousins, and a wide group of special friends.  But they aren't the same as parents.

I take comfort from the memories.  And many of those memories include all those other people in my support sphere.  I am very blessed.

In the last few months I began papercrafting again.  Up until that point, I had focused on quilting as the sewing brought me comfort -- it was one of the first skills my Mom taught me.  In the last couple of years I made more than 20 quilts.  Pretty crazy, but my family is not complaining.

Now that the papercrafting skills are dusted off, I am excited to share what I'm creating with you.

Stay tuned.

Stamp Review Crew -- Butterfly Gala

Stamp Review Crew blog banner

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first, third, and (sometimes the fifth) Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

(Copy And Share Everything)

For one reason or another, I've been making a few cards with the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  I'm not usually that wound up about butterflies; however, with a really versatile stamp set, coordinating punch, and fun coordination with Sale-A-Bration items, it's hard NOT to make butterfly cards.  I was sitting at my desk trying to cudgel my brain for an idea for another butterfly card for this blog hop when my husband came into my workroom to see what I was working on.  We talked about the project I needed to create for this blog hop and he wanted to know why my butterfly cards always look so "girly."  So I thought about it and decided I'd make a butterfly card that has a more masculine feel to it.  What do you think? 

ButterflyGala_TheGoodThings

This card begins with a bunch of "leaf" butterfly images (large and small) stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock using Mossy Meadow ink.  The butterfly bodies (large and small) were stamped over the Mossy Meadow butterflies using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The butterflies were punched from the cardstock using the Butterfly Duet punch.  The large butterflies were arranged on and adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, wingtip to wingtip, to cover the entire piece of cardstock [note that some parts of the butterflies may hang over the right and left edges of the cardstock].  The large butterfly antenna were stamped at the head of each butterfly using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then the butterflies that are overhanging the right and left edges of the cardstock were trimmed off using Paper Snips using the edge of the cardstock as a guide.  A strip of Vellum cardstock was adhered across the butterfly panel with the bottom edge of the Vellum 1" above the bottom edge of the panel and the right and left edges of the Vellum flush with the right and left edges of the panel [note that the adhesive was placed along the center width of the vellum.  A piece of Burlap ribbon was adhered over the center width of the Vellum using Mini Glue Dots with the right and left edges of the ribbon flush with the right and left edges of the Vellum/butterfly panel.

The Vellum/butterfly panel was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock.  A piece of Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine was wrapped around the panels and Burlap ribbon, knotted on the left and then tied into a bow.  A rolled up Mini Glue Dot was placed under the knot of the bow to hold it in place on the Burlap ribbon.  The panel was then adhered at the center of the Mossy Meadow card front.

The "The good things in life are better with you" sentiment was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Mossy Meadow ink.  The sentiment was die cut with the Big Shot using the 1-3/16" x 1-11/16" rectangle from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  The die cut sentiment was matted with a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock and then adhered over the Burlap ribbon with the right edge of the matted sentiment 1/4" from the right edge of the butterfly panel using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

ButterflyGala_TheGoodThings_Liner

Now I get to use up all the little butterflies that were stamped and punched out with the large butterflies used for the card front.

The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  The "So glad we are friends" sentiment, from the Incredible Like You stamp set, was stamped at the upper center of the liner using Mossy Meadow ink.  One of the littel butterflies was folded at the body to pull up the wings and adhered near the upper right of the sentiment using a rolled up Mini Glue Dot.  The small butterfly antenna was stamped at the head of the butterfly body using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

A piece of Burlap ribbon was adhered along the bottom edge of the liner using Mini Glue Dots.  Six small butterfly antenna were stamped on scraps of Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with Paper Snips leaving a tag below the bottom of the "v".  The butterfly antenna were adhered behind the small butterflies using Mini Glue Dots.  Then the butterflies were adhered along the Burlap ribbon using Mini Glue Dots [note that there will be overhang on the left and right ends of the ribbon--use Paper Snips to trim the overhang flush with the right and left edges of the liner.  The liner then adhered to the card base.

ButterflyGala_TheGoodThings_Envelope

And there were still some of the little butterflies left.  So they were adhered vertically along the left front edge of the Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  The small butterfly antenna was stamped at the head of each butterfly using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Of course, this envelope would NOT be a candidate for the postal service as the butterflies could come detached from the envelope front and jam up the sorter which would pretty much shred up the envelope and the card inside.  

It's been a while since I made a monochromatic card and I think this one has a bit of a tropical feel.  And my husband says it's definitely not "girly."

Card Measurements -- 

Basic Black:  4-1/8" x 5-3/8", 1-5/16" x 1-13/16"; Mossy Meadow:  4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2" along the 11" length; Very Vanilla:  2 @ 4" x 5-1/4", 1-1/2" x 2", 4-1/4" x 11"; Vellum:  1-3/4" x 4"; Burlap ribbon:  2 @ 4"; Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine:  16"

When you receive a new Stampin' Up! Catalog and you find a whole lot of great stuff you just HAVE to have, it's hard to pick one thing when you want to make something with all your new stuff.  Right?  Well that's what happened when I made this card.  And I included some Sale-A-Bration stuff, too!

ButterflyGala_ALittleNote

This card begins with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The Stitched Rectangle Framelit with the inner 2-1/4" x 3-9/16" rectangular cut was placed on the cardstock so that the top of the framelit is 5/8" from the top edge of the cardstock and the framelit is centered between the right and left sides of the cardstock.  Then the cardstock was die cut with the Big Shot.  (Be sure to save the piece removed from the center for stamping later.)  The cardstock was then placed in the Dot-To-Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and rolled through the Big Shot.

A piece of Highland Heather cardstock was die cut using two Stitched Rectangle Framelits placed together (one inside the other).  The outer framelit has a 2-5/8" x 3-15/16" inner cut and the inner framelit has the 2-1/4" x 3-9/16" inner cut (used for the Whisper White cardstock).  The resulting narrow frame was adhered to the opening in the embossed Whisper White cardstock using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive.  The piece removed from the center was then die cut with the 7/8" x 2-7/8" rectangular framelit.

A piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) was adhered behind the framed opening of the Whisper White cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  The 7/8" x 2-7/8" Highland Heather stitched rectangle was placed across the framed opening with the bottom edge of the die cut 1/2" above the inner edge of the frame.  A piece of Grapefruit Grove ribbon from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (Sale-A-Bration) was placed across the center of the rectangular die cut with the ends folded and adhered to the back of the Whisper White embossed cardstock.  The Whisper White cardstock was then adhered at the center of the Lemon Lime Twist card front.

The "a little note" greeting was stamped on the stitched rectangle removed from the Whisper White cardstock using Highland Heather ink and die cut with the 1/2" x 2-1/2" stitched rectangle framelit so that the "a" in the greeting is near the left edge of the die cut.  The die cut was adhered at the center of the Highland Heather die cut (over the ribbon) using Mini Glue Dots.

ButterflyGala_ALittleNote_Inset

One of the great things about the Butterfly Gala stamp set is the coordinating Butterfly Duet punch.  Another great thing is that the butterfly outline images in the stamp set are designed to line up--large and small versions--so that they align with the punch.  Woohoo!  The "realistic" butterflies image and large and small butterfly bodies were stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  In addition, the same large butterfly image was rough cut from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  All three butterflies were "colored" using Highland Heather, Grapefruit Grove, and Lemon Lime Twist inks using Sponge Daubers.  You can see those butterflies in the image above.  The pair of stamped butterflies were punched out with the Butterfly Duet punch.  The butterfly rough cut from the Designer Series Paper was also punched with the Butterfly Duet punch.  However, since the rough cut was too small to hold while being punched, I put a piece of Post-It Note behind the rough cut butterfly to be able to hold it while being punched.  

The large stamped butterfly was finger folded at the body to pull the wings up and adhered to the card front on top of the Designer Series Paper in the framed opening above the greeting using rolled up Mini Glue Dots.  The butterfly antenna was stamped above the butterfly body using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The small stamped butterfly was finger folded at the center and adhered to the right of the greeting using a rolled up Mini Glue Dot.

ButterflyGala_ALittleNote_Liner

The inside sentiment area of the card was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  A thin strip of Highland Heather cardstock was adhered behind the top edge of a strip of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and then adhered along the bottom edge of the liner.  The butterfly from the Designer Series Paper was finger folded at the center and adhered near the lower right corner of the liner above the paper strips.  The butterfly antenna was stamped above the butterfly using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

ButterflyGala_ALittleNote_Envelope

A piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper was adhered to the flap of the Medium Whisper White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim the paper to match the envelope flap.

As you can see, I packed quite a few items into this card.  And while you may think that this card is pretty complicated, it's really not.  I made this card with my stamp clubs in January and the consensus was that the design was pretty simple--it just had a lot of pieces.  Once they got a handle on where all the pieces fit, they enjoyed the fun colors and happy butterflies.  There are 3 more butterfly designs in this stamp set which means that you can have a great time creating fun color combinations for your butterflies.
