Evergreen Elegance Bundle

Celebrate the season with the beautiful Evergreen Elegance Bundle. Which season? Any season! Add a burgeoning bough of pine, a sea of snow-capped trees, or a blanket of fresh snowfall to your classic Christmas creations. For warm weather projects, add a flourishing forest of pines, a summer night sky scattered with stars, or a little mountain lake. From festive phrases to nature-inspired images, the Evergreen Elegance Bundle has a little bit of everything for any occasion! 
Sale-A-Bration is LIVE!
Which means you are inches away from earning a free stamp set or Designer Series Paper when you make a purchase of $50 or more before shipping and tax. There’s no better time to buy the Evergreen Elegance Bundle! With Sale-A-Bration being the best time to shop for supplies. Hold a heat-embossing class of your own and use white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powder pack to create snow-capped trees. Or, have a workshop with me and learn how to mix multiple shades of green onto a single tree-shaped stamp with Sponge Daubers. Check out the coordination from July’s Paper Pumpkin kit with the Evergreen Elegance bundle. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well, almost. It’s never too early to start preparing your Christmas projects, right? Along with the launch of Sale-A-Bration, now the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog is live and you can order today! The Evergreen Elegance Bundle coordinates with countless Christmas products from the stamp-tacular seasonal catalog. Our top picks? The Painted Christmas Suite (item 156274), the Whimsy & Wonder Suite (item 156276), and the Peaceful Place Suite (item 156277).

Simple Stamping with Delicate Dahlias

If you are looking for gorgeous florals to add to your stamp collection, the Delicate Dahlias Sale‑A‑Bration Stamp Set is an excellent choice. And with just a $100, you can get this two-step Distinktive stamp set for FREE.
You may want to imagine these dahlia images as dinner plate-sized blooms—because that’s how big some varieties grow in real life. They add instant beauty to any garden landscape with their candy colors, and because these flowers bloom into September in the Northern hemisphere, they can be stamped with abandon to create cards in warm autumn tones. (Our friends in the South Pacific start planting dahlias in September, so their choice may be fresh, springtime hues!)
This month’s “simple stamping” projects were a cinch!
You Inspire Me Card: Add a layer of Basic White Cardstock behind the stamped panel for extra dimension and pop.Du inspirierst mich Card: Stamp the line art flower multiple times to create a fantastic, intricate-looking background pattern.Tu m’inspires Card: Stamp off Pacific Point ink to achieve lighter and darker tones for the Distinktive two-step image.

CASE = Copy and Share Everything

Are you shy about CASEing? Seeing what Stampin’ Up! artists copy and share might help you feel a little more at ease and give you the courage to start employing this handy method for jumpstarting your own creativity. We suggest copying the layout, color scheme, or technique, but you can copy anything that makes you feel like pulling out your crafting supplies and starting on a project!
For the Je souris à la vie card, we CASEd the card’s eye-catching layout with its lovely layers and accents. We also feature a great technique that you can add to your papercrafting knowledge base: Use cornstarch or baby powder on the back of stickers when you want to remove the stickiness. This makes it easy to pop them up using Stampin’ Dimensionals. (We love trying new things!)
We CASEd a breathtaking color combo (Basic Black, Basic White, gold, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent) to create the Wunderbar card. Isn’t that color combination striking? We also used the new 5-5/16″ x 4″ (13.5 x 10.2 cm) Flower Market Die to make a perfect layer, allowing you to enhance a card front with lattice-like intricacy and detail. As you can see, we added cardstock scraps to the back to pull in extra color and create interest. You’ll love that effect in your cards!
On the Gecondoleerd card, we CASEd stamping and coloring on Designer Series Paper, and we think the Fresh Freesia and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends look lovely together! And our new Pale Papaya & White 1/2″ (1.3 cm) Ribbon adds just the right touch of softness to complete the card.

Q: What do you get when you cross a sheep with a porcupine? A: A sheep that can knit its own sweaters.

CASUAL
Fühl dich geknuddelt Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm)
For our casual project, we used just a few products to create a fun, simple card that anyone can make. Stamp and die-cut the sheep, add a little color with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends, create a dimensional background with 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips of Basic Gray Cardstock, then dapple the “sky” with Resin Stars. Baa-adorable.
AVID
Tu es supeeerbe Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm) 
We fancied up the Avid card by embossing the Basic Gray Cardstock Strips with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Our special trick? Add a little White Craft ink to the folder to leave cloudy impressions on the embossed paper. 
ARTFULLY AVID
You’re Amazing Card (4-1/4″ x 5 1/2″) (10.5 x 14.9 cm)
For our final card we used Blending Brushes to add Basic Gray and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to a piece of Smoky Slate Cardstock. Once the inks were blended, we spritzed the cardstock with water, then splattered it with White Craft ink before cutting the paper into 1″ x 3″ (2.5 x 7.6 cm) strips. This time we used the inked embossing folder technique on the card base, giving it a marbled look that contrasts nicely with the darker cardstock strips beneath.

Color Challenge with Global Design Project

I am for the first time participating in the color combination challenge with Global Design Project website. The color combination is Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana and Polished Pink they are all Stampin’ Up! colors. I started with the card stock colors first then dry embossing one of the layers. Next I used punches: LOVELY LABELS PICK A PUNCH for the polished pink layer, then LABEL ME LOVELY PUNCH for the night of navy layer and TAILORED TAG PUNCH for the coastal cabana “happy birthday” stamped in Night of Navy ink. There also are two layers of gold and a few iridescent sequins from the EXPRESSIONS IN INK EPHEMERA PACK. This makes my card a 10 layer card! Wow! I love all the layers, what do you think?
