Making Banners with Memories and More card packs

https://www.stampinup.com/products/hand-penned-memories-and-more-card-pack?demoid=2095650
Our Memories & More Card Packs are great for cardmaking and scrapbooking, but there is even more you can do with these double-sided printed cards—like create fabulous home décor! 
Our concept artist used the card pack and a variety of other annual catalog products to create this cheery banner—which would be perfect to hang in a stamp studio, bedroom, or any other room that could use some brightening and fun designs. 
You could even add photos to your banner to display them in a fresh, new way—or as a way to capture memories. Wouldn’t something like this be great for wedding reception or baby shower décor? Tip: If your photo colors clash with the Memories & More color combo, print them in black and white or sepia and they’ll blend right in!

Stamping for Beginners

https://www.stampinup.com/products/biggest-wish-photopolymer-stamp-set-(english)?demoid=2095650
Did you know you can use our clear blocks as stamps? It’s a fun way to add some simple color to each project and great way to get beginner stampers hooked. We used differently sized blocks, but the same four ink colors on all three cards: Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, Polished Pink, and Night of Navy.
For the Happy Birthday card, our artist dabbed Clear Block C on a Pale Papaya ink pad and used it as a stamp to create a textured background on the card. You can also use clear blocks to create a pattern, like on the Hallo card, stamped multiple times with Clear Block G. Or copy the Merci Mon Amie card’s large background, made using Clear Block H. Just give your customers five minutes and they will fall in love with the technique.
We love creating unique effects with all sorts of products! How have you used a Stampin’ Up! product unconventionally? Share all your fun creations on social media!

Pick Your Pieces

What different creations can you come up with using a few of the same base supplies? We know you’re up for the challenge, but here are three examples using the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set.
In addition to the stamp set, these three cards all used Basic White, Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Soft Sea Foam Cardstock; Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, and Shaded Spruce Classic Stampin’ Pads; and a bit of Linen Thread.
On the Merci bien card, we stamped on the Basic White Cardstock before cutting the piece at a diagonal. Then we layered the So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam pieces behind and stamped the sentiment on the Petal Pink Cardstock (which we repeated on the other two cards as well).
For the Veel geluk samen card, we die cut the macramé plant holder from So Saffron Cardstock and stamped the plant image on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Next, we stamped the plant image on Soft Sea Foam with Shaded Spruce ink and die cut before assembling.
And finally, the Du hast mir sehr geholfen card has the Basic White Cardstock piece cut into three strips. We stamped different pots on So Saffron Cardstock in Calypso Coral and Mango Melody ink and die cut them. Then we stamped the plant image in Shaded Spruce ink on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and die cut that as well.
There are so many wonderful creations you can make using just those supplies. Give it a try and share your cards on social media.

Art in Bloom Step-by-Step

CASUAL
Embossing Folders give you a fast way to add texture and depth to cardstock, and the process is so easy! Simply enclose your paper inside the folder and run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Embossing is relatively inexpensive and adds an extra element of tactile interest to your cards for extra enjoyment!
This embossing folder has a hybrid design that combines two steps into one, and we think you’re going to love it. The coordinating dies fit inside the embossing folder so it can cut and emboss at the same time! Ta da! See them in action here!
To create our casual Art in Bloom Card, emboss a piece of Pool Party Cardstock using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder—this time without the dies. Let the embossed cardstock be the centerpiece of this easy-to-make card. Add the label, some die-cut flowers, and a Baker’s Twine bow and you have a card that you can duplicate in multiple colors. Simply switch up the sentiment and use it for almost any occasion!
AVID
We stepped up our second card by adding two-step stamping and die-cutting using both the Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Bloom Dies in the Bloom Die Bundle. Such a timesaver and the technique is so clean and easy.
The Magenta Madness and Granny Apple Green inks really pop against the Pool Party Cardstock, don’t you think? A light dusting of Genial Gems completes this card and adds just the right amount of bling.
ARTFULLY AVID
Our final card features the emboss resist technique for a painterly look that appears difficult but is in fact quite simple to achieve. Stamp the image in VersaMark ink, add White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and heat emboss tool. Then, using a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber, apply ink to your image, varying the pressure as you go to create variations in color depth. That’s it! We also added a sunshine-y floral center using Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, then finished with ethereal-looking vellum leaves. Gorgeous!

Sweet and #SimpleStamping

#SimpleStamping is a great way to introduce everyone to stamping. And these sweet and simple cards are great examples of how you can create your own #SimpleStamping cards.
All three cards use one stamp set—the Garden Birdhouses Stamp Set—and yet each card uses a different technique to create a unique style. Explore the stamp sets in your new annual catalog and plan three simple cards that you can share in your upcoming events or online with #SimpleStamping in the caption.
Each card features only two ink pads and one or two colors of cardstock. The Birthday Wishes card is the simplest with just one color of cardstock and a couple of images, all stamped on a single layer. The Hello card uses more images, layers, and a punch. We even customized the punch shape to fit the sentiment a little better—all it took was a couple of snips with our trusty Paper Snips. And lastly, the third card has some additional color added in, which is easy to do with a set of Watercolor Pencils.
