Short & Sweet Saturday - Country Home


I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the upcoming Holiday Catalog, Country Home, for this week's Short & Sweet Saturday card. I just realized that I never made this month's Thank You card for my Monthly Host Code Giveaway! This month is sure getting away from me! This will be this month's card. I used the Faceted Gems on the "Thanks" oval on the jug.

I used the new Galvanized Metallic Paper with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, both from the Holiday Catalog. This paper is different from our foil paper. It has a matte finish, and the galvanized metallic look is on BOTH sides. I really love it being on both sides. I used the Country Lane Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog, too.

Dimensions:
  • Mint Macaron:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2"
  • Blackberry Bliss:  2-3/4" x 4-1/4"
  • Whisper White:  2-1/2" x 4" & scraps
  • Galvanized Metallic Paper:  1-1/2" x 5-1/4"
  • Country Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP):  3" x 5-1/4"
Instructions:
  1. Fold the Mint Macaron piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Cut off a 1/2" x 5-1/4" strip off of the DSP piece, and turn it over to show the Blackberry Bliss side. Attach the largest DSP piece onto the right side of the card front with the cotton design facing up, making sure the border around the top, right, and bottom of the piece is the same. Attach the narrow DSP strip to the left side of the card with the Blackberry Bliss side facing up, making sure the border around the top, left, and bottom of the piece is the same. Emboss the Galvanized Metallic Paper piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Attach the embossed piece to the left side of the card, over the space between the two DSP pieces.
  2. Stamp the jug stamp from the Country Home Stamp Set onto the bottom, center of the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Stamp the cotton bouquet stamp on top of the jug using the same ink pad. Color the jug in with the Smoky Slate Stampin' Write Combo Pack. Color the leaves with the Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Combo Pack. Color the flower with the Cajun Craze Stampin' Write Combo Pack. Color the berries with the Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Combo Pack. Color the brownish images with the Soft Suede Stampin' Write Combo Pack. Color the bottom of the cotton (along the leaves) with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends. Attach the piece to the center of the Blackberry Bliss piece, and attach it to the card, just right of center, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  3. Stamp the oval label stamp onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Memento Pad. Stamp the "Thanks" stamp onto the center of the oval using the same ink pad. Fussy cut the oval out, and attach it to the jug. Attach a small Blackberry Bliss dot from the Faceted Dots onto each end of the oval.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

The Country Home Stamp Set, Country Lane DSP, Galvanized Metallic Paper, and Tin Tile Embossing Folder will be available on September 5, 2018.

12 Weeks of Fall & Halloween 2018 - Week #1


I've been trying to get this video to work for the last couple of days! I actually had this recorded on Wednesday, but couldn't get it to work right in my editing software. I finally found out why my original video was working, but the video and audio weren't syncing in my video editing software. It's unbelievable how much I keep learning the longer I'm a demonstrator and running my blog. A few years ago, I wouldn't have guessed the stuff I would learn! It's kinda fun...well, at least it is once I figure out how to do it. LoL

I'm back to doing my 12 Weeks of Fall & Halloween! I did this in 2015 & 2016, but my busy schedule last year prevented me from doing them. I'm so glad to be able to offer this again this year. I plan for this to be an annual thing from now on. After this week, these projects will be on Wednesdays until Halloween. Below, you'll find the video on how to make my little treat bag.

The first project is a Halloween project. Stampin' Up!'s 2" x 8" Cellophane Bags are PERFECT for the nugget-style candy bars. They can actually hold more than the four I put in my treat bag. I also used a few products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog, along with the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies. 

DON'T FORGET! These dies are only available for a VERY limited time. They are apart of the Color Your Season Promotion, and they are available until August 31, 2018 or while supplies last...whichever comes first. Make sure to get these wonderful dies before they're gone forever! There is also a stamp set that bundles with them, called Blended Seasons. Both are available until August 31 or while supplies last, and can be purchased as a bundle @ 10% off. If you order the Blended Seasons Bundle and/or the Watercolor Pencils - Assortment 2 (that is also part of this promotion) from me, you'll receive my additional, exclusive special! To see the products, and find out about my exclusive special, CLICK HERE.

The items I used from the Holiday Catalog are the Spooky Sweets Bundle (Spooky Sweets Stamp Set & Spooky Bats Punch) and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper (DSP). Aren't they cute?

Don't forget about Bonus Days, too! For every $50 you place on an order from now until August 31, you'll receive a $5 off coupon to redeem in September! So, buy the dies this month (with at least $17 in additional product), and use your $5 coupon when you purchase the Spooky Sweets Bundle & Toil & Trouble DSP! Buy the Blended Seasons Bundle (which includes the stamp set & the dies) from me, and automatically get a coupon PLUS my Exclusive SpecialOrder the Watercolor Pencils - Assortment 2, and get even more!





Dimensions:
  • Whisper White Cardstock:  5" x 3-1/2" (bag topper & bats)
  • Toil & Trouble DSP:  3" x 4-1/4" (bag topper) and (4) 3" x 1" (candy bar bands)
  • 2" x 8" Cellophane Bags: (1)


If You Can't See the Supply List Below, You'll Need to Go to the Original Post. Spooky Sweets Bundles, Spooky Sweet Stamp Set, Spooky Bats Punch, and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper can't be ordered until they're available on September 5, 2018.

RemARKably Creative Blog Hop: Colorful Seasons


Welcome to another RemARKably Creative Blog Hop. This month, we're featuring projects made with the products included in the Colorful Seasons Promotion. This promotion includes the Blended Seasons Bundle, and I've used it on my card.

This bundle can be used on so many wonderful projects! It includes images that work with Fall & Christmas projects, along with images that can be used all year long! I love versatile sets like this...especially when they coordinate with a die set! The stamp set also includes some wonderful greeting stamps...everything you need! You can see the stamp set in the blog hop picture at the top of this post, along with the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies. You can purchase the stamp set and dies separately or as a bundle. If you want both, you definitely want the bundle, because it saves you 10%! You need to hurry, though! These products are only available until August 31, 2018 or while supplies last...whichever comes first. Then, they'll be GONE FOREVER!

I decided to go with a card that can be used any time of the year. I used the beautiful floral image in the set, and fussy cut it out. I also used some of the new Stampin' Blends from the Annual Catalog. You can get the full supply list below the blog hop list.


Dimensions:
  • Highland Heather:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Mint Macaron:  4" x 5-1/4" (embossed layer)
  • Whisper White:  3-1/4" x 4-1/2" (flowers) & 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" (greeting)
  • Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (DSP):  4" x 2"
  • Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:  6" (strip) & 9" (bow)
Instructions:
  1. Emboss the Mint Macaron piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, using the following sandwich: (beginning from the bottom) Big Shot Platform, folder with cardstock inside, & Standard Cutting Pad. Attach the DSP piece across the bottom of the embossed piece. Wrap the 6" piece of the tulle ribbon across the top of the DSP layer, attaching the ribbon ends to the back of the embossed piece.  Fold the Highland Heather piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the embossed piece to the center of the card front.
  2. Die-cut a label from the Whisper White greeting piece using the smallest label/frame die in the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies. Stamp the "I Just Miss You" stamp from the Blended Seasons Stamp Set onto the right side of the label using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Attach the label to the right side of the card, about a 1/2" above the ribbon.
  3. Stamp the large floral stamp onto the last Whisper White piece using the Memento Pad. Color the inner parts and lines in the flower petals with the dark marker and the rest of the petals with the light marker (coloring over the dark areas to blend), from the Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. Color the lines inside the leaves with the dark marker and the rest of the leaves with the light marker (coloring over the dark areas to blend) from the Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. Color the flower centers in with the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker. Fussy the image out with Paper Snips. Attach it over the left side of the label using Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture for placement). Tie the 9" piece of tulle ribbon into a bow, and attach it to the right side of the attached ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot. Trim the ribbon ends at an angle.

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

If you have trouble opening the tutorial, you may need to update your pdf reader.

I hope you enjoyed my card. Now it's time to enjoy everyone else's! You're at Christy Fulk - Create With Christy - USA in the list. You can either go to the name after mine, or go through the hop the other way, and go to the one before mine.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Wishing You Well - Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek


I finally have a Short & Sweet Saturday card for you. I've been dying to make something with something from my Holiday Catalog Preorder, and I finally got to! I LOVE being a demo! I get to get new products EARLY! 😃

What about that tin tile layer? Isn't it beautiful? I used the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the upcoming Holiday Catalog. I could tell I would love it from the pictures and videos I've seen, but I love it even more in person! The stamp set I used is also from the Holiday Catalog called Wishing You Well. This stamp set can make beautiful Christmas wreaths, but I wanted to show how it can be used on non-Christmas cards, too. This stamp set is part of the DistINKtive Line of stamp sets. If you look at the close-up picture below, you can see all of the detail in the images. I only stamped the wreath and the bow one time each!


Dimensions:
  • Soft Sea Foam:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base) & 4" x 1" (strip)
  • Petal Pink:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Whisper White:  4-1/4" x 2-3/4" (wreath & bow)
  • Champagne Foil Sheets:  3" x 4" (tin tile layer)
  • Metallic Ribbon Combo:  6" (Petal Pink)

Instructions:
  1. Stamp the flower group stamp from the Wishing You Well Stamp Set onto both sides of the top two-thirds of the Petal Pink piece using the Petal Pink Classic Stampin' Pad. Emboss the Champagne Foil Sheet piece by running it through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Use the following sandwich:  (starting from the bottom) Big Shot Platform, folder with cardstock inside, and a Standard Cutting Mat. Attach the piece to the top, center of the Petal Pink piece.
  2. Stamp the "sending you..." stamp onto the bottom, right corner of the Petal Pink piece using the Gray Granite Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach the Soft Sea Foam strip piece across the bottom of the tin tile piece. Wrap the Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon piece around the middle of the strip, attaching the ribbon ends to the back of the Petal Pink piece. Fold the largest Soft Sea Foam piece in half (fold on the left) to form the card base. Attach the Petal Pink piece to the center of the card front.
  3. Stamp the wreath stamp onto one end of the Whisper White piece using the Soft Sea Foam Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the bow stamp onto the other end of the piece using the Petal Pink ink pad. Die-cut the wreath out with the second, largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Fussy cut the bow out with Paper Snips. Attach the bow to the top, center of the wreath, and then attach the wreath to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture for placement).

Use SNAIL Adhesive when attaching, unless stated otherwise.

If you have trouble opening the tutorial, you may need to update your pdf reader. Note:  The Wishing You Well Stamp Set and Tin Tile embossing folder are not available yet, and can't be put on the supply list, until September 5, 2018


If You Can't See the Supply List Below, You'll Need to Go to the Original Post. The Wishing You Well Stamp Set and Tin Tile Embossing Folder can't be added to the supply list until they're available on September 5, 2018.
