Eden's Garden - Sneak Peek!

 Hey everyone!


Stampin' Up! is releasing a bundle from the upcoming January - June Mini Catalog a couple of months early!  Woohoo!  Who doesn't love a new stamp set or bundle?  It will be available for order beginning November 2.  And as part of the early release, a couple new papers and some new embellishments will also be available.  I'll have more information as we get a little closer to November 2, but for now, how about a sneak peek?

As a demonstrator, I was able to order these new products a couple of weeks ago.  I used them to make three cards:



Want a closer look at those cards?


The first card shows the detail from the edge die, the beautiful Designer Series Paper and a couple images from the stamp set.


The second card shows more of the designer series paper, the cotton paper (used for the die cut frame), and more images from the stamp set.


The third card shows another stamped image, more of the designer series paper, and another look at the die cut frame, this time in gold foil.

So, mark your calendar for November 2 to add this beautiful new bundle to your collection!

Elegantly Said Anniversary

 Hello stampers!


Recently I had need for an anniversary card, kind of last minute.  So I put together this quick and easy anniversary card.  I think it turned out really nicely - the beautiful designer series paper does the heavy lifting on this one.  

'
I started with a Very Vanilla card base.  Next I added a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Simply Elegant paper pack cut to 5" x 3-3/4" and matted on a piece of Basic Black cardstock that I cut to 5-1/4" x 4".  I layered another piece of the same DSP cut to 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" and framed with a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".  The sentiment, from Elegantly Said, was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Very Vanilla cardstock cut to 1" x 2-5/8" and matted to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut to 1-1/8" x 2-3/4".  I added the pieces to the card front with Dimensionals.

You can find a list of all the products I used for this card below.  Clicking any one of the product pictures will take you directly to my online store.  

Please use the host code for October C4BBCYXV when ordering.   If your order is more than $150.00, do not use the code.  Doing so would forfeit your earned hostess benefits.  However, you will still receive this month's order bonus from me.

Welcoming Woods

 Hello stampers!


Last week's Facebook Live actually worked out well - thank goodness!  No technical or user issues this week.  And I'm happy it worked out so I could share these projects with you!  

Here is a look at the cards I made:



This set has the most wonderful sentiments.  It's perfect for your fall and winter crafting!

If you missed the live, you can see it here.  All the instructions and measurements for the cards are in my video.  As always, when you place a minimum $35.00 order by midnight on October 12, I will send you the kit and .pdf to make these projects.  (Kits do not include inks, stamps, or adhesives).



And this isn't the end of this set.  I enjoyed playing with it so much, that I made a couple more cards over the weekend that you will see soon.

Please use the host code for September C4BBCYXV when ordering.   If your order is more than $150.00, do not use the code.  Doing so would forfeit your earned hostess benefits.  However, you will still receive this month's order bonus from me.

World Card Making Day Christmas

 Hello stampers,

World Card Making Day was celebrated last Saturday.  Yes, it's a 'real thing' and paper crafters spend the day doing their favorite thing - making paper crafts!  Back when I was primarily a scrapbooker, we always celebrated World Card Making Day with a crop.  Such fun!  

This year I didn't have anything official planned for World Card Making Day, but I invited folks that follow my Stamp With Melanie Facebook page to share some of their creations on my page.  As a thank. you to those that participated, I sent them one of the following card kits.

While the cards are easy, it doesn't take a whole lot to make a pretty card.



Yes, there are Saleabration products used for these cards, but you can easily substitute for product available now.   For example, Sweet Stockings, Heartwarming Hugs, or Whimsy and Wonder would all be beautiful, as well as the Brushed Metallic Cardstock.  I used Heartfelt Wishes for the greeting.

Product List

Please use the host code for October C4BBCYXV when ordering. If your order is more than $150.00, do not use the code. Doing so would forfeit your earned hostess benefits. However, you will still receive this month's order bonus from me.

Gorgeous Leaves

Hi everyone!

Note:  This is a re-release of a blog post from earlier this week.  Due to an error in scheduling it was never sent to the subscriber list.  My apologies for the error!

Last week during my Facebook Live, I made a couple of cards using the Gorgeous Leaves bundle.  While it was still on my desk, I had to make a couple more cards using that same set.  Both are very easy and you can change the sentiment to make them for any occasion.

First up is this thank you card.




For this thank you card, I started with a Basic White Thick cardstock base.  Next up is a Cinnamon Cider layer that has been embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.  After embossing, I tied a piece of Crumb Cake Baker's Twine around the panel and adhered it to the card base.  The stamped panel has leaves stamped in Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon Cider, Cajun Craze, and Soft Succulent.  The sentiment from this card is from Love of Leaves and was stamped in Cinnamon Cider.




For the second card, above, the card base is Cajun Craze cardstock.  The stamped panel is framed by Soft Succulent.  I stamped the leaves in Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Bumblebee,  and Soft Succulent.  I also sponged a little Cinnamon Cider on each of the leaves to create a multi-color effect.  The sentiment is from Nuts About Squirrels and is stamped in Soft Succulent.  Before adhering the layers to the card base, I added some scraps of Cork Paper and attached all with Dimensionals.

You can find a list of all the products I used for this card below.  Clicking any one of the product pictures will take you directly to my online store.  

Please use the host code for October C4BBCYXV when ordering.   If your order is more than $150.00, do not use the code.  Doing so would forfeit your earned hostess benefits.  However, you will still receive this month's order bonus from me.
