A Chicken Window Card and video

I realized I have not made a video on my YouTube channel in a very long time. Yikes. So, I got busy today.

Normally I take 3 videos, sometimes 5 because of serious blurbs and mishaps, or interruptions. I choose the best and spend 3 -5 hours editing-especially if its been a long time since my last video. For some odd reason, I made one video, took 1 hr to edit and loaded it. WHAT!!! It was time for me to JUST DO IT and get going with posting. Many of you who read my blog are customers, new followers, and fellow demonstrators. Lots of you have probably never even made a video let alone uploaded it for the world to see and judge. It’s scary and exciting. I just must have been on my A game today. It’s not the best, but it explains the card idea. It’s been a few weeks since I really last posted a fun tutorial and I figured it would be better if I did more than just picture tutorial, video would be the best. I learn far more from the visual as do most of you. I hope you enjoy.

Please note, if you get this in your email, you are more than likely not able to see the video. I didn’t realize this until my last video upload. At the bottom of my post is a direct link to my blog and you can click on it and see the video then. Sorry, not sure why it doesn’t come through but you’ll want to visit my blog anyway.

Today’s post is about the Hey Chick Stamp set that’s FREE with a $50.00 order during SALE-A-BRATION.

I have for you the Chicken Window card:

My original Sample:

My card on the video:

Here are the Dimensions of this card:

Card base is 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.

The extra inside piece that covers is 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ but cut off 1/8″ from each so it sat better on the inside.

The square I used for the window is 1 3/8″ (second smallest square).

The second square for the framed window is 1 3/4″ (third square) with the 1 3/8″ square.

I did use the chicken wire from the now retired set Ghoulish Grunge from the Holiday 2016 Catalog. Try instead the one from the Butterfly Basics stamps set (page 113 main catalog) or the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143231 $9.00 in the Occasions Catalog.

To simplify I used the Big Shot platform and standard cutting pads for the square thinlits. I sorta got tongue-tied with what I was using in the video but it’s all good.

Enjoy the Video:

Are you New to Stampin’ Up! or has it been awhile since you last saw a catalog?

I decided to make a post about our stamps. Are you New to Stampin’ Up!® products or has it been a long time since you last bought our products?

I had several people contact me in the last 24 hours that need this information. I am guessing there are many more of you out there that can use this refresher. I have a couple of videos that shine a light to our stamps and explain the differences of Clear Mount & Photopolymer. Don’t worry, these are amazing products that you will enjoy using even if you still LOVE wood stamps, like me.

There are some changes since this video first came out, how it’s sold, different packaging, but it tells you about our Photopolymer stamps.

Do you need all of our catalogs? If you live within 1/2 hour of Lake Geneva, WI, I can drop them off to you. If not, click here and I will send them to you.

Lift Me Up cards

Today, I have three fun 4″ x 4″ cards made with the new Lift me Up stamps and SALE-A-BRATION Carried Away DSP. It’s time to get inspired.

These are just so much fun to make and I know they will be great to send.

The DSP is cut 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ and the White stamped card is 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″

This DSP is cut to 3-3/4 x 1-1/2″

This card has the DSP cut to 4″x4″ to cover the front of the card. The night of Navy C.S. is 3-3/8″ x 3-3/8″. The White is 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″

The punched greeting was a bit more complicated but easy to achieve.

You need to used the Modern punch to punch out the greeting, then punch out two Night Of Navy C.S. Cut one punch in 1/2 and the other just cut off side arrows:

Now add booger maker tape (adhesive of your choice!) to back of white punched greeting and place on top of the blue pieces.

Backside:

Now add the side arrows with adhesive:

Since the cards are smaller than a normal size card I decided to create personalized envelopes with the Envelope Punch board. If you haven’t bought one of these boards before, now is the perfect time. It’s EASY! It creates all size envelopes with all different paper types. If you recycle papers, this is right up your alley. It even is perfect for treat packaging.

Just right.

Here are the supplies I used:

Perhaps it’s time to update your tools. It’s OK, Your Hubby will update his collection in the garage from time to time. Why shouldn’t you!!
I included the Big Shot and the Stampin’ Trimmer. You need these items.  These items will most certainly get you to your FREE items with SALE-A-BRATION.
The Carried Away DSP (143608) is exactly what you need to go hand in hand with this fun stamp set. With a $50.00 order-you get it FREE! But there is so much more.

Hugs and Kisses

Hugs and Kisses.

I could use some right now. This past Wednesday, I found my 87 yr-old Mother-In-Law on the floor. We happened to stop by unannounced after helping a client with furniture in the city. Virginia may have been laying there 24-36 hrs. Diagnosed as a Massive Stroke, she’s in a hospital, resting comfortably. The scans revealed 40% of her brain had been affected. Right now her left side is not working right, speech slurred, and she had a feeding tube inserted, finally, just yesterday on Friday. Yikes. She has been taking care of her 60 something daughter, Don’s sister who is mentally unstable. Patricia did not remember how to call for help on a phone or try to go outside for help. I will share that the word in my mind right now is-(nice or not nice) “Clusterf#%*”!!! This is not how I expected the year to start. A year ago I placed my Mom in Assisted living with Dementia. Thankfully, my Mom is doing well and reasonably happy as can be.

I wanted to make something that cheered me up to place on my blog for you before I head to the City with my girls (11 and 9) to see Grandma Virginia. It’s going to be tough but my girls will be just fine. She has been a tremendous Blessing to my girls. All I could wish for in a grandmother for my girls. She always loves them, kisses them, hugs them. My girls could be messy, food on the face, sick with a cold, bad mood, no matter. Yes, she is a bit out there and quirky, But I love her. At this time it’s unknown what the future holds for her. Life changing for her as well as we figure out what to do, where she and my Sister-in-law will both live. So, actual Hugs and Prayers, Good Vibes sent for my Hubby Don, his Mom and our family are needed.

Here is a little something I whipped up for you:

A Simple and Clean card. I used the New Sealed with Love bundle #144705 $45.75

My 4 Sale is up and running

I know many of you have been wondering when I was going to put up a few things for sale on my one page. I had to dump all my 4Sale a year ago after my Site crashed. Today, I spent 4 hours taking pictures, looking for old pictures on my computer and listing.  I have added a bunch of things and will continue to do so. I think 4 hours is enough for today. I put up a list of retired dies at serious bargain prices. Most are at well below the 1/2 off price. If you had always wanted certain dies and missed out on them a few years ago, I may just have what you are looking for. If something isn’t listed, Just ask. All items are retired in my 4Sale. Anything current in the catalogs can be ordered in my Online store.

Happiest Birthday

I’m so ready to move on from the Holidays. In my business, Christmas ideas start in July with our pre-orders. I am certainly not complaining but I am ready for anything but Christmas ideas now. I spent a few hours yesterday just tidying up my office. More of it today as I put away everything Christmas including the stamp sets. But not to far put away. Did you know some of the holiday sets do have stamps in them that you could use all year long. Winter is the Season and you may still see a bit of the papers from This Christmas Specialty DSP show up in a future post. Just preparing you. But for now-it’s anything but Christmas.

I have for you a fun Happy birthday card made with Cool Treats, a new stamp set found in the Occasions catalog. Beginning Wed. the 4th, you will be able to order this along with the Frozen Treats Framelit Dies as a bundle. I demonstrated this card for my Hartford Ladies Stamp Club last month but I realized I forgot to order the framelits. I got the set as a gift from the On Stage event for Demonstrators in November but forgot to place the order for the extras. Normally the frozen ice cream would have been layered but I instead stamped it on the Whisper White CS first, stamped the cone on scrap and cut that out and layered. I’m pleased how it turned out.

A little sponging and of course, you have to add Wink of Stella to Jazz it up. The main color is Delightful Dijon.

I really love this set. Wait until you see the DSP that goes with it. YUM!

Beginning January 4th, the Occasions Catalog goes LIVE along with SALE-A-BRATION!!!

FOUR great ways to Enjoy this time of the year:
