Mini Catalog

Hi Crafters!  I want to make sure everyone has access to the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog so I’m including the link here.  Make sure you check these stamps, embellishments and dies out because when they’re gone, they’re gone!!! 

FAVORS FROM THE HEART

01.31.20 Heart Tin FlamingoSometimes you want to give a special someone a special something.  Stampin’Up has Heart Foil Tins available in the new Mini Catalog.  I thought they were too cute to pass up.  The tins are 3 1/2 X 3 15/16 across and 1 3/16” high.  The tops are easy to remove but slip back on securely.  Better yet, these are even food safe!

01.31.20 Heart Tin Red

There are 18 of these tins left.  There are 19 red and 19 Flirty Flamingo heart doilies left.  The new heart punches from the Heart Punch Pack are used to punch out the red glimmer paper and From My Heart DSP hearts.  The arrow is die cut on black cs, cut in half and adhered with the two ends running “thru” the heart.  Aren’t these too cute?

01.31.20 Heart Tin Duo FrontThe heart tins are an add-on if you would like to make one.  I will have the materials pre-cut if you let me know which color combination you prefer.  Putting them together is truly very easy.  The added cost for a tin is $2.00.  The sentiment “hugs and kisses” was stamped on the Flirty Flamingo heart.

01.31.20 Heart Tin Duo SideWhen you let me know what day you will be coming, make sure you specify if you would like a heart tin for the additional $2.   As there are only 18 available, they won’t last long.

For March Stamp Camp, we are doing a new background technique called the Bubble Blowing Background!  Please don’t wear your Sunday Go To Church outfits for March Stamp Camp!  This will be a fun experience.

As a final reminder, February Stamp Camp is Thursday, February 6 from 11am – 6pm; Friday, February 7 from 12N – 6pm; and Saturday February 8 from 9am – 4pm.  Please let me know which day you are coming and what cards you want to do.  Also let me know if you want one of the heart tins.  I’m looking forward to seeing you!

Valentine Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c/t)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

 

PARISIAN BEAUTY

01.31.20 Parisian Beauty PinkParisian Beauty is one of the new Stampin’Up sets in the latest Occasions Catalog.  I like the simple elegance of the set.  This sample was done with the sentiment AMOUR for Valentine’s Day but it could be used for other occasions.  The DSP I used was FREE!  During the Stampin’Up Sale-A-Brations event, you can choose from an assortment of free items for every $50 in product you purchase.  This is the Lily Impressions DSP.  There are impressionist style water lily images on one side of the DSP and beautiful variegated colors on the other.  I have used the pink shades on the card above and the purple tones on the card below.  The DSP is misted with water and embossed with the new Parisian Flourish 3-D embossing folder.

01.31.20 Parisian Beauty PurpleThe images are die cut on Smoky Slate, and colored with Wink of Stella before being adhered to the card front.  Retired Petite Petal flowers are stamped and colored in Purple Posy.  Small silver metallic pearls embellish the flower centers.  Birthday wishes is the sentiment used on the purple sample.  Note the light Smoky Slate image on the envelope.  This provides a hint to the recipient as to what might be inside the envelope. 

01.31.20 Parisian Beauty Message

The card theme is even carried over to the message layer.  I found using the Stamparatus was easiest in stamping the lighter image on the envelope and message layer.  There are several additional dies and stamps that come with this bundle.  If you don’t have the January-June 2020 mini occasions catalog titled HANDMADE FOR YOU, check it out here at Spring Mini catalog.  You can check out the Sale-A-Brations event at SALE-A-BRATION

We’ve seen the 4 card projects for February Stamp Camp.  There is still one post to go – an add-on project if you are interested.  That will be the last post for February Stamp Camp.  Remember – Thursday 2/6 from 11am – 6pm, Friday 2/7 from 12N – 6pm and Saturday 2/8 from 9am – 4pm.  Let me know what day you would like to come and which cards you want to make.  Come when it is most convenient for you. 

See you in the next post, Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c/t)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com

DETAILED HEARTS VALENTINE

My sweet husband has another name for this card – Make one, Make one free!

01.31.20 Detailed Heart HeatherUsing the new Detailed Hearts Die does give us 2 cards for the work of 1.  Well, maybe there is a little work on the second card, but not much.  This new die cuts out LOTS of hearts at one time.  The 5 1/4 X 4 pieces of Whisper White and Pretty in Pink (sadly retired) are mounted on Sizzix adhesive.  The die cuts the white frame for the card at the left and the pink outline shape that fits within the frame.  Be Mine Stitched dies are used to die-cut the larger hearts and the new Heart to Heart stamp set provides the sentiment.  So, as I mentioned above, the die cuts white frame but what happens to the white outline shape?  Enter the magic of Press’n Seal Food Wrap.  After running the die through the Big Shot, a sheet of Press’n Seal is pressed onto the card stock which allows it to retain its shape.  After the white frame is pressed onto the Highland Heather card front, the white outline shape is pressed onto a red card and PRESTO, see what you have!

01.31.20 Detailed Heart RedA second card magically appears!  It helps if you finish the card but most of the work is already done!

The directions may sound complicated, but it really is not hard and of course, I am here to help you.  Of course, if you are paying attention to this post, you should be asking – BUT what happens to the pink frame?  Actually, the pink frames from my cards are gathering dust on my desk.  Every card made following this process begets another card and the cycle has to stop sometime.

I hope you can come to February Stamp Camp – Thursday February 6th from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday February 7th from 12 N – 6 pm, and Saturday February 8th from 9 am – 4 pm.  Come when it is convenient for you.  Everything you need will be provided – even water and soda pop.  The cost remains $14 and $3 for each additional card.  There is a heart tin add-on available for $2 if you wish to purchase one of the 18 remaining.  There will be a an upcoming blog post on the tins.

Please let me know which day you plan on coming and which cards you want to make.  This helps so much in planning and paper cutting.

By the way, did you see the butterflies?

BEE MINE

01.31.20 Be MineBee Mine comes from the new Honey Bee stamp set.  The gorgeous designer paper is FREE with the current Sale-A-Brations special.  When you purchase at least $50 in product, this Golden Honey DSP is one of the free items you can choose from. 

I thought this would be a cute card to do for Valentine’s Day although most sentiments would be appropriate.  Gold metallic foil is perfect for die-cutting the honeycomb shape.  Gold shimmer ribbon attaches the DSP to the Real Red frame and is tied in a shoestring bow.  The bees are stamped in black and colored in Crushed Curry and Wink of Stella. 

01.31.20 Bee MineThe sample above features the sentiment BE MINE stamped  in red and punched out with the triple banner punch.  The sample to the right features the BEE MINE sentiment which is die-cut with small Sizzix dies on adhesive backed cs and adhered to a punched banner.  Small hearts and the requisite butterfly are die cut and added to the card front.   The message layer is embellished with more bees – stamped and die cut.

As a reminder, February Stamp Camp is Thursday February 6th from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday February 7th from 12 N – 6 pm, and Saturday February 8th from 9 am – 4 pm.  Come when you can and stay as long as you want.  Please let me know what day you plan on stopping by and what cards you choose to make.

2020–THE YEAR OF THE BUTTERFLY

Welcome crafters to the PAPERROSE YEAR OF THE BUTTERFLY!  All of our cards this year will feature a butterfly – maybe hidden or maybe in plain view!  That choice is up to you!  We are starting our crafting year with Valentines or whatever message you choose to use. 

01.31.20 From My HeartFrom My Heart is a colorful card done in Real Red and Blushing Bride.  The From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper is framed in black and features lots of hearts. One of my many retired heart dies is used to center the card and a small die-cut heart glitters from the center.  The sentiment for this sample comes from the new Honey Bee set and is perfect for friends (even if they are not sweet).

01.31.20 From My Heart 2The second sample uses a sentiment – Sending Love – from the retired Sure Do Love You set. I simply can’t part with any of my retired Valentine sets so I use lots of older dies and stamps. 

Do you see the butterfly in each card? 

As you may be wondering when February Stamp Camp is going to be, it is actually right around the corner as I am embarrassingly late in posting my blogs.  To be truthful, I JUST finished the samples yesterday.  January is always a lazy month for me.  February Stamp Camp is Thursday February 6th from 11 am – 6 pm, Friday February 7th from 12 N – 6 pm, and Saturday February 8th from 9 am – 4 pm.  Come when you can and stay as long as you want – but no overnights, please.

As always, all supplies and tools are provided.  Soda pop and water are in the fridge.  A snack of some type magically appears in the kitchen thanks to my sweet hubby!!! The cost remains $14 for any 4 cards and $3.50 for each additional card.  This month, there is an add-on if you choose to purchase it.  Heart tins that come with your choice of embellishments are available for $2.00.  They are available if you choose to purchase one.  I have 18 left so when they are gone, there are no more.  Please let me know if you plan on coming and what cards you wish to do.  I will start cutting paper today. 

What’s next for February Stamp Camp?  Bee Mine is coming up next!

IRIS FOLDING–4-Color Birthday Cake

Iris Folding Birthday 1Welcome to the second blog post on the Iris Folding class being offered on January 16 (11AM – 4PM) and January 18 (9AM – 4PM).

Our second card is a birthday cake – much more attractive than it appears in the picture.  This 4-color cake uses a chocolate foil, a pink foil with gold dots, a gorgeous gold foil and a scenic paper with blues, browns and pinks.  The platter uses a black and gold paper and the icing is covered with chocolate foil.  The candle flame is red glitter from SU and the candles are a starred gold paper.  The press-on sentiment reads Happy Birthday and the confetti abounds in Early Espresso and Rococo Rose cs and gold paper.  The confetti is made using the retired SU confetti punch. 

Iris Folding Birthday close

Looking closely at the iris folding technique used, you can easily see the folds of the cake.  Many times a gem is placed in the center of the iris lens.  This is something we could add at any time.  The amount of confetti used depends on the user.  You can use less or more!

If you are interested in this paper crafting technique, I hope you can make the class offered on the 16th or the 18th.  Class size is limited to 5 each day and paper will be cut only for those who let me know they will be attending.  I guarantee you will have fun!  The cost is $9 for 2 cards and everything you need will be supplied.  We have lots of beverages to keep you hydrated but you might aol.comwant to bring a snack.

Please let me know if you plan on attending.

Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630.759.3089 – (c)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@
