Stamp With Deb

If you read my post on the 2018 Calendar I said I was going to do it differently this year. Instead of creating and posting the calendar all at the end of December. I will be creating it as we go through the year.

The January page uses the the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Party Pandas.

What you need to do to participate:
  • Place a $50 order (before shipping and tax) by January 31.  Be sure to order the Party Panda as your free Sale-A-Bration product.
  • Place your order directly through MY STORE Do not select NO CONTACT when placing your order . If you do I will not be able to send you the calendar because, I won't get any information.
  • Each month (February - December) you purchase $25 in product ( before shipping and tax) I will send you the calendar page
What I will do:
  •  I will send you the Calendar Base which includes the cover, stand and anchor pages, once I receive an email from Stampin' Up! that you placed an order
  •  I will send you  the January 2019 Calendar Page kit including any shapes, ribbons and the pre-printed calendar ready to be stamped and assembled.
You can follow along and order each month and by the end of the year you will have added some fun new things to your stamping collection and your calendar will be completed. I will show you the supplies I used to create this page.

This card is cased from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog. I love this set and can't wait to play with it some more. Just a few tips! #1 On page 5 of the 2018 Occasion catalog is a new embossing folder that will emboss your cardstock to give it the look of siding. If you don't have that embossing folder yet, you could score every 1/2" on your Simply Scoring Tool. #2 Purchase some #6 washers from the local hardware store you will need 8 for each card. #3 Be sure to attach the greeting before you put the door on. #4 Instead of using dimensionals on the back of the siding I used Foam Adhesive Strips. They raised it a little higher and they made it much easier than dimensionals.

Stamp Set is called Barn Door!
Cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pool Party
Cut 4 x 5 1/4 Pool Party and emboss with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (or score with the Simply Scoring Tool). Then cut with the die.
Cut 2 1/2 x 4 Crumb Cake. Stamp the door on it with Early Espresso. Cut out with the die after stamping
Cut 2 x 2 Garden Green. Stamp the wreath in Garden Green. Cut this out with the wreath die
Scrap of Whisper White and stamp the flowers 2 times. Once in Crushed Curry and once in Calypso Coral. Cut these out with the 3 flower die and the Calypso Coral with the individual flower die.
Die cut the rail, door handle and hardware in Basic Black cardstock
Cut 2 1/2 x 4 Whisper White. Stamp the greetings in Early Espresso.

Attach 2 of the washers together using a Mini Dimensional. You will need 4 of these sets. Put them into the slits you made with the die. Position them and attach to the door using glue dots. 

This set will be available  January 3 - May 31

Happy Stamping!!

This is a new technique for me and I could think of several different ways to do this. First I will tell you how I made it then give you other ways. I stamped the line leaf image with VersaMark on a window sheet and heat embossed it with Copper Embossing Powder. Be sure that your window sheet will endure the heat. If you are using the write on overhead sheets they will buckle, bend and melt if you use the heat gun on them. Be sure to use one that will tolerate that heat.  Ink the solid leaf with So Saffron and with a dauber the edge with Soft Suede and the center with Cajun Craze and stamp it in the center of the Whisper White that is cut with the Stitched Square die.Use the die to cut out the leaf and adhere the leaf to the Copper Scallop Square. Adhere the Window Sheet to the back of the Whisper White that the leaf is cut out of.  Attach the Whisper White to the Scallop Copper Square. 

Stamp set is Colorful Season
Early Espresso - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Copper Foil - 5 1/4 x 4, 2 3/4 x 2 3/4
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack - 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
Whisper White - 2 1/4 x 2 1/4
Window Sheet - 2 1/4 x 2 1/4

Some other things I thought about in using this technique are: You wouldn't have to have a solid stamp. You could just sponge on a piece of Whisper white and place that on the Copper foil instead of the leaf. You could color with sponges, daubers, Stampin' Write Markers, Stampin' Blends or even watercolor on the Whisper White.  You could emboss the line image in any color but you must have a line image and corresponding die to work with. I am sure you can think of many other ideas. I would love to hear them. Please put them in the comments section.
Happy Stamping!

I just realized that I posted this calendar completely backwards. My posts should have started with December and worked their way to January at the end which would have put January first on the page. So sorry! I don't think I can rearrange them now.

The base cardstock for all the pages is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White
All the calendars were created by me in Publisher and are cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

There wasn't a stamp set used for this page. It was all done with dies. I used 2 die sets:  one is retired (the greeting) however; the flowers are still available. They came from the Quilt Builder Framelit Dies.

Next layer is 5 1/4 x 7 7/8 Cherry Cobbler
Cut Gold Foil at 5 x 3 7/8 (top) and 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 (bottom)
Cut Whisper White 3 3/4 x 4 7/8.
Cut Cherry Cobbler at 3 x 4 7/8
Die cut the flowers from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper
Cut the outlines for the flowers in Gold Foil
Wrap the 3/8" Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon around and adhere it to the front
Wrap gold threat around and attach it under the flowers
Finish off with the stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and a Faceted Gem in the center of each flower

I hope that you enjoy your calendar.

All the calendars were created by me in Publisher and are cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

The stamp sets used are Count My Blessings and Colorful Seasons. I think is the perfect name for a stamp set used for a month of changing seasons. This stamp set could be used for every season. It is very versatile!

Next layer is 5 1/4 x 7 7/8 Early Espresso
Cut Cajun Craze at 5 x 3 7/8 (top) and 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 (bottom)
Cut Whisper White 3 3/4 x 4 7/8. Stamp the greeting on the right side with Early Espresso
Die cut one leaf in Crushed Curry, one in Cajun Craze and one in Cherry Cobbler
Cut the small leaf in Early Espresso
Sponge the edges of the leaves to give them dimension
Cut a ring out of the Copper Foil by layering two of the Layering Circle dies together
Cut a piece of 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack

Have fun assembling this one. It is easy and looks so elegant when it is finished off with a piece of Linen Thread tied in a bow.

All the products used are listed below!

Last year we had such a great new set for this month with dies and amazing stamps and papers that I had a hard time with October this year. So I went really simple.

The base cardstock for all the pages is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White
All the calendars were created by me in Publisher and are cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

The stamp set used is Spooky Cat
Next layer is 5 1/4 x 7 7/8 Crushed Curry
Cut Basic Black at 5 x 3 7/8 (top) and 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 (bottom)
Cut Whisper White @ 3 3/4 x 4 7/8. Use a piece of scrap cardstock (any color it doesn't matter) punch with a 2 1/2" circle punch, then using a sponge and Crushed Curry sponge inside the circle to create the moon.
Punch the Cat from a piece of Basic Black
Cut 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 piece of DSP (I used last years Halloween paper), However, we have some great black and white prints that would work as well.
Put a piece of 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon across the top of the DSP
Stamp the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White 
Finish off with the Black Rhinestones.

All the products that are currently available are listed below.
