Hi Stamping Friends!

I'm so excited!  Stampin' Up! has just announced that the NEW Stamparatus stamp positioning tool will be coming early in 2018!  Woohoo!  I've been looking forward to this release for a LONG time, since I was on the focus group to provide feedback during its development over the past year or so.  I can't wait to get my hands on this awesome tool and try it out!


How Can You Get One?  You'll be able to reserve your very own Stamparatus beginning on Thursday, November 16, and it will begin shipping to those with reservations on February 1, 2018.  I'll have more details on the reservation process then, but I wanted to let you know that it's coming!

Karen mittens swaps - two cool

Karen's Adorable MIttens & More Swap Cards

Today, I'm sharing two super-cute swap cards created by Karen Ellert-Flory! 

Karen santas suit 1
Designed by Karen Ellert-Flory.

Background Basics—Karen's card starts by stamping the clothesline from the Santa's Suite stamp set in Memento Black ink across a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White card stock.  She also added a Cherry Cobbler Star of Light sentiment in the bottom left corner. The background is mounted onto an Old Olive card base.

Santa's Suit—Next, Karen stamped all of the parts of Santa's Suit in Memento Ink onto Whisper White.  I love that this two-step stamp set makes it super-easy to "color" in the clothes…there are solid images so you can simply stamp them with Cherry Cobbler, or Old Olive ink (for the suspenders!).  Even the little clothespins have a two-step image to stamp on the Crushed Curry color.  Each of the pieces are die-cut with the coordinating Santa Builder Framelits…even those tiny little clothespins!  She popped them up along the clothesline.  She also added a little Wink of Stella Clear shimmer to the suit…LOVE it!

Finishing Touches—Karen added some stamped and die-cut boots in the corner.  And, let's not forget about Santa!  He's stamped with two-step Old Olive image, colored with Powder Pink marker and adorned with two sparkly Black Rhinestones on the back!  Karen also added some floating Rhinestone Jewels around the clothesline, too!

Karen smitten mitten 1
Designed by Karen Ellert-Flory.

Background Basics—Karen's second card starts with a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White card stock layer that's embossed with the pretty Winter Winder snowflake embossing folder.  After wrapping some Cherry Cobbler Double-Stitched Ribbon around the front and securing the ends to the back with SNAIL, she mounted the layer onto a Cherry Cobbler card base.    

Karen smitten mitten 2
Focal Point—Karen used the Smitten Mittens stamp set to stamp the two mittens in Cherry Cobbler, and die-cut them with the Many Mittens Framelits.  The word is from the same set, stamped onto a Whisper White circle die-cut with the Layering Circles Framelits.  That circle is layered onto a Cherry Cobbler circle cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. It's popped up with Dimensionals.  Karen finished the card with a sweet Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper snowflake, also die-cut from Many Mittens Framelits and popped up with a Dimensional.  One rhinestone adds a touch of sparkle.
