Sneak Peek Stamping, Playing with New Catalog Items

This past weekend was another busy one, but I still managed to get some stamping in, okay I managed to get a lot of stamping in!

On Saturday I attended a “Sneak Peek Stamping” event that can be summed up in one word… STAMPALOOZA!

There were 60+ people in attendance, and we each made 20 cards!

Even more exciting, we used all new product including some that is not yet available!

Take a peek at the cards we made!

This collection of cards features the Mosaic Madness set.

Even though there are no holiday sets in the new catalog, this set demonstrates the creativity of seeing more than a decorative stamp – love the ornaments!

I had so much fun playing with all the new products, and putting together all of these great cards. The event I attended was put together by Glenda Travelstead and her team – they do phenomenal work, going above and beyond so that everyone who attends walks away with fresh, new ideas. We love Glenda and appreciate the hard work she has done and continues to do. I know that she is appreciative of the team she has, those that help her when she needs it and those that show up and make these gatherings the events that they turn out to be!

Now, aren’t you even more excited about the new catalog? The 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up!© Catalog will be available starting May 31st – JUST 9 DAYS AWAY!

Stamping Onesies

I have been using different mediums in my current crafting endeavors to see what results I can produce.

While I love the look of store bought clothes and can almost always find something cute for a child, I still wanted to experiment with colors and stamps from Stampin’ Up! and create my own designs.

My first thought was infant under garments specifically the onesie. This is what I came up with on my first try.

I used Summer Solstice (item # 122024) stamp set and Many Marvelous Markers (item # 119806).

Colors: Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive

These supplies can be ordered in my online store. www.megandeyoung.stampinup.net

I inked the flower first and stamped the image on transfer paper. The stem is free hand using the Old Olive marker. Lastly I added the leaf, again inking the stamp with the marker. My first attempt with our ink pads left the image looking very heavy, and lots of blobs from too much ink and too many air bubbles in between the fine lines of this particular stamp. You can control it better with the markers.

I cut out my image from the transfer paper and positioned it on the onesie just to see how it looked. Note that because I use the transfer paper the image will actually mirror the image you see now, so the positioning before the final transfer is simply to align the image and give an idea of placement.

I flipped the paper and thus the image and placed it on the other side since that is where I want the flower to be postitioned.  After doing this, you want to follow the directions of the transfer paper. All brands vary slightly and will instruct exactly how you should proceed with the transfer depending on the material you are working with. Here is the results after transfering.

The flower is complete. Now I want to add my butterflies.  I complete the same inking and stamping process as I did for the flower. After cutting out each butterfly I place them to see how I want them positioned. Again, I follow the instructions of transfer paper. The final product can be seen above. Here are some other ones I created.

This same process can be done in My Digital Studio. It all depends on how you like to create. With the new price of My Digital Studio being only $19.95  (item # 130647) it is a great time to give this fun technique a try.
