Stampin’ Up! Spring Sampler Tag Quartet

Stampin up stampin up online class tutorial tag idea spring sampler catalog orders
Yesterday, I introduced the first of Stampin’ Up!’s NEW On-Line Classes along with sharing a resounding THUMBS UP! from me on the quality of the paper crafting samples and ideas.  The $14.95 class offers over 30 projects presented step by step as pdf files, plus supply lists and videos.  Many of you have already ordered the class and are as excited as I am.  See below for more information on how to get started.


Quick note . . . the videos in session 6 have a timing issue and are being remedied!  If you have already purchased the class through me, I’ll be sure you get the corrections when they are available.  UPDATE 2/27 4:00 p.m. — This has been repaired.  If you had this issue, you can download the class again and the videos are corrected.

After watching the session five class (there are 6 total sessions), I created my own version of the tags project.  So many cool tips and an easy to follow video!  I adapted them to my Spring Sampler stamp set.  That’s one of the benefits–these classes are versatile enough to work with the stamps and supplies you have on hand (although leave a little room for enabling).  Don’t you love how the Ticket Duo Builder Punch (126883) was used!  Learned that in the class!

The little galoshes from the Spring Sampler Set (Wood-Mount 125510, Clear-Mount 125512) were stamped with Pacific Point ink, paper snipped and popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals!

Singin’ in the Rain!  I used Teeny Tiny Wishes (Wood-Mount 115370, Clear-Mount 127802) stamp set for the sentiments.

For fun, I added Stampin’ Up! Pearl Basic Jewels (119247) to accentuate the spots!  Each of my tags measures 2″ x 3 1/2″.

Frankly, I didn’t think ahead about matching the Baker’s Twine to the ink.  I used Gumball Green ink along with Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine.  Keep the door open for experimenting with different colors and shades.  It’s amazing how similar shades take on the colors of each other and expand your possibilities.  Yep, I didn’t “match” the Island Indigo Baker’s Twine and Pacific Point Ink on the galoshes either . . . If I don’t post tomorrow, you’ll know I have gone straight to “Stampin’ Jail” for not doing the obvious.

Buzz!  The little bee was stamped on Daffodil Delight card stock, it’s oval body snipped and popped up on a sliver of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
