Cutest Halloween Sweater Card

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Today I’d like to share with you this cute card I created with Stampin’ Up’s *Knit Together Bundle* and portions of the *Cutest Halloween Suite* from the July-December Mini Catalog.

*Supply List*

Knit Together Bundle

Cutest Halloween Suite

Black Glitter Paper

*Ink*

Momento Black

Daffodil Delight

Smoky Slate

*Cardstock*

Daffodil Delight

Very Vanilla

Basic White

*Adhesives*

Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Adhesive Sheets

Stampin’ Dimensionals

*Other Helpful Tools*

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

Stamparatus

Take Your Pick Tool

Paper Snips

*Meaurements*

Cardbase – 5 1/2×4 1/4″

Matte Base 5 1/4″×4″

*Instructions*

I started by loading the Very Vanilla Matte Base into the Stamparatus and stamping it with the Knit Background Stamp in Smoky Slate Ink.

I placed Adhesive Sheets on the back of the Black Glitter Paper and Daffodil Delight Cardstock and cut the zig zags and hearts out using my Stampin’ Cut Emboss Machine and the Knit Dies.

Using the punch from the Cutest Halloween Suite, I punched out the pumpkins and cats from the Cutest Halloween DSP.

I also used the punch to punch out the ghosts and then stamped the little faces in Momento Black Ink.

Using my Take Your Pick Tool I removed the paper backing from the Adhesive Sheets and placed the pieces line by line across the Matte Base adhering the pumpkins, ghosts and black cats with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the “Hey Boo” sentiment in Daffodil Delight ink and used Paper Snips to trim. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and adhered it in place.

The inside Matte Base is our standard 4″×5 1/4″ in Very Vanilla. I used the “Fa (boo)lous” sentiment stamped in Daffodil Delight Ink to complete the project.

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and will join me again soon for another edition. Until next time – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!!!

OnStage 2021

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

Today I’d just like to take a few moments to reflect upon the last year as a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator as conversations begin about OnStage. For those who aren’t familiar with Stampin’ Up!, OnStage is one of Stampin’ Up’s Annual Events exclusive to Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. It’s an exciting time as we celebrate our achievements and get exclusive sneak peeks at everything that’s to come.

Under “normal”, non-COVID19 circumstances OnStage would be held in person however, with COVID-19 running rampant, the last 2 years, OnStage has been a Virtual Event.

The 2020 OnStage event was incredible and I learned so much from participating and I’m so excited to be participating again this year. I’m truly hoping that Stampin’ Up! will continue to offer a Virtual Event for us Demonstrators that are just starting out and don’t quite generate enough income to be able to attend in person events. I would REALLY miss this!!!

Participating in OnStage is a great way to jumpstart your Stampin’ Up! business or learn new tips and tricks and advance your stamping knowledge. In addition to being able to preview Stampin’ Up’s new products coming in their January-June Mini Catalog, you’ll be able to preorder new goodies and jumpstart your advancement into a new year!!

What a year it’s been!! I did it! I’m still standing!! That in itself is worth celebrating. That was the ultimate goal through navigating through COVID-19. As a newer Demonstrator, not having a large Customer base, my main focus was to remain an active Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator. To keep creating, to keep inspiring and absolutely to continue sharing what I absolutely love so much!

I’ve managed to grow my Blog, I’ve managed to grow a small Customer base, I gained an absolutely amazing new team member, my Blog is thriving with new readers and followers, my Facebook business page, Instagram and Pinterest base has grown and I started doing live videos!!

My Cards and Creations Blog is definitely something that I’m very proud of!! Last year, I had 1200 views to this Blog in just a few short months. I thought that was pretty good for a first year. My end Stats for this Stampin’ Up year are currently 5,656 and still counting!! That’s incredible!! I would just like to thank my Team, my readers and followers and those who follow on my social media accounts for this tremendous amount of success this year!! Your support has been incredible and I look forward to this next year making it bigger and better than ever!!

I would also like to thank my Customers for continuing to support my growing business. Without you, I’m truly nothing.

To my downline, Jolina Rodriguez, Thank you so much for joining my Team this year!! It’s going to be an incredible journey with you by my side and I look forward to seeing your success in Stampin’ Up! I will always be your biggest fan and support you in any way!!

Last but never least, to my family and friends who continue to stand by my side, support me, cheer me on and 100% believe in my talents and abilities – I have the absolute BEST family and friends a person could ask for!! I love you so much!!

Delivering Cheer Fall Card

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator from Joshua,TX.

With the weather still in the high 90’s here in North Texas, we’re dreaming of cooler temperatures, autumn leaves, sweaters, bonfires and great big pots of good ole Texas chili!!

Although we’re still at least a couple of months away, dreaming of it has it’s benefits. This card for example created with Stampin’ Up’s new *Delivering Cheer Stamp Set* along with just a few other goodies in my craft room from the July-December Mini Catalog.

*Supply List*

Delivering Cheer Stamp Set

Festive & Bright Bundle

*Backstory*

Many moons ago, Stampin’ Up! released a Host Stamp Set named “Hand Delivered” that was very similar to the new Delivering Cheer. It was by far one of my most favorite Stamp Sets ever made. And of course…Stampin’ Up! retired it!! So as you can imagine my excitement when I saw the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set.

But it kind of has me thinking that Stampin’ Up! just MIGHT bring out of the time vault the Hand Delivered Stamp Set but we’ve got to start putting some pressure on them now to bring it back!!! And I’m determined to start a movement for it to happen so I can break it out and create with it all over again. So if my readers would help me out by emailing them, taking to social media and using #stampinup #handdelivered #bringitback I’d greatly appreciate the support!!

*Measurements*

Cardbase – 4 1/4″×5 1/2″

Matte Base – 4″×5 1/4″

DSP – 3 3/4″×5″

Be Dazzling – 2 1/2″

*Instructions*

The instructions on this one are pretty easy. I stamped the woman image of a scrap of Basic White Cardstock and hand colored her using the Stampin’ Blend Markers and then used my Paper Snips to fussy cut her out.

I adhered the Matte Base to the Cardbase using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper to the Harvest Meadow DSP.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Harvest Meadow DSP to the Matte Base and also added Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Mini Dimensionals to the back of the lady and adhered her over the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper.

I stamped the “Blessed” sentiment in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a scrap of Basic White Cardstock and used the Festive Dies and my Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine to die cut the label. It’s adhered down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The inside Cardbase is our standard 4″×5 1/4″ in Basic White Cardstock and is stamped in Crumb Cake Ink. The inside sentiment is the “Warmest wishes” sentiment from the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set.

*Reminder*

The Be Dazzling Specialty Paper is one of our Sale-a-bration items and can be yours absolutely *FREE* with a $50.00 purchase from my online store. Sale-a-bration will end September 30th and is only available while supplies last!

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ll join me again soon for another edition. Until next time – Happy Stampin’ Everyone!!
