About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

While I was filming, I went ahead and made a fun second card to go with it.

Snowy Impressions

Hello! Welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop! We’re a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world sharing what we love with you. We are all in Kylie Bertucci’s training group and having a wonderful time growing our Stampin’ Up! businesses. I’m Sarah Fleming from the United States.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Showcase limited-time promotion - available Nov 1, or join my team to add it to your Starter Kit - Snow Is Glistening stamps with Snowfall Thinlits dies - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my project, I’ve made a winter birthday card using my — hands down — favorite die set EVER. I just got these in yesterday and already can’t stop playing with them. My card base is Thick Whisper White (4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″). I’ve added a skinny mat of Gold Foil (4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″), and my main panel is Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″). I used Big Shot Embossing Mats with my dies turned the wrong way to create impressions of the snowflakes (I first painted the back of the dies with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint so the impressions would be painted gold). Then I cut the same snowflakes out of the new White Velvet Sheets and glued the centers of the snowflakes into their impressions. This technique is called Reverse Die Impressions, and I will be demonstrating how to make this card on my video tomorrow. You can catch that on YouTube or Facebook, as it will be uploaded to both sites. Make sure to subscribe while you’re there!

Here’s a side view so you can better see how the shimmer paint looks in the impressions. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold, punched it out with the Everyday Label punch (then snipped off some bits), and added that to the card, along with some basic Rhinestones.

I heat embossed a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet and three snowflakes from Snow Is Glistening on the inside of the card.

Happiness Surrounds

Stampin' Up! handmade autumn fall card using Happiness Surrounds limited time stamp set and limited time Snowfall thinlits dies with Alpine Sports thinlits dies and Brusho - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! I hope you’re having a good week so far. I’m excited to show you a sneak peek project today using the Snowflake Showcase limited-time products. These items are available to demonstrators now (you can add them to a $99 Starter Kit right now!) and will be available to customers for the month of November, while supplies last. Judging from the demonstrator pre-order, these things will be hugely popular.

This week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge is a “Fall Florals” theme challenge. We’d love for you to play along this week!

This is one of those over-the-top cards that uses a lot of supplies, but I just couldn’t help myself once I got going. You can easily simplify this by using fewer colors of cardstock and ink or leaving off some of the embellisments. My card starts with a Balmy Blue card base, 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″. Next I have a piece of watercolor paper, 4″ x 5-1/4″. I first stamped the three wreathy things in Cajun Craze, then overstamped each of those with Versamark. The Stamparatus makes this so easy. I heat embossed the wreaths with Clear embossing powder. Then I wet down the area I wanted to watercolor and sprinkled on Prussian Blue Brusho. After the Brusho crystals activated, I used my Aqua Painter to blend and smooth the color. Then, after I was sure I’d ruined my background because the Brusho was too dark, I dabbed quite a lot of color up with a baby wipe. After I was happy with the background, I put the background inside an empty Paper Pumpkin box and dipped my Aqua Painter in Bright Copper Shimmer Paint, then tapped the water brush on the edge of the box several times to splatter the paint onto the background.

I stamped the flowers in Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie and cut them with the stunning Snowfall thinlits dies. I cut a few other pieces out of Cajun Craze cardstock, Vellum, and Copper Foil. I added these with glue and Dimensionals, then stamped the sentiment in Old Olive. I cut the sentiment out using a die from the Alpine Sports thinlits. I finished off the card with some Clear Epoxy Droplets colored with the Dark Cajun Craze Blends marker.

Inside I stamped the wreath again in Cajun Craze and added a die cut flower to the center.
