About Me

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.

Fall Teacher Gifts – Kylie’s International Blog Highlight

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop in September, so please do go vote for me.

Stampin' Up! coffee-themed fall teachers gifts with Painted Autumn paper, Coffee Cups framelits, Merry Cafe stamps, Seasonal Layers thinlits - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month’s theme for the Blog Highlight is Teacher’s Gifts. I really struggle with 3D projects, so I was really happy when this one came together. We’re coming up on fall/autumn next month, so I went with a fall theme for my teacher’s gift. Most of the products I’m using today are from the Holiday Catalog, available September 1 to customers (now to demonstrators). I’m featuring the Painted Autumn designer series paper (both the background and the coffee cup are from this paper), Merry Café stamp set, Coffee Cups framelits and Copper Sequin Trim (both available now), and the new Jute Twine. I love how these things all work together to make a beautiful gift box!

Here’s a better angle to show you the box. I decorated one of the new Acetate Card Boxes that are coming in the new Holiday Catalog. I’m really excited about these boxes — you can put in five standard cards & envelopes, or you can do like I did and include a single card with a gift card. I don’t have my hands on the pumpkin-flavored M&Ms yet, but you might be able to fit a bag in the box along with your card.

I love that Stampin’ Up! is coming out with a coffee set that coordinates with the existing dies but has fall and winter holidays included. That’s how I made the coffee cup. Then the leaves are cut using the Seasonal Layers thinlits and both Copper Foil Sheets and the Painted Autumn paper. The pumpkin is fussy-cut out of the paper. This paper is SO beautiful.

Inside the box is a thank you card to match, only this time I have used the stamps from Coffee Café along with Merry Café.

Inside the card is a Starbuck’s gift card.

Thanks for visiting my blog today; I hope you like my project. Make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog to vote for my card and check out the other amazing projects in the gallery. I would love to be chosen to do the next international blog hop!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt bundle with Quilt Builder framelits and Quilt Top Embossing folder, Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I have a sweet baby card for you today! This is another Holiday Catalog sneak peek. It’s the Quilted Christmas suite, and it was the first thing on my preorder list. As you can see, it’s not just for Christmas. I think this is one of the most versatile things in the Holiday Catalog.

 

I made my card using the colors from Fab Friday and the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch (I flipped the sketch upside down).

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt bundle with Quilt Builder framelits and Quilt Top Embossing folder, Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I stamped the outline of the quilted piece in Melon Mambo, then the inner pieces in Lemon-Lime Twist and Flirty Flamingo. Then I cut it out with both the outline die and the die that cuts the stitching. I cut out the overlaid Melon Mambo piece with another die. There are so many coordinating dies in this set.

I embossed the Whisper White piece with the new Quilt Top embossing folder. I had a hard time deciding whether to use the embossed side or the debossed side, because they both look so great!

Stampin' Up! punch tip - Punch twice to punch a different, smaller shape - Everyday Label punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I used Moon Baby for the sentiment, with the new Everyday Label punch from the Holiday Catalog. I punched the sentiment out twice, as shown. I love how you can get multiple shapes from one punch!

I finished the card with some Silver Mini Sequin Trim behind the quilted piece and Lemon-Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt bundle with Quilt Builder framelits and Quilt Top Embossing folder, Lemon-Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and Silver Mini Sequin Trim - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For the inside, I stamped some stitching from the Quilted Christmas stamp set, and the sentiment from Moon Baby. The sentiment is on a punched out circle only because I tried stamping straight on the cardstock without using my MISTI. *eye roll* Yeah, I will never learn my lesson.

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: Spooky Cat

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Spooky Cat bundle with black rhinestones - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My favorite Halloween bundle from the new Holiday Catalog is easily Spooky Cat. First of all, I love a good punch bundle, and Spooky Cat has a cat punch! I seriously squealed when I saw that. And the stamp set has so many adorable images and sentiments. It’s fun. Very Harry Potter-y.

I made this card for the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge, because when I saw the sketch, I immediately thought Spooky Cat. I pretty much followed the sketch exactly.

For my kitty and the repeated “Happy Halloween” stamping, I used the Baby Wipe technique with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, and Peekaboo Peach reinkers. I love these colors together for fall.

For the inside of the card, I just punched a cat and glued it on.

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek: White Christmas

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Christmas Staircase thinlits, Quilt Top Embossing Folder, Christmas Pines stamps, new Champagne Foil Sheets

I got my preorder for the brand new Holiday Catalog this week, and I just had to play along with this Great Outdoors challenge from The Paper Players.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Christmas Staircase thinlits, Quilt Top Embossing Folder, Christmas Pines stamps, new Champagne Foil Sheets

This card is not hard to make at all, but it is very time consuming. I suggest starting by using both of the full swag dies from the Christmas Staircase thinlits (coming September 1, available now for demonstrators) and cutting about 20 swags. Also cut out the full tree framelit from the same dies in Whisper White. Starting at the outside and on the bottom, glue down a swag on each side, right up to the edge of the tree. Then glue two swags on the inside. Do another row of swags right above it, again starting from the outside and moving in so the middle branches are on top. Continue all the way to the top of the tree.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Christmas Staircase thinlits, Quilt Top Embossing Folder, Christmas Pines stamps, new Champagne Foil Sheets

Once you’ve gone all the way up the tree, use the small branch dies to cut branches for the very top of the tree. Glue these on, then use more of these to fill in any holes in the tree. To assemble the card, I used a Whisper White Thick card base, a regular Whisper White frame (4″x5-1/4″), and then another frame (3-3/4″x5″) using the brand new Champagne Foil Sheets (coming September 1). Make sure to cut the centers out of any foil sheets that will be hidden behind other panels. The foil is too pretty to hide! My top panel is embossed with the new Quilt Top embossing folder (coming September 1) and measures 3-1/2″x4-3/4″. The tree is popped up on Dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog sneak peek - Christmas Staircase thinlits, Quilt Top Embossing Folder, Christmas Pines stamps, new Champagne Foil Sheets

I heat embossed the sentiment (from Christmas Pines) with Silver embossing powder on a strip of Whisper White. I flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch. Under the sentiment is a strip of Silver Mini Sequin Trim. I’m hoping Stampin’ Up! plans to come out with all of the metallic things in Champagne — embossing powder, sequin trim, and I’d love to see the return of Champagne Glimmer Paper. I topped the tree with a star cut from Champagne Foil Sheets with another die from the Christmas Staircase thinlits.

Some of the products I used are available now, and the rest will be available from my Stampin’ Up! store on September 1st. Or you can join my team today and add these products, including the sneak peeks, to your Starter Kit!

Swirly Imprints

Hi, everyone! I’m sorry for my long absence. My stepdad died suddenly and very unexpectedly, so I have not been able to create or blog. I am trying to make a bunch of projects now and get blog posts scheduled for the next couple of months, as I will be in and out of town helping my mom with things for a while. My live Facebook videos may be sporadic, but I will try to have regular content posting on the blog.

Anyway, on to today’s card. I realized I never finished blogging about my Creative Crew projects. I think this one is my favorite for August. I just love all of the bright colors!

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up stamp set with Up & Away thinlits - watercolor imprint background - embossing paste, texture paste - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is my card for the Love a Technique challenge, and I chose the Watercolor Imprints technique. I don’t have a lot of stencils, and the ones I do weren’t very good for this kind of technique, so I chose to make my own stencils using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits dies. I took the big wave scribble die and cut three of them out of a Window Sheet. These acetate sheets are thicker and harder to cut than cardstock, so I used the Precision Base Plate and ran the sandwich through twice to cut each stencil.

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up stamp set with Up & Away thinlits - watercolor imprint background - embossing paste, texture paste - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I used non-SU watercolor paper (I forgot to order any with my last order!). I swiped on Lemon-Lime Twist at the bottom, then Pool Party, then Tempting Turquoise, then Bermuda Bay. I spritzed with a Stampin’ Spritzer to activate the colors, as instructed in the tutorial. I laid the stencils across the paper, starting with the Pool Party section, and had one stencil over each section. I weighed down the edges of the stencils with clear blocks. My first two or three attempts at this technique didn’t really work out, and I think it’s because I didn’t make sure the wet ink was touching the stencil. So make sure to weigh down your stencil. After the background was mostly dry, I removed the stencils (carefully) and hit the damp spots with the Heat Tool to finish it.

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up stamp set with Up & Away thinlits - watercolor imprint background - embossing paste, texture paste - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I had decided that the hot air balloons in the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits dies would be perfect for this background, as the swirly layers made me think of a windy day, and the month of August makes me think of the Spirit of Boise hot air balloon festival. We loved going to the festival when we lived in Boise, and I think of it every year and want to go back for it.

I used the clouds stencil from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and Embossing Paste to make some clouds in my sky. I smeared the paste on just a few of the clouds, let it dry a little, then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds glitter on, then set it with the Heat Tool. Hitting the Embossing Paste with the Heat Tool makes it bubble up a little, and I love the extra texture that comes with it.

I embossed the hot air balloon in white on Thick Whisper White cardstock, then very lightly colored it in with Melon Mambo ink and an Aqua Painter, then wiped the excess ink off the embossed parts. I finished the card off with a strip of ribbon and the sentiment.

I stamped a smaller balloon in Melon Mambo on the inside of the card.

Lake Life scrapbook page

I’m participating in a challenge for the month of August where we make a page every day. I don’t expect to actually get 31 pages done, but I figure if I participate, I’ll at least get a few done.
Stampin' Up! scrapbook page with Colorful Seasons, Swirly Bird, Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, and Wood Textures DSP stack

This is my page, based on this layout and page by Lyssa Zwolanek.

I changed up a few things, like the color and a few extras. I’ll use this for some of our pictures we took at the lake a few weeks ago. If I’d had a Detailed Mosquito thinlit, that would be more appropriate, but we did see quite a few dragonflies, too. And also, no one would buy a Detailed Mosquito thinlit. You can find my full supply list below.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight bundle with Colorful Seasons and Ruffled dynamic embossing folder - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is my card for the inspiration challenge at Splitcoaststampers this month. I went simple with this one.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight bundle with Colorful Seasons and Ruffled dynamic embossing folder - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card base is Pool Party, and I stamped the sentiment, from Colorful Seasons, in Tempting Turquoise. I embossed the piece of Lemon-Lime Twist cardstock with the Ruffled dynamic embossing folder and glued it down.

Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight bundle with Colorful Seasons and Ruffled dynamic embossing folder - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I stamped nine daisies (always stamp with one petal pointing down on your cardstock so it’s easy to line up the punch), punched them out, and layered three punched daisies for each flower with a Dimensional between each layer. Then I added those gorgeous Gold Faceted Gems to the flower centers. This card is so easy to make, even if you’re new to stamping.

Oh Hello Friend

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle with Coffee Cups framelits and Oh So Eclectic - watercolor wash - ice cream handmade card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is my card for the Creative Crew’s color challenge this month at Splitcoaststampers. Our theme this month is vacation/staycation, and that means… summer, which I only tolerate for the peaches. So I am saying, “Oh Hello Friend” to this tasty ice cream.

This is my last month on the Creative Crew. I am honored to have been asked, and it has challenged me creatively for sure.

The colors are greens and brown and a light pink. I decided to simplify the color palette and chose Chocolate Chip, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Powder Pink.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle with Coffee Cups framelits and Oh So Eclectic - watercolor wash - ice cream handmade card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I started with a Lemon-Lime Twist watercolor wash on Shimmery White cardstock. When the Lemon-Lime Twist was mostly dry, I filled in a little around the edges of the wash with Powder Pink. The ice cream and cup are from the Coffee Cafe bundle. I stamped the cup with the floral bouquet from Wood Words.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Watercolor

 

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

This month our theme is Watercolor. This made me happy, because it is one of my favorite techniques!

Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden with Petal Garden Memories & More, heat embossing - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My first card uses the Petal Garden Suite. I stamped and heat embossed the lovely lattice stamp from Graceful Garden twice on the Very Vanilla card base. Then I grabbed two cards from the Petal Garden Memories & More pack and glued those down. I stamped “I adore you” in Old Olive on one of the M&M cards.

Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden with Petal Garden Memories & More, heat embossing - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I embossed the big rose from Graceful Garden in gold on Very Vanilla. I watercolored the flower with Calypso Coral ink. This looks so fancy, as if I used some advanced technique, but it is so easy. I grabbed some Calypso Coral ink with my Aqua Painter and started coloring in the center of the rose, then worked my way out. That’s really all it took.

I used Old Olive (watered way down) to color the leaves and stem. Then I popped the rose up on Dimensionals. This card was SO easy and fast!

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Wood Words, and Foil Frenzy paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My second card uses the Foil Frenzy Suite, including the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Foil Frenzy paper. I first did a wash of Tangerine Tango on the watercolor paper. When that was dry, I stamped the floral bouquet from Wood Words in Tangerine Tango. I stamped it twice without reinking the stamp (you can see that the stamped flowers are lighter in the upper right part of the card). I added the watercolor paper to a Soft Sky card base.

Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous with Foil Frenzy paper and Wood Words - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I added a strip of Foil Frenzy paper, a flagged banner for the sentiment (stamped in Early Espresso), and a Soft Sky stitched circle. I stamped three of the two-step roses in Peekaboo Peach (lighter, solid parts) and Tangerine Tango (the outlines), then fussy cut them. I also added two leaves behind one of the roses.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way back to me so you can get a ton of watercolor inspiration.
