International Blog Highlight

Hi Everyone!

I am super excited to share a Blog Highlight that I am participating in.  The blog highlight is being hosted by Kylie Bertucci from Australia.  I had the pleasure of participating in a training session she held and then meeting her on the Greece incentive trip this past summer.  Her and her husband Bruno are so awesome!

12 Weeks of Christmas (Week 1)

Hello and welcome to WEEK 1 of my 12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS.  

Every Wednesday (I started October 2, 2019), I will be going Live on Facebook sharing ideas for the season.  I have fall and holiday projects which include 3D as well as cards.  Go to Stamp with Lisa Brown on Facebook, LIKE my page and you will receive notification.

Hard to believe in that short amount of time, we will be in full holiday mode.  Weather will be cold and we will be running around trying to get everything together.  So lets start our creative planning and holiday projects now!  I am here to give you ideas and inspiration... so if your creativity just isn't working these days, please feel free to use my designs.  At Stampin' Up! we call that CASE'ing.  Copy And Share Everything.  I think there are some pretty creative and crafty people out there, with amazing ideas. 

Week 1:  Project 1... card using Harvest Hellos Bundle (all supplies I used is listed below).

Crumb Cake Card Base is 11-1/2" x 5-1/2"  and a Pretty Peacock mat that is 5-1/4" x 4"

Check out my Alternative Card

Did you see my project from last week?  It was titled Come To Gather and Give Thanks... if not SEE IT HERE .  It features the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper, perfect for fall.  It was my submission for a Holiday Catalog Card Challenge! 

So you may be asking, why did I do an alternate project?  Well, I wanted my class members to make the card but I did not have enough of the Wood elements (Tags & Feathers) used on the original card so I swapped over to the Harvest Hello Bundle instead.  Isn't that pumpkin cool?  I punched the pumpkin out of the New Mercury Glass Acetate.  This stuff is so cool and it comes in two designs in the pack.  Below is more of a crackle.

Here is a close up on the Mercury Glass Acetate...   We punched a pumpkin from our mat card stock Pear Pizzazz and adhered it behind the acetate.

I hope you have a chance to get some of this Acetate and use it on one of your projects. 

TIP:  you can color the back of the acetate with your Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  Just pick a color that coordinates with your project. 

Reminder:  September 30, 2019 is last day for BOGO Designer Paper sale.  BUY 3 GET 1 FREE.     Don't miss out on a Free pack of paper. 

Be sure to check out my previous post to see all the card dimensions.

Have you heard of NAMI

Have you heard of NAMI?  I am completely in awe of this organization; with what they stand for, offer and do.  This makes my card all the more special.  

I held my monthly card class this past weekend and chose to use the stamp set called "Nature's Beauty".  To me, it is just a simple and serene stamp set with wonderful drawings of forest animals.  In most catalogs, Stampin' Up! offers one set to donate profits to a charitable organization.  And the 2019 Holiday catalog is no exception with this set. 

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! releases a weekly update to us.  They share inside information, give sneak peaks, or advise whatever may be happening within the company and needs to be shared.  (Good reason to join my team to get all the inside scoop).  In today's updates, they finally announced the list of organizations benefiting from each and every sale of the "Nature's Beauty" stamp set, and in the U.S. it is an organization called NAMI.  

NAMI stands for the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  Please take a couple of minutes and check out their website.  It is a wonderful organization that does so much good.  I was surprised to find so many local branches in my back yard.  Did you know mental illness has or will touch every single one of us?  If it is the one thing you can do, it is to educate yourself and help support this amazing organization and order the Nature's Beauty stamp set with me today.

So it is 'with gratitude' that I just happened to make this card and I share my gratitude to Stampin' Up supporting NAMI!

My full supply list is below, showing product used to make this card, but here are the dimensions:

Very Vanilla card front (5-3/8 x 4-1/8) was embossed with the Woodlands folder. 

I used Sponge Daubers and Balmy Blue ink for my sky.  The tree and weed sprig are stamped in Mossy Meadow, grass in Old Olive, the deer stamped in Memento black and then colored with Soft Suede Blends (light and dark).  The Smokey Slate Blends were used to highlight the shadows under the tree, weeds, and deer.  

The deer is stamped on Very Vanilla that is 2-1/2 x 3-3/4.  Soft Suede card stock was used to mat the deer piece and cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  

I hope you enjoyed this post and also can take a minute to learn about NAMI.
