Stampin’ UP! Friends are like Seashells Bundle for PP#521

December 18, 2020

Claire had a wonderful challenge at The Paper Players #521 this round.

*OMG! I just saw when I was uploading my card that the amazing Design Team Member Ann Schach did a card with this set for the samples! Honestly, I did not see it before I made mine!! Oh gosh…isn’t hers just stunning?!? It shows the versatility of the Stampin’ UP! Sand and Sea Suite.

I was itching to use the NEW Seashells Embossing Folder from the Stampin’ UP! Sand and Sea Suite that includes the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle coming out January 5th in the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog. This is super simple, kids. Die cut the shells with seaweed, tuck it in the embossing folder and run through your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine! Done lickety split until I played around with the sentiment- first I did a white tag with black embossing, then a black tag with white embossing, but finally settled on black with silver embossing! I used the Stampin’ UP! Label Me Pretty Punch since it was shaped kinda seashell-y.

This is going to be a fantastic suite to play with- the Designer Series Paper is so, so pretty!!! The large die seen here can be stamped on and cut apart or just embossed and cut apart- so versatile along with other little sea and sand images to die cut. See Ann’s sample to see that in action!

Thanks for stopping by, friends…

December 16, 2020

Here is a quick and easy card ensemble you can make using the Stampin’ UP! Festive Corners Stamp Set. Make two of each and package them up for a sweet gift this holiday season.

I used the Stampin’ UP! Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on all three cards along with the Stitched Rectangles Dies for the each sentiment.

This card uses the Stampin’ UP! Tree Punch and the Tasteful Touches Embossing Folder.

This card uses the Stampin’ UP! Cat Punch.

This card uses the Stampin’ UP! Heart Punch Pack.

Stampin’ UP! Boho Indigo Product Medley

December 14, 2020

I liked Jacquie’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #465 this week- simple but inspiring.

I had some 3/4″ strips of the gorgeous Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper left over from a class and thought I would put them to use on this card. You can see that card HERE.

I adhered the Boho Indigo DSP strips to a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and cut out the front panel using the largest Stitched Rectangle Die. I actually cut out the Stitched Rectangle tag at the same time. I adhered the frame to the card base and then added a 2″ wide Night of Navy tag under the smaller middle rectangle. I started with a 2″ x 4-1/8″ Night of Navy tag and then punched it at the top with the Fancy Label tag. I then popped up the tag where I cut it out adding some dimension.

I love the vintage look of the DSP and the gold accents on the tags, flowers, and ribbon in the Boho Indigo Product Medley so I added some Gilded Gems. I had one posey left and the bead was a little off center on it but hey, that makes it shabby chic, huh?

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
