Stampin’ UP! Sparkle of the Season and Time of Giving Bundles

August 30, 2021

Ok, this may get confusing but I will try to keep things straight…it’s just the Stampin’ UP! Sparkle of the Season Bundle and the Stampin’ UP! Time of Giving Bundles go so well together…I just went a little crazzzzzy mixing them up! And, I used the wonderful Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration 2021 Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper- a great backdrop for the wreath.

So the card below uses the Stampin’ UP! Sparkle of the Season Bundle with one of the small tags from the Stampin’ UP! Tailor Made Tags. The sweet little leaves from the Seasonal Swirls Dies in that bundle pop right onto the twiggy wreath and those little pumpkins…oh, so adorable!

So, then I was playing with the Time of Giving Bundle and loved the leaves in Giving Gifts Dies in that bundle, too…so I added them to the twiggy wreath…and loved that, too! A bit more of a statement with the leaves, huh? The “thankful” come in the Time of Giving stamp set. I guess, I could have just used it on the card with the bigger leaves…but I am not going to take any more photos…lol. See, I got all mixed up with how well they work with each other!

I used the cute little leaf stamp in the Sparkle of the Season stamp set for the inside along with a quarter of the wreath on the corner

Stampin’ UP! Peaceful Cabin for the Summer

August 27, 2021

It’s time for a summer Stampin’ UP! Peaceful Cabin…

Isn’t that sky just beautiful? I cheated and used the Stampin’ UP! Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper! But you can easily make a summer sky like I did on this card with the Stampin’ UP! Counting Sheep 2021 Sale-a bration Gift with a $50 or $100 purchase…Check out all the items you can get HERE during Sale-a-bration going on now.

Stamping the sentiment on the DSP adds a nice touch to the card. The font is perfect floating up in the sky- all I needed was an airplane pulling it!

Stampin’ UP! Peaceful Cabin Bundle for the Winter Video Tutorial

August 25, 2021

I have a few tips for you using the Stampin’ UP! Peaceful Cabin Bundle found in the July-December 2021 Stampin’ UP! Catalog. The Peaceful Place Designer Series paper accented with silver foil is just gorgeous in person! So many pretty patterns!

Here is a video showing how to put it together…super easy but helps to see it!

I forgot to show you how you can die cut the white cabin with the detailed die and the sloping landscape/outline die at the same time. Sometimes I do it separately just to be careful so I don’t mess up my die but they do go through together easily- taping them keeps them from moving and any possible damage running through the machine.

I just love how the Silver Metallic Mesh Ribbon gives a subtle glam to the Elegant Tag Punch while allowing the details of the punch to be seen.

I placed some Silver Foil behind the windows on the cabin to add some more dimension.

Some simple stamped trees on the inside.

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, Basic Gray: 4″ x 5-1/4″, DSP: 3-3/4″ x 5″, White for cabin: 2-1/2″ x 3-3/4″, Smoky Slate cabin: 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″, Silver Foil: 1″ x 6″ for trees and window insert

Stampin’ UP! Time of Giving Bundle with Tailor Made Tags

August 23, 2021

With these high 90’s days, a frosty snowflake Christmas card was welcome in my stamp room!

I was intrigued by the Stampin’ UP! Time of Giving Bundle when I first saw it in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. I knew it coordinated with the Tailor Made Tags which I had… so I got the bundle not knowing how much I would absolutely LOVE them! You will be seeing a few cards coming up with various items from this fantastic Stampin’ UP! Time of Giving Bundle. But really, you don’t NEED the Tailor Made Tags to use this bundle but they are super, super cool! to work with the Stampin’ UP! Gift Giving Dies.

To make the Real Red Santa with his sleigh tag, I just laid the Santa die inside the Tailor Made Tag and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. Then, I die cut a Tailor Made Tag from the Stampin’ UP! Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and adhered the Santa tag to the DSP. The snowflake embossing was done with one of the 3D Wintry Embossing Folders. The ribbon is retired but was Sahara Sand color so I used it!

A few little snowflakes finish off the inside…

Stampin’ UP! Great Tidings Bundle

August 20, 2021

Is it really a holiday catalog if it does not have a nativity or wise men in it? Of course not! So, the Stampin’ UP! July-December 2021 Catalog is official with the Stampin’ UP! Great Tidings Bundle.

It is always so hard to get a good photo when foil is involved…but I think you can tell the retired Stampin’ UP! Subtle Embossing Folder did its job to make the foil look great on the card.

I used royal colors of Shaded Spruce, Night of Navy, and Rich Razzleberry. I just had to add some bling so I placed a Gold Metallic Pearl on each king. That Razzleberry king gave me a little run for my money on where to put the pearl;)
