Stampin’ UP! Nuts and Bolts with Sweet Talk DSP Double Easel Video Tutorial

January 19, 2022

Some cards just make me giggle…and this is one of them. I spent the “day” making this card while my little one year old grandie daughter danced away in her walker by my desk throwing all her toys at me and laughing when I had to pick them up. I am a slow card maker trying so many colors and layouts to begin with but with a baby beside me, it actually took me all day!

The card is a Double Easel Card with two easels in it!

Take a look how I made it…

The Stampin’ UP! Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper is so cute- so colorful and whimsical. It is definitely a DSP that can be used even without the awesome Stampin’ UP! Sweet Conversations Bundle. You can see how sweet the DSP looks with the adorable Stampin’ UP! Nuts and Bolts stamp set. Those little robots are just too cute…and in purple no less…

Please note the smaller easel is 2-1/4″ x 5″ not 2-1/8″ x 5″ as I mistakenly said

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, Front panel: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, DSP on front: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and on small easel 2″ x 2-1/4″: Smaller Easel: 2-1/4″ x 5″ scored at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2. Next to smallest Stitched rectangle for the sentiment and the largest Stitched Rectangle for the robot/hearts image. Use the next largest Layering Square to border the Stitched Rectangles.

Stampin’ UP! December 2021 Paper Pumpkin “Lots of Pun”

January 17, 2022

When I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #518, I knew I wanted to use one of the “punny” sentiments and images from the Stampin’ UP! December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun.

I chose the sunny side up egg image…

We moved a few years ago from the house my kids grew up in to a downsized house on a lake nearby- hopefully our last move! One of my favorite things about the house is the round table we had made to hold 8-10 people in our dining room since our rectangle table would not fit because the room was square. The room connects to the kitchen, and I feel it kind of looks like we made it that way since it is not an eat-in kitchen. The table cloth on that table is a black and white buffalo check! I smile every time I walk by it:) And, may I say it is a great place to stamp with my FLA stamping class. Everyone can see each other as we stamp. So, I just had to dress up the front of my card with a checked table cloth with the egg image tucked in the right lower corner.

Are you seeing the egg in an egg…now isn’t that punny?

I made another one with the sentiment with the egg with more white space.

Stampin’ UP! Flowing Flowers

January 14, 2021

I want to thank Anne Marie Hile at the Paper Players # 573 for the color inspiration for this trio of cards:) I inked up the floral image from the Stampin’ UP! Flowing Flowers on the front of my cards with Pale Papaya ink and then wiped off the leaves and the dotty stuff by the leaves. Then I colored on my red rubber stamps with my Calypso Coral and Just Jade Stampin’ Write Markers. Then I huffed and I puffed and stamped the image down! A few embellies finished the cards.

A BIRTHDAY card…

A THANK YOU card…

A JUST BECAUSE or ALL-OCCASION card…
