Stampin’ UP! Expressions in Friendship Jan-June 2022 Mini Host Stamp

May 27, 2022

There is still time left to get this Host Stamp Set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. It is around until the end of June. It is adorable. I showed this card to my little 16 month old grandie daughter, and she signed “swing” with her fingers:)

I chose to spotlight the girl swinging so I did not have to color all the leaves on the tree…hahaha. But in all honesty, spotlighting really works well with lined images like this stamp set.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

It is such a sweet stamp with nice sentiments! You can get one with a qualifying order of $150 with your host rewards:)

Stampin’ UP! Vintage Tools with Split Card Texture and Deckled Rectangle Dies Video Tutorial

May 25, 2022

I do love masculine cards and always wish there were more sets in the Stampin’ UP! catalog!! So, I made quick use of the Stampin’ UP! Vintage Tools and made a fun fold:)

It’s masculine and neutral so it’s a diagonal Tic Tac Toe 162.

Here’s a video to see how I made it…

I used the NEW Deckled Rectangles Dies for the front and the inside of the flipping part. It is nice to have another set of fun Rectangles Dies!

You can see how the Split Card Texture Dies cut into the card stock.

I used EVERY stamp in the set!!! (applause)

I used the Rustic Metallic Dots on one and the Classic Matte Dots on the other…

Measurements: Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side, Split card die piece: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Black Flipping part: 2-7/8″ x 3-1/4″ with black band 3-3/4″ x 1-1/2″ scored in 1/2″ on 3-3/4″ side with sentiment 1″ x 2-1/2″ (bigger if using the die), Basic White inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Basic White stamped tool on flipping mechanism: 2-5/8″ x 3″ (bigger if using die)

Stampin’ UP! Garden Grandeur Host Stamp

May 23, 2022

Did you notice the NEW Host Stamp in the 2022-2023 Stampin’ UP! Annual Catalog? It is so pretty with the two-step stamping to add some color! The sentiment comes from the Stampin’ UP! Wisteria Wishes stamp set.

I used some of the NEW Host DSP called Design a Daydream on my card, too! The paper picked my colors for me…Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, and the retired Powder Pink. I do admit I used Pear Pizzazz instead of the listed Old Olive, and Powder Pink matched better than the peachy Petal Pink for me.

I even had some retired Powder Pink sparkly ribbon to add with the NEW Iridescent Pearls- hard to photograph but in person definitely noticeably different from our standard pearls.

I just love that little bud…a simple inside for my card.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
