Stampin’ UP! Perched in a Tree

July 18, 2022

I played around with my Stampin’ UP! Perched in a Tree Bundle on Sunday afternoon. I worked with some soft colors of Mint Macaron and Petal Pink along with Smoky Slate.

The Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper has a great array of colors in it with various patterns of gingham plaids. I liked the tone on tone feel of the Mint Macaron with Petal Pink. I added some light coloring with a Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend marker- the lighter one.

I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #170 – Die Cuts, Stripes, Leaves.

I am counting my stripes in the plaid and on the bark of the tree branches:)

Stampin’ UP! Hippest Hippos with Hippo Dies- Sale-a-bration July-August 2022

July 15, 2022

Oh, just look at the fingernail polish on these Hippo Ballerinas!

I had fun with these cards…using the Stampin’ UP! Hippest Hippos and the coordinating Hippo Dies available as FREE gifts with a $50 purchase during July-August 2022 Sale-a-bration. Oh, and I set her on stage in front of the Silver and Gold 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper available during Sale-a-bration, too! I made the curtain with the Basic Borders Dies.

You know she needed some bling for the big recital so I added some rhinestones.

I made 5 cards in Real Red, Tahitian Tide, Mango Melody, Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo. I didn’t take a close up of them all…cause I mean, if you have seen one hippo in a tutu, you have seen them all, right?

Stampin’ UP! Ringed with Nature Bundle Book Binding Gatefold Card Video Tutorial

July 13, 2022

I combined a few fun folds into one- a Book Binding Gatefold Card.

I used the NEW Ringed with Nature Bundle and the SALE-A-BRATION JULY-AUGUST 2022 Rings of Love Designer Series Paper. The Ringed with Nature is bundled with the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder- see how it works in the video below.

I used the beautiful wildflower pattern on the gatefold of the card below along with the other side of it on the book binding. I pulled in Mint Macaron on the tag from the Hydrangea Dies.

I made this one in the video using the acorn pattern with the fall colors along with a pattern from the Gingham Cottage DSP.

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-1/8, 3-3/8″ and 8-7/8″ on the 11″ side, DSP on left binding: 1″ x 4″ and DSP on Gatefold: (2) 1-7/8″ x 4″, Basic White inside: 4″ square

Oh, here is a pretty one for you today…

Did you miss this gorgeous die set in the Annual Catalog? It’s called Designer Tags Dies. It is so pretty…take a look at them. So many ways to use them! Notice that little hole that can be die cut into the top middle tag-or any other die cut you want a hole in!
