Stampin’ Up Snow Front

September 9, 2019

I pretended I was a watercolor artist over the weekend…
this is what the Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set helped me do:

I can’t wait to play around some more with this set…
look at all the great “clear” photopolymer stamps to design your own masterpiece:

At first, I was bummed I did not use my Stamparatus to stamp the  Buffalo Check Background and it was not perfect but then thought nothing is more comfy than a well worn flannel shirt!

I easily cut down my sentiment stitched rectangle by cutting it out with the die and then placing the die right where I wanted it to be sized. You can customize the die cut to any size you want by sliding the die over the stitches that just sink down into the die cut. I use a post it to hold it in place when I die cut to be safe:) Think of all the possible sizes you can make!!

Mountains: Crumb Cake
Cabin and Deer: Soft Suede
Pond: Balmy Blue
Trees: Garden Green

Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Bundle

August 28, 2019

I enjoyed playing with the NEW Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Bundle
with the Apple Builder Punch when I made this Get Well Card.
I am always looking for Get Well sentiments in a stamp set, and this one has one! Yea!


Here are a few tips on how to make it:

It is quite a simple card but the texture on it makes it look extra special to the recipient.
Here are the three embossing folders I used on the card.

A simple slice of apple finishes off the inside.

I love that the bundle includes the Apple Builder Punch that punches out an apple or a pumpkin:)

Another Stampin’ Up Band Together with Bloom and Grow Cut Front Panel Card

August 16, 2019

I used up some scraps leftover from my experimenting with the Cut Front Panel Technique card.
You can see it HERE.

I started with this design but made my split straight across the card.
And since I had a few different panels from experimenting I made another one with a black card base.

I like how the additional black card base really finishes the card, what do you think?

If you didn’t catch the video on Wednesday, take a look now HERE.

Hope your weekend involves a little bit of crafting!

Stampin’ Up Band Together with Bloom and Grow Cut Front Panel Video Tutorial

August 14, 2019

 

Here is a simple way to put a WOW on your card front. Simply cut out a section of the front panel on the card.
I used the large bloom from the Band Together stamp set along with the pretty sentiment from the Bloom and Grow stamp set.
The Birch Background stamp is a great way to jazz up the background in a subtle way.

How did I do it?

On the card below, I placed the cut panel flat on the front. It gives a different look than just adding a sentiment banner across the front.

On the next card below, I placed fun foam under the cut panels on the front. A great look, don’t you think?

I stamped the bloom on the inside with the fantastic font in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.

Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends

August 12, 2019

I keep saying the name of this stamp set…and I get it, but then, I don’t know…
it’s kinda hard to say to get the pun!
But one thing I do know, the walruses are just so darn cute!

I did mask off the “hi” to make it flow with the “It’s your Birthday!”

 

Since I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the cuties, I cut out the inside one  and adhered it to  the inside since it would bleed onto the back of the card base if I had colored on the card base.
