Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Bundle

August 26, 2020

If you have not taken a close look at the Love of Leaves Bundle in the Mini Catalog…
now is the time!

After I made my video, I realized I could cut out the step of stamping the Cajun Craze leaf separately by just stamping it on the front panel first, cutting it out with the stitched die, and then using the stitched lines die on the right side of the panel. Then, I just had to pop back in the Cajun Craze leaf! Why didn’t I do that in the first place?!?! Oh well, I bet you were thinking that as I was doing it the other way…lol.

All the leaf dies have stitching detail on them…so cool!
And that detailed stitched lines die- really neat!

You can use the stitched die insert to put texture onto stamped images.

And…oh, how pretty is that Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper…
all occasion patterns with wonderful fall colors among them!


Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Whisper White on inside and outside: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and one for stamping leaves and sentiment
Cajun Craze; 2″ square
Plaid Tidings DSP: 1″ x 5-1/4″

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Bundle

August 24, 2020

Here is my first card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Bundle…

I die cut the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Dies and used one of the snowdrift dies from the Home Together Dies to cut across the middle of the Stitched Circle. I colored the trees with my Stampin’ Up! Old Olive and Soft Suede Blends. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.
The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper is just fantastic! 


Take a look at the Coming Home Stamp Set with that VW Bug… 


and the Home Together Dies.


I think I may color my trees one more time to darken the Old Olive to match the DSP:)

Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle Video Tutorial

August 12, 2020

I was inspired by the card in the Annual Catalog with sponged clouds. I made a mask with the cloud edge die and sponged some cute clouds after die cutting the HAPPY out of the white panel. Here is a video of how easy it was to make this card:

Poppy Parade Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Balmy Blue: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White: 3-3/4″ x 5″ outside, 4″ x 5-1/4″ inside

I just love that HAPPY die! It is so fun to play with!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Dies with Stitched Stars Dies

August 7, 2020

I tend to let things sit on my desk for a bit…maybe it’s just laziness…lol… but a lot of times, it sparks inspiration for another card idea!

I now have an anniversary card for my hip son and daughter-in-law! I used the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Glimmer Paper that I used on my card on Monday. I  started with a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I die cut some Stitched Stars from the upper portion of the Rainbow Glimmer panel and die cut the Happy word  using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Dies on the bottom portion of the panel. I then popped up some Stitched Stars I cut from another panel that I had with the other colors that gave a contrast to the Happy background panel. A few retired Glitter Enamel Dots finished off the clean and simple card that my daughter-in-law will love!  Of course, the Well Written stamp set is an all occasion stamp set that comes in handy all the time!

Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle

August 3, 2020

I finally cut into my gorgeous Stampin’ Up ! Rainbow Glimmer Paper!

You can use larger pieces of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper for a dramatic ombre effect or use smaller pieces of a specific color—it’s like having a multipack of colors on two sheets. I used the Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle to make this fun, easy card. 

 I cut my Rainbow Glimmer Paper to 3″ x 4″ so I got 9 panels out of one sheet! I placed the panel behind the two HAPPY words that I die cut out of the card base with the Happy Dies. From another project, I had the lower portion of the Glimmer that has the yellow, orange and green hues so I die cut the balloons and added simple white strings and a bow. The die cut that holds the sentiment comes from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies.
