Sneak Peek of Stampin’ UP! Taco Fiesta

January 2, 2023

Oh, I love me some guacamole…so the Stampin’ UP! Taco Fiesta drew me in!

I do wish there were die cuts…but I managed to make a card without having to fussy cut…hahaha. I used the Stylish Shapes for all the die cuts. I stamped avocado in black and colored seed with gray blend:) 

You don’t have to add the face on the guac dish if you don’t want it to be a cute-sy image. You can just stamp the dish. But…there are a few cute faces to decorate the image sin the set.

Sneak Peek Stampin’ UP! Silly Goose

December 19, 2022

I have a sneak peek of the Stampin’ UP! Silly Goose coming out in the Stampin’ UP! January-April 2023 Mini Catalog on January 5, 2023. I used the Stampin’ UP! Alphabest stamp set to create the OOPS! It just seemed like the thing to do!

I used the versatile Sale-a-bration Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper again…it is just perfect! All the spring colors and patterns- a definite win for a $100 purchase Sale-a-bration Freebie- 48 12 x 12 pieces!! Oh gosh, look at that “Goose Bumps” fist bump sentiment! And a “Big Honking Thanks”- love it!!! I just love little punny stamp sets!

Stampin’ UP! January-April 2023 Mini Catalog!

So come back to sign up!!

Stampin’ UP! Party Puffins with 4 x 4 DSP Tip Video Tutorial

November 16, 2022

I have an old paper cutting tip to share with you today! It takes only a 4″ x 4″ piece of DSP to fill the front of your card! The Stampin’ UP! Black & White Designs DSP has some cool patterns that can be flipped and matched up. But you can do this technique with any DSP you want- using one piece of 4″ x 4″ on one card using the front and back or the same pattern or make two cards using different patterns like these cards.

That puffin is just too cute! Check out my video showing how I put these together…

So many fun ways to put the diagonal strip on the middle of the card. Take a look at these cards where I mixed and matched the card bases, diagonals strips and it appears the DSP.

That cute little “bowtie” is a sneak peek of a kite tie from the upcoming Stampin’ UP! Playing in the Rain Dies that I showcased at the Onstage event in Pittsburgh last week. Doesn’t it look so cute on the puffin?

Here is the inside of the cards…I noticed when I was uploading it that one of the candle flames was missing…oops!

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11, DSP: 4″ x 4″ cut as seen in video, Basic White or black panel for mounting DSP and inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Diagonal strip: 7/8″ x 6-1/2″, Scraps for ovals and banners

Thanks for buzzing by…

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! 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.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
