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.

Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business

June 22, 2020

Here is the Father’s Day card I made for my hubby yesterday…
although he mostly enjoys wine not whiskey…lol.

I used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper. Each sheet has photographic images of wood, tile, stone, and other textural cloth elements. I LOVE the top portion on this card- isn’t is just awesome? I colored my whiskey with a So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker then colored over it with Light Soft Suede Blend to get a good whiskey color. My ice cubes are just colored with the So Saffron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I added a little bling with some Gilded Gems that really look nice in person.
I love the sentiments in the set. All of them are so cool!

Now…I have to  get to work to make him a birthday card…it’s only three days away!!!

Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle Easel Card Video Tutorial

May 6, 2020

Yeah, I kinda like the Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Bundle…this time it became an easel card.

I used Seaside Spray for my blue on this card and a bright green Granny Apple Green. I think it really worked with the Night of Navy Frame and the So Saffron sun. Believe me when I tell you I sometimes try a lot of different colors to see which ends up to my liking. Frequently,  I change it days later. I first had a Daffodil Delight sun but liked So Saffron better…no rhyme or reason…just liked it better. Do you ever do that?

 Well, anyhoo, here’s a video showing how easy it is to make an easel card and some little tips using the Stitched Shapes and Rectangle Dies. Please forgive the shadows at the end of the video when my light went out…thankfully, the bulb was just loose in the socket. I should have just reached up to check it! But then it would have been hot… and I might have burnt myself…and my hands would have been compromised…and maybe I could not stamp for awhile…and we would not want that to happen!


So, what about the boat? Are you Team Crumb Cake or Team Real Red?

Card Base: 4-1/8″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Night of Navy Frame: Largest Stitched Rectangle 3-3/4″ x 5-1/8″
Stitched Rectangle to die cut the grass and sky is 2-5/8″ x 4″
Granny Apple Green grass: 3″ wide  x  2-1/2″ tall
Seaside Spray sky: 3″ wide  x 4-1/4″ tall
