Stampin’ Up Flourishing Phrases with Hand Lettered Prose Dies

August 3, 2019

My daughter asked me for a card that was like “sending a hug” in the mail.
So…I did exactly what she asked me in the half hour before she wanted to pick it up…

When I made it, I die cut the hugs with the Hand Lettered Prose Dies and laid them on the panel I stamped with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. It was too flat so I thought of little pieces of dimensionals but that would be tedious and not very stable. So I put the die cut letters on some white fun foam I had. I just die cut the hugs out of the fun foam, used Tombow glue to attatch the DSP hugs, and then glued them to the panel:) It looks so good! Now, if Stampin’ Up had sheets of dimensionals we could cut out shapes…that would be awesome!

I forgot to snap a pic of the inside…a simple repeat of the flourish in the lower right corner:)

Stampin’ Up Very Versailles

July 12, 2019

I totally fell in love with this stamp set when I first saw it…Stampin’ Up Very Versailles.

I just started layering the images and voila, it was done. I stamped the small script first in Soft Seafoam then stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron. Then it needed a bold pop of color so I used Soft Suede to stamp the top and bottom scrolls and the medallion. I tried Crumb Cake first but it was just ok, the darker Soft Suede ink and card base ended up being just right! A simple little Stitched Nested Label Die popped up with some twine and gold metallic pearls finished up the card. I stamped some Mint leaves inside on the inside with a Soft Seafoam “Thinking of You.”

Looking at the photo…I think my next card will have some distressed edges on it!

Stampin’ Up Band Together Bundle

June 24, 2019

I went up to my craft room yesterday and thought, “What color have I not used lately?”
I came up with Mango Melody. I paired it with the bright Call Me Clover Green.

I stamped the flowers and leaves with Versamark and heat embossed them with White Emboss Powder. I then sponged over the flowers with Mango Melody ink  and the leaves with Call Me Clover ink. The white embossing resists the ink when it is sponged over creating a pretty gradient of Mango Melody ink and Call Me Clover ink on the flowers and leaves. The flowers and leaves were easily cut out with the Detailed Bands Dies bundled with the Band Together Stamp Set.

Just take a look at all the other fun dies!!!

Using up my leftovers with Stampin’ Up To A Wild Rose

May 24, 2019

It’s been a leftover kind of week…made rigatoni- had leftovers, bought a rotisserie chicken- had leftovers, so why wouldn’t I use up the leftovers on my desk from the Stampin’ Up To a Wild Rose Die Cut Gatefold Card?

You know if I didn’t use them, I would end up sticking them somewhere and then find them later and still not want to throw them away! I had a die cut gate fold card base and a rose left over from my video so I just quickly made another rose to add!

I used the stitched die in the bundle to showcase the big sentiment:

I used the Blessed sentiment on the inside of this card:

Here is the video of the Die Cut Gate Fold Card from just on few days ago on Monday’s post:

Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon Thumping Technique Video Tutorial

May 12, 2019

I was taken with the Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon when I first saw it
but was a bit puzzled how to make it come to life for me.


I was going to sponge some different colors on the leaves but then remembered a card
I did when I first started holding classes…
it was back in 2013 using the Thumping Technique.

So, I did the Thumping Technique using my Stampin’ Write Markers on the Golden Afternoon tree.
See the lovely subtle shades of green that make the tree come to life? I stamped the entire image in Pear Pizzazz ink and then thumped on Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, and Garden Green with my Stampin’ Write markers- NOT the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends.

After I thumped on the leaves, I colored directly on the trunk and branches with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.

I love the little tree image in the stamp set, too. I did put it in the inside bottom right but forgot to take a pic- and the card has been sent out to someone:)

Here is a quick video showing how to do it:
