Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle with Lasting Elegance Dies

February 21, 2020

I love gray and white together! I used the Lasting Elegance Dies along with the So Sentimental Bundle to create this simple elegant card. My intention was to make a wedding card for my stash but ended up with a friendship card:) I love that the Lasting Elegance Dies has that versatility.

I used a corner die on the inside which adds such a lovely touch.

The Last a Lifetime Stamp Set that is bundled with the Lasting Elegance Dies is just beautiful. Take a look:

But as you can see, the dies work well with any stamp set like I used on this card:)

Stampin’ Up! Under my Umbrella with Pleased as Punch DSP Sale-a-bration Coordination coming on Feb. 4th!

February 3, 2020

Oh my, the Stampin’ Up! Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper available tomorrow- February 4th -with Sale-a-bration Coordination is so cool!

I used the umbrella patterned paper on this card with the Under my Umbrella Bundle. There are 12 pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the Pleased as Punch DSP- 3 coordinate with the Umbrella Builder Punch, 3 with the Heart Punch Pack, 3 with the Tulip Builder Punch, and 3 with the Sale-a-bration offering Small Bloom Punch. And, of course, each piece has a great pattern on the back, too!

The Under My Umbrella Bundle includes the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and the Umbrella Builder Punch. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

I paper-pieced my galoshes on the inside of the card with a pattern on the back of the Small Blooms pattern in the Pleased as Punch DSP. Just stamp the image of the galoshes on the Whisper White card base and then stamp the image on a scrap of the DSP. Fussy cut the galoshes along the stamped lines on the image and pop it on the image you stamped on the card base. I love how it is so easy because if you “cut outside or inside” the lines, it all works out when it is placed on the stamped image:)

Stampin’ Up Nature’s Beauty with Rooted in Nature

October 4, 2019

I am on a nature kick lately…
playing with neutrals and some of the beautiful animal images Stampin’ Up offers us.

I was inspired by Australian Demo Kylie Bertucci. Here is her card:

I stamped the Crumb Cake front panel with the Stampin’ Up Rooted in Nature stamp set. The log and the leaves were stamped in Soft Suede and the little branches of leaves were stamped with Early Espresso to coordinate with the card base and sentiment. I was going to put a layer around my focal image of the animals but then thought…dang, I can use my Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out an opening and get to see the outside decorative stitching left on the panel and then inlay the deer image with dimensionals leaving a dark border around it made from the existing card base! Now, I have another stamped die cut rectangle to make something with…you know I will…sooner or later…let’s hope it is sooner;)

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:)
