Stampin’ Up Bloom by Bloom Triple Panel Stand Up Card Video Tutorial

March 13, 2019

Stampin’ Up’s Bloom by Bloom…BIG and BOLD says it all!

I wanted to show off the BOLD images along with the
BIG splash of colors in the  Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper
so I made a Triple Panel Stand Up card.

Here is a video showing you how to make one:

I love the sentiment in the All Adorned Stamp Set available as a free gift with a Sale-a-bration purchase until March 31, 2019.

There are even three little punches called BITTY BLOOMS that come bundled with the Stampin’ Up Bloom by Bloom stamp set.
Three of them cut out images in the Designer Series Paper. See the second one from the right?
The oval makes little petals that go around the circle which becomes the middle of the flower so you can make your own little cardstock posies!

Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings- So Simple!

March 8, 2019

Happy Friday, friends! Hoping you all have a great weekend ahead…

I have had the Stampin’ Up Vertical Greetings forever…
and just inked it up! Maybe I was waiting for the Stamparatus?
Let me tell you,  it made stamping the topiaries in a straight line so easy with the Hinge Stamping Technique!

I just lined up the topiary on the horizontal and hinge stamped three of them and then flipped my card upright.
Actually, I could have done it vertically (as the stamp name says, lol)  and just pulled the acrylic plate from the top, too!
I also had the sentiment lined up on another plate so it was straight when it stamped on the panel:)

You can choose from three different potted plants and 6 versatile sentiments in the set…so fun!

Stampin’ Up Best Catch with High Tide

February 25, 2019

Time for a masculine card, don’t you think?
So, I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Best Catch Bundle.

I used the water, sand, and sea grass images from the High Tide stamp set to create a scene for the fly fisherman. I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the basket, fisherman, and the fish.

It’s hard to distinguish the card base color in the photo but it is Blackberry Bliss.
It looks great with the Soft Suede Basket Weave embossed panel.

I used the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set to finish off the inside along with the fishing lure.

Stampin’ Up Tea Together with Tea Time Framelits

February 15, 2019


Time to relax with some tea after an emotional day.  I am at my bestie’s house in my hometown, what a comforting place to be after my grandfather’s funeral today. And what a celebration of his life it was…complete with a 21 gun salute outside to honor his service in WW II.
The sermon fit perfectly- “The Measure of a Man”. The minister’s points reflected how the measurement of a man is seen in those he touched.

So, as I sit in refection, waiting for the teapot to whistle
(yes, she always uses a teapot with a whistler while I do my boring hot water machine) …
I thought I would show you a card I made using the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set with the Sale-a-Bration Tea Time Framelits.

Oh, how I love that Lace Embossing Folder. I actually used the debossed side of the folder.
I love that both sides are equally stunning!

You can get the Tea Time Framelits FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.
