Stampin’ Up! Blossoms in Bloom Bundle Sneak Peek

May 15, 2020

Here is a sneak peek of the NEW Blossoms in Bloom Bundle coming on June 3, 2020. The blue background is the NEW In Color Misty Moonlight. It reminds me of a comfortable faded pair of denim jeans. I LOVE IT! I also used the NEW Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. This is a game changer when it comes to punches! It’s 6 punches in one! Two designs, three widths, any length you want- convenient, versatile and available on June 3rd only from Stampin’ Up! It is also bundled with an awesome stamp set with sentiments that fit in all the punch widths!

I layered the white outline flower die cut over the Daffodil Delight Flower Die cut managing to keep all the tiny middle die cuts intact inside the die except a few I had to add back in. I just put Tombow Multipurpose glue on top of the solid yellow die cut  and adhered the white die cut on top of it. I die cut another outline flower die in Pear PIzzazz and inlaid the leaves that were the scraps into the white die cut. I can tell the Blossoms in Bloom Bundle is going to be fun to watch on Pinterest- so many possibilities- it has a great stamp set in the bundle, too!

Stampin’ Up! My Meadow with Special Celebrations

May 8, 2020

Happy Friday, Friends! Here’s a sweet card to brighten someone’s day!

The Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper is just so pretty, isn’t it…I wish it could stay but it is going away. My wheelbarrow is fussy cut and popped off the Nested Label. I used another great stamp set called Special Celebrations for the sentiment. It is retiring:(


The item # for the Special Celebrations is #151396 since it is now a cling-
mine was not a cling stamp and had another item #.

A little DSP finished off the inside with a coordinating sentiment from Special Celebrations:)

Here’s another card I made…

Have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! By the Dock Tri-panel Sponging Video Tutorial

April 29, 2020

I did some simple sponging and stamping using the Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Stamp Set…

and then it needed a little more something…so I made it a tri-panel focal point.

I loved being able to sponge a soft Seaside Spray ink over my Whisper White and still be able to color over it with Stampin’ Blends.
I used the pine trees from the Mountain Air Stamp Set.
Watch the video for sponging and cutting tips…I did all the measurements for you:)


You can make a tri-panel card with any stamp set. Save the measurements and try one!

Garden Green Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Crumb Cake Panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Soft Suede Panel: 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″
Whisper White Stamped Panel: 3-3/8″ x 4-1/2″. Cut into three 1-1/2″ x 3-3/8″ pieces along the 4-1/2″ side after stamped, sponged, and colored
