Oh, those cute little ladybugs in the Stampin’ UP! Hey Ladybug Punch Bundle…love them! I just punched some sweet little bugs, die cut some flowers with the Pierced Blooms Dies and laid them on the Stitched Greenery Die background- a quick and easy fun card!

What a cute sentiment for the inside…”you can bug me any time”

Stampin’ UP! Flowering Rain Boots and Flowering Tulips Sampler

January 7, 2022

I made my first sampler! I always wanted to make one, and I finally did using the NEW Stampin’ UP! Flowering Rain Boots and Flowering Tulips Bundles. My stamping group made this sampler at a Product Class this week. The sampler fits inside a 9″ x 9″ Shadow Box. I plan to make many more sampler inserts and change them out…I will make sure to share them with you:)

The wood grain pattern DSP comes from the Heart and Home Designer Series Paper. I used the Stampin’ UP! Flowering Tulips Bundle for the upper right corner and the sentiment.

All the other images are from the Stampin’ UP! Flowering Rain Boots Bundle.

The Basic Black square is 9″, the Smoky Slate square is 8-1/2″, and the Designer Series Paper square is 8″. The tulips Stitched Rectangle is 3″ x 4-1/4″, the watering can Stitched Rectangle is 1-3/4″ x 3-3/8″, the rain boots Stitched Rectangle is 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″, and the flower pots/seeds Stitched Rectangle is 3-5/8″ x 1-5/8″. The colored corners of each vignette is the same size stitched rectangle cut on the diagonal. Be careful to cut in the correct direction diagonally so it fits on the upper right corner if you want it to look like this one…if not, you can layer the colored half rectangles on different corners.

Stampin’ UP! Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder with Elegantly Said Stamp Set

January 3, 2021

I got to spend New Year’s eve in Pittsburgh at a wedding with my daughter’s college roommates who all happened to be long time friends even before college. My daughter is beside me in the sequin dress and the others girls are like my daughters, too!

What a wonderful way to ring in the new year!

A super cool guy they have all been friends with since the first day of freshman year married a gorgeous, smart lady. Andy was even a groomsman in my daughter’s wedding. And boy did they look awesome- like movie stars!

May be a black-and-white image of 2 people and people standing

Andy wore the coolest black bow tie with gold elements on the bottom corners- you know a SU demo would love that embellishment!

Here is the card I made for Andrew and Meghan using the NEW Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder coming out on January 4 in the January – June 2022 Mini Catalog and the Elegantly Said stamp set in the Annual Catalog.

Of course there is a story behind it…I first die cut the white and black along with the card base.

Then I embossed just the white piece with the die inside the hybrid embossing folder.

Then I put them altogether and opened the card onto a black ink pad!!!!!

So, essentially my design was prompted by my ink splotches. I decided to cover the bottom splotch with a sentiment from the Stampin’ UP! Elegantly Said stamp set cut out with a Stitched Rectangle Die. The other splotches on the sides got covered with the sweet stitched heart die and flower in the Stampin’ UP! Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder.

The inside has an embossed pink heart adhered to a white panel that you see through the opening when the card is closed. I temporarily adhered the white panel on the inside. Then carefully slipped the die underneath the heart opening on the front. After I said a prayer to Stampin’ Jesus that it would be in place, I ran the white panel through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. And HE answered my prayer! I then embossed and cut a separate pink heart and put it inside the die cut hole in the white inside panel. I could have just adhered the embossed heart to the inside white but the stitching is pretty to see on the white around the heart:)
