Stampin’ Up! August 2020 Paper Pumpkin “World’s Greatest”

August 28, 2020

I used my Stampin’ Up! August 2020 Paper Pumpkin “World’s Greatest” to make this card for a friend of mine.

I loved the argyle patterned paper in the kit. The pre-cut trophy and the photopolymer image of the medal are awesome.  I love that the colors were unisex so the materials in the kit are versatile. Using the Stitched Rectangles Dies adds a finished polished look.

Now, we are looking at September’s Kit!!! WooHoo!

Stampin’ Up! Love of Leaves Bundle

August 26, 2020

If you have not taken a close look at the Love of Leaves Bundle in the Mini Catalog…
now is the time!

After I made my video, I realized I could cut out the step of stamping the Cajun Craze leaf separately by just stamping it on the front panel first, cutting it out with the stitched die, and then using the stitched lines die on the right side of the panel. Then, I just had to pop back in the Cajun Craze leaf! Why didn’t I do that in the first place?!?! Oh well, I bet you were thinking that as I was doing it the other way…lol.

All the leaf dies have stitching detail on them…so cool!
And that detailed stitched lines die- really neat!

You can use the stitched die insert to put texture onto stamped images.

And…oh, how pretty is that Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper…
all occasion patterns with wonderful fall colors among them!


Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Whisper White on inside and outside: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and one for stamping leaves and sentiment
Cajun Craze; 2″ square
Plaid Tidings DSP: 1″ x 5-1/4″

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Bundle

August 24, 2020

Here is my first card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Bundle…

I die cut the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Dies and used one of the snowdrift dies from the Home Together Dies to cut across the middle of the Stitched Circle. I colored the trees with my Stampin’ Up! Old Olive and Soft Suede Blends. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.
The Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper is just fantastic! 


Take a look at the Coming Home Stamp Set with that VW Bug… 


and the Home Together Dies.


I think I may color my trees one more time to darken the Old Olive to match the DSP:)

Stampin’ Up! Gift Wrapped

August 20, 2020

How easy was this Christmas card to make?

Super, super easy with the Gift Wrapped Punch Bundle! Classic red and green Christmas colors found in the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series create a cute wrapped gift with a bow made with the Gift Bow Builder Punch.

I created some texture by running my 3/4″ ribbon strips and the bow through my NEW Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. My little tag was die cut with the Peek-a-Hoot Dies.

I decorated the inside with two of the sentiments and a bow stamped in the colors of the DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Sounds of the Season and Playful Alphabet Dies with Brightly Gleaming DSP

August 17, 2020

When I saw those bells in the NEW Stampin’ UP! Mini Holiday Catalog…I was ecstatic!
The Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season Bundle was the first thing on my pre-order list!!

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sounds of the Season Dies along with my Playful Alphabet Dies to create the Copper Foil JINGLE to coordinate with my returning favorite Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. Those little holly leaves can stay in the dies or come out which is super versatile. I like them in on this card:) Tip: If you know me, I am sure you know that I cut a Copper Foil sheet to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and cut out my bells and jingle word leaving a border on the rectangle. So, now I have a panel to add to a card front to create a lovely foil border when I cover up the negative die cuts. Ladies and Gents, we must use our foil wisely!

I had thought of using the Copper Panel around the DSP but I liked the pop of the Very Vanilla a bit better:)
