Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle Video Tutorial

August 12, 2020

I was inspired by the card in the Annual Catalog with sponged clouds. I made a mask with the cloud edge die and sponged some cute clouds after die cutting the HAPPY out of the white panel. Here is a video of how easy it was to make this card:

Poppy Parade Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side
Balmy Blue: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Whisper White: 3-3/4″ x 5″ outside, 4″ x 5-1/4″ inside

I just love that HAPPY die! It is so fun to play with!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Dies with Stitched Stars Dies

August 7, 2020

I tend to let things sit on my desk for a bit…maybe it’s just laziness…lol… but a lot of times, it sparks inspiration for another card idea!

I now have an anniversary card for my hip son and daughter-in-law! I used the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Glimmer Paper that I used on my card on Monday. I  started with a 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel of Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I die cut some Stitched Stars from the upper portion of the Rainbow Glimmer panel and die cut the Happy word  using the Stampin’ Up! Happy Dies on the bottom portion of the panel. I then popped up some Stitched Stars I cut from another panel that I had with the other colors that gave a contrast to the Happy background panel. A few retired Glitter Enamel Dots finished off the clean and simple card that my daughter-in-law will love!  Of course, the Well Written stamp set is an all occasion stamp set that comes in handy all the time!

Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays Surprise Gatefold Card Video Tutorial

August 5, 2020

I was never really drawn to GNOMES but the Stampin’ Up! Gnome for the Holidays
is just too darn cute!!!

I am now a Gnome lover!

This card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s Surprise Gatefold Technique,
I modified mine a bit to make it even easier!

Check out my video showing how to make this easy card:

NOTE: Be sure to line up your pattern on your Designer Series Paper on each side of the gatefolds.I fixed mine in my photos but you will notice I had the paper upside down and the plaid pattern was not lined up!!! Also, to center the gnome on the right gatefold so it is covered by the left larger square, turn him over onto the larger left rectangle not upside down!

I just love the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint! Fun, fun, fun!

Some cuties on the inside to finish the card:)

Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle

August 3, 2020

I finally cut into my gorgeous Stampin’ Up ! Rainbow Glimmer Paper!

You can use larger pieces of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper for a dramatic ombre effect or use smaller pieces of a specific color—it’s like having a multipack of colors on two sheets. I used the Glimmer Paper with the Stampin’ Up! So Much Happy Bundle to make this fun, easy card. 

 I cut my Rainbow Glimmer Paper to 3″ x 4″ so I got 9 panels out of one sheet! I placed the panel behind the two HAPPY words that I die cut out of the card base with the Happy Dies. From another project, I had the lower portion of the Glimmer that has the yellow, orange and green hues so I die cut the balloons and added simple white strings and a bow. The die cut that holds the sentiment comes from the Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Labels Dies.

July 22, 2020

I have a fun technique to share with you that has been around for decades…
the Bubble Wrap Technique.

Here is a video showing how fun and easy this technique is…
to do the inside, I just masked off an oval and did the technique the same as the front.

It is so cool how each circle is consistently round with that crinkly appearance:)
