Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle Joy Fold Video Tutorial

September 16, 2020

Yes, poinsettias can be purple…especially when they are made with Stampin’ Up Highland Heather Velveteen Paper and gorgeous Beaded Pearls!

This Joy Fold Fun Fold is so easy to make and fun to decorate, too! The First Frost Designer Series Paper was a perfect match for the Highland Heather Velveteen Paper. Take a look at this video and see how to use the NEW Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Bundle with the Poinsettia Dies.

I started out making traditional red poinsettias with the Red Velvet Paper in the Mini Catalog. I can’t believe how easy it is to emboss the petals at the same time they are die cut. I made these cards as my hubby was sleeping after his shoulder surgery the last week of August but the purple one came to me as I was prepping for my video on September 1, I could not wait to share it!

Measurements:
Card Base: 8-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Inside back panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″
DSP: 4″ x 2-3/4″
Smaller card on top: 8-1/2″ x 3″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″
Whisper white panels for stamping: (2) 2-3/4″ x 4″
Velvet/Velveteen Paper: 3-1/2″, 3″, and 2-1/2″ squares for the three flowers

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Nativity Bundle

September 14, 2020

I love a Christmas Bundle with Jesus as the main character, can I hear an Amen?
So, the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Nativity was a must get for me:)

I added some texture by embossing the sky and sand with my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine. The sky is embossed with the Tasteful Textiles EF and the sand is embossed with the Subtle EF. That gave me a great canvas to place my nativity scene on. Just so things stood out, I picked colors that stood out against each other. The stable is Early Espresso, the sand is Crumb Cake, the sky is Seaside Spray, and the palm trees are Old Olive- I just colored the trunks with my Dark Soft Suede Blend. I used Very Vanilla to stamp Mary, Joseph, Jesus, and the donkey.

I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the two sentiments together on the Stitched Oval Die. Did you notice how the hooves on this donkey are lighter? I darkened the ones in the first pic- is there any big difference to you?

 The sentiment on the inside is a simple reminder to keep His light in our hearts all year long:)

Stampin’ Up! The Right Triangle Bundle with Festive Corners

September 9, 2020

Oops…all my photos are missing THE on the stamp set! It is called THE Right Triangle Bundle!!!
I may have missed THE but I didn’t miss  out on the fun making these cute Christmas cards:)

The Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper is a classic Christmas red and green –
all the patterns are just perfect! And the Festive Corners stamp set is so cool!

P.S. I do know the difference between a right, isosceles, and equilateral triangle but got all mixed up on camera…lol!
I even know how to inscribe a circle in a triangle…hahaha

I also made one with the Moose Punch that is back in this Mini Catalog!
I used the Banner Year Stamp Set for the ‘be merry” sentiment.

I have to say I had a ball playing with all the triangles…and there are still two other kinds of triangles in the Stitched Triangles Die Set to play with!

Measurements:
Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, Trim 1/8″ off the 4-1/4″ side to make it 4-1/8″ wide
DSP: 4″ x 5-1/4″ die cut with the Largest Stitched Rectangle with the third largest inside it.
Whisper White inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″ and 4″ x 5″ to cut out white stitched rectangle with third largest triangle for front

Stampin’ Up! Posted for You Punch Bundle

September 7, 2020

I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Posted for You Punch Bundle to make a quick and easy card!

Layering is a quick way to make a simple card eye catching. And, that’s exactly what I did on this card – or I think I did:) I stamped the image from the Posted for You Stamp Set and punched it out with the coordinating Posted for You Punch. Then I layered it on a black scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I then layered that on a Pool Party Stitched Rectangle embossed with the NEW Greenery Embossing Folder Pack in the Annual Catalog. Another layered Stitched Rectangle in black and then again in White on a Pear Pizzazz card base!

Now, I am thinking of using it as an actual postage stamp on my next card…

Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder

August 31, 2020

 I knew when I got the NEW 3D Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder, I wanted to emboss foil!

I used a lovely sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Cherish the Season with the  NEW Snowflake Splendor Ribbon and the Adhesive Backed Snowflakes.

I was inspired by a card l received last year from my friend, Emily Turner. I was so taken with it as were so many of my stamping girls!

Emily used Seaside Spray Cardstock, Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper, Silver Foil, and Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon with Seaside Spray Ribbon layered on top of it. She scattered silver Metallic Pearls on it, too! Everything is still current since SU brought back the DSP and ribbon.  But, she did heat emboss the sentiment  from Toile Christmas with Iridescent Ice but you could CASE it with White Embossing Powder:)
