SU Birthday Card

SU Hello Cupcake – a Sale-a-Bration Gift!

January 7, 2018

Hello, Cupcake!
I made this sweet little card in my stamping marathon this weekend
getting prepped for my January Sale-a-Bration classes.
So excited to see my stampers!!

I did not realize there was a stamp for the “cake” part- I used So Saffron to make a yellow cupcake. Of course, I am already getting a ton of mileage of my Rectangles Stitched Dies- MUST HAVE to put in your tool box!!! I sprinkled a little fun on the inside, too!


It’s Sale-a-Bration time so you get a gift with your order. WooHoo! 

Here are the items in the line-up:

SU Geared Up Garage Bundle Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

December 14, 2018

Technology…phone uploading and computer finally working correctly…

It’s done…my Wednesday Video on Friday!

I played around with the NEW Stampin’ UP Geared Up Garage Bundle coming out on January 3, 2019. Such a cool stamp set with coordinating framelits! So cool that the gentleman sitting next to me on the plane commented how cool the ’69 Mustang was and how it brought back memories for him while I was putting it together!


I used the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Let me tell you- it is AWESOME! One of the best DSPs I have seen!

You can easily adhere a gift card on the front opening part on the card, too.


I colored my toolbox with my Stampin’ Blends. I left the card “generic” until I add the occasion to it.

Basic Black Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, 3″ x 2″ for car, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for gears (or use scraps)

SU 25 Again Fun Fold Video Tutorial

November 7, 2018

I am so excited to be leaving for the Orlando Stampin’ Up Onstage Convention today!
I made this video of a neat fun fold the day before I left…
so maybe it is a little crazy because I was all hyped up…lol.




I just love that gold candle embellishment!

You can easily make it a gift card holder by adhering the circle to the gift card and
then adhering the gift card to the card base.

I added some little gold dots to the candles using a Gold Sharpie Marker to add a little gold to the inside
along with the sequins I am not so sure belong…hahaha

Use the Layering Circle Framelits for the Circles as follows:
25 Again Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Cake Circle: use 1-3/8″ for the white circle, use 1-5/8″ for the black circle, use for 1-3/4″ the the gold scallop
You’re How Old? Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Card Opening at top: use the 2-7/8″ circle to cut the DSP and then the 2-5/8″ circle to cut inside the DSP on the Black Cardstock itself

Card Base: Basic Black 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-1/2 and 6-3/4″ on the 11″ side.
Trim off 1/4″ off of the right side while still in the trimmer.
(3) 2-1/2″ Basic Black squares for circles
Broadway Bound DSP: Top 2-1/4″ x 4″, Bottom 4″ x 3-3/4″
Gold Foil: (3) 2-1/2″ squares for scallops
Whisper White inside: 4″ x 3-3/4″, (3) 2″ squares for circles

SU Botanical Bliss Bundle

November 5, 2018

Oh, how I love Blackberry Bliss although I did call it Blackberry Mess last week at class
since it seems to travel all over the place when we are using it…LOL.

I used the die with the lovely floral design.

I simply used the one die above to cut out the flower and
then another die below to cut out the bottom around the leaves to get a free standing flower.

I also die cut Mossy Meadow leaves and adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss leaves to give the contrast.

The Layered Leaves embossed panel sets the stage for the card. To jazz up the focal image,
I embossed the sentiment in gold, added  a vellum stitched oval, a scalloped gold foil border, and scattered some gold sequins.
The Wood Textures DSP with the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon gives the card a shabby chic feel,
don’t you think?

Simple stamped images finish off the inside of the card:)
