Beauty Abounds

Hi!  Today I have a card featuring the Beauty Abounds stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  This set is so pretty!

Friendship, Beauty Abounds, Butterflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2019Occasions

I stamped the flourish in StaZOn Jet Black ink along the right hand side as well as along the bottom.  The flowers were colored with Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo while the leaves were colored with Soft Seafoam and Pear Pizzazz.   The butterflies are colored in Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.  This is layered on a 2″ Circle of Pear Pizzazz.   A butterfly element from the Sale-A-Bration catalog  is colored on the edges with a Crumb Cake marker and attached using a glue dot.  These wooden elements are a FREE choice during Sale-A-Bration where a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE product!

The base for the card is Soft Sea Foam and measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ – scored at 5 1/2″.  The mat is Pear Pizzazz and measures 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The Whisper White panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

Here is a video from my Wednesday Wow Facebook Live:

There are a set of coordinating dies that when purchased with the stamp set as a bundle, saves you 10%!  A great bundle for any crafter!

Team Stamp It – Valentine Hop

Hi! Today I am excited to be participating in the Team Stamp It Valentine’s Blog Hop!

I just love this little treat holder and think it is perfect for anyone!

Valentines, Treat Holder, Envelope Punch Board, Hedgehugs, Stampin' Up!, SU! Stampithop

He is carrying 5 Hershey Nuggets inside his pouch.  The original idea for a single nugget was created by Dawn Griffith and this 5 nugget version was designed by Deseree Krumm.

It is quick and easy to make using the Envelope Punch Board.

Cut your All My Love Designer Series Paper at 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.

Line up one side at the 2″ mark on the punch board, punch and score.  Rotate the paper counterclockwise, and line up the score line with the little notch on the punch board to the left of the opening.  Punch and score.  Repeat the rotation and score for the remaining sides -always aligning the score line to the notch.

Here is my video – it is the second project – showing how to make this using the punch board.

Side note – if you liked the first project, you’ll  find details on it here.

The image is stamped from the Hedgehugs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment is from the exclusive stamp set in the January Paper Pumpkin and is stamped in Real Red ink.  A little heart is placed over the flower and was punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch from Real Red Cardstock.

Floral Romance

Hi! Today I have a card I shared this past week on my Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live!  I had seen this fold on a card by Rose Maroney Ward and absolutely LOVED it!

Birthday, Floral Romance, 2019Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

So pretty! The Designer Series Paper is from the Floral Romance pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The die cuts and sentiment are from the Well Said Bundle also found in the Occasions Catalog.  The purchase of this bundle automatically qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration product through March 31, 2019.

I used the awesome Adhesive Sheets – why did I not discover these sooner? – on the back of the die cuts to make it easy to attach to my card.

Here is a PDF with the measurements:  Floral Romance Flap Card

Here is the video for the card:

I have a few more versions of this flap fold which I’ll share soon.

Animal Love

Hi! As promised, I am back today with a cute Treat Holder featuring the Animal Outing Suite in the Annual Catalog.

Valentine, Animal Outing, Treat Holder. Stampin' Up!, SU!

Is this little file folder not the cutest?  I saw this idea a few years ago by Becky Roberts but hadn’t yet tried it.  So happy I remembered it!  These are very easy to make and can be done quickly.

The File Folder is 3″ x 5″, scored at 2 1/4″ and 2 1/2″ on the 5″ side.   A piece of Designer Series Paper 2 1/4″ x 3″ is also needed.  To see how to turn it into a folder, watch this video – it is the second project shared:

The animals are from the Animal Outing Stamp set and are colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits.  Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral light and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.    You can order the stamps and dies as a bundle and save 10%!

No Adhesive Needed!

Hi!  A little spring cheer for you today with this No Adhesive Needed treat holder!

Hershey Kisses, Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala, Occasions 2019, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I demonstrated how to make this cute box in last night’s Wednesday with Teresa Facebook Live.  It is the second project in this video:

The size of the Designer Series Paper is 4 1/2″ x 5″.

Score on the 4 1/2″ side at 1″ and 3 1/2″.

Score on the 5″ side at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″.

Then in the second and forth square on the top and bottom, score diagonally.

Here is the template with the score lines showing:

It is pretty easy to make.

The Butterfly is colored using sponge daubers and Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  (Ok, so I did use Glue Dots to adhere the butterfly to the ribbon)…  But no adhesive was used to make the box itself or to keep it closed!

The ribbon is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE when you place a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order in my on-line store.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Snow is Glistening

Hi!  We had our first snowfall of the season the other day (had to shovel as well) so why not share a card or two made from the Snow Is Glistening set.  The Snowflake Showcase featuring these products ends on Nov 30 – so order today!

Snow is Glistening, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!For this card, I sponged the background using Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather inks.  The Snowflakes are die cut from Whisper White card stock and adhered with adhesive.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy on a scrap of Whisper White  and the ends punched with the Triple Banner Bunch.

I didn’t have any Night of Navy ribbon, so I colored the Whisper White with Silver trim using the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends – so quick and easy to do!   The final touch is a Snowflake Trinket.

Here is another version of the card – but this time I used the Inset Embossing Technique after adhered the snowflakes:

Snow is Glistening, Inset Embossing, Winter, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A little hard to see the difference – here’s a closer view:

By running the card stock with the snowflakes attached through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder, it looks like the snowflakes are now part of the paper – not just on top of it.

You can see how I did this in this video:

Pretty cool, don’t you think?

Card stock dimensions for both cards:

  • Whisper White Thick Base: 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Night of Navy Mat – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
  • Whisper White Image Panel – 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White Sentiment – 3 3/4″ x 1″

Anyway – don’t delay in getting your Snowflake Showcase products – (the Velvet Paper in this flyer is already sold out – but all the other goodies are still available! )

Shop here for your’s!

Hello, Firendship, Happiness Surrounds, Snowflake Showcase, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Love how this card turned out!  It is so pretty!  I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set and coordinating dies to create this card.   My color palette is Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves.

Here is the video showing this card:

Here are the products available in the Snowflake Showcase.  I’ll be playing with the Snow is Glistening set on next week’s Tuesday with Teresa.

Shop here to help me reach my goal!   Big goal – but you will love these stamps and dies and the Happiness Surrounds can be used year round!

A Cart of Pumpkins

Hi!  What did you think of yesterday’s Thanksgiving Theme Blog Hop?  I hope you had fun checking out all the great projects!   Today I am continuing on with fall cards – this one featuring the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Fall, Pumpkins, Pleasant Pheasants, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2018HolidayCatalog

I actually demonstrated how to make this card on Tuesday’s Facebook Live – Tuesday with Teresa.  Here’s the video – it is the second card.

The measurements for each of the pieces:

Base: Thick Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half.

Early Espresso: 5 5/16 x 4 1/16″

Designer Series Paper: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″

Early Espresso:  3 3/16″ x 4 3/16″

Whisper White: 3″ x 4″

The image was colored using ink pads and a blender pen.  The background was done using the Saran Wrap technique.  (Hard to see in the picture – better view in the video).

On the original card, I also distressed the edges of the stamped panel with my fingernail – but forgot to do that in the video.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!  Have a wonderful day!
