The Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am sharing cards I created with the Itty Bitty Christmas bundle and a couple from Stampin’ Up! It is amazing how different each card turned out … I wanted to show the different elements of the stamp set and dies to demonstrate how versatile this bundle is.

The first card is bursting with holiday flair and is decked out in gold.  The floral pattern really highlights the greeting and ties in the gold throughout the card so nicely. The Shades Spruce and Cherry Cobbler look so regal together and are compliments of the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer paper.

Here is another sample that highlights the floral dies cuts … I love these, they actually look more like a metal embellishment than a die cut piece of cardstock!! They also used the die cut image to create a fun background on this card.

My second card is so different from the first in that we have created our own “Shimmer” paper by spritzing the beautiful Seaside Spray from our 2019 – 2021 In Color collection.  For a little more sparkle, the snowflakes are cut from the Sparkle Shimmer Paper! But wait … there is one more layer of sparkle when I added the Rhinestones to the snowflakes.

My last card of the three is just simply elegant and done with White and Silver … and yes, graced with a touch of glitter. Instead of die cutting the image and adhering it to the base as I did in the first card, I actually cut it out of the front and used it to impose a second layer to the card… stunning.

I have another samples the highlights the foliage die …

If you didn’t know these cards were from the same stamp set/dies … you might not know that they were!  Stop back tomorrow and I will show you how these holiday cards will be turned into everyday cards!!

Thanks for checking in with me today … meet you back here tomorrow.

Have some fun today!

Everything Festive …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you a novice crafters … or do you just love making simple yet fabulous cards? Not all cards need to have 5 layers of cardstock and embellishments, sometimes we just like quick -n- cute.  Today we’re going to start with the Everything Festive stamp set …

The Everything Festive Stamp Set will make sure you’re not at a loss for words. Celebrate Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day all with one stamp set! Let’s start with the PS I Love You Card … it’s created with the Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White Cardstocks and the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes … they are the beginning to quick-n-easy cards.

First, we’ll sponge some color on the note card, then add few strips of the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper; notice the basic layout of these cards are the same … just change up your colors!

When you have the Everyday Season punch pack you can add sweet little punched images quickly … on our PS I Love You card it’s the simple hearts in Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo. We used the leaves on the From our Home to Yours punched from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and/or friends.

Thank you for dropping by today, I’ll see you tomorrow.

You Don’t Have to Wait until Black Friday to Enjoy Savings …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is the last day to enjoy savings on the basics like cardstock and ink pads! Plus there are 8 bundles that are on sale too … yesterday I shared many, many samples and have listed them below as well.

It’s a great time to stock up on the items you always need.  Plus, with orders of $50 or more … you will get your order shipped directly to your home, your Virtual Reward points for each $50 and a little “Thank You” gift in the mail from me!

Let’s start out with the beautiful “To a Wild Rose” Bundle …

I will be listing the details so you can see exactly what you would get (and the item number) along with samples to spark your creativity and get you stamping!

There are so many things you can do with this bundle, I have several examples to show you. Some are from my Stamping Clubs! Here you’ll see soft beautiful floral cards …

I love to use my Stampin’ Blends with this beautiful rose … I’ve used them here on the purple card (Highland Heather) so stunning!

This little beauty in Blushing Bride and Going Gray was simply sponging a hint of pink into the petals of our rose, and then using the Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.  The background was stamping our rose in Going Gray directly onto the Going Gray cardstock … a simple technique of creating your own backgrounds.

The yellow (Daffodil Delight) is actually using the two step process, stamping off for the first solid image and then inking up the detailed (line) image and stamping over it.

Here I have stamped our pretty rose (the two step stamping technique) onto the New In Colors … they are also on SALE! Both Cardstock and Ink Pads (excluding the Purple Posie ink) are on sale too.

Our next bundle in the card parade is the “Path of Petals Bundle”. This little beauty has beautiful, uplifting sentiments and stunning dies to highlight your sentiments and create a focal point on your card.

The next bundle “Parcels & Petals” where you can really stretch out your dollars as you create beautiful handmade gift boxes and then a stunning card to go with it! Just check out the samples below …

Once you create your box with your new dies … you can stamp these beautiful flowers and adorn them to your gift. So pretty …

This pretty card is simple to create by just stamping your Pear Pizzaz ink onto Pear Pizzaz cardstock (the technique we used earlier on our “To a Wild Rose” bundle.  Then with the dies, you can add some delicate embellishments behind your banner to really draw the eye to your greeting.

Next I would like to share the Memorable Mosaic Bundle …

You may also want to add the amazing Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) It’s mosaic tile designs and floral imagery with shiny, transparent accents is the “cherry on top” to this bundle! The background on this card … and the bird are from this designer paper.

Here are more samples using the Memorable Mosaic Bundle …

 

The next bundle is one of my favorites, and one of the “Top Sellers” at Stampin’ Up! This bundle is so versatile, the dies alone are worth the price … I use them over and over on so many projects and coordinate them with any other stamp set!

The first card I’m going to share with you is one of our “Make & Takes” from the Stampin’ Up! OnStage demonstrator event…

Here I created a sweet -n- simple card using the stamp set and dies …

This next card I used the “Spotlighting Technique” to highlight part of the image. It too is a simple technique and creates eye catching focal point on your card …

Again I have used the “Spotlighting Technique” but instead of stamping, I did it using the designer series paper. Talk about an easy but beautiful card …

On this card, it fussy cut out the little bird on the branch from the Bird Ballad Designer paper (149592) and teamed it up with the Laser Cut Cards & Tin (149595). *Perfect Christmas Gift for your Crafting Friends.

I’ve got to show you one more (told you this was one of my favorites!) Again, I used the designer paper, however you could use the stamp set too, these are just colored already.  Then I used the die to cut out from the background paper (also included in the Bird Ballad Designer Paper) and then put my greeting behind it.  I love that it created another layer of depth to the card … almost a 3D look!

 

Lets have some fun now! The Dino Days Bundle is great for kids … girls love them just as much as boys, and this bundle is so much fun to play with!

These guys are soooo cute, you will most definitely want to team this bundle up with the Dinoroar designer paper: 149589. This is a Stampin’ Up! card …

Here is one of the first cards I made with this bundle. This is representing a “surprise” as he pops out of the egg …

These two cards are actually “Welcome Baby” card … It’s a Girl or It’s a Boy! How cute and unique are these, perfect for the dino lovers in your tribe.

A Dino Birthday card is next … sweet -n- simple!

 

Here is one of my favorites that I made with this bundle. I used a piece of vellum so you could still see the background yet allows your dinosaur to be the main attaction on your card… Love, love, love this one.

The next bundle, Bloom & Grow has beautiful floral designs and sentiments for all occasions …

Did you notice that the card on the top right is using the die from the “Bird Ballad” bundle? I love how Stampin’ Up! designs to coordinate not just one bundle … but many bundles!

On our second card they used the dies to cut out a elegant mat to highlight the greeting …

Last but not least is the beautiful “Band Together Bundle”. The stunning dies in this bundle really highlight the sentiments and bring the flower to life!

Here you will see several ways to change up your flower to give your cards a totally different look. Simply stamp is as a background or stamp it on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out to make a pretty bouquet behind your greeting … amazing!!

I hope you enjoyed this parade of cards as much as I did pulling it all together and revisiting some of my favorites. It also added 2 more to my Wish List!! Let’s get them ordered before Midnight tomorrow so we can get our 15% Discount. I love a savings too!

Simply Sunday: Seasons Greetings Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card featuring the So Many Stars stamp set from the So Many Stars bundle. This simple card layout works perfectly to fit any occasion such as a birthday or welcoming a sweet new baby … so many possibilities.

One of the easiest ways to create a card is to bring out your designer paper and use it for the background. Today’s card features the Monster Mash designer paper … that’s right! The beautiful filigree pattern of the Monster Mash designer paper lends itself well to any occasion card. (Do you see a theme here … Our bundles and papers are very versatile).

The card is done in Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla taken from the designer paper. The star image was stamped onto the vanilla and was cut out using the Layering Squares Dies. Now if you are just getting into stamping, you won’t need the dies, just cut them out with your paper cutter. The cute rhinestone in the center comes from the Holiday Rhinestones!

Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest and depth to your projects. And there’s no better way to highlight your greeting than a quick punch in the corner with the Detail Trio punch … don’t you just love that cute little accent and of course I needed to add a little bling!

If you’re giving a friend a beautiful card and want to give them a small gift to show your appreciation, why not use the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies … a yummy truffle fits perfectly in there, or you can use your imagination. Just something to have fun with.

When creating cards … use what you have (even if it was originally for a different holiday). Remember simple patterns work well … just change out the color or the stamp set and the card looks totally different, and you’ll have a stress free stamping day!

Thank you so much for checking in with me today …

I hope you have a beautiful Sunday.

Good news: three days of savings starts next week with the Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza on November 20–22, 2019. I just had to let you know about this upcoming sale, and check back on November 18 for more details.

Star filled Christmas Wishes Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautifully unique card that I designed for my Holiday Stamping Retreat.  It features the new Mercury Glass Designer Acetate which has a faux mercury glass finish on acetate sheets.  This unique acetate highlights our So Many Stars Bundle.

The sky is the limit with so many stars to choose from in the So Many Stars Stamp Set. Create galaxies of projects that dazzle like the cosmos. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. It contains 21 photopolymer stamps so you can let your creativity flow! On this card I used one of the many greetings …

Our greetings were cut out from the Layering Ovals Dies. I used the Whisper White and the Seaside Spray cardstock and ink pad.  I love this new color … one from our newest group of our In-Colors.

The greeting is our focal point to the card but is highlighted with our swag of stars and and a sprinkling of outlying stars.  These Stitched Stars Dies create various custom die-cut stars with faux stitching and more in record time!  There are a whopping 23 stars dies … amazing! This bundle is definitely a must have for your stamp collection … perfect for birthdays, graduations, new promotion, sweet little baby … just to name a few.

Just wanted to share a different view of this card (above) … it highlights the layers and shows how the Seaside Spray color comes through the Mercury Glass Acetate sheet. Our pretty stars are then adorned with the Rhinestone jewels just to add another layer of sparkle and texture … so pretty.

Inside you also get a little peek of the stamped stars … don’t want to leave the inside plain as there are so many star stamps to choose from, and don’t forget to stamp your envelope too!

This was a favorite of many as they were thrilled to be able to use the new Mercury Glass Acetate sheet, and it turned out beautiful.

Thank you for sharing a part of your Saturday with me and got to sit in for a minute at our Holiday Stamping Retreat. YOU should really think about joining us this Spring! 

Save the date: April 24th – 26th, 2020!

Have yourself a wonderful day ~

Seasons Greetings / Guest Stamper: Cindy P.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have another beautiful card today from our Annual Holiday Stamping Retreat using the remarkable Feels Like Frost product suite. Cindy Plzak made this card for our Attendee Card Swap and it is stunning!

You can create custom winter and Christmas die-cut frames in record time using the Frosted Frames Dies, and Cindy did just that in Night of Navy cardstock and highlighted it with the Sparkle Glimmer paper.  It frames one of the beautiful scenes from the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The greeting comes from the Still Scenes Bundle. The Still Scenes Bundle includes the Still Scenes Cling Stamp Set and the Snow Globe Scenes Dies… the proud buck posing in the wintery scene is also included in this die set.

Cindy’s card is a beautiful representation of how Stampin’ Up! stamp sets/bundles coordinate with each other. This takes our card creations to a whole new level … as seen by Cindy’s swap card. So, so pretty!

Thanks for sharing part of your day with Cindy and I today … it is appreciated. I hope you enjoyed Cindy’s card as much as I did. All of the attendee swap cards were beautiful!

I’ll meet you back here tomorrow, till then … Have an awesome day.
