Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Card

Hi everyone!

Here’s to a great week ahead hopefully filled with some stamping.

My card starts off with Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Forever Lovely Stamp Set to stamp the flowers (Petal Pink) and leaves (Soft Sea Foam) across it.  I then matted this on Whisper White cardstock.

I then took a pattern from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I then added some Petal Pink Ribbon across it.

I used the Well Written Framelits and cut out a “thanks” in Soft Sea Foam cardstock and adhered underneath it a Whisper White “thanks.”  I added a Petal Pink butterfly.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was loosely inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! How to Use the Big Shot Video Tutorial

I had a few customers asking about the Big Shot.

It certainly can be confusing and a little overwhelming when starting off.
So I took advantage of my Facebook Live Tutorial last Wednesday night to go over the ins and outs of using the Big Shot.

This card uses the Let It Ride Stamp Set and (among other things) the Rectangle Stitched Framelits which I’m obsessed with!!!

Tonight I’ll be back with another card for you on my Facebook Page at 7:30 pm EST.  I sure hope you’ll join me!

If you catch it live and leave a comment, at the end I draw someone’s name to receive that card (blank inside of course).

To catch how I made this card and for tips and tricks for using the Big Shot, check out the video below:

Stampin’ Up! Love You To Pieces – HSS #307

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments’ challenge is an inspiration challenge.  I sure hope you’ll play along with us – it’s a fun one!

My card starts off with Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I then layered it with a pattern from the All My Love Designer Series.

I used the Be Mine Framelits to cut out three Whisper White scalloped hearts which I adhered one over the other.  I used the same framelit to cut out another pattern from the All My Love DSP to go inside the scalloped heart.

Before adhering the hearts down, I tied a Lovely Lipstick bow underneath them.

Lastly I used the Love You to Pieces Bundle to stamp the puzzle pieces in Lovely Lipstick ink and cut them out.  I adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimenionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! So Hoppy Together – Sale-A-Bration Card

I had so much fun last week sharing product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog with you.

I just couldn’t leave out the So Hoppy For You Stamp Set.

My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then used Whisper White Baker’s Twine to wrap a bow around the DSP.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the frog and flies in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using Granny Apple Green (frog), Crumb Cake (flies), and Pool Party (unicycle) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink.

I stamped the frog again on a separate Whisper White panel, colored him in, but this time fussy cut him out using Paper Snips, adhering him down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I then matted this on Granny Apple Green cardstock and then on Whisper White cardstock, adhering it all down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Lattice Card

All week I’ve been showcasing cards using product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

This is a special catalog that runs January through March which features free product with a qualified purchase.

Today’s card features the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set.

My card starts off with Shaded Spruce cardstock which I embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Next I stamped the image from the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Watercolor Paper.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then used an Aqua Painter and Shaded Spruce (leaves), Melon Mambo (flowers), and Soft Sea Foam (lattice) inks to color it in.

I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card in a bow and fussy cut out the image, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from another Sale-A-Bration stamp set, the Lasting Lily Stamp Set, in Shaded Spruce ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Enjoy!
