Stampin’ Up! After the Storm Just Because Card

As I type this, ironically, it’s storming outside.

Thunder, lightning, rain – all of it.

Stampin’ Up! After the Storm Just Because Card

Today I’m sharing a card with you using the After the Storm Stamp Set, which I paired with the Basic Borders Dies to create clouds.

I’ve also added some texture using the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder and Clear Epoxy Shapes for rain.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Amazing Card

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

That’s how the phrase goes.
So when I pulled out the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set I remembered this card that I made here, which I absolutely loved.

I decided to just flip things around a bit, keep with the same basic colors, and swap out some of the paper.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

My card starts out with Fresh Freesia cardstock, which I covered with a Fresh Freesia pattern from the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

I then took the beautiful lattice die (that’s what I’m calling it) from the Fabulous Florals Dies and cut out a Fresh Freesia detail from the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Velum. I then adhered this over a panel of Basic White cardstock.

Next I created my flowers using the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set and Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent ink. This stamp uses multistep stamping to create multiple layers of color.

You can see some tricks and tips for using this stamp in this video here.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

I stamped the amazing from the Create with Friends Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and fussy cut a bubble around it. I shared how I did this in my weekly Tips & Tricks email. If you missed it, you can sign up for it here and I’ll include it in this coming week’s email too.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream You Card

I tied a Silver Trim bow underneath the sentiment and added a few rhinestones and epoxy elements around.

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship & Mountain Air Card

I think it is really brilliant how Stampin’ Up! creates suites of product for us. They consist of four different items that are designed to work together and coordinate.

I love them so much that I don’t generally mix product from outside the suites.

But the Beauty of Friendship Bundle and Mountain Air – it’s like they’re family, cousins.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Sometimes when you don’t know what to say, a card does the job.

The Right Behind You Stamp has some really great sentiments of encouragement and friendship and helps make the perfect card to send to show your love and support!

I used it for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop sketch challenge.

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then took a panel of Garden Green cardstock and cut the hill using the Basic Borders Dies. I did this first so I would know placement of the bicycle.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

Using the Stamparatus, I stamped the bicycle and flowers above the hill.

I used the Stamparatus: A) Because I knew it would take a few goes with the Memento Black Ink Pad to get perfect coverage and a crisp look and B) Because I could stamp the bicycle and flowers exactly where they needed to go.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I colored the images in using: Polished Pink (shirt and flowers), Fresh Freesia (shirt and flowers), Ivory (skin), Crumb Cake (hair), Daffodil Delight (hair), and Pale Papaya (flowers) Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin’ Up! Right Behind You Card

I then wound around some Linen Thread into a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Right Behind You Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

My first paper crafting love was scrapbooking. I don’t do it nearly as much as card making (like, once a year as much), but I still love it.

When I saw the What’s Cookin’ Bundle in the Annual Catalog, I knew I NEEDED it for card making and scrapbooking.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

Just think – holiday pictures, barbeques, and fun times cooking in the kitchen. I can’t wait to use it for scrapbooking!!!

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

But last week I used it for my live Wednesday night tutorial to make a fun card. I love the stamped background and the polka dot embossed cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! What’s Cookin’ Card

But do you want to know what my favorite thing is about this card??

The little thread around the handle of the cutting board. Silly, I know. But I just love that little detail.

I’ll be back tonight on Facebook at 7:30 EST with a new card. It’s a, well, um, sorta, uhhhhh…Christmas card.

Don’t throw any tomatoes at me. I was in the mood to make a Christmas card the other day. So join me tonight live. It’s actually a fun fold card, well, a ridiculously easy, almost too easy to be called fun fold card.

If you ever miss any tutorial, you can always check them out over on my YouTube Channel.

Now, to see how I made today’s card, check out the video below:

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Happy Card

You might’ve seen by now that I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE the Art in Bloom Bundle.

Mostly because it’s a trio bundle (stamps, dies, embossing folder) and I think you get a lot of value from it.

I first made a wedding card that you can see here and then I made a friendship card (with video tutorial) that you can see here. Today I bring you another card which I equally love.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Today’s card starts off with Just Jade cardstock, on which I adhered a Just Jade pattern from the 2020-2022 In Colors Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the other floral image in Bumblebee ink and then the inside floral image in the same, but stamping off first. I then ran this through the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Using the dies in the bundle, I cut out Bumblebee flowers to go around the stamped flowers.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Card

Next I stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink on Mint Macaron cardstock, cut it out with the same dies, and adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Friend Card & Video

I am all about value.

Before being a demo especially, I had a tight budget and needed to get the most out of the items I bought. (Mostly why I became a demo – to have the discount)

Looking through the Annual Catalog, hands down I think the product with the most value is the Art in Bloom Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Friend Card

It’s a trio bundle – stamp, dies, embossing folder!

Stampin’ Up! Art in Bloom Friend Card

The value comes in that you can use all three together, each piece separately, or any combination of mixing the three. So. Much. Value.

Today’s card is the one I shared a few weeks back and in the video I share two other cards using this bundle – one I shared a week or so ago and the second I’ll share on Friday.

I’ll be back tonight with another live card tutorial over on Facebook at 7:30 EDT. I sure hope you join me – if you, you’ll have a chance to win the card!!!

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Amazing Card

Most of Stampin’ Up!s dies are part of a bundle – Stamp Set & coordinating Dies.

But the annual catalog includes 9 new dies that although coordinate with lots of other product, aren’t part of a bundle and paired with a specific stamp.

They are:
Basic Borders Dies, Flower Market Dies, Give it a Whirl Dies, Layering Diorama Dies, Picture This Dies, Stitched Greenery Dies, Tailor Made Tags Dies, Warm Wraps Dies, and the Iconic Dies, which I used today.

Actually, if you look quickly through the catalog, you might completely miss them. For me I think it took like five times through the catalog before I saw these Iconic Dies.

The Iconic Dies include great nature images like this bird, leaf, flower, and even bee (see the inside of the card below).

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Card

I decided to cut the images from Basic Black cardstock and give them an ombre background using Blending Brushes and three different colors.

Stampin’ Up! Iconic Dies Card

I made this card live over on YouTube today with tips and tricks for using the Blending Brushes and creating this fun card.

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Card

Of the five new 2021-2023 In Colors, Fresh Freesia I think is my favorite.

It’s such a hard decision, but I just find myself using it a lot!

Today’s card is one I made a few week’s back for my Tuesday YouTube Live tutorial and is really a simple layout overall, but the sparkle of the shimmer paper and Wink of Stella really elevate it.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock which I embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder. I then added a little blink over the embossed cardstock using Wink of Stella.

I then used the Ombre Specialty Paper and Fabulous Florals Dies to cut out a shimmer background for my flowers.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

I created my florals using Fresh Freesia and Gray Granite ink and the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set. It uses multistep stamping, but really gives a nice shade to the images. I cut it out with the coordinating Fabulous Florals Dies and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous Birthday Card

I stamped the sentiment from the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set in Fresh Freesia ink and cut it out using a die from the Floral Gallery Dies.

Stampin Up All Things Fabulous

Lastly, I added a Fresh Freesia bow and some Rhinestones around the card.
