Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Card

Wednesday I shared a card that I made as part of my October Team Mystery Stamping.

This was the original card that I worked off of, so you’ll see the general same layout, but different product which makes a whole new feel.

My card starts off with So Saffron cardstock which I embossed using the Timber Embossing Folder.

I then added a Pumpkin Pie pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper to the card front. I then matted a pattern from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper on Basic White cardstock.

I stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Memento Black ink and colored it in using So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends.

I cut it out using the Sunflowers Dies, as well as a few sprigs from Soft Suede cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Lastly, I added a ribbon and some sequins next to the sunflower.

Be sure to CASE (copy and selectively edit) this very simple, yet full of texture and layers, card!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Card

Each month I do a Mystery Stamping Evening with my team.

These are super fun because although all the cards look similar, they’re all completely unique.
Friday I’ll be sharing my other card (and those from the team), but I thought I’d share this card today.

It uses some favorites of mine from the Annual Catalog that haven’t gotten much love since I’ve been knee deep in Christmas cards.

The stamp is the Prized Peony, the embossing folder is the Macrame EF, and the paper is the In Good Taste DSP.

To make the flower a little special I did a little two tone stamping, which I will show you exactly how to do in my live tonight.

I made this card as part of my Wednesday night live tutorial over on Facebook.

We have a treat for you this month’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

It’s a theme hop for “Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays” projects.

I kept things super, super clean and simple with my card today.

What makes this simple card extra fun is the sentiment.

It’s designed to be a straight sentiment but because it’s a photopolymer stamp, you can bend it into a curve.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Fussy Cut Card

This past weekend I went away on a scrapbooking retreat.

It was glorious and so refreshing, and of course fun to be scrapbooking, something I don’t do often. You can see some of the layouts here.

But after going to be past 1:00 am every night (or is that day?!), I fell asleep at 8:00 last night!
Needless to say, this post is going out a little later than usual.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Card

My card today starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Present Card

My go-to is a standard card, but every now and then I see something that catches my eye.

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Present Card

I saw a card that Erica Cerwin made in the shape of a present, and I knew I wanted to try my hand at it.

I used her design as a jumping off point, but used my own measurements.

I made this card as part of my Wednesday afternoon YouTube live tutorial. You can catch the replay below.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

Two weeks ago, I shared a series of projects using a common product.

You really seemed to like this, as you got to see the product used in different ways.

I thought I would do something similar this week, using my FAVORITE Christmas Designer Series Paper – the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

My card today starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock which I embossed using the Wintry Embossing Folder. If you’re wondering how to get the mini embossing folder to emboss a full card front, I show exactly how to do this in this video here.

I then took three patterns from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and matted them on Evening Evergreen cardstock.
