Stampin’ Up! So Happy For You Card

Dies that coordinate with stamped images are helpful, practical, and fun.

But standalone dies make them even more versatile and the cute houses in the Home Together Die caught my eye from the start!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took a Blackberry Bliss pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper and cut it at an angle. I used the long stitched die in the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to give a stitch to the edge.

I wound a piece of Bumblebee Ribbon around a Gold Hoop and secured it with a Gold bow and glued it down.

I then used the Home Together Dies to cut out a house from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and greenery from Bumblebee and Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Nativity Christmas Card

I LOVE white on white, monochromatic cards….
especially for Christmas cards.

For today’s card, I kept it really clean and used Whisper White, Very Vanilla, and Gold.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Peaceful Nativity Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out with the coordinating Nativity Dies and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same Nativity Dies and Gold Foil to cut out the palm trees and star. I stamped the sentiment from the For Unto Us Stamp Set in Versamark ink in the corner, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I then matted this on Gold Foil and adhered it to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Press On Birthday Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge. Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I then matted a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the coffee cup from the Press On Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the bottom using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers I then fussy cut it out.

I stamped the same coffee cup on a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, which I then embossed using one of the folders from the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. I fussy cut the band out and adhered it over the coffee cup.

Underneath it I added a few sprigs, which I cut out from Cajun Craze cardstock using the Sunflower Dies, and some Cinnamon Cider ribbon. I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a Basic Black circle and around I added a few Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Press On Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using the Stitched Nested Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Palette Card

Wednesdays are such a fun day for me.

I have an in-house Stamp Party tomorrow so I’m finalizing things for that…

I send my newsletter out on Wednesdays and there are some fun and important updates in today’s.  If you’d like to receive it, head over here.  I send it out weekly with important updates, offers, news and projects….

And later on tonight I have my Facebook Live Tutorial at 7:30 pm EST and I am really excited about the card.  Watch live and leave a comment of any kind and I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive tonight’s card.

To check out past tutorials head over to my YouTube channel.

On to today’s cards…

I created two cards using the same product but with just a few variations.

My card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a small panel of Soft Sky cardstock and embossed it using the Petal Pair Embossing Folder and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  This folder is really cool because there are two folders in the set, the one I used and then another flowery one.

I stamped the flower image from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink on a nearly square Whisper White cardstock.  I matted this on Soft Sky cardstock and wrapped around some Berry Burst ribbon in a bow before adhering it to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set in Berry Burst ink, cut the end as a banner, and adhered it to the card.  Lastly, I added a few rhinestones around the flower.

For my second variation, I kept things a bit more simple.

But I really believe there’s beauty in simplicity.

Enjoy!
