Stampin’ Up! Darling Donkey Valentine’s Day Card

As mentioned yesterday, all this week I’ll be featuring cards that use Sale-a-Bration product…
FREE product!

If you missed yesterday’s card, you can check it out here.

Next up, we have the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set, free with a $50 order.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.

Next I took a pattern from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper and matted it on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

Next I took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the donkey from the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored it in using Crumb Cake (body), Soft Suede (hooves and tail), Real Red (rose), Granny Apple Green (stem), and Petal Pink (ears and nose) Stampin’ Blends.

**If you get my weekly Tips & Updates email, you will have seen a special tip I gave when coloring in an image that makes it pop better. Be sure to try it out when using your Stampin’ Blends Markers.

If you haven’t signed up to receive this weekly email yet, head over here so you don’t miss out on anything. You’ll also receive free tutorials for 5 simple and easy cards.**

I then also stamped the sentiment from the Darling Donkeys in Memento Black Ink and matted it on Real Red cardstock. I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Be sure to play your order of at least $50 to get the Darling Donkeys Stamp Set for FREE!!! It’s super cute and you’ll have a lot of fun stamping with it!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Friend Card

Sale-a-Bration is in full swing and all this week I’m going to be making cards using different stamps and paper FREE in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

Not familiar with SAB (for short)?
It runs through Feb 28th and is full of FREE stamps and Designer Series Paper that you can earn with a qualifying order.

There are Level 1 free items, which are free with a $50 order and Level 2 free items, free with a $100 order. Today I’m using the Berry Blessings Bundle, which is a Level 2 free items. It’s my FAV!!!!

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock, which I covered with one of the patterns from the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper.

I then took another pattern and matted it on Rich Razzlberry cardstock.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and stamped the outline of the leaves in Garden Green ink and the inside in the same, stamping off first. I stamped the outline of the raspberry in Rich Razzleberry ink and the inside in the same, stamping off first.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry ink.

This card came together so quickly and I love it, that I decided to switch up the patterns and use the blueberry images.

I used Pacific Point cardstock for the base and matting, Pacific Point ink for the blueberries, and Garden Green ink.

Thanks for checking out my projects today!

Don’t forget to head over and place your order of $100 to get this Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper Bundle FREE!!!!

Product Needed To Make Today’s Card:

Sweet Creations Ladies Stamping Event

I am super excited to announce the “Sweet Creations” event, a completely virtual stamping event from the comfort and safety of your home!!!

I don’t know about you, but I could really use a fun event to look forward to!

Staying inside with little to no contact has left me aching for a ladies’ night out. Well, why shorten it to just a night out…

From March 19-20, I’ll be hosting a virtual stamping event full of fun and stamping!

I’m sure you have questions. Let’s see if I can cover a few below…

What is the cost?
The cost to participate is $62.50 ($50 for the event, $12.50 for shipping). I will send out a PayPal invoice mid February. Prompt payment is requested. You do not need a PayPal account to pay the invoice.

Please note that only United States residents can participate per Stampin’ Up! policy.

How will I get the goodies?
Prior to the event, you will be mailed a package full of $25 worth of product, the product needed for 3 Make-n-Takes, and 4 surprises. In addition, there will be games and stamping challenges during the event which could win you prizes.

How will the Make-n-Takes work?
For the 3 Make-n-Takes, you will be provided the cardstock, die cut pieces, and embossed paper. You will need to provide the sentiments and ink. I will be using all the sentiments from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp Set, which you are welcome to tack on to the cost of the event or you can use a similar sized sentiment from one you already have.

What platform will be used?
The event will take place mostly in a closed Facebook event. All live stamping and other videos will happen through Zoom. Zoom is an app that will have to be downloaded prior to the event.

What if I miss a live video?
All the live videos will be recorded and posted to YouTube. At the end of the event, an email will go out with all the links to the videos.

This is sure to be a really fun event and I sure hope you’ll participate. There is limited space available.
Be sure to register early so you don’t miss out on all the fun!!!

Head over here to register – I can’t wait to “see” you then!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Ombre Card

Who’s through the moon, over the top, can’t wait, relieved, already in their pajamas excited it’s Friday!!

Okay, maybe it’s just me, but I’m ready for the weekend!!!
To start us off, I’m sharing a simple (but the coloring steps it up a notch) card today.

My card starts off with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and used the Blender Brushes to add (from top to bottom) Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, and Old Olive ink. I used the Potted Succulents Dies to cut out a beautiful overlay from Basic White cardstock, which I adhered over the colored cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Succulents Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss ink. I cut it out, a well as two succulents “dangly things,” one from Old Olive and the other from Pear Pizzazz cardstock, using a label from the same dies.

Underneath I wound around some Blackberry Bliss ribbon and then adhered the label down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Love Card

This month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme is “Love“. Have fun hopping through the different blogs and seeing how everyone interpreted the theme.

My card starts off with Real Red cardstock, which I embossed using the Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder.

Using the Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut out a circle from one of the patterns in the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper and adhered it on a panel of Basic White cardstock which I matted on a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.

I took two other patterns from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper and fussy cut them out, adhering them over the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Posted For You Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I added a cute little heart next to it.

Stampin’ Up! Corner Bouquet Hello Card

I’m back!

It’s been a long three weeks since I’ve done a live tutorial, but now I’m back and so excited to share a card with you tonight!!!

You may even want to especially make sure you join me tonight (hint, hint) because maybe, just maybe (wink, wink) I will have something for a lucky someone to win. 😉

So set an alarm, 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page!

Now on to today’s card. My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock.

I then used the Layering Square Dies to cut out a square from a piece of copy paper to make a stencil. I placed this over a piece of Basic White cardstock and used the Blending Brushes to add ink. I applied Bumblebee ink to the top and Cinnamon Cider ink to the bottom. I then stamped the flower image from the Corner Bouquet Stamp Set in Cinnamon Cider ink.

I matted this on another panel of Basic White cardstock and adhered it to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a couple of Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots to the side of the image.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Cinnamon Cider cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I snipped the ends in a banner, adhering it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

I made video creating a very similar card using the Blending Brushes, which will you give you a closer look at how to use them. You can check it out here.
