Stampin’ Up! Counting Sheep Congrats Card

Ready for a super cute and adorable card using the Counting Sheep Stamp Set…

Stampin' Up! Counting Sheep Congrats Card

I really wanted to make a baby card using this layout, but would you believe I don’t have not one stamp that has a welcome baby sentiment…not one! So I found this super fun sentiment that totally worked.

Stampin' Up! Counting Sheep Congrats Card

I had to cancel last week’s Facebook live due to technology troubles but I’ll be back tonight at 7:30 EDT.

Stampin’ Up! September 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I don’t know about you, but my husband and I still race to get the mail.

Why?! Couldn’t tell you.
It’s usually either bills or junk

One thing I do love getting is my monthly Paper Pumpkin subscription.

Whether you’re a brand new stamper or been stamping for decades, it’s really nice to have a go-to kit where all the planning and design is done for you and you get to make beautiful projects.

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

I then took a pattern from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper and matted it on Merry Merlot cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

I then used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a Basic White panel. On it I stamped the pig and leaves images from the Joyful Life Stamp Set in Memento Black ink. I colored them in using Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

I matted this on a Merry Merlot panel and adhered it over the card front.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Feels Like Home Stamp Set in Memento Black ink, trimmed the end in a banner, and adhered it over the panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a couple of sequins around the card.

Stampin' Up! Joyful Life Thank You Card

Thanks for checking out my project today!!

Be sure to check back on Thursday, as I’ll be sharing another card using the adorable Joyful Life Stamp Set!!!

Stampin’ Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

I have been wanting to use the Festive Foliage Stamp Set for a very long time now!!

I’ve seen it embossed in gold a couple of times now by other demos, and I just LOVE how it looks.

Stampin' Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

I took some creative liberties with the sketch challenge this week to sort of make it work with this beautiful product. 😉

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop September Sketch Challenge'

My card starts off with Evening Evergreen cardstock. I stamped the big image from the Festive Foliage in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I stamped the big image from the Festive Foliage in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I used the Christmas Trimmings Dies and cut out a big star from Cherry Cobbler, a detailed star from Gold Foil, holly leaves from Soft Succulent, and holly berries from Cherry Cobbler.

Stampin' Up! Tidings & Trimmings Christmas Card

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and snipped the ends in a banner.

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

Last week I used the Intricate Leaves Dies to make a cut that cut out a leaf.

Normally you would use the leaf as a focal point in a card, but for that card I used the cut out piece as a frame.
You can check out that card here.

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

I then took the cut out leaf and made today’s card as part of last week’s Facebook live video.

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

What I love about this card is the stamped background that was created using the Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set. Making my out Designer paper is something I really love to do!!

Normally, at this point in my blog post I’d be telling you to join me tonight for another live tutorial.

However, if you caught my YouTube live yesterday you’ll know that there’s something wrong with the sound on my phone. Gotta love technology.

Anyways, so unfortunately my live tonight is canceled.

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Card

Is it bad that I’m kind of hoping I get a new phone out of this?!

After all it is a NEED for my business. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins Thank You Card

I love simple.

You can’t imaging how many blog posts I start like that.
Maybe because I feel the pressure to explain why I’ve left my card design without the bells and whistles.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Card

But whatever the reason may be, I truly do love simple.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Card

I used the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle once before to make a non-traditional colors thank you card, which I LOVE. But I also really love orange pumpkins with hints of green and gold.

Stampin' Up! Pretty Pumpkins Card

The Pretty Pumpkins Bundle is an absolute must-have this fall!

Stampin’ Up! Beautifully Penned Card

One of the beautiful products you can receive for for free during Sale-a-bration is the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.

The patterns are the same as those found in the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper, but are in black and white.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Penned Card

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Penned Card

I then took a pattern from the Hand-Penned DSP and the same pattern but in gray from the Beautifully Penned DSP.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Penned Card

I lined them up and cut them 4″ in. I then cut one of them at 2″ and adhered it over the other. Because they’re the same pattern, they perfectly align up.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Penned Card

I used the Penned Flowers Dies to cut out a floral image from Vellum. I stamped the sentiment from the After the Storm Stamp Set in Memento Black ink, cutting the end in a banner.

Stampin' Up! Beautifully Penned Card

Lastly, I added a couple of Pastel Pearls under the sentiment.

Be sure to place your $50 during Sale-a-bration so you can get the Beautifully Penned DSP for free!!!

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

Did you catch my card on Wednesday?

I used the Delivering Cheer Stamp and made a super cute Christmas card.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

It was part of my Facebook live I did last week, in which I also showed this super adorable birthday card using the same Delivering Cheer Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

I made the same basic design but swapped out the Christmas DSP for a pattern from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

Instead of stamping on a Basic White panel, I stamped and then cut it out using the Scalloped Contours Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

Lastly, instead of paper piecing the present and bow, I paper pieced her skirt using the same pattern of Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

To color in the presents, I used Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The outside sentiment came from the Sweets & Treats Stamp Set and the inside from the Sunny Sentiments Stamp Set.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Birthday Card

If you’re not familiar with paper piecing, you can check out the video below. It’s the beginning of the Christmas card, but I walk you through how to do the skirt.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Thank You Kindly Card

Sale-a-bration is a great time to earn free product with qualifying orders.

What’s better than free product!!!

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

I used the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. It’s free right now during Sale-a-bration with a $100 order.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop August 26 Color Challenge- Pick At Least3 Bumblebee Calypso Coral Soft Succulent Misty Moonlight Crumb Cake'

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock, which I covered with a pattern from the Harvest Meadow Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

I then took another pattern from the Harvest Meadow DSP and matted it on Basic White cardstock. I took another panel of Basic White cardstock and matted it on Bumblebee cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

I stamped the outline image from the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set in Bumblebee, and the inside image in Bumblebee, stamped off first. I did the same with the leaves, stamping the outline in Soft Succulent and the inside image in Soft Succulent stamping off first.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

I fussy cut them out and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set in Soft Succulent ink and cut it into two separate lines using the masking technique.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

I love when Stampin’ Up! gets extra creative with their stamps like with the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set.

I used it last week for my Facebook Live tutorial. I showed this fun Christmas card and the same layout but as a birthday card as well, which you’ll see on Friday.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

This Christmas card is unique first because of the little piece of Designer Series Paper that pokes out the side next to the stitched scalloped edge.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

I also did some fun fussy cutting and paper piecing to make presents at her feet.

Stampin’ Up! Delivering Cheer Christmas Card

The great part about the Delivering Cheer Stamp Set is you can make so many different images just by mix and matching them. Be sure to check out my post on Friday to get a look at the birthday card, especially if fussy cutting isn’t your thing. 😉
