Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

You know when you tell yourself you don’t NEED that stamp set…
and then you see everyone making the most adorable cards with it and suddenly you NEED it immediately?!

Am I the only one?
That’s what happened with the Party Puffins Stamp Set and I am so glad I got it!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

My card starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock which I covered with a pattern from the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper.

**The Snail Mail Designer Series Paper is retiring and only available right now while supplies last! So don’t wait!!

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and used the Stamparatus to stamp the puffin in Memento Black ink.

I used the Stamparatus because I wanted a really dark, crisp stamped image and would highly recommend using it if you’re stamping with the Party Puffins Stamp.

Stampin’ Up! Party Puffins Birthday Card

On a separate piece of Basic Black, I stamped three fish, the puffin with the party hat, and the sentiment. I colored everything in using the Bermuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers,

I fussy cut the fish out and the party hat off and adhered them down. I then added a few rhinestones around the fish.

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.

Stampin’ Up! Autumn Tasteful Touches Card

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

All this week I’m focusing on Designer Series Paper.  All my cards use DSP and I’m sharing my favorite ways to use it.

Many of the images on the Designer Series Paper are patterns of actual images of something.  You then can look amongst your stamps to find stamped images that coordinate with the pattern.

For example, the pattern from the Poinsettia Pattern DSP that I used today has pinecones, so I paired it with the pinecones from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set!

My card starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper on Soft Suede cardstock and offset a panel of Garden Green cardstock underneath.

I stamped the sentiment from the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla ink and cut it out with the coordinating Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the pinecones from the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut it out using the Beautiful Boughs Dies and added a ribbon above it.

Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper Card – Day 3 – Video Tutorial

All this week I’ve been sharing cards that use Designer Series Paper.
And I’m also sharing the top ways I like to use it.

If you missed Day 1, you can see it here and Day 2 here.

This is all leading up to a Designer Series Paper sale beginning October 1st – 15% off select Designer Series Paper.

AND on any order $50+ when you order at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, I’m throwing in a free pack of solid cardstock (in addition to the free $9 item).

Day 3: I love using Designer Series Paper for what they’re designed for.

What do I mean?  Whether it’s a snowflake pattern, tree pattern, heart pattern, or a pattern with people – I use it for just that.  If there’s an actual image being shown, I use it on my card for what it actually is.

Today, I wanted a background to my skiing buddy, so I went for a snowflake pattern.

Today’s card is the one I shared last week for my Facebook live.  It uses the super cute Freezin’ Fun Bundle in the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog and I paired it with the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.

I’ll be back tonight with another live demonstration at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook page.  Catch it live and you’ll have a chance to win the card!

If you ever miss a tutorial, you can check them out on my YouTube channel.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Card

There’s a great Designer Series Paper sale starting October 1st…
15% off select Designer Series Paper from the Annual and Mini Catalogs.

In light of this, all my cards this week will use Designer Series Paper and share one of my favorite ways to use it.

If you missed day one, click here.

I like to use Designer Series Paper to add a small detail to my cards.  Sometimes you just want a little extra “oomph” and it’s perfect for just that.  It doesn’t have to be the focal point of a project, but still can add a nice little detail to it.

My card today starts off with Gray Granite cardstock.  I cut a small pattern from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper to adhere to the card front.  I took two smaller panels of Gray Granite cardstock and stamped the wheat from the Gather Together Stamp Set in Gray Granite ink on the bottom.

I matted these on Whisper White cardstock and adhered them down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same Gather Together Stamp Set and stamped the big pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie ink, one small cluster of pumpkins in Gray Granite ink, and the second one in Crumb Cake ink.  I colored them in using Stampin’ Blends Markers in the same colors.

I cut them out with the coordinating Gathered Leaves Dies.  I used the same dies to cut out leaves from Basic Gray, Pumpkin Pin, and Crumb Cake cardstock to go behind the pumpkins.

When I was all done, I realized I hadn’t left room for the sentiment, so I decided to stamp the sentiment on the inside in Gray Granite ink.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!


Today’s card is part of the new challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Be sure to play along with this new inspiration challenge!


Save 15% on select Designer Series Paper in the month of October!!  This is a GREAT time to stock up!

Stampin’ Up! Week of Designer Series Paper – Day 1

Let’s talk Designer Series Paper for a second.

October 1st Stampin’ Up! is doing a Designer Series Paper sale – 15% off select DSP from the Annual and Mini Catalog!!

And you can’t have Designer Series Paper without solid cardstock, so if your order is $50+ and you buy at least one pack of Designer Series Paper, in the month of October, I’m giving away a free pack of cardstock (on top of your free $9 item)!

In light of this sale, I will be using Designer Series Paper on ALL my cards this week and sharing the different ways I like to use it.

If you’re unsure what colors to use – look at the colors Stampin’ Up! puts together in their Designer Series Paper.  They know what they’re doing and many times will use combinations of colors that I won’t have thought of.

For the foliage in today’s card, I took the colors right from a pattern from the Plaid Tidings DSP.

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry (leaf), Cajun Craze (acorn), and Pumpkin Pie (leaf) on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out using the Autumn Pack Punches.  I stamped off first for the lighter solid image.

Lastly I added a few Artistry Blooms Sequins around.

Thanks for checking out my project today!!!
Be sure to take a look at the upcoming Designer Series Paper sale and get your wish list ready!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
