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.

To see how I made today’s card, check out the video below:

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.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Splendor Foam Adhesive Sheet Card

I am loving the Foam Adhesive Sheets.

They’re great to add dimension on small pieces (or large pieces) when regular Stampin’ Dimensionals wouldn’t fit.

I used them two weeks ago for my Facebook Live video.  In it I mentioned that I made a card using the Foam Adhesive Sheets with more intricate snowflakes and I wanted to share it with you today.

My card starts off with Misty Moonlight cardstock.  I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Balmy Blue cardstock.

I took a pattern from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper and cut the bottom of it using a die from the Pine Woods Dies.  I adhered this down using Stampin’ Dimensionals and stamped the sentiment from the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set in Balmy Blue ink in the corner.

Lastly, I then used the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Foam Adhesive Sheets to cut out snowflakes.  I also cut a few out of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.

You’ll want to check out this video I did using the Foam Adhesive Sheets to see how to use them.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Magic in this Night Card

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

My card starts off with Rich Razzleberry cardstock, which I embossed using the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder.  To give it a little more depth, I used a sponge and brushed it across the embossed paper to give it darkened areas.

I then used the Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper and cut four squares.  I matted them each on Pretty Peacock cardstock and then on a longer piece of Whisper White cardstock.

On the Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink.

Using the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a scalloped edge from Basic Black cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Love for Leaves Fall Hello Card

The Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper is a great pack of all different patterns of plaid.

There are Christmas patterns and fall patterns, even Valentine’s Day, and then some general plaids.

The plaid I picked for today’s card reminds me of a beautiful poncho and I knew I had to use it for an all occasion fall card.

My card starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock, which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I then took a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper using the Layering Circles Dies.  I used the Stitched Leaves Dies to cut out a leaf from the circle.

I cut out a scalloped Cajun Craze circle using the same Circle Dies and then used the Stitched Leaves Dies again to make an impression of a leaf in it.  I adhered the plaid over the Cajun Craze circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Love for Leaves Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today.

Stampin’ Up! Team Card – Celebration Tidings

This past Sunday our Stampin’ Up! team had a virtual get together.

Four of us shared cards we made using the Celebration Tidings Bundle, and I had the pleasure of sharing today’s Christmas card.

It’s just a great team to be part of, and it’s ever growing.  Right now there’s a great deal with the Grab & Go Starter Kit and we would love for you to join the team!  Don’t wait -reach out to me for more details.  I’d love for you to join us at our next get together.

My card starts off with Cherry Cobbler cardstock, which I embossed using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (matted on Whisper White) and a smaller one from Shaded Spruce cardstock (adhered down using Stampin’ Dimensionals).

Next I stamped the “floral” image from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using the Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut it out using the Celebration Labels Dies.

*Note:  When positioning it, the floral image should be at the bottom of die.

I folded it over and then stamped the sentiment from the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set on the inside in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Thanks for checking out my project today!
