Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy Baby Card

Happy President’s Day! If you have off from work today, I hope you’re able to relax and have some fun. I have an unconventional baby card to share today. This is for a country girl, expecting her first baby, who enjoys the outdoors and camping, so I wanted to use the foxes from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy stamp set and put them in a rustic woodland setting. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut the treetop from the Sweet Silhouettes dies from a Mossy Meadow panel and adhered it to the front of a Sahara Sand card base. I ripped the edge of a panel of Forever Greenery designer series paper and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake and adhered the panel to a panel of In Good Taste designer series paper so that it was offset. I adhered them both to the card front.

I stamped the little foxes from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy stamp set on a Very Vanilla panel in Early Espresso ink and colored them with Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Petal Pink and Bronze Stampin Blends. I cut it out with the largest stitched oval die from the Stitched Shapes dies and sponged the edge with Crumb Cake ink. I applied some Stampin’ Seal to the Forever Greenery panel and looped some linen thread around it and popped the fox panel on with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy stamp set on a small panel of Very Vanilla and trimmed the top part of the sentiment. I sponged it lightly with Crumb Cake ink and adhered it to the card with a wooden leaf sprig and lace bow. I finished the card with three champagne rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, carefully inked the bottom of the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy stamp set in Early Espresso ink and stamped it on a Very Vanilla panel. I tore the top edge of the Forever Greenery DSP strip and sponged it with Crumb Cake and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered a strip of In Good Taste on top and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

A rustic woodland motif is not your normal baby card, but it’s a natural for these sweet foxes and it’s fun to change things up! I hope you like it.

Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Friendship Card

Good morning and welcome to Simple Stamping Saturday! Today I’m sharing a cute friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit stamp set. This is one of the cute stamp sets in the Beginner’s Brochure and you can view the brochure in the right sidebar if you haven’t seen it yet. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

And today’s card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #472 – a perfect sketch for many simple stamping techniques!

The Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit photopolymer stamp set is a light hearted two step stamp set with pretty fruits, little smily faces and punny sentiments. I stamped the pineapple top in Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White panel and then stamped the pineapple body under it in Bumblebee ink. I found it easier to line up when I stamped the top first because the ink is darker and it’s easier to see through the lighter inked stamp for better alignment. Then I stamped the pineapple on a post-it note and fussy cut it to make a mask.

I adhered the post-it note mask to cover the pineapple and stamped the watermelon center from the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit stamp set in Melon Mambo ink next to the pineapple, overlapping the masked pineapple. Doesn’t it make the watermelon look like it’s behind the pineapple? I stamped the watermelon rind in Shaded Spruce next to the watermelon, aligning the tops. On a separate Basic White panel, I stamped the orange center in Pumpkin Pie after stamping off and then the orange peel in Pumpkin Pie, aligning the centers. I fussy cut the orange. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat.

I trimmed the ends of strips of Melon Mambo, Mossy Meadow and Bumblebee DSP and adhered them together and then to the panel with glue dots. I adhered the orange to the panel with dimensionals and adhered a linen thread bow next to it with a glue dot. I popped the panel on the front of a Melon Mambo card base.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pineapple in Mossy Meadow and Bumblebee like the front in the corner of a Basic White panel. I covered it with the post-it note mask and stamped the watermelon next to it in Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce. In the opposite corner, I stamped the orange in Pumpkin Pie and then adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

There are other fruits in the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit stamp set, so I’ll have to play with it again soon. In addition to the stamp set, you can purchase the Cute Fruit Cards & Tags Project Collection (item 155420) which comes with the stamp set, a stamp block, a pack of White card stock and a set of 8 Stampin’ Spots ink pads for $58.25 (before shipping and taxes). This is perfect for a beginning stamper because it has everything you need in one package! And it will also qualify for a Level 1 Sale A Bration item through the end of this month!

Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a sweet floral card made with the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle and the beautiful Hydrangea Hill designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here’s the beautiful color palette we’re using. Luckily all of these colors are in the beautiful Hydrangea Hill panel I chose, but I did use Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight and Old Olive for my flower and sentiments.

I adhered a panel of Hydrangea Hill designer series paper to a Seaside Spray mat and popped it on the front of a Misty Moonlight card base with dimensionals. I stamped the outline of the hydrangea from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven photopolymer stamp set in Old Olive ink on a Thick Whisper White panel. I stamped the solid leaves and stem over the outline image in Old Olive and cut out the flower with the coordinating die.

I used the top of the flower die to cut a Seaside Spray panel with the flower. After trimming the stem, I adhered it to the top of the Thick Basic White flower. I stamped the solid flower from the Stampin’ Up! hydrangea Haven stamp set in Seaside Spray ink on a Basic White panel. I cut it out with the pierced petal flower die and gently bent each petal upward. I adhered it to the Seaside Spray flower with tiny dots of liquid glue and adhered a pearl to each flower center. I applied some adhesive sheets to the back of the Old Olive panel and cut out the outline leaves and stem die. I peeled off the adhesive backing and applied it to the stem and leaves.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the second largest Stitched So Sweetly scalloped Rectangle die. I adhered the label to the card front with liquid glue and popped the flower on with dimensionals. I adhered a Metallic Seaside Spray bow to the flower to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowers in the corner in Seaside Spray ink and masked the flowers and added some leaves to the bottom. I trimmed the side of the panel with a strip of the Hydrangea Hill DSP and adhered the panel to a Seaside Spray mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hydrangea Haven bundle is a great bundle for making hydrangeas, and it has so many sweet sentiments! And the Hydrangea Hill designer series paper is really beautiful!

Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime Wedding Card

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a Wedding Card made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime and Forever Blossoms stamp sets and Lasting Elegance dies. There are so many stamp sets and bundles that are currently available to make beautiful, elegant wedding cards and it makes it difficult to choose. So let’s get started looking at some of the options. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I love the Lasting Elegance dies, so I used both of the floral dies to cut a panel of the new Sahara Sand foil. This foil is so pretty – like a soft gold. I adhered the die cut panel to a Basic White panel and wrapped a length of Polka Dot Tulle around it, securing it in the back and popped the panel to the front of a Thick Basic White card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly Die. The Sahara Sand ink looks great with the foil and looks more like gold than brown.

I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and added three white elegant gems. I made a bow with the polka dot tulle ribbon and adhered it next to the label to finish the card.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped part of the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime cling stamp set in the upper corner in Sahara Sand ink and adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat.

This card was pretty easy to put together and is so elegant!! The Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime and Forever Blossoms are just two of the beautiful wedding themed stamp sets currently available. And be sure to check out the Love You Always foil sheets and other specialty papers to give your wedding card an extra elegant touch.

Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe Birthday Card for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Morning! Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is Birthday and I made a sweet birthday card with the little giraffe from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set. This is a great stamp set for making children’s cards, new baby cards or any animal theme card – and the globe stamps coordinate with the Snow Globe scene dies and shaker dome to make shaker cards! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the little giraffe from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small Basic White panel. I positioned the small rectangle die from the Stitched with Whimsey dies on the panel around the giraffe and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine to die cut a pretty stitched frame around the giraffe.

I colored the giraffe with the So Saffron and Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I positioned the giraffe panel on the So Saffron panel and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black underneath. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a So Saffron card base.

I adhered the giraffe panel to the card front on top of the sentiment using dimensionals. I finished the card by wrapping a length of black and white twine around the fold and tying a bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Globe stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the little bird next to the sentiment and the balloons on the bottom. I colored the images with Stampin Blends – Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Night of Navy – and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited Video Tutorial

Good Monday Morning! I hope that it’s the start of a wonderful week for you! This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon featuring the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle along with the Well Suited designer series paper. I fell in love with this bundle at first sight. I’ve always liked cards that look like clothes and with lots of guys in my family, I need to make lots of masculine cards. And the suit card that you can make with this bundle is perfect! It makes a beautiful (handsome?) card and it does so very easily! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I lined up a panel of the Well Suited grey pinstripe designer series paper on my grid paper and placed the large V die from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle so that it lined up at the 1″ and 3-1/4″ mark on the ruler and secured it with some washiest tape. This gives you a well centered jacket. I ran it through my die cutting machine to cut the jacket. I adhered it to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue just around the outside edge, leaving the V open so I could tuck the tie underneath.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited dies, I cut the collar piece from Basic White and the two tie pieces from the Well Suited designer series paper. I cut the knot in a different direction from the long tie and adhered it to the top of the tie with liquid glue. I adhered the collar to the top of the card aligning it even with the top of the card and centered in the opening. I applied the liquid glue only to the top edge so that I could slip the tie under the bottom of the collar.

I applied a little liquid to the tie and slipped it under the jacket and then tucking it under the collar. I slid it into position so it was straight and pressed. I adhered the jacket lapel and the chest pocket with liquid glue and adhered two Basic Gray buttons, one near the top of the V and one at the bottom. I finished the tie with a silver metallic pearl tie tac.

For the inside, I didn’t want to use the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited great Father’s Day sentiment (It’s way too early), so I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the same Well Suited DSP as the tie and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is a wonderful set for making masculine cards. I’m really impressed at how great the suit looks and how easy it was to put together. It’s definitely a bundle you need if you make a lot of masculine cards.

Stampin’ Up! In Bloom Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share some pretty cards made with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle. This is a versatile floral bundle with bold, modern graphic designs and fun sentiments. And the flower die cuts have stitched motifs that give the flowers extra texture and interest! Here are some simple cards made by the Stampin’ Up! Design team to give you some ideas:

I love how the large flowers are double stamped, giving a fuller flower and adding dimension. See the cute stitched die cut flowers? I have to try the pleated ribbon technique soon – that’s such a nice touch.


This card is so retro and I just love it! I especially love the diagonal sentiment inset contrasting with the stamped floral faux DSP!

This card really shows off the stitched die cut flowers and leaves. How cleaver to have a box opening with a burst of flowers!

There are simple recipes for making these cards with the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle, and you can get them HERE. I need to get this bundle out and play with it more this week as I have only used it on last week’s card with the Paper Blooms Sale A Bration DSP. Here are close ups of the stamps and dies. Click on the pictures to get the full descriptions and to shop in my Online Store.

Thanks for looking and I hope you consider the Stampin’ Up! In Bloom bundle for your next floral stamp set.


Join me for a Facebook Live at 1:00 PM ET Today

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page at 1:00 ET this afternoon. Stop by my Facebook Page to see my card made with the Handsomely Suited bundle. Look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering Hello Card

Good morning and welcome to Simple Stamping Saturday! Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering stamp set to make a simple card with just stamped images. I use four colors of ink, three card stock colors and the beautiful two step stamp set! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I start by stamping the large outline stamp with all the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamp it once on the lower left side of a Basic White panel, ink it up again and stamp it along the bottom. Finally I stamp it a couple of times to fill in the lower left corner. I position my stamps so that I have a graceful curve on the stamped images as contrasted to the white, and it’s easy to do with the photopolymer stamp.

Then comes the two step stamping. There are little leaf stamps that fill in the outline leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering stamp set, so I stamp all the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. For the butterflies, each butterfly also has a solid stamp and a detailed stamp. I stamp all the butterflies in Mango Melody ink with the coordinating solid butterfly stamp and I stamp all the detail stamps in Poppy Parade. And my main panel is done – the two step stamp sets make it so easy and there are so many cute ones in the current catalogs, so look for the ‘two step’ designation.

I adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat that is 1/8″ larger on both sides using Stampin’ Seal (but you could also use liquid glue if you prefer). Then I adhere the layered panel to the front of a Mango Melody card base with dimensionals. Dimensionals are foam with adhesive on both sides, so it makes your card kind of 3D. Adding a mat and popping up the stamped panel makes your card extra nice and elegant! The final step is to add the sentiment. I used the sentiment from the A Little Lace stamp set, stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a skinny strip of Mango Melody card stock. I adhere the label to the card front with more dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I carefully position the large stamp to get the large butterfly in the bottom corner of a Basic White panel and stamp it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamp the leaf in the top corner as well and stamp the filler stamps the same was as on the card front, using Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Poppy Parade. I adhere the stamped panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then adhere both to the inside of the card.

My simple stamping tips for today –

  1. Use two step stamps to easily incorporate your favorite colors
  2. Add a mat to frame your work
  3. Pop your artwork with dimensionals

Keep it simple but elegant and the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering is a great set to start with two step stamping.

Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a masculine birthday card made with the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle and Well Suited designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here’s the sketch we’re using.

My card also works for the #TGIFC301 challenge at TGIF Challenges with a fun plaid theme:

I started by adhering a panel of the Pacific Point and tweed plaid panels of Well Suited designer series paper to Basic Black mats. I adhered the small panel flush with the top of it’s mat and then I adhered the small panel to the large one, aligning the top of the DSP panels.

I slipped a buckle on the Gray Granite ribbon and wrapped it around the layered panel, adhering it in the back. I adhered the panel to the front of a Basic Gray card base. I stamped the large bow tie from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small panel of Poppy Point paper from the Well Suited DSP pack and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut out another bow tie from Basic White and adhered it to the back of the tie to make it stiffer.

I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the bottom of a small Basic White panel and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I popped the bow tie on top of the sentiment with dimensionals and popped the label on the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with tweed paper from the Well Suited designer series paper pack and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Handsomely Suited bundle is a great new bundle for making masculine cards, especially with the coordinating Well Suited designer series paper.

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Thank You Card

Happy Wednesday! Here in Southeast Pennsylvania, the snowing has stopped and the ground is so pretty with all the snow! It’s still cold so it’s a good day to stay in and make cards. Today’s card is a simple thank you card made with a couple of Sale A Bration items – The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart cling stamp set and the Flower and Field designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by die cutting both sides of a Flirty Flamingo panel with the fancy, lacy die from the Ornate Borders dies. I adhered a panel of Flower and Field Sale A Bration designer series paper to the front of the die cut and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Just Jade card base with dimensionals.

I cut out the embossed butterfly from the Fluttering dies using Bumblebee card stock. Isn’t it pretty!! I love the embossed details in the wings! I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Heal Your Heart stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Thick Basic White card stock and cut it out with the third smallest scalloped rectangle die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the butterfly with glue dots. I made a bow with Just Jade gingham ribbon and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card with two small matte black dots on the butterfly.

For the inside of the card, I adhered another strip of Flower and Field DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I cut another strip of Flirty Flamingo with the lacy border die and adhered it on top of the DSP with tiny dots of liquid glue (I always forget to use my adhesive strips – this would have been perfect). I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set and Flower and Field DSP are both Sale A Bration Level 1 items that are FREE with $50 in purchases (before shipping and taxes). And did you know that if your order total is over $100 you can get them both for FREE! Or you could choose one of the Level 2 items for FREE instead! The Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set is full of thoughtful sentiments written in the most beautiful script! The Flower and Field designer series paper has many pretty floral designs that work well with lots of stamps and punches. I love them both!
