Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick Happy Day Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick is a cute cling stamp set that came out for a short time a couple of years ago. And it was brought back this spring as a bundle with the cutest set of coordinating dies! But it will only be available until the end of this month, so I wanted to make a card with it before it’s gone. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Crumb Cake panel with the new Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Crumb cake card base with liquid glue. I wrapped the card front with a length of Bumblebee gingham ribbon and tied a knot on the side. I cut the henhouse from the Chick dies from Crumb Cake and adhered it to the card front with glue dots.

I cut the largest circle from the Layering Circles dies and colored a background with Crumb Cake, Garden Green. Balmy Blue and Pacific Point inks using my Blending Brushes. I cut the cornstalk and cornhusks from Garden Green and the corn from So Saffron. I adhered the corn to the cornhusks and adhered three of them to the cornstalk before adhering the cornstalk to the circle. I die cut the fence from Smoky Slate and adhered it to the circle over the cornstalk with dots of liquid glue.

I die cut the sign from Soft Suede and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick stamp set on it in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the sign to the circle with glue dots. I applied some adhesive strip behind a Cinnamon Cider panel and cut the little seeds. I removed the backing from the seeds and adhered them to the circle. I finally stamped the hen from the Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I popped the hen into the scene with dimensionals and popped it all onto the card front with more dimensionals.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the little egg from the Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel and colored the little feet with Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends. I stamped the sentiment next to the egg and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Isn’t the Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick bundle so cute? The Chick dies are so detailed and make wonderful little farm scenes! The hens are cute too and the sentiments are simple and perfect. So hurry so you can get yours while it’s still available! On another note, the Hey Birthday Chick cling stamp set and coordinating Birthday Chick dies will still be available next month, the bundle pricing with the 10% discount will also end on June 30.

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This pretty bundle is so versatile and fun to play with. I based my card on a similar one in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog, but made a flower with lots of dimension! 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 adhered a panel of Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base. I embossed a Seaside Spray panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and cut it with the second largest Stitched with Whimsey die. I adhered it to the front of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

I cut the flowers from the Dandy Wishes Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes bundle from Bumblebee card stock and colored the stem with the Mossy Meadow Stampin Blend. I cut the lacy flower from vellum. I cut the dandelion leaves from Mossy Meadow and grass leaves from Garden Green. I adhered the Vellum to the card front with a glue dot in the center. I gently bent the petals up in the Bumblebee petal clusters and adhered them together with glue dots and finished the center with a little octagon colored with the Mango Melody Stampin Blend. I adhered the Bumblebee flower next to the Vellum flower so that the tips of the petal covered any visible glue dot. I adhered the grasses and leaves to the card front with glue dots, starting with the long grass, the leaves next and finishing with the short grass on top. I also trimmed the bottom of the stems so they’re even with the grass bottoms.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a strip of Basic White and trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensional and accented it with a short length of Bumblebee Gingham trim tied with a Linen Thread bow. I finished the card front with a little bumble die cut from the Dandy Garden 6″x 6″ DSP.

For the inside, I stamped the dandelion from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes stamp set in twice stamped off Mossy Meadow ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Dandy Garden DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes bundle is really great for making with Spring cards! I spent some time in my garden this week and found a few budding dandelions that I pulled and they reminded me of this pretty suite, so I knew I had to pull it out. I love the contrast of the modern, angular die cut flower with the fine line drawn images – so many ways to use this pretty bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s card I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes bundle and while I don’t like dandelions in my yard, I am so ready for spring that if I saw one of these yellow flowers in my yard, I would jump for joy! Plus the artwork in these stamps is exquisite! 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 is the pretty sketch we are using:

I started by adhering a pretty panel of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Bumblebee card base. Then I stamped the blooming dandelion image from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes cling stamp set on a Basic White panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

I cut out the flower with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it to a Mossy Meadow mat with liquid glue. I wrapped a length of Mossy Meadow braided trim around it and tied a knot. Then I frayed the ends to make it wider and give it a bit of a messy look.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a small Bumblebee panel. I cut it out with the smallest long Stitched Rectangle die by using the two step method (I partially cut one end of the label with the die, moved the die and partially cut the other end) and adhered it to the panel with glue dots. I adhered a ladybug trinket to the label with a glue dot and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the dandelion from the Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the side of a Basic White panel and colored it with Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the dandelion seeds in Memento Tuxedo Black after stamping off twice and stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow. I cut out a little bumblebee from another panel of Dandy Garden DSP with the coordinating die from the Dandy Wishes dies and adhered it to the top corner. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Garden Wishes stamp set has beautiful dandelion images and sweet sentiments. The Dandy Wishes dies has dies that coordinate with the images and other dies that you can make dandelions from colored card stock – I need to play with these next. So pick a dandelion, make a wish and blow!

Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I have another sneak peek of the beautiful new Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery bundle that is coming in the new January – June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5. I paired the bundle with the pretty Fine Art Floral designer series paper, also coming on January 5, and the Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp set. You can find the currently available 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 is the cute sketch we are using for our projects:

I embossed a panel of Gray Granite cardstock with the new Painted Texture 3D embossing folder, available January 5, and adhered it to the front of a Gray Granite card base. I cut two panels of the Gray Granite floral paper from the Fine Art Floral designer series paper and cut them with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die – note that the top layer is cut from the back side. On the back side, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery and Beautiful Friendship photopolymer stamp sets in Blushing Bride, Terracotta Tile, Bumblebee and Shaded Spruce ink along the bottom.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery stamp set in Blushing Bride and Terracotta Tile on a Thick Whisper White panel and the leaves and stem in Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White. I adhered the stem on the stamped panel with liquid glue and popped the flower on with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery stamp set in Terracotta Tile ink on So Saffron and cut it out with the small label die from the Floral Gallery dies.

I adhered the panels on the card front with liquid glue and adhered the label with dimensionals and a glue dot over the flowers. I tied a bow with the Fine Art ribbon, available January 5, and adhered it to the stem with a glue dot. I finished the card front with three gold glitter enamel dots.

I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery and Beautiful Friendship stamp sets in Blushing Bride, Bumblebee, Terracotta Tile and Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White Panel. I adhered the panel to a So Saffron mat and the to the inside of the card.

The flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Art Gallery Stamp set are so dramatic and go pretty well with the flowers from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. The two step stamping really lets you be creative and create beautiful flowers, and it’s really nice to have coordinating dies to cut them out. Check out the stamp set in the picture below – see all the different sentiments!

Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime Best Wishes Card

Good Morning! Today I have a pretty card for a very special person made with the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime cling stamp set, the Lasting Elegance Dies and the Magic In This Night designer series paper. The Magic In This Night paper is for Halloween, but it has some gorgeous floral images, so I thought I would pair it with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Last a Lifetime stamp set for a Wedding or Birthday card for that Halloween lover celebrating in the fall. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Magic In This Night designer series paper to the front of a Basic Black card base. I cut a strip of Basic Black with the fancy border die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered it to the bottom of the black background paper from the Magic In This Night designer series paper. I cut the end with the Triple Banner punch and adhered it to the card front.

I cut a Cajun Craze panel with the large die from the Lasting Elegance Dies and adhered it to a Basic Black scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I finished the card front with a black glitter ribbon bow and three iridescent pearls.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Last A Lifetime stamp set in Basic Black on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the flower in Cajun Craze after stamping off once. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of Magic In This Night designer series paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So this is a different card, and not for everyone, but there are so many Halloween lovers out there, that you must know someone who would love to receive a goth card for a special birthday or wedding.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Autumn Wishes Card

Happy September! I hope you are having a wonderful, relaxing Labor Day Weekend. Today’s card welcomes the Fall season with warm wishes. It is made with the new Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set that is in the new 2019 Holiday Catalog and will be available on Sept 4! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The inspiration for the layout of the card is CAS(E) this Sketch #337. It’s a great layout for using different DSPs in combination with stamped images. Check it out!

For today’s card, I wanted to show off some of the pretty fall designs in the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper that is in the new 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. So I started by cutting the polka dot paper and mounting it on an Early Espresso mat. I Added the Pretty Peacock feather strip and set it aside to work on the die cuts.

For the large maple leaf, I sponged a Whisper White panel with Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand inks so that the leaf would have a mottled look like it was starting to turn color. I then stamped the large leaf image from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Early Espresso and cut it out with the coordinating Gathered Leaves die. Then I took a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and lightly misted it and cut it out with the large three lobed maple leaf leaf die. I did the same to a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock and cut it with the small 5 lobed maple leaf die. The solid dies in the Gathered Leaves dies makes a two toned die cut when the paper is wet. It’s pretty neat isn’t it!

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock. I stamped the wheat sheaf in Early Espresso after stamping off twice. I cut it out with one of the circle dies from the Layering Circles dies and backed it with Pretty Peacock cut in one of the scalloped circles from the Layering Circles dies. I added two small Pretty Peacock faceted gems to the label. I arranged the leaves on the DSP background panel and attached them with glue dots and added the label with dimensionals. I finished it off with a bow made with the braided linen trim. I adhered the panel to the front of a Sahara Sand card base with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the polka dot paper from the Come to Gather DSP to the left side of a Whisper White panel and stamped the wheat from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together stamp set in Early Espresso in the center of the panel after stamping off twice. I adhered it to an Early Espresso mat and attached it to the inside of the card.

Are you ready for Fall? School has started for the children in my neighborhood and some of the leaves on the trees have started turning. So it’s here whether I’m ready or not. The Gathered Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies will be available as a bundle in the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog for a 10% discount. And it will be available on September 4th – just two days away! Yay!! I hope you liked today’s card. Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

First Frost Best Wishes Card

Hello and Happy Friday! Today’s card is a simple white on white card with the beautiful floral images from the First Frost stamp and die set. The best wishes theme can used to celebrate many different special occasions.

I started by embossing the smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Subtle embossing folder and then adhered it to one of the larger pieces. I then took a piece of satin Whisper White ribbon from my stash and used snail adhesive to attach and wrap it around the embossed panel. I adhered the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base using dimensionals.

I took the smaller piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock and using one of the stitched rectangles die, I die cut a panel for the flower and sentiment. The piece that I needed was longer than the die, so I carefully placed the die on one end of my paper and then cut about 2/3 the way through. Then I moved the die to the other end and was careful to align the stitches and die cut about half way through from the opposite direction. This resulted in a longer stitched rectangle. It took me a couple of times practicing on scrap paper to figure out how many times to turn the crank so that I cut enough, but didn’t cut the end.

I stamped the leaves and sentiment using Mossy Meadow on the die cut rectangle. I stamped the beautiful large rose image in Flirty Flamingo and cut it out with the matching die. I popped the rose on the stitched rectangle panel with dimensionals.

I popped the stitched rectangle on the embossed background using dimensionals again, then took another piece of the satin Whisper White ribbon to tie a bow and attached it next to the panel using a glue dot.

I used the clear Wink of Stella on the rose to add some shimmer and finished it off with a trio of faux pearls.

On the inside of the card, I took the leafy stem stamp and inked it in Mossy Meadow and after stamping off twice, I stamped it along the left side of the inside panel. I took another Flirty Flamingo rose and adhered it to the inside panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Luckily, the First Frost set will be returning in the new catalog. The white on white makes for a very elegant card, while the different textures and layers keep it interesting. And the clear Wink of Stella is perfect for adding a touch of sparkle to any flower. Thanks for visiting today!
