Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the Stampin’ Up Curvy Christmas stamp set that will be available as part of the Curvy Celebrations promotion starting on November 3. This will include the Quite Curvy bundle, which is an early release of the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog along with the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas stamp set and Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. So here is my card:

Here is the Facebook Live video giving more details on these products and showing how I made the card:

I will post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

Cut a panel of Shaded Spruce Card stock with the fancy curved die from the Curvy Dies that will be available November 3 and emboss it with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. Adhere it to a panel of Classic Christmas 6″ x 6″ designer series paper (available November 3). Adhere the panel to a Whisper White mat and pop it on the front of a Shaded Spruce Card base with dimensionals.

Cut a Whisper White label with the Timeless Label Punch and stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas photopolymer stamp set (available November 3) in the lower corner in Cherry Cobbler ink. Adhere the label to the card front. Cut out two Cherry Cobbler flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies and adhere them together. Cut out three sprigs from the Curvy Dies (available November 3) from Whisper White card stock and adhere them to the back of the flower. Adhere the flower to the card front.

Make a bow with Whisper White crinkle ribbon and adhere it to the corner with a glue dot. Trim the flower center with yellow Holiday Rhinestones and the border with Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestones.

Stamp the curvy sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Curvy Christmas stamp set (available November 3) in Cherry Cobbler ink on a Whisper White panel. Stamp the pine branch under the sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink and adhere a strip of Classic Christmas designer series paper (available November 3) to the bottom. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Ombre Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another beautiful card made with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Instead of using the wonderful dies, I just used the gorgeous large sunflower stamp and paired it with an ombre technique with some touches of gold. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit the video and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. The edited video has been posted on my YouTube Channel and you can find it here.

I stamped three of the large sunflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Whisper White panel. Using the sponge brayer, I colored the panel starting with Cajun Craze on the bottom and adding in Pumpkin Pie, Bumblebee and So Saffron inks. I colored the darkest colors on the bottom and the lightest color on top, overlapping the colors as I went. I also used the sponge brayer to add So Saffron ink to the Whisper White label. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the label. I adhered the label to the flower panel and adhered the panel to a gold foil mat.

I wrapped gold trim around the panel just above the label, making a bow, and finished the panel with three gold metallic pearls. I adhered the dark woodgrain In Good Taste designer series paper to the front of an early Espresso card base and popped the flower panel on top with dimensionals.

I stamped another sunflower from the Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in Early Espresso ink in the corner of a Whisper White panel. I added some Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Bumblebee ink with the sponge brayer and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The soft touches of gold with the dark wood grain give the card an elegant look, especially when paired with the beautiful sentiment!

Stampin’ Up! Banner Year Happy Haunting Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Halloween card made with the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Last week I made a pair of Fall cards with this bundle and today’s card uses another technique for designing and stamping your own ‘designer series paper’ for a card background. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find the YouTube video here.

I planned a little rectangle of images from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year photopolymer stamp set and the colors that I wanted to use. In order to fill all the spaces, I needed to put a spider in the spider web, so I used in the spider from the Celebration Tidings stamp set. Then I just stamped the pattern in a row. I shifted the pattern and stamped the next row and repeated until I covered the panel. I used Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty Peacock and Memento Tuxedo Black inks on a Whisper White panel.

I trimmed my stamped panel and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I colored a length of white crinkle seam binding ribbon with dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend and wrapped it around the panel, tying a bow. I cut the spider web from Smoky Slate card stock using the Peek A Hoot Dies and adhered it to the panel with a glue dot. I trimmed the ends of my labels with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the label to the mat and popped it on the panel with dimensionals. I finished the panel with three iridescent pearls and popped it on the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the images similar to the card front on a Whisper White panel. I added the Boo sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The cute images in the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set are perfect for stamping all over a sheet of card stock to make your own custom designer series paper for a One Sheet Wonder project for all the upcoming holidays!  The little images are also great for accenting labels or tags that go on other projects.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. This is such a simple card, but is amazing because of the touches of silver foil card stock. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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. Note that in the video, I did a lot of prep work ahead of time to move things along:

I will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can now view it here.

I embossed a panel of Seaside Spray card stock with the Winter Snow embossing folder and adhered it to a silver foil mat. I wrapped a length of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon around the panel about 1″ from the bottom. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Cherish the Season cling stamp set using Versamark ink on a strip of Seaside Spray. I sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with a die from the Ornate Labels Dies.

I cut out the snowflakes from silver foil using the So Many Snowflakes Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle. I cut one of the large snowflakes and two of the small snowflakes. I also cut two of the smallest snowflakes from the Christmas Layers Dies. I placed the label on the ribbon and arranged the silver foil die cut snowflakes on the panel, adhering them with liquid glue. I adhered the label with glue dots and added some rhinestones.

I stamped the sentiment from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Seaside Spray ink and stamped some snowflakes in Seaside Spray ink around a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle is so versatile for creating snowflake cards for Christmas and for the winter with intricate die cuts that make beautiful snowflakes and other die cuts that cut out stamped snowflakes! The hex frame is also perfect for making a shaker card – you can see one that I made a while back here. Click the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. For today’s card, I used felt for the snow! I have wanted to play with felt for a long time and I finally made it happen with this card! You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find it here.

I started by cutting a 1-3/4″ x 5″ panel of while felt from the Festive Felt sheet combo pack with the rolling hillside die from the Home Together Dies. I was really pleased at how easy it was to cut!! I also cut a panel of Whisper White to match and adhered the felt to the front. This gives me a bright white snow bank as my sample card was adhered to the DSP directly and looks a little dingy.

I stamped all my die cuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped 4 houses, three large pine trees, two small pine trees and a wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home photopolymer stamp set. I colored them all with Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I stamped the bare tree and adhered the snowbank to the Trimming the Town DSP and then the DSP to a Whisper White mat. I tucked the small pine tree under the snow bank, stamped the smoke and adhered the large house with dimensionals and liquid glue.

I adhered the two smaller houses together with liquid glue and popped them on the larger house with dimensionals. I added the wreath with dimensionals and the two large pine trees with dimensionals and liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black in on a strip of Whisper White. I trimmed the end with the new Banners Pick a Punch and adhered it to the front with liquid glue. I finished the label with a red rhinestone. I popped the little scene onto the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in real red ink and adhered the last two trees to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle has so many cute elements to make different kinds of houses for holidays as well as to congratulate someone who got a new home or welcome someone who just moved in next door. Click the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.
