Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle is new in the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog that comes out tomorrow! And it’s a great bundle! I made a simple thinking of you card with the bundle, but it’s very versatile and there’s so much more that you can do with it that I’ll be writing about in the future. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I also entered today’s card in the Sunday Stamps SSC247 color challenge.

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 started by adhering a panel of the Forever Greenery designer series paper to the front of a Garden Green card base. I embossed a Soft Sea Foam panel with the Greenery Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front. I used the Potted Succulents Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle to cut the aloe from Mint Macaron and two of the long pearl succulents from Garden Green. I stamped the pot from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents stamp set in Versamark ink on a strip of Garden green and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until shiny and cut the sentiment out with the coordinating pretty stitched label die. I adhered the label to the bottom of the embossed panel with glue dots. I stamped two of the large succulents and three of the smaller ones in Garden Green ink on Whisper White. I used Stampin’ Blends to color the succulents and pot – Mint Macaron and dark Rococo Rose on the large succulent, Granny Apple Green on the small succulent and Cajun Craze and the Color lifter on the Pot. See the video for the blending techniques I used – these are fairly simple blending techniques that are pretty forgiving and give you nice results.

I adhered the pot to the card front with glue dots. I sponged the edges of the aloe with Old Olive ink and adhered it with a glue dot. Next came the pearl succulents and the small succulent that were adhered with glue dots. I adhered the large succulent and the small one at the bottom of the pot with dimensionals. I added three white Elegant faceted Gems to the card front and finished the card with a double wrapped linen thread bow.

For the inside, I adhered a strip of the Forever Greenery designer series paper to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the last two colored succulents to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Simply Succulents bundle is a beautiful set with wonderful images and sweet sentiments. And the dies are fabulous with a die to cut out each image and pretty stitched label dies that fit each sentiment. And I can’t forget the large background die – that is sure to make beautiful cards!

Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Sale A Bration is just around the corner, starting on January 5, 2021 and I have a sneak peek of a fabulous item that you can get. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set and Berry Delightful designer series paper. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and I use both items to make it. You can find the currently available 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 started by embossing a panel of Night of Navy with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and adhering it to a Night of Navy card base. It’s too bad the the additional texture isn’t very visible in the photos, because this embossing folder adds beautiful striations to the front that contrast with the white lacy edge. I adhered a Whisper White panel to the back of the Berry Delightful designer series paper and adhered two strips of Whisper White that were cut with the Ornate Borders lacy die. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the blueberries using stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings photopolymer stamp set on the Thick Whisper White panel. I stamped the leaves first, the outline in Shaded Spruce and the fill in Granny Apple Green. I stamped the blueberries in Night of Navy for the outline and Pacific Point for the filler. It’s fairly easy to position the filler stamps over the darker stamped outline images. I cut the image out with the large Octagon frame from the Hippo and Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I added a Night of Navy bow with glue dots and three rhinestone gems to finish the card front.

I stamped the filler leaves and blueberries from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set in Granny Apple Green and Pacific Point in the corners of a Whisper White panel after stamping off. The soft look without the outline images is a nice contrast and shows the versatility of this pretty stamp set. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set in Night of Navy and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Berry Blessings stamp set comes with the Berry Delightful designer series paper as a Sale A Bration item that is free with the purchase of $100 (before shipping and taxes) beginning on January 5, 2021. Sale A Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotion of the year and runs through the end of February! You can see this pretty stamp set in the picture below with samples of the Berry Delightful DSP – note that the samples are 6″ x 6″ but the real DSP pack comes with 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ double sided designer series paper!

I hope you consider this set as your Sale A Bration free item – I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!

Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air Birthday Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set to make snow capped mountains for a western landscape birthday card. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

I was also inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #466:


I set up the mountain range stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in my Stamparatus and secured Whisper White card stock with both magnets so it wouldn’t move. I stamped the mountains in Sahara Sand ink and then wiped the stamp and inked the top of the mountains with Versamark ink and stamped again. I sprinkled white embossing powder on the Versamark and heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny. I masked the mountains and used the new blending brushes that will be coming in the new Jan-Jun Mini Catalog to color the sky with Balmy Blue and Pacific Point inks. I love how brilliant the Pacific Point makes the sky and contrasts with the snow caps!

I masked off the sky and the embossed mountain tops and used a blending brush again to apply Crumb Cake ink on the rest of the card stock. I stamped the tree line from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in Crumb Cake ink along the bottom of the mountains. I stamped the double tree stamp in Old Olive and the single tree stamp in Mossy Meadow to create the forest in the foreground, stamping off to create depth. I cleaned the tree stamp and then I stamped over the small trees at the bottom of the mountains in Mossy Meadow ink by inking up just the tip of the single tree stamp. Finally, I stamped the little birds in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat.

I trimmed the end of a Sahara Sand strip with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts stamp set in Cajun Craze ink. I adhered two leaves from the In Good Taste elements and a double bow made with linen thread with glue dots to the corner of the panel. I adhered the label over the embellishments with glue dots. I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base and popped the mountain panel on top with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Friend Like You photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze in on a Whisper White panel. I stamped thee double tree from the Stampin’ Up! Mountain Air stamp set in Old Olive ink on the side of the panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ DSP. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The white embossed mountain tops are so dramatic against the blue sky and in life the shine from the embossed lines is pretty. I think that next time I should try this with a crooked line at the bottom of the snow rather than a straight line, what do you think?

Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy bundle along with a sneak peek of the Field & Flower designer series paper. The Field & Flower DSP pack is a Sale A Bration item that you can get for FREE with a $50 order beginning January 5. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the currently available supplies I 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.


I adhered the pretty Flower & Field designer series paper panel to the front of a Basic Black card base with liquid glue. I cut the top of the So Saffron panel with the fancy floral edge die from the Curvy Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy Bundle. Then I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink on the bottom of the panel. I aligned the discarded top edge of the So Saffron panel to the top of the Real Red panel and drew a line and fussy cut the top off and adhered it to the back of the So Saffron panel so you would see the red though the die cut edge.

I used the discarded edge again to line up the dotted edge die on the Granny Apple Green panel and cut it out and adhered the panel to the back of the So Saffron panel. I wrapped a length of Real Red braided linen trim around the panel and tied a bow. I adhered the layered die cut panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped two birds from the Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the corresponding dies. I colored them with the Crumb Cake and Real Red Stampin Blends and popped them on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a rhinestone gem.

I stamped the flower and stem from the Field of Flowers photopolymer stamp set in Real Red and Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Flower & Field DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Quite Curvy bundle is an early release of the January – June 2021 Mini Catalog that is available now! And if you purchase this bundle from me this month, you’ll get a bonus tutorial with 5 Curvy Celebrations projects (details below).

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today’s card is a holiday themed Thank You card using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle and the Poinsettia Place designer series paper. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the cute Sketch Challenge in Freshly Made Sketches #464.

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 cut a poinsettia flower from the floral Poinsettia Place designer series paper with the outline poinsettia die from the Poinsettia Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals designer series paper. I used the same die to cut a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the back of the DSP flower so that the flower would be a little stiffer. I also fussy cut the center of another poinsettia and adhered it to the center with dimensionals.

I cut a panel of fancy green paper from the Poinsettia Place DSP with the stitched square from the Stitched Shapes Dies and adhered it to a Woodgrain panel of the Poinsettia Place DSP. I adhered it all to a Soft Suede mat. I popped the poinsettia on with dimensionals and tucked a Linen Thread bow under the flower.

I used the Banners Pick A Punch to cut the end of a Whisper White strip and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Place photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink near the end. I trimmed the other end of the label and adhered it to the panel with a length of Real Red ribbon underneath. I popped the panel on a Real Red card base with dimensionals and accented the front with three red Wonderful Gems.

I adhered a strip of wood grain paper to a Whisper White panel and fussy cut another poinsettia from the Poinsettia Place DSP and adhered it to the corner. I trimmed the petals to be even with the Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set are really nice! The Thank You sentiment is perfect for expressing appreciation for that extra special gift or for sending a quick note after a fun holiday visit or outing. Have a great week!!

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


I adhered the plaid ‘Tis The Season designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base. I used the Banner Triple punch on the bottom of the Garden Green strip to create the fishtail and adhered the strip to the card with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and stamped the owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped another set of owls on a smaller Crumb Cake panel and cut them out with the coordinating die.

I colored the branch, leaves and mistletoe on the large panel with the Early Espresso and Garden Green watercolor pencils. I colored the wings and sides of the die cut owls with Early Espresso and used the blender pen to smooth out the coloring. I colored the bellies with Whisper White and the beaks and feet with the daffodil delight. I popped the die cut owls on the main panel with dimensionals. I love how the images are drawn so you can die cut the owls and get a clean edge – no branch lines on the feet!

I cut two mistletoe branches from the Peek A Hoot dies from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle from Garden Green and adhered them on the top of the panel. I cut a Cherry Cobbler border using the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony dies and adhered them to the back of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Versamark ink on Real Red. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die using the two step die cutting method so that it is shorter and fits the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the panel with liquid glue and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a braided linen knot and three white resin dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I die cut another set of Garden Green mistletoe and adhered them to the top corner. I cut some Whisper White dots using the North Pole Wonder dies and adhered them with liquid glue. I trimmed the bottom with the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I CASE’d this sweet card from the Aug 2020 Mini Catalog, because when I saw it, I knew that I needed to make it for my dear hubby. The owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle are just too cute! Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Winter Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and I also used the Winter Snow 3D embossing folder and the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper to make sure I had enough snowflakes. Today’s card was inspired by a set of cards I saw on Pinterest made by Australian Demonstrator Gail Ellis. You can find the supplies I 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer. Later this week I hope to get a quickie version posted to my channel too.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Winter Snow embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Whisper White note card. I adhered the Snowflake Splendor DSP panels to the Balmy Blue mats and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I could not believe that when I was Live, I put my liquid glue on the wrong side of the designer series paper!! So I had to change things up a bit and stamped in Pacific Point instead of Balmy Blue. The color is a little more intense, but everything still goes together beautifully!

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set to a Whisper White panel in Pacific Point ink and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some Snowflake Splendor ribbon to the back and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I cut two small snowflakes and a medium snowflake from Balmy Blue glimmer paper with the So Many Snowflakes dies from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle and adhered them to the card front. I finished the card with a blue gem.

I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set in Pacific Point ink after stamping off in the corners of the inside of the card. I also stamped the outside of the envelope with Pacific Point snowflakes to match.

The Whisper White note cards and envelopes are perfect for a quick little thank you note – they are nice and thick, and don’t need an inside panel. Layered panel card designs like this one are a good use for those little scraps of pretty DSP that you can’t bear to throw out. And sending a quick thank you after Christmas is a nice way to reach out and let the joy of the season linger a little longer.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thanksgiving Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing my final Thanksgiving card for this year – I’ll be sending them out to my family this week and moving on to finishing up Christmas cards. Kind of sad because I really love the fall season. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and it is full of pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies. And I filled it out with an Autumn version of the new Quite Curvy leaves! 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer. Later this week I hope to get a quickie version posted to my channel too.

I started by stamping the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White. I stamped three large pumpkins and two of the smaller sets of pumpkins and colored them with Pumpkin Pie and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut them out. I cut two large leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies from Old Olive card stock.

I stamped the large leafy vine from the Quite Curvy photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I colored the leaves with Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Cinnamon Cider and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Cajun Craze mat and adhered it to the front of a Bumblebee card base. I adhered the die cut leaves to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the pumpkins across the bottom. I used liquid glue on all except the center pumpkin, which I popped on with a dimensional.

I adhered the Quite Curvy leafy vine with dimensionals on the bottom of the arrangement. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Bumblebee panel. I cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies and stamped the wheat sheafs in Bumblebee ink. I adhered the label to the front of the card with dimensionals and finished of the card front with three Bumblebee enamel gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the wheat sheaf from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Bumblebee ink next to the sentiment and stamped the leafy vine in Soft Suede ink on the bottom. I colored the leaves with dimensionals like the card front and adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Bundle and was so happy to see it return in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. And I love the fall version of the Quite Curvy leafy vine!! Thanks for stopping by and Have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Floral Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Christmas card – a floral card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. So you might think that the Dove of Hope cling stamp set isn’t a floral stamp set, but look closely and you will spot the doves. 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 post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

I started by randomly stamping the doves from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a crumb cake panel and adhered it to a Real Red mat. This gives me a textured background for my flowers like you would get if you embossed it or used designer series paper. I die cut the petals from the Magnolia Memory Dies using Whisper White card stock, I cut two of each petal cluster giving me six total. I gently curled the petals up with my fingers and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I cut two small centers from the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered them together. I bent the stamens up and adhered it to the center of the Whisper White flower. I cut two large flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies from Real Red card stock and three large leaves from the Magnolia Memory Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. I cut a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink in the lower left corner. I adhered a Mossy Meadow die cut leaf sprig from the Detailed Dove Dies to the label.

I popped the label to the stamped panel with dimensionals. I adhered the leaves and Real Red flowers with liquid glue and popped the large Magnolia Memory Dies Whisper White flower on with dimensionals. I made a bow with Real Red braided twine and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the flowers with resin dots. I popped the finished panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped a dove in the upper corner and adhered a die cut sprig under the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love rustic Christmas cards with Crumb Cake card card stock! They have such a natural homespun feel. And I love floral Christmas cards because they’re different, but express the joy of the holiday. And I’m so glad to be able to use the pretty flower from the Magnolia Memory Dies! Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a clean and simple card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle accented with leaves and acorns punched from the beautiful Gilded Autumn specialty 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.

Here is the Facebook Live video 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.

Emboss a Very Vanilla panel with the Pinewoods Plank embossing folder and adhere it to a Very Vanilla mat with liquid glue. Pop it on the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals. Punch out Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron leaves and Crumb Cake acorns from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper with the Autumn Punch pack from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle.

With the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, cut out the fancy layered labels, the large one from the speckled Crumb Cake paper in the Gilded Autumn paper pack and the smaller one from Very Vanilla card stock, Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the Very Vanilla label and adhere it to the DSP label. Pop the labels on the card front with dimensionals.

Adhere the punched leaves on the label with liquid glue and adhere the acorn with a dimensional. Make a bow with the Very Vanilla ribbon and adhere it with a glue dot. Finish the card front with three champaign rhinestones on the label.

Adhere leaves and an acorn to a Very Vanilla panel with liquid glue. Adhere a strip of the Crumb Cake paper from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper to the bottom of the panel and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle is so versatile and it has great sentiments. The leaves and acorn could have easily been stamped in any color palette and then punched – but it’s nice to have beautiful DSP that can be die cut or punched like I did here. And the images in this stamp set are so beautiful in a clean and simple card with a textured Whisper White or Very Vanilla background. And the bonus is that they can be made fairly quickly with stunning results.
