Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Video Tutorial

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Yesterday afternoon during my weekly Facebook Live, I made a Christmas card with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Poinsettia dies. I combined them with the beautiful Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper from the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog for a non traditional color palette Christmas card. 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.

My card was inspired by the sketch challenge at Inspire Create Challenge #095. Here’s the pretty sketch:

I cut the three graduated poinsettia clusters from Blushing Bride card stock with the outline and the detailed embossing dies. I cut one of each of the Poinsettia Leaves from Mossy Meadow card stock with the outline dies and the detailed embossing dies. I cut the embossed solid flower center from Bumblebee and the detailed flower center from Silver foil. Before cutting the foil die cut, I applied some adhesive sheet to the back.

I gently folded the poinsettia petals backward with my fingers and adhered the petal clusters together with glue dots, ensuring the petals fell between the petals on the layer below. I peeled the adhesive sheet backing off the silver foil center and adhered the flower centers (I had trouble in the video, but this worked well on my sample card. LOL). I adhered the center to the poinsettia with glue dots. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on Mint Macaron. I trimmed the end with the Banners Pick A Punch.

I adhered the Whimsy and Wonder designer series paper panels to Mossy Meadow mats and adhered them to the front of a Mint Macaron card base with liquid glue. I adhered the Poinsettia to the card front with glue dots and adhered the label with glue dots by tucking it under the flower petals. I adhered the leaves with glue dots and tucked them under the petals too. I made a loopy bow with silver trim and adhered it with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the top corner of a Basic White panel with the poinsettia flower from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Blushing Bride. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow and added a strip of the pretty Whimsy and Wonder DSP to the side. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and adhered the layered panel to the inside of the card.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set and the Poinsettia dies and the pink flower looks so pretty with the beautiful Whimsy and Wonder specialty designer series paper. This gorgeous paper has holographic silver touches throughout and is so elegant! It will be available when the new July – December 2021 Mini Catalog launches on May 3!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Sneak Peek Christmas Card

Good Morning! Last Sunday I shared a sneak peek of the cute Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle from the upcoming Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. Today I am sharing another Christmas card made with the set, and sharing a sneak peek of the cute Penguin Playmates designer series paper that will be available during Sale A Bration Part 2 that runs August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Today’s card is a whimsical fun fold card with a mini card on top of a regular A2 half card base. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates designer series paper (available August 3, 2021) to a Misty Moonlight card base panel. I folded the mini card at the score line and adhered it to the card base panel with Tear & Tape for a strong hold. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) on the front of the mini card.

I cut the large fancy die from the Hippo and Friends die from the Fresh Freesia snowflake Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and the medium die from the dotted paper. I adhered these together with liquid glue and adhered them to the right side of the mini card. I stamped three trees from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place photopolymer stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Just Jade on Basic white and adhered them to the die cut panel. I fussy cut the polar bear, fox and penguin from the Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and adhered them with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Versamark ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut it out with the Messages die and adhered it to the mini card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three clear elegant gems and a Fresh Freesia bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Fresh Freesia ink on a Basic White mini panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Misty Moonlight ink and the tree in Just Jade. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and adhered the panel to the inside of the mini card.

The Penguin Playmates designer series paper that will be available for Sale A Bration is so cute and compliments the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle so well! I can’t wait for August 3 when the new catalog is available and Sale A Bration starts!

Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings Christmas Card

Happy Friday! Here’s another simple Christmas Card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings bundle from the July-December 2021 Annual Catalog. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of adhesive sheet to the back of the gold foil panel and cut the large detailed star from the Christmas Trimmings dies. I cut the large star from Misty Moonlight and peeled off the backing from the adhesive sheet to adhere the foil star to the Misty Moonlight star. I cut the leaf cluster from Soft Succulent and the berry cluster from gold foil.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings stamp set in Versamark ink on the side of a Real Red panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut the label out with the largest long Stitched Rectangles die. I adhered the panel to the back of the Misty Moonlight star with glue dots.

I adhered a panel of the Christmas Tidings designer series paper to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue and popped the label and star on top with dimensionals. I adhered the leaf and berry clusters with mini glue dots and finished the front off with three red Wonderful Gems (available August 3).


For the inside of the card, I stamped the leafy stars from the Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings photopolymer stamp set in Real red on a Basic White panel and stamped the sentiment in Soft Succulent. I adhered a strip of the Evening Evergreen DSP to the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Tidings and Trimmings bundle is a versatile set with stars and stockings with the Christmas foliage theme. The sentiments are wonderful and the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper is really beautiful. These products are perfect for simple handmade Christmas Cards.

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card

Good Morning! Do you realize that Christmas is 6 months away? It always arrives before I’m ready, so I need to start early with Christmas cards! Here is my first Christmas card for the year made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set and fabulous Poinsettia dies. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used a Blending Brush to apply Soft Succulent ink to a Basic White panel. I randomly stamped the berry sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede ink on the panel. I stamped the berries in Real Red ink and then embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I adhered the panel to the right side of the front of a Soft Succulent card base. I cut the strip of striped Pansy Petals designer series paper with the Scalloped Contours die and adhered it to the right side of the card.

I one each of the three largest Poinsettia dies from Real Red card stock with the embossing insert and gently curved the petals with my fingers. I adhered the petal clusters together with liquid glue, alternating the petals so they fell between the petals in the layer below. I cut one each of the leaf dies from Soft Succulent card stock with the embossing insert. I adhered the flower and leaves to the card front with glue dots. I added three gold glitter enamel dots to the center of the flower.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark ink on Evening Evergreen. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set the powder until it was shiny. I cut the sentiment with the Tailor Made Tags die. I adhered a Real Red bow to the end of the tag and slipped it under the flower.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the pine sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Evening Evergreen on the bottom and top corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry sprig in Soft Suede ink in the lower corner and stamped the berries in Real Red. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I’m so glad that the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set and dies were carries over from last year’s Holiday Catalog because these are the most beautiful poinsettias ever! And don’t the Real Red flowers look great with the new In Color greens – Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent? One last tip – they also go beautiful with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper (item 153486) in the Clearance Rack!

I’m so glad to start my Christmas cards for this year. The 2021-2022 Annual Catalog has favorite holiday stamp sets as well as some new bundles so you can get started right now!

Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath Partridge Christmas Card

Good Friday Morning! I have a Christmas card to share today made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath bundle. This is one of my favorite bundles and I finally used it with the cute little partridge and pears for a Christmas card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Soft Sea Foam with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I cut two of the leaf wreaths using the Wreath Builder Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath bundle from Old Olive and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sign post from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath photopolymer stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment on top of it in Mossy Meadow and trimmed it with my paper snips. I popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped two sets of pears from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink (what else?) and then used my sponge daubers to add a little Calypso Coral to the bottom and stamped them again. I stamped the partridge in Cinnamon Cider ink and then cut the bird and pears out with the coordinating dies. I cut out four little berry sprigs from gold foil and arranged them on the bottom of the wreath. I adhered the gold foil sprigs with liquid glue, the pears with glue dots and popped the partridge on with dimensionals.

I made a bow with Whisper White crinkle ribbon and adhered it with a glue dot and added some pearls around the wreath. I adhered the panel to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Peaceful Boughs stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a Whisper White panel. I stamped another partridge from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink and cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped some leaves in Old Olive ink in the corner and adhered the last pear and the partridge on top. I adhered the panel to an Old Olive mat and then to the inside of the card.

Another Christmas card done and it’s a sweet one made with the Stampin’ Up! Arrange A Wreath bundle. Are you done with your Christmas cards? I think I’ve got just a few more to do, and next week I need to start mailing them out! Christmas will be here before you know it. Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Festive Post Christmas Card II

Good Morning! I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving! After I recovered from my turkey coma (or was my coma from all the cooking and cleaning?), I realized that I did not have a card finished for today’s post and so I wondered ‘What can I make real fast that is still nice?’ and I went looking for inspiration on Pinterest. And I found a sweet card by Brian King that did a great job of showing off pretty designer series papers and that’s my inspiration for today’s card because Stampin’ Up! has so many beautiful holiday designer series papers. And the funny thing is that I ended up using the Flowers for Every Season designer series paper from the Annual Catalog and it was a perfect excuse to pull out that cute little reindeer from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post photopolymer 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 adhered the greenery paper from the Flowers For Every Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat and popped it to the front of a Just Jade card base. I adhered the poinsettia paper from the Flowers For Every Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Poppy Parade mat and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the cute reindeer from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set in Cinnamon Cider on a small Whisper White panel and stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade ink. I cut it out with a die from the Layering Circles dies. I used the scalloped circle die from the Little Treat Boxes dies to cut a Poppy Parade panel to adhere behind the deer.

I folded a length of Real Red metallic ribbon and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Seal and popped the label on top with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three gold glitter enamel dots.

I stamped the little reindeer and sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set in Cinnamon Cider and Poppy Parade ink on a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of the Poinsettia DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I am happy to say that this was a quick card to make, but it’s really cute because it basically shows off the pretty designer series paper. And Stampin’ Up! does a great job of coordinating the colors that it makes your job even easier. You know to use Just Jade, Poppy Parade and Cinnamon Cider card stock and inks because those are the colors in the DSP. Sometimes, you can break this rule, like using the Real Red ribbon because the gold makes it look ok with Poppy Parade. So Yay! I was able to make a pretty card to share today. I hope you like it.

Stampin’ Up! Festive Post Christmas Card

Good Morning! I have another Christmas card today, a rustic and simple card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Festive Post photopolymer 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 stamped little reindeer from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Crumb Cake panel. I stamped the little postmark in Real Red and the little stars in Whisper White Craft ink. I punched it out with the new Rectangular Postage Stamp punch that coordinates perfectly with the images in this set – and is on sale today only!! Yay!!

I cut a panel of green Poinsettia Place designer series paper with the tag die from the North Pole Wonder Dies. I wrapped a Real Red Stitched Ribbon through the hole and tied it with a length of Linen thread, making a bow. I adhered the punched deer with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set in Real Red on a Whisper White strip and trimmed the end with the Banner Pick a punch. I adhered it to the tag with liquid glue.

I adhered four strips of pinecone Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of a Garden Green card base. I cut a panel of Soft Sea Foam with a Stitched Rectangle die and embossed it with the Wrapped In Texture embossing folder. I adhered it to the card front and adhered the label on top with liquid glue. I finished the label with a red rhinestone.

I stamped the deer from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set in Soft Suede ink in the bottom corner of a Whisper White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of green Poinsettia Place DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I just love this happy little reindeer from the Stampin’ Up! Festive Post stamp set! And the stamp set has great holiday images that coordinate with that new Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch – I can’t wait to use the Valentine’s Day image! Of course the punch comes bundled with the pretty Posted for You cling stamp set and is on sale today too!

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly Christmas Card II

Good Morning! Today am sharing another Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly photopolymer stamp set. Earlier this week I used the stamp set to make another Christmas card – you can check it out here – that has a different look, showing the versatility of this beautiful 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 stamped the outline holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the corresponding solid leaves stamps in Just Jade to fill in the leaves and the berries in Cherry Cobbler ink. I adhered the panel to a Gold foil mat with liquid glue and then popped it on the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in versamark ink on a Cherry Cobbler panel. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I tied a loopy bow with gold trim and adhered it to the back with a glue dot. I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and finished it with three gilded gems.

I stamped corners of a Whisper White panel with one of the holly branches from the Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce, Just Jade and Cherry Cobbler ink like the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas cling stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This card was simpler to make than the previous Stampin’ Up! Joyful Holly card, and I think it’s just as beautiful. With this design you can appreciate how elegant and graceful the holly branches are. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
