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! Floating and Fluttering for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a sneak peek of the new Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. This is a pretty new butterfly bundle that I used to make an easy floating frame type of card, well just the inside part. Take a close look at the pictures and you’ll see that the butterflies are floating above the black patterned DSP with dimensionals. 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 pretty sketch we are using for our projects:

I embossed a panel of So Saffron card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a So Saffron card base. I cut a panel of the the new True Love designer series paper (available January 5, 2021) from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog with the Stitched Rectangles Die.

I stamped two of the butterflies stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends – Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I cut them out with the coordinating dies and laid them together and cut out the outline with the same Stitched Rectangle die that I used to cut out the True Love DSP.

I adhered the butterfly die cuts to the DSP with dimensionals – this gives them the appearance of floating above the DSP. I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic Black panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels dies. I adhered it to the card with glue dots and finished the card with three pearl gemstones.

I stamped the butterfly and leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the individual coordinating dies. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the leaf sprig and butterfly on top. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

The new Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering stamp set is a two step set with the big stamp with the outline images and lots of solid image stamps so you can use different colors on each butterfly and leaf sprig. The Fluttering Dies that come in the bundle has dies to cut out the butterfly grouping and dies to cut out each butterfly and leaf sprig individually (like I did for the inside of this card) – it’s so different! There is also a frame stamp and die and the pretty embossed butterfly die. You can see them all in the picture below and they will be available on January 5, 2021 when the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog launches!

Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden Sneak Peek

Good Afternoon! Today I have another card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden cling stamp set. The new Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper is what really makes this card special though as I’ve used four different patterns from this pretty DSP pack to make this pretty card. 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. The Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set and the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ designer series paper will be available in the upcoming January – June 2021 Mini Catalog on January 5!

I adhered a panel of the Bumblebee striped Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front of a Bumblebee card base with liquid glue. I adhered a strip of the Mossy Meadow leafy paper across the panel and wrapped it with a length of Mossy Meadow braided trim (available Jan 5) and tied a knot.

I cut a Bumblebee panel with the Stitched So Sweetly Die and adhered a panel of the small dandelion and dragonfly paper from the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP to the front. I cut a bumblebee from the bumblebee paper in the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ DSP pack with the die from the Dandy Wishes Dies (available Jan 5) and popped it on the panel with a dimensional. I popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Versamark ink on Blackberry Bliss and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die using the two step die cutting method. I adhered the label on the card front and frayed the ribbon ends. I finished the card front with three adhesive sequins.

I stamped the dragonflies from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set in Blackberry Bliss on a Whisper White panel. I added a strip of the Bumblebee striped paper to the side and adhered it to the inside of the card

The sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Dragonfly Garden stamp set are really sweet and the dragonflies are wonderful. The Dandy Garden designer series paper is really pretty and so colorful – perfect for a dreary winter day! They will both be available when the new catalog goes live on January 5, 2021!

Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today am sharing a sneak peek of a new stamp set that will be part of the Sale A Bration sale that starts next month on January 5. It’s the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart cling stamp set and it is one of the options that is FREE with a $50 purchase (before taxes and shipping). 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.

I stamped some of the leaves from the Touched My Heart cling stamp set in Pool Party on a panel of the pretty Snowflake Splendor designer series paper after stamping off. This gives is a very subtle flowing image that blends nicely with the watercolor look on the DSP. The Touched My Heart stamp set is a Host set and can be purchased only with host dollars that you receive when you have a workshop or place an order over $150. I adhered the panel to a Whisper White mat and popped it on the front of a Pool Party card base.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the second largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped the single leaf from the Touched my heart in Pool Party ink next to the sentiment.

I folded a length of sheer Pool Party Ribbon and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ seal and popped the circle on with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set in Smoky Slate ink on a Whisper White panel and stamped the branch from Touched My Heart underneath in stamped off Pool Party. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of the Snowflake Splendor DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The font in the Stampin’ Up! Heal Your Heart stamp set are so beautiful and gentle. It’s so exciting that Sale A Bration is just around the corner. And did you hear that Sale A Bration is going to be different next year? Stampin’ Up! is going to have TWO Sale A Brations next year one in January & February and another in July & August!
