Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow Card

Good Morning! I have a fun little masculine card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow bundle along with the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack. The ephemera pack has some awesome printed cut out images, labels and other card elements that go with the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set and Blackberry Beauty specialty designer series paper. They’re beautiful and great for fast and easy card making. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a panel of Early Espresso card stock with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of an Early Espresso card base. I popped out the Cinnamon Cider and Gold foil frame from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow cling stamp set in Versamark ink on Cinnamon Cider and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated it with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the long label die from the Seasonal Labels dies. I folded a length of a length of Fine Arts ribbon securing it with a glue dot and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I popped the die cut sentiment over the ribbon with dimensionals and finished it with a gold brushed metallic dot.

I die cut some oak leaves from the Beautiful Leaves dies in the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow bundle from Cinnamon Cider and gold foil and adhered one of each under the label and ribbon. I popped out and adhered the large oak leaf cluster from the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack to the card front with dimensionals.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered some of the die cut oak leaves to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love these sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set! What a unique way to tell someone that they are special and that you like and care about them! And I think that the Bark 3D embossing folder and oak leaves make this a great masculine card, even with some shiny gold.

Join me for a Facebook Live This Afternoon!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET today. I will be using this bundle and the Blackberry Beauty Ephemera pack to make another quick and easy card! Look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance Cards

Good Morning! Today I want to share a couple of Christmas Cards made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance bundle. These cards made by the Stampin’ Up! Design Team are quick and easy and use different card making techniques and show how you can use both the cling stamp set and the pretty Evergreen Border punch.

Aren’t they pretty!! Both cards use the same festive color palette of Poppy Parade, Pool Party and Granny Apple Green. The Stampin’ Up! design team put together a quick video showing how to make these cards. They also created a PDF with step by step instructions, card stock cuts and a list of supplies – Click Here to download the PDF.


Here is a close up of the first card – I love layered punched trees! They contrast so nicely with the realistic stamped trees on the Poppy Parade card base.

And here’s the second card. The Poppy Parade label is so striking with the white embossed letters and I love the casual wonkiness of the layers.

These cards are great for the casual crafter – you have two very different designs that are both quick and easy that can be with the same bundle. These designs are easily stepped up with additional ribbons, jewels, embossing folders or other embellishments to make a fancier card if you have time and creative juices.

Here are close ups of the stamps and dies. Click on the pictures to get the full descriptions and to shop in my Online Store.

Thanks for stopping by! With the beautiful and versatile Christmas trees and wonderful sentiments, the Stampin’ Up! Evergreen Elegance is a must have for this Holiday season.


Join me for a Facebook Live this afternoon!

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET today. I will be using the Pretty Pumpkin bundle to make a fall card! Look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Hello Friendship Card

Happy Friday! The Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer is one of my favorite floral stamp sets from the Annual Catalog with it’s pretty floral images and sweet sentiments. So I was thrilled that Stampin’ Up! came out with the coordinating Summer Shadows dies for Sale A Bration! Today I use both of these items for a pretty Black and White friendship card. 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 the striped Beautifully Penned designer series paper to a panel of the floral DSP and then adhered them both to a Basic White mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Basic Black card base.

I cut the third largest scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies from Basic White card stock. I embossed another Basic White panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the scalloped rectangle die cut and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I cut a panel of Basic Black with the detail flowers and leaf cluster from the Summer Shadows dies and adhered the small flower and leaf cluster to the embossed panel with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White and cut it out with the scalloped oval in the Messages die. I popped the label on with dimensionals and popped the large die cut flower on top using pieces of black dimensionals. I finished the card front with matte black dots.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the top of the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment next to the flower and adhered a strip of the floral Beautifully Penned DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer stamp set looks great in black and white and the Summer Shadows dies extends it so nicely with the outline dies that cut out the stamped images and the detailed dies that cut out flowers that coordinate. Have a great weekend!!

Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment Friendship Card

Happy Friday! The Stampin’ Up! Enjoy the Moment is one of the pretty nature themed cling stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. It’s perfect as fall approaches because it’s full of different seed pods like the ones you see outside with the falling leaves. I decided to combine it with the birch trees print from the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper for a simple friendship card. 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 the Peaceful Prints birch trees paper to a Soft suede mat and wrapped it with linen thread and tied a knot to the side. I adhered the panel to the front of a Soft Suede card base with dimensionals.

I stamped a Basic White panel with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Soft Suede ink. I stamped the sycamore pods next to the sentiment, also in Soft Suede ink.

I cut the panel with the third smallest Stitched Rectangles die and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals over the linen thread and adhered a little bumblebee trinket to the panel with a glue dot.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the sycamore pods from the Stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Soft Suede ink in the upper corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Peaceful Prints birch trees DSP to a Soft Suede mat and adhered it to the side of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The stampin’ Up! Enjoy The Moment stamp set has pretty natural images and wonderful sentiments. The Peaceful Prints designer series paper is a wonderful Sale A Bration item that is FREE with a $50 order before shipping and taxes. It has lots of pretty holiday prints in addition to the pretty birch trees!

Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs Card

Good Morning! If you’re a purple lover, I have a card for you today! I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle to make today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I was inspired by the bold and beautiful color palette in Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC263 – Beautiful Blooms:

I started by stamping the large image from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on a Basic White panel and coloring the flowers and leaves with Stampin’ Blends. I used Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Just Jade, Shaded Spruce and Highland Heather.

I used the largest Scalloped Contours die to cut a Gorgeous Grape panel and adhered the image on top. I cut the letters from the Layering Hugs dies from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle using more Gorgeous Grape card stock and adhered them to the panel with tiny dots of liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs stamp set in Real Red ink on Basic White and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals. I added a Real Red bow and scattered red rhinestones around the arrangement and popped the panel on the front of a Gorgeous Grape card base.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle in the corner of a Basic White panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it with Just Jade and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I hope you like this card with it’s bold colors. The Stampin’ Up! Sending Hugs bundle has a big, beautiful hugs in the form of a stamped image like my card today or a floral filigree die cut which I’ll use next week. And I think I’ll use a more subtle color palette to show how versatile this beautiful bundle is.

Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias photopolymer stamp set? This is a real pretty stamp set and it’s a Sale A Bration Level 2 item – this means that it is one of the items you can select for FREE with a $100 order before shipping and taxes.

Dahlias are one of my favorite summer flowers and this new Sale A Bration stamp set makes beautiful flowers. So I’m glad I was able to finally pull it out and make today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Today’s card was inspired by the pretty sketch in TGIF Challenges 329 – #TGIFC329:

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with the pretty Stitched Greenery embossing folder and adhering it to the front of a Soft Sea Foam card base.

I stamped the large outline dahlia from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Basic White. I stamped the large fill dahlia stamp with stamped off Polished Pink over the outline image. Isn’t the shading beautiful? I fussy cut the image and covered it with clear Wink of Stella. I stamped three of the outline large leaf clusters in Garden Green ink on Basic White and stamped the fill in stamped off Garden Green. I fussy cut the leaves and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.

I adhered the dahlia flower over the leaves with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set in Garden Green ink on Basic White and cut it out with the die from the Seasonal Labels dies. I adhered the label with dimensionals and glue dots over the bottom of the flower. I finished the flower with a bumblebee trinket applied with a glue dot.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the large outline flower three times in stamped off Polished Pink on the borders of a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Did I say how much I love dahlias? They come in so many sizes and colors and bloom all summer long! The pretty two step flowers and leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Delicate Dahlias stamp set captures the beauty of these flowers so well.

Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends Note Card

Happy Saturday! I’m enjoying the last few weekends of Summer and I hope you are too! I have a friendship tag card today made with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends photopolymer stamp set. This set has wonderful sentiments that you can mix and match and I paired it with the Tailored Tags and Brilliant Wings dies. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Harvest Meadow designer series paper panel with the pretty Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder (note – be careful when inserting the paper into the embossing folder to ensure that letters are not backwards or upside down). I adhered the embossed panel to a Basic White mat and adhered the layered panel to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the Friends sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends stamp set in Versamark ink on a Soft Succulent panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I stamped the Forever sentiment in Soft Succulent ink and cut it out with the large fancy tag from the Tailor Made Tags dies. I cut a reinforcement from Cinnamon Cider and adhered it to the hole and cut another tag from the Cork specialty paper. I adhered the cork to the back and threaded some diamond weave ribbon and split Soft Succulent ribbon through the holes. I tied the ribbons with a linen thread bow and popped the tags on the card front with dimensionals.

I cut the small detailed butterfly with the Brilliant Wings dies from Brushed Copper foil and adhered it to the tag with a glue dot. I finished the front with iridescent Soft Succulent jewels.


For the inside of the card, I embossed another strip of Harvest Meadow DSP with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends stamp set in Soft Succulent in the lower corner, leaving plenty of room to write a personal message.

A simple tag card made with the pretty sentiments from Stampin’ Up! Create With Friends stamp set! It’s made special by combining a bunch of wonderful textures – the cork specialty paper, shiny metallic butterfly, ribbons and embossed background and sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Fall Frenzy” and I’m seeing so many pumpkin decor items around so I decided to use the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle for my card today. 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 the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of a Cajun Craze card base. I made a horizontal stripe by layering strips of Cork, Harvest Meadow designer series paper, Cajun Craze and Granny Apple Green card stock and adhering it to the card front.

I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins cling stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I colored them with Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the stripe with dimensionals and glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Forever Greenery stamp set in Early Espresso on a Crumb Cake panel and cut it out with the small Tailor Made Tags die. I cut another tag from the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhered it to the back of the Crumb Cake label. I colored a length of white baker’s twine with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend and cut a length of Crumb Cake twine. I slipped the twine through the holes in the tags and tied a bow. I adhered the tag to the card front with glue dots and finished the card front with five green Decorative Matte Dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the pumpkin vines on the bottom and colored them with Granny Apple Green, Ole Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is my first fall card of the year and it was hard to resist coloring these pumpkins with Stampin’ Blends. But the Stampin’ Up! Pretty Pumpkins bundle has other cute pumpkin images, wonderful sentiments and gorgeous artsy pumpkin dies that will be loads of fun to play with – such a versatile set.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today’s card is made with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp bundle and the pretty You’re A Peach designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week and here is the sweet color palette we are using:

I adhered a thin strip of Calypso Coral dotted You’re A Peach designer series paper to a Balmy Blue dotted DSP and then adhered them both to the floral DSP. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of Mango Melody card base.

I cut another panel of Balmy Blue dotted You’re A Peach DSP with the third largest Layering Circles die and cut a Calypso Coral panel with the scalloped circle die and adhered them together. I adhered them to the card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and cut it out with the little label from the Peach dies.

I inked the large peach from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pale Papaya ink and used a sponge dauber to apply Calypso Coral ink around the edge. I stamped it on Basic White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I repeated this so that I had two peaches. I inked up the large leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink and used a sponge dauber to add Soft Suede ink to the stem. I stamped this on Basic White and cut the leaves out with the coordinating die. I repeated it so I had a leaf for each peach. I adhered the leaves to the peaches with glue dots and adhered the first peach to the circle with glue dots and the second with dimensionals. I adhered the label to the circle with glue dots to finish the card front.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf branch from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz in the corner of a Basic White panel. I inked the small peaches in Mango Melody and Calypso Coral using the same technique as the front peaches and stamped the little peaches on the branches. I stamped the sentiments in Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz and adhered a strip of the floral You’re A Peach DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach bundle is wonderful with gorgeous images, great sentiments and so many versatile dies. And the You’re a Peach designer series paper is so pretty – it’s a great combination for summertime cards for any occasion!

Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry Friendship Card

Good Morning! I used the pretty Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry photopolymer stamp set and the pretty Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to make a fun friendship card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the large flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Bumblebee on a on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and leaves in Just Jade under the flower and adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

I adhered a panel of Sweet Symmetry designer series paper to a Bumblebee mat and adhered it to the front of a Night of Navy card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Night of Navy on a Calypso Coral panel. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat.

I adhered the large flower panel to the card front with dimensionals and adhered the label under it with glue dots. I accented the flower with small Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the medium flower from the Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set in Bumblebee ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and two sets of the small leaves in Just Jade ink under the flower. I stamped the sentiment next to the flower in Night of Navy ink and adhered a strip of the Sweet Symmetry DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Bumblebee mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! In Symmetry stamp set is real pretty with graphic floral images and wonderful sentiments. I love the colorful Sweet Symmetry designer series paper. It’s full of pretty small floral designs in geometric patterns. It’s so happy and it’s on sale at 15% off through August 2!
