Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle is a sweet Spring weather themed cling stamp set with dies that have the cutest critters enjoying spring rain and flowers. The fabulous dies also cut out some of the images in the beautiful Rain or Shine specialty designer series paper. I used both the bundle and paper for the fun fold card I made in my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my FB Live video on my Facebook page HERE. I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered panels of Rain or Shine specialty DSP to each section of my scored and burnished Balmy Blue card base with liquid glue. See the scoring measurements below in the Card Stock Cuts. I cut a little DSP piggy with an umbrella with the 4th largest Layering Circles dies and adhered it to an Old Olive scalloped circle cut with the 4th largest scalloped circle die. I adhered him to the back panel in the field of flowers.

I cut the kite from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain dies from Basic White. I cut the kite sections from a Flirty Flamingo section of the Rain or Shine specialty DSP and adhered it to the kite. I cut the kite bow ties from Old Olive and adhered them to the kite string with liquid glue and adhered the kite to the back panel so that just a little bit is peeking out when the card is closed.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the check pattern of Rain or Shine DSP and adhered the panel to the second section of the card base. Now that the main part of the card was done, I scored the belly band and wrapped it around the card to check it. It fit snug, so I applied Stampin’ Seal to the ends to secure it and wrapped it loosely around the card again before pressing the ends together. I adhered another strip of checked Rain or Shine DSP to the belly band to cover the seam.

For the belly band decoration, I cut the cute little turtle from the Rain or Shine specialty DSP with the turtle die from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain dies. I cut another turtle from Basic White and adhered them together with liquid glue. I cut a Crushed Curry circle using the 3rd largest Layering circle die and an Old Olive scalloped circle with the 3rd largest scalloped circle. I adhered the circles together and cut a puddle from Balmy blue. I adhered the puddle to the circles and adhered the turtle with dimensionals. I used rolled up glue dots to adhere three flower embellishments to the lie cut and adhered the layered circles to the belly band with liquid glue.

This was my first belly band card and they can be tricky because you want the band to be loose enough to slide on and off easily, but not too loose to fall off unintentionally. Also, you want to make sure it fits into your envelope. Mine just barely fits, so I think I need to fiddle a little with the measurements to get a little extra room, especially with a fancy belly band with lots of dimension. But it was a fun card to make, especially with the cute critters from the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle and Rain or Shine specialty papers!

I saw a video by my Inkin’ Krew teammate Tara Carpenter where she made cards with this Fun Fold and I fell in love with it, so I had to make one. You can see her pretty card here. And I wanted to use the Stampin’ Up! Playing in the Rain bundle because it coordinates with the upcoming February Paper Pumpkin set. I can’t wait to get it!

Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the cute Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls Sale-A-Bration stamp set? I finally pulled mine out and used it with the pretty Happy Forest Friends designer series paper for a natural look. The owls in this set are so sweet and cute that they go great with everything! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

The Paper Player’s Challenge PP622 is a Tag Challenge, so I’m entering today’s card in the challenge!

I adhered a panel of Happy Forest Friends designer series paper to an Old Olive mat and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I stamped the cute flying owl from the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls photopolymer stamp set using Soft Suede ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the owl with Stampin’ Blends – dark and light Crumb Cake, light Daffodil Delight, light Balmy Blue and light Petal Pink. I fussy cut this owl with my paper snips. It’s not the easiest piece to cut out, so don’t examine it too close, just look at the big blue eyes and say ‘Awww’.

I used a blending brush to apply Balmy Blue ink to the center of a Basic White panel and cut it out with the second largest circle in the Stylish Shapes dies. I cut a panel of Old Olive with the second largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle dies and adhered it to the back of the blue circle. I adhered the layered circles to the card front with liquid glue and popped the fussy cut owl on top with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink on a Crumb Cake Panel and cut it out with the small angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut the reinforcer from Old Olive and adhered it to the tag. I looped a short length of stitched burlap ribbon through the hole and tied it off with white baker’s twine, making a bow. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and finished the card with pastel iridescent gems.

I kept the inside simple by trimming the bottom of a Basic White panel with Happy Forest Friends DSP and adhering the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal

The owls in the Stampin’ Up! Adorable Owls stamp set are so cute and sweet! This is one of the free Sale-A-Bration items you can get for free wit a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration.

Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Valentine’s Day Card

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of the pretty Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet bundle from the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog that will be available on January 5, 2023. This sweet bundle is part of the Country Floral Lane suite and has so many wonderful Valentine’s Day and Love themed images, sentiments and embellishments. My card today is a Valentine’s Day card for a friend. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a Sweet Sorbet heart designed panel of Country Floral Lane designer series paper to a Basic White mat and adhered it to the front of a Sweet Sorbet card base with dimensionals. I stamped the large hearts and flowers stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet photopolymer stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the coordinating leaves stamp in Soft Succulent on top of the flowers and hearts. I found that this was easy to line up. I fussy cut the heart with my paper snips and adhered it to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the striped heart in Sweet Sorbet on Basic White and cut it out with the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet punch. I adhered it to the large heart with glue dots. I stamped two of the small solid hearts in Sweet Sorbet ink on Basic White, punched them out and adhered them to the card with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White strip. I trimmed the end with my paper snips and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. I made a double bow with Sweet Sorbet baker’s twine and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the card with lots of iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White panel. I stamped the double solid mini hearts in Sweet Sorbet next to the sentiment and the little sprig in Soft Succulent under the hears. I trimmed the side of the panel with a strip of Country Floral Lane DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Hearts and flowers say Valentine’s Day and I love the ones in the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet bundle! Here is my card with the bundle and the Country Floral Lane DSP. I love that the punch cuts out so many of the stamps and the DSP too!

Here are the pretty designs in the Country Floral Lane designer series paper pack:

All these pretty items will be available on January 5, 2023, just in time to get ready for Valentine’s Day!

Stampin’ Up! In The Country Sneak Peek

Good Morning! The upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog will be available on January 5, 2023. On the same date, Sale-A-Bration 2023 will be open. I have sneak peek of two stamp sets from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration brochure that I used on today’s card. They are the Stampin’ Up! In The Country cling stamp set and the Sending Support cling stamp set. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used a watercolor technique today with water painters and ink pads on Shimmery White card stock to color the pretty country path in the Stampin’ Up! In The Country stamp set. I stamped the image using Black Stazon Ink on Shimmery White card stock. I colored the sky Balmy Blue and the fields in light Garden Green and dark Mint Macaron. The Trees are done in dark Mossy Meadow and dark Garden Green and the path in Crumb Cake. I used dark Soft Suede on the fence. I am not a painter, so don’t be too critical. I kept my water painter just moist enough to spread the color and quickly dry and I like the way it came out!

I cut a panel of Design A Daydream designer series paper with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the front of a Crumb Cake card base. I adhered a strip of natural ribbon to the card with Stampin’ Seal on top of the DSP. I cut the country path with the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a Soft Suede mat with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Sending Support, in Black Stazon ink on Shimmery White. I used a water painter to apply a Crumb Cake wash over the sentiment and cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and dimensionals and finished it with a champagne flower trinket.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Support stamp set in Mossy Meadow ink in the lower corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Design a Daydream DSP to the side of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This little scene reminds me of a hillside farm close to my house with a post and rail fence along the road. I imagine that 100 years ago, the paved road looked like this. I love the way the country path curves so you can’t see around the bend and the little courage sentiment was fitting for this scene. Here are the two Sale-A-Bration stamp sets with today’s card.

Here is the Stampin’ Up! In The Country stamp set. It has two pretty scenic images that are perfect for experimenting with different coloring techniques.

Here is the Sending Support stamp set. It has lots of uplifting sentiments for expressing encouragement and support for friends and loved ones.

Both of these pretty stamp sets will be available on January 5, 2023 as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion. They will both be FREE with a $50 order before shipping and taxes. They are just a few new items to look forward to after the holidays!

But they inspired me to pull out the sweet Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels photopolymer stamp set to make a simple Fall Hello card. This is a fun two-step stamp set with the cutest squirrels that you can find in the current 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 the falling leaves Celebrate Everything designer series paper to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Gray Granite baker’s twine around it three times and made a bow. I adhered the wrapped panel to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimennsionals.

I stamped the outline of the sweet squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set inn Soft Suede ink on Basic White. I stamped the filler stamp with the body and tail in Gray Granite, lining up the paws and tail. It’s nice to be able to line things up with the photopolymer stamps. I stamped the acorn top in Soft Suede and bottom in Crumb Cake. I cut the squirrel out with the second largest square from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to a Shaded Spruce mat with liquid glue. I adhered the squirrel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Granny Apple Green card stock. I cut it out with the smallest banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhered it to the card with glue dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf in Crushed Curry and the lines in the leaf in Memento Tuxedo Black – I love how well this leaf matches the leaves in the DSP! I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Celebrate Everything DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The squirrels in the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set are so cute and sweet and they’re perfect for fall cards. The two-step stamping technique is pretty easy to do with this stamp set and there are so many coordinating stamps that compliment the squirrels. Have fun with this set!

Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! We returned to PA last week, just in time for the Fall Foliage to peak, so I was inspired to use the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set to capture the beauty. I finally finished my card and used the pretty sentiments from the Very Best Occasion cling stamp set with it. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the oak leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set several times on a Very Vanilla panel. I used a technique where I inked the stamp in one color and used a sponge dauber to apply a second color to parts of the leaf before stamping the image on the card stock. I used Crumb Cake with Parakeet Party, Calypso Coral with Parakeet Party and Crushed Curry with Calypso Coral. I cleaned the stamp after each leaf and rubbed out the excess color from my sponge daubers to keep my ink pad colors from mixing.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and adhered the panel to a Crumb Cake mat. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Calypso Coral card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Crushed Curry strip and trimmed the end with my paper snips. I folded a length of natural ribbon, secured the middle with a glue dot and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the label over the ribbon with dimensionals and finished it with a rustic metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I inked up the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Hello Harvest stamp set in Crushed Curry and Calypso coral and stamped it next to the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

We had beautiful Fall Foliage this week, but after Halloween, half of the trees are bare – the peak passed so fast! Falling leaves are so peaceful, and these sentiments are so pretty, making a nice fall friendship card, encouragement card or even a get well card.

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Friendship Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle is an early release from the upcoming Jan-Jun 2023 Mini Catalog and it is so beautiful! It will be available on Tuesday along with the beautiful Fitting Florets designer series paper when the Fitting Florets promotion begins. But the designer series paper will only be available during this special promotion, so I’ve layered it on today’s friendship card so you can see how well it goes with the beautiful stamp set. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a plaid strip of the Fitting Florets designer series paper to a leafy Soft Succulent panel of the DSP with liquid glue before adhering them both to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base. I adhered a floral panel of the DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat before adhering them both to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen on Balmy Blue. I cut it out with the long label die from the Potted Succulents dies and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the single flower in Night of Navy on Basic White and colored it with Balmy Blue and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends, with a light shading on the petals. I stamped the little leaf pair in Evening Evergreen and colored it with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends, shading it darker in the leaf centers. I cut the leaves and flower out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered the leaves to the back of the flower with a glue dot. I folded a short length of Evening Evergreen ribbon and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I adhered the flower and leaf on the ribbon with dimensionals. I colored the flower with Wink of Stella to give it a little sparkle and finished the label with a Balmy Blue faceted dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little leaf pair from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored it with Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends like the leaves on the front. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Fitting Florets DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

A layered card design is the perfect way to show off beautiful designer series paper, because you have so many pretty colors and patterns that coordinate well together. And since it’s Stampin’ Up!, the colors also coordinate with card stock, inks and markers, so you can easily put together a pretty card. Look closely and you’ll notice how the little blue flower in the background DSP goes perfectly with the stamped and colored flower on the label. Learn more about the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle below.

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to play some more with the Framed Florets bundle and the Fitting Florets DSP. I look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree Kindness Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the pretty Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree bundle? This bundle has a pretty aspen forest background die cut that also looks like a birch tree background. And the cling stamps have a sweet bird and beautiful sentiments that can be used for any time of year. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a Basic White panel with the large tree frame die from the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree bundle and adhered it to a panel of Gray Granite Boughs of Holly designer series paper. I frayed the ends of a short length of Natural ribbon and adhered it to the panel with Stampin’ Seal before adhering the layered die cut to the front of a Gray Granite card base.

I cut a large aspen leaf and two small leaves from each of the colors of Brushed Metallic Foil using the Aspen Tree dies and adhered them to the card front over the ribbon with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree stamp set in Versamark Ink on Soft Suede. I sprinkled the sentiment with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny and cut it out with the Stylish Shapes large banner die. I adhered the label to the card with dimensionals and finished the card with three iridescent gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the pretty little bird in the lower corner of a Basic White panel in Gray Granite ink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

I love how using the different textures from the DSP, ribbon and foil leaves makes this card so elegant! But it all starts with the beautiful tree frame die from the Stampin’ Up! Perched In A Tree bundle!

Stampin’ Up! By My Side Friendship Card

Good Morning! I hope you are enjoying a beautiful Fall weekend! Today I have a cute little friendship card made with the Stampin’ Up! Side By Side cling stamp set and the cute Playful Piggy Dies that are available with the Perfect Partners promotion this month. 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 Tahitian Tide plaid 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a Tahitian Tide card base. I stamped the little boy with the dog from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White along with an extra dog. I colored the little boy and dogs with Stampin’ Blends. I used the dark Smoky Slate and Natural Medium Tones 006 on the dogs and Natural Medium Light Tones 008, light Pumpkin Pie, Light Night of Navy and dark Crumb Cake on the little boy. I fussy cut all three on the line with my paper snips and colored the edge of the paper with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker.

I cut the grass from the Playful Piggy dies from Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the Balmy Blue panel with liquid glue. I cut the wagon from Sweet Sorbet and the wheels and handle from Basic Black and adhered them together with liquid glue. I cut two clouds from the Give it a Whirl dies from Basic White and adhered them to the top of the Balmy Blue panel. I trimmed the cloud with my paper snips and adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat. I adhered the little boy and dogs to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the die cut wagon with dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the little butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I colored it with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic white and cut it out with the Playful Piggy label die. I adhered a strip of ribbon to the card with glue dots and adhered the label over the ribbon with bits of dimensionals straddling the ribbon.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment, dog and butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! By My Side stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the dog with the Ivory and the butterfly with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of 2022-2024 In Color DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The little children in the Stampin’ Up! By my Side stamp set are really sweet and I love the wagon from the Playful Piggy dies. I hope you like the combination as much as I do! And hurry, because this is the last week for the Perfect Partners promotion!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous Beauty Card

Good Morning! I pulled out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous photopolymer stamp set for a simple floral note card. I was away and my flower gardens look a little ragged after I returned. They inspired me to make a floral card with Fall colors with this fun stamp set. 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 Design A Daydream designer series paper to a Cajun Craze card base.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaves and flowers across the bottom and the side in Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Parakeet Party, Polished Pink, Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Oasis. I adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat and wrapped it with Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine and made a bow. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I used the beautiful Brilliant Wings dies to make a butterfly. I cut the two smallest butterflies from Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry card stock and adhered them together with liquid glue before adhering them to the card with a glue dot. I finished the card front with amber faceted gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous stamp set across the bottom of a basic white panel, using the same ink colors as the card front. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Simply Fabulous stamp set is a lot of fun to play with. I did a lot of stamping and experimented with different layouts and ink colors before deciding on this arrangement. I love the different greens with the Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry – it really captures the changing colors of Fall. I had to have some Polished Pink flowers for the pretty late bloomers and the pops of Orchid Oasis brightens the scene. And of course we need a butterfly! Enjoy the Fall gardens!!

Stampin’ Up! is also hosting a free, virtual card making event on October 1 from 2:00–5:00 pm (MT)!  In just under three hours, Stampin’ Up will make three unique cards with the Cottage Rose Bundle, Cottage Wreath Bundle and the Warm Welcome Bundle (an early release from the Jan-Jun 2023 Mini Catalog).  Everyone is invited and welcome, and registration is not required, but it is encouraged to stay up to date.

As an added bonus, when you order any of the three bundles used for the event, you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! (Note that even if you order all three bundles, you’ll only receive one Iridescent Pearls gift) Click HERE to download a brochure with ordering details and check out the early release of the Warming Welcome bundle for this event:
