Stampin’ Up! Notes of Cheer Card Kit

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Notes of Cheer card kit is one of the kits in the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection and it’s one that doesn’t require any stamping! It’s perfect for when you’re short on time or for beginning card makers. I made some of the cards in the kit with my grandchildren and it was fun. They loved the butterflies – especially the butterfly shaped card – and they’re great at using dimensionals and adhesive gems.

Here’s the video by Stampin’ Up! featuring Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass showing how to put together each card according to the directions.

And the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection just added a new kit to make Birthday cards called Light the Candles!

This kit is a stamping kit and it comes with a cute photopolymer stamp set and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Spot. Check it out:

Details:

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 8 cards—4 each of 2 designs—and 8 coordinating envelopes.
  • Includes printed card bases, printed die cuts, adhesive, embellishments, and a clear block.
  • Includes an exclusive stamp set and a Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Spot.
  • Finished card size: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Coordinating colors: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Night of Navy

You can find all the kits in the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection section of my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sneak Peek

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello bundle is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can choose for FREE with a $100 order (before shipping and taxes) during the upcoming Jan-Feb 2022 Sale-A-Bration that begins on January 4, 2022. It consists of a pretty photopolymer stamp set along with a set of coordinating designer series paper! I used it to make today’s pretty Hello Friend card. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Friendly Hello designer series paper in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered it to the front of a Pool Party card base. I cut a panel of Friendly Hello DSP with the bird and flowers centered on the panel. I cut two Shaded Spruce strips with the Ornate Layers die and adhered them to the top and bottom back of the bird panel and adhered the bird panel to the stamped DSP panel. I adhered the layered DSP panel to the front of a Pool Party card base.

I stamped the bird and flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the bird in Pool Party and the flowers in Fresh Freesia, Petal Pink and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut the bird and flowers with my Paper Snips and adhered them over the bird and flowers in the DSP.

I adhered faux pearls around the bird and made a bow with Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Flowers of Friendship stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green on the top corner of the panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of the Friendly Hello DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The coordinating images in the Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello Sale-A-Bration bundle are sweet and the stamp set has some pretty sentiments. Here’s a picture of the stamp set with some of the pretty papers:

The colors in the pretty Stampin’ Up! Friendly Hello designer series paper are Basic Black, Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Petal Pink, Pool Party and Shaded Spruce. These colors are so soft and fresh and perfect for spring.

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today card, I have a sneak peek of a cute little Sale-A-Bration cling stamp set that will be available on January 4, 2022 called Awesome Otters. And there’s also a cute 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack that will also be available during Sale-A-Bration with pretty monochrome swirls called Simply Marbleous. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch this week for our Blog Hop – here is the pretty sketch we are using:

I adhered a panel of dotted Pattern Play designer series paper to a Basic White panel and then adhered them both to the front of a Pool Party card base. I stamped the otter from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set on a panel of pool party Sale-A-Bration Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ designer series paper in Early Espresso ink and cut it out with the Layering Circles die. I cut a scalloped circle and adhered the stamped circle on top with liquid glue.

I stamped the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters otter stamp again in Early Espresso on a panel of Basic White. I colored it with Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends and colored the fish with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I fussy cut the fish and adhered it to the die cut circle with dimensionals. I adhered the layered circle to the card front with dimensionals, leaving room for the label.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots, tucking it under the otter. I finished the card front with three Pool Party rhinestones.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the little otter from the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel and colored it with Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends. I used the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends to color the water and adhered a strip of Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Both the Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters cling stamp set and the Simply Marbleous 6″ x 6″ designer series paper will be available as FREE Sale-A-Bration items with $50 purchases (before shipping and taxes) beginning January 4, 2021. Here’s a picture of the stamp set and the DSP with today’s card:

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Sneak Peek II

Good Morning! I don’t know about you, but with Christmas just around the corner and so much left to do, I am totally stressed! Plus, I’m visiting my son and his family and they’ll be moving next month, so there’s even more that needs to be done! For these times, the new Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set is perfect for reminders of calmer times. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I found a pretty panel of the new Abstract Beauty specialty designer series paper that will be available in the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for the background and I wanted to use a different technique to color the relaxing image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set – coloring it with Watercolor Pencils! Here’s how I did that. I first stamped the image on Shimmery White paper using Jet Black Stazon Ink. I colored different sections of the image with the Water Color pencils – Night of Navy for the pants, Coastal Cabana for the blanket, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze for the puppy, Flirty Flamingo for the pillows and cup, Calypso Coral for the sox, Rich Razzleberry for the bed and Crushed Curry, Basic Gray for the book, Daffodil Delight & Cajun Craze for her hair.

After coloring, I used a blender pen to smooth and blend the color in each section. I wiped the excess color from the blender pen with a paper towel before starting the next section to keep the colors from bleeding. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat when finished. I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy the Moment stamp set on the side of a strip of Vellum using Night of navy ink and let it dry – Vellum takes a little longer to dry and you can use your heat tool to speed it up if needed. I adhered the Vellum to the back of the matted art panel after it dried.

I adhered the pretty Abstract Beauty specialty designer series paper to the front of a Just Jade card base with liquid glue and adhered a folded strip of Just Jade gingham ribbon to the front with glue dots where the sentiment would be. I adhered the layered art panel to the card front with dimensionals under the card stock and used a glue dot behind the sentiment.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of embossed Kraft paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I finished the card front with a small Gilded Gem to pick up the gold foil accents in the pretty DSP.

I think the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set will definitely be a favorite. This pretty set and the beautiful Artistic Beauty specialty DSP will be available in the upcoming new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog when it goes live on January 4, 2022. Try using different coloring techniques for your images! It changes things up and keeps stamping fun!

Here’s a picture of the pretty stamp set and the DSP. A note about the Abstract Beauty specialty DSP – it is a new size!! It will come in a 4″ x 6″ size with 48 sheets of 12 different double sided designs, and one side will have touches of gold foil! And it’s so pretty!! Remember the date – January 4, 2022!

Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today I have another sneak peek of a new bundle from the upcoming January – June 2022 Mini Catalog that will be available on Jan 4, 2022 – the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home bundle! I’m also using the new Hive 3D embossing folder and the pretty new Heart & Home designer series paper that will also be available. 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 Pale Papaya designer series paper with the new Hive 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pale Papaya card base. I wrapped a length of white crinkle ribbon around the card front, tying a bow on the side. I cut a panel of Heart & Home designer series paper with a Layering Circle die and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider die cut scalloped circle and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I cut a Fresh Freesia panel with two floral sprigs from the Honeybee Blooms dies and a Soft Succulent panel with two grass clumps. I adhered the floral sprig and grass clump die cuts to the DSP panel with liquid glue. I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home cling stamp set in Basic Gray ink twice on Basic Gray and colored it with Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the coordinating dies and popped them on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Soft Succulent panel and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I finished off the card front with Basic Gray Matte Dots (available Jan 4, 2022).

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home stamp set in Basic Gray on a Basic White panel. I stamped the little bee in the top corner and the flowers in the lower corner, also in Basic Gray. I colored the flowers like the front and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Honeybee Home bundle is such a pretty set with soft images and beautiful sentiments that is part of the Heart & Home Suite in the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog. These products will be available on January 4, 2022 when the catalog goes live and they’re sure to become favorites!

Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness Sneak Peek

Good Morning! Today is the first day of the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator pre-order for the upcoming January – June 2022 Mini Catalog and I am excited to share a sneak peek of a wonderful new bundle – the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow of Happiness bundle. This bundle will be available January 4, 2022 when the new catalog goes live. 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 Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Basic White mat. The Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP coordinates with the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle and will be available as a Sale-A-Bration item that is FREE with a $50 purchase starting January 4, 2022.

I used the rainbow border die from the Brilliant Rainbow dies in the new Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle to cut a border from a strip of Basic White and adhered it to the DSP panel. I cut a strip of Petal Pink ribbon and additional strips of the Sunshine & Rainbows DSP, punching some of them with the Banners Pick-A-Punch and adhered them to the panel.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness photopolymer stamp set in Bermuda Bay on a strip of Pool Party and punched the bottom with the Banners Pick-A-Punch. I cut the rainbow bands from Magenta Madness, So Saffron, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda bay and adhered them to the back of the sentiment with Stampin’ Seal – save the extra rainbow bands for future rainbows! I adhered the banner to the panel with dimensionals, cutting skinny strips to go behind the rainbow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Crushed Curry card base with dimensionals and finished the card with a white baker’s twine bow.

For the inside of the card, I cut some extra strips of the pretty Sunshine & Rainbows DSP and punched the bottoms with the Banners Pick-A-Punch. I adhered them to the top corner of a Basic White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness stamp bundle is so sweet, with uplifting sentiments and fun rainbow stamps and dies. Here’s a picture of the Rainbow of Happiness photopolymer stamp set and and Brilliant Rainbow dies in the bundle:

And the coordinating Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP is so colorful and fun with 4 sheets each of 12 different double sided patterns! This will be a great Sale-A-Bration freebie starting January 4, 2022! Here are all the different patterns that it will contain:

Both the Stampin’ Up! Rainbow Of Happiness bundle and the Sale-A-Bration Sunshine & Rainbows 6″ x 6″ DSP will be available on January 4, 2022 when the new January – June Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure go live. I can’t wait!!

Stampin’ Up! In The Moment Sneak Peek

Good Morning! This weekend is the Stampin’ Up! Annual Convention – On Stage! This year’s convention is being held virtually but it’s still been lots of fun. One of our convention goodies is a pretty stamp set – Stampin’ Up! In The Moment, and I used it to make today’s simple card. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Kraft panel with the Macrame 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base.

I cut a Basic White panel with the Scalloped Contours die and stamped the pretty scene from the new Stampin’ Up! In The Moment cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the left side. I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends, Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia, Smoky Slate, Pale Papaya, Pool Party, Petal Pink and Poppy Parade.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake next to the scene and wrapped the panel with Crumb Cake baker’s twine and made a bow. I adhered the panel to the card front with Dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of embossed Kraft paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

This card really speaks to me in these hectic days and I love all the images in the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set. This pretty set will be available with the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog when it goes live on January 4, 2022.

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Friendship Card

Good Friday Morning! I hope you’re ready for a nice relaxing weekend. I made another card with the new Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden bundle! In today’s card, I used the pretty cling stamp set and new Soft Succulent cotton paper to create a panel of richly textured paper to go with the lush Ever Eden specialty designer series paper. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I randomly stamped the matte side of the Soft Succulent cotton paper with the large leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. I crinkled it in a ball a couple of times to get lots of wrinkles and gently opened it up. I covered a Basic White panel with an adhesive sheet, pulled off the cover and adhered the crinkled cotton paper to the front, leaving in crinkles and pressing it firmly. I trimmed the excess cotton paper and cut 1/2″ off the panel to have a strip for the inside.

I used the border die from the Eden dies to cut a strip of brushed metallic gold foil and adhered it to the back of the cotton paper panel and adhered them both to an Ever Eden specialty designer series paper panel with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Soft Succulent and cut it out with the second smallest angled Tailor Made Tags die. I cut out a reinforcer form Evening Evergreen and adhered it to the front. I cut another tag from Basic White and decorated it by adhering two leaf sprigs die cut from Evening Evergreen cotton paper. I adhered the Basic White tag to the back of the Soft Succulent tag and wrapped Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ribbon through the hole. I tied the ribbon with gold trim, making a bow, and adhered the tags to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf sprig in Evening Evergreen across the bottom of a Basic White panel after stamping off twice each time. I adhered the Soft Succulent cotton panel to the left side and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The the stamped and crinkled cotton paper technique is one I’ve used in the past with tissue paper. The cotton paper is a little stronger, but still very lightweight so it’s very fun to play with – a nice addition to the Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden collection that is available while supplies last.

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!
