Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer Rustic Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I have a rustic Christmas Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle and the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper. And I used them to make a fun fold card called a Joy Fold card during 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.

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.

The Joy Fold card is like a double card with a smaller card on top of a regular size card. It’s great because it provides a lot of surfaces for decorating with pretty designer series papers, die cuts, punch outs and stamped designs.

I adhered the Garden Green tree print from the Peaceful Prints DSP to the inside of the inside large card and the Sahara Sand small deer print to the inside flap. I traced the back of the right facing deer and used it as a guide to punch out the deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP using the deer punch from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer bundle. I adhered the deer to the inside of the large flap. I adhered the Garden Green snowflake panel to the outside of the large card flap. I adhered the Real Red plaid snowflake Peaceful Prints DSP to the outside front of the small card and the diagonal stripe to the inside.

I cut the second largest octagon die from the Hippo and Friends die from Basic White and embossed it with the snowflakes from the Wintry 3D embossing folder. I punched the left facing prancing deer from the Peaceful Prints DSP along with another Deer from Basie White and adhered them together. I trimmed the end of the Real Red strip with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered the banner to the embossed panel with Glue Dots and adhered the deer with Dimensionals.

I adhered the small card to the inside of the large card using Tear & Tape. I stamped the deer from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand ink in the lower corner of the Basic White pane. I stamped the medium trees in Garden Green and the sentiment in Real Red. I adhered the panel to the inside of the small card. I used the small circle dies from the Gingerbread dies to cut out a snowflake from the Peaceful Prints DSP and adhered it to a Real Red die cut circle and adhered it to the large card front with dimensionals. This is to tuck the front flap in and is purely optional. I finished the card with a gingham bow and red matte dots.

The Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Deer stamp bundle has so many sweet deer and woodland images and the punch is perfect. It coordinates perfectly with the Sale A Bration Peaceful Prints designer series paper that you can choose for free with a $50 purchase for a rustic Christmas look.

Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour Video Tutorial

Happy 4th of July!! I hope you have the opportunity to relax and celebrate with family and friends this weekend. When I first saw these flowers in the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour bundle, I thought of fireworks, so I wanted to use them in a red, white and blue card to celebrate the day 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.

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 stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour photopolymer stamp set three times in Real Red ink on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. I cut the second smallest scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies from Balmy Blue and cut a Basic White panel to go on top. I stamped the sentiment in Balmy Blue on the side of the Basic White panel and adhered it to the die cut Balmy Blue scalloped rectangle.

I embossed a Real Red panel with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base. I adhered a panel of Balmy Blue striped You’re a Peach designer series paper to a Balmy Blue mat and popped it on the card front with dimensionals. I adhered the layered label to the DSP panel and adhered two of the Real Red flowers on the side with liquid glue.

I popped the final Real Red flower on top with dimensionals and added a bow made from the pretty Real Red stitched ribbon. I finished the card front off with three white elegant gems.

I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour stamp set in the lower corner of a Basic White panel, masked it with a die cut scrap flower and stamped another flower on top. I stamped a third flower in the upper corner and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Balmy Blue striped DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The floral images in the Stampin’ Up! Color and Contour bundle are so versatile and the Scalloped Contours dies in the bundle are just the best. This is definitely one of my favorites!! Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend and Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach Video Tutorial

Good Morning, I hope you had a great weekend. Today I’m sharing a fun card made with the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach bundle. It’s a simple fun fold card that is really easy to make and is so pretty with the 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.

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.

This is a pretty simple fun fold in that it just splits a top fold card front in half, rotates the bottom and turns it on it’s side. Not only that, I did it backwards, making the inside of the card first. I am so confused!! So let’s start at the beginning…

Cut off the bottom 2-3/4″ of a 4-1/2″ x 11″ (scored at 5-1/2″) Calypso Coral card base so you have a 4-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ card base scored at 5-1/2″ and a 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ panel. Adhere a panel of floral You’re A Peach designer series paper to the inside of the card with liquid glue. Stamp the little flower and leaf pair from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach photopolymer stamp set in Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz ink in the top corner of a Basic White panel. Do this a couple of times. Adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and then adhere the layered panel to the inside of the card.

Adhere the floral You’re A Peach DSP to the front flap. Emboss the Basic White panel with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhere it to the Calypso Coral panel that was cut off the bottom of the card base. Stamp the leaf spray from the Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on the Basic White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Peach dies.

Ink up the triple small peaches stamp with Pale Papaya ink and apply some Calypso Coral ink around the edges with a sponge dauber. Stamp the peaches on Basic White and cut them out with the coordinating die. Stamp the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz on Basic White and cut it out with the Messages die. Adhere the label and leaf spray to the embossed panel with glue dots and pop the peaches on the leaf spray with dimensionals.

Adhere the decorated panel to the top flap with Tear & Tape, being careful not to get tape on the section of the panel that touches the inside of the card. Finish off the decorated panel with three sequins and a white bow.

The Stampin’ Up! Sweet As A Peach bundle is really very versatile, with flower and peach stamps, wonderful sentiments and dies that cut everything out and dies that cut out additional mini greenery! I thought I found a good method for lining up the leaf spray stamp so it would be die cut nicely – well that didn’t work out during the video. I think I’ll try doing something similar to the method for lining up stamps with builder punches next! The leaf spray stamp has thin section that can be misaligned if you’re not careful when mounting it on your block. This is good because you don’t have extra stamp material that can pick up ink and make for messy stamping. It’s also good if you want to curve the spray in a different way and not die cut – and this is a beautiful look too! So all in all, I am in love with this beautiful new bundle and I hope you like it too!

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I made a fun fold Thank You card with featuring the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle and the pretty Pansy Petals designer series paper. The style of the card is called a Book Fold or Book Binder Fold and it’s an easy fun fold that is great for showcasing pretty coordinating 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 theme challenge this week and our challenge is to use punches! How fun!!

I applied Tear & Tape to the side hinge part of a Pale Papaya card base, pulled the cover and adhered the hinge closed. I adhered the Soft Succulent gingham Pansy Petals DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat and adhered it to the hinge with liquid glue. I wrapped the hinge with a length of Fresh Freesia Ribbon and tied a bow. I secured the bow to the hinge with a glue dot. I adhered the floral Pansy Petals DSP to an Evening Evergreen Mat and popped it onto the open part of the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Petals photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a Fresh Freesia panel and punched it out with the Double Oval punch. I punched a Soft Succulent panel with the scalloped oval section and adhered the two punched ovals together with liquid glue and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped small pansies from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Pale Papaya, Pumpkin Pie, Fresh Freesia, Gorgeous Grape and Daffodil Delight. I stamped two in Pale Papaya with stamped off Pumpkin Pie accents and Daffodil Delight centers and two with Gorgeous Grape outsides and accents, Fresh Freesia tops (I masked off the bottom three petals) and Daffodil Delight centers. I cut all of them out with the die.

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Soft Succulent backgrounds and Evening Evergreen details and cut them out with the corresponding dies. I adhered three leaves to the card front with liquid glue and popped the pansies on top with dimensionals. I finished the card front off with 2021-2023 In Color jewels.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch stamp set in Fresh Freesia ink on a Basic White panel and adhered the remaining die cut pansies and leaves in the top corner. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Book Fold card is a real easy fun fold and it’s great with the Pansy Petals DSP. The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is so pretty and versatile. It’s so much fun to play with because pansies come in so many different colors and styles and you can combine the stamps in so many different ways to recreate your favorites!

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Birthday” and I made a Z-fold card with the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays stamp set and the beautiful Hydrangea Hill designer series paper. This is such a cheerful sentiment and is so versatile! Instead of the floral feminine birthday card, you can pair it with a masculine DSP for a Birthday card for the men in your family or add balloons and confetti for a lighthearted, youthful look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays cling stamp set with my Stamparatus in an Ombre fashion. First I inked the top part of the stamp in Gorgeous Grape, sponged the bottom edge of the ink with a sponge dauber to soften the ink edge and stamped the Basic White panel. I wiped the ink with a moist chamois and inked the stamp with Highland Heather covering the middle and top. Then I wiped the stamp again and inked the bottom of the stamp with Misty Moonlight, again using the sponge dauber to soften the ink line. The Stamparatus was perfect, allowing me to stamp precisely over the same spot without making a mess!

I die cut the second largest Scalloped Contour rectangle from Gorgeous Grape and adhered the stamped panel to the center. I finished the panel with three floral embellishments and a Gorgeous Grape bow.

I adhered the floral Hydrangea Hill designer series paper to the right and left sections of the scored card base. I adhered the striped paper to the center and burnished the folds with my bone folder in a mountain and valley fashion.

I cut the Basic White panel with the second largest Scalloped Contours die and stamped the corners with the hydrangea flowers from the Hydrangea Haven photopolymer stamp set. I masked the corners before stamping so that only the paper inside the stitching would be stamped. I adhered the panel to the center of the large floral panel with liquid glue. Then I adhered strips of Tear & Tape to the left side of the front scalloped panel, pulled off the covers and adhered the panel to the card front, being careful to align it with the Basic White inside panel.

Isn’t the Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays wish cheerful and uplifting? And since it’s a large sentiment, it is really easy to do in an ombre or multi color look that makes it even more special!
