Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. Today I’m sharing a sneak peek of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This gorgeous bundle is really versatile and fun to play with. I also use some new In Colors – Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Note that all of the new In Colors and products will be available when the new 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog goes live on May 5, 2021! Yay!!

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 adhered a panel of new Pansy Petals designer series paper to the front of a Fresh Freesia (one of the new 2021-2023 In Colors) card base. I die cut the pansy flower pieces from Fresh Freesia, Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss card stock using the Pansy dies from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle. I cut one of everything, but two of the smaller single petals and coordinating trim. I cut the flower stem from Soft Succulent (a new 2021-2023 In Color) and the leaves from Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen (another new 2021-2023 In Color) card stock.

I adhered the petal trim pieces for the pansy to the main petals with liquid glue and used mini glue dots to adhere the Daffodil Delight center and the two back petal to the large front petal. I used glue dots to adhere the bud layers and adhere the bud to the stem. I used liquid glue to adhere the Evening Evergreen detailed die cut leaves to the Soft Succulent leaves. I cut a scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contours dies (available May 5, 2021) from Basic White card stock and adhered the stem and bud with a glue dot to the die cut panel. I adhered the leaves to the bottom and popped the pansy flower on with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a strip of Soft Succulent card stock and trimmed the ends with the Banners Pick A Punch. I adhered the label to the card front with glue dots and popped on the pansy panel with dimensionals. I finished with a gold bumblebee trinket (available May 5, 2021).

For the inside, I trimmed the bottom of a Basic White panel with the pretty Pansy Petal DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch bundle is really great for making with Spring cards – there are so many pansies out and about these days! I can’t wait until it’s available on May 5, 2021 so everyone can have fun playing with this set. Below I have pictured my card, the stamp set, dies, Pansy Petals designer series paper and sweet bumblebee trinkets.

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Card

Good morning! Today I’m sharing a leafy, monochromatic hello card made with the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern bundle with the Forever Greenery designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Just Jade panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Just Jade Card Base. I cut a panel of Forever Greenery designer series paper with the middle sized scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies and adhered it to the white side of one of the laser cut gold foil panels from the Forever Gold specialty foil with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the panel to the front of the card with more Stampin’ Seal behind the DSP and liquid glue around the edge of the laser cut paper.

I stamped the leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Just Jade ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the coordinating die from the Forever Flourishing dies. I used a blending brush to apply Just Jade ink to both sides of the Vellum panel and cut it with one of the Forever Flourishing dies. I adhered the Vellum leaf and stamped leaf to the card front with glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade ink on a Basic White panel and cut it out with the smallest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I folded a length of Just Jade ribbon and adhered it to the card front and adhered white baker’s twine bow on top. I adhered these to the card front and popped the label on top with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three enamel dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Just Jade ink on the side of a Basic White panel and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Forever Greenery DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Both the pretty Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set and Forever Flourishing dies will be returning in the new catalog, but they will no longer be bundled with the 10% discount. The gorgeous Forever Greenery designer series paper and Forever Gold laser cut specialty paper are on the retiring list, so be sure to get them before they’re gone!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Video Tutorial

Good Morning! I hope you had a good weekend. I am still eagerly waiting for Spring, so I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle with the pretty Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper for my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon and made this cheery card. 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 adhered the striped strip of Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the side of a Basic White Panel and adhered the Floral DSP next to it. I cut a thin strip of Basic White with the Ornate Borders die and adhered it on the seam. I stamped the tulip from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips photopolymer stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on Basic White and punched it out with the Tulip Builder Punch. I stamped the leaf in Just Jade ink on Basic White and punched it out as well.

I stamped the sentiment from the Springtime Joy cling stamp set in Poppy Parade ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set next to the sentiment in Just Jade ink and the leaf next to the stem. I cut the label with the Tasteful Labels die and adhered it to the panel with dimensionals. I adhered the leaf and flower to the label with dimensionals, using double dimensionals behind the flower where it hung over the label.

I adhered the panel to the front of a Poppy Parade card base with dimensionals. I made a bow with the Just Jade gingham ribbon and adhered it with glue dots. I finished the card with three Just Jade enamel dots.

For the inside, I stamped the tulip in Poppy Parade ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped the stem and a leaf underneath in Just Jade ink and trimmed the bottom with the Flowers for Every Season 6″ x 6″ DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be available tomorrow as an early release of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog as part of the Butterfly Bouquet promotion. This will also include the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper and the Natural Touch specialty paper.

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Hello Card

Happy Friday! For today’s card I pulled out the fun Stampin’ Up! Snailed It bundle and the pretty Snail Mail designer series paper to make a cheerful Hello card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of this post along with the sizes of card stock used.

I adhered a panel of the Snail Mail designer series paper to a Real Red mat and. I used largest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes dies to cut a Bermuda Bay Circle and the stitched postage stamp from the Snail Dies to cut a Daffodil Delight square, both from the Snail Mail DSP and adhered them to the panel with liquid glue. I cut a Basic White letter using the die from the Snail Dies and stamped the hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It cling stamp set in Bermuda Bay. I cut an envelope from Real Red and adhered the letter to the inside, folded it up and used glue dots to hold the envelope together – so cute!!

I cut another snail from the Snail Mail DSP – the Snail Dies fit some of the images in the DSP pack – and I also cut a backing from Basic White and adhered it to the back to make the snail a bit sturdier. I used my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and my Stamparatus to color just the happy mail portion of the postage stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It stamp set. I had to color the stamp, huff on it, stamp it and repeat a couple of times to get a good image on the Blushing Bride panel. The Stamparatus really helped to get a clean repeated image. I cut it out with the word bubble die from the Snail Dies.

I wrapped the panel a couple of times with Blushing Bride twine and tied a bow. I adhered the letter with glue dots and popped the word bubble and snail on with dimensionals. I finished with some resin hearts, red for the letter and white for the word bubble. I adhered the panel to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I the stamped hearts from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It stamp set in Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay in the top corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Snail Mail designer series paper to the bottom and adhered the panel to a Real Red mat. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snailed It stamp bundle is so cute with the snail and mushroom stamps and dies. And aren’t the dies for the letter and envelope the best!! The Snail Mail designer series paper is so happy and colorful and perfect for making pretty cards for any occasion!

Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering Hello Card

Good morning and welcome to Simple Stamping Saturday! Today’s card uses the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering stamp set to make a simple card with just stamped images. I use four colors of ink, three card stock colors and the beautiful two step stamp set! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I start by stamping the large outline stamp with all the butterflies from the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamp it once on the lower left side of a Basic White panel, ink it up again and stamp it along the bottom. Finally I stamp it a couple of times to fill in the lower left corner. I position my stamps so that I have a graceful curve on the stamped images as contrasted to the white, and it’s easy to do with the photopolymer stamp.

Then comes the two step stamping. There are little leaf stamps that fill in the outline leaves in the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering stamp set, so I stamp all the leaves in Granny Apple Green ink. For the butterflies, each butterfly also has a solid stamp and a detailed stamp. I stamp all the butterflies in Mango Melody ink with the coordinating solid butterfly stamp and I stamp all the detail stamps in Poppy Parade. And my main panel is done – the two step stamp sets make it so easy and there are so many cute ones in the current catalogs, so look for the ‘two step’ designation.

I adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat that is 1/8″ larger on both sides using Stampin’ Seal (but you could also use liquid glue if you prefer). Then I adhere the layered panel to the front of a Mango Melody card base with dimensionals. Dimensionals are foam with adhesive on both sides, so it makes your card kind of 3D. Adding a mat and popping up the stamped panel makes your card extra nice and elegant! The final step is to add the sentiment. I used the sentiment from the A Little Lace stamp set, stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a skinny strip of Mango Melody card stock. I adhere the label to the card front with more dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I carefully position the large stamp to get the large butterfly in the bottom corner of a Basic White panel and stamp it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamp the leaf in the top corner as well and stamp the filler stamps the same was as on the card front, using Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Poppy Parade. I adhere the stamped panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and then adhere both to the inside of the card.

My simple stamping tips for today –

  1. Use two step stamps to easily incorporate your favorite colors
  2. Add a mat to frame your work
  3. Pop your artwork with dimensionals

Keep it simple but elegant and the Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering is a great set to start with two step stamping.

Stampin’ Up! A Touch of Ink for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I have a fun side-fold card made with the pretty Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink photopolymer stamp set. This is a Level 2 Sale A Bration item that is FREE with a $100 order (before taxes and shipping). And it’s full of beautiful two step stamping images with wonderful sentiments! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a theme challenge this week, and it’s to use a Sale A Bration product. So it’s perfect for my card today!

I stamped the outline butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Basic White panel. I applied Balmy Blue ink to the inside of the solid butterfly wings stamp with my sponge dauber and stamped over the outline image. I applied Blackberry Bliss ink to the outside of the solid butterfly wings stamp set with my ink pad, used a sponge dauber to soften the edge and stamped it over the outline image. This gave me the Balmy Blue near the butterfly body fading to a dark Blackberry Bliss at the edge of the wings. Since the stamp is photopolymer, it’s fairly easy to line up. And it overlaps the outline wings image so it’s forgiving (and very artistic!). I fussy cut the butterfly body and wings.

I stamped the outline flower image from the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink stamp set along the bottom and right side of the Basic White panel. I stamped the solid Flower image in Magenta Madness over the outline flowers. I used one of the new Blending Brushes to apply Balmy Blue ink to the remainder of the panel so it would look like the sky. Then I stamped another Outline butterfly on one of the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink – this allowed me to fussy cut the butterfly without legs and antenna. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and adhered the body of the butterfly to the panel. I gently bent the butterfly’s wings after the glue dried.

I applied Stampin’ Seal to the hinge part of the Cinnamon Cider card base. I embossed the two panels of Oh So Ombre 6″ x 6″ designer series paper (another Sale A Bration item that is FREEE with a $50 purchase) with the Scripty embossing folder. I adhered the panels to Basic Black mats and then adhered them to the card front. I used my paper snips to notch the top and bottom of the hinge (I would have preferred to use the Classic Label punch, but I need to get one first), and wrapped a length of Magenta Madness ribbon around the card and tied a knot. I trimmed the ends and adhered the butterfly panel with dimensionals.

I used the Blending Brush to color another Basic White panel Balmy Blue and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink on it in Memento Tuxedo Black. I cut it out with the smallest oval from the Layering Ovals and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider scalloped Oval cut from the smallest scalloped oval die. I adhered the labels to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and finished it with a Magenta Madness enamel dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the outline flower from the Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink along the bottom of a Basic White panel. I stamped the solid flower image over it using Magenta Madness ink. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! A Touch Of Ink stamp set has some really pretty images with two step stamps that are pretty and easy to use. And the Side Fold Card is an easy fun fold – thank you Mary Deatherage for the great tutorial!

Stampin’ Up! Snailed It Mushroom Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I have a sweet Hello card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It bundle and the Snail Mail designer series paper. My inspiration is the cute little mushrooms in this set, can you tell? You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I embossed a Bermuda Bay pane with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder (note that there’s about 1/16″ shrinkage with this embossing folder, so I cut it 1/8″ longer and trim it to size after embossing) and adhered it to the front of a Daffodil Delight card base with liquid glue. I adhered a panel of Snail Mail designer series paper to a Real Red mat and adhered it to the card front.

I cut a Real Red panel with the postage stamp die from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It bundle and adhered another panel of Snail Mail DSP to the front. I stamped the mushrooms from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a Whisper White panel and colored it with Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the postage stamp background with dimensionals.

I stamped hello sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snailed It stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a small Blushing Bride panel and cut it out with the small note card die from the Snail Dies. I adhered it to the back of the postage stamp and adhered it all to the card with dimensionals. I finished the front with three Black Matte dots.

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of the mushroom Snail Mail DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I cut another mushroom from Blushing Bride using the small mushroom die and adhered it to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Bermuda Bay mat and then adhered it all to the inside o the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snailed It bundle is so cute!! I have enjoyed playing with the snails for my Valentines (with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit) and the mushrooms today. Next I need to play with the little letters – there are so many ways to be creative with this sweet bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Today I used the Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always stamp set with the True Love designer series paper to make a fancy hello card. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using. Can you guess which additional color I chose?

I was also inspired by the sketch in CAS(E) this Sketch #403:

I started by stamping the flowers and leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I stamped 2 large flowers, 2 small flowers, 4 large leaves and 7 small leaves. I colored the flowers with the Magenta Madness and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with the dark Old Olive Stampin Blend. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies.

I adhered a strip of the striped True Love designer series paper to a Basic White mat and then to a panel of the floral True Love DSP. I adhered the panel to a Basic White mat and popped it on the front of a Basic Black card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tropical stamp set on a strip of Whisper White and cut it out with the Ornate Frames die. I adhered it to the card front with glue dots and accented it with a Magenta Madness enamel dot.

I arranged the Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always flowers on the card front and adhered the two in the background with glue dots and the top flower with dimensionals. I tucked the leaves under the flower petals, adhering them with glue dots. I brushed clear Wink of Stella on the flower petals to add some shimmer.

I adhered a strip of the floral True Love designer series paper to the bottom of a Basic White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card. I arranged the last leaves and flower in the bottom corner and adhered them with glue dots.

The Stampin’ Up! Forever and Always bundle has the beautiful, bold flowers along with the words and sentiments and it goes beautifully with the True Love DSP. It’s been a while since I’ve used the Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends, but I’m really with how well they look on these bold flowers. What do you think?

Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful Hello Card

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing the first in a series of cards that I made using the sweet Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful photopolymer stamp set. Today’s card is one that I CASE’d from the Aug-Sep Mini Catalog, but I did make some modifications. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Emboss a Gray Granite panel with the Scripty 3D embossing folder. Lightly sponge Gray Granite ink across the letters to emphasize the contrast and adhere it to a Pool Party Mat. Pop it on a Gray Granite card base in the lower right corner.

Stamp the tree from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful photopolymer stamp in Gray Granite ink on the sides of a Whisper White panel. Stamp the bird house hanging from the branch on the right tree in Gray Granite ink. Stamp the dots in the tree tops using Bumblebee ink after stamping off once and stamp the sentiment in Pool Party ink.

Adhere a length of folded Pool Party sheer ribbon behind the top left corner one the panel and adhere the panel to the embossed layer in the lower right corner. Stamp two bird houses from the Stampin’ Up! Life Is Beautiful stamp set in pool party ink on Whisper White and fussy cut them out. Pop one on the card front with a piece of dimensional covering the stamped birdhouse. Adhere sequins from the Whale of a Time and Woven Threads sequins to the tree tops.

Emboss a strip of Gray Granite with the Scripty 3D embossing folder and lightly sponge the letters with Gray Granite ink. Adhere it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Stamp the birdhouse from the Stampin’ Up! Life is Beautiful stamp set in gray granite ink in the top corner and adhere the Pool Party fussy cut birdhouse over the stamped birdhouse. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card.


The offset placement of the main image in this card is really different and what made me want to CASE this card. There is so much inspiration in the catalogs and ideas for things that you may not have tried. So look carefully at the examples and

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Hello Fall Card

Good Morning! Here’s a Fall hello card made with the pretty leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle, the Playful Alphabet Dies and the wonderful Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I cut a panel of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper with the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it to a Pretty Peacock Mat. I cut three each of the F-A-L-L letters from the Playful Alphabet Dies and adhered them together so that each letter was three deep. I stamped the hello sentiment from the Best Year cling stamp set in Pretty Peacock ink on a strip of Bumblebee card stock and cut it out with the small long stitched rectangle die using the two step die cutting method.

I stamped six maple leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze card stock and cut them out with the coordinating punch. I cut a panel of vellum with the Stitched Rectangles dies. I adhered the letters leaves and label to the vellum panel.

I adhered the vellum panel to the DSP panel with glue dots placed behind the letters, leaves and label. I made a loopy bow with Linen Thread and adhered it to the label. I finished the panel with three Bumblebee enamel dots and popped the panel to the front of a Bumblebee card base with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the Plaid Tidings DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the last three of the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn punched maple leaves. I added a Pretty Peacock mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love using vellum on cards and I also love die cut words, so this card combines two of my favorites with the pretty Plaid Tidings paper for a card to welcome Fall!
