Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove bundle is a fun bundle with a wonderful woodsy frame die cut and pretty scenic stamps. I paired it with the pretty Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to make this little wooded scene inspirational 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 Pear Pizzazz card stock to the back of a greenery panel of Beauty of the Earth DSP with liquid glue and cut it out with the left side of the wooded frame die cut from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove Bundle. I wanted to pop up the die cut frame with dimensionals and needed a double layer to make it stiffer.

I stamped the long ground stamp with shrubs from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove cling stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a blue sky panel of the Beauty of the Earth DSP. I sponged Cinnamon Cider ink on the ground with a sponge dauber, and it nicely covered the blue sky, so my ground looked realistic. I stamped the deer in Crumb Cake on Basic White and fussy cut it out. There is a die that works nicely, but I didn’t want the white edge for such a small focal piece. I adhered the deer to the stamped panel with liquid glue and adhered the die cut wooded frame with dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso mat.

I adhered a strip of wood grained Beauty of the Earth DSP to the front of a Crumb Cake card base and adhered the little scene with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove stamp set in Mossy Meadow on Pear Pizzazz and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered the label to the frame with glue dots and finished the card front with adhesive pebbles.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove stamp set in Mossy Meadow on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom of the panel with a strip of wood grained Beauty of the Earth DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card.

The wooded frame die from the Stampin’ Up! Grassy Grove bundle is so neat! But the other scenic stamps are also pretty and the sentiments are sweet. And it goes beautifully with the Beauty of the Earth DSP! The different prints give your project texture and interest and are perfect for the natural woods theme of the bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration Birthday Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle is an early release from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and boy is is gorgeous! I made this simple birthday card to introduce you to the bundle and you can check out all the details of the promotion because this bundle is available today! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used sponge daubers to apply Pacific Point and Night of Navy inks to the large wave stamp in the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration cling stamp set. I applied Pacific Point to the entire stamp and Night of Navy to the bottom and stamped the image on a Basic White panel. I used sponge daubers to apply additional ink to the wave, Bermuda Bay to the top part of the wave, blending into Pacific Point and Night of Navy towards the bottom.

I used another sponge dauber to lightly ink the sky with Balmy Blue ink. I stamped the bird from the Stampin’ Up! Waves of Inspiration stamp set in Basic Gray three times in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat. I cut the clouds from Basic White using the Waves Dies and adhered them to the panel with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy on a strip of Balmy Blue and cut it out with the label from the Waves Dies. I looped Linen thread through the ends of the label and adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I pulled the linen thread around to the back of the card and secured the ends in the back with tape. I accented the label with a rhinestone and adhered the panel to the front of a Balmy Blue card base with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the wave again in Pacific Point on a Basic White strip. I used sponge daubers to apply Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy inks to the strip so that it would resemble the ocean on the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration stamp set in Night of Navy ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the bird in Basic Gray and adhered the ocean strip to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

This is just a simple example of using the pretty Stampin’ Up! Waves Of Inspiration bundle for a birthday card. Be on the lookout for more cards made with this gorgeous bundle and the other exclusive items in the Waves of the Ocean Collection.

Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront Happy Day Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is another one of the photopolymer watercolor stamp sets that create wonderful landscapes. This one has some angled stamps that are wonderful for shore scenes. There are no sentiments in the set, so I used the Many Messages cling stamp and Messages die for my sentiment – the scene is perfect for a smaller sentiment. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered three strips of In Good Taste rustic wood grained designer series paper to the front of a Coastal Cabana card base. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede with the Macrame embossing folder and adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the angled ocean stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Pacific Point on a Basic White panel. I stamped the sky stamp from the stamp set in Balmy Blue on top of the ocean and the angled shoreline in Sahara Sand under the ocean. I stamped the spatter in Sahara Sand over the sand and I stamped the sea oats in Soft Suede. Finally, I stamped the birds from the Mountain Air photopolymer stamp set in Basic Gray in the sky. I adhered the panel to a Pacific Point mat and wrapped a length of linen thread around the panel and made a bow.

I popped the stamped panel onto the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Soft Suede on Balmy Blue card stock and cut it out with the Messages die. I adhered it to the card front with dimensionals over the linen thread.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sea oats from the Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set in Soft Suede on a Basic White panel. I adhered another strip of In Good Taste DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Oceanfront stamp set is fun for making artistic ocean landscapes. And I love the little sentiment from the Many Messages stamp because any day by the shore is a happy day!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern Hello Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set and the coordinating Forever Flourishing dies are some of the prettiest leaf sets with the beautiful Distinktive stamps, gorgeous sentiments and wonderfully detailed dies. And they go beautifully with the special Ever Eden specialty designer series paper that is available now as part of the Eden’s Garden Collection. So I paired these products for a simple hello card for 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 Ever Eden specialty designer series paper to the front of an Evening Evergreen card base with liquid glue. I cut two of the pretty Eden dies border from Brushed Gold foil and adhered them to the back of another panel of Ever Eden specialty DSP before adhering it to the card front.

I cut the large fern from the Forever Flourishing dies using Soft Succulent cotton paper and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern cling stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Messages die.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and decorated it with the beautiful Garden Gems and adhered a gold trim bow to the bottom of the fern stem with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf clusters from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on the bottom corner of a Basic White panel I adhered a strip of Ever Eden specialty DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Don’t you think the Stampin’ Up! Forever Fern stamp set goes well with the pretty Ever Eden specialty DSP? You have similar shading in the stamped images and gentle flowing movement in the leaf sprigs – I think they’re wonderful together! And the touches of gold are so elegant! So be sure to check it out!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest is one of my favorites from the current July – December Mini Catalog, so I was happy to use it for another fall Thank You card. And I decided to combine it with the quaint Harvest Meadow and rustic In Good Taste designer series papers for a sweet country look. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by the Nature’s Beauty Color Challenge at Sunday Stamps SSC269:

I adhered a panel of Harvest Meadows designer series paper to a Misty Moonlight mat and popped it on the front of a Gray Granite Card base with dimensionals. I cut a stitched rectangle using the rustic wood grain In Good Taste designer series paper, adhered it to a Basic Black mat and then adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the pretty coneflowers from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Basic White and colored it with Stampin’ Blends. I used Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cinnamon Cider and Soft Suede. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die and popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black on Old Olive and cut it out with the small label die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and glue dots. I made a triple loopy bow with Linen thread and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the card front with champagne rhinestone gems.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the coneflower stamp with Gray Granite ink and stamped off twice before stamping the image on a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with the Harvest Meadow DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The beautiful coneflowers from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Harvest stamp set are really fun to color and they always come out beautiful! Thanks for stopping by!

For today’s card, I made a Fall hello card with one of the little guys and used and embossed Pumpkin Pie panel as the background and I just love how it came out. 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 panel of Pumpkin Pie with the Bark 3D embossing folder (this embossing folder shrinks a little, so I embossed a panel 1/8″ wider and cut it to size after embossing). I adhered a strip of Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front and adhered the panel to an Early Espresso mat. I wrapped it with Crumb Cake baker’s Twine and made a bow, then adhered it to the front of a Sahara Sand card base.

I stamped the outline squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso on a Basic White panel and stamped the filler in Sahara Sand. I am amazed at how wonderful this two step process turns out! I stamped the bottom of the acorn in stamped off Cinnamon Cider and the acorn top in Soft Suede. I stamped the tree branch in Soft Suede and inked the leaves in bumblebee and used a sponge dauber to add touches of Old Olive (I cleaned off the stamp each time to keep my Bumblebee ink pad green-free). After all the leaves were stamped, I stamped the leaf veins in Bumblebee. I cut the little guy out with the largest Layering Circle die and cut out a scalloped circle from Early Espresso to adhere to the back.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand and hand trimmed a banner flag end with my paper snips. I adhered it to an Early Espresso mat and trimmed the banner end before adhering it to the squirrel with glue dots. I adhered the little squirrel to the card front with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped a couple of tree branches in Soft Suede and a bunch of falling leaves in Bumblebee and Old Olive on a Basic White panel, just like the front. And of course I had to stamp the cute little sentiment from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso! I trimmed the bottom with Beauty of the Earth DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The little squirrel from the Stampin’ Up! Nuts About Squirrels stamp set is so cute and mischievous! It’s perfect for sending some cheerful Fall greetings to, well everyone! The two step stamping process works wonderfully for the images, but you can also color these little guys with markers or watercolors

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! The theme for this month’s hop is “Giving Thanks” and I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle to make a Thanksgiving card. 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 Very Vanilla with the Timber 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Merry Merlot mat with liquid glue. I adhered the embossed pane to the front of a Merry Merlot card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the label die from the Tasteful Labels dies. I cut the larger label from Merry Merlot and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon cider and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used the Intricate Leaves dies from the bundle to cut out the remaining detailed leaves from Crumb Cake, Soft Succulent and Pear Pizzazz card stock and arranged them cascading down the side of the card.

I adhered the leaves to the card front with liquid glue, and adhered the layered label over the leaves with dimensionals. I made a triple bow with linen thread and adhered it under the label with a glue dot. I finished the card front with three brushed copper metallic dots.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set around the bottom and top of a Very Vanilla panel in Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider. I stamped the sentiment from the Sparkle of the Season stamp set in Early Espresso next to the leaves and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

Every card I see made with the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is beautiful, and the bundle is really easy to play with! There are no sentiments, but the combination of the artistic stamps and detailed dies is perfect for creating all kinds of fall masterpieces!

Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods Thank You Card

Good Morning! Have you seen the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods photopolymer stamp set? I finally got a chance to play with it this week and I love it!! I have seen several cards with a beautiful sunset and I wanted to make one and I am so happy with how it came out and how easy it was to do! 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 As You See It Challenge #260 – Perpendicular for my card design:

I started by using Blending Brushes to apply So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze inks on a Basic White panel, blending them darker towards the bottom of the panel. Then I blended Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Misty Moonlight to create the sky. This was so pretty and so easy! I stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set twice across the panel in Soft Suede to create the woods and cut it out with the third largest Stitched Rectangles die.

I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set in Pumpkin Pie and stamped the ground in Evening Evergreen. Note that I masked the tree from the second stamping each time so the ground would be behind the trees. I adhered the panel to a Sahara Sand mat. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Sahara Sand strip and adhered it to a strip of Sahara Sand Tidings of Christmas DSP. I finished the panel with a small Cajun Craze leaf die cut from the Intricate Leaves dies and a Linen Thread bow.

I embossed a Soft Suede panel with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the side with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the front of a Sahara Sand card base with liquid glue and adhered the art panel on top with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the last tree from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set in Soft Suede on the side of a Basic White panel. I stamped some Pumpkin Pie leaves by the tree and in the top corner and adhered another strip of Christmas Tidings DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I drove on some of the country roads by my house this morning and saw so many of the trees starting to change color, so the pretty Fall Foliage is on it’s way! The Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set perfectly captures that look and feel. And this stamp set has some of the most beautiful sentiments!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Thinking of You Card

Good Monday Morning! It was such a somber weekend, I hope you had an opportunity to have a little fun. Today’s I have a simple card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship bundle and the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Of Friendship photopolymer stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White and cut it out with the long skinny label die from the Beautiful Trees dies. I wrapped it with a length of linen thread and tied a bow on the end. I embossed a small panel of Misty Moonlight with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered the label to the embossed panel with dimensionals.

I adhered a small strip of the wood grain Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to a larger panel of DSP with liquid glue and adhered the panel to a Misty Moonlight mat. I adhered the label to the panel and popped the panel on the front of a Merry Merlot card base.

I cut a small Cinnamon Cider panel with the small bird die and adhered one of the birds to the card front on top of the label.


For the inside of the card, I stamped the tree trunk from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the side of a Basic White panel in stamped off Early Espresso ink. I stamped the detailed tree top in stamped off Misty Moonlight, Merry Merlot and full strength Crumb Cake, so that it would have a multi-color look. I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink and adhered the other bird to the tree. 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.

The Beauty of the Earth designer series paper is so pretty and peaceful, so it doesn’t need much for a pretty card. I hope you like it and I hope you have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! Can you believe that it’s September already! Since it is, I had to get the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle to make fall cards. Boy, am I glad I did the leaves really are gorgeous and the dies are beautiful too! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week for our Blog Hop and here’s the pretty card sketch we’re using:

I adhered a panel of the woodgrain Beauty of the Earth designer series paper to the front of an Early Espresso Card base. I stamped the wood grain stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves cling stamp set in PoolParty ink all over a Basic White panel. I stamped both in full strength and stamped off so that it fades in and out. Then I randomly stamped the leaves in Bumblebee, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider – I love how the leaves have speckles around them!

The Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set has two spatter stamps – one with large spatters and the one I used, with fine spatters. I inked the small spatter stamp with Early Espresso ink and stamped around the panel, both full strength and stamped off until I got the look I wanted. I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to an Early Espresso mat and then to the card front.

I cut the large detailed leaf from the Intricate Leaves dies from the Sale A Bration Be Dazzle specialty paper and colored it with the Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend. I cut two smaller detailed leaves from Bumblebee and Early Espresso and adhered the leaves to the card with glue dots. I adhered a bow made with a double strand of Linen Thread and stamped the sentiment from the Love of Leaves photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Pool Party. I trimmed the ends of the sentiment with the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I finished it with a copper Brushed Metallic dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in stamped off Cinnamon Cider on a Basic White panel. I stamped and embossed a strip of Basic White just like the art panel on the card front and adhered it to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Leaves bundle is a wonderful bundle for making fall cards. The stamped images are so realistic and beautiful and the dies are fabulous. This is one of my favorite leaf stamps of all time!
