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! Dainty Delight Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Have you seen all the beautiful floral stamp sets in the new January – April Mini Catalog? One of my favorites is the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight bundle and it’s because it’s not only pretty, but so versatile. For today’s card, which I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon, I stamped and colored one of the pretty images and embossed it for texture and I did not use a single one of the beautiful dies! 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 a panel of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of a So Saffron card base with liquid glue. I stamped the pretty flower branch from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight cling stamp set three times in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic white panel and colored it with light Calypso Coral, light Daffodil Delight and light Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.

I embossed the stamped panel with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Crumb Cake mat with liquid glue. I adhered the layered panel to the card front with liquid glue.

I wrapped the card front twice with Linen Thread and made a loopy bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set on a Crumb Cake panel in Evening Evergreen ink. I trimmed the end and adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three brushed gold butterflies.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower branch from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I colored the flowers with the same Stampin’ Blends as the flowers on the front and trimmed the bottom with a strip of Fancy Flora 6″ x 6″ DSP before adhering the panel to the inside of the card.

The stamped flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Dainty Delight stamp set are so delicate and look so pretty when stamped and colored. These yellow flowers remind me of a country stroll on a sunny Summer day – hopefully those days are not too far away!

Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! One of the pretty Valentine bundles in the upcoming January – April 2023 Mini Catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet bundle. This bundle has a pretty two step photopolymer stamp set with a wonderful coordinating punch and I used it to make a Valentine during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. This bundle along with other items in the Country Floral Lane Suite will be available on January 5, 2023 when the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog goes live. You can find the currently available 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 cut a panel of the new Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ designer series paper with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to a Sweet Sorbet mat with liquid glue. I used the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet punch to punch the two hearts and leaves from sheet of Country Floral Lane designer series paper. I punched another large heart from Basic White and adhere it to the back of the Sweet Sorbet heart punched from the DSP. I adhered the leaves to the bottom of the large heart and the small heart on top using glue dots.

I folded a length of Burlap stitched ribbon (available January 5) and adhered it to the stitched rectangle with glue dots. I drew a stem with my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write marker and fussy cut it with my paper snips. I adhered it to the stitched rectangle and ribbon with liquid glue. I adhered the punched heart ‘flower’ on the stem with glue dots and dimensionals. I adhered the layered stitched rectangle to the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink on a strip of Basic White and cut it out with the small long skinny stitched rectangle die. I adhered it to the card with glue dots and dimensionals and finished the card with Fine Sparkle gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the large heart from the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink in the top corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the leaf in Mink Macaron and stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake. I stamped the little heart in Petal Pink (don’t forget to clean off the Sweet Sorbet ink first) next to the sentiment and trimmed the bottom in Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love that the Stampin’ Up! Country Bouquet Punch cuts out some of the images in the Country Floral Lane DSP! And I love the asymmetric, casual design of the hearts. It’s very refreshing and fun! Here’s a picture of the bundle with my card and the two packs of DSP that are in the new Suite.

There are so many pretty sentiments in the bundle and I love the two step large floral heart image where you can stamp flowers in one color and stamp the leaves in another. The suite also has another bundle (which I didn’t get yet) with more flowers and Love themed layered word dies – I love word dies!! That’s next on my shopping list!!

Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! One of the pretty new bundles in the upcoming mini catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay bundle. I used the bundle with the gorgeous By The Bay designer series paper to make a thank you card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. These items will be available on January 5, 2023 when the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog goes live You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered a panel of the new By The Bay specialty designer series paper to the front of a Starry Sky card base with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay cling stamp set using Starry Sky ink on a Basic White strip and cut it out with the largest Stylish Shapes banner die. I adhered it to the card front with liquid glue.

I inked up the large clamshell die from the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay dies in Versamark ink. The idea is to get the ink on just the raised circles so these will hold gold embossing powder. I had to practice a couple to times to get the right inking technique. If I press the die too hard on the ink pad, I get ink on the flat sections of the die, but if I press too lightly, I don’t get enough ink on the raised sections and it won’t hold the embossing powder. I feel that it’s better to err on the side of too much ink, because it just looks like the shell is a bit sandy. After you ink up the die, carefully put it on a panel of Sahara Sand card stock and cut it out (be careful not to move it once you place it on the card stock). Sprinkle gold embossing powder on the die cut, covering the debossed dots. Shake off the excess and heat the powder with a heat tool until it’s bright and shiny. Fold the clam shell on the score lines

I cut a Mint Macaron panel with two of the seagrass dies using the Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay dies and adhered them to the label with glue dots. I adhered a folded length of Petal Party ribbon to the label with glue dots and adhered the folded die cut clam shell on top with dimensionals. I adhered one of the new iridescent flat pearls in the open clam shell and adhered some sea glass embellishments on the label.

When you open the clamshell, you see the pearl – how fun!

For the inside of the card, I adhered a strip of By The Bay specialty DSP to the bottom of a Basic White panel. I cut panel of Mint Macaron with the small sea grass die and adhered it with a glue dot. I cut clam shells from Brushed Gold foil, Sahara Sand and Petal Pink and adhered them to the panel with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The pretty Stampin’ Up! Seaside Bay bundle is a wonderful nautical set and will go well with other current and retired ocean themed sets. I can’t wait to play with the bird stamps next. Here are the stamp set and dies that make up the bundle:

And here is the By the Bay 6″ x 6″ specialty designer series paper. There are 48 sheets in the pack, four each of 12 double sided designs. And one side has either gold foil or iridescent gloss designs. It’s really beautiful!

Here are all the products in the By The Bay suite, including the ribbon and flat iridescent pearls. All of these products will be available on January 5, 2023 when the upcoming January-April 2023 Mini Catalog opens for ordering.

Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! For my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon, I made a fun fold Christmas card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness bundle. It’s a simple Z-Fold card with panels made from the Scalloped Contours dies. The Sweetest Christmas designer series paper was used for the background and I used the dies to create my ornaments and Christmas Tree branch! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered the striped Sweetest Christmas designer series paper to the front and back panels of the Real Red card base and the Garden Green panel to the middle section. I cut two scalloped rectangles using the second largest rectangle in the Scalloped Contours dies from Basic White card stock. I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness stamp set in Real Red ink in the lower right corner of the front panel and in the center of the inside panel.

I adhered the front panel to the short striped DSP front part of the card base with Tear & Tape adhesive. I used liquid glue to adhere the inside panel, lining it up with the top panel so it’s hidden when the card is closed. I cut the large branch from the Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness bundle from Garden Green card card stock and adhered it to the card front with small dots of liquid glue. I put adhesive sheets on the back of Brushed Gold foil before die cutting the two ornaments. I pulled off the adhesive sheet backing and adhered the ornaments to the card.

I put adhesive sheets on the back of the Real Red Glimmer paper and cut two bow ornament hangers. I peeled off the backing and adhered the hangers to the card front. I trimmed the bottoms of the hangers as need so they would land in the the top of the ornaments. I finished the card with rhinestone gems, a large one next to the front sentiment and smaller ones in the Christmas Tree branches.

The Z-Fold card is really pretty when opened! Instead of putting a panel on the right, you can also put the ‘writing’ part of the card on the center panel and extend the front design to the back panel! It’s pretty versatile in addition to being simple to make.

The Stampin’ Up! Decorated With Happiness bundle reminds me of vintage glass Christmas Tree ornaments from the Sixties. And the lines of the die cut ornaments have a modern feel that was also popular during that time. I hope you enjoy playing with this bundle as much as I do!

Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! One of the prettiest packs of designer series paper currently available is the Splendid Day specialty DSP with it’s colored foils and floral prints. I wanted to use it for a special card and so I paired it with the beautiful sentiments and label dies from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints bundle. And then I realized that the flower from the new Framed Florets bundle went perfect with the DSP, so I pulled it in as well. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I embossed a panel of Petal Pink card stock with the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Petal Pink card base. I adhered panels of the beautiful Splendid Day specialty designer series paper to a Petal Pink panel with Stampin’ Seal. I cut a Basic White and Rose Gold foil panel with the leaf sprigs from the Splendid Stems dies (I cut two from the Rose Gold foil, saving one for the inside panel) and adhered them to the layered DSP panel with glue dots.

I folded a short length of Rose Gold and White striped ribbon and adhered it together with glue dots. I adhered it next to the sprigs on the layered DSP panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with copper embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut the sentiment out with the pretty label die. I adhered it to the panel with dimensionals over the ribbon and sprigs. I adhered the panel to the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped two flowers from the Framed Florets photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled them with copper embossing powder. I shook off the excess powder and heated the flowers with my heat tool until they were bright and shiny. I cut them out with the coordinating die and saved one for the inside of the card. I adhered the second one to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots and finished the card with three champagne rhinestone jewels.

For the inside of the card, I inked up the large fern from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints stamp set in Petal Pink ink and stamped it off. Then I stamped it in the corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered the Rose Gold foil die cut sprig over the fern with dots of liquid glue. I adhered a strip of Splendid Day specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered the second flower on top with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The gorgeous floral foil from the Splendid Day specialty designer series paper works well with the Rose Gold foil, copper embossing powder and rose gold striped ribbon. And the beautiful sentiments and label die from the Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints bundle are the perfect finish. Foils and embossing are easy ways to make an extra special card for any extra special occasion or loved one.

Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle will be available tomorrow when the Fitting Florets Promotion begins. The bundle is an early release from the upcoming January – June 2023 Mini Catalog and the promotion will also include products that are available for a limited time, including the pretty Fitting Florets designer series paper and the Framed and Festive cling stamp set. And this is all perfect for making Christmas cards. I used both of these products with the beautiful oval frames from the new bundle for a Double Easel fun fold Christmas card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered panels of the beautiful Christmas themed Fitting Florets DSP to the sections of the Real Red easel section before adhering the easel section to the front of a Soft Succulent card base with liquid glue. I cut the large oval frame from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle and stamped the Framed and Festive sentiment in Real Red ink on the oval (save the frame for the next project). I cut another large oval frame from Brushed Gold foil and a small oval from Real Red card stock. I placed the stamped large oval inside the large frame and adhered the small frame on top with liquid glue. I cut anther small oval from Basic White and adhered the frame and oval to the back of the large frame with liquid glue. This gives a nice finished look to the back of the large oval frame.

I adhered the frame to the front of the easel with liquid glue applied to the lower section of the oval. I stamped the double flower from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets photopolymer stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White. I colored it with So Saffron, Real Red and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and cut it out with the coordinating die. I cut the large greenery sprig die from Soft Succulent and two of the small detailed leaves from Evening Evergreen. I adhered the large greenery and detailed leaves to the frame with glue dots and the flowers with dimensionals.

I adhered white dots to the berry parts of the greenery and finished the front with three of the new adhesive gold swirls that will be available tomorrow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen in the corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the little leaf pair in the top corner in Evening Evergreen and the sentiment from the Framed and Festive stamp set in the center in Evening Evergreen. I colored the flowers and leaves with Soft Succulent, Real red and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends and trimmed the bottom with Fitting Florets DSP. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The beautiful Fitting Florets designer series paper and the Framed and Festive stamp set will only be available during the promotion period that begins tomorrow. But the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Framed Florets bundle will be available afterwards when the new January – June 2023 Mini Catalog goes live. It’s sure to be a favorite!

Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow cling stamp set has the prettiest Christmas sentiments and paired with pretty designer series paper make easy, elegant Christmas cards. I paired one of the sentiments with the pretty Boughs of Holly DSP for today. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered a panel of Boughs of Holly designer series paper to a Brushed Gold foil mat and then adhered it to the front of a Real Red card base with liquid glue.

I stamped the pretty sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until it was bright and shiny and cut it out with the second smallest Scalloped Contours dies.

I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and finished it with gold pearls. I tied a length of gold trim around the fold and made a loopy bow to finish the card.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow stamp set in Sahara Sand on a Basic White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Brightest Glow stamp set also has an elegant set of label and background dies that you should check out. And don’t forget that pairing a pretty sentiment with a pretty paper is a great way to make quick and easy beautiful cards.

Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest designer series paper is a really pretty and versatile Fall themed paper and I’ve recently seen cards featuring the designs colored with blends! Coloring DSP is always fun and I decided to use this technique for today’s card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

I adhered a panel of Crushed Curry Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Crushed Curry Card base with liquid glue. I cut a Mossy Meadow panel of the DSP with the third largest stitched rectangle die and adhered it to the card front on an angle.

I colored the veggie panel of the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSP with Stampin’ Blends – light Daffodil Delight on the Crushed Curry squashes, light Soft Suede on the acorns and stems, light Old Olive on the Mossy Meadow squashes and oak leaves, light Pumpkin Pie on the Cajun Craze pumpkins and light Fresh Freesia on the Merry Merlot leaves. I cut the panel with the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to the card front on the opposite angle with liquid glue.

I wrapped the card with black and white gingham ribbon and made a bow. I stamped the sentiment from the Ringed with Nature photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Crushed Curry and cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and finished it with a black matte dot.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the squiggly from the Hello Harvest cling stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink in the corner of a Basic White panel. I colored a strip of Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSP using Stampin’ Blends like the front panel and adhere it to the bottom of the inside panel before adhering it to the inside of the card.

Here is the card I made during my video with my sample card. For my sample, I reversed the Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest DSPs and used a Mossy Meadow card base with an Old Olive label. I love those pretty veggie images and I love the softer tone that you get by coloring the white. Plus it’s easy and fun.

Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Oktoberfest Card with Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Here is the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You Oktoberfest card that I made during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon. Oktoberfest is a great excuse to gather with friends over beer and German food (which I love!) in the Fall and the Brewed For You bundle is perfect for this occasion! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

You can watch my Facebook live from yesterday afternoon HERE. I have also posted it to my YouTube Channel and you can view it HERE.

Adhere a panel of Boughs of Holly designer series paper to a Soft Suede mat with liquid glue. Adhere a strip of Cajun Craze Rustic Harvest DSP across the panel with liquid glue. Cut a panel of Layering Designs vellum with the largest circle die from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the vellum to the panel with Stampin’ Seal. Adhere the panel to the front of a Cajun Craze Card base with dimensionals.

Stamp two of the mugs from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You photopolymer stamp set in Gray Granite on Basic White. Use the mug fill stamp to add Crushed Curry to the middle of each mug. Stamp the mug foam stamp twice in Gray Granite on Basic White. Cut out the mugs and foam with the coordinating dies. Use dots of liquid glue to adhere the foam to the back of the mugs. Adhere the top mug to the card with glue dots. Adhere the second mug to the card with dimensionals.

Stamp the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts cling stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Gray Granite card stock. Cut it out with the short thick banner die from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere the label to the card front with dimensionals and finish with a small rustic dot.

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Basic White panel. Stamp the large jug next to the sentiment in Gray Granite ink. Trim the bottom of the panel with a strip of Rustic Harvest DSP and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Brewed For You bundle is perfect for making masculine cards, but I think that Oktoberfest can also be enjoyed by us gals! But if there’s a man in your life with a Fall birthday, this is the perfect bundle to pull out for a birthday card!
