Stampin’ Up! Banner Year Happy Haunting Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Halloween card made with the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Last week I made a pair of Fall cards with this bundle and today’s card uses another technique for designing and stamping your own ‘designer series paper’ for a card background. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find the YouTube video here.

I planned a little rectangle of images from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year photopolymer stamp set and the colors that I wanted to use. In order to fill all the spaces, I needed to put a spider in the spider web, so I used in the spider from the Celebration Tidings stamp set. Then I just stamped the pattern in a row. I shifted the pattern and stamped the next row and repeated until I covered the panel. I used Rich Razzleberry, Smoky Slate, Bumblebee, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty Peacock and Memento Tuxedo Black inks on a Whisper White panel.

I trimmed my stamped panel and adhered it to a Basic Black mat. I colored a length of white crinkle seam binding ribbon with dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend and wrapped it around the panel, tying a bow. I cut the spider web from Smoky Slate card stock using the Peek A Hoot Dies and adhered it to the panel with a glue dot. I trimmed the ends of my labels with the Banners Pick A Punch and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered the label to the mat and popped it on the panel with dimensionals. I finished the panel with three iridescent pearls and popped it on the front of a Rich Razzleberry card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the images similar to the card front on a Whisper White panel. I added the Boo sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The cute images in the Stampin’ Up! Banner Year stamp set are perfect for stamping all over a sheet of card stock to make your own custom designer series paper for a One Sheet Wonder project for all the upcoming holidays!  The little images are also great for accenting labels or tags that go on other projects.

Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. This is such a simple card, but is amazing because of the touches of silver foil card stock. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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. Note that in the video, I did a lot of prep work ahead of time to move things along:

I will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can now view it here.

I embossed a panel of Seaside Spray card stock with the Winter Snow embossing folder and adhered it to a silver foil mat. I wrapped a length of Seaside Spray metallic ribbon around the panel about 1″ from the bottom. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Cherish the Season cling stamp set using Versamark ink on a strip of Seaside Spray. I sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with a die from the Ornate Labels Dies.

I cut out the snowflakes from silver foil using the So Many Snowflakes Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle. I cut one of the large snowflakes and two of the small snowflakes. I also cut two of the smallest snowflakes from the Christmas Layers Dies. I placed the label on the ribbon and arranged the silver foil die cut snowflakes on the panel, adhering them with liquid glue. I adhered the label with glue dots and added some rhinestones.

I stamped the sentiment from the Cherish the Season stamp set in Seaside Spray ink and stamped some snowflakes in Seaside Spray ink around a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle is so versatile for creating snowflake cards for Christmas and for the winter with intricate die cuts that make beautiful snowflakes and other die cuts that cut out stamped snowflakes! The hex frame is also perfect for making a shaker card – you can see one that I made a while back here. Click the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Coming Home Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Christmas card made with the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. For today’s card, I used felt for the snow! I have wanted to play with felt for a long time and I finally made it happen with this card! You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can find it here.

I started by cutting a 1-3/4″ x 5″ panel of while felt from the Festive Felt sheet combo pack with the rolling hillside die from the Home Together Dies. I was really pleased at how easy it was to cut!! I also cut a panel of Whisper White to match and adhered the felt to the front. This gives me a bright white snow bank as my sample card was adhered to the DSP directly and looks a little dingy.

I stamped all my die cuts in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I stamped 4 houses, three large pine trees, two small pine trees and a wreath from the Stampin’ Up! Coming Home photopolymer stamp set. I colored them all with Stampin’ Blends – Old Olive, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Soft Suede. I stamped the bare tree and adhered the snowbank to the Trimming the Town DSP and then the DSP to a Whisper White mat. I tucked the small pine tree under the snow bank, stamped the smoke and adhered the large house with dimensionals and liquid glue.

I adhered the two smaller houses together with liquid glue and popped them on the larger house with dimensionals. I added the wreath with dimensionals and the two large pine trees with dimensionals and liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Tuxedo Black in on a strip of Whisper White. I trimmed the end with the new Banners Pick a Punch and adhered it to the front with liquid glue. I finished the label with a red rhinestone. I popped the little scene onto the front of a Real Red card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Toile Christmas stamp set in real red ink and adhered the last two trees to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Coming Home bundle has so many cute elements to make different kinds of houses for holidays as well as to congratulate someone who got a new home or welcome someone who just moved in next door. Click the image below to get the full details of this bundle in my Online Store.

Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Fall card made with the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Actually, I used three different stamp sets for this card. I pulled in the pumpkins from the Gather Together stamp set and the oak leaves and acorns from the Beautiful Autumn bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card 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 will also edit and post a concise tutorial on my YouTube Channel, so look for that soon. You can now find my edited YouTube video here.

I started by stamping the sign using the boards and sentiment stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand and Soft Suede inks on Whisper White. I cut out the sign with a thin white outline. I stamped the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White and colored it with Mossy Meadow and Pumpkin Pie Stampin Blends. I fussy cut the pumpkins with my paper snips. I also used the Gathered Leaves Dies to cut a small embossed maple leaf from Pear Pizzazz card stock.

I stamped six oak leaves from the Beautiful Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Bumblebee card stock and punched them out with the coordinating punch from the Autumn Punch Pack. I stamped three acorns from the same set in Soft Suede ink on Sahara Sand card stock and punched them out. I die cut the wreath from Cinnamon Cider Card stock using the Wreath Builder Dies. I embossed a panel of Soft Suede card stock with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Cinnamon Cider mat. I adhered the wreath to the embossed panel using liquid glue and adhered linen thread using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the die cut leaf with glue dots so that it covered the Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the pumpkins together with liquid glue and popped them on the wreath with dimensionals. I adhered the oak leaves and acorns with glue dots, tucking the ends behind the pumpkins. I adhered the Bumblebee gingham ribbon to the sign with glue dots and adhered the sign to the top of the wreath with dimensionals. I finished off the wreath with Bumblebee enamel dots and adhered the piece to the front of a Sahara Sand card base.

I adhered the last oak leaves and acorn to a Whisper White pane and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Arrange a Wreath bundle is so versatile!!

Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Watercolor Friendship Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a friendship card using the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden photopolymer stamp set and Garden Gateway Dies that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. I CASE’d a card from the annual catalog because it uses a watercolor with ink technique to color the images and I was excited to try out my new water painters! You can find the supplies used to create this project at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I die cut a panel of Shimmery White with the third largest Stitched Rectangles Dies and used the large brush water painter to create a color wash with Pool Party on top and Old Olive on the bottom. I flattened the panel by placing it in a folded sheet of typing paper and ironing it, since the watercoloring caused it to warp.

I stamped the garden gate from the Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden photopolymer stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink on Shimmery White card stock. I also stamped three of the tall flower clusters and two of the medium flower clusters. I cut out all the elements with the coordinating dies from the Garden Gateway Dies. Using the fine tip water painter, I colored the gate with Cinnamon Cider ink and the flowers with Highland Heather, Terracotta Tile, Bumblebee and Granny Apple Green inks.

I cut a panel of Pool Party from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack with the third largest Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhered it offset to the back of the watercolored background with Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the gate and one of the tall flowers to the panel with Stampin’ Seal and popped another tall flower cluster and the shorter flowers on with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment on a panel of Shimmery White card stock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, trimmed the bottom and adhered it to the panel with Stampin’ Seal. I embossed a panel of Pool Party with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Pool Party card base. I popped the layered watercolor panel on with dimensionals and finished the card with three Terracotta Tile butterflies.

I saved two flower clusters for the inside of the card, so I adhered them to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden bundle is such a sweet set and is beautiful when watercolored! I haven’t used the watercolor technique in a long time and while it was a bit messier, it was a lot of fun. And I really like the new Stampin’ Up! water painters! I’m already planning which flower stamps to watercolor in the coming weeks!
