Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes Thank You Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Winter Thank You card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and I also used the Winter Snow 3D embossing folder and the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper to make sure I had enough snowflakes. Today’s card was inspired by a set of cards I saw on Pinterest made by Australian Demonstrator Gail Ellis. You can find the supplies I 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer. Later this week I hope to get a quickie version posted to my channel too.

I embossed a Whisper White panel with the Winter Snow embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a Whisper White note card. I adhered the Snowflake Splendor DSP panels to the Balmy Blue mats and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I could not believe that when I was Live, I put my liquid glue on the wrong side of the designer series paper!! So I had to change things up a bit and stamped in Pacific Point instead of Balmy Blue. The color is a little more intense, but everything still goes together beautifully!

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set to a Whisper White panel in Pacific Point ink and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I adhered some Snowflake Splendor ribbon to the back and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.

I cut two small snowflakes and a medium snowflake from Balmy Blue glimmer paper with the So Many Snowflakes dies from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes bundle and adhered them to the card front. I finished the card with a blue gem.

I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Snowflake Wishes photopolymer stamp set in Pacific Point ink after stamping off in the corners of the inside of the card. I also stamped the outside of the envelope with Pacific Point snowflakes to match.

The Whisper White note cards and envelopes are perfect for a quick little thank you note – they are nice and thick, and don’t need an inside panel. Layered panel card designs like this one are a good use for those little scraps of pretty DSP that you can’t bear to throw out. And sending a quick thank you after Christmas is a nice way to reach out and let the joy of the season linger a little longer.

Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Thanksgiving Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing my final Thanksgiving card for this year – I’ll be sending them out to my family this week and moving on to finishing up Christmas cards. Kind of sad because I really love the fall season. This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and it is full of pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies. And I filled it out with an Autumn version of the new Quite Curvy leaves! 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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer. Later this week I hope to get a quickie version posted to my channel too.

I started by stamping the pumpkins from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White. I stamped three large pumpkins and two of the smaller sets of pumpkins and colored them with Pumpkin Pie and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends. I fussy cut them out. I cut two large leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies from Old Olive card stock.

I stamped the large leafy vine from the Quite Curvy photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the coordinating die. I colored the leaves with Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Cinnamon Cider and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I adhered a panel of Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to a Cajun Craze mat and adhered it to the front of a Bumblebee card base. I adhered the die cut leaves to the panel with liquid glue and adhered the pumpkins across the bottom. I used liquid glue on all except the center pumpkin, which I popped on with a dimensional.

I adhered the Quite Curvy leafy vine with dimensionals on the bottom of the arrangement. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together stamp set in Soft Suede ink on a Bumblebee panel. I cut it out with the small label die from the Beautiful Boughs dies and stamped the wheat sheafs in Bumblebee ink. I adhered the label to the front of the card with dimensionals and finished of the card front with three Bumblebee enamel gems.

I stamped the sentiment from the Banner Year photopolymer stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the wheat sheaf from the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together stamp set in Bumblebee ink next to the sentiment and stamped the leafy vine in Soft Suede ink on the bottom. I colored the leaves with dimensionals like the card front and adhered the panel to a Cajun Craze mat before adhering it to the inside of the card.

I love the Stampin’ Up! Gather Together Bundle and was so happy to see it return in the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini Catalog. And I love the fall version of the Quite Curvy leafy vine!! Thanks for stopping by and Have a great week!

Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Floral Christmas Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing another Christmas card – a floral card made with the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope bundle that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. So you might think that the Dove of Hope cling stamp set isn’t a floral stamp set, but look closely and you will spot the doves. 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 post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

I started by randomly stamping the doves from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a crumb cake panel and adhered it to a Real Red mat. This gives me a textured background for my flowers like you would get if you embossed it or used designer series paper. I die cut the petals from the Magnolia Memory Dies using Whisper White card stock, I cut two of each petal cluster giving me six total. I gently curled the petals up with my fingers and adhered them together with liquid glue.

I cut two small centers from the Magnolia Memory Dies and adhered them together. I bent the stamens up and adhered it to the center of the Whisper White flower. I cut two large flowers from the Wreath Builder Dies from Real Red card stock and three large leaves from the Magnolia Memory Dies from Mossy Meadow card stock. I cut a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from Crumb Cake card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink in the lower left corner. I adhered a Mossy Meadow die cut leaf sprig from the Detailed Dove Dies to the label.

I popped the label to the stamped panel with dimensionals. I adhered the leaves and Real Red flowers with liquid glue and popped the large Magnolia Memory Dies Whisper White flower on with dimensionals. I made a bow with Real Red braided twine and adhered it with a glue dot and finished the flowers with resin dots. I popped the finished panel on the front of a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I stamped a dove in the upper corner and adhered a die cut sprig under the sentiment. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I love rustic Christmas cards with Crumb Cake card card stock! They have such a natural homespun feel. And I love floral Christmas cards because they’re different, but express the joy of the holiday. And I’m so glad to be able to use the pretty flower from the Magnolia Memory Dies! Have a great week!!

Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a clean and simple card made with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle accented with leaves and acorns punched from the beautiful Gilded Autumn specialty 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.

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

I will post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

Emboss a Very Vanilla panel with the Pinewoods Plank embossing folder and adhere it to a Very Vanilla mat with liquid glue. Pop it on the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base with dimensionals. Punch out Cajun Craze and Mint Macaron leaves and Crumb Cake acorns from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper with the Autumn Punch pack from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle.

With the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, cut out the fancy layered labels, the large one from the speckled Crumb Cake paper in the Gilded Autumn paper pack and the smaller one from Very Vanilla card stock, Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the Very Vanilla label and adhere it to the DSP label. Pop the labels on the card front with dimensionals.

Adhere the punched leaves on the label with liquid glue and adhere the acorn with a dimensional. Make a bow with the Very Vanilla ribbon and adhere it with a glue dot. Finish the card front with three champaign rhinestones on the label.

Adhere leaves and an acorn to a Very Vanilla panel with liquid glue. Adhere a strip of the Crumb Cake paper from the Gilded Autumn specialty designer series paper to the bottom of the panel and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Autumn bundle is so versatile and it has great sentiments. The leaves and acorn could have easily been stamped in any color palette and then punched – but it’s nice to have beautiful DSP that can be die cut or punched like I did here. And the images in this stamp set are so beautiful in a clean and simple card with a textured Whisper White or Very Vanilla background. And the bonus is that they can be made fairly quickly with stunning results.

Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane Fall Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a fall card made with the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set accented with leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies. 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 post an edited version of how I made the card in my YouTube channel later this week so you can view a quickie version.

My card layout uses Freshly Made Sketches 457 – this is a good one, check it out.

Adhere a panel of Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the front of an Early Espresso Card base (don’t forget that the Plaid Tidings DSP is on sale this month! 😊). Stamp the Birch cling background stamp in Early Espresso ink on a Bumblebee panel and emboss it with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Adhere it to an Early Espresso mat and pop it on the card front with dimensionals.

Adhere a berry branch from the Forever Gold Laser cut specialty paper to the embossed panel. Cut the Gathered Leaves dies from Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz card stock. Adhere the leaves to the card front. Stamp three small daisies from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Bumblebee ink on Bumblebee card stock. Sponge the centers with Cajun Craze ink and sponge Pumpkin Pie ink around the petals, leaving just the tips. Punch out the three petal clusters with the medium daisy punch. Gently bend the petals back on one cluster, back and forward on the second and all forward on the last cluster. Adhere the clusters together with liquid glue.

Cut the center from gold foil using the flower center die from the Poinsettias Dies and adhere it to the middle of the flower. Pop the flower on the card front with a dimensional. Adhere a gold trim bow under the flower. Stamp the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a strip of Pumpkin Pie and trim the ends. Adhere it to a strip of early Espresso and pop it on the card front with dimensionals. Finish the card front with three Gilded Gems.

Stamp and emboss a strip of Bumblebee card stock to match the front panel and adhere it to the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Cut a small Gathered Leaves Die leaf from Pumpkin Pie and adhere it to the top corner of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Daisy Lane stamp set and the coordinating punches are perfect for creating fall floral cards – just change up the colors to coordinate with your favorite fall designer series paper. This is perfect for birthdays and other occasions when a pumpkin just won’t do.
