Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars Celebrate Card

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July!! I have wanted to make a patriotic card with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars dies since the die set came out last year, and today is the day!! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere a panel of Playful Pets designer series paper to a Real Red card stock mat. I wrapped length of Real Red satin ribbon around the panel and secured it the back withI Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped a strip of Whisper White card stock with the celebrate sentiment from the Celebrate Sunflowers cling stamp set using Pacific Point ink. I trimmed the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I also punched then ends of a Real Red strip and adhered the label to it. Then I used glue dots to adhere the label to the card over the ribbon.

I cut out the stars with the Stampin’ Up! Stitched Stars dies. I adhered the Pacific Point cut-out star to the large Pacific Point stitched star and a Whisper White star to the large Real Red star to add some texture. I added rhinestones to the centers of all the stars and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue and dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of Playful Pets DSP to the side of a Whisper White panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card. I finished off the inside by adhering three additional stars to the upper corner.

Please join me tomorrow at 1:00 ET on my Business Facebook Page for my weekly Facebook Live card making video.

I hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Christmas Card

Happy Monday morning! Today I’m sharing a sparkly card that I made during my Facebook Live presentation yesterday. I used the Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars photopolymer stamp set along with the Stitched Stars dies. These are currently available in a bundle at 10% off and I sure hope they get carried over because they are both fabulous! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

My card was inspired by a one that I made a few years back with the now retired Stampin’ Up! Christmas Star stamp. That card had a beautiful silver embossed dimensional star on a navy embossed background, but I had to cut it out by hand. Today’s card has the stitched dies that make cutting so much faster and accurate. Plus, it has the gold glitter star flourish behind the star. In the video, I show how to score and fold the star to make it 3D. It gives the card a special touch. Here’s the video.

I also posted it to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

I hope that you like the card and enjoyed the video. I know all the glitter and sparkle may be a little too much for everyone’s tastes, but this set is so versatile that I’m sure I can come up with a star filled design that is a little simpler next time. Thanks for visiting!
