Have you seen our Incredible Like You card kit? I LOVE it! I don't know why I waited so long to make it! All you need is the Incredible Like you Stamp Set, Lovely Lipstick and Costal Cabana Stamp pads or similar colors. This is what comes with it: It took me 45 minutes to make the 16 cards. It comes with coordinating envelopes. I took a close up of each card. Here is a video I made showing all that comes in the kit and give a few tips: Happy Stamping! Kristen Bryant Continue reading

We had our On Stage event this past weekend. It was so much fun! I love getting together with other demonstrators! It started Friday night with a special night for leaders. At every stamping event we get a bag. Isn't this cute! They had beautiful flowers on the tables. A great meal and many desserts to pick from! Of course we had several! The best part besides connecting with friends from all over, is we get the catalog early! We had several from our group and extended downline qualify to attend. (for the event on Friday you need to be... Continue reading

Stampin Up has so many great punches. I love when we have punches that coordinate with our sets. I also like using punches over dies when I am making multiple of the same card. They are so quick to use! This year Stampin Up is retiring several of our punches. They are available while supplies last so don't wait! I looked through some cards I have make awhile back using some of the punches retiring. This first card uses many different sizes of circles. We will still have the 2 1/4", 2", 1 1/2", 1", and 1/2 inch. If you... Continue reading

Today is my grandma's 91st birthday. I decided to make her a card using the elegant Wonderful Romance Stamp Set. I love all that is in the Floral Romance suite. I used the stamp set, dies, and the embossing folder. My Grandma loves getting my hand stamped cards. I wrote on a separate piece of paper so she can send the card to someone else when she is done having it on display in her kitchen. My grandma is so good about sending cards to others. Each kid, grandkid and great grandchild gets their own card in the mail for... Continue reading

Have you tried our foil paper? It looks absolutely stunning run through the big shot with an embossing folder. I used it with our new Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also used the foil for the scalloped circle. Right now you can get a pack of Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil paper Free with a $50 order. I have been told they believe they will run out of these, so don't wait if it is something you would like. We also sell a few colors of it in our catalog. The Wonderful Floral dies have so many...

Happy Valentines Day! This year I decided to not buy a Valentine Stamp set as I was thinking I had plenty to use from other years. I then decided to use Hello Cupcake from our Sale-A-Bration choices as there was a little heart to stick on the cupcake. I also liked the greeting Sprinkled with Love. This card could be for a birthday too. When I send cards, I cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of white card stock to write on, and I don't adhere it so then the person can throw that out and reuse the card....

When I was creating yesterday, I made 2 cards using the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon. This is the second card. I thought Gorgeous Grape would be a good color to put with Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green. When I went to get the card stock, I realized I have not used any Gorgeous Grape Card Stock since the color came out in June! I have used the stamp pad, but not the card stock. I am glad I finally did as I really like it. If your school colors have purple in it, this is the... Continue reading

Do you love cupcakes? I do! I really like the stamp set Hello Cupcake that is free with a $50 order while supplies last or through March 31! Most of the cards I have been making are more for feminine, so I wanted to make a card that I could give a guy. I also wanted to use our new Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" reversible ribbon since I just got it. Do you ever think you have ordered something, and then go to use it, and then realize you didn't actually order it? That is what happened to me.... Continue reading

I won Wonderful Romance in November while I was at Stampin Up's On Stage event. When I got it I thought, "nice to win it because I didn't think I would buy it." Now I just love it! I have made a few different cards, and wanted to do a more simple card. I made a card like this years ago. I had to go back on my blog to 2012 to find it! https://www.stampingwithkristen.com/2012/10/blooming-with-kindness.html The technique I am doing I have seen called Triple Time Stamping, or Triple Layer. Triple Layer Card Measurements: Whisper White 5 1/4 X 4... Continue reading

I have really liked working with the Garden Impressions Suite. The Abstract Impressions stamp set, Springtime Impressions Thinlit dies and Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper Stack give you so many options. I wanted to design a card that used the Thinlit traditional way- to cut out, and then also to emboss with the embossing mat. This is what I came up with. I folded the card in 1/2, and then folded the front flap back. I opened up the card and then use the butterfly thinlit and embossing mat to emboss the butterfly on the inside of the card. I...

When I saw our Lined Alphabet Bundle in the catalog, it went on my wish list. It is a bit spendy, but is pretty awesome! It is a great choice to get as a 1/2 price item if you host a larger workshop. I was a little nervous to use it, but the video is super helpful! We had my niece's birthday this past weekend, so I thought it would be a great time to try it out! I used her favorite colors. I stamped it after I cut it out. On Sunday there was a Stampin' Up Demonstrator event,... Continue reading

Stampin Up offers several suites in the catalog. They each have several items that all coordinate. One of my favorite suites in the catalog is Abstract Impressions. The thinlits designer series paper and stamp set have so many possibilities! For this card I used 2 of our new colors, Shaded Spruce and Mango Melody. For the flower, I used Calypso Coral and first stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped the shaded flower for the base of the flower, and then I stamped directly on the paper with the more detailed part of the flower. That... Continue reading

When I saw the Love You To Pieces Stamp set and Puzzle Dies, I knew I wanted to get them right away. We love puzzles at our house. We often have one going on our table. For the card I designed, I used our new embossing mats. They allow you to use your thinlits to emboss images using the Big Shot. I own so many thinlits, so this gives me so many mote options! For the card, I used the thinlit the traditional way to cut out the puzzle pieces using smoky slate card stock. I then got out my... Continue reading

You can shop online at www.kristenbryant.stampinup.net to see all the options. I used our new color Shaded Spruce to stamp the greeting and for the green strip of card stock.

I love the greeting in Abstract Impressions stamp set: Kindness Changes Everything. This is so true! Kindness to those around you makes a HUGE difference. You could use many different greeting on this card. It would be great for a birthday, shower wedding, thinking of you, get well...

I love the Picture Perfect Party Suite. I have used the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper on many cards in the past couple months. There are so many fun designs!

We just celebrated my grandma's 90th birthday. Here she is with our kids. Isn't she cute! I decided to get out my Brusho Crystal Colour to make her birthday card. I thought it would be nice to make a background for the large flower that I cut out using the Rose Garden thinlits. This is the card I made: I cut out the flower image first using shimmer white paper and saved the piece of the outline of the flower. I put the outline of the flower down and used it as a stencil to get the area inside of... Continue reading

I am really liking our new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. I used then to make this Valentine. Our Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series paper is so fun! It has shiny gold on one of the sides. I used Gold Foil paper to make the larger heart. I thought our Love Mini Tinsil Trim would be a good accent for the card. The rest of the supplies are below. tams# 20081 Product List Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes [145583] $8.00 Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper [145580] $13.00 Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack...

My son just turned 18. He is our oldest, and this is not going tp be an easy Spring with college choices and graduation. This is the card I made for him. It is a super quick card using Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper. The die cut numbers personalize it a little. It is his girlfriend's birthday this week too so I made this card for her using our Whisper White Narrow notecards and envelopes. I love the size! I used the same numbers and a different designer series paper from the same pack. tams# 19953 Product List Picture... Continue reading

When I saw the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, I thought it would be fun to do a non-traditional valentine. I saw a sample online by Amy K that used the heart framelit with the pears so I decided that would be a great way to have the sentiment and pears. I love the Tutti-Frutti 6X6 designer series pack. There are so many fun designs on it!
