The Suit and Tie dies are so fun to work with. I made a card for my husband and for my dad using them for Father's Day. Unfortunately the Well Suited designer series paper has sold out. There are many other designer series paper you can use, or you can make your own patterns with the stamps. If you look closely you can see I added texture to the suit using our Tasteful Texture embossing folder. Also look at the detail to the buttons. I like how the die cuts 6 buttons at a time. For the Inside, I used... Continue reading

Today is our daughter's 20th birthday, which is her golden birthday. What better Designer Series Paper to use than Artistically Inked! I love the gold that is in the paper. One side of each of the sheets had gold foil worked into it. Here is a closer picture that shows the gold a little better. I cut apart the large die with leaves, and tucked it behind the flowers. I am using retired number dies for this card. I keep very few dies once they retire, but these I have used a lot! The Mini Dimensionals are perfect for pieces... Continue reading

Our Hand Penned Designer Series Paper has been quite popular. I ordered the paper right away and this is the first card I have made with it. I chose to use Highland Heather for the base of the card because I wanted to use our new Highland Heather 1/2" ribbon. It has some shimmer to it. I cut the Designer Series paper is 1 1/2" x 3". I chose to show 3 different pieces. There are so many great designs to choose from. tams# 60165 Product List Hand Penned 12" X 12" (30.5 X 30.5 Cm) Designer Series Paper [155499]... Continue reading

I recently made a card for one of my demonstrators who is celebrating her 10th Stampin Up Anniversary. 10 years ago at Stampin Up's Leadership conference, they gave us all a free starter kit to give to one person who we thought would like to start a business. I chose Sue, a longtime customer. I have always been curious how many of those who were given a free kit are still a demonstrator 10 years later. Sue has done a great job running her business and it has been fun to watch it grow! I made this card for her... Continue reading

Today we celebrated my niece's 7th birthday. I made her this card using our Oh So Ombre designer series paper stack that is free with a $50 order through the end of February. I used my very favorite die set, Tasteful Labels Dies. It is so versatile, I use it all the time. I the used my Take Your Pick tool to pick up the pearls from the sheet the come on and put them in place to create a 7. It would have been much harder to make the straight lines with out the Take Your Pick tool. It... Continue reading

As a demonstrator we get to pre order new items from the next catalog early. It is an awesome perk! Many Messages intrigued me as it was one jumbo stamp with many greetings and then one jumbo die that cut all the greetings out. I decided to give it a try so I could honestly tell others if it is worth getting or not. I made this video to show you easy it is to put greetings on many cards. Check out the video to see the actual stamp and the large die. I used Stampin' Ups Peony Garden Designer... Continue reading

Stampin' Up released a new bundle called Quite Curvy. They aslo have a coordinating Christmas set too. I designed this card to show how quick and easy it is. I used Flowers For Every Season designer series paper and our Medium Daisy punch to dress it up. I punched 2 daisies and positioned them so you see all the petals. I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends to color in the center of the flower. After I die cut the curve in the card, I stamped the greeting just above it. I really like the detail of how it is...

Do you have someone you need to make a card for that is Ridiculously Awesome? I made this card from some Ridiculously Awesome Demonstrators who had a great stamping year. If you look at the Stamp Set I used below, the greeting is actually Make Today Ridiculously Awesome. I didn't want it to say "Make Today," so I used a post it note on that part while inking the stamp, and then took it off before stamping on my white piece. For the Designer Series piece, I cut it 3 1/2" X 4" I am really liking Tasteful Labels dies.... Continue reading

Today is my dad's birthday! I made him this card: I just love the Designer Series Paper Pack called In Good Taste. I wanted to design a card where it shows off the great designs in it. I cut 1 1/4 inch strips cutting just slightly before the 1 1/4 line. This gives a tiny bit of extra space. I then took the squares and arranged them on the Early Espresso piece until I am satisfied with the arrangement. I then adhere them to the card. Next I wrapped the braided trim around the Early Espresso piece twice. Stamp any... Continue reading

I have been really enjoying working with Jar of Flowers stamp set. It is much more versatile that I first thought. I used Just Jade as a card base and for the ribbon. I tied the ribbon in a bow and used a glue dot to adhere it to the card. This helps hide if you didn't line up the flowers to the jar just right. Just Jade is one of my favorite new In Colors. Flowers For Every Season is a 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack that I used. There is such a great assortment of papers in it.... Continue reading

I have been using Painted Poppies stamp set for my stamps in the mail. I wanted to design a card that also used our new Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designers Series Paper. It is a pack of embossed vellum in 3 colors. This is the card I came up with. I stamped the image of flowers using our Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, and then used the light Calypso Coral Stampin Blends to color in the flowers. I added green using the spatter stamp using Soft Sea Foam. I really like the texture on the vellum. It is a... Continue reading

The Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration set has been a popular choice for Sale-A-Braiton. It is free with a $50 purchase. Stampin up added coordinating dies called Birthday Dies that ate $27. I designed this card to show them both off. The Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder adds a lot to the card. I used the dies to cut out the cake, flowers on the cake, and the cake plate. I fussy cut the Celebrate. Here is a close up of the flowers. The Birthday dies are available while supplies last, and the Happy Birthday To You Stamp set is while... Continue reading

For this quarter I am using the Painted Poppy Suite for my Stamps In The Mail club. If you have not checked this suite out, you should. It is amazing! At first I didn't think I needed it all, but I ended up getting it all and absolutely love it! For this card, I used both stamp sets and both sets of dies. I started with the group of flowers die from the Poppy Moment Dies. I really like how it looks with colored card stock behind it. I then stamped the flowers on scrap pieces of Whisper White and...

I love the Christmas Gleaming bundle that is in the Holiday Catalog. The coordinating Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper is a favorite with the copper in it. I am using several of the sheets for my Christmas cards this year and wanted to come up with a card for the Mossy Meadow sheets. This is the card I designed. I love how the designer series paper has shiny copper in it. I embossed the copper foil sheet with the same embossing folder as the front piece- Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. I punched the foil with the smaller of the... Continue reading

I was given It Starts With Art Stamp Set at our big demonstrator event last April. I thought it would go great with Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes.

Below you can see the note cards come with 4 different colors. I bought 4 packs of them since I always like to make multiples. I used the Old Olive Note Cards to make a card using Daisy Lane. You can see it here Daisy... Continue reading

Good Morning Magnolia Suite has been a popular Suite. I made this card using the new bulk pack of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Adding a 1' X 4 1/4' strip of designer series paper really adds to a card. You also can get a lot from one sheet! I wrapped the ribbon around the card base and tied it in a knot. I then tied on the greeting on using white baker's twine. I use a mini dimensional to keep the tag in place. It is a pretty simple card! tams# 38374 Product List Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp...
