I love how this turned out! I was inspired by Linda Dalke, an Australian demonstrator who demonstrated in a water color class last week. She showed how to make the mountains with the "sand" hills stamp (what I used for my sand), and tiny trees just by using the tips of a tree stamp. I used watercolor paper and the Waterpainters. My sun and "trees" were from the Mountain Air stamp set, and the sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set. Love how different sets coordinate! Stampin'Up! supplies are below.

I love bundles with a punch! I think this Alphabest Bundle is overlooked in the annual catalog, pages 115 AND 151. The stamp set has numbers, alphabet, and images, which is great for scrapbooking! The Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 order during July and August, or while supplies last, and the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper & stamp set are FREE with a $100 purchase. The gold card uses the banner from the Christmas Banners Bundle and the sentiment from the Ringed with Nature stamp set (July-December Mini). I also embossed with either gold... Continue reading

This was one of those bundles that didn't appeal to me at first, but I got it, to play with it and I LOVE it! And what is extra cool, is that the coordinating Rings of Love Designer Series Paper is FREE during Sale a Bration (July & August) with a $50 order (before tax & shipping).

He's The Man Suite is featured on pages 78 & 79 of the new Stampin'Up! annual catalog. You can buy the suite with one item number, or you can purchase the items in the suite individually. I used all the items in the suite on this card. (He's All That Bundle, He's the Man Designer Series Paper, and the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots. The dies are great for sentiment labels and can be used with other stamp sets. The designer series paper has two sheets the same that have die cut images which I have used on this card. I...

My son in law is a Vikings fan. I hope he likes his birthday card! Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Just click to order. I used the Stampin' Blends to color, then also used the Color Lifter to "age" the helmet and lighten up areas of his beard. I also used Wink of Stella on the sword and shield.

Playing with the Beautiful Shapes Dies again! Besides the hexagon shapes, there are also circle shapes in this set. Check out my other cards where I made cubes with these dies, here and here. I did not use the Hello Beautiful stamp set on these cards, which is the stamp set that is bundled with these dies just until June 30, but I did use the Framed Occasions stamp set that coordinates with these dies. You can save 10% if you purchase the Hello Beautiful Bundle through June 30th, but then the stamp set and dies must be purchased separately.... Continue reading

These Peekaboo Treat Bags come 10 to a package, 5 Kraft and 5 White! I have two of the bite size bars inside this treat bag. See the new product I have used?

I am going to miss the New Horizons designer series paper when it retires in June! It is available until June 30th or while supplies last, so you had best stock up if you are wanting it. I used two different sizes of the Layering Diorama Dies, but die cut both from one sheet of the paper. The thank you sentient is from the Grassy Grove stamp set, and the birthday sentiment is from the Paradise Palms stamp set. These are both quick cards! Love these deer die cuts!

This sentiment, from the Nature's Harvest bundle, is just perfect for this card, don't you think? Nature's beauty is amazing, isn't it? I do have the black scenery die popped up with the mini black dimensionals, and my deer are flat adhered. The sentiment label is popped up, but just on the bottom, so that the top is resting on the black scenery. Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Just click to order. This may or may not be my last sample with the Rays of Light background stamp. Product List Rays Of Light Cling Stamp Set [158925] $18.00 Grove Dies [157844]... Continue reading

The sentiment is from the Nature's Harvest stamp set, and die cut with the label from the Harvest Dies, which if purchased together as a bundle, will save you 10%. This bundle is on page 68 and 165 of the annual catalog. The cloud punch is in the current mini and the annual catalog, but is $18 if purchased by the end of June, and $19 if bought after June 30th. This time I used the Mango Melody ink for my sun rays! This is a very simple card to make. Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Just click to order! Check... Continue reading

I combined the Rays of Light Background stamp with the Paradise Palms bundle to make this fun fold (Joy Fold) card. I hadn't used the decorative strip die so I adhered it, black on black, and then cut it shorter so that it would hold my flap closed. I also used the Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper, which is a hostess only item. Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Just click to order. Measurements: Card Base: 4.25 x 8.5, scored @ 5.5 DSP: 3 x 4, 5.25 x 4 Long folded strip: 8 x 3, folded in half Stamped layers: front... Continue reading

Love this background stamp and it works wonderfully with the Sending Smiles bundle. The inside sentiment says "to brighten your day". I masked it so that I could have just the "sunshine" on the card front, and then masked the sunshine word, so that I would have the rest of the sentiment on the inside. Stampin'Up! has Masking Paper, page 149 of the annual catalog. Supplies are below. Just click to order. Order this from me, and I will send you a card made with it! (Maybe even this one).

I used the new In Color, Orchid Oasis, for my ribbon and dress color! The dress really sparkles with Wink of Stella added! I used the retired Flower & Field designer series paper to just wrap around the movie sized box of candy and adhered it with the Tear & Tape. The box can just slide out. The stamp set, Born to Shine, is also retired. I love all my retired dance themed stamps! I also used the blends to color. Current Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Happy stamping!

Love the new Dots & Spots Die, page 170! I am having fun playing with NEW product, and this die is such a sweet surprise. It die cuts all the holes, and the Polished Pink card base shows through! What a nice look! Can't wait to try other color combos. I am also using the new Sending Smiles Bundle! This stamp set has many sentiments, that you can stamp together or mask off, and get many more phrases! I really like the detailed, "Sending" over the solid background.

I did not want the slim card size, so I just die cut part of my cardstock layer by positioning my cutting plate only over part of my layer, then "nest" the die, by lining up the thin and thick points and die cutting the bottom with the cutting plate over where I need to die cut. You can "feel" when you have the die lined up correctly. The secret is to only have the cutting plate over what you want die cut. Check out the new Stylish Shapes Dies, page 175 of the brand new catalog. I think these... Continue reading

This was my set I received for registering for Stampin'Up!'s On Tour virtual event last month. We were encouraged to make a swap card with our stamp set, and swap virtually! Because this was done last month, my ribbon and designer series paper strip are now retired. This set is a photopolymer and two step stamping, two of my favorite criteria. This stamp set is brand new, page 114 of the just launched (today) annual cataog! Current Stampin'Up! supplies are below. Just click to order.

See how I stamp once, and punch once for all three sailboat images. I place the clear block on top of my punch, then add the photopolymer stamps onto my block, by lining the stamps with the images on the punch. Then I stamp but try to stamp in the same "alignment" as the punch, so as not to waste cardstock. You don't have to stamp and punch all three together. Whatever works for you. This was first time to use this bundle and also to use my Layering Diorama Dies. I love the New Horizons 6 x 6 designer... Continue reading

Place the diamond shapes onto the hexagon. The dies in the Beautiful Shapes Dies, cut two hexagons and two diamonds at once. I changed the color combo to Sweet Sorbet, Pool Party, and Blushing Bride, and used the Adhesive Backed Hexagons which are part of the Abstract Beauty Suite, page 49 of the Jan-June Stampin'Up! Mini Catalog. I also stamped the pool party "splotch" image from the Hello Beautiful stamp set to "ground" my cubes. Piecing together these cubes are addictive! Current product is shown below.

Check out pages 48-50 of the Jan-June Stampin'Up! mini catalog to see the Abstract Beauty Suite, and the Hello Beautiful Bundle that is featured. This is my first attempt at making cubes with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. This will carry over into the next catalog, but the bundled price will only be honored until the end of the mini (end of June). BUT in the new catalog, there is a new stamp set that coordinates with the dies, the Framed Occasions stamp set! I used some new on this card. Can you see what? I used the 2022-2024 In Color...
