Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 392 – Sketch Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a versatile Sketch Challenge. Take a look at all the beautiful cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

I used a wide range of pinks to create this card. Blushing Bride cardstock, Melon Mambo Ink, Polished Pink Opal Rounds, and Sweet Sorbet Metallic Woven Ribbon. Not to mention the Flirty Flamingo blooms cut fromt he Hues of Happiness DSP. The stamp set I used for the sentiment was Happiness Abounds from the brand new 2022-2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

To add some interest to the background of this card I applied Melon Mambo Ink in a small circular motion using a Blending Brush – then I Picked up some Melon Mambo Ink with a Water Paper and splattered it across the embossed and inked background piece. The ribbon and opals add just the right amount of sparkle to the painted blooms.

All of the supplies I used to create today’s card are listed below, you can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

Sweetest Cherries Cards

All week I have been crafting with the Sweetest Cherries stamp set. I actually have 2 new cards to share with you.

This first one was created in bright summery colours – Sweet Sorbet ( with Cherry Cobbler along the edges of the cherries), paired with Early espresso and Crumb Cake to create a basket feel.

The second card was created using deep, rich Merry Merlot to create more of a black cherry feeling. I love that this set can be playful, subtle, or crisp depending on the colours you use to craft the cherries.

Earlier this week I created to other very different feeling cards.

If you are loving these cherries as much as I am – you should consider joining my Monthly Card Club ASAP. I am featuring the Sweetest Cherries bundle – deadline to join is July 10th.

Don’t forget that we also have 2 great sales happening right now (until June 30th only) – you’ll want to go to my shop to check out all the details.

Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop – June 2022

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another Coast to Coast Creators Blog Hop! This one features all new product from the 2022-2023 Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue!!  Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love and then come back to see us again on the 14th next month!

I created this card using leftover paper strips in all the blues (Pool Party, Night of Navy, Orchid Oasis, Pacific Point, Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide) and the Adventurous Journey stamp set – one of my favourites from the new catalogue since I love kayaking.

Once the paper strips were glued to the card front I used Versamark to stamp the rings and lily pads so that it would “match” all the shades of blue. I used stamped off Tahitian Tide Ink to create the rings on the Basic White layer.

Please leave a comment below and make sure to follow my blog for lots more great inspiration!

Live in Canada, don’t have a demonstrator? Contact me to get a catalogue or find out why right now is the best time to join our team.

Here is a full list of supplies needed to create this card. Note – for the blue strips – these actually came from a scrap bin I didn’t cut them special for the project.

Glad We’re Friends – guinea pig card

Every Wednesday morning I go live on FB and You Tube to create something using the Stampin’ Up! product that I am featuring that week. This Wednesday I played around with the adorable ‘Glad We’re Friends’ stamp set and the colourful Tea Boutique 6X6 DSP.

This card design is great because you get 2 cards for the work of one.

To create these two cards you just need to cut two pieces of 4″ X 5-1/4″ DSP in half on a diagonal (cut them at the same time so they get the exact same angle). The adhere the mix and matched pieces to a piece of Basic White cardstock that is also 4″ X 5-1/4″. The you can adhere a ribbon, attach the sentiment circle and adhere it all to a card base.

You can see exactly how I made these cards in this video.

If you enjoyed this video, please leave a comment below and share the video with fellow stampers. Thanks!

I created the same card using some different patterns from the Tea Boutique 6X6 DSP. Using some darker colours created a bolder look to this card.

Here is the full list of supplies I used:

A Million Thanks Kit & Alternatives

Every Wednesday morning I go live on FB and You Tube to create something using the Stampin’ Up! product that I am featuring that week. This Wednesday I played around with the A Million Thanks Kit. (Actually Tuesday night I created with the kit and Wednesday morning I created alternatives using the left over bits from the kit). I used EVERY piece in the kit.

I really want you to see how amazing our kits collection is and to let you know that for the month of June all our Kits are on sale Buy One, Get One 50% off – and it’s the most expensive kit that will be discounted!! Yay!

So anyways, here are the 9 cards & envelopes that the kit instructions show you how to make – I LOVE them.

When I created these cards I only made one change – I did not add the pop up flowers like they suggested on the heart card, I didn’t think it needed the extra layer. And I did switch up the sentiment on 2 of the cards so I could create a couple of birthday cards. I used Wildlife Wonder for the sentiment. I also used one of the flowers (that I didn’t put on the background) and some Iridescent Pearl Jewels to add a special touch. Here is what they cards looked like instead.

You can see exactly how I made these cards in this video, and of course – the kits themselves come with full colour instructions.

By making that little change to the heart card I ended up with 6 extra labels and a ton of fun flowers to create some alternate cards with. I just needed card bases, envelopes and a few fun tools and embellishments. Here’s what I created.

I used the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks, blending brushes and some Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz Ink to make these fun backgrounds.

Check out my video below to see all the details of the card. Scroll down to see close up photos of these cards, a supply list and a few more cards that I created off screen to use up all the labels and embellishments in the kit.

If you enjoyed this video, please leave a comment below and share the video with fellow stampers. Thanks!

Here is the full list of supplies I used: (*except for the In Color 2021-2023 markers since I only used those to fix a mistake)


Paper Snips
[103579]
$15.00

Even after making the 9 kit cards (3 each of 3 designs) and the 4 alternatives (2 each of 2 designs) I still had left over flowers and these two lonely labels.

So, off screen I continued to stamp using the same materials as above.

With just one label and three black dots left (and I had the Wildlife Wonder stamp set out for the birthday sentiment), I grabbed a few more supplies – not listed above – Early Espresso ink and cardstock, Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, Stylish Shapes dies, and some Vellum Cardstock to create this masculine card.

I created a total of 16 AMAZING cards using this kit!!

If you haven’t had a chance to play with this kit yet – you are going to want to grab it ( and one more at least since they are Buy One Get One 50% off this month – June 1 -30, 2022)

I have another perk to ordering with me in the month of June- any order over $65cdn, I am also emailing out an amazing 37 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.
