Brewed For You In Color 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 focused on the Brewed For You bundle. I paired it with two of my other favourite new products from the NEW 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue – Orchid Oasis everything and the Stylish Shapes dies.

This card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge (#FMS535).

I had to change the direction of the sketch since the images and sentiments are actually quite large in this set. I love that the dies cut all the bits and have some fun embellishment bits.

I also love the dotted stitching on the Stylish Shapes – and the Splatters embossing folder creates the perfect background.

Check out my video below to see all the details of the card. I also have a supply list below.

April 2022 Online Workshop

Each month I host a FREE Online workshop on FB and You Tube. It is essentially a reverse card class. I show you the product and how to create the cards – then if you’d like to receive the make’n’take package and a printable PDF tutorial you simply place a $60+ order with me using my host code (https://www.stampinup.ca?hostcode=KCSNKGQ3) . This month I focused on the Butterfly Brilliance bundle. I created 4 cards using this wonderful bundle and a few retiring items. I also featured our new 2022-2024 In Colors!

Each month I also do a prize draw (for Canadians only – sorry). I will be choosing two names this month. One to win a free pack of embellishments from me and the other to win the 4 cards I created in the workshop.

Here are the 4 cards I created.

Orchid Oasis card base & baker’s twine
Sweet Sorbet butterfly & baker’s twine

The first two cards were inspired by two different sketch challenges.

Parakeet Party layer & baker’s twine
Starry Sky stripe & baker’s twine

Check out my video below to see how I created these cards.

Snowy Christmas Card

Today I am playing with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set again – but using it to create a more traditional Christmas card with a snowy scene. I am also using a sketch from Global Design Project (GDP318) to inspire me.

This card looks a bit complicated, but in reality uses very few materials and only 1 ink and 1 reinker!! The tress and sentiment were stamped in Garden Green and the snow was created by splattering White Craft ink across the stamped scene. To see exactly how I created this please check out my video below and make sure to follow my You Tube channel to see all my latest creations, tips and tricks.

Here is a full list of supplies used to create this rustic card. If you get a chance to shop with me TODAY ( Nov 18, 2021) there is even a Seasonal Sale happening (10% off cardstock, 15% off inks, and 20% off dies).

Sunny Sentiments Birthday Card

Today’s card was created using the Sunny Sentiments cling stamp set by Stampin’ Up! All of the sentiments in this set are fabulous – but the Birthday one I especially love because “all the best things” leaves this sentiment open to be used with such a wide variety of images – puppies, flowers, cocktails, chocolate, family & friends, and of course the gorgeous mountains.

I paired this sentiment set with the Mountain Air stamps et and Majestic Mountains dies. These long stamps fit perfectly across a card front (both vertical or horizontal) and make for fast but stunning cards.

I stamped the mountains in Smoky Slate and the trees in Just Jade. Then I added some Metallic Mesh Ribbon to fill the space below and some Soft Succulent Ink for the birds in the sky.

The sentiment was heat embossed on Soft Succulent cardstock. Embossing an image always makes it pop for me. I keep my embossing powder out in trays and ready to use – which means it is easy to do, so I emboss a lot more than if I kept them packed away.

You can see all the details of this card in my video below – make sure to subscribe to my channel while you are there.

Mountain Air Card

This week I am focusing on the Mountain Air stamp set and the coordinating Majestic Mountains dies. I used blending brushes to create this sunset sky. You can see all the details in the video below.

Since this stamp set does not have any sentiments, you can pair it with anything you’ve got. I used Peaceful Moments. Father’s Day is coming, this would work well with sentiments from Best Year as well.

Paper Pumpkin – May 2021 Batter Up!

This month’s Paper Pumpkin was a Home Run!! The Batter Up kit came with 3 pieces of Double Bubble Bubblegum, a Night of Navy Ink Spot, fabulous envelopes and all the card bits, plus the best stamp set.

Check out the video below to see how quick and easy the three cards are to make.

You won’t want to miss next month’s Paper Pumpkin either. June’s ink-credible kit contains enough elements to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—including ink-stained paper pieces, an exclusive stamp set, and not one, but two Classic Stampin’ Spots! And, it all comes in a cute, colorful, and collectible box.

Geared Up Garage – CASE

I needed an awesome masculine card for one of my uncles – so I cased this great card designed by Julie Kettlewell (juliesjapes.blogspot.com) from the UK. I changed up the colours a bit because any chance to use Pretty Peacock I can’t pass up.

Many of the products used to create this card are retiring soon. Check out the whole last chance section at my Stampin’ Up! shop.
