Happiness Abounds – Colour Challenge card

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.

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 created with the Adventurous Journey stamp set and the soon to be retired Symbols of Fortune DSP.

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.

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.

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.

He’s The Man Birthday 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. Today I focused on the versatile He’s The Man stamp set and All That Dies. This bundle is part of the He’s The Man Collection available in the NEW 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.

The colours of the DSP are classic masculine combinations with great neutrals and pops of colour. The dies are stylish and have a great beveled edge to make them look finished.

I added a layer of clear embossing powder over the sentiment to make it shine.

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

Slimline Wildlife Wonder Card

This morning I used the Wildlife Wonder stamp set and created a scenic slimline card (inspired by Helen Read) to go in our new Slimline Envelopes.

I started with a full piece of Basic White cardstock. I cut it at the 7-1/2″ mark to create an 8-1/2″ X 7-1/2″ piece, which I then scored at 3-3/4″ to fold in half.

Next I trimmed down the remaining piece to 8-1/8″ X 3-3/8″. I also cut a piece of Early Espresso at 8-1/4″ X 3-1/2″. This creates a layered card perfect for our new Slimline Envelopes.

Next I used Blending Brushes to create a Crushed Curry and Balmy Blue sky. Adding some sunny flower details in Crushed Curry with the Butterflies & Flowers Decorative Masks.

You can see all the other details of the card in the video below.
