Hearts! Hearts! Hearts!

I love Valentine's cards...they are some of my very favorite to make.  Hopefully my DH will like this. It's not too fussy is it?


What I did:

Card Base -- Gray Granite
Middle Layer -- Blackberry Bliss
Top Layer -- Whisper White

From the Stitched Be Mine dies I used the stitched outline heart and "embossed" it 3 times on the Whisper White Layer

From the same dies I cut 3 sizes of hearts in 4 colors:  Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, and Soft Sea Foam.

I use Tombow adhesive for some of the hearts and some were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals

I added glimmer to the Soft Sea Foam hearts with the Wink of Stella -- Wow!  I love that glimmer.

Lastly, I added a few Heart Epoxy Drops.




Hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to make your own!

Tropical Oasis Birthday

The Tropical Oasis Suite in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is one of my very favorite things in the catalog. I used the Timeless Tropical Bundle for this card. It came along just in time for me to use it to make my sister's birthday card.  She was celebrating in Maui and I got to hand deliver the card!

Sadly I took just this one photo and it doesn't do the card justice.


What I did:

Stamp a variety of Artisan Textures in Coastal Cabana onto a Whisper White panel


Use the Subtle 3D Embossing folder to emboss Gold Foil Paper then die cut it using the In the Tropics Die.

I added a variety of inks to a panel of Pear Pizazz to give it a watercolor look then cut the pineapple top and the small leaf using the In the Tropics Die

Watercolored a scrap of Whisper White with Blushing Bide Ink then cut the flowers using the In the Tropics Dies

Using Tombo Glue I adhered the pineapple and flowers to the stamped Whisper White Panel

Stamped the greeting using Saddle Brown Stazon Ink

Add Basic Pearls to the centers of the flowers.

Layered the Whisper White panel onto an Early Espresso panel then mounted that onto a Whisper White Thick card base

Splattered the card with a Soft Suede marker.

I stamped the greeting on the inside and added the adorable pineapple from the Tropical Oasis trinkets.


Wish I had more photos to share -- I loved the card!

Buy the Shoes (and the stamps!)

I love Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP)!  I sort of made a resolution to (gasp) cut into it and use it!  After all, I know how to buy more!  I particularly love the Best Dressed DSP that coordinates with the Dressed to Impress stamp set and All Dressed Up Dies (you can get them in a bundle and save 10%)


Designer Series Paper makes it easy and fast to put a card together.  I simply cut a panel, layered it onto another layer of Lovely Lipstick, with just a 1/16" border.  I die cut the label from Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the shoe in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it with the Cherry Cobbler Light Stampin' Blend then fussy cut it out.

When I put it all together I decided it needed a little something so I cut a a border strip from the Sale-a-bration (that means you can get it free) set Lily Pad Dies and adhered it at the bottom of the layered panels.

Finished it off with a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels...voila card is done!

Thank you for looking!  I promise my next card will be from the new Mini Catalog!  Right now it's Sale-a-bration (SAB) time as well.  For every $50 in product you purchase you get to choose a free set from the SAB catalog.  If you want to purchase Stampin' Up! supplies and do not already have a demonstrator I'd love you to choose to shop from my Online Store  Be sure to use my January Host Code, 6Z2ARRA, when placing your order!  Remember, orders of $150 or more qualifies you for free product so there is no need to add the code for those orders.

It was a White Christmas Card

Christmas has come and gone and the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog is live AND Sale-a-bration has started.

Even so, I wanted to share with you the Christmas card I made.  No surprise...it was white on white



Sadly the bundle I used, Frosted Foliage, is discontinued.  The word Joy was stamped in Delicate Golden Glitz.  The card is all Whisper White with the exception of the panel that Joy is stamped on -- that is Shimmery White.  I love the subtle contrast, it is my favorite combo!  I added some
Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.

I also forgot to post two other cards I made:

This first one is again white on white.  I embossed the Seasonal Wreath 3D Embossing Folder and layered on several wreaths and some twiggy sprigs cut from the All Around Wreath Dies.  I added Basic Pearls, Snowflake Sequins and that gorgeous Classic Weave Merry Christmas Ribbon.  The Snowflake Sequins will be available again when the new catalog launches in June.

I made 10 of this next card to give to my mom to give her a head start on her cards.  It uses the Seasonal Wreath 3D Embossing Folder.  I embossed it onto a Whisper White panel and used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to highlight the embossing.  I used it to add a little Pear Pizazz ink to some of the sprigs as well.  I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and ribbon bow.  The Merry was stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink using the Merry Christmas to All Photopolymer stamp set  That top panel was layered onto a Shaded Spruce Card Stock Panel.  The card base is Whisper White.


Thank you for looking!  I promise my next card will be from the new Mini Catalog!  Right now it's Sale-a-bration (SAB) time as well.  For every $50 in product you purchase you get to choose a free set from the SAB catalog.  If you want to purchase Stampin' Up! supplies and do not already have a demonstrator I'd love you to choose to shop from my Online Store  Be sure to use my January Host Code, 6Z2ARRA, when placing your order!  Remember, orders of $150 or more qualifies you for free product so there is no need to add the code for those orders.

"Casing" a Favorite Demonstrator

This card is a "CASEd" card (Copy And Share Everything) from a fellow demonstrator from Germany, Jenni Pauli.  Her work is amazing and mine doesn't really live up to hers, but it was fun to try.  I think I would like it better had I not textured the card stock -- the texture grabbed the ink a bit too much.


I applied ink to the Whisper White Card Stock that I had embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder.  Using a Stampin Sponge I applied the following inks with a light touch Mink Macaroon, Golden Glitz Delicata, Daffodil Delight and I think a touch of Crumb Cake.  Don't miss the opportunity to get the silver Delicata ink, the gold and copper just sold out!


The leaf is cut from the Tropical dies from Mink Macaroon Card Stock.  I stamped the greeting from Rooted in Nature in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White Card Stock and cut it using one of the dies from the Ornate Frames Dies. The frames are in the Holiday Catalog and are only available through January 2 -- you don't want to miss them.

I pierced holes in the label with the Take Your Pick Tool and threaded Linen Thread through.  The label is mounted with Dimensionals

I finished it off adding some sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment and the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  Again, using that great Take Your Pick Tool to pick up and place the sequins.
