Sneak Peak Tasteful Labels Dies

Today's card will show you the versatility of the Tasteful Touches Bundle.  It is one of the items that demonstrators can preorder from the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It will be available to customers on June 3! I used a die in the Tasteful Labels that made me think of the mid century modern style.  That is not at all what the bundle is about as you can see in this picture.  Can you guess which die I used?


Here is my creation


My card base is an A2 Whisper White top fold card.  I used Coastal Cabana and Basic Black layers.  The Coastal Cabana layer was embossed with the retired Stone 3D Embossing Folder, and until this moment I could have sworn it was in the new catalog but it is not...sorry about that. It made me think of the stone fireplace in "The Brady Bunch"!


I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, and Whisper White for cutting the shapes.  The accents were cut from dies in the Poppy Moments Dies using Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Pretty Peacock. I think the "You are the Best" greeting in this set would be a good match for the style, but I went with Smile from the Daisy Lane stamp set, stamping in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink


I added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels to complete the card.  Hope it makes you smile!

Bee Thankful

It's a conundrum, create with a favorite set that is retiring soon or create with one of my preorder sets from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Today the retiring soon set won.  I love the Honey Bee Bundle from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog...that bee in the Detailed Bee Dies is to die for (pun intended).


This card couldn't be simpler, die cut the bee from Gold Foil Sheets. On a 4"x5.25" Whisper White panel, stamp the leaf images in Pear Pizazz, overlapping the end of the stem just a little - though I realize now that the ends are covered so my precision placement is lost.

Stamp the greeting with Versamark, use the Heat Tool to heat emboss with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Die cut the greeting with the smallest die in the Stitched So Sweetly dies (not retiring!) It's like the greeting was made for the die.


I couldn't stop there and added a little Wink of Stella to the flowers on the leaf garlands.


The bee is mounted using Mini Glue Dots, the greeting is mounted with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The panel is mounted to an A2 size card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

You still have a few more days to make the Honey Bee Bundle yours. If you want to purchase Stampin' Up! supplies and do not already have a demonstrator I'd love you to choose to shop 24/7 from my Online Store and have your supplies delivered to your doorstep!

Sneak Peak Forever Fern Bundle

Today I'm excited to introduce you to the Forever Fern Bundle -- a sneak peak into the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It is already a new favorite!  In addition to the bundle I used the Greenery Mini Embossing Folders


The embossing on the background is from two mini folders, laid side by side with the Soft Sea Foam Cardstock  between both them.  The gorgeous ribbon is the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon which I colored ombre effect with the Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blend, it is tied to hide the slide seam where the two embossing folders meet. I also used that Stampin' Blend to add some color to some of the raised elements.


I stamped one of the leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set using Soft Sea Foam and cut it out with a die from the Forever Flourishing Dies.  I cut out another leaf spray from Shaded Spruce.  I highlighted some of the raised embossing with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.  I stamped the greeting onto a Soft Sea Foam panel using Shaded Spruce Ink, I cut the decorative ends of that panel using another sneak peak product, the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch. The embossed panel was mounted onto a Shaded Spruce panel.  The card base is Whisper White using a top fold.

I popped that panel up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added some (5 of them, gasp) 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots -- they are self adhesive and just beautiful!  I added a white dot to the "berries" with my White Stampin' Chalk Marker

All Geared Up to Celebrate

I made this card awhile ago and am just now getting around to sharing it...one of my all time favorites! We all need guy cards, right? This one couldn't be simpler.



Basic Gray panel 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder

Emboss a panel of Copper Foil Sheet with the Subtle Embossing Folder then use Garage Gears Dies to cut  gears from the embossed Copper Foil Sheets.

Stamp greeting from Geared Up Garage Stamp Set on a Basic Gray Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then cut the greeting with your die cutting/embossing machine using Stitched Rectangle Dies.

I used Tombow Multipurose Liquid Glue to adhere most of the gears. 

The greeting is popped up with Black Stampin' Dimensionals as were a couple of the gears.

The base card is also Basic Gray, lined with a Whisper White panel.

Paris in the Spring

Did I mention that my trip to Paris was cancelled?  Well, actually I should say it was postponed, so another year of anticipation and planning!  Still consoling myself by playing with the Parisian Beauty Bundle.


In addition to the Parisian Beauty Bundle I used the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I love how the Gold Foil swirl follows the line of the Eiffel Tower (I did trip off a little loop).  The scallop accent was created with one of the dies in the Lily Pad Bundle from the retired Sale-a-bration set.

To finish the card off I added some Champagne Basic Rhinestones.


To further console myself I made some french macarons...and ate too many of them.


Thanks for looking!  Hope we'll all be traveling again soon but in the meantime we can stamp and bake! Stay well.

April in Paris

One of my very favorite suites from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog (that's a mouthful!) is the Parisian Blossoms Suite and the Parisian Beauty Bundle is my favorite within the suite.  So, while it is April in Paris, there is no Paris in April for me. I am consoling myself, making a Paris themed card...it's as close as I can get to Paris right now, and I'm supposed to be IN Paris right now. Tomorrow I'm going to bake some macarons, while they won't be from Laduree'  as I had planned, they will have to do.  But, back to the card.



Here are the details:

Whisper White base 11x 4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2
Basic Black Card Stock 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 1/4


From Basic Black Card stock die cut the Eiffel Tower using the Parisian Dies (to save paper I cut it from the Basic Black layer. Adhere to DSP with Tombow Multipurpose Glue

From Silver Foil Paper die cut the swirl using the Parisian Dies, adhere with Tombow

On a scrap piece of Basic Black stamp the word Amour from the Parisian Beauty stamp set in Versamark and emboss with White Embossing Powder, trim to fit.  I mounted it on the Eiffel Tower with Black Mini Dimensionals.  White embossing on black is one of my new favorite things!

Fussy cut some flowers from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I glued some on and some are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals

Add a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and voila!



I love the foil accents on the Designer Series Paper...well I love it all!  I hope I inspired you to bring a little Paris to your projects!
