Another Wild About Flowers Card and Sale-a-bration 2nd Release


I am still making cards for a friend and thought I would show you one that I made for her. I am using retired Designer Series Paper in this sample but you could easily substitute with current paper Stampin’Up! offers. I will post a recommendation in my supply list.


I just love the Layering Circle Thinlits, they come with scalloped edge and regular edge framelits. I used Gold Foil cardstock for the scallop edge layer. I added a little gold heart to the Whisper White panel from the Metallic Enamel Shapes collection.


The cardstock color is Rose Red but just coordinate the color with the color in the DSP you decide to use. That is what is great about Stampin’Up! everything is color coordinated for you. The Stampin’Pad for the flower is also Rose Red. I cut the Rose Red banner that goes down the center of the card with the Triple Banner Punch. I made the banner that happy birthday is stamped on using paper snips to cut the ends into a banner shape. This banner size was too small for the Triple Banner Punch.

Here are the sizes for the Triple Banner Punch


I think this card would be beautiful with the Berry Burst Stampin’Pad and cardstock. I just didn’t happen to have that color but it is my top pick for you guys if you want to make this card. Just use the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (pictured below) for the Designer Series Paper.

Berry Burst 8-1/2

Isn’t the Berry Burst color beautiful! This is the cardstock pictured above. This is from the 2017-19 Incolor collection and you can buy an assortment pack of cardstock as well as the single color pack.

New Host Code and Bubble Over Celebration Card


Here is a happy card for you! It is certainly bright and cheery, perfect for a celebration! You could use this for a birthday or for a retirement card or perhaps a job promotion!

This card is made with the  Bubble Over Bundle of products from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog.


I like the details of this card, like the oval shapes behind the bottle. The little dashes around the edge really add a lot. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the white oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits for the scalloped oval.  I added bubbles to the card using sequins and the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Occasions Catalog. The Epoxy Shapes include circle and teardrop or raindrop shapes.


Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes # 145632

Bubble Over Bundle


This is a colorful card isn’t it? So bright and kinda sassy! This card is made with the new Bubble Over Bundle from the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalog. The bundle includes the Bubble Over Photopolymer Stamp set and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies.  You save 10% when you buy the bundle but you can purchase them individually.


Don’t you just love the details in this bundle? There is a framelit to cut the bottle tops out! I used silver foil cardstock for the bottle tops. I used the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes, also sold in the Occasions Catalog, to accent the small bubbles. I used some sequins to enhance the larger bubbles. I am often inspired by other stampers and the inspiration for this card from Vicky Wright’s card, she is a Stampin’Up Demonstrator in Australia.


The Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 (before shipping and tax) purchase because it is a Sale-a-bration offering.

The bottles were cut out with the appropriate framelit and then colored by running the sponge brayer over the stamp pad and then over the bottle in a back and forth motion.

I hope you like my card and it inspires you to CREATE!

I absolutely love the die cuts in the kit. The floral design reminds of the Lots of Lavender stamp set which is a Sale-a-bration stamp set. The vellum leaves really add a nice soft look!


Also included in this kit are 4 Watercolor Pencils! The Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist colors are exclusive to this kit. You can view this kit in my online store here. The Blender Pens are recommended for the watercolor technique but you can also just color the images with the Watercolor Pencils without watercoloring.

I know you will enjoy this kit just for yourself too!

Have a great day and be sure to take time to CREATE!

Happy Papercrafting,



Lots of Lavender by Stampin’Up!


What do you think? Isn’t this bouquet of lavender beautiful? This stamp set is a photopolymer set called Lots of Lavender. It is a FREE stamp set you get with a qualifying purchase. You can see it in the Sale-a-bration brochure here.

I “fussy” cut the bouquet of lavender out with the paper snips and mounted it on the Whisper White panel using Stampin’Dimensionals. The square shape was cut out using the Big Shot and the square framelit from the Stitched Shapes Framelits collection.

The cool thing about this stamp set is the solid images. They will color the leaves and the flowers, just stamp the outline image in Archival Black ink. Then ink up the solid image and stamp over it. I used Wisteria Wonder Stampin’Pad for the flower and Pear Pizazz for the leaves.


I added a gold metallic circle shape to the right and left corner. The ribbon is stamped with Sahara Sand Stampin’Pad. I added a panel of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock under the square shape.


The very last thing I added was the greeting on the card and of course I stamped it crooked! I hate when that happens. The greeting stamp is an old retired stamp that is wood mount so it was hard to line up because you can’t see through the block.

I hope you all like my card and it inspires you to CREATE! The Sale-a-bration promotion ends March 31!

Party Pandas by Stampin’Up!


Isn’t he the cutest little Panda? This is the most adorable stamp set! It comes in wood mount or clear mount, and it is FREE with a qualifying order! I used paper from the Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper that is also FREE with a qualifying order.


The banner is made with Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the Banner Triple Punch. There is a little design in the DSP that has the Lemon Lime Twist color in it so I just went with that. This stamp set comes with 3 greeting stamps! Love it! These cards are bright and cheery!

Here are some with a black and white theme, perfect since this ties in with the Panda!


Striking isn’t it? Just simple black and white with a splash of red! Don’t you love the Happy Birthday font?


Here is a different idea using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make a tag. Again keeping with the black and white color scheme with a splash of red. The Designer Series Paper is retired but there are 3 different Designer Series paper in the Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog with a black and white design. I will list at least one of them in the supply list.
