Wonderful Romance Leaf Trim Card - Video


Today's card features another one made with the Wonderful Romance Bundle from the Occasions Catalog. I said the last time I made a card with this bundle that I would use the beautiful leaf trim die in the Wonderful Floral Framelits next time, and here it is.

There are few things I learned about this die, especially when die-cutting out of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I show what I learned in the video below.

Stained Glass Technique - All That You Are


Today's card features the beautiful All That You Are Stamp Set and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP). The stamp set is in the Stampin' Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog.

The Botanical Butterfly DSP is a Level One Item in the 2019 Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalog. It's one of the SAB products that we've been told will probably sell-out early, so make sure to get it ASAP!

I used the Stained Glass Technique on this card. I used Stampin' Blends in the technique. It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but do you see the two-tone effect in the flowers and leaves? Yes, Stampin' Blends do this, but you have to use them differently on vellum. They don't blend like they do on cardstock.

I've made a video tutorial on how to make this card, and it's below. You'll find the paper dimensions and supply list for the card below, too.


Dimensions:
  • Highland Heather:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Botanical Butterfly DSP:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Vellum Cardstock:  3" x 4-1/4" (flower layer)
  • Whisper White:  3" x 2" (greeting label)
  • Whisper White 5/8" Polka-Dot Tulle Ribbon:  (2) 4"

All Geared Up to Celebrate


I made a version of this card for my daughter's boyfriend for his birthday. He owns a black car, so I had to make sure this car was black, too. I made this card so I could share it with you, only changing the greeting from Derek's card. This one still works for a birthday, but it can be used for any celebration. I was inspired by a card I saw in Pinterest, but there was no information on who made it. Mine is similar to it, but I changed it up a bit.

This card features the Geared Up Garage Bundle, along with the coordinating Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper & Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon.

The bundle includes the Geared Up Garage Cling Stamp Set and the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies. When you purchase the bundle, you save 10%! I just love the large gear die that comes in die-set, along with all of the other little gears. You can see a picture of the bundle below.

Beauty Abounds Foil Butterfly Card & Video


I've been dying to use the big butterfly dies in the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, and I finally got to make a card with them. I used Grapefruit Grove foil from the Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Isn't it beautiful on the butterflies? BAD NEWS, THOUGH! This foil has been so popular that it has SOLD OUT already! I still wanted to share this card, though, since there are so many of you with this wonderful foil! You still need ideas. 😃

I also used the stamp set that coordinates with it, Beauty Abounds. It's a cling stamp set (red rubber). If you purchase the stamp set and dies together as a bundle, you'll get 10% off!

This month, Stampin' Up! challenged demonstrators to make a birthday card for the #simplestamping campaign. This is the one I've come up with. The Painted Seasons Stamp Set is perfect for a #simplestamping card. The detail in the stamps is so beautiful! No need for anything else to make the card gorgeous!

  3. Stamp the other flower stamp three times onto the same piece, around the Blackberry Bliss flowers, using the So Saffron Classic Stampin' Pad. (see left picture).
  4. Ink only the leaves of the trio leaves stamp with the Mint Macaron Classic Stampin' Pad, and stamp them around the Blackberry Bliss flowers. Stamp the small asterisks stamp around the flowers using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad (see left picture).
