Stampin’ Up! Hippo & Friends Dies

Today’s card features Stampin’ Up! In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and the Hippo & Friends Dies

In Good Taste Designer Series Paper

I used the same measurements for today’s card as I did for the card I posted yesterday.  The only difference is that I changed the direction of the center piece.  If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here

The base of the card is Night of Navy cardstock and then I added a piece of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  The next layer is another piece of Night of Navy cardstock layered with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using one of the Wrapped in Texture embossing folders. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the card front. 

 

Hippo & Friends Dies

 

The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Forever Fern and was cut out using the Hippo & Friends Dies.  I love that this set has dies that layer together so that I could add a Night of Navy layer underneath the sentiment. 

 

Hippo & Friends

 

The finishing touch was adding three Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestones to the embossed Whisper White cardstock. If you’d like to make today’s card, you’ll find all the measurements I used below the Supply List.

Stampin’ Up! Magic In This Night

Today’s card features the Beautiful Autumn stamp set and Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper

 

Beautiful Autumn

 

I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card. I then added a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I normally make this layer a little bit smaller than the card base but this time I made it the same size as the base.

 

Magic In This Night

 

I added a piece of Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper to a piece of Basic Black cardstock (this Designer Series Paper can be found in the Mini Catalog). The sentiment was stamped with Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock using the stamp set, Beautiful Autumn and was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies. The scalloped oval was also cut out with these dies and I used our Black Glitter Paper for a little bit of sparkle.  

 

Black Glitter Paper Stampin Up

 

The Black Glitter Paper is unlike the Glimmer Paper Stampin’ Up! used to carry.  It’s thinner which makes it easier to use and the glitter doesn’t come off on your hands. 

If you’d like to make today’s card, below you’ll find a supply list of the products I used as well as the measurements.

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and Clearance Rack Update

It’s here! It’s here! The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is now available!! 

 

Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

 

You can now purchase this beautiful new machine that will cut images and emboss your paper. It comes with a Base Plate, a Die Plate, 2 Cutting Plates and a Specialty Plate.  You’ll just need to supply dies and embossing folders to take your crafting to a whole new level! 

 

Click here to purchase the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

 

Also available for purchase starting today is the Magnetic Cutting Plate, a thin, fully magnetic sheet with a self-healing cutting surface that will hold dies securely in place. 

 

Magnetic Cutting Plate

 

I’ve had my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine for a month (demonstrators were able to purchase it early) and I love this new machine. One of the features I really like is that the cutting platform folds up and that makes it really easy to carry. If I want to craft in the family room with my husband, I can easily transport it from room to room. 

 

Stampin Cut & Emboss

 

When I say a die-cutting machine will change your crafting life, I am very serious! Embossing a plain sheet of cardstock is like magic and it completely changes the look of a card. You also have the ability to cut images out of cardstock or cut out images you’ve stamped. I’d say it’s the most loved tool in my craft room! 

 

 

To thank you for purchasing the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine at my Stampin’ Up! Online Store, you’ll receive:

  • A Free PDF that will serve as a reference to understanding what’s in the box and the different sandwiches you’ll need as well as some tips and tricks.
  • A video that will show the Cut & Emboss Machine in action! After watching the video, you’ll have the knowledge and tools you’ll need to start using your new machine
  • Support! The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is a big investment and if you need help or have questions, you can contact me and I’ll do what I can to help you.

 

When placing your order, you might consider also purchasing several embossing folders or a set of dies, to bump your order up to $150 (before shipping/tax).  Once you hit that sweet spot, you’ll start earning Stampin’ Rewards which equals free product! An order of $150 will receive $15.00 in free product!

Stampin’ Up! All Things Fabulous Bundle

Today’s card features the All Things Fabulous Bundle which includes the stamp set, All Things Fabulous and the Fabulous Florals Dies. I made this card for a friend and waited until she received it before sharing it with you. 

 

Rectangular Postage Stamp

 

The base of my card is Flirty Flamingo cardstock (all the measurements can be found below the Supply List). Before adding a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the card base, I embossed it using the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.

 

All Things Fabulous Bundle

 

To create the flowers, I used Whisper White cardstock and Flirty Flamingo ink. There are many stamps in this set and to keep track of which flowers go together, Stampin’ Up! has labeled them on the protective sheet inside the case. Genius!

Each flower was stamped with three different stamps. I inked each stamp up and then stamped onto a piece of scratch paper before stamping onto my Whisper White cardstock (I stamped the largest image first). The leaves were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink.  

 

All Things Fabulous

 

I cut the flowers and leaves using the Fabulous Florals Dies. Two of the flowers were adhered to the embossed Whisper White piece using Multipurpose Glue and I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the top flower before attaching it to the card front. 

I inked the sentiment with Flirty Flamingo ink using the stamp set, So Sentimental. It was cut out using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back before adhering the sentiment to the front of the card. 

 

All Things Fabulous

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your demonstrator! You can place an order by clicking any of the images below to go to my Stampin’ Up! online store.  If you have questions about products you’re considering purchasing or ones you’ve already purchased, I’m just an email away (click the Email Me button on the sidebar of my blog).

Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

 

Tomorrow’s the big day! The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (#149653) will be available for purchase starting tomorrow, September 1st at my Stampin’ Up! Online Store

You’re going to love the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. You’ll be creating die cut shapes and embossed designs in no time (and wonder how you ever crafted without this machine). If you are looking to replace your Big Shot, you’ll love that this machine folds up and can be easily transported. 

 

Stampin' Cut & Emboss

 

If you’ve never used a die-cutting machine before and you’re worried you won’t know how to use it once you receive it, I’ve got you covered! When you invest in the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and purchase it through my Stampin’ Up! Online Store, I’ll be here to help you! I’ve created a PDF Tutorial that will give you all the information you’ll need to start using it the day you receive it as well as an introductory video explaining exactly how to make the different sandwiches you’ll need (that’s die-cutting lingo).

 

Stampin' Cut & Emboss

 

When you place your order tomorrow for your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine,  I’d recommend also adding a set of dies or a bundle to your order to reach $150 because then you’ll hit the sweet spot of ordering and will earn at least $15.00 in free product. You can choose any current products (maybe a free embossing folder to use in your new machine?). Anyone who purchases the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine at my Stampin’ Up! online store starting tomorrow (make sure you see my name, Tracy Bradley) will receive my FREE Stampin’ Cut & Emboss PDF and Introductory Video.
