Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle

Today’s card was created using the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes and the Cup of Tea Bundle which includes the Cup of Tea stamp set and Teacup Dies

 

 

Tea Boutique

 

I started with one of the Tahitian Tide card bases included in the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes.  Then I used the Scalloped Contours Dies to cut a scalloped rectangle out of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink using the stamp set, Cup of Tea, towards the bottom of the scalloped rectangle so I’d have plenty of room for the teacup and greenery.

 

 

 

I used the Teacup Dies to cut a teacup out of Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper found in the 2022-2024 In Color 6″  x 6″ Designer Series Paper Assortment pack. Before adhering it to the front of the card, I stamped the greenery using Granny Apple Green ink and for the flowers, Sweet Sorbet ink. 

 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Fine Sparkle Gems around the teacup. I love the decorative envelopes that are included with the card bases!

Stampin’ Up! Texture Chic Designer Series Paper

 

Before sharing today’s card, I just found out that this Thursday, September 15th, Stampin’ Up! is having a 24 Hour, 15% off stamp sale on every single stamp set from the Annual Catalog (host stamp sets are not included in the sale). Get your shopping list ready! Click HERE for a list of all the stamps, item numbers and sale prices. 

Details

  • Sale Begins on September 15th at 12:00 am (Mountain Time)
  • Sale ends on September 15th at 11:59 pm (Mountain Time)
  • Save 15% on all stamp sets in the Annual Catalog
  • Host sets are excluded from the sale
  • Available while supplies last
  • This stamp sale only happens once a year!

 

Today’s card was created using Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, Speedy Recovery (this stamp set will be on sale Thursday). I also did some embossing which always takes a card up a notch! 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Petal Pink cardstock for the base of my card. Then I cut two pieces of Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and a piece of Petal Pink cardstock, all the same size (you can find the measurements below the Supply List).  I placed the Petal Pink inside the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Next, I adhered all three pieces to a piece of Basic White cardstock and then adhered that piece to the front of the card. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Versamark ink and the stamp set, Speedy Recovery.  I sprinkled gold embossing powder over the sentiment and then heat embossed it (you can find directions for heat embossing below). I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies. I used the Painted Labels Dies to cut the decorative circle out of Gold Foil and then adhered the sentiment to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card front. 

 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Festive Pearls, in gold, to the front. 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder. Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image is transformed (it will be shiny)!

  • Petal Pink cardstock: 3-5/8″ x 1-1/4″
  • Basic White cardstock: (2) 5-1/4″ x 4″

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Bundle and Mini Pocket Envelope Dies

Today I have another treat holder to share with you today that was made using the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers Bundle and the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies. The Fresh Cut Flowers Bundle includes the stamp set, Fresh Cut Flowers and the Fresh Cut Stems Dies. During the month of September (or while supplies last) you can purchase the Fresh Cut Stems Dies or if you don’t have the stamp set, the bundle is available with a savings of 10%. This bundle is part of the Perfect Partners Promotion. Six current stamp sets have coordinating dies that will only be available this month! 

 

 

 

 

I used the the envelope die in the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies to cut a piece of Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper. Then I folded on all the score lines and added Mini Glue Dots to the side and bottom tabs BUT I would recommend using Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Glue. When I made the one I shared last week (you can see it here), I added Baker’s Twine and I noticed no puckering.  When I made this one, I did notice puckering.  I could have added more Mini Glue Dots but next time, I’ll just use Tear & Tape. 

 

 

 

Next, I stamped the flowers from the stamp set, Fresh Cut Flowers, onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Ink. Then I colored the flowers using my Stampin’ Blends:  Fresh Freesia (Light and Dark), Old Olive (Light and Dark) and So Saffron (Dark). I cut the flowers out using the Fresh Cut Stems Dies, added adhesive to the back and adhered it to the mini envelope. 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Fresh Freesia ink and the stamp set, Soft Seedlings. I cut the sentiment out using one of the dies in the Mini Pocket Envelope Dies, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the mini envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Texture Chic Designer Series Paper & Last Chance for Abigail Rose Card Sampler

Last week I featured the Basic Borders Dies and I couldn’t help but play with them again using Texture Chic Designer Series Paper. I have two cards to share with you. 

 

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card. Before adhering it to the front of the card, I placed a piece of Petal Pink cardstock (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List) inside the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I like using bright colors and Petal Pink isn’t one of my favorites but I have to say I love it with this paper! 

 

 

 

I used the Basic Borders Dies to cut a piece of Texture Chic Designer Series Paper and then adhered it to the front of the card. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using gold embossing powder (found in a set called Metallics Embossing Powders), Versamark ink and the stamp set, Cup of Tea. If you’ve never heat embossed before (you’ll love it and it’s easy), you can find the directions below. I cut the sentiment out using the Stylish Shapes Dies and then cut another larger stitched circle out of Gold Foil.  I adhered the sentiment to the foil circle, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the card. 

 

 

 

 

To complete my card, I added three Festive Pearls to the front of the card. These pearls have been on backorder but  are now back in stock! 

 

 

Here’s one more card I made and although you might think it’s the same card, the design of the paper is different. 

 

 

 

How to Heat Emboss

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy (an anti-static pouch that can be found in the Embossing Additions Tool Kit) over the surface of the paper as it helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder. Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it.  Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image and then shake off any excess. Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so your paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch as your image is transformed (it will be shiny)!

  • Petal Pink cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Texture Chic Designer Series Paper: 4″ x 3-3/4″  place the die in the right hand corner (on the shorter side) and the opposite left bottom corner

Stampin’ Up! Mini Pocket Envelope Dies

Today I’m sharing a treat holder I made using the Stampin’ Up! Mini Pocket Envelope Dies. If you need little treat holders, these dies make it easy to create them really fast! Since school has started up again, my mind went to teacher treats. I was an elementary teacher for 22 years and it’s hard not to think about the beginning of a new school year.  I have a Ghirardelli chocolate inside and what teacher wouldn’t enjoy one after school? Yes, please!! 

 

 

 

I made my Pocket Envelope using Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper and the Mini Pocket Envelope die. After cutting it out, I folded along all the score lines and then added Mini Glue Dots along two of the edges and assembled the envelope.  Really easy! 

 

 

 

Next, I used the Apple Harvest Bundle to stamp the apple in Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock and cut it out using the Apple Blossoms Dies. Before cutting it out, I colored it using Real Red,  Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I added my chocolate to the envelope and then wrapped White Baker’s Twine around the envelope three times and tied it off in the center of the envelope.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the apple and placed it on the envelope. 

The Apple Harvest Bundle includes the Apple Harvest stamp set and the Apple Blossoms Dies.  This bundle is part of the Perfect Partners Promotion. The stamp set can be found in the Annual Catalog but the dies (and bundle) are only available until September 30 or while supplies last. To download the flyer for this promotion, click here (there are two pages).

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Lovely You. I cut it out with the Playful Piggy Dies (another set of dies in the Perfect Partners promotion and only available until September 30th or while supplies last) and adhered it to the envelope.

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper

Today’s card was created using Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper and the Amazing Thanks Dies. This card may look like it’s hard to make but it really isn’t! 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for my card base.  I then used the Amazing Thanks Dies to cut the word thanks out of Early Espresso cardstock (the chunkier thanks) and one out of Basic White cardstock (the “thinner” one). I used Multipurpose Glue to adhere the two pieces together and then added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back (I had to cut some of the dimensionals in half). 

Then I cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper in half on the diagonal (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). For each piece I placed the top right corner (on the shorter side) and the bottom left corner in the track of my Paper Trimmer and then cut. I then glued the Designer Series Paper to the cardstock and then adhered them to my card front. 

 

 

 

Amazing Thanks Dies Stampin Up

 

Then I adhered the “thanks” between the two pieces. To complete the card, I added three Rhinestones.

Stampin’ Up! This Birthday Piggy Bundle

Today’s card was made using one of the new dies in the Perfect Partners promotion, the Playful Piggy Dies. I also used Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and the stamp set, This Birthday Piggy. The dies are available in the This Birthday Piggy Bundle or you can purchase them separately. The dies (and bundle) are only available until September 30, 2022 or while supplies last!

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base of my card.  Then, I cut three pieces of Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper into three strips and adhered them to the front of the card. I stamped the pig onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento ink and then colored him with these Stampin’ Blends:

  • Petal Pink (Light and Dark)
  • Pool Party (Light and Dark)
  • Daffodil Delight (Light)
  • Soft Suede (Light)
  • Fresh Freesia (Light)

I cut the pig out using the Playful Piggy Dies.

 

 

 

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut a scalloped circle out of Balmy Blue cardstock and another circle out of Basic White cardstock. I adhered the two together, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the center of the card. 

I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink using the stamp set, This Birthday Piggy and then cut it out using the Playful Piggy Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the back of the pig then added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of both the pig and sentiment and adhered them to the front of the card.

 

 

 

To complete the card, I added three Fine Sparkle Adhesive Backed Dots around the pig.  These gems are super sparkly!

Two Specials and Stampin’ Up! Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper

Happy September 1st! This year is flying by, isn’t it? September reminds me of fall weather but here in California we’re having anything but fall temperatures. Yesterday it was 108 degrees and today isn’t going to be much better. Please send some fall weather our way!   

I have a card to share with you today but first, to kick off September, Stampin’ Up! has two specials!

 

 

For the next four Thursdays, Stampin’ Up! will be introducing new Weekly Deals. This week they are offering embellishments, Designer Series Paper, dies and more but everything is while supplies last!! For the most up to date information CLICK HERE to go to the Weekly Deals page on my Stampin’ Up! online store. 

 

 

Stampin’ Up! is offering six NEW dies that coordinate with stamp sets from the Annual & Mini Catalogs. You can purchase the bundles and save 10% or you can purchase just the dies if you already own one of the stamp sets.  These dies are available while supplies last! Below, I’ve listed the bundles along with the individual stamp sets and dies.  If you prefer, you can look at a flyer HERE or see these products on my Stampin’ Up! online store HERE

 

 

I have one more card to share with you using the Basic Borders Dies.  Unfortunately the Aspen Tree Dies and the Perched in a Tree Bundle are both currently unavailable but are estimated to be back in stock the week of September 26th. I also used the coordinating stamp set, Perched in a Tree, and that IS available!  Normally I don’t share products that aren’t in stock but since this was a free Sale-a-Bration gift, I’m assuming many of you do have it. 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then used one of the Basic Borders Dies to cut off a piece of the front of the card. Then I added a piece of Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper to the inside of the card. 

 

 

 

I stamped the sentiment in Memento Ink on the front of the card using the stamp set, Perched in a Tree. Then I used the Aspen Tree Dies to cut three leaves out of Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Garden Green cardstock.  I arranged them on the front of the card using a combination of Mini Glue Dots and Multipurpose Glue. 

 

To complete my card, I added three Champagne Rhinestones to the front of the card.

Supplies Needed To Create the Card Sampler

Listed below are the supplies you’ll need to complete the cards exactly as shown (or you can use what you already own). Simply click any of the products and you’ll be taken to my Stampin’ Up! online store. When placing your order, don’t forget to use the special Card Sampler Host Code (please do not use host code if your order is over $150 – see above). 

Please note:  As of this writing, the Cottage Rose stamp set is on the Low Inventory List. If it becomes unavailable, use your favorite stamp set!

Edited to Add:  The Cottage Rose stamp set is now unavailable but is expected to be back in stock the week of September 12th. 

 

 

Onto my last Sale-a-Bration card! I used the Hippest Hippos stamp set and the Hippo Dies to create today’s card. Each of these products can be earned with a $50 purchase but only until the end of today! 

Edited to Add:  Unfortunately it seems the Hippos Dies have sold out. My link for the dies takes you to the landing page and not the product and that means they are gone. I’m sorry!!!

 

 

 

To create my card, I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock. Then I used the Basic Borders Dies to cut a scalloped edge across the bottom of the front. I adhered a piece of Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper to the inside so it would peek through. 

 

 

 

I stamped the hippo in Memento ink and then colored him with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends (Light & Dark) and for the flower I used Balmy Blue Blends (Light) and Granny Apple Green (Dark). I cut the hippo out using the Hippo Dies.

I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut the Balmy Blue and Basic White circles.  Then I placed the Basic White circle in the Timber 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  I adhered the two circles together and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.

During Sale-a-Bration, the Timber 3D Embossing Folder can either be earned with a $50 order using the product number 163094 or it can be purchased using the product number 156406.

 

 

I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock using Balmy Blue ink and the stamp set, Hippest Hippos. It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  I added a little bit of adhesive to the front of the sentiment and slipped it behind the hippo. I added more adhesive to the hippo and adhered it to the circles and then placed it on the front of the card.

Stampin’ Up! Basic Borders Dies Day 2

Today is Day 2 of showcasing Stampin’ Up! Basic Borders Dies. If you missed yesterday’s card, you can see it here

Yesterday I found out that the Aspen Tree Dies – a Sale-a-Bration gift with a $100 purchase – are on the Low Inventory list. More stock will be coming in but when, I can’t say. If you’ve had your eye on these dies or the Perched in a Tree Bundle, grab them while you can!

The Aspen Tree Dies can be purchased in three ways:

Please note:  The free Sale-a-Bration option has a different product number than if you were to purchase the dies. If you are choosing the free option, be sure to use the Sale-a-Bration product number. Please see the different item numbers above. 

 

 

I had planned to space my three cards throughout the week but I’m sharing them today just in case they are out of stock soon! This first card was made with Rings of Love Designer Series Paper, a Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 purchase. 

 

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then used the Basic Borders Dies to cut the bottom into a V-shape. Then I added a piece of Rings of Love Designer Series Paper to the inside. Next, I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the stamp set, Cottage Wreaths

 

 

I placed a piece of Basic White cardstock inside the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then I adhered it to the front of the card. 

I used Memento ink to stamp the bird and branch onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Perched in a Tree  (this coordinates with the Aspen Tree Dies). Then I colored the bird using these Stampin’ Blends: Night of Navy (Light and Dark), Daffodil Delight (Light and Dark). I used the  Dark Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend for the branch and the bird’s beak and feet. I also used the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter on the bird’s belly. I then adhered the bird and branch to the front of the card. 

For this next card, I didn’t use Designer Series Paper but chose to use embossed paper for both the inside and front of the card. I also made the front embossed piece a little bit longer than on the previous card. 

 

 

 

I used all the same products but for this card, I used a Dark Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend for the branch and the bird’s feet and beak. 

 

 

For this next card, I used another design from Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.

 

 

I cut a piece of 4″ x 3- 3/4″  piece of Rings of Love Designer Series Paper and placed one of the Basic Borders Dies from the top right corner to the bottom left corner to create the shape.  I started with a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and then added a layer of Crushed Curry cardstock that I ran through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder. Then I adhered the shape I made with the Basic Borders Dies. 

 

 

Next, I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto Basic White cardstock using the stamp set, Charming Sentiments. I cut it out using the Stylish Shapes Dies (currently out of stock but estimated to be available again the week of September 19th). I cut a larger circle out of Early Espresso and layered the two pieces together. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card. 

 

 

I used the Aspen Tree Dies to cut two small leaves out of Crushed Curry & Poppy Parade cardstock and then adhered them above the sentiment. To complete my card, I added three Brushed Metallic Dots

Stampin’ Up! Basic Borders Dies

This week I’ll be sharing several cards using the Basic Borders Dies. These dies add an interesting element to any card!

Today’s card was also created using Rings of Love Designer Series Paper.  This paper can be earned free with a $50 purchase and it’s only available until Wednesday, August 31st! I LOVE this paper and really wish it wasn’t going away. 

 

 

 

 

I started with a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and then used the Basic Borders Dies to cut the scalloped border. Then I cut a piece of Rings of Love Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink using the the stamp set, Go To Greetings

 

 

 

Next, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and ran it through the Cut & Emboss Machine using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered it to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and then placed it on the card front. I used the Beautiful Shapes Dies to cut a circle out of Basic White cardstock and then used my Paper Snips to cut a house out of the Rings of Love Designer Series Paper which I then adhered to the Basic White circle.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the circle and adhered it to the card. 

 

 

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Shapes

 

To complete my card, I used two pieces of Linen Thread to create a bow and placed a Mini Glue Dot in the center before adhering it to the house. You can find all the measurements I used to create today’s card below the Supply List.
