Another Carols of Christmas Card

Carols of Christmas stamp setToday I am sharing another card made with the new Stampin’ Up! Carols of Christmas stamp set.  This set will be in the upcoming Stampin ‘ Up! Holiday Catalog but is available to order early – this month!

I love this set!!  It is so versatile and has a large variety of framelits to cut out a lot of Holiday images!









So the details on this card.  The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock  scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half to make the card base.  The next layer is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Cucumber Crush cardstock.  Then a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The corner framelits with the poinsettias is used on the 4 corners. 

Next Stamp 4 Poinsettias with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut them out.  You can line them up the the larger poinsettia in the middle of the die or cut them out by hand.  These are layered on top of the center corner poinsettia.  And of course I added Rhinestone Jewels to add a little bling to the poinsettias!  Every card needs a little bling.

Last Stamp the sentiment “Deck the Halls” with Cherry Cobbler ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut this piece out with the large scalloped oval from Stampin’ Up!’s Layering Ovals framelits.  Cut a second larger oval from the Cucumber Crush cardstock.  Attach the sentiment to the card with dimensionals.  Stamp a Holly leaf using Cucumber Crush ink for the leaves and Cherry Cobbler ink for the berries.  Cut out with the Holly die.  Attach next to the sentiment with a glue dot!

This is one of 4 Cards that my Stamp Club members made yesterday at our monthly Stamp Club meeting.  Want card ideas in your inbox each month?  Join my stamp club and receive exclusive ideas in your email each month!  You can check out more information on my Stamp Club here.

Need some Cool Treats to Cool off?

Today I am sharing a card made with the Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Stamp Set and using the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper.  Who doesn’t love an ice cream sundae on a hot August day!

Just as a side note – I am currently posting from Edmonton Alberta in Canada where i am visiting my son.  He started a two year project in Edmonton and moved up here in March.  Edmonton is beautiful and has a very diverse culture.  We tried Korean bingsu last night which means shaved milk.  It is their version of ice cream.  It was delicious!

Ok – back to card making – I love the Cool Treats Stamp set.  and don’t forget the matching framelits! These amazing dies make it so easy to cut out all of your cool treats to make the perfect handmade Birthday card!  The dies for the ice cream cone have some detail to them so they cut and emboss at the same time!









So here are the details of this Cool Treats card:
The card base is a piece of Pool Party cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.
The second layer is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Pool party Designer paper from the Naturally Eclectic package. 
Third is a layer of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3″ x 5 1/4″.  This layer has Washi Tape from the Basics pack layered on the bottom.

The Ice Cream scoops are stamped using Stampin’ Up!’s Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party and Peekaboo Peach classic inks and then cut out using the framelits.  The bowl is cut from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I cut 3 layers of chocolate using scraps of Chocolate Chip cardstock and a cherry from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. These are layered onto each of the ice cream scoops.  Last I used a scrap of So Saffron and cut a circle using the larger of the Stitched Framelit Circles.   The So Saffron circle is layered onto one of our Lace Doilies.  Then I built the ice cream sundae by attaching the bowl to the doily and then using dimensionals to attach each ice cream scoop to the bowl.

The last step was to stamp the message.  I used a Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write marker to color in the words “you are” and stamped this on the top of the white piece of cardstock. Make sure to clean the stamp well to get the residual ink off of the “you are”.  Then I used a Chocolate Chip and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write markers to color the “cherry to my Sundae” on a 2″ x 2 3/4″ piece of Vellum cardstock.

Attach all the layers and you have a great Summer Cool Treats Card!

Here are the supplies that I used for this card:

Happy August! Carols of Christmas stamp set

Carols of Christmas stamp setToday I am sharing the new Carols of Christmas stamp set that you can now order!  This is one of the new beautiful Holiday stamp sets that will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. 

My Stamping cohort Lisa from the Stamping New England Design team made this beautiful card.

The card base is Whisper White cardstock with a layer of So Saffron Cardstock.  Next is a layer of Pacific Point cardstock that has been cut with the sky thinlits that are part of this set, so the So saffron cardstock shows thru the moon and stars…

Lisa made the snow by tearing a few scraps of Whisper White cardstock and layering them to look like snow drifts.  The trees and deer are also cut using the framelits. 

Here is a short video highlighting some of the things that you can make with the Carols of Christmas stamp set.

Carols of Christmas Handmade Card

Carols of Christmas Today I am sharing a card that one of my team members made using the new Carols of Christmas stamp set which will be available in August.  How can it almost be August??

Perfect timing for my Christmas in July Class this Friday!  I love being part of a Stamping Team.  My group, Stamping New England gets together once a month to design projects for upcoming classes.  I can’t believe the variety of ideas that two different people can design using the same cardstock and stamp set.

The Carols of Christmas stamp set is beautiful and I can already envision so many beautiful cards with it.

Carols of Christmas stamp setAnd what really makes this set special is the thinlits that are also available.  They are beautiful!
Carols of Christmas thinlits




Here are the details on this card:
The card base is made with a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Dapper Denim cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  The first layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The outline thinlit was used around the edge of this piece of cardstock.  (You will need to run this piece of cardstock thru the Big Shot twice to outline the whole layer).  I love the detailed cuttings on this thinlit..  I see some great frames for Family Christmas pictures!  Margaret used scraps of Gold Foil and Gold Glimmer paper behind the detailed cutouts along the edge of the frame.

The next layer is the gold embossed piece of Dapper Denim Designer paper that is part of the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Paper.  This piece is cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Next is a set of pine trees cut using the pine tree thinlit with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

Last is a piece of Whisper white cardstock stamped with “Peace on Earth” and Versamark ink and embossed with Gold Embossing powder.  This sentiment is cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.

These are the products used for this project.  The Carols of Christmas stamp set will be available to order on
August 1st (146037).

Use one Sketch to make two different Cards

use one sketch to make two different cardsToday I am sharing two cards that were made from the same stamp set and Designer paper using one sketch to make two different cards.

My Stamping friend Jeannie and I were working on ideas for a Christmas in July class using the new Stampin’ Up!  Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set.

We picked a random sketch from a stack of MojoMonday sketches that I keep around for inspiration.  And as you can see our two cards are very different!

Need inspiration??  I love sketches!  I chose a sketch that has an element that matches the stamp set that I want to use.  In this case Santa’s Sleigh.  Then we selected the Be Merry Designer paper which coordinates with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green cardstocks and inks.  Did you know that Stampin’ Up! prints the colors for each designer paper on the back of the package??  I love that.  So when I am designing using a specific paper, I just pull a couple of pieces of each color of cardstock and pick out those inks.   Then it is time to design!

So the Reindeer card is made with a Cherry Cobbler Base, a layer of Whisper White and then a layer of the cute little reindeer pattern from the  Be Merry designer series paper.

The second card uses Garden Green cardstock as the base with a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock and the small triangle pattern in Garden Green that looks like trees.  I have found that if you are working with green shades, brown can be a really good color to use as a layer to set off the pattern of the designer series paper.  For this card, the design is flipped to be landscape to accommodate  the sleigh and the tree.  The Sleigh is cut from Red Glimmer paper to add a little bling to the card.  After all, what is a card without bling?

Want to make these cards?  Here are the supplies!

Ready to place an order? I would love to be your Demonstrator if you are in the US. If your order is under $150 use the Hostess code PVD36PFP and I will send you a 6x6 sampler of the Be Merry Designer Series paper.  I love to share the Host Benefits with my customers!  Of course if your order is over $150, claim your own hostess benefits!

Happy 4th of July!

HapHappy 4th of July cardpy 4th of July!  This is one of my favorite patriotic cards that my friend Margaret Galvez on the Stamping New England design team has created. Margaret always surprises with a different twist on a theme!  This card was actually designed two years ago but is so appropriate for the 4th!

This card is made with Real Red Cardsock for the card base.  A layer of Night of Navy cardstock with a layer of Newsprint Designer paper.  Small pieces of real red ribbon are layered on the corners to highlight the real red color of the card.

The flag is made from a piece of Whi
sper White cardstock.  The red stripes of our Flag are stamped with Real Red ink and the Work of Art stamp set.  The Stars are punched using the Star border punch from a scrap of Night of Navy cardstock.  The flag is attached to the card front with dimensionals to give it a little pop!

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!




Handmade Orchid Card

Today I am sharing a hhandmade orchid cardandmade Orchid card that I made with the new Stampin’ Up! Climbing Orchid stamp set...  For those of you that know me, I am a flower lover and orchids are one of my favorite sets.  So of course when I saw this set – I had to get it!  So I have had some fun playing around with it.  I am going to record a video on how to use the pieces to make different looks.

I can see some great decorative 3D items with this set!


The card base on this card is cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The second layer is a piece of Berry Burst cardstock cut to 5″ x 3 3/4″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is cut to 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ which is layered onto the Berry Burst layer.  The “enjoy today” is stamped using the new in-color Lemon Lime Twist ink pad.

The Climbing Orchids stamp set is a two part stamp.  Two part stamps allow you to get more depth on the flowers.  You can stamp the outline of the flower in one color and then stamp the inside in a coordinating color.  The other great advantage to this set is that you can purchase the set and the coordinating framelits together in a bundle and save %10! 

Each orchid is made up of 3 pieces.  The base of the orchid, the two leaf petal and the flower center.  For each piece of the orchid, there are two stamps, an outline stamp and a detail stamp.  The exception is the center of the flower which is just one piece.

The orchids are stamped on scraps of Whisper White cardstock.  The outline of the flower is stamped with Blushing Bride ink.  The detail of the flower petal is stamped using Berry Burst ink – stamped off. This means ink up your detail stamp that lines up with the outline image and then stamp the image on a piece of scrap paper.  Then stamp the image a second time on top of the outline image.   You get a layer of Berry Burst that is not quite as intense.  The center of the flowers are Berry Burst stamped at full strength.  They are not “stamped off” first.  Next cut out the orchids using the handy matching framelits!

Each orchid is assembled using a dimensional to attach the double petal to the base of the flower.  I very carefully bent the flower petals to give them some lift.  You want to be careful to not crease the flowers but just slightly bend them.  I placed the orchids on the card first to figure out where the stems should be stamped.  The stems are stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards today!  Here are the products that you need to make these cards.

…..what do you use to plan?

One of the first things that I decided I needed to buy from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog is the Love Today Planner.
The great thing about this planner is you build and customize it to meet your needs.  This means that you do need to assemble the planner.  Never Fear, I am going to walk you thru how to build the Stampin’ Up! Planner.  But It will help you get organized and track your daily activities and life!  
When you open the planner there are lots of pieces to it.

The planner includes:
1.  A Binder
2.  Monthly dividers
3.  Calendar pages
4.  Detail weekly pages
5.  Clear photo protector pages
6.  2 pockets
7.  Lots of stickers to decorate and mark individual pages.  They make it fun to check off those tasks each day!

Now – How to build your Stampin’ up! Planner

1.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT – Separate out the detail weekly pages.  The pages are divided by Mon, Tues. Wed. on one side and then Thurs., Fri., Sat., and Sun. on the other side.  Some of the back of the T,F,S,S pages have a list page.  This back page is for the end of the month.  Make a separate pile of the pages with the list on the back of the T, F, S, S page.

2.  Since this is June – I decided to start with June as the first month.  So I added the Monthly divider pages to my binder first.  The front of each Calendar month is a sheet with colored blocks which I plan on using to plot our my goals for each month.  Perfect for tracking what my goals are for each month.

3.  Next I added the calendars themselves.  Each calendar is blank so you will need to pull out your cell phone or family calendar to mark which day the month starts on and how many days there are in the month.  If you have a cute little number stamp set – you can stamp the numbers!

4.  Next add 3 of the detail weekly pages  and add one of the pages with the list on the back for the last page for that month.  You will need to write in the number for each day of the month on the detail weekly pages.  Make sure to start with the actual first day of the  month.  For example if Wednesday is the first day of the month, make sure you start numbering for that month with Wednesday.  I would add the numbers from the previous month on the Mon. and Tues.


Once you finish assembling, I added the 4 photo pocket pages.  These will be great to put all the pictures that people give you in one place to store until you can file or scrap them!

There are also 2 pocket pages which will be good to hold receipts until you record your expenses.

I love the stickers.  i used them to Decorate the Cover of my planner and some of the divider pages.  I am planning on using them to mark special events and to mark things done on my daily to do lists!.

There are also 3 batches of post-it notes…  I added these to the inside of my binder so they are handy!

Whew!  That’s it!




Did you make it thru??  I know that it takes a little time – but I think it will
be worth it to have one place to record my day and all of my expenses…

I would love to be your demonstrator…  If you don’t have a demonstrator then click below to go to my online store. If your order is under $150 use the hostess code   QXV3NADB and I will send you a package of Pearl Jewels… I love to share hostess benefits with my customers!

Last Chance for…..

The month of May is winding down and some of the Stampin’ Up! retiring items are running low.  So don’t miss out!  I thought that over the next couple of days I will profile stamp sets and papers that are retiring.

Today I have chosen the Brithday Fiesta Bundle (142268) to showcase.  I love the festive spirit of this stamp set and designer papers!  I recently used the Birthday Fiesta stamp set and Festive Birthday Designer Series paper to design a class for Cinco de Mayo!  It was a huge success!

NOTE:  These are not my original cards but ideas that I found on Pinterest and CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) for this stamp set.


These are a couple of the cards that I designed with this set!  This card with the Cactus is sooo cute.  The hats and guitars and other accessories are cut out of the Birthday Fiesta Designer series paper.  And of course I used dimensionals to make the accessories pop! 

The background on this second card is made by stamping the banner with stripes of multiple colors.
I will miss the Birthday Fiesta stamp set.  This set would be great to make party invitations, birthday cards or thank you notes!

So the Stampin’ Up! inventory report is saying low inventory for this bundle.  So don’t miss out!

Of course if your order is over $150 then claim the hostess benefits for yourself!
