Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

I absolutely love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card, it’s just one of those that makes my heart happy!

Start with a Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ to create a portrait card.  Cut the Very Vanilla layer at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp your leaves onto this layer. I like to start with the lightest color in triple step stamping.  For the single leaves in between I used the two lightest colors and stamped off first! See the video tutorial below!

Once the stamping is done wrap the vanilla ribbon around and attach to the base.  Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla and punch out.  Punch out another piece in Mint and cut that one in half lengthwise to create a frame.  Pop up and add a knot.  Remember, make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card

Stampin’Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card

Stampin'Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card

We did this Stampin’Up! Mixed Drinks Beer Star card at my last Stamp A Stack event.  I always try to do a masculine card, but this would also be a great card for a beer loving gal!

Start with a Very Vanilla card base cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The next layer of Soft Suede is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and the top Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″. Don’t adhesive yet!

Cut a length of burlap ribbon about 6.5″ tie a knot toward one end and pass it through the star, now attach the vanilla and suede layer and attach the burlap ribbon.  Now you can attach the layers to the vanilla base.

Stamp the Beer outline in early espresso ink, and the “beer” in delightful dijon. (I stamped off twice first to lighten the color) Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

Stampin'Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card

This cute Stampin’Up! Sprinkles of Life Up & Away Balloon card is actually quick and easy to create.  Just one run with the Bigshot die cut machine!

The whole background is a sheet of Succulent Garden DSP (but you can use any coordinating paper!)  Punch two silver foil paper clouds and punch with the Tree Builder punch.  Stamp two clouds in smokey slate ink and punch these.

You can run the hot air balloon from the Up & Away thinlets in Bermuda Bay at the same time you run the three white backing pieces!  Attach the white pieces to the back of the balloon.  This gives a spot to hide the pop up dimensionals!

Attach the white ribbon, and make a looped bunch of silver thread.  Attach with a knot.

Stamp your sentiment and flag the ends.  Remember to make the envelope pretty!
