Stampin’ Up! Grown With Love friend card

Stampin' Up! Grown With Love friend card

Another color challenge!  This one featuring the Stampin’ Up! Grown With Love friend card.  As much as I love gardens I had yet to use this wonderful and fun set!  Love the ” little red wagon” and the fall colors!  This weeks color challenge colors were Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed curry, Daffodil Delight, and White.

Remember!  You can save 10% by purchasing the Grown with Love Bundle! Start with an A2 card base of thick white cardstock cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The second layer is Cajun Craze cardstock cut at 5″ x 3 3/4″.  Finally the top white embossed layer is cut at  4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.  This layer is embossed using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured embossing folder.   The DSP is cut at 1.5″ x 4 7/8″.  Add the ribbon to finish off the Stampin’ Up! Grown With Love friend card.

I used Stampin’ Up! markers to color directly to the stamp for the vegetables.  Huff  🙂 Stamp 🙂  Remember to make your envelope pretty too!

This Stampin’ Up! Best Birds Side Step Card Tutorial is a sweet wedding card. I  focus on cutting the template and assembling the finished parts in the video tutorial 🙂  I love the depth and detail of step cards! 

After the video tutorial below I have a link to the PDF template for the side step card 🙂  I do show in the video how I used blender pens and the ink pads to color.  However the main focus is on the template and the assembly (which is long enough!  LOL…) Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with banner card

Love my simple Brightly Lit Christmas Lamppost with banner card.  Other than some easy sponging this Christmas card is very quick. Notice the small “flame” inside the light? It’s the little things!

Start with an A2 card base in Whisper White cardstock.  The dimensions are 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The Cherry Cobbler layer is 5.25″ x 4″, and the top white layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  Emboss this top layer with the Falling Snow embossing folder.

Cut out the lamppost pieces in black cardstock, and remember to cut a small top in crushed curry to make the “flame”.  Cut the banner and stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Attach the lightpost using the fine tip glue pen.  Add a small silver bow, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up! A Little Wild card & video

Here’s my Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video.  I had so much fun with this cute little expecting baby card! Even my little furry companion had to make an appearance! I left the blooper in the video for laughs, since it happens to be a common occurrence!

Start with an A2 cardstock base in Bermuda Bay.  Cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  The whisper white cardstock layer is 5.25″ x 4″ and this layer is embossed with the layered leaves folder.  I absolutely LOVE the 3D Dynamic impressions embossing folders!!

Use the Bloomin Heart thinlet die to create the heart background in smokey slate cardstock.  And cut the flowers and tiny laurel pieces out of the bermuda bay cardstock.  Attach with the Tombow liquid glue.

Stamp and die cut the baby elephant from the “A Little Wild” bundle.  I cut the tag top off and stamped a sentiment on the inside, just tucking the edge under a flower to stay closed.  Stamp the congratulations sentiment, add the ribbon, and remember to make your envelope pretty!
