Check out the video replay for today's class and grab the PDF too! (links are located at the end of this blog post.)

For this first card, I used a Thick Basic White card base and added a strip of Petunia Pop for a splash of color. I colored the cute coffee cups with Stampin’ Blends markers and cut them out using the coordinating Latte Love Dies. This card was incredibly fun and easy to assemble—you could make a bunch in no time! A big shoutout to Brandy at Brandyscards.com for the inspiration.

The second card makes me want to call up a friend, grab a cup of coffee, and chat for hours. I adore the color combination for all these projects. Lost Lagoon and Petunia Pop have become my favorite go-to colors.

This third card is a gift card holder—perfect for that coffee-loving friend in your life.

Hearts & Hugs - Peach Pie

Friday, June 7, 2024

Hey there! Happy Friday! Today, I'm excited to share my latest card made with the Hearts & Hugs Stamp and Die Bundle. For this project, I used a Peach Pie card base and colored and die-cut the adorable mouse image from the Hearts and Hugs stamp set.


To start, I cut a piece of 3" x 4-1/8" Thick White cardstock and stamped the plaid background in Peach Pie ink using the Sketched Plaid stamp. I adhered this to the top of the Peach Pie card base. Next, I cut a 2" x 4-1/8" piece of the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper (DSP) and attached it to the bottom of the card base, leaving a 1/8" border of the card base visible on all sides.

Then, I used the Nested Essentials dies to cut out two labels: one from Peach Pie cardstock and one from Thick Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment onto the white label and layered them in the center of the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next, I took a scrap piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and stamped the cute mouse image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored the mouse with Gray Granite Stampin' Blends and added a pop of color to the little heart with Petunia Pop Stampin' Blends. I attached the mouse to the left side of the labels using Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I added a Thick Basic White cardstock layer inside the card. I used the little hearts die from the bundle to cut out hearts at the top of the cardstock and adhered it with Multi-Purpose adhesive. Finally, I added a few In-Color Resin Dots to the card front. Voila!

Hearts & Hugs

Wednesday, June 5, 2024

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing the first of several projects featuring the Hearts & Hugs stamp and die bundle. I knew I had to create some projects with this bundle as soon as I saw it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  The cuddly animal images and sentiments in this set are adorable and coordinate perfectly!

Join me for Crafty Thursday this week as I walk you through this super cute bundle and create three additional projects!  If you haven't joined me for Crafty Thursday, hop on Facebook Live at 2:00 pm CST. 

For this card, I started with a Petunia Pop CS base, layering it with some Thick Basic White CS and a second layer of Unbounded Beauty DSP for extra flair. For some contrast, I cut a strip of the same Unbounded Beauty DSP, flipped it over and used the reverse side, then layered it toward the bottom of the card front.


For the banner, I used Petunia Pop CS and the largest banner from the Nested Essentials Dies and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then I played around with the Stylish Shapes Dies for some circles, and layered them on with dimensionals for added interest.

I stamped the adorable badgers on a scrap piece of Thick Basic White CS, colored them in with Gray Granite Stampin' Blends, and then cut them out with the coordinating die. I used Stampin dimensionals to add them to the top of the circles.

I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Thick White CS and cut it out using a banner from the Stylish Shapes Dies.  I added it to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished off the inside of the card with a piece of Thick White CS and a sweet little heart stamp in the corner.  

MEASUREMENTS:

4 1/4" X  11” Petunia Pop CS (score and fold at 5 ½”)

4 1/8” X 5 3/8" Thick Basic White CS (front)

4" X 5 1/4” Unbounded Love DSP (front)

1 3/4” X 5 1/4”  Unbounded Love DSP (front)

3” X 4 1/4" This Basic White CS (front - sentiment)

4” X 5 1/4" Thick Basic White CS (inside)

I Hope you enjoyed this project! Don't forget to join me for Crafty Thursday at 2:00pm CST on Facebook.
