A Stamper To Remember

Hey Chick Mother’s Day Card

Filed under: Projects — March 24, 2017 @ 8:05 am

The Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick stamp set is only available until March 31, so I wanted to share this cute idea for a Mother’s Day Card.  Again, I use That’s The Tag  for the greeting.  It’s such a versatile bundle!


Today’s Tip:

-Make a little grass and/or dirt for your chicks with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen so they are not floating in mid air.

-click on the thumbnails below to check out any of the products that I used.

And don’t forget, Sale-A-Bration ends soon!

That’s the Tag bundle

Filed under: Projects — March 23, 2017 @ 9:41 am

That’s the Tag is a great bundle of stamps and framelits.  It’s easy to overlook in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, but it is so versatile!  It comes with a ton of great sentiments and tag shapes to make tags, cards or page embellishments.

Here are a few more cards I made with this bundle.

Today’s Tips:

-Pair this bundle with the Blooms & Bliss Designer paper – a perfect combination.

-If you don’t want to see the tag hole, cover it with a banner or flower.

-For the daisy card, watercolor right through the spaces.

Glimmer Paper gone – dye your own!

Filed under: Projects — March 20, 2017 @ 11:50 am


Did you miss out on the Glimmer Paper Pack that I featured earlier this month?

Here’s a way to make your own glimmer paper in any Stampin’ Up! color that you want!

Take a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Put some ink refill in the top of the inkpad and sponge onto your Glimmer Paper.  (If you sponge directly from your inkpad, it will get a bit glittery).

You can also dye the Metallic Ribbon (another great Sale-a-Bration item which is still in stock at the moment).  Just pull a piece of ribbon over your inkpad while pressing down with your bone folder).  So easy!  And this ribbon is gorgeous.  The photos don’t do it justice.  It is soft and easy to tie.

Today’s Tip:

Fray the edges of the ribbon slightly – you can see the sparkly metallic threads.

Better get it soon, before it is gone like the glimmer paper – my website shop.

St Patrick’s Day – Stampin’ Up! Style

Filed under: Projects — March 15, 2017 @ 8:06 am

I wanted to make a St. Patrick’s Day card using the Hey, Chick stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  Cucumber Crush (retiring soon) seemed to be the perfect color.  And the Snow Place stamp set and matching framelit dies added the perfect accessories.

Pretty Pockets Mini-Album Tutorial

Filed under: Projects — March 11, 2017 @ 2:21 pm

The Pretty Pockets Card Kit is one of the Sale-A-Bration freebies – only available while supplies last.  A German Stampin’ Up! demonstrator showed how to make the pocket cards into a mini-album here.  I love mini-albums and this one is so fast and easy.  I made mine in about 5 minutes!  Now I just have to add some photos and journaling.  Either the kit, or the finished album would make a great gift too.


IMG_0292prettypockets minialbum

The pockets already have adhesive.  Put together the sides (top of the album) of 4 envelopes.  Insert the flap of one into a second, removing the strips to adhere.  Repeat until all 4 are connected, folding on the score lines.  I alternated the colors or you could use 4 of the same color.


Make a binding for the album.  Here I used a 2 x 4-1/4″ strip of Pool Party Cardstock and scored it at 7/8 inch from each end to leave a 1/4 inch edge to the album.  Adhere with Tear & Tape.

IMG_0291prettypockets minialbum

Insert the lined cards.  Use these for more photos or journaling.

There is white Baker’s Twine included in the kit, but I used a piece of Pool Party Stitched Satin ribbon to tie it together.  I attached the ribbon to the back using SNAIL, my favorite adhesive for ribbon.

You will have enough supplies to make two of these quick and easy albums out of one kit!  There will also be 8 regular envelopes left.  You can use these to make a traditional envelope minialbum – again by inserting the flaps together.

The Pretty Pockets card kit is free with a $50 purchase at my website shop (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST).  While you are at my website, sign up for my newsletter too!

Happy crafting!

Dragonfly Dreams Glimmer

Filed under: Projects — March 10, 2017 @ 3:11 pm

ultimate bundle, Stampin Up, starter kit, discount

Dragonfly Dreams is a popular new bundle of stamps and framelit dies by Stampin’ Up!  You can even add it to your demonstrator starter kit order and get free shipping in addition to the 10% discount on bundles.  The other nice thing about bundles is that on regular orders, they are close to qualifying for free Sale-A-Bration items like the Glimmer Paper and the Make a Medallion stamp set that I used in these cards.

Today’s Tips

-Use small strips of the glimmer paper – it really goes a long ways!

-A dry embossed background will add some dimension to your project.

-To build the medallion, just ink the larger stamps in 2 different colors – they layer perfectly.  I added one of the sentiments from the set, but you could also fill in the center with the smaller stamp that looks like a semi-circle.  Just stamp it twice in a third color.  These cut out perfectly with the Layering Circles framelits.
