Stampin Up Delightfully Detailed Laser DSP card

Stampin Up Delightfully Detailed Laser DSP card

We had fun at our stamp cub making this Stampin Up Delightfully Detailed Laser DSP card.  I love the Lovely Floral embossing folder base behind the floral focal point and had so much fun with the layers!  This card was well received and had lots of oohs and aahs for such a simple idea.

Start this card with an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold in half at 5.5″.  Place a 5.25″ x 4″ very vanilla cardstock on the inside and use the Lovely Floral embossing folder on a second one for the top layer.  Find a focal flower and some pretty leaves from the Delightfully Detailed DSP and die cut the bottom sentiment accent, a flower and the leaf buds in Highland Heather cardstock.  Finally, add some mini gold sequin trim and scatter a few around the card front.  Add a sentiment and remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin’ Up! Sea of Textures Bundle WOW card

Stampin' Up! Sea of Textures Bundle WOW card

Here’s my most recent Stampin’ Up! Sea of Textures Bundle WOW card I made for our swap group.  I loved the texture and depth of this set the first time I saw it.  Even though I’m not a huge nautical fan something just really appealed to me and I fell in love with the creative possibilities.  Be sure and watch for my next upload from the same set!

This is an A2 card base cut at 11″ x 5.5″, scored and folded in half at 4.25″.  The Melon Mambo layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and the top Vanilla layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″.  I did cut the netting from the framelit in 2 pieces as shown in the video…  I love the layers of this card and the fun bright colors!

Bubble Over Fun Background card

Bubble Over Fun Background card

Oh my goodness!  I love this Bubble Over Fun Background card!  Talk about a quick and simple Stampin’ Up! card idea!  No die cuts, no punches, just ink, paper, and a few pretty bling!  

Yes, I did cut my sentiment in half so I could make a long horizontal phrase 🙂  No worries though, i can still use it both ways and often a cut like this increases your versatility so much!  Don’t be afraid to experiment!

One quick tip for creating a background like this is to test your colors first to see if you need to stamp off and where that would look great.  Another thing I keep in mind is to stamp larger shapes in the lighter colors and smaller in the darkest.  This way you can get more of a layered look!

Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Well, having a teen made me instantly like the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration set from Stampin’ Up!  My daughter is learning to play guitar, she loves music, and of course these kind of shoes are in style right now!  Perfect! 

I knew I wanted to have the shoes and the earphones be a popped up focal point, but I felt it needed more than just stamping.  So I decided to heat emboss and fussy cut them!  It’s always hard to do justice to heat embossing on camera and video.  However, it makes such a big difference!

Cake Soiree Tag Card

Cake Soiree Tag Card

Hello!  Today’s Cake Soiree Tag Card post is part of the February 2018 Stamp N’ Hop Blog Hop!  My name is Shannon Cole and I’m happily creating in Washington State, (US!)  This month’s blog hop is anything from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, which are available until May 31st!  Yay!!   

Be sure to visit all the other blogs linked below to see everyone’s amazing creations!

There’s a funny story behind this card.  When we have our multi demonstrator stamp events we make name tags and favors for the guests.  So this was a combination of the two!  I thought it made a sweet card!

To create this card simply start with an A2 card base cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The Berry Burst layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Cut the next white layer at 4.25″ x 3.25″, and the next Berry Burst is cut at 3.75″ x 2.75″.  Finally, the inside white layer is cut at 3.5″ x 2.5″.  Add the DSP along the bottom, this is cut at 3.5″ x .5″ and add a small layer of Silver foil paper behind this!  All the rest is simply die cuts, WooHoo!  See my full supply list below!
