Wonderful World by Stampin’ Up

The Wonderful World Bundle is an amazing gift with purchase offered by Stampin’ Up. You can earn this bundle as a part of Stampin’ Up’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. The bundle consists of Designer Series Paper and a stamp set.

Today’s Video

The images from the stamp set may not appear like much on the case or in the catalog, but WOW do they stamp beautifully! Today I used Blending Brushes, but you could also use our Stampin’ Write Markers to add color to the stamps.

More Wonderful World Cards

Additionally, don’t forget that my inspiration came directly from the catalog. My card doesn’t look just like that one, but it provided an idea to get me started. Remember that the catalog can also be referred to as an idea book!

This bundle can be yours for FREE with a $100 purchase until August 31st or until supplies are gone.

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Hippest Hippos by Stampin’ Up

I am so happy that I chose the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up as my gift with purchase recently. Additionally, I was able to get the coordinating Hippo Dies. They work together to make the happiest cards! And the Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper just pulled everything else together.

Orchid Oasis is my favorite of the new In Colors. So, I knew that I would be using that color on my card. So Saffron never sees a lot of love and that is why I chose it for my second color. I am not sure why I don’t use it very often!

Stampin’ Up’s Blending Brushes are the perfect tool to lay down color on the Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper. I am often asked how I store and clean my brushes. I have a brush for every color of the rainbow. They are stored in a mason jar on a shelf by my desk. I simply swirl my brushes on scrap/grid paper when I am done using them to remove the excess ink. I put them back in the jar. That’s it!

Fun Hippest Hippo Cards

The ballerina hippo was just calling my name as I designed today’s card. It is just the sweetest little image. And the dies offered so many options to add interest to my card. You really need to make sure you get both the stamp set and the dies.

Of course, we cannot forget our other hippo friends! They are just as cute. 🙂 I just cannot recommend the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set enough.

Just a reminder that Sale-A-Bration ends on August 31, 2022. Now is the perfect time to get restocked on all of the basic supplies or order prepaid Paper Pumpkin codes!

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Harvest Meadow by Stampin’ Up

When the Holiday Mini Catalog came out, I was immediately drawn to the Harvest Meadow Suite. I am a fall girl at heart and these colors just drew me in!

Today’s Video

I will admit that I bought this entire suite. The images and sentiments of the stamp set work for so many different occasions. However, on today’s card, I used a Happy Birthday sentiment from a different stamp set because that is the kind of card I needed.

The Timeworn Type Embossing Folder is one that you will find yourself using all of the time! And adding the Soft Succulent Ink just emphasizes the raised parts of the cardstock.

More Harvest Meadow Cards

I loved the examples shown in the catalog. So, that is where I started to play! If you ever find yourself needing a jumping off point, I would suggest copying one the catalog examples. That will get your creative juices flowing!

This fun fold card was great to make. Because of the design, I was able to use and showcase many different images from the stamp set.

I particularly love the trim in this suite. Therefore, this is my favorite of today’s cards!

Pool Party is not listed as one of the colors in the DSP, but that is exactly what color that I saw. This was a different color combination but I feel that it works.

I hope that you were inspired today to try this terrific suite of products. The suite is just jam packed with goodness! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative.

The New Stampin’ Up 2020-2022 In Colors are here….

You will love the new Stampin’ Up In Colors for 2020-2022! They are Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, and Cinnamon Cider. We will also be using the new Celebrating Sunflowers stamp set. The result is a set of very colorful and cheery cards!

Each year, Stampin’ Up introduces five new colors that are in addition to our regular color line up. These are called In Colors. They will be available from 2020-2022. That also means that we had to say goodbye to our five 2018-2020 In Colors. This process allows Stampin’ Up to introduce colors that are on trend and in style! I think that you are going to be able to make some great projects and cards with these new In Colors!
