Whimsy & Wonder by Stampin’ Up

The Whimsy & Wonder Suite of Products takes traditional Christmas elements and gives them a fresh twist! The colors are unconventional for the holidays. However, I think that unlocked my creativity!

Today’s Video

While we aren’t crafting a card together today, I hope that you find a card that you would enjoy recreating. The cards are uncomplicated so you should be able to duplicate one easily.

Once I got going making cards, I could hardly stop. Seriously. I stamped and die cut several of the images using the suggested colors of the suite. Then, I just jumped in! Here are all of the cards i made super quickly!

Delicate Dahlias by Stampin’ Up

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is such an all-around great set! Both the images and sentiments are friendly for creating cards for many occasions. And when a stamp set is free, it makes it even better!

In today’s video, we will take this set and use it to create a really easy fun fold card.

Today’s Delicate Dahlias Video

I am glad I decided to change things up from the original version of my card. The embossed background layer with the added Pale Papaya ink really adds a nice touch. And the Pale Papaya ribbon is so dreamy. 🙂

More Book Binding Fold Cards

I made this card with a golden wedding anniversary in mind. The Be Dazzling Specialty Paper adds just the right amount of sparkle! This paper can come off as tacky if you look at a big 6 x 6 piece of it. However, when tucked in here and there on a card, it brings a nice pop of light!

Very Vanilla just makes my heart happy. I really wish that Stampin’ Up would use it more regularly. But for now, I will just sit back and enjoy the beauty of this Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, and Black combination.

In addition to the Delicate Dahlias stamps and the Be Dazzling paper, the Peaceful Prints DSP is another Sale-A-Bration offering. Just a little 4″ x 4″ piece totally makes this card! Cards do not need to be complicated to be beautiful.

I hope that you enjoyed this simple fun fold. It is a great layout to use if you need to just try a few things out or get your creative juices flowing! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Paper Pumpkin Expressions In Color June 2021

I am so late with my Paper Pumpkin Expressions In Color alternatives! But isn’t this kit fantastic? I think that Paper Pumpkin has really upped the quality of their kits in the past year. And I really like the cards included with the kit. I had a hard time trying to decide how to approach my alternatives this month. That is why I only made one card using the kit supplies. For the other two, I used the stamp set and pulled in items from the Expressions In Ink Suite of products.

Today’s Video

The card featured in today’s video is a combination of kit supplies and other supplies I had on hand. You could totally use the large vellum flower that was included in you kit instead of die cutting a white one. And we have so many sprigs or greenery pieces that you could pull in as well. Make sure to watch the video to see both my vellum and my white cardstock versions. I was surprised that I actually like the white version better. Who knew?

This greeting card was made using supplies from the Paper Pumpkin Expressions In Color kit.  Other supplies from Stampin' Up were also used.

Undoubtedly, Evening Evergreen has stolen my heart. And no one was more surprised than me! I am not usually a dark or jewel tone color person. It is falling into the same category for me as Night of Navy. I consider it a neutral. In particular, it works perfectly for accents and sentiments. I could have chosen any color for this card, yet I chose Evening Evergreen. This would be a perfect masculine card.

This card could also be made using any color of your choice. I seem to be having an In Color phase. 🙂

Next Month’s Kit

Here is a little preview of the July 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. Please make sure that you are signed up on or before July 9th. That way you can craft along with me next time! As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative.
