Driving By (A Free Set by Stampin’ Up)

Driving By is a new stamp set by Stampin’ Up. And, it is also FREE with a $50 purchase! The stamp set is part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion that is active through February 2022.

Today’s Video

Working with the Driving By Stamp Set was so much fun. I love it when Stampin’ Up gives us outline images! As a result, we have the opportunity to choose from several different techniques to color the images. We could use Watercolor Pencils, Water Painters and ink, Stampin’ Write Markers, Stampin’ Blend Markers, Blending Brushes, and paper piecing.

More Driving By Cards

As you can see in the video, I chose paper piecing for my technique to share on camera. In addition to this card, I also made two other cards that were colored using the Stampin’ Blends Markers.

This is just such a happy card. I love the bright colors! And I don’t think that either the still photos or the video catch the sparkle of the ribbon or the Wink Of Stella on the balloons.

It has been a while since I have made a square card. I feel that some people shy away from them because they think the postage will be more. However, If the card is made to fit inside our regular Medium Envelopes, there is no additional postage.

I hope that you enjoyed seeing today’s cards. Remember that Sale-A-Bration only lasts until the end of February!

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

Pretty Pumpkins by Stampin’ Up

I was so excited to finally sit down and play with the Pretty Pumpkins bundle! Both the stamp set and die set have lovely images that can be used for all types of cards.

Today’s Video

Using several colors on a stamp gives such depth and life to an image. For that reason, I chose to demonstrate that technique today. Our Stampin’ Write Markers come in every color that Stampin’ Up carries. But, we don’t use them nearly as often as we should. The Stamparatus tool allows us to easily use multiple colors on our images!

More Pretty Pumpkin Cards

In contrast, these two above images were colored using our Stampin’ Blends Markers. You get a totally different look and feel to your cards!

I used Crumb Cake Ink and stamped the smaller pumpkin. Clear Embossing Powder was quickly sprinkled over the image and it was heat set. The same process was used for the sentiment. I die cut the larger pumpkin from a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock. A twine bow adds the finishing touch.

Finally, my last card of the day might be my favorite one. I wanted a simple yet elegant card for fall. I used a fall-type sentiment, but a birthday or wedding sentiment would also work very nicely.

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