Hey there! I decided to have a Creativity Your Way session in my Facebook Live video today. Creativity Your Way (which happens to be the title of this year’s Annual Catalog) means that whatever kind of crafter you are, and however you like to craft, you can do it with Stampin’ Up!. So I made a basic card, a stepped-up card, and an all-out card, all using the same stamps, dies, and colors.
I used the colors from this week’s Global Design Project color challenge for my cards. I’m BONKERS over this color combo. Three of my absolute faves.
I started with this clean and simple card using only stamps, ink, and rhinestones. So easy and fast!
For my second card, I stepped it up a little with a few die cuts and Dimensionals. Just a little more work to make quite an impact on the card! Extra texture and dimension are so easy with Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating bundles. The tiny HELLO sentiment was an “oops I forgot to add a sentiment before sticking on all these rhinestones”, but I think it works!
For my final card, I went all out. I added gorgeous designer series paper from the Naturally Eclectic bundle, more die cuts, stamping on the card base behind the paper, twine, and a wooden element. And then to top it off, I both stamped and die cut my sentiment.
I made a card liner for the all-out card using the same stamps and colors.

Hello, and welcome! This is my entry for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights, and you can VOTE for my cards here (I am #41). I would love to have your vote! The theme this month is BABY. I looked through my baby stamp sets and didn’t feel anything, but then I came across my new Quirky Critters stamp set, and I just had to!
I literally squealed in delight when I saw this adorable stamp set in the catalog. It has a narwhal (the unicorn of the sea) AND a sloth! Yep, top of my list.
For the background on my baby girl card, I used the new Embossing Paste mixed with Powder Pink ink refill. I love the masks that I have, but I wanted something that said baby, so I made my own mask using a Window Sheet and the strip of hearts in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and spread the Embossing Paste through the mask onto the Soft Sky card base. Also in the background are strips of Powder Pink cardstock and Silver Glimmer Paper, some Silver Mini Sequin Trim, and a Powder Pink flower cut using the Support Ribbon Framelits.
After I stamped and cut my narwhal, I also added some flowers using the Beautiful Bouquet bundle. Finally, I topped the card off with Metallic Sequins. LOVE these!
On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Moon Baby and some more flowers from Beautiful Bouquet. I love when I can use a non-baby set for a baby card!
I loved making the card so much that I had to make a boy card to go with it. This time I used Lemon-Lime Twist and Pool Party. And instead of my handmade mask, I used one of the masks from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My final change was to use the Iridescent Sequins instead of the Metallics. Soooo pretty!
Which one do you like better? I think I’m all for the boy card.
Thanks for stopping by, and please go VOTE for #41 in the gallery! I’d love to participate in the top 10 winners blog hop again!
