Heartfelt Trio

Good evening! I hope you’re doing well. I had a weird weekend. I somehow injured my foot in my sleep, as you do. I was seriously hobbled all weekend (it’s better but not completely). Plus I had two sick kids and t-ball practice, and my dog killed a baby bunny in the back yard, so… meh. Weird weekend. I guess you can say I was glad to see Monday. At co-op today I got two new students in my knitting class — an extra kid, plus a mom who wants to learn to knit. We had a lot of fun in class and were shocked when the bell rang to end class. Time flies.

Stampin' Up! Heartfelt Blooms with washi tape - Sale-A-Bration freebie stamp set with $50 purchase through March 31 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For today’s post, I made a trio of cards using the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, some ribbon, and some washi tape. Heartfelt Blooms is one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets. You can only get these stamps for FREE with a $50 purchase — you can’t buy them. This flower stamp is the first of a new type of stamp patented by Stampin’ Up! The details are amazing.

The main colors I used were Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green (gasp!), and Rich Razzleberry. I used the same layout and design for each card and simply changed up the ribbon and the washi tape.

For the Flirty Flamingo card, I used the Lemon-Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon and Basics Pack 1 washi tape.

For the Garden Green card, I used Crumb Cake 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon. This ribbon is so lovely and feels so nice.

The Rich Razzleberry card is my favorite. I think I have exactly the right amount of ink on my Rich Razzleberry ink pad to make the flowers burst off the card. I used Basics Pack 1 washi tape on this one, plus the FREE Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon pack (free with $50 purchase). The ribbon comes in three different widths and three different colors – Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, and Bermuda Bay. It’s delicious.

Gingerbread Houses scrapbook page

Good morning! Today’s project is a 2-page scrapbook layout (click picture to embiggen). I was looking through my Christmas Around the World paper over the weekend, and when I saw this sheet with all the Christmas goodies, I was inspired to finally scrapbook some photos from last year when we made gingerbread houses.

Stampin' Up! 2-page 12x12 Christmas layout for gingerbread houses - Christmas Around the World paper, Sweet Home stamps, Home Sweet Home thinlits, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The gingerbread house and gum drops are from the Sweet Home stamp set and the Home Sweet Home thinlits. The heart and star are from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits. The font that I used for the title is, sadly, retired. I stamped it on Whisper White, then punched out each letter with the Pretty Label punch, then snipped off the decorative sides. Under the bottom edge of the title, you can see a strip of Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape. It is sooooo pretty in person.

The gingerbread cookies are from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, and the journaling card is from the Color Theory Card Pack. The ribbon on both pages is Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon.

Oh, What Fun!

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card with Merry Music paper, Winter Wonder embossing folder, Trim Your Stocking thinlits, Oh What Fun stamp set - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hello! I hope all is well with y’all today.

I decided to join in with Freshly Made Sketches today — I haven’t played along with them recently and just loved this week’s sketch, so this was a great time to jump back in.

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card with Merry Music paper, Winter Wonder embossing folder, Trim Your Stocking thinlits, Oh What Fun stamp set - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card base is Garden Green (gasp! I know!). I cut a Real Red panel, then embossed the gorgeous Winter Wonder snowflake on the bottom two-thirds. I sponged Real Red ink over the snowflake, just for a little extra depth. Then I sponged all the way around the edge of the Real Red cardstock. The paper (which actually has the words “Oh! what fun” on it) is from the Merry Music Specialty designer series paper. I cannot get enough of this paper!

I thought the “oh, what fun” sentiment from the Oh, What Fun stamp set was pretty perfect for this card. I heat embossed it in silver, then added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper behind it. The snowflake is from the Trim Your Stocking thinlits, and I finished off the card with a Clear Faceted Gem. I love these things!

I stamped the inside with a stamp from Hang Your Stocking and also added a strip of the Merry Music paper.

Hi! I made this card in my live Facebook card yesterday. I hadn’t done much with the Quilted Christmas suite yet and really had fun playing. The above card is the one I made in the video, fully inking up the embossing folder. The card below is the card I showed at the beginning with the embossing folder inked up randomly.
