New Products: A Beautiful Walk through Eden’s Garden

Stampin’ Up! is introducing a brand new collection of products as a Sneak Peek to its upcoming catalog. These products are part of a promotion that runs from November 2, 2021 until January 3, 2022. While the bundle will be in Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming catalog, here’s the FUN PART: some of these products will only be available during this promotion, so now is the time to snatch them up!

Why the name “Eden’s Garden?” Here’s how Stampin’ Up! introduces Eden’s Garden: “The tale of the Garden of Eden transcends the boundaries of a single belief system. Numerous accounts and adaptations of Eden’s events have appeared in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, legends and lore, ancient mythology, and more! No matter how the story is shared, the essence of Eden remains the same: it’s a place of paradise. Filled with fruitful and flourishing foliage, stillness and serenity, and an air of mystery, Eden is an ethereal utopia!”

Here are the first couple of projects l created with just the stamp set and the beautiful Designer Series Papers:

This promotion runs from November 1, 2021 until January 3, 2022. While the bundle will be in Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming catalog, the other products are exclusive to this promotion and will only be available until January 3, 2021 (or while supplies last).

Bookbinder Cards from Stampin’ Up!

I had fun trying a new fun fold (to me!) that I saw on a post from Rachel Tessman at Stamp Your Heart Out. They are a fun twist on an easy card, but do add a bit of flare! I have included two cards here for you:

The two cards are prepared using the same measurements:

  • Basic White Cardstock: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored parallel to short side at 4-1/4” and at 5”
  • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting sentiment piece
  • Gold Glimmer Paper or Champagne Foil paper (both retired) But you can use any specialty paper!
  • Designer series paper (Blackberry Beauty or Whimsy & Wonder): 4” x 5-1/2” cut parallel to long side in on the left side at ½”

The key to this design is to adhere the small scored section on the front flap of the card TO the card base. You then create a ‘bound’ effect. The DSP panels were simply adhered to the front, and then I added two layers of a sentiment panel from the Stitched So Sweetly dies using a couple of retired glimmer/foil papers. You can use whatever you’d like! Here is a view from the top:

I hope you enjoyed my versions of the Bookbinder Card. Give one a try — they are quite easy and quite add Click below at the bottom of this post to start shopping with the products I used to make this project.

Words of Cheer, Take Three!

This is my third post using the Words of Cheer stamp set and the Stampin’ Blends. In my set of three cards, each is treated a little differently as far as colors and layout. It was so fun to get my Stampin’ Blends out and just enjoy the act of coloring and shading with our beautiful stamps. Here’s my third card:

I used a base of Basic White cardstock, and then cut a panel from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper at 5 1/4″ x 4 ” and adhered it to the front. I cut a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock at 4 1/4″ by 2 3/4″ and then ran it through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered that to the top part of the front panel. I used a 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip from the Be Dazzling Specialty DSP and adhered it to the front at the meeting of the two panels.

I then stamped a flower bouquet from the Words of Cheer stamp set on a scrap of Basic White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and used the Stampin’ Blends listed below to color in my bouquet. I then ran it through my Cut N’ Emboss machine using the Bark 3D embossing folder. The little bit of texture adds so much!

I stamped a sentiment from the Words of Cheer stamp set on a Basic White scrap of cardstock using the Evening Evergreen stamp pad. I snipped the ends of diagonally, and popped it onto the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Words of Cheer, Take Two!

This is my second post using the Words of Cheer stamp set and the Stampin’ Blends. In my set of three cards, each is treated a little differently as far as colors and layout. It was so fun to get my Stampin’ Blends out and just enjoy the act of coloring and shading with our beautiful stamps. Here’s my second card:

I used a base of Basic White cardstock, and then cut a panel from the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper at 5 1/4″ x 4 ” and adhered it to the front.. I used another 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip from the Tidings of Christmas DSP and adhered it to the front as well.

I then stamped a flower bouquet from the Words of Cheer stamp set on a scrap of Basic White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and used the Stampin’ Blends listed below to color in my bouquet. I then fussy cut it and ran it through my Cut N Emboss machine using the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder. The little bit of texture adds so much!

I cut out a Happy die in Flirty Flamingo and a piney background in Evening Evergreen card stock. I used the Holiday Rhinestones to create a little bling accent at the center of each flower. So easy and fun! Lastly, I stamped the HOLIDAY stamp directly onto the front of the card with Evening Evergreen ink.

Words of Cheer Set of Three!

The Stampin’ Pals group I belong to got some great blending tips from fellow Pal Stesha Bloodhart on our monthly Pals Facebook Live. So I decided to do some practicing on a new stamp set called Words of Cheer. In my set of three cards, each is treated a little differently as far as colors and layout. It was so fun to get my Stampin’ Blends out and just enjoy the act of coloring and shading with our beautiful stamps. Here’s my first card:

I used a base of Basic White cardstock, and then cut a panel from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper at 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ to cover the front panel. I used another strip from the same DSP cut at 2″ X 5 1/2″ and adhered it to the front as well. I then stamped a flower bouquet from the Words of Cheer stamp set, and used the Stampin’ Blends listed below to color in my bouquet. I love the Stampin’ Blends for their endless possibilities. So fun to use!

I used the Red Rhinestone Jewels to create a little bling accent, and I popped the white panel onto the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. So easy and fun! I hope you enjoyed my first version of the Words of Cheer Stamp Set. Click below at the bottom of this post to start shopping with the products I used.

Bundle Focus: Stampin’ Up!’s Season’s Blessings

Here’s a dilemma. You want to make holiday cards but you don’t want to invest in a stamp set that’s good for just one time of year. What’s a crafter to do?

Let me introduce you to the Season’s Blessings Bundle. Stamp a basket full of poinsettias, add the “Season’s Blessings” sentiment, and you have festive holiday cards. But the fun doesn’t end there! Fill the basket with leaves stamped in reds, yellow, and oranges for autumn cards. Stamp colorful flowers and “May your day be filled with good things” for birthday cards. You can use the stamps in this bundle for almost any occasion.

Don’t forget the dies! They coordinate with the stamp images for quick cutting. This is a bundle you’ll use all year long!

Check out this video to learn more about this fun bundle!

Creating beautiful holiday cards is simple when you use the stamp set and coordinating dies in the Season’s Blessings Bundle. And when you buy the bundle, you’ll save 10% over buying the stamp and dies separately! HERE to start shopping.

Scraps Have Never Looked So Beautiful!

No doubt you’ve seen the ‘scrappy strip’ technique that’s been all the rage in the paper crafting world. Well, I just had to give it a try, because I love the beautiful patterns in the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Papers.

Here’s my card:

I got my inspiration from a fun video by Bruno and Kylie Bertucci: https://www.kyliebertucci.com/2020/03/brunos-scrappy-strip-technique-video.html AND Helen Read, who created a beautiful design of her own: http://allthingsstampy.blogspot.com/2021/09/scrappy-strip-technique-and-mosaic.html

It’s a simple 4-step technique.

  • 1. Cut a panel to fit your card (I make my 1/4″ smaller than my card front, so that’s 5 1/4″ by 4″.
  • 2. Prepare four pieces of cardstock or Designer Series Paper – I cut four six inch square pieces, or a quarter sheet of regular card stock.
  • 3. Cut these four panels into irregular strips, from 1/4″ to 1″ on one side, and at a slant or aigonal — you choose your look!
  • 4. Assemble these strips onto your panel and trim off the excess.
  • 5. Add your panel of scrappy strips to your card base, and you’re done!

I used a card base of Blackberry Bliss card stock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4.” The sentiment panel is from the Scalloped Contours Dies, and the Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Sweet as a Peach Stamp Set.

It’s that simple! And that pretty! Think of all the cards you can create using our beautiful DSP! I hope you liked my project! All the products you need to create this yourself can be found at the end of this post.
