Mountain Air Birthday Card

Have you see the Reversible stamps in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog?  One side of the stamp gives a solid, background image and when you turn the stamp over, you can stamp the detail image over the top of the background.  See video below.

This card features the Mountain Air stamp set and is one of the cards we’ll be creating at my August “Summer Sizzler” Card Class on Aug. 9th & 11th.   I kept this card pretty clean & simple, without embellishments, which seems to appeal to the masculine crowd!

Cardstock – Seaside Spray, Misty Moonlight, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White
Ink – Shaded Spruce, Momento Black
Accessories – Tasteful Labels Dies, Stampin’ Seal Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Playful Pets – It’s a Cutie After All!

Have you ever seen a stamp set or patterned paper for the first time and thought, “I don’t care for that at all”?  Well that’s what I thought when I first saw the Playful Pets Suite.

But then… I started seeing some cards/projects posted online and I changed my mind.  It happens to the best of us!!  🙂   I’ve been cutting out the images of the dogs & cats from the patterned paper using the sharp precision tipped, Paper Snips!


Stamp Set – Rooted in Nature
Cardstock – Basic Black, Real Reed, Whisper White, Gold Foil, Playful Pets Patterned Paper
Accessories – Versamark, White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Tasteful Labels Dies, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Seal Adhesive

Tasteful Touches

Here is a card that I had my team create at our last get together.  The leaves line up perfectly because they are stamped on the patterned paper first and then the stitched rectangle is cut out from the middle.  Step by step directions are found below.


Stamp Set – Tasteful Touches
Cardstock – Just Jade, Whisper White, In Good Taste Designer Series Paper
Ink – Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Early Espresso
Accessories – Stitched Rectangle Dies, Elegant Faceted Gems, Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Seal Adhesive

Stamping Tips:

  • Stamp greenery in Just Jade ink on 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of patterned paper
  • Using the Stitched Rectangle Die, cut the rectangle out of the center of the patterned paper
  • Adhere the 5-1/4″ x 4″ patterned paper (the center will be missing) to the Just Jade card base
  • Stamp the sentiment on the Stitched Rectangle piece that was cut out using the die
  • Adhere the Stitched Rectangle to a Just Jade mat
  • Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, adhere the Just Jade matted piece to the card front
  • Stamp the flower on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock; cut out the flower using the Paper Snips
  • Adhere flower to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals
