Pop of Paradise Card Candy # 3

And here's another piece of card candy (DIY embellishment) that I created with the Pop of Paradise stamp set.

This piece of card candy photographed a bit better than the previous one. I embossed this with White embossing powder to which I added Dazzling Diamond glitter. I love that sparkly look. I also used a chalk marker to outline the banner and add the details.

Pop of Paradise Card Candy # 2

Here's the second piece of card candy (DIY embellishments) that I created with the Pop of Paradise stamp set.  This little pineapple is a challenge for me. I don't really know what to do with it on a card. I thought it worked out okay with this piece though and maybe now that I have created the embellishment I will be able to design a card to use it on.

The largest scalloped oval is gold foil paper. It is so hard to photograph the shiny items on cards! I think it looks much better when you actually see it, than when you look at the photo.

The second oval layer is Delightful Dijon. The top oval is Crushed Curry. The pineapple is stamped in Crushed Curry and Garden Green and the banner is stamped in Daffodil Delight.

Pop of Paradise Card Candy- #1

Have you seen the sets of Card Candy made by various Stampin' Up! stamp sets that are posted on Pinterest? Well, I am going to create a set of Card Candy using the Pop of Paradise stamp set. This is the first one that I have created.

What do you do with Card Candy? You create cards! I'm not real sure of the history of Card Candy but I think it may have had something to do with either trading sets with other stampers, or just that Stampin' Up! demonstrators created sets to give away at their classes and workshops as little bonuses. That is what I have used them for, little bonuses for my customers...card starters.

Baby Buggy Something for Baby Card

Something for Baby stamp set is a go-to stamp set for creating baby cards. This baby buggy in the Stampin' Up! set is such a classic stamp. I decided to do this card in Mint Macaron, an In-Color that was added last year, and Sweet Sugarplum, the most popular In-Color that was added in the current catalog. I like the color combination and if I want it to look a little more masculine, all I have to do is switch out the Sweet Sugarplum on the buggy and use the Mint Macaron instead!

You've Got This! Stampin' Up! Encouragement card

Here's another card created with the You've Got This stamp set. I think this may be the second card I have created with this set. The flower is so big that it pretty much has to be used by itself. It does make very elegant cards though.

Flourishing Phrases Sympathy card

Here's a sympathy card that I made using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and coordinating thinlit dies. 

I must confess that I wasn't making it as an example of Stampin' Up!s great products. I was making it because, unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. So, not all of the products are Stampin' Up! The Blackberry Bliss cardstock is retired. The ribbon is some that I purchased at a local craft store. And the embossing powder is also from a local craft store. Oh yes, the parchment paper is from a stationery set that I have had for a long time. So basically, the framelits, stamp set and cardstock are the only Stampin' Up! items. But this card can easily be switched up so that all the products are Stampin' Up!, it would just be a little different.

The card design came from Lyssa Zwolanek.

One Big Meaning with Swirls

How much have you been using the Wink of Stella? Have you used several tubes? I am sure trying to use mine as much as possible because it adds that special touch and just brings almost every project up a notch. I used it on the swirly scribbles die cuts on this card.

swirly scribbles, One Big Meaning, Stampin' Up!, Stamp with Trude, thank you card

The card base is the new Sweet Sugarplum In-Color. I like is a lot. It has red undertones instead of the blue ones in the Wisteria Wonder.

The sentiment with the beautiful font is from the One Big Meaning stamp set. The dots are from the Timeless Textures set and the die cut flowers and leaves are from the Flower Fair framelits set.
