Just Because

I Enjoy Every Chapter of Our Friendship

The book & tea lover in me immediately added the Every Chapter Cling Stamp to my Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog must have shopping list. There are so many possibilities for coloring in this great stamp. I chose to color the image for this card with Watercolor Pencils.

I wanted my card to have lots of bright color so I picked this pretty heart pattern from the Pattern Party DSP that is available as a host reward in the Annual Catalog. I love how it looks on the Granny Apple Green card base.

I wanted to add some dimension to the book images when adding them to my card so I snipped them apart after I colored them.

To add the book pieces to my card, I put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the end of the images with the pages, and a Mini Glue Dot on the other end. This allowed them to be a bit popped up on my card front as if they were actually stacked at an angle. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the cup and glasses to top of the stack. I brushed the glasses with a Wink of Stella to give them a shimmery look.

I’d love to be your Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator. All the Stampin’ Up! supplies used to make my card are available in my online store. Simply click any of the product photos below!

Sweet Strawberry Bundle

The Sweet Strawberry Bundle is one of my favorite Stamp & Punch bundles. The stamp set has great all-occasion sentiments, and two-step images that can be separately or together. The Strawberry Builder Punch makes stamping and cutting out the berries, flowers and leaves quickly.

Before we get to making the card I wanted to share with you a tip for using a punches that cut multiple stamped images at the same time, like the Strawberry Builder punch. To easy punch out the images together I made a template. I took a piece of scrap card stock to punch out the images. When I’m ready to stamp the images I placed them in the temple then placed the glass block non the stamps. I inked up the stamps with Stampin’ Spots. Then I can easily punch out the images at the same time.

Now on to a few tips for creating my card. Some of the images in the set are two-step stamps, which makes adding shading to the images very easy, or they can be used seperately. For my card I stamped the outline of the strawberries and leaves and then used the solid image stamps to add shading to them before punching them out. On the cardbase I stamped the outline of the strawberries, then randomly stamped in a few of the strawberries with the shaded image.

I stamped the sentiment on the Basic White card stock and adhered it to the base off center to the right, then added the Strawberries on the Basic White card stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch was the addition of the Genial Gems. There you have it, a cute card that is quick and easy to create.
