Here is another one of the card sets that my stampers made with me at my recent Stamp-a-Stack.
Each participant makes 3 cards of each of my sets that I have out at this event. But because the Glitter Enamel Dots come in four colors, I gave each of them supplies for 3 of the color sets. In other words, not everyone had the same set of colors. And I had on display for them these four variations.
I then shared how to make this simple yet eye-catching card featuring Stampin’ Up!’s #1 Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Heartfelt Blooms on my most recent Wednesday Facebook Live broadcast. This stamp set is one of several products you can pick for free during Sale-a-Bration when you purchase $50 worth of Stampin’ Up! product by the end of March. The 3-D looking image in this set is part of a new line of images Stampin’ Up! is calling “Distinktive.”
This card also features another SAB item – the ribbon, but if you are new to stamping and don’t want to place a $100 order to earn BOTH free SAB items, you can always substitute and use another ribbon to recreate this card. We have several to choose from. And you can see all these products (including the SAB choices) in my online store.
I also shared in this video some simple basics for using the Big Shot embossing/die-cutting tool.
I recorded this Facebook Live how-to video this past Wednesday and then uploaded it to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements below, and then let me know if you have any questions. If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live every Wednesday afternoon at 2 PM Central Time.
Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate this card.
- Smoky Slate cardstock:
- 11” x 4-1/4” scored at 5-1/2” and folded in half
- Whisper White cardstock:
- 4-1/4” x 3-3/8” for the outside
- 4-3/4” x 3-1/2” for the inside
- Colored cardstock that coordinates with Glitter Enamel Dot color:
- 4-1/4” x 3-5/8”
- Basic Gray ¼” Shimmer ribbon (FREE along with 2 other rolls of ribbon with $50+ order):
- About 4” for most of the card variations, but a longer piece if you plan to duplicate the last two cards below
Products: See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Here are 4 more versions of this card that I finished up during and after recording the video.
I LOVE the depth of embossing that you can get with these Dynamic Embossing Folders.
On this card, I added Wink of Stella on the main flower.
And on this one I first colored the main flower with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers. And then I added a bit of Wink of Stella on top.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Looking for Club Members
I am putting together another Online Paper Crafters Club and am looking for a few more members to join in. The commitment is to place an order each month for 6 months in row. In one of those months you would get the Stampin’ Rewards (the free goodies) based on the collective orders from those in the club. The other perks would be free catalogs shipped to you, a set of 6 free hand-stamped cards at the end of the 6-month commitment, and exclusive project ideas emailed to you each month. I’m hoping to start this club at the beginning of April. You do not need to live near me. Anyone in the US can join. Let me know if you are interested!
