Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder

Hi everyone,

I love the subtle colours and textures on this card using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder (#158368). This folder also includes the Dies and can be used together or separately.




I dry embossed a piece of Basic White card (#159228), without the dies, for the card front. Next I positioned the die to cut the flowers in the folder then the card is embossed and the flowers are cut at the same time and I used these flowers. I lightly daubered the flowers with Real Red ink (#147084) and Daffodil Delight ink (#147094) for the centres. I used the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) on the areas I coloured.

I cut a piece of Basic White card using an Ornate Layers Dies (#152726). Best Wishes from the Art Gallery stamp set (#158201) was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink, then I attached this card to the card front. The leaves were cut with the dies from the Bloom dies using Soft Sea Foam card (#147012) which was backed with Adhesive Sheet (#152334).

The flowers were all attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The card was finished by adding the Elegant Faceted Gems (#152464) to the flower centres and the card.

Poinsettia Petals

Hi again friends,

I have used the traditional red & green for this Christmas card using the beautiful poinsettia.




I used the Stitched Greenery Die (#155451) for the “stitching” on the Basic White card front (#159228). I attached the Real Red card (#106578) to the back of the cardfront. I wrapped the Metallic Mesh Ribbon (#153550) around the card front, then attached this to the Basic White base card.

The poinsettias from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#158251) were stamped with Real Red ink (#147084) and cut with the Poinsettia Dies (#153522). The leaves and flower centre were cut and embossed also with these dies using Garden Green card (#108605) and Real Red card. The flower was assembled with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). I taped the leaves to the flowers and also used Dimensionals to attach the whole flower to the card.

The sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set was stamped with Real Red ink and a die from the Potted Succulents (#154330) was used to cut the sentiment. This was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Some sparkle was added to the poinsettia using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897).

Stamping on Gold Metallic Specialty Paper

Hi my crafty friends,

I love to experiment and here on this card I heat embossed on the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper, then coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Last week I heat embossed on cards using Black & White Stampin’ Emboss powders, so today I have used the Gold.




The floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set (#155070) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283) onto the Gold from the Gold & Rose Gold 6”x6” Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844). I added the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555) and set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). I then coloured the flowers with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends (#154887), Polished Pink Stampin’ Blends (#155520) and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends (#154884). I used Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends (#154885) for the leaves.

I matted this gold paper with Gorgeous Grape card (#147011). The Highland Heather card front (#147010) was dry embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder (#155428), then attached to the Basic White base card (#159228).

“Congratulations” is also from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set and stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink (#147099). The sentiment and the Gorgeous Grape Label under the sentiment were cut with the Potted Succulents dies (#154330). The sentiment was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon (#154572) was used to make the bow and attached to the card with a Mini Glue Dot (#103683).

The Elegant Faceted Gems (#152464) were coloured with the dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends (#154887) before attaching to the card.

Angels Of Peace stamp set

Hello friends,

The image from the Angels Of Peace stamp set (#156365) was stamped with VersaMark (#102283), sprinkled with the white embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I cut this with a Hippo & Friends Die (#153585). Merry Christmas from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#158251) was heat embossed with  Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555). I used a Stitched Rectangle die (#151820) to cut the sentiment.

The Basic White card front (#159228) was dry embossed with the Star-Crossed Embossing Folder (#156567). I daubered the edges with Daffodil Delight ink (#147094) and Soft Suede ink (#147115) to try to achieve a “gold” look. The card front was attached to the Basic White base card.

The sentiment & Angel were attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).  The lovely Gold Holly Leaves (#156311) were attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) and Mini Glue Dots (#103683). The Genial Gems (#155500) were added to add that extra glitter & gold to the card.

Angels Of Peace

Hello everyone,

I love this fancy fold card which I have made for a special Christmas card using the Angels Of Peace stamp set (#156365).






The Basic White base card (#159228) measures 21cm x 10.5cm and scored at 6cm for the flap on the left side of the card. The Real Red card (#106578) measures 14cm x 9.5cm and was attached to the base card. The next layer of Basic White card measures 23cm x 8.5cm and scored at 13cms, then placed over the red card with the flap on the right side of the card.

The gold card from the Gold & Rose Gold 6”x6” Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844) measures 9.5cm x8cm. I stamped the angel with VersaMark (#102283) and sprinkled it with the Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155554), then set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). The gold was attached to the flap on the right side of the card. I then attached the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Series Paper (#155761) to the flap on the left side of the card.

The dies to cut this and the Real Red card under the sentiment are from the Hippo & Friends Dies (#153585). I used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) under the left side of the sentiment which allows you to tuck the flap under .

A Genial Gem (#155500) was attached under the sentiment.

Stitched Greenery Die

Hello friends,

I am loving this Stitched Greenery Die (#155451) which is great for backgrounds. I am sure it will be used on many of my cards in the future. Not sure why it took so long to get it.




I used this die on the Pearlescent Specialty Paper (#154291) and matted it with the Rich Razzleberry card (#119981). The base card is Shimmery White card (#121717). 

I stamped the floral images from the Art Gallery stamp set (#158201) using Rich Razzleberry ink (#147091) on Shimmer White card. I used the stamping off method to stamp the background of the flowers for a lighter image and the darker areas are stamped normally. These were cut with the co-ordinating Floral Gallery dies (#154316). I taped the flowers on the right side of the card and used Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach the other flowers.

The detailed “circle” was cut with a die from the Encircled In Beauty Dies (#155546) using Rich Razzleberry card. The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set (#151490) and also stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink. I used a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886) to cut this. The Rich Razzleberry cut-out was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Elegant Faceted Gems (#152464) were added to the card.

Picture This Dies

Hello again my crafty friends,

Stampin’ Up! have such a great range of dies, many of them co-ordinate with stamps and others can be used alone with great results.




I cut the Mossy Meadow card (#133683) with one of the Picture This Dies (#155559). This was attached to the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper (#155841), then this was attached to the Basic White base card (#159228).

I cut the tree from Beautiful Trees Dies (#155840) using the darkest of the Brushed Metallic 12”x12” cardstock (#153524) which was backed with Adhesive Sheet (#152334). This makes it easy to attach more detailed pieces to the card.

The birds, also from the Beautiful trees dies were cut from Bumble Bee card (#153082) and attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

“Happy Birthday” is from the Blossoms In Blooms stamp set (#152684) and I stamped this with VersaMark (#102283). I heat embossed this with Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555) and set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). The die to cut this is also from the Beautiful Trees dies. I attached the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). 

I finished the card by adding glimmer using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897) on the birds.

Eden’s Garden Bundle

Hi everyone,

I am using the leaves here on this card that I had left from yesterdays card.





The leaves were cut with the Eden Dies (#157831) using the Ever Eden 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159996). The background is also from the same DSP. I stamped the leaves from the Eden’s Garden stamp set (#157823) onto this DSP with VersaMark (#102283) and heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). The sentiment from the same stamp set was also silver embossed onto Basic White card (#159228). The sentiment and Evening Evergreen card (#155575) were cut with the Hippo & Friends Dies (#153585). 

The die cut leaves were attached to the DSP card front with Mini Glue Dots (#103683). I threaded the Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon (#155780) through the sentiment and attached the sentiment to the Evening Evergreen label with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). The ribbon was wrapped around the card, and the card front was attached to the Evening Evergreen base card.

Eden Dies

Hello friends,

Here is another card using some of the early release Eden’s Garden collection (#160849).





Using the larger die from the Eden Dies (#157831) I cut the Ever Eden 12”x12” Specialty Designer Series Paper (#159996). I put the leaf cut out aside for another card and used the outside of the DSP and attached it to a piece of Basic White card (#159228). I then adhered the Adhesive Sheet (#152334) to the back of the Gold paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844), then cut with the same die, this time using the leaf cutout. I attached this onto the white card matching it up with the DSP cut out.

“Happy” & “Birthday” are from the Biggest Wishes stamp set (#155052). “Happy” is stamped with Evening Evergreen ink (#155576) and “Birthday” is stamped with Soft Succulent ink (#155778). The Genial Gems (#155500) were added to the card. The base card is Evening Evergreen (#155575).

An easy and pretty card.

Eden’s Garden

Hi my crafty friends,

The Eden’s Garden Collection (#160849) is an early release product which will be available from 2nd November and some of the products will be then available in the mini catalogue in January. An advantage of being a demonstrator is the you can access these products in advance, so if you would like that opportunity just contact me.

I have used a couple of the products on this card and combined them with some of my other favourite products.



The leaves in the background are from the Eden’s Garden stamp set (#157823) and stamped with Mint Macaron ink (#147106). The “verse” from the Very Versailles stamp set (#149275) was stamped with Just Jade ink (#153115). The Basic White card front (#159228) was the dry embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505). This was matted with Just Jade card (#153084), then I wrapped the Gold Shimmer Ribbon (#152156) around the card. This was attached to the Basic White base card.

The butterfly was cut with a die from the Brilliant Wings dies (#155523) using the gold from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844). This was attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

The sentiment is also from the Eden’s Garden stamp set and stamped with VersaMark (#102283) and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555), then set with the Heat Tool (#129056). I used a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies (#152886) to cut the sentiment. The Just Jade card under the sentiment was cut with a Warm Wraps Die (#153521) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) were used to attach this to the card.

The gold leaves were cut using a die from the Eden Dies (#157831) from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. I used Mini Glue Dots (#103683) to attach the leaves. The beautiful gems are the Garden Gems (#159277) which are part of the Eden’s Garden collection.

You will see more of these products used here over the next few weeks.

Sending Hugs

Hello again,

I experimented today with heat embossing onto the Rose Gold Paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper (#156844) and it worked beautifully.




Using VersaMark (#102283) I stamped the image from the Sending Hugs stamp set (#155022) onto the Rose Gold Paper. I used Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#155555) and heat set it with the Heat Tool (#129056). The card front was attached to the Basic White base card (#159228).

I attached a piece of Gold Foil sheet (#132622) to the Foam Adhesive Sheets (#152815) and cut this with the HUGS die from the Layering Hugs Dies (#155860). These letters were then attached over the embossed hug letters.

“On your special day” from Sending Hugs stamp set was gold embossed onto Basic White card and cut with a die from the Layering Hugs Dies. This was attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The trio of embellishments in the corners are from the Wonderful gems (#153536).

Gorgeous Leaves

Hello friends,

I don't very often make “vintage style” cards so tried it on this card. I thought the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505) would be ideal for the background.








After dry embossing the Very Vanilla card front (#106550), I wiped the Crumb Cake ink pad (#147116) lightly over the embossed card, highlighting the raised embossed areas. Then using a Blending Brush (#153611) and Soft Suede ink (#147115), I added extra colour around the edges of the card front. I also tore some areas for a more vintage look. I matted the card front with So Saffron card (#108611).

The leaves are from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set (#153365). I inked one leaf with So Saffron ink (#147109), then added Soft Suede ink (#147115) around the edges using a Sponge Dauber (#133773) before stamping. The other 2 stamped leaves were inked with Old Olive ink (#147090) and I added the Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083) to the tips with a dauber, then stamped.

I wrapped the Gold Fine Art Ribbon (#154561) around the card front before adding the leaves to the card.

I adhered the Adhesive Sheet (#152334) to the back of the Soft Suede card (#119982), Old Olive card (#106576) and So Saffron card before cutting these and the stamped leaves with the Intricate Leaves Dies  (#153566). 

The sentiment is from the retired Many Mates stamp set and stamped with Soft Suede ink, then cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886). The sentiment and the stamped leaves were all attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

The Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (#156506) were added to the card. The card base is Soft Suede. I added sparkle to all the leaves using the Clear Wink Of Stella Brush (#141897).

Hi my friends,

Here are 2 cards the “same but different” using the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper (#156281). How cute are these animals.






The base card and card front are Basic White card (#159228). I dry embossed the card front with one of the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders (#155433), then attached the DSP to the card. The edges of the card front were daubered with Cherry Cobbler ink (#147083) and attached to the card base.

I dots were dry embossed on the rectangular white card with one of the Checks & Dots Embossing Folder (#155432), then this was matted with the Cherry Cobbler card (#121681).

The dog and stockings were fussy cut from the Sweet Stockings DSP and attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430). “Season’s Greetings” is from the Merriest Moments stamp set (#156353) and stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. A die from the Ornate Frames Dies (#150664) was used to cut the sentiment. Stampin’ Dimensionals were also used to attach this to the card.

A great card for any animal lover.

Happy Holly-Days stamp set

Hi friends,

Today I have used 2 Christmas stamp sets but again have made a non Christmas card.

I often stamp an image which I don’t end up using so have a box of bits and pieces which come in very handy when I have little time to stamp but need a card. It’s a bit like a kit with all the pieces ready to put together. The bird, the stamped leaves and scalloped cork paper are all from that box so didn't take long to put together.




The Soft Succulent card front is from the 2021-2023 In Color Designer Series Paper (#155641) and attached to the Basic White base card (#159228). The leaves from the Merriest Moments stamp set (#156353) were stamped with Soft Succulent ink (#155778) and Evening Evergreen ink (#155576). This was attached to the card front.

The Cork Specialty Paper (#156393) was cut with the scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours Dies (#155560). The bird from Happy Holly-Days stamp set (#156342) was stamped with Real Red ink (#147084) and fussy cut. This was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

“Congratulations” from Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595) was stamped with Evening Evergreen ink and cut with an Ornate Frames Die (#150664) and also attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Soft Succulent embellishments are from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (#155571).

Merriest Moments stamp set

Hello stamping friends,

I wanted to make this card to show the versatility of some stamp sets. The leaves have been stamped from the Merriest Moments stamp set (#156353) which is a Christmas set but I have made a non Christmas card. Of course if you used the poinsettias in the set you could make it a Christmas card.



I stamped the finer leaves with Evening Evergreen ink (#155576) and the other leaves with Soft Succulent ink (#155778). After stamping, I dry embossed the Basic White card (#159228) with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (#156406). This card was matted with the Rich Razzleberry card (#119981), then attached to the Basic White base card.

The flowers were cut with the Summer Shadows Dies (#156618). The base of the flower is Fresh Freesia card (#155614) and the detailed outline is Rich Razzleberry card. I had adhered Adhesive Sheet (#152334) to the back of the Rich Razzleberry card before cutting with the dies, making it easy to attach to the base flower. The Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots (#156506) were attached to the centre of the flowers.

The Gold Trim from the Simply Elegant Trim (#155766) was attached to the card and the flowers were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

“Thank You” is from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set (#154984) and stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink (#147091). This was punched with a retired punch and attached with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108).

Colour & Contour Bundle

Hello again,

I love how you can mix & match various products and stamps which I have done with this card.




The yellow flowers were stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#147087). The outline was stamped, then I “stamped off”, also using Crushed Curry ink, to stamp the solid flowers. These flowers are from the Color & Contour stamp set (#154994) and were cut with the co-ordinating Scalloped Contours Dies (#155560).

The leaves are all from the Forever Fern stamp set (#152559) and cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies (#152714). These leaves were stamped with Just Jade ink (#153115), Old Olive ink (#147090) and Soft Suede ink (#147116).

The base card is Basic White (#159228) and the card front is Cork 12”x12” Specialty Paper (#156393). I attached a Square Vellum Doilie (#152484) to the card front. The scalloped white card was cut with a Scalloped Contours Die. The leaves and flowers were attached to the card with tape & Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). I added the glitter to all the stamped images with the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (#151595), stamped with Crushed Curry ink and cut with a Tasteful Labels Die (#152886). The embellishments are from the Matt Decorative Dots (#156289) and attached to the sentiment.

Beautiful Trees Dies

Hi my lovely friends,

I have used the Beautiful Trees dies (#155840) for the tree on todays card. I know that the branches probably should be behind the cut-out leaves but I liked to see more of the branches as the leaves covered most of the branches. On the 2nd photo, I added some extra pieces of the detailed cut-out leaves and put on top of the branches.








I cut the solid part of the leaves from Garden Green card (#108605) and the detailed cut-out of the leaves from the Beauty Of The Earth Designer Series Paper (#155841). For the 2nd card I cut another piece of the detailed leaves and cut small pieces from this and randomly added on top of the branches so you can still see some of the branches. The trunk and branches were cut from Soft Suede card (#119982). These were assembled with the Fine Tip- Glue Pen (#138309).

I cut the Very Vanilla rectangle with a die from Natures Thoughts (#153586), then dry embossed with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder (#156406). This was attached to a piece of the Beauty Of The Earth DSP which was attached to the Very Vanilla base card.

“Thank You” from the Beauty Of Friendship stamp set (#154983) was stamped with Merry Merlot ink (#147112) and cut with a die from the Beautiful Trees Dies and attached to the card with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108). The birds were also cut from the same die set from Merry Merlot card (#147005) and also attached with Mini Dimensionals. I added the Clear Wink Of Stella (#141897) to the birds. The embellishment is from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (#150457). 

Today (30th September) is the last day to get any of the free products from Sale-a-bration, so contact me if you want anything or go to lesleyjendra.stampinup.net

Whimsical Trees Bundle

Hello friends,

Each year I do a whole day of classes for Christmas cards where I have a great variety of cards for everyone to make. I try to keep the cards fairly simple which allows the ladies to make as many as possible. This was one of the cards, which was very popular.




The base card & card front are Basic White (#159228). I dry embossed the card front with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505), then attached the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper (#156329). The edges of the card front were daubered with Mint Macaron ink (#147106).

The Christmas tree was cut from Mint Macaron card (#138344) and the tree decoration was cut from Silver Foil Specialty card (#156457) which was backed with Adhesive Sheet (#152334). These were both cut using the Christmas Trees Dies (#156339). The tree was attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

Merry Christmas is from the Peaceful Deer stamp set (#156891) and stamped with Mint Macaron Ink then cut with a Stitched Rectangles Die (#151820). I used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (#144108) to attach this to the card.
