One thing to note with this set of dies is that there are two flowers that have duplicate dies, so it makes it easy to die cut multiple of these flowers! I love that Stampin’ Up! is doing this more often in their framelits sets!

First Frost stamp set and Frosted Bouquet framelits



What I love about this stamp set is that it could be used for holiday-fall related projects but also for any other seasons (spring-summer come in mind). The flowers on this stamp set have a watercolor look, which is so trendy these days! and these flowers have framelits to cut these out!! so no fuzzy cutting for you! LOL 


If you pay close attention to the framelits picture above, you will notice that there are two flower framelits that comes double! so you can cut two of the same flower at the same time, which I think it’s a time saver! Is that not cool??

This card was inspired in a card we made at Onstage earlier this year. Onstage is one of the Stampin’ Up! events that happens about twice a year where demonstrators get to see what is coming up, as well as play with some of the upcoming products.

Here you can see the card made at Onstage so you can see it is the same layout! You can see the blog post about this card HERE. There are measurements and step by step instructions!

Go for Greece Training Group Hop




Hello Friends! today I am participating in the Go for Greece Training Group blog hop. We will be sharing projects using current products from Stampin’ Up! so be sure to visit all participating demonstrators’ blogs as you will get lots of inspiration from all the projects!  


The card I made today is featuring the healing hugs stamp set! This is one of my favorite ones on the annual catalog. I love the images and the sentiments!  Though this time I decided to pair this stamp set with the Rooted in Nature for the sentiment. 


Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a quick and easy card, where I show you tips and tricks for using Stampin Up's healing hugs!

I used two of the newest colors from Stampin’ Up! Petal Pink and Mint Macaroon, I really like how this color combination turned out, don’t you agree? the sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso to really make it pop up!


And as you an see from the picture below I used wink of stella on the rose and to add a little something, I added some pearls to the sentiment!

RemARKably Creative Blog Hop: Colorful Seasons


Hello Friends!! Today I am participating in the RemARKably Creative Blog Hop, where we will be showcasing projects using the Blended Seasons Bundle, so make sure you visit all the participating blogs. I am sure you will get a lot of inspirations from all the talented designers participating in this hop!

Please note that the Blended Seasons Bundle is only available during August, and it is only while supply lasts! so make sure you get your own, as you will see that this set is very versatile! This set is perfect for different seasons like Spring and Fall, but also you can make cards for Wedding, Christmas, Thank you notes, Friendship, etc, so really, this set is a must have! no kidding, you will be using it a lot. See below the stamp set!! 

And as you can imagine this stamp set has coordinating dies!! Below you can see the Stitched Seasons thinlits set! Please look at the details of the label dies!! these make stitches on the cut out as well as on the negative area, so this makes this die set even more versatile.. 

 And as part of this promotion Stampin’ Up! has released a second assortment of the Watercolor pencils!! If you like the watercolor pencils we have on our annual catalog, you will want to get this second assortment to complete your collection. Keep in mind that this new assortment has colors from the color revamp and we truly don’t know if this new pack will be available later on.. so do not let it go!


Here is the list of colors being included in the second assortment of watercolor pencils: Balmy Blue, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Garden Green, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apply Green, Night of Navy. 

The card being featured today uses Cajun Craze cardstock, which I got to admit is not one of my favorite colors, however I really liked how this card turned out. 


 I did not designed this card, this was actually a card we made on our team meeting in August!! I love that we do four cards on every meeting and we focus on something when doing these projects. This month the focus was on the Blended Seasons Bundle, since this set is only available during this month, so this helps us to come up with cards for our classes or other events, in this case it helped me for this blog hop 🙂

Check out the blog post where I show you how to make a quick and easy card, this card features Stampin Up's Colorful Seasons Bundle!  You‘ll love how quick and easy this is to make!  www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #handmadecards #friendshipcards

I loved the idea of matting the card tone on tone. Did you notice the stitching on the labels?? These look so cute!! I think that the faux stitches are so trendy at this moment!! I just cannot have enough!


The coloring was made with the watercolor pencils, and then of course I added a layer of Wink of Stella, cause why wouldn’t you? seriously!! I love how this tool gives the extra shimmer on your project, making it pop up even more!


The sentiment was stamped with Stazon ink on vellum, as this ink dries up very quickly. To glue the vellum piece I used a glue dot, and then I covered with the bow, which was also glued with a glue dot. This simple trick ensures that you don’t see the adhesive on the vellum!
