Tips on how to come up with new card ideas…

Hello friends!! Today I want to share some tips on how to come up with new card ideas when you are stuck or not creative at all.. you are going to see how easy is to get your creative juices back pretty fast! 

When you feel like you cannot really come up with new card ideas or feel like your creative juices are not flowing, or maybe you just don’t have too much time to think of a new design for your card cause let’s admit it, we all want to craft but cannot afford to spend all day long in your craft bubble (I know this is crazy, but there are chores to be taken care or kids that need to be fed.. get the picture.. ha!) well this tip my friends is going to help you for those occasions.. 


So here it is my tip: Look at some cards for inspiration and then change something about it, it could be the colors, the elements, the layout, the size of the focal point or the placement of the focal point.. you can do this by looking at old cards you have made or by looking online like going to pinterest (just make sure you put a time limit, cause you don’t want to spend all your craft time on the pinterest rabbit hole – not that I have done that but I have been told.. lol)

And following this advice, the card that I am sharing today was inspired from one of the cards I made during last week FB live event!! you can see the cards HERE. I used as well the Falling for Leaves bundle.

In this case I loved the focal point of the last card I made during the facebook live event last Thursday, so I decided to recreate that one, however this time I made that piece smaller than the original card, but you can see I stamped the focal point the same way I did it on my inspiration card. Below some pictures from the “inspiration card”

Another thing to note is that I changed the die cuts I used on this card, the one from the FB live had the maple leave and this time I used the other leaves from the Falling for leaves bundle.

Three handmade card ideas using Falling for leaves bundle

Hello Friends! Today I want to share three handmade card ideas using the Falling for Leaves stamp set from Stampin’ Up! these are great now that we are on full swing of the fall season!

Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make Three cards featuring the Falling for Leaves stamp set!  You‘ll love how quick and easy these are to make!  www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #handmadecards #friendshipcards

The first card features the detailed leaves thinlits which has fantasitic die cut designs that could stand alone, like I show in this project. The maple leaf on this card look fantastic and it is the main focus element on my card!

To embellish this card I used the burlap ribbon and also the braided linen trim as I wanted to have an earthy look on this card. The color combination from this card came from the Nature’s Poem, as I shared in the past, I get most of my color combinations by looking at colors from the designer series paper packs, I find them that they inspire me a lot!

The second card I made on this event was a card that features coloring with stampin’ blends!! as you all know the alcohol markers are by far my favorite technique for coloring, and this set screams coloring!!

I colored this card using cajun craze, old olive and mango melody. The sentiment on this card came from the country home stamp set! I really think that both the Falling for Leaves and the Country Home stamp sets coordinate pretty well, specially with the sentiments!

The third card is a great way to show how to use the stamp set without having to color too much! the maple leave was stamped on cajun craze cardstock and I only highlighted some areas with the cajun craze stampin’ blends and added the wink of stella on these areas!! it really popped up a lot! I really think this card is cuter in person so you can see the shimmery accents on it!

I love how easy it was to make a background with the images on this stamp set! and again I paired with set with the sentiment from Country Home stamp set! This sentiment is just perfect for me!! as I am truly thankful for so many good things.. 🙂

Hello Friends! Today I wanted to share three cards featuring the designer series paper from the Holiday Catalog!! I truly believe that this year Stampin’ Up! has given us the best designer series paper packs ever!! I just love it all!! 
Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make Three cards featuring the designer series paper from the 2018 holiday catalog!

I made these cards at the end of August on a Facebook live event as we were kicking off the holiday catalog, but I have not shared them on my blog, and since the cards are still relevant to this season I wanted to make sure I share them here as well. 


If you didn’t know I hold a Facebook event every Thursday at 7pm CST on my Facebook page HERE, so if you have time one of these evenings you can join me for a relaxing time where I show three projects from start to end.. I will be more than happy to see you there! 


So the first card I made on this event showcased the Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper!! this is an amazing DSP as it was printed on shimmer paper!! so all the sheets are shinny and has that shimmery look that I love!!

This pack is definitely a good one for all occasions! one side has a floral design and on the other side has a monochromatic design, so it makes it a breeze to design cards with this pack!!

The second card is a Christmas card and it features the Santa’s Workshop specialty designer series paper! and what is especial of this is that it has parts of the designs with flock! it feels so velvety and soft that it is a joy playing with this paper pack.

The flock designs on this pack really adds another level of dimension to your projects, so this is another of my favorite packs! BTW this pack has Four sheets where some of the images can be die cut with the Santa’s Signpost framelits! Believe me you will want to have the bundle that has these framelits as these are adorable!

The Toil & Trouble designer series paper has a lot of great images that can be fussy cut or can be die cut with the cauldron framelits, I know you will fall in love with this suite!

Anyway, there are more designers series papers on the holiday catalog, however I couldn’t share all of them on only one Facebook live event! so make sure you check the holiday catalog to see them all.. I can tell you that the peaceful Noel suite has another specialty designer series paper that has copper foil on all sheets! this is for sure another of my favorites that will be showcased as I star sharing Christmas cards!

Cute Halloween card using Toil & Trouble DSP

Hello Friends!! here I am again sharing another cute Halloween card!! Like I have said in previous posts I cant get enough of the Toil & Trouble designer series paper! I absolutely love this suite for Halloween projects if you haven’t noticed LOL

Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make this cute halloween card using the Toil and Trouble designer series paper and!  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 #halloweencards

The card today also features the Buffalo Check stamp set, which is another favorite of mine from the Holiday catalog!! I really think that this set has so many possibilities for ALL occasions! and I really hope this set carry overs to the new catalog, so make sure you get it while is still available, as we don’t know if this will be available after December!

And to add a touch to the final card I added wink of stella to some areas of the cauldron, witch’s dress and hat as well as the star to add the shimmer look that I love! 


All the images from this card are cut outs from the designer series paper! as I mentioned earlier this is a fantastic designer series paper to have! too many possibilities for your Halloween projects! by the way a lot of the images from this paper pack can be die cut using the cauldron framelits dies!! so if you don’t like fussy cutting definitely get the bundle so you have the coordinating stamp set and the framelits! that way not only can you cut the stamped images but you can also die cut the Toil & Trouble designer series paper


And if you were wondering where that star came from, this element came from the Takeout thinlits dies! which I also think is a great die set to have as it makes cute little takeout boxes that you can use for so many events, this has a great stamp set that will help you customize your treat! you can see a cute halloween treat I made with this set HERE 

Watch the video tutorial below, where I go over measurements, tips and tricks on how to make this card. You will see that this card is so easy to duplicate!!






Below is the supply list for all the items I used to make this card. You can click at any of the images to go to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items!! There is also information regarding the card classes To-Go that I have available during October!
