Stamping around the world


Hi there! It has been a long time since I posted here on the blog, though I have kept sharing weekly content on my facebook page Creating with Allie. The reason for this was that I was making some changes and upgrades to my blog.. It now moved to a different platform which hopefully will make things a lot better for you.. 

I gotta confess, the blog was finalized mid July, but as usual, life was just hectic with two little ones, a brand new work, and all things around the house, that kept me from really learning the new platform.. ha!, you see, in my head the change was going to be super quick and all was going to be super easy.. however as with everything in life, there is always a learning curve, and sometimes we get all frustrated when things are not getting right the first time.. has that happened to you?? probably so..

Anyway, I decided to step away and breath and try to learn more about this new platform and today with the Stamping Around the World designer team’ blog hop, I made up my mind to just jump at it and get into it.. This was the perfect excuse I needed to forget about all my frustrations and just get to it.. After all, I just upgraded to this platform right? I now need to use it!! and how am I going to get better if I don’t even give it a try? really, I always tell this to my toddler “Just try it”, and here I was doing exactly the opposite!! anyway.. here I am, teaching by example to my little ones…  😉 so here we go!!

Stamping Around the World Blog Hop!

If you are new to the Stamping Around the World Designer team, let me share with you a little bit!,  We are a team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the globe who design tutorials to make a bundle that we offer as an incentive when you purchase with us, so if you are in the US and purchase with me $50 worth of products at my Stampin’ Up Store, you get the Tutorial bundle for FREE!!! that is 12 tutorials for FREE!!!  If you are a demonstrator and want to get the tutorial bundle you can also purchase it with me for $20.. you can see a sneak peek below of this month’s Tutorial! 🙂

With this being said, every month this team hops together to show you additional projects using the same stamp set that we used on our tutorial!, so in my case I will share with you the Dinoroar Suite!!!

Meet the Dinoroar Suite!

Learn how to make Three cute cards using the Dinoroar suite from Stampin' Up!

Are these little dinosaurs the cutest or what??? I really think so!, the minute I saw them on the new catalog I knew I wanted to get them for my little Oliver!, these are perfect for toddlers, don’t you think?

The colors were selected by going with the colors contained in the designer series paper (DSP); this one is one of the best tips for card making. Actually this is one of the reasons why I love Stampin’ Up! so much, you can literary get anything to coordinate pretty well when it comes to their products as everything is color coordinated, meaning if you see in the DSP that Old Olive is included, then you can get ink, cardstock and other embellishments on this same color! making it super easy to create cards as everything coordinates perfectly!! no more guessing if this green is the same shade of green as the one I have at home? right?? I know!! That is pretty cool!!!

Anyhow here is a close up of all the cards made, I am sure you will love recreating them, and I have also added the video where you can see step by step how to make them all!!! 🙂

All these cards were actually made during one of my Facebook lives, where I typically show you how to make three cards using a specific product or technique, or sketch, and lately I have been sharing some of my designing tips to make card making go even easier, since a lot of the times I get questions around how do I come up with designs or how do I keep bringing ideas.. If you have time, come join me next Thursday on my Facebook page Creating with Allie at 7pm CST where you can see the next show and ask any question you might have regarding card making. I’ll be more than happy to see there! 🙂

Facebook live 4-27-18 Magical day

Hello Friends!! Here are the cards we made on the facebook live event from 4/27. For this week I decided to use the same stamp set but change the background, to show you different ways to embellish the backgrounds and have different looks on your cards..

By the way the stamp set and coordinating thinlits are retiring at the end of May, so if you like this set, make sure you grab it before its gone!!


The first card is using watercolor paper!! and this one is colored with the ink pads and the aqua painters!! it is a little bit time consuming but if you use the heat tool you can accelerate the process a bit..

This cute unicorn comes from the magical day stamp set!! is that not gorgeous!!! It is perfect for little girls if you ask me!!


All of the unicorns were colored the same, I used memento ink, and then colored them with the stampin blends, I used the lighter shades for the hair, and then used the smoky slate for the shadows on the body and the pink pirouette for the cheeks, this always add a little personality to the critters, then of course I used the wink of stella over the hair!! I just love the shimmery look it leaves on the hair!! 


The clouds from all cards are from the Up & Away thinlits!! these coordinated perfectly!! love the look, specially cause all clouds were cut from the glimmer paper from myths and magic!! this is really stunning in person!
