5 Stampin' Up! Expressions in Ink Projects + Video

If you have been following me, you probably know that my mom, Susan La Croix, is a demonstrator too. She live a couple states away, so we don't get to stamp together as often as we like. While visiting over spring break in March, Mom joined me for Thursday Night Stamp Therapy and we had so much fun that we thought we'd do it again! We recorded a special video on Mother's Day and shared projects using the new Expressions in Ink Suite from the 2021-2022 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog.

I had so much fun created with this suite. The designer paper is GORGEOUS! Since Mom created a series of "simple" to "avid" cards, I did the same. I actually started with the "over the top" card and then worked backgrounds to create a similar card that was "simple stamping" and one in the middle that was "stepped up". Which of these three cards is YOUR style? Leave a comment and let me know!

Here's another pair of projects. I made the "stepped up" version first and then created a "simple stamping" card with the same layout. Simple Stamping is great for new stampers who don't have a lot of tools in their collection. You can create beautiful cards with just stamps, ink, and paper.

I finally tried the corner pocket card and it's super easy! You may have seen the ones that I created with the So Cool Paper Pumpkin kit. This one, featuring the Snail Mail Suite, was the first one that I created a couple weeks ago during Thursday Night Stamp Therapy.

4 Easy Card Layouts with Sweet Symmetry Designer Paper


Whenever I need to jumpstart my creativity, I turn to my favorite card layouts. That is just what I did last week when I cracked open my box of new catalog goodies before Thursday Night Stamp Therapy. I used some of the easy card layouts from the Double Wonder Template that Shannon West created last year. Even though I didn't do the full Double Wonder card set, I was still able to use the measurements on the handout to create this quick and easy cards.

The Sweet Symmetry Designer Paper has small patterns, making it ideal for the Double Wonder card templates! Click here to check out the post from last year with all the details including cutting measurements, card layouts, and a video to follow along -- including a link to download the handout that I shared in Thursday night's video.

The next card is not a Double Wonder card layout, but I wanted to use the new Picture This die. It's quick and easy to layer some designer paper and a greeting to create a card with this stitched window die. The die set comes with two dies -- one retangle and one circles.

And one last easy card. I wanted to show how you can stack the bold words instead of layering the script and bold sentiments from the Biggest Wish stamp set.
