Whimsical Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Many of you know I’ve been busy preparing for my upcoming Holiday Stampin’ Retreat next weekend, and while doing so, I had some left over Mint Macaron circles … couldn’t let them go to waste so I paired it up with the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper …

The conventional patterns meet an unconventional color scheme in the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Specialty Series Paper. This paper is a lovely choice for those who want to celebrate the spirit of the season. Images include gifts, trees, snowflakes, and more. And once the holidays are done, use the versatile stripes and tone-on-tone patterns for all of your projects. This papercrafting staple is great scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more!

Now let’s take a look at that card ….

So simple yet so darn cute! I turned the circle into an ornament … the greeting comes from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set and is Heat embossed in silver. I also heat embossed the top to my ornament and used some silver cord from on of my Paper Pumpkin kits! There are always left over goodies to use.

The Basic Rhinestones were colored with the Stampin’ Blends …

I love a quick -n- easy card … especially when you can add some beautiful designer paper and a few items you have around the stamp room!! What can you create?

Thank you for joining me today… Happy 1st Day of November!!

Happy Stampin’ ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

In the wise words of Jane Austen: “The evergreen! How beautiful, how welcome, how wonderful the evergreen!” Embrace the everlasting beauty of the evergreen with the Evergreen Elegance Bundle!

This pretty pair of pine products—the Evergreen Elegance Stamp Set and Evergreen Border Punch—boasts beautifully bushy trees, festive phrases, soft touches of snow, and shining stars. While it’s the perfect pick for Christmas crafts, re-imagine and repurpose the set for any season! Stamp a summer night sky scattered with stars, fill a forest with flourishing trees, or watercolor a warm body of water.

Today’s card celebrate the season with friends …

1. Cut a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ (14.9 x 21 cm) and score at 4-1/4″ (10.8 cm). This is your card base.

2. Using the Poppy Parade Classic Stampin’ Pad®, add ink to each tree stamp from the Evergreen Elegance Stamp Set. Then, stamp onto the card front multiple times to create a tone-on-tone forest.

3. On Basic White Cardstock (4-3/8″ x 3-1/8″; 11.1 x 10.5 cm), stamp the solid star stamp three times in Pool Party ink. On the same piece, stamp the “It’s friends like you…” sentiment in Poppy Parade ink.

4. With the Evergreen Border Punch, punch three rows of evergreen trees from a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock. Adhere the rows together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, place them face-up on a piece of scratch paper, then apply ink directly to each row with the Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad®. To do this, swipe the ink pad across the paper until you achieve your desired coverage and color saturation. Once dry, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the trees to the bottom of the Basic White Cardstock.

5. To complete the card, use Stampin’ Dimensionals® to adhere the piece of Basic White Cardstock to the Poppy Parade card base.

Take a peek at how easy it was to make this card ….

Peaceful Christmas Alternative Projects …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share two cards with you today!! Both are alternative projects to the October 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit. You’re getting two cards today because the Paper Pumpkin cards beautiful design is not only on the front, but on the back as well … so with just a little trimming, you can double your card count!! Here are the pieces I used from the kit …

Can you see how the card laid out can easily be doubled … LOVE IT!! So I trimmed it down to 5-1/4″ … then I folded it in half, and cutting on the fold down to 4 inches, creating the two pieces. Then I took a sheet of Shaded Spruce, cut it in half and used the two pieces for my card bases. Then I attached my cut card fronts onto my card bases …

On my first one I cut down the card front from the other card in this kit to use as an accent on this card. I then stamped the greeting that is include in the kit with the Shaded Spruce ink pad (also included in the kit) I popped it up and it completed my card!

My second card uses a few other pieces; the banner and circle and the Noel … so no stamping needed on this one. I used the Glue Dots to attach the “Noel” and then I popped up the entire greeting and placed it in the lower left hand corner, trimming off the left side of the banner.

I also cut 2 … 4″ x 5-1/4″ Basic White for the inside of my card … those I stamped with the trees included in the kit. (It matches the trees shown on the enveloped below) I love that you get “everything” you need to create beautiful cards, and that there is the ability to change up the design … or double it, like we got to do in this kit!

I’m sharing the video again today for those who may have missed it yesterday….

I hope this inspires you to try out some of our upcoming Paper Pumpkins! Here is a peek of our November Paper Pumpkin …

I hope you enjoyed the alternative projects and how you can “stretch” your kit … and still get amazing cards! You can click on any of the links below to begin a Pre-Paid Subscription or you can CLICK ON THIS LINK to start the monthly subscription.

Sending Peppermint Kisses …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m working on my upcoming Stamping Retreat and having a blast … I can’t wait to share all the amazing projects with my guests. One of the the suites we are creating with is our Gingerbread & Peppermint. This card is “not” one of the retreat cards, but I wanted to share this cutie as it highlights the Designer Series paper from the Stampin’ Up! Aug. – Dec. Mini Catalog

This simple layout is sweet when you need to create many Christmas cards and all of those candies brighten anyone’s day.

The candies were created with the coordinating dies and are done in Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive …

I had to add the Wink of Stella to my candies to make them glisten. There are several circle dies and candy tops that will help you create some needed depth and texture to the card.

Don’t you just love a quick -n- easy cards … especially when you have a BIG Christmas card list. The quicker you get done, the more Hot Chocolate you can enjoy … while your stamping! Hard to think of Hot Chocolate when you are going to have temps in the high 90’s!

Two for Tuesday: Christmas Snowflakes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Look … another day closer to the weekend and hmmm … Christmas! It’s sneaking up fast and I have been busy creating for my Fall Holiday Stamping Retreat, so Christmas cards are second nature to me right now.

Many of us would love to send out hand-made Christmas cards but do not have a lot of time, so I’m here to help with an … oh so cute, and quick & easy card you can recreate in no time at all …

Two simple colors of cardstock; Basic White and Balmy Blue. I used the Time of Giving Stamp Set for the snowflake swirls inside the card and to decorate my envelope.

I used the Wintry 3-D Embossing Folder on the Balmy Blue for both my cards. Then the Wonderful Snowflakes … they are iridescent so the color just dances across them.

If you’re looking for just a little more color … you can use any one of our Stampin’ Blends and color your Snowflakes … and best of all, that iridescence shines right through.

You can create these pretty snowflake cards with ease and in no time at all. It’s a card base with a contrasting piece that measures 3″ x 4-1/4″. I hope you try out this simple layout.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. A simple layout so you can create your Christmas Cards with ease … fun for the whole family!

Simply Sunday: Getting Punchy with Tidings of Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Wooo Hooo … I’m back up and running with a new modem!! Soooo … Today I’d like to share two cards that I created during World Card Making Day for a LIVE Demonstration … It highlights the Tailored Tag Punch and the wonderful products from the Tidings of Christmas Suite.

Using one of the sheets from the Tidings of Christmas Designer paper, I punched out 5 shapes, adhering two of one pattern, then flipping the punched shape over and aligning it between the center of the two already attached and then adhering the other two … trim off excess.

The greeting comes from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set which is part of the Tidings of Christmas Suite. I stamped it in Evening Evergreen on White Cardstock and then punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch, I then punched out a piece from Soft Succulent to use as a mat behind it … it is cut in half and then placed behind the greeting and the entire piece is popped up. I finished it off with the 2020-23 In Color Gems.

On my second card I used two different sheets of the Tidings of Christmas Designer paper so I would have more variation in the paper. If you look closely, you will see two different patterns in the Sahara Sand and again on the white. They are then layered with alternating patterns and the edges trimmed off. This time the greeting was stamped in Soft Succulent and I used it to mat it as well … l love how easy it is to coordinate everything.

Instead of the gems, I used the beautiful Evening Evergreen Chevron Woven Ribbon … it brings out the Evergreen from the card mat and and from the designer paper. The card base is Soft Succulent.

You can create a multitude of patterns and color combinations when using the Tailored Tag Punch and the wonderful products from the Tidings of Christmas Suite. If you don’t have the items you need … I have a list of the supplies below for your convenience.

Thank you for stopping by today and spending some time with me. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Joyful Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a “simply” beautiful card using the Peaceful Prints Designer paper, and today I have another with this paper but highlighting the NEW Holly Border Punch. It was something on my Wish List so today I wanted to share this card with you… these two holiday treats paired perfectly together.

Like you, I get bogged down with work, chores, kids … yes, mine are older but they still call Mom!! lol So I like to share pretty cards that are quick & easy card to make. A little layering and it looks all decked out!!

I chose this cute polka dot paper so the green would show through the punched holly! It’s actually 2 pieces, one behind the holly punch and the other as our background. I used Basic Black with the Holly punch to create an eye catching impact!

I layered a piece of red plaid behind the holly piece to add a pop of color and to coordinate and make the Red Rhinestones light up the card. I used the “Take Your Pick” tool to pick up and apply the rhinestones to my card.

Both designer paper patterns are from the limited time offer Peaceful Prints Designer Paper as our background. This paper is just one of the items you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase!

I used the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set for my greeting, it is stamped with our Tuxedo Black Momento Ink and punched with the Double Oval punch.

I used the adorable White Glitter Organdy Ribbon to tie together all of the white on the card and add just a little more sparkle, as if the 23 Red Rhinestones didn’t do it!! Some girls like their sparkle … just saying 😉

Don’t forget … the Peaceful Prints designer paper is FREE for a limited time. Our Sale-a-bration period ends in just 3 days! I have included a list of ingredients for you below.

Simple Sunday: Wintry Cabin

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you ready for another card from the Peaceful Cabin Bundle and Peaceful Place Specialty Designer paper? Today’s card highlights the pattern with several cabins on it … it is so pretty, I just had to use it and share it with you.

If you’re looking for a quick & easy card to make this holiday season this could be exactly what you are looking for …. You will get 12 cards just from this pattern!

I also love that this beautiful card could be sent to your best girlfriend or your brother as we would all love to spend some time in that lovely A-Frame house … at least I would. As a child I had a fascination with them, so unique and beautiful!

Here is the entire packet of the Peaceful Place Designer Series paper …

I chose to compliment this designer paper with a pop of Real Red to usher in that holiday feeling. The swish of the ribbon adds movement to the card like the breeze of winter winds.

I used the Everyday Label punch to showcase my sentiment and then added a pop of the red behind it to make it really create it as the focal point …

A touch of the Wink of Stella on the two main cabins in the woods really adds that wintry shimmer to our scene. I added a little sparkle to my card with the Wonderful Gems. These are adhesive-backed, faceted gems with gold glitter flecks. You see a touch of that shimmer in the ribbon as well … it coordinates so lovely together.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing a part of your Sunday with me.

Peaceful Cabin

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m thrilled to share this card today … My Stamp Club is meeting this week and we are using the Peaceful Place suite which includes the Peaceful Cabin Bundle and Peaceful Place Specialty Designer paper. You can find these goodies in the Mini catalog on pages 36 through 38.

I thought they would love to have another sample to use when they get their products from this suite so I came up with this little beauty ….

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of the Peaceful Cabin Stamp Set, to another place, and escape. This versatile set has stamps you can use separately, or you can pair them for a peaceful, wintry scene. You’ll be creating the warmth which reflects the beauty of the season by adding these serene greetings and images to your handmade cards, gift tags and more.

The calming nature scenes and muted color schemes in the specialty paper will set the perfect mood for your cards or scrapbook pages.

Although the trees look black they are actually Evening Evergreen as is the mat behind this beautiful paper. The cabin is cut from Basic White and all of them are popped up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals …

I stamped the greeting in Evening Evergreen. The greeting comes from the Time of Giving stamp set from the Time of Giving Bundle (I’ll be sharing samples from that bundle in upcoming posts).

The coordinating products in this suite make it so easy to create these amazing cards … I think this card would also make the perfect birthday card. Who doesn’t love a cabin in the woods, the perfect escape!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by and visit!

Have a nice weekend ~

That Polar Bear is so cute and the card is so simple to make, (check out yesterday’s post for directions) it’s not a surprise this is in the Top 3, however … I thought it was the #1 Card!!

Hmmm … which one do you think it is?

Still time to Party with the Penguins!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Wooo Hooo it’s “almost” Friday and I’m thrilled to share some cute cards that I have created with the Penguin Playmates Designer paper. You’re going to love this paper not just because it is sooo stinkin’ cute, but because you can get it for FREE! It’s one of the Sale-a-bration items you can choose. Let’s check out the first of two cards …

Because we’re showcasing the designer paper, I will tell you that I fussy cut my images out, but he’s a big ‘ole cuddly Polar Bear so he was pretty easy to cut out!! Once my images were cut out, I picked my colors … his scarf is Just Jade so I coordinated my ink with that, then I decided to use Soft Sea Foam for my card base and the ink that I applied with the Blending Brush.

Once I applied the ink … and it dried, I decided to add some pretty texture by using one of the folders from the Wintry 3-D embossing folder. I just fell in love with the snowflakes and swirls! This gave me the idea to tuck one of the Wonderful Snowflakes behind my Polar Bear. The greeting comes from the Festive & Bright stamp set.

My second card now highlights the sweet little penguin and his snowman buddy! I wanted to highlight the black from the characters so I used in as my card base and my greeting, which also came from the Festive & Bright stamp set.

I used another pattern … which matches my penguins hat as my back drop. I also used the Wintry 3-D embossing folder for texture and to set the stage for my playmates! The snowman is enhanced with Wink of Stella and he’s so happy he started to juggle the cute “Opal Rounds” … also known as snowballs!!

Why am I sharing all these cards? Because I have one more for you … I’m sharing these littel cuties because of this ….

I would not be doing my job as your creative coach / Stampin’ Up! demonstrator if I didn’t tell you that our Sale-a-bration ends in less than 2 weeks and when the items are gone … they are gone 😦

My last card today is a quick and simple card that highlights this cute pattern and had a banner greeting (Sorry for the pun!)

This is an item you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase… but time is running out. I have a list of supplies below. These are easy Christmas cards that you can make… I’d be flattered!

Flippin’ for Waterfall Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today, I’m sharing the fabulous flippin’ Waterfall card with you … this fun is just that, FUN!! I have three cards and a short video for you today.

Let’s start with the first card I created using the Beautifully Penned Designer paper from our Sale-a-bration catalog (FREE with a $50 purchase / before Ship&Handling)

I gave the flowers a hint of color using my Flirty Flamingo ink pad and Sponge Daubers. I then went over the flowers with the Wink of Stella.

The second card was created with the Cute Halloween Designer paper … you can find this adorable paper in the Mini Catalog.

The background paper comes from the Pattern Party Designer paper which is one of our Hostess Gifts!! You’ll see in the video how I embellished the paper with a pop of color….

You will want to watch the video as it shows you how simple the cards are to create, and how budget friendly this layout truly is. I even talk about how you break down the costs.

Enjoy the video and please let me know if you have any questions …

The crucial dimensions you need for your Waterfall card is the Waterfall itself: 9-1/4″ x 2″ … Punch one end and flip to score other side: Score at 2″ … 2-3/4″ … 3-1/2″ and 4-1/4″. Then you will need your “band” which hold down the sliding part of your card: 4-1/4″ x 3/4″.

The last card that I shared in the video was the Christmas Card that I created using the Penguin Pals designer paper … another Sale-a-bration item!! I want to remind you that our Sale-a-bration promotion ends in about 2 weeks … wow, that time sure flew by!

Thank you for stopping by and spending a part of your day with me. I hope the rest of your day is wonderful ~

Simply Sunday: Beauty of the Earth Card Parade

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a treat for you today … a simple yet beautiful Slim Line card and a parade of other cards that were created from the amazing Beauty of the Earth Suite. I will also be sharing some fun techniques on these cards so, grab a cup of coffee and sit back with me while we go through these creative gems!

First up is my Slimline cards, this card fits in a business size envelope … I’m using two different patterns from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and joined them together with the pretty Gold Fine Art Ribbon; it has a touch of sparkle, so I had to add the Genial Gems to keep the sparkle going.

The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set / bundle. I chose the Cinnamon Cider as a mat and Merry Merlot as my card base … they pull those colors out of the designer paper. I find this suite / bundle very gender neutral … who wouldn’t love these cards!

My second card I’m using the same pattern of the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper and the Beautiful Trees dies. Another simple card when using your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. The greeting comes from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set included in the bundle.

Ready to see another card using the same paper? The amazing thing is that each one looks sooo different! I used a landscape layout verses the portrait as I did on the first two cards and created this unique card. I also used Night of Navy on this card to pull out the blue in the designer paper.

I created the frame with the Stitched Rectangle Dies … I love this look, it’s new and fresh and highlights the designer paper. I added the tree and greeting from the bundle …

Now lets change things up a little by using a different pattern from our Beauty of the Earth Designer paper and a fun technique … the “Split Card Technique”. I’m using Old Olive and Early Espresso to coordinate with my designer paper. You can watch the video to see how to create this card yourself by CLICKING HERE!

Yesterday I shared the next card with you … the card base is Early Espresso and so is the tree itself, it made the Misty Moonlight designer paper from the Beauty of the Earth Designer paper really pop, and when I added the leaves to the trees … WOW! The leaves on the bottom are just another die cut of the top … just cut up into smaller pieces to lay upon the ground. So pretty!

The last card I have to share with you, used the same watercolor background paper but I’m changing up the seasons. Once the leaves are gone … well, winter comes next, and it makes for the perfect Christmas card …

I just love this card and I used the Chalk pen and Wink of Stella to add snow to my tree! How fun is that! I just wanted to show you that this is not just another tree set, but a bundle / or suite that can be used for any season … or any reason!!

Don’t forget it’s Sale-a-bration and you can get a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration catalog with the purchase of the suite or the bundle!! If you choose the suite … just add on a few more items and you’ll have enough to get my FREE Delicate Dahlia Class!

Thank you for joining me this Sunday for my card parade, I hope you enjoyed the many styles of cards. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Stop back tomorrow because I have another card that will knock your socks off!!
