Happy Scenes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share with you a post from the Stampin’ Up! Get Inspired blog. When their concept artists or staff writers share awesome cards & projects … I just have to share with you. So please note that the following information is from that blog post …

Window cards are trendy, they’re so much fun to make—and we have everything you need to create one yourself using products from our brand new holiday catalog!



The Happy Scenes Stamp Set (item # 139821) includes 16 photopolymer stamps with autumn/winter landscape images and sayings that are perfect for end-of-the-year holidays. Stamp a little landscape and enclose it in a window frame—which you can make using the Big Shot and our Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies (item # 139666). Instant cuteness! (I borrowed this card idea from p. 11 of the holiday catalog.)


For the Halloween card I included the cat from the Festive Fireplace Stamp Set (item # 139754). He just seemed to fit!

And here’s some great news: when you purchase the Happy Scenes Stamp Set + Hearth and Home Thinlits as a bundle (item # 140853), you save fifteen percent!

Simply Sunday: Silent Night

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a simply beautiful card that I did at with my technique clubs this month. We focused on the “Woodland” embossing folder and some fun techniques that you can use with them to create a “WOW” card.

I paired up the Woodland folder with the beautiful “Wonderland” and “Happy Scenes” stamp sets…


To create this beautiful card, you simply stamp directly onto the Woodland embossing folder with the pines from the Wonderland stamp set. Be sure you stamp on the “raised” side of the folder (the trees will be recessed on the side you stamp on).

Silent Night is stamped on vellum in Mossy Meadow and tucked behind your embossed front … I also used Mossy Meadow to mat the front and highlight the beautiful color.


For the inside of the card, we stamped the trees from “Happy Scenes” into the corner and the verse from “Wonderland” into the center. I love how many of the stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! coordinate together.

Hope you enjoyed my card …


 and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Thanks for stopping by ~




Touch of Autumn in the Air …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card created with the “Woodland” embossing folder! This is such a fun one to play with… I’m sure you’ll come up with more great ideas too.

I teamed it up with the “Happy Scene’s” stamp set … I inked up the fall image with the Momento Ink pad and then did a combination of watercoloring with my blender pen and sponging to soften it up a bit.


I created a unique focal point of that image by cutting it out with the “Leaflets” framelit dies and then matted it with the Tangelo Twist to make it pop even more.

I used one of the other leaves for my greeting which came from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set. Just a fun little twist to an autumn card.


Thank you for dropping by today. I’ll be back tomorrow with the Weekly Deals.

I hope you have a wonderful week.
