Simply Sunday: Gettin’ Punchy

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Today I’d like to share a few cards with you that highlight the beautiful “Pleased as Punch” Designer Series Paper.  This little tour of cards will lead you to the “Under My Umbrella” stamp set … this will set you up for the cards I will be sharing with you tomorrow and Tuesday.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper was introduced with the Coordination Product release.  These are special products created to coordinate with our favorite products from the January–June 2020 Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.

The “Pleased As Punch” Designer paper coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack, Tulip Builder and Umbrella Builder punches all from the Mini Catalog and the Bloom Punch which you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration!

Here is a simple and cute card that I created with the Heart Punch Pack that is part of the Heartfelt Bundle found in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog. I embellished my punched hearts with pearls and the little flowers and greeting is part of the January 2020 Paper Pumpkin….

The pretty gingham background paper is included in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series paper!

This sweet card was created with the Small Bloom Punch that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration.  I teamed it up with two patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer paper. You can actually punch out the flowers from the designer paper making this card super simple to recreate …..

You have just seen 4 patterns used in two different cards … the versatility of this amazing paper is endless.  Let’s move on to yet another card.  This card also featured that pretty pink gingham paper and highlights the tulips that coordinate with the Timeless Tulips Bundle

If the winter has you a bit punchy, then the Pleased as Punch Designer paper should be on your Wish List.  It coordinates with four different punch packs / punches yet can be used for any card and any occasion.

My last card comes from the Under My Umbrella bundle …

This pattern in the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper allows you punch both the open and closed umbrellas. I fell in love with this paper while creating all these cards but it was the “Under My Umbrella” bundle that inspired me to purchase it.

And it was those little boots that pulled at my heart strings … There was nothing stopping me for purchasing the Under My Umbrella stamp set.  You will see more in the next few days.

Until then … I hope you enjoyed see how versatile the Pleased As Punch Designer paper is.  Please note that this is a special product introduction that will only be available during Sale-a-bration … OR Until Supplies Last!

Thank you for hanging out with me this Sunday, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of your day ~

National Wear Red Day® – Cards dressed in Red!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

On the first Friday of every February, which is designated as American Heart Month, the nation comes together, igniting a wave of red from coast to coast. From landmarks to news anchors and neighborhoods to online communities; this annual groundswell unites millions of people for a common goal: the eradication of heart disease and stroke. (Taken from the site)

So … as I wear my red today, I thought it would be fun to share a couple cards dressed in red and highlighting our hearts.  Let’s start sweet -n- simple, this easy to create card uses only 4 items with your cardstock!!  I began with Real Red cardstock for my base and pulled out the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  I choose the red & pink heart pattern.

I love the Heart Doilies and decided to use them for this card.  You get pink and red doilies in the pack, and if you flip them over … they are white! So the base is the red doily, then I cut down one down and used the white side to stamp my greeting. The greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set.  I finished this card off with a pretty red bow.

For my second card, I took the red & pink pattern from the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper and flipped it over!  The flip side reveals this cute red foil with pink & white polka dots.

You can easily see that I incorporated the doilies in my second card as well. The pretty foil heart was punched out from another sheet of the “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper.  You can use either of the punches in the punch pack on these hearts, I used the scalloped heart punch.

I added a piece of vellum cardstock to highlight the punched heart, and the greeting comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which bundles with the Heart Punch Pack. A little strip of Whisper White cardstock cut into a banner highlights the greeting.

Our Heartfelt Bundle and coordinating “From My Heart” Specialty Designer Series paper is not just for Valentines, it’s great for your friends, for weddings, baby showers and more. Today it’s to celebrate life … to bring awareness to the fight against heart disease.

Thank you so very much for sharing a part of your day with me today… enjoy the rest of your Friday.

One of the items from the Coordinating”Pleased As Punch” designer paper were the tulips so I’ll just share a cute card that was created by Stampin’ Up! using the  “Timeless Tulips” bundle …

Simply Sunday: Love You Lots

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share one of the cards that we made in our January Stamp Club using the Heartfelt Bundle.  I will tell you it’s not the best photo (I took it sitting on my couch) but I love the card … it is cased from fellow demonstrator Mary Fish.

The Heartfelt Bundle includes the Heartfelt Stamp Set and the Heart Punch Pack. Use the hearts and arrows in the Heartfelt Stamp Set to create treat tags, boxes, and cards for Valentine’s Day. The greetings are designed to convey love and friendship.

Use the Heart Punch Pack to create a paper heart and a scallop paper heart. Use punched images separately or layer for beautiful coordination. I wanted to show that the beautiful designer paper was created to be “punched” out if you choose. I teamed it up with another pattern from the designer paper.

We punched out the “designer” heart and backed it with a Flirty Flamingo heart punched from the scallop Heart punch included in the bundle.

The playful heart patterns in the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper have red and pink foil accents on some designs. Some images from the paper can be cut out using the Heart Punch Pack. This paper is excellent for valentines, cards, and scrapbook pages.

You’ll get 12 sheets of patterned paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  It is Acid free and Lignin free! The designer paper colors include: Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Whisper White … we found making our cards that if you stamp off the Flirty Flamingo, you will get that pretty pink that coordinates with the paper!

Oh I can’t wait to get back into my studio and start stamping!! Do you know how hard it is to have off work and not be able to get in your stamp room … I’m going crazy! lol

Thank you so very much for stopping in today. I love using punches, it makes card making go so quickly.

Have a beautiful day ~
