It is great for cards all year long! I made this card using a couple different pieces of designer series paper. tams# 51925 Product List Forever Fern Cling Stamp Set... Continue reading

Today is my dad's birthday! I made him this card: I just love the Designer Series Paper Pack called In Good Taste. I wanted to design a card where it shows off the great designs in it. I cut 1 1/4 inch strips cutting just slightly before the 1 1/4 line. This gives a tiny bit of extra space. I then took the squares and arranged them on the Early Espresso piece until I am satisfied with the arrangement. I then adhere them to the card. Next I wrapped the braided trim around the Early Espresso piece twice. Stamp any... Continue reading

I have been really enjoying working with Jar of Flowers stamp set. It is much more versatile that I first thought. I used Just Jade as a card base and for the ribbon. I tied the ribbon in a bow and used a glue dot to adhere it to the card. This helps hide if you didn't line up the flowers to the jar just right. Just Jade is one of my favorite new In Colors. Flowers For Every Season is a 6x6 Designer Series Paper pack that I used. There is such a great assortment of papers in it.... Continue reading

I have been using Painted Poppies stamp set for my stamps in the mail. I wanted to design a card that also used our new Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designers Series Paper. It is a pack of embossed vellum in 3 colors. This is the card I came up with. I stamped the image of flowers using our Tuxedo Black Memento Pad, and then used the light Calypso Coral Stampin Blends to color in the flowers. I added green using the spatter stamp using Soft Sea Foam. I really like the texture on the vellum. It is a... Continue reading

The Happy Birthday To You Sale-A-Bration set has been a popular choice for Sale-A-Braiton. It is free with a $50 purchase. Stampin up added coordinating dies called Birthday Dies that ate $27. I designed this card to show them both off. The Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder adds a lot to the card. I used the dies to cut out the cake, flowers on the cake, and the cake plate. I fussy cut the Celebrate. Here is a close up of the flowers. The Birthday dies are available while supplies last, and the Happy Birthday To You Stamp set is while... Continue reading

For this quarter I am using the Painted Poppy Suite for my Stamps In The Mail club. If you have not checked this suite out, you should. It is amazing! At first I didn't think I needed it all, but I ended up getting it all and absolutely love it! For this card, I used both stamp sets and both sets of dies. I started with the group of flowers die from the Poppy Moment Dies. I really like how it looks with colored card stock behind it. I then stamped the flowers on scrap pieces of Whisper White and...

I love the Christmas Gleaming bundle that is in the Holiday Catalog. The coordinating Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper is a favorite with the copper in it. I am using several of the sheets for my Christmas cards this year and wanted to come up with a card for the Mossy Meadow sheets. This is the card I designed. I love how the designer series paper has shiny copper in it. I embossed the copper foil sheet with the same embossing folder as the front piece- Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. I punched the foil with the smaller of the... Continue reading

I was given It Starts With Art Stamp Set at our big demonstrator event last April. I thought it would go great with Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes. I made a batch of these to send to my recruits to congratulate them on their Stampin Up Year. Our Year is from October 1st- September 30th. Below you can see the note cards come with 4 different colors. I bought 4 packs of them since I always like to make multiples. I used the Old Olive Note Cards to make a card using Daisy Lane. You can see it here Daisy... Continue reading

Good Morning Magnolia Suite has been a popular Suite. I made this card using the new bulk pack of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper. Adding a 1' X 4 1/4' strip of designer series paper really adds to a card. You also can get a lot from one sheet! I wrapped the ribbon around the card base and tied it in a knot. I then tied on the greeting on using white baker's twine. I use a mini dimensional to keep the tag in place. It is a pretty simple card! tams# 38374 Product List Good Morning Magnolia Cling Stamp...

Folded card size: 6-1/4” x 4-1/4.” If you buy the Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack they fit perfectly on it and you can have 20 super quick cards.

I started using Lilypad Lake just recently and really love all the cards that you can make with it! I wanted to make a masculine card that used our Sail Away Trinkets. This is what I came up with. I first put the designer series paper on the card, then taped the ribbon where the two pieces meet. I punched a crumb cake piece and a Night of Navy piece using the Everyday Label punch. To make the Crumb cake look like it is layered, I cut it in half, and taped it so it sticks out a little on... Continue reading

I received the Daisy Lane stamp set at Stampin Up's On Stage event in April. I got busy, and just used it for the first time last week. You can buy the bundle and get a 10% discount getting the Medium Daisy punch with it. You can also buy the Larger daisy punch that has been around for awhile. I started by adding the fern like leaf all over the background. I think it looks kind of nice just like this on our pretty Scallop Notecards and Envelopes. The Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes come in a pack of 4... Continue reading

I just assembled my Lilypad Lake and decided it would make a great anniversary card. Today my husband and I are celebrating 24 years of marriage! I love our Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Ribbon, so I decided to start with that for color inspiration. When I stamped the 2 birds I noticed by having the one higher than the other that the water would cover the lily pads if I stamped the water where I wanted it to reach on the birds. I decided to mask them. The easiest way to do this is to stamp the lily pads on... Continue reading

We had our On Stage event this past weekend. It was so much fun! I love getting together with other demonstrators! It started Friday night with a special night for leaders. At every stamping event we get a bag. Isn't this cute! They had beautiful flowers on the tables. A great meal and many desserts to pick from! Of course we had several! The best part besides connecting with friends from all over, is we get the catalog early! We had several from our group and extended downline qualify to attend. (for the event on Friday you need to be... Continue reading

Stampin Up has so many great punches. I love when we have punches that coordinate with our sets. I also like using punches over dies when I am making multiple of the same card. They are so quick to use! This year Stampin Up is retiring several of our punches. They are available while supplies last so don't wait! I looked through some cards I have make awhile back using some of the punches retiring. This first card uses many different sizes of circles. We will still have the 2 1/4", 2", 1 1/2", 1", and 1/2 inch. If you... Continue reading

Today is my grandma's 91st birthday. I decided to make her a card using the elegant Wonderful Romance Stamp Set. I love all that is in the Floral Romance suite. I used the stamp set, dies, and the embossing folder. My Grandma loves getting my hand stamped cards. I wrote on a separate piece of paper so she can send the card to someone else when she is done having it on display in her kitchen. My grandma is so good about sending cards to others. Each kid, grandkid and great grandchild gets their own card in the mail for... Continue reading
