It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Product Spotlight" challenge. That's right, punches ARE a stampers best friend. Why...because with a quick stamp and punch, you've got an easy-to-make embellishment for your cards. Stampin' Up! has a large offering of punches. I chose the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch, and the coordinating Making Christmas Bright stamp set (bundle % save 10%). It was an easy choice, as it was another card I offered at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class. The ladies found it a little fussy at first, but when their card all came together, I heard...

Are you done with your holiday cards yet? Today's card is perfect for last minute holiday cards. It uses the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper, and was a hit at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack class. This simple, but stunning card is easily made in no time at all. And...because this DSP pack comes with 4 sheets of three double-sided patterns, you'll get 24 cards from one pattern - yay! How'd She DO That? Dashing Along Seasonal card: Stamps: Merry Christmas to All Paper: Very Vanilla Thick (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base, 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" for greeting) Dashing Along Designer Series Paper... Continue reading

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge. This week we're having a "Home Sweet Home" challenge. My eye was drawn towards the plaid patterns on the packaging for today's challenge.

But then thought I should give the Annual Catalog a little attention and pulled out the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. How'd She DO That tips for Sweetly Stitched Tree card: Stamps: none Paper: Real Red (4-1/4" x 11" card base) Old Olive (scraps for dies - Stitched Tree, 2-1/2" Scalloped Square) Early Espresso...

Today is Birthday Monday and I have a quick & cute card for you, using the 2018 Holiday Catalog Wishing You Well stamp set. I was drawn to the Wishing You Well stamp set right away. I love the floral spray, as well as the wreath and the bow - it looks SO REAL. The greetings are lovely too But are missing a birthday sentiment (IMO). So I searched through my stamp sets and found one that works perfectly...from Varied Vases.

We made this card at my Stampin' Club... Continue reading
