Harvest Hellos

Filed under: Projects — October 17, 2019 @ 11:05 am

Here’s a fun bundle for you to play with for fall.  The punch does double duty – both pumpkins and apples!  Stampin’ Up! hit it out of the park on Harvest Hellos.

Today’s Tips:

Stamp on Designer paper and punch – so easy!

Stamp on Whisper White cardstock and color with Stampin’ blends.

Stamp on colored cardstock – the third card is by Barbara Waldsmith and was sent to me for #worldcardsendingweek  I love how she made a basket for the apples.

And here’s where you can grab this fun bundle in my store.

Happy crafting,

Purchase this great bundle or any other products this month, and I’ll send you my CardClass pdfs for Perfectly Plaid (the 3 cards above and more).

Wrapped in Plaid

Filed under: Projects — October 11, 2019 @ 2:43 pm

Wrapped in Plaid is my current favorite Stampin’ Up! product suite.  There is so much you can do with the cool plaid paper.  And the multiple styles of trees with matching punch are just the easiest to craft for both fall and Christmas.

And here are the cards for class next week.  If you can’t make the local class, I’ll send you the pdfs after your online purchase.  There is so much you can do with this awesome bundle!

Christmas Time is Here (almost)

Filed under: Projects — October 1, 2019 @ 8:22 am

If you liked the Magnolia Lane Suite by Stampin’ Up!, you will love the Christmas Rose Bundle and this limited time product suite.

Isn’t this stamp set gorgeous?  It is another Stampin’ Up! first – a combination red rubber cling (for the fine outline stamp) and photopolymer for the DistINKtive shaded stamps.    And the paper – oh my – another beautiful design with metallic accents.  And another first for a Stampin’ Up! suite – a fabulous rose bracelet.

Actually, don’t contact me to order now, because this suite is not available until November!  But I’m not teasing you for nothing, you can add it to your demonstrator starter kit, and get it at a discount with free shipping too!  The order # is 153947 and my join link is here.

Or you can add the new Stampin’ Trimmer (# 152392, blades #152391) to your kit today instead.    Sorry,  it’s available only for demonstrators at this time also!

If joining now doesn’t work for you, there are still some great new products in the Holiday Catalog that should satisfy your fall and holiday crafting urge.

If you enjoy making Halloween projects like these cards I made, there are several fun stamp sets and coordinating accessories at my shop.

And my class of the month is Perfectly Plaid – free pdfs with each purchase.  The cards are just 3 of the many that I have made.  IMO, this is the most versatile suite of the season.

If you are an avid crafter, the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley is for you.  It has everything – stamps, dies, metallic designer paper and cardfronts, stickers, tinsel and stars. And,  I have an add – on kit to send you as a gift for your purchase plus an exclusive Facebook group with over 50 projects and tips!

Stampin’ Up! has what you need for a fulfilling season of crafting this fall.  And thanks for supporting my home business too.

Happy crafting,

Laser Cards meet Designer Series Paper

Filed under: Projects — September 23, 2019 @ 8:49 am

I had a thought – why not pair the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut cards with some of the beautiful papers (DSP) on sale in September?  My tips are below.

Tip:  Solid papers worked better with the laser-cut cards.  The See A Silhouette pack was my favorite for this, but many of the papers have a back that is more solid.  Then when you open the card….

Tip: I was cheap with my paper and cut at 4 x 5-7/16th.  That way you can get 6 from each piece of DSP.  And it’s just a smidge shorter so it won’t stick out on top or bottom.  It is a little tricky to glue.  I made a tiny line of liquid glue at top and bottom of the card, and a few dots here and there inwards on the sides.

I’m working ahead on Christmas cards, so I added the Everything Festive stamp set with the Nested Stitched Labels dies and some gold ribbon.   Oh, don’t miss the Holiday Rhinestones to add some bling.   So bright and so easy!

I hope you give this idea a try.

Happy crafting,

Clearance Rack Alert – New items were just added at 60% off – while supplies last at my shop.

For my last Card Class, I used the Pressed Petals Designer Series paper with several different stamp sets.  I was excited that you could get this gorgeous paper free in September.  And now here are some cards I made with the bundle that it is paired with in the Annual Catalog (Path of Petals).  Aren’t the intricate dies beautiful too?

I especially love the sentiments in this stamp set.  In fact the whole Suite is pretty nice!
