Wetlands is one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2013-14 catalog.  Here are few cards I made a while back: Gorgeous Grunge on the first, masking on the second and gel pen on the third (sponging used on all 3).    Today is the last day to get the butterfly bundle at Stay tuned […]

Hey Friend

Hey Friend is the Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit for the monthly retreat in the mail.  This is the card that I sent out last month to thank those that purchased the kit.  I used the same layout as earlier, just changing to the stamps in the kit.  I did add the flower from the Flower […]

Bermuda Bay

I’m catching up on some older cards that might have cased layouts.  I’m so happy to have Bermuda Bay back!  The first card shows a couple different things you can do with the hexagon punch.  Both cards feature a large background stamp – the chevron and butterfly, embossed in white.

A Study in Case

I saw a similar layout to this with products from a different company, and recreated it with all Stampin’ Up!  I created circles by stamping the Oh, Hello oval and then punching.  I added a different spin to the layout with the Mosaic Madness and Sassy Salutations stamp sets. All products can be purchased at

Banner Kit Stencil Cards

I haven’t made a banner yet with the Stampin’ Up! Simply Created Banner Kit (Holiday Catalog).  Instead I have been making monogram cards with the stencils.  What fun!  The first one is CASEd from our demonstrator magazine.  I used our spritzers with alcohol and reinker (about 20 drops for a full bottle – adjust for […]

We used the new Expressions Thinlits by Stampin’ Up! at my last class.  They are so cool!  I’m going to share some tips to help you with the fragile die cuts. 1.  Adhere your cardstock or designer paper to a multipurpose adhesive sheet (SU catalog p.174).  You can either cut the same size as your cardstock, […]

Magnificent Maple Critter

What did the fox say?  I can’t decide if it’s a coyote, wolf or a fox, but I adapted this kid’s craft made with real maple leaves to a card using the Stampin’ Up! Magnificent Maple Stamp.  The ears, nose and eye pieces are all from the Owl Builder punch.  The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.  All products […]
