Gingerbread & Peppermint is my favorite Stampin’ Up! suite right now. Who can resist a Frosted Gingerbread cookie? And the paper ones have zero calories! Here’s a look back at one of the cards from my August Class. We used an angle cut on the cute Designer Series Paper. Be sure to join my Facebook […]

Counting Sheep by Stampin’ Up! seems to be a top favorite Sale-a-bration freebie. There are some amazing stand-alone die sets (not bundled) that work perfectly with these stamps, or with any “critter” stamps that you might have. First, let’s look at the Sheep dies (another SAB freebie). My favorite is the fence die. It embosses […]

Today is the last day for the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper Sale, but it’s always a good day to play with pretty paper! I went with the “In Good Taste” paper for some nice, neutral backgrounds for these “Hat’s Off” cards. The circles cut with the “Picture This” dies from the tile pattern almost […]

Today I’m sharing another favorite Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up! I had a lot of fun playing with the Plentiful Plants bundle with the Bloom Where You’re Planted Paper.
