Step it up!

In this recent Facebook Live, I demonstrated how you can make a few changes to a simple card to "step it up" making a more interesting card with more details. I enjoyed using the Harvest Hellos Bundle including the stamp set and Apple Builder Punch to make 3 different cards for teachers.

Winter Woods Birthday Card

I recently demonstrated the Stamping Off Technique in one of my weekly Facebook Lives. If you missed it, you can check it out here: http://bit.ly/2ZmBn8d

Below are photos of one of the cards made at the end of that Facebook Live plus one that shows how I switched out Soft Suede Card Stock with a Copper Foil Sheet to die cut the deer. A very small change it is, but one that has a noticeable impact.

Metallic Foil Sheets are a great addition to your paper crafting. They add elegance and richness to all your projects. See the entire Stampin' Up! collection of Metallic Foil Sheets at https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/search/foil%20sheets.

Toile Tidings From Our House to Yours

It's never too early to start making Christmas cards. This simple yet striking card features the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper with its traditional colors, images, and patterns, and the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I love the traditional Real Red and Very Vanilla color scheme of this card as well as it's simple layout. I love it so much, I wanted to share it with you and help you recreate it or CASE it on your own. I hope you find the Toile Tidings From Our House to Yours PDF Tutorial helpful to you. 

PS. The new holiday products will be available to order September 4th.

Hello Baby!

One of the great benefits of being a part of a Stampin' Up! team is designing, making, and swapping cards. This baby card was designed by my Merry Stampers Team Member Pat Drybala for a team shoe box swap last month. What a fun card to welcome a new baby to our world! You too can make this card with the PDF Project Sheet I wrote for Pat's fabulous card. Make the card as is or change up the color for a baby boy, baby girl, and/or to coordinate with baby's nursery theme.

May Your Days Be Merry & Bright!

Stampin' Up! makes holiday paper crafting fun, easy, and exciting. Our 2019 Holiday Catalog has something for everyone from traditional holiday themes and colors to some more "out of the box" ideas and colors schemes and everything in between. Holiday Catalogs have been sent, and from what I'm hearing many people received theirs last week. If you did not receive one from me or if you do not currently shop with another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am happy to send you one. (Email me your catalog request with full name and mailing address.) The Holiday catalog goes live on September 4th! I have loads of cards and projects in the works to share with you here on my blog and on my other social media sites, in-person classes & events, Classes to Go, weekly Facebook Lives, and Stampin' Peace Newsletter.

Toile Christmas Designer Series Paper was designed with traditional scenes and prints to celebrate the holiday season. It's color scheme is simple and traditional as well, Real Red, Garden Green, and Very Vanilla.

Enjoy a free project sheet I've written for this card. It's easy to duplicate or change it up a bit and make it your own! Either way, your hand stamped Christmas cards are sure to make your family and friends' days merry & bright. For hand stamped cards are a gift from the heart.
