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.

Follow Your Art...It's good for you...body, mind, and soul!

This Follow Your Art card I received in a demonstrator card swap was created Stampin' Up! demonstrator Lynn Feldkamp. It's filled with fun elements including many things I use in my Stampin' Up! business regularly...ribbons, baker's twine, buttons, and of course, stamps, ink, and paper. The colors are bright and cheery. Want to make this card too? Great because I've made it easy for you to do so with my free PDF Project Sheet.

Mosaic Tiles in Rome & Mosaic Mood Cards

Mosaic Tile Designs have been around for ages. Andrea and I saw several mosaic works of art in Rome, our favorite being the inside of the dome in St. Peter's Basilica. I've never seen something so beautiful made of mosaic tiles, very tiny mosaic tiles of so many different colors and finishes. I was in awe. These photos don't do it justice, but the art in the entire inside of the dome is all mosaic tiles.

Stampin' Up! has gotten in on the mosaic style of arts and crafts with its Mosaic Mood Suite. I recently did a Facebook Live featuring the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and several coordinating products. I hope you are inspired by my demonstrations and hope you'll join me in future Facebook Lives for more creative inspiration.

A Good Man with Seaside Spray

Here's another card featuring A Good Man stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I received this card created by Melissa Thomas in a recent demonstrator card swap. It's fresh and fun and makes me think SUMMER! What a perfect card for a man's summer birthday, to say thank you for being a hard worker, retirement, and more. I know you all probably have ideas of your own too.

How about a free PDF Project Sheet for you to make this card? Yes? Okay, you got it!

We are Sailing Home!

After visiting Rome and then enjoying the 2019 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Cruise to the Greek Isles, we are sailing back to Rome and will be heading home to Ohio tomorrow. What an adventure this trip was! I'm grateful Andrea and I could spend a couple extra days vacationing as Andrea had never been to Rome. I'm grateful to Stampin' Up! for the many opportunities I am given to work hard at doing what I love, to earn free products, to meet new people and build countless friendships, and to earn such wonderful trips. I am very grateful to my stamping family, customers and team members alike, who encourage and motivate me everyday to keep learning and growing and supporting me on my Stampin' Up! journey and life's ventures. I could not accomplish all of this without you. Special thanks to my daughters Andrea and Emily whose own drive and determination and love of life drive me to be the best me I can be...which includes living in the moment while going after my dreams. 

As Andrea and I sail the big sea and then fly home, I hope you are inspired to create and share with another card I created. The Sailing Home Suite is so very popular. It makes great cards for everyone who loves life on the water and it's great for making masculine cards too. 

The card reminds me of the many sailboats I see on the Hoover Reservoir in the Westerville suburb of Columbus, Ohio, where I live. 

I hope you'll use and enjoy this downloadable PDF to create fun sailing cards!
