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.
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.
Masks aren't just for trick-or-treat and costume parties. Watch my video below for 3 ways to use the masking technique in your card making. Once you learn the techniques, they're easy to apply to your card making and paper crafting.
Whether you are a very experienced stamper or brand new to the stamping world, the Stamping Off Technique is easy to learn and makes a huge impact on your cards. Create dimension on your cards by adding lighter shades of color by stamping off. Watch my video to learn how today!
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.
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.
This Facebook Live I did recently shows some quick and easy card layouts I created using the Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper. Plus, get a tutorial on 2-step Stamping with Stampin' Up!'s perfect placement tool, the Stamparatus.

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.
Looking up at the dome covered in 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.
