Handmade Card Featuring Lots of Heart Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Today I want to share a quick handmade card using the Lots of Heart Stamp Set.

Nothing too fancy. I used a fun fold to add some challenge, but it can easily be a standard A2 landscape card front.

Quick picture of the inside.

This month's workshop (Sat., Jan. 16 @ 11 am) we will be making this card, plus one more. If you do not have this stamp set, or the Heartfelt Stamp Set, the designs are easy to replicate with any stamp sets and punches from your personal collection.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Also, be sure to check out the Business News section below - there is lots of information and updates to share.

Handmade Card Featuring Heartfelt Stamp Set and Heart Punch Pack

Hello, my crafty friends. Hard to believe that with today's Blog post, I start my fourth year of my commitment to seriously putting my cards and ideas out in the virtual world. My wish is that I have inspired you in some way to get crafty!

This month we will focus on Valentine's Day cards and today's card is a CASE of the "beginner" stamper card (AC p. 76) featuring the Heartfelt Stamp Set and Heart Punch Pack (Bundle pricing - 10% discount - is available!).
The card in the catalog uses Petal Pink CS and Terracotta Tile Classic Ink, but I wanted to use this flower sheet from the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" DSP so I used Blushing Bride CS and Poppy Parade CS and Classic Ink.

You may also notice that the "Stepped Up" cards on page 76 are also paired with the coordinating ribbon, DSP, dies and embossing folder from the Ornate Garden Suite Collection (AC pp. 64-67). If you have this collection, great! I just wanted to demonstrate that you have the freedom to use whatever product you may have in your collection.

I will be using this stamp set/bundle and the new Lots of Heart Stamp Set at our Paper Crafting Workshop via Zoom on January 16. If you do not have either of these stamp sets, the designs will be easy to replicate with stamp sets and punches from your personal collection.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Cards Featuring So Sentimental Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Clearing off my craft table this weekend from all the holiday projects (and, boy, what a mess!), I decided to use my scraps for a couple of quick and easy cards using the So Sentimental Stamp Set and Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The card on the left uses small scraps from three different sheets of the Warm Hugs Designer Series Paper. The left panel is cut 2 1/2" x 3 7/8" and the right panel is cut 1 3/8" x 3 7/8". The bottom panel is cut 4" x 1 1/4".

The card on the right uses small scraps of Real Red Cardstock. These pieces were cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies -- the top 2 panels are #3 of the 8-die set and the bottom panel is #4 of 4-die set. In keeping with my plan to use my scraps, I was not able to work out a design for the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, but obviously that was the original plan. This alternate worked out fine, I think. (I share dimensions below in case you do not have the dies.)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring So Sentimental and Nothing's Better Than Stamp Sets

Hello, my crafty friends. The holidays are right around the corner now. I have just a couple more gift tags to make, but done with my holiday cards and decorations. Whew!! How about you?

This month's Simple Stamping Challenge from Stampin' Up! is to create a congratulations or celebration card using stamps, ink and paper. I think we can handle that! For my card today, I have paired two stamp sets together. I love the sentiments from the So Sentimental Stamp Set and the super cute, retro coffee cup from the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set.

The image stamps in the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set are "two-step" stamps - meaning that two stamps complete the image. In this particular stamp set, the one stamp is the outline image and the other stamp fills in the image. What a great stamp set inspired by Million Sales Achiever Connie Stewart. (Congrats to Connie Stewart for reaching $1M in sales!)

Can you spot the ink technique on this card? I used second generation stamping on the solid image filling the coffee cups. Even though Soft Suede is a lighter shade of brown, it still seemed too dark. The second generation stamping, or stamping off 1x, is just the right color!

Give the #SimpleStamping challenge a try!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!  I hope my project has inspired your creativity. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

December Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Warm Hugs Bundle


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the December Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Great project, Sandra! Welcome one and all.

For this month's blog hop, we are all featuring gift packaging ideas using any current Stampin' Up! catalog product from either the Annual Catalog or the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. When the Mini Catalog first came out, I chose the Warm Hugs Bundle for my gift giving this year. I have shared many projects and gift-giving ideas with this Suite over the last several months. Today, I am decorating a Mini Pizza Box. I reproduced the design on one of my recent cards for the box.

Need some ideas for gifts that will fit in your Mini Pizza Box? Try one of your large, homemade chocolate chip cookies (the interior of the box is moisture resistant), or how about a set of your 3x3 handmade cards with envelopes, or a set of matching gift tags, or even a merchant gift card. They all will fit perfectly. There are even Gold Mini Pizza Boxes. Plus, this year there are Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes! So many choices.

This gift packaging idea is super easy for you to recreate: the box top is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", the DSP is 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" (then cut it in half at 1 5/8" in order to show off the "B" side). The trim in the center is a strip of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and Vellum Cardstock, both die cut with one of the "wraps" dies. Along the sides of the box is a 3/4" strip of the DSP (cut 4 strips 3 1/2" long). If you prefer a detailed instruction sheet, please just let me know.

Quick tips for my favorite ribbon from the Mini Catalog - the Real Red Braided Linen Trim: 1) It can be curled (use the bone folder!) or 2) It can be separated and used individually (see tag, image below). So fun!

So, now it is time to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Shirley Merker.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring By The Dock Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Today I wanted to share a couple of cards using the By The Dock Stamp Set. I have had this stamp set for several months now and thought it would be fantastic to spotlight my favorite image - the row boat - in my card. I used a recent card sketch challenge to get started with my design.

This is an A2 side fold card base (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Whisper White cardstock. There are three (3) strips of Plaid Tidings DSP (cut 5 1/4" x 1", 2 @ 4 3/4" x 1") strategically looking like they are randomly placed behind the main image, but really arranged to match the card sketch. To get the rugged color for the row boat, I stamped the image on Crumb Cake Cardstock and colored using the Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and the Color Lifter. The mat is Misty Moonlight cardstock cut with the second largest scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

I also created a similar second card because these masculine cards were birthday cards sent to my brother-in-law and nephew earlier this month.

I hope these cards inspire your creativity today. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Using Tag Buffet Project Kit

Hello, my crafty friends. Just a quick post today to show off my quick and easy card using the fun product provided in the Tag Buffet Project Kit. You may recall this bonus card from my October 17th workshop.
This is simply an A2 side fold card base (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Real Red cardstock with a completed tag from the Tag Buffet Project Kit popped up with dimensionals. Whew! That was simple. I knew you could do it! Of course you could go all out with some Red Rhinestone gems or any favorite embellishment.

Accompanying my card today is a couple of gift tags using some of the scraps from cards made with the Plaid Tidings DSP. Hope these provide you with more ideas for your holiday gift tags.

Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring Warm Hugs Stamp Set and Dies v2

Hello, my crafty friends. So, how is your holiday card making going? I have been working on them for the last month now off and on. Still several cards to make before I have completed my "list." Here is another card using the Warm Hugs Bundle to coordinate with my gift cards holders.
Warm Hugs Holiday Card

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Mossy Meadow cardstock. The mat is two separate sheets from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP (top cut 4" x 2 1/4", bottom cut 4" x 3"). The Pear Pizzazz strip is cut using one of the decorative scalloped dies for the coffee cup "sleeve" in the Warm Wraps Dies. It is decorated with alternating Red Rhinestone gems and die cut candy canes. The circle embellishment build is also created with stamps and dies from this bundle. Love the Real Red Braided Linen Trim (and it curls too!!) for the small bow.

The sentiment is stamped on a strip of Whisper White Cardstock flagged using the Banners Pick a Punch. 

I created a collection of gift-giving projects with the Warm Hugs Bundle. Instructions on requesting a pdf of the instructions is in the business section below my sign off.

Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

November Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the November Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Carol Payne's blog. Welcome one and all.

For this month's blog hop, we are all featuring holiday-themed cards and projects using any current Stampin' Up! catalog product. I selected the Merry Moose Bundle for my card.

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Real Red cardstock. The mat build is a sheet from the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP (cut 3" x 5") and a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock (cut 2 1/4" x 4"). The sentiment is stamped on a 1/2" strip of Whisper White flagged using the Banners Pick a Punch. You could hand cut the flag, but why would you when the punch makes it so-o-o easy.

SIDE NOTE: I will be making lots of holiday cards using the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (MC pp. 56-57). I might have went a little overboard when select DSP was on sale last month!

Due to the restrictions on get togethers, my paper crafting groups have been meeting online via Zoom to finish our holiday cards, gifts and projects. We voted on three different stamp sets and bundles so I could focus on slightly more simple designs that would carry across all of our stamping selections and could easily be replicated with their own supplies from their craft stash. If you need measurements, just let me know. I think our pick, Merry Moose Bundle, and returning fave from last year, has won my heart.

Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!
