Stitched Shapes with Stampin’ Up! Snow Place

Stitched Shapes Framelits come in squares, circles and ovals. On this card you can see a rectangle. Read more to find out how to create this shape!

Fancy Frost Designer Series paper makes an appearance on this card.  You can see how I used this versatile paper without adding ink in THIS POST.  To create the snowy blue I used lots of Marina Mist ink and just a little Dapper Denim.  Both colors found their way to the paper using a Sponge Brayer.

The Snow Place stamp set is one of those great sets that has both inside and outside greeting.  Here is a look at how I decorated the inside:

Now for the big reveal – the rectangle greeting on the front of the card.  First I stamped

Simple DIY Christmas Card

This simple DIY Christmas card could easily be dressed up with some embellishments, but I like the clean look as it’s shown:

For this card you can use the Cherry Cobbler ink pad to stamp the “at” and “Christmas”.  To color the holly berries first stamp the whole thing in Emerald Envy ink and then color over the green with a Cherry Cobbler marker.  I found the fine tip gave the most control to keep the cherries round and small.

“Why do you add the quarter sheet on top of the card?”  I hear this a lot.  Two reasons come to mind.  First this way you can add dimensionals under the quarter sheet to draw attention to the front layer of the card.  Second, if you happen to mis-stamp (and we all can do that) then you only have to toss a quarter

Is Your Card Stash Up-to-Date?

December is a great month to make sure to get your card stash up-to-date. I’m sure you’re making lots of lists this month. Even if you just take an inventory and get a list of card you need to stamp you’ll be way ahead when you start paper crafting in the New Year.

card stash up-to-date

My stash of sympathy cards dwindled during the fall. When I checked my colors that had extra layers I found this Mint Macaron and a bunch of Very Vanilla cards. This design came together quick and now I have another seven in the file.

 

This was one of those Saturday football cards. The kind you can put together while watching something you enjoy on TV. After all the layers were cut and embossed this is the order I put it together:

  1. Stamp the “With Sympathy” in Mint Macaron

Thankful for a Great Group to Stamp With

Today I am thankful for a great group of customers and demonstrators to stamp with.  Paper crafting is my hobby and sharing it is my passion.

thanks stamping

December 1st is a special day.  It’s the first day of their December sale, the first day demonstrators can order from the new catalogs and the first day of the month filled with reflection and planning for next year.  Let’s tackle each of these together!

Simple Thank You DIY Greeting Card

A simple thank you note still goes a long way.  It’s so fun to get a card in the mail – and that doesn’t happen often enough these days.  If you are a customer who places an order of any size or belongs to Paper Pumpkin you will receive a hand stamped thank you card from me each month.  The twist on these cards is that I usually write my little note on a post-it inside so you can pass the card on when you need to send a quick thank you.
simple thank you

 

Did you notice the nicely embossed white card stock?  I didn’t lift a finger except to use my Stampin’ Trimmer – love the Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper!  You can add the paper as is or use ink over to make it pop

Suite Seasons Triple Play DIY Holiday Cards

Today I’m sharing my Suite Seasons triple play cards from our recent Facebook workshop.  The Suite Seasons stamp set is one of my go-to stamp sets this season. At our last Facebook Workshop I shared three card versions for three designs. The pictures below show my versions for the Suite Season design.

The first picture shows the easiest version of this card.  This version is also the most simple to mass produce.

This next version takes it up a step, but would still be very easy to mass produce.
