CARD: Soar Confidently

Good morning!  (almost afternoon!)  I have a great masculine card for you today!  It was really easy to make--give it a try!



  • Crumb Cake: 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”; 2” x 4 ½” (3), Scrap for sentiment
  • Basic Black: 5 ¼” x 4”;  1” x 4” (3); scrap for sentiment
  • World of Good DSP: 5 1/8” x 3 7/8”


  1. Stamp the balloon once on each of the 2” x 4 ½” pieces of Crumb Cake. Cut out using the Ornate Borders Dies.  Place the die in a different position for each cut—so you’ll have a right side of the balloon, a center and a left side.
  2. Adhere these to the 3 pieces of Black cardstock.
  3. Stamp sentiment on scrap of Crumb Cake and punch out using the Double Oval Punch. Also punch the scalloped oval from a scrap of Basic Black.
  4. Assemble card as shown. The three Balloon panels are adhered using Black Stampin’ Dimensionsals, along with the oval piece.  The rest of the card is assembled using Stampin’ Seal.

Embossed Angel

Good morning!  Today's card features the beautiful little angel from the Angels of Peace Stamp Set:

She's embossed in Copper, then colored in with Stampin' Blends--Night of Navy and Just Jade.  Her wings are colored in with Wink of Stella--so sparkly.  Oh--she is embossed on Vellum Cardstock--such an elegant feel to it!!

I am a huge fan of the Survivor series!  It's so much fun!  I'm also a member of a "Stampin' Survivor" fb group!  At the beginning of the season, we're randomly assigned a survivor, and when our person is voted out, we send cards to all the remaining people!  It's so much fun to receive handstamped cards!!  

Here are three of the ones I've received so far this season:

From Nita:

Survivor nita

From Barbara:

Survivor barbara

from Tamra:

Aren't they great?!!   Do you watch Survivor?  Who's your favorite this season?  My assigned player is Danny--wish me luck!!

A Tropical Christmas!

Good morning!!  Isn't this adorable?  I received a card last year with the palm tree from Timeless Tropical, and just had to make it this year!  This sentiment from Best Year was a perfect match!

Nov Christmas 2

For the Palm Tree, we used the Early Espresso and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers and colored directly on the rubber.  Give it a huff, then stamp!  Fun and easy!  The ornaments are Holiday Rhinestones--the colors are so rich, perfect for Christmas tree ornaments!

Don't forget--today is the last day for the Seasonal Sale!  I think I purchased every color of cardstock!! (and maybe a few dies that I "needed"!!)


Here are the products used on today's card:

Snowflake Wishes

Good morning!!  I love snowflakes, so when designing cards for the last of the Christmas Card Classes, I just had to go back to an old favorite, Snowflake Wishes!  

Nov Christmas 3I paired it with the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Paper and the Wonderful Snowflakes!  And, if that wasn't enough, I also embossed the sentiment panel using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders!  Not sure you could fit anymore snowflakes on a card!!   It's really pretty in pink!!

Don't forget the Seasonal Sale is going on now!!  Save 10% on cardstock, 15% on ink pads, and 20% on dies!!  Great time to stock up!!


And, here are all the snowflakes products used on today's card:

6x6 One Sheet Wonder!

First of all, I have to thank Julie Davison--the diagram below was originally done by her!!  This is a really fun project--you stamp a 6x6 sheet of Vanilla Cardstock, then cut it up and make 4 cards!!

I used the Gorgeous Leaves, along with these colors:  Mossy Meadow, Bumblebee, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Night of Navy.  Here's my 6x6 sheet before cutting it:


Here is the template for cutting:


And, here are the four cards!!!

Artistically Inked Bundle

Good morning and Happy Friday!!  I have a few friends that are coming over to watch Stampin' Up!'s OnStage event with me!  These are always so much fun--we learn so much, plus we get a sneak peek at the 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog!!  Can't wait to see what beautiful goodness awaits us!!

In the meantime, please enjoy this beautifully simple card featuring the Expressions in Ink Specialty Paper:

Oct sas 3

The paper has gold dots throughout, so I continued that with the banner of gold under the sentiment, along with the Champagne Rhinestones on the flower!  I absolutely love the simplicity of this card--very elegant!

Nature's Harvest--Using Scraps!

Not sure how you feel about it, but the Harvest Meadow is one of my favorite designer papers.  And because I use it so often, especially in my classes, there are a lot of scraps left over!!  Well, today's card is a great way to use up those scraps!

Cut a piece of basic white (or any color really, as you're covering it up!).  Start on one side, and start adhering your designer paper strips.  Some are straight, some are at an angle.  Once you have the cardstock covered, trim off the excess designer paper.  Easiest to do this by turning it over, and cutting from the back side!  Easy peasy!
