Tidings & Trimmings

Happy Saturday!  Here's a fun card that uses a hodgepodge of product--the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set, Tidings of Christmas AND Heartwarming Hugs DSP, the Christmas Tree Dies and for sparkle, the Wonderful Gems!  Oh, and don't forget the beautiful Gold Fine Art Ribbon!  With that list, you'd expect some super over-the-top card, huh?  Nope, just this simple beauty!

Nov Christmas 1

When I design cards for my classes, I try to keep them "flat", so that they can be mailed easily.  After all, that is the point! haha!!  So, while a bow would've looked pretty, it just doesn't go through the mail very well.

What do you think?

Here is the official list of products--if you see something you like, just click on it, and you'll be taken to my online store!  I really appreciate all your orders and support!  (Click HERE to see how I show that appreciation!)

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!!

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!  

Here are the wonderful things used today:

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!  

Oct sas 5

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!

Simple Masculine Birthday!

Why are masculine cards so hard for us to make?  It is probably the most requested card at my classes--because we always need them!  So, here's a simple one we made at my Stamp-a-Stack last weekend:
