Painted Seasons Card Set




Hello, and welcome! I used the lovely Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper along with the Part of My Story Stamp Set to make these cards. You can get both FREE during Sale.A.Bration. Part of My Story is a Level I product that is FREE with a $50 purchase. The Painted Seasons Paper comes as a bundle with another great stamp set called by the same name. This bundle is a Level II product that is FREE with a $100 purchase. 




I embossed one of our Acetate Card Boxes with the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder. Adding a piece of Petal Pink Card Stock that was embossed with our Subtle Embossing Folder really made the card box stand out. The pretty label is a sneek peak of an upcoming punch - Storybook Label Punch. It will be available March 1, 2019. The 5/8" Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is available in the main Annual Catalog. The Just for You sentiment is from the Meant To Be Stamp Set.

Stampin' Up! Cling Stamps




Stampin' Up!'s red rubber stamps are now better than ever! The same quality rubber material you've always loved now comes with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to clear blocks, or Stamparatus plates every time you use them. Although they rolled out these new labels back in January, I had not tried them because I broke my arm early in January. I'm able to to much more now so I thought I would give them a try.

I've shown you how to assemble your stamps in the first three pictures, but here's what you need to know:

• Once you place the label on the stamp, it is adhered permanently. Attempting to remove or adjust             the label will damage the stamp's foam.
• Remove the paper backing from the label.
• Remove your selected stamp from the rubber sheet and it's paper backing.
• Line up the foam side of the stamp with the image label, then press it to adhere making sure it is          correctly positioned.
•Remove the stamp and label from the sheet. Some people keep this label to keep the stamps on, and some place them on stamp carse as shown in 3rd picture.

To remove the stamp from the block, grasp securely near the image label, and peal up slowly. To clean the labels, simply rinse under running water. Avoid alcohol-based cleaners.

After I assembled all the images from the FREE Part of my Story Stamp Set, I stamped them on Whisper White Card Stock.  Then I experimented with different punches, and framelits. They're now ready to add to my projects.

Classic Garage Spinner Card





This card is for my grandson's upcoming 7th birthday. I used products from the Classic Garage Suite. It's an interactive spinner card. I haven't made one in years. The car spins from one side of the track to the other when tilted. I cut the track with a die from another company. I used an old tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers. Click HERE to see it.


Check out the cute details on this card. The little metal wrench is from the Classic Garage Metal Elements. You get 16 pieces; 8 each of 2 designs - a wrench, and a key. I used the matching Garage Gears Thinlits Dies to cut out the Real Red Car, and the Basic Black gear pieces. The Real Red sentiment on the inside is from our Happy Birthday Thinlet Die. The stamped bolts are included in the stamp set.

Meant To Be Valentine Card





Hello, and welcome. I used some lovely products from our Meant To Be Stamp Set pluse the Be Mine Stitched Framelits for today's card. It went together fairly quickly.

First I stamped one of the heart images on a scrap piece of Whisper White using Flirty Flamingo ink. I stamped the sentiment on top of it with Lovely Lipstick ink. I cut the image out with a matching size Stitched Shapes Framelit, and mounted it on a Lovely Lipstick scallop circle from the Layering Framelits Set.  The little Flirty Flamingo heart, and scallop border are Framelits from the Be Mine Set also. I just took a scrap of the All My Love Designer Series Paper, and adhered it to my Heavy Whisper White Card Base. Last of all, I added a twine bow, and a few Basic Pearl embellishments.

January 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects




Our January 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit coordinated with products from the Stampin' Up! Animal Expedition Suite. I used a couple of the stamps from the kit along with the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to make the little treat bags pictured above. The suite includes a cute stamp set, and Thinlet Dies that cut images out of the designer paper as well. There are cute coordinating wood elements, and leaf ribbon that also match.









Our Be Mine Valentine kit came with stamps & supplies to make 24 cute Valentine Treat boxes. It was one of my favorite's. I can see myself using the cute stamps over, and over again.



Skip to the fun with our Paper Pumpkin kits. Sign up HERE before February 10, 2019 to get this month's kit. We've had several hints about what the February kit will include. Here's a glimpse:
