Here’s What I Made

Just Stamp | Blessings Sampler

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day most of us sit down and express our gratitude for all the blessings in our lives. Thank goodness there’s a special day on the calendar for it, because sometimes we get caught up in the whirlwind of day-to-day life.

I’m sharing my twist on Sampler Framed Art with a Thanksgiving Sampler. During Stampin’ Up!’s recent convention, I fell for the beautiful sampler displays created by talented demonstrators. I decided to give it a try, adding some family photos. Now I have either a Framed Art Sampler of a scrapbook page.

Gratitude Card to Observe National Gratitude Month

By | October 30, 2017

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings

Here’s What I Made

Today’s project can be a holiday card OR it can be the Go-To card for the other 364 days of the year. This is my first gratitude card to observe National Gratitude Month that begins in two days and of course culminates the third Thursday of the month with the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

Messages to express gratitude and kind thoughts plus pretty elements of nature make Count My Blessings from Stampin Up!’s Holiday Catalog the perfect set for November. 

The elegant Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate as a screen between gold embossed/watercolored foliage and the graceful sentiment make this simple design fancy.

Home for Halloween Card with Hometown Greeting Edgelit Dies

Just Stamp | Home for Halloween

Here’s What I Made

The Hearts Come Home Bundle from Stampin Up!’s Holiday Catalog brings home hearts for Halloween, too! Of course, it was designed for festive winter scenes but the set can also create scenes for the October 31 holiday, and other upcoming special days.

By choosing a Halloween color palette and pairing die cuts from other framelit sets, the Hometown Greetings Edgelits  create a spooky, haunted village with eery bats and bare trees.

What?! You don’t send Halloween cards? Think of Halloween as another opportunity to contact friends and family with a thoughtful greeting.

Stampin’ Up! Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

By | October 8, 2017

Hello and welcome to the Second Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop.

For many of us, breast cancer has touched our lives in some shape or form. I’ve witnessed my mother successfully battle breast cancer, and I witness my dear friend at the American Cancer Society persistently working to bring people together to fund research, and make sure free information and support is available for those enduring the challenge.

Here’s What I Made

 

Stampin Up! Ribbon of Courage Close-up

 

The simple pink ribbon speaks volumes to express support for individuals with breast cancer. Stampin Up!’s 9-piece Ribbon of Courage stamp set includes the widely recognized ribbon in two sizes, hearts and flowers with pretty details, and encouraging words. It’s all I needed to create a simple and pretty greeting card to convey warm thoughts.

Repeatedly stamping the Sending Love and Hugs sentiment in Blushing Bride created a clean background for a Blushing Bride Stitched Circle. Mini and jumbo detailed hearts were heat embossed with gold powder and colored using Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Powder Pink and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin Write Markers.

A Foil Snowflake, Gold Metallic Thread, and Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape add finishing touches to the simple layout.
