Home for Halloween Card with Hometown Greeting Edgelit Dies

By | October 15, 2017

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.

A Quilted Background for Smitten Mittens Christmas Card

By | October 3, 2017

Stampin Up! Smitten Mittens On Quilt

Here’s What I Made

Smitten Mittens on their own would make an adorbs Christmas card with a heartfelt holiday greeting. By adding a beautiful quilted background crafted with the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the red striped patterned paper in the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, the charm swells. To achieve the puffy, padded effect a quilt takes on after washing, I gently sanded the embossed patterned paper to reveal and enhance the stitching. This technique is featured on page 4 of the Holiday Catalog. Take a look at the Christmas Peace card on the spool caddy. So simply. So festive.

Center Step Fancy Fold Hello Fall Card with Coffee Cafe

Here’s What I Made

The Center Step Fancy Fold template is a unique presentation for a greeting card. The tall center panel creates a splendid stage for the star of a card—in this case the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte drink. The Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gives the card base a lovely rustic feel that’s perfect for the season.

Good news! The Center Step Fancy Fold template is easy. Watch the video tutorial for a demonstration on how to score and cut the card base, plus a quick tip on how to add rich color to the deep pinewood plank impressions.
