Stampin' Up: Remarkable You (Thinking of You card)

Happy Halloween to everyone. Hope you have a spooktacular day.

Today's post is a Thinking of You card that uses almost all of the 2015-2017 In-Colors with the exception of Tip Top Taupe. I thought it was time to restock my on-hand stash of cards and this is what I came up with. A little card stock, some Designer Series Paper, add some marker coloring and of course some pearls and see what you get. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Here's the Pillow Box I shared earlier:

Embellished Ornaments and A Little Something

Hello and welcome to today's post. I've been pretty busy with my full time job this past week and this week is looking even more harrowing, but I wanted to share with you a card I created. It's a Christmas themed card but I think it can also be used for every day card sending by changing up the colors. The card has some gold, some vellum and some heat embossing on it. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Using my stash- Birthday Bash birthday card

So I saw a post in my newsfeed from a fellow demonstrator, Terry Walker, who showed a card using up her stash and thought, "What a great way to use up some of my old/retired papers". I used her type of layout but made it my own with the stamp sets and papers I chose. The Designer Series Papper I used is called Birthday Bash and the card stock is also retired but a nice weight so I still use it when possible.

I used the Four You stamp set (retired) for the sentiment because it was the perfect size to fit on the strip of Tangelo Twist card stock in the center of the card. The image was stamped using the Ronald Mcdonald House stamp set, Sprinkles of Life. There was some fussy cutting involved but it was fairly easy with the bottom of the cupcake. The cupcake topper was punched using the Tree Builder Punch from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

Stampin' Up: Happy Haunting Halloween card

Hello and welcome to today's post for the Halloween series. Today I have created a very CAS (Clean and Simple) card using Stampin' Up's September Paper Pumpkin stamp set. The Designer Series Paper is great for creating this card because all of the papers coordinate. The card base is Old Olive and the card stock panels are Tangelo Twist. The buttons used on this card are from a retired In Color Accessory Pack but any buttons would do. Take a look at the project below, as well as the photo video that shows the steps for putting this card together, and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up: Cherry on Top- Birthday card

Happy Sunday everyone. I have a project that highlights the papers and card stock instead of just the stamping. The Designer Series paper pack is Cherry on Top which is very bright and colorful and the matching card stocks are Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, and Pool Party. I used a sketch to create this card from a cardmaking book by Jeanette R Lynton called Wishes: fall in love with cardmaking and found it to be a great resource. Take a look at the project and video below and let me know what you think.
