Do you remember this Christmas card from December? I know, black and gold for Christmas, crazy combo, but it works. This card turned out very elegant. I have to admit, I really like the layout of this card. It has lots of layers and incorporates several punches, which means I’m using those tools I purchased. Ready to see a little magic? On the count of three, this card will turn into a Spring card! One…two…three! Ta-da! New colors, … [Read more...] about Don’t Reinvent the Wheel
I don’t know about you, but I’m loving these Five Minute Fridays! I love the challenge of coming up with something nice looking and quick at the same time. Some of you may be wondering, how I make a card in five minutes or less. I do have a couple short cuts which help. The first short cut was inspired by another Stampin Up Demonstrator (actually, I think I saw this same idea on a couple different blogs). She said she takes her cardstock to an … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
In this week’s Work It Wednesday, I’m sharing the Envelope Punch Board. The website says the Envelope Punch Board will help you create your own envelopes from our Envelope Paper, Designer Series Paper, or cardstock in up to 66 different sizes. Instructions included. The board includes a sizing chart printed right on it (measurements are in both metric and non-metric) and a scoring tool, which you can store in the Punch Board itself. The Punch … [Read more...] about Work It Wednesday – Envelope Punch Board
Just a reminder that Sale-abration is still going on! There are so many awesome things you can get for FREE with a $50 (pre-tax and shipping) order. I really love the Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack, which is free. The patterns pair so well with the Botanical Gardens paper. A couple weekends ago, I was playing around with the Botanical Builder Framlits and cut out a bunch of flowers and leaves. No seriously. A Bunch. I don't think I'll … [Read more...] about Don’t Miss Out!
Can I tell you how much I love making super quick and easy cards? Today's Five Minute card was inspired by one I found on Stampin Up's website. I can't remember the name of the person who shared her cute sample but I loved how she made flowers by combining the scribbled circle from one set with flower petals from another set. In fact, these cards are so quick to make, I've now made about a dozen of these. Plus they are flat which is perfect for … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Last week I showed you the Precision Base Plate and in that Post, I mentioned another tool called the Big Shot Die Brush. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about this tool since I mentioned it last week and said that you use it in conjunction with the Precision Base Plate. The Big Shot Die Brush was just released in the current Occasions Catalog. The price for the brush is $11 (a little less if you're a Stampin Up … [Read more...] about Work It Wednesday – Big Shot Die Brush
Recently, one of the employees at Stampin Up posted on the Stampin Up blog that she was disappointed in herself that she hadn't mailed out Christmas cards last year. And now with Facebook, the number of actual birthday cards being mailed out by people has decreased (you can read her post here). So she decided she would "bring birthdays back". In other words, she is mailing out cards to everyone that asks her for one. Her current list has passed … [Read more...] about #Imbringingbirthdaysback
Starting this Friday, I'll be featuring cards that can be made in FIVE minutes. Yep! You read that correct: five minute cards. How awesome is that! Here is the very first one: I'm serious, you can totally make this card in under five minutes. Since I already had the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper out, I decided to use that Product Suite again. Simply cut the pattern paper into a 4"x5.25" piece and adhere to the Mossy Meadow card … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
