First, let me apologize for my oopsie on Wednesday. I set my posts to automatically go live in the am. I goofed and set it for pm. I fixed it as soon as I realized it hadn't posted. Sorry! Happy Friday! This is it for the Soft Seedlings for now. I wanted to share one more version in a different color for this card. For this card, I lightly inked it in the early espresso color so you can see more of the veins in the leaves. This card … [Read more...] about Last of the Seedlings
I'm back with Soft Seedlings today. As I was getting out my supplies, I couldn't decide which colors to use, so I used both yellow and green. Making this card in the two different colors gives each one a totally different feel. The yellow card looks more like Fall colors to me. And the green would be more appropriate for Spring. What do you think about the two colors? Which one do you like better? Comment below! Soft … [Read more...] about This or That?
Well, it sure doesn't feel like Fall weather here in SoCal, but it is officially Fall now. Today's card is inspired by one I saw that one of the Stampin Up employees had made. I used slightly different colors and changed the layout a little bit. For the leaves, I inked them in Crushed Curry, then I used a sponge to add a bit of Cajun Craze around the edges and then Mossy Meadow for the stems. I love the multicolor of the leaves. You can … [Read more...] about Soft Seedlings
If you're like me, you might have taken advantage of one of the Sale-abration items last month, the Kraft Gift Boxes. These boxes were one of the items you could get free with a purchase. Today I used the box to make a Halloween treat. This box is a great size to tuck a nice treat in, like a cookie or a brownie, or small gift. The window in the box gives a nice peak at whatever may be inside. Don't forget to get out those items you … [Read more...] about Bewitching Box

Today is the last day to take advantage of the Perfect Partners Promo to get these matching die sets to coordinate with the stamp sets. I jumped on the opportunity to get the matching dies for the Yeti. But the Piggie dies are just as cute. I might have to add those to my cart. I've seen lots of ideas online using the Apple Blossoms and Fresh Cut Stems too. Just remember this is your last chance to get the coordinating die sets. … [Read more...] about Last Day!
If you're looking for a quick treat holder that you can make lots of in a short amount of time, this is it. The Matchbook treat! This treat looks like an old fashioned matchbook. This is what the matchbook looks like open. You can see the candy is stapled inside. This keeps it from falling out of the matchbook. The dimensions for the black card stock is 2.75 x 7.75". I used an 8.5 x 11" sheet of card stock and cut the 8.5" side down to … [Read more...] about Matchbook Treat
Two weeks ago, I attended Stampin Up's BackStage event for leaders. At the event, we had a "Sweets and Swaps" party. Swaps are cards that we make to trade with other Demonstrators. Most people make things that can be easily replicated to share with others. There are lots of little gift type items too, like treat boxes for candy. These are the two swaps that I took with me. I can't decide if I like the green or the rust color better. … [Read more...] about Last of the Pumpkins.. For Now
