Card: Merry Patterns Masculine Birthday

Hello!

Have you seen the Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set: Merry Patterns?
This stamp set is FREE for Hosts when their Workshop sales reach $300 or more, or FREE with a qualifying order of $300 or more!



I Love this set!  With some "thinking outside the stamp box", you can use the images in this set year-round!  Not just for the Christmas Holiday!



The Stampin' Up! Artisan Team recently hosted a blog hop featuring this set.  This card is my "spin" on one of the cards in the hop.  I Love how I could turn a Holiday card into a gorgeous Birthday card, with just a few changes!

Happy Stamping!

Fast Fuse Offer Causes Back-Orders and Suspension of Offer

This just in...
Due to the overwhelming response to the Buy 1 Fast Fuse/ Get 2 Refills Free Offer, the offer has been suspended.  Below is the message I have just received from Stampin' Up!  If any further announcements or updates are made, I will post them here.

Happy Stamping!
Mary

As part of our planned World Card Making Day offer October 1-10, we offered two free Fast Fuse Refills with every purchase of a Fast Fuse Adhesive. This offer was much more popular than we anticipated, and Fast Fuse has since gone on backorder. Because of the costliness of backorders, after October 5 at 8:00 AM (MT), we will no longer be offering this promotion in North America. Current orders on backorder will be filled shortly.
 
To help make it up to you and your customers, we will bring back the same offer on Fast Fuse for five days within the next few months, after we’re confident we have sufficient Fast Fuse in stock (this five-day offer will be in North America only). In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding!



Card: Quilted Mittens

Hello!

I'm so In Love with these mittens!!! They bring me back to winters in New England! 

I recently posted these cards, and they were a big hit!  So Cute!

Even better, you can craft them as pot holders ;)  They make super cute tags for attaching to your Holiday or Birthday baked goods!  


Or even for a bundle of recipe cards for a Bridal Shower... now my brain is spinning because they also would be super cute tags to attach to Bridal Shower/Wedding gifts of Kitchen Ware!  There we go!  My creative juices are really flowing now! 

To create this card yourself, I have a full supply list for you below!  
Or, contact me for a free PDF step-by-step tutorial.

As always, if you have any questions or need assistance,
I'm here to help!

Happy Stamping!

Card: Painted Harvest Meets Lovely As A Tree

Hello!

Do you struggle with "Masculine" cards?
If you do, you will love this card!
This card is perfect for any occasion!

I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest but this version is more "Me".  

I am in love with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Papers and this layout highlights the acorn pattern perfectly!  


And, it only required a 1-1/4" strip!  Think of how many cards you can get out of a 12x12 piece of DSP!  You can even stock up this month during our Buy 3/Get 1 Free DSP Sale!

The oak branch image from our classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set, plays so well with this pattern and the acorn image from the Painted Harvest stamp set

To create this card yourself, I have a full supply list for you below!
Need to stock up on DSP:  Follow the links to my Online Store - Just don't forget your Free pack!

Don't Miss Out: 2 Months of Coordinating Paper Pumpkin Kits are coming our way!


Hello,

By now, I'm sure you have heard of the monthly creativity kit called Paper Pumpkin.
Now that I am settled at one address, I have renewed my membership and I'm so glad I did!  The September Kit was right up my Autumn Loving alley!  Can we say "Leaves", LOL.

To make me even more excited, Stampin' Up! announced that the October and November kits are going to coordinate with each other, making our upcoming Holiday projects super quick and easy to create - well in advance of the busy holiday season!

If you are new to Paper Pumpkin, now is a great time to try it out!  If you are a past Paper Pumpkin subscriber, this is a great time to come back!  And, if you are an existing Paper Pumpkin subscriber, now is a great time to suggest it to your friends and plan some Paper Pumpkin parties!  Gather your friends and play with your kits together - create some "outside the box" projects as you discover all of the possibilities as a group!  How much fun could that be?!

Don't forget, you must sign up by October 10th to receive the October kit and by November 10th to receive the November kit.  You can cancel or suspend Paper Pumpkin any time so why not try it out, if you haven't already?  You can even purchase pre-paid subscriptions in my store.  I have the links posted for you below.  Paper Pumpkin subscriptions also make great gifts for you crafty friends and family... just a thought :)

To see some past Paper Pumpkin kits, just pop over to Pinterest and type Paper Pumpkin in the search bar.  You'll be amazed at how far a Paper Pumpkin kit can go!

Join the fun here!

Happy Stamping!

Card: Watercolor Christmas Welcomes Baby Boy


Hello!

A few day's back, I showed you my Baby Girl card (see it here) featuring the Watercolor Christmas stamp set and Smitten Mittens Bundle, which both made their debut in the Holiday Catalog.

Today, I'm sharing my Baby Boy version.  I incorporated the Labeler Alphabet stamp set this time.  I will say, however, that I lined up all of my individual letters on one block but, I don't like how far apart the letters appear.  


Therefore, I would suggest stamping your letters individually.  A little more cumbersome but, the results would probably be worth it.  

If you would like to create this card yourself, I have links to the supplies I used posted below.
If you have any questions, give me a shout!  I'm happy to help!

Happy Stamping!

Super Simple Card With The Quilted Christmas Suite

Hello,

Today I am sharing a super simple card, created with the coordinating products found in the Quilted Christmas Suite.  I Love this whole collection!  Not only are the colors bright and cheery, they are a mix of traditional and modern.  The patterns in the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Papers are a delightful mix of patterns that will extend far beyond the Holiday season!

And don't get me started on the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies and Quilt Top Embossing Folder!   These dies are so addicting!  Once you start building your quilts, you won't be able to stop!  The possibilities are endless!  Save 10% when you purchase them together in a bundle!

This card takes a more traditional path.  I cut one of the pre-printed quilt patterns, from the designer series papers, with it's coordinating die.  There are 4 sheets of this paper - in two color combinations, each with 4 "stars"/sheet - so I can make 32 of this card design alone!  Is that incredible or what?!  

And check out that yummy ribbon!  I'm going to order a stack of spools!  I can see using this ribbon for far more than Holiday cards!  

If you would like to create this card for yourself, I have the supply list posted below.  If you have any questions, regarding my project or any of the products, I'm here to help!

Happy Stamping!

Card: Painted Harvest Meets Paper Pumpkin


Hello!

Today I am sharing a stunning little 3"x3" card that I created with my September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit and the Painted Harvest stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

I had the sunflower panel leftover from our recent card class and the sentiment stamp from my new Paper Pumpkin kit fit the blank space perfectly!!!  



This message came at a perfect time for me!  Just when I needed to hear it!  It has become my new Mantra and I keep this little card on my desk as a reminder.  I just love it!

If you are not a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can find out all about it Here.

I just renewed my subscription and I can't wait to see what will arrive in these gorgeous boxes of fun in the coming months!  For a little video teaser, click the image below ;)


Each kit contains everything you need to create that month's projects!  You may need paper snips (for cutting ribbons or twines) but even the adhesives are included!  You even get a little ink spot (or 2 or more, depending on the month's projects) so even the inks are included!!!  The Paper Pumpkin stamp sets are exclusive to Paper Pumpkin so you definitely don't want to miss those!  If you have any questions about Paper Pumpkin, let me know!  I'm happy to fill you in on all of the awesomeness :)

If you have the September kit, and would like to create this card, or do not have the kit but would like to swap out an alternative greeting, I have my supply list for you below.

Card: Watercolor Christmas Welcomes a Baby Girl


Hello,

I'm excited to share this cute card with you today!

It is a completely different "spin" on a Christmas card we created at my recent card class.


The Watercolor Christmas stamp set made it's debut in the Holiday Catalog and I've taken it beyond the holiday season with this cute baby card!

I just love when I can stretch my Holiday stamp sets beyond their intended season, don't you?
Yay!

Introducing: Smitten Mittens

Hello!

OMGosh!  Have you seen the Smitten Mittens Bundle on page 38 of the new Holiday Catalog???

I fell in love with it the moment I saw it!  That baby went into my pre-order so fast, it was a blur!


And it did not disappoint me!

This pair of cards were the first ones I created using this bundle.  Aren't the mittens just the sweetest?!  I strung them together with a bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection.  Don't they remind you of the mittens your Mama would knit you when you were a kid?  The ones with the long string that went inside your jacket so you wouldn't lose your mittens!  Am I dating myself?

I even incorporated the new Winter Wonder TIEF (page 37).  I think it added just enough of that wintery feel!  One thing I changed, after taking the photos, was to add a little pearl to the center of each mitten.  I knew I wanted them to finish off my mittens - I just could not find my pearls in this camper!  I looked everywhere!  Of course, I found where I had stashed them - after I had photographed my cards :(  I'll be back with another Mittens project though so I will show you how the pearls just made these mittens perfect!  

I hope you are Smitten with these Mittens too!
This wonderful bundle is now available for purchase in my Online Store.
I have provided the links, for all of the products I used to create my cards, for you below.

As always, if you have any questions, I'm here to help!

Happy Stamping!
