Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the June 2022 Sending Good Thoughts Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kit includes contents to make 9 cards (3 each of 3 designs) with a nautical theme - even a message in a bottle. These cards are "shore" to please and delight anyone who receives one.

Stylish Sketches Simple Stamping

In today's post, I'm sharing one of my favorite new, and often overlooked, new products of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog - the Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 precut and scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards, 20 envelopes, plus a sturdy box to store your finished cards or to give them as a gift. All this for just $10.00. It's a great value both in what you get for the price and for the convenience allowing you to get off to a quick start in your card making. I've paired these Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes with the Stylish Sketches Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set to make some quick and easy, yet fabulous, cards. I used the wonderful Watercolor Pencils to color the sketched images of the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set. And did you know the Stylish Sketches Stamp Set can be yours FREE when you place a $50 Stampin' Up! order? Yes, it's true! But don't wait too long.

Heat Embossing with Amazing Phrasing

What a fun and versatile stamp set Amazing Phrasing Stamp Set is, and best of all, I got it FREE with a $100 order. You can too when you place a Stampin' Up! order during one of our biggest annual promotions - Sale-A-Bration happening now through August 31st. You'll love mixing and matching all the words and phrases. In the following video replay of my July 18th Facebook Live, I feature this Amazing Phrasing Stamp Set to create some fun cards with Heat Embossing and the Emboss Resist Technique. So get ready, get set, watch, then start creating some cards of your own.

Be sure to take note of one of our newest tools, the Embossing Additions Tool Kit, as well as the Stamparatus, one of my all time favorite stamping tools.

***** This video lacks audio, but am keeping it in the post so that you can at least follow my steps visually. I am working with Apple Mac and iMovie to fix it. I will reload corrected video as soon as it is available. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Easy-to-make Envelopes for Slimline Cards

I've demonstrated making Slimline Cards many times in the past. My most recent Slimline Cards feature the Hippest Hippos Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and coordinating Hippest Hippos as shown in the photo below. (If you missed this, you can see the video demonstration and blog post with this link: https://bit.ly/3aNWpn0.

I'm often asked what kind of envelopes do I mail my Slimline Cards in. These cards fit in a standard business or letter size envelope or in a Slimline Envelope from Stampin' Up! or you can make your own with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper that coordinates with your Slimline Card. Below is a video demonstration followed by a template and cutting and scoring dimensions.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Start with 8 1/2" x 11" card stock or DSP.
  • With card stock in horizontal position, score at 2 1/2" on one side and 2" on the opposite side.
  • Turn card stock to vertical position, score at 3/4" on one end and 1 1/4" on opposite end.
  • Cut away corners as shown. (TIP:  Cut corners at angles so envelope folds more easily.)
  • Fold on score lines.
  • Adhere long sides.
  • Adhere small end flap.

Hippest Hippos in town!

When I first saw the Hippest Hippos Stamp Set and coordinating Hippo Dies in the July - August Sale-A-Bration  Brochure, I just knew I had to have them. What I didn't know, though, was just how much fun I would have with them. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I'll show you how to color the hippos and then make a card that is "cuteness overload". ***Please note that this video isn't quite up to my usual. Facebook Live was giving me fits and not letting see my usual screen with the buttons to manage the FB Live. (Facebook has been making LOTS of updates and changes that I was still trying to learn and navigate.) So...you'll see things a bit backwards...like me being left-handed which I'm not. ;)  But, with a little patience and understanding from my viewers, I powered through, and it ended up not being so bad. AND I think I have the new FB changes figured out for my next Facebook Live.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side
  • Basic White card stock = 8 1/8" x 3 1/8" (cut 2)
  • DSP = 8" x 3"
  • DSP or card stock for grass = 3" x 1", tear along one long side

6" x 6" OSW with Happy Forest Friends DSP

I've got a wonderful 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder and 4 great cards to show you in this post. I cut a 6" x 6" piece of DSP from a 12" x 12" sheet in the Happy Forest Friends DSP pack. You'll see that this particular DSP is very versatile and works well for so many occasions. Each of the 4 cards made with this One Sheet Wonder is different and each has been embellished differently. I hope you love this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder and my Happy Forest Friends cards as much as I do. I also hope that you will make a set of cards of your own using this fabulous One Sheet Wonder. To make even more cards, consider cutting an entire 12" x 12" sheet of DSP into four 6" squares and then following cutting instructions for this One Sheet Wonder. You'll end up with 16 cards total. You make the 4 different card designs or pick your favorites and cut accordingly. Either way, you'll have a nice stash of cards when you're finished.

Cut 6" x 6" DSP as follows:

  • Cut in half both directions to get four 3" squares.
  • Leave 1 square uncut.
  • Cut 2nd square at 1" intervals for three 1" x 3" strips.
  • Cut 3rd square in half in both directions to get four 1 1/2" squares
  • Cut 4th square in half diagonally.
