Take An Adventure In The Wild

Let's take an adventure into the wild as I show and tell you what CASEing is. CASE is a term you may have heard me say often. CASE stands for Create And Share Everything. So as we all create and share our projects on social media, we are inviting others in the stamping and paper crafting community to draw inspiration from our projects. We can CASE card layouts, scrapbook layouts, color combinations, stamping techniques, and more. I would encourage all of you then to share what you make. For it is in sharing that we all grow and learn. That is what I love most about being a part of Stampin' Up! and the paper crafting community. We all have something to share, and we all have jf to learn, and together we can enjoy stamping and paper crafting for years to come. 

The Christmas card in the photo below is the one I CASEd to make my two In The Wild birthday cards pictured.Tidings of Christmas Suite & In The Wild Suite by Stampin' Up!

Click here for supply list and cutting dimensions to make the Tidings of Christmas card below.

As you can see in the photos below, I kept the same basic layout for each of the two birthday cards but changed up the Designer Series Paper, color combination, die cut label for the sentiments, and added embellishments.

A Lovely Engagement Card

In case you haven't heard...there's going to be a wedding in my family. Andrea said yes to Jon's proposal on July 10th. I'm so excited for this couple. I've never seen my daughter as happy as she has been the last year and a half since she met Jon, and I'm happy to have Jon as a son-in-law. 

Andrea & Jon's engagement

Here is the card I made for Andrea and Jon congratulating them on their engagement. I used 2 brand new products from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog launching August 3rd - the Strong of Heart Stamp Set and Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I love the silver heat embossed imaged colored with Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

How blessed I am to be Mom to Andrea and her sister Emily, and now I get to welcome Jon to our family. I'm looking forward to lots of love and laughter as we plan for Andrea and Jon's wedding. 2022 will be a BIG year with the wedding and Emily's graduation as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter. Thanks for visiting stampinpeace.com.

PS. We have a wedding date and venue! 


Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Sneak Peeks

212049622_10219719043708496_5893127899089061058_n

The Stamping with Friends Blog Hop Challenge for today was to showcase a new product from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog which launches on August 3rd. By viewing all the blogs in this blog hop, you'll get lots of Sneak Peeks of wonderful new products to come and great samples too.

My card below features 3 brand new products coming in our Holiday Mini Catalog - the Thinking Thanks & Peace Stamp Set, Silver Foil Specialty Paper, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I stamped with VersaMark Ink, added Silver Embossing Powder, then applied heat with our Heat Tool. The dove was colored with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. To me, this card shows the same simplicity and beauty as the Peace on Earth message itself.

Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.

Hybrid Embossing Folder? What's That?

Have you heard about a new category of Embossing Folder? Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Hybrid Embossing Folder. A hybrid embossing folder gives you the luxury of die cutting and embossing in one easy step. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Art in Bloom Bundle which consists of the Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. Note that the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder comes with a set of 9 dies that coordinates with both Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Stamp Set. You can use the dies separately, the embossing folder separately, or use them both together to cut and emboss flowers in just one easy step! Take a look at my demonstration to see just how amazing and versatile this new product is. While the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is the only one of its kind in the annual, you can look forward to another Hybrid Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog which launches August 3rd.

ICS July Blog Hop Fun with Designer Series Paper

75311710_10223556748213755_3554725622583513084_n

The theme of this months' ICS Blog Hop is Fun with Designer Series Paper. Right up my alley! I LOVE creating with DSP and usually grab it first when I sit down to start creating something new. I especially love that each pack of DSP gives me color combinations to use. This takes so much of the guess work out of creating. Of course, each pack of DSP has gorgeous images and patterns to go with their own unique theme. For my post for this month's Fun with Designer Series Paper blog hop, I've chosen to use the Tidings of Christmas DSP from our current Annual Catalog (pages 88-89, 133).

Tidings of Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

There are so many beautiful prints in the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper. I love the color palette as well which includes Cherry Cobbler, Evening Evergreen, Sahara Sand, Soft Succulent, and Basic White.

The Holly & Berries Dies are such a great addition to the Christmas Trimmings Dies. You could even use our Red Rhinestones in place of the Cherry Cobbler die cut berries.
