Awesome Otters Birthday Card

For this week's Free Friday Download, I decided to create a fun slimline card using 2 of my favorite Sale-A-Bration products together - the Awesome Otters Stamp Set and Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. And if I do so say myself, this card is both awesome and marvelous! It's fun. It's bright. It's cheerful. Surely it will be a hit with the recipient.

Each of these products can be yours with a $50 Stampin' Up! order or get them both with a $100 order. I also introduced the Cloud Punch and Classic Matte Dots from our new Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Driving By Stamp  Set and Sunshine  & Rainbows  - Mary Knabe

I had fun using the Paper Piecing Technique for the vehicles in the Drive By Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. I stamped each of the vehicles in Black Momento Ink on Basic White card stock. I then colored the wheels, "chrome", and windows with Stampin' Blends. Next I stamped the vehicles again in Black Momento Ink but this time on various sheets of the Sunshine & Rainbows 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, also from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. I then used Paper Snips to cut out the body of each vehicle and adhered them to the vehicles stamped on the white card stock. Lastly, I cut out each completed vehicle and adhered them to the card.

Daffodil Afternoon Gift Card Holder & More

It was a cold, wintery day in central Ohio on Friday, January 7th, but I was able to bring some sunshine to the day when I chose to use the Daffodil Afternoon Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper to feature in my projects. I love that everyone has the opportunity to earn this beautiful Designer Series Paper Free. Yep, it's true. Place a $50 order and choose Daffodil Afternoon DSP or one of several other products from our Sale-A-Bration Brochure. AND, did you know that the Daffodil Afternoon DSP coordinates with our new Daffodil Daydream Bundle in the new Mini Catalog? I love Stampin' Up!'s coordination of products, colors, and themes. It makes creating extra fun and easy!

In this video replay of Friday's Facebook Live, I demonstrate how to make a Gift Card Holder using a 3" x 12" strip of Daffodil Daydream DSP. It's a easy layout to replicate on your own and is great for birthdays, graduations, weddings, and so much more. I'll also show you cutting dimensions and card ideas for another sheet of the pretty Daffodil Daydreams DSP to help you make a nice assortment of Daffodil Afternoon cards including some slimline cards.

Flowing Flowers Cards

Happy New Year, Stampin' Peace Friends! 

With the holidays behind us, it's time to start thinking about writing our Thank You Notes. I'm sharing what I'm using as my birthday and Christmas thank you notes. They feature the brand new Flowing Flowers Stamp Set and Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. I love using our Notecards & Envelopes of quick and easy thank you cards or when I need to make several of other kinds of cards. They're very affordable at just $7 for 20 pre-cut and scored note cards and envelopes in either Basic White or Very Vanilla. The folded size is 3 1/2" x 5", and yes, they are mailable.

This Video Replay of my December 27th Facebook Live includes a demonstration of the Simple Stamping I used to make all these cards. Remember, Simple Stamping means we use stamps, ink, and paper only. It's fun and easy but still allows you to make pretty cards. So watch now then do some Simple Stamping cards of your own.

I chose to use Merry Merlot ink on these cards, but so many of our colors look amazing on the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. FYI...you'll want to use some Grid Paper or other scrap paper as you will be stamping off the edge of the note cards.
