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.

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.

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

Decorative Masks. We've had several collections of them over time. I love them for creating backgrounds on cards and for decorating plain gift bags. Have you ever tried using them on your projects? They're fun! They function like stencils and are so easy to use with our Sponge Daubers and Blending Brushes. In this Video Replay of a recent Facebook Live, I introduce you to a new type of Decorative Mask coming in our January - June Mini Catalog which goes live on January 4th. I have a feeling after seeing this demonstration, you are going to want to add this new product to your wish list. What's different about these? These are designed for layering! Watch now as I demonstrate making 2 cards with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks then add them to your wish list. I think you're going to love them! With all our Stampin' Up! colors, the possibilities are endless.

Stack & Shuffle Technique

Here's a fun technique that allows you to showcase your favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and make a set of 4 cards quickly and easily. You're going to love it, so start pulling out your favorite DSP so you can craft along with me in this video.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Basic White card stock for inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • 4 different but coordinating pieces of DSP = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Stack the 4 pieces of DSP. With stack in vertical position, cut at 2 3/4". Turn stack of wide strips to horizontal position, and cut at 3". Turn stack of narrow strips to horizontal position, and cut at 2".
  • Shuffle DSP stacks as shown in video

 

My sample cards shown below feature the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper (AC pg. 132). Do you notice any new products used on these cards? You may have noticed a new sentiment which is from the Special Moments Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set which you can get FREE with a $100 purchase during our Sale-A-Bration Promotion January 4th - February 28th. The Brushed Brass Butterflies can be purchased from the January - June Mini Catalog also available beginning January 4th.

I sure hope that during this busy holiday season you are finding time to slow down, step back, and just enjoy the moments with the people around you. You may have noticed, I haven't posted in several days. That's because I felt the need to slow down and enjoy this special time of year with my family. I wish you peace and joy and a break from the hustle and bustle on this day.

Happy Stamping Always!

They'll be used for stocking stuffers for my adult children. I'll also show you 2 more Gift Card Holder styles you'll definitely want to use if you give Gift Cards.

Painted Christmas Gift Card Holders

'Tis the season for giving so why not make the gift cards you give extra special with some creative packaging. Here are some gift card holders you can make up quickly, after all, time is at a premium for everyone. And these gift card holders are EASY to make and use limited supplies. Just use what you have on hand. I used the Painted Christmas Suite. The Designer Series Paper is traditional in its colors and images, but you use what you like, traditional or not. Start with a half sheet of Designer Series Paper, then just score and fold and decorate for Christmas. I'd love to see the gift card holders you create!

Be sure to save the cutting and scoring dimensions so you can make gift cards year round for any and all occasions that come up. 

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Designer Series Paper = 5 1/2" x 12", score at 3 1/2", 7 3/4", 9 7/8" on LONG side
  • Coordinating card stock = 3/4" x 5 1/2"
