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.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" 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.

Free Friday Download - Arctic Bears

Winter is nearly here, but we haven't had much snow in central Ohio yet. I don't think we're going to have a White Christmas like we did last year, but we're sure to get some snow throughout the winter months. 

Today's Free Friday Download features the Arctic Bears Bundle and some Shimmery White card stock colored with Misty Moonlight ink and a Blending Brush. You'll want to get the Arctic Bears Bundle SOON as it is retiring. It's available while supplies last only through January 3rd.  And if you haven't purchased or yet tried our Blending Brushes, you really should. They are amazing for adding soft layers of color to get your desired shade of any one of our many colors..
