Stampin’ Up! Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder!!!

Hi Friends,

Hopefully you will be able to watch my FaceBook live this morning! ( or my YouTube channel ) to see how to make this beautiful card!

It’s very easy yet lends itself to a degree of loveliness–I think!

This is the first card. I decided to create a sympathy version and I think it came our well. What do YOU think?

Basic white card stock was  the base  then I used the die/embossing folder with another piece of white for the layer.

I only added TomBow glue to the rectangle –letting the perimeter free fall on the card.

I did cut out another rectangle for the message and popped it on with Dimensionals.

Done –what do YOU think?

This next one is a thank you and I used Berry Delightful DSP ( one of my favs but you can  use any DSP!)

Again, I used TomBow to adhere the layer but kept the edges free.

I will post two more after my FaceBook live –a birthday and Christmas.

I do love the versatility of this bundle and you may also!!

Below you will find the products I used for the 4 cards I made.

Stampin’ Up ! Pretty Pumpkins !!!

Hi Friends,

This is the card I’ll be showing this morning and I hope you’ll be able to watch my Facebook live today at 10AM!!!!!!!!

I took a LOT of inspiration from talented Demo, Julie Gilson.

Thinking outside the box is an area I’m trying to embrace more—Julie has a great knack for it and I LOVE what she did.

I changed it up a bit .

This is what I did.

The base is Pale Papaya with a layer of Very Vanilla. I embossed the vanilla with the Subtles Embossing Folder.*

Next I took a piece of Copper Foil paper and on top of that added a piece of Very Vanilla.

This time I embossed that with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder.*

The fun then begins with cutting out the pumpkin, vines and flowers and vanilla pumpkin using the corresponding dies.

I added Wink of Stella to the Vanilla pumpkin and Shimmery Crystal Effects to the three pumpkins (after I colored them with our blends)

Added a gold bow using the Elegant Trim and popped it on with a glue dot!

The envelope was of course decorated with the vines and inside I added a message.

Voila –done and DONE and gorgeous!

So friends, I hope you can watch me this AM or got to MY YouTube channel or FaceBook page and watch the replay.

* These are retired embossing folders but you can use ANY folder which will complement your design.

Stampin’ Up! Color Contour and SCORING!!!

Hi Friends,

It’s been way too long since I posted here –so I’m turning over a few hundred leaves in the forests and back in the saddle I am!!!!

OK this card is what I’m featuring the Stampin’ Up! Color & Contour stamp set plus Peaceful Monents for the greeting.

I have to say this was a FUN and EASY card to make!


If you look very closely, you can see vertical and horizontal lines of scoring.  I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool but you could also use the Paper Trimmer. It was EASY!!!

Then I did two step stamping with Highland Heather and Balmy Blue inks and a bit of Pear Pizzazz for background effect.

I did add Shimmery Crystal Effects to the centers of the flowers.

Pear Pizzazz  was added for the tiny dots and then I took the Thank You stamp ( from Peaceful Moments) and finished the card !


What do you think?

We will be making these cards at my classes next week –Monday night starting at 5PM and Wednesday at 10AM.

I’d love YOU to come !  Let me know!

Please contact me of you have any questions!

I love what we do and I hope YOU DO TOO!!!
