Take a look at this card I recently made for a friend.

Today I want to show you how easy a few card techniques can be used to make a very pretty Stampin’ Up! card!
First I took a piece of Crumb Cake card stock as my base.
Next I took a piece of Crumb Cake ( 1/4′ smaller by length and width of the base) and stamped, in Early Expresso ink, the words “Thank You Kindly” from the Hanging Garden stamp set.
NEXT –magic with the Subtles Embossing Folder!I ( one of MY NEW FAVORITES!)
Take a look at the ‘subtle’ yet textured look of that layer.
Can you see the fine lines? Makes me think of fine wale corduroy.
Next I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and used the Layering Squares Framelits, with my Big Shot, cut 3 squares.
Then I took a piece of the Frosted Floral DSP ( LOVE the colors and the fine shimmer!!!) and made 3 smaller squares.
Of course I used Snail to adhere all 3 pieces of DSP to the card stock.
Then I arranged the squares on the embossed layer.
To add just a bit of interest, I used 3 enamel shapes in the lower right hand corner.
There you have it…3 easy techniques:
1. Using the Subtles Embossing Folder
2. Using the Layering Squares Framelits
3. Adding a few embellishments.
Three simple ways to make a card –make it YOUR own and send it with love!
You could make a boxed set of these for a gift!

I just cam back from OnStage in Orlando.
One of the re-visited ideas is to take a look at simpler stamping.
What does THAT mean?
Well, simply, it means to keep your design impressive yet easy..
Here is a card we did at my Monday class.
I LOVE ( I know I’ve said this before, but I do LOVE the Foil -Edged Silver and Gold Paper and envelopes.
They are so easy to use and VERY VERSATILE.
So for this card, I used the Gold Edged Paper and then added a layer of Rich Razzleberry card stock.
Next I cut a piece of the Sweet Soiree DSP ( yes it’s retired but I just had to use it!) and layered it on top.
That paper is gorgeous and it was just enough to give the card some simple elegance.
See how nicely the layer of Rich Razzleberry fits on top of the Gold-Edged card base? Then add the DSP and oh so pretty.
Inside I added a message from the Cake Soiree stamp set –and voila–done deal!
You could use ANY DSP for any occasion. These card and envelope packs are a great deal and fun to use!
What do YOU think?
Now I’m not sure if I’ll be able to control my urges to use more layers and embellishments but every once in a while we’ll do some ‘simple stamping’.
How does that sound to you?
Please let me know your thoughts about simpler, easier stamping.. I aim to please and need YOUR input!
This week I’m in Orlando for our 30 year Stampin’ Up! Celebration convention!
One of the FUN things we do is create cards to swap with other Demonstrators ( over 5000 of us!!!)
This is one Swap card I designed.
I used Gray Granite as the base –such a subtle color –I LOVE it!
The next layer is Coastal Cabana embossed with the Layering Leaves Folder.
Then I took a piece of the Silver Foil card stock and layered Frosted Floral DSP on top of that.
Those papers are soooooo beautiful–one side has a muted shimmery appearance to it. GORGEOUS!
The Silver Foil paper makes the designer paper really POP!
SO I swapped these with my house mates and I’ll show you what I received in return when I’m back in Massachusetts.
I’m SURE I’ll have some gorgeous cards to share with all of you!

I LOVE the Petal Promenade Designer Series paper.
The colors are soft and romantic and really have such versatility!
See how beautiful that paper is! There are 4 sheets with trimmable elements–just like the one I used.
I did emboss the Fresh Fig card stock using the Layered Leaves Folder.
What do you think?
The base was made with Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4–scored at 4 1/4″.
The next layer is Fresh Fig cut at 5 1/4″ x 4″ and embossed.
Then the DSP was cut at 3″ square and layered onto a piece of the Galvanized Metallic paper (cut 3 1/4″ square), using Snail Adhesive.
That layer was attached using Dimensionals
Then the message was stamped and pushed through the Big Shot using layering Ovals.
I did the same with a piece of Fresh Fig to back the white layer.
Lastly I cut a piece of the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon and attached to the back of the oval.
I can NOT say enough about how much I LOVE the
Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes! They come in either gold or silver and add such a degree of elegance, in my humble opinion!
They are so easy to use and certainly lend a air of elegance to any card you make!

I made this card for my trip to Idaho.
I’ll be needing ‘thank you’s’ so this was a fast and easy way to create some simple yet sweet cards.
I am IN LOVE with Blackberry Bliss and Gray Granite colors .
So the base is Gray Granite at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
Next is a layer of Blackberry Bliss at 5 1/4 x 4.
Then a layer of Frosted Floral Dsp at 5 x 3 3/4.
Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, I cut a larger oval in Blackberry Bliss, a next sized smaller in Whisper White.
I used the Happiness Surrounds stamp set images and Gray Granite, Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive inks to create a flower image.
Snailed the white layer onto the blackberry layer then popped a few Dimensionals on and placed it on the card.
I added a thank you from All Things Thanks –and voila –card is done!
Not to leave out the envelope (no naked envelopes in my house!) – added the leaves in Old Olive.
