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!
My Stampin’ Blog showcase goes here
Once my mind has accepted the fact that snow is tight around my corner, I DO get excited about pretty snowy cards!
AND THIS IS ONE!
I used Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Whisper White card stock.
Stamping with a variety of the snowflake stamps and both corresponding inks was fun –it was completely random!
You can see the shimmery snowflakes?
I used the
Blizzard Thinlit Die with Sparkle Glimmer Paper!
Of course you can see the Rhinestone Jewel in the center of a few of the snowflakes–a little extra bling!

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!

This is a gorgeous Stampin’ Up! hand made Christmas card.
It’s using the new November promotional stamp set, Snow is Glistening.
Here is the easy and FUN card!
Isn’t it pretty????????
The base is a layer of Merry Merlot..the Joyous Noel DSP is actually the fancy fold.
Don’t worry,…I’ve got a downloadable PDF with all the dimensions and directions later on.
It’s VERY easy and fast to make —seriously!
The message layer is a piece of Merry Merlot with a layer of Very Vanilla and then I stamped the message and a flourish of snow at the top.
The front of the card has another layer of Merry Merlot with Very Vanilla card stock.
This time I stamped the tree in Old Olive, copper embossed three snowflakes and THEN added a swath of Shimmery White Embossing Paste just at tree line.
Looks like snow to me!
I’d love for you to copy this card! Click on any link for product info at my online store or contact me directly!
When I first saw this Stampin’ Up! Farmhouse Christmas stamp set, it reminded me of the town I grew up in.
The Ice Man, Fish Man, Rag Man and dairy farmers ALL had pick ups just like this one!
And I remember at Christmas, trees were delivered and picked up in this same truck.
When I saw this stamp set, I KNEW I had to have it!
First I took a base of Cherry Cobbler then layered a piece of Mossy Meadow on top.
I did run that layer through the Big Shot with the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.
Using the Festive Farmhouse DSP, I added a strip to balance the Mossy Meadow layer.
Next I added a piece of Burlap ribbon and beveled and frayed the edges.
I colored the truck image with our Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.
Then I cut that image out with the Layering Ovals and backed it with a Cherry Cobbler layer.
Dimensionals popped it up for added interest!
Added a few Rhinestones for the headlights and of course pops of Wink of Stella –and ta-da!

This too darn cute Stampin’ Up! Signs of Santa Christmas card makes me laugh!
It’s fun to color and fun to paste!
I used the Big Shot with the Santa’s Signpost Framelits to cut out Santa .
Then I colored him using the Stampin’ Blends and added a puff of cotton to his cap with a drop of Fine Tip Glue.
I also used a banner from the Festive Farmhouse DSP with a bit of gold thread in front of it .
Santa is popped up on the Christmas card with Dimensionals and of COURSE I just had to add Wink of Stella here and there!
What do you think?
