Pumpkin Alternatives

2017_12_19 I used the  October My Paper Pumpkin Pining for Plaid kit to create 2 alternative designs.  Both cards use the card bases from the Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin kit and I added a strip of DSP from the Merry Little Christmas #144621 collection and added the printed card from the kit.  For the top card, I used my Stampin Up trimmer to create segments  and layered them with pop dots to create the telescoping effect.

Stitched with Cheer Project Kit

My friend and customer Mindi took advantage of the Stampin Up  Stitched with Cheer Project Kit #142012 to get a “jump start” on her holiday cards. Kit includes enough supplies for 18 cards, 6 each of 3 designs, and 18 kraft envelopes and envelope liners. Mindi had to refresh her handstitching skills by watching a You Tube video,but none the less she sewed up the holidays with these completed hand-stitched cards in festive designs. If you love these cards you can get the Stitched with Cheer project kit while supplies last during the Year end  clearance sale.

A stamp in her hand


This is my friend Mindi who recently has caught the stamping bug.  She bought a D Size block and no stamps because she loved the acrylic block.  Once I  turned her loose with stamp sets to practice with she purchased both card kits from Stampin Up and completed her first card from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit  #140406.  This card is exceptionally special because today her daughter left Ohio to be a year long exchange student to Germany. Safe travels to Maddison!

Watercolor Wishes


I recently introduced my good friend Mindy to stamping.  From the time she held her first block in her hand and stamped her first image she was hooked! So she wanted to start stamping her own cards and today’s card is her first card!  With the help of the Stampin Up Water Color Wishes Card Kit  Mindy is now a card maker.  The Watercolor Wishes Card Kit #140406is a great way to get started because it is an all inclusive kit giving you everything you need to make 20 cards.
