Today I am sharing some cards I recently made - so you can think about making your own cards for any event in your life! Copy exactly or take the ideas to create your own cards! That's what great about this card making "hobby" - you can choose how you want to take any sketch or card and re-create it in your own home!
I really love trying out "One Sheet Wonder" templates as I can get so many different cards from one sheet of paper! Take a look at all the cards I made using only an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of this gorgeous Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. The "specialty" part comes in because of the copper foil in the pattern on a couple of sheets - you can really see it on the bonus card I made with some of the leftover pieces after I cut into my 12" x 12" papers. I added some copper foil die cuts and it looks really shiny in person!
I got this idea from a Pinterest post from UK demonstrator Michelle Last - loved the way she stamped her own background paper - I took the easy way out by cutting into one of Stampin' Up!'s ready printed papers! This is a perfect way to add cards to your stash, and use up some of those papers you have stored to use up "someday"!!
Remember that during the month of October you can stock up on your favourite papers with the Buy 3, get 1 FREE promotion - a great chance to stock up or share with a friend!
The die cuts and stamps are from the Sunshine Sayings bundle of dies and stamps - and you get 10% off when you get them together . . . . and who doesn't love to save?? I love that you can mix and match the dies with the stamps!
Check them out here in my on-line store where you can shop 24/7 whenever you need to get it now!
I hope you had a chance to sit at a table with some family and friends this past Thanksgiving Day weekend. We had family visiting us and used some of my September Paper Pumpkin kit treat holders for each place - they were well loved!!
Paper Pumpkin kits come to you monthly and include FedEx delivery - you always get a fun surprise to create right away, or to take with you on a holiday, or when you have children visiting - they LOVE to help you create! Click here to sign up so you can start your monthly fun kit!
And card makers are definitely getting into the Christmas spirit as we start making cards to send to our family and friends during the holidays - here is a perfect card that uses the Pretty Pines Framelits Dies, the Merry Tags Framelits Dies and the Pine Bough Textured Embossing Folder from the Holiday Catalogue, along with the Large Letters Framelits. I got the idea from Sandi in our demo group and altered it to use what I had on hand! You can even see a peak of pine bough in side the card! All supplies are available through me or my online store!
I hope you enjoy todays' cards and if I can help you in your paper crafting journey, send me an email or message me from Facebook! I'd love to hear from you!
