   August 2020 Harvest Hello! Card Class Kit

Hello Stampers!

I am so super excited to share the new August 2020 card class kit pre-order with you!!  You are going to absolutely LOVE the eight projects in this kit!!

My card kit classes are for all level of crafters from beginner to advanced!  PLUS you can add this beautiful stamp set to your stampin’ collection…..

The Harvest Hello stamp set is an A+!  Use the apples for teacher or student gifts.  Then, like the autumn colors shifting from red to orange, the apple becomes a pumpkin with a spooky, yet smiling face.  Harvest Hello set can be found in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog and is a Cling style stamp, meaning it is red rubber and fits on clear blocks A,B,D & G.

The Plaid Tiding designer series paper is from the NEW 2020 August-December Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday catalog).  These classic all-season plaids will brighten your holidays and are fitting all year long, and are great for all your scrap-booking, card making and 3-D projects.

Remember…. create something beautiful today!

Happy Birthday Deby!

Peony Garden Suite Collection


Today I want to share with you a card I created using products from the Peony Garden Suite.  This is a birthday card for my very dear friend, neighbor and crafty team member.  Deby has the most beautiful flower gardens, so of course this set was perfect!

Here is the card, using the Prized Peony Bundle, the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper and of course the 1/4″ Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon.  I did use some of the Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon to offset the Shimmer ribbon.  All supplies used will be listed below for your to add to your shopping cart!

The background technique is the #scrappystriptechnique that was launched by Bruno Bertucci.  This technique is very simple yet adds a stunning background to your project.  Starting with a Petal Pink A2 cardbase, I cut the DSP into 1.5″ x 4″ strips and them cut them at varying angles using my mini-trimmer.  Seriously, NO MEASURING NEEDED.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them to a remnant piece of Gray Granite cardstock that measures 3″ x 5″.  After the strips are adhered and the glue is dry, trim excess edges using a pair of Snips.  Matte the strip piece to onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock measuring  3 1/8″ x 5 1/8″.   Then add to the card base.

The shaded peony was die cut from Whisper White card stock and using a sponge dauber with Petal Pink ink, lightly blush the edges of the petals.  Assemble the peony matching the bottom curves, so easy!  The leaves were cut from scrap pieces of Gray Granite and Basic Gray.

The little “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Posted for You stamp set.

Field of Flowers with FREE PDF













This quick and easy layout was shared with with my team by Donna Griffith last week. It has a very special effect with the way the ribbon is attached and slipped between cut.  I used the new 2020-2022 In-Colors Misty Moonlight for the sentiment and Bumblebee for the flowers.  This Field of Flowers stamp set is a great all around set and the font is so cool.  Granny Apple Green for the flower stems and then a burst of denim using the 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.

Here is a the PDF for this project, I just changed up the colors for this card….

Please comment if you give this a try.  I’d love to see your creations and interpretation of this layout.

A World of Good!

A World of Good Suite by Stampin’Up!


This card is created using the products from the all new  World of Good Suite on page 24 of the 2020-2021 Stampin’Up! annual catalog.  If you do not have a demonstrator and would like a complimentary copy of the catalog please request one by clicking the link at the top of the page.  The card base is just one of the  FIVE new In-Colors.  The color here is Misty Moonlight and you can see how beautifully it coordinates with the designer series paper and ribbon.  This card is a really fun fold and is really out of this world!  (pun intended)

The card base measures 4.25″ x  11″ scored at 5.5″ and 4″,  2 pieces measuring 3.75″ x  4″, one of Designer Series Paper and one Whisper White Cardstock, 1 piece of coordinating Designer Series Paper measuring 1.25″ x 4″,  and some assorted scraps for die cutting.

For the inside of my project,  I chose the  coordinating sentiment and a small strip of the new Brass Foil Sheets.  For complete instructions and measurements to make this card,  you can watch the YouTube video below.
