Stampin’ Up! Grace’s Garden Video Tutorial

April 1, 2020

Hello, friends….I had fun playing with the Grace’s Garden Bundle….so pretty!

Here is a video showing how I used the Garden Gateway Dies to create this pretty card with the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.

A little leftover DSP to decorate the inside:)

The Paper Players has a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge going on now…

I chose DIE CUT-SPRING-BIRTHDAY for this card:

I changed up the sentiment for this one…

I used a different pattern of the Garden Lane DSP on this one which changed up my colors.

I also used the Garden Gateway Dies with the Free as a Bird stamp set and Bird Ballad DSP
using the PINK-SPRING-PATTERNED PAPER from the challenge, too!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 11″ side

March 30, 2020

So very thankful for the USPS and UPS these days…although I have always appreciated them on a daily basis!
I have been known to say to the UPS driver, “Thank you, I love you!”
I have plans this week for a Mr. Brown card, too!

I was inspired by Amy’s Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #428.

I made a sidewalk using the Sale-a-Bration Stone Embossing Folder.
Don’t forget that Sale-a-bration ends Tuesday, March 31st!

I am hoping my postal lady doesn’t mind the mailman on the card!
Maybe I can find a way to add a lady face from the Young at Heart stamp set…lol.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks for the Laughs with Young at Heart

March 27, 2020

We all need a good laugh to get through life especially right now. That’s where our friends come in… this card is for all the wonderful ladies that I could send this to- women who support me, love me, and make me laugh!

I was inspired by Claire’s sketch at the Paper Players #483.

I love the sentiment LAUGHING WITH YOU IS THE BEST FORM OF THERAPY
from the Stampin’ Up! Young at Heart stamp set…

but I ended up using another sentiment on the inside from the Stampin’ Up! Thanks for the Laughs. I know a lot of great friends who would agree with these words!

The Stampin’ Up! Thanks for the Laughs is just absolutely FABULOUS!!! One of the best sentiment sets I have for friendships…sweet sincere words along with funny little phrases:)

March 28, 2020 Thank you Paper Players for honoring me this week! 

 

Thanks for stopping by, friends…
