Hi, There, Stampers! I'm back with yet another card that I've made with the Amazing Year Stamp Set. Remember that my first impression was that this was a stamp set that was pretty much just for making birthday cards. But here's another card that isn't necessarily a birthday card, though it certainly could be one. And besides focusing on the way I used the stamp set, I'd like to show you how I … [Read more...] about Amazing Year In a Slimline Card
Hi, There, Stampers! Today's card is the second in this week's exploration of the Amazing Year Stamp Set. And it was a lot simpler to make than the first card I shared earlier this week. Flowers Aren't Just for Birthdays - And Neither is the Amazing Year Stamp Set I told you earlier that I first looked at the Amazing Year Stamp Set as a birthday set. Amazing Year - Birthdays come once a year - … [Read more...] about Amazing Year In Flowers
Hi, There, Stampers! I've been spending most of this past week re-learning how to do videos. The last time I did them was way before my cell phone was capable of making videos. So now I'm having to learn how to record and edit videos with all new equipment. That's not to mention that I'm a lot more experienced in what I'm doing when it comes to creating projects. Can you say, "learning … [Read more...] about Amazing Year Stamp Set Sampler Week

Hi, There, Stampers! Texture Chic is not a set of papers that grabbed my attention in my first scan through the new Stamin' Up! 2022-23 Annual Catalog. But, as happens so often, once I saw some sample that others made with it, I had to have it. The one feature of this paper that really caught my attention was the seashell theme in some of the papers. I may not live in Hawai'i any more. But those … [Read more...] about Another Strip Front Card – With Texture Chic!
Hi, There, Stampers! Today I'm back with another card made with strips of paper. In my last post I used six different prints from the paper set I used. This time, though, I'm just using a piece of one print to create the whole card-front background. The reason is that this paper has designs that create a scene all by themselves. Special Sheets in the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper … [Read more...] about Happy Forest Friends Paper Makes a Card Front
Hi, There, Stampers! This week I've been playing with my new Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper sets.

Just to keep that long phrase from taking over this article, I'm going to do something I try not … [Read more...] about Showing Off “Awash With Beauty” Papers

Hi, There, Papercrafters! When it comes to CASEing (Copy And Share with Everyone), it's not just the layout that makes the card. In this CASE, it was more the colors that caught my eye than the layout. But I ended up somewhat CASEing the layout, too. Read on. The Original Floral Design I found the card that inspired today's project on page 72 of the Stampin' Up! 2022-23 Annual Catalog. It … [Read more...] about Bottled Happiness – CASEing the Colors!
