Circle Punch Flowers Card


These circle punch flowers turned out great and are perfect for my to go cards this month!  Per Stampin' Up's policy, I can't pre-stamp anything so I put together kits that don't require any stamping beyond a greeting.  I can punch and die cut so my stampers will have an envelope of circles and leaves to assemble in the comfort of their own homes!

I was able to use 4 of the 5 new 2022-2024 InColors and threw in a little Flirty Flamingo on the center flower.  And the leaves?  They are from the cherry punch!  Isn't that fun?  And the stems are freehand from scraps.  Imagine all the color combinations you can try!

Potted Geraniums Birthday Card


This happy geranium card was popular at our June Stamp-a-Stack last weekend. I didn't set out to match my napkins, but it was a happy accident.  Anyone that has attended very many of my events knows my love of pretty napkins.  Maybe I was subconsciously thinking of the pinks in those napkins when I started stamping.  I used Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo for the geranium and it was just the right combination!

For anyone wondering, the treat was a white chocolate snickerdoodle blondie, and it was delicious.  Here's my Pinterest board of successful Stamp-a-Stack treats if you'd like to try them.

Sweet Songbird Celebration Card

Isn't this a cute little bird?  I didn't realize until stampers were leaving my house after making this card that it is very similar to the bird I have hanging on my front door right now.  

I combined this new Sweet Songbirds bundle with new In Colors, Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party, for our first event of the new catalog.  And I'll admit I used the same color combination as I did on my last new Sending Smiles In Color card - becoming my new favorite?  Maybe :-)

 

I wanted to use the words from the set and I like bigger images for the inside of the card, so as you can see, problem solved with a little extra stamping!

Sending Smiles Birthday Card

I spent my afternoon making a swap card.  It's one of the fun perks of being a demo.  We get to preorder from new catalogs, and then we swap with other demonstrators.  We make a set number and send them off to the swap hostess, and she swaps them out and sends us back that same number of different cards made by demonstrator friends.  It's a great way to get ideas or to see new product being used!  We make full cards so sometimes I have used one to send to one of my stampers who has seen and/or made all of my ideas already.  

I used the new Sending Smiles stamp set and dies to make this cheerful card, and I love, love, love the new In Colors, Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis together.

Springy Cards for a Snowy Day

Here in central Illinois, we are have another day of snow.  I designed cards for this weekend’s stamp-a-stack knowing this weather was coming. It looks like I’m going to need to reschedule and will need another card design.  I’m afraid the valentine card will be too late when we are able to stamp next weekend.  Maybe I can put together a slightly modified to go kit for valentine cards!


These other two cards definitely have us thinking springy thoughts!


My friend Mary McCormick designed this bird card for a group swap. I made a few changes, but this card was definitely inspired by Mary‘s creation. I love that little pop of Pool Party ink on the flowers.

Cards for the Winter Months


It was fun to get back to my craft room after a holiday break to make this month’s to go kit cards.  I decided on a mixture of wintery cards with a little hint of spring coming.  

These card kits are die cut and ready to assemble so when planning, I knew the tree die would make an easy yet stunning card.  That red bird is just the right pop of color.  



February to go kits won't go out until after Valentine's Day so I included this one for anyone who won't be attending an in person event. 


This lovely card make me want my tulips are daffodils to start coming up.  I have this very daffodil in my backyard, and I look forward to putting them in a vase on the kitchen table every year.  


This guy is fussy cut from some of the DSP in the last round of Sale-a-bration.  He's wintery but not Christmasy.
