What's In the Mailbox?

Handmade Cards

The Best Kind of Mail is Sent With Love


Harvest Hellos Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

It's so much fun to open the mailbox and find a handmade card or gift made with love.  Yesterday's happy mail was a sweet handmade card made by my grandson, Colten.  Tucked inside was this adorable pair of happy earrings along with a note that said, "The earrings look like Nana".  Let me just say, my heart was in a puddle when I opened that envelope.


Harvest Hellos Stampin' Up!

This darling gift is my inspiration for today's card.  I tried to capture the essence of the earrings with a card.  The Pumpkin is from the Harvest Hellos stamp set and the leaves are from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.  The earrings have a subtle texture so I added texture to my card with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Such Sweetness!

Back On Your Feet Slimline Card

Slimline Cards Expand the Real Estate

Back On Your Feet Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Have you ever been hit with a triple whammie?  It's not fun to be sick or hurt or down on your luck. Handmade Cards a fabulous way to say, "I care".

One thing that I like about Slimline Cards is that they really expand your creative real estate.  The larger size offers more space on your card.  Because this is a Slimline Card I was able to add all 3 cute images from the Back On Your Feet stamp set from Stampin' Up!.  Find Out More About Slimline Cards Here.

Back On Your Feet Stampin' Up!

The punched circle windows allow the adorable sloth and handsome giraffe to peek to the front of the card.  I created the wood panel using In Good Taste Designer Paper which is on sale through Saturday, October 31.

Back On Your Feet Stampin' Up!

Behind the window we can see the full picture of Mr. Sloth and Mr. Giraffe.  It's also the perfect place to slip in a Get Well sentiment.  The "sending well wishes your way" stamp is from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

All the animals were colored with Stampin' Blends.

Timeless Tropical Birthday Card

Timeless Tropical Stampin' Up!

Coloring a Timeless Tropical Birthday


Timeless Tropical Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Some people dream of warm beaches and sunshine.  The Timeless Tropical stamp set by Stampin' Up! is a fabulous choice for making cards for hot weather kind of people.  You can almost hear the ocean and feel the warm breeze.


Timeless Tropical Stampin' Up!

To color my flowers and leaves I used vibrant colors and brushed on a hint of sparkle with my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to make everything look like it had been kissed by the sun.  My big tropical flower was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink then colored with a combination of Magenta Madness, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends.  My leaves were stamped with Old Olive Ink then lightly colored with Granny Apple Green Blends.  My smaller flowers were finished with a simple combination of Mango Melody.


Timeless Tropical Stampin' Up!

To create my beachy background I inked up a water stamp from the Waterfront stamp set using Coastal Cabana Ink then stamped light and dark images.  I can almost hear the waves splashing in the background.
