Xt8p8GslRIq9T8R4XPyeAQ

Hello Friends,

Yes, we love to make cards and pretty papercrafts.  If you didn't enjoy making cards, you probably won't be looking at this blog right now.   Do you send your cards?  It is so much fun to receive hand stamped cards in the mail.  

Here's the Challenge!

World Card Making Day was this past Saturday.  Now it's time to send those gorgeous and funny cards. Welcome to our annual World Card Sending Week—happening now. Stampin' Up!'s goal is to send 60,000 cards from Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, customers, and employees between Sunday, October 4, and Sunday, October 11.

Don’t let those cards collect dust, send them this week with a handwritten message. Tag your card photos on Social media using #worldcardsendingweek2020 or #SU2020WCMD.
 


Sending Sunshine Stampin' Up!

This Sending You Sunshine would be a fun card to send for World Card Sending Week, plus it's easy to make.  Simply stamp a scene bathed in sunshine with the Sending Sunshine stamp set.  Trim your send with the Stitched Nested Dies.    


Sending Sunshine Stampin' Up!

I inked my water stamps with Soft Sea Foam ink and layered the two stamps.  Next, I stamped the sunshine using So Saffron Ink.  I wanted a softer blue for my clouds, so I stamped off my Seaside Spray ink and then stamped my clouds.  The leaves and sentiment were stamped with Just Jade Ink.  I backed my stamped scene with Forever Greenery Designer Paper which is 15% off in the month of October.

2 Card Challenges

Positive Thoughts Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

During these uncertain times escaping to your Craft Space and letting your creativity run wild is even more important than ever.  So today, I have 2 card challenges for you to get your mojo started.  Are you up for the challenge?  Let me first tell you about the 2 challenges and then I will share tips for making today's card.


Card Color Challenge

Challenge #1 Color

Try making a card, a scrapbook layout or any other papercraft using Calypso Coral, Pretty Peacock, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White.


Follow Your Art Stampin' Up!

Challenge #2

Most of us have a hefty stash of beautiful designer paper.  Here's the Challenge.  Use your designer paper in an unexpected way.  For example, I used the Follow Your Art Designer Paper to make today's card.  Naturally, the Follow Your Art Designer Paper was designed to be used with the Follow Your Art Suite found on pages 52-54 of the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  I used a piece that looked like a color wash as a panel on my card.  To make it even more interesting, I stamped "Hugs, Prayers and Love" directly on my designer paper.


Positive Thoughts Stampin' Up!

Let's talk about today's card which used both of today's challenges.  Everything was stamped with the Positive Thoughts stamp set using colors from today's Color Challenge.  I do have a confession to make.  The die set that I used for today's card is not currently available, but.......it will be available again with the launch of the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  The dies are called Nature's Thoughts.  So if you missed them in February watch for them in June. Finishing touches for today's card are a Crushed Curry Double Bow and a bit of Smoky Slate Splatters.  Simply make a watery mix of Smoky Slate ink and splatter with either an Aqua Painter or a paintbrush.

 

Have a fabulous day,
