Hello Friends,

Are you new to stamping?  Would you like to learn the basics of How to Make A Card?  Are you an experienced stamper, but you only have a limited amount of time to craft?  If you answered yes to any of these things, Make it in Minutes Mondays are for you.  Each Monday here at Stamping Country, I share cute cards or tags that can be made in minutes with a little bit of stamping.  Get Step by Step Easy to Follow Instructions including card measurements along with a card supply list.  Today's simple card is a Christmas Card made with the Snow Wonder stamp set.

Snow Wonder Stampin' Up!

Make in Minutes Snow Wonder Card Instructions

Start with a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Very Vanilla Card Base.  Score at 4-1/4".

Next, using the Stamparatus or clear blocks stamp your old-fashioned snowman and blessing, peace, and magic sentiment from the Snow Wonder stamp set.  Use Soft Suede ink to stamp your images.

Add just a pop of color by adding tiny scraps of designer paper.  I used 2 pieces of  Poinsettia Place Designer Paper cut 1" x 3-1/2" and a 1/2" x 3-1/2".


The Stamparatus stamp positioning tool makes every stamper look like a stamping pro.  See the video above to find out more.

Beautiful Friendship Stamps for the Joy of Stamping

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up!

Hello  Friends,

I honestly don't know if it is possible to make a "bad card" with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  This is a stamp set that you buy simply for the joy of stamping because you cannot possibly go wrong.  For today's card, I started with a blank canvas of Whisper White Card Stock.

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up!

For even more stamping fun I increased the size of my card to 5-1/2" x 12".  I scored at 4" and 8", then I sliced a triangle from the front two panels for a layered Z-Fold look.

Fancy Fold Card

My biggest tip when stamping randomly with lots of stamps is to work from the biggest stamps to the smallest stamps until you are happy with the results.  Today's ink colors are Flirty Flamingo, Soft Seafoam, Poppy Parade, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, and Garden Green.  The Garden Green was a marker to color the stems.

Beautiful Friendship Stampin' Up!
The good news is that the Beautiful Friendship stamp set #149252 will carry over into the new 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Catalog!  The Beautiful Friendship stamp set works well for the beginner stamper, the seasoned stamper and everyone in-between.
