Warm & Toast Card Tips and Supply List

Stamp your skating polar bear from the Warm & Toasty stamp set (#152625) and color with Misty Moonlight (#153108), Balmy Blue (#154830) and Flirty Flamingo (#154884) Stampin' Blends.  Cut image using Layering Ovals dies (#151771).

Apply White Faux Linen Ribbon and Misty Moonlight/Silver Baker's Twine (Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack #153620) in a loose, carefree way.  Don't overthink the ribbon placement too much.  Mr. Polar won't care that's part of the fun.

Sneak Peek Coming Home Bundle Stampin' Up!

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I love the new August-December 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog and I love Sneak Peeks!  Meet the Coming Home Bundle from the Trimming the Town Suite by Stampin' Up!.  While the Coming Home Bundle was definitely designed with winter and holidays in mind, it's also versatile enough to be used for many other occasions.  So for my Sneak Peeks of the Coming Home Bundle, I designed a Welcome Card, a Miss You Card, and a Welcome Gift of Homemade Raspberry Peach Jam.

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Far Apart But Close At Heart Card

First, I die cut my red polka dot road using the Home Together Dies (item #153515) and Trimming the Town Designer Paper (item #153491).  At this point, it was only natural to add a little red card.  To make the card, I inked up my card stamp from the Coming Home Stamp set (item #153500) and then die-cut my card using the Home Together Dies.  The Mile Apart sentiment is a stamp from the Well Said stamp set (item #148796).  Note:  Thick Whisper White Card Stock (#140272) makes the best White Card Bases.

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Welcome Home Card

This time the Trimming the Town Designer Paper covers the front of my card.  The little houses are so stinkin' cute.  Again I used the Coming Home Stamp set and Home Together Dies to fashion my card focal point.  I chose Poppy Parade, Old Olive, and Pool Party Card Stocks because they are colors included in the Designer Paper.  It so, so easy to choose project colors when they are listed in the Stampin' Up! Catalog and on the Designer Paper Pack.  Once again I snagged a stamp from the Well Said stamp set to stamp my sentiment.  The only additional tool that I used for this card was the Stitched Shapes Dies (item # 152323).  Inks used for today's cards and tags were Misty Moonlight and Early Espresso.

The Coming Home Bundle (item # 155144) and the Trimming the Town Designer Paper will be available to order with the launch of the August-December 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog on August 4, 2020.

Forever Fern Fancy Fold Card

Hello Friends,

I'm a sucker for ferns.  I love their lacey beauty!  So when I saw the Forever Fern Bundle in the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Preorder, I just knew that I would have to have it.  All I can say is "GORGEOUS"!  Today's video tutorial gives you a Sneak Peek of the Forever Fern Bundle and teaches you how to make a simple Z-Fold Card.  This Fancy Fold Card is an impressive card that's simple to make.  You may remember that I used the same Fancy Fold yesterday to make a card with the Beautiful Friendship stamp set.  See it here.


Watch the quick video above to learn how to make this impressive card.  It's easier than you might think.


To make a full-size card you will need 12" x 12" Whisper White Card Stock.  Cut your card base 12" x 5-1/2".  Score at 4" and 8".

Forever Fern Stampin' Up!

Colors used for today's Forever Fern Card are Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, and Garden Green.  The band, ribbon, and die-cut piece are Just Jade.
