Serene Scenery

Serene scenery

I am making a series of inspirational cards for my store. The Serene Scenery Designer Paper stack is ideal for these type cards and to make Clean and Simple (CAS) cards. The paper is gorgeous and full of nature's best. Since the paper is double-sided the other side of the paper has some lovely graphics.


BONUS DAYS end at 11:50 MT on July 31 so don't miss out!  If you like FREE (and who doesn't like to get something for free?  We're all looking for bargains to make our craft dollar go farther), grab your catalog and look to see what you can order for $50 in order to get the $5 Bonus Bucks to use in August.  Need some essentials?  Card stock, ink, ribbon, adhesives--you always need those so stock up now!  There are some great bundles in the catalog that will qualify.

Designer Tin of Cards Samples

These are some of the cards you can make using the Designer Tin of Cards. This kit makes 16 cards (although you could cut up some of the bases and make even more) and it features 4 of the designer series papers. It's a great way to try out some of these papers without purchasing the entire packs of paper. I often cut up some of the die cuts or use the negative spaces to make even more cards. Use everything you have! This is such a cute kit with dividers for cards so it makes a great gift! You do need the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set if you want to make them as instructed in the directions.

Falling Flowers Swap Card

Swaps are a fun way to get cards made by others and to get inspired by their ideas. They also put me on a time schedule to get some cards make. So if you ever have the chance to do some swaps, take a chance and do so!

Bonus Days Half Over!

This unprecedented promotion by Stampin' Up! is half over.  For every $50 you order, Stampin' Up! will give you $5 in Bonus Bucks to spend in August.  Who doesn't like FREE stuff?   This promotion ends July 31 so grab your catalog and order now!  I ordered basic supplies that I always need --card stock, adhesives, embellishments!  If you order $150 worth, you'll receive $5 coupons as well as $15 in Stampin' Rewards to use however you choose.  You could order a hostess set or any other set.  

When you order, Stampin' Up! will send you an email giving you the codes to use in August-- Don't lose this email!  Print it out and keep it somewhere safe!  Because if you lose it, you'll lose the bonus bucks!  Stampin' Up! can't resend the codes.

A Little Foxy One Sheet Wonder Cards

July osw collage

Here are 5 One Sheet Wonder cards made with a sheet of the "A Little Foxy" paper stack. One sheet of 6 x 6 paper! You could cut this out differently and make something else. And if you cut the paper into 4 pieces, they would fit beautifully on the fronts of 4 x 4 gift enclosure cards! And I was inspired by the umbrella in the My Hero stamp set (proceeds from this set go to Ronald McDonald House charities). Win, win!
