This Little Piggy Joy Fold Card






Hello, and welcome! I have a fancy fold card for you today. It's called the Joy Fold Card. I followed a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers HERE.

Isn't the pig a cutie? She's from our This Little Piggy Stamp Set. What a great stamp set!


I used our new Thick Very Vanilla Card Stock for the front panel since I was going to water color the image. The designer paper is not Stampin' Up! It is a paper pad with farm type designs from Studio G.

Paper Pumpkin Note Card





Hello, and welcome! This pretty note card only took a few minutes to make. The base card, envelope, stamps, ink, and wood element came from this month's Paper Pumpkin Kit. I keep a plastic box full of extra die cuts, and decorative elements leftover from past projects. I happen to have had the beautiful dragonfly that was already sponged using Lemon-Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide. After stamping the starbursts on the watercolor note card, I noticed that they were a perfect match. All I did was add one of our Mini Dimensionals to the dragonfly.

I added some of our Clear Wink of Stella to the wood love embellishment. It really adds just the right touch of sparkle.

If you would like to know more about the Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Kits, please click on the information bar right under my Jean's Paper Jewels header above. It's a wonderful, all inclusive paper crafting kit, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Don't forget about the Bonus Days promotion. Were more than half way through the month.

Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips Birthday Card



Hello stampers, and thanks for joining me today. I used the sketch layout from yesterday's CASED card to make one of my own design. I used the beautiful Tranquil Tulips Host Stamp Set along with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous for the two sentiments. The tulips are stamped on Shimmery White Card Stock, making them even prettier in person.

To achieve the layered look of the tulips simply stamp the base color lighter by stamping off onto a piece of scrap paper first. Then stamp the second layer full strength. You can also use two coordinating colors to get the same effect. I used our Sweet Sugarplum Ink Pad. Here are the rest of the supplies I used:

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Card




Hello, and welcome. I CASED this card from one I saw on Pinterest by another SU Demonstrator named Jackie Bolhuis. CASE means create, and share everything. The only thing I changed was the color. If you're not feeling creative, simply do as I have, and copy a card that you like. It's nice to give the creator credit if you know their name. I plan on taking the layout from this card, and making it different by using other products. That way it makes it my own. Sometimes that spurs creativity as well.

Here is a list of products that I used:

Stampin' Up! Tasty Trucks





Happy Friday! I simply couldn't resist using the retired Sale.A.Bration Tasty Truck Stamp Set. I have been wanting to make the little 3-D truck for a long time, and finally took the time to do it. How about the super cute Washi Tape strips?! Perfect right?! My friend, Lisa gave them to me back in April when we met in Lafayette, Louisiana for OnStage. Then a couple of weeks ago, I found a package of sticky notes at Walmart that included the taco image you see in the card. I just stamped the sentiment on it, pulled it off, then mounted it on one of the ovals from our Stitched Shapes Framelits Set. So easy, but so cute! I found a video on You Tube for the truck. There are several.

I made a second truck to hold the other two note pads. The second pad was a hot dog, and third a slice of pizza. This was a fun project for me. I hope you will take the time to create something that you've been wanting to make!






Have a great weekend!

Stampin' Up! A Little Wild Note Card Set



Have you seen the cute images in the new A Little Wild Stamp Set? They are so sweet, and cute. I have combined several Stampin' Up! products to make this little 3" x 3" note card set. The honey bear, lion, and elephant are from A Little Wild, the star, and rooster from Wood Words, and the sentiments come from past Paper Pumpkin Stamp Sets.

I also used the new Wood Crate Thinlets Dies for the crate itself as well as the rooster, and star on the cards. I made matching envelopes with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack, and used scraps from that stack for card accents. The background paper is not Stampin' Up!.

I made these notes to be used as lunch box notes. My 5 year old grandson starts school in a few days, so I gave them to my daughter to tuck away some little surprises for him. I plan on making more to keep the supply going.
