Hello, and welcome! I used the new, upcoming Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks for today's cards. It is a set of 6 different masks for $10, and will be available for purchase January 4, 2022. I used two more of the set to create the background mats pictured, and will make them into cards later.

It's really much easier than I thought to use them. Just place the mask over Cardstock, fabric, or other material and add a little color! To hold the mask in place, use temporary adhesive or temporary tape, such as painter's tape. Use just a tiny bit of ink or paint-if you use too much, it will seep under the mask. To clean, wipe off with a baby wipe or rinse off. I used Sponge Daubers on the top card, and Blending Brushes on the second, and extra mats. You could also:
• Spritz using ink, chalk, or glimmer sprays
• Sponge using ink or paint
• Trace using markers
• Emboss using VersaMark Ink and embossing powders
• Add texture using embossing paste.

The sentiments on my cards came from the Special Moments Stamp Set. It will be FREE with $100 purchase (before tax & shipping), during Sale A Bration. This special campaign begins January 4, 2022, and runs through February 28, 2022. Choose a FREE Sale A Bration product with ever $50 or $100 you spend (before tax & shipping).

Hello, and welcome! I colored the pretty flower image from the upcoming Blessings Of Home Stamp Set using sponge daubers, and three ink pads. This pretty stamp set, and the cute Brushed Brass Butterfly Embellishments will be available January 4, 2022. The stamp image, and sentiment are stamped on Shimmery Card Stock using Evening Evergreen. I also used Calypso Coral, and Pale Papaya. I have shared a video on You Tube to show how quick, and easy it is.

Hello, and welcome! I made today's card during the Stampin' Up! OnStage @ Home event. We used products from the Heart & Home Suite that will be available to order January 4, 2022. This is the first of three. Stampin' Up! demonstrators can order new products now, so contact me if you want to know how.

This is an A2 size card which is half a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" cut in half. The pretty piece of paper measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" to cover the whole front. The paper is called Heart & Home. The flower image, and sentiment  were stamped in Misty Moonlight on Shimmery White. The flowers were then cut out with the matching die. They are colored using sponge daubers with Misty Moonlight, and Garden Green. I added a piece of 3/8" Denim Ribbon under the sentiment then finished it off with five dots from the Classic Matte Dots pack. It's a very pretty card.

I used the same sketch along with the Simply Succulents stamp set, and matching Potted Succulents Dies to make another card. This one is an A2 Side Fold. I colored it using Sponge Daubers as well.

It won't be long before the new January - June 2022 Mini Catalog goes live. The Sale A Bration campaign will also start January 4, 2022. Get set for some fabulous FREE products.

Thanks for joining me today!

Hello, and welcome. I created this card using the cute Nuts About Squirrels stamp set along with pieces of designer paper from the Beauty Of The Earth Pack. I followed the parameters set from a weekly episode of Craft Roulette on You Tube that required the following:

    1. Lil' Chubby (4" x 8" slimline card base)

    2. Warm Colors

    3. It's A Sign

    4. Crumpled Paper

The Thick Whisper White Card Base is an 8" x 8" piece scored in half at 4". Layer one is a piece of Misty Moonlight Card Stock that measures 7 3/4" x 3 3/4". The designer series paper is 7 1/2" x 3 1/2" with another piece that I crumpled to meet the parameters that measures 7 1/2" x 1". I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of woodgrain from the Tasteful Textiles pack, and cut the sides to look like a sign. I added Stampin' Dimensionals to all the images to make them pop. It was a fun card to make. I think I'm going to give it to my husband for his birthday because he is so annoyed by squirrels, lol.

Craft Roulette airs every Friday evening at 6:30 Central Time on You Tube. You should check it out. It's a fun way to make us step outside our crafty boxes.

Hello, and welcome! I created this card using the pretty Gorgeous Leaves stamp set, along with a sentiment from the Best Year stamp set. The base card is the largest size pre-made card from the Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, and measures 4" x 6". I added a scrap of woodgrain from the In Good Test 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper pack, and finished it off with three dots from the Brushed Metal Adhesive Backed Dots. It came together easily, and was pretty quick as well.
