Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest stamp set - Hedgehog

This was a bonus card from my class last week.   I saw a few of these on Pinterest and knew I had to make one too.   Isn't he cute????

I used the Hello Friend from the Oh Happy Day kit that is in the Annual Catalog.   This kit is fabulous and once your done the kit, you still have the stamp set to use over and over.   The "hedgehog" is made from the Painted Harvest stamp set that is in the Holiday Catalog and it happens to be the #1 selling stamp set from that Holiday Catalog.   I know it was my #1 stamp set that I ordered from that catalog.   I used crumb cake and soft suede inks for the hedgehog and Early Espresso ink for the greeting and his face and Garden Green for the ferns.   The card stocks that I used were Very Vanilla, Garden Green, and Early Espresso.



To get your own Painted Harvest stamp set, you can purchase it from my Online Store  and have them sent directly to you.    Anyone placing an order of $50 before ship/tax this month, using the Hostess Code:  3FFJH7RT will receive one of my Acetate boxes with 4 shimmery Christmas Cards and envelopes.   The box is so Adorable if I say so..

Have questions, don't hesitate to contact me either leaving a comment here, email, text or call.

Hope you have a chance to get some Stampin' time today.

Beautiful you

Here's a birthday card I made for a friend, she also moved and settled on a new house too.   I used 2 stamp sets, Beautiful You and Star of Light.   I stamped the dancing lady on Whisper White and also on Eastern Palace DSP and "fussy cut" both out and glued one on the top of the other and then put her onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used the colors that are in the DSP, Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Tranquil Tide.

I used some of the greetings from the Beautiful You stamp set for the inside too.

Like this card to recreate it?   Don't have all the supplies?   You can purchase them from my Online Store  and have them sent directly to you.    Anyone placing an order of $50 before ship/tax this month, using the Hostess Code:  3FFJH7RT will receive one of my Acetate boxes with 4 shimmery Christmas Cards and envelopes.   The box is so Adorable if I say so..

All Things Thanks stamp set and Swirly Bird Thinlits

I have a Goal that I want to reach this year with my Stampin' Up! business.   I have posted that Goal everywhere I will see it each day....on my phone screen, iPad screen, laptop, post it notes everywhere and little reminders all around.

To reach my goal, I need to be better at a lot of things and not just searching the internet!   I made an Agile Software Development Board and have My goal at the top and things I need to do in order to reach that goal.   Posting on my Blog, Facebook and just having fun creating are things I am determined to be better at doing.  It's working!!!


I will start tonight, Wednesday November 8th,  8 pm EST, I will be doing a Facebook Live Video, at Stampin with Stampergirl....check it out!    Tonight I will share an quick and easy Christmas card and since I will be receiving my Stampin Blends today, I will share a little bit with those.

I needed a few cards, all the same and I wanted to use a specific greeting, so I went to the catalog and decided to Case the Catalog....Page 129.  I know there is a challenge group out on the internet somewhere that Cases the Catalog, if I find it today, I will post this card on the challenge....

Here is my card.   I cased a little from 2 of the cards shown.




Sending these out to some special people today.

I love how it turned out, using a color I don't typically use, Fresh Fig.

Here are the items I used to make this card:
 All Things Thanks stamp set
Swirly Scribbly Thinlits
Fresh Floral DSP Stack, Fresh Fig color
Fresh Fig ink
Fresh Fig 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon
Fresh Fig card stock (to cut out the swirly circle)
Starburst Punch
Whisper White card stock
whisper White Bakers twine


I love how Stampin' Up! coordinates papers, inks, card stocks, ribbons and embellishments all in their colors!

Stampin' Up! has DSP on sale this month and I needed some QUICK and EASY Thank You cards.

I love love LOVE this DSP.   The colors are gorgeous, just like the colors of the leaves on trees this time of year in the Northeast.   My card took about 3 minutes to create and I needed 12.   Within an hour of time, I made 12 cards, and even finished writing in half of them.
