Happy Monday and today’s share is a card that can be used for Christmas or general – perfect for a fellow crafter or seamstress! I give credit for the idea of this card to team member and friend, Rhonda Fawcett. I thought it was just so stinking cute, being a seamstress myself.
On page 4 & 5 of the Holiday catalogue, you can find Quilted Christmas Suite (or see below), but don’t think this set is just for Christmas! Other than the sentiments, this set is actually quite useful year round!
The shape of this spool card is made by using the Envelope Punch Board (makes 66 sizes of envelopes as well!) to create the little divets along the side.
Then simply embellish as you wish. I’ve used the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper along with the new Real Red Ribbon to create the “thread”. This cute flower also comes in the die set.
Oh and this is the best part!
How adorable is that little needle and spool of thread??! Those come in the die set as well. I love them!
I have done up an awesome wall art with this set that I’ll share in a few weeks, too.
I think you’d find a use for this set year round! Supply list below.
Thanks for stopping by! Check out my classes this week HERE.
The challenge round features colours that I wouldn’t naturally put together, but I do love this colour combination! How fun, fresh, and bright!
I was inspired by samples at a recent team event to give this sort of “shaker card” a try:
Instead of an acetate window, I’ve used netting or tulle here to suspend the sequins. Fun!
The flowers are from the Flower Ship stamp set, one that’s been a favorite for a few years. Pair this with the Pansy Punch for quick embellishments! But you’ll notice the leaves are new – this is the new Leaf Punch in the Holiday Catalogue.
This has been a fun colour combination to play with – something out of my “usual” recently! Enjoy the rest of the hop – Lou Kitzelman is next!

You’ve Got Style has been a very popular set in the recent Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and today’s project features these funny old ladies! Watch the video below to learn how to put together this quick and fun birthday card for someone who’d appreciate a laugh:
I chose Melon Mambo as my accent colour for the black and white base, but of course, you can choose any colour you think your friend would love.
Take a few minutes to see how quick this one is to finish and how to colour her up in no time:

You know that deck chair that is showing up all over the net? (and here on my blog!) Well the Colorful Seasons Bundle is actually quite a large die set that includes a scallop edge, the chair, leaves, snowflakes, and these beautiful flowers and branch:
I think this branch is absolutely gorgeous.
On this project, I wanted everything to be black and white with just the flowers standing out. The pearls give it just a tiny bit of 3D to accentuate the focal point, too.
This would make a lovely sympathy card, or change up the words to be a thank you or birthday card.
I have used the new Garden Trellis Embossing Folder for the second layer in this project. I thought it’s not only a pretty pattern, but it echos the clean feeling of these blossoms and branch.
This project is reasonably quick to complete. I was thinking it would also make a super gift pack: do up a set of these, each card with a different sentiment from the bundle and each card with a different colour of flower. Package them up together for an attractive gift.
Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to have you in a class with me this August!
