Heaven Knows

Heaven knows

Here's a quick and easy card that gets its "wow" factor from a simple sponging techinque.  I created a mask by using a piece of typing paper run through the Big Shot with the largest of the Deco Labels Collection Framelits.  It's pictured below after I've used it.


I simply laid the mask over top of my Whisper White cardstock and used a Soft Sky stamp pad and a Sponge to sponge color inside the mask.  Keeping the mask in place, I stamped the flower from Fabulous Florets stamp set in StazOn Ink within the frame.  When I removed the mask, I had this pretty main image created.

I loved the sentiment from Blessings from Heaven stamp set to coordinate with this card.  It could be used for so many different purposes – friendship, encouragement, birthday or just thinking about someone. 

And be prepared to see LOTS of lined envelopes in my posts!  I'm totally hooked on the Envelope Liners Framelits.  It's so quick to coordinate your card and envelope for that added polish!  The various Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks found on pg. 152 of the Annual Catalog are the perfect purchase.  Here I used the Subtles Collection to coordinate the Soft Sky paper in the envelope with the ink used on the card.

New Envelope Liner Framelits Dies

Note card thank you

Today I'm showing you yet another idea for the Stampin' Up! note cards.  In case you missed them, I've posted other ideas HERE and HERE.  But I also want to introduce you to the new Envelope Liner Framelits Dies.  They're going to take your beautiful handmade cards to the next level by coordinating the designer paper on the card and lining the envelope, too.  Three different sizes in the set line Stampin' Up!'s square envelopes, note cards and medium envelopes.

Here's a great video on how to use these nifty new tools!

  • This simple card uses Quantrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, but of course, any of the gorgeous Stampin' Up! designer papers will work.
  • I've cut a simple tag for the sentiment using a Chalk Talk Framelit then stamped the "thank you" from the hostess-exclusive stamp set called Express Yourself.  This handy stamp set lets you say just about anything!
  • Not only can I coordinate the paper on envelope and card, but I can also coordinate paper and stamp set AND punch!  I've used Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating Mosaic Punch to add the little mosaic piece to the thank you tag.  BUNDLE & SAVEbuy the Mosaic Madness stamp set and punch together and save 15%!

Note card thank you 2

As long as we're all about coordination today, I even stamped down the left side of the envelope.  In minutes you have a pretty impressive card!

Stampin’ Up! video of our trip to Fiji

In May, I was fortunate to earn the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to FIji – it was truly a trip of a lifetime!  Words cannot express how wonderful this trip was, but maybe Stampin' Up!'s new video can give you a little taste of it!  I'm not in the video – guess I wasn't "in the right place at the right time"!
