It’s almost as much fun getting handmade cards in the mail as it is creating them! This card came from my team member Kathy Blume. It features the Over the Moon stamp set (so stinkin’ cute), the Buffalo Check background stamp, and We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set. It’s a lot of fun mixing and matching stamps and products from different sets.
And, if you like a little bit of coloring, the cow is a fun image to be creative with. Use your Stampin’ Write Markers, your Stampin’ Blends, or watercolor pencils.

When people come to my classes and events, I always like to treat them with a little packet created with Stampin’ Up! products. Mostly, it’s candy or chocolate, but I changed it up this time and made lip balm holders featuring the Sailing Home Bundle of products.
This started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. It’s scored (on the longer edge) at 2 1/4-inches from each edge.
The center piece measures 1 inch by 3 inches and is scored at 3/4 inches on each side. I used a bone folder to loosen the fibers on the paper so it has a little bend where you can place the lip balm once the edges are attached. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Tear and Tape and applied a little piece on each of the 3/4-inch pieces. I matched up the score marks and adhered the center piece to the inside middle of the card stock. I’ve included a photo below of the finished inside.
I decorated the front, back, insides, and back spine of the holder using pieces of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I recommend using the Tear and Tape here again, to ensure the paper is stuck down well. I decorated the outside with a verse from the Sailing Home stamp set (stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand card stock and die cut with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits).
When the holder is closed, I punched a small circle through both sides and tied a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine to close the packet.

Each month, Stampin’ Up! has issued a #simplestamping challenge. Create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This month, the bonus is to add Designer Series Paper. That’s hardly a challenge! The Designer Series Paper is so beautiful, it’s just hard to choose which one to use.
This card features the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper. The colors and designs just stand on their own.
The base is Crush Curry that measures 5 1/2 inches by 11 inches and is scored and folded in the middle. The second layer is Blackberry Bliss cut at 5 1/4 x 4. And the See a Silhouette measures 5 x 3 3/4 inches. The sentiment comes from Stampin’ Up!’s Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.
The purpose of the challenge is to demonstrate that simple cards can be beautiful, and it’s an easy way to get started stamping.
Thanks for stopping by today!
