Thankful for New Friends

Hello Stampers!

Since moving to Mesa, Arizona, three months ago, I’ve been attending a variety of networking meetings to meet new people and make new connections. I was introduced to this group about two months ago — O.N.E. Networking. It’s a fun group of business people and entrepreneurs who meet weekly to get to know each other, build relationships, and do business together when it makes sense.

I had an opportunity to present Tuesday. Instead of talking for 15 minutes, I brought a stamping project for eighteen! With help from two assistants (who are experienced stampers), we each created a treat packet with Stampin’ Up! inks, stamps, punches, and paper. And, I included chocolate!

It was such a fun morning! Everyone participated and were proud to create something handmade.

I am thankful to this group for their friendships and their willingness to try something new.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Enjoy your time with family and friends!

November Team Stamp It Blog Hop

Hello Stampers!

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s November Blog Hope where we’re featuring Christmas- and holiday-themed cards and projects. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop. Leave a comment with the hashtag #tstampitcontest for a chance to win a card kit.

My project today features the Faux Silk Technique. I stamped the trees image from Stampin’ Up!’s Winter Woods stamp set with Night of Navy ink onto a piece of white tissue paper. I let it dry completely and then crumbled the tissue paper in my hand. I straightened it a bit (but not too much) and then adhered it to a piece of Whisper White card stock using a glue stick purchased at a dollar store.

I then framed the tree image with a Silver Foil die cut using the Stampin’ Up!’s Stitched Rectangles. The sentiment comes from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set. I also stamped the Birch background stamp with Night of Navy ink onto the Night of Navy card stock, just to add a little dimension.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about this card or the Faux Silk Technique.

Again, visit all of the blogs on the hop. Congratulations to Janice Kincaid, last month’s winner.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle

Hello Stampers!

November is seen as the month of gratitude, giving thanks for those wonderful things in our lives. I’m thankful for the gift of Stampin’ Up!, being introduced to the craft about twenty-five years ago.

Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos Bundle has helped me create cards and small treat packaging to celebrate this month. The stamp set and coordinating punch can be used both as an apple and a pumpkin. Here, Dawn Seelhoff has created a card for offering thanks, focusing on the colors of Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite.

Come to Gather Thank You

Hello Stampers!

I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.

I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.

Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store where you can purchase any of the products to create this card at home. Shoot me an email or message if you need help with dimensions, colors, or technique.

Thanks for stopping by today!
