Maui Achievers Blog Hop is live! We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world who have achieved the Stampin’ Up! bonus of the Maui trip. We want to celebrate this achievement by organizng a monthly hop which helps us to continue to inspire you creatively.
You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and get many amazing ideas. Be sure to visit them all.
My card below uses a blend of two stamp sets you can earn free during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion: The Gang’s All Meer and Sending You Thoughts.
Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration: The Gang’s All Meer and Sending You Thoughts
You can earn each of these stamp sets free with a $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) in the US. This is Stampin’ Up!’s most exciting promotion of the year, and it runs through March 31. See the Sale-A-Bration brochure here. (Look for more items to be added March 3.)
With my recent move to Mesa, Arizona, I was drawn to the cactus in the Gang’s All Meer selection. With a little watercoloring and a little masking, I made a desert come to life. I added a couple of pieces of patterned paper from the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.
Here are some of the measurements if you’d like to create this card at home. From the top down:
Shimmery White: 2 x 3 3/4″
Designer Series Paper: 2 1/2 x 3 3/4″
Cajun Craze: 2 3/4 x 3 3/4″

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Birthday Bash Blog Hop. This month’s hop features birthday cards. Everyone has a birthday, and we always need inspiration. If you are following along on the hop, you have arrived from Lisa Ann Bernard’s blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below, and continue to Heidi Collins’ blog.
Here are the projects I created for this month’s hop.
Stampin’ Up! Tropical Oasis Suite
My inspiration comes from many places, and a version of today’s card can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. It uses brand-new items from the Tropical Oasis Suite found on pages 38-40. There are many fun, beachy, tropical elements to the suite: from the stamp set to coordinating dies, the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder, Braided Burlap Trim, and the ever-so-cute Tropical Oasis Trinkets.
Here’s a link to the catalog: January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.
i just love everything tropical, so this suite spoke to me. My favorite flamingo images can be found on a couple of sheets of 12 x 12 paper included in the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. This birthday card could be used for both males and females.
The card is layered on a Crumb Cake base and includes a patterned piece from the Tropical Oasis DSP. I stamped the palm trees (found in the Timeless Tropical stamp set) with Early Espresso ink and cropped them with the palm tree die from the In the Tropics Dies. The birthday sentiment is stamped with Pretty Peacock ink onto Whisper White card stock. I punched the image with Stampin’ Up!’s Timeless Label Punch. I added a small strip of Mango Melody for some color and added a bit of Linen Thread tied in a bow.
In addition to the birthday card, I decorated one of Stampin’ Up’s Mini Pizza Boxes. This 3D item makes a perfect gift card holder!
I carried the birthday card design to the box, using pieces of the Tropical Oasis DSP, the palm trees, and the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by the Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop today. Please let me know if you have any questions about the card or the pizza box. I’m happy to help. Look for a list of products used (and links to my online store) at the very end of today’s post.

Happy New Year
I’ve also used the Gold Foil Sheets and the Layering Ovals Dies to create this peek-through window. I die cut the oval hole in the center before embossing the black card stock with the Tin Tile Embossing Folder. I also added some Gold Metallic Pearls.

Stampin’ Up! So Many Stars Christmas Card
Look what I found in my mailbox: A beautiful Christmas card using Stampin’ Up!’s So Many Stars Bundle. Going to the mailbox this time of year is so much fun! Mixed between the bills and the advertising fliers are Christmas and holiday cards. Some of them include notes and letters letting us know what’s been happening in friends’ and relatives’ lives in the last year. It’s great to catch up!
And, I just love that some of the cards are handmade. This beautiful card was created and sent to me by Angela Schmit. She used Stampin’ Up!’s So Many Stars Bundle which includes a stamp set and the coordinating Stitched Stars Dies. One of the key features of this beautiful card is the silver heat embossing on the largest Night of Navy star. There’s a lot of sparkle on this card with Silver Glimmer Paper stars.
This stamp set can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog. If you like this stamp set, So Many Stars, be sure to get it soon. It will be retiring from the lineup January 2. Purchase the stamp set and the dies as a bundle and receive a 10 percent discount. Please note: the So Many Stars Bundle is being discontinued so get it before it’s gone. (Here’s a link to the bundle in my online store here.) Good news, though, the Stitched Stars Dies, will be carrying over and will be available in the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog.
I hope you find your mailbox full of cards this holiday season. If you want to receive a card from me, reply to this post or email me at [email protected] I’d love to send you some happy mail.
See below for a list of products Angela used to create this card. Also, be sure to check out Stampin’ Up!’s Discounted Products and the Clearance Rack.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’d love to help you with your crafting needs and inspiration. I teach classes in the Mesa and Queen Creek areas of Arizona and would love to have you join me.
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.
