October Team Stamp It Blog Hop

 Hello, my stamping friend and welcome to our monthly Team Stamp It blog Hop. The theme this month is Thanksgiving.This time I did not make a card. I wanted to create fall decorations instead. The color combo came from this year Holiday Catalog - Paisleys and Poises Suite. Delightful Dijon, Rich Razzelberry, Mint Macaroon and Cooper. I fell in love with this color combo as soon as I saw it, even so I would never imagine it will look good until Stampin Up! put it together.
My first project is a framed art:
The cool part of this is frame itself. It was created from 12 x 12 craft paper. It is light weight, quick to make and inexpensive as it uses just one sheet of paper.
Second project is a place card I will be using for Thanksgiving table decor. Just need to write a guest name on it (above the line).
I also wanted this place card to be a note card as well, so I can add personal message inside for each guest why we are blessed  to have them in our life. This is the inside of the card:
Now - a little favor/gift box:
Close up of the tag:
As you can see - I used the same element with 2 leaves, copper accent and rich razzelbery bow on all 3 projects. The box was created using box making board and using 8x8 measurements, I stamped paper before putting box together.
I had little left overs of Kraft paper - so I made few more cards (will be used as cards for dishes):
Can you believe I made all of the projects from 2 sheets of Kraft Paper: one sheet for frame, 8 x 8 piece for box, 8 x 4 (scored at 4) for card and 4 x 4 (scored at 2) for small place cards.
Let me know what you think. Is this color combo your favorite too? Are you in love with paisley and poises bundle? Please leave me a comment for a chance to win this awesome kit:

Continue hoping for more inspiration!

Thank You for stopping by!

October Paper Pumpkin is Here

Hello, my stamping friend.
It this time of the month again - when cute mystery box arrives. I love my Paper Pumpkin, and this month one may be the best one yet!
Fabulous shakers fall cards! Check this video:
I made 2 cards right away - exactly the way it was intended, no modifications. And they are fabulous:

And then I had some leftovers - punched out pieces. So I desired to put  them to use. This is my alternative one for this month:
Everything was included, even adhesive dots - so you only needed scissors. I can not wait to order the refill to create 8 more cards.
If You never tried Paper Pumpkin  - now is the good time to try. Next month kit will be Christmas one! As always - no obligations. You can cancel or skip a month. To subscribe - click HERE.  Contact me with any questions.

Happy Stamping!

From This To That - Acorny Thank You

Hello, my stamping friend.
I am exited to start sharing new series - From This To That. We all need a little inspiration when it comes to layout of the card. Using template as your guide will defiantly help.

Tip: Create a “window” on your Designer Series Paper using framelits or punches, then layer an image or greeting underneath. Try this template with several papers from the same collection and get a different look every time.
Here is my take on this template.  I am if Fall mood, and decided to use Acorny Thank You stamp and punch.

Group one:
Give it a try too.
Happy Stamping!

You Light Up my Life

Hello, my stamping friend.
Happy Sunday to you. I am taking a little break from Holiday creations and decided to use hostess set Pun Intended. We all need cards for men in our live, teenagers, just because cards to show somebody we appreciate them. I think this card can be just that card:
  • Dapper Denim: 4 ¼ x 11, scored at 5 ½ 
  • Whisper White: 4 X 2 ¾ 
  • So Saffron: 4 ¼ x 3, scrap for punching 
  • DSP: 2 x 5 ½ 
How TOs:
  1. Randomly stamp front of the card with a heart in Dapper Denim ink. Adhere piece of DSP in the center. 
  2. Stamp light bulb 3 times on whisper white piece with dapper denim ink positioning the center light bulb lower than two side ones. 
  3. Stamp sentiment on the bottom of whisper white in real red. 
  4. Stamp portion of the light bulb 3 times on scarp of so saffron in dapper denim ink. Punch with ¾ circle punch. 
  5. Adhere 3 circles over light bulbs stamped in whisper white making sure that image in so saffron aligns with the image on whisper white. 
  6. Adhere whisper white piece to so saffron, and then with dimenstionals to the card front. 
  7. Highlight portion of stamped image with gold Wink of Stella (heart, word love, top of light bulb) 
You can change Dapper Denim color for another to create different look. I think Sweet Sugarplam will look beautiful.
How to get this set?
This set is hostess set. You can only get it when you place $150 order and redeem your hostess dollars for this set (you will get $15 free dollars to spend and this set is only $9.50).
Option2. Place an order in my store using hostess code YPFZQFTU for $90 or more. I will send this set to you withing 10 business days for free.
Hostess code for the month of October is YPFZQFTU.

Happy Stamping!

Paisleys & Posies

Hello, my stamping friend.
It was a while when I posted last time. Last week we were extremely busy because of the hurricane Mathew. First - preparation, than actual hurricane  and all weekend to clean up after it. We got lucky, not major damage, no fallen trees and only lost electricity for about 15 hrs. Some of my friends still do not have power till now!
Because of all this - I did not stamp that much. But I have a card to share with you using Paisleys & Posies bundle. At first - it was not on my must have list. And than I started to see different samples and possibilities of this stamp set. Of course - the main one is to create your own unique background.


  • Whisper White Thick Card Stock: 8 ½ X 5 ½
  • Whisper White: 3 ¼ X 5 ¼ + scrap 
How Tos:
  • Stamp images randomly on 3 ¼ X 5 ¼ piece of Whisper White as shown 
  • After stamping, cut 1” piece off of bottom (this layer will be “split” on card front) 
  • Stamp a couple images on scrap paper and cut out with framelits 
  • Adhere the 2 stamped pieces to the card front using dimensionals. Place them 1/8” down from the top fold and 1/8” up from the bottom edge 
  • Stamp “words” in between the layers on the card base 
  • Adhere the “cut out” pieces randomly using dimensionals
Happy Stamping!
