Use a 1/2″ wide scrap of Whisper White, about 3″ long and stamp the sentiment from the So In Love stamp set in Rose Red ink, or a color that coordinates with your pretty paper. Then trim it to about 2-1/2″ and adhere it in the bottom right corner with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
This layout and sentiment is a wonderful way to celebrate love for a wedding or anniversary, as well as for Valentine’s Day. Try a different paper or color combo and see what you can create today!
Today I have a beautiful lace design for a Valentine, Wedding or Anniversary card.

Just click the photo below to get to the Stampin’ Up! catalog page where you will find the Sale-a-Bration, Occasions and Annual catalog links. The Delicate Details stamps set is on page 9, and the gorgeous metallic ribbon comes in a pack of silver and gold on page 11 in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
Before adhering the white layer, stamp your lace pattern and attach the Silver Metallic ribbon. The Delicate Details stamp set features 5 stunning lace stamps which can be used alone or in endless combinations. Here four of the five stamps were used with a large glass block and stamped twice in Stampin’ Up! Sahara Sand ink to create this pattern with an antique feel. Then the metallic ribbon was attached by wrapping it around the edges of the white layer and using a little Snail adhesive to adhere it on the back of the panel.
The Happy Anniversary sentiment was heat embossed in Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso embossing powder, which is now retired. If you don’t have any, simply stamp a sentiment in your favorite ink color.
With the Thanksgiving holiday this week, there’s no better time than now to think about the people in your life that you’re grateful for, and let them know what they mean to you. This easy card we created in class this month can be sent for Thanksgiving, or really any time of year!
Today’s card is one we made at card class last week and features the Stampin’ Up! Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the baby bear from the Fa-La-La-La Friends stamp set. Isn’t he cute in his Christmas pajamas?
Glue the 6 squares evenly spaced
onto the Garden Green layer. HINT: attach the two end squares, leaving a ¼”
margin at top & sides, then center 1 square between them in the top row.
Then do the bottom row so the squares are ¼” from the bottom of the Green layer
and lined up with the top row.
Add 3 random rhinestones wherever they look best on your small squares.
NOTE: the 1” square punch used to punch the square for this card is currently on the Stampin’ Up! Clearance Rack, while supplies last. The original price is $16, on clearance for $9.60. It’s a great tool for cutting small squares to use up your small scraps, as these small pieces are difficult to cut with the trimmer.The Merry Mice stamp set is on sale as part of the Stitched from the Heart promotion. You can see the newStitched Shapes framelits diesand the stamp sets that are on sale only in November here.
When you’re looking for stamping inspiration, start with the Stampin’ Up! catalogs! They’re full of ideas for color combinations, card layouts, gift packaging and more. Last week we were inspired by this simple and elegant Christmas card on page 48 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog:
Of course, we changed it up just a bit, and this is our version:
Tie 1/8″ gold ribbon at the top of the
card, putting a glue dot under the bow to hold it in place.
**HINT: If your card base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, you won’t be able to tie the ribbon around the card. So just cut it long enough for the front of the card and attach it with a couple of mini glue dots, then make a separate bow and attach it to the ribbon with another mini glue dot. Ask me how I know this 🙂

Just a few pieces of pretty paper, some ink and a stamp set are all you need to create this quick card from last week’s class. Or you can step it up a notch with the Stampin’ Up! Festive embossing folder!
When we gathered earlier this week for the Shimmer and Shine Christmas card class, we made this card featuring the Stampin’ Up! This Christmas Designer Series Paper and the greeting from the Jar of Cheer stamp set. There are lots of layers, but it’s quite easy to stamp and assemble!
Attach this square to the center of the DSP as shown.
Die cut a Basic Black 2-3/8″ circle with a framelit and layer it in the center of the Mint Macaron square.
Stamp ‘Wishing You a Season of Cheer’ from the Jar of Cheer stamp set in Garden Green ink on a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock.
Punch the stamped sentiment out with a 2″ circle punch and adhere it to the center of the black circle and your card is complete!
We hope you’ll give it a try! The ‘This Christmas’ Designer Series Paper featured here is a great option for all of your Christmas cards. There are 24 double-sided sheets in a package, and they’re thinner than most of the DSP. So you can make a LOT of cards with just one package and even with the layers, they are not too heavy for mailing! Come back tomorrow to see another sample!
