A 3-D Card Made From Stampin’ Up! Stamps

Hope you all are having a great week so far.  This past weekend I decided it was time to back up the photos on my phone and computer and put them on a CD just in case something would happen and I would loose a thousand plus memories.  That happened to me once and I was so upset, and I never want to go through that again.

I came upon this card that I made using one of the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Flower Patch.

What I loved about this stamp set was that it also had the framelits dies which made it so easy to cut out the images with the Big Shot and not a scissor.

I know that this stamp set is no longer available but let me tell you, there are so many beautiful flower stamps in our catalog right now that have coordinating framelits dies.  For example Bouquet Blooms, or Falling Flowers and even Flourishing Phrases has a really pretty flower and leaves that coordinate with Flourish Thinlits.   These are just a few of the beautiful stamp sets that make card making so easy.

If you haven’t looked through the new Stampin’ Up! catalog, you should visit TheIslandStamper.stampinup.net and see all of the wonderful stamps, papers and accessories they offer for every occasion.

Have a Great Week!

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Stampin’ Up! Jar Of Love Card Idea

Did you ever look at one of the samples in our catalog and think to yourself “there is no way that I would be able to do that”  Well let me tell you that you can.

Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy to duplicate since they offer everything to make the most perfect cards every time 🙂

This stamp set Jar of Love is Awesome! because you can make such a variety of different cards with just one stamp set.  There are so many fun sayings and images of flowers, fish, hearts and fireflies/bees and confetti.



The Jar of Love stamp set along with the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies are the perfect match for creating greeting cards, and even making embellishments for a scrapbook page.

I had so much fun making this card and you can too!

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Christmas Cards Using Cuttlebug Embossing Folders & Stampin’Up Stamps

12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World

On the first Day of Christmas…

Making handmade Christmas Cards and Christmas Crafts while listening to Christmas Carols, does it getter better then this?  This year I wanted to make different kinds of Christmas Cards, what I mean is not all the same.  So for my first 12 cards I used a stamp set from Stampin’ Up that I got years ago.  I stamped the image using tuxedo black memento ink and colored in the design with Copic sketch markers.  I had some A2 cards that I purchased at Michaels that had such small wintry prints in soft blue and purple colors that I decided to use them.

For the inside sentiment I used a Merry Christmas stamp  from Uptown Rubber Stamp.

Of course that could have been all I needed to complete this Christmas card, but I had to add something else.  I decided what better then to layer cardstock.  I used my Cuttlebug with embossing folders. One layer was with a Snowflakes and the other layer with Swiss dots.  These embossing folders did the trick.  I then put them all together using my pink ATG adhesive gun.

Look how cute my first dozen Christmas Cards turned out.


Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
