FINALLY HERE: Christmas Whimsy Card KIT !!
8 Holiday Cards with Gold trimmed envelopes
The season is changing!! Create autumn designer paper yourself!! These colors are: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake; Old Olive Marker for splatter. Base is a full sheet of Very Vanilla Card Stock.
Choose medium to small images, like this lovely Gorgeous Leaves Stamp Set #153365. Start with the larger images and stamp randomly, including off the edges. Fill in with smaller images. Splatter any unstamped areas with a waterbased marker. Done.
Cut your designer paper and create cards! One of my easy, eye-catching layouts is this triangluar cut: cut paper 5-1/2 x 3", then cut corner to corner to create two triangles. Assemble as shown and stamp your sentiment in the center on the base card. Base card is Crushed Curry color.
When you make your own designer paper, you can customize the season or occasion, colors, and images! TRY IT!!
Christmas Season Stamp Set #156293 is so versatile it creates winter Birthday Cards!! This is a simple masking technique. Please watch the short video posted below.
It creates easy thank you cards, too. This is the same masking technique as in the video.

Sweet & Simple note card and envelope!
Here is the SECRET:
Blending Brushes #153611, three for $12! These velvety brushes make blending a breeze! Select a die image to create as a silhouette. Apply an Adhesive Sheet #152334 to the back of any card stock and die cut your shape. Position the die cut shape onto a card front. Use a Blending Brush to collect ink directly from the ink pad. Rubbing in circular motions, apply the color over and beyond the edges of the die cut. Build up the color intensity slowly until you have the desired effect. Remove die cut to reveal the silhouette! Remember to add an image to the envelope, too. SIMPLE!
Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes #159232 (mailable in US), Meadow Dies #155852 and Polished Pink Ink Pad #155712.
You could make lots of these in 15 minutes!!

Barb Faulkner, friend and Team Member, created this YUMMY easel birthday card using the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle with PUNCH #156244.

Cut the base card 4-1/4 X 11" and score at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". The easel needs a dimensionalized piece for support and here the Happy Birthday is popped up. Easy and impressive! Thanks for sharing, Barb!!

My ALL-TIME favorite way to package handmade cards as a gift, is this quick and easy TWO-POCKET CARD FOLDER! Here is my pattern that uses one full sheet of card stock. The Folder holds four standard cards or four note cards.
Embellish the front of the Folder as much or as little as you like. The main thing, REPEAT the colors and images used on the cards inside for a professional look.
Here are the four standard cards and envelopes in this Folder. The same crisp, snappy True Love Designer Paper #154281 was used on this entire project. I used the Medium Daisy Punch #149517 and used the small daisy-like print on each card. The accent is Silver Foil Paper #132178 and the little heart from the Dog Builder Punch #148543. The cards are fast and simple. Pick your favorite designer series paper and try this!

The Hydrangea Hill Suite #155985 is ELEGANT and let's you create any color blossoms you desire on card stock! These are "Z" fold cards cut 4-1/4 X 11" then scrored at 2-3/4 and 5-1/2". VERY EASY! I used the interesting Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate sheets #154574. The left one is Highland Heather color. The right one is flipped over to the silver side of the Mercury Glass Acetate.
I inked the flower image in Highland Heather and then "rolled" the edge of the image in Seaside Spray ink for a lovely realistic color combo. That is called the "ROCK & ROLL" technique.
I rarely make just one card at a time, so this one is varied from the other.
Cards this exquisite demand fancy envelopes! The top envelope has the flap covered in the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper #154570. The lower card I created from the same Designer Papers using the border print and here is how:
The Sand & Sea Suite #155980 works so well as a VELLUM CARD!! These pastels are difficult for me to photograph - it's much prettier in person.

Do these look familiar? These are desiccants used to keep pharmaceuticals and other products from getting damp. They contain a naturally occurring mineral, gypsum, to absorb moisture. Instead of throwing the packets in the trash, I toss the desiccant packets into the bottom of my Card Stock File! WHY? Because paper fibers absorb moisture and odors. Helps keep my paper supplies fresh!!

How cute are these overalls created with the All Dressed Up Dies #151665 that made the "purses" in my last post?!?!?!? I cased this adorable idea from Australian Demonstrator Michele Jutrisa. Michele has a 26 minute video you can view. I just had to make the coveralls with the From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper #151189!
Cut off the bottom and side panel of the die cut purse, then cut a "V" to create two legs using the simple measurements above.
Here is the backside so you can see how I crossed the two die cut straps.
ALL dies used are in the All Dressed Up Dies #151665. What a cute baby card, baby Valentine, toddler birthday or farmer card!! Just change the color!

TIPS for an exquisite sunrise or sunset on hand stamped cards:
*Use Shimmery White Card Stock #101910 and Sponge Daubers #133773
*Add saturated color to the card stock by collecting water based ink from an ink pad and SCRUBBING the ink all the way across the card with a dauber.
*For blended colors for the sky, OVERLAP the colors.
*Stamp silhouetted images on the finished base with BLACK ink
*Color in any open areas that should be silhouetted using a water based BLACK marker
*Layer onto a BLACK card base to pop colors
*PRACTICE & EXPERIMENT
Use plenty of ink, loading your dauber multiple times!
Any highlights, like on this gazebo roof, can be filled in with a black marker to create a true silhouette.
The NEW My Meadow Stamp Set #151650 is perfect for this technique!
These sentiments are from the NEW Peaceful Moments Stamp Set #151595.

LAST day of EXTRAVAGANZA!
NATURE'S BEAUTY Stamp Set #150528 was chosen by Shari Wicks, fellow demonstrator, to create this soft, sweet bunny card which I cased. LOVE IT!!
Do you recognize this Designer Paper?? It's MONSTER BASH DESIGNER SERIES PAPER #150447! It's PERFECT!
This is a 4 x 4" Gate Fold card: cut base card 11 x 4" and then score at 2, 3-3/4, 7-1/4, and 9". This fits in a Stampin' Up! medium envelope. (Don't use a square envelope because it's extra US postage.)
The realistic bunny is colored with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers: Light Smoky Slate and Ivory. To create the snow, I dotted on SNOWFALL ACCENT PUFF PAINT #150691 and sprinkled it with ICE STAMPIN' GLITTER #150445. Then I heated the puff paint with a heat tool and the glitter adhered. You can also adhere the glitter with SHIMMERY CRYSTAL EFFECTS #150892.
Sentiment is from MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL #147702. This is the perfect holiday card for a nature lover!! TRY IT!
