Merry Mistletoe is one set that is from the Annual Catalog that has just been an absolute favorite of mine! The deer himself is just darling and the sentiments are just as versatile! I made this card for one of my annual Christmas Stamp a Stack of cards class. There is also a whole Be Merry suite (pg. 113) of coordinating goodies to make your creations a snap!
I just ran the card base through the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing folder (be sure your folder seam is going in towards the rollers and not the side). I then cute 2″ by 4″ piece of the Be Merry DSP and snipped the end with the Triple Banner Punch.
I stamped the deer in Chocolate Chip and then cut him out with the Layering Squares and a matching scalloped background.
You can see the Dimensionals really make this pop off of the card for extra dimension! I topped it off with a Rhinestone colored with a red sharpie and a little ribbon.

I fell in love with the special edition Host set from last month! Merry Patterns is a stunning set that you can create several different scenes with one set. And it has great 2-step stamping! The deer in the sweater is my favorite! I decided to use silver embossing powder to create his image. It’s paired with the Year of Cheer specialty DSP, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Grey. Just gives you a cold and wintery feel!

I have seen so many of these cute eclipse cards! I finally had to make one! This is the technique for my November’s stamp club! It’s super simple too!
You will need the Large Letter Framelits to make this card. (You can also use any bold image dies as well.) I am a person who likes to eyeball placement of dies, so using the Magnetic Platform make this a snap! I knew right away that I wanted to use this wonderful Year of Cheer Specialty DSP! I just love the thickness of the paper and the beautiful foil images. Another benefit of this DSP is that you get 3 pieces of each of the 4 designs (single sided designs). It’s great for making bags, boxes, cards, and tags too!
Line up your letter dies on the DSP or pre-stamped paper.
Run them through the Big Shot and carefully remove them from the dies if needed.
A dark background is preferred to create the shadow effect. I placed Basic Grey behind my DSP with the letters cut out.
Mount the DSP/Mat piece to the card base. I used Dimensionals to give my ribbon some room in the back of the mat.
Place Foam Strips on the back of the letters and them right over the cut out letters.
A little ribbon and it’s done!
I can’t wait to make some signs with this technique too! Just think of the cute gifts you can create with this technique!

Pick a Pumpkin is an adorable bundle to create all your fall cards! It even has jack o’ lantern faces for Halloween projects! I didn’t realize how much could be made using this set! The Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits really spoke to me! I immediately thought of using Copper Foil with the lined pumpkin! Look how cute it is!
I don’t mind fussy cutting items out, but I love it when there are coordinating dies that make these cards a snap! I highly recommend investing in the Magnetic Plate for the Big Shot! It really helps keep the dies in place and is a sanity saver!
I used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder to create the texture on the Early Espresso piece. I used a variety of cut out shapes with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Crushed Curry to make it feel like fall! My Stitched Shapes Framelits are my go to for sentiments. I love the extra detail that it adds to your card!
I topped it off with a little Wink of Stella and some linen thread! I love how it turned out! This could also be a great masculine card too!
At Home With You is a classic set that will carry you through many occasions! It has elements of summer, spring, fall, Christmas, and house warming! My favorite part of this card is that you can open the door to reveal the sentiment! How clever!
TIP: The At Home Framelits have cut outs for all the stamped elements for decorating the door. The door has 2 pieces (3 if you count the window cut out); they layer inside one another. The smaller die has one edge that doesn’t have a cutting surface, but instead it scores. This is what helps make your door hinge. Just be sure it’s on the correct side so your door opens correctly.
I used a blender pen and Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, and Smoky Slate to color in the elements. I did add some Wink of Stella to the sunflower centers and the lanterns.
The girls from stamp club loved this card!

I love sewing projects and would love to learn how to make quilts! So, when I saw the Christmas Quilt suite, I had to have it! It’s filled with cute felt embellishments, a gorgeous Designer Series Paper pack, stamp set, and coordinating dies!
This card has a few extra steps, but the result is so worth it! I used a Crumb Cake base and stamped the stitched flower randomly with Crumb Cake ink. I then cut out the small flower with the Real Red piece before I ran the Real Red piece through with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. (I love to save paper when I can) What is nice about making this card is that you can make 3 of the quilt panels with what you cut out. I took 3 different pieces of the DSP (cut to 3″x 3″) and ran all 3 through with the quilt block die. To make this a little easier to piece together, I used a Whisper White piece for a backing. I glued the outline part of the DSP to the Whisper White. Then I stamped the star portion of the quilt block. I then pieced the paper into the remaining places.
You will notice that after that part is finished, I ran it through the Quilted Embossing folder to add the stitched quilt top look. It’s finished off with 1/8″ Gold ribbon and a rhinestone. I just love how it turned out!

I am so happy that it is finally starting to feel like fall here in Texas! I wanted to create some cards to celebrate the season! One of the bundles that I will treasure for a long time is the Colorful Seasons bundle! It is a must have for a new stamper too! It covers all the seasons and has such beautiful dies to coordinate with the images! Not to mention the paper, color combos, and accessories to boot!
Part of my monthly stamp club includes a technique. The members get a sample of the technique and a small blurb that explains how to create it again. When they first join, they receive a journal to put these in so they have it to look back on for a handy (and pretty) reference!
This card plays up the Emboss Resist technique. I just switched the embossing powder to Copper! I then used Sponge Daubers to rub Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler. (in that order) I started with the middle of the leaf towards the stem. I only used the Cherry Cobbler on the tips of the leaves. I then cut them out as well as one Copper Foil leaf.
I just love how the Copper Foil, Copper Embossing Folder, and Copper Thread make this card pop!

I LOVE the Cat Punch! It will serve as a fun punch even after Halloween is over. I used the Scalloped Top Tag Punch to create this cute treat holder!
These Mini Pizza boxes are way too cute! Perfect to hold cookies, small candies, gift tag, or 3×3 cards. Food safe.
And to finish it off, this cute cat card! I love the little rats running toward the cat! I added red dots for their eyes after I took the picture!
I LOVE this bundle! I have heard that the Painted Harvest Bundle has been our top seller from the Holiday Catalog! Do you need a copy mailed to you? Let me know!
I made this one for our monthly club. I stamped the smaller of the sunflowers with Pumpkin Pie and then followed it with Crushed Curry for the bigger flower. The center is Chocolate Chip and Wink of Stella. I also used Old Olive ink to stamp off the filler leaf stamp and used full strength ink for the leaf detail stamp. Next, I used a sponge with Early Espresso to distress the edges of the card stock and DSP. To add depth and texture, I added dimensionals and linen thread.
The color combinations with this set are endless! I have seen so beautiful cards and boxes made with this set!
World Card Making Day is coming! To help celebrate, Stampin’ Up! has a 2 promotions!
I couldn’t’ wait to play with the Quilted Christmas stamp set and Quilt Builder dies! We went on our annual Labor Day craft retreat weekend and I have a TON to show!! That was a much needed break from the long summer!
I just had my Team Meeting last week and here is the Make n Take we all made together! I recommend watching this video that Stampin’ Up! put together! It really showcases the different ways to use this set to maximize your investment!
I first ran the Garden Green piece through Big Shot with the Quilt Top Textured Embossing Folder. I love that you can use either side-both are pretty!! I then stamped the quilted star outline with a darker color, Garden Green. Then I used Pool Party and Lucky Lime Twist for the panels. I cut it out with the coordinating dies. The stitched part layers inside the outline die. That is what made me think to cut out the Real Red background piece. I finished it off with the sentiment on a banner and some White Baker’s Twine.
Cute and simple card!! Such a fun suite to play with! It also has these adorable Stitched Felt embellishments and matching DSP pack!
