I used the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper and Celebration Tidings Bundle to pile on the layers for this simple Christmas card. I love the basic patterns and classic Christmas colors in the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. *One side is red and the other side is green. This paper is not just for Christmas!Stampin' Up!

I  added a little texture with the Subtle 3D Embossing folder on my envelope and Very Vanilla cardstock layer.

Grateful For You with Beautiful Autumn

I hope everyone had a great World Cardmaking Day yesterday! Let’s continue to celebrate the joy of card making and share our handmade cards with others! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I sell my cards online and at a local shop to raise money for our local chapter. (*You can click on my link for more information.) The shop owner called me yesterday and needs more cards so I know what I will be doing this week! 🙂

Many thanks to all who left comments yesterday! It seems the Thanksgiving card was the favorite! If you missed yesterday’s post you can view it HERE. The winner of the card drawing is…Karen in Florida!  Congratulations Karen! Email me your address and I will pop your card in the mail to you!

Today I’m sharing the thank you cards I sent to my customers who placed an order with me in September. I wanted something simple to make multiples but also wanted it to be special. This sentiment is one of my favorites!

I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder and the so soft Faux Suede Trim to add a bit of texture and highlight the sentiment from the Beautiful Autumn Bundle.

Are you wondering where I got the shape I used to stamp my sentiment? I used the Everyday Label Punch and just snipped the curves off each end for a different look.

O is for Organza Ribbon

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon found in the Occasions Catalog on page 23.  Stampin’ Up! used to carry Organza Ribbon and if you follow my blog, you know it was my absolute favorite ribbon. Do you know why? Well,  for starters it is classic; however, what makes it even better is that you can sponge it to be any color you want!!! My very first blog post on July 4, 2016 featured Organza ribbon that I colored to go with my party favors.  My second blog post was a Tuesday Tip on Ribbon Dying. You can Click HERE to view that post and see how easy it is to dye the organza ribbon. (I am happy to see my photography skills have improved since then.) I chose to keep my ribbon white for today’s Clean & Simple card. It is quick & easy to create and uses minimal supplies.

I am thrilled we have Organza ribbon again! Today’s card is a remake of one I shared during my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’.  *If you are new to stamping, this is a great series which focuses on the basics of stamping. There’s lots of tips and tutorials showcasing our products and tools. Here’s the card that was my inspiration for today. You can click on the image to get the card measurements and details as well as find out all about the different adhesives and what to use for different projects.

Here are some more projects showing ways I’ve used organza ribbon in the past.  *Our new Organza ribbon is 1/4″ but you can still use it in the same ways shown!
