Kindness & Compassion Condolence Card

Layered Leaves

Condolence cards are the most difficult cards to make but I recently needed one to send to my cousin’s wife.  Matthew passed away several weeks ago and he was only 48 years old. Far too young to leave us. 

I love everything about the Kindness & Compassion stamp set.  It’s always difficult finding the right words to say to someone who’s experiencing extreme grief and convey that you care. This set has a variety of beautiful sentiments written in a beautiful font. Plus it includes “thank you.”

Kindness & Compassion

 

I used a base of Thick Whisper White with another layer of Whisper White, embossed with the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  The larger Night of Navy oval underneath it was cut out using the Layering Ovals Dies.

Snowman Season

Snowman Season

Oh my gosh, how cute are these snowmen from Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper? When photographing the card, I hoped I could capture the beautiful sparkle on all the snowmen. Funny thing is, when I saw this paper in the catalog, I didn’t initially buy it.  It didn’t jump out at me as something I had to have.  But then someone I know mentioned how cute it was so I purchased it and I was absolutely NOT disappointed! If you’d like to see in more detail, all the designs in this package of paper,  go to my Stampin’ Up! online store, here.  Click the “+” on the image of the paper to make the photo larger.  Then, you’ll see arrows and you’ll be able to scroll through all the designs.  

Let It Snow

 

The base of my card is Thick Whisper White.  When the base of my card is white, I always use our Thick Whisper White rather than our regular Whisper White.  The next layer is our Real Red cardstock. The sentiment  is from the stamp set Snowman Season and was also stamped in Real Red ink and cut out using the Merry Christmas Dies.  It’s a super simple card to make and super cute with all the sparkly snowmen!

October Online Card Class

October Online Card Class Host Code

On a side note, yesterday my daughter and son-in-law had to say goodbye to their precious dog, Jake. Losing an animal is never easy because they are our family. I cried a bucketload of tears yesterday. One day Jake was doing fine and the next, he was gone. He was the most gentle animal and full of so much love.  Here’s a picture of Jake and my youngest grandson about a month ago.  Go hug your furry loved ones and let them know how much they mean to you.   

 

Online Card Class Extended One More Day

Happy Monday! 

October Online Card Class

Last week was not my best week for blogging! I did write a blog post for Wednesday which announced my Online Card Class but it didn’t go out to all my subscribers until Thursday due to a problem with the program that sends out the emails.  I was able to figure out pretty quickly what the problem was able to fix it.  Then I was planning for another post on Friday only to find out that I couldn’t access all my photos because I had upgraded the operating systems on both my Mac desktop and laptop computer and it took quite some time to catalog thousands of pictures (yikes)!!  What can you do when technology fails you? Not much!! 

October Online Card Class Host Code

Today was supposed to be the last day to order my October Online Card Class, but because it was delayed a day, I’m extending it until tomorrow.  All the other deadlines will stay the same but you’ll have until tomorrow to place a $50 or more order using the host code EPZEKZXJ to receive my FREE online card class.  For more details, please click here

Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper

Wrapped in Plaid

Today I have an easy card featuring Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalog but first, I have a winner to announce! On Friday I offered Blog Candy (a make n take packet) for the project I shared. Thanks so much to everyone who left a comment! The random name drawn was Lesa! Congratulations, Lesa!!!!  (I will contact Lesa but if I don’t hear back from her within 24 hours, I will draw another name on Tuesday). 

I combined several new products from the Holiday Catalog to create today’s card.  The base of the card is Real Red.  The next layer is also Real Red and I placed it inside the Hammered Metal embossing folder using my die-cutting machine.  Then I added a piece of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper on the lower half of the Real Red. Before adhering it to the base, I wrapped the elegant Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8″ Ribbon around the cardstock/Designer Series Paper and tied a bow.  Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back before adhering it to the base.

Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper

 

Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Perfectly Plaid and stamped it in Shaded Spruce onto Whisper White cardstock.  It was cut out using the Merry Christmas Dies. All the products I used can be found in the supply list below!

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Treat Holders!

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month we’re sharing treat holders!

Gum Holder

My treat holder fits a pack of gum, perfectly! This is a project I’ve shared before but when you use brand new paper (I used Monster Bash Designer Series Paper), it becomes new again! Three months ago I joined Weight Watchers so I knew my treat holder couldn’t have chocolate in it (I LOVE chocolate) so I opted for a delicious pack of gum! 

Monster Bash Designer Series Paper gum holder

Monster Bash Designer Series Paper

This little treat holder couldn’t be easier to make! You’ll need to do a little scoring and a little cutting and that’s it.  It comes together really quickly! I don’t have a new video today creating my project using Monster Bash Designer Series Paper but I do have a video I made last year that will demonstrate how to make the holder and all the measurements (please note:  the Designer Series Paper and stamp set used in the video are no longer available).  You can find the video farther down in this post. 

Monster Bash Treat Holder

Gum Holders Monster Bash Designer Series Paper

I used Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie cardstock to create the holder. A strong adhesive is needed to assemble the box so I used Tear & Tape. There’s a little flap on the front of the box that is held closed with Glittered Organdy Ribbon. The sentiment sits on  Silver Glimmer Paper and both were cut out using our Layering Circle Dies.  Sometimes it can be tricky getting things to stick to glimmer paper so I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  To attach the glimmer paper and sentiment to the box, I added more liquid glue to the upper half of the circle. Our Every Season Punch Pack has a cute little bat that I cut out using Basic Black cardstock and adhered with a glue dot (you could use the glue again but the dot fits perfectly).  I used Snail adhesive to attach the Monster Mash Designer Series Paper to the holder but again, you could use liquid glue. 

This is the gum I used!

To Every Season Bundle

 

Blog Candy

Leave a comment today to be entered to win my blog candy! I’ll send one person all the paper and embellishments needed to create today’s project (you’ll need to supply your own stamp set, ink and adhesive). I’m sorry but I can only send to a U.S.A. address but all comments are welcome! The winner will be announced on Monday right here on my blog. If your name is drawn, you’ll be asked to email me your address. If I don’t receive a reply within 24 hours, I’ll draw an alternate winner who will be announced on Tuesday.

Just a Little Note to Say Hello

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Today’s card features Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper and Rococo Rose cardstock. Because this paper is so stunning, you don’t need much to create a quick and easy card! 

As of today, Feels Like Frost is currently on backorder but should be arriving in the warehouse next week.  It can still be added to your order and will ship when it’s back in stock. 

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

I love the sentiment which is from the stamp set A Little Lace.  I stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock using Rococo Rose ink. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop the sentiment up which I think makes all the difference!

All the supplies I used to create today’s card can be found below, as well as the measurements.

Feels Like Frost Note

Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper

Today’s card uses another design from our Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper.  I think everyone loves it because it’s currently on backorder but should be back in stock next week. You can still add it your order and when it’s back in stock, it will ship separately.

When using this paper for the first time, my goal was to see what I could make with it that wasn’t about the holidays. If you missed my other cards using this paper, you can see them here, here and here

 

The base of my card is Night of Navy and I combined it with Seaside Spray, one of our new In Colors this year. I used our Hammered Metal Embossing Folder to create the texture on the Seaside Spray cardstock. The Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper was cut out using our Stitched Shapes Dies.  The Night of Navy scalloped square was created using our Layering Squares Dies.  These two sets of dies coordinate perfectly together! The sentiment was stamped in Seaside Spray onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies.  The Night of Navy scalloped oval was also cut out using these dies.

All the products I used can be found in the Supply List below.
