Simple Birthday Card with Decorative Mask Background

 Hello everyone,

Well, another long break from blogging sorry! Seems to be a pattern with me. Better to do some than none at all I hope? ;-)

Today I want to share a really simple birthday card with you. This was so easy to do but I love the effect. Our decorative masks are so much fun. Just use your sponge brayer and away you go!

I even made a little video for you which is only about 6 minutes long. I hope you enjoy.

Leave a Little Sparkle Unicorn Card

Hi friends,

I've had another go at videos! Yay! My aim this year is to film and upload more videos for you. Let's see if I can stick with it and improve as I go.

This first one is a quick share about one of the popular cards from my January classes.  This sweet Unicorn card uses the Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set and Stitched So Sweetly dies.  What do you think? Leave me a comment to tell me if you like it :-)

Parcels & Petals - thank you cards

I love to make and send thank you cards to my fabulous friends and customers.  I really appreciate them choosing to spend their hard-earned money with me.  For my September customers I chose the Parcels & Petals stamp set to make their cards with. I also sent them a pack of our cute Artisan Pearls (no longer available) as a bonus gift.

The Woven Heirlooms designer series paper was perfect for this project - I really like the Rococo Rose and Sahara Sand piece.  I've teamed it up with Granny Apple Green to bring a little brightness to it.  The Stitched Shapes dies are used A LOT in my craft room - especially the circles.
I don't always come up with my own card designs from scratch - I found a card I liked on Pinterest and then modified it to suit the colours and papers I wanted to use. Do you do that too?

The floral imagery in this set is lovely - its kind of a speckled and mottled look. Very "forgiving" (as in, you don't have to stamp it perfectly and it will still look good!)

New 3D Embossing Folders - what you need to know!

This year (2019) Stampin Up ended their partnership with Sizzix - this means that Sizzix no longer manufactures our dies and embossing folders.

How does this affect you?  Well, our new 3D embossing folders are slightly thinner than our previous ones made by Sizzix.  This means that if you own a Sizzix Big Shot machine (like we used to sell) these new thinner folders don't "fit" the same way.  You either need to add some extra sheets of card stock as a 'shim" to make it thick enough, OR, purchase our new 3D Embossing folder plate. You use it in place of your normal cutting plate. It is a bit thicker than a normal plate - therefore just right for using with our new folders.  Its even been made blue in colour so you can tell it apart from your normal clear cutting plates.

How will you know if you need to use this special plate for not?  If the 3D embossing folder you have purchased from me (Stampin' Up!) does not say Sizzix on it, then it is likely our new style folder and will need this new plate.  If you purchased your embossing folders some time ago and they say sizzix on them, just use the normal clear plate with it.

I'm thinking I might start marking my new style folder with a blue sticker or blue pen marking so that I remember to use the special blue plate with them.

The new blue plate is $17.50. Let me know if you'd like me to order one for you or click the images/links below to shop online.
