The hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season is here!!! Shopping, List Making, Wrapping, Decorating, and Baking are being done each day!

The best part about this kit….wait there are LOTS of best parts! First of all, it is all inclusive with everything you need except scissors so no need to make a huge mess. Just get the box of tags and some scissors are you are ready to go! Next, it is super simple. There is no stamping with this kit so very minimal messes and it is very quick! You can follow the directions or create as you wish. Have fun with it and mix and match the tags.
Another fun thing about this kit is that you can add them to a card base and have a fabulous card as well! So if you decide that you don’t need that many tags or you need to whip up a quick card, simply pull out this kit and you are golden!
Snag one of these Festive Tags kits today and perhaps another one for a friend or family member. You can create them together over coffee or hot cocoa and enjoy some time together while still getting ready for the Holiday Season!
I am all for a simple card design that can be used with many different colors, patterns, stamp sets, etc. This one is just that!!! Pick your favorite colors and designer paper! Grab a stamp set and your favorite punch/die and let’s get started!
I started with a Boho Blue card base. Next, I took a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of the 2023-2025 In Color Designer Paper and layered it onto Pebbled Path cardstock (1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″). This strip can be added in the middle of the card front or towards the bottom like mine above! Then I took the Circle Saying Stamp Set and the coordinating Circle Punch for the greeting! Add this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture! To finish it off, I added some ribbon and dots!
For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Basic White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. On opposing corners, I stamped the floral image in Boho Blue! I love how the flowers frame this piece and add a little bit of decoration! Don’t forget to stamp your envelopes as well!
Check out the supplies listed below so you can recreate this card. I challenge you to at least try out this simple card design with your stamping supplies! It’s simple and fabulous!!!
Cupcakes are my favorite! When I saw the Circle Sayings Stamp Set with a cupcake in it, I got excited! Here I created a card using the same concept but did one more feminine and one more masculine! Cupcakes For All!!!
This card can be created simple or stepped up! In the sample above, I used a Thick Basic White card base. Then I added a layer of cardstock that was embossed with the polka dots from the Basics Embossing Pack! You could also just do a colored cardstock base and no embossing for a simpler version!
Next, I die cut a rectangle with the Deckled Dies and stamped the cupcake all over it! Again, if you wanted a simple version, you could just cut a rectangle. The colors I used were Highland Heather and Fresh Freesia for the card on the left. The card on the right uses Pool Party and Lost Lagoon! Finally, I stamped the cupcake and greeting on Basic White and used the coordinating Circle Punch to punch it out! Simple and quick with a punch which is why this card is fun to make multiples of! The placement of the pieces on the card front is all up to you! Have fun with it! On the purple card, I added some Wink of Stella to the cupcake and some Iridescent Rhinestones!
On the inside of the cards, I decorated with some more stamping! First, I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting in the darker color and then stamped off once for the cupcake so it was a lighter shadow! Don’t forget to stamp the envelopes too!!
What color combination would you use to create this card? Let me know in the comments below and I hope you create a card like this one! After all, cupcakes for all!
Which do you prefer – Sunrise or Sunset?!?!? Honestly I am a bit torn but if I had to pick just 1, it would be sunrise. I love that early morning crispness, the birds chirping, and that feeling of newness. It’s a brand new day to be amazing! I love that! Although I will say right now, I’m not happy to see sunrises because that means the kids woke me super early. LOL
This beautiful card uses the Circle Sayings Stamp Set and coordinating Circle Punch! I am loving this bundle WAY more than I ever thought I would! It’s just super versatile and I love that birthday greeting! It is small and scrolly and fabulous!
I used Azure Afternoon for the card base as well as that color from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack! Next, I layered this with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock! I thought about coloring all of the waves and everything but then I stopped at just the sun and I love it! What do you think?!?! For this card, I used Daffodil Delight Light Stampin’ Blends. If you want a bit brighter or more yellow/orange, go for the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blends! Another option is to use both and really highlight the sun! 🙂
Check out the supply list below if you wish to recreate this card! It can be a sunrise or sunset….it’s all up to you!
Summertime calls for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors, right?!?! I love the outdoors but allergies and mosquitoes also love me so we try to find a balance! This month I am creating with the Gone Fishing Bundle and having lots of fun! These cards are fabulous, masculine, and perfect for lots of different man occasions!!! Join in the fun with the Online Card Class!
I really struggle with masculine cards so I like to create and entire class dedicated to that. This time I went with the Let’s Go Fishing Suite from the NEW Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog! The outdoorsy feel and rich color combinations are just perfect! This class will be offered in person (June 29th) and online (June 19th). If you wish to participate in the Online Class, check out all the details and ways you can stamp along here!
Here is one of the samples we will be creating in the card class! You will notice some New In-Colors like Pebbled Path and Wild Wheat as well as some classics of Mossy Meadow and Basic Vanilla! I have to admit I haven’t stamped with Basic Vanilla in what feels like ages. It seems all of the designer papers have used Basic White! It was nice to switch it up for a change!
Hi! I’m Laura and I LOVE monkeys. I like REALLY love them! When I was a kid, I said that was what I wanted to be when I grow up! The kids have lots of monkey toys because I’m trying to push it on them as well! LOL When I saw the Little Monkey Stamp Set and coordinating Punch, I knew I had to have it!!!
Here is a quick and simple note card that I created! The hardest part of this card is the coloring and that’s not even hard! I would call it more like time consuming than hard. In the photo above, I stamped directly onto the Note Card. After coloring this one, I did see a bit of bleeding from the markers to the inside of the card. So for my event, I had everyone stamp onto a layer of Basic White and then add that to the Note Card either flat or with Stampin’ Dimensionals! The colors I used were Memento Black Ink, Early Espresso Ink, and Granny Apple Green Ink and Blends! Super cute and fun!
Stepped Up Little Monkey Card!
Here is another card I created! This one is stepped up a bit! I used Tahitian Tide as my card base and stamped the leaves all over in Granny Apple Green! Then I stamped the branch onto Granny Apple Green and ripped the top and bottom for a little bit of texture! Next, I stamped the greeting in Night of Navy and layered it onto Night of Navy cardstock for a little more POP! The monkey was stamped in Early Espresso onto Pecan Pie and then punched out!
Which card to you like more – the simple note card or the stepped up version?!? Let me know in the comments below!

Do you like to create with all the colors or stick with just 1?!? What do you think of my Moody Mauve monochromatic card?!? I’m a little bit of both! I love all the colors but sometimes I enjoy creating with just 1.
Here I started with a Basic White card base! Then I took a piece of Moody Mauve cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″) and added a layer of In Color Designer Paper to the lower half (3-3/4″ x 3″). There are so many fun prints in this designer paper pack that you can use for this card or even mix and match to add more color to your card! Next, I added a strip of Moody Mauve Textured Ribbon across the card where the designer paper ends. This sort of smooths out the line from designer paper to cardstock! Simply adhere the ends of the ribbon behind the cardstock and then add this layer to the card base.
For the focal point, I used the Circle Sayings Stamp Set and coordinating Circle Punch! Bundle & Save 10% when you purchase these together! Normally I stamp first and then punch it out but in this case I do the opposite. I punched out the Basic White cardstock first and then stamped the floral image near the bottom edge. Next, I stamped the greeting above that. I was afraid that if I stamped the 2 images and then punched it out they would be too far apart and not fit in the punch. Finally I added this to the card front with Stamping Dimensionals and finished it off with a Moody Mauve Dot! This completes my Moody Mauve monochromatic card!

It’s always sad to see stamp sets retire and this little piggy set is one of them! It’s also on SUPER sale too!!! This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set is under $10 and the coordinating dies are under $15. WOOT WOOT for an amazing bundle! Click here to shop them!
I used a lot of retiring products in this card actually so snatch them up before they are gone at the end of the month! The black and white polka dot paper is from the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper Pack (sold out already). The Balmy Blue Textured Shimmer Paper (not retiring) is super fun to add to a card or any project. It has just a hint of shimmer to it so nothing majorly bling-y. It’s the texture that is super fun though. I love it!
For the focal point, I used the Scallop Contour Dies and stamped the piggy in Basic Gray Ink! I went for gray because it’s a bit softer than Memento Black. I really struggled with color options for my piggy. After coloring it I thought oh no, that’s awful but after it sat for a bit and the colors blended, I loved the look! For the piggy above, I used Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo for the accents! For the piggy below, I used just Flirty Flamingo and while he’s PINK its super cute! So my advice for you is to just color and have fun and give it a bit to really blend and dry and then decide whether you like it or not.
Here I created the same card but in landscape to fit this adorable piggy on a scooter! These adorable cards would be fun for any age really! I know I would giggle if I got this little piggy birthday card! What about you?!?
You all know I love bright colors and flowers! Here I created a card that is just that and I just want to make a million of them! It’s actually really easy and a fun way to use Designer Paper! Check it out with all the layers!
Isn’t it just stunning?!?! Are you ready for all the measurements to layer together?!?!
Daffodil Delight – 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, Melon Mambo – 4″ x 5-1/4″, Daffodil Delight – 10″ x 3-3/4″, scored at 3″ and 8″. All of these pieces are layered onto each other! Then the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper measures 1-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ for the top piece and 2-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ for the bottom piece! You could use the same pattern for these 2 pieces or use coordinating pieces.
For the greeting, I used the amazing Something Fancy Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I love how the dies have layering labels! There is nothing better than a good label set and even better when they layer for a fabulous look like this!
This inside greeting is like the best ever. I love it so much because it’s so perfect to send to someone to brighten there day! This greeting could be stamped inside every card in my opinion!
I hope you enjoyed this card with all the layers! It’s so beautiful and easy to create! Try it out!
There is something about Gold and Navy that just looks stunning!!! Check out this fun Gold Foil One Sheet Wonder card that I created! It uses the NEW Naturally Gilded Specialty Designer Paper that came out this month!!!
The Naturally Gilded Paper has sheets of Gold, Copper, and Silver! These prints are basic nature images which is perfect for any occasion! I paired it with the Something Fancy Stamp Set and Dies for a quick and simple card!
One Sheet Wonder
Now for the amazing One Sheet Wonder part where you can create 6 cards! Let me share the measurements so you can use every inch of the 12″ x 12″ Designer Paper. After all this paper is gorgeous and you don’t want to waste any. First, cut at 5-1/4″ creating a 5-1/4″ x 12″ strip. Then cut another strip at 5-1/4″. Now you should have 2 strips measuring 5-1/4″ x 12″ and 1 strip measuring 1-1/2″ x 12″. With both 5-1/4″ x 12″ strips, cut across every 4″ creating 6 pieces measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″. These will be used on the card fronts of 6 cards! Now with the 1-1/2″ x 12″, simply cut that in half at 3/4″ creating 2 strips of 3/4″ x 12″. Then cut across every 4″ creating 6 pieces measuring 3/4″ x 4″ which will be used inside the card!
For the inside of this card, I brushed some Night of Navy Ink on the bottom of the Very Vanilla just to make the Designer Paper POP some more! I really love how it turned out!!! Of course, then I stamped the greeting crooked but it’s all good! 🙂 Check out all of the supplies below so you can recreate these gold foil one sheet wonder cards!
