Holiday Catalog Paper Shares

The upcoming August-December Mini Catalog aka Holiday Catalog has so many gorgeous new papers, and my paper shares allow you to get a little bit of each one!  If you know me at all, you know I love options and love to share options with you whenever possible.  So, my HC Shares have options!

What is a Paper Share?

A Paper Share is a sampling of the newest designer papers from Stampin’ Up!  It allows you to see, feel and use the paper before buying the full packs of your favorites!  When you reserve a designer series paper share with me, I order all of the designer papers from the latest Stampin’ Up! catalog, cut it up, package it, label it, and then ship it to you so that you get 1/4 package of all the new papers you have selected.  click here to register and reserve your share.

Sunset Sunflower-Magenta Madness Color Combo

I have been working with Magenta Madness, one of the new In Colors and have a fabulous color combo to share with you!  When you pair Magenta Madness with Calypso Coral and Mango Melody, you get a vibrant set of colors that blend together beautifully and remind me of a sunset.  Hence my SUNSET SUNFLOWER!

I'm entering Kylie's monthly International Blog Highlights Contest, and it would be so awesome if you would click here and vote for my project:)

I'll be demonstrating this project on my Tuesday @ 2 weekly Facebook Live on 7-7-20.  I hope you will join me!


Here are a few tips and tricks for my sunset sunflower card:

  • Start with your lightest color and then move to the strongest when watercoloring.  I began with Mango Melody, added Calyso Coral, and finished with Magenta Madness for a gorgeous sunset look.
  • Allow watercolor paper to dry (or speed up by using a Heat Tool if you're impatient:) before die-cutting.  If the paper is wet, it might rip during the die-cutting process.
  • This is a lot of gorgeousness but still mails for a single stamp!!!  Artistry Blooms sequins give so much dazzling color and light and yet are flat enough to mail successfully and affordably!

All Stampin' Up! supplies are listed and linked below for your convenience.  Don't forget to vote for my card in this month's contest!  The prize is getting to be part of a blog hop which means I will reward you with more creative inspiration!




High Tide with Just Jade



I introduced Just Jade on my Tuesday @ 2 Facebook Live this week and made cards with High Tide all-occasion stamp set.  Whale of a Time DSP and sequins pulled it all together bringing the classic images in High Tide up to date with a fresh color palette.  Be sure to click on my video to see side by side comparisons of Just Jade with ALL the other Stampin' Up! greens and to see how it is an amazing trifecta with Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce!

Let me highlight just a few things about today's cards--so appropriate for today's world with the message and image of hope:

  1. Can you spot the differences?  The card on the right is my original, and I demonstrated the card on the left on Tuesday @ 2 Facebook Live.  Notice the change of DSP, missing ribbon knot, and missing scalloped oval layer.  It's a somewhat cleaner look, a bit trimmed down.  I like them both but would love to know your preference!  Comment below to tell me your choice!
  2. I cut the greeting in half to put part on the front and part on the inside of the card.  See my process in the video, but I love the ability to customize my greetings!
  3. Stamparatus is the BEST way to line up the 2-step stamps for the lighthouse. 
  4. They don't show up overly well in my photo, but the Whale of a Time Sequins are positively gorgeous!  They look like jewels and even have tiny shell-shaped sequins!  They are a must-have embellishment:)
