    Hand-Penned Thanks

    With the start of the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, each month I am mailing a hand-stamped card to my regular customers which includes a set of instructions on how to make that card.

    Slimline – Sweet Strawberry

    Below are two cards I made for Splitcoaststampers Fan Club – More is More January challenge. The idea is to make a simple card, then step it up for a more enhanced version.

    Gingerbread House Goodies

    The Little Treat Box dies are so useful for goodie gifts for the holidays! I die cut the boxes from Cinnamon Cider card stock and then stamped the little house front from the November Paper Pumpkin kit and adhered it to the front. I had a lot of candy stickers left over from the kit too, so I popped those on. Such a fun little giveaway! The Little Treat Box dies and matching stamp set are being retired by Stampin’ Up! as soon as supplies are gone.
