Tutorial - Maxine FinchPromotions Join My Team Projects Paper Pumpkin Facebook Group Hello *|FNAME|*,

This time of year I start thinking about Autumn and the upcoming holidays. This year things are looking different, but I’m determined to celebrate the good. I’m feeling the need to create and be surrounded by beautiful and cheerful things, and I don’t think I’m alone in that. Something as small as a hand stamped card or gift can make a big difference to someone you care about. I challenge you to spend some time making cards and gifts and sharing them – Together we can create a beautiful fall!

This card features the Love of Leaves Bundle (#155195) and Plaid Tidings 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (#153527). The thing I love about the Plaid Tidings paper is that it has a plaid for every occasion.

It’s great for all the things you might expect from plaid, but the bright colours are great for baby and Easter and the black and white patterns are ideal for elegant birthday or anniversary cards.

The stitching detail of the Stitched Leaves Dies (#153567) adds the extra bit of detail that gives a card the perfect finishing touch.
Project - Step 11. Stamp & Die Cut
Stamp the two small leaves from the Love of Leaves stamp set on scrap Granny Apple Green and Rich Razzleberry cardstock with VersaMark ink. Die cut with coordinating Stitched Leaves outline and center stitched pattern dies.  Project - Step 22. Stamp & Stitch Stamp assorted leaves from Love of Leaves stamp set on 3-3/4″ x 5″ Mango Melody cardstock with VersaMark ink. Line up the stitched stripes die at the top of the cardstock and die cut the stitched perforations.   Project - Step 33. Die Cut Leaf Die cut the largest leaf from the Stitched Leaves Dies from the center of the Mango Melody cardstock. Project - Step 44. Stamp & Punch Greeting Punch one end of a 4″ x 1″ Melon Mambo cardstock strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Stamp greeting near the punched end with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Project - Step 55. Card Base & Layers Cut Rich Razzleberry cardstock to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″ along the 8-1/2″ side. Layer 4″ x 5-1/4″ Plaid Tidings paper onto the front and 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White cardstock on the inside for a writing area. Project - Step 66. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals Emphasize the die cut image by making it “float” on the card front.  To do this add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Mango Melody layer near the edge of the die cut leaf and at the corners.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the greeting. Project - Step 77. Add Leaves & Greeting Add greeting to the bottom left of the Mango Melody layer, trim off excess at the edge. Add layer to card front. Add Granny Apple Green leaf with Stampin’ SEAL or Mini Glue Dots. Add Rich Razzleberry leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Project - Step 88. Stamp & Cut Stamp “hello” greeting on scrap Whisper White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Cut out greeting with Paper Snips and add to card with Mini Glue Dots.

Boho Indigo

The Annual Catalogue Inspiration

Boho Indigo Product Medley

Do you ever have times you want to make something, but you just aren’t sure where to start? It’s the blank canvas dilemma of having too many choices. Often, when I’m not sure how to start, I let the artists at Stampin’ Up! help me.

Suites, kits, and medleys – oh my! These artist-designed sets of coordinating products are a great place to get your inspiration flowing. Start with a simple kit project and step it up. Or look for a colour combination, or a whole design theme. I hope this tip helps you the next time you are looking for inspiration!

I’m sharing this elegant card tutorial with my newsletter subscribers featuring the Boho Indigo Product Medley. This gorgeous collection includes stamps, dies, paper, ribbon, die-cuts, and more! It’s packed full of supplies that will inspire your creativity. In this tutorial you’ll also learn how to create a masked Embossing Paste background.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Masked Embossing Paste Card


I get asked what the difference is between Suites, kits, and medleys? Although they are all groupings of coordinating products to make your crafting experience easier, there are a few difference.

Suites are entire collections of themed products that coordinate. A suite has at least one stamp set, sometimes two and usually has patterned paper, dies or punches, ribbon, and embellishments.

Kits include pre-designed and pre-cut projects. They can be all-inclusive or can include project supplies with coordinating stamps and ink available separately.

Medleys are more like a mini-suite. They are a collection of coordinating supplies, but not as large as a suite, so you get a bit of everything to inspire your creativity at a budget-friendly price point.

TIPS:
Embossing Paste dries quickly so it’s best to work with it quickly, and clean your tools while it is still wet. Don’t worry about perfection, variations in depth and texture improve the effect of Embossing Paste.

Peony Garden

The Annual Catalogue Inspiration





Peony Garden Suite



Some images are timeless and endure through the changes of years and styles. The Peony Garden Suite is a perfect example of timeless elegance. From simple stamping to over-the-top, this suite covers all the bases. Use traditional colours, stamping and die-cutting to create a peony that looks like it came right out of grandma’s garden or create a simple modern, monochrome look with the flower stamped in a neutral colour on Whisper White. I think you’ll find yourself reaching for this suite for many occasions.



This lovely tutorial includes two ways to watercolor and uses the Peony Dies to build a gorgeous 3-D flower. Let’s make something beautiful!

Thanks, and have a great day.
