Snowflake Sentiments

Hello, and happy Wednesday!  Today, I am sharing one of the cards I made using the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle.

Those swirly swirls made with the Silver Foil Sheets make this feel like a whimsical kind of Christmas card, don't you think? :)  They are so fun! Plus, I love the font in this set!  So pretty! You don't need a lot of supplies to make this festive card.  The snowflake strips do all the talkin'. :)

Card Supplies:

  • Snowflake Sentiments Bundle (146053)
  • Thick Whisper White and Whisper White cardstock
  • Cherry Cobbler ink
  • Be Merry DSP, Silver Foil Sheets, Rhinestone Jewels

Note: I recommend using the Precision Base Plate for these detailed snowflakes.

Graceful Garden Sympathy

Hello, crafty friends.  Today's share is a sympathy card I made for a sweet lady I have gotten to know through my  Stampin' UP! business who recently lost her husband.  There is nothing better than to give someone you care about a hand made card.


I was experimenting with my Stampin' Blend markers (again) and found that I could color the roses with the Stampin' Blends even though the images were not stamped with Memento Black ink. It worked with the Calypso Coral and Pool party inks, but did not work as well with the Old Olive ink.  NOTE: Stampin' Blends are not intended to be used with "regular" ink colors.  Stampin' UP! recommends that these markers be used with Memento Black ink.

However, I am not one to listen to rules when crafting. :)  I colored very lightly and did not try to blend too much.  Warning: do not try this at home....if you do and it does not work- I can not be held liable for ruined craft work. Craft at your own risk!  tee-hee.


Sympathy card supplies:


  • Graceful Garden (143849), Painted Harvest (146021), Flourishing Phrases (141534)
  • Thick Whisper White, Whisper White cardstock
  • Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Old Olive and Basic Black inks
  • Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack, Leaf punch, Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, Subtles Enamel Shapes, Stampin' Blends

Tiny Treat Box for Halloween

Hello, crafty friends.  Today, I am sharing another Halloween themed project using the Seasonal Chums Bundle along with the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.  Sorry for the inundation of the pumpkin image from this set. :)

To decorate the Clear Tiny Treat Box, I made a belly band using a strip of the Spooky Night DSP along with a strip of Pear Pizza card stock that was punched with the Ticket Tear Border punch.

I actually used the pumpkin image as its intended use - A tag!   I stamped the pumpkin on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored him using my new Stampin' Blends markers and then die cut it out.  To finish it off,  I added a bow to the tag it self using a piece of Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding.  I also added some leaves using the must have Painted Harvest Bundle. This set makes the cuties tags!


On the inside I stamped "trick or treat" which is also from the Seasonal Chums Bundle.


A super quick and easy treat box ready for Halloween giving!
