Saw this card and loved it so much I made my own copy:
- Stamps: Holiday Home
- Color Palette: Memento Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, So Saffron
- Accessories: Owl Punch (heart), Homemade Holiday Framelits, Big Shot
I made very few changes to the original as Michelle did a beautiful job. One of the things I did change was to add a tiny bit of So Saffron in the lights and at the windows. I like the feeling of being at home that it creates.

Who knew you could have so much fun with houses?
These are SUCH FUN to color. (The truth: I have ALWAYS loved to color!!) I’ve used both Stampin’ Write Markers and Blendabilities on these – the Stampin’ Write markers provide more options in the pastel range.
The Under the Tree Specialty DSP in the Holiday catalog is a heavy-weight paper that is just right for making tags, and the Angle Topper punch makes the same shape EVERY TIME. (I KNOW. Don’t you love it?)
It’s World Card Making Day! Did you know there was such a thing? It’s a great day to make – and send – a card!
- Stamps: Amazing Birthday, Four Feathers
- Color Palette: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White
- Accessories: Back to Black DSP, Feathered Framelits, Crushed Curry Bakers Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sponge Daubers
Make a card, send a card…even if it’s tomorrow.
A card helps to make the distance seem a little shorter:
- Stamps: Holiday Home, Gorgeous Grunge, Just Sayin’
- Color Palette: Soft Sky, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizazz, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip
- Accessories: Homemade Holiday and Word Bubble Framelits, All is Calm Washi tape
When you live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, separations happen. Sometimes they’re short term, sometimes they’re for a long time. Sometimes I really don’t like them. Most of the time, I put on my big girl pants and deal with it.
Making a card helps.
This year for my October Easel Calendar I decided to take a break from Halloween:
- Stamps: Flower Shop
- Color Palette: Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler
- Accessories: Pansy punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Crystal Effects
When I first order Flower Shop (AND the Pansy punch, of course – this kind of thing goes without saying) I discovered that Stampin’ Up! had pulled a bit of a fast one on us. The flower – and the punched image – are NOT symmetrical. You can’t just stamp that flower and punch it out any ol’ which-a-way. I developed a solution and posted a mini-tutorial: you can check it out HERE.
Today is also DAY 1 of Stamp, Stock and Save. Card stock, ink, adhesive and envelopes are discounted 15%, and a select group of stamps has 20% savings. This deal lasts only until October 6, so don’t miss it! Get all the details HERE.
