Color Blocking Card Using High Tide

High Tide color blocked card

When is the last time you got a handmade card in the mail? Do you remember how it made you feel?   The other day, I went to the mailbox and was flipping through my mail when I saw a smaller envelope – a card envelope.  And handwritten on the front was my name with a return address label from my friend Julie Davison.  I literally stood there on the sidewalk thinking… why is Julie sending me a card?  I wonder what her card looks like! It wasn’t my birthday and it wasn’t for a swap.  So I eagerly opened … Read More

Kinda Eclectic Collaged Thank You Stampin' Up card

Today I wanted to share a card I created to send out as part of my customer thank yous.  I had gotten embarrassingly far behind on sending out thank you cards for orders over the last few months and so I wanted to make up some cards and make sure everyone knew how much I appreciated them and their support.  It took a while but it was great to sit and write a little note to each person.  Plus it was fun to take a big stack to the post office… say HAPPY MAIL!  🙂 So what is inside many … Read More

How fun is this?  Normally, the new Stampin’ Up annual catalog comes out on June 1st and so you would have to wait for the new catalog to go live to order any of the new goodies (well, unless you purchased the demonstrator starter kit, but that is a whole other fun thing!).  But this year, Stampin’ Up decided to get the party started early by releasing one of the suites early! Introducing the Eastern Palace Suite! This is a new suite that is coming out with the Annual Catalog but you can get your hands on it via one … Read More

What do you get when you’ve made a bunch of projects but then totally slacked off on sharing them on the blog?  A mad dash to start posting them all so you can see the fun ideas while you can actually still get the products if you want to make it yourself.  Novel idea, huh? 😉 Today I wanted to share a card that I made for my Stamp Club that was inspired by a card by Kim Williams.  I loved the basics of her card and just simplified it down to this version which I think is just so … Read More

Flourishing Phrases Accent Coloring with the Chalk Marker - Jennifer Blomquist, NWStamper.com

Back when Stampin’ Up had Chalkboard Paper, we also got the White Chalk marker.  And I knew what to do with it… duh, you use a chalk marker on chalkboard paper!  🙂  But then, the chalkboard paper went away and the chalk marker remained, which made me think there had to be other great uses for this marker.  Since then, I found that it is great for all kinds of soft accents and touches on your cards.  My favorite version is Accent Coloring with the chalk marker on light brown paper, like I did in this card! I stamped the flourish … Read More
