I chose the Stampin Up Beary Christmas Suite to make my card. It was the first suite that jumped out me when I was looking through the Stampin Up Holiday Mini. I was knew in the moment that this what the set I was ordering right away! I love the Polar Bear, it just makes me smile! This card is so fun and easy to make! I used Night of Navy Cardstock as the cardbase. And then I added an embossed layer in Night of Navy. The embossing folder is also new called Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder. Before adhering the layer to the cardbase with dimensionals, I wrapped the Balmy Blue Sparkle Ribbon around the layer and finished with a bow. I stamped the greeting in Misty Moonlight and use the 2 smallest rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies. While I was stamping, I also stampin a piece of Basic White with a polar bear and snowflakes for inside of the card and also on my envelopes.
I added dimensionals to the back of the greeting and adhere to the card over the ribbon. For the Polar Bear on the right, I used the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Beary Cute Punch, to cut one bear out. For the bear on the left, I used scissors and just fussy cut. I finished the front of the card by adding a few Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins.

My favorite time of year is just around the corner. So I felt it was only fitting to use the brand new All About Autumn Suite that will be available in September. It so pretty and the paper is gorgeous. And the best part of these projects, my daughter, who will be off to college again in a week, helped me design and make them!!
I started with a card base of Very Vanilla and added the first layer of Moody Mauve which was embossed with the new Distressed Tile 3D Embossing folder. The next layer is a piece of All About Autumn DSP 3 1/2x4 1/2. I cut out several of the leaves in Mossy Mellow, Crushed Curry, Moody Mauve, Pretty Peacock and Copper Clay. The greeting was stamped in the Pretty Peacock and cut out with the dies. I finished it with the Copper Ribbon included in the suite and one of the adhesive backed speckled dots
I hope you enjoyed the projects I made for the hop! Please be sure to leave a comment and continue to Tiz's blog!

It's time for our monthly Stampin Friends blog hop! And this month we are focusing on punches. When I began designing the card for this month, I realized I have so many punches. But only a handful are current with Stampin Up. I had to really think about what I wanted to do.

To make this Perfectly Punched card, It is very easy to make. And you could make multiple cards in a short amount of time.
I used the Double-Oval Punch and punched out several ovals using the Bright & Beautiful DSP. Then I alternated the patterns and size as the background of my card. When I was happy with the layout, I used a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Basic White and glued them down. I added dimensionals to the back and adhered that to the card base in Basic White as well. Then I took a piece of Metallic Woven Ribbon in Sweet Sorbet. I stamped the greeting from the Happy Labels stamp set and punched it out with same punch and then I punched out the larger oval in Berry Burst. I added that to the front of the card with dimensionals. I finished it off with Basic Rhinestones!
How cute! I love it. I hope you enjoy the card I have shared with you.

For this card, we stamped stars in Azure Afternoon ink on Azure Afternoon Cardstock for our card base. We created a shaker window with die-cut Basic White Cardstock and Foam Adhesive Strips. For the shaker bits, we smeared a bit of Gold Enamel Effects Basics on Basic White Cardstock with a Palette Knife, let it dry, and then die cut dozens of tiny stars. We then stamped and die cut the squirrel and the shooting star image. We colored the squirrel and net with Pecan Pie and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. We colored the star with Enamel Effects Basics and used a Water Painter dipped in Enamel Effects Basics to lightly color the tail of the shooting star.
We love how this card turned out! As you teach this technique, don’t be afraid to branch out and show your customers all the amazing things they can do with Enamel Effects Basics!
