Holiday Thank You for Paper Players!

Good morning!!  I have a super cute and simple card to share with you today!  I used the Paper Players Challenge as inspiration for the layout of the card.  This is a great layout is a great way to use up scraps of designer paper.  I love the way it highlights 3 different patterns on one card!!

Dec thank you

The "Thank You" is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set--the font is just adorable!  The designer paper is the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Paper.  

Here's the sketch I used:

It was fun playing along with a challenge again! 

Here are all the fun items used on today's card--click on any one to be taken to my store!  Thanks for your support!

December Customer Perks!!


I’m excited to share with you my Customer Reward program for all my loyal customers. Starting on June 3, 2020, you will earn a “punch” for every $40 that you spend (before tax & shipping) and when you have collected 10 punches, you will receive a free item from any current catalog, up to a $40 value!  (shipped directly to you, includes FREE shipping!)

Here are all the details:
  • You’ll earn one punch for every $40 in Stampin’ Up! Product that you order (before tax and shipping), but you may not combine orders to get a punch. For example: If you order $79, you only get one punch and the leftover amount does not carry over. If you order $81, you get two punches.
  • The punches that you earn do not expire. If it takes you three years to get 10 punches, I will still honor your free gift!
  • All orders must be placed with me, either in person, via email, or online at

  • I will track your punches for you and will email you when you reach ten punches and let you know how to redeem your gift. I will send a thank you note for every order that you place with me and will let you know how many punches that order earned so you can keep track at home, too!

Reflection Technique

Good morning!  I have the most wonderful stamp club imaginable!  They are so much fun, and soooo talented!  It's a challenge each month to show them something new!  But, they're really great at requests, and the reflection technique was a request this month!  We had done this years ago, but they wanted a "refresher"!  

This card is done with the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set:

Nov cc 6

To do this technique (in a nutshell!):  Stamp your image onto your cardstock.  Then, stamp the same image onto a piece of window sheet.  Use this piece as a "stamp"--flip it over, and lay it where you want your "reflection".  Give it a rub to make sure you get all the ink transferred to the cardstock.  That's it--so simple!!  Just remember--your reflected image doesn't have to be perfect--it's a reflection on water!!

To color this card, we used the Blending Brushes and ink pads:  Pacific Point, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight.

Today is the last day to join my team for only $75!!!


Supplies used:

Embossed Angel

Good morning!  Today's card features the beautiful little angel from the Angels of Peace Stamp Set:
