Using Stampin Up Edgelits and Framelits

Hello Stampers and Crafters! This card was one of my projects for stamp club this past Friday night. Although I had no trouble using the edgelit and embossing folder the first time for the original card, we seemed to all have a little trouble with the die when re-creating! You know how it is, things never go right when you're trying to show someone else!

So, I found this video on Stampin Up's YouTube channel on how to properly use the products, lol! It may answer some questions that some of you had about using adhesive to hold the die in place and such.

The project is a variation of another card I did a few weeks ago. I just changed the flower color, ribbon and added the edgelits. You can view the original here.

Hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Simply Sent Cards

Hello Stampers and Crafters! I recently purchased the Simply Sent Everyday Elegance set, found on page 193 of the catalog. With this kit you get 8 printed, embossed, die cut cards to customize any way you wish using the 16 self adhesive tags. It also comes with 8 white envelopes. I added a bit of ribbon to each of mine. I whipped up all 8 in about 30 minutes. Great to have around for any of those last minute birthdays you forgot about!! Available for $11.95.

Products used for this project:
Cardstock - everyday elegance simply sent kit (122377)
Ink - cherry cobbler and baja breeze
Stamps - Thoughts and prayers and Bring on the cake

Other - blushing bride pleated satin ribbon (125570) and 1/4" white grosgrain(109025)

Heart Embosslit

Hello Stampers and Crafters! I whipped this little card out with Valentine's Day as an inspiration. I had these colors laying out after doing a stamp club project card out of the same color combo. The white layer is dry embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder (#123134) and then I used the 2-1/2 circle punch (#120906) to take a half circle out of one of the long sides. The rest is self explanatory I think!

***edited to add: I copied this layout from a card I saw on*****

Here are the supplies used for this project:
Cardstock: Island Indigo, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink: none
Stamps: none (I will add one on the inside later)
Other: 2-1/2" circle punch, fashionable hearts embosslits (#125596), houndstooth embossing folder, white 1/4" grosgrain ribbon (#109025), brads (I believe I used the rose red ones)

February Coupon

I am planning on offering monthly coupons and/or specials. Here is the first special! Contact me if you would like to take advantage of this great offer!!

Tissue Pouch made with Stampin Up Fabric

Hello stampers and crafters! My husband bought me a fabulous new sewing machine back in November for my 40th birthday. He was shocked that I asked for that for a special birthday! I have been playing around with it and trying to teach myself to sew and quilt. I found this tutorial on Pinterest for the tissue pouches. I made about 8 in an hour! They are perfect for little scraps of fabric and such. They would make great gifts for teachers and friends that are under the weather! I made mine using the Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric (#122337, $9.95) and also added an Antique Brad (#117273, $5.95 for 20) and a loop made from Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta ribbon (#119960, $5.95).

Give them a try! They are super easy!!!

Thanks for looking!

Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Black, Garden Green, and Whisper White
