Hello! As a collector of all things crafty, much to my husband’s dismay, I have stamps that have been retired for many years. I love my Stampin’ Up! stamps and just can’t seem to part with the sets I collected when I was a demonstrator many moons ago. With that being said, I will be posting creations on this blog that incorporate ALL of my stamp sets, Stamin’ Up!, new and old, StampAbilities, PSX, Club Scrap (Who remembers them?), Provo Craft, and more that I’m sure I have in my stash. However, since I have once again gotten bitten by the stamping bug and became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator again, I will be posting projects using current Stampin’ Up! products which you can buy from me at any time.
Now, I know many of you have retired sets that you fell in love with enough to buy them, but they may be collecting dust in your stamping cupboard. Well, ladies (and some awesome gents I know) dust those cases off and let’s get stamping! The wonderful thing about sharing online is that even though you do not have the exact set I may be using in the project, you can CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) it and modify it to your sets and colors of cardstock. Card layouts are what take me the longest and that is why I scour sites like Pinterest and Splitcoast Stampers.
If you are a beginner, no worries! I have an awesome product for you! Maybe you have heard of Paper Pumpkin from Stampin’ Up? If not, it is the most wonderful kit for beginners and seasoned stampers, like myself, where you get to learn new tricks and to even get over those nasty creative blocks we all get from time to time. These kits come pre-cut for you and include everything you need to make the enclosed project. I am not kidding when I say it has EVERYTHING you need to complete the project! It has the photopolymer stamp set (your first kit will include the clear acrylic block to adhere the photopolymer stamps to), all of the card bases, embellishments, fibers (wow that is dating me! I mean ribbon, thread, baker’s twine, etc., LOL), stamp pad, and even the adhesive dots or dimensionals! Not all of the kits are card kits though. Some of the kits are little gift boxes and bags.
Whatever your stamping level may be, I am here to help!
Migraine Awareness Card
I made this card for my first card swap in over 10 years. I forgot how much fun card swapping is. I made 25 of the exact same card and traded it out for 25 different cards. This way I was able to get a variety of cards without having to design each one!
I used the following items to make the Migraine Awareness Card:
Artfully Aware Stamp Set
Early Espresso, Merry Merlot, and Very Vanilla Cardstock
Early Espresso, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pads
Support Ribbon Dies
Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush
Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
