Greeting card created with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, Retiring Colors, #Handmade Card, #Heat Embossing

Welcome to Simple Sunday!! 

You can create a simply gorgeous card in minutes with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  It is especially pretty with silver embossing, Seaside Spray and Soft Sea Foam.

Seaside Spray is one of my favorite colors.  It is retiring soon.  All products in this color as well as the other 2019-2021 In Color collection are only available while supplies last.

Gorgeous Posies – Makeover Monday

Welcome to Makeover Monday!!  Today’s project is a stepped up version of yesterday’s Simple Sunday card.

Birthday card created with Stampin' Up's Gorgeous Posies stamp set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Makeover Monday, #Easel Card, #Fun Folds, #Birthday

How about a fun fold card for Makeover Monday?  Easel cards are so easy to make and are impressive.  

To create this fun fold, start with a piece of Flirty Flamingo card stock that is 11 X 4-1/4.  Score it at 2-3/4 & 5-1/2.  Fold on the 5-1/2 score line, then fold the 2-3/4 score line in the opposite direction.  Next, adhere an additional piece of Flirty Flamingo, 4-1/4 X 5-1/2 on the 2-3/4 rectangle only to create the easel.

To add a little texture, I stamped the images first and then I embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  This is my “go to” embossing folder.  I always love the results.

I find it so easy to create beautiful projects with the True Love DSP.  Just color the images with Stampin’ Blends Markers and you will have beautiful and unique DSP every time.

Every Wednesday evening at 7:00 Eastern Time, I create three project live.  

First, I created this card paired with the Garden Gateway Dies.

All of the images are colored with Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Next, I created a second greeting card.  The sentiment is die cut using the Tasteful Label Dies.

On the inside of both cards, I used a floral image that was bordering the edge of the DSP to utilize all of the DSP.

The 3D project holds a “flowering bloom” tea.  Simply drop it in a clear mug and add hot water.  It will bloom into a beautiful flower.

Today’s card has more detail that the Simple Sunday version.

So Much Love

Welcome to Simple Sunday, where I create a simple, but beautiful card.

Greeting card created with the So Much Love Stamp Set. #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Simple Sunday, #Birthday, #Handmade Cards

Today’s card includes my favorite 2019-2021 In-Color, Seaside Spray.  This is one of my all-time favorite blues.  I used the Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in one of the image from the So Much Love stamp set.

If you would like to own any of the 2019-2021 In Color products, now is the time to purchase them.  The retirement list will publish March 24, 2021.  After that time they are only available while supplies last and I can assure you that they will go very quickly.
