2021-Stampin-up-Christmas-Cards-great-layout

Here's a great layout for your 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards that really highlight our beautiful patterned paper.  It's a great time to create cards with mixed patterns and if you keep the focal point simple, the result is beautiful cards!

Take a look at the process from last week's Premiere Video on YouTube then make your own version with your supplies!

Lisa's Inklings (Basic Instructions):

Edens-garden-simple-layoutThis Eden's Garden version uses the same cutting dimensions for layers with a little twist in how the focal point is placed.

This is a beautiful coordinating set of products and tomorrow is your last chance to get three  project kits when you purchase the Eden's Garden Collection from me. Read about it HERE!

Try this great layout for your 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Cards and send me a photo of your creation...I'd love to see it!

Stars Team Member Spotlight: Diana Young

Ink and Inspirations Stars Spotlight

Welcome to our Stars Team Spotlight with Diana Young!  Diana has been part of our team for a little over two years and lives near us in southwest Missouri.

Our Stars Spotlight highlights one of my Stampin' Up! team members that agree to share some information about themselves by answering a short survey.  Here's Diana!

Diana-young1.How long have you been paper crafting?

I’ve been crafting for about 10 years but only seriously for the last three.

2. What is your favorite stamp set?

It’s such a toss-up for a favorite stamp set. I really like Forever Fern until Eden's Garden came out and what a toss-up there!

3. What is your favorite color or color combination?

Greens seem to be my go-to colors.  

4. What is your favorite type of paper crafting project or technique? 

I love making fun fold cards using die-cuts and ribbons.

5. What is your best tip for your fellow paper crafters?

My tip for other crafters is always to keep an open mind. When I get in a rut I can always go to other crafters for inspiration - they always get my creativity up and running.

Here's a peek at a beautiful card Diana created with the new Eden's Garden.

Edens-garden-diana-youngA special thank you to Diana for sharing with us and for being a member of our Stars Team!

2021 Blessing Box with Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves

Blessing-box-with-3-x-3-cards

This Blessing Box is a special project and the 2021 version is created with the beautiful Gorgeous Leaves Bundle by Stampin' Up!

The idea behind the Blessing Box came to me when so many would often tell me how much it meant to receive a card from me.  And, when my brother told me that he's kept every card that I've ever made for him.  It made me think about those who never receive a little "paper hug" in the mail.  How could that be changed even if only for just a few?

And, thus, the Blessing Box was created.  A little box that holds 3 x 3 cards with a kind phrase, a verse from God's Word, or an uplifting message...just a random act of kindness.  There is no signature, no credit; just sharing in hopes that it will be a blessing in someone's day.

The video goes into a little more detail about how these are shared so I hope you'll watch and make plans to create your Blessing Box.

2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag

2021-Stampin-up-christmas-season-card-gift-bagYou are going to love these coordinating 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Season Card and Gift Bag!

The card is a fun fold that looks a little more tricky than it actually is and the bag is super simple.  And, the pine cones from the Christmas Season Bundle (English) [156801]are so realistic with the two-step stamping technique on Crumb Cake card stock against the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper [156292] background.  These elements make for a really special project.

The Angels Of Peace Cling Stamp Set (English) [156365] is one that can be used during the Christmas season or any time of year.  This little one carries a little holly sprig and there is a more mature angel.  Both are super sweet and pretty and are fun to color.

This project was originally seen on my YouTube Premiere last week.  You can tune in there on most Thursday evenings to see a new project or two and participate in the LIVE chat.

You can create this card without all the techniques and it would still be a beautiful card and much easier to mass-produce. And, you could always re-create it in a different color scheme.  It would be so pretty in traditional colors, too.  What do you think about this card in pink?  I am loving this color palette featured in the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper [156329].
