Sweat As A Peach Gift Card Holder

Welcome!  I have a special today... a Free downloadable PDF featuring my Sweet as a Peach Gift Card Holder and Bonus Card.

I am really enjoying using this stamp and die bundle.  So fun and the Designer Series Paper is really pretty.  

You can get the whole Suite Collection too, which includes cute little jam jars. 

A few weeks ago I did my Wednesday night Facebook Live and made these two projects.  You can view that Here.  So today, I am sharing a Free PDF tutorial with all the instructions and dimensions.  I hope you use this to recreate the projects or adapts with other items you may have!  Enjoy.

SAVI Sunday 62 - Soft Pastels with Sponge Daubers

Welcome to my SAVI Sunday Post... that's Stamping & Various Inspiration.  Watch My Video Here

Today's inspiration is our Soft Pastels Assortment.  These are pastel chalks that come in Stampin' Up! colors (Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, Gorgeous Grape, Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade).  What a great assortment of colors.  Stampin' Up! used to carry pastels many years ago and I have to say... these are Way Better!  

In my Video, I show you the most basic way to use the pastel chalks.  You simply scrape the chalk sticks to get some lose pigment powder, dip a sponge dauber into the powder and color.  But first, the magic step is to stamp your image with VersaMark ink.  This is the clear, sticky ink most people use when they want to heat emboss.  Just like in heat embossing, the embossing powder sticks to the VersaMark Ink, so does the pastel chalks.

Color and Contour

Hello There!  Hope this finds your day going well.  I cannot believe how quickly the time is going so I have some card projects I want to share with all of you before we head into other things (the Christmas/Fall catalog is releasing soon).  

This is one of my new favorite stamp and die bundles from the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog; it's Color and Contour.  The Scalloped Contour Dies are amazing!  I have used them on so many projects already.

I just had a thought.... The Scalloped Contour Dies would be fantastic to use on a scrapbook page.  Hmmmm, guess I have a new project to get working on.  In the meantime, here is a look at my 3 cards I created with this bundle.  I hope you enjoy them!  Each one is just a little different from the other. 

1.)  In Coastal Cabana
