Yesterday we had a Day of Service with Stampin’ Up! Our CEO Sara Douglass was online and she sent out the pdf that will help us make Beautiful handmade cards fast and easy!
I mailed out all the cards today, wanna see what I sent? Keep in mind that I used retiring product, but YOU still have time to get that DSP, Noble Peacock Rhinestones & Ribbon if they are still available go to my OnLine Store now!
So, I made 20 cards, multiples of the ones above. I am NOT a ‘go quick’ crafting kind of girl! But, this was eye opening for me!! Not only are these beautiful, but I got them done and out in 1 day! THAT is unheard of for me! I also used the Spread Sunshine pdf available here, that you can download, print out and make your own cards! ALL proceeds go to helping with Covid 19!
Below you can see the supplies used in picture form. to get the measurements for the cards see the first picture. The only thing I added was a piece of Old Olive at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Do a card without layers?! Not me! My eyes are wide open, and know this about myself. But I really love how these came out, what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by, give this a try!!

Today I am sharing with you a light up card! I love these! They are so much fun! Next year, I am planning on going to see the Eiffel Tower (thank God it’s not THIS year!). I saw this card where someone made a bridge with water under it, and the Tower is in the background. I am not sure that they used Stampin’ Up! stamps, so decided to make one using Parisian Beauty. Here is my card lit up:
Not only did I use the Parisian Beauty stamp set, but I used the punch Label Me Fancy! This is what I used to make the bridge. I tried so hard to make them evenly spaced, this is as close as I could get. Also, I used Wink of Stella to highlight the water to give it that bit of sparkle!! If you lay the Smoky Slate piece of cardstock onto a grid sheet or against a ruler, make marks at these spots: 5/8″, 2″ and 3 5/16, then put the punch into these spots and only go part way up (look at picture to see how far) making the marks in the middle of the punch. This way it will make your waterway!
In the light of sharing with you the lit up version, I HAD to show you the card (a little more professional pic) when it’s NOT lit up:
Of course, I used a lot of bling by using Champagne Rhinestones, because you are not always going to have it turned on! The tree came from the die Sweet Silhouettes. Sponging the So Saffron cardstock after it was die-cut with Soft Suede and Garden Green, really makes this ‘tree’ look like the sun is hitting it in spots! Make sure you leave some yellow to give it that sun kissed look!
Furthermore, I also sponged the Eiffel Tower with Soft Suede and then ran the Memento Black pad itself over parts of the sides. This was to make it look like it was antiqued. What do you think? Did I hit it, or is it a miss? For those of you who love light up cards, we are going to be making this card next week! Let me know if you want to attend!
