Shanda Stirk made this beautiful poinsettia card. By using shimmer paint and reinker to paint the flower and leaves, she was able to create her own colors to coordinate with the DSP!

In honour of Share it Sunday I though I would share not only a card I made, but 15 cards made by my friends and teammates across North America! I hosted a swap by mail earlier this season, and will be posting a card every hour until 9 pm tonight. The first card is the one I made, featuring the amazing Moose Punch and Merry Moose stamp set paired with some lovely snowflake designer series paper. I also made a matching 3x3 card and tag as my thank you to all the swap participants!

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop


This month's Paper Pumpkin kit is called "Hello Pumpkin" and I love the gorgeous fall theme! You can join me this afternoon on Zoom too to see how I put these projects, and more, together, and do a bit of socially distanced socializing while we're at it! Join us here: Hello Pumpkin with Paper Pumpkin Zoom

I actually used some of the 'scraps' from the treat holders from the kit to make these cute little bunting flags. A few of the extra lace die cuts and this card is full of texture and layers! I should have actually embossed the background, but I didn't think of it until after, so maybe I'll do that during my Zoom...


Let's see what the rest of the crew made with their kits!

In anticipation of tomorrow's big stamp sale, I thought I'd make some cards featuring a stamp set that was going to be on sale! I used Moving Along and CASEd a newsletter to make these adorable #simplestamping cards. Check out my blog for more great ideas with stamps you can get for 15% off, and message me to place your order before they go back to regular price! #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies #babycard #welcomebaby #movingalong #CASE #copyandshareeverything

24 Hour Stamp Sale Blog Hop


Tomorrow the 24 hour Stamp Sale starts and a ton of stamps will be 15% off! Let's take a look at some of the stamps that will be on sale...

I chose to work with the Moving Along set. This set was featured in some recent newsletters from Stampin' Up! so I decided to CASE the designs. I didn't quite have the same DSP available, so I used the lovely patterns of the Peony Garden DSP. I also changed up the colors slightly to make them really pop. Here's a look at all three cards I made...


The first card uses a 3 3/4" square panel that's stamped with the two step images from the set, this time with a helicopter. 

The next card I stamped the card images onto four pieces of 1 7/8" square cardstock.


Last but not least, the train images got stamped onto three 3 3/4" x 1 1/4" pieces.


Hop along below and see what others have made, and then get me your stamp order for tomorrow so you can save money and get more stamps!


You can also place your order by clicking on any of the items I used to make these cards below. Don't forget to use my host code (on the right of this page).

An extra fun detail on today card! Because Hebrew is read right to left instead of left to right like English, I felt it was more appropriate to have the card open on the left!

Shana tova! Today is celebrated as Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Years. I didn't have a stamp I really wanted to use for this card, so I made my own sentiment with ink and a water painter.

Last but not least use sticky notes or printed copy paper inside your cards so that the recipient can re-use them! You can even have messages pre-printed onto them for even easier card sending.

The “pokey” end of a Take Your Pick Tool is perfect for placing those pre-tied bows (you did pre-tie your bows and stick them onto glue dots right?) onto your card for a finishing touch! Just don’t jab yourself...

I like to use liquid glue especially when creating large quantities of cards because it’s cheap, forgiving, and easy to pick up and use when I’m in “speed stamping” mode. I keep it open in a container on my desk so I can just pick it up and go!

Shana Tova!

Today is Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Year. Actually it started at sundown yesterday, but I thought I'd wait for this morning to make this post. I didn't have a great sentiment for this #stampingdiversity card I wanted to make, so I made my own with watercolor paper, ink, and a water painter. It was easier than I expected to write and make this beautiful tag. I accented it with some lovely DSP and metallic foil and ribbon from the Gilded Autumn suite. I also made this card "backwards" so it opens on the left as Hebrew is written right to left. Learn more about this holiday here: Rosh Hashanah
