Welcome to my Stamp It Christmas in July post.
I’m excited to give you a small introduction to the Whimsy and Wonder Suite that will be available in the July – December Mini Catalog releasing on August 3, 2021. Note: I will update the product links when the catalog goes live.
I have to say, I had mixed feelings about this suite at first. I liked the whimsy trees, I liked some of the color combinations but I wasn’t sure of the combination together. Now I can’t wait to create more with it. The hardest part will be using the DSP. (I’m working on that problem in general Ha-Ha!)
Look at this Holly paper!!
- Berries in Blushing Bride
- Leaves in Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron
- Hint a Holographic trim
How do you get over cutting it, putting adhesive on it and covering it up to display the other side. I could use my paper with a little less stress if they banned double sided DSP.
Here’s a sneak peek at the trees. Originally, I thought I was going to die cut one or more trees to use. So I arranged on my scrap to do all at once. Might see a few more in the background. 😉
As I looked at the other stamps, 🐿 squirrel moment 🐿 I instantly envisioned the word Joy for my tree topper. As my card has had a moment to ‘rest’, I think it needs more around my tree. It might be snow or gems.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.

Welcome to the Stamp It Summer – Patriotic Blog Hop
I decided I would try my hand at the blending technique using the Stampin Blend alcohol based markers and 91% alcohol on vellum. I’ve seen several posts that people can not find this high of percentage. You can find the 91% alcohol at Target or try a local pharmacy.
Using Real Red and Night of Navy in the darks, I scribbled blocked sections leaving empty or white space. Obviously there is no white blend so you have to create the illusion. I can be somewhat challenged with techniques so it took a few variations of using two colors to create red, white and blue while being happy with it and not making grape 😂😂 We are our own worst critics at times aren’t we!
It was never my intention to emboss the word friend. I poured the loose embossing powder off towards the bottom instead of off to the side. Surprisingly, my ink was still wet enough to pick up the embossing powder, so I went with it. I placed upon the Pacific Blue Card base.
As a result, my future attempt will be to make my vellum layer smaller and add a Basic Black layer to help the vellum layer pop.

Good Saturday morning for those of you joining us on the first day of the Father’s Day theme blog up by Stamp It group.
Today I am showing you a cute #SimpleStamping card that can be used for any occasion, not just Father’s Day. My Pale Papaya example you will see it was just a matter of doing some basic cutting. OK, so maybe it was because I’m still putting stuff away from our move or I have too much stuff and I couldn’t find my stitched rectangle dies. 😬

Welcome to the Stamp It Group Easter Blog Hop
On March 1st, I issued 6” x 6” OSW (One Sheet Wonder) challenge to the team members of Kim’s Paper Krafters. I thought it would be fun to add that to this month’s blog hop. its a technique that has been around for awhile and often forgotten.You can create your own template or find many on Pintrest.
I added a 1/2” strip of Mint Macaron at 6” long to ensure perfect length to cut even with the card base. In playing with my layouts, I found I did like a thinner strip. You could also use ribbon or other paper.

My card base is in Misty Moonlight 4 1/2” x 11” scored at 5 1/2”. Then you will cut 2 3/4” off of one side (put to the side – we will use that piece a bit later).
Now cut 2 pieces of DSP
* 1” x 4” (set aside)
* 2 1/2” x 4” (This piece will go on the short flap of your card base)
Cut 2 pieces of Basic White
* 5 1/4” x 4” (inside of card. Take the 1” x 4” strip of DSP you set aside and overlap your white and card base just a bit)
* 2 1/2” x 4” (Will adhere to the 2 3/4” piece we set aside from our card stock. You might want to stamp first)
