Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are able to be with family and friends. I am so thankful for all of you who help support my blog. I hope you have an opportunity to reflect on what you are thankful for. I find that “an attitude of gratitude” really helps me stay positive. Enjoy your day!
Hello and welcome to our Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for October 2022. I’m so happy you are joining me today! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world taking part in training to help us build a successful Stampin’ Up! business and reach some goals we have set. We are just starting a new Stampin’ Up! year.

Merry Christmas! Chag Hanukkah sameach! Season’s Greetings! Happy Kwanzaa! Wishing you warmth and peace this December Winter Solstice! Happy Holidays! Wishing you all warmth and togetherness during this special time of year!
Today’s card is a special greeting to everyone, no matter your beliefs, to wish you light, happiness and peace in the coming year! “Peace on earth will come to stay, when we live Christmas every day”- Helen Steiner Rice.
Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts today. I am participating in The Paper Players Color Challenge #549.
I just love these particular colors and thought they would be perfect for this card. I participated in a Mystery Stamping with Lorraine Masters Green in my stamping club. I believe she go the idea for this layout from Sharon Armstrong.
The recipe for this card is: Misty Moonlight: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 inches; Just Jade: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches; Basic White: 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches, scrap for sentiment and punch; and Pattern Party Designer Series Paper: five 1 x 1 inch pieces. The card is embellished with the Bumblebee Trinkets. The stamp set is Stampin’ Up! Plentiful Plants. The punch I used is the Everyday Label Punch.
Hello fellow stampers, crafters and card makers! I am going to have to resume Fun Fold Friday next Friday. I received my vaccination and have been experiencing a great deal of muscle aches and fatigue. I am sure I will recover by next week so that I can get Simple Stamping Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday Techniques and Fun Fold Friday to you.
Wow! Christmas is almost here! It seems I have been making Christmas cards forever! Today’s Stampin’ Up!® Merry Moose Christmas Cards are very special because they are for my customers. I love my customers! They are the life of my business. With this in mind, the Stampin’ Up!® Statement of the Heart is really true for me “To love what we do and share what we love as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments, in this we make a difference.”
The Merry Moose stamp set and Moose Punch are just so fun! And the “Merry Christmoose” sentiment adds a little humor. The background for the card is from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper (DSP). So, let’s get started!
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 /12 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Pretty Peacock CS: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches and 7/8 x 3 7/8 inches; Feels Like Frost DSP: 3 3/4 x 5 inches; Whisper White CS: 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches; Soft Suede CS: 3 x 4 inches and Cherry Cobbler CS: 1 1/2 x 2 inches. Alternatively, on some cards I used Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Highland Heather and Shaded Spruce in place of the Pretty Peacock.
Starting with the Soft Suede ink, stamp the inside of the Whisper White CS card base with the little racoon and then with the sentiment “enjoy the stillness of the season”. Similarly, stamp the moose onto the Soft Suede CS on one side. Note: Remember to use a catalog, magazine, or the Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a great image with the Photopolymer Stamps.
Switching to the Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the sentiment “Merry Chrismoose” onto the right hand side of the 3/4 x 3 7/8 inch Whisper White CS. Continuing with the Cherry Cobbler ink stamp the scarf onto the Cherry Cobbler CS.
Putting it all Together
Fussy cut the scarf and then use the Moose Punch to punch out the moose. Next use adhesive to adhere the scarf to the moose, and the sentiment strip to the 7/8 x 3 7/8 inch Pretty Peacock CS.
Apply adhesive to the Feels Like Frost DSP and then adhere it to the Pretty Peacock CS. Next adhere the card piece to the front of the Whisper White CS card base. To top it off add the sentiment strip.
Complete the card by using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the moose to the card front on the sentiment strip.
Viola! You have made a fun Christmas card! I am trying to send one to every customer. If I perchance miss you, please leave me a comment or PM me on my Facebook page HERE.
Over the first 15 days of December I made 15 Christmas cards for you to see on my Home page HERE.
Thank you all for joining me today for this jolly Christmas card. I hope you all have a very safe and joyous Holiday Season!

Since saying “Thank You” to others is such an important gesture I decided to break from the Halloween and Fall cards to make a fun Thank You card that uses the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP). Artistry Blooms is one of the many Designer Series Papers currently available for 15% off. More on that below.
I just love the Artistry Blooms DSP because of all the bright colors and abstract patterns.
Measurements: Whisper White Card Stock (CS): 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches and 2 x 4 inches; Mango Melody CS: 3 x 5 inches; Magenta Madness CS: 2 x 4 1/4 inches; Artistry Blooms DSP: 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches and 1 3/4 x 4 inches.
Peaceful Moments is a really great sentiment stamp set for the beginner. It has most of the major categories included: Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Sympathy, and Thank you.
Using Magenta Madness ink, stamp the sentiment “Thank You” onto the 2 x 4 inch Whisper White CS. Punch the sentiment out with the Timeless Label Punch. Believe it or not, that is it for the stamping.
Adhere the 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches Artistry Blooms DSP to the 3 x 5 inches Mango Melody CS. Then adhere the 1 3/4 x 4 inch Artistry Blooms DSP to the 2 x 4 1/4 inch Magenta Madness CS.
Fold the 4 1/4 x 11 inch Whisper White CS at the 5 1/2 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold. Adhere the Mango Melody CS and DSP card piece to the left side of the card front. I try to leave a white border on the left side, the top and the bottom that are roughly equal, about 1/4 inch. Add the Magenta Madness CS and DSP card piece so that the right white border is the same as the left white border.
Use the Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment “Thank You” to the card front. This card is perfectly fine the way it is. However, I wanted to add some butterflies and Bling! to dress the card up a bit.
I cut a 2 inch strip of the Artistry Blooms DSP in a pattern that would show up against the two patterns already on the card. I punched out one large and two small butterflies with the Butterfly Duet Punch.
I used the Bone Folder to curl the ends of the butterfly’s wings.
I put them on the card and moved them around until I felt I had a nice balance.
Now for the Bling! I used the 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots in the Magenta Madness and Bumble Bee colors in the center of the butterflies.
Viola! You have a colorful thank you card to send off! A card that expresses gratitude is really beneficial not only to the recipient of the card but also to the sender. I think if the card is made by the sender, the sender benefits even more! Good feelings all around!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I really enjoy hearing your comments, so let me know what you think. Also, please like my post. Thank you!
Hello creative people! I am going on a road trip with my husband to see my Army son in Kentucky. I will be out of touch until October 20, 2020. We decided it would be safer to drive, but now there is Hurricane Delta that will be in our path. Wish us luck!
