Joyful Holly Simply Saturday

 As if I didn't have enough to do I am going to try and start posting on Saturdays.  I am sure it is not a new phrase but I will call it "Simply Saturday" where I will feature simple cards.  Usually only one stamp set and as few layers as possible.

Today's submission is using the Joyful Holly stamp set from Stampin' Up!.  This stamp set just screams simple.  It has two pieces of holly and some berries and that's about it but oh what you can do with those simple stamps.

 
So lovely and so simple.  I did use a second stamp set for the sentiment and on the inside I stamped a second piece of the smaller holly just to add some color to the inside.  For FREE printable instructions and supplies lists go to the tams site through the number below.  No video for this one it's just so simple you won't need one.

Prized Peony Casing The Catalog

 Hello and welcome to my weekly "Casing the Catalog" blog post.  Each week I case cards that you can see in the current catalog and let you know how you can reproduce them.  I do my best to be exact but I don't always own everything that is used so I  have to improvise.  The catalogs are a great place to get inspiration.  When I started out stamping I almost always cased or copied cards others had made and I would feel guilty for doing so but I have come to discover that the very reason we put out ideas is so that you can copy them and this is certainly true of the catalog.  I still produce originals as well and those post every Friday so subscribe to my blog and YouTube channel so you can see those.

The smokey air is keeping me inside as it is really thick out there so I have time to make some cards and videos and maybe even get a little bit ahead.  We'll see how that goes.

Here are today's "CASED" cards from pages 82 and 83 of the Annual 2020-21 catalog and featuring the Prized Peony bundle.


I am looking forward to making some of my own designs with this set.  There is a lot of versatility here and the flower is really quite pretty and not as hard to make as you might think.  Check out my video tutorial on YouTube to see how to build the flower.

Beautiful You Blast From The Past

  I am really digging into the past for this stamp set.  Beautiful You was introduced in the Occasions Catalog of 2017 according to my records.  It was just discontinued this past year which tells you how popular it was and probably still is to many of you.  I made two cards bringing new life to the stamp set with new colors, dies and stamps to coordinate with it.


I like them both but I think if I had to choose I would choose the bottom one.  What do you think?  Let me know.  Comment below and share my blog link with your friends  and I will send the gently used stamp set to a randomly selected person for FREE!  So if you don't have this stamp set you have a chance to get it. 

For FREE printable instructions and supplies lists just tap on the TAMS number.
