Today is another of my Stamp Club Fall Swap cards. It also fits perfectly with the challenge from Global Design Project #163. That is to celebrate Stampin’ Up!’s 30th Anniversary/Birthday. And to share what we all love about Stampin’ Up!. For me, Stampin’ Up! is the definition of Friends and Sharing. I have made some fabulous and longtime friends through Stampin’ Up!. I cherish them all and am so thankful for what brought us together. So my card today fits perfectly on that idea of a Grateful Heart.
Falling For Leaves, 147680
I shared this type card once before on a Blog Hop. It is the Double Z Fold Step card. It sounds complicated but is super easy to make. I love easy that packs a WOW.
This card layout does require designer series paper. On this one, I mixed some DSP. My favorite part is the sentiment though. I LOVE that saying, as well as the mixture of fonts. I am crazy for a mix of fonts.
Here is a side view of the Double Z.

I hope I still have my loyal followers here today. I had an awesome two week vacation in France, but now I am back to share new projects with you.
The weather in France was warmer than expected and I came home to a bit cooler temperatures. That was an unexpected pleasure. This put me in the holiday spirits, plus realizing that Halloween is in two days! Yikes!!! So I covered all of the upcoming holidays in one project for you. And it is a quick one as well.
Kraft Pillow Boxes, 147018
I created treat boxes for each of the upcoming holidays. All of these were really quick. I could have kept going on each one of the themes. With the Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and great seasonal stamp sets, the ideas are just endless for decorating these little boxes.
The great part of these boxes are the price. You get 10 boxes for $5.00. That is an awesome deal! They are large enough to hold a variety of candies or small gifts. These are fairly basic in the designs. I can see the beauty in coming up with a theme and creating a basket of these to have by your door for holiday guests or to take to a gathering.
Thank you for visiting today. I really appreciate you hanging around for my return from vacation. The supplies I used on the boxes are all listed at the bottom of the post.
I have a quick and bright card to share with you today. I inked up the Falling For Leaves stamp set for the first time. I can just imagine several ways of using the large leaf. Oh My!! But today’s is quick, and simple. I am not saying clean though. LOL !! I did the smooshing technique and I usually get a little messy with that.
Falling For Leaves, 147680
As you can see, my smooshing is messy! I intentionally only did it to one side for a bit different look. I used Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, and Calypso Coral re-inkers for the technique. I actually made a couple of backgrounds at the same time. This one turned out the best I believe.
Thank you for stopping by today! I greatly appreciate it. All of the supplies I used, as limited as they are, are at the bottom of the post. I hope you will come back tomorrow to see a new project.
Today’s card is a sneak peek at one of the stamp sets I was anxious to get my hands on. It has a 3D look to the bow that intrigued me. And Yes, it really does have that look so it appears like a real bow. I am not sure if you can tell from the photograph though.
Wishing You Well, 147864
There are a couple of newer stamp sets that have this look, but the bow seems to really look 3D and I adore it! I see this stamp set in every season of the year. This one is definitely a keeper for me.
I love this sentiment as well. It is from the new Many Blessings stamp set. Today as a SU Demonstrator, we get to register for the Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary On Stage Celebration. I feel it is a Blessing that I get to do something that I love so much, and share it with all of you. Plus I have met some really amazing people, customers and fellow demonstrators, that have become great friends. So Yay for today.
Now back to the card. I paired one of my favorite new colors, Mango Melody with Fresh Fig. I have not used Fresh Fig very often and each time I ask myself why I have not. It is a great color. The DSP is from the Country Lane Suite. Another Must Have stamp set, Bundle, I want it all!!!
The little sprigs were added for just a little texture. They are made with the new Sprig Punch which is part of the Frosted Suite. An unexpected, but nice add on for a lot of layouts.
Thank you for visiting today. I appreciate it very much. Normally my supplies are listed at the bottom of the page. But because these are not available yet, I had difficulties getting the links. Once I can figure that out I will update this post. So sorry!!
Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Thank you for joining me in this blog hop! My wrap it up project is the 3-D gift I made as a gift. This is my first post on a 3-D project. I feel like I was channeling my inner Julie DiMatteo when I made it. HaHa!!!!! Julie is the 3-D Queen, and a great friend. Although this project is from another SU Demonstrator’s YouTube video, www.positivelypapercraft.co.uk
Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.
Year of Cheer DSP, 144640
I used the same DSP as the demonstrator did in her video. It was just perfect for what I needed. Any of SU’s thicker DSP would be wonderful. I changed the inner part to just Thick Whisper White card stock. I have already made a few in different colors as gifts. They really are easy to make. I cannot wait to give them out.
I have also made templates for the top and the bottom. I have not braved making a video tutorial yet, but this is one I would love to do. I found a few tricks that worked for me. I also used the 1 3/8″ circle punch instead of the Layering Circles Framelits that the other lady used.
Here are the templates I made. Hopefully they will make sense. If not, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira at Shawn Stamps. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Before I get to the card for today. I apologize for being late with my post. Goodness, sometimes life just gets in the way!!
Also, I want to let you know that my next post will not be until Thanksgiving. I am going on a wonderful trip to Europe with friends. I return on the 20th and I know will be seriously jet lagged. I do not seem to bounce back from these as quickly anymore. Can you relate??? Anyway, I wanted to let my regular followers know not to expect me for the next two weeks. The hubby will be home with the animals , but unfortunately neither he or the four legged children care about keeping the blog going. I know it is shocking!!
So now on to the card. As I mentioned on the Gate Fold card I did earlier in the week, my club did a card swap with a fold challenge. This is another one of the folds that was shared. I have cased it and made my own version. This one is from Velda North.
County My Blessings, 144790
I love the acorns in the diamond shape as the focal point. I do have to say that the DSP and the Lemon Lime Twist around the acorns are the stars of the show. It looks like a normal card (if there is such a thing) but it opens only partially. Here is the inside view.
Even with the somewhat partial opening of the card, this is another super easy to make. And I can think of a lot of cute DSP to use for the front. Even using two different patterns would be great I do believe.
I have added measurements and directions under the measurements. The supply list is at the bottom of the page.
Thank you so much for visiting today, Especially since it is this late post. And remember to check back the week of Thanksgiving to see more of my creations.
