Make A Thanksgiving Card with the Coming Home Bundle

Today's project is a Thanksgiving card made with the awesome Coming Home Bundle [155144] from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.   It's also important to mention that with each purchase of this stamp set, bundle, or suite, Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to charities devoted to adoption, foster care, and infertility as part of our Making A Difference Program.

From the Stampin' Up! Home Office:

At Stampin’ Up!, people are at the heart of everything we do. In addition to bringing people together through creativity, we want to always give back to our communities. The Making a Difference program focuses on ways that employees, demonstrators, and customers around the globe can work together to better the lives of others.

This card made with the Coming Home Bundle [155144] was created during a recent Facebook Live broadcast.  My lives on Facebook are rightfully named "Craft and Chat" because that's what we do!  While a little of the chatter was omitted, I hope you will enjoy the rest of the recording!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Old Olive Base is cut 4-1/4 x 11. Score at 5-1/2.
  • Old Olive pieces- 4-1/4 x 3-1/2 and 4-1/4 x 2-1/2.

Handmade Card of Gratitude with Stampin' Up! Beautiful World

Handmade Card of Gratitude with Stampin' Up! Beautiful World Bundle (English) [154091] from Lisa Brown, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Today's project is a card of gratitude featuring Stampin' Up! Beautiful World.  This bundle and suite of products is absolutely awesome!   It was on my first pre-order as a demonstrator and it was so popular, items in the suite were on backorder until recently.

This card layout was one shared with my Stars team recently.  The dimensions and details were shared and everyone was invited to choose a color scheme, supplies, and stamps to complete the project.  It was fun seeing all the different versions of the same layout.

Here's the how-to video tutorial then read on for more details.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here's the inside of the card.  The Sponge Brayer [141714] added the color to the Whisper White Cardstock [100730] piece that was cut 4 x 5-1/4.

Stars Team Member Testimonial

Why I Continue to Be Member of the Stars Team
Kristen Martin

It’s never been a question for me. I have the best supporting team any crafter would need. I’ve been a hobby demonstrator for most of my time, but I’ve also learned that when the time is right my business will blossom.

Lisa has supported me no matter what my status is. Any questions I’ve had, she's always guided me to solve it. Lisa has given me lots of opportunities to SHINE as a crafter and share many projects. Over the 10 years we have grown close and I consider her a friend. I’m super grateful for the friendships I’ve made being a STAR!
