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.

Beautiful-world-gratitude-card

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.

Stampin' Up! DIY Home Decor Wreath

Stampin-up-home-decor-wreath

Stampin' Up! DIY Home Decor Wreath from Lisa Brown, Ink and Inspirations

Today's DIY project is one that's been in my thoughts since the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog was in my hands.  It's always so much fun to think of how many different ways we can use our beautiful Stampin' Up! supplies.

With the hope of making this wreath light weight and to use in my studio or on the door, these metal gold hoops from Amazon were just right!
You will also need a hot glue gun.

Let's take a look at the simple how-to video tutorial.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Any combination of color and these dies would be beautiful.
  • I recommend just using a little dab of hot glue for each piece.
  • If you plan to suspend this ring in the center of a space rather than against the wall, just add some die cut leafy stems and a sunflower to the back!
