Beautiful Journal to Personalize

Did you know Stampin' Up has a journal in the Pressed Flowers Suite?  It's spiral bound with a lovely embossed cover.  I've decorated mine with Designer Series Paper from the Pressed Flowers suite, and the unique Pressed Flowers washi tape.  Use the petals to form a flower! Thanks to Missy Shipman of Glad Heart Stampers for this journal and supplies to decorate it.  She gave them to us at our 20 year celebration yesterday.  This is how I decorated mine.

Winter Woods Holiday Card

Its July, but it's not too soon to start making Christmas cards!  The 2019-2020 Holiday Card isn't out yet, but there are beautiful Christmas stamp sets in the Annual Catalog.  Winter Woods is on page 71 of the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  I love this stamp set because it is so versatile, not only for holiday stamping, but other occasions as well.  

This card is made using the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes set (page 37, 2019-2020 AC).  These are beautiful, pre-made card bases with matching envelopes.  How easy is that?  I wanted to bring out the lovely silver edging on the front of this card.  So, I've heat embossed the background trees and the sentiment with silver embossing powder. A touch of gold is added with the 3/8" metallic ribbon and gold Faceted Gem.  

I've used a tree made from the Gold Foil sheet and one made from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  Which one do you like?  I lean toward the Sparkle Glimmer Paper.  It does not show up well in these photos, but the tree cut from the Sparkle Glimmer paper really shines!  The trees are cut using In the Woods dies, page 193 in the 1919-2020 AC.

Here is the card recipe:


Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards and Envelopes

Basic Black cad stock 4 1/4 x 3 1/4

Gold Foil Paper, or Sparkle Glimmer paper

Stamp set:

Winter Woods


Versamark Ink

Embellishments: Gold Faceted Gem, Metallic Edge Ribbon


Silver embossing powder, Heat tool, Mini Glue Dots, Snail Adhesive





Run embossing buddy across basic black card stock.  Stamp background trees toward top of black card stock with Versamark Ink.  Cover with silver embossing powder and tap off excess.  Heat with heat tool until shiny and set.  Stamp sentiment with Versamark Ink, cover with embossing powder and heat until set.

Adhere ribbon to lower part of card stock.  Add glue dot to hold in place.  

Adhere card stock to card base.

Adhere tree to front with dimensionals.  

Add Gold Faceted Gem.
