Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for those who have supported me on this journey in papercrafting and teaching.

Today, I wanted to post a card made at one of my Stampin' Thursday Sessions. This fun and happy card was made using the 2021-2023 IN COLORS ink. I've inked some 1" ink spots and used them to design this card.

Other techniques include powder embossing the "Birthday" sentiment in white (part of the Biggest wish stamp set) and die cutting with the Scalloped Contours dies.

Below are the material used to make this card for you convenience. Watch my Youtube video for instructions.

Below are the colors I used to make the stripes on the card.

Stampin' Up November Seasonal Sale


One of the reasons I LOVE Stampin' Up is the coordinating cardstock and ink. My cards look so much more professional with the coordinating colors. I realized that all the color paper and ink colors I purchased from my local craft stores (M... and J...) left me spending WAY too much time figuring out how to match colors instead of having fun making the cards.
