Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


Thanks Lori for asking me to host this week’s Mix It Up Monday!  When I asked a few card making friends about  what type of challenge I should host this week, two themes came up…..friends and fall.  I decided to combine the two together.

We all have that great friend in our lives that make us smile whenever we think of him/her.  The challenge to you this week is to create a fall themed card for that special friend.  Once you have completed and uploaded your card, place the card in an envelope and send it to your friend to brighten his/her day.  

Wishing You Well


I created this card for one of the best co-workers I have ever had in my entire work life.  Over the years we have become great friends inside and outside of work.  She has decided to embark on a new career and her life is going in a great direction.  I am so proud of her, but I will miss seeing her every day at work.  

I used stamps, card stock, designer paper and ribbon from the Gina K. Designs “Sun-Kissed Autumn” StampTV kit.  I made the banner from the “6 Banner Flag set” from the Silhouette store and added some sparkle using Crystal Stickles.  To finish it off, I used red gem stones and copper nail heads.

Now it is your turn, I can't wait to see what you make!!!

Don't forget to add the tag:  STV12MON37

Love your card Sean. Maybe I can sneak in a bit of creativity this week. But I need to do more shopping and such for the wedding in a month so not sure if I will bring out many stamp items for awhile.
