Happy Birthday Thinlit Twist Card

Happy Birthday Thinlits by Stampin Up


It can be tough to take a good photo of the foil papers so you are just going to have to trust me – this card is striking.


Basic Black and Copper team up to make this birthday card that adds just a little twist to the Happy Birthday Thinlit Die. Literally.

Angle the die and Basic Black card stock as you put them through the Big Shot. Then cut out a second piece from the copper foil. Using the trimmer, cut the copper piece at the same angle. If necessary, use a straight edge to mark your cut.

Finally, assemble the card including the Happy Birthday Gorgeous greeting.

Festive Flurry Banner Card

Festive Flurry Banner Card


I wouldn’t have said that Festive Flurry was my favorite stamp set in the Holiday 2013 Catalog when I first looked at it but I love it! It is a little pricier but so versatile – cards, tags, gift packaing, home decor and more. If you only buy one stamp set for Christmas, I think this should be it. 

Festive Flurry stamp set (Clear #131781 $36.95, Wood #131778 $48.95) and matching Festive Flurry Framelits available separately or as a Bundle & Save (Clear #133285 $57.95, Wood #133284 $67.95).


I made a frame with my Festive Flurry Framelits for the Big Shot a few days ago and just had it sitting on my desk. I decided to stamp a snowflake to go behind it and used dimensionals to separate the layers. From there, the banner just came together. All of the paper is from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack. In this stack, you receive 48 sheets of card sized paper in 4 designs. The greeting is from Christmas Messages (wood #131790 $36.95, Clear #131793 $25.95, Set of 9) and was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink

Raspberry and Champagne Snow Flurry

 Snow Flurr Bigz Die Card

I really, really wanted to use the new Champagne Glimmer Paper on a card for my Christmas Card class last week. So I made this one. Champagne Glimmer Paper – even the name sounds rich and indulgent, doesn’t it?.

To make this card, I cut out the largest snowflake from Raspberry Ripple card stock and then cut out a second large snowflake from the Champagne Glimmer paper. I cut this snowflake in half and adhered it over the Raspberry Ripple snowflake.

The two smaller snowflakes were cut out of Whisper White card stock and centered over the large snowflake and glued with Mini Glue Dots. A large Pearl Basic Jewel in the middle completed the snowflake. 

The "Noel" greeting is from the Greeting of the Season stamp set and stamped in Raspberry Ripple ink on Whisper white card stock. I notched the right edge with the 1-1/4" square punch and attached it just hanging off the edge of the card. I liked this look and it still fits in an envelope.

Flower Garden Embossing Folder

Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder


I love messy stamping! Today I just had to get my hands dirty. I was smooshing craft ink on paper, had embossing powder from one end of the table to the other and generally just left a huge mess everywhere. And it felt good!

Cleaning up didn’t feel so good but a clean work surface is just a reason to start again, right?!


For this "messy" card, I embossed on Basic Black cardstock with the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the Big Shot and sprayed Silver Foil Smooch Spritz over the cardstock. Once dry, I layered the Basic Black cardstock onto Brushed Silver cardstock and added a length of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding to the card.

Next, I adhered this piece to a card of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

To finish, I added "Thanks" from the Thank You Kindly stamp set and circle punched the greeting. The "bow" is three pieces of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding held together with a Silver Glimmer Brad

This ended up being a really simple card to make. If you needed an elegant thank you card for a wedding, anniversary, business or just because, I recommend this one.
