Counting Sheep Jumping Over a Fence

Have you ever received an interactive card for your birthday? Stampin' Up!'s Sheep stamp set and dies make this card  Turning the wheel to get the sheep to "jump" over the fence will bring a smile to your face. I shared how to create this card at this month's team meeting on Zoom. Usually each month there are 3
This adorable and cute stamp set that has a coordinating die set (shown below) that saves you from cutting around all the sheep! It also includes additional dies to cut a fence, sun and some clouds along with some other non stamped pieces. Both of these items are found in the Sale-A-Bration brochure on pages 10 & 11.
To earn both of these items for free you would need to either place one order of at least $120 or two orders of at least $60 per order before Thu Sep 30/21. With Sale-A-Bration ending next week please keep in mind there is a chance one or both of these items may sell out.

Pretty Cards and Paper - September

Welcome to this month's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop. We are sharing projects created using Stampin' Up!'s Painted Christmas designer series paper (shown below) to help inspire your creativity! To visit the other's blogs scroll down to after the video below to find a list of all the blogs.
This designer series paper is gorgeous and so great to use for your Christmas projects. Especially when paired with other items from the Painted Christmas Suite (pages 16 & 17 of the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue). Although this paper is designed with Christmas in mind you can use it to create projects for other holidays too, like I have for today's card. If you scroll down a bit you will also find a video of a card using Stampin' Up!'s Painted Christmas DSP and the pine cone stamps from the Christmas Season stamp set.
This week you'll see Autumn inspired projects from me, which started on Sun with a leaf card and then a pumpkin card using the same bundle I used today and yesterday on YouTube I shared how to use the Frightful dies to create a Halloween scrapbook layout. Autumn is my favourite time of year with the fall leaves, cooler days and garden harvest time. What is your favourite time of year and why?

Looking for more inspiration for the Painted Christmas designer series paper? Check out one of my recent YouTube videos to learn how to create this pine cone card. If you enjoyed this video please subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Pretty Pumpkins Thankful Card

Pumpkins, Leaves & Autumn! My favourite time of year is here. Cooler days, crisp nights, and the beautiful oranges and reds. On Saturday I was able to participate in a Stampin' Expo put on by another Canadian demonstrator. We used the Pretty Pumpkins stamp set and Detailed Pumpkin dies to create cards and learned from other demonstrators. One of reasons I love being a demonstrator is the chance to meet other demonstrators: to make a new friend, swap card ideas and maybe even learn a tip or technique from them.
The Pretty Pumpkins bundle, shown above, has wonderful detailed die cuts of the pumpkins and leaves as well as dies that will cut out most of the stamp images. What do you think of the 3 die cut pumpkins on the card? For the intricate pumpkin I suggest putting a piece of Adhesive Sheet onto the backside of the cardstock first, then die cut the pumpkin. Saves you from the extra mess of either the liquid glue or the Fine-tip glue.
