In the Woods - Enjoy the Season by Tammy C. Wilson

12.19.18…. Happy Wednesday, my Stampin’ friends!  As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m using the last week before Christmas to share just a few more cards.  That being said, I created another card with the Winter Woods Bundle.  I love the versatility of this bundle!  I’m also super excited that the Winter Woods stamp set and coordinating In the Woods Framelits set will be carried over AFTER the 2018 Holiday catalog comes to an end on January 2, 2019.  (FYI:  After January 2nd, both products will be sold separately, and not as a bundle.)  So…..if you happen to miss out on these fabulous products, you’ll still have an opportunity to order them after the holidays are over.

All Hearts Come Home by Tammy C. Wilson

12.18.18….. I don’t know about y’all, but I just love the Hearts Come Home stamp set.  It is the sweetest little set (with its tiny houses and trees), and it just really evokes cozy, holiday memories for me.  By the way, this set is in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, so it will still be available after the holidays.  Yay!

In the Woods - Tis the Season by Tammy C. Wilson

12.18.18….. It’s hard to believe that Christmas Day will be here in just one week!  Since past few weeks have just flown by, I decided that I’d try to squeeze in a few more holiday cards while I can.   So here you go, my Stampin’ friends…

joy to the world…

11.25.18 …..I hope all of you survived Thanksgiving weekend, and were also able to enjoy some time with friends and family.  Once I finally had some free time this weekend, I couldn’t wait to start creating some holiday cards and projects.  One of my favorite bundles from of the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog is Winter Woods (Winter Woods stamp set + In the Woods Framelits).  It’s really versatile and can be used for everyday projects as well. If you don’t have this bundles already, it is defintely one you don’t want to miss out on!

hello friend…

Winter Woods - Hello Friend by Tammy C. Wilson.jpg

11.11.18…..Even though the hectic holiday season is upon us, it’s still a nice time to let a friend know that you’re thinking of them.  I did use some shades of Autumn on this card, but of course you can change it up by using a different color combo and/or a different sentiment.

thanks for everything…

All Things Thanks - Thanks for Everything by Tammy C. Wilson

11.03.18…..Ok my stamping friends, I realize it’s already November, and the Christmas season is upon us (…especially if you been to your local mall lately).  However, I’m still trying to soak in those last few of weeks of Fall, and remembering that we still have Thanksgiving to celebrate and to appreciate all of the many blessings I have.  So…I just had to make another card with the Country Lane Designer Series Paper.  And, yes…if you haven’t noticed, I’m obsessed with it!  The color combinations are absolutely gorgeous….from Blackberry Bliss and Crushed Curry, to Mint Macaron and Early Espresso, and even Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.  I love them all!

Winter Woods - Enjoy the Season by Tammy C. Wilson

11.03.18…..The title of this blog post should really be “enjoy the seasons” (…instead of “season”).  I know many people have a favorite season, but I just really do love both the Fall and Winter seasons equally!  That being said, I wrapped both seasons up in this one little card, and used a mix of seasonal products.  The Country Lane Designer Series Paper has an Autumn Harvest feel, while the Winter Woods Bundle obviously has a Winter theme.

always thankful…

Woodland - You're the Best Thanks by Tammy C. Wilson

10.28.18…..While this is the time of year that we always focus on being thankful, I think we would all agree that the best time of year to be thankful is…..always!  That being said, I started this card with the “Thanks” sentiment, which had ended up in a corner of my craft table (along with several bits and pieces that I ended up not using on other projects).  I challenged myself to  “repurpose” some of those bits and pieces, and pulled them together to create this card.  I hope this card inspires you to do the same!

Takeout Treats - Buffalo Check by Tammy C. Wilson

10.10.18….. I just love all of the fun Halloween decor (…jack-o-lanterns, spider webs, scarecrows, etc.) this time of year!  O.K., let’s be honest….it’s the sweet treats that I really love the most!  I always enjoy giving out sweet treats to my friends and co-workers as well, and this adorable little takeout box is just perfect for that.  I diecut the box, using the Takeout Thinlits Dies, which is part of the Takeout Treats Bundle.  If you don’t already have it, you’ll want to order this super versatile bundle….and save 10% too!

Celebrate You Thinlits - Amazing Friend by Tammy C. Wilson

09.09.2018….. This weekend just about slipped away from me!  I can’t believe it’s already Sunday afternoon, and I wanted to make sure that I shared this card with you before the weekend was completely over.  I truly love every color that Stampin’ Up! has to offer, but I’m especially fond of the Subtles color collection.  The soothing, pastel shades really speak to me!

Labels to Love - Give Thanks by Tammy C. Wilson

08.26.18….. OK, let’s just get right to it, my stamping friends!  I know what your thinking.  Thanksgiving is still three months away, and she’s already posting a seasonal card!  I can explain…..

As a SU demonstrator, I was able to pre-order from  the new Stampin’ Up! 2018 Holiday Catalog.  (Customer orders can be placed between September 5 – January 2, 2018.)  This new catalog is chockful of so many amazing products!  That being said, I pre-ordered several items from the Country Lane Suite, which has a country/harvest theme, and I just couldn’t wait to get going on some new Fall projects.

I also couldn’t wait to create a card for the latest Global Design Project (#GDP152 – CASE the Designer), so I decided to incorporate that into my card design as well.

Not only because the temperatures will be cooler (…yay!!!), but I just love all of the beautiful Autumn colors that nature gives us during that wonderful time of year! That being said, I went a little crazy, and created several cards using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper. Since I couldn’t decide which card to post, I decided to post them all in a series that I’m calling “Nature Week”. Yes, my stamping friends… because I’ve become obsessed with this gorgeous paper, I will be posting a new card each weekday this week (Monday – Friday). I hope you enjoy them!

I love mixing vintage with trendy, or modern, or florals, or…..with whatever inspires me at the time.  The P.S. I Love You stamp set has that fun little mix…..all in one box.  The focal point of the set is the vintage typewriter.  But wait…this stamp set also includes some trendy little sentiment stamps, a modern “grunge” stamp, and some super cute floral stamps.  I like to call it “modern vintage”.  Even better…..all of these stamps are great to use individually, with or without the typewriter.  Versatility at it’s best!

07.04.18…  I’m so excited about the Stampin’ Up 2018 Color Revamp!  I’m having so much fun with the all of the new colors…..and many of my old favs that have returned, too!  While I have to say that I’m naturally drawn to the Subtles Collection, I do like to mix Subtles with Brights, or Regals with Neutrals, or….y’all get the idea.  That being said, today I was actually in the mood to mix things up.  Petal Pink is one of my new favs in the Subtles collection, and Coastal Cabana has returned (…super excited about that!), and been added to the Brights Collection.  Even though this card has a bit of a vintage feel, using both of these colors together adds a summery/beachy appeal as well.

05.30.18… Today was one of those days when I didn’t have a specific card layout or color combo in mind, until…I saw this week’s Global Design Project #GDP140). So…I decided to just start with a blank canvas (…a.k.a. Whisper White Cardstock). Next, I pulled out my new Detailed With Love stamp set …which, by the way, is quickly climbing up the charts as one of my “Top 10 Favorite Stamp Sets”! Such a versatile set! With the super adorable sentiments and trendy embellishment stamps, you just can’t go wrong!

A Good Day - Hey Friend by Tammy C Wilson

05.27.18… As so many of you do, I also send out cards for birthdays, holidays, weddings, …you name it.  But… sometimes it’s nice to send a card to a friend “just because”.  I especially like to do this for friends that I don’t get to see often.  It’s such a nice way to say “Hey, friend…I’m thinking of you today”.  And…what a fun surprise!

Share What You Love - Happy Birthday by Tammy C. Wilson

05.26.18…I am having the best time ever with all of the amazing new colors and products from the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalog!  And…I could wait to use my new Petal Pink Cardstock to make this Spring-themed birthday card.  Oddly enough…today it’s 48 degrees outside, dark, rainy, and almost wintry.  Hey…I’m not complaining though, summer is literally just around the corner, and it’ll be 100+ degrees before you know it!
