Bear Hugs for Father

Check out this cute card I received from Leslee using the adorable Bear Hugs stamp set and Framelit Dies found in the Occasions Catalog on page 40.

Bear Hugs SC 2016 Occasions Catalog Swap

Cute right? What father wouldn’t love getting this card?

And you can purchase this set and framelits in a money saving bundle (140822/140823) while supplies last or until May 31st when the Occasions Catalog ends. (While you’ll find these items in our 2016 Annual Catalog they won’t be offered in the Bundle any longer.)

And here are some more wonderful masculine cards I received from my fellow demonstrators in swaps.

This first one was given to me by Trudy. She used the stamp set From Land to Sea (138720/139361) and created the sand dunes using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971).

Clever girl – I love it when you can use stamps and punches for other things!

And finally this card uses one of my favorite sets, Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178).

I love all the texture on this card – It uses the Boho Chic (138286), and  two of our retiring Embossing folders, Honeycomb (129378) and Chevron  (127749).

I can’t pick a favorite. How about you? Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best!

Folded Frames Tutorial & On Stage

As I’m typing this up I’m  getting ready for my Shoe box swap and the first ever Stampin’ Up! On Stage event. Whoo hoo! There isn’t anything I enjoy more than getting together with other stampers and stamping. And this event is sure to be a ton of fun!

Would you like to see what I’ll be sharing at my Shoe box Swap? This card highlights the Folded Frame technique and while it looks difficult it really isn’t – which is always the type of technique I love!

From Land to Sea Folded Frame OnStage Sherrie Shoebox Swap 2015

This card was created using our From Land to Sea stamp set (138720/139361) found on page 83 in the Annual Catalog. I love anything water and turtles so that is where I started when creating this card. (Remember those pet turtles that we had and the little plastic dish with the palm tree to keep them in? Oops I’m probably dating myself, oh well my love affair with turtles started with my first pet turtle.)

Want to know how I made this Folded Frame? Well you’re in luck – I’ve done a quick video tutorial on Folded Frames for you so you can make them too!

So what do you think? Why not give it a try and create your own Folded Frame out of your favorite Designer Series Paper?
