Four of 4 Sprinkles of Life ideas

Here's the last card of the 4 ideas I made up to share with the set: "Sprinkles of Life".  Remember that this is the set where Stampin' Up! donates $3 for each stamp set sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Check out this previous post for images of the stamp set and the coordinating punch.  The embossing folder used on the white background can be found in the Holiday Catalog, page 24, Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Holiday Catalogs should be arriving in your mail box any day now. If you haven't received a copy and would like one please just let me know.

3 of 4 designs for: SPRINKLES OF LIFE

In the last 2 posts I have been sharing designs using the Ronald McDonald House Charities set for 2015-16.  
Here is one more card idea which has the Silver Glimmer paper as the silver lining in every cloud....this gorgeous, extra shimmery paper is perfect for this phrase.  
*There is just one trick you need to know to get this look....use the coordinating punch (Tree Builder) and insert the Silver Glimmer paper in the punch with the back (white side) facing "UP" in the punch and the glimmer side facing the bottom of the punch.
Check out the previous post from 2 days ago to see the full stamp set images and the coordinating punch.

Card 2 (of 4) from SPRINKLES OF LIFE set

As explained in my previous post, the SPRINKLES OF LIFE set is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set for this catalog year of 2015-16.  Each stamp set we sell gets $3 donated to this charity from Stampin' Up!.  With fall right around the corner I thought it would be fun to design a card using the bare tree and a fun pile of leaves.  This set has so many fun options from trees, cupcakes, ice cream cones, flowers etc.  It is very versatile.  Don't you just love the fall colors?

Thankful Forest Friends: Bear

This bear is so adorable and makes for a quick and easy card with the Holiday Mini catalog set: Thankful Forest Friends.  The wood grain paper is Designer Series Paper: Into the Woods (also in Holiday Mini).  If  you look closely the white paper is embossed with the wood grain embossing folder so there are lots of textures and layers to this fun card!  Tag is made with the new Ornate Tag Topper punch from page 165 of the current big catalog.  Bear is stamped with the new Archival Basic Black Stampin' Pad...Hip Hip Horray! for having a true BLACK ink pad again.  (pg. 19 of Holiday Mini Catalog #140931 $7.00) Ordering for Holiday Mini: Sept. 1-January 4, 2016.

If you are not on my mailing list and would like a catalog just let me know.

Bold Butterfly Thinlits

This is a fun new card uses my favorite In Color: Watermelon  Wonder

The embossing folder used for the background is called "Fluttering" and it is a new folder in our 2015-16 catalog and these new folders are larger in size.  They are 6x6" and just fit into the Big Shot machine.  Having this larger space allows for choosing your placement or for larger pieces of course. The "Bold Butterfly" Thinlits match up perfectly with the "Watercolor Wings" stamp set which makes a beautiful butterfly cut out.
