Stampin' Up! Trio of Evergreen Forest Embossed Metallic Trees Moose Card for the Stamper's Showcase October 2020 Blog Hop


Welcome to the October 2020 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month's theme is all about embossing techniques.
One of my favorite forms of embossing is dry embossing using Stampin’ Up!’s fantastic embossing folders.  
The new Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is amazing!  It’s easy to overlook in the catalog, but it makes such an impact on card.  I just love the way this trio of Metallic Cardstocks looks when embossed with the Evergreen Forest folder and used as the backdrop for our Moose punched from the woodgrain pattern of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper!  I thought the “Wildly Grateful” sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set was fitting and stamped it in Early Espresso ink.
Shaded Spruce Card Base 5-1/2” x 11”
Early Espresso 3-3/4” x 5”
Trio of Brushed Metallics 1-1/2” x 3-1/2” (one of each metallic)
Whisper White 1-3/4” x 2-1/2” punch with Story Label Punch

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Mini Calendar & Notepad Desktop Easel for the Creative Cardiology Team October 2020 3D Blog Hop


Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team October Blog Hop!  this month we're sharing 3D projects - like fun giftable items.  I picked up a cut pineapple themed mini calendar & notepad set at the Dollar Tree the other day and decided to transform it into a fun desktop easel. 
I used Just Jade cardstock as my easel base since that best matched the pineapple that was printed on the notepad.  Then I used my Timeless Tropical stamp set & dies and die cut the little flowers from the colorful Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper Pack to decorate the cover.
Here's what it looks like folded into an easel to reveal the notepad inside.  
I think it turned out pretty cute!  What do you think?  If you'd like more details I made a quick video tutorial for you that you can watch at  I hope you'll take a look!
Just Jade Cardstock 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 2-3/4", 5-3/8", and 5-5/8"
Whisper White Cardstock 2-1/8" x 4"

Tropical Escape Card for the Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop October 2020


Welcome to the Maui Trip Achievers October 2020 Blog Hop!  Thank you for visiting my blog The card I've created for you today is a bit of a collage of many things that in my mind are representative of Maui - the sun, beautiful water, palm trees, and boating.  And since our original Maui trip from this Summer has been rescheduled to next May, and the uncertainty of what travel conditions will be then - I chose the sentiment "Set sail in the direction of your dreams."  At this point our Maui trip is still a far off dream.  One that I hope will come true!
I pulled out several stamp sets to create my collage - Sailing Home, Sending Sunshine, and Timeless Tropical, and I think they worked really well together.  I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to create the frame around the focal image.
Here's a close up so you can get a better look at all the different stamped elements.
Thank you for visiting our Maui Trip Achievers Blog Hop, and my blog!  I hope you enjoyed my "Maui" card and a bit of a creative escape to a tropical location.  Be sure to check out the video of my creative process and how I made this card at
