Cards, Christmas

Dashing Deer and Detailed Deer Thinlits


This is absolutely the best stamp set and thinlit bundle in the Holiday Catalog! Dashing Deer. You can buy the stamp set and thinlits separately if you want to but you get a 10% discount if you buy them both as a bundle.


I used Merry Merlot Cardstock and Stampin’Pad to create all the cards.


The Copper Glimmer Paper really adds a beautiful touch and coordinates with the copper images in the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper. I inserted the Merry Christmas ( which is not included in this stamp set)  in the center of the panel.

I hope you all like my cards. Just had to display them! Below is a list of supplies I used to make the cards.

Just so you know, the purchase of this bundle alone will earn you 1 Papercraftingtime Point! Good towards a free $50 shopping Spree from me! Be sure to keep track of your points and let me know when you have earned 10 points.

The purchase of this Bundle also qualifies you for my Monthly Host Code Offer. In October the code is CRK4HQNY . More info on this offer can be found here.

Cards, Tools

Stamping with the Stamparatus

I wanted to show you guys how to use the Stamparatus! Believe me once you use this fabulous tool you will wonder how you ever survived without it! You can place your images precisely with this tool, or easily stamp multiples ( like Christmas cards or swaps).

Below are photos showing the steps I took to create my card. I used Sheltering Tree stamp set from the Annual Catalog


The Stamparatus comes with two plates, two magnets, and a foam pad. Use the foam pad when using photopolymer stamps.


Since I find the photopolyer stamps need even more height than the foam cushion supplies, I put a magnet card on top of the foam pad. The photo shows how to place your cardstock in the Stamparatus.


I placed my tree image face down on my cardstock where I want the image to be. Note my stamp is stained and looks like I had already inked it up but it is not inked.


In the above image I closed the lid (you can see the grid lines on the plate) to pick up the stamp on the lid.


You can see the image adhered on the lid. It sticks great! You do not have to push hard on the plate to get it to stick.


I am inking the image with Early Espresso Stampin’Pad. You will get a little ink on the plate but it will not transfer to your cardstock so no worries.


View of image inked

I lowered the lid and gently pushed on the lid to stamp my image.


I am satisfied with my stamped image, but if I wasn’t happy with it I could just re-ink the image and stamp again and the image would be darker. No need to worry the placement is spot on every time.


I place the leaves image where I wanted it, boy that is what I like about photopolymer stamps, you can see through them!!


I purposefully only partially inked the leaves with Old Olive Stampin’Pad.


I cleaned off the stamp and re-inked the image with Crushed Curry Stampin’Pad.


I have a look of leaves changing color.


I wanted to add the grass image, so I placed the image face down and picked it up by lowering the lid and inked it up with Old Olive Stampin’Pad


I wanted to add the rake and falling leaves image so I placed it in the same manner as above and picked it up on the lid by just lowering the lid onto the images. I inked the rake with Early Espresso Stampin’Pad and the leaves with the Crushed Curry Stampin’Pad. It would be easier to use the Stampin’Write Markers in those colors but I did not have them handy.


Here is the completed scene built with the Stamparatus!


Here is my completed card! I used Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla Cardstock. I stamped the greeting with the Early Expresso Stampin’Pad. I added twine that I made from Burlap Ribbon.


If you enjoy papercrafting I hope you consider buying the Stamparatus! Compared to other stamp positioning tools on the market the Stamparatus by Stampin’Up! is much more reasonably priced! It is high quality and you have 2 stamping surfaces that comes with the original Stamparatus purchase as well as a foam pad to use with photopolymer stamps. If using clear mount red rubber stamps you do not need the foam pad as these stamps have a foam cushion already adhered to the image.

Happy Papercrafting,

Fall Cards with the Painted Harvest stamp set


Can you tell I love this stamp set! I promise to move on to another stamp set after this post! It sure is fun to work with. You can do so much with it! This stamp set comes with images to build this flower in layers. It is fun to make flowers in different colors!


I used the Buffalo Check Background stamp to make the center panel. You can find this background stamp in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog.  I stamped the flower with Daffodil Delight Stampin’Pad for the base of the flower and the accent image is stamped with Crushed Curry Stampin’Pad.

Painted Harvest Photopolymer Stamp Set

I made a mask using a large post it note, the same size as my center panel and stamped the leaves with Old Olive Stampin’Pad. I also used the Leaf Punch to punch on the other leaf images. I added a twine bow that I made from the Burlap Ribbon.


Leaf Punch

leaf punch sample card

Here is a card made by the Stampin’Up! home office. Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love it! They used the leaf image in the stamp set to make the background on the card. It looks like they used Garden Green cardstock and the Garden Green Stampin’Pad to do this. To me it looks like the leaf was stamped Soft Suede Stampin’Pad on Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock. It is just perfect! So I plan to CASE this card for sure. The tiny acorn images and the designer series paper band across the bottom portion of the card are from paper that is currently retired. You can see the Burlap Ribbon and the white Twine on the card does add so much interest also. The wooden elements add a wonderful touch too!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today and they inspire you to CREATE!

Ending soon!
