Ronald McDonald House Charities Set: sailboat thinking of you

This week I'm featuring the Ronald McDonald House Charities Set, "Moving Forward." For every purchase of this stamp set, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The details in this sweet card are the perfect pick-me-up for someone who needs to know you are thinking of them.

The tiny hearts in the Pool Party Designer Series Paper mimic the embossed hearts on the Whisper White card stock. The ribbon slide just looks like it should be on a boat!

Technique Tip: Use the brush end Stampin' Write markers to color directly on your stamp for more visual interest. A quick breath on the stamp will remoisten the ink before you stamp.

Product Tip: The sentiment "thinking of you" is part of the boat stamp, so there is no need to align your stamped images. It's all done in one quick motion - quick and easy!

Ronald McDonald House Charities Set: bicycle and frog thank you

This week I'm featuring the Ronald McDonald House Charities Set, "Moving Forward." For every purchase of this stamp set, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.


This card will put a smile on anyone's face! The bold use of Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green make the card "pop".

Stamping Tip: Stamping with this set is worry free because each part of the image is on it's own block. No need to worry about lining the images up perfectly. Stamping the images with some space in between makes this a very low-stress job.



The detail along the right side of the card comes from the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot, featured in yesterday's scrapbook layout.

A short length of Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin Ribbon and a dahlia in Gumball Green finish the card off quickly and beautifully.

Technique Tip: When attaching a dahlia to ribbon, use a glue dot to adhere. Liquid glue will seep into your ribbon.

Spotlight on Ronald McDonald House set: Birthday Blimp

This week I'm featuring the "Moving Forward" stamp set. With every purchase of this stamp set, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities

Product Highlight: Creating the Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder rick-rack was a snap with the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die for the Big Shot.You can cut multiple layers of card stock, designer series paper, or even fabric at a time!

Technique Highlight: The rosettes are easy to create using the Simply Scored tool to score a 1" x 12" strip of Designer Series Paper at every quarter inch, connecting the ends, and shaping into a circle.



Look closely and you will see that we used the Diagonal Score Plate with the Simply Scored tool to create diagonal lines across our page at two inch intervals, starting at 1". This adds visual interest and allows for perfect placement of the 8.5" x 8.5" Whisper White photo mat.

The Pennant Parade stamp set and Pennant Builder Punch quickly create an adorable banner with some matching Designer Printed Brads holding up the ends.

 The Adorning Accents Edgelits for the Big Shot create these gorgeous swags and the Adoring Accents and Argyle Folders add additional appeal.

Paper Saving Tip: Use the negative left from cutting the swags to add to the right-hand page and create a balanced layout.

My inspiration came from this amazing page on the display boards at the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. If anyone knows the artist, I would love to give credit!
