Stamp a Stack using Watercolor Wings and 2014-2016 In Colors

Watercolor Wings
Hi Everyone! This is my Stamp a Stack my local teammates will be making today. We each are bringing a shoebox swap (this is mine) with a Clean and Simple design. We are providing supplies to make 10 cards each. Then we are divvying them up and handing out in a Random Act of Kindness this week! My bank tellers, mail carrier, etc.. will all be getting a happy card this week!

My stamp a stack features the soon-to-be retiring 2014-2016 In Colors. 

If you have ever thought, "I'm not getting my money's worth out of my stamp." I would say Stamp a Stack! Find a clean and simple stamping inspiration like this card! and stamp 10-20 at a time! Just think, if you stamped 20 cards (all in about an hours time) at a retail value of $3 a card...that's $60 worth of cards!! I bet that paid for your stamp, ink and paper!

Have a Cuppa Pop-Up Card #2 in Series

Have a Cuppa Pop-Up Card

Hi Everyone! This is card #2 in a card series that uses pop-ups and the Have a Cuppa product suite by Stampin' UP!  I so wanted to use the lemon paper from the Have a Cuppa Designer Paper Stack. It's so fresh and cheerful!

DSCN5954Here's the front of the card. I am LOVING putting these coordinating Have a Cuppa embellishments on the front of the card. Yes, it will make me add another stamp to the envelope when I mail them, but so well worth it!

TIP! I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the big stamped image on the front. It had some uneven stamping and the Wink of Stella helped blend it together!
