Stamp of the Month Club: First Frost Congratulations Card

You would not believe me if I told you how long I spend designing card kits. It takes me HOURS -- sometimes over several days! I am meticulous about using a small set of ink colors to minimize the products that you'll need to do the projects at home. Then I keep coming back and tweak the design until it's just right. 

That is one of the perks of being part of my Stamp of the Month Club -- you don't have to struggle for hours to get the design just right. Everything will come pre-cut and ready for you to sit down and create right away. The printed instruction sheets and photos will guide you and you'll have all the measurements you need to recreate the projects later on.

I took a few months off from Stamp of the Month Club because it was a busy summer and I just didn't get the extra hours to labor over designing a cohesive collection of cards. I'm back now and ready to jump right into the amazing Holiday Catalog! The stamp set I am featuring in September is First Frost.  This set includes beautiful watercolor florals and sentiments that you'll reach for all year long.

The first card in this month's kit was inspired by a card I saw displayed on Alaska incentive trip in July. It uses two pieces of the Frosted Floral Designer paper. Photos do not do this paper justice. It has a pretty frosted shimmer to the entire sheet. You'll love it!

Control Freaks Blog Tour: 3 Warm Hearted Cards for All Seasons

Whether you are coming from the creative and talented Melissa Davies's blog or just joining us -- welcome to the September 2018 Control Freaks Blog Tour! I am so excited that we are sharing some projects from the brand new Holiday Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog ~ 3 Warm Hearted (Host Stamp Set) Card ~ Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year ~ www.juliedavison.com

I am focusing on the Warm Hearted host stamp set. You can choose this one for free with your host rewards when you order $150 or host a qualifying party. I love this one because it includes sentiments and images for four fall and winter holidays.

The layout for the first card was inspired by a swap card I got from Dawn Olchefske last year. It's a great way to show off a strip of busy designer paper.  Here are the measurements I used for the layers:

  • 4-1/4" x 11" Smoky Slate cardstock, scored at 5-1/2"
  • 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" Basic Black cardstock
  • 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" Gorgeous Grape cardstock
  • 1" x 4-1/2" Toil & Trouble Designer Paper
  • 1/2" x 4-1/2" Gorgeous Grape cardstock
  • 1-1/4" x 3-1/4" Whisper White cardstock

A Tip from my Kids: Enamel Shapes as Earrings


Earlier this month, my girls were looking through the American Girl catalog and found some crazy over-priced earrings that they just "had to have". I broke out my stamp case full of enamel shapes and let them go crazy with stick-on earrings for all their dolls. What luck that the Enamel Shapes are now in the Clearance Rack! You can get a package of 200 -- 20 each of 10 difference colors -- for only $3.60!  The Regals and Subtles assortments are only available while supplies last, so don't miss out! These would make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas if you don't use them in your stamp room!

(While you're shopping, I love storing them in an empty stamp case! I'll include the link below!)

The girls were so excited to star in their own Facebook Live this morning to show off their tip. Check it out!
After we did the video, the girls decided to try on "earrings" to match their dolls.
