Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields + Special Moments Cards

Whenever a new Mini Catalog comes out, I always focus on the new designer paper, ribbon, and embellishments first because it's a great way to freshen up your papercrafting collection without spending money on expensive bundles.

Stampin' Up! has some gorgeous designer paper! I love the colors and images in the Flowering Fields paper, but I'm still thinking about the coordinating bundle. I paired the paper with my very favorite Sale-a-Bration stamp set -- Special Moments. You can choose this stamp set for FREE with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration. It's my top choice because it's so versatile and can be used for many occasions!

Sale-a-Bration Favorite: Stampin' Up! Driving By Diagonal Easel Card + Video

Have you been enjoying my Project Playback series on YouTube? This new weekly video series highlights some of my favorite projects shared in the past. This week's episode looks back to the Diagonal Easel Card. See More Samples. 

I remade this fun fold card using some Sale-a-bration favorites -- the Driving By stamp set and Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Paper. I love the bright colors and fun image on this card and plan to send it to a friend to say "hello"!
Sale-a-Bration Favorite: Stampin' Up! Driving By Diagonal Easel Card + Video ~ www.juliedavison.com #stampinup

There's not a lot of room to write inside since half of the inside panel is visible when the card is displayed, so I added a diagonal piece of Basic White cardstock and the other half of the designer paper to the inside.

December 2021 Paper Pumpkin: 9 Lots of Pun Alternative Projects + VIDEO


I love getting Paper Pumpkin project kits in my mailbox each month! Even though Paper Pumpkin projects are professionally designed and ready to complete, I always love the challenge of using the kit pieces in different ways to create alternative projects. I love how many pieces there was in the December 2021 Lots of Pun kit. Here are the cards that I created using just the kit plus some extra cardstock for card bases.

Stampin' Up! Nuts & Bolts Valentine Card + January 2022 Great, Big Card Swap Showcase

I love swapping cards with other demonstrators! I have a group of friends who I swap with whenever there is a new catalog. I love getting getting my swap cards back to see the surprise of what my friends have created! I created this valentine card using the Stampin' Up! Nuts & Bolts stamp set from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. See more cards using this layout + Card Measurements.

Have you ever participated in a swap? I'd love for you to participate in the Great, Big Card Swap! The concept is simple: Send a card! See them all! Get one back! Check out all the details below, but first -- here's a look at the cards we shared for Part 1 of the January 2022 Great, Big Card Swap. The theme for January is "love"! We're sharing cards for Valentine's Day, weddings, anniversaries, and "I love you". 
Ready to jump in and participate in the next Great, Big Card Swap?

How does it work? "Send a card! See them all! Get one back!"

The GREAT, BIG Card Swap ~ www.juliedavison.com
It's sounds simple because it is! You create a regular full-size card for the monthly theme. Include a return postage stamp and a sticky note message inside. (I'll provide the return envelopes.) If you're sending ahead for the next month's theme, make sure to write the month on the envelope so I know to hold it for that month.

I will showcase all of the cards in a video so you can see what everyone else created and then I'll send them back! Everyone who sends a card will get one back!

January 2022 Theme: Love
    2nd Video Showcase: Tuesday, January 25, 2022

February 2022 Theme: Flowers
  • Send Full Size Card
  • Write "September Card Swap" on Envelope
  • Include return postage stamp. Envelopes will be provided. (Please do NOT include custom envelopes with your card.)
  • Don't write inside! Include a sticky note or loose paper to say hello.

Send Cards to:
Julie Davison
PO Box 6164
Champaign, IL 61826

Frequently Asked Questions:
  • Who can participate in this swap? EVERYONE! This swap is open to all stampers, including Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
  • Can I send more than one card? Yes! Each card should be different and you should include a return stamp for each card.
  • Can I use retired or non-Stampin' Up! products? Yes! I want EVERYONE to participate regardless of their paper-crafting collection! I will sort cards before swapping so that stampers who do use current Stampin' Up! product will get cards with current Stampin' Up! product in return.
  • Can I sign the back of my card? Yes! Please leave the inside blank so the person who receives your card can send it on and bless someone else. But feel free to include your usual maker marking on the back.
  • What happens if my card doesn't arrive in time? Postal transit times are unpredictable. If your card arrives late, don't worry! I will showcase it in another weekly video and make sure that you get a return swap! 
I would love for you to include a note inside the card -- a little about yourself or just a happy greeting to the person who gets your card. Please note, I will remove any solicitations (business cards, business links, etc.) 

Attention International Stampers! I would love for you to participate in this swap! Use this Paypal link to pay $5 USD for 3 return postage stamps. (I'll hold them with your name on them to use for future swaps.) I'm worried about transit times, so be sure to mail early or work ahead one month! Mark your envelope with the month/theme you intend to submit the swap.
 

Privacy Statement: During the showcase video (posted on YouTube and Facebook), I will provide the first and last name of the card maker. If you prefer to be anonymous or only mentioned by first name, please let me know in a written note inside your card. Although I am entering mailing addresses in a spreadsheet, it is for the sole purpose of generating return address labels. Your information will not be shared or sold to a third party, including another swapper. I will never personally use your information for any other reason besides sending return cards for The Great, Big Card Swap.


The Great, Big Card Swap is organized by Julie Davison, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2002.
