I recently did a one on one card swap here on my blog and have some of these cards to show you.  This first card is a very nice fun fold card.  Toni sent this to me just to be sweet.  I love it Toni, thanks so much!

Here’s Linda L’s cute swap card.

Next time I do a card swap, I hope you’ll consider participating.  It’s pretty easy when you only have to make one card.

Stampin Up cards made with Cherry on Top DSP designed by Ruth Sollberger.

Ruth cased one of my 3×3 card sets and sent me this adorable picture quite awhile ago. I love your cards Ruth!

I love to CASE cards, and love it when others CASE my cards.  If you ever choose to CASE one of my cards, please send me a picture so I can show it on my blog.  I also love receiving cards in the mail.  If you send me a card, I’ll put it on a future Friends of Stamping Mom Friday feature.

I bet you love to receive cards too.  One of my new year’s resolutions is to actually send the cards I make.  I give a lot of cards away as gift sets, but don’t send as many as I should.

To start the new year off right, I sent about ten cards this morning.  I also sent out some of the new catalogs.  If you’d like me to be your Stampin’ Up demo, please email me and I’ll send you the new catalogs.  My email is Beth@StampingMom.com  If you work with another demo, please check with them for your catalogs.

Saturday is the last day to reserve your Stamparatus.  You may think you can wait until June, but when you see it, I believe you’ll want it sooner.  Reserve yours here

Jan 2 is the last day to order from the Holiday catalog.  Many item are on sale.  Order online here.

I am doing shares from the Occasions catalog and plan to post the details on Jan. 1.  I will begin to order the supplies on Jan. 3 and get everything out to you quickly.

Please subscribe to my blog, follow me on Pinterest here or Facebook here.

I’d love it if you would come to our stamp camp in West Des Moines, IA on Saturday Jan. 27. Details below.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂

The whole McCullough clan (24 people) are descending on West Des Moines tomorrow and will be here until Sunday.  The presents are wrapped, the house is decorated, the menu is planned and the groceries are purchased.  I do have some last minute cleaning and a little more food prep to do tomorrow.  I wonder how much sleep we’ll get with 14 teenagers in the house for two nights?!  The other eight adults will stay in a hotel while Steve and I have a slumber party with all the kids.  Hopefully they’ll want to do some stamping and play some cards!

 

 

Pals August Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up sympathy card made with the Fluttering embossing folder designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

I made this card to use as a Sympathy card for my kid’s favorite swim coach, who recently lost her Mom.  I used 3-3/4″ x 1″ strips of each of the new In Colors and adhered them to a piece of 5″ x 3-3/4″ white card stock.  I ran that through the Big Shot with the Fluttering embossing folder.  With Stampin’ Dimensionals, the butterfly layer is attached to a Flirty Flamingo 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card.  The Isaiah verse is from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  Everything looks better when it’s cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits.  If you own a Big Shot you will want to get them!  The butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits.

Stampin Up birthday card made with the Fluttering embossing folder designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Here’s a birthday version of the card.  The little butterflies are cut from the Build A Bike Framelits.

Stampin Up Anniversary card made with the Ruffled embossing folder designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

Here’s a similar card flipped the other way.  The Happy Anniversary is from a retired set, All-Year Cheer III from back in 2002. (I’m dating myself.)  The colors are Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Blackberry Bliss.( All are current except Blackerry Bliss.)

The Big Shot is a wonderful tool that allows you to make awesome “cuts” on your cards.
