The Home Sweet Home Thinlits make a very cute little house with decorations for a spooky house, a dog house, or a Christmas gingerbread house. You can use just the front of the house from the set, but I wanted a 3-D house to fold flat and fit in an envelope. I saw one “Crafted by Helen.” Here’s my version.

I can almost smell the crisp fresh smell of fall leaves. I want to slip on a snugly sweater and the season. The Colorful Seasons Bundle has been very popular and there are great reasons for that. There are wonderful snowflakes, summer beach chairs, and spring flowers. You can make this card with these products from Stampin’ Up!

Give the gift of an orchid. The salted background provides a lovely texture on the glossy card stock. You can multiple cards without having to carefully position the stamps and Framelits each time. I’ll show you how.

I love cards that look difficult but really are not. This “Z-Fold” card is just a standard half sheet of card stock folded in half and then one side is folded a second time. The Old Olive and Whisper White strips are folded the exact same way, but reversed when you add it to the card base. The result is impressive!

The stamp set can be found inside the back cover of the 2017-2018 annual catalog. That spot is reserved for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) stamp set. Each year, Stampin’ Up! offers a special stamp set. You help RMHC when you buy this set because Stampin’ Up! will donate $3 (US) for each set sold. Stampin’ Up! and demonstrators also give time, money (over $1.5 million), and cards to this organization that provides a place for families to be surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatments far from home.

Don’t buy the Everyday Jars Framelits just for this card. It’s not difficult to “fussy cut” the jar and the lid. But the Framelits also coordinate with the Jar of Love stamp set. I think you may want to buy all three, so I’m including Jar of Love in the links even though it wasn’t used in this card.
