Simple Saturday Snowman and New Video!

Stampin up cute christmas petal card punch
Hang on to your expired Stampin' Up! Catalogs!  They are packed full of ideas and always a wonderful source of inspiration.  The layout for today's card evolved from a card featured in the Stampin' Up! 2008 Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog (p. 18, to be exact).  Thank goodness for sticky notes to identify my old favorites!

Today's 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial shows you how quick and easy it is to create a wide scallop border using the Stampin' Up! Fancy Flower Punch. 


  • Stampin up petal card punch envelope The Petal Card Extra Large Double Punch cuts and scores the mini envelope.  Tr?s Cool.  It's 1" x 1" when folded.  So sweet with a little note tucked inside.
  • A touch of paper piecing gives new life to my snowman's scarf and hat.  Cute Christmas is a versatile and charming stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.
  • Black Flourish Designer Jewels stand in as little buttons and add just a touch of glamour to the heart on the envelope. 

STAMPIN' UP! CLEARANCE RACK BLITZ!  Drastically reduced discontinued merchandise.  Save up to 80% on ribbon, brads, designer series paper, buttons and more.

  4. I love the positive feedback on the video. However, I want to confess that the idea for the Fancy Flower was from a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator event, not my brain. I can’t take credit for “clever” today 🙂
