STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Love that little house?  It’s part of the Stampin’ Up! “You Brighten My Day” stamp set, FREE with a $50 product order during Sale-A-Bration.  Ends March 31.

  • Quick and easy.  The Stampin’ Up! What’s Up Punch is perfectly sized to crop the house.
  • The Coastal Cabana hearts were cropped using the Stampin’ Up! Confetti Hearts Border Punch.  A dot of Liquid Multi-Purpose Glue placed with a Paper-Piercing Tool keeps them in place.

  • I went a bit “outside the lines” by placing the banner beyond the 3.5″ width of this card.  To compensate for the difference when creating a custom sized envelope, I used the measurements on my Envelope Punch Board for a 6.5″ x 4″ card.

  • Add an envelope liner in a snap with almost no waste using the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board.  Watch my Stampin’ Pretty video to learn how.
  • Hover and Pin it! Here’s a photo showing key products for today’s card that you can save or pin to Pinterest. See ALL my product photos in one spot on my How to Make Simple Cards board on Pinterest.

  35. Mary, I love the simplicity of your business and tutorials. You have proven that you don’t need flash to be extraordinary. Question: how do you film your videos and what software do you use to edit them and add that lovely acoustical guitar theme? You never fail to encourage us creative folks to stretch our brain matter! Thank you for sharing.

  36. Living in Maryland buried in snow and ice. I love the snow and since we can’t go anywhere it gives me so much time to stamp!

  37. Im so grateful for the envelope punch board. It ensures that I can make so many sizes of cards because the custom envelopes are a snap! Thanks for your kind comments, all!

    Reply
  38. I like that you can go “outside the box” somewhat, with a tall and skinny card, and still be able to create an envelope to fit, with the Envelope Punch Board. Aren’t Stampin’ Up products wonderful?!
