Design a Quick & Simple Penciled Pear Card

Design a Quick & Simple card with the Penciled Pear Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty (1)

I adore the simplicity of the pear image in the Stampin’ Up! Penciled Pear stamp set. The images in the stamp set have the perfect amount of artful shading “built in.” It looks so chic stamped with Pecan Pie ink on Old Olive card stock.

WHAT I LOVE! The Stampin’ Up! Countryside Corners die collection offers six different sizes of octagons (plus a mini flag die). They are proportioned to “nest” when you layer and formed the focal point for my pretty pear.

Create a Bright & Dynamic Color Block Card!

Create this Enjoy Today card with the Labeled with Love Punch Bundle Item 163571 by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty (3)

I combined 1/2” x 2 7/8” strips of all 10 of the Stampin’ Up! Brights Color Collection to create a dynamic color block element on today’s card. Have you noticed the Stampin’ Up! card sketches on page 22 in the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog. You can find versions of the sketches throughout the catalog, too. Today’s card was inspired by this one.

WHAT I LOVE! One, two, punch! That’s a perfect way to describe how the Labeled with Love punch and stamp set (border and sentiment images) work together for this darling “enjoy today” sentiment. Purchase the Labeled with Love punch (or choose the option to get 3 dies) and stamp set as a bundle and save 10%. You can use the punch in so, so many additional ways!

Your Creativity Will Bloom with Mediterranean Blooms DSP!

Create this Just a Note Card with the Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

The Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP) is colorful, classic and captivating.  It’s one of My Favorite Things in the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog.  One side focuses on citrus patterns (very vintage) and the opposite side is a rich mix of blue “tile” patterns.

Does it matter where you trim a pattern?  YES!  I centered the large pattern so that the “just a note” sentiment would be centered.  Centering the pattern is easier than you think.  Mark the center on the opposite side of the DSP (or do a little notch with a scissor and measure equal distances from center where you want to trim.
