Creating a Backgammon Board with Game On from Stampin' Up! for #MyStampingFriends

 Hey there My Stamping Friends,  

I originally got the Game On stamp set from Stampin' Up! to make some fun invitations for a Bunko game and some table decorations for my husbands poker game but Covid-19 is still around and we won't be doing either of those for a while.  Well, you know I like thinking outside of the box, and finding 'other' ways to use a stamp set so I came up with this Backgammon game (and a few other ideas that I'll post separately).  

Check out my video right here, on how to create this card.

If you want to make it right along with me, you can get the supplies on my website by clicking here and you can have the supplies right in front of you and make the project right along with me while you watch the video.

Create a Pilgrim with the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set from Stampin' Up! for #MyStampingFriends

Hey there My Stamping Friends,   I've got something so exciting to share with you.  You all know how I like to stretch my stamp sets and try and get some unexpected things from them and this post is all about that!  I got the amazing Gnome for the Holidays stamp set from Stampin' Up! which has a few Christmas holiday themed Gnomes and some holiday sentiments.  Well, I've had it for a little while and was wondering what else I could do with it when I realized that I didn't have any cute Thanksgiving stamps this year yet so I had to give this a try. Enjoy my Pilgrim card!

Partial Panel Card using Gnome For The Holidays stamp set and Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up! for #MyStampingFriends

Hi there My Stamping Friends, 

I just recently saw my friend Jennifer Helm show this layout and I'd never seen it before. That's always so exciting for me as I love to find a new-to-me fold or technique. I saw this and knew I had to make and share a Christmas card. I made a little video that you can see here.

I used the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set and the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog to create the card.  


Mossy Meadow Base: 5-1/4 x 5-1/2, scored at 1 inch on the 5-1/4 side , making the base 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 with a 1 inch flap at the top. You'll also need a 4 inch square

Whisper White (or Very Vanilla if that coordinates with your Designer Series Paper): card insert 4 x 5-1/4 and one piece 3 x 3-3/4

Designer Series Paper: 2 pieces that are 4 x 1. 


13 inches to wrap around the card and enough to ties a bow.


Attach DSP to Whisper White card insert. Stamp sentiment centered on insert and attach to card base.

Stamp the Gnomes on the Whisper White card front in Memento Ink & color with the Stampin' Blends and then attach to the bottom of the 4 inch square Mossy Meadow cardstock.

Attach the 4 in square Mossy Meadow to the inside center of the 1 inch strip of the base. 

Attach ribbon around the 1 inch flap and then create a bow and attach it in place. 

At the end of this post you will see a list of all the supplies I used.  If you want to purchase any of these products, just click on the product photos and you'll be taken to my shop or you can visit it directly at

How to do the Scrappy Strip Technique using the Zany Zebras stamp set from Stampin' Up! for #MyStampingFriends

Hey there My Stamping Friends,  When I first saw the Zany Zebra stamp set from Stampin' Up! I immediately saw this card in my mind. Do you recognize the Zebra? Do you see what I was going for here?   Yup, It Yipes Stripes (it rhymes), the zebra from the Fruit Stripe Gum that we used to get as a treat when I was young.

This brought me right back to my childhood and the 30 seconds of flavor I got from each piece of this gum. I had a blast making the project and I love sharing it with you.
