We are seriously going to hear about wind chills for the next two days. This is way to early for this! So I have a dual purpose for this cute card! First, it is cold and time to break out the sweaters in Iowa and second, this is our school colors and time for post season tournaments. My niece is on the volleyball team and they are playing Monday night so I thought this was a perfect combination and dual purpose and I just wanted to play with the fun set perhaps! Isn’t the sweater just the cutest! This card features some of my favorite products these days. The Cottage Gingham DSP and of course my Stitched Stylish Shapes Die Cuts! I can’t seem to make a card without them these days! I just love these die cuts and the detail they feature, and the DSP in the Cottage Gingham pack is so much fun! If you have been clothes shopping lately you will see plaid everywhere! So of course you want your cards to be in style too, right? Not to mention this 12×12 DSP is perfect for scrapbooking too! It will make amazing borders or background papers! I love our stampin up DSP! Double sided and just perfect weight to work with paired with our card stock and you have amazing cards and all our products are made to coordinate beautifully! I love Stampin Up products and love to create with them. This cold weather will drive me to my paper cave and I won’t want to leave anytime soon!

Fussy Cut the sweater and pennants then color in with the Stampin Blends.
Basic Grey Cardstock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″ with your paper trimmer.
Real Red cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ and Grey Cottage DSP cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″. Adhere and layer all 3 as shown. Next Die cut a vellum Stitched Stylish Circle. Adhere that with Stampin Seal on the center of your card. Be sure to place where the sweater will cover. Stamp the cardigan and pennants in Memento Basic Black and color in with the Stampin Blends. Fussy cut out all three with your Paper Snips. Die cut a label from the Stitched Stylish Shapes with a scrap piece of Basic White. Put Dimensionals on the back of the sweater and the pennants. Place them on the vellum circle and then add the Stamped Stitched Label with Dimensionals. Using your Take Your Pick Tool place the Black Matte Dots on the card front. Super Simple card to create!

Stampin Up is a big part of our family! I love the products and have been stamping and paper crafting for almost 30 years! I love what I do and I love being a Stampin Up demonstrator. I make and send cards, love to scrapbook and I love to create fun treats and gifts! I hate to buy cards and we don’t in our house! We make them! Even my kids can make great cards and always ask mom when cards are needed! During October there is an amazing deal in Stampin Up where you too can join the Paper Wishes Team and Stampin Up for the regular price of $99. But the amazing part is you get $155 in products of your choice with FREE shipping, business supplies if you want to use them and a FREE Paper Pumpkin kit! This is really a great deal and perfect timing with the holiday cards, gift tags, treats and crafting coming! The best part for me is products when I want to order them, the ability to get discounts on all my purchases and the ability to share my passion with all of you! You can do what you want with your kit but I hope you create with it! You can choose to remain active and place small quarterly orders to remain active or larger if you wish! I would love to share this with all of you! I love my team and I love seeing it grow! We offer free training if you want, fun it you love to have fun and tons of inspiration and help! You can share with others or you can keep it to yourself the choice is yours! PS-I love to spoil my demonstrators with tons of fun Happy Mail too! Another fun perk! Seriously think on this one and click join my team! You won’t regret it but if you do no questions asked just keep the kit and have fun with it! Remember it was stuff you picked out you wanted anyway!

Another fun perk of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is getting to order new products before they are released and that is one of my favorite parts! Look at the new and stunning Fabulous Florets! Mine just arrived and I can not wait to play and create with this fun suite of products! This is a fun one! As you can see I have so many reasons why I love Stampin Up and I know you will find your own reasons if you join the fun! It can be a business, a hobby and whatever you wish it to be! Share it with friends or keep it for yourself! If you spend $20 a week or more when buying cardstock, adhesives, Designer Series Paper or embellishments in a craft store, you could be supporting yourself! It is so easy and PS that is retail not what you pay! Remember you get to be your own discount shopper!
