Christmas Wreath

One more Sparkle of the Season card – with a Christmas theme.  Remember to apply an Adhesive Sheets to the cardstocks, die-cut, create an “assembly line” and assemble at your leisure.  The Painted Christmas DSP in the background was cut to 4 x 5.25″, then cut at the 2-inch mark on the long side and flip to reveal the backside pattern.  The sentiment is embossed on Real Red cardstock.  Substitute your favorite holiday greeting.  Just trying to help you plan ahead for the busy holiday season!  See more like this at



Straight Up. You are the Best!

How about a masculine card?  My friend Leila Pals created this card.  It made me laugh because it is a magic card – kind of like how whiskey “magically” disappears at a party!  LOL!  This is an easy and fun card to make.  Visit Pinterest, there are tons of cards and instructions to be found.  The Whiskey Business set is available in the May 2021 – April 2022 Annual Catalog.  See more like this at


Brightly Gleaming!

When browsing the catalog, we sometimes get so focused on the stamp sets that we may overlook the matching Designer Series Papers.  One of my favorites is Brightly Gleaming DSP.  The piece I chose for this card has a Night of Navy background with copper foil accents – beautifully highlighted with the Joy Dies.  This is a simple, gorgeous card that anyone would love to receive!  Don’t overlook the other DSPs that are retiring including Gilded Autumn, Toile Tidings, Snowflake Splendor and Feels Like Frost (shown below) among others.  See more like this at

Forever Fern Bundle and the inside scoop!

I tend to forget about the inside of a stamped card, do you?  It can be a missed opportunity to make a card that much more special.  These three ladies participated in a recent demonstrator swap.  They embellished the inside of their cards using folders and ribbons.  I’m sharing their ideas to show how awesome and clever they are!  Of course everything coordinates since that is what Stampin’ Up! does so expertly.  See more like this at

Call in the Army & the Air Force

My final salute to the military is represented in these two cards.  Both cards could honor the memory of a lost soldier while the star card could also be used to honor a member of the Coast Guard (another important branch of our Armed Forces).  For more military-themed cards, visit Stamp with Gloria on Facebook and view the 05-24-2020 Facebook Live Memorial Day video.  I tried to ‘think outside the box’ using our Stampin’ Up! products in a different way.  See more like this at
