Consider using a non-holiday stamp set and dies for your Christmas cards! For today’s card I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Flourishing Dies along with sentiments from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set. The quiet earth tones on this card along with the texture provided by the Fern 3D Embossing Folder and the die cut greenery make for a quiet, subtle and beautiful card. Your nature loving friends or family would love to receive this card for Christmas!
I started by embossing a panel of Mossy Meadow using the Fern 3D Embossing Folder. This embossing folder provides so much texture! A strip of the beautiful gold Shimmer Ribbon was then adhered across the top of the embossed panel and secured to the back using Tear & Tape. Several images from the Forever Fern Stamp Set were stamped then die cut and arranged on the card front. The greenery cut from the Evening Evergreen cardstock was highlighted using white craft ink.
To keep with the subdued color palette on this card the sentiment was stamped in Real Red ink onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Banner ends were hand cut on each side of the sentiment and the label was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A bow was tied from the gold Simmer Ribbon and adhered at the top of the card.
A second sentiment was added to the inside of the card and a leaf image was second-generation stamped in Mossy Meadow over top of the sentiment. The same leaf image adorns the front of the envelope as well as the envelope flap.
Quick and easy and oh so pretty! You can view download and print the pdf tutorial for this card by clicking on the image below.

Today is the Last Day to Earn Double Honey Drop Points!
Today is the last day to earn double Honey Drop Points with me!
You might be asking – what are Honey Drop points?
Qualifying customers can earn Honey Drop points from me as part of my Honeybee Rewards Program. Once you earn 16 Honey Drops you can earn products valued up to $40 from any current catalog from me. Here is how the double points work:
- Place an order in my online store between August 22 and August 31 to earn double Honey Drops.
- If you place an order of $25 (before shipping and any applicable tax) you will receive 2 Honey Drop points (instead of just one), for a $50 order you’ll earn 4 points, for a $75 order you’ll earn 6 points, and so on. Normally you would earn only 1 point for every $25 spent.
- Collect sixteen (16) Honey Drops and you can earn any product or products with a value up to $40 from any current catalog and the item will be mailed directly to you! You’ll receive free shipping, too!
- Each of your online orders must be for $25 or more for you to be eligible to earn double Honey Drop points (before Shipping and any applicable tax).
- And, it’s still Sale-A-Bration time so if you place at least a $50 order from me you will earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!
- Don’t forget to use my current host code, AHPKF7WD, when placing orders. This qualifies you to receive a free thank you gift from me (if your order is over $150 don’t use the host code. You are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards but you’ll still get the free gift from me).

The event will feature card making presentations live on the event Facebook page as well as some fun giveaways!
Stampin’ Up! will also be hosting an event online (see the details below) and we’re scheduling our event so that it runs before and after the Stampin’ Up! event! Most of us will be using one of the three bundles from the Stampin’ Up! event for our projects so you will come away from the day with tons of ideas for those three bundles!
All are welcome to join us for this fun-filled day! We’ll be setting up a Facebook page to host the event and will be sharing the link to the page in late September. Keep an eye out on my blog for more details!

Product Ordering Details:
World Card Making Day is all about making beautiful, heartfelt cards. During the event, Stampin’ Up! will walk you through several projects, and you can create the cards along with the presenters. You’ll end up with new project ideas and some stunning new cards!
To make the most of this experience, you can order the Cottage Rose Bundle from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog, the Cottage Wreaths Bundle from the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog, or the Warm Welcome Bundle (which you can get EARLY from the January–June 2023 Mini Catalog beginning September 1)! The bundles aren’t required to attend the event, but if you’d like to make the projects presented, you’ll want to get the bundles!
As an added bonus, when you order ANY of the three bundles used for the event, you’ll get a FREE gift of Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels! (Note that even if you order all three bundles, you’ll only receive one Iridescent Pearls gift.)
Check out the Product Flyer below for the bundle ordering information (click on DOWNLOAD). You can still attend this event without ordering the bundles, but it’ll be a lot more fun to craft together if you have one or more of the bundles!
Be sure to order early to get your products in time for the World Card Making Day Creative Event. The Cottage Rose and Cottage Wreaths bundle are both available now AND you’ll get the free Iridescent Pearls if you order them any time between now and October 1st! And the Warm Welcome bundle will be available to order from September 1 – October 1 and you’ll get the free pack of pearls if you order that bundle during that timeframe!
I’m really excited for these events – The Stampin’ Up World Card Making Day event and our Inkin’ Krew event! I hope you’ll be able to join in on the fun! Don’t forget to invite your crafting friends and family, too! If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. See you soon!
