Freshly Brewed Projects – Ways With Shapes

I am joining my friends from Australia again today as we play with our shaped dies….. squares, circles, hearts, stars, etc.  I can’t wait to see what everyone does with their shapes.

I’ve been wanting to make a slimline card, so I decided to use my squares to make a shaker card.  Slimline cards are very popular right now.  If you haven’t tried one yet, they’re really fun.  Simply cut your card base to 8 1/2 x 7, and fold it to 8 1/2 x 3 1/2.  Then, just decorate however you choose!

I am totally in love with the Gilded Autumn Suite on page 45 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  I’ve used it in several projects lately, including a fun fold and a Stampin’ Surprise card with my friends and customers.

I just love the little leaves and acorn stamps.  What could be better?  How about punches to cut them all out?!!  I used the Sequins for Everything on Page 66 to fill my little shaker squares.  This set of sequins has four different color groups for any occasion!

Of course a card is never finished until you’ve stamped and decorated the inside.  I stamped the little leaves, and added a couple of punched acorns to finish my card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.  If so, I’d love for you to comment below.

And, be sure to visit the blogs below to see what my friends have been up to with their shape dies!

New In-Color Just Jade Punch Flower

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I am always trying to “Better My Best”, which means watching videos, reading about new ideas, and training to learn how to provide better service to both customers and team members.

I recently took an online Leadership Training with Ronda Wade.  This was one of our Make ‘n Takes, and I loved it so much that I just had to let my club members make it.

It’s super cute in ANY of the new in-colors and flower punches, and oh so quick and easy!  Thank you, Ronda Wade, for an easy class project!
