Merry Monday!! with a Video!

Happy Monday everyone!  Last week the time just slipped away from me and I didn’t get to film the Merry Monday video ahead of time.  But I WAS able to film it today!  It’s in the process of saving to my computer then I will have to upload it to YouTube.  My hope is that it will be there (and here) within a few hours.  
Please come back to see how I made the card below!  
**edited** It’s now 8:43 pm Central Time.  The video had posted but, it was the incorrect video (the non-edited one).  It is about half way finished downloading to YouTube and then it will be published.  I’m sorry for the delay (remember, I am NEW at this).  🙂
**Edited.  It’s now 10:40pm and the video is now LIVE.  Whew, what a day I’ve had.  But, it the end I did it.  Now I’m off to bed.  🙂  Thanks for being patient with me!  Check below for your Merry Monday video!

Today’s Merry Monday card was inspired by a card swap that I received this past weekend at a Stampin’ Up! event called “Unite & Excite”.  I love ANY event that involves Stampin’ Up!!  You really can not go wrong.  If you LOVE stamping you may consider becoming a demonstrator too and I would love for you to join my team of Happily Ever Stampers!  Contact me or 314-803-9197 with any questions you have because I would love to tell you about the benefits.  I am open and honest when discussing what being a demonstrator is all about.  You can see more information HERE.

Here is a quick card that you easily create for your own Holiday cards this year!


  1. Cut Crumb Cake card stock to 4.25″ x 11″; score at 5.5″
  2. Cut your designer paper to 3.5″ x 4″ and adhere to card base
  3. Tie ribbon in a knot around the card covering the top of the designer paper
  4. Stamp image onto Very Vanilla card stock with Jet Black Staz-On
  5. Die-cut image with the Banners Framelits
  6. Color image with Blendabilities (or markers)
  7. Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals
  8. Stamp the “Wishing You Holiday Cheer…..” in the inside of the card with Staz-On.  I colored my olive green with a Blendabilities marker.

Step it up: Add a bit more coloring and then take it to yet another level when you add GLITTER!!

Color Me Christmas: Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog

Hi there!  I hope that you are not feeling the heat as much as I am!  It’s been REALLY hot the last week here in St. Louis.  I guess the summer is finally catching up with us here at the end.  My kids were kept inside both yesterday and today for recess because of excessive heat. 🙁  It has taken a bit of a tole on me also…it makes me tired and kind of s-l-o-w…lol.  Tell me that I am not alone here??  🙂

So, today I decided to create a Christmas card.  Right?!  Yes.  It cooled me down for a bit then I had to go walk to the bus stop and was hit by that wonderful steam as I walked out the door!  YUCK.

I hope you enjoy today’s simple but festive card.  I do need to get a new sentiment set to go with this stamp set…it’s on my list so, today we’ll call it a notecard.  k?!

Isn’t this little guy cute?  I love this set.  You will create cute cards every time.  I love cute, simple, and quick when it comes to making cards!

You can order this set and any other products on your list on my Stampin’ Up! website:  HERE

Stay COOL and have a great day!
