Stampin' Up! Color & Contour Thank You Card in the Lovely Pale Papaya

Express your artistic talents with the Stampin' Up! Color & Contour Stamp Set and Scalloped Contours Dies. The stamps are designed so the filler stamp doesn't completely color in the outline stamp, creating a unique look every time. Fill the outline image with ink at full strenght or, for a softer look, stamp off first. This is a bundle with many options for expressing your creativity.

Let's Connect, Share & Learn Together

Virtual Card Classes via Zoom

I offer live card classes open to everyone globally. If you're in the US, there are options for class kits to go, with prepared, precut project materials, PDF tutorials, live class via Zoom, with an additional $15 in Stampin' Up! products at no additional chage -- all with free shipping.

Crafting In The Stamping Nook Facebook Group

As a creative coach, I am here to help you with your projects -- I do not have to be your demonstrator for me to help! We are a community of crafters learning from each other! Members are encouraged to share crafty and DIY projects of all types (and of any brand), share tips, and of course meet others with the same crafting passion. I often share my projects, tutorials, etc., and of course, incorporate fun activities as well (prizes included)! I hope you join & participate so I can learn from you too! Everyone is welcome -- demonstrators included!

Meetup Group

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!


I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
