Last night I did a Facebook Live video with the #simplestamping theme. (check out the replay on Facebook)
About an hour prior to the live, I put out this supply list for anyone who wanted to stamp with me.
Here is the first card featuring In The Pines stamp set with the greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas:
Sometimes I truly believe, simple is better. I LOVE how this card turned out....so simple and easy.
Next up, was the Snow Wonder Bundle....and I chose to let the Balmy Blue Glimmer paper do all the hard work for me.....this stuff is GORGEOUS. Here is the card:
We had a lot of fun last night.
My next Facebook Live is on Saturday, October 31st at 11 am central time.
We will be making:
- a simple card for the beginner crafter
- a stepped-up card for the casual crafter
- a detailed card for the avid crafter

For the past couple of days, I did a survey via email and Facebook; and asked people what products they would like to see featured in my Wednesday night Facebook Live card video.
I had 74 people ask for the Beautiful Autumn stamp set.....so.....that was my featured product last night.
We made two cards last night....a simple card and a bridge fold card.
Here are the cards:
This first simple card is a CASE direct from page 44 of the catalog. During the live I encouraged everyone to look at their catalog as an idea book....pick a card you like something about.....and then make it your own!
And this is our stepped up bridge fold. Not exactly what I wanted to do but not having any Very Vanilla card stock kyboshed my plan.
Check out the close up of these leaves:
And finally my fussy cut pumpkins....direct from the dsp:
If you missed the live you can catch the replay on Facebook.

Monday, October 19, 2020.....Shel's Mystery Case #1- All card submissions....you are gonna LOVE these !
Back on October 7th I posted this fun new challenge:
Here is how Shel's Mystery CASE works:
On Friday....I will share Mystery Clues for the following week's challenge. It will include basic directions for what you will need to have on hand to make an easy CASE of the project that I intend to share.
Over The Weekend...you can start thinking about what items you are going to use- cardstocks, DSP, stamps inks, and embellishments. Put all these items together in a small basket ready for Monday.
On Monday....I share a blog post with the project that follows the Mystery Clues given on Friday. I share the clues again, along with my project. Many times an accompanying video.
During the Week....Now it is your turn to craft...You create with your materials following the Mystery Clues or by CASE-ing my card from Monday!
C.A.S.E - Copy and Selectively Edit
You can think of the clues as a starting point in your creative process and make the card your own! There are no hard-set rules here....this is for fun! It is your card....make it your way!
Email me a photo of your completed card, by doing so you are giving me permission to share your card on my blog to inspire others. I will add your name as the creator of the project.
On Friday....I will share all the cards from the week!
Then on Friday Oct 9th I posted these clues:
Then last Monday Oct 12th, I shared my cards and video:
