About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

RAK Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the RAK Blog Hop! I am Sarah Fleming, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the USA (in central Texas). This is a blog hop to show the cards that we send and receive as participants in the Random Act of Kindness Card Group. This group is a wonderful, giving group that sends cards to each other using current Stampin’ Up! products. We’re from all over the world, and half the fun is seeing how far each card travels to its destination.

Today I’m sharing the cards I’ve received in late September and October. I am sending out my October RAK cards next week, so I don’t have any of those to show yet. I’m a little behind this month.

Stampin' Up! Random Act of Kindness Card Group

How adorable is this card from Michelle Haney?? She has used the Envelope Punch Board to make the notches around the ears. The Stitched Shapes framelits and Layering Oval framelits make up the chest, eyes, and wings. The wings are debossed with the Petal Burst folder. What a great idea! I don’t have that embossing folder, but I’m starting to reconsider it. The Jack-o-lantern comes from the Pick a Pumpkin bundle. And there’s that classic “happy halloween” stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes (Teeny Tiny Sentiments if you’re overseas). Thank you, Michelle!

This GORGEOUS sympathy card arrived from the wonderful Angie McKenzie. The Colorful Seasons stamp set is so versatile and can be used for almost any purpose. Even sympathy. And that Jute Twine is just perfect. What a beautiful card. Thank you, Angie.

I hope these cards have inspired you in some way. We’d love for you to join the Random Act of Kindness Card Group! It’s such a fun group! Make sure to go through the whole blog hop and be inspired by the other cards being sent and received this month. Just start at Jessie and go to the end.

Feathery Friends

Stampin' Up! Wood Textures paper, Feathery Friends host stamp set, Birthday Blooms - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! Today’s card is pretty simple as far as layers and embellishments go, but I love how it turned out. I used the Wood Textures designer series paper (included in the October DSP sale!) and decided to heat emboss these cute little flowers from the Feathery Friends host stamp set directly on the paper. You can’t buy this stamp set — you can only earn it and buy it with Stampin’ Rewards with an order over $150 or a party that goes over $150. Isn’t it cute?

The card base is Emerald Envy, which is terribly underappreciated. After I mounted the embossed background on the card base, I added a piece of the Pool Party 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon and zigzagged it back and forth until I liked how it looked. I Glue Dotted that down, then added the sentiment. The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White in… well, honestly I’m not sure. I thought I used Calypso Coral, but in the pictures it looks like Tangerine Tango. Either one would look great, though! The sentiment is from the Birthday Blooms stamp set, and the flowers are from the same Feathery Friends set. The circle is cut out with the Stitched Shapes framelits. I popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals, being careful to only place the Dimensionals above and below where the ribbon was.

All of the items I used in my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store (linked supply list is at the end of this post). Make sure to use the October Host Code (below), and I’ll send you extra goodies!

Everything Merry

Stampin' Up! Ready For Christmas, Merry Little Christmas paper, Layering Circles framelits, Lots of Labels framelits - handmade Christmas holiday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Today I have a very simple card for you. The card base is Berry Burst. I added a piece of Merry Little Christmas paper, after sponging some Lemon-Lime Twist ink onto the paper. That’s my favorite thing about this paper. Each sheet has a side with Old Olive and a side that is only black and white. And you can color the black and white side however you like.

I stamped the sentiment from the Ready for Christmas stamp set in Berry Burst ink. I LOVE the LL Twist / Berry Burst combo for Christmas this year! I cut out the sentiment and the LL Twist piece behind it with with the Layering Circles framelits. I usually use the scalloped circles with the circles from the Stitched Shapes framelits, but I really like using two of the scalloped circles together, too. The Basic Black cardstock is cut out with the Lots of Labels framelits.
