It’s Your Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

While getting ready for my Carols of Christmas class this weekend, I ran across some leftovers from my July 2017 Paper Pumpkin and decided to use them up so here is my alternative to the pre-designed cards in the kit… 

Everything on the card comes in the kit except the Glitter Enamel Dots and I used them to cover up a couple of smudges! With mistakes comes opportunity!!

I also used the oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits to cut out the tulips. The “hooray” gives the card added dimension, and I wanted to make sure I used up all the wooden elements from the kit!

Also … wanted to let you know that today is the last day to cash in on this exciting offer (the best I’ve seen in my 17 years as a demonstrator).

Once you purchase the kit you can check out all the wonderful benefits of being a demonstrator (I can help) and then decide to dabble in the fun or just play with all your new stamping supplies! Your choice!

Thanks for checking in on me today, I’ll be back tomorrow with a more manly alternative from the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit!

Have a wonderful day ~


Simply Sunday: Daisies

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have simply stamped card from our Delightful Daisy bundle that truly highlights the stamp set.

One advantage of working with the Photopolymer stamps is that you can bend or shape them, like I did with my daisy. It gives movement to your card.

To give it dimension, I stamped the blossoms twice so I could cut them out and layer them on top of each other…. a touch of Daffodil Delight in the centers for a pop of color!

The greeting comes from the “Layering Love” stamp set and coordinates nicely with the daisies. Sweet and Simple!

Before I leave you today… I want to invite you to consider joining my team.  There are only a few days left on this amazing offer!

The Daisy is Back!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m so excited to let you know that the Delightful Daisy bundle is back and available to order … I have a stunning card to share with you that we made in my Delightful Daisy class earlier this month. 

Speaking of our Delightful Daisy class…  all the lovely ladies who ordered my special class bundle; Your orders were placed and you will get the $5 Bonus Buy from Stampin’ Up!


I teamed up the Daisy Punch with the awesome new “Wood Textures” Designer Series Paper stack … the Whisper White daisies are striking against the deep wood background.  The touch of yellow from the centers really makes the flowers pop. 

The greeting was created using the “Label Me Pretty” bundle … just stamp -n- punch! We colored the pearls with a black Sharpie™ … I wanted it to look like little nail heads that secure the label to the card.

I love both of these bundles and find them versatile and easy to use! I think the daisies are perfect for sending a little cheerfulness in a card!

Hope you enjoyed today’s card as much as the ladies in my class and I enjoyed making it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today …

Hope your day is full of cheer!

After watching this video, I’ve been inspired to play … What do you think? Looks like we can create some really cool cards & projects with the embossing past!

Positively Picturesque … Part 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s cards … I’m back today with the second round of the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. You will see the remaining 2 cards from the kit and my Alternative Project.  Here is a shot of yesterday’s cards …

Here is the 3rd of the 4 card designs in the kit. It’s actually quite “Springy” Love the little tulips and how they are nestled into the heart like a little puppet show! The tulips are pre-printed so no worry about stamping solid images or “straight”! Even the grass was pre-cut for us! Wonder if they do lawns? lol

The last card is created using the heart that was popped out of the 3rd cards front panel. The little colored banners are die cut stickers … how easy is that! Then we add a little Washi Tape onto the heart and add the “love” with the enclosed glue dots.

I almost forgot to stamp the “you” so it was added after I assembled the card (lucky!). The hearts were suppose to be stamped in the Soft Sky but I like the contrast of the Tranquil Tide … so just like Frank Sinatra … I did it my way!

For my alternative card, I choose to use the “heart” again … in fact, I used both the heart and it’s negative on the same card …

I popped out the heart and covered it with the Washi Tape that was used on the first cards (Yes … we got 2 colors of washi tape) and then cut down the negative to fit the card. Before mounting it onto my card base, I put a piece of “Vellum Cardstock” behind it to give it a different look.

I attached the Washi Heart onto the card and added the “love” … I thought about coloring it but changed my mind because I really wanted it to stand out, and it does with the natural wood look.

Lastly I used a few of the “Glitter Enamel Dots” to add a touch of bling to the card! I just love those glitter dots!!

I appreciate you coming back to check out the second round of cards. Hope you liked them … I still have left over supplies!! Maybe I’ll make even more.
