Just for Fun: Coffee & Pie

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share a card that we made at our Coffee Café class this past fall.  We had fun using many of the items for the product suite!

The intent of the photo was for my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page. I came up with the idea after I had posted a picture of a cool dessert and it got more views and comments than my cards … hummm!??

So I thought ….  

I thought maybe if I added a tasty treat with my card, it might get a bit more attention! lol

We used the Coffee Break Designer Series paper for our background and to create our focal point – which is the coffee pot & cup highlighted with the use of the Circle Framelits Dies.

The greeting was created by using the technique “Direct to Rubber” or coloring directly onto the stamp just the words you want to use. The little heart from the Corrugated Elements ties these both together.

It was a fun class and a fun card to make, and I hope you enjoyed the card as much as I enjoyed the dessert that goes with it!

Thank you so much for checking out my blog today.

Hope your day is a good one ~

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

Two for Tuesday: Star of Light / Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared my card from the Brightly Lit Christmas bundle, and said my greeting came from the Star of Light Stamp set … Today, I have 2 beautiful cards to share with you from our Holiday Stamping Retreat!

Both of these cards were created using the Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight thinlets, and were done by two of our retreat attendees!!

Our first card was created by our first guest stamper: Peggy…

I love the simplicity of this card, the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper really does create the “Star of Wonder”.

In addition to the stamp set and dies, Peggy used the Gently Falling Embossing Folder to add some texture to the card … it’s just so pretty.

My second guest stamper is Kathie …

Kathie’s card was created in what we call the “Z-Fold” card. This gives your card a real wow factor but it’s Kathie’s placement of her stamping and die cuts that bring out the real beauty of the card.

Kathie also used the Night of Navy and Whisper White, highlighted with the Silver Glimmer paper.

Both of these cards are totally different and showcase the elegance and beauty of this Stamp Set: Star of Light. Don’t forget the Starlight Framelit Dies … Simply beautiful!!

I thank you for joining me today and hope these beautiful cards have inspired your holiday card making.

Have a bright, beautiful day ~





Brightly Lit Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy  Monday!! Today I have a beautiful card to share that our Stamp Club did last month. I also want to let you know that TODAY ONLY …. FREE SHIPPING!!

We made this card from the Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.  This is one of those stamp sets I just had to have … it reminded me of Christmas’ past. Everything about this bundle just brought back some beautiful memories. 

The designer paper comes from the “Christmas Around the World” … not only the plaid design but the wreath and bow!! The dies from the bundle fit perfectly with the designs on the paper.

The lamp post has two different styles of lights … I chose the ones that have the coordinating dies that cut out the “gold” we put behind the lamp! I love it when the light hits it because it appears to actually be lit up… it brings it to life. I borrowed the greeting from a favorite Christmas stamp set for last year (still available) … the Star of Light stamp set found on page 122.

These two stamp sets really make a good team, I think the verbiage works well with the lamp post! I also think FREE Shipping goes good with all your wants and must haves in either catalog!!
