Wooo Hooo … Everything is Rosy!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have one of the cards I created using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.  Wow … this kit is full of goodies and tons of designer paper to create a lot of cards.  We did 5 in class, one of which was a quick and easy gift card! We used different layouts/folds and a learned a couple new techniques … all parts of the kits were covered in the class.

Today’s card features a beautiful designer paper of Night of Navy with Rose Gold leaf pattern and we used the Rose Gold Foil paper with it.  The ladies learned a really cool way to cut the foil paper and die cut it into pieces to create 3 cards!! Here is our first card with this technique …

You can see the designer paper sits upon the foil paper and then adhered to the Night of Navy cardstock base. The greeting is stamped on Whisper White but rests upon another Rose Gold foil die cut.

The card is finished off with the beautiful Night of Navy ribbon with Rose Gold foil edging.  It’s so pretty.  Oh wait … I’m not done, we used one of the edgelit dies that come in the product medley and used it to create a beautiful element inside our card, and then it was topped off with a piece of the Designer paper.

Last night I posted a video from the Stampin’ Up! home office that features 6 more samples from the Everything is Rosy Product Medley … Check it out HERE!

I’ll share another card from my class with you tomorrow … If you are interested in having this kit for yourself, contact me or click on the link below.  If you purchase the kit from me, I will send you a PDF of my class cards which includes step by step instructions on how to make the gift card card!!  My class focused on utilizing the products in the kit, the video shows you more outside the box!!  I’m so excited about this product medley!!

Let me know if you have any questions about todays card, the product medley or anything else related to the contents of my blog.  Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me.

Enjoy your holiday weekend.




From All of Us …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Wednesday!! Today I have another card share featuring the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum … I’ll admit it, I’m having a hard time letting this one go!!  The stained glass imagery is perfect for coloring with your Stampin’ Blends.  I have a cute one for you … if you’re a Goldie Hawn fan you might want to call it “Bird on a Wire” … lol

Such a fun and simple card to make … I think the hardest part was how I was going to color the birds, coloring was easy, I just wasn’t sure what color they should be!  I get a little carried away like that! lol  What’s fun is that the colors blend so you can mix colors together and soften the edges.

The greeting comes from the Itty Bitty Wishes stamp set and then I punched them out with the 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ punches.  I think sometimes we are so used to grabbing our BigShot we forget to use our simple tools, like our punches. Quick and handy!!  But, speaking of the BigShot … I did use it to create a beautifully textured background with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder.

I will be back tomorrow with another from the Graceful Glass vellum … I can’t resist!

Thanks so much for joining me today, hope you have a good one.

Shine Like a Diamond / Guest Stamper: Peggy K.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … Well … Well … Made it through Monday!! Hope you had a good day and your Tuesday will be even better!  Today I have another card share from our Stamping Retreat Attendee Swap. This swap was created by Peggy K.

This pretty floral card stands out in black and white with a pop of pink, and the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set is the focal point to the card.  This is one of my favorite verses stamp set, especially when you are creating cards for friends.

Peggy also uses the Country Floral Embossing folder to create a subtle background with a touch of texture.  This folder was highlighted in the Sale-a-bration catalog but it will however be included in the upcoming 2019 – 2020 Annual Catalog!  Wooo Hooo! That does not happen too often, but I’m glad it is returning because it’s a great addition and it’s beautiful.

I appreciate you coming back to see what I’m up to!! Stop back tomorrow and I’ll have something special to share.

Till then … Have a great day!

I’m back with more Samples!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back!  I took a little break while I was down in Terra Haute, Indiana for a Stampin’ Up! event … our Great Lakes Leadership event.  I went with my friend and fellow demonstrator Gloria Helmbrecht. There we met with other Stampin’ Up! leaders and our Great Lakes Region Manager … Shannon West. We were there to learn more about our business and how to help our downlines, and that is why I was there!

Plus … there was swapping and samples (some of which I will share today) and share more in the upcoming days. Here is a cute display that my new demo friend Michelle made …

Several demonstrators shared their work to create a beautiful display of cards, many from the new 2019-2020 Catalog! And while I’m on that thought … my catalogs will be arriving shortly!! And if you’re a current customer of mine, you’ll have one with your name on it!! If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a catalog, message me, I’d be honored to include you in my group of stamping friends.

Here is a sampling of bookmarks that someone made (I do not have a name to give the credit to). These were created from the Everythings Rosie Limited time promotion that is currently taking place, again, contact me if you would like more information.

Aren’t they adorable? I am hosting a class on Thursday with this kit. This was a pre-purchase class, so each participant in the class will come in to their kit and the supplies need to create the cards I designed. I’m looking forward to a fun evening with stampin’ friends.

My last share today is a card that a fellow demonstrator made using the new Hostess Stamp Set; New Wonders. I think this is one of the cutest Hostess sets and I just can’t resist getting it for myself!

I hope you enjoyed this little showcase, I’ll be back with more!! There a so many opportunities to connect with fellow demonstrators and stampers, if you are looking to find like minded individuals, new friends … or your “tribe” so to speak, message me … let’s talk.

Have yourself a beautiful day, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Here is the link to purchase the Everything is Rosy product medley … If you purchases this through me before the end of the month when the promotion ends, I will send you a tutorial of all the project we are making in my Everything is Rosy Class! Thank you.

Saying Goodbye to the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

One of my favorite products is about to leave the catalog for good … the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum.  I have some of the cards I have created this past year to share with you today.

The Graceful Glass suite by Stampin’ Up! is perfect for all those moments you’ve wanted to steal the stained glass from a church. Brian from Stampin’ Up! shows you the products that make up the Graceful Glass suite, as well as several ideas and different ways to color the vellum.

I’m happy to say that the stamp set and coordinating dies will return in the new catalog … the vellum will be gone (and so will the 10% savings on the bundle).  I colored the vellum from the back with the Stampin’ Blends and then used the Wink of Stella to give it a little shimmer.

The next card is one of the cards that were displayed at our demonstrator OnStage event in Milwaukee last spring.  I love how Pat used the circle dies to create a frame and highlight the vellum.  Notice the wood designer paper … that just recently sold out.

The next card is one I did to showcase the flowers in the vellum pack … it’s one of my favorites, so simple and yet so elegant.  Again, I colored the vellum from the back using the Stampin’ Blends.

I’m on the road again this weekend traveling to Indiana for a Stampin’ Up! Leadership event. I’m a little nervous about this on … I’ve been asked to do a presentation on “Sales”.  This is not something I do but I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and facing the “public speaking” demon!  Talking you to my stampin’ friends is easy … so I’ll just pretend you are there with me.

Thank you for stopping by today…

Have a good one.



To order your own Graceful Glass suite,

Daisy Delights: Two Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather … it’s been amazing and it’s suppose to be gorgeous today too. OK … I’m not the local weather person, so let me talk more about what I’m good at, stamping!  Today I have two really cute cards that were created by my Spring Retreat Attendees Kellie and Michelle.  The spring floral cards both used the Daisy Punch, which by the way … will be in the upcoming catalog and has another stamp set to coordinate with it!

Let’s start with Kellie’s card, she used both the Daisy Punch and the Daisy Delights stamp set…

I believe Kellie used Blushing Bride and Whisper White as her core color pallet.  The white background was embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  I love the little Happy Birthday Banner … it’s so cute and adds a sweet touch to the card.  One of my favorite embellishments, the Faceted Gems! Whether you use the Gold or the Clear, you can’t go wrong and I just love them with this daisy punch!

Count your petals on Michelle’s card …

Is this a card saying … He love me, he loves me not?  I’m not sure but it’s really cute!  Michelle’s daisies were punched out using the beautiful Shimmery White cardstock (No Wink of Stella needed!) this cardstock has a shimmer of it’s own,

Michelle’s color pallet consists of white and the beautifully bold Daffodil Delight, bright and happy! Her background was created using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and was cut into 3 panels to highlight each transition of the daisy

Don’t you just love a punch that can create two totally different styles of cards… That’s what I call “cost effective”! lol

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to join me in “picking daisies”.

Enjoy your day ~
