I “Heart” You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have that cute card I promised you!!  I ❤ my Stampin’ Up! job and I ❤ this bundle.  I just had to share a least one more card with you from the Meant to Be bundle.

Did you know that the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies actually coordinate with the All My Love Designer Series paper … and the pretty flower hearts (2 sizes) can be cut with the dies.

Today’s card features the die cut heart … 

Oh my, my … isn’t this cute!! I love the floral heart with the Highland Heather Gingham Gala 6″ X 6″ Designer Series Paper.  I ❤ you! The “I” was die cut from the Large Letters Framelits Dies and “YOU” comes from the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies which were from our Sale-a-Bration catalog last year!

This year you can get the pretty Organdy Ribbon for Free… 5 bolts of ribbon: Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime and its on todays card. Isn’t it amazing what a little ribbon can do to a card?

I hope you enjoyed todays card, and I thank you for stopping back today.

Have a great day ~


Hearts a Plenty …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

For the past week, I’ve been sharing samples from our Meant to Be Bundle in preparation for Valentines Day. However, don’t let hearts just be for one day of the year … we should share our hearts and kindness everyday. We need a kinder world.

Today I am going to review the many cards, and you’ll also notice the sprinkling of Sale-a-bration items included on the cards.  I think you will be “amazed” at all of the different styles of cards and projects you can create with this wonderful bundle … and with this bundle, you qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!!

I start with the very basic of cards … Stamp, Paper and Ink!  Super simple, great for our new stampers.

Simply stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock.  My next card is also simple but very pretty …

This cards adds a little more dimension when we simply add layers.  Our greeting is backed with the Lovely Lipstick Foil paper which is found in the Sale-a-Bration catalog and can be yours with this bundle or a $50 purchase.

The next card introduces the BigShot and the coordinating dies in the Meant to Be Bundle …

This card is also very easy to make … just add the beautiful All My Love Designer Series paper.  The cute little white hearts are cut from the dies included in the bundle.  Many of the dies in this set include the stitched look and the scallops edges.

The next card uses the same little white hearts … and they are stamped in Flirty Flamingo.  Works well with our flirty background, which is another pattern from the All My Love Designer paper.

The cute scalloped edge on the bottom is yet another die from the coordinating die set in this bundle.  I did introduce the new Stitched Rectangle dies … these are located in the new Occasions Catalog.  You could easily change the greeting on this card to Welcome a Baby, a Sweet Sixteen or a birthday card … possibilities are endless.

If you’re looking for treat boxes for your children’s upcoming Valentines party or a cute little gift for a neighbor or co-worker, here are some great ideas (You’ll see these in the Occasions Catalog) …

My next card features more of the dies, the one I’m using here actually cuts 2 hearts with one roll of the BigShot…

Again I am using the All My Love Designer paper and the Sale-a-Bration Lovely Lipstick Foil paper.  I also embossed my heart with the Tufted Embossing Folder … how cute is that!!

And my card from yesterday, the Grapefruit Grove foil paper is highlighted and actually comes in the same package as the Lovely Lipstick … both of these beautiful papers for FREE.

This card uses the largest of the heart dies and the beautiful little flower die that is also included in the die set.  The ribbon is also available in the Sale-a-bration catalog and comes in a package of 5 colors!!  The background is actually vellum designer paper that comes from the Floral Romance Special paper … in the Occasions Catalog.

So many different styles … and from simple beginnings for our newest stampers to lots of beautiful layers and the BigShot.  Don’t forget all the amazing projects and treat boxes you can also make.

I thank you for joining me today … I have another for you tomorrow, so stop back and check it out.

Till then, have yourself an amazing Monday!!



Simply Sunday: Just for You

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  On my last post I promised to share a card that featured the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper that is in the Sale-A-Bration catalog… well, today is the day, and you will not be disappointed. It also features the Meant to Be Bundle and I’m introducing the beautiful Floral Romance Specialty Designer paper.

The beautiful background is the Floral Romance Designer paper … but this pattern is actually “vellum” and oh so pretty! This lacy background works perfectly with our hearts.  Today I’m using the largest of the heart, and like yesterdays die … this one also cuts 2 heart – the plain heart, and the thin outer heart with the scalloped edge.

To get this layering, I actually ran the die through with Whisper White (creating two hearts) and then the Grapefruit Grove Foil sheets.  You can actually create another heart layout with the White lace edge around the graperfruit heart. However … today the white is the center so we could stamp our greeting.  The greeting is stamped in Petal Pink, which coordinates with the Floral Romance paper.

The Grapefruit Grove Foil sheet has an amazing prism of color that runs through it, so it complimented the Petal Pink that I used.  I also used the sweet floral die in the set as an added touch to my card, and I thought it works beautifully with our vellum Floral Romance Designer Specialty paper.

The Grapefruit Grove Ribbon can also be found in our Sale-A-Bration catalog and you can get it, or the foil paper for FREE when you purchase this bundle or any purchase of $50 before shipping & handling.

However you hold that card and the light reflects on the Grapefruit Grove Foil paper … you will fall in love with it, just like I did!!  I guess it was “meant to be”.

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me, it is appreciated.

Have a fabulous day ~



To My Valentine …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a Valentine card that was inspired by a “Heart Box” that we have at the Candy store I work at. It also highlights the fabulous Lovely Lipstick Foil sheets from our Sale-A-Bration catalog … there is also a very spectacular Grapefruit Grove Foil sheets included in the package!!  I will share a card using that tomorrow!

I’m starting with the “MEANT TO BE” bundle from our Occasions Catalog … I have shared several projects using this bundle already. You can create die-cut hearts in all shapes and sizes in record time with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. The dies have stitching and scalloped details… and with the one I’m using today, one cut gets you two hearts!

The embossed heart reminds me of the decorations I was using when setting up the candy store yesterday … I cut the heart our first. It cuts a scalloped heart and then the inner heart so you actually have two.  I used the “Tufted” Embossing folder for the fun texture on this heart.  I used stampin’ dimensionals to keep the two pieces together.

I also cut out the Basic Black heart out with this die but only used the inside heart.  My more “masculine” heart, goes well with my Lovely Lipstick Foil tufted heart ❤  All die cuts and the “Happy Valentine’s Day” which was punched with the Pretty Label Punch, were all popped up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The pretty paper comes from the “All My Love” Designer Series paper, and is the flip side to my “Thinking of You” card I posted earlier this month.

We had a little chuckle at my club this week as I passed around a few cards that I have created … each person opened the card to see what was inside (I laughed and said … don’t look in there!)  So, I’m going to make it a point to stamp on the insides as well …

I actually like the little border of Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black hearts … and it ties in with the front of our card.  All the stamps used on today’s card are from the Meant to Be stamp set that is included in this bundle.

The Meant to Be bundle not only qualifies you for a FREE Sale-A-Bration item but if you purchase from me, you will also receive a Virtual Rewards Point from me (Every $50 qualifies you… and you don’t have to worry – I do all the work, your card gets stamped with your purchase) When you have 10 … I send you a card so you can claim a FREE Stamp Set of Your Choice… YES, Your Choice!!

If you are located in the United States and looking for a creative coach/demonstrator … I’d be happy to help you.

Thank you so much for the visit today, and if you liked my card … please hit click on the LIKE button on the bottom of the page, or leave a comment, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Have a sweet day ~

Sweet Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed  you yesterday but I’m back today with twice the fun! I’ve got two cards for you today that feature the adorable “Hello Cupcake” stamp set from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Lets start with our first card, this card was created with our beginner stampers in mind … Stamps, Paper and Ink! My color pallet is Flirty Flamingo and Crumb cake. The stamps are photopolymer so the images are easy for anyone to align.

The cute little greeting comes with the stamp set along with two other greeting, the sprinkles (which I stamped around the edges to look like confetti) and 3 more stamps. Just think of all the cute cards you will be able to make with this set, and it’s FREE with a $50 purchase.

My second card is definitely a step up, although I did use exactly the same stamps and color scheme.  My cupcake got a touch of added ink by coloring it with a blender pen and a touch of our favorite “Wink of Stella”.  I also fussy cut the cupcake out so I could pop it up and make it the focal point of my card.

I used the same Flirty Flamingo cardstock but instead of using to mat the white, I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies to cut out an opening which highlights my greeting.  I also added a bright pop of color with the Gingham Gala Designer paper … the coordinating ribbon can be found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog as well.

I could not resist adding the sweet little “Frosted Flower” Embellishments to my card, and if they weren’t cute enough … I added a touch of Wink of Stella and a Rhinestone to the center for a bit of bling! This is a perfect card for your little sweetie!!

Thank you for stopping back today and enjoying a “cupcake” or two!!

Have a sweet day ~



Quick -n- Easy: Precious Parcels Card kit

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you need a cute card fast or if you are new to stamping, the Precious Parcels Card kit in the Sale-a-bration catalog, is the perfect answer.  These cards are easily assembled and sooo cute! They are even embossed to add a soft texture to your cards.

The Precious Parcels Card kit was one of the products highlighted at our OnStage Event in November and I fell in love with it.  Check out the video and see for yourself …

I think it’s the soft earthy tones that attract me to this card kit, and the ease of assembly is great for those of us on the go and short on time. We can still make beautiful hand crafted cards!

The colors are perfect for spring (or anytime) … they are just beautiful cards.  There are two styles of cards … stop back on Wednesday and I will share how you can jazz it up even more (for you avid stampers!)

Happy New Year! Happy Hearts!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you ready to take our “Meant to Be” stamp set to the next level?  Let’s start with the coordinating “Be Mine” Framelits and kick of the New Year in style!!

Today I have chosen yet another heart from our stamp set (so many different styles of hearts) and pair it with a pretty little heart die that will add that certain touch to your card …

Our color pallet today includes the Whisper White and the Flirty Flamingo which truly highlights this small heart pattern from the “All My Love” Designer Series paper.  The base is in Whisper White and the Flirty Flamingo somewhat mats the designer paper … the edge was cut with one of the dies included in the bundle.

Once the hearts were stamped using the Flirty Flamingo, they were die cut with one of the heart dies in the bundle.  Isn’t it pretty … I love the stitched area around the stamping and then the frilly ruffled edge.

The cute little hearts (that look like candy) are popped up onto a piece of Flirty Flamingo that was cut with the brand new Rectangle Stitched Framelits!  Wooo hooo …. been waiting for the rectangle and lovin’ the stitched edge.  🙂  The rectangle piece has also been popped up with our dimensionals to create depth and dimension on our card.

The card was completed with a small banner and a delicate little greeting announcing our love.  This card too is on the “simple” side in regards to assembly but fits with those of us who seem to “have” or “want” it all!

Thank you very much for spending your New Years Day with me!! I wish you and your family a wonderful new year filled with love, happiness and whatever you desire… including stamping! lol

Have a great day ~
