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.




Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

At times during the month I have shared with you several beautiful cards from our Snowflake Showcase made with the stamp sets and dies.  I’ve loved working with this showcase of products and I’m sharing all of them with you today.   *Today is also the last day your can purchase any items in this product suite.

Love this card because I created it with the left overs … 


Don’t you just love the red card … it reminds me of a sweater! (lol … don’t ask me why?) The cute floral card was created with the Happiness Surrounds stamp set. And count me in for the watercolor background with the tree!!


Another from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set that is truly delightful and fun. The colors just pop!


Simple and Elegant in Very Vanilla and Gold … sheer Christmas.


This is my friends Margarete’s card … so beautiful and airy. I just love it and so happy she allowed me to share it with you.


This was one of my favorite cards that I designed for our  2018 Holiday Stamping Retreat … This is the card that generated the “scraps” that I used on the card at the beginning of the “parade of cards” …


Could not make a card sample without using the snowflake swoosh … it is one of the main reasons I had to have this die set (and coordinating stamp sets). 


Another card created with the Happiness Surround’s stamp set (lol … spelled it wrong on my card) This one was fun, we made it in my Advanced Stamparatus Class but it was easy to make!!


I could not let this day go by without sharing all these lovely cards with all of you who have purchased this showcase of products, and to remind everyone that today is the last day, so if you love it … don’t let it go.  It is gone for good after midnight tonight.

Thank you for joining me for my Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help placing your order.

Have a wonderful day … let’s kick off the weekend right!

Here are the products available in the Snowflake Showcase ….



Peace On Earth Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you the second reason why I had to have the Snowflake Showcase …

If you’re looking for something a little different and that will take that ordinary “snowflake” up a notch, then you too will “melt” over this combination. Yesterday (and the day before) I shared cards that featured the big so today I want to bring back the tree, and the die that turned my head.

WOW … this pretty card was done in the new Soft Seafoam and white – simple. Do you see the “swoosh” of snowflakes? That is one cut with this die … I love this unique shape! I cut this from Vellumn cardstock so you get a soft look.

Each snowflake was highlighted with a rhinestone gem except the large one which I used the snowflake trinket.

This simple yet pretty card could be done in any color and the snowflake swoosh is the centerpiece of the card.  This stamp set and die are only available for a few more days, and then it will be gone.

I hope you enjoyed todays card, I will be back tomorrow featuring the second stamp set in the Snowflake Showcase.

Thanks for dropping in …

Enjoy your day.

Today’s Stamping Supply List …


Guest Stamper: Margrethe Hooper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend, got your shopping done or started and maybe a few decorations hung. I worked extra hours, enjoyed an nice Thanksgiving dinner and had some well needed downtime and for all of it, I am grateful.

Today I have a beautiful card to share with you that was created by my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator; Margrethe Larsen Hooper. We found each other on-line … Pinterest to be exact, and Stampin’ Up! has made us sisters!

We finally got to meet in person a few weeks ago at the 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! OnStage event and it was so much fun to hang out together!

Margrethe’s card was made using the Snowflake Showcase which I will be featuring all week long. This beautiful product suite is only available through then end of November, and when I saw Margrethe’s gorgeous card, I asked if she would allow me to share it on my blog …

I really can’t resist this snowflake … it is so beautiful, and Margrethe’s color combinations and designer paper really bring it to life. The Linen thread and the Subtle textured embossing folder gives the card an organic feel, while the pretty Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle added a touch of elegance.

I hope you enjoyed Margrethe’s card as much as I did… such a beautiful combination of color and textures and it truly highlights the Snowflake Showcase products.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will continue sharing cards from this product suite.

Have a marvelous Monday!!
