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!)

Thank you for joining me today.

Enjoy your day ~



Thinking of you …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick -n- easy card even though it uses the BigShot.  I started with the Meant to Be bundle … most see this as a Valentines stamp set but I see it as so much more. Life is about moments and hopefully moments that touch our heart … that is what I see in this set, something that can touch another’s heart.

And our All my Love Designer Series paper is literally “full” of hearts!!  This awesome paper can be used with either the “Meant to Be” bundle or the “Forever Lovely” bundle on page 5 of the Occasions catalog.

There is a little Vellum Cardstock that covers the Lovely Lipstick piece of designer paper so your greeting shows up.  The hearts were cut from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies … and the little ones came from the string on hearts die. I’ll be sure to share a card using that … I love it!


So today’s card is simple to create and it’s full of heart! This is why I chose today’s greeting for my card … “know that today a friend is thinking of you <3”  Creating a card to share with someone is like a hug in an envelope!

Thank you so much for sharing part of your day with me … it touches my heart ❤

Have a lovely day, and I look forward to meeting you back here tomorrow for a pretty little card that I created with one of our Sale-A-Bration stamp sets.
