Thanks… Love ya! Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

How are you today?  I am feeling pretty darn good, hope you are too.

I am excited to share today’s card with you.  I have been “piggy-backing” my cards for the past couple days … and today is no exception.  Yesterday I shared a card using the “Hip Notes” stamp set, so today I will share another design using that same set!

So my first task was to decide which image I would use this time, so I chose the “Thanks”.  Well those little arrows took me to the “Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper”.  I chose the pattern with “arrows” on it!


You got it … it was the little circles on the designer paper that made me think of the “Circle Card Thinlits Die”.  I love working with this die!  It is so easy to use, and the recipient of the card just “flips” over it!  Ok … bad pun, I’m sorry!  Back to the card.

Well, with all these little arrow going on … I thought I would pull out my “Chevron Border Punch”.  I bought this a while ago and never used it yet!  Whew … I was really happy when Stampin’ Up! carried it over into the Occasions catalog!!


Of course you can see that my color pallet was supplied by my designer paper … so I went with the Baked Brown Sugar, the Coastal Cabana, and Very Vanilla.

After cutting out the “circle flip card base” … I punched out at Baked Brown Sugar mat, using the 2-1/2″ circle punch.  For my greeting, that was stamped in the Baked Brown Sugar onto Very Vanilla, and then cut out with one of the circles from the “Circle Collection Framelits”.  Just as I said yesterday, I also used my “Magnetic Platform”.

As you can see, one little image can take you on a journey through an entire creation!  Another cute and simple card … what did we ever do before that “Big Shot” came to town!  I’ll tell ya, it was mighty boring around here.  LOL

Oh yes, and when you “flip” that card … you will get a sweet little greeting from the Just Sayin’ stamp set that I used a couple days ago.


Thanks for stopping by and following along on my card making journey today.

It’s a Boy … Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday my Stampin’ Friends!

Hope this post finds you well and in good spirits.  We are having a beautiful day here in southeastern Wisconsin … we may even get to 40 degrees!  I’ll take this “heat wave” since they are predicting below zero temps in 2 days.

Today I have a cute little “Sneak Peek” card for you that not only gives you a sneak peek at the Occasions catalog, but also a Sale-a-bration item that you can earn free!

As I promised yesterday, I am going to show you a peek at the new designer paper “Watercolor Wonder” … there are so many beautiful patterns in there, I decided to showcase my least favorite~


I’m not to big on “splotches” … is that a word?  Anyway, I decided to challenge myself with my least favorite, but I must say that I love the way this turned out.  How cute for a baby card.  I know my baby is 30 something, but I still recall that little ones are good at making “splotches”.

Once I chose the paper, I cased a pattern from our Stampin’ Success magazine, and used the new “Banner Framelit Dies” to cut out a banner from the designer paper.

Next, I punched a banner from our Sale-a-bration banner punch, but it was a bit short, so I made it longer.  I took a picture showing how to do it, but because the product has not yet been released … I can only show samples and not the actual product.  So I will be sure to show you how I did it, after the catalog release.

I used the same stamp set as yesterday, “A Dozen Thoughts” and decided to use my “Stamp-a-ma-jig” to place the words where I wanted them on the banner.  I then roughed up the edges to create a bit more texture.


Then I just finished it off with a pretty little bow.


Thank you for stopping by today!  Enjoy your Saturday.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.  Today I am going to share another “SNEAK PEAK” from the upcoming Occasions Catalog.

I also have the latest Weekly Deals … sweet!  Keep coming back, as I will share with you in the next few days, cards I have made using items off from the Weekly Deals…. even sweeter!

Plus …. BIG NEWS!  Stampin’ Up! will be adding more new items to the Clearance rack on Friday, December 27th.

First … my Sneak Peak!

My card share today comes from the new “Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards & Envelopes”.  There are 20 printed cards on Watercolor paper … 4 each of 5 designs and 20 vanilla envelopes.


I teamed the note cards with the “Million & One” stamp set.  A little thanks to all of you who follow my blog.

I embellished the card by pairing up our beautiful butterfly punches… they looks so good  layered together.

First is the “Elegant Butterfly” punched and sponged with Crisp Cantaloupe from the 2013-2015 In Color Collection, then “Bitty Butterfly” which was punched and sponged with So Saffron.

Once layered, I topped off the butterflies with the pearls.
