Simply Sunday in Olive …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I think you will “fall” for today’s Simply Sunday card … I won’t need many words to describe this card and you won’t need much to make it!


I began with the beautiful Old Olive plaid pattern of designer paper found in the Farmers Market package and used the Very Vanilla as my base and front of the card.

I cut out the “maple” leaf from the “Leaflets” Framelits Dies from a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I then cut out the “grateful” from the “Seasonal Frame” Thinlits Dies out of Old Olive.

The Vanilla was popped up over the designer paper to create a beautiful dimensional look and the greeting was adhered directly to the vanilla with the Multipurpose liquid glue. Simple.


I know I talked this past week about “less is more” and this is just another card to explain my statement.

Thank you for joining me this Sunday ~

I wish you a beautiful day.




Dropping in to Say HI …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had the chance to spend time with my granddaughter and her little guy … He’s so cute!

Today I’d like to share with you the last of my “sneak peeks” into the Holiday Catalog because tomorrow it goes live!! Yes, you can finally order from this fabulous catalog.

For those of you who can’t wait … you should consider becoming one of my Star’s! There’s no obligation to sell (unless you want to make some money) you only need to keep yourself active to be able to see the catalogs early and order early … just one of the fun perks. Let me know … we’ll talk.

Here’s my card …


I started with the fabulous “Into the Woods” Designer Series paper. Our designers actually hand painted the designs, how pretty, and it coordinates with several of our stamp sets.

I choose the “Acorny Thank You” stamp set because I felt like dropping in on you to say Hi! I think that is so cute. I love all the acorns too! Oh yes … it has a coordinating punch, which you can bundle and save 15% … gotta love that!

I highlighted my punching it out with the “Decorative Label” punch … you will recognize that one. It’s in our main catalog and I use it quite a bit.

I also wanted to add some texture to my card so I created a banner with the Burlap Ribbon. I don’t know, I think burlap looks great on fall cards. What do you think?


Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I’d really love to hear what you think. You can comment below on this card or any of the “sneak peek” cards I have shared with you.

I’d also like to THANK all those who participated in my “Free Stamp Special” … I hope you enjoy you stamps. Thanks again!

Hope you all have a wonderful day … I’ll be back tomorrow with some new “Weekly Deals”.

Take care ~
