Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a cute card that you can whip up with just a couple of punches and a fun embossing folder! Easy right! Cute too!


Those of you who have stamped with me for a while, know that I love to layer color on color … today it’s white. Layers on a card just add that extra touch … a little more love. The first thing I did once I decided to do the white on white, was emboss the top layer with the “Lovely Lace” embossing folder.

I like to combine my punches to create even more layering – it adds depth and dimension to the card. Here is used the “Petite Petals” punch on the Wild Wasabi, Rose Red and Island Indigo cardstock… this flower is the perfect size to highlight so many other stamp sets and projects.

I then added the little white flower – punched from the “Itty Bitty Accents” Punch Pack and topped it off with a rhinestone. I liked it … but wanted a bit more color so I added a mat in Rose Red and White – that really popped my flowers.


Awe … and you couldn’t find a better greeting to send some flowers to a friend than “because you’re awesome”.  This comes from the Sale-a-bration stamp set “Botanicals for You”. You can get this stamp set for free with a qualifying order of $50 (before shipping & handling).

I did hand cut my banner ends but you could easily use the “Triple Banner” punch. I use it all the time except when I let my sister use it to complete the extra packets of cards from my Catalog party.

Hope this quick -n- cute card inspires you to whip up a few cards for yourself.  Have fun and enjoy your weekend!

Thanks so much for joining me today.





Beautiful Botanicals …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a group of cards that were created at the Stampin’ Up! home office with the beautiful Botanicals collection! I “LOVE” this suite of products … I makes me think of warm exotic locations…. like Hawaii, Panama, the Caribbean (just some of the places I have gone courtesy of Stampin’ Up! and you!)


During Stampin’ Up!’s annual Sale-A-Bration event, you earn FREE Sale-A-Bration rewards for every $50 you spend on Stampin’ Up! products, including the very diverse Botanicals for You Stamp Set and Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack—two of our favorite Sale-A-Bration products!


One of the things that makes these products so cool is that they coordinate perfectly with the Botanical Gardens Suite from the 2016 Occasions catalog. Arrange all of these products together in a semi-organized way and you’ll come out with a set of four fantastic cards, as well as a nifty card holder. Life is good during Sale-A-Bration! Contact me lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com anytime before March 31st to learn how you can get your hands on these tropically-themed products.

Thank you for poppin’ in on me today …

Hoping your day is a beautiful one.
