Get Creative with … What’s Your Type?

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

The idea for today’s post comes from comments made at my stamping club last night. The were discussing the “What’s Your Type” stamp set.

Stamping is all about creativity, and this might just be our most creative set yet! This Stampin’ Up! video walks you through the ins and outs of the What’s Your Type set, showing you how to build your own alphabet for amazing personalized greetings.

They are talking about last years (2014-15 Annual Catalog) that displays the alphabet guide. If you are interested in purchasing the stamp set from me, and want a copy of the catalog, let me know, I’m sure I have a few left.

Here are two cute samples created with this stamp set. They give you a good idea of how creative you can get with this stamp set … the sky is the limit!


I’ve put a list of the key ingredients for you at the bottom of my post … you are going to want the framelits and stamp set used for the awesome sun card.

Thanks for stopping by …

Have a wonderful weekend ~


Here’s the key ingredients for the sun card …

Simply Sunday … Spring Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’d like to share a touch of “spring” with you. I have two cards that I created using the Sheer Perfection Vellum… I’m so sad this will be gone in a couple of days! I teamed up the Vellum with the “Crazy About You” stamp set and the coordinating “Flower Medallion Punch” on both cards.



My first card fits well with my “Simply Sunday’s” theme ….


Simple flowers with a touch of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie from the Brights Collection of Markers. The vellum is placed over our Whisper White with a Basic Gray mat … popped up on a Daffodil Delight card base. Add a simple ribbon and your card is complete.


Inside I added a bit more of the vellum and created a greeting from the “Crazy about You” stamp set. The stamp set is great for creating your own sayings because it has so much to choose from.


My second card has a few more steps but still easy to recreate. I again began with the vellum and colored it in with an Old Olive marker … also from the Brights Collection. Because it takes a bit to dry, I dipped it in clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. This gave it some added texture and really made the green pop!


The vellum was mounted on Old Olive and then matted on the Basic Gray, and secured to the Old Olive card base. I used the Oval Collection Framelits for the greeting and topped off the flower with a rhinestone.


I finished off the inside with a couple of left over strips of cardstock and stamped the flower in the corner.  There are more great patterns in the vellum, and if you need to put in an order, do it before the Sale-a-bration period ends on Tuesday … don’t miss out.

As for my Stampin’ Tip … I wanted to show you a neat way I was shown to store my Photopolymer sets.

I took the clear sheet with the images on & slide it into my stamp case … make sure that the words are “backwards”, then you can place your photopolymer stamps directly onto the case. They stick just fine.

With this set I needed to use both sides of the case, so I slide in a piece of plain white computer paper to block the writing that is on the sleeve.  You could do this to both sides if you like the brighter image on the left.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~

Crazy about You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been having a great time down in my Stampin’ Studio creating cards with all the new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Today I’d like to share a touch of Valentine’s day with you … before we know it, it will be here and we want to be prepared. I began with the cute new “Happy Heart” Textured Impressions folder and used it with the “Shimmery White” cardstock.


Sometimes I like to pull stuff out of my stash, that I haven’t used for a while. I find that most of the time is works beautifully together with our new items, and our Shimmery White cardstock is subtly beautiful with just a touch of shimmer.

I wanted to create a “Shaker Card” so I used the “Sweetheart” punch from the catalog and punched out a section for my window. I covered it with a piece of the Window Sheets and then used the outer edges of the stampin’ dimensionals to create the “well” in which I put my confetti in.

To create the confetti I used the “Confetti Heart Border Punch” in the Occasions catalog – pg.5. and punched them out in different colors, the punch already supplies you with different sizes! I then pealed off the backing from the stampin’ dimensionals and covered it with a piece of the Shimmery White cardstock.

Now, I wanted some type of greeting or verse on the inside so I decided to create my own with the “Crazy About You” stamp set. It contains 33 stamps and will create endless greetings and or verses for you. Here is what I came up with …


I snuck the little hearts out of the “Hello Life” stamp set to complete the look on the inside.

To finish the outside of my card, I added one more heart that I punched our of Rich Razzelberry. The heart comes from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.

I wanted the “shaker” part of the card to be the focal point so did not add a greeting or ribbon to the front … just the one little heart. As it turns out, it matches those little hearts from the embossing folder perfectly!


Thanks for dropping by,,, have a heartfelt day
