Guest Stamper: Janet Z

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a great “Man Card” for you that comes from Janet Z. and our Spring Stamping Retreats Attendee Swap! You’ve seen a few of the other cards from our swap already.

Let’s start with the stamp set “Guy Greetings” found on page 98 of your current Annual Catalog.

Janet used the antique car and cut and matted it using the “Deco Labels Collection” Framelits … this created a great focal point of the card. The greetings she used all come from the “Guy Greetings” stamp set.


The designer paper really shows off the antique car nicely.

Something Janet did for the swap which I though was genius was to leave the inside of the card “unattached” because she stamped two greeting (one on each side of the cardstock) Happy Birthday and Happy Fathers Day … this way her fellow retreat attendee’s could use the card for the occasion that fit them best. I just love that idea!

This is why I love swapping and stamping with other stampers … we all share so many wonderful ideas!

Thank you Janet for the wonderful card, and thank you for checking out today’s blog post.

Have a wonderful day!


Today’s Product Highlights …


My Heart Smiles Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Sorry I missed you yesterday … I’m spring (summer) fall cleaning! With 15 years of my business and working my other job, things tend to get tucked away for a later date and before you know it, you begin to look like a hoarder! Too much stuff and not enough room so it’s time for a major overhaul of my home.

Meanwhile I will try to keep up with posts but I  can’t promise as we will be going through the stampin’ studio too. I appreciate you checking back with me … I will try to keep you up to date, informed, and entertained! lol

Today’s card comes right from My Stampin’ Up! Website


It was posted by Stampin’ Up! CLICK HERE TO VIEW.  They have a project folder and so do I – so there are many samples to view on my website.

They used the new “Timeless Love” stamp set and teamed it with the “Watercoloring” technique! For this watercolor technique they used the “Aqua Painters.

The Deco Label Collection framelits were used to create the focal point of the card … very pretty!

I have the list of ingredients below. Please let me know if you have any questions, or feel free to post comments below.

Thanks for stopping by and sticking with me!
