Dazzling Dinosaurs …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m just compiling a few of my favorite samples is the DINOROAR … Why is it going 😦  I’m so sad, this is such a cute stamp set and coordinating dies!

Although the designer paper has retired last year … I wanted to share the idea of creating “Welcome Baby” with this stamp and die set.  Totally unique and oh so cute!!

What better way to give a gift than to dress it up with dinosaurs~

I tucked gift cards inside the box … hidden in the packing material. YES … it was a bit messy but oh so much fun!  They loved it.

Probably my favorite dino out of this set, the little guy with his arms wide open because I love you this much ❤  Above and below are two samples using the same dinosaur but totally different look.

And we’ll finish off with a grand showcase of several samples…

I hope you enjoyed sitting with me and looking through a few samples from the amazing Dinoroar set and coordinating dies.

Thank you for joining me!

Saying Good-bye to Old Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I’m just compiling a few of my favorite stamps -n- dies that are retiring in a showcase for you. I’m going to miss some of these, but I am excited to start sharing some of the new items coming out when the new catalog goes Live June 3rd!!  Grab a cup of coffee (or wine … depending on when your viewing) and join me on this journey ❤

I’d like to start with my favorite Halloween set … Spooktacular Bash.  This is a “Fun Fold” card that we made in our Stamp Club this year!  Watch as it opens into a display of “fun” …

Spooktacular Bash Bundle 153040

Here are a few more projects from that bundle …

If I’m correct … The “Monster Bash Designer paper (150447) is currently ON SALE for ONLY $4.60! It appears that the stamp set has already sold out, but if you look closely … I only used it for the greeting. Yikes! However … the Coffin Boxes are available and for only $2.80

If you love Halloween like I do … Now is the perfect time to pick up these goodies at an AMAZING Discount!!  Heck, while your laying low during the Covid outbreak … you can have this all planned out.

Next on my list is the DINOROAR … Why is it going 😦  I’m so sad, this is such a cute bundle!

Should we get serious now? lol  Let’s talk flowers … perfect since we are in “planting” season right now.  How about we start with the amazing Beautiful Promenade ….

Or how about the Love What You Do stamp set …

The Embellishment Kit which has the pretty tags and embellishments you see on the cards included in the pretty gift box and the Pearlized Doilies are both on sale now!!

One of my All-Time favorite stamp sets and a big hit on Pinterest; Flourishing Phrases ….

Love, love, love this stamp set and dies … and the greetings are awesome for all occasions!  I don’t see many “Just a Note” anymore unless it has musical notes around it. Which is fine sometimes, but sometimes, I like to send “just a note” to a friend to let them know I’m thinking about them.

I’m going to stop here, because if I start on Christmas … I’ll have you here for hours! 😉  I hope you enjoyed sitting with me and looking through a few of the retiring items (my favorites). I’ll have a list below of the items shown here today.

Thank you for joining me! Enjoy the holiday weekend.

STAMPING SUPPLY LIST ….You’ll see the beautiful Glimmer paper on some of my cards … just a “heads up” that all of the Glimmer Papers are retiring! Sparkle, Gold, Silver … yup, they are all on the discontinued list.






Two 4 Tuesday: It’s a Boy! … It’s a Girl!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you someone who likes fun, unique cards? Well … today I have two whimsical cards to share with you. Dinosaurs are making a come back, and they are cuter than ever. I’m thrilled to share with you two sweet little cards I created to welcome a new baby.  With the rise in popularity in dinosaurs again, these cute little creatures arrived just in time.

On my take on the “It’s A Boy” card, I incorporated almost all of the products included in the Dinoraur product suite; stamps, dies, designer paper and embellishments.  This little guy is ready to great the world.  The designer paper on both cards are the background, and on this card I teamed it up with Pretty Peacock cardstock & ink.

My “It’s a Girl” card is created using the help from the “Little Twinkle” stamp set.  I embossed the greeting in Flirty Flamingo and dipped it into Clear Embossing powder and heated it up to a shiny creation!  After stamping the broken egg … I added some of the bling from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. We girls like our bling …

Quick, cute and creative really describes these non-traditional baby cards. They are too cute not to fall in love with … just like the new little ones that come into our life.

Hope you enjoyed todays Two 4 Tuesday post and my twist on It’s a Boy … It’s a Girl cards.

Thanks much for stopping by.  Enjoy the day.

Simply Sunday … Simply Rawrsome!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I myself have a little visitor at my house … my four year old Great Grandson, you know, the one that is head over heals for Dinosaurs.  Needless to say … todays card is not what I was expecting to post, but we could not get past the dinosaurs.  Today’s card does fit my simply Sunday theme as JR helped make it … he did all the die cutting! I should have taken a picture, it was too cute.

Our little dinosaur was just a partial on the designer paper so we thought he would look cute inside the egg … like a surprise!  He also cut out the egg and helped me stamp it  Junior liked the blue (Pretty Peacock) designer paper so that is what we used.

The entire suite includes that Dino Days Stamp set, Dino Dies, Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, the Denim Ribbon and Dinoroar Enamal Shapes.  This suite or the bund)le (stamps & dies) will qualify your for the Bonus Days Coupon … and a Virtual Rewards point from me.

He is not giving me much time to blog here, in fact, he’s sitting on my lap … all snuggled in, so I will be back tomorrow with another card – the one I had planned for today. lol

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a beautiful Sunday.




I love you THIS much!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed my Kick-off Card to the Dinoroar Suite … I have another cutie to share with you today.  Again I started with the Dinoroar Designer Series paper, just another pattern, this one is a nice background of leaves.

I wanted to tone down the color just a bit so I added a piece (4″ x 2-2/4″) of Vellum cardstock … this way you can still see the pattern but it does not over power my dinosaur …

Our friendly little dinosaur was cut from another patterned from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper.  The greeting, stamped in Lovely Lipstick coordinates with my dinosaur who’s poor little arms cannot stretch far enough to express his love.

The three little hearts that I added to my card to help our little friend show his love, were die cut from the Support Ribbon dies and were popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to create some dimension.

Thank you for joining me today in our journey back into the days of dinosaurs … I’m so happy they’re back!

Hope you have a wonderful day ~



Dino-mite Kids Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s time to have a little fun … and our next card is Dyno-mite!! lol  I got the Dinoroar Suite products because my great grandson is head over heals in love with Dinosaurs, so how could I resist.  However, I didn’t know how much fun I would have making cards and projects with this suite.  Todays card is pretty simple, I began with the whimsical Dinoroar Designer Series paper …

These cute little critters will put a smile on anyone’s face.  I attached my designer paper onto the Lovely Lipstick card base.  I also used Lovely Lipstick to stamp my greeting.  This was cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies. I also used the scallop oval to cut the Mango Medley mat.  I popped up my greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a leaf from the Dinoroar Enamel Shapes that are included in the product suite.

The entire suite includes that Dino Days Stamp set, Dino Dies, Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, the Denim Ribbon and Dinoroar Enamal Shapes.  This suite or the bundle (stamps & dies) will qualify your for the Bonus Days Coupon … and a Virtual Rewards point from me.

Thanks for being a Friend-a-saurus and checking out my blog today …

Be sure to stop back tomorrow, I will have another goodie to share from this fun product suite.

Have a “roaring” good day!
