Simply Sunday: To an Amazing Women

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have my Simply Sunday Series card for you. Simple yet so pretty … it’s the English Garden Designer Series paper that makes this card.  There are so many pretty patterns in this paper pack that it was hard to choose.


I chose the small flower pattern because I new my greeting was a bit larger, so I didn’t want them competing, however I think this cute pattern shines on it’s own.

The designer paper has Blushing Bride in it so that is what I used for the base of my card. I highlighted the Melon Mambo by using it on a portion of my greeting… all stamped on our Whisper White cardstock.

Our birthday greeting comes from the hostess stamp set “Happy Birthday Everyone” … one of my favorites. We all need birthday cards and this one is so versatile, and I LOVE the font!


I wanted to add a little bit more to draw your eye directly to the greeting so I punched the upper left hand corners with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch. You will find this punch on page 31 of the Occasions catalog. And while you’re on that page … check out the Iced Rhinestones I used on the card above the cute little banner.

The cute little banner was punched from Blushing Bride with the Banner punch and adhered to the back of the greeting. The entire greeting was popped up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.


All my rhinestones were colored with a Sharpie™ marker. I love that you can just color in the center and leave the outer bling as is. It really does get your attention!


Thank you for taking time out of your Sunday to visit with me.

Enjoy the rest of your day ~




Simply Sunday: You’re the Friend

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have another Simply Sunday card share for you. I chose the Friendly Wishes stamp set and paired it with the beautiful English Garden Designer Series Paper. The outcome was a beautiful card that you would be happy to share with a friend …. a friend everyone wishes they had!


I used our new “Lot’s of Labels” framelits. It frames the verse beautifully and is matted with Early Espresso. I used Blushing Bride and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch … notice how the four petal flower coordinates with the flowers on the designer paper!

I’m introducing the new Metal Rimmed Pearls on this card, I thought that it was the perfect choice for the top. The “friend” was colored in with the writing tip of the marker (not the brush tip). I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso, and if you used the brush tip, you could smear the two colors.


To finish off my card I popped up the greeting and added a scrap piece of the designer paper inside. There really isn’t any scrap … is there!

Thank you for sharing a part of your day with me.

I hope you have a wonderful day … spend it with a friend 🙂




A Happy Hello

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy July!!

Are you looking for pretty cards that are quick and easy to create? Well … I have the answer for you! Join me in the English Garden …

English Garden DSP

English Garden Designer Series paper that is! I don’t know what it is, the watercolor look, the color pallet? I don’t know, but I am drawn to this paper. It is really pretty and will be the focus of today’s card.



You can get 6 pretty cards just from the sheet I used here … what’s really cool is, none of them will look alike. I simply cute my designer paper into 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces, then mount them onto the Soft Suede card stock.

I added banners to this card, however you can use circles, rectangles or any of the fabulous framelits! The greeting comes from the “Tin of Cards” stamp set. I finished off the front of the card with a bow created with the Whisper White Seam Binding.

Inside I used a left over piece of the designer paper and added a touch of the Soft Suede before mounting them onto a piece of Whisper White.


The card maybe simple to make but it has an air of sophistication that any one of your friends would love to receive.

This one is for a special friend who is fighting a battle and I just want to let her know that I’m praying for her and think of her all the time. She has always brought a smile to my face when we get together. Stamping truly brings wonderful people into your life … I’m blessed.

Thank you for spending part of your day with me …

I hope yours is a happy one!
