Simply Sunday: Friends …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back today with this simple and beautiful card that you can easily recreate for you friends and family. If you have some larger strips of designer paper, don’t throw it away … use it!  Here is a simple way you can whip up a card…


I began with my designer paper; the Falling in Love designer paper and because I wanted to highlight the designer paper, I teamed it up with the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I also added a touch of the new Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack you can get for FREE from your Sale-a-bration purchase.

If your not into glimmer paper, I thought I would add a touch of lace which comes from the Delicate Details stamp set that is also a Sale-a-bration item and stamped in with Sweet Sugarplum which coordinates with the designer paper and the glimmer paper.

Our greeting comes from the Special Reason stamp set … and cut out from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies from the bundle.


Sweet -n- Simple … that’s how we like our cards!  Thank you for visiting me this Sunday. Hope to see you back tomorrow with another card share.

Have a wonderful day !

Wonderful Friend …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card to share with you that has the beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series Paper.  This papers design also has the “Bokeh” look and I’m teaming it up with the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle …


My card has the designer paper blocked matted with a piece of Pear Pizzazz and our medium sized dragonfly nestled right in the center! I cut the dragonfly out of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and let the sparkles help highlight that beautiful paper.

I mounted that directly onto a piece of Blushing Bride after stamping it it with my greeting. I was thinking of a friend when I made this card, she loves dragonflies   This piece was then popped up with our Stampin’ dimensions and placed on a Pear Pizzazz base.


Not all cards have to be layered with stuff, sometimes it’s all in the message … To a Wonderful friend.

Did you know… that if you purchase the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper – You will qualify for an Exclusive Sale-a-bration item and a Virtual Rewards Point from me!

I have another card to share with you tomorrow that also highlights the “Dragonfly Dreams” stamp set and a NEW product & technique.

Thank you for checking in on me today and can’t wait to see you tomorrow.

Have yourself a terrific Tuesday!

Simply Sunday: That’s the Tag

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a simple and easy cards for you that delights the eyes with our beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper. The possibilities are endless when you teams this designer paper with the “That’s the Tag” Bundle!

On the first card I chose the “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper that had the delicate flower pattern. The color is Sahara Sand so I used Very Vanilla as my base and my tag.  I stamped the tag with the oval dot pattern and the thanks from the “That’s the Tag” stamp set from the bundle of the same name.


I then added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishments from the Falling in Love suite. I placed them to align with the pattern on the paper and to anchor the greeting. Simple!


My next card, I again used the “Falling in Love” Designer Series paper but chose the “Bokeh” style paper. Bokeh, which is pronounced bow-kay or bow-keh, refers to the wonderful out-of-focus light and shapes. The color pallet on my card is Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.


On our first card we used the simple oval tag for our greeting, on this card we stepped it up with the pretty flower die cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  Oh so pretty!

Again, the greeting comes from the bundle and I created a simple banner and then backed it with a touch of the glimmer paper to make the greeting pop.


Simple cards to make but dramatic in texture and design. I hope you enjoyed today’s cards … I will be back with more of the items we used today.  You can see a list below.

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

Have a wonderful day ~
