Simply Sunday: Designer Paper Highlight

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share 3 simple cards that will highlight the Designer Series paper that are currently on Sale … Buy 3 / Get one FREE. Monday Oct.31st is the last day to get in on this deal.


Because they all have simple layouts, I will not go into detail on the cards… Let’s get you back to your weekend!

My first card is a “Congratulations” card which highlights two patterns from the “By the Shore” Designer paper.  The greeting comes from the “Guy Greetings” stamp set. The Dapper Denim banner under the greeting is actually a piece of the designer paper!



The simply beautiful sympathy card was created with the “Floral Boutique” Designer paper. One simple sheet of designer paper and a greeting goes a long way. It’s quick and can be either cute or elegant, depending on the paper pattern you choose.



My last card is bright and colorful and highlights 3 patterns from the “Fruit Stand” Designer paper. I used my Circle Framelits to cut out my greeting and pop it up.  I also cut the cute little flower from the designer paper and popped it up by the greeting. Something so simple really draws the eye to the focal point of the card.


I hope you enjoyed today’s card share. If you did … PLEASE click like on the bottom of the blog or feel free to leave a comment. It helps me when creating for you in the future.

Thanks and have a wonderful day ~

Simply Sunday: Flourishing Phrases Hello

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Welcome to another Simply Sunday card share …

Today’s card is yet another beautiful sample from the “Flourishing Phrases” stamp set. As you have seen the past few days, this stamp set and coordinating thinlit dies are very versatile.

My color pallet today is Island Indigo and Whisper White.  I created the background by simply stamping the leaves in Island Indigo onto Island Indigo.


The large flower really commands your attention on this card, was also stamped in Island Indigo and then popped up using our Stampin’ Dimensionals. A simple bow at the bottom completes the card.

Simply Beautiful Flourishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you my Alternative Paper Pumpkin project and I used the beautiful “Flourish” Framelits with it. Today I’d like to share a card that highlights the “Flourishing Phrases” stamp set that coordinates with the Framelits.


The color pallet for today’s card is a simple Night of Navy and Whisper White, and works well with the “Floral Boutique” Designer Series Paper which we used on the bottom half of our card.

The floral stamp as I said comes from the “Flourishing Phrases” and was stamped in Night of Navy and matted with Night of Navy … this was popped up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cute little “Hello” comes from the “Jar of Love” stamp set and cut out using the “Layering Ovals” framelits.


It really is a simple card to create but beautiful … you can even change up the look of the card, just by changing the greeting!  Try it, it’s amazing what a simple font change will do to a card.

Don’t forget to stamp the inside of your card and your envelope. It looks so cool when everything matches.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.

Have a wonderful weekend ~






Tomorrow is not promised …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So … what did you think of the video? I know, a new plate. Once I get mine, I will compare all of the options we have and share what I think works best.

I also told you I would be sharing a card that I would create using the “Flourishing Phrases” and the “Flourish Thinlits” Bundle. It is with deep sorrow that I share this card because I created it for my friends who just lost their only son this weekend. My heart breaks for them … I can’t even imagine.

I used the new “Dapper Denim” and teamed it up the Garden Green … they look really nice together. The Whisper White for the base and the greeting really makes the card pop.


I ran an extra piece of Dapper Denim & the flower die through the BigShot and then used Crystal Effects on the flower and buds to highlight them.  I’m sorry, I forgot Stampin’ Up! took it out of the catalog. You could use the “Wink of Stella” … that would look really nice and tie in the white even better!

I stamped the background Dapper Denim on Dapper Denim … I think color on color creates magic!

I must admit, I’m having a difficult time writing my blog today. My thoughts are elsewhere. Please send a prayer to my friends Karen and Andy that the good Lord wrap them in his arms and help ease their pain during this difficult time. Thank you so much

If you have any questions about today’s card / post … please comment below and I will get back to you. Again, thank you.

Enjoy today and everyday ~


Today’s Product Highlights …





Simply Sunday: Congratulations

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

We have now entered that time of year when “Congratulations” cards are a hot commodity! Graduations, anniversaries, weddings … even job promotions … these are all events that we need cards for so today I’d like to help you out by sharing a simple yet pretty card for such an occasion.


I chose Black & Gold because it can be used for any of the occasions I mentioned and it’s super simple to make. I’m using the new “Pop of Pink” Designer Washi Tape and the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Words are powerful. This set has the words you need for all occasions: thank you, congratulations, thinking of love, love you. Lift up your friends, send good thoughts to your family. I love this set!!

You will also need Whisper White, Basic Black cardstocks and our Gold Foil Sheets, plus one little scrap piece of vellum for the Bitty Butterfly!


I added the new “”Metallic Enamel Shapes” for the body of my butterfly and to finish off the rest of the card. They are cute and really match up nicely with the foil sheets. (Both come in Silver and Gold)

Don’t you think this makes a great “Congratulations” card … and so simple! A little Washi Tape, a little stamping, punch a couple butterflies and your done.

Now … Yesterday I promised to share a few other cards that we have done in our stamping clubs.



Our clubs meet 1 day a month. Each group has a minimum of 6 and a max of 10 participants.

There is no cost for your projects, however each participant is required to spend a certain amount each month … that amount depends on the amount of people. This is done so each of our participants gets to take a turn “hosting” … this only means “YOU” get the hostess benefits (free stamps and / or accessories). 


It is a commitment that you make to participate for the entire “club year” … 10 months. It goes by so fast, it’s kind of sad when we break for summer! So let me know if your thinking about joining us this fall.  Seats fill up fast!

Thank you for sharing a piece of your Sunday with me.

I hope you have a wonderful day ~
