Made with Love …

Hello my Stampin’ Friends & a Happy Valentine’s Day to you.

First, let me say thank you for all the “get well” wishes I received yesterday … you are all awesome.  Feeling much better today.

I could help but piggy-back on yesterday’s layout for today’s card share.  I said you could make those cute cards in any color you want, truth is … you can change the punch (or framelits) too!


I followed the same layout, used the same stamp set, and stayed with the same dimensions … I only changed the cardstock to the beautiful “Red Glimmer” paper and the “Hearts Collection” framelits.  That’s it … I’ll have to call today’s blog “Fast Friday”!  LOL

I do have to say one thing … I found using the framelits a bit easier than the punches – only because you can line the framelits up on the “Magnetic Plateform” and center them.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope to see you tomorrow.  I promise, no more hearts.  Well, for a little while anyway.

Have a great weekend ~

Just Sayin’… Two-day is Special

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have something special for you … two card shares and a treat.  Why you ask?  Well, today is my 200th blog post!  I am really excited to have shared my passion of stampin’, some of my travels, and even a bit of my home life & family with you.

Yesterday I shared a few of my favorite things from the new Occasions Catalog, and told you that I would create a cute card for you with the Just Sayin’ bundle.   In honor of my 200th post, I didn’t bake a cake, but I have BLOG CANDY!  Keep reading …

The first is with the beautiful “Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper” …


The card is sweet and simple to make.  I used two different patterns from the “Watercolor Wonder” designer paper.  The patterns coordinates perfectly so it’s easy to pick 2 to pair up.  Then, I simply stamped the “miss you already” greeting from the Just Sayin’ stamp set in Tangerine Tango, and cut it out with the coordinating “Word Bubble” framelits.

Ahh yes, and I must not forget the beautiful “Organza Ribbon“.  I keep at least 2 rolls on hand at all times because it works so nicely on a number of different styles of cards.

So, how are you liking the Just Sayin’ stamp set so far?  And how about the coordinating framelits?  No cutting … I love that!

OK … on to the next card.  With Valentine’s Day coming up, I just wanted to say “Love Ya”!


Oh my, it appears as if I have another “SNEAK PEEK” … this time it comes from the upcoming Sale-a-Bration Catalog!  The texture you see on the card comes from the “Decorative Dots” Embossing folder in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  (I am currently booking “stampin’ parties” if you’d like to get you folder and more for free… contact me).

Once I textured the cardstock for the card and coordinating envelope, I used the “Hearts Collection Framelits” to create the focal point of the card – the hearts.

I wanted to add a bit of “zing” to the card, so instead of leaving the background of the heart plain, I simply dabbed my “Versamark” onto the white cardstock, then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder and our spiffy new heat gun.  Did you know it has two temperature settings?  One is for drying … the other is for embossing!

What better greeting from the Just Sayin’ stamp set goes better with hearts than “Love Ya”.  I used Cherry Cobbler for both the ink and cardstock.  I then finished it off with a cute little bow made with the Silver Ribbon.

Both of the cards have coordinating envelopes.  These were created with the use of the “Envelope Liner Framelits“.  I think it adds such a nice touch when sending your hand stamped cards.

OK … Now how do you like this dynamic duo – the Just Sayin’ Bundle?  Well, I love them.  In fact, I love the stamp set so much (and because we’re celebrating my 200th post) I’m giving away a “Just Sayin’ Clear Stamp Set“!!  That’s right … BLOG CANDY!


All you have to do is comment on what “you” think about this duo!  One name will be randomly chosen on Monday night at midnight (central time) … and then I’ll post the winner on Tuesday.  You will have 24 hrs to send me your contact information ( so I can get your stamp set out to you!  Good Luck … and thanks for following my blog!

Thanks for stopping by today!
