Thinking of Spring …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today’s card share was created to inspire “spring” to begin!  I think most of our 50 states are ready, the East coast has been hit exceptionally hard this year.  For those of you in Arizona who are basking in the warm sunshine … we are jealous.

Enough with the weather report … and onto the card.  I made this mainly out of punches, except for a little greeting and stamping a bit of an accent.  I wanted the flowers to be the focal point.


The flowers were punched with our “Pansy” punch.  I embossed the yellow using the “Decorative Dots” embossing folder (FREE Sale-a-bration item) and then punched them with the 3/4″ Circle Punch.  It adds some fun dimension to the flowers.

The stem was punched from the “Bird Builder” punch … some leaves were trimmed off, and then added onto the stem to complete the look.  It’s best to do this type of work directly on the “Silicone Craft Sheet” … I always use that when I am using my Snail adhesive on a punched images so small.  Keeps the adhesive off your work area (No more sticky mess).

I used the dot strip from the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set (also comes in a bundle with the Banner framelits) and the greeting comes from a new stamp set, Peaceful Petals.


Can you guess what colors I used to create this card?  Let’s see how many correct guesses we can get.

I hope you enjoyed today’s whimsical card … I thought the flowers looked like they were dancing on a warm summer day!  (Wish I was there) lol

Have a Super Sunday!

Extending the fun … Technique!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Hope you enjoyed your weekend… yesterday was filled with sunshine!  Just what our endorphins needed.

Today I would like to share with you a project that I did with my Technique Clubs this month.  They learned a sweet tip on how to extend the card length when using the Thinlit Dies.

I will also share two different Designer Series Paper and how they can change the look of a card.  My first card was done with the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper – a FREE product that can get with a Sale-a-bration purchase of $50 or more.  (Sale-a-bration begins January 28th).  Now that’s YUMMY!


I love how the “Needlepoint Border” folder matches the designer paper.  I highlighted the stitching by dragging the “White Stampin’ Chalk Marker” over the top of it.  It really completes the card.

I used “Crisp Cantaloupe” cardstock, but the photo is making it look a bit “pinky” …. sorry!

Stampin’ Tip to Extend Card Length …


Slide cardstock underneath the circle area of the die – leaving the other side of cardstock “above” the die (See Photo)


When you have the cardstock over the top of the die, it will not cut… however, it leaves a nice score line for you to fold the extended card over.  It will fit into the envelope perfectly.

Here is a shot of both of the cards.  I promised the ladies I would post them both because some classes used the “Sweet Sorbet” and the other class used the “Watercolor Wonder”.  Both look amazing, but still very different.


I think you could put the “Watercolor Wonder” Designer Series Paper on any card and make it look good.  Here I just replaced the Basic Black punched circle with the “Tangerine Tango” … a suggestion from Richella.  I love the way it looks!  Thanks for the help Richella!

You will find the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper along with the “Perfect Pennants” Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog.  I have listed supplies to create the cards at the bottom of the blog.


I hope you can now extended the fun on your cards by using this little stampin’ tip.  It gives you much more room to write (or stamp on)!

Have a great day!

You Make Me Happy …

Hello My Stampin’ Friends,

How are you on this fine day?  I hope you doing well.

Last night I had one of my Stampin’ Technique Club meetings and we had a blast.  Lot’s of silliness and laughter, it was at times hard to stamp!  We blamed it on the full moon.

Today’s card share goes out to all my Stampin’ Friends … because you make me so happy! I really love my job as a demonstrator!

The card is cute and simple, and is a snap to make.

I paired up the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and Banners Framelit Dies.  Now add that to the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note cards and making this card is easy-peasy!

I picked the “polka-dot” card … there are 5 designs to choose from, because it just looked fun!  Who doesn’t love Polka-Dots?

I began by stamping my greeting in Smokey Slate and cut it out with the Banner Framelit.  Then I added another banner in Tangerine Tango – I chose the tangerine because it coordinates with the color on the card, and it draws the eye right to the greeting.

I simply finished off my card by adding a sweet bow with the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.

The Watercolor Wonder Designer Note cards also come with envelopes, so you are ready to send out your card.

You & Me …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Happy Friday!  Today’s card share is day 2 of the “Weekly Deals” showcase.  I also wanted to share with you some of the “new” by introducing you to the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set which is found in the “just released” Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set has a coordinating framelit die … Click this link to see bundle!

Here are the weekly deals I’ll be using today …

Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies
Item # 129021
Regular Price: $26.95
Discounted Price: $20.21

Silver Glimmer Paper Item #124005
Regular Price: $4.95
Discounted Price: $3.71

Fancy Fan Textured Embossing Folder
Item # 127751

Discounted Price: $5.96

Regals Core’dinations Item # 129955
Regular Price: $23.95
Discounted Price: $17.96

Combining these 4 items was really easy and fun!  I began with the Regals Core’dinations paper … Cherry Cobbler of course, and embossed it with the “Fancy Fan Embossing Folder”.   Then I sanded the Cherry Cobbler Core’dinations paper to give it that two-tone look.


I knew I wanted to incorporate a new stamp set for you, so I chose the “Perfect Pennants” stamp set. Since it’s been soooo cold outside, I thought it was time to heat things up with another Valentine’s card … or Anniversary card, and chose the “You & Me” greeting.  I stamped it with Black StazOn and then stamped the heart (from the stamp set) in Pink Pirouette.

Next I used the “Window Frames Collection Dies” to cut out the greeting.  And what else would I mat this with … why the Silver Glimmer paper of course!  I then topped it off with 3 small hearts punched out of the Silver Glimmer paper.


I then added a simple ribbon bow to tie it all together.  To finish off the card … I punched a single heart on the inside.

Hope you enjoyed today’s “Weekly Deals” showcase.  I find it challenging and fun to create a card using specific items!  Sometimes a card idea pops in your head from other images, and sometimes it’s comes together by choosing a few of your favorite things.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
