Stunning Sparkling Rose Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a lovely … sparkling card to share with you today, and on a budget!  One of my all time favorite framelits is the Rose Garden dies.  You can now find this die set in the Clearance Rack. You don’t want to overlook anything on the clearance rack because it has some awesome deals, and if you missed them before, now is your chance to get them at an extraordinary discount.

I cut the rose out of the Rose glimmer paper and the “pink” inner rose out of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I then covered the entire piece of Blushing Bride with the Tombo Glue and adhered my glimmer paper onto the pink … Now What? You Say.  Have your Dazzling Diamonds handy and dip your rose assmbley into the glitter. Rub gently to secure glitter to your glued area.  Now you have a beautiful two-tone Rose.


The beautiful Rose Glimmer paper is in our annual catalog, plus you will find the stunning Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper in the Clearance Rack as well. Nice!! More color options 🙂  

Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

Thank you for joining me today.

Have a terrific day!

The Rose ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you get a chance to check out all the great buys on the OnLine Extravaganza Sale? Wow … so many great stamp set, bundles and accessories! Having hard time deciding?  Let me help …

One of my favorite bundles from earlier this year was the Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating framelits.  The stamp set is still available to purchase, but the framelits are on SALE!! You can save 30% when you purchase the Rose Framelits during the OnLine Extravaganza.

This beautiful card was created with the framelits and the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper … also on Sale!


I cut the rose out of the glimmer paper and adhered it to Blushing Bride cardstock.  My STAMPIN’ TIP: is to cover the entire piece of cardstock with the Tombo Glue, then place the glimmer paper onto it. Now dip the entire rose into your Dazzling Diamonds … no glue or adhesive sticking out and a beautiful dazzling rose!


I suggest adding both the stamp set and the framelits to your collection.  Here is a card that we made at our 2016 Spring Stamping Retreat.  We embossed the flower in clear onto Shimmery White cardstock and then watercolored the rose with the Aqua Painter and ink refill bottles.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

Thank you for joining me today.

Have a terrific Tuesday!




Guest Stamper: Patti S.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are having a good day.  Sorry for the delay … computer issues last night! Ugh … time to bite the bullet and get a new one!

Today I would like to share with you a beautiful card I received from a wonderful friend as a Thank You for placing an order for her … how sweet is that!

I love when my stampin’ friends send me cards, first … it lets me know they are using the products that they purchase! (I hate to hear when they are still in the bag or in the closet) I use my stamping time as my escape from the harsh realities of life (kind of like that Calgon commercial … some of us will remember) And secondly … because I like to share with everyone how talented you all are with your stamps! Wow 🙂

So today’s card share comes from Patti S.


Patti used the beautiful Rose Wonder Stamp Set and Rose Garden Thinlits …  This is the set you need for life’s major events—birthdays, weddings, sympathy. And for the everyday—thanks, friendship, encouragement. Make a stack to keep on hand and you’ll never be unprepared.


I wanted to show you Patti’s little stampin’ tip … she cut the designer paper on the inside of the card, creating a shadow effect … brilliant! And there’s still plenty of room for you to write your message.


Yes, she hand cut both in designer paper and the section of the front of her card, but as our attendee’s learned at our Spring Stamping Retreat … it really doesn’t take that long and it’s pretty easy to follow that line.

Thank you Patti for sharing your talent and this beautiful card with me, and thank YOU for joining me on my blog today.

It’s a beautiful day here in Wisconsin, hope you all get to enjoy the day, no matter where you are in the world.

Happy Friday ~

Butterfly, Blooms & Birthdays …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share one of the cards that our attendee’s made at our 2016 Annual Spring Retreat. My goal for our projects is to share different ways that you can use your stamp sets and accessories so they create a better value for you.

Today’s card truly demonstrates that goal …


The Bloomin’ Love bundle was one of the stamp sets and accessories that we highlighted at this retreat and we used the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlits Die in a very different way! We used it as a pattern behind our butterfly!

Using the beautiful Wisteria Wonder cardstock for our card front, we cut out our butterfly shape from the Bold Butterfly Framelits, and then tucked the beautiful lace heart behind it.

(Don’t forget what I told you about bundles … current bundles will not be bundled in the upcoming catalog. Save 15% by purchasing your bundles before May 31st) Please use Hostess Code: HEESBTSZ

We embossed our birthday greeting from the stunning Rose Wonder stamp set (also has a bundle)

We also embossed the flowers which come from the Grateful Bunch stamp set (another bundle) and added them to our card. The flowers were attached at different heights by popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


Oh yes we did … we added a strip of the rhinestones to create our butterfly! Each of our flower centers also got a rhinestones! In fact, our attendee’s could add as much as they wanted because they each got a full package of rhinestones included in there projects bag.

So … did we inspire you to become creative with your framelits and thinlits? They are so much fun to play with.

Thank you for stopping by ~

Have a beautiful day!
