Simply Sunday: Guest Stamper … Becky!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am excited today to share with you three beautiful cards that we created by one of my Star’s by Design team members; Becky Salminen. We have a fun contest going on, on our Star’s Facebook page and Becky was gracious enough to share her cards …

All three cards are created with the “Inside the Lines” Designer paper that you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase. The designer paper is teamed up with the “So In Love” bundle.

Becky’s first card was inspired by a card that she found on Pinterest … it used the largest of the three dies.  They are not difficult to make but are stunning to look at… she did a beautiful job.

The second card uses the circle dies and the elegant die from the “So Detailed” Thinlits dies that creates a “belly band”. The greeting comes from the So In Love stamp set which is included in the bundle.  You get both the stamp set and the dies in this bundle, you SAVE 10% and you’re only $2.50 away from the FREE Sale-a-bration item of your choice.

On the last of the three cards, Becky introduces color to her card … the splash of color really makes the card pop, even though they are lovely in Black and White as well.

You can easily create these beautiful samples with the “Falling in Love” bundle and the “Inside the Lines” Designer Series paper… and Becky’s awesome samples.  All three of the greetings Becky used come in the stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by today, I’m sure you have enjoyed Becky’s cards as much as the rest of our Star’s group did.  There’s always room, if you’d like to join us and join in on the fun!  JOIN THE FUN

There is Becky … in the pink and black on the far left side of the our Star’s Group! This was taken at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event held in Madison, Wisconsin.  🙂  We had a lot of fun that day!

Thanks again, and I hope you have a beautiful day ~

So In Love … Happy Anniversary

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the “So In Love” bundle, what did you think? Pretty right!

Well today I’m going to share a simply beautiful card that I created using the “So In Love” bundle. I began with with the largest of the dies and knew I just wanted it to highlight my designer paper.


I knew I was going to use the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so I chose the Very Vanilla cardstock as my base and cardstock to be die cut. I used the Precision Base Plate and die brush to cut and discard of the inner pieces with ease.

Next, I layered my designer paper onto my base, and then my die cut piece onto the designer paper.  I then added my “Happy Anniversary” greeting which I stamped in Crumb Cake on my banner.  I added the pretty little “Falling in Love” embellishment to anchor my banner and create and eye catching effect.


How simple, and how pretty is this.  You could use this card layout with so many of our pretty designer papers, and there are plenty more greetings to use in this stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed … Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have an awesome day!

So In Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick post but it’s packed full of stampin’ tips and samples from the So In Love bundle. We’re going to start with a video …

Carrie, from the training team at Stampin’ Up!, shares some beautiful project ideas and tips for using the So in Love Stamp Set and So Detailed Thinlits Dies from the 2017 occasions catalog.

I also want to share some additional projects that were created with this fabulous bundle …


Here you can see the foliage stamp was used to create the background, then the flower was added to compliment the foliage and add some dimension.  A pretty bow and an banner with the “just for you” greeting completes this card. 

Look at the jar in the background … it was wrapped with one of the delicate bands created from the dies. Below the die cut band was used again to turn this simple bag into a beautiful gift bag.


If you love pretty, delicate items … this is the bundle for you.  I can image all sorts of beautiful cards and gift packages that you could make for Wedding’s, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day … or a special friend.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks so much for checking my blog out today ~

I hope your day is a good one.
