Just for You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Squeezing in a quick post from my phone (again) as my Charter internet service was down again last night! But as promised …I have another cute card from our “My Hero” stamp set.

I created this one using the “pumpkin” from the stamp set and the wave pattern from the Swirly Scribbles Framelit dies! My color pallet is Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla.


I curled two of the pieces to add some fun dimension to the card … and it reminded me of pumpkin vines. The little spots come from the Swirly Bird stamp set. It just all coordinated so nicely together.

My greeting comes from the “Watercolor Words” stamp set. The bold font of this set fits right in with the whimsical feel of today’s card.

Thanks so much for taking a part of your day to visit my blog, stop back tomorrow to, as I will be sharing another “My Hero” card and some of the fun we had at our Kick Off Party on Monday.

Have yourself a beautiful day !




Better Together with Swirly Bird!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope this Saturday finds you well. It’s a bit warm here in Wisconsin – hitting in the 90’s with some of that fine humidity! It appears summer is right around the corner and I know some of you have been waiting for this!

Speaking of summer, I have a cute card for you that fits right in! Picture a warm summer day sailing across the cool waters …


I created this card with the absolutely “fun to play with” Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlets Bundle! With the 4th of July right around the corner and “blue” such a nautical color – I chose the new “Dapper Denim” and teamed it up with Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.


The greeting and verse used on the card come from the very versatile stamp set, Better Together. I am using this stamp set for both of the cards shown today. You can also see a variety of the words used in this prior post – CLICK HERE to view.


My second card was cased from another demonstrator, but I turned it around and added my won touch. Isn’t that what we all do? The catalog is your first reference for card samples 🙂

On this card I used the swirly from the framelits and the flowers and dots from the stamp set. This card highlights the new “Flirty Flamingo”. I teamed it with Smokey Slate, Whisper White and the elegant Silver Foil.


The silver swirl draws your eye to the greeting “Just a Note” which is anchored with the cute little bow made out of the new “Flirty Flamingo” Ruched Ribbon. The rhinestones really tie the card together with that little touch of bling.


We brought the stamped patterns from the card fronts, and repeated on the inside of the card and on the envelopes! Just ties it all together so nicely.Both of these cards were created for my June Technique Stamping Clubs … we are now done for the year but will be starting up again in September. 


Would you like to join us? I have a few openings in my Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday Morning groups. I will also be starting up a Monday night group and a Saturday afternoon group. 

Stop back tomorrow and I’ll show you more samples and give you a few more details. Till then, have a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by today.
