Saying Goodbye to Old Friends

Hey everyone!

In case you couldn’t make it to my “Get it before it’s gone retiring stamp a stack class” this past week, here are the pics of the completed cards.  We made these 12 cards using my favorite retiring papers and other items.

I am so sad to see these go but I look forward to using the new beautiful papers that are coming out on June 1st.  

I am also really going to miss the doilies that are shown on the 3rd card. I sponged them in sweet sugarplum ink to match the card. 



This first card uses one of favorite retiring stamp sets called Wetlands. I can’t believe it’s leaving. I love all of the stamps in the set, but especially this one. It is so versatile. I combined it with the floral boutique designer paper. 



Vertical Garden Project Kit is Gorgeous!

Hey Everyone!

I love Stampin’ Up’s project kits and the Vertical Garden one is no exception. You can find this kit on pg 22 in the Occasions mini catalog. It includes all of the supplies you need to make this gorgeous project! These kits are so much fun to do with a friend or a group of friends. Everyone can get their own kit and you could have a girl’s night out event and pot luck dinner to make a night of it. Or it would be a great kit to do with your kids. Kids (especially girls)  love doing craft projects like this one.  

Here are the supplies that come in the kit…..

Still Blooming!


Here is another card I made using the Bloom With Hope hostess set from the new Stampin Up catalog. I kind of cheated on the coloring for this one. I stamped the flower in Blackberry Bliss (one of the new In Colors) and then let it sit for about 5 minutes and then took an aquapainter and just used the ink from the outline of the flower and just blended it all around. I didn’t add any ink to it. The pads are pretty juicy so there is enough ink from the lines to blend around. You do need to let it sit for a few minutes though because I tried coloring it right away and it was really dark.  For the center, I just colored it in with the Hello Honey marker.


So Long Happy Watercolor!

This is one of my FAVORITE stamp sets from the Occasions mini catalog. I am so upset it didn’t make it into the new catalog. I love the watercolor wonder  designer paper that goes with the set too. I made this little notepad for one of my stamp club projects and everyone loved it.  Got the notepads from the Dollar Tree (5 in a pack for $1).


Spring Petite Petals

This is another quick and easy card using the Petite Petals stamp set. I used the watercolor designer paper for the back piece, then stamped the stem from another flower set (can’t remember the name of it right now) using pear pizzazz and then stamped the flowers on a separate sheet using cantaloupe and then punched them out. I added the pearls for a little extra bling.



Another Field Flower Card

Here is another card using the Field Flowers set (my favorite). This is one that I did for my technique class using the faux tile technique. Super easy…just score your white piece of cardstock every inch in both directions (I used a 4×5 sheet of cardstock for that piece) , then stamp your image on top …I used wisteria wonder,  eggplant,  and garden green.

One of my convention swaps!


Hey everyone,

I know it has been so long since I have posted. Too much going on here in my personal life (in the process of getting divorced). I am excited to be leaving for Salt Lake City tomorrow though for the Stampin Up convention! I am so happy to get away for a girl's week with all of my stamping friends from all over the country. It is such a blast! Here is one of the swaps I am taking this year. Thanks to a couple of my great downline for helping me make them. I have had so much wonderful support from all of my friends here. This set  (fabulous florets) is from the Summer mini but it is also in the brand new catalog. I used daffodil delight and pacific point for the main colors. I hope you all have a fabulous week. I know I will!


More Fun Flowers!


I LOVE*LOVE*LOVE the fun flowers die that Stampin carries. It is one of my favorite new accessories. You can take any of the designer papers, slap them on a card, put the flower die and some ribbon and you are all set with a gorgeous card. A little sponging on the edges really makes them pop too.  The background paper on this card is called Lap of Luxury. It is on pg 174 in our big catalog.


Here is a close up of the flower. I used some scrap pretty in pink paper that I had already stamped on to punch out the circle. Then I topped that with a pearl. After I finished the card, I gave it a little spritz of shimmer spray. Love that stuff.

Fun Flower with a shimmer

I made this card for my stamp clubs last month. I love the Fun Flower die from the Occasions mini. If you missed out on it, don't worry….it is still available! It is so easy to make a card and use the flower as your focal point.  The background is done with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Then to finish it off, I sprayed it with the frost white smooch shimmer spray. The little curly cue in the middle of the button is done with a thin strip of cardstock and I wrapped it around the file in the distressing kit to make the curly cues.
