Can’t Get Enough of These Dragonflies

Hey everyone!

I hope you are enjoying a peaceful weekend. Here is one of my favorite new sets that was in the Occasions mini and is also going to be in the NEW CATALOG which goes live this Thursday!!! I can’t wait.

For this card, I used the inspiration from the photo in the mini catalog and my friend Robin. The top piece is from the Cupcakes and Carousels designer paper (retiring). The background is stamped using the speckled stamp from the dragonfly set and also the gorgeous grunge sprinkle stamp (retiring). I then sponged in bermuda bay and so saffron.  

The doily behind the dragonfly is also going out. (sad face). I stamped the dragonfly is crumb cake. It looks a little dark because  I had just reinked the pad. Then I added some wink of stella to the wings (close up of that in the 2nd picture.)

Beautiful You is One of My New Favorites!


If you haven’t seen the new Occasions mini, then you are really missing out. There are so many gorgeous stamp sets in there. The Beautiful You set is one of my favorites. It reminds me of a couple of sets we had about 10 years ago. I think one of them was called Seaside Sketches. I loved them and I love this one.  I am a beach girl born and raised so I love any stamp sets that have a beachy theme to them. This one can be used in so many different ways.

I just did a bundle class with this stamp set. Everyone who came got the stamp set, the new watercolor pencils, a pack of notecards and a free Sale-abration stamp set. We made 4 of each of these cards for a total of 20 cards. Everyone had a great time using the watercolor pencils with blender pens and the aquapainters.  We also used some of the Blooms and Bliss designer paper. You can stamp the images right onto the designer paper and then cut it out to give the woman more dimension.

In the card below I also used the new set High Tide for the water and the seagulls.  That is also one of my favorite new sets. If you haven’t gotten your own copy of the 2 new minis, please email me and I will send them to you or if you are local to the Chesapeake area, you can stop by and pick them up. If you would like to purchase any of these items, just click on the shopping cart in my right sidebar and please use hostess code EJJFGGGH.

Have a great weekend! Happy stamping!



Happy Mother’s Day!

mothers day

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful moms out there! Hope you have a very relaxing day with your families. I made this card using the Love Blossoms designer paper and the chalk talk framelets. The stamps are from the Timeless Texture set. I took a piece of Burlap ribbon about 14 in long and pulled it apart to get the separate strands. I am going to miss that ribbon! The colors are blushing bride, and crumb cake. It is a super easy card and a great way to use up that leftover designer paper. I have several extra packs of them that I need to use up this month. Have a great day. If you would like to order anything, just click on the shopping cart in the right sidebar. 


Botanical Blooms Bundle Comes with the Designer Paper TOO!!!

Hey everyone,

Have you seen the Botanical Blooms Bundle in the Occasions mini? Even if you have, you might not have noticed that it actually comes with 3 items instead of the usual 2. Normally you get the stamp set and matching framelits but in this bundle you also get the matching designer paper for an extra added value! That is a ton of stuff for about $50! 

Stampin Up created a quick video to show several  great ideas that you can do with this bundle so check it out.

I love the gift bag idea the best! What is your favorite? Don’t forget if you are receiving this in an email the video might not work so just go to my blog to view it….just click on the link….have a great day!

Plus, don’t forget, during the month of April, everyone local who places a $50 or more order will get a $5 Grab Bag for Free!! These bags are valued at approx $12-15.  These bags are filled with hand stamped cards, designer paper, ribbon, and lots of other goodies! Some even have stamp sets! To place your order, just click on the shopping cart in the right sidebar! Thanks a bunch!

***If you are not local here in the Tidewater area, I will mail you a set of 4 free handstamped cards in place of the Grab Bag. You will love the cards too! It just costs too much to mail the whole bag of stuff.
