In This World


My card today uses the In This World stamp set.  I love this stamp set because it's fun to create a collage style card. 




All supplies and measurements for this card are listed at the end of this post, so scroll down for that info!

I used Crumb Cake ink and several stamps for a tone on tone look for the first panel of my card.  I repeated this with the chair stamp with Flirty Flamingo ink and Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

The focal point of the card is the Very Vanilla cardstock - stamped with the door, and cut apart into smaller pieces, and attached to the Flirty Flamingo panel.  I wrapped Linen Thread around this entire piece, added a small piece of a doily, and attached this to the card front with dimensionals.

To finish the card, I created a small tag - I stamped the key and the word Happiness on a small piece of Very Vanilla cardsdtock - I cut around the curved part of the key to create a rounded edge to the tag.  I created a tassel of linen thread and added two small pearls.

For the inside of my card, I stamped the words, and the chair image.

11 Days Left of Saleabration


 My card today features the bee from the Dragonfly Dreams bundle and also the gorgeous So Detailed Thinlet dies, and Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper. 


All supplies and measurements for this card are listed at the bottom of this post!

I started with a whisper white base, and added a layer of the designer paper.

I used Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and the So Detailed thinlets die - using my Big Shot - and the precision plate - it is a must for these detailed thinlets.

My word stamp is from the So In Love stamp set - as is the shape I stamped it on.  I cut this out by hand -  fussy cutting - we are so spoiled by punches, and thinlets that we don't have to cut often - but this shape was an easy one!

To finish the card, I added a sweet little bee. She was stamped and also fussy cut.





Saleabration is coming to an end!
 Only 11 days left of this year's Saleabration!  There are two saleabration items that are no longer avaialble - the glimmer paper stack, and the tin. All remaining Saleabration items are only available while supplies last! If you have your eye on something - don't delay!

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - Food Challenge

 No automatic alt text available.



 Welcome to our March Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop - this month we are focusing on food! I used the Tasty Trucks stamp set to create my card.





I thought it would be fun to use the truck and create a taco food truck!  I stamped the truck, a row of tacos, and the banners on watercolor paper and after watercoloring them, cut them out.

I used the Festive embossing folder, and embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The banner was created with a piece of the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper - and pulled my colors for my card from this color palate.

The word TACOS along the side of the truck was stamped with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.  

Here's a close up of the taco truck:



Now I wasn't going to share this, but I guess I will! LOL!!!  This was my first attempt at this card - I created a Taco Food Truck - but this one has a giant taco on top!  It is kind of a "Blooper", but oh well - here it is!!!



To create the taco, I used a 1 3/4 inch circle punch - and folded it so the back was a little taller than the front.  I added a red circle for the tomatoes, and some shreds of paper to create the shredded lettuce and shredded cheddar cheese.

I used the Labeler Alphabet  stamp to add "tacos" to the side of the truck - a great way to advertise what they are selling - as if the giant taco on top isn't enough!!!


Which card do you prefer? Would love to hear from you!

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to read about an ordering special I am offering this month! 



Next on our hop is Judy Garza.  Let's check out what she has created!

Iconic Occasions


 There is a super cute stamp set offered just for hosts, in the front of the Occasions Catalog, called Iconic Occasions.  I used this set to create a few cards, which I am sharing in today's post.




 I started out by creating a Baby card - this card is pretty simple -  I used crumb cake card stock, and Melon Mambo ink, a bit of linen thread and that is about it!    After I created this card, I took a closer look at the Iconic Occasions stamp set and realized I could create a lot of cards, using this same layout and with the same colors - so I did!

Here's a Get Well card -  love the little bandaid!




Next, I created a Thinking of You card:




And finally, a Birthday Card:



These cards would be perfect for a little set of All Occasion cards to give to someone!  I didn't use all of the images, or greetings in the stamp set - you could easily create more!!!

Here's a closer look at the stamp set:





As I said, this is only available for hosts - or anyone placing an order of $150 or more.  Saleabration is a GREAT time to host a party - or be your own host, if you have a huge wish list!  Not only would you receive hostess benefits, but you would also get to select a Saleabration product for every $50 you spend!

Thanks for stopping by today!   If you don't have a demonstrator, I would be happy to serve as yours!  Contact me by email if you don't have a copy of our current catalogs, and I will put them in the mail for you!

Thanks for the Smile


My card for today uses the Dragonfly Dreams and the Timeless Textures stamp sets.


 This was a fun card to create - of course, I love the Bee image in the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, and I thought the Hexagon embossing folder would be neat embossed with gold foil paper.


At the bottom of this post I have a complete list of supplies used, as well as the measurements needed to recreate this card.


Here's the inside of my card:  I used some small pieces of the designer paper I used on my card front and added them to the corners -  and then just stamped the greeting.


I am offering a special this month for onlines orders!

Live, Love, Grow Meets Succulent Garden DSP

 My card today uses the Live, Love, Grow stamp set in our Annual Catalog and Idea Book.  I paired it with the Succulent Garden Designer Paper, choosing colors from the paper for my card. 



 I have listed all of the supplies and measurements for this card at the end of this post.

This is a two- step stamp set so it was easy to add color to the succulent stamps. They almost look like they were watercolored! 

The terrarium was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink - I used my paper snips to cut out the inside shape and attached a window sheet behind it.  I attached this over the succulents with dimensionals - it gives the terrarium some depth.



To finish the card, I used some of the Succulent Garden Designer Paper and added a sweet sentiment.  For the inside of the card, I cut a square piece of the designer paper diagonally, and attached to opposite corners.
