Sunflowers for Support

The news is full of the devastation hitting Ukraine right now, and my heart breaks for everyone affected.

I CASEd the oh-so-talented Alanna Wharf to create this gorgeous card. As a bonus, the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and coordinating dies are available as a bundle again until the end of March and are an additional 10% off!

Happy Easter!

 I created a fun Easter card to send to my sisters and mom this year using the Arrange A Wreath bundle. I cut one layer of the wreath with Purple Posy and another layer with Pear Pizzazz and also stamped various eggs using Pool Party, Highland Heather, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, and Petal Pink. I'm going to miss this bundle! It is retiring soon and is a must to add to your collection in my opinion! It has images and sentiments to cover many holidays including Easter, Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Go to my online store ASAP and add it to your collection before it is gone forever!!

Stamps: Arrange A Wreath
Ink: Basic Gray, Highland Heather, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Petal Pink, Pool Party
Paper: Basic White, Pear Pizzazz, Highland Heather, Purple Posy
Other: Wreath Builder Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon

The Last Chance List was released a few days ago, and things are selling out fast!  Click here to be taken to my online store to see all the items retiring. Many are discounted up to 60%! Don't delay....many items have already sold out. 

I  hope you are having a restful Easter weekend....stay safe everyone!

A Touch of Ink

Some people prefer cards that area simple and serene, others love colour and vibrancy. Sometimes it just depends on your mood. By changing the colour of your card base, you can get a much different look for the same card. Here I have inked up the Sale-A-Bration free stamp set, A Touch of Ink with Memento Black and then stamped the "fill in" images with Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, and Coastal Cabana for the hummingbird. This photopolymer stamp set is easy to use and creates gorgeous cards with a slight watercolour appearance. The fill-in images do not line up exactly and that adds to the overall whimsical and watercolour effect.

Stamps: A Touch of Ink
Ink: Memento Black, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Thick Whisper White
Other: Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones, Multipurpose Glue

I always prefer colour, but I know not everyone does! Which one is your favorite?  The card on the left is layered on a Melon Mambo card base, the one on the right Thick Whisper White (still using up some old stockpile vs. Basic White!). A thin layer of Basic Black cut at 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" really sets off the black outline images on the white panel which was cut at 3.75" x 5". The hummingbird was cut out by hand and popped up on some Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Don't forget the inside of your card!!

Lots of Heart for Valentines

Hi everyone! Have you seen the Lots of Heart bundle on page 15 of the January-June Mini Catalogue? It's great for creating Valentines, baby cards, and sending some "just because" love! I love a set that isn't just for one occasion, and those dies......swoon! I created this beauty by cutting a heart out of the free Sale-A-Bration paper, Oh So Ombre, and also cut out a vellum heart. The strip of Rococo Rose was cut just wide enough to use the fun X's and O's die. I ran my Blushing Bride layer through the Scripty 3D embossing folder before layering it on a Rococo Rose card base. What do you think? I hope you like it!! 

Stamps: Lots of Heart
Ink: Rococo Rose
Paper: Oh So Ombre, Blushing Bride, Basic White, Rococo Rose, Vellum
Other: Many Hearts Dies, Scripty 3D embossing folder, Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, dimensionals, multipurpose glue, Tailored Tag punch (to flag ends of sentiment strip)

There's just a couple weeks left to claim your Sale-A-Bration freebies! I used a 2.5 x 6" piece of the Oh So Ombre paper on my envelope flap - my goal for 2021 is to use up my DSP, and this is a perfect way to make your happy mail more special! With a $60 purchase (before shipping and tax) you can get the 6x6" DSP stack of Oh So Ombre paper as well! Go to and click "Shop Now." Please use this month's host code if your order is under $200! 

Happy Valentine's Day my Stampin' friends!
