Watercolor card featuring Santa's Sleigh from Stampin' Up!

Welcome, Stampers  :)

Check out this quick and cute watercolored Christmas card featuring the Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!


Stampin' Up! colors I used:



Santa's Sleigh is such a fantastic stamp set, especially when you add the matching Framelits.  Oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless!   You will absolutely want to add this bundle to your stamp collection.

Stamping the tree to the inside card, adds just the right touch of interest.

I used an aqua painter to watercolor the reindeer with Tip Top Taupe ink; I used Smoky Slate ink for the shadow beneath the reindeer.  I hope you will try this and discover for yourself just how easy it is to watercolor.

Snowman Card featuring the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!

Welcome, Stampers  :)

Woohoo!!  The Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog is now available and I have LOTS of new stamps and accessories to share!

Today, I am using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits dies from the Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the new Fancy Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper from the new Holiday Catalog.

I added a second snowman to the inside of my card.  Don't you just love the sparkly Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

I sponged the Fancy Frost Designer Speciality Designer Series Paper with Night of Navy ink.  By applying more ink to the top of the DSP and gradually added less and less ink as you move down the paper, you will be able to achieve the ombre look.   Love it!!

Seaside Shore Window Birthday Card

Hi, Stampers  :)

Looking for an unusual card for that fish loving guy of yours?  Well, I think this window sheet card using the Seaside Shore stamp set from Stampin' Up! is perfect.  Love how the fish appear to swim across your card!


Stampin' Up! colors I used:


Check out this fun new Seaside Shore stamp set from Stampin' Up!  Got a sailor, fisherman or women, or an aquarium enthusiast in your family?  This set is perfect!

I put a piece of thick Whisper White card stock in my trimmer and removed a 1/2" piece, then I removed an additional 1-1/4" piece.  The 1-1/4' space will form the window and the 1/2" piece will adhere to the window sheet to create the full sized card.


I sponged the inside with Pool Party and Crumb Cake.  After sponging, I stamped the seaweed with Mint Macaron and Wild Wasabi, and the starfish with Calypso Coral, to create a background for the fish.


This is a fun, easy technique, that helps to create a unique card.  I do hope you will give it a try.

It's Masculine Monday - One Wild Ride Card

Welcome, Stampers  :)

Well, I am home from vacation and ready to start posting again.  Enjoy

I created this card using the new One Wild Ride stamp set from Stampin' Up!  What a fabulous stamp set for those of us with immediate and extended families that love their motorcycles.

It is so tempting to call this a masculine set, but I know many women that also love their bikes!  So, to all motorcycle lovers out there; you NEED this!

I love the shine of the Silver Foil Sheet!  It looks just like the chrome on my brother's Harley.

Check out the "man glitter."  Oh, the wonders of the Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush!!  So little effort, with such great results.  Love it!!


Looking for a few more ideas for One Wild Ride?  Check out the cards I found on Pinterest.

Double-Time stamping with the Swirly Bird stamp set

Welcome, Stampers  :)

Still very excited about my new stamp set!  Loving the Swirly Bird stamp set.  Imagine all  the possibilities . . .


Stampin' Up! colors that I used:



Just a couple more days, and you too can own this fun, new, Swirly Bird stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I thought it would be fun to use the Triple-Time stamping technique, but change it up a bit.  First, I only used two layers, so I am calling this Double-Time stamping.  Finally, instead of making the card layers straight, I rotated them to add some additional interest.

Check out the inside!  I masked off  the upper portion of the card with 3-M Post-it-Note tape, then stamped the swirly image to the card.  Love the interest it adds!  So very easy, yet it really adds some punch!!

It's Masculine Monday - Swirly Bird Father's Day Card

Welcome, Stampers  :)

Woohoo, new stamps in the house!!  I couldn't wait to use the new Swirly Bird bundle to make a nautical Father's Day card.

When you purchase the Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits as a bundle, you will save 10%!   What a great deal!!   Think of all the amazing cards you can make with this set and die.

I used the new 2016-2018 In Color ink pad; Dapper Denim to create my background paper.  Oh, my gosh, I am in LOVE with this new color!!

I cut a strip to mount on the Real Red cardstock.  I sponged the remaining piece, to help add movement and depth to the "waves."   Amazing what a little sponging can do.

To add a little interest and an additional pop of pizzazz I stamped the sailboat on the inside of my card.  Takes such a small amount of time to do this, but it makes the inside of your cards pop.

Next time you're stamping, don't forget, the inside is just as important at the front, and your recipient will notice and appreciate it!!

It's Masculine Monday - Pop of Paradise Birthday Card

Hi, Stampers!   :)

Don't you just love a bright and cheery card?  This really makes me think of summers in Southern California and the many, many palm trees.

The Pop of Paradise stamp set, the Emerald Envy cardstock, and Emerald Envy ink are NEW Stampin' Up! products.

They will be available for purchase on June 1, 2016, when the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! annual catalog begins.


I wanted a background paper that went with the warm summer theme.  But, I couldn't find one that fit the bill.  Therefore, I created my own using the pineapple stamp, versamark ink, and gold embossing powder. Love how it looks!

The inside is quite simple, just stamped the pineapple and let it go at that.

It's Masculine Monday - Something Unexpected with Framelits

 Hi, Stampers   :)

For this Father's Day card I wanted to do something a little unexpected with my Lots of Labels Framelits dies and Guy Greetings stamp set from Stampin' Up!


Colors I used:



I saw this technique on YouTube some time ago and knew that it would be perfect for today's card.   Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate the video again, so I cannot give her/him credit.  If this is your amazingly creative idea, thank you so much for sharing!!!

As I explain in my video, when aligning your die with the stamped image, be sure that the inside edges of the die touch the outside edge of your image.

You can see in picture #3 above that the top line intersects with his chest and the bottom line with his shoe.  This step is vital!  If the lines do not meet the image, the finished product will not turn out.


The rest is quite easy. Make your scissor cuts, insert your die, run through the Big Shot machine and fussy cut the stamped image.  So easy, yet looks so intricate.



Isn't this awesome!!  Think of all the possibilities. . .

You have learned a new technique. 
I hope you will make one and let me know how it turns out.
I look forward to hearing from you!
