Lovely & Lacy and Sweet Essentials stamp sets

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Sometimes we need to make a card, but are short on stamping time. I think this card will fill the bill! Not only is it cute, but there is minimal stamping involved. I originally thought I would make it with the Stampin' Up! A Round Array set. Then I saw this Lovely & Lacy set and realized I have never used it, so this card was created. . .minimal stamping, clean and simple lines, and  from start to finish very quick to make.   I hope you might consider this card when you are pressed for time and need something handmade.    Happy Stampin!

This card was designed by my mother, Edna, I really like how she has combined three different Stampin' Up! stamp sets to make this spectacular card.  I do so enjoy watching her creative process. She just keeps pulling out framelits, punches, rhinestones, a variety of stamp sets and designer papers, then adds and subtract various elements until she is pleased with the overall look. I am pleased to include her as a guest designer for my blog. I am sure she will be contributing more soon.   Happy Stampin!

Best of Flowers and Papaya Collage Stamp Sets with Sneak Peek of 2013-2015 In Colors

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I think the new Best of 25 Years Stamps are such a great idea. As part of Stampin' Up!'s 25-year anniversary they are bringing back some of the favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets. They will be released - one set per month - during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen-image! As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, a collector's card and a 25-year proof of purchase sticker is included with every Best of set. When you collect six stickers you will be eligible for a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95.

I made this card using the March 2013 Best of Flowers set. I've also used several of the new colors and the Gingham Garden DSP. I am happy to say that only seven days remain until the new catalog is live and we can order from it.  Happy Stampin!

Here is another card inspired by Linda Heller of Stamping School. I think the combination of Night of Navy and Pear Pizzazz is so sharp.

Secret Garden and Stained Glass Technique

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Here is another fun card using the Secret Garden stamp set and the Stained Glass Technique. First, rub an embossing buddy over vellum -- this will help keep embossing powder where it belongs -- on the stamped image.  Next, stamp your image on vellum with a VersaMark Pad, cover with white embossing powder, and heat emboss. Flip the vellum over and color the back of the image with markers.  Let the images dry and adhere them to your card. So easy and such a great look!   Happy Stampin!
