The Humming Along Cling Bundle has an amazingly beautiful flower in it so today’s card features it!

That amazing flower was coloured with the Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends combo to make it pop!  The matching Hummingbird Framelits Dies are the perfect accessory to cut out that bright flower and the perfect label for the sentiment!

It all looks great with the Lemon Lime Twist card base and the new Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper!  You must check this package out – it has so many beautiful designs to use on your projects!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping to you!


Today I’m showing off two great cling stamp sets from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  Presenting…….Lovely Lattice and Part of My Story!

Isn’t it just so beautiful?  I see many opportunities with this stamp set – you can make that spray of flowers any colour that you want! I choose to use the colours that The Paper Players challenged us to use, Grapefruit Grove, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  The fourth colour I choose is Mint Macaron for the leaves!

The greeting is from the Part of My Story stamp set and I did some “masking” to get just the word – friend.

TIP:  I use scotch tape to cover up the part of the stamp that I don’t want to show.  Just ink it up, remove the tape and then stamp your preferred word!

Here’s the list of products I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!


When I first saw the Geared Up Garage cling bundle I just had to have it.  What better stamp set to create with for the guys in my life!  My husband and eldest grandson both drag race so it was the perfect choice for cards for them!

My grandson’s birthday is next week so guess where this one is going, lol!

The matching Classic Garage 6″ x6″ designer series paper adds just the right touch too!  This bundle and matching accessories will be a focus of an upcoming Card Class, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here’s the list of products that I used.

Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  Today’s card is a study in Monochromatic using the beautiful Highland Heather colour from Stampin’ Up!

Of course, I started with a card base of Highland Heather cardstock! Then I added that beautiful piece of Botanical Butterfly designer paper that is Free(with qualifying purchase) from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

The butterflies themselves were stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock with Jet Black Stazon in and then overstamped with Highland Heather ink.  I used an Aqua Painter to lighten the colour on the wings to give it a little contrast.  This is just one of the cards we will be creating in the Butterfly Gala card class on Tuesday, January 15, 2019.  Have you signed up yet?  Visit my Class Calendar to save your seat.

Have a fun Stamping day!


Hello from the new Fable Friends Cling stamp set.  This set is full of really cute critters and I picked the little squirrel image to bring greetings to you today!

There’s nothing like bright spring colours to brighten the mood is there?  This little squirrel and his sweet daisy was just too cute to resist and he played in well with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches!

This Fable Friends stamp set is just one of the new Cling stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has introduced.  They are great – they cling nicely to the clear blocks (no falling off at the crucial moment).  I know that you’re going to love using them.  Enjoy this video below which shows you just how they work.

It’s a hummingbird kind of day here today.  Not literally as we have a couple of feet of snow but the hummingbirds rest in our hearts and minds!

Whenever new products arrive from Stampin’ Up!, I go to the catalogue for inspiration and that’s what I did with this card.  You will find the original on page 36 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

It was a sunny day when I made this card so it was a pleasure to colour this little beauty and imagine seeing the humming birds arrive this summer!

I used quite a few supplies to create this card, so here is the list for you.

Hello there!  The days are counting down to Christmas but I decided to feature this one red rose that’s destined for someone over this holidays.

I love the drama of the black and silver backgrounds – they highlight that rose perfectly!  It’s a simple layout compliments CAS(E) this sketch!  Check it out.

The silver glimmer lattice was sitting on my crafting table from a previous project, so I used it as a lovely angled background.  Love it!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Hi and welcome!  Today I have another birthday card to show – another in the family line-up of December birthdays!

This one is for our nephew and I thought that the wood textures designer paper was a great backdrop for the greeting and small spray of leaves.  They were stamped first with Soft Suede ink and then I added some Old Olive ink with a small piece of sponge just to add a little colour!

The inside explains the “why” of It’s Your Day with a birthday greeting from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.

CAS(E) this sketch provided the card layout which made it easy to put this whole idea together!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Stamping to you!


Hi and welcome to Cynthia’s Creative Corner!  December is a busy month not only because of Christmas but our family has quite a few birthdays happening as well!

Today’s card is a simple birthday wish for my husband!  He has blue eyes and looks great in blue, so I used that colour as the focal point!

Freshly Made Sketches posted a simple layout so it was easy to  follow along with it.

The Sunshine Sayings stamp set has some great sentiments and it was easy to choose the ones I wanted to use.  The hearts come from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies!

Here’s the list of everything I used.

Even though it is not officially winter yet – this pretty display of flowers bring a little brightness to our “unofficial” winter!

Sometimes one needs a special card to send during the Christmas season and I feel that this one will bring exactly the right amount of brightness to the recipient!

I started by using the new Freshly Made Sketches layout,

and went from there.  Those lovely flowers were coloured with our fabulous Stampin’ Blends, love them!
