Hi there!  Today I’m showing of a simple and pretty card created with the Varied Vases Bundle.  I love the matching Vases Builder Punch, it makes cutting out those tiny vases so very easy!

Of course I had to use the Stamparatus for the placement of the greeting a “squiggly” line under it.

The inspiration for this simply the best card came from the sketch posed by CAS(E) this sketch.  Of course, one could add a lot more details, but I like the simplicity of this card.

Here’s the list of products that I used.  You can click on any picture to go directly to my Online Store to stock up.



Have a fabulous Tuesday and Happy Stamping to you!


Pretty vases in a row – today’s card highlights the Varied Vases bundle with this pretty lineup.

I needed a little inspiration so turned to our beautiful Annual Catalogue, page 45!  This card was “CASED” copy and share everything, from the bottom right of the page.  The matching punch made cutting out the stand-out vase easy!

Now I have the perfect card to send as a birthday greeting or a “just because”!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

So, if you are ever needing some inspiration – look to the Annual Catalogue – it has great ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Happy Stamping!


I’m so excited to show you this Wishing You card created with the Blended Seasons bundle today.

This bundle is so very suitable for all occasions and seasons of the year so today’s card shows off the softness of the flowers at this time of the year!

The Paper Players sketch was the perfect inspiration to use those lovely label framelits in the bundle and to use our Stampin’ Blends as well.

I accented that lovely label with a Gold Metallic Thread bow topped off with a trio of pearls.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.  If you’re wanting to add the Blended Seasons Bundle to your collection, just click on the picture to go to my Online Store!

Happy Stamping!


Happy Friday to you and why don’t you enjoy a glass of bubbly for whatever event you are celebrating!

I’m playing along with The Paper Players Celebration theme challenge and what better way that sharing a glass of bubbly!

The greetings come from the Balloon Celebration stamp set which were the inspiration for this card.  Of course, I had to cut out those two glasses of bubbly from the new Half Full stamp set!

This piece from Tranquil Textures Designer series paper makes the perfect bubble-filled background!

Here’s the full list of everything that I used.

Have a fabulous weekend and Happy Stamping to you!


Happy Tuesday and since it’s been rather rainy and stormy here, I decided to go with a bold and bright yellow for today’s card.

I played with the Amazing Congratulations photopolymer stamp set (a 3-step stamping technique) and backed it with that bright piece of designer paper from the 2018-2020 InColor stack.

TIP:  When using this stamp set, I like to stamp the outline of the word first, then it’s easy to add the other two parts of the word in different colours.

CAS(E) this sketch posted this card layout and, as you can see, I turned my card to give room for the greeting.  And yes, I did “fussy-cut” so it could be popped up on the card.

It didn’t take a lot of products to make this card so here is the “short” list for you. 

I hope that you have sunshine wherever you are and Happy Stamping to you!


Hi there and welcome!  This week I’m going to “case” (copy and share everything) a few of the beautiful cards that you can find in the Annual Catalogue.  This is great if you are stuck for ideas and I’m starting off with this picture perfect platypus from the Postcard Pals stamp set.

You can find this cutie-pie on page 48 of the catalogue and you will notice that my version isn’t exactly as show but close.  This guy is coloured with our Stampin’ Blends combos with are perfect for adding shading in all the right places.  Because these blends are alcohol based make sure to stamp the image first with our classic inks(water based) so your outline doesn’t smear.

You will notice that I used the Whisper White Classic Weave ribbon – in order to get the Pool Party colour, I used the Stampin’ Blend to add colour.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

I love this card as it would make a great Father’s day greeting!  Stay tuned for a few more “cased” project this week and Happy Stamping!


I really love the “fabulous at any age” greeting that’s in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and couldn’t resist using it for this card!

The Accented Blooms stamp set works beautifully with the carried-over Tailored Tag Punch so I used it cut out the centre piece.

There’s a group called Colour Inkspirations over on Facebook that posts some pretty colour combinations so this card uses the latest group.  Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray are the colours that I used along with an Aqua Painter.  Accented Blooms is such a pretty set and you can find it Here.

This post wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t show you everything that I used so here is the list.



Happy Stamping!


When I saw the Serene Garden Bundle on the Demonstrator pre-order list, I fell in love!  Of course it was one of the first items on my list!

The images have matching Framelits that emboss as well as cut out!  I also had fun with colouring with some new Colour Markers!  How does Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Foam and Call Me Clover sound?    They are 3 of the new colours that adorn that beautiful bird!

Showing off these beautiful images was made easy with the CAS(E) this sketch layout!

 I can hardly wait until you can sit down with the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and enjoy all of the beautiful new items!  If you are a present customer of mine, your catalogue will be on its way to you very soon!  If you are new to me and not attached to another Demonstrator, Contact Me and I’ll get a catalogue to you!

Here’s the short list of some of the products I used for today’s card.  (NOTE:  I can’t show all of the details for the new items just yet so they are not on the list)

Have a fabulous day and Happy Stamping to you!


Happy Friday and today I’m showcasing a Retiring stamp set that will truly light up someone’s day!

The set is Marquee Messages and it’s perfect for a “you’re awesome” card with it’s lighted arrow!  I used versamark to stamp the image, added some Copper Embossing Powder and heat set it!  Then, I stamped the word “awesome” cut out the whole thing.  The circle was cut separately and then attached to the sign before it was popped up with stamping’ dimensionals on the card front.

Since the beautiful Eastern Palace Specialty Designer paper is also retiring, I had to use a bit of it to set off the background for this “lit up” card!

Here’s the list of products that I used.

Make sure to check the Retiring products on my Website, some things are going quickly and they will all be gone on May 31, 2018.


Today’s post is giving you another sneak peak at the Share What You Love Suite – I’m addicted, especially with the beautiful paper that is a part of this suite!

And here is just a bit of that beautiful designer paper!  There isn’t much stamping on this card as I cut out that bundle of pretty flowers from the designer paper and added them with Mini Glue Dots.  The bunches of small flowers were stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with Clear Emboss powder to help them blend in with the card base.

Notice anything new about that card base?  It’s an “everything old is new again” colour that is coming back in the new Annual Catalogue.

This Share What You Love Suite will be available to you on May 1st, 2018 so you will be able to fall in love with all of the beautiful designs in the new Designer papers!  You will have 3 choices for this bundle – the Just Getting Started, the A Little More please and the big one – the Gotta Have It All Bundle.  Stay tuned to visit my Online Store on May 1, 2018!

Happy Stamping!
