Card Details:   Base – 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, top layer – 5 1/4 x 4.

The background was created using the stamp off technique. The design on the pink flower was created by using the flower stamp from the Sunshine Sayings set. I used Pink Pirouette classic ink, stamped the flower several times on Pink Pirouette card stock, then used Sunshine Wishes thinlit die with the Big Shot.

The design on the yellow flower was created using the Crushed Curry Color Theory Designer Series paper stack (no stamping involved, just run it through the Big Shot).


Huge Craft Supply Event

IMG_1302I’m holding a liquidation sale this weekend, May 12th and 13th. Stamps, inks, paper, punches, and ribbon. Products from Stampin’ Up!, Fiskars, Sizzix and so much more. Come by between 8:00 – 4:00. 7738 S. Flower St. Littleton, CO 80128.  If you’re not local, please feel free to call to see if I have what you’re looking for.

I’ve been M.I.A.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been preparing for a local vendor event. Now that that’s done, it’s back to business. I found this oooo so cute project at Scrimpingmommy, Amanda Charlesworth, a demonstrator in the U.K. She calls this a lollipop card.  I think they are adorable. These would be really cute in a Easter Basket or a bouquet for Mother’s Day. How about a table centerpiece for a baby or bridal shower. The ideas are endless. They’re not difficult to make and are well worth the time.

Supplies used from the Occasions catalog: Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, Lace Dollies, Falling in Love Embellishments. Items from the Annual catalog: Soft Sky card stock, 5/8″ Organza Ribbon, Duet Banner punch and Delicate White Dollies. I also used the metallic ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. I picked up the paper straws at Michaels. The blue ribbon has been retired.

If you’d like to purchase any of these items don’t hesitate to contact me. Remember, Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st. For every $50 you spend (before taxes & shipping) you can pick a Sale-a-Bration item.

Thanks for stopping by.


Happy Thursday!

img_1242img_1243I ❤ Thursday’s, the last working day of my week.  It seems I’m always trying to figure out when I can steal a few minutes to stamp. I feel like my life is crazy. Working a full time job, raising kids, maintaining relationships, cleaning, shopping, cooking.  Wow it makes me tired just thinking about it. On those occasions when I’m pressed for time, a quick and easy card, like this one satisfies my stamping craving. Hope you like it!

Happy Mother’s Day

img_1241I should probably be focusing on Easter, but this bundle screams Mother’s Day. I’ve seen this basic card design all over Pinterest and YouTube. My inspiration came from Dawn Griffith.  She’s amazing!!

This card uses the Floral Phrases stamp set and the Detailed Floral thinlits which can be found in the annual catalog. When purchased as a bundle you save 10%. In addition I used Wisteria Wonder classic ink and card stock, Very Vanilla card stock and the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

Remember…..enjoy the simple things in life!

Have a GREAT day.

Balloon Adventures Z Fold

img_1234Check it out….it’s bigger than the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. I was in the mood to mix it up a bit, live on the edge (haha) so I made this card 6 x 5 1/2 and I really like it. I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set from the Occasions catty (one of my favorites) and the Balloon pop-up thinlits die. Bermuda Bay & Crumb Cake card stock and inks and Serene Scenery Designer Series paper. I also used Enamel Shapes from the Brights Collection and the Banner Triple punch.
