Full House for Stamping!


I had the pleasure of having these lovely ladies at my house for a Technique Class. We made two cards and a sweet Valentine’s pocket from a Paper Pumpkin kit.

I Wanted To Use Soup!

I liked a card on Pintrest from Carolina Evans and decided to use her inspiration and layout for a swap I’m participating in. I was looking for a reason to use the Get Well Soup stamp and since no one got sick a swap was the perfect reason!


I stamped the image twice, once Cherry Cobbler cardstock and once on Whisper White cardstock. I cut the bowl out of the Cherry Cobbler piece and embossed it with the Happy Heart Textured Embossing Folder and then I cut out the “soup” area of the image. I colored the “soup” area on the Whisper White piece with a Hello Honey marker, then I adhered the Cherry Cobbler piece over the Whisper White piece and the colored “soup” area was visible. Hope you like it!

One Sheet Wonder with Weekly Deals

Our weekly deals includes Painted Blooms, one of my favorite Designer Series Papers that will be gone after June 2nd. Using just one sheet from this set I was able to create six simple but great cards. I also used two of my favorite retiring In Color card stocks. I completed these cards in about 30 minutes, here are the dimensions:

  • Card Base: 8-½ x 5-½ folded in half (alternating Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding)
  • 2nd Layer: 4-2/16 x 5-6/16
  • Designer Series Paper 4 x 5-¼

I put the layers together, stamped my greeting and added a few Rhinestones and done!

Good Things with Tree Builder Punch

I was searching for card samples from the new catalog and came across a card from Lydia’s blog, Understand Blue.

 I just loved the simplicity of the card. Below is my version, I changed just a few things but basically it’s the same simple card that in opinion says a lot!

From the Herd and Then Some!

I was asked to make good-bye card for fellow co-worker who was leaving and of course I had to use the From the Herd stamp set again. This time I colored, added texture and had some fun!

I made the card look like it had one of those swinging western bar doors, or least that was the look I was going for! I know it was a good-bye card but I didn’t have a die cut with the word good-bye so hello it was! Well the animals were saying hello before their goodbyes (that works for me).

I did some coloring using the retired and removed Stampin’Up! Blendabilities…whaaaa, I’m going to miss them!

Hope you like the card, I had fun making it!
