Sealed With Love and Valentine Four-Fold Card

I had a blast making this card today.  I am loving this stamp set, Stampin' Up Sealed with Love and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits.  I also used the Designer Paper that goes with the set.

I got the directions for making this card from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts here:

I made a couple of cards like this at Christmas and loved the way they turned out.  So I'm still going with them!  They are pretty easy once you do one.

I also made this card with the same stamp set and framelits.

A Paisley Birthday

Another card made with the Paisley collection.  The paper is from the Petals and Paisleys DSP.  The "flowers" were cut from the Paisley Framelits in Rich Razzleberry.  I used gold foil paper on this one.

The base is the Navy glimmer from Paper Trey Ink.  The next is Stampin' Up Delightful Dijon.
The stamp is from a Close to my Heart set that I have used many times.  I was really happy with the way this card turned out.  It's really beautiful in person.

Copper Foil Leaf

I've been loving the look of the copper foil paper and the copper embossing powders since I first saw them in the catalog.  I finally got a chance to play with them.

The designer paper is from the Petals and Paisley's series.  The leaf is from Botanicals thinlits from last year's catalog and of course cut in the copper foil paper.
The stamp is from Paisleys and Posies set, which is one of my favorites.  I stamped it in the copper embossing powder.

I made this card for our Stars card swap and was very happy with the way it turned out.

Challenge 319

Color challenge:  Flirty Flamingo, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron

I used the Sunshine Wishes Thinlit for the heart in Flirty Flamingo.  The flowers were punched out with the Petit Petals punch. The word thanks was from the Crazy About You set on the retired Word Window Punch with Mint Macaron ink.  The base and the ribbon is Emerald Envy and the paper is Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.

I like to finish the inside of my cards.  I really like that it this set has a sentiment for the inside of the card too.

This card turned out really cute.

Thanks for coming by and come back soon.

Jar of Haunts

I could not resist this mummy in the jar!  So I bought the Jar of Haunts stamp set and the Everyday Jar Thinlits.

I had to let my mummy have friends so I add a Jack-O-Lantern jar and what I call a Grinch jar because the eyes remind me of the Grinch Who Stole Christmas.   The Happy Halloween came from another random set that I had.  Not sure who made it.  Then I stamped the candy corn, colored them in and cut them apart to sprinkle across the card.
I love my Haunted Jars.

Thanks for coming by.  Come back again soon.

Sweet Cupcakes

I made these for the swap in my monthly Stars (stampers) meeting. They turned out really cute.  It's hard to see the sweet in the photos, but they are glittery and sparkly in person..  I made the first pink one for my Granddaughter and liked it so well I decided to make it for my swap.

When I saw this set Sweet Cupcakes in the Stampin' Up catalog, I thought "I don't really need another cupcake stamp."  But I am glad I changed my mind.  This is a 3-step stamp and it really turns out nicely and the sayings are really nice.

I like stamp sets that have sentiments for the inside also!

Thanks for coming by for a visit.  Come back again soon..

Thoughtful Branches

I ordered the Thoughtful Branches bundle at almost the last minute!  But I am so glad I did.  I really love the cards that I have made with it so far and I am just getting started!

I absolutely adore the Hydrangea stamp and thinlit (it can also be a tree top in this set).  Could you tell.  It's beautiful in any color


This bottom card is also a tree top turned into a flower.  The color is Rich Razzleberry which looks almost black in the photo.  I stamped it full color and then a one off a couple of times to get the color variation.  The ribbon is Sweet Sugarplum because I didn't have any Rich Razzleberry ribbon but I think the two colors coordinate quite nicely.
